7 Reasons Why You Should Cut Your Hair Short Right Now

7 Reasons Why You Should Cut Your Hair Short Right Now

It will water your crops and clear your pores, among other things.

We're coming up on the first week of classes for a lot of folks—and for some, their very first foray into college living—which means it's time for those New Semester Resolutions. For some of us, it's promises to actually make use of the campus gym facilities; for others, it's joining a new club they didn't have time for last semester. The start of a fresh academic year is a great opportunity to shake up your college routine or make a big change, from a new wardrobe to a new study habit.

My big change this semester was cutting my hair.

I've had my hair on basically the entire spectrum of lengths. I've done it all: Cousin It-style locks, shoulder-length and finally, a pixie cut. And I gotta say, pixie cuts are pretty great. So, in honor of my new 'do, here are my top seven reasons why you should cut your hair short right now.

1. Your just-rolled-out-of-bed hair is on point, all the time.

May as well throw away your hairbrush, because you'll never need it again. Short hair looks good no matter how little you take care of it.

2. Bad weather? Pssh.

Wind will now make your hair an artfully-tossed masterpiece instead of a monstrous wreck. Rain? Who cares? Hair dries! This will no longer be you:

3. It's economical.

You use way less product when you have less hair. On a college budget, we gotta save where we can, so stretch your shampoo and hairspray by chopping off all of your hard-to-care-for hair.

4. It takes way less time.

Who has the patience to dry, brush, straighten and style every morning? Nobody! But with short hair, you can get away with a 10-second brushing job and be good to go for the rest of the day. No more this:

5. No more hair in inconvenient places.

Your hair is now too short to fall in your food, get stuck in your collar or tangle up in your zipper. So much less suffering involved with short hair!

6. Your shower drain is finally clean.

With less hair to shed, your shower drain will no longer look like this:

And finally:

7. It looks super cute!

No matter how much work you put into it, you'll look sharp, professional and confident all day, every day.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

I Just Discovered Giant Crayons And My Life Is Complete

The coloring capabilities of one of my favorite mediums has just expanded exponentially!

This morning I discovered that there is such a thing as the "Giant Crayon" and I couldn't be happier. Although I may be the last to know about this amazing advancement in coloring technology, this realization in no way dampens my excitement at the prospect of one day collecting them all. At the moment it is unclear whether or not these massive implements of creativity come in sets and as a lone massive crayon cost around $25 before shipping it is unlikely that a set would cost any less than $100 if only the basic four original colors are included.

A set of eight then being estimated at $200, there are textbooks which cost less...

Crayons, although they may seem like a child's plaything are that and so much more. The fact that there are now options ranging from the miniature to the massive is mindbogglingly amazing to me, a coloring enthusiast. They come in all shapes and sizes and can be easily melted into a mold for the perfect form or design. This addition of the giant crayon, however, can only mean great things.

The scope of coloring projects can now expand at a much larger rate. Imagine the time saved when filling in large areas of solid color. Art made with melted crayons can take on a new dimension where instead of sacrificing multiple standard crayons to get the pigmentation desired, one now only needs to melt off a small layer of wax from their "big brother of sorts."

Its safe to say my excitement probably goes above and beyond the norm for coloring supplies, but let's be honest, the addition of giant crayons is at the very least a big deal.
