    This is my typically my philosophy, too.
    Why dress up for work, when I'm shoved in a corner?

    I do clean up good though! I'm just waiting for my hair to grow back out. I feel masculine without it, sometimes.

    This article annoys me. It does not really go into any biological reasons why this happens; it just points to social media. I am not "addicted to pregnancy" because of social media.

    Oh man, one time a guy friend was at my house and I was explaining to him that I do not do anything with my hair most days. He was like, "You're exaggerating, you have to at least brush it."

    ...nope.

    That's why I keep my hair so short - so I don't have to brush it or blow it dry.

    I want to cut my hair off again, because I can't stand doing my hair. But with the little time I leave myself to get ready in the morning, it's easiest to pull it back. The only time you will see my hair down or not under a hat is when I have come from the hair salon, and then I'll not wash it for days so it can stay "nice" for a bit.

    I wish my short hair was low maintenance, but I find I have to style it because it's so thin and fine it would just sit flat to my head if I didn't. But if I'm going out to just grab groceries or whatever and don't feel like styling it, I'll put a cap on.

    I like your hair style right now. I prefer the blonde over the purple, but if you prefer the purple you should do it. If it's ok with your job.

    I need to find a new salon. The lady who had been doing my hair isn't answering my texts. She was kind of sketchy to begin with, but she was in my budget. I keep looking at groupons. I want to lighten it up for the summer again. I am thinking a lighter red with blonder highlights.

    Ok I found an article, and I'm going to put it HERE:


    http://theamericanreader.com/green-s...hy-it-matters/

    I haven't finished reading it yet, but I remember going to many, MANY concerts and club shows alone growing up, and if people asked me about going alone, they were always somewhat surprised that I never got attacked. This article is actually about hitchiking on the road, but my situation seems tangentially related. Anyway I HAVE gone on many road trips for shows alone as well.

    I have to report that my first groupon purchase was a total success. I have gotten quite a few compliments on my new hair. I am now going to see about getting other deals through there.

    Going on solo road trips to a concert isn't really anything like the experience of hitchhiking, I don't think, but you are right in that being a woman who is alone in public often signals something problematic, worrisome, confusing because it is at odds with the narrative of womanhood that our cultural landscape has fostered for so long.

    The article she wrote for GQ in 2012 - The Truck Stop Killer is good as well. And I've got Sheltering Sky on my bookshelf from an ex boyfriend but I haven't read it yet.

    Whereas a man on the road might be seen as potentially dangerous, potentially adventurous, or potentially hapless, in all cases the discourse is one of potential. When a man steps onto the road, his journey begins. When a woman steps onto that same road, hers ends....

    ...A man on the road is caught in the act of a becoming. A woman on the road has something seriously wrong with her. She has not “struck out on her own.” She has been shunned. And once one person has shunned her, the next will as well. Simply the fact that she is out there says something about her is frightening.....

    ...This is what it means to have no narrative outside of victimization and violence: it means wasting time constructing your moral right to tell a story in the first place, it means watching it get choked in the crib…
    (this is a good representation of her argument, for anyone feeling lazy)

    I hitchhiked once, but with a female friend, in Wales. A station wagon loaded with 12 year old boys picked us up.

    edit: My friend had arrived in the British Isles a couple weeks before I did and spent that time with another friend in Ireland, and there she learned that sometimes the only way to get somewhere was to hitchhike (she didn't know how to drive herself so couldn't rent a car).

    I started going to the movies by myself when I was 16, and I remember then having to explain it to bewildered people. And I will never forget when I was 18, like the first weeks of college, going to the cafeteria for dinner (alone!), saying hi to my friend who was sitting on a bench outside and who revealed to me that she'd been waiting there for 20 minutes because she was really hungry, but didn't want to go in and eat by herself. And her friend that was supposed to go with texted her cancelling and she'd already biked all the way over and was now waiting til another friend got out of class and could join her. Did I want to wait and eat with them? No bitch, I'm starving.

    "You eat alone?"
    "All the fucking time"
    "Aren't you worried about....I dunno....like....what people might think?"
    "I assume they'll think I'm hungry, Janelle."
    "Woooooow"

    I'm going to stop reading right now as I'm talking about driving almost a thousand miles by myself later this month. :P

    I used to drive a lot alone when I was young, before there was cell phone coverage in most areas, and never had any issues. Used to hitchhike occasionally and most of the time people seemed more worried to take me in the car than I was to take a ride from them.

    i found out recently that my mom was furious that my dad sent me to switzerland for a family wedding by myself at 26. as though being alone in one of the richest cities in the world is some sort of scary concern.

    BTW, I love going to the movies alone. Movies are not a social experience normally, so I don't understand why it's weird to go solo.

    Eating alone is something that more people seem to have trouble with. We were just talking about this last night! I have no problem eating alone but tend to bring some sort of armor against the world... like a book, newspaper, playing with my phone, or just even keeping my head down. It's tougher (but really great people watching) to just eat alone looking ahead without worrying about the appearance or that someone might approach you.

    Yes. I've noticed that too. When I move, I'm planning to do some loafing about restaurants and coffee shops without any defenses up to see if I can meet interesting strangers.

    I go to bars and movies by myself all the time, but I always have a book or my iPad. I only engage with others if I'm comfortable. I road tripped around California, Nevada, and Arizona by myself for 3 weeks and was hyper aware of the awkward glances and weird attention a young girl coming through by herself seemed to create. I traveled around Europe by myself for 2 months and not once felt uneasy.

    A little late to this part, but I go to the movies alone all the time. My movie tastes are not the same as "normal" people generally, so sometimes I can't find someone to go with, and a lot of time it's more fun alone so I can just immerse myself in the experience. The last movie I loved in the theatre was Under the Skin, and I'm not sure a lot of people would get that movie, much less go with me. (Scar-Jo is a predatory sex alien)

    YES! Movies, shows, restaurants. I'm not ashamed to go alone... shows especially. Music (ie the bands I liked) was never an interest I had in common with anyone.

    For some reason, I keep reading articles about hitchhiking, and now I want to try it, but as a woman, I'd probably get treated like a sex worker.
