I got a Mohawk style hair cut to cross it off my bucket list.

bucket list life !

People who know me know that crossing items off of my bucket list is one of my favorite hobbies. I’m always thinking about the next item that I want to cross off and planning when I’m going to do it. I started my bucket list back in 2012 and I began blogging about my bucket list in 2015. I've added many items to my bucket list over the years and I now have a total of three hundred items on my bucket list. I have crossed off what feels like to me a large number of items off my bucket list. However, I don't have the exact number. Some of my favorite items that I have crossed off my bucket list include meeting Alice Cooper, going to WrestleMania, going to Epcot, going to the Mall of America, becoming a vegetarian and winning first place in a contest or competition. Some items on my list are more anxiety inducing than others to cross off. Some items are as simple as a plane ticket and a hotel reservation or even as simple as a trip to the store. Other items require more planning and maybe even a pep talk. My most recent item that I crossed off my bucket list is one of those items that would be considered more daring then other list items. I had to give myself a lot of pep talks when it came time to cross this item off my list. I had not crossed any items off my list in 2022 and that was really bothering me so I decided to go for what I consider to be one the harder items on my list. I got my hair cut in a Mohawk style. Get a Mohawk is number 39 on my list. Since it is one of the earlier items on my list that means it is something that I haven wanted for a long time. I was so nervous when I went to go get my haircut. I had no idea how I would look with a Mohawk. I just knew that I had wanted one for a long time and that this was my chance to go for it. I ended up getting a short Mohawk style that is not shaved on the sides. It's very different from how I had my hair before and I was so nervous when I went to go get my haircut. As I was waiting for my turn I wondered if I should go through with getting a Mohawk. Maybe I should just leave or just get my hair shorter but not in a Mohawk style. However, I'm extremely happy to say that I completed this item and I'm so happy I did. I feel so pound of myself for pushing through my anxiety and completing this bucket list item. I kept reminding myself of how long I had wanted to do this. I was so determined that I went ahead and got what I wanted even though my anxiety tried to talk me out of it. I'm still getting used my new hair style but I do truly love it. I've gotten more compliments on my hair then I thought that I would. I love playing with my hair now and putting gel in it. It's so much fun to play around with. I love styling it in different ways. I am also very happy to say that I can still put bows in my hair and they still look super cute. Yes, this item was scary to cross off but I'm glad I did it and it will probably be nothing compared to crossing bungee jumping and sky diving off my bucket list!
