It's been coming for a while, and with the help of the wife this weekend, I finally manned-up and made the decision that needed to be done: yesterday I had most of my hair cut off (see right).
It was basically forced upon me by my increasingly obvious hair-loss that has been happening over the past 4 or so years, and I still think it's criminal and unjust that for a man in his mid-twenties it had come to this. My father lost his hair in his late-30s/early-40s (fair enough), but at least my brother is pretty much in the same boat as me.
As I keep getting told "it's only vanity", and to an extent that is true (I am happily married), but it still sucks to happen.
So I guess this is as good as any as a marker for the end of my youth. The biggest plus is that I no longer have to style my hair on a daily basis, but the negative (other than the obvious look-wise) is how often it'll need to be cut/trimmed to make it look presentable.
We played indoor tonight, in what was a bye game and got absolutely hammered 12-1 by the fill-in team. It's been a long time since we've gotten beat like that. It was, to put it street-correctly, totally whack.
We were pretty terrible, and they finished nearly all of there chances. We're really punching above our weight in the division we're in, which sucks but I guess it's fair because for many years we were always amongst the top four teams in the divisions we played in, so I guess it's our turn to fill the bottom half of the table for a while.

You have wonderful eyes and a beautiful smile (and you must not forget your passionate heart) and that is what stands out the most not the style of your hair.
awww shucks, thanks Mum. But you probably do have a slightly biased opinion 😉
to be honest, I think you look better with it short! The beard makes the whole image of short/no hair work on you. Very Vin Diesel-esque.
Let your hair grow into a ponytail, get a Harley, strap Despina to the back seat,and enjoy the ride!No-one will know what is under the helmet!
now the whole family's getting involved! :S
lucas you do know that losing your hair is a sign of how masculine you are...it means you have more testosterone in your body...you should be proudd =)
biggest problem with hair loss is sun cancer. don't forget to slip slop and slap your noggin'!
hehe yeah true, i'm wearing hats everywhere now! It's actually a little liberating: no more time spent styling, and now I can wear all the headware i want without fear of messing up the style!
