Journal entry #8: new year, new hair


02nd January 2018

I’ve been wanting to cut my hair for the past few years now and I made the decision to finally do it. I’ve never been to a hairdresser prior to getting my hair cut, so the experience was delightful! The hairdresser was patient and walked me through some styles on how to cut my hair if I was feeling daring, although she kept asking if I was sure I wanted to hack my hair off. When she realized that I was serious, she got down to the business of cutting my hair to suit my face. 

I love my long curly hair, but short hair feels fabulous!

And I just want to touch it all the time although I’m already used to the length.

What a way to kick off 2018! I am very pleased with my haircut and I look forward to styling it accordingly.

50 Foods #4: Lamb

Origin: The Fertile Crescent
Date: c. 11,000 BP
Type: Livestock

A sheep in its first year is called a lamb, and so is its meat.

Whenever I see the word lamb, I associate it with the Bible, given the numerous verses on the livestock. One of my favorite is Genesis 22:7:

Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” And he said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”

In the Bible, the lamb was used as a sacrificial animal, and Jesus is “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). People who stray away from God are referred to as lost sheep (God is our Shepard). Seven lambs were sacrificed on each day of the Passover (Numbers 28: 16-25).

Would I eat it?: Only when it’s shredded and stuffed in gyros, other than that, I don’t eat lamb.
