The first picture was taken when I was just starting college. I had long hair because I was a musician back then, and I was really in to the whole Rock-n-Roll image. Plus, everyone said they loved my hair. I kept it that long all throughout highschool and for my first semester in college, but cut it off when I joined a fraternity.
The second picture was when I was changing dramatically as far as my self identity and what things really mattered to me. I was no longer concerned with how my physical appearence was accepted by society. I was and still am also deeply into Buddism. I love this state of myself, the best of both.
