How to have a Mental Breakdown

Shelby Geiger, Staff Writer

We have all seen those videos of girls dying their hair or cutting their bangs well I’m going to tell you the ultimate guide to these interesting times. One of the first things you need to do is have a breakdown. Like a dumb boy that you thought something was happening but really he was playing you or stressing out over school. Now you’re ready for the next step. You now need to go to the store and get hair dye or a pair of scissors. If you go to your nearest Walmart a box of dye will be about $10. Now one of the most important parts what color do you want. Do you want to go full neon pink or a more natural color like black or blonde. If you get a bright color you might look like a k-pop star but if you get a natural color it won’t be as noticeable. You decide to get two colors purple and blonde and you have naturally brown hair. You buy your hair dye in the self-checkout because the conversation with the cashier would be too embarrassing. You get your hair dye and head home. When you get home you change and begin the process.  You prepare the dyes according to the box. You realize you don’t know how you’re going to do it and whether it will look good or not, but because you are so mentally unstable you decide to dye your bangs pink and the rest blonde. It will take you about an hour to get it finished and while you are doing this you should have instant regret but it is too late now because it looks like you really have just given up. 

Now you wait for the dye to sink in for however long the box says during this time you can look at how stupid you look and that this was a terrible decision maybe cry a little. It is finally time you wash it out and look at your new look. You want to scream but it is so late at night that you would wake everyone in the house. You finish washing your hair and decide to dry it and style it. You look at it and realize it’s not all that bad but your going to regret it in the morning. And that is How to have a mental breakdown and dye your hair.  I interviewed Suzana Chavez about her mental breakdown and here is what she had to say about it. Why did you decide to do it? “ I wanted to take control of my life.” Suzana decided to dye her hair black with pink bangs then she dyed the pink blue. I asked her why she did these colors and she said because they are bright. I then asked her if she had ever dyed her hair before this. She told me that she dyed has dyed it before. And that she might do it again in the future. In the end a mental breakdown can lead to a lot of crazy decisions.
