I just went for my haircut and was met with a dilemma. "You can have you hair cut for free if you agree to our trainee doing it". 'Hmmm......' I thought. It's only a fiver, but I am now a fully fledged (almost) student, so anything is a bonus. On the other hand, do I really want to risk having a monstrosity on my head less than a week before I meet 1000s of new people who I'll be living with for three years?
I went for the trainee, and I must say, I'm disappointed. There's no gaping holes and my ears are still intact but you can tell it's just not the same class of cut as it would otherwise been. Oh well. It was free.
