You know how people say everything you need to know you learned in kindergarten? Well I believe a variation of this idea. I think some of the preferences and likes/dislikes I have are due to experiences I had as a child.

Exibit A:

I love Asians. Sometimes I really wish I were Asian. Probably only Christian Siriano, Ashley Cook, and Lindsi Bristow understand this fully. I believe this affinity for Asians and their culture is due to the fact that we moved to Japan when I was 6 months old. Some of the first people I knew and associated with were Asian. Hence the obsession. Since the closest I'll ever get to being Asian is having Harper as a best friend let's move on to...

Exibit B:

I love red hair. Ariel has red hair. My sisters all colored their hair various shades of red when I was 7. When I was in 4th grade my best friend Katie had red hair. Also in 4th grade, my red-headed neighbor William Gallagher and I sat on the bus together on our way home from school. One day we wrote on a piece of paper 3 people we each had a crush on in our school class. We both included each other on our lists. I guess you could say he was my first love. I have always wanted red hair. I figured why not try it out while on my way back to my natural color?

So most of the time when people die their hair it looks fake... this doesn't. Welcome to the club.
