I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    You Go Roni! That is fabulous news and I wish you all the best. I can’t wait to see the pics of your new do~

    I had that hair cut for so many years. I’ve gotten used to the longer hair but somedays it annoys me so much.

    And congrats on your changes. You have a lot on your plate so hopefully this will make it easier.


    May 13, 2010

    Wow Roni! Lots of exciting things going on. I saw your hair post on Facebook…I’ve seen you hint at going short again for a while so I guess I’m not surprised. I used to totally have short hair myself but it was around the time I was married (not anymore, bad memories) and so I don’t think I could ever go back. I think you can totally rock it! Girl you could pull off bald with a paper bag on your head! Thanks as always for sharing…you rock and continue to inspire!

    Favorite video of all time! Good luck to you Roni, you’ll blow it all out of the water. Can’t wait to read the book (s)!

    Congrats on all the changes! Just think of all the nice summer days you won’t have to call in sick hehe, you can enjoy them guilt free :) Good Luck with the hair thing. I’ve always wanted to go short but I’m just too chicken, I always end up changing my mind.


    May 13, 2010

    good luck roni .you rock !
    im sure anything you do will be great.

    Dang it. Now that stupid song’s stuck in my head.

    “…from who you are into who you’re gonna be!”

    Hopefully my brain can replace it with the David Bowie song instead…


    May 13, 2010

    I’m with you Roni, no one can keep up that pace. It’s insane! I would not work of I didn’t have to either. I recently cut my days back by half and love love love it!! Money is not everything. Good luck, I’m sure you’ll succeed in whatever you do!! :)

    Super cute hair! Good for you embracing the change. . . I need some changes, but X and Y and Z. :) Later it will be easier, right? Can’t wait to see the new pics!


    May 14, 2010

    Best wishes in your changes! And yes, I think you were doing to much in just 24 hours. It was affecting your sleeping, giving you funks… you are just human, you know! But I’m sure you are going to do great on your own. We are all witnesses of your talents. I would go solo if I could too :) Too bad I’m going to be alone in the 1-hour-trip to and from work again LOL

    Good for you for knowing what is best for you and for not being afraid to just do it! You go girl….xo

    the moment that you make the decision and don’t look the moment that doors will fly open. Have fun walking through them. Excited to see what’s around the corner for you.


    May 14, 2010

    Roni, I’m so mad at you! I made your sweet potato fries for my family one night and now they expect them ALL. THE. TIME. The husband even told me that he hates sweet potatos, but now I’m spending about half an hour each night cutting up slices.

    Seriously, I can’t believe my family has started requesting stuff like sweet potatos, broccoli, and brussel sprouts. We even eat spinach for breakfast (although, I guess we should be eating kale)!


    May 14, 2010

    Some fantastic changes all around! Can’t wait to read more as things unfold….


    May 14, 2010

    It took me till my 30’s to decide that short hair is better on me and definitely makes the morning go easier!! Enjoy all the changes!

    You go, Roni! I recently committed to a major job/life change…today is my LAST DAY. Ahhh! Ridiculously exciting. Good for you for taking the leap. Looking forward to new hair cut pictures.


    May 14, 2010

    Love the Brady Bunch reference!!! Good luck Roni. You are so inspirational and deserve to be able to do the things you want in your career. You will love going back to short hair. Everytime I say I am going to grow it out, two months later I am at the salon going “what was I thinking???”


    May 14, 2010

    ABSOLUTELY love your drive and motivation not to settle for anything less that what you’re capable of. Yes, it’s so important and healthy to realign our priorities in life and what makes us feel complete and satisfied!! Makes me wish I had done something similar when I was younger, but find myself making similar changes as I grow older and LOVE the way it makes me feel fulfilled!!!! Go girl!!!

    So many exciting changes coming up! I’m happy and excited for you!


    May 14, 2010

    Exciting stuff, Roni!! Good for you!


    May 14, 2010

    Good for you! No matter what the change, as long as you and your family are happier it will be for the better.


    May 14, 2010

    Exciting! As someone who only recently started working for myself, I feel confident in saying that if you’re made for it, you know it. I’m excited for you! Although I don’t really know what you did at your job at the school, I know what you do at this “other” job and you are darn good at that! :)
    Also, I’ve been meaning to tell you this on Twitter, but I think that haircut will look great on you! Have fun!


    May 14, 2010

    So many changes for you! Can’t wait to see your new hair do!

    excited to see the new do! Since I’ve been reading your blog over the years you have made a lot of career changes and it always seems to work out, but good luck anyways!


    May 14, 2010

    AWESOME!!! Happy for you that you have the opportunity to work for yourself. And I TOTALLY can’t wait to see the new haircut!!! =)


    May 14, 2010

    Good for you Roni! I work out of my house also and i love it. As for the hair you have such a pretty face you could do any hair do and still look cute. Can’t wait to see the pics!!

    Good luck & Congrats Roni!! I’m jealous, I wish I could work for myself!!!


    May 14, 2010

    Whew–and here I was worried that you may go the other way and give up the Blogs to concentrate on your other work and activities. I’ll rest easier tonight, knowing that we are somewhere up on the priority list! :) Thinking of you as you wrap up one phase of life/work and transition to another. I know anything you tackle will be approached with lots of hard work, positivity and a healthy dose of self-care–you’re an inspiration in accepting the things that can’t change, and changing the things you can!


    May 14, 2010

    i just grew my hair out of the jamie lee style . loved it! super easy.


    May 14, 2010

    oh I do not know what to say about the haircut. I like semi long hair. My husband won’t like it either what does your husband think. Oh and are you going blonde. I did and won’t go back.
    Have fun with it
    ps hope the job works out too.


    May 14, 2010

    I knew it! Good luck with the job thing.

    About the hair – I love short hair and I just don’t really look that good with long hair either. Glad you’re going for it.


    May 14, 2010

    I am excited and happy for you on the changes you are making. I have always wondered how you could keep up long term with all you are doing. I wish you the best and can’t wait to see the hair do pics.


    May 14, 2010

    Somehow I knew you were leaving your job. You are always the planner. I know you will succeed.


    May 14, 2010

    Congratulations on your decisions. Can’t wait to see the pictures.
    But most importantly…I DON’T remember that scene. I thought I knew them all!!


    May 15, 2010

    Awe I love your long hair…but I too leave the house with wet hair way to often and have been thinking about going shorter :)

    Good luck on your big decision! I’m sure things will turn out fine :)

    Roni — Congrats on all the changes! I know you will love going back to your time being your time for all the creative projects you have lined up! Looking forward to following!


    May 21, 2010

    Congrats on your changes! As for the hair…I take the clippers to my head regularly–it’s shorter than some crew cuts! I wrote a post about it. Short hair is WAY easier!
