I will begin by saying that you look very pretty with yer new do and that you do not in any way look anything but feminine.
I'm with you on the convenience of having short hair. I hate it when mine gets over 1/2" long. I save a lot of $ on hair products like shampoo, conditioner, gel. When it's this short you can wash it with soap or body wash. No blow drying, no brushing, no tangles, you can jump out of bed and go to the store without a hat. The best part is that the texture of my buzzed head makes my fiance (I love to say that word, I just got engaged) run her fingernails over my scalp all the time-a practise that feels oh so good.
