the day after a haircut, i wake up tired and groggy and wanting very much to stay in bed (just like every other morning), but then i remember that there is something special about the day, something is different, something is new. and then i am eager to get up. a new item of clothing sometimes has a similar effect, if i plan to wear it that day. the "oh goody" effect with a good cut lasts about a week. maybe a little more. with clothing, it's about the same. then the item becomes "just" regular. i still enjoy it, but it doesn't give me the "oh goodies."
do you ever get a newness high, and how long does it last?
