My friend Kyle wants dreads. He actually wanted them before i did but he never got them because of work and frankly i think he's to lazy to do them himself. Anyways, so he asked me to dread his hair in the near future with this other chick he knows who had dreads (he has a lot of hair). I'm just concerned and he's concerned as well, because it's already difficult for him to get a job with this long hair that if he get's dread locks it might be harder for him to get a job. And he needs a job especially when he's supporting himself, he also doesn't live in an area where there are many jobs available so it's sort of a lose/lose for him except he really wants them and he has perfect hair for it. He has great work ethic considering he's been working since he was 15, so it shouldn't matter that he has dreads right? I wish it didn't matter, and i feel like jobs should be more lenient now that there is an increase of people getting tattoos and all sorts of body modifications, what's "professional looking" even mean? I figure you just shouldn't smell stinky or have your private parts all out and about and that should be enough along with a good work ethic.

Hello out there, i don't usually have very great intro's but I've had an odd week. Sort of in a little funk but, I'm sure there will be a better outcome anyways. I've just had some criticism lately but i was bracing myself for it anyways. I just think it's so weird how judgmental and strait forward people can be, because I'm not like that at all. i never really put myself around people like that. But the past week Ive been surrounded with people like that and it's just sort of frustrating because of the lack of interest for someones person rather than their appearance. All of the ridicule just happens to be when my dreads are shrinking too. I'm totally fine with all of my my phases of dreading but I'm just more comfortable with long hair. I'm just baffled and need a little vacation or something. I hope my hair starts growing soon though, it used to be down my back now it's just a bit lower than my shoulders. but I've just been letting my hair go wild and free and hopefully i can do the same.
