So its been about a month since I last took a pic of my hair...Noticeable changes have certainly occured though only small to see.
One fat dread towards the back which is the eldest n loves to draw as much hair as she can towards her. I call her shaman dread, she's the witch doctor n we all love her. I shall dress her with a special bead when her time is right.
an upside down congo?!.. a section of my hair has already started to form a tight dread at the tip causing it to be blunt and its working its way up 3 sections of hair (its a 3 forming 1 dread!) reminds me of a climbing plant. makes me proud to see it grow from just being a baby loop!
and one more is forming in the same way, her younger sister I hope she's not as greedy.
some more sections have started to knot at the sides of my head but these are thin and one of the youngest compared to the rest and I like the variation
Overall, everyone is doin just fine, lots n lots of congo-ing happening and its rather exciting I don't feel like tearing them apart just yet I feel as if they need to mingle and get to know one another.. all these years of beingseparatedstrands.
so far so good!
about 10 days before the 2 month mark, all my hair has sectioned and knotted except for a bit under my hair...last night I had to pull apart a dread as it was causing a sore spot from roots that were being pulled . I found one dread that has sucked up about 4 or 5 smaller ones, that's going to be a fatty!
I also decided to count them and came to around 38 so far...I hope this will increase!

I got myself a Jiffy seed starting kit at walmart a few days ago. It's like a little baby green house to sprout seeds in, and I planted tomatos, carrots, and lettuce and the lettuce is already sprouting just 2 days after planting!!! I'm so excited! I can't wait until it's warm enough to transplant outside! This crazy Illinois weather is being so unpredictable still last week it was 84 and 2 days ago it was 38 so I'm gonna wait jussttttt a bit longer!

This is my first blog ever . but i've wanted to start one for al ong time so here goes.
After the weekend: lots of my closest people are always asking when i'm going to cut my dreads off. Geeze like they havn't gotten the idea of individuality yet and are still trying to get me to conform. But. i have to say the weekend was good for my self image, small town party bar hosted a male stripper night with standing room only and ladies from every small town around it was fun, and packed with girls who as everyone knows can be the worst haters, but it was all around good fun .i guess because the girls were moslty people i hand't met, yet it was still small town atmopshere i got ALOT of commentary on my hair. all surprisingly, but welcomed verynice .Had to stay home alone at the end of the night, i was onsuch a high since losing the bowling tournament probably because of too many beers, lol, right up until i got home and had to crawl into bed by myself for the first time since, gosh, i don't even know probably march 2011. no sweet pea in the next room, grandma and grandpa were babysitting. hubby is up north working for 6 more weeks (i miss you babe). cold bed, cold blankets, i was at an all time low for a few hours there i guess my heart was cold too. finally fell asleep and dreamed a little dream about friends and good places sunday flew by with visiting like usual. and here we are, sitting out of monday night bowling because i'm still whooped from the weekend. Thank you. goodnight.

Sooo soo so so. I have this one dread on top of my head, kinda comes down by my face... and this mofo is really starting to shape up!! even the part that LOOKS like loose hair is actually quite firm to the touch, it has a more mature "inner dready area" but the thing as a whole is starting to get more uniform and dread like. IM SO HAPPY. even though i look like a giant fuzzball i dont really give a shit, even though im in college at a redneck school i still dont give a shit. im proud. i have loose hairs flying all over, sticking strait up, some people may think im dirty but i know something they dont know. I'm on a JOURNEY. thats a hell of a lot more than they're doing. im not dissing regular hair, simply stating that most of my haters are shallow losers. I see no shame in my dreads all coated in fuzz so thick it just looks like a rats nest. shit, thats the fun part of the process. i mean, i feel like its really developed my self confidence. Like i have a little hairy shield on my head. i feel, awesome.

Just moved back to my parents after having to leave my apartment! Although I'm 20 and having to share a room with my 13 year old sister, I am thankful to live somewhere where there's power, hot water, cable, internet, and room to move! All of which I did NOT have at my itty bitty apartment haha however all the stress of the past month and led me to ignore separating my dreads and now the whole left side of my head is one big mass on top with the dreads sticking out of it. My sister and I just spent some time separating them so hopefully over time we can get them back to normal and KEEP it that way

this is a reprint from another site
this was posted by a florida priest who wants to be the 2020 presidential candidate for the republican party.
and this is his plan for our future.
this is not a joke
this is his exact plan as he posted it. he has run for mayor in florida and was defeated now hes set his sights on the 2020 presidency.
The petition statement:
If elected I will work to ban pornography with a 10-year prison term for viewing or participating in pornography as well as oral and anal sex with a 1-5 year prison term for oral sex and a 1-10 year term for anal sex.
If elected I will work to ban the manufacture and sale of contraceptives (birth control) with a prison term of up to 1 year in jail and/or a fine of up to $5000 for violating this ban. None of these laws will be retroactive.
If elected I will support a ban on interracial marriage. While I am not racist I believe that God intends people to marry within their own race. Any and all interracial marriages currently licensed would immediately be annulled. Any children born to said couple would be allowed only to marry with other children of interracial couples.
All races ought to have equal opportunity in employment pay and opportunity. Therefore I believe that Affirmative Action is racist against white people and if elected I will work to see that it is abolished.
I firmly believe that sex should be shared with your spouse and that there ought be be love between the married couple. However man and wife ought to be of the same color as stated above.
If elected I will support the death penalty for murder (including performing an abortion) as well as attempted murder and rape and incest and pedophilia/child molestation and bestiality and necrophilia and cross dressing and treason and spying against the State and espionage and drug dealing and vampirism and adultery and armed robbery.
I am also 100% against homosexuality and I believe homosexuals including lesbians and bisexuals as well as people with fetishes ought to be put in mental hospitals. This must be done NOW before they degenerate society and our children's morals even further. I also believe ANY children in the custody of homosexuals ought to be taken away IMMEDIATELY in order to prevent further emotional and sexual abuse. DO NOT let your children near one of these vile monsters!
I believe in a national dress code. If elected the National Dress Code (NDC) will be as follows:
* All persons must wear clothing from their neck to three inches below their knees when in public or in the presence of children.
* Women MUST wear dresses. Trousers are NOT lady-like and therefore women ought not to wear them.
* Jeans are to be banned.
* Any profanity or sexual references on clothing will be banned.
* Businesses must comply with the NDC. Failure to do so will require business owners to sell their operation to the highest bidder.
* Failure to obey the NDC will be subject to a fine NOT exceeding $10000 and/or up to 30 days imprisonment.
I am completely in favor of banning the flawed and blasphemous theory of evolution from ever again being taught in public schools. It has paved the way for atheism to take root in this country. It has also led to Kinsey's famous sexual "research" that led to the sexual revolution. This in turn has contributed to the moral decay of America. God created man is his own image and we must never ever forsake His word. If we do America will end up like Sodom and Gomorrah.
I support the good moral crusaders in Washington D.C. who are getting tougher on the War on Drugs. I am in favor of the death penalty for drug dealers and for a mandatory 10-year prison sentence for anyone caught with ANY illegal drug including marijuana. This mandatory sentence will be required for any amount of possession no matter how small it may be. This will send a strong decisive message to drug abusers that their use of drugs will not be tolerated by the American public.
I propose prison reform. This will be as follows:
* Prison cells will be made smaller. I would set this to approximately one-half of their average current size.
* Prisoners will be kept in their cells 24/7 (i.e. NEVER leaving their cells during incarceration).
* Prisoners will only be fed bread and butter.
* NO contact with ANY other human being during incarceration.
* NO TV or medical care or entertainment of any sort.
* NO sunlight will penetrate a prison cell.
* Disobedient or rebellious prisoners can be beaten by the guards as punishment.
* ANY inmate that attempts to escape will be executed on sight.
If elected I will work to legalize police entrapment operations so that criminals can be caught by police without fear of a lawsuit as well as to catch potential and aspiring criminals before they actually commit a crime on their own. I also believe police "brutality" is blown out of proportion and that mild violence towards criminals from the police should be accepted.
I believe in Singapore-style anti-terrorist legislation. I propose that anyone suspected of being a terrorist ought to be required if necessary to serve up to 5 years in prison without formal charges being brought forward. This will help stop the wave of terrorism sweeping America today.
I am a firm believer in the Temperance movement. I believe that alcohol and tobacco cause a great deal of problems in our country today. I favor the return of Prohibition as well as a complete ban on tobacco. Alcohol causes strokes and leads to cirrhosis of the liver and dropsy. It is also a leading cause of automobile accidents and suicides. Tobacco causes lung cancer (cigarettes) and throat cancer (chewing tobacco) and is along with alcohol a leading cause of premature death in this nation. Tobacco and alcohol are ruining America and it is up to the government to take the initiative to once and for all take tobacco and alcohol off America's streets and out of our schools and our stores and most importantly out of our culture. In order for these goals to be met we must require all schools and employers to regularly test for tobacco and alcohol as well as other drugs on a regular basis and report to the Federal government their findings. Any and all violators will be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
If elected I will work to support a total ban on tattooing. Tattooing is the desecration of one's own body and is indeed harmful. It often causes infections and can result in severe scarring and is very difficult to remove. Therefore all tattooing ought to be banned as soon as possible.
If elected I will work to implement a Federal Anti-Vice Squad (FAVS) that will enforce all the morality laws enacted once fellow moralists are elected to high positions in government. The FAVS will have full search and seizure powers and will be able to for example demand a spare key from someone to search homes for pornography or tobacco etc. The FAVS will also be responsible for enforcing the NDC with patrolling of streets and informants on the streets of America.
I support Project Echelon wholeheartedly as it has undoubtedly saved the United States from countless terrorist attacks and helps fight the war on drugs. Project Echelon monitors ALL telecommunications data for suspicious activity.
I also support the new Carnivore project underway by the FBI to help catch criminals including but not limited to drug dealers as well as drug users and terrorists and spies and traitors of the United States of America.
I enjoy politics. I hope to win the Republican nomination for President in 2020. I will fight as a moralist. I will try to institute the above goals of mine to restore the traditional Judeo-Christian values that our Puritan forefathers founded the United States upon at Plymouth Rock.
Thank you and Amen.
are you ready to live in the world hes envisioned?
do you think the current republican candidates are much better?

When I'm chill, I do many things. One of them is listening to random songs that I like. Such as this one:
