So on sunday I meet this amazing girl at a giant public pillow fight and like... right now it's a HUGE clash of happiness and optimism, and feeling hurt and pessimistic. basically I kept chasing her throughout the crowd that night, well not literally CHASING her, but scoping her out.. not like a creep! just I reallyyyy wanted to meet her. she was like reallyyyy hippiesh like hugging hella people and being friendly to everyone who said hi to her, and all that. So I finally manage to go up and talk to her, she says hi and seems friendly and hippie dances her way off. damn. then later I go up to her again, we talk for maybe 12 seconds, then she hippie dances her way off. fuckk is she one of those types that you just can't hold on to?? so i see her chatting with some other guys, and more guys and yadiyada, i mean she's dancing all over the place so naturally hella guys go up to her, but no guys seem to be able to hold her talking for more than a minute or two at the most. so finally i just sit there and almost give up. then she walks by me, and is like hey! so i'm like fuckk this is my LAST CHANCE!!! so I get her to talk to me for like 40 minutes and get her to sit down with me, and things go pretty well. so she seems really intersted in me, hugs me, leans near me, and when her friend comes to tell her that shes leaving, she just kinda politely shoos her off, which was amazing, cuz i thought she would have used that as her excuse to ditch me.. so then she hears music playing somewhere and drags me with her, and i ask for her email, and she gives it to me, and give me her number to, voluntarily. turns out that this was the SAME girl i saw at the bluegrass festival and lovefest back in october! (but was too shy to talk to) so i say how crazy that is, and she smiles and says that it was meant to be. sounds like a good deal doesn't it? well there are some MAJOR things that are troubling me. First off... she's 22!!!! and I'm 17!!! I swear she looked like 18!!! I was NOT expecting her to say 22! it troubled me so much that I just didn't want to believe it. I told her I was a senior in highschool, and she still seemed interested in me. another thing that really bothers me, is that she seemed REALLLYY blazed. like she was smoking a joint, and just was spacey as heck. its not weed i have a problem with, it's just the idea that she might have only talked to me cause she was high... and didn't actually realize what she was doing.. or maybe shes just one of those really free love hippie types who will just "love" anyone... look I think thats great and have nothing against that at all, but i mean.. I really did think I was special... bottomo line... Is it weird that I want to be friends with this 22 year old??? I can't help but think that it's just really... just seems wrong.. even though i really want to be her friend..

So I am now graduated with my associates in the arts of criminal justice (go me!) I cant even express how great it feels to have accomplished this, all the hard work is paying off. It has been difficult between work, my 9 month old son and school but It is getting easier as time goes on. I am so excited to have found this site though, I really do have to thank my friend Lesa (Dreadloc Dreadsta) for introducing me. On the note of family, my son is growing so fast it is crazy to see it day from day, OH hes getting teeth, wow that is a hard stage! My husband and I are just trying to make it as easy as we can for him, while still trying to have some room for "us". Well thank you all for your hospitality, I cant wait to get to know you all !

I'm just starting my dreads for the first time and I'm about 3 weeks in the natural process and I was just curious if there was anything special you do after your dreads get wet? should i do anything different since i'm just starting mine?

On January 26,2010, join citizens from across Wisconsin at the State Capitol to tell legislators that you expect them to vote well on natural resource issues.Since the first Lobby Days in 2005, it's grown from 100 citizens to more than 500!Each year, representatives from nearly 100 conservation groups from across Wisconsin descend on the Capitol to share their conservation values with their legislators. When hundreds of citizens speak with a unified voice, legislators simply cannot ignore the tremendous support that exists for conservation.On Conservation Lobby Day, you will speak to both your state Representative and state Senator about key conservation issues. In addition, you will receive skill and issue trainings that you can apply when advocating at home. You will also have the opportunity to meet and network with others who share your conservation values.This year, the conservation community will be fighting to make sure:1.Wisconsin adopts a statewide plan to tackle global warming.2.Wisconsin returns to an Independent DNR Secretary and has timely votes on Natural Resource Board Appointments.3.Wisconsin has clean, abundant drinking water and a statewide conservation plan.4.Wisconsin protects drinking water supplies by making sure we safely spread agricultural, municipal, and industrial waste.Legislators need to continue to hear from you!Keep the conservation momentum going!JOIN US FOR CONSERVATION LOBBY DAY 2010JANUARY 26th @ THEWISCONSIN STATE CAPITOLHope to see all my fellow Wisconsinites there!AmberDawn

I'm going to miss 2009 when the new year starts. So many great things happened in my life this year. I'll just start from the first events of the year...Ron Bronson, a short lived band I did vocals in, ended around the end of the school year. Not much to say about it since we didn't do much as a band. Hmm.. yeah LOLOk, now for the real blog post. In July, I left the United States for the first time. I went to Cancun, Mexico to attend my uncle's wedding. I'm not Mexican BTW. Just saying since I know someone will ask. It was really cool to be there. Me, my family, and a lot of relatives stayed at the Dreams Hotel for a week. It was a really chill environment. There's free room service, 2 pools, a beach. This vacation is also where I decided that I will most definitely get dreads. I saw some 10 - 12 year old blonde kid with dreads swimming in the pool. That just confirmed to me that you actually can get dreads wet. So, that made it seem less restrictive to me. I also rode a Four Wheeler ATV and almost flipped over, XD. That vacation made my summer.Hmm, what else. Oh no, Billy Mays and Michael Jackson
...and like 40 other famous people.I have to say, dreads changed my life. It taught me patience, individuality, and that people should judge only character. Now, I feel more like "myself" than ever. I feel like i finally found an identity.For the past few years, two of my old "friends" noticed that I started to become an individual. So, they thought it was wrong for me to do that. They decided to hack into my locker and put up posters in there, accused me of Satanism and witchcraft, and spread rumors and propaganda about me in school and via internet. It eventually led to my old main group of friends kicking me out because those 2 guys told them I was "mentally unstable" probably just because they think Dreads = crazy person and an outsider. Ironically, this is one of the best things to happen to me this year. A bunch of guys who discriminate individuals, stay away from me. And, now I spend more time with my real friends who know me for what kind of person I am, not how different I am compared to them.I can't wait for 2010. Happy New Year everybody
