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

It's been quite awhile since I've been around because I'm a bum like that :-pBefore I get directly into the dreading part, I gotta mention that I found myself a Very Nice Boy. He doesn't mind my dreading process. He doesn't have dreads himself but that's ok.Now onto the meat n taters part:Almost a full year without combing my hair and you just -can't- tell. Friends have put some dreads in and they may stick around for a little while, but they fall out pretty easy. When -I- put a dread in, it falls out within a few days or less.When the dreads stick around longer than a few days, they're nice and tight but seem to start thinning out over time. I'm careful when washing with them. What am I missing here? Am I not careful enough? not washing often enough?I'm so very tempted to post to Craig's List for some help, to try to get someone to do my whole head all at once so I can try from there. I'd have to bribe them with food and art but I wonder if anybody would go for that...Still... I will not give in to the commercial route. No products for my hair.

lately i been realizing that john and i are doing really good on hardly arguing at all. we been laughing together more then lately and hes been way less stressed out. im just so happy that i got to marry a man who meshes so well with me and im realizing how lucky i am. i know alot of people out there have problems finding the right man and i just hope one day they can find a match to them as good of a match as i found for me. i think our secret is that we are such wierdos.. i honestly dont beleive anyone else would know how to deal with us and this is a reason we are soulmates. ive also been seeing that since johns been home more bcuz of the break between semesters that him and gauge have been getting a even stronger bond.you can really see their love for eachother shine. i just hope that it wont be to big of a change when he goes back since he will only be going three days a week next semster. its just so awesome to see the two people you care about most have this great bond and love for one another. i mean u hear these horror stories of dads not wanting to be around their children or running away from the responsibility and im just so thankful that my husband is a real man who will do anything and everything for his son. i know that even if soemthing happened between him and i (im confident that it wont) that he would still be the biggest male figure in gauges life. anyone can be a biological father but it takes a very special man to be a daddy. i just been taking a step back and realizing how happy and thankful for my immediate family lately i mean they arent just my husband and son they are the main two ppl in my life they are my two best friends and i know that we all would do anything for eachother and that no matter what nothing can come between our love for one another. i know if someone would try to hurt either of them i would just lose it. they are my everything and ive never seen such a loving dad or such a beautiful smart happy loving little boy in my life. they truly are my entire world. I LOVE THEM MORE THAN LIFE!

today me and my dreads had a nasty encounter with velcro. it seemed pretty blogworthy to me haha.in gym class we were playing elimination and mats were set up around the gym like walls to hide behind. mats with velcro on the edges. im just minding my own business next to one of these mats when a guy comes to whip a ball at me. naturally i ducked in close to the stupid mat to avoid getting killed. of course half of my dreads get stuck to the velcro and i get pelted with the ball, tipping the mat over as it took my dreads with it. It hurt soooo bad this huge heavy thing pulling down on my hair! and it probably pulled out a hundred loose hairs :/ of course on the way down i yelled veeelllcrooo!! i have no idea why, but at least that made it a lot funnier haha.so long story short...tomorrow im wearin a tam! :P

My dread's 4 month birthday will be on December 7th, but I'm just too excited not to post pictures now. There may be a few coming later as well. As you may note from the pictures, they are all developing nicely, and for those that were just a little too awkward and slow, I bound a few together (strategically of course!) with some wool thread that I had left over from a previous crochet project. My loops are running rampant and I just love it. Each dread has a life all it's own. Best part is, those dreads in the back of my head that I was so worried about at first are looking so wonderful now! A friend of mine was playing with my dreads and when she found the ones in the back she exclaimed "WOW now these are REAL dreads! This is what I was expecting to see!" xP Anyhow, PICTURE UPDATE!!

I was wondering how having dreadlocks has changed everyone. Personally I think I'm more accepting of other people and their differences since having dreads. Ive learned that what we're supposed to think is "pretty" or "normal" isn't what we should strive for. Our differences and willingness to show them is what truly makes us beautiful. I used to compare myself to other people and feel bad about the way i was, but now i know that being an individual is far more important than following the crowd and conforming to the norm. And I'm sure I'll learn a lot more in my dready years to come How has having dreads changed you??
