today i kinda snapped, i really do not know what made me, or why it just felt like one of the manyimpulsesi oftensuppress. I did not snap at a coworker, friend, or any animate object..i snapped my cigarette, then keptsayinim done im done, gave my almost full pack away and left!!!! that happened about four and a half hours ago!
I'mgoing to try these homeopathic chew pill things that SE recommended worked for him real wells, and i have tried them, they kill the craving.
Lets start by saying that for the last, maybe 5 months my dreads have not changed, so they have just been growing length at the roots mainly.
i feel like if idon'tfix the issue of smoking cigs and quit for good, my dreads cant and will not progress any further.i'msure they would. but honestly,i'vebeen wanting to quit for 7 years, of 14 year smoking. thats too long.
...this all is happening at a stage when my dreads are really defining themselves, becoming locked upknotsof love. when i think about it, i think that smoking the cigs is not only good for my own heath or those around me, i think about the image that the word sees. another smoking locked up hippy, bum, or whatever. dreads i believe do not want to beassociatedwith that at all!
so...from this day forth i hope to really quite smoking cigarettes, while keeping a deaded quitting smoking timeline

Hey yall im back. Iv been reading up on separating locks and have been doing so. I know my locks are still really young at only three months but should I do it anyways??? I have hairs at the shaft of the lock that come apart after I pull the two dreads apart but the loose hair crossing at the roots is another thing. Should this be an issue or should I just let it be? Like I said my locks are still very young so I just dont know when I should really start working on this..

since that this is really the only blog that i have..ever kept. why not.. .blog. man this last year...has been interesting looking back, you know how in the moment its boring as..you know its awesome to think that this last year dreading, my dreads have been veryimmature! ive read that dreadding naturally it is always forward progress. i think this to be true in more ways than just intended. i myself have been very immature. in more ways than i can care to count...sin sity...baby. what is it when you look at things coming your way as a test? do you give in or no to temptation? hmm if your one to learn from experience and lessons learned, not mistakes, then you understand.
ONE of the reasons i wanted to take the time today and write this blog is because of ideas and considerations i been kicking around the ol noggin for weeks now. i want to move, get out, get away, leave, start over, sever all ties...though that may never happen its still something ive been dreaming about for soooooo long now................before i dig deeper into that lets recap some of this last year.
last spring early summer i got to go do some real hiking and exploring, for about a month (i wish i had six to do the whole thing) i hiked a portion of theAppalachianTrail, or the AT. This experience opened my eyes further than ever befor, taught me a lot, and made me yearn to do MORE things for myself...not just for myself, but to listen to what my hearts telling me. (i want to say that thinking with ones heart is not the same as in the head)........for years "need to get out of here." has frequented my processes..i think its similar to people who move to a new city often, like you just have this itch in your bones telling you to MOVE. anyway..ive traveled everywhere in the lower 48s, everywhere, my favorite parts are the north west, washington and oregon or maybe even norcal, and the rockies. anywhere from montana (or north if i had passport) to northern new mexico its all amazing(even passt that..). driving cross country for a couple years thinking about this "move" ive narrowed it down to these general areas.
this idea..has resurfaced every day these last few wweeks because all i see in my future is a lot of the saaaaame..im just ready to move one and progress, just like my dreads are showing me they are. im assuming my mind will remain to be boggled by this mystery of ironic timing..theres more to say..but i can just hit the add post button once more
take care and love to all!

People notice my hair now lol. I must admit, I really don't like answering questions/explainingstuff. Buuut, I think now I have to.
Like... yesterday a girl asked me:
Do youbrushyour hair.
Have you ever brushed your hair?
Do you wash your hair?
Why don't you brush your hair?
And that's mostly how all theconversationshave gone.
But today someone asked me:
Do you want dreads?
I was surprised. The whole class stopped. "How do you get dreads?", one girl called out. "They don't do anything to their hair", another girl answered. "So that's why you don't brush your hair?", the girl next to me asked. Everybody was asking some sort of question. The teacher made them shut up lol.
I REALLY don't like trying to explain this to people who have zero background knowledge. It's exhausting. Would it be rude to type something up explaining dreads and just let people read it when they ask me questions? Like... a pamphlet?
I really think it'snecessaryto explain this to people though. People need their questions answered!
At the end of class the girl next to me said "what a creative way to get dreads." Haha, I don't know about that :p
