Just goes to show how superficial people can be and how focused on appearance they are. The way I see it, naturally (pun intended), one thing that dreadlocks symbolize is no care for what others think. Many claim to not care about what other people think about them, and that includes people who manipulate their locks. But if that were really true, why do people get so obsessive over getting every little hair crocheted back in as soon as one comes undone? They can't really claim "I do it for myself" because they don't see themselves, and they allow that one minor thing to disturb their inner peace. So in actuality, they are doing it so that they can look "better" or more neat to others. Not trying to be judgmental at all because I was in that place, but it definitely takes some looking inward to figure those things out. Instant dreads skip all the dirty looks, judgment and persecution and go right to the "Nice dreads!" stage. So what other purpose would they serve besides the look?

It is sad that people basically expect to have to pay for truth. Just goes to show how seemingly hopeless humanity has become that it's hard to believe there are still good people working toward a good cause without expecting anything in return. You certainly are a rare breed.

I was actually thinking a little while ago about sites like dreadheadhq and how people get sucked into the mindset of needing to use their products/instructions for dreading their hair and always keeping them "perfect" looking. Most people think of Bob Marley when it comes to dreads, and it made me laugh envisioning someone asking how he did his dreads and telling them he used dreadheadhq haha. Really though, I think a lot of people just have a hard time with waiting for their dreads to form, like how I did but then I grew to hate my insta-dreads. There's no fun in that, no experience, no wisdom to be gained. It's boring.

Will do!

It's always nice and refreshing when you're taken care of when it's least expected. The benefit of these situations is learning more patience, prioritizing, and appreciating at least having enough to put food on the table.

So when we woke up this morning we saw that we have pending deposits from Unemployment retroed for the last month. Which is such a blessing because we were getting our internet/cable and phones shut off as well as my car insurance canceled in the next few days. And we weren't sure we'd have the money to pay for our rent next week, either. So this is all working out amazingly so far 👍 I'm excited to see what goes on as far as the EEOC, and we're most definitely going to sue, especially since he admitted to it all being about having dreads and not even having an employee handbook.

Just goes to show how uneducated people really are about it. As a business owner, one should make sure to know the laws and rights of employees to keep from making these mistakes. It's pretty sad actually.

That would be pretty funny but at this point the owner can only blame himself since he chose to stoop that low. The manager just kinda egged it on and supported him in his lies. Pretty pathetic, but hilarious at the same time that they completely screwed themselves lol.

It was with the Department of Labor and Workforce Development. What's really great is that the owner admitted freely that he came in to work and had a problem with her dreads, I guess assuming the claims examiner would side with him because dreads are "dirty" and "unprofessional" (he actually said this on the phone). Trapped himself with all that since it was recorded, and the claims examiner told Tiara that the phone call can be used against him. So essentially, he did the EEOC's job by admitting he discriminated against her. Shows how uneducated people really are about the matter lol.

So she just had her phone interview, actually went better than we anticipated. I'll try to get her to come on here to post the details, but here's what basically happened:

It was a conference call, so the owner was on the call too on speakerphone, but he also had the drama queen office manager in there too, which the examiner questioned. They interviewed the boss first and he pretty much dug himself a hole by saying there was no employee handbook, how her dreads were the only problem he ever had with her, and how he was only demoting her from her sales position back to reception, which entailed a pay cut. He also said how she was only sales one day a week, but it was actually three she did in sales, so her job was primarily in sales. Then said how she was talking about dreading her hair for two weeks and the office manager told her it wasn't a good idea, which never happened cause she decided she wanted to dread two days prior to this all. Tiara didn't even get to tell her side of the story yet before the examiner was tearing in to them about how it's her civil liberty as a human to do what she wants with her hair, and how if he wants to be enforcing things about appearances then there needs to be a handbook. Owner caught himself in a couple of lies too lol. So then he interviewed Tiara, who was calm and honest about it all while the clowns on the other end were chiming in all annoyed, saying how what she was saying didn't happen, how they have everything on camera, etc. The examiner was on her side from like the beginning, and even said he wanted her to know that she can take legal action and have a lawsuit, and she replied how she had contacted the EEOC, then heard the idiots huff and puff over that lol. So, things are looking good in that area, and they had the interview recorded which could be helpful if we end up needing it.

3+ week update

My sections have become a lot more defined and more dreads forming. Been sleeping on my right side the last few nights to keep things balanced. The front is slowly coming along now too.

Haha seriously. Only two weeks but it does feel like at least a month. The big one is almost fully formed, it's shrunk down about halfway and the rest of the length is dreading up nicely. So far it's my dreadliest one lol. Then there's these ones in pic, they're the ones I showed in my one week update. The one middle one is my favorite overall, it makes me think of like seahorse tails tangling together. I have a few in back like that too but I can't quite see them lol.
