Damian Marley Dreads
Well today I learned something new :] I did not know of Jah Levi. I'll have to check out his music.Thanks SE for sharing, I wonder how many years he's been growing them for?
I work from home also, just helpdesk support for an ISP, but these kinds of gigs are temporary and don't usually come with benefits. My contract for this job is up in December, I don't know if they'll contract it out again. I am also a college student so if I can't get another telecommute position I am going to see if there are any work study that I can get where my locks wont matter, in college settings they are less discriminatory about the hairstyle.
I see you live in Texas, I know there are a lot of call center jobs (usually customer or technical support) in Texas and they don't *normally* discriminate against dreadlocks (you aren't customer facing so they aren't as worried about it). I have a friend who is an IT manager for Research in Motion and is a big fan of locks (though she doesn't have any herself) but that's in Irving Tx which is closer to Dallas and probably way to far for you.
mine started at the same length but started naturally so whole diferent story
all i can say is who cares what it does or how it looks? u can go out without a hatt cause u shopuldnt care that its not perfect
sea salt every day is overkill emphasis on kill u wanna do it once a week about a couple hoirs b4 u wash
curling ups a good thing but
backcombing will most likely fall out completely ..so if it does..let it it will still dread up fine when its ready to dread
weating a tams good but not all the time wear it only bout 1/2 the time cause they need time to move freely too
That's a good point.
Lexi, don't you ever watch some tv, movies, listen music or buy a mp3 player? Do you really think all this stuff is bad?
Oh that sounds so bad about the genetically modified food. But it's so tasty...
What kinds of diseases the modified corn can lead?
What type of food do you customly eat since you're knowing that?
Well, there are documents stating that during the attacks on 9/11 the bush family was having a friendly meeting with the wealthy bin laden family
I don't believe in all u.s. conspiracy theories, no
but I do believe in the legitimate resources that I use and the uncovering of previous classified documents
It's understandable that you find it hard to believe that America is so bad
but an example of how bad it is, is that the united states gave funding to hitler and saddam hussein
we suffer from what is known as a military industrial complex, our country is surviving only on the sale of weapons to other nations, who in turn brutalize their citizens. The only reason that our country is so pivotal in the world economy is because we have effectively globalized, or "westernized" half the globe, we have struck fear into the hearts of those who want an alternative way of life, we are a dominant military power that is the only reason. because we have big huge weapons.
remember what happened to japan?
to brandon: you're probably wrong, the only freedom you have is between pepsi and coke and what color shirt you're going to buy. what you don't have control over is that the shirt you buy is made by a poor girl in a sweatshop who gets paid 15 cents a day. the media makes things seem different than they are.
For instance, did you read the headline yesterday that documents were uncovered proving that the United States infected up to 100 individuals in Guatemala with Syphilis? What do you say about that? We live in a country willing to purposefully infect other people with sexually transmitted diseases.
America is a great country, despite all the hate we get from our own citizens and from other countries. Some people are awesome, some are not. If you have job experience with being a journalist, I'm sure it'll be much simpler to find a position somewhere. Maybe you could set up an internship in the US through your current University? You'd have to move wherever you find one, but that's part of the experience!
I would LOVE to visit the Grand Canyon and the west coast some day, hopefully this summer. It's hard to get around the entire country without a lot of public transportation like some European countries.
Good luck with your search though. I met a german waitress once who was DYING to get to the US to visit New York. I think a lot of us U.S. citizens don't appreciate how great we actually have it here, which is why our country is falling apart!!
oh and Australia is incredible too. One of my favorite countries <3
