Why I have dreads.
I'm quite happy to say I have dreads. It was a bit difficult coming out of the closet with them because I knew of all the attention I would draw, good and bad. My whole family hates them, my roommates, employers, and professors cringe at them. I thought it would be a bit difficult to pass all these harsh judgments. I have the tendency to take silly things very personally. Well I haven't really ran into anybodies nasty opinions that made me feel discouraged, or alienated. I took it all very lightheartedly. It's just hair. A victimless crime really. The only obstacle I have right now is looking for a full time job. I have been searching all over, and nobody in Michigan hires anymore. Not even an interview. I have been going to school overtime for 2 years straight. I am going to take next semester, and next year off to live in Maui with my sister. So for these next six months I need to work my ass off. Well this was just a bit of a babble really, but if anybody has any pointers on how to deal with negativity positively, and also on my job search please help a sister out! =)
