Just little ol' me

new new hair..

So Sunday my first two dreadies were started. As of now I call myself (officially, finally!!) a dreadlette. Most of my hair is worked up, but there is still a bit in the back, under it all, that is still straight (but give me a week or two and that will be gone). I am doing this naturally, no wax or oil or what have you. I have been putting the locks in place and then I will probably just let them do their thing, except of course for the occasional palm rolling and random people wanting to play.

I wish I had a digi or a web cam still so I could show all of you wonderful people, but you will just have to take my word for it.

So a philosophy prof here at my University has thick dreadies that are probably years and years old. He isn't one of my profs, but he has given the last two lectures in my Phil 103 class. One week I had straight hair, the next dreadies, both times I sat right up front. I see this guy all the time on campus, but he has never once looked up at me. Yesterday as I was walking around I saw him and as he walked past he looked up, smiled at me, asked how I was doing as I walked by. All because of the way I do up my hair!? Hehe, I don't mind the extra attention that dreadlocks give us......although I have gotten some awful looks as well as all the wonderful ones.

Anyhow, just thought I would share. Maybe I will share again sometime soon...
