today at work, i had a meeting with a "team leader" (person above me) and they said, so cleverly indirectly, that the dress code has been "slipping". i already cant wear my nosering, and now htey are saying that we have to present ourselves as tho "our hair has been washed and combed everyday".
i looked directly at her and with the deepest sarcasm said
"yeh, that'll definitly happen"

the worst that can happen is they'll fire me

screw it, never liked that job anyway.

Hey everyone, just thought i'd post a new picture i took just a couple of minutes ago. This is the result of the dye job that i did today, i'm actually quite surprised cause my dreads where black and that is the colour i got them after only two applications of bleach with 40 volume developer.

    Audioslave - Show Me How To Live

& so the music was like a diary of what was going on

we're autumn like jazz
wailin' sweet thunderstorm
towards lunar dismay

lets conduct a symphony
as the wind, blowing the
slightest notion of

waking to sundried leaves shuffled
back to the regressive tides of winter

time's sinking in, hair thickening as it
breezes & i am barely holding my disposition

i am merely holding my breath

i need help. i need a new job where i can have my dreadies and hopefully wear my nosering as well, because ive been wanting to pierce my lip, but i cant do it cuz of my job.. i can take my nosering out for eight hours a day because ive had it pierced for a few years... but! cant do that with a brand new piercing. sigh.. i dont know how long you have to wait before you can switch and wear a retainer thing.. dont have any experience with those...

but where do you guys work?

i cant believe i actually did it, but i applied at a new Hot Topic in the area, even tho i really dont care much for the store itself, but the "dresscode" is quite enticing... trying to get a job at maybe a record store of some sort... thatd be cool.

well, just curious where you guys found employment....

loose ends

so, i've been having trouble with the bottoms of my dreads undoing themselves and while playing with them in class, i started tying them in knots at the bottom, and i think it's working but i haven't tried washing them with the knots yet, have any of you done this before and has it worked?

I have dreadlocks. Right about noooow.
We worked on them on and off (but mostly on) since about 3 pm. We just finished about an hour ago. And they really don't look much like dreadlocks, but they've got a long road ahead of maturing. All natural, not using any wax (though I may break down and use it for the first month or so). Anyway...
