i was at the grocery store with my friends tonight, and i walked past a girl with dreads. i saw her kind of pause and look at me, but i was talking to my friend so i just kept going. well, then we stopped in the produce and she came up to me and was like, "hey, are you trying to do dreads?" i said yeah, i've just been doing them for a week ago. so she gave me some tips, and said, "here, let me touch your head for good luck. that's what rastas do." it was so cool... it was the first time anyone's come up to me because of my dreads - granted, it's only been a week or so, but still. it was cool.
and ever since i came back to school and went to a party last night, everyone keeps complimenting me on my hair. it makes me feel like i made the right decision to dread up ;)
