well hello! I just recently discovered this community and it made me rather excited. everyone that has been posting has BEAUTIFUL dreads! My dreadies are about one and bit years old. they are coming along quite nicely i think! I am super excited for when they get amazingly long...ooooooh..i cannot wait! I will post some pics as soon as i get some developed...also as soon as i can figure out how to do it!! sometimes im a little technology impaired!
another silly little dreadlove story...
last night was the welcome home dinner for people who studied abroad last semester. i met two girls who had been in spain, and we really connected. when we were leaving, they said,
"i'm sure i'll see you around campus, i've noticed you before."
"yeah, i have too. actually, your hair always reminds me of spain, because lots of people wore dreadlocks there."
it made me feel warm and fuzzy. i've gotten it before, and i love being "the girl with the hair".
so, a question: for those of you who get that a lot - the "girl/guy with the hair" identity - do you like it, or dislike it? do you like standing out, or does it make you feel like a freak? i'd love to hear some other perspectives!
