i had to write an essay for my english class about something that i'm very literate in, and how i use it to communicate. or something. the assignment was a bit fishy, but my teacher told me i could write about dreads (it was either that or music, and this is too much of a breeze-through course to take the easy way out). i was really nervous to have people read it and peer edit it at first because i've never given away this much information about my dreads at once. i mean, i tell people bits and pieces all the time, but never everything in one blow. i also included stereotypes that i have, and i didn't know how people would react to them...i'm getting more comfortable with it, though.
anyways, i turned it in as a "final-for-now," but my teacher is going to give them back so we can rewrite them and turn them in with our portfolio at the end of the semester. if you want to read it, that'd be really cool. i love constructive criticism--in fact, it would be awesome if you ripped this paper apart. but, that is more than most people are willing to do, more than i'd be willing to do, and more than i should ask of you. you don't even have to read it, truly. it's hella long anyways.
p.s. i had to include a lot of basic info on dreads that you guys already know because this community is awesome. if you don't agree with it, fine. if it's wrong, tell me.
