So, we have an ant infestation in our house. My mother likes to leave the doors open in place of air conditioning, and sometimes it backfires.

So, my question is, how do I keep them out of my hair? They get EVERYWHERE.

I suppose this extends to most bugs and critters. And once they are in, how does one get them out?

How to keep long dreads off of the sand.

This past weekend, my g/f and I went to the beach.

I didn't want to drag my hair in the sand as I walked around, so I tied it around itself in a big-ass knot. This kept my hair up on my shoulder rather than allowing it to get whacked by the waves down near my knees. I think my hair is about five feet long now... give or take.

Anyway, this is what it looks like in a knot.

In other news, I'm still fat.

I havn't posted to LJ in a very long time.
In fact, I only use it anymore to watch this community.

I was waiting for a big "come back"
but I just had to say:


Stop asking, and just do it.
You know you just want to post pictures of yourself,
you know we're going to support you in knotting your hair,
so JUST DO IT!!!!
Don't care what your hair looks like now,
but will care about what it looks like when you're done.
Don't care how pretty you are or whatever -
only care about your dreads.
That's why I'm here

Thank you
I had to get that out.

I'm not posting pictures though -
I'm at work and just don't feel like it.

Okay so what this post was actually about though is that I am thinking of cutting my dreads. I really wanted to keep them longer but the pro list right now is longer and full of more important things than the con list, unfortunately. I absolutely love my dreads, but they are really heavy, very hot and hard to manage sometimes. You say, yes well that's what comes with having dreads. Correct, but right now i don't want to worry about what day i can wash my hair so that it can have all day to dry and i won't look like a fuzz-ball at my work or how i should put it up so that it is cool but does not hurt my neck by the end of the day. Now you are thinking, well just cut them shorter thus you still have dreads but they are't heavy or as hot. Yes, well that is true...BUT i never wanted short dreads, i always wanted long ones so that i could do stuff with them. All in all i don't want dreads enough to cut them and have short little dreads. I would rather not have dreads or have nice, long ones. I know i will miss them when they are gone but i guess it's always possible to do them again if i really miss them that much. Also, it seems a shame to cut them now when they are just getting good. I mean 2 years in dread-lives are nothing. I would've really liked to have them a lot longer. Unfortunately i have a lot of hair, that is thick and heavy even when it's not dreaded...

I am torn because i love most things about them but a few crucial factors (weight, heat, etc)have overridden all the good factors (loving the way they look, and seeing them mature, etc). If any of you have any insight into this please do tell. I would love to hear what people who have cut their dreads think about this.
