Why I have dreads.

I know I haven't posted anything in about forever, but I'm up a little late and out of things to do, so I've been sewing in some loose hairs here and there and thinking about my hair quite a bit, as a result.

Sometimes I'll admit it's been rough and I've wanted to rip the damn things out of my head for a second. It's so hard to find a respectable job with my hair and piercing, the gas station clerk told me I look "rough" and my father insists on telling me that his hair looks prettier than mine does now. 

So why the hell do I bother?

It's because no one else gets a connection with their hair like this; getting to watch it grow and go through its rebellious stages and look stunning, in turn. 

It's because I don't spend an hour on my hair every morning. I don't have to shampoo it every night to keep it from getting greasy. I can drive with the windows down without my hair looking horrible after and mostly because I really, really like the way that I look with dreads =). I guess it's all about feeling good in your own skin ((or hair)).

Now I just have to remember that next time my dad calls me "Side Show Bob" or my mom subtly asks if it's possible to get "those things" out.

But anyway, after 5 years of wanting them, december 2006 I decided to finally get my dreadlocks and here's my timeline
