|| trying to wind down before bed
Well, I'm finally (and spontaneously) coming out of the cracks of this community and giving you a post to gander at! I'm Liz, from Statesboro, Georgia. 17 years old, a junior in a high school that she hates, etc etc.
I've been a part of this community for about a year and a half, if not more. I've always wanted dreadlocks, even as a kid. This past July, I finally got them! It's amazing, I know. I wish I could have posted sooner, but I've just recently been reacquainted with my baby, which I lost for about seven months, and was recently found in the breast pocket of my brown leather coat. Safe keeping, right? Well, now that I've found him/her (this camera really needs a name. Any ideas? Its a Canon Powershot if that helps at all.), I'll show you pictures (Though there aren't many of progress.)

So, that's that for now! I can't believe that they'll be five months on December 1st. Sometimes I miss being able to play with and brush my hair, but I'm so happy with my locks as they are now. Many people ask me stupid questions, like if they can brush them. Duhhhno. My aunt, who didn't see them until they were about 4 months old kept saying that she couldn't picture me with dreads, just Bob Marley with my face. :/ Oh well. She also said that she met two black guys with dreads through her job, and the three of them had a conversation about white people having dreads. They couldn't believe it when she told them her white niece had them! I thought that was pretty odd, considering that they live in a big city such as D.C. Oh well.
If anything, I'd love to add some of you dreaded-haired folk to my friends list if you're willing. Cheers, and I hope you enjoyed my intro post!
