today was my first day back to school after a summer that was much too short and we all know how malicious high-school kids can be. i woke up this morning and was completely unsure of how the day would go, so i went for some coffee to keep me in good spirits. i was expecting some rude comments and not too much positive feedback, i knew i would have to keep myself on a positive page, but surprisingly enough my new knots were hardly criticized at all. i heard a few baldies call me a 'tweaker' and a few of those straight hair blondies direct the term 'psycho' in my direction, but i kept my head held high and took in positive praise from the loving hearts around me who are always seeming to support my sometimes non-conventional decisions. someone even came up to me after school on my way out to the car and told me 'i dont normally like dreads, but i think your hair looks very exotic and its very flattering on you.' haha
today is my 12th day(i officially finished on the first after a week and a half of here and there with sore arms) on this journey and i am very pleased with every ounce of positive energy i have been able to embrace, store, and surround myself with. even my stepmom, the neatfreak, and my stepsister, the bored out of her guts i love you to death girl, have been continuously offering to do some matienence on my loose and fuzzy hairs, but i quite enjoy this crazy, fuzz, matted, mess on my head. i think this is the only the prime of my development and i am extremely pleased.
although i don't have a camera or any pictures of my hair at the moment, i'd just like to remind all the new knotty heads like myself to keep that beautifully knotty head up high and remind yourself why you've sailed out of the marina into the big blue sea of open-mindedness, whenever you're unsure of yourself.
