Hello everyone :)

I took a much, much needed mental health day this morning. I deep-cleaned my hair for the first time, crocheted in a few big chunks of hair, unpicked some stumpy ends, and trimmed my bangs. All that sounds conceited but I believe self esteem has a powerful effect on well-being.

I've acquired a new sense of positivity lately. It's motivating me to get a better job instead of the one I now hate, and I'll be graduating with my BA in october. I've been in school for less than 2 years and my life is headed in a very exciting direction. Oh, and I'm finally making independent decisions for myself ;)

I'm going to spend the rest of the day gardening :D

Hi! I'm Allison. On November 5th my roommate and my boyfriend helped me put dreads in my hair to celebrate our court case being thrown out. Sometimes I hate them and they look like a dumb mess on my head but one day they'll be beautiful and I will love them. I've mostly been letting my head do what it wants to do since the initial backcombing but I kind of wish that I had more hair so I could have more dreads. Hmmmmmm how about pictures!

I haven't posted here in a while. Or in my own lj, hahaha. Anyway I went ahead and bleached/dyed my dreads today.

They're going to be 7 years old in April. And oh man, do they need a clean up.

I can't wait to finally start growing them long. I'm getting tired of trimming them short each year. By now they would be down to my mid back or so.
