Bam! One Year-ish!

I've never made a full-on photo post before! I'm "the one with the camera" so I never really get photos taken of me...so most of these photos are awkward self-portraits.
I did a really shitty job backcombing (I live in the Midwest, man! I couldn't find anyone to help) so for the longest time I just had messy hair. Hmm. I don't have any recent paintings to post, but I might post them sometime? Who knows with me? I'm so lame.
M'kay, what's happened in the year I've had my dreads? I tacked on another year with my girl, adding up to two (for whom I most definetly did NOT do graffiti for our anniversary). I saved my first puppy, layed around more than I'd like because I absorb habits of those I'm around, got out of my dry spell with my art, started a small condom revolution at my school, a small free art revolution in my town, and...? I don't know. I'm hoping that I'll have more to post at my two-year mark. Oh, I've been vegan for three years! I just felt like adding that. It seems special because it's tough in Small Town, U.S.A.

This is about how long my hair was/ my hair type before it locked up.

I was an abused kitty that year! This is sort of an apology because I didn't dress up this year since I just ran around making everyone look like zombies.

Maybe winter '06 or something?

Not a good view of my hair, but I don't have a lot of photos from around the spring.

This is probably around the spring, but it could be earlier because the back of my head has seemed locked since day one.

That front dread has always been the one ahead of the others! ^_^

They really started locking up after I bleached/dyed them, which was why I dyed them in the first place...

Today! Since my dreads aren't long enough to do fun headwrap stuff, I put them up in a clippy thing. Sigh.

Closeup! Alright!

As you can see, I have loads of stray hairs that I haven't taken care of since I kindasortamaybe can't quite figure out the crochet hook. Sorry it was a bit of a boring post; I'll take more interesting photos of mahself if I ever learn how to manage my goddamn time.
