and thus we begin the terrible twos!

My babies are now 2 years and 2 days old!!!

I'm posting a smallish timeline, since I don't have the patience for a longer one. Here we go!

Before!:

(you can see my first dread- that bead is now an inch from the tip. MIGRATORY BEADS!!!)

Photobucket

Photobucket

my hair was long. and pretty. and really, really long.

first days of January 2006!

the first picture:

They were done by hope_persists, then we broke up the day after. I know a lot of you felt the need to get rid of their dreads if there was significance with someone you broke up with, but I've found that they are very symbolic of how that relationship and others have been inspirational in my personal journeys. 2 years later, I feel so much closer to understanding who I am and I am in a much better place.

the next couple of days!

valentines day! I was sad because my batteries were dead. you know what I mean.

then I wore funny glasses:
Photobucket

and made a shirt:
Photobucket

I decided to be a mouse and had a lot of beads in my hair:
Photobucket

Photobucket

then is was march and I was very pale:

Photobucket

Photobucket

I also still had that first bead in that first dread. it was longer than the rest:

Photobucket

My hair was long:

Photobucket

but the ends were scraggly. I began to cut them.

I made funny faces:

Photobucket

had a cool style:

Photobucket

and then it was june, and I was blonde:

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

they were shorter. much shorter.

so then, it was summer. I was less pale:

Photobucket

Photobucket

and then my roots came in:

Photobucket

Photobucket

In august I ate giant hot dogs:

Photobucket

my beads changed around:

Photobucket

September, more giant hot dogs:

Photobucket

Halloween. not great pic of my dreads, but it was THE BEST COSTUME EVER. I was dead. His shirt said "necrophiliac":

Photobucket

I took a drawing class:

Photobucket

Photobucket

and wore interesting hats:

Photobucket

and the hair continued to shrink:

Photobucket

I had my wisdom teeth out and looked like a chipmunk:

Photobucket

END YEAR ONE

and then I was off to England!:

Photobucket

January:

Photobucket

Photobucket

I wore pigtails:

Photobucket
Photobucket

and made my new icon:

Photobucket

I fell in love with a country and decided I never wanted to leave:

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

briefly dyed my hair:

Photobucket

Photobucket

there were fun street names:

Photobucket

and sometimes looked really pretty:

Photobucket

I had cool hairstyles:

Photobucket

Photobucket

I went to Bath:

Photobucket

and was glamourous:

Photobucket

and hung out with other ex-pats:

Photobucket

and then continued to shrink.

But then I went to amsterdam:

Photobucket

Photobucket

and slept on long train rides:

Photobucket



and then I left england and I was sad:

Photobucket

Photobucket

and then summer happened and I took few pictures:

Photobucket

Photobucket

I was tan:

Photobucket

September came :

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

There were new glasses:

Photobucket


and 50's proms:

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

and my hair grew...a little:

Photobucket

but not all that much:

Photobucket

Photobucket

helped an awesome lady start her dreads:

Photobucket

Photobucket

and still had mine:

Photobucket

And then it was cold, and time for scarves and hats:

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

and then? It was today:

Photobucket

and they were a little bit longer. slow and steady, I suppose.

Photobucket

I guess it's my fault for rounding some tips:

Photobucket

also, I am Frida Kahlo, didn't you know?

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

- someone wanted pictures of dreads for banners and stuff- I think these ones look fun! except for the roots.

and what a way to start the new year- I have a definitely sprained, possibly fractured ankle.

Photobucket

oh well! it is pretty, at least!

so that is my two year update. SO not short like I thought it would be.

by the way, if anyone wants maintenance in new england, PLEASE let me know. I have super reasonable prices and can possibly put you up for a couple of days if you don't mind a little snoring (you'd be on your own futon, by the way). let me know!


It's been an eventful, hard, good, bad, boring, exciting, confusing 2 years. I hope the coming year will be just as exciting!
