I LOVE HER! we skipped school had fun, i ended up living at my friend jims house till after graduation. my parents let me move back home with my dreads even though i had to hear comments everyday. till right before halloween. i told them i was sleeping at a friends but didnt listen to me and said i didnt tell them where i was going. so told me to pack my shit up and get out. so i did. living in my car for like 2 weeks staying at different friends houses, till my friend eric who owns a cafe let me live in a room thats upstairs. with a bathroom but no shower but i would be able to shower at my friend kellys and my boyfriend at the time so it was cool. i had no job from then til the end of january but right before i christmas i was starving for like 3 days or so, and i called my mom crying that i wanted to come home and she said not unless i got rid of the dreads so I CAVED IN AND SAID OK. over 40 hours of combing and they were out, except one i wouldnt let her...so after that week of combing them out since i refused to comb one out i was told to leave again...so a couple more weeks at the gristmill cafe, then i finally talked them into letting me come home so i could get my job back. that lasted till may..the night before my birthday AGAIN. around april i decdided to dread my hair again...more naturally this time cause my hair was damaged and dreaded on its own. every morning i woke up from the day i combed them i missed them so god damn bad and just wanted them back! so i did. and then got kicked out again, i lived in my car for about a month. sometimes staying at my friend erics farm, sometimes in the wendys parking lot, at different friends. then i moved into a house with my exboyfriends exgirlfriend(weird i know) i lived their til end of september then moved back home again, having dreads ... my parents were a little more used to it but still not accepting. i then started to come them out on my own because i got a job at a go go bar as a hula hooper...then realized what a terrible idea it was and stopped combing my hair out right away. and i have been slowly putting my dreads back in since. i love my dreads so much.
theyve been through alot with me. but every morning when i wake up and know that my hair is knotty i know everything is going to be fine. watching my dreads grow and do their thing keeps me so happy.
