I went with my mom to the supermarket yesterday and my dreads were very messy which is very normal, they're in that stage when they have a lot of loops and loose hairs but I don't want to maintain them right now because they're still young, I'm just letting them be, anyway, I was dressed like I always do or well, most of the time; a black t-shirt that had an equation about the creation or something haha it's funny, my old jeans and sandals and I was pulling the kart, walking beside my mom and one of the security guards gave me an awful look but I tried to ignore that because I daily receive weird glances so it's nothing new for me but then I noticed that one of the guards were following us, my mom didn't notice and I didn't say anything because I thought I was being paranoid or something so, again, I tried to ignore that. We went to get some milk and yogurt and I saw one of the guards again. We passed right in front of him and I heard he said on those radios they use "She bought..." and he mentioned everything we had in our kart! HAHA, I just laughed. I don't know what they were thinking, maybe that I was a drug dealer? but that never happened to me before, I'm used to receive glances everywhere, even before I had my dreads and I don't know why but wow, that was something very, very new to me.
On Tuesday at Music School, one of the secretaries told me I shouldn't pull such a messy hairstyle and she tried to say to me I shouldn't wear dreads anymore but I believe she thinks I dread my hair daily and that I can easily go back to my old hairstyle, she thinks it's as easy as straighten your hair or make it curly, so I just smile and said anything. I won't get rid of my dreads just because such an intolerant school doesn't approve, I mean, it's a music school! It's filled up with musicians and most of them feel pressed by those rules they have... you can't even wear piercings or dye your hair with an unnatural color, like green... that really sucks, really but I'm glad I won't go back after these summer vacations :D
You can see all the loose hairs hehe but I'll wait a little bit to get rid of them.
Ok, my dreads look very messy there but well, they're turning out good so far, I guess.
