An epic update of biblically massive proportions.

I haven't updated in eons, and I apologize for that, gudu.
Things have been going well in my corner of Philly for quite some time. Lots of the same school stuff and working at Bath & Body Works, but I've been doing some fun projects along the way.
After my dreadlings turned a year old I decided that it was time for a change. Almost spontaneous, but I've been thinking about it for a while, and decided I just needed to have short hair again. I told my girlfriend, miss_catalyst that I wanted them cut, and she obliged. That weekend she came up, cut my hair and we celebrated her birthday and valentines day.
Now on to the pictures! (There are lots.)

my hair from behind. Just a few months over a year old.

Photobucket

Photobucket

The last dread(s). They were two, but merged. They were the first ones I started with, and the last ones in.

After the removal.

I look like a hunter standing next to his 26 point buck. It's my trophy dread. I kept it, and maybe I should make a mantel for it and mount it on my wall.

after having them cut, I had to play with them.
Like, what if I had a beard of dreads?

Photobucket
"This is where they went."

Photobucket
Heeeeyyyy yeah!

Also, we bagged the dread, and Missy has all but the one I kept:

Please mind the fogginess. They have to keep the room so humid for it to be habitable for the butterflies. So the camera lens was constantly fogging up on us.

I'll still be lurking about. And if you're ever in Philly and see me walking around, stop me and say hey. Missy and I need friends up here and we're always looking for stuff to do and people to hang out with!

Stay awesome, Gudu.
