My protective Style...

Dec 28, 2012

So I have decided to get semi-permanent dreadlocks (only last for about 2 months).
This is what I hope them to come out looking like; I'm undecided on thickness or length so I will show a couple of different styles.

Hair Journey Beginnings...

Okay so I am on a hair journey and my goal is to reach lower back-tailbone length in four years!!!
Is is impossible? 
(this is not me)

However it is a struggle for me because I am of Afro-American descent.
After graduating out of high school my hair broke off real bad , all over due to lack of maintenance and perms/relaxers. So I had to cut off most of my hair (about 5-6 inches). I have had my hair in protective styles ever since and its been a good six months!!  But I have gained tremendous hair growth ever since protecting my hair and taking the right supplements as well as having an okay diet.
Now that's part over...

What have I been taking for my rapid hair growth??? 
Biotin is known for its role in the health and beauty of Hair, Skin and Nails. It promotes healthy hair growth and protects against dryness. It also increases the elasticity of the hair's cortex, thus preventing breakage. Recommend GNC brand!!!

However, starting late January early February I will be adding a new supplement with this or maybe just switching to a new supplement. Why??? Well pure biotin is not enough for the complete equation in hair growth- you also need a supplement called MSM which lengthens your hair and speed up the growing long hair part...together you will be able to achieve my ideal length in 4yrs or less. So since I don't want to take two pills everyday I might switch to a supplement containing both.

ATTENTION, these supplements speed up your own natural hair cycle! So don't expect your results to be exactly the same as someone else. But it should be expected to have mid-back to hip length hair in 4yrs, if taken care of properly!!!

PS :  Also, I have been using natural products that consist of oils and creme's- mainly organic hair products!!!

Dog Days….As told by Sincerely Fay (repost)

I have known for a long time that, I was meant to be great I mean HELLLLOOO. Besides that point, I currently broke up with a best-friend (boohoo) and that made me realize how different people become as we get older. I remember the days I would go grab a blanket, a book, and a flashlight (sometimes) and go sit in/under a tree and read until I forget what I was supposed to be doing and where on the planet was I at. I remember me and my ex-best friend climbing up an old wooden ladder to get on the roof just to look at the stars at night and pretend we were superheroes and that was our secret lair. Yes, my best friend is a guy and we were an awesome team. But sadly childhood memories are the only thing I have left. It’s okay though, because losing people and gaining people is apart of life. We just have to except it….

The new year is almost upon us and yet there is so much to do,
 literally there is just too much to do.
So with me being me and all...
I got an new journal; its a beautiful hardcover-
*sighs wanted moleskin* and a quill set with a feather pen.
Now the true writer in me can come out.
I have already began to fill its pages with trapped thoughts and plans.
Poems are coming at a more steady pace.
Anyways, I have decided to switch my major from anthropology to English literature.
I have decided that's where I will be most happiest, who knows mabye my major will change again.
I know I want to go abroad, that's been a long awaited desire since middle school.
And yet its been 7 years later and I'm still dreaming hard for that one!
I am on this natural hair journey to grow out my hair, so I will be posting updates of
everything I come across soon- for others who are interested.
Also pictures will be available of my own struggle, but bear with me!
Also I will start mentioning; music artists, fashion, and other stuff that interests me.
A major goal of mine is to stay committed to my two blogs...
That is all!!!
Happy New Years everyone!!!

Children Hood

Dec 17, 2012

Its funny how this is supposed to be the happiest time of the year,
But yet,
So many terrible things are happening.
How do you explain that to three year old children.
How do explain to them that this year maybe Santa won't be making a stop at their home.
Or that maybe the house they came to know so well is in jeopardy of being took from them.
Or that their parents are struggling so bad that every pay check is spent on a ever rising bill/rent.
How do you tell them that many children just like them have lost their life in school, when they are to attend in a year or two.
How do you tell them that is one of many bad parts of life and that it always get better.
You got to grow up and experience the hardships to realize where you got to go in life.
But I will strive  to make this the best Christmas they have, to lighten the load.
The world shouldn't have to be a scary place for them, they don't need to know the horrors of it, not yet.
Childhoods are precious, they give us light in the darkest of times.
Lets not tarnish these memories...

Rant of this week...

Dec 6, 2012

I have been feeling very nostalgic lately. I am due for some much needed time to unwind and collect myself. I have to start making time for other things so I won't be cooped up in my apartment all day. I need to handle my business and get stuff done without procrastinating. Well enough about me for now.

Why is it that some people undermine the seriousness of higher education? I mean I know college isn't for everybody, but I wish people who have the money to attend -wouldn't waste it.

 Do these particular group of people know how hard it is to get an higher education (obviously not)! I mean its a struggle, its really almost like a miniature fight is going on.

Coming from society's classification of poor class/working class, many people, like me, have struggled to get me where I am today. I mean these people have to constantly worry about financial issues, worry about keeping their grades up, all while trying to keep a crappy job- just so they can attain a diploma to help lift them from their situation.

That plus their own family issue drives them to get an higher education. Just so some people who can afford it, talk about how they party every day and buy expensive stuff that's about the same amount as tuition.

Then this particular group look down on others who attend community college or no college and then get bad grades and be like "oh well I can take this class another semester-it doesn't matter since I (in other words their parents) can afford it."

WTF!!! But you know what, I try to remember that everybody got their own purpose for attending college. For some it may lay with partying and others with self-achievement.

 But I want to make clear that many of those people who attend community college are just as bright as those who attend universities. If money wasn't an issue, I'm sure many would be sitting right in the same class.

That is all....
