Natural Hair Rant (again)

  Although I'm not fully natural yet I'm having my doubts. Well I will say set backs. I thought about getting a relaxer sooo bad. But then I had to really stop and think about why I want a relaxers. I guess I'm just use to getting the "creamy crack" that I was just willing to give in. Okay, I have a hard time with my family mainly my sisters and mother when it comes to hair. I believe that is the root of everything. I'm the type of person that wants to make everyone happy but then I will be the one that ends up sad because of I wanting to please them. But who is going to please me?! My sisters believe I'm going through this phase of "finding myself." I mean what is wrong with that? I'm young and I have my whole life ahead of me; with me finding myself my hair is part of this journey.
   I honestly don't see what is wrong with natural hair. All they keep telling me is that your hair is going to be nappy, you're not going to have any type of curls, and all this crazy stuff. I guess I'm just frustrated with them. I have to come to the point to just tune them out. I have no idea what my curl pattern going to be, but whatever it is I will love it. I've been inspired to keep on going from reading my favorite bloggers, and watching natural hair videos on Youtube, and simple pictures of women/girls with different natural hair textures. During this journey I've learn to love myself from head to toe. I've never felt like myself with my relaxed hair. Does that sound weird? I know that I'm making the right decision for me, no matter what others may think.
   They keep asking when you cut your relaxed ends off what are you going to do? To be honest I really 'don't have no clue but I know I'm going to find ways. That's why there are  Youtube videos and blogs to help me along the way. I believe they're just as curious as much as I am. I'm nervous but excited to welcome my kinks, coils, and curls to my world that God had gave me.

*The more I look at natural hair the more I understand why I chose this journey, is different, beautiful and so versatile. I felt limited when it came to my relaxed hair that's why i've never felt like i could be myself. These women with their natural hair are beautiful in every way. I just want my family to see my kinks, coils, and curls are beautiful, *

Merry Christmas!!

 Today was awesome for me. To start off my day, my parents woke me up around 8 am. I know that is early to open up gifts. Well for me anyway lol. I didn't expect much but I'm grateful for what I did get. My nieces and nephew got the most out of the whole clan which is expected because they are kids. As for me I got a book, a journal, a pajama set(which i am wearing now) lol, and some moccasins. I adore every last one of these gifts i have received. The one thing I hoped for was some snow today but nope lol but nevertheless I I hope everyone has/had an awesome Christmas and received everything that you had on your wishlist and more!

Thoughts, Updates and such

The semester is finally over. Now I can breathe! Do with me felt good (LOL) well I can really breathe with my professors post my final grades. Then I will be happy. Throughout the semester I had a lot of withdrawals, whether I wanted to stay in the major i'm in or whether I want to continue my education after I graduate. For example I still want to get my degree in Medical Assisting and get into acting classes. As you can tell I am a very indecisive person  in general. But I'm young I guess I can do whatever I want. I've realize I can never do one thing, I get bored very easily. But one things for certain I do want to become a Medical assisting and an Actress. First I will have to find a good school to get into for Medical Assisting (which I'm in the process of doing)  and hope I will find a school before I graduate this May. Oh btw I'm graduating with my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education. Which I am soo ecstatic about after 3 years in my community college I finally be graduating. It is truly an accomplishment. After that I will see what happens, I will be praying about it and go from there.

Grab bag!!!

I personally l-o-v-e grab bags. In my last post I stated my family and I do grab bags as a Christmas tradition. Okay before I go anywhere I will explain what a grab bag. It when we write names of whomever is participating in a hat, plastic bag or whatever you can find to shuffle. Then when that's finish one by one blindly pick a name. Oh yeah there are no trades or take backs lol. Now after that it everything depends you and what you think the person will like. My family has a price limit that's like 25 dollars or more. You don't need a price limit if you don't want a price limit. The whole point of the grab is to get what you think the person will like. Now if you don't really know what to get the person you could ask some of your friends what they think person will like just to get an idea of what to get them. At the end the whole experience is fun. Just to see their faces when they open the present(s) you got them. Its priceless! Doing the grab bag is really nice and different. Happy Grab bagging!!!

Well in 3 weeks to be exact but anyway,I LOVEEEEE Christmas. Who doesn't love Christmas. As a matter of fact I just love the month of December. For the fact that its the last month of the year and then its the movies, decorations, snow, snow, snow, oh yeah did I meation snow lol..Also just the spirit of Christmas. For this month of December I will be finishing my fall semester. Finals are kicking my butt! I can't wait to be done with it all! Im in need of a break from school.
Anyway this Christmas my family and I are doing grab bag. We did that last year and it was so much fun. So we decided to make this a tradition. Speaking of tradition every Christmas Eve we make a big dish! We would have a platter with rolled up lunch meat. Meatball with mozzarella in the middle and many many more. After that is finish we will gather and watch massive Christmas movies until its Christmas. I just love spending time with my family. Well as the new year approaches I appreciate what 2012 taught me and offered me. My arms are open to what 2013 has to offer.

8 month post relaxer

I know in my last post I stated I was going to b/c this month but plans had change unfortunately but I'm making the best of it. I've decided to get senegalese twists. I plan on keeping these in for 3 months or more. I love this hair style! It's gives me a break from dealing with my own hair for a few months.Best believe I will big chop before this summer. That's my goal, I can't wait to welcome my natural hair!
