It took me a long time to really grasp this quote when I was a teenager and even as an adult. Of course its inevitable that every one wants to be liked or loved once in their life or another. As much as I wanted people to like me, I had to realize that I have to like myself first. Plus there are going to be people who will even hate me for no reason. What I've come to realize with maturity is that no matter what you do or say, I can't afford to live my life based on whether someone does/doesn't like me. There's more to life then just wondering who likes me or not. Like I always say The Lord will send me someone special in due time. But in the mean time I will live my life to the fullest, enjoy my own company, take myself out on a date (yes, myself) just until that special someone comes along.

My TV obsessions, so far

I'm in love with this show! It remind me so much of Baldwin Hills and Harlem Heights. I'm a sucker for drama and a great relationship amongst friends. I love how the stick together through the good and the bad that happens to them. I wish I had a group of friends that them. To be honest when I first watched the show I didn't care for it but the more episodes I watched the more I started loving each individual on the show. I hope when the season ends it get picked up for another season.

O.M.GEEEE I am beyond obsessed with this show! The show is even better because my favorite actress Kerry Washington is the main character of this show. Although I hate the fact that she is having a secret love affair with the President. I guess I can't help but love the fact of the secret love affair because its a secret lol.  I know that sounds weird. But I often wonder when will she stop settling being his mistress knowing the fact that he would never leave his wife. Plus she has another man that wants to be with her. If i was her I would try my best to forget about the president and go with the man that really wants her. Besides that I love Kerry's character Olivia Pope. She knows how to get things done. Even when no one knows what is going on Olivia Pope knows. Even if she doesn't know she will find out. She always get her way. lol. This show literally has me at the edge of my seat. Thursdays are my Scandal days. 

If you guys haven't seen this show before, you should watch it. I highly recommend this show. If you are into Vampires, Love Triangles, Drama, Suspense and more its all in this show. I cant count how many times I cry, yelled at the tv (yes, Literally yell). Just like scandal this show has me at the edge of my seat. You never know what is going to come next. I love every characters, even the evil characters makes me love them, even though I know I should hate them because they are pure EVILLLLL. This show puts me in the mind of Twilight but instead of the love triangle between a werewolf and a vampire but its between two sexy vampires. I know that's even better. I can not get enough of this show. 

There are only 2 episodes but of this show but I am completely hooked. I love how things are going so far. The fashion in this show is very vintage and retro. I love it. I always love the 80's fashion. Anyway, I love all the characters. From Carrie to her friends and the love interest. I can't wait to see more. 

What are your tv obsessions?

Length Check #1

I think my hair is pretty long considering I transitioned for nine months. I have cut more of the relaxed ends after this picture but the length is still the same. I plan on doing length checks every 2 to 4 months. Well that's the plan but we'll see what happens. Til next time

My first twist out/update post Bc, curl pattern, etc

To honest I did not expect for my first twist out to look nice. Being that I did my around 6 am because i couldn't sleep last night. When I took it out I was freakin excited being that it was my first good twist out since my big chop. I had a few people who didn't like my hair, but I'm not going to let their opinions get to me. After my big chop I had to clip a few more relaxed ends, I plan to give my fro a shape.

My twist out
I've never been in love with my hair. I really don't miss my relaxed hair.As far as curl pattern or type, my hair in the front is very wavy, on both side and in the middle of my head I have ringlet type of curls and on different pieces of my are really coily or don't have a curl pattern at all. Regardless of how my hair naturally curls I'm just love it  Yeah I know that it has only been a couple of days. I'm just in the product junkie stage where I was to try everything and see what my hair loves. As of right now I'm in love with twist outs, I believe that's going to be my go-to for a while. Since I cut my hair I've never felt more like my self! I hope that doesn't sound weird lol. Til next time

So I did the Big Chop!!!

OMGEEE!! I am so happy!!! January 14th  marks the date. I took out my Senegalese twist Sunday and I decided to wash it Monday. As I was washing it and detangling my hair, I was just getting sick and tired the two textures. So at first i was hesitant because I was going to let my cousin do it but I didn't want to wait that long. Plus i didn't have any money to pay her to do it. As i was cutting my hair was just fascinated by my hair. I want to do so much to it. I love my hair!! I'm not even going to try to convince my family to like it. All my sisters and mother kept on asking why did I wait or hope that I didn't stunt my growth. As of right now I'm not mad that my sisters and mother don't particularly like my hair but I know they will come around. I know they just felt like I should  have waited a little longer. My brothers pick at me calling me the mother from Good Times lol. I don't regret my decision,I knew that I was ready. I still have a few relaxed ends but that could easily be fixed. My natural hair is very different from my relaxed hair so I'm slowly adjusting to my my natural texture. In the mean time I'm just going to enjoy what God has gave me. In the picture I attempted my first twist out and I kind of like it. Well til next time

Accepting my natural hair texture

When I started this hair journey I've not only learned to love myself more but I've learned to love my natural hair. Although I'm not fully natural, I do see and feel my curl pattern and I'll be honest as I started my hair I was soooo into hair typing. I would look at my hair and play a guessing game of what type my hair is. I've just come to the conclusion that whatever my hair type falls under I will love it no matter what! I've come across MahoganyCurls video of accepting your hair type, and I thought this was perfect for me and for anyone who is transitioning and who is already natural to watch who might have a hard accepting their hair type. Hope it helps you as much as it helped me.

9 month post relaxer

I am so ready to do my b/c. I believe as soon as I take out my Senegalese Twist. I know yall must get tired of me talking about my hair. lol. I'm just really excited. It just sucks I don't have a good camera to record it all. But my iphone will have to do for now. Being that I'm going to do my big chop I'm thinking about starting a youtube. I have a youtube channel but no videos. So I will just put aside my fear of talking to a camera and being viewed by alot of people. I shall see what happens. I'm just really excited about this hair journey, aside getting ridiculed about what i should do or shouldn't do with my hair, and how short my hair will be when I cut off all the relaxed and all that crap. I just believe that everyone is obsessed with long hair and just can't imagine me with short curly hair. Although at the end of the day I'm going to do what I want to do with my hair. I'm realizing I complain alot on here lol...No bueno..I know that can be quite annoying..I guess I'm just frustrated. But from now on I will try my best to not rant so much.  The next time I post something about my hair I will be all Natural!!!

Hello 2013

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! OMGOSHHHH 2013 is finally here. As I enter this year, I look back at 2012 with a smile. Although I didn't accomplish everything I wanted to do that year, I will make up for this year. I really don't have no regrets, just lessons learned. Overall 2012 was a great year. I'm looking forward to what this year has to offer. I'm expecting this year to be filled awesomeness lol. I will be graduating with my associates degree in Early Childhood Education and I will be 22 years old and much more. Who knows I may meet the guy of my dreams, travel the world, meet new people. I just feel that this is going to be THE year for me. I know that sounds really cliche' but i really feel it. This year I will not let fear get in the way of what I want to do in life and career. With that being said I hope everyone has a great, safe and prosperous New Year !
