As many of you know, today marks United StatesPresident Barack Obama's100th day in office.
First and foremost, I am proud of President Obama for setting a new standard.
With that being said, we have a long road ahead of us. This is just the first 100 days of four years. It is unrealistic to think eight years of damage can be undone in a little over three months. Don't forget to factor in our latest crisis, the swine flu. What will the next 3.75 years bring?Will we see progression?Will families finally feel like they can breathe financially?Will universal healthcare be established?Will our students be EDUCATED as opposed to being taught how to barely pass competency tests?
So many questions, so little time. So readers, what does President Obama's 100th day mean to you?
This is a long overdue update...and I'll try to make it short (I have the tendency to be wordy, lol).So, I thought my hair growth slowed down quite a bit...um, apparently I was wrong. I had not retwisted my hair in a while so I decided to go ahead and retwist it while I had the time to do so. I must say I was shocked at the growth. *Happy Dance*Here are a few pics...enjoy and feel free to ask any questions you may have regarding my locs, products I use, or my poetry.Thanks for reading!
Time is really flying. I cannot believe I've been loc'd for 19 months now. *Happy Dance*My hair looks the same and although it's still growing, I think the growth has slowed down for now.
Okay, if anyone else is having the following issue, please let me know how you've handled it. Everytime I wash my locs they tend to marry one another. This has only been happening over the last few months. I only retwist my hair after it fully dries (I do, however, spritz the roots when I retwist because I KNOW not to twist on dry hair). While my hair is drying, after a wash, I am constantly separating my locs so they don't loc together, but they still do! At the root that is. I tried something different. I used to always wear bantu knot-outs when I wanted to curl my locs and I never had this issue then. So when I washed my hair this time I decided to put my hair into bantu knots to dry. I wasn't going for the curly look, but this method of drying my hair seemed to help with the marrying issue a lot! Each loc is still separate although I haven't retwisted them. What works for you guys?
In other news, I am pleased to say that I was finally able to put my locs into one french braid w/o using an excessive amount of pins. I never pin my hair up (laziness), but I will have to start now. That is because *drumroll* I was accepted into a nursing program finally! YES!!! Let's take a moment to celebrate! Hahaha! I have to have my hair off my collar for clinical so I'm glad I finally can pin it up. My hair is so thick y'all. When I've attempted ponytails before I could only do one in the top of my head, but last night I was able to finally put my hair into a low ponytail. Hooray for another loc accomplishment, lol.
Here are a few pics, including some from my recent vacation (Hilton Head Island, South Carolina) enjoy and thanks for reading!
