update #4

So another update because I just got out of a meeting with my ACE Plus couselour to discuss getting my college ID and all that stuff (yes, I am still in high school)

ACE Plus is a program for high school sophomores to go to community college and earn up to 1 year of college credits, so basically its the equivalent of just doing 1 year of college so I will already have the out of the way!

So I have decided since I don't have a lot of time on Tuesdays, I am going to leave this day for just updates and short post and leave Thursday to the lengthy post! Hopefully that will make the situation better for everyone including myself. 

So thanks for sticking around I will have a post probably about whats going on right now in the black community (the baltimore riots, and such) so tune in for that!

MY HAIR!

STORY TIME!

Welcome to another installment of story time! If you can even call these installments lol! ANYWAYS, I want to tell the story of how I started to go from straightening my hair to just going AU NATURAL!

 This is a fun little story!

So I am a mixed (african-american and irish) so if I was 2 different people I would like this. 




     OR





But no I look like this:



So anyways, towards the end of my freshman year in high school last year, I had decided to stop straightening my hair. I mean my mom has curly hair so I figured why not so this is a picture from the first day I went natural keep in mind I had and still have (not as much though) heat and chemical damage. 


Yes pretty short, I know well it has been almost a full year now and my hair comes down to my shoulders now. I do treatments and methods to get my hair to grow longer and some of them work while others are complete failures. But besides that I am so happy that I have decided to go natural. SOO HAPPY!

My hair goal is to get my hair down past my chest which is the length it was when I was a child. So for example around here

But I also have to keep in mind the shrinkage of curly hair and the fact that I have type 3b-3c texture hair. So I have to have patience and the willpower to do this. I can't wait till the day that I have reached my hair goals or even further. Today I am going to try something called the INVERSION METHOD (if you want to know more look up on google) and it hair been proven that you will grow over 1 inch of hair in just 7 days so wish me luck!


So end todays post, I want to thank everyone who has stuck around and thanks for all the nice comments and I hope to hear from more of you soon. Talk to you next week!

update #3

Sorry for the constant updates its just that I have been really busy with testing and end of the year stuff and I don't have a lot of time to do this because I arrived home late because I had a choir audition. 

But anyways, in the comments I want to know what you would want me to talk about. Like do you want me to tell you another story, do you want me to talk about a issue that is important to you. So leave a comment for that. 

Sorry this is so short!

Talk to you Thursday! (unless I'm replying to comments or replying to emails lol)

update #2

So, I have decided that I will start a something called updates (hence the title of today and tuesdays post) 

I will just give a little "update" on things about me and these posts will be more personal considering they pertain to me. 

So.. To get this post up and running. I want to start off by saying thanks for sticking around even if the post isn't funny or a rant or something else. SO THANK YOU!

Anyways, my anxiety has been getting a lot worse and it's really hard for me because nobody knows about it so I get picked on for stressing about "little things" and it's just really hard. If any of you guys have any coping methods please leave them in the comments or email me. It would be very much appreciated.

So thats all I have for today. Sorry this weeks post have been so short, it's just I had this testing called AzMERIT, all week (if you know what that is comment down below) Lets just say, that is 97% of why I'm stressing. 

Talk to you guys next week and hopefully I will have something up .

Stereotyping

Good Evening Loves,

I want to talk about something a little more serious today and that is stereotyping. Stereotyping is a HUGE issue in today's generation and I think it is truly ridiculous. I have been stereotyped my whole life... This is something that someone has actually said to me before. 

Me: Oh, hey you guys (as you can see I was totally chill)
Ignorant Person: Ohhhh, what are you doing here? You can't hang out with us because you are light skin! 
Ignorant Person 2: Yeah, aren't you supposed to be pregnant or something? 

When I was told this I was in complete and udder shock at how this group of kids at my school could say this to me. Lets just say I don't roll with them anymore. 

There are a whole bunch of stereotypes for people out there:
Black people: Likes chicken, watermelon, can't swim, SUPER GHETTO, unintelligent, loves to clean up. 

White People: the dumb blond, have no rhythm, flat butts, emo, suicidal, etc. 

Gays: very sassy, camp type, are pedophiles, like random one night stands, etc 

and the list goes on...

It is heartbreaking when people fuel the hate against people and do the stereotyping. Personally for me I ABSOLUTELY HATE fried chicken, and watermelon, and kook-aid. I hate it when people make these dumb and not to mention hurtful "jokes" and comments about people they don't even know. 

UGGGHHHH!! It just pisses me off, you know? 

Well anyway thanks for letting me vent to you guys and get this off my chest...


DISCLAIMER:
*All the stereotypes listed are from things I have heard people say and the internet.

My Natural Hair

Every since I was a child there has been talk about my natural hair. All my life my hair has been in braids, or a ponytail because I couldn't take care of my hair. So when I was younger my mom cut it so it would be easier to handle. Now that I am 15 years old and i obviously know how to do my hair it is to short to do. I have been taking biotin pills to help speed a long the process and it is working for the most part.

I have always been sensitive about how I look when I go out... It's not like I am not able to wear my hair down (its about shoulder length) it's about wanted to be able to wear it down without it getting all big and frizzy. Because of that I straightened my hair a lot and put relaxers in it which really damaged my hair. For 1 year and a half now I have stopped doing that to myself and my hair is slowly but surely going back to its normal self again. I seriously envy girls who have long and beautiful curly hair... I really do but if I keep my head up I know that I will be able to feel and look beautiful. 

 This is basically what my hair looks like now but shorter and looser curls. I want to feel confident in my own hair and skin. 

When In Doubt Kiss A Friend

STORY TIME!

Okay so here's a little story that I wanted to tell you all. Soooo first background information...
1. Nooo, I didn't just go up to some random girl and kiss her (we've known each other for a long time)
2. Everything you read tonight is true 100%
3. This was around Christmas time

So lets get on with the story...
Me and my friend, lets call her Beckifer (beck-eh-fur), we have been friends since like 7th grade and it is my sophomore year (10th grade) of high school now, so anyways I apparently attract a lot of male attention so I had 2 boys who would literally wait outside my 1st period classroom door just so they could catch me (BTDUBS, they still do this till this day) and me and my friend we would try to avoid those 2 boys who would wait outside my 1st period door but NOPE they would always catch up. They would literally look like this...  Hollaring at me...

 Keep in mind I had heard about them and was not so happy about what I was hearing...  So one day I asked my friend would she pretend to be my girlfriend... At first she was like NO! Then she came to her senses and helped a sista out! So we were walking to the classroom and those 2 boys was still standing there like this 
So I went up and told them that the girl I walked with was my girlfriend! AWW SO CUTE! NOPE, KEEP READING! After I had told them this they asked her to come over and she said hello introduced herself and all of a sudden one of the boys was like kiss! We were like MAYDAY! #ABANDONSHIP!

 We had no idea what to so you know what I did?? I looked her dead in the eyes shook my head up and down real slow and planted a big one on her.. After the kiss was over she looked at me with such anger in her eyes (you got to do what you got to do) I assumed they had got the message so we walked away... Beckifer moved away and you know what happened those boys began to wait for me again so the moral of the story is... NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO THE BOYS WILL NOT LEAVE YOU ALONE...
And that my friend is the story of how no matter how hard you try your beauty will attract guys who think you are lesbian lol. 

So that is the end of my story hope you guys enjoyed and if you did indeed enjoy leave a comment! SEE YOU NEXT WEEK :)
