91:365 - braid

    Newer Older

    on day eighty-seven, i combed out one of my dreadlocks.
    i braided it, and left it like that.

    i kind of think it's time for the dreads to go.
    i'm tired of being judged for them.
    i'm tired of looking like a stereotype.
    (especially since it's a stereotype that i don't fit.)

    most of all i'm tired of being defined and identifed by them.

    one week from today they'll be a year old.

      I know how you feel, but Ive had 4 years to think of cutting them off!
      I keep saying I will, then I don't. Im sure I will one day soon though.
      A friend of mine shaved her head for charity recently, 4 years of dread growth, gone in such a short time. She looks awesome with a shaved head! I think I will try and undo mine. I look awful with short hair!

      I really like the composition of this and the noise.
