when food is almost ready! :D
Mehn, I’m slowly mediating away from yarn braids……. I could have worn better pannies for ze dress.
Anonymous: so i recently just found out that my scalp is allergic to synthetic hair, (well not recently but i was hoping the allergy would stop since i didn't want to against my "not spending more than £10 on hair so no way am i getting human hair and only keeping it in for a month" thing,) anyways nothing is working so i was thinking of yarn braids, but i don't know, how do you wash your hair with them in?, and moisturise, this yarn braid thing is new to me so i really don't know much. thank you!
Damn, sis. That’s sucky. I’m sorry. Synthetic hair ….. the yarn you buy has to be synthetic too. When I wash my hair with the yarn in it, I focus mainly on my scalp. It is time consuming, but I really get to the hair roots with scrubbing, shampoo, conditioner and err’thang. And then I oil my scalp. Takes a lot of time with the braids getting in the way, but it’s the best I can do.

So if any of you want to meet up, let me know!
Anyway, I went out last night and came to the realization that the club scene is just not my life. This hit me when I spent an hour sitting in the club bathroom last night giving no fucks because I did not want to be in that setting anymore. Getting ready to go out is such a chore and I can’t do heels anymore. I just can’t party like I used to. And I’m just too cheap to drink after the realization that my drinking tolerance has heightened.
I think I’m finally at a balance.
I’ve gone through stages of extreme partying and then extreme hermitting. The partying came with being a freshman in college and hermitting was from being in back to back long-term relationships.
And as much as I enjoy spending time alone, I enjoy being around people now. But definitely not in a party/club setting because I feel that the majority of people are out for attention in one form or another. Nothing wrong with that, but I’d rather go to a bar with a friend, talk over a drink (mine being water), people-watch for a few, and then go home. I’d rather stay at home and play card games with friends. I’d rather curl up with the one I love and watch movies.
One of my friends asked me how I intended to end up in a relationship if I don’t put myself out there (lol, really??!) and I’m in no rush. Random hook-ups and meaningless flirting just doesn’t cut it for me. I always look for something deeper in people that I interact with and that is hard to do ….. at night ….. in a club ….. at 1am….
I feel myself growing. Either I’m growing or I’ve stopped giving a shit and I’ll end up a super hermit again.

Fem Art Friday Feature: Kara Walker
Contemporary artist Kara Walker deals with the complicated issues of race, gender, and sexuality in her art pieces. These themes are often explored through her well-known silhouettes pieces. In her own words…
“I was really searching for a format to sort of encapsulate, to simplify complicated things…And some of it spoke to me as: ‘it’s a medium…historically, it’s a craft…and it’s very middle-class.’ It spoke to me in the same way that the minstrel show does…it’s middle class white people rendering themselves black, making themselves somewhat invisible, or taking on an alternate identity because of the anonymity … and because the shadow also speaks about so much of our psyche. You can play out different roles when you’re rendered black, or halfway invisible.” [Source]

When I’m about to brush my teeth, and my toothpaste falls off before reaching my mouth and I start to brush my teeth.
And then I have this brief moment of confusion where I go, “What happend to it? Is the paste already in my mouth? I’m sure I put more than that on there.”
Greatest Olympic Moments: Jesse Owens, Berlin, August 1936.
In August of 1936, American athlete Jesse Owens won four gold medals, setting three world records and tying a fourth in the 100 yard dash - all in front of Adolf Hitler, who had planned to use the Games as a tool to promote the physical superiority of the Aryan race.
