Simply Dreadful :)

Well, the dreads went in and they came out... It was an awful bummer. My great troops, Macy Ellsworth and Hannah Newell and Amy Ahrens fought through to the end to help me put them in. But the little guys slowly began the process of falling out. 1 hair at a time. There were strings of hair on the bottom layers and loose hair on the top. So, they came out :( And I was determined to not give up. However, I looked around to a lot of salons and found a few in Cape that specialize in dreadlocks. The problem is the prices rage from 180-600. And for those of you who know me, I find paying a lot of money for something like that is frivolous and foolish. (alliteration, I love it!) So, as of last night at 1130 my dread journey may have come to an end. My mother is probably manically laughing, singing the I told you so song but that's ok. You win some you lose some.
Well enough of that. School is beginning to get hectic. I have a lot of tests, and that is mostly what I have been doing all weekend. Tests, studying for tests and procrastinating on reading for tests. Yeah, yeah I know. It's horrible to procrastinate, but I honestly forgot about the chapter. Then I decided since it was Sunday and I had already forgotten up until then, there was no reason to study. It's ok though that's all I will be doing tonight....This weekend was productive though, I signed up for all my scholarships and FAFSA, which isn't due until March 1, and I am usually filling it out 2 days before. Well, my bible study is awaiting me, as is getting ready and doing something today. I will post a few pictures here of what the hair did look like. Have a wonderful day, enjoy the weather!
Oh and if you get a  chance listen to one of my new favorite songs: "This is the Stuff" Francesca Battisteli

Before the wax was put in

Starting, one side is done as is the back.

Radio Fun

Here I am, sitting at Rage 1037 (if you don't tune in an listen 9-12 sundays you should of at and I figured I would post. My family is listening tonight and my brother has officially decided that I am famous. :) He heard me on the station over the internet and couldn't believe it. It brings great joy to me that he thinks that. I may have not ever been cool in his eyes but I am now! Well today was kind of a big day, I ordered the stuff to put in my dreads. Im doing it and not looking back! But that wasn't the only thing. The Super Bowl! Packers won which was great but what really rocked my mind was the half tim show when Usher (who I have loved for years) came down from the dang ceiling! I screamed as did a friend of mine so I wasn't alone. We jumped up and down too it was pure joy! I am so glad he is coming back on the seen. Well any way a friend of mine Macy Ellsworth is beginning a process of going to Africa. I am so pumped for her, it reminds me of the first time I went to China. She starting to raise support and get all of her applications in. I hope that I will be able to go through the same process sometime in the near future. Only 3 more semesters and then I will be donw with college, and I am hoping God allows me to go for a journeyman or something. But I don't know for sure; I guess I will have to wait and see . I really have nothing else to say. Have a wonderful night, day or afternoon...whenever this catches you!

Bad hair day

Well, this morning I was blow drying my hair, and I realized something. My parents cursed me. I think secretly they wanted an 80s child. My hair grows at an alarming rate sometimes. Especially when I am blow drying it. I could have took the 80s by the horns and rocked it. However, this is not the 80s and my hair being so big I can hardly make it out of the door is not cool. However, maybe I won't have to worry about that soon. :) Oh yes mom if you are reading this hold on to the desk because remember dreds? I am seriously thinking about them. I think they are so beautiful and yes I am looking at my hair right now and thinking would I miss it how it is? But either way I have wanted dreds for a while and I think it's about time! Moving on. I have been reading Hosea lately (because I decided to take a journey through the minor prophets) and I have been learning a good amount. First, everyone says that he married a prostitute. However, I'm not so sure after studying. She was supposed to be the example of Isreal (if I were her I would have not been too happy). So, like Isreal, she was good at the beginning, follwed Hosea and had children. It wasn't until later that she went off and becam a craze! And then after that Hosea was told by God to take her back.... Just like God took good old Isreal back. Through the last few weeks though reading John, 1Cor, and now Hosea it's just so evident to me that's how we are with God. Sometimes I feel like Isreal. I think my journey with the prophets will be good. Sometimes it's hard and a little embarrassing (like today when my truck Bucky died and my friends had to push me through walmart parking lot) but it's so worth it. I look at Hosea and see how he faithfully followed the Lord, prostitute and all but he never looked back. I want to be like that. Life of singleness, life of missions, trials, bad hair days and doesn't matter.

Numero Uno

Well, I had a differnt blog but something happened, it blew up so here I am again. Starting a new one. College life = no life really. Studying is my life. And now that I am taking a Mass Com law class that sucks away most of the time I could spend doing other things... :) Well I have a few goals on this blog. 1. actually allow my family to keep up on my life (dad and mom that's to you mostly) 2. give random recipes from the cook books that I am trying out. 3. Try to keep up with this because I think it would be beneficial, being a journalism major they say this is good to do. Well, right now I am going to study the culture of the deaf, which in my creepy prof. language means learning about the anatomy of the ear. Either way, I have to study it. Then probably will look at Mass Com law do a forum and feel a little overwhelmed, but hey I am working my butt off for the good grade in that class. Well here I go, productivity! Bye
