Hello Hello

Me

Thank God I have a day off. Nursing school is becoming just a little stressful. The most important thing is to keep on top of all of my assignments and everything should fall in place. That means I must become super organized and make time for studying only.

Youtube Videos

For the football fans this video is for you.




Ladies with natural hair, do you hear these type of comments all of the time.




Good Blogs:

Reggie with good credit is the blog of a young African-American male who has worked hard to clear his debt. You should check him out for money tips.

Rhymes with Snitch is a gossip blog that goes a little harder than the other popular African-American blogs.

yep..
I get weird comments a heck of a lot. Or sometimes presumption that my hair is made with extensions. It's cool though.
It's weird comments from black people that drive me nuts. Like..
'oh I could never go natural, my hair is too tough.. you are soo lucky!'.

Or people who presume my hair makes me any more 'down with the cause'
or from people who think that I'm some earth mother type princess because of my hair..
or those who presume that just because I have natural hair, I have a problem with all people who perm their hair, or have weaves e.t.c.
Dang! It's just a hairstyle choice, I like natural hair, I see no reason to perm my hair if I did I would. If I felt like it, I'd perm it tomorrow if I wanted.. but I really like my hair the way it is so I won't.

@ soul- Do you visit the napprality forum? There is a thread there talking about the sterptypes of natural women. YOu just named a number of them right off the back. When I was natural I had a few thrown at me too.
