Just made it through another long week and the end of the shortest month of the year. Sometimes it seems like each week is getting more compacted with stuff than it has been in times past. When I get home from work, I immediately put on lounge clothes, warm socks, and grab a really warm blanket or throw. And since I'm wearing this bun in my hair now, I might be mistaken for a granny. LOL
I have really been enjoying working in my craft space, even if it is sporadically, and putting together the videos. It's very therapeutic. And to tell you the truth, I want to finish the room my dad and I started together and I love putting the videos together so much that I can't wait for the next chance to work in my space so I can make a video.
Hair maintenance hasn't been a priority this year. Yes, I can't wait to get to the place of the length and thickness that I want. As you know, thickness is a non-issue for my hair at this point. And it always gets thicker before it gets longer. I've learned over the past year really not to look at so many hair videos and blogs unless I'm looking for something specific. One real reason is because "hair envy" is real in the natural-hair community and when hair bloggers and vloggers keep showing their length checks and you're like, I've been natural for x amount of years and their hair is growing faster than mine and they've only been natural for 5 months or so, it can flare up some hair esteem issues. My goal is just healthy hair at whatever length it is and low-maintenance styles. With that being said, here's a video of my latest trim. bruuuhhhhaaaahhaaa Sounds like an oxymoron? Maybe a paradox? No, now I'm thinking it's more of an irony. Yeah, irony is my final answer.
