Hiya my very loyal and awesome readers. Remember way back when I told y'all I was going to graduate school but that doesn't mean anything to you because I had a 'schedule' and planned to continue posting regularly? Well I failed. Sorry. But I'm absolutely giddy to be back (as I start to dougie)!
Ok, so since I've been gone a lot has changed. Want the cliff notes? I've become mom to another doggie, a stray rat-terrier that I found lounging on my front lawn; I've become a namaste chanting yoga girl; I'm single again and trying to navigate the dating scene aka exhausted; I totally ditched eyeshadow and only throw on concealer and Ruby Woo lipstick when I want to get 'fancy'. Yes, since our last chit chat about makeup it has been almost non-existent in my life. I miss our weekly chats about Nars blushes and curating the perfect brows dearly. I even miss taking 102 photos just to get three decent looking shots for my YouTube tutorials. Oh and how can I forget the most noticeable change? I cut my hair. We all know that boredom coupled with a temporary loss of identity means something and someone is getting cut. In this case it was my hair. One thing remains the same though, I still eat wayyy too much Chinese food.
Speaking of hair...
After I decided that my initial hair cut wasn't short enough I decided to go to a barber. My brother got me an appointment with his coiffeur and I was set. I get there and the convo goes a little like this:
Me: I want the sides tapered a little more and I also want a little more off the top.
Him: (feeling my hair) Your hair is so soft. What do your man think about this?
Me: (I was still attached) He fully supports me cutting my hair. You'll probably need to take a little off the back too.
Him: Yo its killing me to have to cut your hair. You know how many bald chicks walking around wishing they had this thick soft hair.
Me: You are more than welcome to sweep up what you cut and help them out.
Him: I'm saying, its already hard out here for women. Men like hair; long hair, big asses and a cute face. Why you think women out here getting ass shots and weaves down to the floor? They ain't going through all that pain for nothing. Its all to get some attention from men. You got a cute face, your ass is alright but you about to cut all your hair off. You sure you want me to do this?
Me: (with a screw face) Just cut my damn hair.
I probably should have left but I just let him finish my hair. I tried to come up with slick "let me school yo ass" closing remarks before I sashayed out of the shop but I decided to let it go because a wise man (Jay-Z) told me don't argue with fools because people from a distance can't tell who's who. When I got in the car I chuckled. Men.
Just recently I took my short-haired don't stand a chance self to a local pub (yes I say pub instead of bar because I'm bougie) to kick it with my girls and the same ignorant coiffeur didn't recognize me and tried to "holla".
Anyway I miss you guys and look forward to chatting regularly again. What's been up with you?
I wish you peace and blessings. Namaste!
