Lazy days are not laundry days, I’ve recently learnt. Living in a dorm
and having to do most things, I relied on my mother to do, has taught me
that. Cooking and cleaning is not as easy as 50s housewives and home
makers (as my English Language students like to call their mothers) make
it seem, definitely got a new found respect for them.During my first
month here I became a regular at the local konbini (convenient store)
and Kura Sushi (100yen per plate, sushi restaurant/dinner-placey). I
soon learnt that being lazy is expensive when my bank account had just
enough money to stay open, but not enough for me to draw any. The number
on the screen taunted me as my mother’s words ran through my head,
“remember to budget, don’t spend it all on snacks and clothing.” Well,
I’ve learnt my lesson and am proud to say it’s just over my second month
here and I have not starved to death yet and my bank statements are at a
healthy number. I’ve learnt how to NOT burn onions while frying them
and that you have to let an egg that has been in the fridge get to about
room temperature before frying it. It is now safe-ish to be around me
in the kitchen. Wowuuuu! for a post that has the word “laundry” in it’s
title, I haven’t talked much about my laundry skills…which are Ace if i
do say so myself, I haven’t changed the colours of any of my clothes or
shrunk anything yet. So I’m pretty sure I can get my adult badge around
I’ve been natural for three years now and I wanted to do a collage of some of my favorite hairstyles over time.
After I big chopped in 2013, my hair grew like crazy. It’s possible.
I’m thinking of cutting it again actually.
Anyway l, hope you guys enjoy and even are inspired to transition to natural… embrace ya natural and love what grows from YOUR scalp.
If you need any help with your hair, hit me up.
I’m not a guru, but, I know some shit.
