What I did not consider is how busy I would be during the weekend!! I had friends in town from Boston and a jam packed, sleepless schedule ahead. I slept in my clothes and makeup several times lol. I even ended up cooking on the charcoal BBQ grill for several hours on Saturday! So needless to say- I was NOT feeling the pressed hair in terms of upkeep! I only slept in curlers for one night, and the curl fell quickly thereafter, nary to return again. I ended up bunning for almost the entire weekend, but I came up with the Meagan Good (or maybe Kerri Hilson) inspired bang thingy and rocked that for several days. I only had to pop a curler in front- for as little as an hour before heading out.
So here are the picts. It's definitely grown a lot (APL in places) and the new color is actually a bit subdued while straight.
Party Time! Graduation cookout on Sat with my best homies and Jemima's family!
I plan to RUN home and wash it today. It's been raining for the past few days and I have lost control of the press. I'm soooo done with it!
And..... I got my bottom braces!! Monday. And curse them!! They hurt. I got blue bands so that I could see the bracket placement easily and embrace the metal I had to get on the bottom (vs the ceramic on top).
They are alllllllll over the place and I clearly have a long ways to go.
Teeth are twisted that I didn't even know were twisted. sigh.
I am also slowly starving to death, though I am no longer in pain when I'm just sitting still today lol. But my teeth don't meet properly if at all any more already. and I hit the bottom brackets with my top teeth if I'm not careful (ouch!) and.... I have a lisp, because making the "S" sound hurts the worst. Awesome.
