Let the dance of life begin

I am here to sound off on anything I feel I need to voice about as well as to share and to have others share with me. My sister locks are what got this started.... so here is to celebration of my 'nappy tresses, my sister locks' and indeed life with all it offers.

Alot on my mind

So I am just going to vent.....lemme start of by saying I was not in the 'system' at my job so I did not get paid on the designated day so you know I felt like I was going to blow a gasket I was so pissed!!!!! It took me three hours to settle down and I never got paid till the next day so do I have a right to be pissed?????? Lessons learnt make sure i ask if I have filled out all the necessary documantation when I start woking even though I do not believe it is my resposibility!!!!! The next thing is I am working in an environment where the energies are so negative!!! I am learning so much but the negative energy is sapping my strength!!!!! sure I toyed with the idea of leaving but I have decided it must not be because I am running away I have to learn how to toughen up nuh true? whats a gurl to do?

I also need to decide where I want to go with my career cause I dont want to lose the energy of love I have for it presently, I mean and I really would love to have more control over my time!!!! oh lawd I feel like I am complaining no not really I am venting!!!!

So on the positive note I got paid and I have some money my own for the first time in almost 5 years so thats great (:

Oh another thing I have a post paid phone so I go to buy a phone card and I did not check the card before I left the store it turns out it was not for the amount I wanted so I go back and the young lady behind the counter says I have to come back when the lady who sold me the card is there hmmmm I drove away thinking I would just forget it but I am not gonna lesson learnt check the values on cards when purchased (:

However I am fine loving my life and everything about it family, friends and even those who teach me to be strong!!!
one love, loving life and my sister locks still

Weighing in

Ok 22 months no more braiding and banding and the hair seems to be holding up just fine. I am a self confessed product junkie so I have tried a ton of stuff but I rearly do or maybe I have never done a review oh well maybe I have well I have found that these products are presently my favourite
  • Tui shampoo from carols daughter this product is great!!!!!! I wish it came in a larger size
  • Black Vanilla Leave-in Conditioner also form carols daughter light enough to use every day and smells great (: gimme vanilla anytime
  • Aubrey Organics Green Tea Clarifying Shampoo I dont think the smell is great but it does what it says it will for me
  • Sisterlocks Moisture Treatment & Reconstructor I think once you have been given the go ahead by your consultant these are 2 products you should never be without

This is whats working right now but if any one has ever used the mint and seamoss shampoo from Carols Daughter I want to know its consistency (: oh ps the colour at the ends of my hair is adding to my bunching issues so depending on your curl texture you might want to forego the colour at least until your locks settle!!!

Just keep your head up

Hello blog world mum keeps telling me my blog is so boring cause I dont blog as often as some of my fellow bloggers, but I have to be in the mood or have something burning in my thoughts and usually when I feel like blogging if I do not do it right away I forget and so it (the burning) never makes it to the blog. Hard to believe that Wenesday was 22 months of being sister locked so the 2 year mark is just around the corner, but as tomorrow is promised to no one I celebrate this mark on the journey in this moment. Mum also just informed me that a class (sister locked training) is sheduled for January in Kingston so I am gonna look into it. It is alot of cash to out lay and when you consider we have to multiply by 70 @ the moment who knows where it will be in Dec.??????? the value of our dollar that is !!!!! so I am gonna have to really think about it, the refresher would be a fraction of that so there is an option there.

The house is on its way back but its been my DH's major project as I am at work that really sucks but what to do????????? I have some issues with my job but as it has been proven I need to be really careful how I express them here so maybe 'the legal mind' could shed some light on this for me (: ie how to do it with out getting into trouble.

I am also going to have to invest in a dryer I need to be able to dry some of the excess water from my hair expecially when I am in the mood to wash my hair late at night. So I am going to look for one here I know I have seen them so I should be able to get one. I know that very tight coily hair does not reflect light and so it is not shinny but when my hair is over due for washing and I wash it is looks different I mean am i just imagining this?

Life on the streets of the republic

gotta drive in this most days(:

I am driving home today, I am down town the second city aka Montego Bay aka the republic, and there was so much traffic and people and traffic and more people, boy I am wondering if this is the way it is all the time or the city is just happy the JLP won (: they swept the 'west' Listen I am now convinced if you can drive in this city you can drive any where. Every one especially the taxi drivers drive with no respect or regard for any one else on the road and the pedestrians I swear they all have licences plates on their butts !!!!! or at least they should but that said there is never a dull moment on these roads..... but I am enjoying every minute of it, as crazy as this sounds.

The only reason I dont have pics, my camera was home not in my bag where it usually is, but you know I am gonna get some.

one love still
