Greetings everyone !
Happy Valentines Dayyyyyy ❤️❤️! (I contemplated saying Happy New Year but that’s kind of late, right?) I hope you had a great day full of Looooooove.
I’ve been MIA for quite a while, because I took some time out to rejuvenate myself, focusing on uni and restoring my soul.
I’m back now…well, sort of, because I’m still writing exams (this is NOT life!!) Professor Keating from the movie “Dead Poets Society (did anyone else have to watch and analyse this movie in high school?) made Carpe Diem (lat.: Seize the Day)look sooo easy.
Unfortunately in real life, exam period means making the library your new home and trying to put as much information in your head as possible and on top of that making it make sense is that even proper English?, meanwhile saying bye bye to your social life… #TheStruggleIsTooReal
I have to admit that there have been a few nervous breakdowns while studying, including me saying I’m done with this and spending an hour on Instagram moving on to playing Kim Kardashian Hollywood (please don’t judge me and I won’t judge you *Chris Brown voice*) facing my books again and almost crying (did I say almost? I’m an emotional person) … Anyways, anyone who can relate to this will understand when I say #TheStruggleIsTooReal.
There are three things that have helped me keep my sanity in check during this exam period, which are
1. Taking one step at a time
2. Preparing ahead and
3. ASKING people for help (!),like fellow students and even professors ,they have an e-mail address and office hours for a reason, which is US.
Please share your tips on how you deal with exam stress ?
Moving on to a more pleasant topic …let’s get to business shall we ?
There’s something that I’ve been thinking about for a while now.. there was and still is this whole stir up in the natural hair community about different hair types, which some refer to as “racism”.
The curlier the hair, the harder they stare, in admiration and awe, aspiring to be like you and have hair like you.
The kinkier the hair, well,the harder they just stare, and most of the times its not in admiration.
Have you ever met those naturalistas that insist they naturally have super super curly hair? They say: ” I have “type 3 hair” As in the kind of hair that gets bouncy curls the minute water touches it ? But you can clearly see it’s coily or kinky.
Some may call it neglecting one’s roots but I like to call it confusion.
So my question is: What went wrong?
I hope you’ll join me trying to find an answer to that question and many more questions in my upcoming web series “Hairtype: Natural”.
