uncle jimmy + me + lil jimmy
i have had my hair locked for a very, very long time. august would make it 12 yrs.
and since 2007 i have been slowly chopping it off.
and i think i am *almost*ready to cut it all off.
i luv luv luv my hair locked + i really do luv the way my hair is now but i am ready for a change. it’s just that when you’ve had ur hair a certain way for so long, it kinda is hard to see myself without it. in a way it is a big part of me, especially now, since many people identify me by my hair + associate naKIMuli with “the girl with the funky hairstyle.” it’s gonna be hard to top that. lol but it’s not about topping urself (or is it? hhhmmm…) as it is more about evolving. growing. changing. being comfortable with people seeing u differently. and seeing urself differently.
i do have a couple of fears about cutting it off:
they aren’t really "fears" but more of me not really being at the 100% mark of a chopping-of-the-hair-commitment yet. (i did say I was almost ready.) i just haven’t thought it all through.
not sure when the big chop-off will happen. but i am excited to do it. the urge is here. and i know one day, without even thinking about it i’m gonna just say to uncle jimmy “cut it all off!”
and i am 99% sure i am gonna loc my hair again in the future. in the distant future.
uncle jimmy came by a couple of hours ago + bought me a valentine’s day gift:
damn this pic is maaaad blurry. but i was too lazy to take it again. lol (and u get to see my broke down file cabinet in the back. uncle jimmy was supposed to be fiixing it for months now…but i digress…)
but uncle jimmy bought me a balloon…
some chocolate that i can’t eat cuz there is milk + gelatin in it. :( but the interns r coming tomorrow! so maybe they will want some…
and some flowers…
with a note that says: UMTMTM (UJ) wtf? i asked him what is means. he said it stands for U Mean That Much To Me (Uncle Jimmy)
think i laughed my ass for about 5 mins straight! lmao luv my uncle!!!
happy valentine’s day to u + urs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
