    About professionalism, I'm about to start my second set tonight. I'm a clergy person and I work for a DV agency. The people at work have never seen my loc'd hair, but in both contexts, folks have seen me with all kinds of cuts and colors (currently green), but never with locs. This is going to be fun!

    I'm also thinking about this idea that locs impede professional progress. I'm still infuriated by the picture of the CEO of Crushers Club cutting off young Black men's locs because "it's symbolic of change and their desire for a better life." I'm furious because she apologized because people found out about it, but not because she realized how wrong it was to enforce that narrative. I don't see her as being any different as the woman who cut off the young wrestler's hair because the ref wouldn't let him compete.

    Anyway, before I go all the way AWF...I'll just say that I'm looking forward to living up to my username once again.
    I'm fearfully and wonderfully made from my scalp to the ends.

    I had a dream last night that my twists came out and half of my head was an afro and the other half was random baby twists/locs. The afro was about 2 inches long and all of my color was gone.

    Any interpreters in the house?

    Every now and again I have dreams about my locks being gone. A few times I dreamt that my hair was relaxed and I was either angry or sad because I did not want to start all over again.





    Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry.
    It merely astonishes me.
    How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company?
    It's beyond me.

    Just a few more sprays and I will be out of Frank Juice. Should I hold out for BF or get some now? Decisions, decisions...
