Happy Birthday to Me!

I'm 20!!!
There are people that I would like to thank for making my day great.
Grandma Kim
The only person that actually called and said happy birthday.
You are a person that I wish I would have always had in my life. I don't know how we became so close, but I am grateful. You were there for me at the crack of dawn and made me alright. You give me a different way to look at things and no matter what you will always mean something so close to my heart. Your my pocket homie and I don't know what I would do with out you.
I am so happy I know you. You made me feel really special. You gave me your ice cream when that is not what you wanted to do. You joked and laughed and went out of your way to make it great.
Thnk you for driving me to get the things for my birthday. I am so glad you help me when you do. I am happy you could come to the gathering for me. Thanks for hopping around like a hobbit.
Do I have to say it? I know you already know. My suga, my breeze, my hope. Thanks for being you.
They say Libras are a scale. A long time ago I thought i found someone that added to my balance. They just added to the side I was on, but didn't even me out. But you, you helped evened me out. Your my yang, your my zen, you keep me calm and help me see it all. The way you say things and your method of delivery help me soooo much. I am so happy I did not let others stop me from talking to you.
Thanks for being the wild one. You got it jumping when it wasn't going anywhere. Thank you for being the catalyst to the night. I am happy we are growing closer. Maybe one day I will stop freaking you out.
People are given to you as a gift. It is your responsibility to take care of it. I value all of the bonds I have made and I truly want to say thank you all for contributing to making my 20th birthday an amazing day.
-Love G

On My Weave

Week 1:
After about a week or so, my hair was getting very tangled! I put Knot Today detangler and water in it and it worked while my hair was wet but when my hair dried it was clumped, matted and gross looking. I also have to wet my hair every time it gets dry. Wetting it flattens it, gives it movement and detangles it. However when this hair is wet, it drips black. It is as if the hair was dyed before it got packaged. They drippings spotted my clothes. I felt like a Soul Glo rep. I also tried to blow it out to straighten, that was an epic fail...
Week 2:
To stop the clumping and to get the hair from dripping black, I washed my weave. I parted it into 4 sections and used Dr. Bronner's castile soap. I detangled my hair, rinsed it and braided it while I was in the shower. After I was done, I let my hair air dry. If you blow dry it, the glue for the closure and invisible part would slip.
  1. This hair is beautiful.
  2. I love the curls and I love how it looks and feels.
  3. I do love that you can convert it from straight to curly.
  4. Its thick and worth the $30 a pack.
  1. If you add any product to this hair you have to wash it within the next 2 days. DO NOT ADD PRODUCTS IT WILL MAT AND BE HARD TO COMB. IT WILL FREE DREAD.
  2. It tangles & mats so easily.
  3. You have to keep it wet to get the natural curl look.
  4. It is not easy to blow out and straighten.
  5. It drips black when you wet it... ewww.
  6. Ends get ratty very quick.

My mommy doesn't like my hair
So I thought was gonna walk 12 laps around the track, I need to build myself up before I try to do the most.


She Get It From Her...

Weightloss... Round 2

I know, I know. I have not been completely up-to-date with my weight loss success on the Zi Xui Tang Bee Pollen Pills. After I stopped taking them for 2 weeks I gained the weight I lost back. It is not September 20th and I have my weight back to 227. Now I am starting fresh. This morning (it is 2:31am. Yes mom, I'm still up) I will wake up at 6:45am and go to the track. I plan on walking 3 miles which is 12 times around the track. I am also taking my pills. From here is where we will start to document my weight loss on my weight loss PAGE. I will also try to keep a log of food I eat.
