Have you ever been rejected before?  If you have, you know how it feels.  It’s emotionally painful and depressing.  I was talking to “L” on Christmas day when I told him that I liked him.  Shortly after I texted him, he replied that I was too young for him.  Later I am considering a post why love has no age but for now… He also said we are better off being friends! I was upset that he didn’t see me as more than a friend, but I found ways to get over it!

Tips From Unfortunate Experiences

Written by Caymen Stockbauer

I watched a video on youtube on how to get dead ends off your hair without losing length or spending money. As the really pretty Brazilian girl walked on the camera with long thick brown hair I knew i found the right vlog. While watching the video I repeat each of her steps in my very own bedroom. First, she sprayed her hair with tap water to dampen it. Next, she twisted her hair all the way down to the ends really tight. Then, she took a lighter and gently went over all the ends sticking out of the twist. WHAT A GREAT IDEA RIGHT?? No. My hair caught on fire and i went about two weeks with my hair pulled back in different styles. The point? Don’t put a lighter to your hair, even if a pretty vlogger does it.

My wash days and I have a love and hate relationship. They either go smoothly or have me wishing I would have gone to a salon to have someone else deal with my hair.

I would become frustrated with my hair if things were not going as planned. As a result I would begin to lose ungodly amounts of hair (mostly shedding but there was breakage too), which was defeating the purpose of why I went on my hair journey to begin with. It is no secret that when you are in a time crunch, you should not take it out on your hair. Read More
