I’ve been at my cousin’s house for a few days now. The day I got in, I was too tired to do anything but lie on the couch and watch tv. Same goes for the day after that. Today though, I vowed to get up, shower, and… I took out my braids! I washed my hair and everything and currently my cousin is straightening it for me. Right now, only part of my hair is straightened, so the bottom part is all smooth and silky and the top part is completely in its natural state, so it’s a huge afro! This is the first time in a long time that I’m letting my hair “breathe.” Normally, the turnover between one set of braids and another is no more than 24 hours, which everyone continuously tells me is not healthy for my hair. It just got to the point where I was so tired of the braids that I had to take them out immediately, so I did, and I don’t plan to get them done again for at least two more weeks. Who knows what I’ll do with my hair in-between then?! The plan for tomorrow is to leave the house, and I really want to pick up some yarn so I can start my new project. If that happens tomorrow, it will be the subject of my first knitting post. Also, travel post about days trip from Madrid coming right up!
