Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
i'm sorry, but the very notion of a man (who doesn't have long hair, isn't a stylist, and doesn't have daughter who's hair he needs to care for) running a natural hair blog... it just wreaks of male privilege to me.

I hate that April was the one that didn't pass the boards. Why is it always the mean, conniving, law breaking, jerks that get everything that they want. April's been a relatively nice person since she came on the show and now she gets the short end of the stick...

-Meredith broke the law by messing with the trials and she was extremely sick the entire test and didn't she steal something once before? Everyone was willing to stand by her when she screwed up everything but Seattle Grace doesn't want April after one stupid test she can take over next year. They let George take that other test over...
-Cristina is mean and she cursed out the dude (Mr. Feeny!) who was giving the test.
-Karev's been a jerk since season 1 and he was hours late to the test and missed the first section.
Avery....I don't have any major problems with him that I can think of at the moment.
But April's the one that didn't pass...okay.

Why do they always have deep conversations in the operating room in front of everybody....

Omg, Lexie!!!! Wasn't expecting that.

Did think this would be so long. Maybe I just should have started a new thread...lol

April gets the short end cause she's that kind of person - a short end of the stick taker, lol. Sleeping with Avery is the only thing I've seen her do on the show where she was confident and assured of herself. Just as in real life, the jerks get away with stuff and the nice honest people just get in trouble. Oh well.

I just need Avery to get naked more so the image can fuel my dreams. That is all.

I'm right here, y'all!

I've been working really hard to figure my life out this semester. I feel like I can check a few things off:

1. I just found out I got a 4.0 with 17 hours.
2. I'm starting a promising internship as a research assistant in my potential career field this summer. Invaluable experience and opportunity! They'll work with me until Fall '13 when I'm ready to apply to graduate school.
3. I'll be working full time this summer.
4. Taking 2-3 summer classes and then...
5. Graduating in DECEMBER!

I'm really excited and infinitely grateful. I've also learned a lot about myself this year. I think this is what growing up feels like? Not sure.

I will have to move back into my dad's this summer though. I don't want to, considering I moved out when I was 17 and I'm used to going at my own schedule... but I don't think it will be too bad given that I have a car now. Also, I'd like to work and save up some dollars.

Oh, most importantly: I got my first curl-friendly haircut.
