Knotty Roots Unite!
Name - Inky.
Age - 20.
Short. Black-ish. Resembling a badly made mullet. Mega wavy. In the process of growing out, and the back of my head seems to grow twice as fast!
How long have you had dreads or how long have you wanted dreads?
Too long. I developed an interest around 9, was craving them by 12 and my mother never consented, thought they were dirty and so I never got around to getting them. I tried to supplement the craving with dye, crazy cuts/styles/accessories... I even did the synthetic dreads - which made me positive that I had to have read ones. And soon. So I'm in the process of growing a few inches before I get knotty (I plan to have the dreads between chin and shoulder length when they're done). I'm impatient! But my boyfriend is hiding the scissors from me, so I don't do anything drastic!
Legalization of Marijuana - I think it should be totally legal, with laws such as alcohol (no driving whilst intoxicated, legal purchasing age, etc). I personally don't use it (me and the ol' reefer don't mix well), but know many functional people who use it in moderation and carry out life.
Gay Marriage - Should also be legal. Love has no gender, and I don't think the government should be able to dictate what people can and cannot do in their own personal life.
War in Iraq - Sigh... well, I'm from Australia, and even though we have troops over there at the moment, I try not to get involved with this much at all anymore. I think Bush is absolutely embarrassing his country, and the whole situation is sad. Mind you, our Prime Minister is embarrassing the hell out of us by following Mr. Bush around like a lost pup, giving whatever is asked for.
Best Dread wax - I haven't started my dreads yet, but I plan to start them with KnottyBoy wax. I don't plan on waxing them more than I have to, but just to get them going.
