Music
 
I love music. I have not been blessed with any musical talent though...rather I am forced to live vichariously through the people who's talent I think is brillant. Maybe one day, when I have a little money to burn, I will take up some kind of instrument....we'll see.

Napptural Hair
 
I will be re-starting my loc journey in the near future. Currently I am growing out my hair from a second chop done in January. Ideally, I'd like my locs to be the size of those pictured.
