I have been sooooooooooo unbelievably bored these past 4 days because there is nobody else at the house. I’ve read the entire Twilight series, downloaded lots of videos on Photoshop, looked at clothing, and caught up on gossip and yet I still have time on my hands!! Gahhhhh!
So I’ve decided that there is only one thing I don’t know how to do (ok, this isn’t really the case; clearly there are lots of things I don’t know how to do…..but go with me) and will learn to do it. (In a booming voice) How to French Braid!
Yup, that’s right. How to french braid (or braid if you are from Australia or England). “But why Jo, why would you want to learn that?” you sarcastically ask me. Here’s why.
When I was growing up, all the popular girls wore their hair in french braids. They’d have a single FB or FBed pigtails or wear them upside down, or however, but they had them and I didn’t. I didn’t know how to do it myself and neither did any of my girlfriend, so at some point I decided t hat I wasn’t interested in wearing my hair that way because it seemed girly, and I didn’t feel that way (ah, what a degree in Psychology and Social Behavior does to you). Fast forward to last year. I see Sharon with a french braid that came from one side of her head, down and around the bottom, and back up to the other side and then flourish-flourish-flourish and even though I don’t have as much hair, I can still do the down and around the bottom.
My arms still get tired before I can complete my braid, but I am going to keep working on it. Keep an eye out for my awesome hair (foreshadowing)!!!!
