Diary of an Honest Naturalista: Week 11

I want to officially apologise to everyone that has been reading my diary. I have put the cart before the horse. For the past 10 weeks, I have been honestly documenting my experiences about my natural hair, and how it has been affecting different parts of my life, but I have never really mentioned who I am.

My name is Anna, a 24-year old Edo girl, born and bred in Lagos. I am the third out of five children of three guys and two girls. I am the only natural hair lady in family, and as of now, haven't received any support from any of my family members in respect to my decision to go natural. Maybe if I had been close my sister, who is the first child, things would have been a little bit different.

As you all know by now, I am working temporarily in a small company, before I go for my NYSC this November. I studied Banking and Finance, and from what I have gathered, can work in any kind of company with my degree.

As at this moment, my hair length falls is in between short and medium length. You know that frustrating stage, where  your hair is not short enough to rock a teeny weeny afro, but not long enough to park into one, without you having to use pins to clip it here and there, thereby letting the whole world think you are trying too hard to put your hair into a bun? Yes, that frustrating stage is where I am right now.

I won't say I am a talkative, but I am definitely not quiet. I know how to express myself with clarity when necessary. I pick my battles cautiously, and basically don't really care what people think, well, to a large extent. I try my best to be good, but I am not perfect, so I make mistakes at times.

This is all I can think of for now. Many other things will be revealed in future diary editions. And just in case, you are new to my diary, click here to catch up on the recent interesting events in my life.

Now that I have done the proper introduction, and you now know a little more about me, the regular diary will resume next week.
