Twisted Updo and Curlformers Attempt (CAUTION: PICTURE HEAVY)

Hey guys... so this is long overdue, but let us play catch up.

In the past month I successfully attempted a twist updo.

I finally got around to trying curlformers. But I made the sections too small and ran out of  them by the time I got to the top part of my head. So I proceeded to improvise with perm rods *smh*
Lets just say that it didn't quite work out as I planned it ( please excuse the weary look on my face LOL) . So I spent about an hour and a half trying to style the crazy mop of curls on my head and came up with THIS:

Unfortunately, this style only lasted a day, which doesn't surprise me. I turned it into a braid-out and went on with my life. I did try curlformers again for graduation, this time with bigger sections, and as you can see from my graduation post, it was a success!!

Hey guys, I have been MIA because I was preparing to GRADUATE FROM HOWARD UNIVERSITY!!!!

Yes, I graduated from Howard University College of Arts and Sciences on May 11th, 2013, with a B.S. in Biology. My cumulative GPA was 3.93. I graduated from the Honors Program, and I also was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa honor society that week.

I am extremely proud of myself. I worked hard. Sacrificed a lot of 'social time'. But it paid off because now I have a degree to show for it. No I didn't cry, but I did feel sad at times because I was going to miss college. But every phase of life has a duration, and now I am moving on to my next phase. Im moving back home with my parents, finding a job ( hopefully in my field), taking two classes during the fall and spring semester, and applying to nursing school. My goal is to get accepted into University of Pennsylvania's Accelerated BSN/MSN program so I can become a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. But I do have some back up schools I will apply to in the event that I don't get accepted into that program.

 I dearly value my education, and all the things I have learned. Why? Because I love to learn =). Congrats to everyone who is graduating in this season! We made it!! <3 Toodles!
