I have actually been watching youtube tutorials on natural hair styles for the last hour or so and I just watched one on a Bantu knot twist out which gives the most amazing curls ever! I don’t think I’ve watched any nikkimae2003 videos yet. Next I want to watch one on Senegalese twists because those are also beautiful.
I want to have Chris show up unexpectedly while she’s doing her hair and she’s got half of it straightened out and rest of it up in clips and then he sits there and watches her put it up in Bantu knots.
As someone who has stick straight very fine hair, I am finding this whole process eyeopening.
I watched Queen Latifah’s Beauty Shop movie a few years ago and loved it. I may have to go watch it again and see if I recognize any of the styles they do. Seriously, I have such a better appreciation for all the gorgeous hair I’ve been looking at now that I understand how much work it takes to look that beautiful.
~♡~just in case you needed a boost of happy…here’s McCoy dancing in a wetsuit…
cndios, let me share the happy with you.
okay, she actually was saying she pineapples her hair.
Yay! Nutella gives her vote of approval for Fifer!
I should probably go delete that warning message on the first chapter since she’s sticking around. :D

Too bad she only has sisters. It would’ve been fun to have her brother(s)/cousins play basketball with him by way of deciding whether or not he was okay. I like that you’ve made him a capitalist-with-a-possible-heart, and cocky-but-not-a-total-dick.
She’s got cousins. And sisters. Not all the girls in her family are klutzes.
Yay! I’m glad she’s getting some love.
I think you sent this before I posted the second chapter and I’m just now seeing it, so hopefully you still love her.
That’s a pretty good first date. They make each other laugh. What else do you need?
And I’m glad you’re loving it.
Thank you, darling!
Fifer pulled her door shut and slipped in the key to slide the deadbolt home when she saw the post-it note stuck to the green paint.
Pizza tonight? Pepperoni? C-
She’d seen him twice in the last three days, both times heading opposite directions on the stairs. He’d been bringing Nathalie back in from a walk as she had been heading to work, and the other time she’d been coming in as he had been leaving, dressed in a nice suit. She had slowed on the stairs so she could watch him check his mailbox and then cross the foyer, and to her utter embarrassment he had caught her reflection in the glass doors and turned and waved. She’d never taken the rest of the stairs faster in her life.
She opened her door, found a pen inside the Sudoku book on her coffee table, and wrote
Vegetarian. 7:30? Fifer
on the note before she stuck it to his door. She locked her door, stuffed her hands in her coat pockets, and smiled gleefully as she hurried down the stairs.
Re-identification of Viking corpses has revealed that half of their warriors were female.…Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.
just in case some people try to say they don’t trust this source: here’s usa today, the original one, and if you take a look at that you can find the professor responsible for these quotes. he teaches at the university of stirling and he has a doctorate degree in medieval history. hella
I had not thought this far ahead.
Don’t. Just don’t. I don’t know of anyone who has done this where it hasn’t had serious emotional repercussions. So, no.
