TCAF Roundup & Embarrassing Stories! My TCAF experience, meeting friends, and me being a seriously awkward ball of pink. It’s a long one, but I think because I haven’t posted for a few weeks it was well deserved right? Bonus points if you can count how many times I say awesome in this video. Because when I was editing I lost count. I think I need to learn some new descriptive words.
Also this took me TWO DAYS to upload. Because youtube was being all weird and such. Please know how much I love you because I kept trying and trying even when things looked bleak. Look into your heart Simba. You’ve got a friend in me. etc etc
Today’s hair! Courtesy of my mother. I had a lot of work to do today so I wanted it out of my face. The best part about braids means tomorrow is mermaid hair! Yay! Every time I put a ribbon in my hair I think of Violet Baudelaire, today especially so.
Is that an official X-men logo? Why yes I believe it is…
im so glad
For those of you who criticize Janelle’s signature monochromatic look.
From her speech on “Black Girls Rock”:
“When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.
This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.
Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” - Janelle Monáe
