Got in touch with “da homie” D’Angela shortly after this post published and “we cool.” (ha!) Ain’t nobody tripping off me and my political commentaries. We reconnected on Facebook and although we don’t talk regularly (like most of my good friends) we are back in the loop and have no doubt, we will pick right back up where we left off (as I do with all my real homies) whenever life slows down enough to have the time to give undivided attention to one another.
She is still on her natural hair journey, too. Wooo Hooo! And, I still have her black stilettos. I’m working hard now so as to create the life that will allow me the TIME to spend with my old and new friends and pour into their lives and be a blessing. I’m nearing my destination of financial freedom which equals more disposable TIME to use as I please.
Enjoy the video….
This is another oldie but goodie–circa 2011 when my old roommate and friend was embarking on the experience of returning to her natural texture. This experiment unfortunately did not last with she and I. I have some of the footage of us trying things out but it didn’t turn out well enough where either of us was comfy publishing it. I also lost touch with her–again, also. I can’t find her on FB–plus, I’ve change my page a couple of times since this taping also–it’s a wonder anyone can find me. LOL! Truth be told, I fear my political opinions got under her skin and she ditched me. LOL! 🙂
As she didn’t know how much of an non-Obama fan I was until reconnecting on FB and seeing some of my posts. I don’t know that for sure, of course. We never had that convo. All I know is, I reached out and she was no longer there. So I’m unsure if she continued the journey as I know she had some challenges shortly after recording this.
Regardless, I miss her and really enjoyed having her back in my life that brief period of time. She is such a delight. I like how we were vibing as we reconnected in this video. It was like old times–she makes me laugh. LOL at her advice to wives–“moo moo scarves.” I just love her feminine energy. She’s a great Godly mom and wife! In spite of all the question marks I just expressed (keeping it real) around our lost relationship, I published this because 1) to show how much of an advocate I’ve been for natural hair amid all my friends and family and to show how that can bring women together–even if for a short time. And 2) we both look cute. he he he……#imissmyfriend #whereareyouDeAngela? #Istillgotyourblackstilettos LOL!
