Wow, since school started I've been slacken on my blogging. I just noticed I got tagged like 20 days ago by Jamofism (my bad for being so late.)

Here are the rules:

1) Link to the person that tagged you.

2) Post the rules on your blog.

3) Share 6 non-important/habits/quirks about yourself.

4) Tag 6 random people by posting links to their blogs.

5) Let each of them know they've been tagged.

Six things you should know about me....

1. My nickname should be Sleep and Eat because those are my two favorite things to do. Lately however I have been missing out on both. I haven't really been eating because it's Ramadan (the last day is tomorrow). Eid Mubarak to all my Muslim readers. Also because I now have two 12-hour shifts per week for nursing school, sleep has been really missed.

2. My favorite person in the world is not a person but my dog.... Big Poppa
3. I'm in my second quarter of nursing school or as I like to say I've completed 1/4 of the Third as the program is 3 years. The program is pretty competitive and out of over 800 applicants there are about 83 of us in the class.
Can you spot me? I'll give you a clue... Just look like for the black girl. Yeah I'm the only one.
4. My favorite channel is the Food Network, I often pass on going out so I can stay at home and watch. But I do love to cook complimenting my love for eating.
5. I hate school, but like I mentioned earlier I'm working on my second Masters degree. People's first response when they find out that I'm in school is "Damn, you must love school". Quite the contrary.
6. I'm what you call a professional wine taster... Sike. But I love wine and in my freetime I love to go to all the local wineries in the East Bay (SF Bay Area). I really fell like I have so much more to learn about wines and am willing to taste my way to a PHD lol.
Here's who I'm tagging...

Brunsli Hair Tie

I just placed my order for the Paua!!! Can't wait 'til I get it.

Nikki Giovanni

I love her!!!! She is so outspoken and bows down to no one. My idol. I went to see her last night at the Oakland Museum. My biggest take away was "Don't change who you are for anyone, be you!" One of my strongest beliefs!!! Check her out!

***** Hair Update*****

I had my installation follow-up appointment last Saturday. All is well. It took her an hour to retighten my hair, She recommended that I get my hair retightened every 5 weeks and it should only take 2 hours. I'm juiced about that.

I have yet to wash my hair, partly because I don't feel I need to (no smell, no itching or flaking) and partly because I have never been an advocate of frequent washing. My consultant told me that when I do decide to wash I don't have to band and braid as she doesn't anticipate any slippage. All I have to do is dilute my shampoo and spray it on my scalp and massage it in, then just rinses out in the shower. I don't anticipate washing it until right before my next retightening so I'll give an update on how it came out then.
