Abort Mission: Shutting Down Operation Chunky Challenge

Okay guys, I couldn't do it anymore. I failed miserably at Operation Chunky Challenge. I just... I can't do it anymore. Maybe I'm just not cut out for chunky braids. I wanted so badly to be about that life, but I looked and felt crazy walking around with those things in. At this point in the year, I have tons of meetings, and people to see, and I just felt that walking around with chunky, fuzzy braids wasn't a good representation of myself professionally, or my program.

This is by no means a slight to natural hair in the workplace, and I will address why in a post soon. This was simply me acknowledging that there are things I will and will not do with my natural hair. I may be able to revisit chunky braids, or even graduate on to chunky flat-twists once I have more curly and less heat-damaged hair. But for now, I'm waving that white flag. I'm sorry ya'll.

I'm gonna miss the dope braidouts on the weekends, though.
