If you peaced out because you aren't into vacation posts, i'm back! It's me! Haha!
Maybe it's an ADD thing, but often times I wake up in the middle of the night with an idea and can't go back to sleep because I can't stop thinking about it. I literally keep a pen and paper by my bed so I can wake up and write down what i'm thinking about so I can let it go and go to sleep! Some of those ideas are blog post ideas! They are all just stacked up into my drafts, usually with just a title and nothing else.
This is one I have been thinking about for a while because everyone always asks me how I did my braids! I'm not an expert at all, but I can successful fishtail, dutch braid, french braid, etc etc etc on my own head. This is kind of a miracle for me, I realize as I am writing for an education blog that focuses on developmental disorders that I don't have very good fine motor skills. My fingers...don't work. I constantly am dropping things, messing things up, I even type real weird. My handwriting is horrible, another classic sign. So by all definition I shouldn't be able to braid! But I can!
I realized most of braiding is getting the movements right, and I figured out that I could braid way better without a mirror than I can with one!
I started learning with a dutch french braid. The strands have to go under each other instead of on top. Once I stopped looking at my movements in the mirror and did it by how it felt, my braids were perfect!
That was a few years ago and to this day, I can't braid looking in a mirror!
So if you struggle with braiding, try that!
Also, I was supposed to have a vlog for today but I failed. Wah wah. Hopefully it can get made before next week!
Hey! My name is Riley Jo. I have been living off Dr. pepper and a prayer since 1991. My life motto is one that Joey Gladstone taught me on Full House... make fun of yourself before anyone else has a chance to do it first! That's my goal here. Thanks for stopping by!
