I'm from Finland and I turn 25 this June. I joined the old forums in 2013 just before my dreads were created. I mostly just lurked around there because of the bugginess (and because I'm super awkward socially and have major anxiety when writing to strangers).
I used to study furniture and building restoration but I kept having joint pains so I changed to graphic design. I like painting, doing all kinds of handcrafts and watching birds. I'm also saving money to get better equipment to photograph birdies.
Welcome tangerina, nice to have another Finnish member of the community! You've probably seen Ida around on the site if you've been lurking - looks like you both live in a very beautiful country from what I've seen.
If you have your art and/or photography online anywhere, feel free to share.
Hey, everyone. I'm here thanks to Lazydreads and his awesome videos.
I'm 34 and live in Westport, WA. I have a 4 year old girl and spend my days either working, creating, or studying. I'm currently working as a housekeeper and on-call sandwich maker/bar wench at a local pub here in Westport. I'm studying to become a programmer for financial and lazy reasons.
I am indifferent about chocolate as long as it ends up in my mouth.
FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
