Searching For Satisfaction

Posts Tagged ‘transition

Time to start packing...

I started blogging here: Confessions of a Grad School Slave

I moved over here when my grad school blog didn’t fit anymore: Searching For Satisfaction

Then I did the WordPress migration: Black Girl Unlost

And now I’m excited to announce that I’m taking the next step – moving Black Girl Unlost to its own domain!

I am super duper psyched for this move. I didn’t know I could do it, but I made it happen and I can’t wait for you to join me on the new site.

#shoutout to my hosting company – Versatile Media Group! Much thanks to @jasonlanderson for all the help & support in making this dream of mine happen.

Be on the lookout for the official launch this week!


I started this iteration of the blog way back in 2007. Last year I transitioned from Blogger to And now I’m ready to make another change to the blog.

In January 2011 I’m moving Searching For Satisfaction to its own domain & hosting my site via a shared server. The time has come for me to take this blog off a hosted blogging platform like Blogger or, and really start making it what I want it to be.

I want to see this space transition to a destination for intelligent thought-provoking discussion. We gon be grown & talk about grown folks stuff, but still keep it classy. And I’ll continue to discuss what’s going on in my world, as well as give my thoughts on whatever random topics or events catch my eye. I want it to be a community where folks can interact & share their views & learn something new from like-minded folks.

I hope that everyone who has been reading so far continues along with me as I & Searching For Satisfaction transitions to the next phase. Thanks for reading!

I’m still going strong, in my 4th month of my transition. I love my little coilys. I can’t wait to have all natural hair. I flatironed for the first time a few weeks ago, and my hair got really straight. I didn’t use a heat protectant (bad girl I know) but I will next time, when I do my length update at the end of June.

I’ve been kicking around several ideas for my big chop (BC). One part of me wants to get to natural hair ASAP, and also explore having really short hair for the first time in my life. The other part of me is scared that I will look crazy with really short hair (I truly believe that every woman cannot pull off the short hair) and I will just end up covering it with wigs and whatnot.

So here are the ideas I have:

*BC completely on my birthday (7/6) and start my 27th year of life with a new look and a new me.

*Keep all my length and do the BC on my 1 year transition anniversary (11/29) – I’ll have more natural length then.

*Do a mini-chop and go from almost BSL to SL on my birthday, and then BC on 11/29.

Right now I keep flip-flopping between those 3 options…I’m not in a rush to make a decision right now though.

I’ve been really wanting twists, so I started looking around and of course I couldn’t find anyone in Orlando who I trusted enough to do them, so I’m going to do them myself. I’ve been practicing on my hair, and I’ve gotten the hang of it. So next week I’m going to just sit in my apartment and twist up my hair. I’m not planning to make the sections super small, so hopefully it won’t take me longer than a day to get it done. I will post pics when I’m finished. I plan to keep in twists until my birthday, just taking them down and redoing them as needed. If they work out well I may just stay in twists until my decided BC date (whenever that is).

Tonight I’m going to henna using the CurlyNikki method. Last night I got some Karishma Herbal Henna from a local Indian grocer ($2.99 a pack, yay!). Following CurlyNikki’s method, I’m going to mix up my henna with green tea and a little oil, apply it to clarified hair tonight, and sleep in it. I’m thinking its gonna be in my hair for about 12 hours before I rinse, DC and style. I’m planning to just blowdry my hair on cool tomorrow. Rollersetting makes my relaxed hair too thin w/ no volume, and airdrying leaves my ends kinda crunchy, so we’re gonna try the blowdryer on cool…and yes, I will use a heat protectant this time.
