It's Been A While...

Long time no see.

This is the first time i’ve stood in front of the camera since September, so I apologise if I’m a little rustier than usual. So it’s been many months since I last uploaded anything here, and even longer since I actually filmed something, so I figured an update was in order.

So, what’s happened over the course of the last 4 to 5 months, well, not a lot - Oh, aside from: things caught up with me - the stresses that I’d refused to face had slowly developed into anxieties and depression… eventually I got to the point where I could no longer ignore what was going on… but y’know, not before I’d run from my friendships, sunk my relationship, been buried by my education and run from blogging - “oh”.

I had a lot things to work through, and things got worse before they got better: I took a hiatus from working on Lazy Dreads, I took a hiatus from my photography and I took a hiatus from degree so that I could concentrate on getting help and getting better.

So… that’s all a little down beat isn’t it? The positive I’ve been able to draw from this experience is that even though it may have felt like my whole life was falling to pieces, I was able to decide which pieces I wanted to keep and rebuild on, and which I wanted to leave behind. I’ve started to face my anxieties and get help for my depression; I went out and I spent two days in The Netherlands, two weeks in Mexico and a month in Norway, I gutted my unhealthy diet: I no longer buy dairy and I haven’t eaten meat since I quit blogging… and so far I’ve lost 20kg, I got a job, I got accepted onto a course that I actually want to study, I’ve begun to mend what I broke… oh, and as you can see… I’m making some videos.

I can’t say exactly what my plans for Lazy Dreads are… because I don’t yet know myself… I’ve just planned that I’ll have plans! I will be making videos… which videos I continue to make, which ones I leave behind and which new ones I add, I’m not yet sure - but I’d be very much open to suggestions, so leave me a comment below if there’s something you’d like to see from me and this channel.

For now, I think that’s all I’ve got to say! likes comments and shares are always appreciated, let me know what you’d like to see from me in the comments… and now I’ve got to get back to working my way through 4 months of unanswered emails. Farewell!


  1. Welcome back. Im glad to see your taking care of yourself. I got dreads when I started to finally take control of my depression and use them as a daily reminder that if i can bear this mess, i can bear almost anything. For the future some time i was wondering if you have any tips on keeping camping with dreads and if you know if they're is a diffrence on how African dreads look as they mature aside from Caucasian

  2. Good to see you back and glad to hear your faceing your demons good luck with your future indevers and hopefully more vid's as they have helped me on my own dreads, but all that aside glad your ok and back on top ����
