Happy 21st Birthday 2 da Ultimate Blogger Karrie B.

So as I rush out the door for work, I actually feel like this is needed. Ya know, me wishing da Karrie B. a happy ass birthday!!!!

She's the one who truly inspired me to get a blog started because it seemed like such a wondferul way to vent & be kept entertained at the same time. Reading her blog let's me know that we all do go through the same things and therefore helps to keep me a little less stressed about life and it's craziness.

So thank you KB UR the best &

U Guys Know That Ice Cube Song, "Today Was a Good Day"...

Quite the contrary over here in Bk. Today was the worst. I don't know if it's just me PMSing or it's just this temper I sometimes have, but today just pissed me off.

For the most part I would say it was credited to my bestfriends. I have this saying, "don't let people take control of your emotions" but it usually applies to guys and I didn't think I would have to use it on my bestfriends.

Two of my bestfriends really hurt me this weekend. One more than the other. I love them so I really don't want to put them on blast but this i do have to say...

Everyone knows I'm a planner, don't stand me up. When you do that you throw off my entire day. In addition, it's selfish to just string someone along and then never show. I wasted my entire Sunday-today- for this very same reason.

Next, if we're bestfriends you're suppose to have my back...not drop me for the crew. Don't make special plans with me and then not give a damn about me leaving me out in the cold. I would never do it to you because friends stick up for each other and don't shun their friends.

Besides that stuff, I'm a Temple Girl...Go OWLLLSSS OUCH!!!!


this is my favorite Temple T-shirt.

I was cleaning my house tonight & this is what it currently looks like...


Aww man...I know it's not a big deal, but I really liked it-being pink and all. I guess I'm just extra upset about it because it's been an upsetting day.

So to wrap it up I guess I'ma just mark it as...

Just 1 of them days!!!

Train Tales Pt.2- More Postive Thinking!

Guys I swear I might just need to write a book on the train this summer or something because the postive thinking I do on there is amazing. Let's call this postive thinking on the train pt.2

As some of you may know, I just got out of a 3 yr on and off relationship. Of course I was super attached for quite a few reasons. I've spent my entire college career thus far in a relationship, he's been my 1st for so many things, I have an awesome relationship with his family, the list goes on. I usta think, I'll never get over it,how will i ever find the right one for me, OMG i know he's the one why can't he see it. But then..I've realized I am gonna be alright. It kinda shocks me. I'm almost sad at times of how well I seem to be doing alone...well not alone any more (hehe) but w/o him. Before I would cry, be upset, talk about him all day long, hope to get back together. Now, I can honestly say that doesn't happen. I smile when I think of how much I'm getting over him, how much I'm never stressed any more, how I've been gaining weight this summer & my booty is kinda offically back LMAO. I love it.

& I love him. I don't think that will ever change. Think I'm being a sucker? Nah, I'm not. Because of ( can't give him that much credit) because of the relationship, I am so much smarter, a little bit better equip to deal with men, love, letting go, and moving on.

Train Tales Pt.1 -I'm a flirt...

So this is the positive thinking I've been doing lately all because of the 2 train again. Usually when I'm on my way home on the train, I look at people and try to observe them, especially women. Younger women around my age even venturing into late 20's never have wedding bands. However, older women let's say 40ish and older, 95% of the time always do.

Therefore the way I see it is, I'ma be okay. 1 day I'm gonna find the right person for me. But as for now, I'm 20 and I really should just be enjoying myself HARD. & trust me I do. My co-workers are always like, "how many people are you dating...damn." It's kinda funny.

So in honor of my new ambition, here goes a song for ya'll:

Ima Flirt - Various Artists

Remember people, Photobucket hehe.

so at the end of the day, I'm a Flirt!!!

Happy Birthday 2 my Rapping Lawyer

Well let's start things off by giving a shout out to Mickey Factz- my Rapping Lawyer.


Today's his birthday. Yep!
Happy Birthday my dear. Damn all these Cancers in my life, I love them. He turns "23" today. SIKE!!! U gettin' up there man.

Let's see what's the story behind him. We met a year and a half ago at one of his shows, no I'm no groupie he's a friend of a friend. Every since then we've been cool. I've always liked him but it never seems to work out due to previous situations. He's a real cool kinda guy though.

Besides being cool, he's an awesome rapper. BTW, if it's coming from me, you guys know it must be true. I'm always, bumpin' his music. So feel free to check him out at

&&&&&&&&....Here goes one of my favorite songs by him for your listening pleasures.

Randomness Pt. 1

These are things I've been wanting to mention for the last two days but haven't in honor of my girlfriends and their B-days. This may be the most random post you've ever read because the topics are all over the place. Let's start with the train.

I take the train to work everyday and these are a few things I've noticed. People have no effin' manners. Yesterday this pregnant lady was on the Q train with me, and all these men just sat their asses down and didn't even get up for her. Then.....this one guy finally noticed her and gave up his seat. He deserves a pat on the shoulder.

2nd thing about the train. I take the 2.


At nights when I'm coming home from work I always try to stand in front of white people who are sitting down LOL. Isn't that sad. But trust me, their is good logic behind it. Most of them get off at the stops Brooklyn Museum and Grand Army Plaza; you know the prettiful neighborhoods. So They get off first, and I plop my ass down in their seats until I get to what's almost the last stop on the train..hehe.

On to the next. I've still been looking at cute doggies around NYC. I usually see tons but I'm often at work and can't just pull out my phone and snap a picture. Yesterday I was at the Bank and this thing was in there:


so I know this is mean, but he wasn't a cute one. Hence, the blurry pic. I didn't even wanna ask the owner if I could take a pic of him.

Even more randomness. I lost my wallet the other day. You know whhhhhyyyyy???? Because of this here:

I really wanted some milk 2 nights ago so I stopped at the corner store around my house to get some. This was the last place I used my wallet and I still can't find it. Then yesterday morning I had some milk before I left for work, got home at 6 and apparently I'd left the fridge slightly ajar. Soo...the shit got spoiled anyway. Awww man!!! What a waste of my time. at least I drunk 1/2 of it.

more randomness...Speaking of "awww man," I've been saying it a lot lately, it's even driving me crazy. Don't know where I got that one from. I think my boss probably says it & I notice I've been talking a lot like her too. I don't know if it's because I admire the person she is. Hmmm...

& to top it all off, biggest random of all. I've been looking at women's boobs lol. Seriously!!! When I'm at work, my co-worker, a guy, him and I pick them out. He is always like, "I swear you got some sugar in your tank," but I swear it's nothing like that. Boobs are just pretty hehe.

What's been your random deal lately?

Happy 21st Birthday to the homie Portia N.

Happy 21st. Birthday 2 the Homie Portia N.


So we met 3 years ago freshman yr of college. Thought you were cool but we never chilled that much until Tea parties came around; we really need to start those again. You were from D.C. I was from NY so I guess there was lots to learn about each other. You left, came back, and that's when our friendship really popped off. It was nice having someone to talk to, discuss with, advice from, and talk about how much CHC sucked. Trips together, weekends at not so cool parties, and planning more trips together I've realized're a cool kinda girl.

That's why on today-your 21st birthday- I wish you lots of happiness, prosperity, and drunken nights hehe.

Question Unanswered (Reposted)

So the last time I posted this, no one ever really came to my blog and I kinda really wanna know what people out there this is Questions Unanswered (reposted).

I tell you being a girl is tough business. So so much to go through. I think I'm finally ready to ask that question. So far this summer I've been going through a world wind of emotions. First I kinda lost the 1st guy I've ever seriously loved but I guess everyone has to go through that, so what made me think I could escape it. With that notion, I've been trying to look at things on the bright side because really him and I are just not meant to be. Not tryna play him in the least bit, but he's the most selfish person I've ever met. Which leads to my Questions Unanswered.

Can you love someone and not want to make the relationship work?

- I know people have different notions but I personally believe it's not possible. I'm an only child & I have been for all my life now. I am probably one of the most selfish people you will ever come across (no worries I'm working on it). I usually just think about me, what makes me happy, all that jazz. But with this guy, I was never like that. I loved him so much I put my selfishness aside. I put a lot of effort into the relationship. I planned everything, made all arrangements, all he had to do was show up and he could hardly do that. Puzzling part is, he goes around telling everyone he loves me and we just can't work because he can't give me what I need. Mind you, I like pretty things, but I like to get them for myself so that was never an issue. He meant emotionally. WTF! So I pose another question to you fine blogging folks...

If you really and truly love someone, wouldn't you WANT to give them what they want? At least that's how I felt about him. I was always there...

Now I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place-that is how the saying goes right?
I'm not so trusting of guys anymore, but I guess that's for the best. I swear everyone thinks they got game. But behind this mini essay I just wrote my questions really are:

-If you love someone, wouldn't you want to give them what the need?
- Can you love someone and not want to make the relationship work?

I swear I Just Wanna Have Fun

Really nothing to talk about lately. Works the usual, did some stuff this weekend, but can't post my pics because I lost my UPB cord. So, I may have to upload my pics to a CD. I swear what's the pt. of having a Sony.

On a brighter note, I saw the cutest doggy today check him out:

Doggy #2-Reggie


Isn't he adorably cute :) He was very sweet too. Just licked on my hands and tried to give me kisses.

Besides Reggie...tomorrw the co-workers and I were gonna go to the beach but it's gonna rain so that's a big no no. UGh, I swear I just wanna have some fun. Weekdays are soooooo boring. We shall see what comes of it all.

Any suggestions of NYC things to do?

A NYC kinda Independance Day

4th of July is finally here and I had mad plans that I'm not even feelin' anymore. Just not in the mood. A lot just pissed me off today. For example, no I still haven't gotten the blues (reference My Blue Shoes...Fri June 13th) back. I was determined to get them today because I had the perfect outfit planned in my head & that didn't happen ugh.

Had to go to work today but that was cool with me because time and a 1/2 always works. So on my way to work I saw the sweetest puppy on the train. I'm starting a Doggy album because I really want one but won't be able to get one until I graduate in a yr. Here goes the first doggy:

Doggy #1


Not really the type I'm looking for but nevertheless, he was still cute & he was sleeping awww...

Then.........I bumped into my gurl Opal in Old Navy> Haven't seen her in a really long time & guess what????



ahhhh mannn...doesn't she look niceeee..

After that it started raining in Soho, so I decided to catch rain drops in my mouth LOL. People were looking at me like, "look at the crazy black girl," but i didn't care because at the end of the day, it made me happy!!! :)

I've been blinded...

yep!!! I've been blinded, literally!!! This morning I woke up with the ill headache. I guess that's because I got home at 5 am-ish since I was hanging with that guy-gosh I've gotta find a blogger name for him :) We'll call him, "Mr. Perspective" :)

Anyway, like I was saying, i got out of bed this morning, head hurting like hell because everyone kept waking me up with texts, emails, phone calls, Black berry messenger, AIM..Damn, I'm too accessible. I finally decided to get out the bed since sleeping was obviously not an option, kneeled, and snap, this was the result...


I really snapped my glasses into 2. Swear, I almost cried. You guys don't understand the severity of the situation. I CAN'T SEE NADA W/O MY EXTRA EYES!!!

So now I have to find myself back to my eye doctor, get a new prescription, and spend mad money...ugh.

Needless to say today wasn't so much of a good one because I couldn't see a thing. But then I went to work and felt all better, know why????

Today was pay day!!! Can ya'll say woop woop with me. I got money In da bank!! hehe.

&&&&&&&....Mr. Perspective visited me at work today. Total surprise...awww man :) Cheeks are mad red right now.

Loving in Slow Motion...

So I've woken up with a big ass smile on my face today. I think it could be because I don't have to work today, it's nice and sunny outside...but mostly I think it just has to do with my last post from yesterday. I dunno man...Waking up to first thoughts of a person & thinking about them all the time, without being depressed, worried, or sad, is a great feeling...

Infact if I could choose a song which represents exactly how I feel it would be

Karina Pasian- Slow Motion

Don't you think loving in slow motion is best?

Oh I think I Like Him...

So there's this guy I've been seeing...for maybe about a month now, & oh I think I like him...It's crazy because I didn't expect 4 it to happen so so quickly. Hmph, I know he's not a rebound or anything because I've dated quite a few people since da break up...but this guy, yea he gets to me. He makes me blush and laugh. We have soooo much in common. I can totally be myself around him, you know the self that my friends and family know, and he's just really my type. He has a lot going for him & I like that. This is how you know I'm feeling him...I told my DAD about it. I never involve my parents unless I'm really feelin' it scares me a bit. Like I was telling my daddy, I don't know what to do because I never meant to feel this way. I told him I don't wanna get all caught up in my feelings and then get slapped in the face again, which is pretty much what happened the last time. & this is the advice i got....

You can't let your past experiences ruin your future ones. you obviously like this guy, because you're telling me about him. So go for it. You don't wanna be 70 thinking about what you could have or should have done. Don't be meek but live a little...

& I think that's exactly what I'm gonna do.
