Check it Out!

WEll my lovlies, it's Friday...Woop Woop!!! It is the day of pay and I couldn't be any happier. Things are really working out over here. Except for my little friend who came to visit today.

Been listening to new music lately, and I'm really feeling these three songs.

Tierra Marie Ft. Pleasure P- Hung 4 You

Always liked Tierra Marie. She came out at the same time as Rihanna, but didn't quite get the love she she goes again though, and i like it :)

But speaking of Rihanna, who insist on calling herself ReRe, she has a new song as well.

Rihanna- Emergency Room

This song is crazzzzyyy cool. the lyrics actually make me laugh, luvs it :)

but throwing a guy into the mix, I really appreciate Ryan Leslie, and this song is hot

Ryan Leslie- How It Was Suppose to Be

Besides the songs, last night I saw


I ♥ it!!! It was so funny, sad, inspiring, and real. I recommend it 110%.
I walked out the movie theartre a bit upset though. The ignorance that resides in the world is heartbreaking. Him and Pac could have been even more great than they already were.

It's okay though becausee....

the mystery guy was there to save the day, he was good movie company

Hope you guys enjoy Super Bowl Weekend, WOOP WOOP!!!!

Who are you cheering for?

A Crazy Kinda Week

Well my lovelies...I'm bacckk!!!!

Its been a very long week, and its only Wed morning. Here's what's new.
Although I've made the decision to take a semester off from Temple, I've also decided to take a few classes at a local college in NYC. Although it was a chore getting in, I was able to as a result of my Uncle teaching there. It's only two classes,business management and a philosophy. However, taking those two, I will be able to take a few in the summer, and then finish up my last semester at TU in the fall :) that worked out nicely.

I received a better job opportunity, full time, but with school I wasn't sure if I would be able to do it. It's right up my alley in the communications field. Hopefully its still something I can get into.

Besides that stuff, just happy that things are working out. Now that I'm settled at work and school is in order, I can start on my special project :)

Off to your blogs I go. I've got some catching up to do :)

Random: Pt. I Lost Count

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

This was the quote I used the other day by Dr. King. I never really got into why it speaks to me, but it really does.

Since the last semester ended, I have been doing everything in my power to get back into school. However, that wasn't working out so I took a leap of faith and decided to stay home hoping everything would work out okay. So far, a lot of positives have happened. They are still in the process of going through, and if they do happen for me, I will be sure to tell you all about it.

I was watching my favorite Sunday evening show again, its my little time I have to connect with the man upstairs, and that message was also a good one.

His topic this week was personal happiness, and here are a few quotes I like from that one:

-No person can take your joy, you have to give it away

-Never pray for god to change somebody else, ask for ya self.

-You've got to be determined to enjoy your life.

-When u allow what someone says to offend u, you're giving away your power.

-Accept the fact that no matter what you do, somebody won't be at peace with you

-You are an eagle. Don't waste your time fighting with crows. Just rise to an altitude the can't. iight, iight lol

The nexr time u have an opportunity to be offended, think of it as an opportunity to develop your character

Good stuff huh?!

On to the random! Yesterday I was getting on the train and this little kid was having a conversation with him mom, the cutest experience ever.

Kid: mommy I wish Obama was my daddy.

Mom: me to

Kid: really mommy, I love Obama.

Now that's something right there :-)

Seems a lot of movies are out right now right?! For some reason I find myself wanting to see all the chic flicks, which are totally making a comeback, might I add. I saw

Luvs its. I've always liked Anne and Kate. Anne in




and Kate in


Looking forward to seeing




"He's Just Not That Into You," also happens to be a book, did ya know?
I got the book about 4 yrs ago, and lemme tell you guys, its da truth. I suggest it to any of you.

Well so long...& enjoy your Sunday. I have a date to see the Biggie movie :)

You Must Not Know Bout Me

Alrighty guys. I had a really cool post for you all, but you know shit happens so I feel the need to share this instead.

Like I've said, I'm taking the semester off at Temple and found someone to take over my room in my apartment. The ad I put up said the rent would be 650 furnished, and the person would be able to move in and start paying rent in Feb since I already payed the rent for January.

Found someone and she agreed to all the terms. The rent is really 600 but I added on 50 dollars for my furniture. I guess my whack ass roommate informed her that it's really 600 so now home girl decides to only deposit 1,200 into my account oppose to 1,300. When I asked her why, she said she thought the rent was 600.

1st WTF moment.

How could you think that? The post said 650, I told you 650, and you agreed to it. Then she goes, "well I thought the 50 dollars was for the furniture." So I straight up told her, "look! it's 650, what are you going to do? This is the way I wanted to rent my apartment and if you don't like it you have plenty of time to leave. You pretty much agreed on a price with me, moved into my house, decided what you wanted to pay, and then dictated that to me."


So i text her at like 1am-my bad- and said I would be coming to get my stuff tomorrow morning at 9am. Sorry abut the inconvenience but it's the only time my parents could make to come and if I don't get to come tomorrow, I don't know when I will be able to get my things.

This bitch tells me, "you can get your things, but I will be asleep. It's inconsiderate for you to come at 9 in the morning. All of your stuff is packed up in the living room" In other words, you can't come in the room.

Yea, she must have fell and bumped her head.

I have payed the rent, cable, and lights for January which is still not over, and she is living it out for free, still didn't deposit her extra 50 dollars, and she is telling me that she can't wake up for 5 mins to have me inspect the room and sign the agreement.

I swear, if I was some kind of hood bitch she would be getting her ass kicked tomorrow morning at 9:00AM sharp. Now my mom is all upset about it and is really like, we have no problem giving her her money back and finding someone else because shit is ridiculous.

Don't even know why she made a big deal about it because regardless, I'm gonna do what I have to do tomorrow.

Breaking News!!!!

The Bestie has been found


& everything is A-Okay

Oh Where Oh Where Could My PYT Be!

Alrighty my BFF has gone MIA. Seriously, it's the weirdest thing. We talk everyday and its been three days since the last time we spoke. Worst part, I've called, texted, FB her, and no response. Not like her at all, its got me feeling like somethings wrong :-/

If I don't get a response by noon 2day, A.M. Is on the case.

Have you seen P.Y.T.?

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

These words couldn't be anymore true. With so much that has been going on in my life, highlighting these words for me is very important. Dr King was truly a great man with an influencial mind, heart and spirit.

Don't feel like blogging much today, but I felt it imperitive to do this :)

Everyday is Like Sunday

Today is turning into a pretty good day guys.

For one, let me start off by welcoming my new baby cousin into the world...YAY!!! My favorite aunt just had her 4th child last night and I'm sooooo super excited. I love him already :-). He's all the way in Guyana though so I don't know when I will be able to meet him. Probably not until the end of the year. :/ She has made an attempt to pick out a name for him, but we all think its whack, so hopefully she finds something better. Pictures coming soon ;)

On to the next, the birds are at war and these birds


wooped that Eagle ass. Woop woop!!! Soooo excited. I'm a sore loser okay, and since the Eagles took my Giants out last week, I'm all about revenge. In my book, I could care less who wins the Super Bowl, cause it ain't gonna be my team BUT guess what? It won't be the Eagles either hahhahah. K I'm done. What else.

I'm seeing someone.

Nah, you guys don't get more information than that lol...maybe later.

Just got in from work, gonna wrap my day up with some cleaning, laundry, and research for my special project. Be sure to share that with you guys soon as well.
Hope your Sunday is going as well as mine :-)

A Grown Up Kinda Day

So my day yesterday went went well. I wrapped everything up and went back to my house in an attempt to hide out from the 6 degree NYC weather. I swear, I think my brain is frozen, I hate it.I've always been a summer girl, so I'm officially starting my countdown to summer and their is only 4 months to go in my book.

I accomplished a good 99 percent of the things I wanted to do yesterday though, so that's good. The girl actually liked the apartment so now I don't have to worry about that anymore, just getting into school, which gives me extremely heavy boots.

I met up with my bff like I said I would, and it was nice catching up. Her newly married life has kept her kind of busy and we don't ever see each other anymore. So, over extremely cheap Thai food we had lunch and caught up. It was pretty good. We made a promise to try and do something together at least once per month :-)

Well my lovelies. I think I will wrap this up now. I'm out and about in the freezing ass city again, you think I would have learned my lesson from yesterday.

What are your plans for this weekend?

Some Kind of Friday

ello my lovely bloggers and blogettes. Its the weeeekend, but yet a busy as hell friday. A few updates on life?

I faced everything that was bothering me head on and was able to figure somethings out.

For school, I spoke with my uncle and he said I should pick some classes out that will be transferable back to Temple, and go to the school here in NYC and try to register as soon as possible. He says if I have any problems with that process, just give him a call :-)

Another problem was finding someone to replace me at my apartment in philly. My half of the rent is 600 and I surely don't wanna be paying that while I'm living in NY, that makes no sense. Luckily, my roommate is okay with it. I put a post up on creighlist's, a sophomore responded, and she's going to see the house today. Let's cross our fingers that she likes it because I really don't want to be paying rent there in february.

Hopefully if this alll works out, I will be able to save an extra 800 dollars every month until Sept which would be AWESOME!!!

Besides that stuff, today is pay day. Woop Woop. And even though a cool 90 percent of my check is going to bills, I'm still thankful that I will be able to pay it.

To all my blogging homies out there with kids- ya'll get MAJOR props for doing such an awesome job. I don't know how you guys do it. Its such a struggle taking care of myself while trying to finance my life and school, getting help from my parents. You guys inspire me.

So off to bill paying I go. I'm actually meeting up with one of my BFFs today as well. Haven't seen her since my birthday in sept, so it should be nice.

Lots more to share, believe it or not. Soooooo... I'll be back :-)

...when something scares me, I run and hide from it. That way I don't have to deal with the pressure and possibility of failure.

The Desire!

God will never give you the desire with out the ability.

I love how all my quotes are coming into use. So remember I told you guys I had important news to share with my mom. Well I told her.

As you guys know, I attend Temple U in Philly. My financial aid from last year SUCKED. Therefore, fall semester my bill got out of hand. I still owe my school that money. So in order to go back this semester, I would have to pay that obscene amount off and then still have to pay the same thing for Spring semester. so...

I decided to take the semester off :(

God knows it's something I don't want to do, because I LOVE school. However, since I live in NYC I was thinking during the months off while I get my bill together, there is lots of things I could do. Like find an internship, work on my writing, and work on a SPECIAL PROJECT :) , tell you guys more about that later.

But like I said, "God will never give you the desire without the ability," and luckily he has given me the ability to be resourceful. My Uncle is a professor at a CUNY here in NY. So instead of going back to Temple this semester, hopefully I can take classes at his college, save myself about $8,000, and not have to take the semester off. I would be in NY and able to still do an internship and work.

I'm so excited that things SEEEEM to be working out. Those of you who believe in prayer, please say one for me. I'd appreciate it. I really want to do my thing, and be done with school. It's sad that in our society today, a person can't even go to school when they want to...

Keep Your Fingers Crossed Guys

Cause I'm Dreamin' Pt.3

The weekend is finally over, and its time to get back to the business of the week. Just worked this weekend. Changed my hair color to black cause the brown has been boring me lately. Watched my Giants get there ass kicked by the whackass eagles which is very heartbreaking.All of my teams are officially out, so there goes my football season, a big effin" flop. Besides that stuff I've been dreaming a lot, AGAIN, lately. Last night I seriously had 3 dreams in a row.

The first, summed up, dealt with nail polish. In my dream, my job had a spa. My manager went to the spa and wanted to use this nude nail polish, couldn't find it, and asked around, "does anyone know where the polish went?" Just then my co worker volunteers that she saw me STEAL the polish, so my boss gives me a write up. However, it was obvious in my dream that she was lying but she's a co worker I actually like. I was all crying and stuff because I knew I didn't steal the polish. Weird dream.

Meaning of Dream

Couldn't find it :/
Then I drempt that I was pregnant, which also made me sad. I had this big ass belly...ugh. It was gross. And not to sound ignorant like pregnancy is disgusting, because then I would be a dumb ass. I just feel like, their is a right time for everything, and its not MY time for that yet.

Meaning of Dream

To dream that you are pregnant, symbolizes an aspect of yourself or some aspect of your personal life that is growing and developing. You may not be ready to talk about it or act on it. This may also represent the birth of a new idea, direction, project or goal.

After that....hehe...I continued to dream that I was heavily laying the smooches on this guy, the one who got me "Grover Goes to School,"my favorite childhood book, for christmas. was really intimate too.

Meaning of Dream

To dream of a kiss, denotes love, affection, tranquility, harmony, and contentment.
So at the end of the day, we are left with stealing, pregnancy, and sexxy kisses.

What ya"ll think? :)

When I Grow Up...

I wanna be just like this lady right there...


Queen Gorgo of Sparta

YO she is one bad bitch. My best friend and I were watching 300 tonight, one of our favorite movies, and we always adore her. Talk about a WOMAN. Her man respected her, her country respected her, and she did what she had to do. She was cut throat in some parts,

Now that's a woman, GOT HIM!!!

& the beginning when she gave her husband the nod to be done with the Persian messenger...yea, I love her. hehe

But besides that, we just did a bunch of running around today. We went to my BFF's job, got some Thai food, bought some stuff from Club Monaco, and ventured home to play



Besides the windy ass NYC weather, we had a pretty good time.
Today Was a Good Day!!!

Random Pt....I've lost count!

The last two days have been really slow over here in me. Therefore, there is nothing eventful to report on. The most exciting thing that happened to me, or lack of was missing out on buying a pink jewelry box at my store which was on sale for 9.00 from 125.00...oh that made me upset.

Today was a day off so I just chilled with my BFF, we're having another one of our sleep overs :-) She is the primary reason I love being home from school.

There are some SERIOUS decisions I've made though but I figure I'll share it with my mom before getting on here and PSAing it. Hopefully she takes it well.

Other than that, just happy to be having a productive New Year thus far and SUPER EXCITED that my Sissy is back, ♥ her.

Oh yea, if you guys haven't heard this song by Bey, check it out it's called


♥ it. It's so mushy and she even mentions the hubby's name in it. That's a change huh? Just enjoying my new found ability to listen to Sad or mushy love songs and smillleee.

& so It goes...

So I didn't think I would be using those quotes I posted two days ago this quickly, but here I go. It's officially confirmed. Yes homey is in a relationship and that's that. Sure as hell not gonna spend MORE time of my life chasing after another man, wonder what if, how, when, all that stuff. The bottom line is, "when someone leaves your life they are no longer a part of your destiny," & he is no longer apart of mine. In fact I'm super proud of myself for just asking and now I know for sure.

Besides that...
Just chillin' with my besty, she always makes me feel better.

you guys ever heard this song?

& So It Goes

What I'm currently jamming to. Although it's sad, it always makes me feel better.

Dispite this MINOR set back...2009 is still jamming and I'm still looking forward to it.

This is My Time!


I found out that "the crush" may actually have a girlfriend. Notice how that crush went into quotes right? If I feel like I am being wronged, my feelings for a person will severely change. Because of this, he may be put on the "People Not Making it into 2009" list. Sure he may have had a few days, but it's never too late for him to get on there. But I've decided it's just best to ask and be sure.

I think it's important for me to speak up. I am not a little girl, I have to take hold of my own life.

I was listening to this preacher tonight on t.v. and he was speaking the truth. Here are a few things he said that spoke to me:

- The people who walk out of your life, let them go. Your destiny is not tied to the people who walk away.

- Too many people are trying to ride a dead horse, dismount.

- Don't try to get people to stay in your life, you're only delaying the inevitable.

- When someone leaves your life, they are no longer a part of your destiny.

- God will give you people who are FOR you not WITH you.

- God will always bring the right people into your life but you gotta let go of the wrong ones to make room for the right ones.

- You don't need people in your life who are enabling a dysfunction.

- You don't need people to do things for you, you are equip

- God will never give you the desire with out the ability.

- Me and God are a majority

He just made me feel so much better. About past situations and about this particular one. I'm able to know that, It's okay to let go of things and with the present situation, if it doesn't go how I would have liked, i can let go of that too.

In addition, i don't need anyone to do anything for me. I GOT It. Like the preacher said, "God will never give you the desire with out the ability."

I feel better already.

Crush On You

"It's cool, not tryin to put a rush on you
I had to let you know that I got a crush on you."

So ladies and gents, I've got a crush. HAHAHAHA. That's exactly how I feel about it...really smiley. Tryna keep it under wraps though. It's someone I dated in the past for a VERY short period of time. Things kinda fizzled out, don't know why, but I've realized that I still like him.

The problem is, I don't know if he may still feel the same. We still talk on the phone, flirt with each other, and our conversations are sooo stress free, funny, and just a good time. But I dunno.

I really want to put myself out there, but then again I don't. I guess this goes back to my new year's resolution of being more Aggressive.

So right now where we stand is, I like him, don't know if he still sees me that way. I feel like I use to have control of the situation but now I don't any more. Any advice guys and girls

...& In With The New (2009)

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

This quote really speaks to me, and is exactly how I'm starting my New Year off. This year I'm ready to take all of the opportunities life presents to me. Opportunity for growth, wealth, happiness, love, whatever...I'm paying attention.

I didn't really make any resolutions because I figured, what's the point. I'm not going to make trivial promises to myself like,"I'm not going to curse anymore" or "I'm going to forget about him." It just ain't gonna happen.

So I've decide to be more abstract. This year I can only hope to be a bit more diligent, a lot less superficial, a lot more conscious, and a tad bit AGGRESSIVE. I strongly believe with all of these combined, I can sort of ease out of the troubles I had last year and make my life a much more fulfilling one. I'll be sure to inform you guys on when these particular "state of minds", if you could call them that, come into play.

So here's to a better you and a better me in...
