Random Quickies #1

superheroOne day I woke up and was tired of being the constant “victim”. The record playing in my head- reminding me of past hurts, well it never seemed to skip a beat. Always being that person who is mistreated is fucking exhausting- an unbearable burden. So now I’m going to be my own personal superhero. I’m rocking the hell out that red cape.

Cheers, homies!

Writing Quickies And Random Quickies

abc Starting in March I’ll be doing quick posts about writing, and all the other randomness that pops in my head. These posts will be hella short in length; like a sentence or two, or a paragraph. The Writing Quickies will be my honest thoughts about everything under the writing umbrella. From my thoughts on trying to finish the first draft of my book, to the little things I’m picking up from the writing resource books I’m checking out.

Random Quickies will just be posts of me sharing all kinds of randomness. I started these posts last year, but failed to keep up with them. So, this is my fresh start with being random, and quick!

Cheers, homies!

Zen Mode For 2017

peace I’ve learned plenty about myself this year. I care too much. I turn molehills into mountains. I care too much about what certain family members think. It’s time for me to start not giving a damn, and to ignore all the bullshit. My main goal for 2017 is to be in a Zen mode.

Cheers, homies!

Friends Mean Well

buds This post was supposed to go up tomorrow, but I have a dentist appointment and have decided to type this out tonight. I’ve been doing great with these Blogmas posts! I’m quite proud of myself. The following post is a fun one, and it shouldn’t be taken seriously. 😀 Enjoy!

Where would we be without great friends? Over the years the dynamics of a few of my friendships have changed. Calls, visits, and hangout dates have be reduced to friendships that are maintained only through social media these days. It’s sad, but that’s life for ya.

Thankfully, I have a handful of bossome buds left. One homie in particular is a woman named Wendy. Wendy is freaking dope! She’s incredibly selfless, kind, supportive, and hella funny. I think it’s important to have a good sense of humor in these hot mess times. My homie has so many awesome attributes, but she’s also freaking hardheaded!

Let me explain a few things.

My single status is infamous amongst my inner circle. 😀 I’ve done posts about this in the past, there’s no need to go into full details about that subject. LOL. Although Winter is coming, and a sista would love a warm body to hold… dating isn’t a massive priority for me currently. My plate is already filled with other life matters, and I’m not trying to deal with drama, or bullshit from some new source. A sista is just trying to stay sane, ya dig?

Wendy isn’t letting the bullshit of life stop her. In fact she has herself a new boo! I’m happy for Wen because she deserves it! Unfortunately for me Wendy wants to freaking play matchmaker, and I’m not having it! I’m not taking the bait.

When she mentioned hooking me up with a pal of her boyfriend’s, I was like thanks, but no thanks. Did I mention that Wen and I live in different states? So because of that fact I sure as hell didn’t want her to set me up. I can’t do the long-distance thing. I prefer to have my significant other close because… hell, my appetite is ravenous, and when I want it I want it! So, yeah.

I thought she understood, but noooooo! Her hardheaded behind apparently told her new boo anyway about setting me up which equally annoyed me, and made me crack up.

She means well.

Her heart is in the right place.

Once again I had to tell Wen that I wasn’t interested  in her setting me up.

Lord, she means well, but hellz no!

I’m hoping that she moves on to the next single friend on her list. 😀

Cheers, homies!

Ready For Fall

Fall  Summer can seriously kiss my ass because I’m so over it! These triple digit temperatures are cruel and unrelenting. The humidity has me wanting to repent at least every five seconds. And the bugs?! The bugs are total savages and belong in the darkest pits of hell. I’m an August baby, but I’ve never been fond of the summertime. In fact most Leos I know strongly hate the summer; a trait possibly inherited by our mothers who spent their last trimester suffering.

Fall is the most picturesque and gorgeous time of the year. Technically, Fall like temperatures doesn’t hit Texas until November, but whatever I’m still hyped. I love the way the leaves change colors, it’s so pretty. And feeling that cool, crisp air always puts a massive smile on my face. And who doesn’t love longer nights, and shorter days… I sure do!

Fall is such an amazing time to be creative. I plan to be very productive this Fall. I have all these new ideas for Fall themed stories. And during Fall is when all the great new novels are released. I can already see myself with a mug of Kahlua spiked hot chocolate, and a psychological thriller in my hands.

I pretty much wear Fall lipstick and nail colors year round, but it’s definitely even more special to rock those colors during my fav season. Rich wines, burgundies, deep purples, bold reds, I’m just ready to rock all those colors. As soon as the weather changes I’m busting out my boots, and turtlenecks, and it will be an amazing time. I live for my favorite pair of black boots.

The best candle scents come out for Fall. I’m ready to make a few candle purchases at Bath & Body Works, Target, and Wally-Mart. I love anything that has pumpkin waffles attached to it.

So what do you love about Fall? Let me know! Thanks for reading!

Cheers, homies!

Mourning A Friendship

graves I feel as if I’m in mourning and I’m not digging it. A few weeks ago I had a falling out with one of my best friends. I admit that I’m really hurt behind all this. Hecks, this situation is just another brick in the wall of bs that has been 2016 so far. You never realize how large a presence someone has in your life… until you’re no longer speaking. Now, we have done this dance before; we would get into a huge fight, and all will get worked out. Something tells me that this time the demise of our friendship is final. This is someone I talked to on a daily basis, and saw often. I communicated with him more than anyone, and now that we’re not speaking I’m really feeling the sting, as of late.

Because I’m all about holding on to loved ones, I tried to reach out to my bud, but never received a response. 2016 has been a fairly dramatic year; a lot of unpleasant things have been happening. He was one of the first ones I would turn to whenever I was dealing with anything. In my heart I know I tried to make things right, and because of that I have to move past the situation. I don’t think the friendship can be salvaged, but I hope so. If not maybe this ending will be the catalyst for a new beginning. In the meantime, life has to go on.

Cheers, homies.

Alternative Black Girl Tag

The Alternative Black Girl Tag was created by one of my fav YouTubers, RyMingTahn (pronounced Remington). The tag was started to celebrate the uniquely original black women of the world; the ones who are often overlooked. We are sistas who are free-spirited, rock wild hair colors, we tend to be unconventional, and listen to all genres of music. Of course there’s more to it than my description, but you get the idea. I may not have the “alternative” look, but I totally am someone who marches to the beat of my own drum. I don’t have a YouTube channel, so I decided to just post this tag on the blogy blog.

1. How did you know that you were different?

I’ve known I was different since I was five. I’ve always been into things that others weren’t. I just had this feeling that I wasn’t like everyone else.

2. Do people judge you?

In high school my “blackness” was questioned because I rocked Metallica shirts. Being judged now on my alternativeness isn’t so much of an issue.

3. What does your family think?

My immediate family don’t really care, but my distant relatives seem to think I’m odd.

4. How do you stay true to yourself?

I do whatever is in my heart to do. No matter what I have to be me.

5. Who and what inspires you?

Any individual who lives life on their own terms inspires me. I’m also heavily influenced by literature, music, art, spirituality, and philosophy. More than anything though the message of love from Jesus is inspiring; and I’m trying to love others the way he loves.

6. What does your significant other think?

I’m single now, but I’m sure my future mate would appreciate my uniqueness.

This was really fun to do. I hope RyMingTahn comes out with a part two. 🙂

Cheers, homies!
