    Back 2 Mahogany

    In 2010 I stepped into church only once. Sometimes I wonder if this is why I lack the patience, understanding, and satisfaction I do. I notice that I am inquisitive, analytical, and self-driven but perhaps those things are not enough. Am I making sense....? I guess, as I seek to understand this world and my purpose in it, I wonder if I am ignoring what God has already made so - CLEAR. What...

    Opposites Attract

    we come from two different planets our worlds collided in mmvi and we clasped together like refrigerator magnets your celestial body is calling you and i can hardly stand it my sphere is calling me and you can hardly stand it we are somehow managing *** either destiny or beelzebub has caught up to us how powerful is love? Long Story Short, I Got Baggage!

  3. ....I walked to my bus stop to learn I had walked to the wrong stop. Impatient, I walked to the right stop even though I had already missed the bus. Then, zooming past me is a bus that stops at the wrong stop I was initially at but still gets me to the right place. Hence the title of this post: My Lack of Patience Never Really Got Me Anywhere Faster. SLAP.... Perhaps I should apply this...

  4. So I really like NM called Here I Am ( song is posted in my blog titled Friends are Overrated…. ) and there is this line that really stuck out to me: It's a joke, it's a game, Why am I still keeping score? I'm in pain, I'm ashamed I'm a woman, hear me roar I typed it (the bold text above) in Google which led me to Wiki and it turns out it is from a song by a female 70s...

    Why We Hurt the Ones Closest to Us the Most

    Ever wondered why we hurt the ones closest to us the most? No? Let me rephrase that - ever wonder why the ones closest to us, hurt us the most? Crazy as it may sound, I believe it is all out of love. I have found that my partner is most "mean" when he sees that I am hurting. Backward right. But I realize that it is because he feels that he cannot help me and it pains him to see me hurt....

    "Beautiful Always Hurt"

    I dread having my eyebrows waxed – it hurts! The other day I mentioned this to the patrons in the nail shop as we socialized. When I got to the back, after lying down, Tina (the shop owner and manager), as a she begin to lay the warm wax over my brow said, “let me know if I hurt you. I don’t want to hurt you but I won’t know if I do.” I replied, “You know, I thinks it’s just...

    I Wasn't "Poor" Until They Told Me I Was!

    Leave it to someone else to always point out your dirty shoes! You know, I didn't know I was poor until someone else told me I was! And the first time someone pointed out that my shoes were busted was in 9th grade standing at the vending machines - I will and have never forgot that that incident. Within the next few weeks I requested my first pair of Jordans and that very person was right there...

    Girl Power

    There is just something about Pink Friday - I have never identified with an album this much! FUEL. What I have been going through lately has revolved around my intimate relationship with my partner, friendships, working relationships and dynamics, aspirations, and my future! Every track on Pink Friday has been meaningful to what is significant and stressing me! Every track has had relevance to...

    Tap into that Spirit

    Shortly before my brother died I told him he would come speak to my class one day. He told me “no,” and went on to say he was not the type of person I wanted to come speak to my class. That they, my students, would then 'think they could fuck up and it would be okay.' What he didn't understand and I did not have the words to say to him at the time was that he would be perfect! JD, you...

  10. Most people do not understand why I appreciate her artistry. It’s about time we had a female on top of the game! I admire that she is a strong woman that has overcome many obstacles in life and is doin’ the damn thang! There is a certain freedom about her style and expression …She appears to say what she wants and does not appear to sensor herself for anyone. I kind of envy that. As...
