Blog Challenge Day 24-30 FINALLY!

I’ve been behind guys, I’m terribly sorry.

Day 24: What attracts me, when dealing with love

  • Affection. It’s something about being held, and being kissed & touched in the right places. 

  • A sense of remembering things. I hate repeating myself about certain things, so if a guy can remember something I told him and elaborate on it, I’m attracted to that.

  • If you can make me laugh, I’m attracted to your humor.

  • A pretty smile is sooo sexy to me, if you can make me laugh an on top of that, laugh with me and show those beautiful teeth…LORD!

DAY 25: BIGGEST REGRET

I feel like I have so many, but I’ll keep it short.

  • Not blogging while in college. I could have been really big by now.

  • Not taking dance seriously in college

  • Not doing sports in high school.

  • Dealing with F*** boys!

  • Pursuing digital media sooner than now

DAY 26: HIDDEN TALET

I’m kind of good at imitations. Like E-40 (my best one), Kevin Hart, and a couple more lol. I wish I could sing, or paint, but for now, I’m only good at imitations lol.

 

DAY 27: WHATS IN MY CLOSET

I have sandals, boots, sweaters, sundresses, and UGGS in my closet. I stay in Missouri and the weather here is bipolar AF. I also have a Sombrero in my closet from Chevys lol.

DAY 28: MOST EMBARASSING MOMENT

Hmmmmm, I remember being in 7th grade at my new school. For some reason I carried around this binder with my posters from magazines Word Up and Right On. They were posters of B2k, IMX, and whoever was poppin back in 2003 lol. Well when I got out of class and was walking to my next class, i spilled out alll my posters and people was chuckling and shit and I felt soooooooooooooooo drove (STL Slang). From them on, I never carried around those posters in a binder at school again. I still don’t know why I was carrying it around at school smh.

Meek Mill is Home!

featured image: foxnews.com

Yesterday Philly rapper Meek Mill was released from a Philadelphia prison, after serving 5 months.

I’d be the first to say that I’m not a huge Meek fan, but I like a few of his songs but have yet to listen to a full album of his. Dreams & Nightmares is my shit tho!

A judge, who denied his request for bail, decision was overturned by the Philadelphia Supreme Court. If you haven’t been keeping up, he was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for a probation violation, which stemmed from him being convicted of drug & gun charges back in 2008.

Overall, the judge had it out for Philly rapper. Reports came out that the female judge who convicted him of the 2-4 years, was trying to persuade him to sign under her friend’s record label, then wanted him to sing a Boys 2 Men song pleading for his freedom. Of course he didn’t and BOOM he’s been in jail every sense. The public has been very supportive of the injustice that’s he’s faced while this whole situation has prolonged. Celebrities from Jay-Z to T.I. to Kevin Hart have been advocates for him since the beginning and luckily they used their platforms to bring awareness of his situation, a black man being “overly” charged for unnecessary reasons.

When Meek was released, his friend Mike Rubin, who is co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, picked him up in a private helicopter and whisked him away to the 76ers playoff game against the Miami Heat, and coincidentally THEY WON! Even Kevin Hart silly ass was there with him, sitting court side. Meek was even able to ring the ceremonial Liberty Bell replica.

Not only did the the 76ers win the playoff, but they won first round, and on top of that, it’s been 5 years since they’ve been in the playoffs, so it looks like it’ll be a great year for Philly. They already won the Superbowl and if they get even further in the playoffs and not win, it’ll still be a win for them overall. 

What was very meaningful to me was seeing Meek with his son on the court. I think it’s beautiful to see him reunited with one of his sons.

I’m glad that an innocent black man is free and he says he’ll be using his platform to shed light on situations like this. Social injustice is real and Meek says:

“I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues”

GO MEEK! 

Comment below your thoughts on the whole Meek Mill situation.

“Racism Wasn’t Real”..Bishh What?

featured image: toofab.com

Real Housewives of Atlanta is what I’m referring to. The reunion to RHOA came on Sunday night and FORMER Housewife Kim Zolciak was having an argument with the whole cast regarding her daughter Brielle. Kim’s daughter Brielle was at Nenes house during a party, and decided to go in her bathroom and take a few selfie videos. As she was recording, she “supposedly” stumbled across roaches in the bathroom. She then eventually uploaded the video on Instagram. So anyone who is black knows that if you tell someone that they have roaches in their house, that’s a sign of being dirty and to take it a step deeper, it’s a metaphor for racism, as Andy Cohen had stated.

Cast mate Kandi Burruss brought that point up and stated that the incident could have been taken wrong and even racist because when you think of roaches in a house, some people link it to black people and being dirty. When Kandi said that the reference could come across as being racist, KIM opened her ole inflated ass lip and said “Racism wasn’t all that  real” …I’m sorry….what ma’am??

You heard me right!! She said that the cast was “reaching” and that  “this whole racism thing in this day & age is bullshit.” And she said it front of Sheree, who is her BLACK friend. You would have thought that Sheree  would’ve checked her “friend” on the comment. We don’t know what happened when the cameras stopped rolling, but I feel like that is something that should’ve been filmed if Sheree responded.

First off, racism is VERY real. There are people who DON’T like Black people, STILL. There are people who don’t like Asians, Arabians, etc. So for Kim to say that, she is WRONG AS FUCK! You would think that since she’s surrounded herself with multiple black friends over the past 10 years, she would know the history of black people and not say that fucked up comment of racism “not being all that real.” Sheree needs to her “check her boo.” Maybe Kim isn’t racist and she just has racists way and a filthy way of expressing her thought about it! Maybe Kim IS racist and has been trying to hide it while being on the show with SEVERAL black women. WHO KNOWS!

Now that the reunion is over, it was announced a few weeks ago that Kim was NEVER going back on the show EVER.

We don’t wanna see you ANYWAYS! Also, after the show, Kim was crying backstage saying that felt attacked and there was nothing good to say about her. Andy Cohen brought up a point that her whole story line hasn’t been positive (not those exact words, but a summary of it). That could be a reason why she isn’t returning. Another reason could be because of her comment and the network didn’t want any backlash from viewers, so BOOM she’s gone.

What are your thought on the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Part 3 Reunion?

Coachella Recap 2018

featured image: thatgrapejuice.net

Coachella was the talk of social media this past weekend ESPECIALLY Beyonce. She stole the show for the WHOLE WEEKEND, with her HBCU band, her reunion with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams from Destinys Child and bringing her sister Solange on stage to kill it with her. Beyonce has the whole Beehive wanting to pledge Beta Delta Kappa, which is the sweatshirt she wore in the second picture. Fans drew the conclusion that Beyonce was a sorority and they wanted to pledge. The letters B-A-K were on her sweatshirt and it could mean B-Beyonce, A-symbolizing Delta, but could also be related to the Roc Nation sign, and the K-for Knowles.

Blogging Challenge: Day 16: My Thoughts on Education

featured gif credit: tenor.com

Ohhhhh education you say….

Well as stated before, I have an education, just finished my Masters. The cost of education SUCKS. I understand that colleges are funded by the government and we can apply for some aid, buut then there’s student loans. Like DAMN,  it’s getting out of hand the interest that is accruing even when you DO pay them back. How is it that you have to payback an arm and a leg to student loans  PLUS interest, BUT it isn’t 100% guaranteed that you will get a job after college unless you’re a Nurse, Lawyer, Police Officer or some kind of government official?

I graduated with my bachelors in Journalism. Yes, I applied for jobs months before graduation but could NOT find anything. Some of my classmates found things so I can’t fully say that it’s the degree that I got, but Journalism isn’t the easiest category to find a job in. I can honestly say this, I didn’t fully open my options up when it came to my job selection but I was still looking. I didn’t have a job for 3 months and I ended up at Macy’s for a temp job, then a month later I was in healthcare. I’m STILL in Healthcare but only because I don’t like to job hop, they’re flexible with my schedule, I was able to finish my masters with this job andddddddddddd it pays the bills.

I went back to school for my masters because A) My bachelor’s wasn’t getting me far,  B) Getting a masters puts me in another pay bracket, C) I had time and D) I wanted to further my education. Do I regret getting the Masters, yes and no. Yes, because I realized 3-4 weeks before finishing up that what I want/wanted to do, doesn’t require a Masters degree. Journalism and some media classes on editing and videography could have did me justice for what I want to do, which is be an Entertainment reporter/journalist. I don’t regret it because I furthered my education and I could make more schmoney lol. I’m also the only one in my family generation with a Masters; and 1 of 3 that even has a Bachelors; so to me, in a sense, I have to lead by example. I have a lot of little cousins and I want to show them that sometimes education is your best fit, depending on the career you want, especially if you want to be something bigger than a good ole journalist and maybe pursue being a doctor or lawyer. If you DON’T want to go to college, then you need to find a good side hustle like arts & craft, hair stylist, chef, etc; that’s what I would say to the youth. If you wanna be a doctor, ya gotta take that ass to school kiddo lol. You can’t expect to get far in life without learning ANYTHING. Even if the kids nowadays don’t want to school, they can pick up a trade, which you can do while still in high school and maybe even join the army. I wouldn’t want my future kids joining the army but that’s another topic for another day lol.

All in all, education should be free or AT LEAST cheaper. Did ya know that there are countries in Europe and South America that have free education?

I’m not sure what they are doing but someone in Congress needs to be taking notes. Some people are paying off loans while on their death bed. Something that would be helpful is paying $20 a month before you graduate would somewhat help, but if you aren’t paying the required $600 a month that the lenders want, then you aren’t paying enough and you fall in the “pay hella interest” category. That’s not right. Yes, I do believe that parents should start saving for their children’s education while the kid is young. But then again, life happens and you have to dip into that fund for personal reasons. IT HAPPENS, I GET IT. When I have children, I’m definitely going to be saving but I dont want my kids going through what I’m going through now–paying student loans while interest is still accruing.

All we can do is plan for and hope for the best. As far as the government and lenders…..make that shit cheaper! Y’all killing us out here with these weak methods of paying you off.

Welp, rant over lol.
