Feste Felici!!!


Hello World! How many of you have made a list of your resolutions already? With the sun in Capricorn (a determined, hard-working sign) it's the right time to sit down and think about that which you want to weed out of your life and more importantly, what you want to help cultivate and grow. So what seeds will we plant in our gardens? I am looking forward to confidence, discipline and IT knowledge (my job) in the coming year. I also need to weed out the amount of shopping I do and the negative company that I keep. I will make sure to keep you all posted with my progress. Peace and light to you and yours, Buon Natale and Buon Anno!!

Happy Halloween!!!



So I FINALLY got my car people, and MAN it makes life so much easier, because you have no choice but to drive everywhere over here!! I haven't had much time to get out and explore like I would, but that's a-comin'!! It'll give me something to look forward to everyday... and more opportunities to work on my italian (knowing a little Spanish definitely helps, shout out to mi boricuas y chicanos!!!)

Unfortunately the road signs aren't properly posted here in Italy, they're either non-existent or on the side of some n=building, all small and never illuminated!!! SO I had to invest in a GPS system right away... in the midst of trying to pay off all bills... anyway, it took me a minute to decide if I wanted a Garmin or a TomTom, but I went with the cheaper one (Garmin) and so far, so good...

Tonight is HALLOWEEN, and I'm going to my first Halloween party!!

I've been making friends with a few of the ladies out here, they all right... I haven't found that chic that I know Ima click with yet, but even still, things are looking up for the homegirl.. now if I can just fast forward through time to the year 2012?? (When I leave this place) ...I'd be in the game!! =)

VIVA ITALIA!!!


I have arrived to Naples, Italy my beloveds!! The food, the culture.... I shall "grow where I've been planted" and explore, explore, explore!! I have to admit though, that I am not as taken with Naples as I thought I would be.. but the country on the other hand, is still VERY lovely and I look forward to enjoying all that it has to offer... I have been to Vatican City and I will go to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast in the am... Wish me luck on my journey here and God Bless you all... Happy Birthday to all my Libras out there too, I love you guys!!!!

The Transition... As I Grow.

I've been in Atlanta for the past week and I've spent a lot of time alone (which I didn't think I would be doing, being that I used to live here and have a number of family and friends here) BUT since I have met so many positive people for each day that I've been here, and shared intimate and profound conversations with, (I mean EVERY single day that I've been here!) it just shows how much I've grown and how I am attracting all of this love at a time when I'm yearning for a relationship like never before. I was actually living in the Sunshine State, comfortable, lovely, at the end of my military contract, when I decided to re-up and go overseas to look for what I've been missing in my life: a husband. I do not want to put too much pressure on this man or on myself as a wife or on the sanctity of marriage, I just know that I am ready and I am willing and I am ABLE. And that the time is nigh and I feel really good about it because I've been waiting on this ALL of my life... because of the people that are being led to me, and through these experiences, I have been able to make connections as I never have. With strangers. At deep levels. So I can just imagine my ability to have love and build stronger relationships with those that are already in my life! It is coming and I am excited. I have been building myself up to be a strong woman already, but if I have no one to share it with, what's the point... If i have no one to pass it along to, what's the point.... I am self-motivated but a partner will help me grow even MORE I know it. Now where are you, you've been hiding all my life!!! =)

MOVING AGAIN.....THIS TIME ACROSS THE ATLANTIC!

When I create my family, I will be DONE moving. I think I keep moving around so much because I am looking for someone to create one with.. or maybe my true calling? I've moved around every few years since I was 16. Now I'm 28. Shit's getting old. It's no longer any fun. I don't like being the new person and I really don't feel like making any new friends..... (SIGH) Italy here I come. And you better be worth all of this.

It Hurts Sooooo Good!!

I had a really good cry today... life can be such a bitch!!! But hey, what doesn't kill me will make me stronger! I just want to share with the world that I KNOW I am a product of strength and endurance and everything will be all right. =) ....Hello World!!

The FB Craze...

I have been bitten by the social networking site, Facebook's, bug!! I used to purposely stay away from Black Planet, Myspace and Tagged, but now I have accounts with all of them!! It's a beautiful thing though, because of the profession that I'm in, I travel all over the world and it's so much easier to keep in touch... AND if I ever damage or lose my phone, it's too easy to log on and be right back in contact w/ most everybody you had in there!! Well, almost... Happy Friday!! =)

What's Up w/ the XXXSmall Shorts on our tweens??

Why is that ALL of the shorts I'm seeing on young ladies out here are SMALL AS SH*T?!! I mean, really. Coochie Cutters, Daisy Dukes, Booty Shorts... are we seriously letting our babies wear these little things? Is this what we call "in?" Call me old-fashioned but I think it's quite disgusting. They're babies, and already exposed to too much with the advanced technology we have today.. goodness. Pedophiles keep your thoughts and comments to yourself.

*Btw, I can't post a pic. I just can't. SMH!

Rihanna Has Inspired Me...







....to cut my hair! .... Yes, I think it's about that time again.... and okay, I know I'm the worst blogger EVER, I know I know.. but I've been crazy busy! I'm getting ready to leave my lovely Florida and move allll the way across the Atlantic.. to Italia!! Yes, I'm super excited but also immensely sad because I have definitely fallen for Florida... I don't know if I will be able to get stationed here again or if I will move back here on my own. (I can do it much bigger on my military salary in Texas!) But at the same time, Florida definitely feels like home for me... Anyway, I came on to post a few hairstyles to see which ones you all think are the most BELLISIMA, which is italian for beautiful.... so I need some feedback! Let me know because I'm changing it up in just 3 short weeks!!

Friday, June 19, 2009




I'm like the million other people that browse thought the gossip blogs wondering what's been happening with my favorite celebrities, good and bad... but WHY do we follow them the way that we do? Aren't our lives fulfilling enough? I have a heck of a schedule as it is.... what with school, being in the military and managing my small business on the side? Not to mention keeping my head on straight from these vultures and haters out here... but yet I can't go too long without going to my fave sites to check out the latest.... yes I do want to see what Rihanna is rocking, and mmh hmm I do want to see ALL the pictures of Amber Rose (she's so hot to me) as well as my girl Ciara (Hey CiCi!) ...plus get all up into who's dating who... but I guess it's just our escape... I know I definitely wouldn't mind having the access to the fabulosity that they all enjoy as well, so I daydream and take notes, lol.. Don't play like you don't....Til next time!

Locks.. are they "dreadful"?


I hate when people refer to LOCKS as "dreads" or to people who wear them as a "dread head" or simply a "dread." It makes me think about dirty hair and other foul things.... I've always admired females who stepped outside of the relaxer box and went natural.... it's something that I've been thinking a lot about. I'm going to do it, I just don't know when... I want to take pride in what's naturally mine. I don't want to be like everyone else with the weaves going down my back and wishing I had really long hair... I'm happy with what I've been blessed with... not that there's anything wrong with accentuating your beauty (with a weave) because I do the makeup and the fashion, and I've been known to throw a phony pony and rock kinky twists or micros ...I like to get "fly" 2..... but why do I feel hesitant to cut my hair or go natural? Is it because I'm that concerned with what society perceives as beautiful and I want to be in that category? Every girl wants to be pretty, of course, but we make enough sacrifices to try and be beautiful already... so freak all of that. I can save so much money and probably make a positive impression on my sisters and friends. I think locks are beautiful and I've been living in Florida where they're really popular, so it just makes it that much easier to go ahead and do it.... I'll keep you guys posted. If you have locks or love 'em, give me a shout! Til next time!

THE COLLAPSE OF EBONY AND JET MAGAZINES!










EBONY AND JET FINANCIAL COLLAPSE!

One of the Most notable permanent fixtures in EVERY Black Household (back
in the days), were Ebony and Jet Magazine. If you wanted to learn
about Black history, the plight of Black America, current issues facing Black
Americans, how the Political Process of America affects us, how
Politics works, who the hottest actors were, what time a particular Black
Television show aired, who got married recently, who were the most
eligible Bachelors and Bachelorettes in your town, what Cities had Black
Mayors, Police Chiefs, School Superintendents, how to Register to Vote, what cars offer
the best value for the buck, who employed Black Americans, how to apply
for College Scholarships, etc. More than likely, Ebony or Jet Magazine
could help you find answers to those questions!

We have recently been informed that the Johnson Publishing
Company Organization is currently going through a financial crisis. The
company is attempting a reorganization in order to survive. Many people
have already lost their jobs with this company that has employed thousands of
Black Americans during the course of its existence. In order to support
this effort to save OUR magazine, my friends and myself have pledged to
get a subscription to both, Ebony and Jet magazine, starting with one
year.
We are urging every other club member who comes across this plea, to do
the same. Please post, re-post, and post again, to any Blog that you may
own, or support!

Please email this to Every person that you know, regardless of their
background. Let them know that Ebony and Jet magazines have been part of
the Black American culture for 3 quarters of a century, and that there is
a lot that they can learn about Black American culture from reading them.

We are currently discussing the idea of throwing an Ebony/Jet Party,
where people can eat, drink, and sign up for their Subscription on the
spot. Please spread this idea around to all that you know. Your
Sororities, Fraternities, Lodges, VFW Posts, Churches, Civic Groups, Block
Clubs, Caps Meetings, Book Clubs, etc.

It would be a crying shame, to lose our Historic Magazine, during the
same year of such an Historic Event as the Election of our First Black
President of the United States. Please support by AT LEAST spreading the word about this. PEACE and BLESSINGS to you and yours.

Living In The Past...


I have a memory like an elephant if I've felt slighted in any way. I tend to hold grudges and "carry bags" around from situations or people that have had a negative psychological impact on me, however great or small. I've tried to curb it, but it just doesn't seem to want to go away... I don't know what to do to about i, but I'm trying to channel it into something positive, because it's rather excessive to me and I'm actually ashamed to admit it. I can still be cordial to the person, or act politically correct in a situation that reminds me of the time when, etc., but... I just wish I knew how I could turn it into something else. Like maybe... when i'm taking a test? :/

What Would You Do If You Knew You Couldn't Fail??



I'D TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!! Lol, no really... I think I'd be a pretty good ruler too.. I'm fair and unbiased... I'm a woman, so I'm more sensitive to the issues of human nature than a man (than MOST men, don't spazz out, the rest of you!) and... I've always been an advocate of social justice! I respect and inquire about all cultures... I'd be the bomb. So, what do you say?? Can we vote team Saqqara?? =) What about you? What would you do??

Thank You God... Just My Thoughts

I'm 27 years old, about to be 28 in April.. and I tell you, I have been waiting to turn this age ever since I heard, around the age of 14 or so that you don't KNOW yourself until you turn 28. I thought I know myself, what the heck, you know as a child we think we know it all.. but as the years went by and the growing pains got worse I realized that wow... I really DON'T know myself as well as I thought I did... there was so much to see and explore I didn't want to put myself in a box or classify myself in anyway.. so I began to pay attention to the CONSISTENCIES in my life.. and from there I saw the light, so to speak.. and I've been able to work on my strengths and weaknesses and figure out what it is that really makes me tick or that I have been suppressing in order to be politically correct or better accepted... but now I'm like FUCK THAT. Lol, I try to be ladylike, but then the tomboy come out, I told yall..... anyway, I'm feeling like y life has just begun and even though it has been HARD AS HELL coming into my own, it's definitely happening for me right around the age of 28... I can remember exactly who I heard it from even though it wasn't by mouth, I read it in an interview with Todd Day of the Milwaukee Bucks at the time.... and it always stuck with me... Well Todd, wherever you are, you are right! And I'm glad I'm finally here because no one knows how much I've struggled with my developments... what I can say though is that I never was a follower, i always marched to the beat of my own drum and made sure that things never got too much out of hand.. I have a good job, I didn't let some knucklehead get me pregnant, I handle my business and my money is right.. I'm educated and always looking to improve myself, enjoying life, and what have you... all of us who look at someone else's life and think the grass is greener... 9 times out of 10 it took hard work to get where they are. Trust Me.... I feel so blessed and so happy today to be in my shoes, I wouldn't trade me to be anyone else. Thanks God.
