Reasons Why You’re Not A Famous Rapper
When I first started blogging, I freelanced for any and everyone I could. Some of my dopest posts have been music related and have garnered me opportunities to meet people I have been fans of and given me a platform to further lend my voice and opinions to more ears and eyes.
In the 4 years I’ve been doing this shit, I’ve came up with a few reasons as to why SOME OF YOU have not yet quite hit the pinnacle of success you dream of.
Wanna hear it?
Here it go!!!!!
Fuck Shit That Happened This Week
Well I missed you too! So much has gone on this week…..IN CASE you missed it…..HERE WE GO!
My biggest pet peeve about men, opening their damn mouth when they should just keep QUIET. Not that I keep up with his news (I had to Google), Bow Wow made an appearance on Wildin’ Out and when asked who gives the best head, Ciara or Angela Simmons, he chose to divulge that both of them are equal.
Why I Can’t Give You Everything In The Dating Phase
Cause we’re dating.
And like I preach every year, I’ll preach THIS YEAR.
You have to start like how you want to finish!
What You Do For Love…..Always Comes Back To You
Just some wise words to start your work week off right.
Whatever you do in life, do it with love. It will always come back to you. It may not be in the form that you expected it to be, but trust it will always come back to you.
What I’ve been learning about myself is that I NEVER do anything for people with the intentions of getting something back in return.
Do it with pure light in your heart and you will always be rewarded.
Don’t worry about what will happen to your future self. If you live it with good intentions and you’re open love and light…….nothing will hurt you. When you expect things is when you will be filled with disappointment.
Genuineness brings peace to not only those around you but to the self as well.
Let love guide you and you will always be rewarded when you least expect it.
It sounds cliche but how true it is.
Yep……….I’m A Punk
So as Jazz and I sat down waiting patiently for her potstickers and my rum shaker with muddled strawberries, I filled her in on an eventful, yet unsuccessful weekend.
From outfit details, to retirement celebrations, to wedding talk, to house parties and everything else between. I filled her head with the highs and lows of my weekend escapades as only true girlfriends would do. She anxiously waited for the big climax of my stories where her homegirl would triumphantly say “Girl, it happend” …………….and sadly, I had nothing left to give her.
Aside from her and my sister, they KNOW my story. From a horrible split in January to dates that didn’t quite make the cut. THEY KNOW. God do they know…….so when I decided to start looking at a friend as more than that….it kind of made sense in this transition, ya know? I started getting more and more excited every day I talked or spent time with him. And in turn, my friends were happy that I was happy.
Almost two months later though………..I have nothing to report but extremely long hugs and a couple of pecks on the lips.
And I’m damn near 30. NOT 15.
Dear Eden (cough) - I mean ‘Leave Your Feelings At the Door’, I am have an issue with keeping fresh during the day. I heard that vinegar and water keeps it feeling tart down in the southern region and that you can tell it works when it started to tingle and burn. Should I grab an insert of Glade or perhaps one of those portable fans that I can stick on my skirt to blow the freshness my way. I left my freshness at the door. I appreciate your honesty.
What is so funny is that I KNOW who sent me this “secret” submission.
YOU ARE A FEWL GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you use vinegar and water, it is true, it will eliminate the odor but USE SPARINGLY. It could make you tighter as well causing sex to be painful. My suggestion to you is to seek out your primary care physician to check out your problem and/or change your diet. A good chance your PH Balance could be off.
VH essentials has a PHENOMENAL line with probiotics that help promote your immune system.
That’s all I can help you with darling.
And for future reference….I LOATHE THE TERM THOT!!!!!!!
Love you boo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I’m Being Honest: “Educated” Independent Black Women…… Irk My Nerves
Now that I have your attention……….let me explain.
I myself am an educated, well traveled, and enlightened………black woman. I’m proud of my culture, my heritage, and what I have and WILL continue to contribute to my community.
With that being said……….let me tell you what I’ve seen on my Facebook newsfeed these past couple of months…..
Sound Off: Why We CAN’T Get Off The Issue Of Color
Because some where we seem to have a problem embracing our many different hues.
The level of disrespect I see some of these black mEn have to other black women is on a whole new level and I’m sick of it. I’ve heard plenty of arguments that this generation is more open-minded when it comes to race issues but NEVER in my 28 years of living have I experienced so much talk of color than I have in these past 3 years.
NEVER….have I had so many conversations about this Light skinned/ Dark skinned debate than I have in most recent years.
We can say it’s a “non issue” but clearly from the above screen shot……BUT CLEARLY IT IS.
My issue isn’t about color with my own people but accepted racism and bigotry within the community.
Colorism, in my beliefs, starts with children so WATCH what you say and expose them to. They are watching…..and those same impressionable children become grown adults that house these insane contradictions and impose them on others.
Color is an issue because we continue to make it one and not embrace it. What you like is what you like……but to take it a step forward and disrespect a woman, whom you don’t even know, is absurd and revolting. Choose to ignore it or not, we’re all different so stop ignoring it because shit like this happens. Let’s start setting these young men straight so the disrespect stops…….it’s getting ridiculous now.
What is your experience with this and what do you think we can do to fix behavior like this? Hell, can we????
