just give my boys a little time.
im still riding with them.


no other female artist can do it better.
keep killin em Mrs. B. Carter.
call me a sap or whatever but the thanksgiving special left me in tears.
how can you not love this lady? rhetorical question. :)

a name.

my father fell in love with her beauty.
my mother fell in love with her music.
im very grateful to be named after someone
as elegant, beautiful, and as classic as she.


im not the sister of a movie star.
or the daughter of a millionaire.
i dont have rock star parents.
or maids to clean up behind me.
my forks, kinves and spoons are silver.
but i wasnt born with one in my mouth :)
my parents arent "royalty"
so no, im no princess persay.
but in all honesty i feel a girl with even a little substance
can definitely go a long way. im blessed.

just a girl

i never quite mastered the art of matching.
i forget & confuse #'s such as 3's & 5's or 2's & 6's.
im hardly ever on time.
i always leave at least one item behind whenever im at someone's home.
the right side of my hair never curls correctly.
my butt looks larger on the right side than the left.
my feelings get hurt easily.
i tend to forget people's names.
i talk L O U D!!
i always smile, even if the girls around me are "mugging".
i ALWAYS look for the GOOD in people,
seems i tend to look harder & just continue finding the bad. ugh.
im as pretty as a picture, but not tall enough to be a model.
im just a girl, trying to find my own way in this humongous world.
and boy is it tough, but all in all i wouldnt have it any other way. :)

.. thrift.. click clock ...

.. im overdue for a thrift shop visit :) .... ahhhhh *screams* i must visit today !! .


The hardest part about my life right now is that I’m unsure of who is here to stay and how many are waiting to either make a dramatic or graceful exit. Everywhere I look I see something about friends not really being friends just people who have the same thing in common, giving one another devious competition. The scariest thing about the human mind is that you never know what its thinking or where it may wonder off. You never know what another person is capable of. I always find myself loving too hard, or trusting too much. A good heart is supposed to get you a long way, but when others around you have wicked intentions your first idea of how you expected a situation to go can sometimes fall by the wayside. Hopefully I’m not losing anyone, I’m pretty much just typing exactly what I’m thinking and how I’m feeling. But I guess that’s why life is life. You can never really be too certain about anything but your own self, your own actions, and most importantly your own intentions. I guess for now ill just be content with the people that are here, and the people who have never left, my family. And as my surroundings change I have to make sure no matter what I stay the same.

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so out of control that you have to transform your life…” - elizabeth gilbert

"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. ." — Gilda Radner

"For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness,
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people,
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry,
For Beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day,
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others." — Audrey Hepburn


. . .

i plan to make as many memories
with the best people ever as possible.
i want to smoke, i want to cook, i want to laugh,
i just want to live. the drama is a bore & frankly im
too old. i just want to enjoy the rest of my youth,
getting old comes too soon.
they say "youth is wasted on the young"
&& in a few years, in societys eyes, it'll be time
for us to have families, & careers.
oh, im so not ready for that.
i mean the career of course, im ready to dive in,
extremely ready, lol. but as for the family part,
it can wait a bit.

so ive promised myself; if something makes me upset but its small enough to forget about for even a moment, take a deep breath and let it go because life if simply too short.

Get inspired or be depressed.
Ace a test or flunk a class.
Make babies or make art.
Speak the truth or lie and cheat.
Dance on tables or sit in the corner.
Life is divine chaos.
Embrace it. And enjoy the ride... "

cali dreams

we had a talk &
devised a plan.
miles apart, our hearts still
beat for one another.
we'll work,
we'll visit,
but soon enough, it'll all be over.
im patiently waiting.
in two years
we take over cali.
&& live our lives, like their golden
because they are & forever will be.

i love this lady.

his 6th sense seems to be knowing
the EXACT times i need him most.
he's GORGEOUS. plain & simple.
with a heart of gold.
he's intelligent.
he's driven.
he's christian.


im not sure what happened in his past.
i honestly could care less because

"no engagement could amount to his friendship"

for some reason im drawn to him. i never want him to hurt.
i have this certain need to protect him. i *love* him.
we match. we work. . . as friends . nothing more, nothing less.
im so grateful to have someone as great as him in my life.

because even thou he may not be the ONE it gives me hope
that my BOSS may just be around the corner.

"In the future hopefully
We'll be together you and me
Don't you worry baby please, because honestly...

Both the hands of time
Still I would never find

Than you" - B.O.B.

.back with the jumpoff.

"im having a good time. . they just tryna ruin it"

my blog pertains to MY life.

no celeb gossip.
not your favorite artist.
not your favorite mixtape.
not your favorite designer.

i blog MY life. if i post about a pair of shoes, its because 'I' think they're hott.
if i make a post about an artist, its because 'I' like their music & think they're popping.
and so on, and so on. blog full of my opinions the intention has never been to hurt feelings.
just living my life like its golden. =)

consider this my form of meditation.


Kanye is AWESOME.
point. blank. period.

the lone ranger.

its been about 6mths. no rough draft, no notes. . .
everything straight from the HEART.

i can't help but to smile at the thought
of you. one of the most unique people i've ever met.
we had a special bond. so many real talks just between
the company of you and me. i told you my dreams, and
you never once laughed at me. everytime i saw or spoke to
you the words "JJ i love you" were said. you were my friend,
i nicknamed you my "lone ranger" because for the most part
you stayed one deep. i will never have the words to express
what i felt when i first heard the news. no matter what anyone said
smh i just KNEW it wasnt you. mistaken identity. so much
potential just cut short i couldnt understand why God would take you
away. i kept saying "nah, not jj." i'm no one to question God
but i cant help but think whatever we were supposed to learn or get
from your death we could have been taught another way. i didnt make it home
for the funeral, i was stuck in ATL, lol the place you used to say
stole me from the H. smh. i would give anything just to see you again dude, smoke with you, laugh with you. you we're one of the few people that
could still make me laugh while cursing me out. cant turn back the hands of
time but im glad i always told you i loved you when the oppurtunity was
presented. you will forever be with us.

we LOVE you JJ.

"Missing You" - Drake



somewhere between all the social networking sites,

instant messaging, text messaging, and emails

our personal social skills seem to have commited assisted suicide.

dont call me.

just tweet me ;)


i had a talk with my girl Bree the other day about the usual: boys, money, food and then the topic of me moving back to Atlanta came up. i immediately got sad. ATL has been my home for the past 3yrs, its where MY life is, aside from my parents.

she commented back saying "don't feel bad everyone is moving, going their own way right now." no more water fights, or special brownies. no more breaking up to make up with the college sweetheart. no more free college parties. wow. have i really been so busy that i didn't realize we're closer to being "grown up" then we've every been before ?!? i still feel like i'm so young that nothing is set in stone, but the decisions we make now will affect the lives we live later. time is passing by so fast, tomorrows become yesterdays so quick. i just want to stop, smell the flowers, && enjoy the moment. . .

but not at the cost of being left so far behind i can never catch up. this 'time' thing is tricky. i guess that's where faith comes in. . faith that God has a plan for me so great that not even i could imagine. i spoke with my mom about it and she said this is just the beginning. you don't start really living until after college. either way it goes. . . this is the beginning of the BEST days of our lives

karmas daughter

she's brown skinned and got the most gorgeous eyes

she flirted with what i thought to be the most absurd of lies

she wasn't so cute then, so all she got was stares && denies

she was hurt by my actions, but i ain't see a reason for her tries

the following years brought about many changes

her success can be seen displayed on various pages

im just pissed because my frustration ranges

and i think im locked in multiple cages

now she lookin like an angel fell

staring too long will cause me to swell

her beauty on the inside i know too well

im sad because im left with this story to tell

im on the sidelines wising i had a chance

for a conversation, a date, or a dance

but im in no position to make an advance

because im a knight fighting with no lance

i feel bad for them days i wouldn't bother

ignoring her flirting and i wouldn't call her

now im just stuck wishing and seeking her

karma's a bitch and im in love with her daughter.


Mr West the Best

thank God for Kanye.

@kanyewest: I wake up everyday and say - I'm trying my best to stay out my own way

i now will live vicariously throu his twitter page. =)

.home sweet home.

"it feels so GOOD to be back"

bun b on pandora, cowboy boots,
