What you see, isn't always what you get!




This my friends is a problem. We rarely see the NEWS being called out on how wrong they are for the News Clips they do. I always remembered my mother telling me to stay far away from and News Channel if they come around. They have the ability to twist, change and alter what you say. This is wrong. “We”, some African Americans/Blacks, always judge the NAACP for “complaining” (speaking out or voicing their opinions), but we also forget that justice should be served at ALL TIMES! What are your thoughts on this?

A MUST See!!!



I’ve always loved movies like this. = ) Let’s not forget where we came from, but most importantly lets not forget where we are going.

Shoegrasm...



Okay, so this video is an eleven minute tour of ShoeZeum, given by Jordy Geller. The ShoeZum is a 9,000 square- foot shoe sanctuary that will have you pretty much have you going crazy. There are more than 2,000 pairs of Nikes. Do you know how much I use to love Nikes? *sigh*

Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill

My world it moves so fast today
The past it seems so far away
And I squeeze it so tight, I can't breathe
And every time I try to be
What someone has thought of me
So caught up, I wasn't able to achieve
But deep in my heart the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind to find my own destiny
I look at my environment
And wonder where the fire went
What happened to everything we used to be
I hear so many cry for help
Searching outside of themselves
Now I know His strength is within me
And deep in my heart the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind to find my own destiny
And deep in my heart the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind to find my own destiny

"Just call this shit hiipower. Nigga nothing less than hi power"


A. Clay hip'd me to this, so I might as well share it with you all.. & don't forget to go and check out his blog... Two Left Feets

"Just call this shit hiipower. Nigga nothing less than hiipower"

According to Killer Hip Hop, HiiPower is Kendrick Lamar's first single from his upcoming project "#Section80". Produced by J. Cole and directed by Fredo Tovar and Scott Fleishman (Download on iTunes). You can check out more of Kendrick Lamar's videos and vlogs on his Youtube Channel at . At the beginning of the video he explains why he's doing this #Section80 project. Kendrick Lamar is listed as #9 on The BIG List: Greatest Rappers Alive Under 30, beating Wale, Wiz Khalifa, Cory Gunz, Meek Mill and Juelz Santana, just to name a few.

"I wrote #Section80 because I was ordered to do so. You'll never understand my life and my world. Have you ever seen a new born baby kill a man? Kendrick Lamar. The very next scene is a visual of me with the eyes of a 6 year old. My mother told me to keep this outtake because it said who I was. An infant looking for answer. Will you forgive me? I don't give a fuck about too much nowadays because of the world. Heart. Honor. Respect. Family. I'll die for that though. Will you forgive me, twice? Probably not. I watch this video and reminisce on that crazy am hour of September 13, 2010. I got a visit from Lesane Parish Crooks. Research this name. I remember being asleep. His image said "Don't let me die." I was paranoid. I said "why"? He said "because you the.....""
- Kendrick Lamar


Check these lyrics.. ------ HiiPower

"..This is physical and mental
I wouldn’t sugar coat it
You’ll die from Diabetes if these other niggas wrote it
And everything on TV just a figment of imagination
I don’t want no plastic nation
Read that like a Hatian
While you muthafckers waiting
I be off the slave ship, building pyramids writing my own hieroglyphs.."


This is about to be something big. Just think, with young artist such as Big K.R.I.T., Nipsey Hussle, Wale, Kirko Bangz, J.Cole, Lupe Fiasco, Cory Gunz, Big Sean, B.o.B., and so many others we're in for a real treat. They are all about to give us something we've been waiting for, something we've needed for the past decade; GOOD MUSIC.

Now.... here's the video. Tell me what you think.

Did I mention? Graduation/HBCU Edition!

Did I forget to mention that......


I am now an Alumni of Morgan State University.....?




I guess I did. = ) I graduated on Saturday, May 21, 2011 @ 10am in the W.A.C. Hughes Stadium on Morgan State University's campus. I am still officially apart of the graduating class of 2010, I completed in December just had to wait to walk across the stage. But I made it, "Momma i made it!"
= )

Alma Mater
  1. Fair Morgan, we love thee, so tried and so true,
    Our hearts at thy name thrill with pride;
    We owe thee allegiance, we pledge thee our faith,
    A faith which shall ever abide.
    CHORUS
    We pledge thee our love, we pledge thee our faith,
    Whatever the future may bring,
    And thus our devotion, fidelity too,
    And homage we pay as we sing.
  2. Fair Morgan, as onward the years quickly fly,
    And thou livest in memory sweet.
    We bring thee our laurels whatever they be,
    And lay them with joy at thy feet.
    Author: Flora E. Strout
I love my university and will forever owe a debt to Morgan State, because of that school and the people in it, I've learned so much about myself, my culture and about others. I have so munch love for that University and every chance I get I try to share my experiences and my knowledge of my HBCU with other people. And just for those reading here is a link listing all 105 HBCU's just for you, just click on it -------- List of HBCU's...

Spread the word, HBCU's are just as relevant as they were when they first were founded.


Who runs the world...? Men..

I stumbled across this video on WSHH not to long ago. I just forgot to share the video on my blog, ; / oops... sorry.. Well anyway, this video is done by @NineteenPercent, she has her own Youtube Channel, search her at Nineteen Percent or click. I haven't had the opportunity to look at all of the videos just yet, but I do plan on doing so. Moving on.. so basically Ms. NineteenPercent took it upon herself to break Bey's song, "Run The World (Girls)" down, and I don't mean just break it down, I mean rip it apart, Literally!!!! In the description of her vlog she tries to make people understand her actual point isn't to show hatred to Beyonce but to make a point that females, indeed do not run the world and that we actually have a lot more to accomplish before we can even form our mouths to make a statement such as that. (Not to discredit any of our outstanding woman pioneers who've fought and struggled to get us this far, because we've come along way but just not far enough.)
"I get it. It's just a song. This video is not about Beyonce. It's not even really about this song. My point is NOT that she shouldn't have made this song because of X, Y, and Z. My point IS: Oh, Look! X, Y, and Z exist and this song is a great tie-in to a discussion of feminism. If you've watched some of my other videos, you would be able to sense the sarcastic tone. Relax."
She's clearly a feminist... and nothing's wrong with that. In fact she states that in her vlog that she is and actually gives us a website to continue our research on it if we wished to..... feministing.com. But what really got me while watching this video is the beginning when she says "...which by the way i don't think female domination is the goal, i think the end game should be a socially egalitarian society " which is what we all should be trying to do. We should learn to live and be EQUAL. Segregation and being divided gets us, as a people, nowhere and nowhere fast! I couldn't have said it better myself. Anyway, make sure you watch the video below and comment on it and also check out her Youtube Channel, which I'm actually trying to do at the moment.

Because I was already natural I didn't have to cut my hair (THANK GOD) I don't think I would have decided to start them honestly. But I'm ready. I started my hair in two strand twist.

The Handbook to a Successful Relationship... Pt. 2

Finally the long wait has ended I’m now able to share with you my opinion about how to have a “successful relationship”. I recently wrote Pt. 1 of the Handbook listing nine characteristics of a “successful relationship”.

“There's compromising, patience, faithfulness, respect, forgiveness, togetherness, and trust which also comes with honesty and COMMUNICATION.”

Here are some questions that will be answered:
1) What is the definition?
2) Why is it important in a “successful relationship”?
3) What are some examples of it in a “successful relationship”?
4) How is it displayed correctly?

Before I begin, I will say this. My boyfriend and I do not have the equivalent of a “PERFECT RELATIONSHIP” however WE are working towards a “successful relationship”, like many other couples out there. From observation of many couples and marriages and divorces I’ve noticed certain characteristics; “rules”. We know that in today’s society a lot of situations are changing. People aren’t exactly the typical HUSBAND and WIFE or GIRLFRIEND and BOYFRIEND anymore. Things have changed and evolved into something much more. According DivorceRate.org, in the United States alone:

  • 41% of first marriages end in divorce
  • 60% of second marriages end in divorce
  • 73% of third marriages end in divorce

Let’s start with COMMUNICATION, since that is my favorite. COMMUNICATION is defined as “an ongoing dynamic process of sharing meaning. Sharing both our ideas and feelings w/out forsaking for the other one.” According to Thomas E. Harris and Mark D. Nelson, authors of Applied Organizational Communication, communication is a very vital part of the human race. Communication is a process where there is a mutual assignment of meaning, simultaneous responses by all persons in the transaction, ongoing giving and receiving of multiple messages, circularity, and numerous channels of communication. Communication is what keeps this world going. Whether it may be nonverbal or verbal communication, it plays a major part in Society.

The verbal communication source has four roles:
  1. to determine the meaning of what is to be communicated
  2. to encode the meaning into a message
  3. to send the message
  4. to react to a listener's response to the message
Nonverbal:

a. Kinesics is body movement and body posture as well as facial expressions or gestures.
b. Paralanguage is considered to be the vocal quality/pitch, loudness, and tempo: sometimes also including facial expressions and gestures.
c. Sex roles- the biological prescriptions about what males and females should do with their bodies.
d. Gender Roles refer to the ways women and men are socially and culturally assigned feminine and masculine behaviors.

People may not understand how important communication in a “successful relationship” is, or any relationship for that matter. The thing that makes communication between significant others so important is that a miscommunication can alter so many things.

To Be Continued….

More to come....

After I finish "The Handbook to a Successful Relationship... Pt. 2" I'm going to write a blog on @Endometriosis "Is Endometriosis the End?"

Quote/History Of The Day!!

I think that I'll start doing my Daily Quotes.... It seems like that'll be something that will not only help me get through the day but it might just help someone else. And it's always good to help out another person. Not only will I just do "Quote of The Day" but I'll also share a description about the person who shared their own thoughts with the world.

"Quote of The Day":
"I believe in me more than anything in this world"
- Wilma Rudolph

"History of The Day"
Wilma Glodean Rudolph
June 23, 1940 - November 12, 1994
An American Athlete.

  1. She became a track star, going to her first Olympic Games in 1956 at age 16. She won a bronze medal in the 4x4 relay.
  2. On September 7th, 1960, in Rome, she became the first American woman to win three gold medals in the Olympics.
  3. In the year 1997, the Governor proclaimed June 23 a Wilma Rudolph Day in Tennessee.
With that shared, it is off to bed for me. I hope that you learned or gained something from this blog. Have a Great Morning. and GOODNIGHT!

The Handbook to a Successful Relationship...

I swear relationships are so hard sometimes. I just don't understand what goes through the significant others head at times. But I'm sure that they can say the same thing about me too. If I only could read your mind, and even then I'm sure relationships would be hard STILL. But hey, like they say: "The good always out weighs the BAD". And that's the truth. I have the best days with my significant other. That's how it should be at times.

I think there are a couple of things that need to happen to make a relationship a "successful relationship". There's compromising, patience, faithfulness, respect, forgiveness, togetherness, and trust which also comes with honesty and COMMUNICATION (notice I bolded the word, it's my favorite if you didn't already know; it's what I do). I'm not saying we've mastered all of these or that our relationship is PERFECT, but I think we're alright.. lol = )

So soon I'll be writing about these characteristics or qualities of a successful relationship and my opinion on what they should be and what they sometimes end up being.....

So stay tuned. = )

Once a Girl Scout...

...Once a Girl Scout Always a Girl Scout.


For some reason I am so excited to help out with Girl Scouts. The way I see it is, if you aren't doing anything else with your time then you might as well volunteer. Why not? Sitting around literally doing nothing can't be fun at all. With so much time on my hands from school being over (check out next blog for that) I'm able and liable to get into and involved in everything. Why not let it be positive. I need something to do with my time, it can't just sit around. Yes reading is fundamental, but that gets really old once you've read all the books on your book shelf. Plus its only right to get up and do something and go somewhere, at least once in a while.

I would put up a picture, but I don't even have a picture of me in girl scouts it's been so long ago.

Day 1...

This is Day 1 of recovery.. I'm trying to get back to where I use to be with blogging. = )

But not only is it day1 of recovery, it's also Day 1 of me using "Shea Moisture". Basically Shea Moisture is a line of products established in 1912. These products consist of Black Soap and homemade hair and skin essentials. Remember I am natural, so I'm definitely going to go fr the natural products. Today I used the black soap and washed and conditioned my hair with their Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention shampoo & conditioner. There is no parabens, phthalates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, animal testing, synthetic color, DEA, animal ingredients and most importantly there is no sulfates. Great for me and m hair. (and did I mention that I was 98% all natural) The name of the creator of these products goes by the name of Sofi Tucker. She made everything herself from scratch and started selling them at a village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone. By 19 years of an age the widowed mother of four children was selling all of her products all over the countryside. To find out more information about Sofi Tucker and he family or about her amazing products go to www.SheaMoisture.com.


I've been natural for a year and 5 whole months already.
I'm too excited. = ) It looks like a little ush bush... lol

But since this is day number 1 of recovery/Shea Moisture, i definitely will be checking in and letting you know how these products really work.
