Lol Today I’m am really digging mis sobrinos. lol They just…idk I dig how they dig me. I don’t know anyone else who will join me in the kitchen and sing and dance with me. I think my favorite thing about them is that although they are sooooo young they are constantly teaching me something new. I swear that is my key! I love people who are constantly teaching me and they are always teaching me something I never expected to learn. Besides knowing Power Rangers backwards and forwards they teach me about patience, loyalty, determination and a whole bunch of other stuff that I can’t explain.
*shrugs* Idk I’m just really digging them extra overload today. :) Who else can handle all of my craziness other than them…and unbashingly? -_- Watch when they are my age and I’m like in my thirties with this same energy and they will have been overloaded and done with their crazy auntie. Hahaha I wont have children of my own, but I’m glad I have my lovies. :D
I can just hug them up and my big chica bear hugs. I’m totally being suffocated by them laying on my tummy as I type and they watch television, but yo it’s worth it. -_- I’m just question my decision to let them do my hair lol….

I remember when I use to think tumblr was the shit...
Long time that’s been…hahaha Twitter has been my shit. All my music work is getting mad reception I guess. I need to start like getting on my grind hardcore. :DD I will after my meeting this Wednesday!! I’m so excited for Wednesday lol like I seriously can’t stop checking my e-mail. Meeting women in hip-hop has always been a dream of mine, but this is the best opportunity I have ever created for myself. Shit, I get to work on my grind and meet some of my favorite underground artist?!! Forrealz, I’m more than serious about this. That’s why my twitter is the shit!!!
I cant believe that I’ve gotten in contact with so many dope artist and deejays are following me!! Not like I went searching for them. Shit, I guess my cousin was right, people can see my dedication to the game. I’m not even trying to be a hip hop head. I just fucking love rap/hip hop. Gangsta rap is my main shit tho.
Let’s see how far I can go in this journey. I’m ready to dive in and risk it all. Ride or die chick for life.
“If we’re going to solve the problems of the world, we have to learn how to talk to one another. Poetry is the language at its essence. It’s the bones and the skeleton of the language. It teaches you, if nothing else, how to choose your words.”—Rita Dove (via monamade)

The importance of words should never be undermined. Language allows us as people to communicate and express our emotions vividly. It gives us the ability to meet new people and build relationships that we never thought were possible. If writing and speaking were never birthed into our existence then humanity would have been born with no senses at all.
“…When it comes down to it there is just far too much negativity in the world; Its like everyone got together to hold a secret meeting where they contumaciously decided that they would rather act with hate than give with love; that they would sooner stand on principle than foster change; and ultimately they would rather speak with death than think with life.”—C.B.M (via confinedbeautifulmind)
“If you are around people or energies you aren’t comfortable with, see them as offering you opportunities for spiritual growth by teaching you more about becoming transparent. The thoughts and feelings of people you have the most trouble harmonizing with are the very ones that will give you the most growth when you do learn to be transparent to them. That is why you have attracted these people into your life.”—Orin (via jaysilences)
“Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript of a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.”—Rumi (via sun-hawk)
A lot of people don't get my shit and what I'm about....
and you know that’s kool. Now that I’m older I understand. When people aren’t feeling me and my shit, it clues me into their lameness and how they are on that ordinary tip. Yes, it highlights my differences, but at the same time idgaf and I LOVE BEING DIFFERENT.
I’m learning how to notice and accept people’s understanding and praise of my difference. Like the bro and I just got this new home, she’s dope yo! Lol jic you’re reading this we think you’re dope!! lol. Okay well yeah and like the bro was telling me how she was disappointed that we (the bro and I) couldn’t go to the Schoolboy Q concert with her because we were broke. Lol and then yesterday we each stumbled upon some dough. She was going with because our energy is the shit! She was telling her how much energy I have. lol I never expected that from her so I really was like awed by that compliment. Especially since I go through a lot of discrimination being as hyped as I am.
Straight after we had finished talking about the concert, the bro and I went to the cafeteria of our college and saw some black people at this table in the middle of the caf. Well they aren’t our friends, we’ve never spoken to them or the majority of the rest of the black population. It’s like she and I stick out on our campus. We walk around the campus and the black kids our age just look at funny or like fucked up. We think they think we’re snobby. I mean if not being about some lame shit makes us snobby then yeah I’m the snobbiest. She and I were just chilling in the cafeteria listening to rap and talking about the music. So yeah we both were getting hyped! We weren’t disturbing anyone else or getting in their way. We had our lil bubble of space and stayed there. If someone can’t keep their eyes on their own lame ass conversation, it’s not our fault that we stay on hype mode when together. So like who the fuck are you to judge us?? I refuse to simmer down just because some people are uncomfortable with the way I act and behave.Excuse me, but when you start paying my bills and getting my shit together then maybe you can have some say in my endeavors, but until people want to fork over some shit, don’t talk shit about me and my shit.
Last night the bro and I went to this jazz concert in Bevelry Hills. First off it was an adventure getting there and back. Just going to say that! The rest of the details can be connect the dots. lmao I’ll just say my whole body is sore af from the bus rides and all the walking. Plus, we stay hype. smh
Okay well I have to write a music review on this concert for my jazz class, so I had to talk to the musicians and get some information. I spoke to the band leader and he gave me some insightful information about the band & their gigs. Then he asked me like what I’m going to school for. I told him I’m majoring in African American studies and I’m deciding whether or not to major in Women’s Studies or music. Then later on this year I’m going to the Air Force. lol I don’t know what about that was so interesting because he was like wow. He asked me another question and was like Oh I’m not like quizing you or putting you on the spot, you just seem really interesting. Lol To say the least I was totally flattered. lol I have like mad respect for jazz musicians and this dude was doing the damn thing and was mad chill so it was really amazing to hear all these things from him and get complimented. We ended up talking about my enlistment, women’s studies and black feminism. It was a really chill little conversation. Then he had to get back to playing. He came back to talk to me for his next song break about the music and the pianist who came to take over his spot. Then he met the bro. It was just really chill.
See people who know what’s up, like me. When they get my shit and feel what I’m about they know. However, I feel sorry for those people who don’t get it. I use to feel odd for seeing the world the way that I do, now I’m empowered by it. I can’t help it that my eyes and mind are working progressively at a more mature level than my peers. I’m not going to apologize for being 18, but working and living like I’m in my twenties. I can’t help that people my own age generally annoy the fuck out of me, so I’m always around people in their twenties. That’s just who I am.
I’ve been so absorbed trying to figure out why I can’t relate to people my own age that I haven’t fully had the chance to live this out. Well I am. And it’s funny while I’ve been thinking “OMG. I’m 18 and doing yadyaydada. Living the bohemian Renaissance woman life I imaginged to live in my twenties.” I just realized yesterday that I’m going to be 19, very soon. lol Time just flies when you’re getting your shit together.
