it's official that everyone in this worl has pissed me off in some way or another during the past week or two.

i'm in the absolute worst mood.

it's gotten to the point where my fibro's flaring and i'm having anxiety attacks.

call me selfish, but i've stopped giving a shit about everyone else.

i'll be gone for a while--or at least until i feel better.

midterms starting tomorrow! i should be studying, but i’m not. instead, making a stop at procrastination station.

sasha and i hung out on thursday. starbucks, as usual. [at least for me] naquan left about an hour into our visit, but we were busy planning sasha’s twenty first birthday party, so we stayed. the joke of the night: i hold weight because i get free coffee. i died laughing. then we got barked on my professor chime after class for talking. that was even funnier.

friday, i re-cut my hair. not much, just a little off the top to add that extra spike that was there when i first got the cut done. then i walked around the house with a homemade mayo conditioner in my hair, while i cooked mac and cheese and fried chicken. by 5pm, the pre-shoot rituals began: i ate my last meal, went to work on my hair, and packed the essentials.

i shot with carl chislom yesterday at loft 406, the yume space. barber razors and dark makeup made for an interesting concept. his wife and image consultant, priya, was a doll. i wouldn’t mind working with them again. my darling sasha has another shoot under her stylist belt: bcbg and steve madden. the shoot was pretty simple and short; we were in and out in less than two hours. naquan was supposed to come after he got off work at 6:45, but we finished before then, so i headed back up there to meet him. it was the typical bus ride home: starbucks in hand, him holding me, and us talking about whatever could come to mind.

things are going good between us, and i'm in no position to complaing. that's just the way i like it.

when i got home last night, i ate and laid in bed. i’ve been in bed ever since. i love days off. i laid in bed and ate homemade sticky rice and baked macaroni and cheese. weird combination, i know, but that’s what happens when your mother’s a caribbean chink. i ate a lot today. no shoots for about a week or two, and yesterday left me famished.

hAPPY biRfDAY to my ciara--october 29th. we’ve been down for each other since we were five. we have our moments where we want to stab each other, but she’s damn near family to me. nothing will ever change that.



cory b.! she’s blonde! and losing weight! of course, i love the skinny people more. she did the party city corporate halloween party last night. cyndi lauper was in the house!


back to studying...after i eat again =]

a bored attempt at this thing called glam . . .

skirts and heels and shit. this is all still somewhat new to me.

#146

the day we've all been waiting for is here. [not so much you guys, just me]

i can officially say the days of crying over how much of a bastard robert really is are over. i've picked up the pieces if my life to a point where i can say my tears have dried on their own. just a little over a month ago, the sound of his name or hearing people talk about what he did to me would make me bursts out into tears. i've recently had a conversation like those before with the babaloo [kay], and there wasn't a well-filled eye, not a single tear drop, or even an urge. that's a big step for my over-emotional being. i spoke to his cousin, danny, the other day [don't remember if i ever mentioned him before] and the conversation went well. the last time we spoke, it was him giving me the news of his beloved cousin not being dead, but in allentown because something happened with his dumb bitch of a baby's mother & darling zion. so now he's living at his dad's [since darling nana kicked his ass out] and he has zion with him. zion needs his father around, so i'm definitely not upset about that. but as kay said, he's not a real man, which makes him incapable of doing the right thing and telling me the deal.

but c'est la vie.

kay's saying i have a real man in my life who's treating me the way a real man would treat his lady. people are probably saying that i'm only having this feeling of relief because naquan [or any man for that matter] is around. be your accusations true or not, i do not, in the least bit, care to take your feelings, thoughts, and views into consideration. i've said this time and time again, and i can't stress it enough: it's my life and i will make plenty of mistakes that i can only learn from. things are bound to get screwed in my life, but what doesn't kill me will only make me stronger.

the last label for robbie.

goodbye's are forever . . .




max payne was kinda sorta wack =)

#141

i woke up about an hour ago. now i'm wide awake. i straightened my hair, downing another turkey sandwich, and watching real world/road rules. i have class at 2pm, then picking up naquan from work at 4pm.


umm...so to finish the last post.


things between naquan and me are slowly progressing. if he's not busy being a sweetheart and a total gentleman, he's got me cracking up, talking about freakishly dark people sweating mud and crying oil. he treats me good, and everything's not so serious all the time. we can have pointless conversations on the phone, or just sit there in silence until one of us pops up with a random thought. he's never complained about taking me home at night. i've never had to ask him to, which is great. he walks me to my door every night. que cute.


kay approves of him. we were at his job on monday for about three hours. he made us [well, me] a whole bunch of drinks, and kay and i just sat there and talked a bunch of bullshit and reflected on my last failed relationship and how naquan's proven already that he's more of a man than robert will ever be.

about to lay down until i knock out . . .

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

#140

so i'm laying in bed after a long day of running around. a pointless trip to the doctor's office, a class that i was in for literally fifteen minutes because of the pointless trip to the doctor's office, going to work, only to get cut, but still be in the store to wait for naquan, who i called and rushed to get to soho four hours before he was originally supposed to get there. the economy's shot to hell. now these bastards want to fuck with my money.

i got a B on massa's quiz! go me!

i'll finish this tomorrow. headache kicking in.

#134

day sixty three

baby shower!
i love my shanice . . .

#133

text a blog. i started this on saturday, i just never got around to posting it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

i'm on my way to shanice's baby shower. totally running on colored people time, when i'm usually unnecessarily early for everything.

so thursday night's first date was a success. yes, naquan had me waiting, but mta wasn't on his side, and the rest of the date defnitely made up for it. the first stop was the pool hall in park slope. apparantly, i'm not that bad at it. i hate making myself look like an ass, but it didn't feel too bad. and of course, i had on heels. then we strolled to nana. i had a serious craving for sushi, and he liked it. most guys aren't open to trying new things, so i was very please with his reaction. then we took the train to the museum and stood on the little bridge thingie at the top and talked. at about 11pm, we headed to the bus and he took the whole ride home with me. he walked me to my door, made sure i got in, all that good stuff. i couldn't have asked for a better first date.

of course, my mother being the mother she is, says every negative thing she can in reference to me dating. the funny part was her asking if music would have a problem with me seeing someone else. my mother's old fashioned, i guess she doesn't understand the concept of casual dating. but she got over it. at least i think she did. we spoke about the date itself a little more openly this morning as i ate my left over pad thai. she was a little more positive than usual, which is always good thing when it comes to this woman. she wants to meet him. scary thought, but it might not be so bad.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

so yesterday was a weird day. no work, but i did have a serious talk with music about why things are the way they are between us. it’s confusing, and things aren’t looking to good—at least on my end. i always said if things took a turn for the worst between us, i wouldn’t be bitter about it. c’est la vie.

so my sunday was spent out of the house. i couldn’t stay home. after that talk, i had to leave; staying in the house, in my room, in my bed, would just eat away at me. my original plan was to go to the promenade. a phone call changed those plans. i ended up at washington square park with some very nice company. naquan and i walked from soho to union square, to flat iron, to chelsea, to midtown. we had pizza at palermo on spring and stopped at a million stores—which were all closed since it was 8pm on a sunday night. then he took me home, and the nosey little girl next door saw as he kissed me goodnight.

i don’t know what the plan for today is. we’ll see what comes up . . .

#129

it's ridiculous how i'm feeling right now. as i sit on my living room floor with a heavy heart, i try to understand why life's complexes are the way they are.

i'm in pain: emotionally, not so much psychically--for once.

they way i am, the way i was raised, leaves me in a position where i'm open and ready and willing to love and give whole heartedly. the men in my life, at the drop of a dime; i'll do anything for, and by the way i treat them, they know. sometimes, i surprise myself with the lengths i'd go to make someone happy. i think people take me for granted. i've probably said that before, but the notion still remains. i look at people and their relationships and their love lives, and i swear, i'd give anything for a piece of what they have. why can't i be taken care of, the way i've taken care of so many others. i don't need it, but i want it more than anything. i know my life isn't perfect right now, but the feeling of being cared for would make this so much easier . . .

#128

day sixty

this is my disappointed yet again face.

so i basically waited for music for five fuckin' hours, dressed and ready, and he calls to tell me he got caught up.
