The BIG move!

 So, about a month and a half ago, I made a big change in my life, I MOVED! Who would have thunk it? Everyone kept saying "You're never gonna leave." I didn't think I was going to leave, it never even crossed my mind, but I did...and it was the BEST decision I've ever made.

Pieces Of Me...



"These are the pieces of me.."
There are so many layers, and underlying layers to this woman we call Jasmine. It's taken me a long to take all of these pieces, group them together and become the woman that I am. There has been plenty of help along the way, I would NEVER be the woman I am, and destined to be, without that help. It's been a very long, and grueling journey, and right now, I feel I am at a crossroads. I've given myself away to God, and it's like, my journey is starting all over again. It's amazing and scary at the same times. Most times, I don't know which way I am going, up, down, left, or right, but I just keep going, praying that it is the direction God has laid out for me. The pieces of me include my mind, body, heart and soul. They all connect together and become ME, but sometimes, they break away, and I am not the same person because my pieces have been torn apart. Together, nothing can break me, apart, I am not Jasmine...

Why you will never sip my "Sweet Tea"

Thirsty?
So, lately I've been having some issues. Some real, grown woman issues! I mean, it's getting bad. I've already written about my celibacy, and dudes coming out the woodwork, so why are they STILL trying? I've decided to do a sex week where I've asked different people about different subjects. Today's subject: Why you will never sip my sweet tea...

The Joy of Men: Musician's Interlude

As we all know, I am a lover of chocolate men! OOOH Chile, yes!! I've done a blog on Chocolate Men before, but I decided to revamp and do a Musicians Interlude. I am a huge lover of music, and some musical artists are just fine as all get out!!! So, check out my picks and tell me what you think! (You can click their names for their twitter pages!)

Out the woodwork...

I do this a lot...LOL
So, it's summer, right? This is usually the time people really don't want to be in a relationship, correct. Too many options out there, plus...IT'S HOT!!! Now, I am a woman, through and through, so being in a relationship in the summer doesn't bother me, but I know it bothers guys. Especially with all the half-naked women roaming around for them to get at. I understand. I really enjoy going to the basketball courts to see fine, thick chested men, with basketball shorts on, getting all sweaty and stuff..ummmhmmm...Let me get back on the subject at hand...

New Artist: Aaron Camper

He is sooo fine! (Just had to say that!)
So, as you all know, I am a huge fan of new artists, especially those who have outstanding talents. Well, in recent months, I've come across a young singer/songwriter named Aaron Camper. Thanks to my cuzzo Britt I haven't stopped listening to his mixtape!

Celibacy Thang...




"This here celibacy thing, Lawd, just got something over me"
With those lyrics, Jill Scott said it best!!! This is what I am feeling right now. Being celibate is not easy, at all! I've made this decision for myself. I wanted more for myself, and being "non-sexual" was a good route for me.

I'm back!!!







Wassup everyone?!? Your favorite weirdo is BACK!! Did you miss me? *crickets* Well dang...I thought we were better than that!!! So, seriously, y'all didn't miss me? Y'all know I can be sensitive...*goes to cry in my tea*

Would've Been The One..



I'm a woman who loves a variety of different men. I've dated all different types and varieties. I even talked to a Caucasian guy for about a week! That was really out of my comfort zone, but hey, at least I tried it! In my dating experiences, which don't amount to much because I hate dating, I've come across guys who could have possibly been the one, but my picky self, there was ALWAYS something wrong!

26 Years...

On Thursday, March 31st, I celebrated my 26th birthday. I was surrounded by people that I absolutely and truly love with all of my heart, and those who I know feel the same. This has been one of the best birthdays I have in a very long time. Usually, I feel like I really don't want to do anything, and I just want to be by myself. This year, I felt free.

Music: I STILL love Her...


My whole entire life, music has had a profound effect on my entire being. Music is like that female friend that you have. We all know how catty females can be. You have that love-hate relationship with them. Although they can do you wrong, and tell all of your business, you can't help but love her. You can't help but want to listen to all her problems, give her advice, and then tell her off for telling your business. You still love her, even through all of her faults...

The "Hood Rat" Epidemic

So for the past year, I have used the term "hood rat" or "rat" a lot. For some reason, there seems to be an uproar of them. We have always had, the "ghetto girls," heck, Bow Wow even made a song for them to make them feel special. But, when did it become an "okay" thing to be one? Why are groupies, who I also call "rats" glorified for their groupie-ish and rat-ish ways? Why are we no longer looking up to figures like, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, or Maya Angelou. What happened to those girls?

Keeping the faith during trying times...


For the past week, things have been hard for me. For some reason, old emotions, old feelings, old EVERYTHING are being bought back to my life with such a force, it is hard for me to keep up. I've been having issues with my diet, like everything is getting to me. This isn't me. I am happy, joyful, I can't have these trying times, but right now, I am...and it is taking it's toll on me.

No Means No: Why I hate dating

So, I am not the strongest advocate for dating. Let's just say, I haven't had the most amazing times with dating. Don't get me wrong, I've had some good ones, but the bad ones have far outweighed the good.

Top Male R&B Artists With NO Vocal Talents!


Tyrese Twitter rant on male r&b singers. #DAH
 So, I have a complete disdain for artists who have made it to the top, with no vocal talents! It annoys me. I went in on the women, Top Female Artist With No Vocal Talents, but I definitely can't leave the men out! Some of them sound worse than the females, and I just can't! It is definitely time for me to get a good rant on. (Haven't had one in a while) Some of you may agree, some you may not, either way, I'm always right, so "FORGET YOU!" (in my cee-lo green from munchkin land voice)

The CraigLewis Band Album Review


After everyone constantly asking "When does the album drop?" The CraigLewis Band has finally dropped their much anticipated album! This album is full of funk, r&b, soul, hip hop, and so much more on one album! I can't get enough of it. It is an album that has been much needed! Tired of listening to "sex music?" Tired of the same old tired music? Well guess what, CraigLewis has give us that and so much more!!

Anti-Valentine's Day Songs (Part 1)

So, like so many others, I will be spending Valentine's Day ALONE! I enjoy the alone time. I will actually be spending mine this year, watching gangster movies! (Don't judge me!) Valentine's has always been just another day for me, even when I wasn't single. I don't feel all mushy and romantic, or anything like that. I don't want to have sex, (which most guys think they are entitled to on this "special" day.) I just wanna chill, eat popcorn, and watch movies. I don't want to be bothered honey. For the past 3 years, I have actually worked on V-day, by choice. I'd much rather make money off of all of you "love birds" rather than spend mine. So, in honor of this special occasion, I have compiled a list of anti-valentine's day songs, just for you guys!! Enjoy!

Double Standards

Was having a conversation with a friend, and double standards came about. We were watching Marsha Ambrosius' video "Far Away," and he asked , "Why couldn't it be two women?" I replied, "What does it matter, they are both homosexual. He said, "It's different, we don't want to see that. It's a double standard." For the life of me, I will never understand why it is so convenient for men to use the term "double standards," whenever it suits them.

The CraigLewis Band: New Single "Real Life"

As you all know, I am  HUGE fan of The CraigLewis band! A few days ago, they posted on twitter that they would be releasing a new single entitle "Real Life." So, to say that I was excited is an understatement. I've been trying to get a song of theirs on my iPod for a MONTH!!

Runaway


Sometimes, you just have to call YOURSELF out and with Kanye West's "Runaway" I knew exactly what he meant. I have gone through most of my life being happy, and a social butterfly. But, I wasn't always the nicest person, at all. I had no problem telling people off and not apologizing. Apologize for what? I always felt like I was right, so there was no need to apologize. As I got older, I realized how wrong and rude I was.

Why everyone always "hating" on my "swag"?


So, @Bossip posted on Twitter today: "Do you guys feel like people throw the word "hater" around too much?" And I replied "Hater is going down with other words like "Swag"...ugh" and they asked the question " Is swag really gone?" I vote "Yes" on issue swag/hater! There are so many people who toss these words around on a daily basis and don't know the definition of them, and they don't describe them! Then they going around saying "You just hatin on my swag!" First off, who are this imaginary "haters," and what "swag?"

Black History Month: Embracing "US"

The month of February is a time where we celebrate "US" as a people. We celebrate those who have, and still are helping to uplift our race. It is a time where think about where we are in this life, and how we got here. It is also a time where we teach our sons and daughters about our history. It is a time that is all "OURS"

The Craig Lewis Band

I am always for amazing new artists and music. I am a music fanatic with a very critical ear. That may come from going to a school for the arts and then constantly telling me to watch this, or watch that, when all I wanted to do was sing some Mariah Carey!  With the uprisal of 1 hit wonders, and all the dance craze movements like "Ricky Bobby," "The Dougie," and who can forget "The Soulja Boy," we tend to forget new artists who actually have talent. We tend to forget that there are artists out their who have honed their craft to be great, and love it, and not just try to make money off of one song, i.e. Kim Zolciac! In the mix, I found...well...they were already out, ok, I happened upon a musical group called "The CraigLewis Band," and well let's just say, they don't have an album, but I can't stop listening!

The Game (More of my thoughts...)


So, everyone knows that I am a fan of the tv show "The Game." When I heard that it was coming back, I was excited. Yea, I was on the fence about it because it was coming out on BET. BET hasn't had a good show in a while, and my skepticalness was running full speed. Well, I guess I should have listened to my inner self, because BET has screwed up a show that was once amazing!

R-E-S-P-E-C-T (find out what it means to me!)

                                        
Lately, I have been saying over and over, I wish that I could make up the things that happen to me. Like seriously, some of the things people say and do, to me, they have to be made up. This is not real, it is all a nightmare. I wake up the next day and realize, no J., that really happened to you. It wasn't some elaborate though process that are in the back of ur miniscule brain, no you were wide awake! How can this be?

Real Housewives of Atlanta: January 23, 2011


So, let me be honest here, I am a reality tv junkie. To the point where, I have recently began to watch "Jersey Shore." WOWZERS!! But, The ladies of RHOA have taken over my Sunday nights. Hell, they have taken over my life for the past 3 years! I absolutely LOVE this show, because...basically...they are all CRAZY! I like the drama, the laughs, the Girl-Boy Girlfriends, EVERYTHING! Tonights episode left me with so many questions...

So, am I really a boy?




So, for the past month, I have heard "J., ur a boy" so many times, I could choke someone. Now, I have always been a little tomboy-ish, but I had never been called a boy! LOL. My sister keeps saying it, and I am like...No I'm not! So, I've compiled a list of things I like to do...but does it make me a boy? ( I don't think so!)

So, you thought he/she was gonna stay? You's a fool shawty!

So, in my short life, I have learned so many things about men. I have also learned that a lot of men and women think alike. Yes, you have the old adage that women are emotional and men are physical. But, things have definitely changed, it's 2011 for pete's sake! Women are no longer sitting back waiting on their prince charming, they are out there looking for him, spitting game to him, loving and leaving them, shacking up with no commitment, just like males have been known to do for so long. So, you find yourself with a new boo (male or female), which is cool, maybe even think it may go further than the "boo-thang" stage, so you ignore the signs and that rumble in your stomach telling you something is off. Well, if you think he/she is going to stay...you's a fool shawty!

Top Female Artists with NO vocal talents!


In the music industry today, all I see is plastic barbies. "Perfect" faces, "Perfect" hair, "Perfect" bodies. With all of the this "perfection" being constantly enhanced, there is no need to worry about how they sound. As long as you "look good," there is really no need to have much talent at all. Long gone are the days where you had to pack a powerhouse voice for someone to even listen to you, let alone buy your record/album/cd. Nowadays with the uprisal of music being made in a studio instead of real using real instruments, and of course auto-tune, there is no need for you to be able to sing at all.

The Game (My Thoughts)

So, my favorite tv show "The Game' premiered tonight, and what a ride they took us on! At first thought, there was a lot going on in the show, but of course at the end...everything EXPLODED! I am going to have to do a rundown on each character!

Why I want to marry Lavell William Crump!!



I have always had a thing for strong, intelligent, black men. I've been spoiled in my life because I grew up around those types of men, including my brothers. I have a host of uncles who have set this same example, so of course, the man that I want has to be all of those, plus more. I think I have finally found him, and so, I think I want to marry him!

Women are "F-ed" up!

                              
As we all know, women are emotional creatures by nature. Of course we have the ones that "Act" like they have no feelings, but we all know the truth. Regardless if you "act" like you don't care, and you have your "fuck the world" mentality, everyone knows,  you do care. Why? To put it bluntly, because you are a woman. It is your very being to be emotional. Because of this, we are fucked up!

Marsha Ambrosius "Far Away" video (Stop Bullying)



I was doing my daily run on different sites, and on Bossip.com I was able to view Marsha Ambrosius new video "Far Away". The song itself is absolutely beautiful, but the video will probably raise more attention than the song itself.

Why am I still single?



A few years ago, I was on Youtube, (which I am on, like...everyday...#dontjudgeme), and I came across a video of Kim Fields reciting poetry. At first, I was like...umm...Regine? Really? But, being the curious, weird person that I am, I went ahead and watched. Needless to say, the video ended up on my Myspace page (Yea, like really, #dontjudgeme), I loved it that much. For some reason today, I thought about that video, I hadn't thought about it in so long, but i rememberd that, I am single, and I was wondering why.

The Joy of Chocolate Men...


I have a thing for men...plain and simple! I have flown back and forth between the light skinned to the dark skinned men. As a weird youngster, I was IN LOVE with Romeo from Immature. He was my boo until the 7th grade, that's when I went to a School for the Arts. Yea, now you guys see why I am so weird, but anywho, that's where I discovered my love for brown skinned men. Yes LAWD, they were everywhere! By the time I hit high school, that all changed and the dark skinned brotha was, oooh...it was the lips and the eyes, and the bodies! Whoo! Yes, I was in heaven. As I have aged, I have learned to accept and love all men and their different skin tones. At the point I am now, I absolutely love a nice chocolate man! They have the strong african features that I love. The eyes, and the wide noses and full lips...ooh..I just almost went on another subject, but I am going to stay on them this time! So, I compiled a list of my favorite chocolate men, including a few honorable mentions! Enjoy!

Jamie Foxx and "The Worst Night to Listen to My CD (Which is Every Night)"

So, usually you are supposed to start off these blogs with a nice introductory about yourself and what you want to do, where you wanna go, and blah, blah, blah! Since I am your friendly weirdo, I start things off differently. Every now and then, ok, a lot I will fill you in on new and old music because I am a music fanatic. First up: Jamie Foxx's lastest foolishness "The Best Night of my Life"

*If you haven't listened to the album, which I don't suggest you do, this post is a buzz kill...but so is the album..so..hey...anywho..procede..*
