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.
