Melba's Resturant

I went to Melba's restaurant to celebrate my graduation. the place is really small and intimate. Dimly lit with soulful music playing in the background. The look of the place was nice and comfortable.. The food was delicious ESPECIALLY the mac and cheese. My only problem was it took a while for someone to come to our table to get out "comfortizer" order. Then when we asked for something else ( more mac, more drinks, etc) it usually took us asking more then once.

Pull Your damn pants up!!!

Yesterday while going to the store i come across these to people, a man and a woman, the man is walking with his shirt up ( it was a bit hot). This reveled his pants, they were underneath his but cheeks YES underneath. His dingy blue boxer- brief pants were showing for all to see. he was walking with his legs so wide and looked like a complete jack ass. I dont understand why guys do this. I don't understand even more how that female could walk along side him. I can not and will not be seen in the street with someone who feels the need to wear their pants so low. That's just tacky, and it looks very uncomfortable. I really hate seeing this... uggggg

The true definition of a "friend"

This is something i feel many people misconstrue. Knowing someone for x amount of years does not automatically make someone your friend. Hanging out with someone on ocassion ( specifically on at the club) does not make some one automatically your friend. Actually let me rephrase... does not make someone automatically MY friend. I have many people in my life but a very limited about of friends. My true friends and i are really nothing like one another ( odd right). I think that's what keeps the friendship thriving. The idea that we are almost completely different YET we still have a strong connection.
My friends
have been through think and thin with me.
The don't judge me even if they may disagree with me.
They know me better then anyone ( or so they think, lol).
They know i am the PMS queen, my attitude is a mile a minute but my love is quadruple that.
Makes the same sacrifices for me that I make for them.
Keeps me sane and level headed
Tells me the truth even when they know i may NOT want to hear it.
Doesn't turn their back on me even when i make them mad
I love my Friends very few people get that title. My friends are my extended family.

Just thinking

As i sit here i think about the boundaries i had to jump in my life and the many that i still am in the process of jumping. I wonder how my life would be if..., there is always an if. I am greatful that i never had to struggle even when i have had my LOW days. I am grateful that I have a mom who supports any and every decision I have made. As times go on I can only see things getting better. i live my life to make my sons future better then my past and my moms life easier. The day i buy my mom a house will be the best day of my life. The funny thing is, I think more about buying her a house then i do for my self.

I have given up shopping for a month,

Maybe even longer. The only exception is if some CL's go on sale, lol. is it bad i refuse to pay full price for them? i will pay 300,330 tops, i have to be realistic especially seeing how i am not a repeat offender with shoes very often.

Ok, back on topic. I am trying to save. I want to move again by September and this time it will be more permanent. My landlord is a prick and i want OUT!!! Also, there are many more things i want to do. Opening my business is one of them things and I want to get a loan for as small of an amount as possible.
So save i will... Pray for me...

hello my name is.... and im a shopaholic....

Life taken so early...smh.

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A 21-year-old up-and-coming rapper was fatally shot Monday afternoon at a popular mall in Los Angeles.

Rap artist Dolla arrives at the Soul Train Music Awards in Pasadena, California, on March 10, 2007.

Rap artist Dolla arrives at the Soul Train Music Awards in Pasadena, California, on March 10, 2007.

Dolla, whose real name is Roderick Anthony Burton II, was shot in the head about 3:10 p.m. at the Beverly Center, his publicist said.

Police later detained a person at the Los Angeles International Airport, said city police spokeswoman Karen Raynar.

Further details were not immediately available about the shooting.

Dolla, who was based in Atlanta, Georgia, was in Los Angeles recording his debut album.

He caught the attention of multiplatinium R&B singer Akon when the then-12-year-old Dolla was performing with friends at showcases around Atlanta.

The two collaborated on Dolla's first single, "Who the F--- Is That?" which also featured another high-profile singer, T-Pain.

Another Dolla song, "Feelin' Myself," appeared on the soundtrack to the 2006 movie "Step Up."

According to his MySpace page, Dolla was born in Chicago, Illinois. His twin sister died at birth because of complications from an enlarged heart.

The family moved to Atlanta after Dolla's father committed suicide while he, then 5, and another sister watched from their parents' bed, the Web page said.

Dolla began composing rhymes in elementary school and decided to pursue a career in music.

Funeral services, which will be held in Atlanta, will be announced later, publicist Sue Vannasing said.


Uhhh yeah so i look a little crazy in the freeze frame,lmao

Rick ross gets called out for wearing FAKE shades smh

Rick Ross recently covered the hip hop & rap magazine XXL sporting a pair of glasses, well now it’s causing problems, so much that Louis Vuitton contacted XXL. In a letter, Louis Vuitton not only says the glasses aren’t Loui V, but they didn’t give Rick Ross permission to use their logos.
Dear Editor:

We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks. Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.

The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks. The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to correct the confusion.

When family is Just that...

At times i envy the lives and family of others. The function that they have. the togetherness that I see. That is something I feel is lacking in my family. Dysfunction 101. I love the member that belong but many i do not like. At times I feel like an outcast because I have different ideals and ideas of life. I strive to be the opposite of what i witnessed growing up. I strive to give my son the best and to have the best role models in his life. My mother is my #1 role model. She has always done her best to put family first even the the fires and storms. She has the biggest heart in the world and with out her I wouldn't be where I am.
Is there a law somewhere that says family must be friends? A phone call here and there, a visit now and again but i don't think i can have too much of various members. Some are only meant to love from a distance. *sigh* does that make me a bad person?

Why am I up so early?

My eyes are burning and i am pissed off. Sports center is playing in the back ground saying the same things over and over. Manny is a fool maybe his locks were to heavy, Farve needs to stay retired. I hope My new crush ( don't ask why) Ron Artest trips Kobe tonight, but in a way that he doesnt get in trouble. I wonder who else is gonna get slapped in the back of their head? I'm sure he is probably pissed but that slap was FUNNY, maybe not so much to him or house b/c he got suspended and house looked like a punk, but according to sports center " a professional",lol.

My fohawk

I don't braid very close to the edges because that's how one gets a receding hair line ( my hair is thinner there, the more i stress it the more likely it is to break off) and I DO NOT WANT. So I try to braid as close as i can to the edge but not so much.

I saw teh funniest thing today Buti dont think i should have been laughing

I was on the bus coming home from a very long day of shopping and stuff. I look out the bus window and there was a man in a wheel chair, next to him was a woman holding his hand. This woman was walking really fast. The man in the wheel chair was trying to keep up using one leg to assist him in moving the wheel chair. Now i found it funny b/c i was confused as to why she wasn't PUSHING the chair instead of holding his hand.
am i going to hell ( insert nervous face)

I am on a new hair Journey

My hair journey is not going to be easy... I have decided to go natural. NOW when i say natural i mean no chemicals... I will still be weaving and wigging it up. At this moment I am going to transition. I decided on this after much thought. I really want to do a big cut but i will see how well I will transition. As of now my hair is BSL (bra strap length) when blown out ( which is rare). By September i should be able to decide if i want to cut it all off, really short.
Wish me luck!

Men , I find them to be so funny

SO the other day i went out for the first time in a month. It was for a very good reason. A friend i have known for years is getting his masters so I had to fo it was well worth it. Anyway i planned on leaving early but decided against it b/c i was having so much fun. When the end of the night came i exited alone ( i actually came alone... whoaaaaaaaaa,lol)

I get outside walk to the corner to flag a cab and this guy approaches me, he was about 5 feet tall and not attractive, telling me how he wants to take me shopping and such. i looked at him and rolled my eyes thinking this would make him want to leave, well he didn't. I think it actually turned him on ( freak). He kept coming up to me, I told him he was too close and to back up, while we were there another guy approaches and kindly excuses the other guy, he then complemented my shoes (which caught my attention). Anyway the guy starts talking to me. I walk to hale a cab (which was hell). so the guy and I talk for a while he says he is single, blah, blah, blah. In the middle of the convo he slips and says "my girl is...". I look at him and say " why did you feel the need to lie? you werent going to get anywhere and now you just lost what could have been a good friend b/c you lied." He was stuck with a stupid look on his face and then tried to explain himself, of course i didnt want to hear it.
I honestly dont understand men, I feel liberated that when I meet me I express to them my stand on "relationships" at this moment. I enjoy saying im dating me, and am happier then i have ever been.
