Song of the Day: Open My Heart

Todays song of the day is so dear to me. This like the Donnie McClurkin song gives me chills. I love Yolanda Adams, she’s such a beautiful woman and crazy vocalist. She sings effortlessly.

The words of this song sing of hope and ask for words of Guidance. I know a lot of you can use this song so please take it in.

I’m going to dedicate it thought to one person in particular. I know it’s been rough lately but as I said earlier God is listening, He just has alot of thoughts to listen to. He’ll get to answering. Trust me. Keep your head up, despite it being hard I know you’ll pull out of the ditch. Love you.

My love through a lense

Good morning,

 

 I woke up this morning strongly believing I didn’t have to work today. Too bad I was WRONG! Oh so wrong 😦 moving right along before I get angry just thinking bout it.

 

Have you ever just went through your picture collection? Whether it be digital or a real printed pic? From time to time I do that. I love photography, its my affection. What better way to see the behavior of species than through a still picture. You capture the very essence of that moment. By my astrological sign, I’m an analyzer, therefore I’ll look at a picture past the smile or scowl. At times I feel as though I should be a body language analyst for People because in a lot of cases they are spot on. For instance, when I was with my former I remember one of my friends mentioning how sickening it was to see us in real life and pics because she could see or almost smell the love. On the same token on the ends of that said relationship the pictures we had showed what was going to be the inevitable, the end.

 

Every couple of years it seems I lose my whole picture catalogue and each time it succeeds in making me cry.  I’m so serious right now. Over thousands of pictures lost, just like that. I gained sense and put them on a hard-drive and to my luck, the hard-drive malfunctioned and there goes another couple thousand pics (no boost). I’ve lost so many different eras of me growing up. The good, the bad and the ugly *shut up, we all have our uggo phases*. That still hurts me to this day. Through pictures you can see how much you’ve changed physically year to year or even month to month.

Throughout my career as a photographer, my goal is to show beauty in things that may not necessarily be beautiful. Shine light on things that others shun upon. The cliche is so true, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I see beauty in the strangest of things, trust me if you ever saw my picture catalogue *tear* you would understand what I mean. That’s why I think there are so many photographers in the game. Everyone has a different outlook on what is unique and special and they just want the world to see it through their lense (eyes). I can’t knock that at all. I’m considered a newbie in the game but I plan to stick around a long time, I sure do. Love your craft and I believe it will love you back. You just have to know how to stroke it, ha lemme stop….

Song of the Day: Dr.Cassandra

Trini chick in the building.

 

This is a classic Soca song. Gosh, I love my soca music especially the older stuff.

 

Good luck with that

Holy moly, I’ma just say this and get it over with cause it’s been brewing in me.

I give people chances cause hey we all make mistakes but when has enough become enough?

That’s a question I ask myself all the time as formers that want to become futures come in and out of the woodworks. Now let’s talk for a second here, there are formers (ex’s, sex’s, just people you used to “talk” to) that for whatever reason you guys ended it amicably. Maybe at the time there was noone at fault and it was just something that needed to be done (distance, time issues, etc). You may have remained in contact as friends or just checked in on each other every once in awhile.  That’s stuff that can be worked upon.

However there are somethings I believe cannot be worked upon and that is disrespect! Why are you calling my phone down? Why are you sending me facebook msgs? Why are you asking my friends about me? Why are you here? and how did you get here? I mean really though. You didn’t care enough to realize that putting the Trick of the Day in place of me was a bad look. You did it and realized that this is what’s up? Holy crow, thanks for stroking my *big* ego but you can move to the left, to the left with all of that. You know what you did was real shady. You completely blew me off and didn’t even as so much check for me (while said trick(s) was keeping you busy), “now that she’s gone, you wanna come back” *cue the Destiny’s Child track*. WOW, what would have ever given you the impression that you had it like that? That’s laughable. I guess, I can give you an A for effort with the amount of times you ask me to chill and I decline. Kudos to you bro!

?!?!

I'm not telling!

I'm not telling!

 

 I’ll never tellllllll…. well maybe… for a fee…. then just maybe lol…

This is Who I Am…

“…Love me or hate me, I’m still an obsession” *cue the Lady Sovereign song*

 

Hello, my name is Aneka.

Most call me Neeks.

My alias is Datchickneeks.

I’m a Virgo. I say what’s on my mind, and don’t conform to being anyones “Yes man”. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think without speaking because when I talk I make sure my words are calculated. I’m a good listener and will listen to your problems/concerns for as long as you need me to. Some cannot handle the fact that I show them things that other people won’t, but this is me. Sometimes people are afraid to get others upset or tell them the truth. I’m not too concerned. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to hurt you but if I think you’re doing something that noone else will call you on I’m probably datchick to let you know. It’s a blessing and it’s a curse at the same time. I get it from both my grandmother and grandfather who are both Virgo’s. See a trend here? I’m loyal till I die, you ride for me and you already know I’m riding for you.

Why am I talking about this? Well it’s simple, at times I feel misunderstood like Common. As a person, I really do mean well. I feel that people don’t get that, they believe I’m trying to be a b*tch at all times. That’s so far from the truth it’s crazy. It may hurt when I say things at the time but once you sit there and think about what I said you may realize that there is some truth to it. My goal isn’t to hurt you or better yet piss you off, like you believe it’s just to open your eyes to another angle of reality. For these reasons here, it’s either you love me or you hate me. That’s how it seems to be, you can either respect my personality or think I’m a “hater” and dislike me. That’s something I’ve always had to deal with in my life. I don’t live my life trying to win a popularity contest, because people will only love that superficial aspect of you. You feed them what they want to hear so they rate you for it. What you see is what you get with Aneka. Take a little time to take in what I’m saying, or where I’m coming from. I only want the best for those around me, I mean I would expect the same from you.

Monthly’s

Good morning my loves,

I cannot sleep and I’ve been neglecting writing for a bit so hey why not blog something. 

 

Disclaimer: This post I’m writing is for my LADIES. To my fellas that are going to inevitably read this anyway, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Ladies, I know I’m not the only one that believes having a period is one of the must inhumane things that could have been done to us. Seriously God, just WHY? I believe that if we as females need to have this terrible thing every month, at least the males should have it too or even a couple times a year. They don’t have to endure childbirth but they get vetoed on a period too? Where is the justice? Some males just do not understand what this is and I don’t think they would be able to handle it if they had it. If it isn’t bad enough that we have to deal with bleeding from our private parts but some of us get it way worse than others with symptoms like:

  • Extreme Cramps. To the point where you cannot function as a regular human being
  • Back pains
  • Throwing up.
  • Changes in your mood

 

Again where is the fairness in any of that? Some of us have to take extreme measures just to ward off pain, while others don’t even get as much as a slight discomfort. As I’m writing this, I’m getting super annoyed. I DREAD this “time of the month” every month, because it ain’t pretty for me. Now I have to deal with another annoyance about my monthly, TAMPONS. Okay listen up, I’ve been wearing pads all of my life and I’ve been fine and dandy with that. However lately I’ve been forced to use Tampons and I’m still not sold on the idea.  The whole idea of it is uncomfortable and nerve wracking to me. I get my monthlys real heavy and I just don’t feel comfortable with a little thing inside my body trying to ward away embarrassment. Since I’m a newbie I also feel like I’m inserting it incorrectly. It’s a foreign object being forced to just chill in my body, not like the other foreign object that… whoops, let me just stop right here!

Group of the Day

Back to our regular scheduled program.

This group took the world by STORM. We all had our favorites, mine would rotate. I always loved Scary and Baby, but sometimes Posh or Sporty would make the list. I had the packaged post card looking pictures, I wanted the dolls (never got it), I wanted the Sketchers (got the bootlegs to it lol). I had the concert on VHS, and I sure did see the movie in theatres. If  for some crazy reason you don’t know who I’m talking about, it’s none other than The Spice Girls.  They yelled “Girl Power” with the peace sign and we all followed back. I knew the choreography to a tee, I would dance with them. They sang songs that for their target audience (Pre-teen/teenage girls) we maybe had no business singing but we sang it anyways. C’mon “I need some love, like I never needed love before… wanna make love to ya baby”. What the heck did I know about that in Grade 7?  Nothingggggg, but I sang my little heart out anyway. They have a whole catalogue of hits, and to this day I still bump them.

Here they are with some of them, I obviously can’t pick them all.

This song made no damn sense at some points and we sang it anyway lol

A Gift from Virgo

I wanted to post this on Sunday, but that clearly didn’t happen.

 

It is officially VIRGO SEASON. Get excited!

I love my fellow Virgos and coincidentally I know alot of y’all. Makes sense really, if you calculate the time we all were conceived its generally around the Christmas season (The Season of Giving LOL).

This is the breakdown on us Virgos…

 

The Virgin

August 23 to September 23

Traditional

Virgo Traits

Modest and shy

Meticulous and reliable

Practical and diligent

Intelligent and analytical

On the dark side….

Fussy and a worrier

Overcritical and harsh

Perfectionist and conservative

 

(This is a long read, so I’m sure you’ll pick and choose what you want from it…)

Virgo is the only zodiacal sign represented by a female. It is sometimes thought of as a potentially creative girl, delicately lovely; sometimes as a somewhat older woman, intelligent but rather pedantic and spinsterish. The latter impression is sometimes confirmed by the Virgoan preciseness, refinement, fastidious love of cleanliness, hygiene and good order, conventionality and aristocratic attitude of reserve. They are usually observant, shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, practical supporters of the status quo, and tend toward conservatism in all departments of life. On the surface they are emotionally cold, and sometimes this goes deeper, for their habit of suppressing their natural kindness may in the end cause it to atrophy, with the result that they shrink from committing themselves to friendship, make few relationships, and those they do make they are careful to keep superficial.

But the outward lack of feeling may, in some individuals born under this sign, conceal too much emotion, to which they are afraid of giving way because they do not trust others, nor do they have confidence in themselves and their judgments. This is because they are conscious of certain shortcomings in themselves of worldliness, of practicality, of sophistication and of outgoingness. So they bring the art of self concealment to a high pitch, hiding their apprehensiveness about themselves and their often considerable sympathy with other people under a mantle of matter-of-factness and undemonstrative, quiet reserve. They are still waters that run deep. Yet in their unassuming, outwardly cheerful and agreeable fashion, they can be sensible, discreet, well spoken, wise and witty, with a good understanding of other people’s problems which they can tackle with a practicality not always evident in their own personal relationships.

Both sexes have considerable charm and dignity, which make some male Virgoans appear effeminate when they are not. In marriage they can be genuinely affectionate, making good spouses and parents, but their love making is a perfection of technique rather than the expression of desire, and they must be careful not to mate with a partner whose sex drive requires a passion they cannot match.

They are intellectually enquiring, methodical and logical, studious and teachable. They combine mental ingenuity with the ability to produce a clear analysis of the most complicated problems. They have an excellent eye for detail but they may be so meticulous that they neglect larger issues. Also, although they are realists, they may slow down projects by being too exact.

They are practical with their hands, good technicians and have genuine inventive talents, Thoroughness, hard work and conscientiousness are their hallmarks, and they are such perfectionists that, if things go wrong, they are easily discouraged. Because of their ability to see every angle of a many-sided question, they are unhappy with abstract theorizing. Appreciating the many different points of view as they do, they find philosophical concepts difficult, and they vacillate and have no confidence in any conclusions at which they arrive.

 They have potential abilities in the arts, sciences and languages. Language especially they use correctly, clearly, consciously and formally, as grammarians and etymologists rather than for literary interests, yet they are likely to have a good memory for apt quotations.

 

 

 

Pretty much on point, of course with some considerable wrong points (well for me).
