SOTD: Upgrade Ya

Tying into my previous post, there is no way this couldn’t have been song of the day.

This was the FIRST song I fell in love with off of this album B’Day. I remember around the time the video dropped, everyone had their bullshit rumors swirling around that they broke up. When she dropped this video, at the point where Jay-Z starts to rap everyone was like “see see, he’s not even in it…” then they were shamed one scene after. The strength of a relationship is never truly known by the outside world looking in it. Unless you see things firsthand everyday, everything else is just speculation.

Who’s Mad?

Upgrade Ya- Beyoncé feat. Jay-Z

Hiiiii baby 🙂

Throughout the time that I’ve had this blog, I’ve talked about many aspects of Love. The highs and lows and ins and outs of it. Looking back (and reading back) I’ve had my share of L’s with Love. When you’re going through it, it seems like it’s the worst thing that could have happened, after awhile you realize it was just to make way for something better. People always asked me why I held out so long and stayed single, I always answered with “getting a boyfriend isn’t hard” and I still stick by my answer. Getting a GOOD one is hard and getting a hard one is quite good (jokes… well not really).

*prays my family isn’t reading this…*

I digress.

I always told myself I was doing it for a reason, I just knew it. Throughout the way, I know people thought the real reasons why I was single were:

 a) I had some kind of issue and Men couldn’t put up with me

 b) I’m picky 

 c) I’m a total Looney Toon.

That’s fine though, people will always have their own opinion but I knew my worth. Losers in life have a special way of making you feel like you’re the problem when really they are. The fact that I now know for sure I wasn’t waiting in vain all this time has me smirking heavily. God has a funny way of placing people in your life at the correct moments. Needless to say my moment came and I was ready, word to Alicia Keys.

It’s a blessing to be matched with your equal, my efforts and everything I do is reciprocated. THAT is a word that has been missing. ReciprocityIt’s one thing to do nice things for someone and have certain feelings for them, but once it’s given back to you? There’s no better feeling.

My friends and family are happy for me, and that makes me feel good. The pouring in of love from some of you has been overwhelming. Thank You. 

To the fake “friends”/acquaintances/Stalkers from a distance  that wish that this doesn’t last, cause you’re as bitter those other members of Destinys Child. You push us to stay stronger. Like how I did that huh? Put “us” to remind you that not only are you bitter, but you’re probably lonely too? *winks*

 To the males that have hit me up with their “Sorry for 2010” a la Ruben Studdard, you’re late as usual.  The fact that you thought I would be around forever is comical at best. Scratch my name off of your never-ending roster, cause I’m a starting player already.

Right now my heart is full and it’s interesting that I never had a “checklist” before but now I’ve realized that he has every.last.check on it.

Funny how that works huh?

❤ 

 

It’s very seldom that you’re blessed to find your equal, still play my part and let you take the lead role, believe me–   BEY!

Whip it real good.

Just watched this video and snapped.

A couple people came to mind while watching: Charlene, Sajae, Chantea.

This little girl just slayed the game with this performance. It looks some of the choreo for “Whip My Hair” with original pieces added.

 Get your life.

Fresh Princess

I’m a little late on this, but oh well… I do what I want.

By now, you must have seen Willow Smiths (Will Smith + Jada Pinkett Smith’s child) video for her banger “Whip My Hair”.  Doesn’t it just make you want to dance? She’s only 9 and already has so much personality.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way. Is it Willows mission in her young life to continue to come for Rihannas Elmo Red wig? Clearly. The newest blastoff is beginning her performance as shown in this video with Rih-funds “Only Girl in the World”. Message?

Loves this kid.

Willow Smith- Whip My Hair

Broke and Living

Good Morning,

It’s still a Recession, for those of you that say it isn’t I don’t know what planet you’re living on.  If you’re currently not Broke and Living, do you want to adopt me? Just a simple question, no need to roll your eyes at me.. gosh.

Well you know my fam, whom I so often mention The Discombobulated Tricks? Well they’re back with some new flavor. Their new site is called www.brokeandliving.com. You know the Kanye line “We all self-conscious, I’m just the first to admit it“? Well this is along those lines. Nowadays, everyone tries to act like all they do is get money and stunt in clubs with Grey Goose bottles while really their rent isn’t paid. Boy, disappear! Girls acting like they’re Rihanna in the club when they borrowed (or stole their whole outfit) and they walk out in the videolight when Fancy comes on. Girl, good-damn-day!

My girls aren’t frontin.

BROKE AND LIVING.

…Just wondering (11)

…Just wondering why I haven’t blogged in a hot minute? Well it’s not that I don’t have anything to say, cause typically I always do. More so my mind maybe had too much to say. It’s easier for me to deduce my problems down myself before I take the time to write them here.

…Just wondering why this older man at my work keeps bothering me? First off, I’ll dismiss the fact that you got my number from God knows where only because we work on the same team…. but bruh, you calling me asking to come to your birthday and you’re old enough to be my Dad, is not what’s hot in these streets. Then when I ask you what you’re doing for it, you say “a private dinner”. If you don’t get your old silk pants, linen shirt, fake gold chain wearing, Coming to America behind from off of my phone…

…Just wondering why people yell “Free Lil Wayne” , “Free TI”,  “Free Wiz Khalifia” or any other celebrity that committed a stupid crime? Wiz Khalifia was arrested last night during a concert. Dude’s music is all about smoking weed, he tweets about it everyday and doesn’t hide the fact that he smokes weed. He tweets earlier on the evening “Kush smoke out at ….” and then that night he gets arrested. I mean, what? You guys feel sorry for him? I feel sorry for his mother. Don’t get me wrong, I keep up with celebrity gossip but I know that’s not the most important thing in life. Before you guys yell “Free Sakineh!” (the Iranian woman that is on Death Row for committing adultery) y’all are crying for a dumb rapper that will be in jail less than 6 months if that.  *Jay-Z voice* Stop ya bloodclot cryin!

…Just wondering why people figure I don’t catch their bullshit. Rarely do I miss things, just because I didn’t call you on your nonsense doesn’t mean I didn’t see it. I’ma need you to sit all the way down and keep it cute.

…Just wondering what this weather is saying. One day it feels like Fall and the next day Winter. I’m not feeling it at all. No bueno bitch.
