Out with the old and in with the new.................. 2013 has arrived!!







OMG…. It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone. I can still vividly remember bringing in 2012, and anticipating what the year had in store for me. I decided to opt out of “popping bottles” at a party this year, and instead take the time to reflect on my experiences in 2012, and meditate on what exactly I want to accomplish in 2013. I stopped making resolutions a couple of years ago because I always ended up breaking them before the end of January.

Instead of making resolutions, I decided with each new year I will simply aim for progress in any area of my life, whether it’s minor or major. I definitely made progress from 2011 to 2012, and this time next year I want to be able to look back and see that I’ve made progress as well. It’s so easy to become stagnant so I constantly do self-evaluations to check my growth.

With a new year comes a new beginning so with that being said, make the most out of 2013. If you have a dream, work on pursuing it. If you have an idea, work on turning it into reality. Go ahead and start whatever it is you’ve been putting off for so long. What I learned over time is that sometimes in order for change to occur, you have to change, and sometimes you have to change the people around you in order for that to happen.  I’ve also learned that if you keep doing the same thing, the same way, you’re going to get the SAME results. Aim for progress!

I wish everyone a blessed and prosperous new year! Make this year count! J

Is Cheating Inevitable?

When most people think about what it means to cheat in a relationship, they automatically think about having sex with another person outside their relationship; but cheating is so much more than just sex. Have you ever made a strong connection with another person while you were in a relationship to the point that you thought about that person frequently and started to develop feelings for that person? What if it got to the point where you started to lose interest in the person with whom you were in a relationship? Have you ever texted or talked on the phone with someone you were attracted to, someone unknown to your man or woman? A lot of people say they have control over how far they will allow a situation to go, but eventually after spending so much time with another person to whom you are attracted and with whom you have a connection, emotions tend to get involved. I think developing a strong emotional relationship with another person is just as much cheating as having a sexual rel…

Dreams..........

One of my old classmates reached out to me in November and asked me to check out a track called "Dreams." I didn’t get a chance to listen to it until mid-December, but I must say when I finally heard the song I was impressed. Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m an avid music lover, especially when the music has meaning. "Dreams" is without a doubt a song with substance; it definitely speaks to the mind of the conscious thinker. The song sheds light on certain taboo issues in the black community, issues people are reluctant to address. These issues include the constant occurrence of senseless violence and people’s lack of morals and priorities. The verse below which is actually one of my favorite verses on the track speaks on one of those issues:

“We conditioned to the violence…… black and brown riots, to the point that our alliance follows moments of silence, and it’s sad that the people never see the evil…….. so long as the Gucci belt matches the Evisu.”

I Really Wanted To Love The Tupac Movie......

Ya'll I really wanted to love All Eyez On Me.  I wanted all of the years we waited for the movie to be made to be worth it, but I was so disappointed with the outcome. When I saw the low ratings and negative reviews I got a little worried but still decided to see the movie on opening day because I wanted to give the film a chance. About 30 minutes in I felt like I was watching a Lifetime movie! I told myself with the movie being over 2 hours there was still a possibility it could get better and it did slightly..... but that was mainly because of the concert scenes and music.

I honestly thought the movie was wack, rushed (storytelling aspect), corny, and not well written. No disrespect to the production team, writers, and cast but that's just my opinion. It annoys me when some people say you're hating or you are not old enough and that's why you can't appreciate the movie. That's not the case. True enough when Tupac died I was still a kid but as I got older I was…
