D.I.Y LIFE!

Today's Inspiration: Reality Broads, Specifically Love and Hip Hop New York






I know, I know, here we go right?!  But I think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you find in the next few lines!

Most anybody who knows me knows my opinions of reality tv.  I don't entertain it on a regular basis, as a matter of fact, it's a distraction from the real world and what's in it.  I'm too busy tryna make my life and the lives of my children something worth living to consume myself with the goings on of complete strangers.  For the life of me, I couldn't understand the ratchet fascination.  I recently sat down and watched the most current season of Love and Hip Hop New York in its entirety to try and grasp the intoxication of this phenomena.  

I must say, I did discover something very interesting, and was pleasantly surprised.

Let me go ahead and silence these ratchet hoe lovers by saying that its still a H.A.M and pitiful representation of Blacks in the entertainment world.  DON'T GET IT TWISTED!  I decided to address it like a study of some wild animal, take a scientific approach.  I was determined to find value in this minstrel show.  And Guess what....I sure did!

What I discovered, is the real reason these people subject themselves to constant scrutiny.  These people are taking a D.I.Y approach to their lives, or at least we are giving them the benefit of the doubt at this very moment and say that's what is going on.  We can extract this deeper meaning from observation of the show, because each character functions in their own little sphere, focused only on the things that further individual agendas.  This is why the interactions are so explosive, there's no regard for how these actions effect those that surround them.

I admire the tenacity, I abhor the recklessness.

It seems the characters lack humanity, yet when they display any type of emotion, it's very intense.  They are completely incapable of recognizing how their own actions has led them to their current circumstances and immediately begin devising a plan even more foolish than its predecessor.  Some of these people are completely incapable of forming real human connection and keep people in their lives as a means to an end. 

ANDROIDS!

Take the good, the tenacity, the drive, the initiative from the Infotainment elite, not the utter disdain and disregard for others.  Of course I know this is going to be impossible for the masses, as they thrive on the ignorance being emulated, but in order to retain some semblance of a Soul, I suggest you try.  Recognize ignorance is everywhere and does not need to be fabricated and displayed on Television, a simple conversation at work can supply all the filth you need.  Stop looking at BS, GET MONEY!

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

Delightfully Disconnected

This idea started in my journal this morning, then I later thought to pose it to the rest of the world...I recently came across an article (linked below the post) on theminsjournal.com that talked about lucid dreaming.  I no longer believe in coincidence, an took this as a response to the unanswered questions bouncing around in my head about what is actually HAPPENING to my mind and thought process as I grow, evolve, and change.  It broke me down in plain English, and helped me gain much-needed clarity on my current situation... What the article basically said, in a nutshell is that we are never truly awake until/unless we are completely focused, and living in the present moment.  The concepts of past, present, and future are all one construct; all existing right now, simultaneously.  In essence, we are constantly experiencing these things both consciously, and subconsciously.  What we do from day to day, is experienced through a state of Lucid Dreaming; a sort of half conscious

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
