Girl U So Introspective: A New Day

I posted this as my Facebook status yesterday and I will post it again here. Because I want to be CLEAR:
"From Sept to Sept, I've been burdened, scared, devastated, dead, unstable, angry, disappointed, confused. I confronted the devil & won, yet still learning to trust God again. I've felt a lonliness you can't imagine, yet have never been so proud & full of promise. I've failed; crashed and burned. But I will tell you this: from these ashes, a phoenix will rise. A being more graceful, more powerful than my former self."


Top Four: Joys of Retail Greeting

I'm finding myself back in retail...after I said I'd never go back. Not that I've gone back out of love, but out of necessity. However, that is neither here nor there...and my retail woes aren't the point of this post. Well, I take that back; they are the point of this post. Here are my TOP FOUR joys of retail services as they pertain to meeting & greeting; "hi, how are you" if you will:
  • Answering without looking at me, because I really enjoy guestimating how many inches your highlights have grown out from the crown of your head and at how ill-fitting your pants are from the backside.
  • ESL people (including ESL look-a-likes) who, when asked a question, cover their mouths, giggle and say "No English!" You know that I know that you know English as a Second Language because I heard you on the phone talmbout how you were "sooo drunk last night" at the bar with your American homegirl.
  • Responding the wrong way when I ask you what you're looking for in the store. Nodding and saying "thank you" is NOT the correct answer! But, hey, that shows me you're really listening.
  • And when you do respond to me, you're too important to acknowledge my presence, breeze past with a quick and crisp "Nope!" before I can greet you. Then, three minutes later, you're asking me "Where, how much, what other colors and sizes, etc." So, I politely ignore you, cus NOPE, you don't need any help!

Grandmas throwing shade in Ann Taylor just gives me some kind of rush! I almost can't wait til Christmas season!

Overnight Celebrity

I want my 15 minutes of fame, dang it! Why enroll in acting classes, learning to smile with my eyes, when I can become an insta-celeb; a reality star of sorts?

Hello YouTube! I'm thinking of starting my own channel. I'm already addicted, why not contribute to the monster? I've got a trusty formerly white MacBook and a lot on my mind. I can be the next LonleyGirl15, only in poor, back-lit bathroom lighting. I could talk about topics like feminism, afros and NOH8; about dating, Jesus and the perils of being a Have Not. The possibilities are abundant and endless!

What's wrong with microwaving my success and skyrocketing to viral video stardom?

everybody's talkin all this stuff about me...

This fool was jammin' back in '9os! These kid's and their colorful fashions ain't got nothing on Bobby's gumby! And, check out the pelvic roll in the intro...CLASSIC! I'm starting a petition for Chris Brown to remake this!! I said it once, and I'll say it again! Chris Brown, forget about Brittany Spears, do a remake!

Girl, U so Wise!

I moved to Dallas in January, only to move back home in September after losing my job before the three month mark. The number one thing I learned was:
Wait ninety-ONE days before you brang yo' sh*t to another state!!!

Just wanted to pass on that little pearl of wisdom, chil'ren! Now, let me go get ready to snap for the kids!
