Can't live with em.......

So the old adage goes "Can't live with em', Can't live without 'em". At this point, I don't know. I'm slightly temperamental and I know that. Actually anyone who knows me knows that. But I'm ok with that, flaws and all #workinprogress. So, with that said, my boo gets on my LAST nerve! Last night had the potential to be a great night. I had some vino and I didn't have school.

He comes home, with the sweet voice and asks me to make dinner because he wanted to go work out (we take turns with dinner and his night was up). So of course after he asked so nicely I had to comply. He comes home after the workout, I have dinner ready, house smelling all good, got the vino poppin...sounds like all the makings of a fantastic night if you ask me. But of course, things didn't go quite as planned. Click HERE to find out what happened......

It Aint All Roses.......


So I woke up tired as hell from a long a$$ night. I dragged in this AM and of all days for my boss to get here before me it would be the one day that I was 10 minutes late. Oh wells...rough night...in a good way *insert coy wink*. Anywho, rode in to work this morning on the train on a break from my usual full album IPOD listening. I put it on random and happened to hear a few Lauryn Hill unplugged joints. Though her voice is more than a lil raspy, sounds like she may have burned one blizzy too many...I still felt like "Damn this is real music". There's just something about the rawness that is just so authentic to me. So cut to 2 cups of coffee later and a few blog reads. I stumble upon a new blog: earsandlps.blogspot.com. She's doing a write up on one of my favorite bloggers/writers, Demetria Lucas.  Check out her blog here. The focus of the interview she did was music and how she related to it. The first album that she ever fell in love with was "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill":

"Hill’s music was so pure, so honest— choosing Zion, lamenting loving a man she shouldn't and who didn’t love her, falling in love, trying to make sense of the world (“my world it moved so fast today/ the past it seems so far away/ holding me so tightly I can’t breathe…. Every time I try to be/ what someone else thought of me/ so caught up I was unable to achieve. But deep in my heart/ the answer was in me…). It spoke to everything I was going through at time. I loved how she spit more fire than any man I’d heard, but talked about what women go through."

Is worrying an act of unfaithfulness?

Man this weather today is a mess (that's my new word for some reason...don't ask why cause I couldn't tell ya). For me, in a good way though. The rain ALWAYS does one of two things for me, either it makes me tired as all hell or it makes me introspective. Today it isn't an either or, it's a little bit of both. Right now, I'm hella happy. I have a great life. Good job, School's going well (that bad ass 3.875 GPA...please excuse me for bragging but I think I earned it *giggles*), I have a great man, and great friends.

Today though, I heard from a friend who's S.O. is going through some financial trouble on top of other issues. She's worried about how things will work out in these tough economic times. I thought to myself "WOW! When it rains it pours". I know it's so cliche but I can't help but think: why do things always have to come in such a rush? Personally I'd take a slow drip, any day, over a waterfall. I'm a firm believer that GOD won't put more on us than we can bear...but we are all only humans. There is a saying that says something along the lines of "if you worry you are not trusting GOD" but I have a hard time believing that. It's like saying you're hungry with no money and you don't know where your next meal is coming from. If you trust GOD, you know eventually you will eat, somehow someway. But, that does not change the fact that you are hungry right then and there. I wonder, is worrying an act of unfaithfulness or is it just human nature?

What do you think?
