Finish this sentence.......

Reactions: 
This AM I was scanning the blogosphere when I stumbled across an interesting Q & A and I figured I'd take a stab at it.  So here goes.......

My current state of mind has me....
Anxious about my future and what God has in store for me.  I'm always looking to "find" myself even more and figure out if some of the things I want are my real wants or if I conform to the expectations society has placed on us

The trait I most deplore in myself is....
Procrastination.  I reek of it sometimes and it's actually a little disgusting!

The living person I most admire is...
My mother.  The realest person I've ever met.

My greatest extravagance is...
Shoes!  Need some Louboutins in my life ASAP!

The quality I most like in a man is...
Loyalty and Reliability.

I admire all qualities of women because...
we rock!  No one does it like us...starting from the birth process.  And we can just leave it at that!

The word I most overuse is...
Exactly!

My favorite writers are...
Demtria Lucas, Stefanie Meyer, Charlane Harris, Tracy Brown and Zane (guilty pleasure).

The talent I'd like to have is...
Dancing.  I can 2 step but I still haven't mastered the single ladies dance :-(

My favorite fictional hero is...
Any prince from a Disney movie.  I have thing for knights in shining armor.

My favorite hero in real life is...
Oprah.  She is the WOMAN and an inspiration to ALL women!

My greatest achievement is...
I haven't had it yet.  If I had to say I'd say moving to LA because it was always a dream of mine and I made it happen.

I'd like to live...
a long time.

My most treasured possession is...
I don't have one.  I'm not that attached to my possessions.  I can always get new ones.  One thing I would hate to lose is an xoxoxo chain I got from my mother when I was 14.  I already lost the bracelet :-(

The lowest depth of misery is...
Being without my boo for an extended period of time........

The trait I most value in a friend is...
Loyalty.

My favorite names are...
Jordan, Jayden, Joshua, Jacob, Marissa, Leah....

I most dislike...
Phony and disrespectful people.

My greatest regret is...
I don't have regrets.  There's always tomorrow...God willing.

I would like to die...
OLD

My motto -
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind 
don't matter and those who matter don't mind!

Being the best me...........

Reactions: 
Yesterday was a long day.  Got up, got dressed, got to work and my boss had numerous tasks for me to tend to as soon as I walked through the door.  I'm not complaining because there are plenty of days where we are like two ships passing in the night and he doesn't ask me for anything.  I've learned to take the good with the bad. I was just a lil exhausted and of course the dreary weather wasn't doing much to help.  On top of that, I had a networking event to attend and I'm always a little on edge when I have things like that coming up.  Of course, there's the obligatory stress regarding what to wear.  Then there's the task of loosening myself up and getting ready to be my sociable and interesting self (at least that's the goal).  It's always nerve wrecking when there's a lot of influential people in a room and you want to stand out, but at the same time you don't want to seem like a groupie.  I'm so not a groupie but I am not too shy or prideful to admit that I want and NEED to meet people that are doing what they want to do and can help me further my career.  My ultimate goal is to LOVE what I do. Click HERE to read more......

Do YOU know who YOU are??

Reactions: 
I'm just sitting here reflecting on my weekend and the time I had. It was a great weekend. For one reason or another, I was just ticked off with my S.O last week from like Tuesday to Friday. I have this bad habit of holding grudges and seemingly blowing things out of proportion, but if you know women, and if you're reading this I assume you do, there is rarely a time where we do something without reasoning, #methodtomymadness. So I came home Friday, just itching to continue on with my attitude when he charmed the mess outta me, what a slickster. So after he manipulated me, we headed on over to Peaches and had dinner and wine and a nice walk home. The next day, we got up and went to Red Lobster, obviously domestic duties were not on the agenda for the weekend. He then went to do whatever it is that men do when they're with their friends and I just chilled in the crib and did me. *bliss*

Cut to Sunday. A few friends from high school were throwing a BBQ and I was all set to go. Usually, and by usually I mean the Monday through Friday work week, not having a car is not an issue. But when the S.O. is out doing his own thing and I want to do mine it becomes an issue. I was going with 2 friends who both had cars so it shouldn't have been an issue but when they both canceled I was at a loss. Randomly, my cousin calls me to go look for a computer with her. I go because she's told me in the past that when I'm with the S.O. I'm MIA. Needless to say, I couldn't say no when at the moment I was doing nothing other than laying up with him. So we ride out to Gateway discussing the comedy or shall I say DRAMA-dy that is our family. We finish up at best buy, she didn't get the computer. She's on her way to Summer Jam so I'm about to get dropped off. We head back to our side, when she says, "Let me stop over here and get my homeboy cause he's on the way". I say ok, and we head in the direction of her homeboy's crib. We pull up and he's by the car with their other friend. The other guy says, "Yo, just ride with us and let your cousin take your car". Said cousin being me. She hops in the whip with them and they're on their way. Now I have a car with somewhere to go. I call my homegirl up to ride with me and we head out to Queens for the BBQ.

We pull up to the park and I'm pleasantly surprised that's it's actually a nice park and not some semblance of a park. I head over and meet up with my old friends and am warmly received. Always good seeing old folks and as one friend mentioned, it's even better to see folks doing well. As, I'm chatting with one of my old friends, a girl walks in. Long hair (weave of course), thick, red bone. Seemingly, Weezy's type and mostly every other red blood black man #noshade. HS Friend says: "Me and my friends went out with that girl and a few of her friends and no one liked her but me." I let it go. What do I care? I'm never gonna see this girl again.  Click HERE to read more........
