The reality is, im not getting any younger… In Fact, im getting older day by day, and my body is telling me that something needs to change. So Ive decided to listen to body now instead of later. During the month of October I got into the habit of more exercise: riding my bike to work(3 miles there and back) and running 3 miles at least twice a week. Combined with the excessive walking that...

The pure irony of the following is profound. Im venting about a social network … on another social platform. I received a text from a friend today asking why we werent friends on facebook. I almost chuckled; was this a serious question? But indeed it was and simply stated that it was an oversight. I have over 1000 friends(which isnt a lot compared to those who reach friends over 2000)....

Some people say dont look back, keep looking and moving forward. Ive always disagreed. If we dont dwell on the past, pay attention to what, why, and how it happened, we of course are destined to repeat it. We learn from our mistakes, and promise to not make the same mistakes again. Great concept, but we often go out and make new mistakes, learn and then make new mistakes. I think its time to take...
Looking back Dec 2010 and early 2011,I had some ideas of where I would want to be by the end of 2011 Looking at the reality of where I am, I’m trying to figure out what happened. The year isnt over and there are still things in the works, but as a whole, if was to gauge my progress, give 2011 a theme, for me it would be ” 1 step forward, 2 steps back). Life, for many of us is...

chocolatecoverednatural: Books don’t bite “Saying, ew I don’t read” is not cute and does not make you “cool” Quite the opposite, it makes you look dumb If you read them, I promise you won’t die If fact, you might actually learn something… As many Facebook updates as you read in one day, you probably could have read…
Oh women of Natural Hair.
Natural Hair Ladies, I love you! I really do. For some its purely aesthetics. For others it is a conscious choice to move away from and change the western stigma of what beauty is. It becomes a life style. No matter what reason you chose to delight us with your locs, curls , fades and fros… I thank you, My eyes thank you!
I'd hate to look back

You ever made a list of all the things you DIDN’T do? Not so that you get it right the next time. Next time is irrelevant, all that matters is that you didn’t do it THIS time. The list becomes a reminder of how bad you messed up . I’m realizing my list is entirely too long.
alisablu asked: That actually WASN'T my next question. lol. I was almost sure that you missed them. Seven years with them, I would expect it. That's cool though. Well I took the liberity of looking at the pictures and your locz were lovely. However, you are handsome with your fade as well. What question I will is ask would you loc again?
alisablu asked: So you cut your locz correct? May I ask what brought you to that?

More about Nothing
What are you doing with your life? I can honestly say im doing nothing with mine and to be able to come to that conclusion really sucks. I look at the past few years of my life,see my struggles, my loss, different events and ive come to the conclusion Ive been wasting a lot of freaking time. I come from a past of doing things that i love to do, living a life of passion, volunteering, making a...
It don't mean a thing if it aint got that swing
If I could redo my music history, I really think I wouldve learned the drums/percussion earlier, stuck with piano lessons, and picked up a bass guitar . I enjoyed playing the trumpet, but there was very little passion behind it. Ill try and find a Youtube or link , but any time I listen to Jill Scott’s Live album “Experience…” I fall in love with the idea of being a...
