It's 1:00 a.m. and I should be asleep because I have to get up for work at 8:30!! I was sitting in bed listening to One Republic's song "Stop and Stare" and it made me take a moment to think about my life and where I want to be in the future. I'm a college student and I can tell you that it has not been an easy road always. When I think about the obstacles I have had to overcome I am actually glad that I was chosen for these test. Being the dreamer that I am I had to realize after high school that nothing in life comes easy when it comes to wanting to be prosperous and successful. Many nights I have cried thinking why me God, why do I have to go through so much when I'm trying to do right in my life. The question I now ask myself is Why not me?? It's way easier said than done!! lol Nothing worth having is easy to obtain and I had to realize that. The trials and tribulations that I have had to endure throughout my life could be way worse! It has made me who I am today and it's still molding me into the woman that I aspire to become one day. We have two paths we can take in life and it's solely up to you which way you want to go. Always take the time out to stop and think about who you are and where you want to go in life and try to be the best man or woman you can be...It's so EASY to do wrong and so tedious to do right...I end this with one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost.

It's a Saturday night...I'm still a little under the weather with no plans for this weekend SO why not talk a little about my hair!! haha lol. Well if you look at the first picture those are my permed tresses!! I've had a perm for years! Maybe ever since I was in the fifth grade. Now I'm 22 years of age and my LAST PERM FOREVER WAS sometime in November! Nobody actually believed that I could go cold turkey when it came to the creamy crack lol because whenever you saw my hair it was fresh and always in a nice wrap and I never ever wanted to go past 6 weeks without a perm because my hair would be "too hard" to manage. Well a not to long ago close friend of mine LT (I don't think he has to much to say to me anymore lol that's another post though) got me into different youtubers with natural hair and he was like I think your hair would be great that way! I was like no no that's not for me and blah blah. Finally I thought about it to myself and thought why not?? I always liked my hair curly from roll -n- sets why not go for my natural curls! I wanted a drastic change and healthier hair! It was either dye it, cut it into a cute cut or go natural! I picked natural!! I transitioned for 6 months and FINALLY did the BC (big chop) May 26, 2009!! So I will be completely natural for a month on June 26th! When I did it I felt so rejuvenated and free!! I love it and I can't wait until it grows longer! I don't regret any decisions with my hair at all and I'm glad that I am educating myself more about hair and I feel that alot more people should do the same because the ignorance I see behind hair is very sad. This is the new me and I'm loving it :)

Today I was just thinking to myself, when was the last time I had a boyfriend? The answer to that question is Feb. 2008. It's been a year and 4 months since I had a boyfriend. (I do love the show Living Single...TV ONE still shows it) I actually don't have a problem with being single because I can do what I want, it's cheaper to be single lol, and I don't have to deal with all that baggage that comes with SOME relationships! The key to being single and HAPPY is to actually know how to have fun without it having to be with a guy!! You have got to realize that you don't need a man to validate you and show you a good time! I love to have fun with my best friends and my family because they keep me grounded!! :) I must say I have learned so much from all these different types of guys this past year. I could have had a boyfriend right now BUT that's a long story...lol that would have to be another post...maybe a cool guy will come into my life and I won't be Living Single...time will tell...I'm not setting myself up to be disappointed though...

OKAY! So last night I went to see The Hangover...if you haven't been living under a rock you know the story line! Four friends basically get WASTED on a trip to Vegas before one of them gets married...etc...etc.. This movie by far is the FUNNIEST movie I have seen in a long long time!! I laughed from start to finish! I'm definitely going to go see it again on Sunday AND I am buying the DVD when it's released...not to mention the actor (Bradley Cooper) that played the role of Phil is a total hottie lol...I was like WOW lol. Overall I give it 5 stars and I guarantee you that nobody will be disappointed...unless you don't have a sense of humor :-)

I just saw The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 for the first time!! I must say it was a nice Saturday night movie for me this weekend. I loved how they cherished their friendships and kept each other together through their crazy separate lives. Talk about eye candy in the movie! WOW lol...To bad the whole mini love stories don't happen like that in life for real...it's way more complicated and it seems like nobody is romantic anymore!! Overall I give it a 5/5. I know I'm late with movies!!
Okay so I have an addiction...and that addiction is to heels...sigh* lol it's nothing way serious! Anyway...while watching Jeremih's new video to the hit single Birthday Sex I couldn't help but notice how sexy the shoes were on the leading lady's feet :-). Those shoes distracted me from the cutie Jeremih!! lol They are Giuseppe's....the expensive for my wallet...try $800-$930! I can admire the beauty of these shoes though.
