well my ipod is still broken...and i am still waiting on apple to send me my new one
until then i am borrowing erica's ipod
it has A LOT of random songs...some good...most bad...LoL

but in the past week i have def found a few that i have fallen in love with...one that fits my mood PERFECTLY would be "Sure Thing" by Miguel....

Love You Like a Brother

Treat you like a friend

Respect you like a lover

You could bet that

Never gotta sweat that [x4]

If you be the cash

I'll be the rubberband

You be the match

Imma be your fuse


Painter baby you

Could be the muse

I'm the reporter baby

You could be the news

Cause your the cigarette

And I'm the smoker

We raise a bet...

Cause your a joker

Truth tho...

You are the chalk

And I could be the blackboard

And you can be the talk

And I could be the walk

Even when the sky comes falling

Even when the sun don't shine

I got faith in you and I

So put your pretty little hand in mine

Even when we're down to the wire babe

Even when it's do or die

We can do it baby simple and plain

cuz this love is a sure thing

You could bet that

Never got to sweat that [x4]

You could be the lover

I'll be the fighter babe

If I'm the blunt

You could be the lighter babe

Fire it up!

Writer babe

You could be the quote

If I'm the lyric baby

You could be the note

Record that!

Saint, I'm a sinner

Prize, I'm a winner

And it's you

What can I do to deserve that

Paper baby

I'll be the pen

Say that I'm the one

Cause you are ten

real and not pretend!

Even when the sky comes fallin

Even when the sun don't shine

I got faith in you and I

So put your pretty lil hand in mine

Even when were down to the wire babe

Even when it's do or die

We can do it babe simple and plain

Cause this love is a sure thing

Rock wit me baby

Let me hold you in my arms

Talk with me baby


This love

Between you and I

As simple as pie baby

Such a sure thing

Oh is it a sure thing [x2]

Even when the sky comes fallin

Even when the sun don't shine

I got faith in you and I

So put your pretty little hand in mine

Even when we're down to the wire babe

Even when it's do or die

We can do it baby simple and plain

This love is a sure thing

Love you like a brother

Treat you like a friend

Respect you like a lover

well needless to say it is my fav. time of the year....MARCH MADNESS

it is my fav. HOLIDAY (and yes it is a holiday to me!) hence why i have been lacking in posting on my blog. i spend countless hours watching the games and cheering for the underdog teams to beat out the top seeds. even tho my bracket is all messed up, i enjoy seeing a good game with a small team that is playing as if it is their last game EVER.  i LOVE basketball!
Speaking of...i got to go to the games in chicago this year!! it was a first.
got to watch the Purdue game and the Notre Dame game.
i had a blast and it made me miss playing ball so much.

look at my tickets (so shiny!!) LoL...the flordia/Notre Dame game...the VCU/Purdue game...
see how close we are to the court!!! :)

this month has def. had alot going on for me!

went to chicago for the concert at the end of feb. ran to new orleans for spring break, then back to chicago for the march madness games. these past few weeks have been super busy and crazy. now it is back to reality and i gotta settle back into my regular routine.

i found a blog a while back and i read it when i can remember and this last post was the one that hit home. all of the expereinces i have had (in life but more so with dating) was explained so well! everything this person said is exactly what i have been thinking and feeling and they put it into words perfectly...


it is an awesome blog and the thing i loved the most about it was what they had to say to close the entry...

"Because instead of turning our attention away from me and steering it toward a he the has the potential to become a we- we’ve gotta learn how to have the me, have the he, and have the we, without losing all three."

And this is so true! i know that when it comes to me meeting a guy, my thoughts are consumed with the possiblity of "this" and the possibility of "that" that i am so blind to certain things that i would normally notice. you have to learn the balance and learn not to lose yourself and the efforts to find that "Mr. Right" and learn to distinguish the difference between that and the "Mr. Right Now". and i will say that i am still learning how to do that and belive that i have def. gotten alot better at it.

i know it would make me upset to see a guy choose someone else over me. and insted of seeing it as a blessing i would see it as why did they not choose me because of all my qualities. because investing in me would be like investing in their future. i am going places and for their social status i would be a good option. and i am glad that i have learned not to think that way anymore. i think over the past year i have def grown to learn my worth and to be happy with what cards the Lord deals me. i may not be happy with the situation but i always know that there is a reason for it.

I am learning to love and embrace EVERYTHING about me. the things i can or can not change. i am on this current journey with learning how to do/maintain my hair. for those of you who dont know, dealing with african american hair is a journey on its own! LoL
i have been "natural" all my life. never had a perm or n e other chemicals on my hair. i would usually just flat iron it or "press"it.  But as i am growing into woman-hood i am learning to embrace the curly -kinky - nappy wig the lord blesssed me with. it is fun to see the beauty that comes with the hard work of trying to figure it out. i had to cut a 1 to 2 inches off recently because my ends were "heat trained" and some parts "heat damaged". im learning all these terms and all these techniques.  If it wasnt for you tube i would totally be lost on this journey. LoL.  dont worry i will post pix.

 pix of me washing my hair...cutting it...and 2 diff styles i have tried so far :)

Well other than that life is good....God is good...and i will contiune to strive for those things i keep working towards. :)

well this past weekend i got to go to....


This was my first time and it was ALOT of fun.
went with my roomie and some bartenders that i work with.
it wasnt as bad as i expected.
i am happy that i did get to go and see something new and do something new
it was a little chilli outside
but it was def warmer than the crappy midwest cold!

i think that is it a great thing. there were alot of people (which got annoying at times)
we would head out pretty early in the day and stay out until about 10 or 11. anything after that was just way too much (to much people...drunk ppl...LoL)
got to see a little bit of the city
got to try some amazing food!
and on the way back we had a tire blowout about half way back to missouri
a perfect way to end a good trip...

there were old man/women...even children running around (which i thought was a bad idea!)
it wasnt too X-rated. but it def is not a place for kids to be.
overall the drinks were amazing (and not too expensive)
you can walk on the street and drink your booze (we def had a 4-loco day...yea that was a bad idea...LoL)
but it was def fun and another good spring break trip for the scrap book
