Feeling/Not Feeling: The NYE Edition

FEELING

  • NYE signals that  the BS from the past year is over
  • I've had a trying year...a GOOD but trying year...but I am ready to BOUNCE to 2012
  • Iv'e already kicked my fitness goals into high gear.
  • I gotta keep these resolutions Seriously...
  • Hearing "What are you doing NYE?" followed by "Baby It's Cold Outside" LOVE those songs
  • The Ball drop in Times Square....(or our little Peach Drop in ATL)
  • I'm still celibate. I've stayed strong
  • Maybe I'll get some in 2012 (LOL)
  • Watchnight Service
  • The movie New Year's Eve. I wanna see that....
  • Kissing at the stroke of midnight
  • 2012 signals almost being done w/ this Phd...Praise Jehovah
  • NYE fireworks
  • I feel that 2012 is about to be a BREAKTHROUGH year! I'm excited (for me and a friend I've been praying deeply for)




NOT FEELING

  • Paying crazy amounts of money for NYE parties. Normally..the joint would be $10 to 15 on a regular night. Now you wanna charge me $150 to sit in a raggedy pleather VIP section w/ some old ass bottle of Moet?? Negative
  • Hence..I wanna go out but NOT pay...but....
  • I don't have a date. BOO on thatt! *smh*
  • So It's gonna be me and Dick Clark and a bottle of Prosecco
  • Since Im working out....then I gotta keep that isht up.
  • I dont wanna break my resolutions...
  • That's gonna be hard 
  • Going into 2012...still single...and celibate
  • going to Watchnight service.....drunk (LOL) and or/ in your club clothes
  • I hate Auld Lange Syne. I hate that song. 
  • I'd rather be in Vegas...doing something stupid...like..getting married (LOL)
  • I feel that 2012 is about to be a BREAKTHROUGH year! I'm scared :(

  2. I have never had a boo on NYE *sighs* I have alot of catching up to do

    I usually go to church which I did this yr. I did manage to party a few yrs and make it to NY for NYEs a few times to stand in the cold in times square (dont ever have to do that again). I did the peach drop one yr with my cuz who is a NYE baby.

    I feel indifferent about 2011 but I feel like this was the most personal growth I have exp in the last few yrs God was def working on me and revealing things. I am looking forward to 2012 already working on my vision board I will finish it tomorrow.

    BE EMPOWERED and enjoy the journey of 2012

2018: A Year Without Fear

I used to make these lofty, resolution goals each year. The older I got, the grander my ideas became. That is until I reached the age of 30 and my entire life shifted.

At the time, I was divorced, living totally on my own, trying to rebuild myself financially and trying to figure out my next move toward happiness. That was at the time I started this blog.... which started out as my chronicling the dating and mating of a 30 something divorcee' in the South's Largest Metropolis. I was trying to date. I was trying to establish myself financially. And I was trying to find my purpose.

So much has changed in the almost 9 years since I started this blog. I've traveled alone. I gained and lost friends. I got into a Ph.D. program. I got re-married. I lost my mother, my best friend.... not to mention my uncle, cousin, and aunt. I gained a sweet baby girl.  I went from getting my bliss.... to trying to balance that bliss with my own life..... Yet in trying to find the balance, I alw…

The Ides of Birthdays

My 39th birthday is in two weeks.
*sigh*
You know, I feel like I write the same type of blog around my birthday every year. I get extremely introspective and pensive about the whole thing. But this is my last year of my 30s and I am feeling all of the feelings that have ever and could be felt. I hate trying to bring this up to folks.. who are always wanting to remind you of "well.. you got this.. you got that...". As if you haven't dealt with depression long enough to realize it doesn't matter what you have... if one piece is missing.. it throws it all off.
While yesterday was the 3rd anniversary of my mom's passing, I realized she wouldn't be here for my 40th. That was a hard pill to swallow. I thought for sure we'd be celebrating a lot that year... my Ph.D... a baby... a big, fancy car..... all of that. I only have one of those things so far but still... I was hoping that having her hold on at least until then would be the icing on my cake.

I Had Hope For Other Hair: Confessions in Black Motherhood

I had hoped for other hair...
(My Little One Reading a Book Before Bed)

... for my daughter.

No, I didn't want her to have "good hair"... hair that ebbed and flowed close to the weight of Whiteness. I didn't want that for her.  I didn't want her to have hair that was deemed "managable" or "a good grade". as if you can give hair letter grades or grade it on a curve.

I just wanted her to have any hair other than MY hair. She inherited my hair. And I cried.

When I found out I was having a girl, anxiety was replaced with dread. "Dear God.. I have to learn how to do hair". See, growing up, my mother was my stylist, even way into high school. So in between salon visits, she would relax or press my hair. She'd style it or comb it. And I never worried about it. I tried and tried to do my own hair... and failed. The only style I could keep up were Brandy-inspired box braids (which some poor, Senegalese woman would do for hours) or a very sho…
