This Just In...

News Flash: I'm still here!!!

When I looked at the date of my last post, it shocked even me. Time sure does fly...even when your standing still...or trying to stand still.

It's kinda late, I'm a bit tired and I need to get up at like 5AM tomorrow morning...BUT...I could not go another day without posting.'s just a quick snapshot of what has been going on with me during my "sablogoical" (have I told you lately how corny I am?):

* Still lovin' my hair although it doesn't seem to be going over so well with the male species. But that's okay...maybe this hair is exactly what I needed to weed out the riffraff.

* Still selling my jewelry...still in shock that it's being bought...who would have thunk it?

* My family finally figured out that I'm not working a full time job. I had been keeping it from them because I just didn't need all the questions, unsolicited advice/opinions/judgements or harrassment. Seems as though I didn't give my family enough credit and/or they are finally understanding that when I don't want to talk about something, I don't want to talk about it. Even though the inital conversation with my Mother was a bit uncomfortable, they have been pretty respectful of my wishes. Let's see how long that lasts...

* I got in contact with my "godfather" of sorts and he has put me in contact with some people in DC that he knows/used to work with. Seems like I might be getting some legitimate interviews in the very near future...please continue to pray for me/think good thoughts for me...I'll keep you posted.

* I'm currently diggin' the following artist: Corinne Bailey Rae

* I'm currently diggin' the following songs for many different reasons: "Happy" by Meleni Smith, "Margarita" by Sleepy Brown featuring Pharrell & Big Boi, "Entourage" by Omarion, "Like A Star" by Corinne Bailey Rae...and there's a couple more on my list but it's too late for me to remember them all.

* A 22 year old guy has been flirting with me for the past couple weeks makes me giggle whenever I think about it. And although this is WAY too big of an age difference for me in the wrong direction (ie. younger instead of older), I have to admit it is SUPER flattering and I'm realizing that these young dudes have more game then they used to when I was 22. WOW!

* Still going through divorce BS and emotional highs and lows. I CANNOT wait until this is all that you will be hearing me say that until it finally is over! I apologize in advance.

* I DO have pics of the new hair, but I'm having difficulty with sizing them...they're WAY too small the way they are now and I don't know how to increase their size (if they even can be).

* My prayer of late, along with my consistent prayer of thanksgiving, has been for a kinder and sweeter spirit. Anger, frustration, confusion and anxiety have taken residence in my spirit causing me to be "not-so-nice" more often than I would like..and it's eviction time!!! If you are the praying type, please add me to your list.

* I'm slowly catching up on the goings on in the lives of my blog family. I know my comments have been few and far between, but the love is still there and ALWAYS will be. I'm reading you even when you think I'm not. I'll be back on the comment scene before you know it.

I'm sure I'm leaving a thing or two out...but that's about the long and short of my recent days.

Thanks for the constant love, support and is appreciated much more than you will ever know!

Stay tuned cause I ain't goin' nowhere!!!

Hey girl...

Got my friends, got my life, got my love...I love that song Happy. I played it on repeat on the daily. You must add Justin Timberlake's SexyBack to your list while you rock your new hair style.

Girl, good that men aren't responding to the hai. This is a very very good thing. Anyone including the 22 yr old (LOL) that are interested now are interested for better reasons.

I hope things with the godfather's contact work out.

Sometimes we convince ourselves at how people in our lives will react about certain things and MOST times we are wrong....all they do is love us.

Off to work, glad you're back!

Margarita is my shit! That song is so damn smooth.

@ Mwabi: Thanks for the advice and love...I'll have to check out that J. Timberlake joint...don't think I've heard it yet.

@ Luvin: Thank you...hope all is well with you too!

@ Laa: Thanks...I'll be keeping you guys posted on the job front!

@ Nikki: Ain't it though? I listen to it atleast once EVERY time I get in the car. I close my eyes and invision myself driving down Pacific Coast Highway in LA with the top down and the sun shinin'! That song definitely puts a smile on my face :)

It'll all be cool.

22 year olds with game? Really?

I've found that my family surprises me, and their reactions to things are not always what I expect them to be, for better or worse, but usually for better.

I'm a Corinne Bailey Rae fan, too, she's very cool. Really nice vibe. Perfect music for a summer of stillness.

When you upload your picture to blogger, you can tell it that you want it bigger than actual size. If you have a flickr site (, that resizes pictures really well also. I can't really picture your hair the way you described it, but I'm sure it looks good.

I'll be praying for you. Anger, frustration and confusion are definitely not the tenants you want in your spirit.

God bless,

I went through a divorce almost a year ago so I completely understand the emotional highs and low.
Hang in there! I'll add you to my prayer list!

@ Chele: Yes girl...I couldn't believe it myself, but they do. Or let me just say HE does.

@ Black Sheep: "Perfect music for a summer of stillness..." ABSOLUTELY love that..."summer of stillness"...that actually gave me the chills. Thank you for your prayers!

@ Exhausted Spirit: Thank you for visiting my site. Glad you made it over to the "other side" - I hope things are working out much better for you now. Thank you for the encouragement and for adding me to you prayer list!
