” God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble . Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though mountains shake with its swelling. There is a river, Selah whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the most High . “
– Proverbs 46 : 1 – 4
oh haaaai .
I dislike waking up early cause it ruins me for the rest of the day man … but I can’t go back to sleep , waaaaah … on the bright side I am up to see a new day right ? yupp . I should actually be going to church but I’m back on the hunt for a new home church how fun … not =/ .
March Madness is in full swing ! This is my first year actually watching lol . Terrible . Bigups to Iowa State that came up with a W last night over Notre Dame ! Some Canadian talent is on the team so I’m always down to support obviously . I haven’t really tuned into many NCAA ball games during the season but I hope Iowa State takes it because I know someone who plays for them , duh . *throws up pom poms*
After my mini checkup last night one of my readers (I feel so cool saying that honestly) gave me a some feedback and proposed a little challenge for me . Since I’m such a picky eater I’m going to try something new for 21 days starting April 1st . I need some time to get all my junk in . AND no more McDonald’s . I’m a fiend and it has to end , sadly . Keep me in your prayers guys , no joke . spanks =)
time to get my day started with some fried plantain , have a blessed day xox .
I’m so tired .
I know I’m doing a post at 2AM obviously I should be tired but I mean I’m emotionally tired of many things . With all the changes going on around me sometimes I feel like I have absolutely no control … In many cases this is true . I’m having those kind of days where instead of taking things one at a time , I just pick up everything all at once and hope that my superwoman powers will activate… but they don’t lol . But it’s coo , I mean we all have those days . I can admit that . But I don’t want this to be depressing .
I saw something on twitter the other day and it made me laugh . This guy that I used to “talk to” in high school (in a nutshell he played me like all the other guys I liked in high school , yikes) tweeted that girls can’t be trusted . LOL isn’t that sewwwwwww funny ? Do people not believe in karma ? All things done in the dark must come to light ? nah ? oh . You expect to constantly lie to a girl that did nothing to you and not expect to meet someone who will match your nonsense ? Don’t get me twisted though , I wouldn’t wish the hurt I went through on anyone but its bound to happen . *shrug*
#randomfactthatIdidntrealizeaboutmyselfuntiltheotherday , I am very picky 0_o .
I love food sooooo much . . but only certain foods . I only eat certain chocolates , certain candies , specific meats ,etc . I just thought I was craven but I’m not ! Craven people eat anything in sight, I don’t WOO . ^_^
but aaahmm , I have to be up in a few . gross .
I’ll be back soon ……… with something of substance . mmmmhm .
“My son, obey your father’s commands, and don’t neglect your mother’s instruction. Keep their words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck. When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up, they will advise you. For their command is a lamp and their instruction a light; their corrective discipline is the way to life. It will keep you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of a promiscuous woman. “
– Proverbs 6:20-24
HEY GUYS ! So how was your Black History Month ?
… *cricket cricket* … oh .
I don’t know if it’s just me but it seems that every year the idea of Black History Month (BHM) gets pushed closer to the back burner . I mean its the shortest month of the year , why can’t we dedicate one month out of the year to show some respect to the people who have and still are contributing to Black History ?
Since I did not see or hear much about any events in the GTA for BHM I took it upon myself to watch movies and research with my family and I was pretty moved by what I learned . I’m not good at following one person’s life especially someone historical . Many people I know have idols that they know inside out but I really cannot be bothered with dem tings enuh … So I took the time to research Malcolm X , Oprah , Martin Luther King Jr. and Muhammad Ali . All of their stories were moving but I was particularly interested in Muhammad Ali’s .
He was so into himself ! Like he was the typical hot boy that knew what he was capable of . “I cannot be beat !” With all that talk I thought he was gonna get his behind dealt with . And the way he was able to articulate was … sweet . I watched an interview he had and one of the questions they asked him was Would You Want to be President? I was expecting a pretty generic reply, nothing to be memorable but he made a statement that had me thinking . Around the time that Ali was in the spotlight racism was still a serious issue . So when he answered no I was not surprised, but it was his reasoning that was memorable (If I can find the video again I will link it ). Imagine we’re all sailing on a ship . If for all these years when you were nothing but a “coloured man” they did not look at you to become captain why is it now that I am “Muhammad Ali” that you want me to think about being captain? The ship must be sinking or something! That’s kind of how it went but the way he said it was funny . Simple moments like that where a man of colour can go on TV and properly articulate his views is amazing and attractive … yeah I know he’s old but just let it be (lol.)
But in all honesty why is it so hard for the public to embrace BHM ? It seems like February gets overlooked because of all the Valentine’s Day propaganda . I mean February 1st a few of the people I follow on Twitter will say Happy Black History Month but then a week in , the conversations on my timeline change to talk about who is doing and getting what for Valentine’s Day … which is cute BUT there is more to February than the one day of mixed reviews and loverly chocolate . Btw, let me just say February 15th is one of the best days of the year, all the chocolates I like are on clearance (woo woo *pelvic thrust) . Anyways , I was talking to my younger sister and she was telling me about her schools plans for BHM… and there didn’t seem to be anything happening which just blew me away . But then half way through the month they decided to dedicate the last week of the month to shine light on memorable black people . I’ll take what we can get but it’s sad to me that this is how things have become . At my high school we had speakers come in , performances … and I think that’s all but I mean we had something . These are elementary school children , if you don’t plant the seeds now what makes you think they’re gonna care in middle school ? high school ? university ?? Not many .
But the month is over . I’m still fascinated by the history of my people and I will try to post different things that I see . I know this post is quite late but better later than never , yeah ? word .
