Aside

Hey everyone, I’m 21 ! Finally legal everywhere *flips table and praise breaks*

On a serious note, I didn’t expect to spend my birthday on crutches .. Well no one expects to get injured but it’s just really unfortunate. But as always, God has a bigger plan for me and right now he is doing a pretty good job of showing me who is and has been there for me .

BUT FORREAL DOE YA’LL BETTA BE CAREFUL IN THESE SKREETS . THESE ROADS GOT NO SALT ON EM . BUT HONESTLY , THIS PROVES MY THEORY ABOUT SCARBERIA . I’ve gone to fetes for a few years now and the one time I venture out there is when I fracture my ankle ? Yeah no thank  you smh .

So quick recap of EXACTLY what happened to my ankle because some people feel its their story and they wanna tell people =)

SO on Saturday night I went out for my friend’s birthday out in the badlands of Scarberia , we got there all in one piece and we were having a few drinks in the car before we got into the venue . Now I don’t get drunk because ONE I’m super annoying, TWO I don’t like the feeling and I don’t see the need to be drunk to have fun, THREE I’ve turned a new leaf lol . So that night I had enough for a buzz . After we decided we were ready to go inside of the venue I was the last person and my friend was calling me to get a bottle so I was walking to him and when I got to him I slipped and fell, the end .

I get upset just thinking about it but this injury may have been a blessing in disguise . It has given me time to think about so much things that I wanna change about myself and what’s happening in my life . For one thing I don’t really take much time to take care of myself , things like taking care of my skin, hair, nails, and my room . If I’m not working , I’m at school, if I’m not at those two places I’m tryna get out of the house to see my homies . Now with me being without a vehicle*sigh* and I don’t like asking a lot of people for rides to places I have time to just chill because transit can’t take me everywhere I wanna be and taxi’s are H’EXPENSIVE tuh rass , my goodness lol . I’ve also learned there are only a few people I can call on in emergencies , which is great . Everyone has a life and I understand, it’s just crazy to see that you would bend your back for some people that wont even lift a finger for you when it comes down to the wire . Life lessons , right ? Old Sherice would be upset and cut off most people but there is no need to be upset over some things . No malice, just keeping things moving . I’ve also learned that I’m rarely around to help my sisters and watch them grow . I’m always on the go but even when I do come home I’m sleeping or in my phone not really paying attention to them . Over these past two weeks I’ve witnessed how smart my sisters are and that they are so loving . They bring me pillows to elevate my ankle, bring me food, help me get around the house, and play cards with me to keep me entertained ; it’s so cute ! I’ve also learned that I tend run from being straight up with people . I let things slide and then wonder why they treat me a certain way . If you only message me when I post a photo on IG or when all your other “options” are not available just know that iOS7 allows me to block numbers and you’re on that list =] .

All in all , I’ll be walking in a few weeks, back to school, then vacay . Super excited .

God bless xox .

5 Reasons Why We Should Leave Our Smartphones Alone

Thought Catalog

“I cannot stress enough that the answer to life’s questions is often in people’s faces. Try putting your iPhones down once in a while, and look in people’s faces. People’s faces will tell you amazing things.” Amy Poehler

1. Because it’s slowly eating away at your soul.

The next time you find yourself completely wrapped up in a text, stop and observe your physical appearance. Head down, shoulders rounded, eyes squinted in concentration—sounds pretty sexy, right? While we might be crafting clever, appealing conversations over text, we forget that we are also unconsciously communicating to the people actually around us. We may feel like the wittiest poets in iPhoneland, but there’s a good chance that we look like phone-clutching zombies in the real world.

2. Because it’s straight-up rude.

Texting in theaters, texting at dinner, texting while a real, live person is speaking to you, these are all things that…

10 Old Fashioned Dating Habits We Should Make Cool Again

Thought Catalog

1. Coming to the door to pick someone up.

I think we’ve all had it with the incredibly unromantic “here” text, and meeting up always seems to be more casual and platonic than the alternative. Of course, meeting someone from online or any circumstance like that would probably be the exception to this rule, but generally: the 30 seconds it takes to get out of a car or cab and knock on the door makes a huge difference.

2. Trying to dress really nicely for a date.

“Nicely” means different things for different people, so I think it’s just a matter of putting effort into how you put yourself together to go out with someone. It’s not about wearing suits and petticoats again, but just realizing that, whether or not we like to accept it, appearance does count for something, and we should do our best to make sure that…
