rAdomneSS (VIIII)

i keep getting sick...this time it was fluid in my lungs and sinuses...SUCKS...
but with this new asthma and allergy specialist i am seeing we shall hopefully see a better season

did i tell you guys that i am now on allergy shots, i am also on a sinus rinse, two nasal sprays AND an inhaler...i have to do this twice a day! then you add in being sick and you add meds to take in the am and then in the pm...plus another inhaler...again, totally SUCKS

being sick kept me from doing something that i wanted to do this week too...

i was to go with Kiamsha to Charlotte to the Annual ASALH conference...do youth day and actually sit on a panel to talk with Dr. John Hope Franklin...if you haven't read any of his work especially Mirror to America you need to pick it up...its totally inspiring, changing my life to read about a man being totally dedicated to education and to himself...despite all of his "obstacles" that came his way, he maintained and prevailed...

but i couldn't go with bronchitis...it wouldn't have been smart on my part

the other thing is, i terribly miss bonding with the young people...i love young people...and i love being around my older mentors and the historians...its always a weekend of learning and growing and i totally miss being a part of it

so what to do being that i am coming off of being sick and no one is around...NOTHING

me love, has to work, and all of me gurls are either in NC, NJ or just plain busy...so that leaves me to have ME TIME...

if you have been reading this for a while you know that i truly enjoy having me time, but sometimes i would much rather prefer not to have it...

like last weekend...me and me love (i think that'll be what i call him from now on, me love) spent the entire weekend together....i started feeling sick the middle of last week, but my cousin was coming into town...so we decided to have a double "date" on Friday night...

didn't really turn out that way, me and me love got into it...pretty badly too...so the Friday night out was can we say cancelled...

HOWEVER, we went back and forth and were able to work through it...arguing can be brutal, but can either pull you further apart, or it can bring you closer together...it basically takes two parties willing to STOP and listen to one another's point of view...a lot of times when you are upset the ONLY point of view you see or hear is YOUR point of view...but if you really care about someone you are willing to communicate and really LISTEN to what they have to say...and IF you openly and do that, you may just find yourself a step further along than when you started

he and i are both strong willed persons, but we are learning to listen and communicate, and because of that we were able to spend the day on Saturday shopping in Baltimore, the flea marker, Towson, and Security...ended at PG Plaza and eating some Uno's...we had a good time...like friends it was a good feeling to have a spend time with me love, me friend...

makes me think of all of the new music that has come out this summer...its my other friend, my other love -music just does something totally for me...it can make my mood. it connects with my soul and there have been several albums this summer that have connected with me and made me believe in music again...
Common's Finding Forever
Talib's new one
Ye's Graduation is some of his finest work, and whatever you have to say about his spoiled ways, he can at least laugh at himself...and if you don't believe in yourself than who will
and Jill's new one is WHAT, that bidness!!!! she does it again, and if you don't already have it, its a MUST buy...
i bought Keisha Cole's CD but can't get into it just yet you know...

but either way, its been a summer of good music, felt like every week i was updating my "in rotation" segment on the blog because i would be rocking NOTHING but that CD until something else came out and as soon as it did, there i go, replacing it and then NOTHING but that new CD would rock in the player....honestly if i had it like that i would buy two of everything 1 for the truck and 1 for the house...

did you all see those shoes below, i love them! hopefully i'll get them ordered soon...

today is my mommy's birthday, her is 58 whole years YOUNG...she wouldn't mind me telling you because she has never been one of those ladies that doesn't tell her age, she doesn't look 58 to say the least...clear beautiful skin...beautiful smile, bright eyes...my mom is a beautiful woman inside and out and i loved her with everything that i am...i have said this before, but if i am half the woman she is i am already there...she is my inspiration...totally love her and my daddy...we didn't do much but eat some catfish and laugh and joke for a while...i took her gift (she wasn't expecting it since i am broke...) but she liked it and her card...her and my daddy leave tomorrow for Alabama for a week, so you know that'll be rough...but they will be back, for now at least...

me loves birthday is this Friday...its hard trying to figure out what to do for him...already got his one gift...he wanted the 8s (Jordan's) and so i got them, i guess that's a big deal he was really happy...now what to do...i'll do something simple and sentimental...but not to mussy, he is a guy...

Why did I get married? comes out on his birthday too...maybe we'll check that out, but there is an exhibit that he has been wanting to see, and its over on the 14th so maybe i'll take him there...ehhhh well i'll figure it out...

ever wonder why the people you are around you pick up on there stuff...sayings/phrases...like HELLO-totally KC circa 2006....geezy peezy-me love...heifa-my momma...the list goes on and on...HA! but they take stuff from me too...

there has been a lot of relationship stuff going on lately too...just all around...sometimes it gets overwhelming...but i remain hopeful that all will find those that are involved...now more than ever i understand the importance of doing things in "order" by order i mean the way that the Almighty has set things up for us...you know what i am saying...so many times we are quick to jump into relationships, to bed, and living with each other, and in doing that you are giving a piece of yourself...a piece of your story that you basically "rob" your future husband/wife from having because you have already shared those things with someone else, leaving the ONE feeling like they have been cheated in some way shape or form...that's why its important to take your time and do things in "order" and officially so that you can share those special things with the ONE that is to be your partner...and yea i know sometimes those partnerships don't always last, BUT if you do it in "order" its more likely to last, my opinion anyway

did i say i love learning? its time to go back to school people, i really think its time...time to really get project management certificate...real talk...

oh, i wanna move...tired of this here apartment, lease up in March...time to move on and to other stuff...

ok, this is long enough...if you read it, you must really wanna know what's been up with me...and for that i thank you
