Think ABout It
Yesterday my Crime Prevention & Control teacher said something that really stuck out to me “Uneducated people do not have opinions. They have prejudices” As the campaigns for the 2012 elections start; educate yourselves and make sure you know who you’re voting for based on what YOU think, not based on what people around you think. “He’s awesome because...
Thus The Music Stops

In this new book, Ive killed off...
I didn’t get to post my scripture yesterday due to a messed up access pass [Dont ask] butttttt I DO have a scripture that really speaks to me and I want to share it: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)
Calls me ugly: Calls me sexy: Calls me cute: Calls me fat: Tells me I’m wrong: Tells me a boring story: Tells me they love me: Tells my parents about what I did over the weekend: And when you reblog this I’ll be like:

Think About It
Last qoute from this book I promise lolz! “I read, wrote and figured out all by myself what exactly the “problem” part of the “Negro problem” was. Black people don’t read” - David Matthews #IntellectPow Educate yourselves.
Think About It
I then fell victim to the same intellectual anorexia that has starved the black urban male for generations. I began to associate the display of intellect with white; which was “uncool” - David Matthews Think about what he’s saying, why it’s important, and why it should change.
Think About It
Another quote from my LOVELY book! When you’re white failure is a tragedy. When you’re black it’s a statistic. - David Matthews Think about that
Song Of The Day - I'll Be There
Today is day 12 of my “New College Life Series” Tomorrow my friends get here! (I moved early). I wanna take this post to THANK those who have REALLY had my back. Id like to post a VERY special thank you to my spiritual warrior/bestie/big sister, Kady, who’s been there in a MAJOR way. You girl, are AWESOME. We working on this big breakthrough, together. And we gon make something...
Think About It!
I read this earlier this morning in a book I am reading and I wanted to share it with yall: “Racism is NOT blindness. It is a sight that REFUSES to be clouded by the heart OR the mind” - David Matthews. Think about that!
Song Of The Day - Defying Gravity
This is day 11 of my “New College Life” Series and also the day IM MOVING! By the time this posts, I shall most likely be settled into my little apartment (I published early and put it in a queue). Now that Im finally here, my MAIN goal is: Prove everyone wrong, defy the odds, and be HAPPY. And with that simple message, I present my song of the day: GLEE Cast - Defying Gravity ...
Song Of The Day - Country Strong
This is day 10 of my “New College Life” Series In ONE day I’ll be leaving! Note from my attitude and the posts Ive been posting; people think Im just dreaming. But to those people, I laugh. Im stronger than I’ve EVER been. Fighting harder than I’ve EVER fought. And I’ll accomplish more than you ever IMAGINED. And with that I present my song of the day: ...
Song Of The Day - I Can Do Bad
This is day 9 of my “New College Life series” Ya know, people have ALOT of opinions about some of EVERYTHING. But my ONLY opinion in life is simple: I can fail & mess up on my OWN. As witnessed in yesterday’s post; fear has killed enough. I dont need extra negativity killing even more. If you’re cut off its because you’re not healthy to my life & I got...
New College Life Series Update
Sooo its been a full week of my “New College Life” series This is my first weekly update post Pretty bland actually, Im mainly working on finishing packing. I have THREE DAYS until I roll off to Murfreesboro! I have my schedule perfected, my job applications sent in, my housing handled and my financial aid set… Now, lets see if I can get through moving without a hitch! If I...
New College Life - Goals

My Sunday Scripture
In accordance with my Song Of The Day I would like to quote a scripture concerning fear: Fear not, for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My right hand of rightness and justice - Isaiah 41: 10
Song Of The Day - Hello Fear
This is day 8 of my “New College Life” series. This also starts a new tradition; any Sunday songs posted from this point on will be whatever gospel song speaks to my current life mode plus an accompanying scripture :D Yesterday, I talked about not being afraid because this situation is temporary. Today, I wanna talk about saying goodbye to fear as a whole. Those of you that have...
Song Of The Day - Wasted
This is day 7 of my “New college life” series! On this note, I wanna say: Im running away & cutting people off mainly because Ive been WASTING time waiting on life to change. I keep shuffling the same crappy hand when I SHOULD be creating a new deck. From August 24th on, Im no longer wasting time on those that are not worth the time. And with that I present my song of the day: ...
Song Of The Day - One Step At A Time
This is day 6 of my “New college life” series! Yesterday saw a lot of soul searching. I found it in my heart to apologize & it went haywire and was replied to with a VERY hateful, spiteful message.. And with all that hate spewed at me; I didn’t cuss, I simply said everything I had to say was said, let me live my life, and goodbye… I also found it in me to have a mature...
When you throw something at your friend but it...
Song Of The Day - Happy
This is day 5 of my “New College Life” series. Yesterday, I said I deserve to be truly happy. And not just pretend to make everyone else happy. And im doing just that. HUNDREDS dont agree… But ask me if I care. Im not seeking approval; Ive wasted time doing that LONG enough. Now, im just gonna be happy. Yesterday, I sat down and wrote letters that brought up feelings I would...
Song Of The Day - Breakaway
Today is day 4 of my “New college life” series. Yesterday, I spoke about being caged. Always having to pretend its all good when its really not. And I noted that not every poor bird breaks free; however, I am determined to do it. Breaking away is vital in not only being true to yourself but also being HAPPY. And I deserve to be happy, regardless of what anyone says. And with that I...
Question for my followers.
saydee: Lets say Theres this kid named peter piper &he decides to pick a peck of….o pickled peppers i guess. How many pickled peppers would peter piper pick??
Song Of The Day - Caged Bird
This is day 3 of my “New college life” series Today is slightly an extension of yesterday. Everyone SAYS they listen but no one really does. They HEAR but fail to pay attention. And thus, you become a caged bird. Trapped in your own, unheard thoughts. No every bird breaks free, but I will. Remember that. And with that I present my song of the day: Alicia Keys - Caged Bird Right now...
Why talk when what i say is not being heard...
Song Of The Day - Listen
This is day 2 of my “New college life” series. Ive talked about running away… I guess I should put out my reason why. Ive learend that people dont listen; at least they dont listen to the important things. And when you’re not heard for SO long: you stop talking. But when you start talking again; you’ve done something wrong. Soooooo its best to start over, with those...
saydee: I am probably one of the nicest people youll ever meet honestly. So idk why people choose to cross me like ive done something to them. I WILL do something if you dont leave me alone though.
If some things dont change soon I am going to be...
Song Of The Day - Runaway
This is the first of my “New college life series” I start this series quite simply: I gotta get out. *sigh* Life makes no sense. I have no idea how people can bluntly mistreat you, sit in your face as if they’ve done nothing wrong, call all of the world and act like you’re the blame & the wonder why you’re angry… LOOK IN THE MIRROR; THAT’S WHY IM...
that pissed off moment the vending machine takes...
xxcoolstorybroxx: BITCH GIVE ME MY SHIT!
random thoughts right now.
nosousual21: If Cinderella’s shoe fit perfectly, why did it fall off? What is another word for a thesaurus? If you’re underwater, would you be able to cry? Why do feet smell and noses run? If you expect the unexpected, won’t the unexpected be the expected? If No One Is Perfect What Does Practice Make ?
When you have the same class as your best friend.

smokemystonerboner: Best idea ever. genius.
saydee: I hate when people talk to me like im fucking stupid! And its always the ones who know THE LEAST! It pisses me off when people assume im some type of idiot.
