Making the grade

Well the first week of school was last week and I would give it a solid B. I enjoy my team and my students this year are pretty good (so far) but I have some other grades that I would like to give out....

A Love Letter

Dear Gym,
Hi. I know I probably shouldn't even be contacting you, it's been a while since we've seen one another (two weeks.) I figured I would write this letter so that you would know how much you mean to me.

That Girl Good, She Got Talent

Shoutout to Bianca that I saw at Rudy's, one of my fave fried chicken eating joints while wearing this dress. She rolled down her window and told me that she loved my blog! #DayMade

Thought I would let y'all in on a few of my hidden talents...

Kitten Heels, Got My Life, and Staying Positive

 Please forgive the blurriness that are my photos, my photographer was not focused (focused, ha!), she was trying to text and take photos at the same time so now she is on probation.
(Can you place someone on probation if you're not paying them?)...oh, okay...

No Ways Tired

Whoop whoop! Hello my peoples!

Thank you all for the comments from my previous post, I really loved and appreciated the feedback. And shoutout to those of you who wanted to know the name of the hotel so that you can personally help ole dude sow what he has reaped, (reaped what he has sown? This always confuses me..)
I'm not advocating that anyone do anything rash but there are clues to the name of my hotel in my last post from my New York trip.
I'm just saying....#DontDoIt #OKMaybe #DontMentionMyName #ImJoking #YouCanMentionMyName

Please Don't Kill My Vibe

My phone rang. I looked down at it and couldn't stop smiling as I saw the name "Mike" pop up on my screen. Awesome possum! I thought as I answered it. "Hey babe, what's good?" he asked as I tried to make my voice sound regular and not like I was cheesing oh-so-hard.

(Took my hair down and got new glasses. Time for a change. I like it.)

The New York Times: Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of

After my People/Bic For Her photo shoot I had the opportunity to meet up with Audrey of Miss Moon's Musings for some tasty adult beverages, great conversation and lots of laughs. Audrey and I met in person during my last visit to NYC so I was excited to see her again. And when I tell you Audrey gives good voice, I mean it! She has the BEST voice, it's all soothing and seductive and stuff. And her stories about her job literally had me in tears. #TeamAudrey #BrooklynInTheHouse

The New York Times: Pose For The Camera Now, Click Click

The story of how my trip came to be: It was about a month and a half ago and I was on and they were asking for submissions for your must-have accessory. I submitted my photo (this one) and named my bracelets (of course) as my must have accessory which is such the truth. I think people were supposed to vote on submissions but I didn't think anything else about it until I was contacted by People about a month later letting me know that I was a finalist in the contest. Oh em geeeeeeeeeeee, what?!? I didn't even know what the prize was until they contacted me. I had to submit notarized information that I was who I said I was (Catfish, anyone?) and they completed a background check and then I was notified that I was one of four winners of the People magazine Bic For Her contest! I remember seeing the email on the last day of summer school and I could barely contain my excitement! I couldn't believe it and called my mom immediately. She was so excited even though I told her that I wasn't going to tell many people yet. She thought that I was crazy but I guess because it didn't feel real to me so I just wanted to let it marinate for a bit. 

The winners of the contest (us four in the middle), the marketing team, People Inc.

The New York Times: Hello Brooklyn!

I have been thinking of the words that I would use to describe my trip and I keep using the word amazing. As in 'causing great surprise or wonder; startlingly impressive.' And it was. I felt so fully in the moment every step of the way, I just wanted to take it all in and absorb everything. And I loved the experience.

Dead End

One last post before I'm off to the NYC. I think at this point I would pay someone to choose and pack my oufits for me, I hate packing! Prolly because I am limited as to what I can bring, I love to have options and my carryon will not let me be great.

Random Ramblings....

My mom makes up mnemonic devices or word associations to remember people's names and still gets them wrong. If I say that I have a friend named Jeremy, my mom will say "How's Laramie?"

Assume the Position

People make lots of assumptions about me and my life....
Apparently word on the street is that I am some jet-setting social butterfly with lots of options for male companionship. Now the social butterfly part is correct but the rest of it...

Not These Panny Drawers

Let's say I have a friend named Cherie Merie. And Merie had a friend named Raheem (not his real name. For real.) Raheem said that he met me years ago (I don't recall meeting him) and he had asked Merie about me but I had a boyfriend so nothing ever came of it. Until now....

These Are My Confessions....

 Hey y'all. I have been busy getting my life so hard lately. That's gonna be my new motto:
"Get yo life so hard."
Well, that and "All Gold Everything." (Just kidding, I hate that song. But I sing it when I hear it.)

Personal Anthem

Sometimes I think of the day that I've had and give it a song to describe my day. Or whatever I listen to on my way to work might be my theme song for the day.

Today's song would have been "Mr. Telephone Man" by New Edition cuz I'm waiting for a phone call....
