Being Juanette

 
                                          Hey y'all. Remember me? Yeah, I know....

 I have been working extra hard at school this year and it ain't even funny. I have a ton of responsibilities outside of my teaching duties and it has been very, very un-awesome as of late.
  I know that un-awesome is not a word but it is fitting.
 
BET re-ran "Being Mary Jane" (y'all know that's my ish) and someone sent me a message on my Facebook page that they watched it and it reminded them of me. I can dig it, it reminds me of me too. Y'all now that I loves me a quote just like M.J.

 But then it made me sad.
Because although Mary Jane is smart, beautiful, successful and a lot more well to do than I am, she is, in fact; alone. 
 When Mary Jane tells her friend Mark that she doesn't want to be a cliche, she wants to be the exception to the rule; I feel that. And settling for less than I deserve is not an option. So I guess what I should take out of this is that although Mary Jane is single, she is not a victim. She is not needy. And I'm not mad at her romantic life. At all. (Omari Hardwick? Stephen Bishop who retweeted my tweet about him so I feel that I know him in real life? Yes,  please.) So I'll take that comparison. And enjoy the journey along the way....

Glasses: BonLook
Scarf: Thrifted
Shirt: Zara
Jacket: Target
Skirt: Zara
 Bag: Zara
Shoes: Michael Kors

And besides....Mary Jane's booty ain't as big as mine so I have the advantage....
And I can't wait to see what happens next. For the both of us...

"One day you're actually going to believe that you're the baddest chick in the game like you purport to be." -Being Mary Jane

You look fabulous honey...love the whole fit! Consider your singleness as your time to get better acquainted with yourself and to prepare for The One when he comes along. I hope you carve out time to decompress and get some "me time" in between those added responsibilities at work!
