+ the new gig in the new studio is turning out to be an excellent place to improve my sales tactics and challenge myself as an instructor and inventor. there’s so much room for experimenting and collaboration, and i’m so happy when i’m there.
+ my love is pretty stellar in many ways, but mostly for allowing me to indulge fully in my goofy outbursts and for making the most bombass flapjacks!
+ the apartment search is going well. we just found one in our ideal location near the park and close to the subways. if all goes well, we’ll be making a home on august 1. (ohemgee!)
+ my sibling brings me so much joy.
+ it seems i’ve got these little tumors under my spell! the ring is working and the herbal tinctures and organic vitamins are seeming to work too. yaay fer mah lady bits!
+ i’ve successfully completed five weeks with my yarn braids and i’m hoping to unleash my luminous ‘fro before next weekend. i. can’t. wait. my new growth is bananas!
+ i used my newly acquired confidence as a self-employed business women to demand a refund for half fulfilled services from a studio i rent from. my demands were met and i gained some well deserved respect! go team!
+ my birthday is in exactly 22 days! it’ll be the last one of my twenties. time just keeps going, doesn’t it?
+ And so it goes… you put your faith in the universe and she decides that Bonnaroo 2012 is in fact not in your future. What a monumental shame.
+ I always have to suppress my chuckles when I’m having a conversation with someone who thinks it’s much more polite or politically correct to whisper descriptive words & phrases like “black girl”, “married to an Indian”, “He’s gay”. Like… really?! Hahahahah…
+ I’m finally feeling like I can get my financials in order and I’m making the vow to spend less of it on objects and more of it on experiences… classes, travels, concerts and events, philanthropic things.
+ The next few weeks are going to be an incredible test on my ability to handle stress. With two showcases to light, a new job, lots of birthdays, showers, calendar balancing, etc, I keep having to fight off these severe surges of unbridled panic. My remedies: a cheapo deal on unlimited yoga and a spa date with mom.
+ Brooklyn is a dream, but if I had the choice of which side of the river I’d like to live on, the city would be home.
+ It boggles my mind how many objects I own. The sheer number of things competing for space in my head and living quarters is unreal. Just the amount of energy I expend on cataloging it all, forgetting about them, rediscovering them, debating on their past, present, and future with me…! I need to seriously detox all of my sh*t!
+ It seems this nuvaring is doing me some good. I feel like my normal self again and I feel like my body intuition is back as well. I’ll have to see what this week (month 2, week 4) will be like to make a conclusive decision, but I think I’m going to be okay. My mom’s been cooking beef and greens every time I come home. Thank goodness for moms, huh?!
you MUST let me know how this turns out! Is it color or just the conditioner?
Hey mama! Both actually. It keeps my hair dark, so when summer comes the sun doesn’t turn my hair brown. and the conditioning is the best part. i rarely have the time to putter around for 6 hours to do this, but it turns out just how I like it every time… dark and lovely heheh :)
working on my bantu knots… pictures by morning.
