Jobs, Clark Kents, and poetry

hey guys. I know these all-word posts are pretty boring but i'll start back taking pictures soon..and getting pics off line and stuff... but for now you're just gonna be seeing these huge ARTICLES with words in all caps... So these past like 3 weeks i've been watching all the seasons of Heroes, which is only the best sci-fi show ever. but i CANCELLED!!!! television people just really don't know what they're doing sometimes. So my marathon is almost over. I've been trying to catch up with my sister who is at the end of season 3 and i'm at the end of season 2.this show really is FYE yall should watch it on netflix.

so i've been trying to get a job since the beginning of this year to no avail. I've probably completed over 30 applications already and it's just really sucky that all my friends have gotten jobs before me when i started looking before them. I think i'm have really bad luck and it sucks.

So i've been trying to write all kinds of poetry lately. I tried writing a rap for school about going to the workshops we have every week, about christianity, about sexuality, how dope i am(lol), relationships, etc. I keep coming up with the climax of the poem, but i can't seem to figure out the beginning of the poem...writing poetry, slam poetry at that, is not as easy as it sounds. I shouldnt be writing with competition in mind, but i am since i want to go to brave new voices again net year and have so much fun all over again..meeting new people and seeing old friends...well thats really all i had to shoes were hurting my feet so bad today i took them off in like 3rd period and didn't put them on after that. Even when i walked to the downtown ymca to my car. welp, bye guys...i just really need some people to talk to and i've heard that strangers give the best advise and can be the best listeners..thats why i started posting again. i feel heard.

Makeup for lost time/ this is for BNV

I'm sorry i haven't done one of these in like 8 months but that last semester of school was ROUGH!! i almost failed spanish...SPANISH!! that should be the class you automatically pass with an A!! but not at Hume-Fogg no no no no no they have to make it like learning chinese or something or russian or something. but that was last year... now im a JUNIOR!! UPPERCLASSMAN!!! 2014!!! WE RUN THIS!! and im takin: PreCal w/ Trig Honors, Lifetime Wellness, AP Physics B, this new AP Cambridge course, AP Lang and Comp, and US History Honors... that sounds real good and hard don't it. lol. But I'm trying to get all A's this year or at least A's and B's. I want to get a nose ring and my daddy said he'll let me get it if i make all A's this semester..that might be harder than i thought it would be but i'm up for getting what i want.

But let's get to what i really wanted to say...I went on two trips this summer. First i went to florida with the whole family...on my daddy's side...not including my great aunts and stuff...and i guess that was a fun trip other than the fact that we can NEVER live together time they wanna go on a trip they needa: 1. try to find a place actually on the beach, not an hour from it.. 2. find a hotel so each family can have its own room.. 3. go to florida for our family reunion instead of going when one of our other families is reuniting... 4. forget all the stupid plans and taco nights and salad bars.

The real trip i took this summer was to San Francisco, California to be apart of Brave New Voices 2012!!! I LOVED going to bnv. I met so many new people from all over the world that shared many things in common with me automatically for them just being there. We all wrote some type of poetry, we were creative, abstract thinkers, and we were open-minded and accepting of all races, sexualities, and religions. we come together like we were family already and made sure we knew it wasn't about the competition, it was about the poetry. I felt so close to all the poets and coaches there...except my own nashville. We were so separated it was CRAZY and DEPRESSING! I was envious of teams like Philly, New York, and Hampton Roads because they were practically in love with each other's personality. We, on the other hand, were in loathe with each other. We talked about each other behind our backs, we (they) talked about each other's poetry, we (they) talked about our coach, who has done all this work for us by himself. If it weren't for him we wouldn't have even been there in the first place...but im rambling. All i wanted to say was that i fell in love with bnv and being surrounded by like minded poets and people that related to my soul more than anything. i sorta found myself on that trip... :)

Open Mics and Stripes

So, I'm sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately, but I've been really tired when I get home after shool. Track is starting and it's really taking up a lot of my time. I don't have time to post everyday anymore, since I have to go to practice, ride the bus and domy homeworkeveryday after school. I really wish I could keep posting and blogging like I did before, but I just can't do it and be the good student and athlete I want to be. Academics is more important to me when it boils down to it since fashion is only a hobby right now for me. I'm going to try and post every few days, but I can't promise anything right now. And once track is over, I'll be back at it. But anywho, today I had an open mic to read at so I decided to not be so layed back like I've been every other day this week because I've been so tired in the mornings lately. But today, I made two new friends and I'm so happy about it. Their names are Sean and John and they area a part of the spoken word group that I'm a part of. Today there was an open mic and I read something and Sean read a lot of poems and he was just telling me that he wanted me to read another poem and we just started joking around and stuff with me, John and Sean. I wore this striped button down top with some black skinny jeans that my sister recently got me. my platform boots that I love, and a deep blue blazer. My sister got me some new cross earrings from Urban Outfitters and I have worn them twice. I LOVE them. A lot of people liked this top for whatever reason, it just looks like a top to me that I just so happened to like.

Homecoming 2012

So I go to Hume-Fogg Magnet High School and last night was our Homecoming dance and I threw it everywhere. I don't want to sound like one of those people, but I love to party. I love the atmosphere and the good energy and all the fun I have at parties and with friends and everything. I'm a true junkie and fun is my drug. I had so much fun at our homecoming. Everybody was giving my school heat just because they thought homecoming was really wack and the dj was really wack. I just said i  didn't care. I went there knowing that I was going to have fun whether the music was good or not and that's what I did. I shook life at that homecoming. Hahahahaha. I threw on two different guys and just dance with one guy who I thought was really cute and he started fanning me because he could see that I was getting hot. Isn't that so sweet of him? But I think I tore that entire homecoming up. Nobody got it like me. Nobody was on my level of high at that entire dance. But anywho... I wore an ivory lace fitted dress with a high collar. I had on a multi colored tartan bowtie I saw at TJ Max and a black velvet blazer to set it off. I rocked these black floral print wedges that I got online and I had on some simple studs. My makeup was done by yours truly. I tried this new purple tattoo ink gel eyeshadow that showed up MARVELOUS! I didn't think anybody could touch me because I was on top of the world. :) So here are some pics that my sister took right before I left.

I know I haven't been on in a long time, but I just had to take some time off. I had to get a few things in place in my life. I can't just spend all my time everyday posting. I have homework and it's been a HUGE load of homework this week. I needed to catch up with my work. I haven't been doing all of it, and I needed to do it. But this week was spirit week and I dressed up as a doll for monday, which was Extreme Makeover day. I thought that was the dumbest day ever since the next day was character day. Since I dressed up as a doll on makeover day, I didn't dress up as anything on character day. I wore these cute wide-leg pants that I got from Urban Outfitters. They are made with a floral print and I wore them with a sort of orange net tied crop top that I also got from Urban Outfitters. It's see through so I wore a gray cammi under it. I wore my platform booties. Even though it was a cute outfit that i loved, it was pretty cold outside in those pants. haha.

Days of Blaze: Day 4: Ketchup and Mustard

Today was the fourth day of Days of Blaze. I wore some red, wool, high-waisted pants with a yellow t shirt and this new blazer my sister got me sometime last week. It has a lot of sequince ans glitter fabric on it and I think it's really cute. I wore it with some owl earrings and my oxfords that hurt my feet whenever I wear them. haha. I just can't find any other shoes and don't have time to look for them. But I have to cut this post short. Go check out my sister, Broke Fatshion's, post here.

A Fasionator's Fantasy

At night, before I got to sleep
I take showers with sequince and glitter
that goes on shoes and blazers.
My earrings grow wings. Give my ears decor.
Denim blows my mind.
Blocking colors becomes my 9 to 5.
I close my eyes and become famous
A fashionator monochroming my brains out.
At night, before I go to sleep, I dream.

I wrote this today at my weekly spoken word workshop. I'm apart of southern word and we're a spoken word group. If you don't know exactly what spoken word is, it's just poetry. It's poetry, rapping, really any kind of poetry where you're speaking the truth. Not necessarily making it rhyme at the end, but it's poetry none the less. It was really short and everyone loved it, I  don't really know why, though. I'm confident in my work, it's just I didn't think was that great, so I don't know why everyone liked it. But today, it started snowing and I had to leave early so I couldn't really do the other prompt before I left, but I did write it down. And now I just have to write something for it. There's an event coming up that I really want to do. It's called Beyond the Truth and it's basically about things that you learn about the harsh world as you come of age and grow up from being a child and being told things about the world to becoming a teenager and learning things about the world. I think I'm going to write about basically having to transform into a teenager without having a mother to tell me how things are going to be and giving me advise. I'm thinking of maybe writing about going from being a very privilaged child to being a teen living with 4 otherpeople surviving on fixed income. I don't know. Whatever I write about has to be real and something personal to me that really relates to me. Wish me luck. :/
