Hey guys! It sucks that I have to be so busy at a time where I feel I should be the most vocal. In light of the Eric Garner case, it is no surprise that I’m both disgusted & angered by the result of placing decision making in the hands of people who lack both… Read More Briefing on the Eric Garner case
I’m obsessed with “3005” by Childish Gambino, hence the title ^ aha! I’ll post the video below, after the post ↓ Hey guys! Tonight i’m compelled to write out my frustrations… particularly concerning complacency & uncertainty. If it’s one thing I’ve learnt about myself, it’s that I can’t stay doing the same thing for too long… Read More ’til 3005! (Thursday)
There are two glasses in front of me, both half empty & containing different substances. One contains the sweetest juice ever, but the aftertaste is bitter & raw. The other contains something toxic… Addictive. And I’m sipping from them both.
I procrastinated with this one until the day changed. For that I apologize! Don’t mind the day. With little to do, my days are mostly consumed with long hours of thinking (or over-thinking, whatever). I’d much rather have a full day of activities planned & – yes I’m saying this – sometimes I miss the… Read More Casual Tuesday (late)
I’m 19 years of age, soon coming to the end of my teenage years. For every single year of my life, I’ve learnt something that has shaped me into the person I am today. I can honestly say though that I’ve learnt the MOST about life in the past 2 years. This past year gone especially, I’ve… Read More These Days…
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t in the mood to post anything these past 2 days & I’m not pleased with my current site stats -_- *thumbs down* but I have been productive though! I’ve been working on a few projects – a personal one & one for a group assignment for one of my classes.… Read More Thurs-Fri-Saturday. 🙂
This is strange. Really strange. Today I learned how to psyche myself into an overly calm state of mind. I can’t say it lasted because my thoughts are racing right now but I did tell myself to chill & I just did. Currently I’m thinking about my “endless possibilities” for change. I’m feeling really strange… Read More Cool, calm & collective Wednesday.
I have this thing where when someone says/does something they know will hurt my feelings, I automatically stop trusting them with my feelings… I stop wanting to tell them how I feel & stop giving them my opinions. I no longer want them to relate to me. I really just stop caring about how they… Read More Feelings Rant.
That really was the best title I could come up with today. Somewhat vague I know but the smiley face is an indication that it’s a good “Ahhhhhh” Ha! I’m in a good mood right now for 3 lovely reasons: 1. I spent 10+ hours lazing around in bed, talking to Mr. Jones. I know,… Read More Ahhhhhhh! 🙂 Sunday.
I took just over a week off from posting my Allie Daily’s to work on the layout of my site as well as complete my Commonwealth Women in Leadership Essay for the competition (gotta hand in by tomorrow night! **fingers & toes crossed** But I’m baaack 🙂 & you can expect daily updates from today onward >>>Currently… Read More Thoughtful Saturday (I’m back!)
[I’m no expert, these are just opinions/ideas] What do all people have in common that often onset conflicts within relationships? Ha! We ALL have flaws – those things about ourselves that are generally frowned upon or considered “poor relationship qualities”…those “issues” we battle with that remain with us (or not?), no matter how much we… Read More Rela. Talk #1: My Flaws that need FIXING!
I was just telling a friend about how I prefer talking to strangers over my acquaintances. I really do though… To me, I always gain more out of a conversation with a complete random. Strangers don’t know me personally [obviously, they’re strangers!] so they can’t judge me. Like Kendel Hippolyte said [& I often quote]… Read More I like Strangers.
First off, Happy Easter everyone! For all those who celebrate Easter & are familiar with what it represents, you know the significance of Good Friday on the Christian calendar. The biggest lesson today is that of ‘FORGIVENESS‘ & the freedom that comes with it. Forgiveness is an act of Love & Strength. It takes a lot to… Read More Good Friday | Forgiveness
Ahhhhh, I need to stop posting so late. I’m one of the blessed FEW people that know the positive, educational wonders of the Internet (ha, right!) so I get distracted easily. I was always a movie person so I decided to catch up on the latest. ‘The Croods’ (animated) was really nice; I watched that… Read More Hell of a Wednesday.
It’s almost Wednesday morning but I’ll update you on my Tuesday this week. So far my mind’s been consumed with thoughts of change… What my next step will be & what I want/need in my life right now. I’m aiming for further simplicity. Why? Because simple is better than overly extravagant. In different aspects of… Read More Hello Tuesday.
My weekend was tough. I didn’t go anywhere except for fishing with my father yesterday…it’s not something I usually do…usually I’d sit home online or walk up to the pool & that’s my Sunday spent. But I felt like doing something different & I hung around…Honestly, I was actually in a state of bliss for… Read More The Weekend.
How do you accept your mistakes if you never acknowledge them? The answer is you CAN’T. & you could never overcome something you don’t realize is happening. No matter how much you see, hear & feel something, if you don’t acknowledge it, it might as well does not exist. That was my problem. I couldn’t… Read More Accepting my consequences.
One of the topics I discussed earlier today was COMFORT, in particular being comfortable with oneself and comfortable in one’s relationships. So what does it mean to be comfortable? ~> “comfortable: affording or enjoying contentment and security; free from stress or tension.” – Websters Dictionary. Now I personally think being comfortable keeps people in the right frame of… Read More COMFORT RANT!
Do you remember that feeling of being happily alone? Before you knew love & how greatly it could effect you. That satisfied, yet yearning feeling of knowing you were complete within yourself but curious to have more, feel more, submit to something…someone else… It’s almost an empty sensation now… after love came & went &… Read More Before love.
