Okay… so after watching about 2/3 of the BET awards (yes, I switched to HBO for the Entourage season premiere) I have to say Alicia Keys is one of my favorite artists. I had forgotten how much I loved her. “Diary of Alicia Keys” is a great album, so I recommend revisiting it.
*Good song on the album that went under the radar- “Feeling U, Feeling Me” (2:08 of goodness if you ask me.)
*Oh and the 2010 BET awards were definitely better than last year’s. I’m glad Jay-Z/Alicia took best collab.
so… I did go get it like I said I would a year ago and I’m really trying to give it a chance. It’s such a girl album, but I’m sure I’ll like it when I’m sad. In conclusion, I hope “Thank Me Later” does push over a million copies because Drake does deserve it. Shoutout to Young Jeezy for his feature on Unforgettable.
Well… pretty much flipping out over this speech I have to give at graduation. I think I’m over-stressing it but… anyways we’ll see how it goes. Anyone ever have trouble letting go of the past (how things used to be, old friendships, etc.)? Yeah, well I do. I hate seeing the people I’m closest to change for the worse. And I really hate to judge people and tell them that what they’re doing is wrong, because most of the time I’m all for letting people live their lives even if they’re just gonna get fucked in the end. I guess I think that they’ll just learn from their mistakes or something. But at the same time it hurts me on the inside because what we had, our friendship, is no longer the same. There are some Nas lyrics that sum my thoughts up pretty well, but I don’t know them by heart so I’ll have to go google real fast.
“But uhh, a thug changes, and loves changes, and best friends become strangers, word up” …The Message… -Nas
haha… okay so back in the day when I listened to Nas those lyrics seemed way better than they seem to me now. but it gets the point across.
alright new thought- do you ever feel like you’re the ugly duckling? OK, i know.. damn that’s an old elementary school quote but still. sometimes I hate feeling like the ugly friend. especially when you go out with lots of people.. even if you’re social you’re still not going to get paid attention to. at least that seems to be the trend when you’re a girl. but at the end of the day… honestly you have to recognize all the good things around you and embrace those. it’s so damn hard to do that, but i’m gonna work on it. and by the way.. if you love someone, tell them that everyday. especially when you go to sleep, get off the phone with them or whatever the situation. you’ll regret it if you don’t. tomorrow is never guaranteed.
and never forget about your family. they’re the ones that love you unconditionally. i know everyone’s family is different, but at least give props to all of those that have supported you throughout your life. and by support i mean by giving you advice, encouragement, things like that.
that’s really all i have to ramble about for this first post. i’m aware that my layout is a default one and i’ll get to working on that sometime when i feel inspired. aight.. and i apologize for not capitalizing the beginning of my sentences and i especially apologize for the undercase ”i’s”. Yeah, I’m really annoyed by that too. I’m not sure why I felt so lazy or why I suddenly started capitalizing them now. but anyways love, peace, skeet, and cheese!
