Dreaming and Creating

Turned 20 yesterday. Today I'm working on starting my own company that should revolutionize the way college aged and professional women work with one another and for the betterment of women and girls in the urban community. More updates coming soon, PEACE!

Quote

May those that love us, love us.


And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping.

Power of Prayer

HBCU Life: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly Pt. 1



Ahhh. The joys of HBCU life. Whether you're alumn or currently enrolled you can testify that there's nothing like a rally, night in the cafeteria, or spring afternoon on the yard at a Historically Black College. I would even go out on a limb and say that there is no experience that is even comparable to that held at and HBCU. Don't agree? Well, pardon my Bison bias.

 During my five semesters at Howard I've had beyond my share of good times i.e. road trips out of state, enough hours of  "conscious" and "enlightened" talk to create a feature length documentary, and house parties that cracked until the cops came knockin' (which the just about always did). 

 I have created memories that I pray I'll never forget, but for every one I plan to hold on to there is twice the more that I can't wait to dump. Yerp, it's true. HBCU life is the perfect definition of a "the good, the bad, and the ugly" type deal. I love my school, but since my mother left me on campus with my bags Freshman year August of 08 I've dealt with enough of the bad to last me a lifetime. 

What could be so bad you ask?

Maybe this new addition to my room at 11:00 at night a couple of weeks back. Think that's bad? There's more. Here are my top five:

1. The American Roach. These little (or not so little) ones reign supreme in my dormitory. Regular roaches are scared of you. These will call you out of your name, and then ask you what your problem is.
 

2. The ever faithful lack of heat when its cold and air conditioning when its hot. You can't always count on your financial aid, but you can be sure that you'll be coolin' in the winter and sweating in the spring!



3. Since you can't bring fluffy to school, they thought it'd be cool to provide you with a new furry pet. And no, it's not a small dog. 


4. The constant need to keep up with the Joneses, or shall I say the Harvards? We at Historically Black Colleges have a unique culture and academic structure, but the people at the top who don't connect with the culture or understand insist upon attempting to assimilate to gain greater "respect" and recognition from those outside the institution. This is done, in most cases, to stimulate cash flow from those who could care less about the HBCU dynamic and historical value.



 5. Sports. Enough Said. 




Straight ugly! I love my school and wouldn't have chosen another in its place. I can never pay enough homage to this place that has given me some of my greatest friendships, stimulated some of my greatest intellectual thought, and brought about epic life changing situations. No doubt I always will love this place, but damn. Hopefully I can strike it big and make it rain into some type of donation fund for the kids coming up after me. But yet, would the experience still be the same without the woes? I may not have become the woman I am today if I didn't have to kill a roach once in a while or pretend my room was a spa sauna.

#dearfuturehusband

Twitter trending topics are hilarious. Especially those that deal with sex, love, and relationships. A favorite that seems to revive itself more often than necessary is the #dearfuturehusband or #dearfuturewife topic. It's cute and rather interesting to see what the people I follow think are the most important aspects of matrimony and building a life together with another person.  If you know me you're aware that I love love and all the mushy stuff. I hold a few ideas of my own on how my future marriage will be, and knowing my crazy self we will have an awfully good time, so...
