Sometimes the act of trying is the accomplishment.

Ok so right this past Saturday (the 15th) were the auditions for America's Next Top Model. Now anyone who knows me knows that I love the show, love modeling, and have tried out for the show 3 times previously. I always felt like it was "My Time" when I attended each casting but no avail I wasn't chosen any time.

The fear of not being chosen a 4th time was hanging over my head and almost kept me from going. The night before I was so upset because I wanted to wear the right thing and be perfect and nothing seemed right. I was beginning to stress myself out over a casting I hadn't even made it to and there was no guarantee I would make it lol.

Well long story short I attended but didn't make it (I know sad face lol). But you know what, I'm proud of myself. I went after something I really wanted. I received 2 interviews out of it while I was in line, which will be helpful to my future, AND I took the train to NY for the 1st time all by myself! So with that being said, I may not be in the running for ANTM but I overcame my fears and even embarked on new journeys! Every little bit counts and evidently this was not what God has in store for me. But you know what I will meet Tyra Banks one day, just on different terms :) . Thank you all for your encouragement prior to me going and keep me in your prayers because you are surely in mine.

NORAL art for my Birthday!!

So the 16th was my birthday and I am now 22!! Ok so my friend Laron makes customized apparel and accessories (t-shirts, bags, baby clothing, he does it all!) and I wanted a bag from him for the longest. Now my pockets are very stiff right now considering my unemployment status LOL so I wasn't able to get one. Well my bestie KyAsia suprised me yesterday and handed me a yellow bag custom made by Laron and I shed a couple of tears lol! I am in love! I felt like it was so personalized and had all of my personality on a bag of my favorite color!!!!

If anyone wants one let me know I will give you his contact info! NORAL art is going places so I suggest you get something now before everything is as expensive as gucci LOL. Please believe he is great at what he does and if you request something he can work with you and make it as flyy as possible. Thank you KyAsia and thank you Laron my birthday was complete! :)

Love takes time

So I was talking to my friend Michele yesterday at Six Flags and she was talking about how she blogged previously but it got kind of crazy so she stopped. The women on here are so confused about love and have a lot of question (as we women always do lol). I felt inspired by that especially considering I'm a hopeless romantic and I LOVE being in love, so maybe my words can help :).

I've learned that I can be very impatient. Things should happen when I went them to and that has been the mentality that I have had for a long time (its the leo in me). I have a history of running into the arms of love longing for its eternal embrace not realizing that the love I had with the individual was still premature. With my last boyfriend we barely knew one another but we were so captivated with one another that we fell very soon. We later felt the after shock of learning the important things about someone during a relationship that should have been known prior to. The things we found out caused problems and started arguments that could have been prevented if they were known earlier.

I believe love is patient, kind and gentle. Love takes its time and if you rush love you will get left with a whole heap of trouble. Although I really want to be in love, start my life, get married in the next 5 or more years, start a family and live happily ever after that may not be the path made for me. I have to let God do his thing and follow his lead. Although it's nice having that significant other, sometimes there are other things in life to be obtained prior to your "prince charming" coming along. I'm kind of talking to myself which is pretty funny, but hey helping self and others is always great because we both benefit. I think that's about it!

I love their love. Beyonce and Jay-Z do it big in every way and they don't care what anyone has to say about them! Plus everyone knows I love Beyonce and Jay-Z is one of the greatest rappers alive in my book!

Photo Shoot

Well just had a shoot to start my portfolio. Let me tell you I had a BLAST!

The shoot was with Les Sidweber. I went with friends to have shots done for fun previously with him but this time it was business. He was absolutely great and his ideas added an extra special detail that I needed.
Mom and Ky Asia were there for support and I'm glad I had them on my team! Ky recommended poses and mom was there with the hair (of course) lol. More pics on facebook but here's a taste. Next shoot I'm going to have long hair stay tuned! Enjoy!

Let's Talk Politics

Now, I would like to start this off by saying I am NOT trying to convince, persuade, or sway anyones judgement/feelings/choice. I am stating my opinion, which I am entitled to, and maybe I will shed some light on a perspective other than yours. Now.. let the games begin!
Ok so recently, since I'm home, I've been stuck watching MSNBC and CNN because that is all my aunt watches while I'm on the computer lol. I think its disgusting how the country is acting several months after Barack Obama has become president. There has never been such a display of over analytical, disrespectful and frankly unasked for controversy.

Barack Obama has displayed his birth certificate after the allegations of him not being a U.S. citizen (ridiculous) and people are still claiming he hasn't shown it lol. The issue of him smoking is tough because I'm not for it but the man has the right to do so! If its such a problem for the president to smoke because he's a role model then why do we sell them to everyday men who are role models to their own children? Think about it! Then we have those in the "real world" and government who are deciding to make everything complicated regarding the Stimulus Package. Well lets think, the more we resist on the package the easier it is to make Obama look as if he is not doing his job.
American people WE HAVE GOT TO GET IT TOGETHER! The harder we fight against our LEADER the worse it is for us. The slower the relief from the destruction the previous president has created occurs, the faster our economy goes into a hole. People take the pledge of allegiance daily and fail to realize what they are saying. One Nation Under God, Indivisible with liberty and justice FOR ALL!! So whether the president is black, white, green, or purple we have to trust that the man WE elected under the rules of the constitution and such is going to guide us. We may not always agree but resistance is futile and will only cause destruction.
Thanks a bunch! I feel better now lol.
