Our club sponsor is so mean and bitter. A part of me wants to stick it out while another part of me is sick of her rudeness&wants to quit asap. I’d hate to leave the club but putting up with her bull is just not on my to do list.
Currently feeling not so good about being a natural. My hair reacts VERY negatively to cornrows, pins, hairties, and anything else that attempts to tame it. I refuse to wear a fro everyday all day. Reconsidering growing my hair out any further. Because if I can barely handle it now, then what of 4+ inches more in the future?
*What do you plan to do now africanrelic?* Pretend I am bald and go to sleep.
What I really wanted was a white Maltese and a gray greyhound but right now I’m being offered a black chihuahua/ (not sure what he’s mixed with) so idk. Grey is just such a superb color for a coat though. Sigh. Nonetheless, I’m still stoked. :3
the one who asked me to post more photos of myself. My phone is tripping so I didn’t get to answer your question fully so here goes. I’m actually working towards taming my hair right now because I think it looks kinda bushy when i wear it out like that. Do idk if your request is one that can be fulfilled /:
Nina Simone - Her involvement in civil rights was spurred by an incident at her first classical piano recital at age 12. During the recital, her parents sat in seats in the front of the building to see her play, but were told to move to the back to make way for white guests. She wasn’t having that though. The young girl refused to perform until her parents were moved back to the front. Ahhh, to be young, gifted and black.
Grace Jones - Did you know that model Grace Jones was supposed to be an X-Men character? Not literally, but the character of Dazzler, a mutant able to convert sound vibrations into light and energy beams (what fun is that?) was initially supposed to be a disco singer. This character was to be made in the image of crazy (but cool) Grace Jones, with the bald fade and all by illustrator John Romita, Jr. However, those in charge wanted to promote model Bo Derek instead, and modeled the character after her. How dope would a singing superhero who looked like Grace be? “DO YOU THINK I’M SEXYYYYYY???”
Phylicia Rashad - After years of being Clair Huxtable, a role that garnered her Emmy nominations but no wins, Rashad took her talents to Broadway, where she finally won a much deserved award. In 2004, she was the first black woman to win a Tony Award for a dramatic lead on Broadway as loyal mother Lena Younger in “A Raisin in the Sun.”
Diahann Carroll - Before there were shows like Moesha, Girlfriends, and the likes (with black female leads), there was Julia. Diahann Carroll was the first black woman to be the star of an American television show in 1968 without having to play a maid or any other stereotypical role. Julia was a pretty big deal too, winning her a Golden Globe for best female TV star in 1969.
Maya Angelou - As a friend and coordinator for Martin Luther King Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference, when Dr. King was killed on her birthday (April 4, 1968), she said she found herself unable to celebrate her birthday from then on. As a hero to her, she was very impacted by his death. Therefore, on her birthday, for many years, she instead decided to send flowers to Coretta Scott King every year until her death in 2006.
Condoleezza Rice - If you didn’t know, Condoleezza Rice is pretty awesome. Not only is she a talented and accomplished pianist who backed everyone from Aretha Franklin to Yo-Yo Ma, but on top of that, Rice is an exceptionally intelligent woman as well. She entered college at the age of 15, getting her Bachelor’s cum laude from the University of Denver at the age of 19. And after that success, she went on to be an assistant professor at Stanford by age 26. Yikes! I guess I should step my game up…
Octavia Butler - Science fiction writer Octavia Butler, author of the brilliant book Kindred, the Patternist series (which brought usWild Seed), and many other notable works was diagnosed as being dyslexic as a child. Despite all that, she tried her hand at writing as a young girl, and eventually solidified her love for science fiction as a pre-teen. What a blessing for her to be able to create such amazing works after all that, and despite her alleged disorder, she won numerous awards for her work.
Barbara Jordan - Known as the first black woman to serve on the Texas Senate, and later for being the first black woman from the “Deep South” to serve on the House of Representatives, Barbara Jordan was also a national champion debater. At Texas Southern University, which was all black at the time, in 1954, with Barbara Jordan at the helm, debate team defeated folks at Yale and even tied Harvard University in the battle of words–the latter was said to be one of her proudest moments in college. She later graduated magna cum laude from TSU.
Chaka Khan - Were you a fan of Reading Rainbow back in the day? I bet you 50 cents (that’s all I’ve got) that you probably didn’t know Chaka Khan was one of the lucky performers to sing the popular theme song to the show: “Butterfly in the skyyyyyyyy, I can go twice as hiiiiiiiiiiigh!” Though she wasn’t the first to sing the track, it’s pretty safe to say that she did it the funkiest! Love her, love the show, and I loved her rendition of the song. Chaka love the kids.
oh you have an opinion about my opinion? How nice.
I really like the color yellow.
really? Well I think it's kinda ugly and I don't understand how you can like it it.
Me (on the inside):
Did I ask you!!?? You dumb stupid bitch! Bitch YOU are the ugly one here. So fucking annoying. If I wanted your opinion about MY opinion I would have asked you neanderthal. Damn. Just go the fuck away. It's okay yellow, their opinion doesn't matter anyways.
The entire thing was just one big teaser. Fuck. Nonethess today was good. I guess.
Fucking shit. I fucking hate the shit people do I swear. Fuck. *flips chair over* this is all some fuck shit that I wish I wasn’t sober enough to comprehend right now.
I believe in balance. Nothing more..nothing less. I will not continue to put myself out there to be left hanging. I expect exactly what I give in return. If you cannot provide me with that…Trust me, I will begin to retract. Try me!
