The Decline of Twitter

31 Mar

I miss the old Twitter.

 

What a broad statement. Twitter is at its a root a micro chat room. So the overall concept is nothing new. But the initial discourse was full of excitement. You always could get on and catch people trading one liners and debating for hours on end about the must mundane things. One things I used to love was the interaction that you could have with anyone across the country about whatever came to mind. It seems that isn’t the case much. Twitter is now overrun with people hoping to cash in on the socialite craze and rappers that will never make it. For the select few that turn it into something profitable more power to you. As for everyone else, I don’t know but incessant tweets from #TEAMFOLLOWBACK are driving me insane and no I am NOT interested in a $5o iphone.

That’s all for now. Ciao

Running Naked With Scissors

Blogging is fun no doubt about it.  And WordPress makes it more fun with all the cool stuff that you can do with your blog.  The possibilities are endless. You can write about whatever you want, be as open or anonymous as you want, change your name, make yourself a super hero, chat with people from countries whose name you can;t pronounce, make friends with amazing people whom you probably never would even have bumped into in a crowded anywhere….endless…

Sobriety

8 Mar

Went to court today and got a year of probation. UGH! which inadvertantly has me stuck learning to be sober. I spent the last couple of months kind of rebuilding and figuring out how to manage being in business for myself. Needless to say things are going to be difficult but I am for a lifestyle change. Having to live sober will get me back on track to being a healthier individual. I think I am pretty ready for the challenge considering all things. Today will be my last day of sin, after all I have several bottles of wine, and a 4Loko lurking around. The smart thing would be to just pour them down the drain but somewhere in my weak mind I would hate to see about $27 dollars worth of booze be thrown away. I thought to give it to someone but I am a tad selfish. To make matters worse there is an unopened bottle of peach vodka still sitting in the freezer. I am really not sure what to do with it considering that I can’t have that down and out of my system in time for my first meeting with my probation officer.

 

I really feel like I am in this alone. The major reason I turned to alcohol was because of how isolated I feel from real life and from the outside world. I haven’t met anyone else like myself to bond with. All my current friendships are based on all the wrong pretensions. That left we with the worst set of circumstances. Namely, no real friends to tell me to stop all my friends that I went out with saw me night after night drinking, and driving home. I had no social barometer to tell me I was bound to get myself in trouble or taking the boozing too far.

eBay Business Basics

6 Mar

So, I listed my first eBay item today. A brand new Juicy Couture watch, I am really excited to see if it will sell. I have the starting bid at $75.00. This is just one of the items I plan on putting up for auction but I needed a lithmus test to see how this whole online marketplace thing actually works. I would love to start selling on eBay in my spare time. The thing is with so many people selling it can be hard getting your products seen. I am hoping htat despite that I will see some interest in my stuff.

I’m Going Through Changes

3 Mar

Ugh, ugh.. Scowering the internet, looking for inspiration. It’s been an interesting week, worked a little and now as I am writing this blog I am waiting on my homegirl to come so we can get some drinks. Yes, at a mexican restaurant but that’s what most single, black mommies do to wind down. LOL, well maybe not all of them. Anyway, besides the regular goings on around here, I am still doing my research for my online business. Flipping electronics was lucractive but a little while but I am having a hard time branching my business plan out to something that doesn’t require as much overhead. It’s my goal to be able to make money but putting in money for a return of at least 120%. So far, I am breaking even or making sporadic larger profits.

 

Beyond work and my other hustles I have been contemplating chopping off my hair. I don’t mean go completely bald but I would like to have a versatile style that will let my poor, little scalp breathe a bit. As of right now, my extensions are cute but they are high maintanence. It’s like dealing with real hiar so instead of having more time to get ready in the morning it seems as if I am taking more time to get ready because of all of the prep involved in my hair now. I mean, it is such an annoyance.

 

I really admire both Monica and Kelis shorter styles. They are versatile enough for everyday wear and make you stand out as well. I also like alot of Keyshia Cole’s cuts when her hair was short as well. I am really conflicted about what it is I want to get done to my hair because I haven’t had my hair cut that short since probably high school. At the time, my hair was both relaxed and color so the cut was accentuated by the color I already had in it. However the style left much to be desired. This time around I really want a unique and grown up look. After all, I am 23, wearing pig tails and carrying on like I am a child just isn’t cute.
