Randompalooza Vol. 2

How is it the end of May already? I swear 2011 just started yet it's already summer. Bout fucking time tho. I started a new knitting project - a purple scarf for my sister. I missed knitting. #goodtimes

Speaking of my sister, she's coming to visit! She'll be here in a couple of weeks & I'm really excited about her visit. My sister & I have never done a 1-on-1 visit, whenever she's come to visit me, my mom has tagged along. And my sister is 21 now so I can take her to the bar #yay.

It's finally warm in the Mpls, so this weekend I got to be out & super social. Friday night I hit one of my fave lounge spots in NE Mpls, Honey, with my girl SS. I was there about 10 mins when I looked over & saw my friend JJ, who I used to work with in Orlando; funny running into him up here. We caught up & hung out, which was a lot of fun. Saturday night I hit an old school party, which was just ok. I'm just happy that I can be back in the streets again - it was a longass winter & I was tired of being cooped up in the house.

My new fave show is Game of Thrones on HBO. Its based in a fantasy world that's kind of similar to The Lord of the Rings...but much darker. Very entertaining. The show is based on a book which I hear is really good, so I need to pick that up.

I also need to pick up that new biography of Malcolm X.

Still not dating. I do miss going on dates, especially with the attorney. But it's for the best. I'm not coming off the bench until I meet a guy who is really worth it and I dont see that happening anytime soon.

I'm convinced that some bloggers post the most outrageous stuff just for hits. I hate that - stand behind what you write, and don't put fuck shit out into the universe just in the name of blog traffic. Some of yall need more integrity. But the blogging game is a popularity contest, so I'm sure yall will just continue to post bullshit & get praise for it.

I have a new Twitter crush.

I decided that I'm going to Florida for my birthday - I should probably work on booking my flight.

I wish LK was joining me for my birthday :sad: We haven't seen each other in over 2 years, and we havent done a birthday trip together since 2009.

I went to have sushi by myself Sunday evening, and I realized that I'm tired of always doing things alone. *sigh* It would be nice to have more company. Someone to do things with.

This weekend I'll be in Chicago for my good friend's wedding. I can't wait, I haven't been to Chicago in a very long time.

I've only been back for a little over a year, and already I see that the social scene in Mpls is too small - everybody knows everybody else. And folks talk too damn much. What happened to minding your biz?

I have officially given up on all the Real Housewives franchises, and shows like it. I can't take the manufactured drama, the fakeness, the negativity and the delusions of grandeur. Why do these women even sign up for this stuff - is fame (or infamy) really that important?

I still need a new gig. Remember how I had those couple of interviews? My intuition told me that I didn't want that job, and so I pulled myself out of the process. But I need to get back to the hunt, I need a change. As Maryann Reid would say, I need to create a vacuum.

I took a Law of Attraction class a few weeks ago & I learned so much. Been trying to really incorporate the things I learned into my life.

I don't understand how some of yall folks are in relationships.

Another one of my friends is getting divorced :sad: I've noticed that the folks I know who are divorcing or unhappy in their marriages, all got married because they thought it was time to settle down. Marriage is a huge decision, you can't pull the trigger on it just cause everyone else is & you think you have to live by their timeline.

I went down another size. I absolutely have to go shopping because I literally have about 3 pairs of pants to wear to work now, everything else is too big to the point of falling off. Fuck!

Ready to braid my hair up, I've been rocking a twistout faithfully since Jan & I'm tired of it.

Does anybody even read this anymore? Say hi or something so that I know I'm not talking to myself #thanks
