Lil tash is outta here!
Har har har! The funny thing is, he said "You're probably going to blog about this, aren't you?" Anyway.Before he left for Vegas for his stupid game tournament (Evo2009), we were saying our goodbyes and I love yous.Here's how it went: Me: I love you
Him: I love you too.
Me: Really? You really love me? Him: Yes, I really do love you, with all my heart.
Me: Why?Then it became silent. He stutter...Read more
Awhile back, I read an interesting article about how parents repeat statements to their children to instill a false sense of hope, security and a drive to succeed. While well-intended, these idioms are still lies that can end up doing more harm than good. Sometimes, parents tell these lies because they themselves honestly believe in them. As such, I've decided to provide some prime examples of seemingly innocent, seemingly harmless white lies that kids still hear.
"As long as you try your best, that'...Read more
In the recent incident between a White Cop and a Black Professor, the question of race has once again, come to the front. *
There are two versions on this story:
ONE: White Cop shows up to a house where a break-in is suspected and finds a black man in grubby clothes, who becomes belligerent, threatening and uncooperative in response to the White Cop’s request for ID. White Cop repeatedly askes ...Read more
All my life I've been skinny. It's not my fault; I haven't done anything to become this way. I'm an active girl, I have a high metabolism. But I eat a lot and I've never once attempted to lose weight by starving myself or throwing up.Skinny girls have body issues too. I've been accused of being anorexic and bulimic several times. I've been denied the right to hanging out with one of my best friends because I was a "bad influence". Her mom wrongfully assumed I had an eating disorder.It seems l...Read more
I wouldn't think I would have to tell you this, but it seems some people have yet to grasp the concept. In a recent post, someone trolled and I really didn't appreciate it. This person will obviously try to pass me off as mad because he had such killer arguments, and I'm just mad because he disproved me and my friends, but it's not that at all. If you've followed me for any length of time you'll know that I encourage discussion and even if it leads to me being disproved than I'll...Read more
The following will make me sound like an I'm old woman, but it’s been something on my mind that I want to share with anyone and everyone who will listen!
I’m gonna be 21 this month! (whut whut!) but what the mess!? Since when did time start to fly so fast? I know it happened at some point…. but it’s so long ago I can’t remember. Where has the summer gone? The year? Where are the last 5 years?!?! I was just 17, reflecting on my last days of “childhood”. I was just 16, excited to get my license. I was j...Read more
I confess: I love Hello Kitty. And I'm 25.But while I'll cop to enjoying a stuffed animal or two, some people have such hots for HK that they incorporate her into the most sacred event of their lives: their weddings.Let's see how Hello Kitty maniacs have squeezed the cute character into every aspect of their big days.

This morning the reporter mentioned the word "criminal" in conjunction with the cost to the city of Los Angeles for services provided for Michael Jackson's funeral. I didn't watch any of the public spectacle, but I wondered at it. I remember when other famous musicians and celebrities have died, but I don't remember much about their funerals, perhaps because those events were mostly private. I don't recall any government entity having to incur "criminal" costs of their behalf. Was Michael Jack...Read more
I recently joined twitter and then I thought well now what's the point of someone asking me what I'm doing this weekend or what I've been up to because they can just look at my twitter page and find out.
Social networking sites make it so easy to keep in contact with friends and family, even meet new people, but how many of those people would you consider a real friend? I have over 250 friends on facebook. Now I don't add random people or accept friend requests from someone I don't k...Read more
