Big Up to Netflix.
I just finished watching The Incredible Jessica James and I think I need to watch that shit again! How can you not love a woman who speaks her mind, on a first tender date, letting this man know he’s getting no sex. Classic. Such a self assured blk woman, but is she really so self assured?
I love that we got to see into her “family” life, when she returns home for her sister’s baby shower. Even I felt as if she didn’t belong there, or she too would get “sucked” into that complacent lifestyle. Kudos to her for getting out! I love that we are able to see Jessica And Boone go thru their break up (to other people) but still try to figure out wtf they are doing with to and with one another. An unlikely pairing, blossoms, awkwardly at times, into something that could be more for both. I throughly enjoyed the interaction between Jessica and Boone. I’m a bit sadden that it was a movie, and now I’m stuck creating a part two in my head.
The Incredible Jessica James is currently showing on Netflix. If you do have it, get the password from a friend!
I had to have a conversation with myself last night. I was being a bit thirsty, and it was coming off as desperation when I looked at my words/actions. As much as you don’t want to be single, don’t force it. Things should have a nice flow to it, and if you find yourself trying to create a vibe, instead of letting a vibe grow organically, you might be coming off as thirsty too.
As much as I want to be done with this dating nonsense, I can’t fake chemistry where there is none. I remember dating this one guy that was amazing! Super supportive, kind, genuinely liked me, but for me there was no spark! I thought he was dope as hell, but I didn’t feel anything. Dating him was out of the box for me, he was nothing that I would go for but my dating preferences can’t be trusted. How effed up would I have been if I continue to date this amazing man who I had no interest in?
Ultimately you have to stay true to yourself and sometimes even check yourself!
I Always come back to “Brown Sugar” featuring Sanaa Lathan and Taye Diggs. It’s just that feel great movie, that will forever remain a classic synonymous with black love.
The perfect line I’ve ever heard was “You are a perfect verse over a tight beat” Oh shit! I definitely didn’t appreciate that when I first fell in love with this film. I hadn’t experienced life in a way, that causes you to appreciate it. Do you know how many rappers, no artists, create a career attempting to find the perfect beat, to go with the perfect verse? Forever man! Honestly That’s the sweetest line a man could ever use, especially when he sincerely means it.
Here’s to finding your classic verse over a dope beat.
Laughed. Cried. Then Laughed again.
Kudos to author Tia Williams, this book has captured my heart! Being as single as I am, this book just reaffirmed the sappy romantic side of me. I’m still reeling from the ending of the book. I feel, a part of me feels excited that I got to meet these two amazing people, Jenna and Eric.
I was able to have a front row seat to not only their love but their flaws, their emotions and their weaknesses. Obviously I’m the reader but I enjoyed the transparency of the characters. I am Jenna, and Eric at the same time. I am Darcy and Brian and Jinx. I’m human. The Emotions I’m experiencing during this weird time of singleton (real word?) are valid!
I’m learning to embrace what I feel as I feel it. Embrace it, learn from it then move the eff on. I recently felt myself getting so frustrated with “love” that I started pushing all notions of love and dating to the depths of my soul, locked away. This book has made me realize there is a perfect find, and sometimes, most times, you don’t have to do a thang to experience it, besides being you.
Patience will Attract everything you’re looking for.
Even though I am a Baltimore Chick through and through, I Love Wale!! I know I know, he’s from DC and this is a forbidden love, but I can’t help it. There’s something about him musically that I can not get enough of. It’s like he knows everything about me so he writes songs that speaks directly to me. There hasn’t been an album released by my boo Wale that I didn’t love and rock until I couldn’t listen anymore.
I’m currently obsessing over his latest release, SHINE. I believe this is his best work to date. However I always feel like he continuously pushes himself, with each album release. I love that he has incorporated more of the sounds from his country, although he does have more features this time around. I honestly couldn’t pick my top three but I forced myself to do so.
Top Three: My Love, Fashion Week and My PYT … honorable mention CC White.
SideNote: Wale’s Summer on Sunset (Mixtape) is Fire. It’s unfortunate that I haven’t been able to put the album on my phone and Spotify is not up on game. If you get the chance to listen to the album, Please listen to Day by the pool, its ridiculously sick!
This weekend I was a bit blue.
So Girls’ Trip, the movie, came out, and I wasn’t included in any of my group of friends conversation of attending. I know I am a bit of a solo dolo chick, who surely will pass on a group trip, but I love the movies! I was in my feelings of not being asked to attend, I’ve since got over that feeling but I realized that folks just want to be included in the plans that are being created. I wasn’t invited for whatever reason but I just chalk it up to people knowing I’m a dedicated workaholic.
However I do need to shout out, no #IGMOSHE, out of the friends that I do have he was the only person who invited me out to go see the movie, even though he definitely has no interest in it.
For me to be so single, I sure picked a romantic movie to watch!
So November Rule, directed by Mike Elliott, is a black indie film, that I loved! (FYI I’m not sure why Tyga is in the poster for the movie, he was featured for half a second!) Don’t let that discourage you! Sneaker heads will enjoy for the multiple rare shoe sightings!
To sum up the movie, boy meets girl, boy likes girl, but breaks up with said girl as to not have to partake in any holiday events. Girl moves on with new boy but new boy is just as douchey as old boy. Old boy realizes he wants girl but girl no longer wants him.
You’ll love it, I promise. Just go watch the film! It’s definitely Netflix & Chill worthy.
SideNote: LaLa does a really good job in this movie, as well as Jay Ellis, however he came off moreso bipolar than asshole.
