The Vision Board: 2010 (VLOG)

Okay so I am finally uploading this. Keep in mind this was recorded late June 2010 (maybe early July?!?!) so things have changed a bit since then. More goals have been met, some have been changed (for the better). The video is like 6 minutes long. Sorry. I know most people on the internet have short attention spans and anything over 3 minutes is an issue. But okay...

Kanye West and White People don't mix...

Kanye West is on twitter. Awesome.

I chose not to follow Kanye because half the people I already follow will retweet anything this dude says...no hate, but I don't need to see but so much of Kanye. Plus he has too much confidence. I don't like it. And he might be the devil...so that's an issue too (#vexed). Anywho...Kanye who often time claims to be "original" pulls a Conan O'Brien and follows one person. This person is a kid named "Steven Holmes" and he's from Coventry...ole harry potter type place.
The moment Kanye follows this dude, he is inundated with comments and follows. He started with 68 followers, and is around 6550 now. The comments vary from nice like "Damn dude!" to rude and hateful "why the fuck is Kanye following this ugly ass nukka" (these are ACTUAL comments @ the dude). I am amazed...this is the most entertaining shit I have seen in a while. Kanye is your "god" and you are acting like pissed off angels because he chose a human over you. (How many will get this analogy?!?) So what Kanye chose a random person? Who cares? And what is with this begging and pleading for Kanye to follow you instead because you are cooler?

If you were "cooler" you wouldn't be begging celebs to follow you on twitter...
But I digress...the story gets more interesting. Unlike luckybuttons (O'Brien's chosen one)...Steven is in NO way interested being famous. He does not find this awesome at all. All this attention gets to be so much, he deletes his avy and stops tweeting...but doesn't delete his twitter (which I guess is too much like right...). It sucks for him. But with great "power" comes great problems. Kanye ruined this kid's life.

So the lesson learned...Kanye and white people don't mix. Anytime Kanye does something and a white person is involved...expect a problem. Maybe this is his intent. Maybe he wants to ruin white folks because "George Bush doesn't care about black people" or maybe it's because Taylor Swift won over Beyonce. At any rate...this dude has to deal with ignorant ass people every day because of Kanye West.

That sucks. Kanye West is right "No one man should have that much power!"

Hey Life...What's Good?!?

I changed my blog title. I had to for several reasons:
  • I wanted to .com and I couldn't get www.thebeautifulstruggle.com 
  • Sistertoldja has a blog called "The Beautiful Struggler" and I felt a certain way. Not a negative way...more like a "i don't want to be accused of biting in any way" despite the fact that I made my blog before I knew who she was. But I met her in BK a few weeks ago and she was super nice. And beautiful.
  • I just felt like a change. Plus this is my jam. 
Anywho...so the blog name has changed. The blog layout will change when I find someone who can do what I want. I haven't been looking so I confined to using the templates on here until I do. I don't mind paying for a dope layout but I need to get it together in my mind first.

For those who have asked, I don't know the status of "Generally Speaking" right now. As many of you know, Smif N Wessun is currently in the studio with Pete Rock working on their album for the fall. Also they are some traveling brothers. That feature was never meant to be permanent though. And the General can't even keep up his own blog. Either way, it was dope! And I love him for that.

My vision board is done...and I keep meaning to post it but I am so busy working on those goals. I actually made a video about it...but I need to check it out before I post it. That might take me some time.

And finally I am about to start studying for the GRE since I am planning on taking it in September. I am not worried though. The math should be a breeze, I am a beast in math. The essay is nothing either. I murder written essays. The verbal part...hmmm...but I am not worried one bit. I am becoming a black girl with a Dr PhD.

The summer has been awesome...shout out to my college besties:
