HA!
Boy Oh Boy,
I used to watch The Wayans Brothers show EVERY FRIKKIN day after school, man.
But poor Shawn,... never real cared too much for the guy, lol.

Check out their appearance on the Chelsea Lately Show.

Is this how things go?

As usual, I didn't get any sleep.
Not even an hour.
I've been up for almost 30 hours.
I was so amped up for the day, I COMPLETELY forgot I was tired.
Monday would be the first day of Summer Session I for CUNY and I decided to register for classes. I went to City Tech as soon as it opened,
to only find out, I was still enrolled in Kingsborough and I needed to get the paperwork done before I could start.
I left campus went home to hang out with my "Guy Friend" of 2 1/2 years and it was the worst.
He comes to the house, jokes around with my cousin...
We're all having a sweet ol' time.
After she leaves, ya know, there was a little smooch-smooch, kissy kissy face going on, lol,
But, of course, I'm not trying to take anything anywhere with this guy.
We tried the whole Boyfriend- Girlfriend thing,
It just didn't work.
But ever since he heard about my last run in with my Ex, he's been semi-consistent.
I honestly just don't wanna go there with him.
Have you ever known someone who was almost perfect?
Great looking, good sense of humor, well dressed, the over all people person...
But theres that one thing about them you just cant deal with?



This guy has a MILLION and ONE female friends.
If you look at his page,
its PLASTERED with girls.
Today, when he asked me to be his girlfriend for the thousandth time,
I said to him,
"No girl wants to be in a relationship with a guy who knows more girls than she does".
I mean, call me insecure, but its the truth.
Just the same as no guy wants to be with a girl who's only girl on their MyFAVES are their mom.
Thats the truth.
The second and most important thing is, the sex situation.
I made an oath with myself to wait until I was married.
Regardless the end result,
I refuse to be the girl who has FOURTEEN names to her body.
And my friend of 2 1/2 years has been trying to be number one for all 2 1/2 years.
Its really tiring.



So, anyway, while he was at my house,
We were having a great ol' time watching tv and he starts making kissy face again.
It was all sweet until he started to go hard,...
Going places he doesnt need to go, if ya know what I mean ; 0
Thats when I had to put things in chill mode.
Once I did, the argument concerning why we cant be together came up.
The man just couldnt understand why I didnt wanna be with him.
Maybe its just me, but he didnt realize the only time the boyfriend girlfriend talk came up is when the sex talk came up.
Now, I know for a fact Im no goodie two shoes,
But I just dont wanna go there with anyone.




After leaving my house in a childish tantrum,
He texts me.
Here's the convo:

Him:
"You take me for a fool"
ME:
"If you really wanted to be with me, you wouldnt make me feel a way about us having sex. You should be fine just spending company time with me."



Him:

"I do... but we chill everytime, dat s**ts wack. If it was all about sex I wouldve been stopped talking to you"
(thats what they all say)

ME:
"Do You realize how silly this is?! If hanging out on the couch is wack, then find something else to do. I'm not having sex and if you cant deal, then idk what to say"


Him:

"I dont even wanna have sex with you nemore cause you act like a little girl... I just like you cause you cool.... you so worried about me playing you..."



Yatta, Yatta, Yatta...

Sounds like an ad from the "Just Say No Campaign, doesnt it?" HA!


The point is, he's really sweet,...
Yes, Yes,.. Mommy likes him,
but, the guy wants to have sex.
He's been trying to since the day I met him.
What I cant seem to understand is-
Why does he keep trying after all these years having not got anything?
Is this how things go?
I'm sure with out a doubt he has many girls to choose from.
Why me?
I mean, If its not just sex alone, give me your time.
Show me that your interested in me and not my Noonies.

I just dont get it?!?!

So, the jerk guy I've been talking about,
I completely deleted him from my life.
My life, meaning Facebook, Myspace, blocked the guy from AIM, all that funky stuff.
I'm not exactly sure when or how he figured it out.
I picture him logging on to Facebook...
After checking his updates,
He, types in my name on the search bar, only to realize-
I'M NOT ON HIS FRIENDS LIST!
HA!
But, he called my best friend today.
I'm not exactly sure what it is he has to say or why he's calling her.
It doesn't make any sense.
Its like, every time I try to get away from this guy, he tries to be all involved or just around.
I came to the conclusion,
He's insecure.
I've noticed that a lot of the girls he dates, their all either virgins, or really sweet laid back girls.
Somewhere in the story, something goes wrong and they end up having some sort of a passive-aggressive relationship leaving the girl wanting more from him but maintaining the friendship.
He treats these girls amazingly and then drops them upon some new discovery of female flesh.
But he eventually regains their friendship to keep them hanging by a thread.
Its like, he doesn't really want the girl, but he adores the attention.
He's not really good looking, but he's very charasmatic,
and unfortunately, we allow him to get away with his nonsense.
I dont understand it...
His mom is beautiful, but somewhere along the lines of DNA,
things got screwed up
Its all really sad.




My mom.
She's funny.
She's EXTREMELY sickened by him.
She thinks he may be, nursing a secret that hes unwilling to reveal.
We were watching "The Fashion Show" on Bravo.
Rico Chapple.
My Mom thinks the two have a strong resemblance.

Bored

Bored this summer...




Dane Cook...I Think I Love Him


You might know him as Mitch Burns from "Dan In Real Life"...

Or Tank Turner for "My Best Friends Girl".

You probably dont even know who the HECK he is and care very little.

But, Dane Cook is my new guy.

Yepp.

No, but seriously, this guy is hilarious.

At first, I thought this guy was frikkin wack.

Like, I forced myself to laugh the first time I saw him,

But, seriously, watch this video... you'll understand.
If not,...
GOD BLESS YOU,...lol
(Not like, God bless you hahaha, but like, God bless you, good luck getting through life with out a sense of humor..HA!)

Scented Toilet Tissue?

Can anyone tell me what scented toilet tissue is?
What the heck is scented toilet tissue?
I mean, If your bum smells like cat turd, the simple solution is to take a shower.
Soap included.
Seriously, though... "Fresh Linen Scented Toilet Tissue?"
Whats the purpose?
Make It Lady from the UK states:

"I just bought some toilet paper that was on offer. When I got
it home I discovered it was scented. The scent was fresh linen! Firstly, why
would anyone want scented toilet paper and secondly, who would wipe their nether
regions on fresh linen. I wouldn't want this person stopping in my guest
bedroom."




Just use Cottonelle Kleenex Toilet Tissue...
I promise.
It works.
It cleans.
Otherwise, take a shower.


Strangers With A Vengeance

Once again,
I've pulled an all nighter.
Believe it or not, I'm still stunned by the events of Saturday night.
(Read "So... What's the story" and "Oh, That's What It Means" for clarification)
I'm in so much shock, I've forced myself to avoid the entire thought process.
I caught myself talking sheer nonsense, rather than speaking solid thoughts, all in an attempt to just forget.
This past week, I've been bombarded by amazingly attractive guys and for this reason,
I just don't wanna be bothered by them.
The phone calls, BBM's, IM's, and numerous texts have all been ignored.
I'm just afraid of repeating history.
So,...
Today was the Dance Africa Festival.
I saw so many beautiful people.
From the AfroPunks to the Afrocentric.
It was a sight to see.
When we arrived to BAM, we met up with Alumni from my old high school.
Hung out with them for a while.
Saw one of my old co-workers who I have a major crush on.
THAT made my day.
Aside from the sun beaming on the back of my neck
causing what now feels like O.D. sun damage,
everything was perfect.
Up until I saw the jerks brother.
All of a sudden, I got a MAJOR headache.
I was afraid I'd see him and not know what to do.
Although, I pictured myself pouring the half full Iced Tea I was clutching on his crisp white deep V-neck T-Shirt.
By then, I knew it was time for me to leave.
Its sad how one person could have such a strong effect on what you do and how you feel.
You and that person can seem eternally inseparable,
and then, without knowing,
the two of you are strangers with a vengeance.
"Tell me who I have to be to get some reciprocity?"
"Is this just a silly game that forces you to act this
way?"
"I keep letting you back in. How can I explain myself? As
painfull as this thing has been, I just cant be with no one else. See I know
what we have to do. You let go and I'll let go too. See no one's hurt me more
than you. And no one ever will."

SoHo Room

After realizing that we had no chance of getting to whatever SoHo party we intended on, our next best shot was FOOD.
My best friend Amanda along with my cousin Merisa, and I toured SoHo in search of food.
We wound up walking in a complete circle until we came upon

SoHo Room

Every other Thursday, I'd pass from work
seeing maybe 20-25 people dining seemingly enjoying themselves and I always wanted to go in.
Finally, we came upon the restaurant and decided to try it out.
The food.
Not so good.
The service.
Expeditious.
The ambience was awesome.
I probably wouldnt suggest a late dinner,
but, its definitely a good location for an early lunch or quick lounging after work.
Make sure your pockets are filled.
You can hardly get an appetizer for under 10 bucks.




Merisa had a blast. So much,... she paid the $75 bill.





Amanda, not soo much,...lol


So, the night ended. 3am.

Try it at your own risk: 203 Spring St New York, NY 10012

Kid Cudi!...
Ha!
He's a strange guy, man.
A few weeks ago, my cousin and I watched his "Day and Night" performance on MTV Spring Bling.
For whatever reason, I cant help but laugh hysterically when I see it...

"Yeah, ye- ye- ye, Now put yo hands up! Now put yo hands up? Just
keep em up?!"

Its the most awkwardly hilarious performance EVER.
But for some strange reason, I think this guy is awesome.
But thats all beside the point.
He has this youtube video.
Kid Cudi.
Vashti.

Chocolate Rain.

Thats all I'm
saying.
Watch!!

Rihanna, Rihanna, Rihanna...


So, yes.
Everyone knows the stories...
Chris Brown- Rihanna, and the Two Hot Lashes,...
The Sex Scandal,...
All that nonsense.
But I must say, although Rihanna isnt my favorite person in the world, She dresses fanastically amazing.
When I finally make it to the top,
I just may have to steal her personal stylist.


Exhibit A.




Exhibit B.



Exhibit C.

Book Of The Day... The Richest Man In Babylon


Now, Ive read TONS of books.
From Urban Enlightenment, to How To books.
But never have I read a book that looks depressingly boring on the cover become so intriguing.
A little while ago, I read "The Richest Man in Babylon" by George S. Clason


If you ever feel you've reached the level of maturity to attain and maintain financial success... Read.This.Book.

According to Wikipedia (my favorite!),
"The Richest Man in Babylon is a book by George Samuel Clason which dispenses financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. Through their experiences in business and managing household finance, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom. By basing these parables in ancient times, but involving situations that modern people can understand and identify with, the author presents these lessons as timeless wisdom that is as relevant today as it was back then"


Read it. Retain it. Make that money, man.

Oh... THATS What It Means, huh?



Its 6am people!
I haven't slept.
I've been up all night with my best friend and my cousin reviewing the events of the day, and what a day it had been.
Today was one of those days where you come to terms.
Come to terms with the direction life is headed,
and the decisions made within that time span.
I had always been the "Good Girl".
The only girl in elementary school who talked about the bible,...
The only girl in junior high who didn't have a boyfriend,...
The only girl in high school who hadn't even kissed a boy.
I grew up in a very religious family with high standards and I had my mind made up that I wasn't going to change that for anyone.
Whether my choice made me strange or not, that's what I believe was the truth and I lived by that.
It wasn't until I graduated high school that things changed.
Elementary school, High School...
those were all things you had no choice to do.
5th grade, then 6th grade.
7th grade, then 8th grade.
It had all been automatic.
But college.
That was MY choice.
Work, that was MY choice,
and no one could dictate or force me to do anything.
Unfortunately, I wasn't ready for it.
Within the year of my High School graduation,
I made choices and decisions I never thought I would.
The parties, drinking, walking in the house at 8am hung over,
none of that was me.
But, it wasn't until today that I realized myself and the direction I'm headed.
My first real relationship failed,
My relationships with my family had been all over the place,
School lost its priority in my life.
I wasn't really doing much.
Didn't really have much of a plan.
It wasn't until today.
I figured it all out.
It takes the worst and most painful things to help you understand that whats bad for you is all it is. Bad for you.
Some people, like my older sister learn by example.
Well, I learn by experience.
It took someone I cared deeply about hurting me to understand that I need to figure out my life.
I spent, literally the past 6 months indecisive and unsure about where my life was headed all because I changed my focus.
But today, the person who tried to hurt me, really did me a great favor.
Although, I have a big feeling they'll take credit for this in the future claiming this was all in their plan to get me to this realization, I am appreciative.


Oh, and, side spazz...

--I just want you to know something, man...
I'm a really good person.
You know it.
I know it,
And everyone is aware of it.
The situations you've run into and I made myself available for you,
I remember.
Your lack of remorse.
Its noted.
The funny thing is,
I think about the things you've done and wonder (considering theres Karma and all),
what your life will become.
I pictured when you turned the corner with the passenger door unshut tonight, you crashed.
Luckily, that didnt happen.
But, I truly believe theres a possibility you just might be successful.
Cars, trophy wife, the works.
But you have to meet your maker.
Yes.
That day will come.
And regardless of how you'll be penalized,
Whether its here on Earth,
or on judgment day,
you will receive your just dessert.
The saddest part of me saying this...
You'll ignore the message, and just take pride in the acknowledgement.

Soo... Whats the Story?



So, I am awake.
And for some reason, I have this ultra sobby- big baby kinda feeling today.
I went on facebook...
checked my messages...
Saw some things I really didnt wanna see.
Then, I logged on to projectplaylist.com to listen to some music.
By the time i did that, It was the end for me.
I ran into John Legend.

One of my favorite singers.
Since I was a kid, music had always been my way of remembering.
Whether it was a party, or a rainy day at home in upstate NY,

there was always music in the moment.
So, while I played John Legend and tried to find something for me and my best Friend to do online, I remembered things that I just didn't wanna remember.
John Legends, "Another Again" was the theme of my summer of 08'.
What I like to call "The Summer of Unrequited Love".
Although, I must say, it was truly THE BEST ,
and at the same time, the most pivotal summer of my life.

I fell in love.

But, the love was only temporal.
And exactly Like Another Again,
There had been so much back and forth, and there still is too this day.
In order to save the identities of the parties involved,
I'll use nicknames and songs lyrics to explain the situation.

First.





Adele- "Daydreamer"
"A jaw dropper.
Looks good when he walks,
Is the subject of their talk.
He would be hard to chase, but good to catch
And he could change the world with his hands behind his back oh.
You can find him sitting on your doorstep....
Waiting for the surprise.
And he will feel like he's been there for hours.
And you can tell that he'll be there for life.
Daydreamer with eyes that make you melt.
He lends his coat for shelter,
Plus, he's there for you when he shouldn't be
but he stays all the same,
Waits for you then sees you through.
There's no way I could describe him.
But I'll say he's just what I'm hoping for"



I can honestly say, I was on cloud 9.
It was weird.
He wasn't your typical hot guy.
He wasn't exactly Tall, Dark and Handsome.
More like Tall, Dark, and Funny Looking.
But, for some reason, everyone loved him.
He was charismatic, and a jerk.
Who wouldn't love a guy like that, eh?
But seriously, the guy guy was cool,
I just never EVER saw myself with him.
I usually go for the Eric Benet, Jay Hernandez, David Beckham kinda guys.
He didn't exactly fit into any of those categories.
Either way, I just knew I was happy happy happy
and no one could take that away at the moment, that is.
Late July- Mid September 08'




Brandy- "Its Not Worth It"

"You came into my life
And it's so funny how you made everything right
And now you're saying to me something ain't right.
What did I do? Did I hurt you?
Baby can you tell me how to dry your eyes
But let me say I never meant to make you cry
If anything I meant to be right by your side
How did I go wrong? When my love was strong
And all I ever wanted was you
If I can ease the pain, whatever it takes to that is what I'll do
Why do you feel this way
Baby you don't have to 'Cause I am here for you
Don't tell me you want out of this
Don't say it's time for us to quit
Don't say goodbye, this can't be it 'Cause it's not worth it
You mean the world to mev
And all I do is try to give you all of me.
I never do anything that wouldn't be pleasing to you
I never knew that you were hurting
And I'll take the blame for anything that I've done that has caused you pain
I never meant to hurt you in any way
So this day, I wanna say
Baby please forgive me"

There was a point in time, I'd speak to this guy.

To me, things were fine.

To him, there'd be some exhaustingly dramatically deep reason as to why he couldnt be with me, but I was determined to make things work with us.

Whatever it was that I could do to xhange the way he felt, I tried to be that for him.

I was super supportive, understood when he'd run into comploex situations. I even prayed for him whenever things seemed to overhwelm him.

I genuinely had the best interest for him.







Amerie- "When I Think of You"




"I cant stop thinkin about what we once had together
I kno the reason is that our love was meant forever
But now my life is shared with someone other than you
But life is worthless if right beside me there is no you
Everday. Alone. I think of you. Your not my man
Im with somebody else. All i want to kno is can i be with you tonight
I've never stopped lovin your kissin and huggin.
I still think of us when im all alone.
Its hard for me to forget wishin your the one that im with
Now im so full of regrets
What do i do when i think of you
Do you remember the day when you first said i love you
I can remember cause through me all my dreams had come true
Now i dont kno why Im with him when love just aint true
But now i do know why im always wishing that it was you"



Things were a little shaky with us.
I met someone else.
And even though I was with this amazing gentleman,
I still thought about this other guy.
Unfortunately, he had his reason,...
there were soo many reasons,...
We just couldn't be together.
Eventually, we reunited and I dropped the poor gentleman (which i still regret doing).

October- November 08'







Music Soulchild- "Half Crazy".


"I never thought that we could ever be more than friends.
But now, I'm all confused, cause for you,
I have deeper feelings.
We both thought it was cool to cross the lines.
And I was convinced it would be alright.
Now things are strange.
Nothings the same.
And really, I just want my friend back."
The whole situation got so confusing.
I was getting mixed signals, ya know.
I mean, okay, it was my first real relationship.
The first guy to hang around my family.
Know my mom, my sister, and all my favorite people.
My first real date.
First real everything.
So, I wasnt sure about anything.
All i knew was that, I was giving my all
and I felt this guy was reciprocating his feelings.

December 08







"No sir, well I don't wanna be the blame, not anymore.
It's your turn, so take a seat we're settling the final score.
And why do we like to hurt so much?
I can't decide.
You have made it harder just to go on
And why, all the possibilities where I was wrong
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.
I drowned out all my sense with the sound of its beating.
And that's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.
I wonder,
How am I supposed to feel when you're not here.
'Cause I burned every bridge I ever built when you were here.
I still try,
Holding onto silly things,
I never learn.
Oh why,
All the possibilities I'm sure you've heard.
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.
I drowned out all my sense with the sound of its beating (beating)
And that's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.
Pain make your way to me, to me.
And I'll always be just so inviting.
If I ever start to think straight,
This heart will start a riot in me,
Let's start, start, hey!"


Clearly. Things didnt work out.
For about two months,
I was like, a frikkin woman scorned, lol
I mean, it hurt pretty badly.
Before, I was the kind of person who,...
"Oh, showing up late, huh?... you thought that was funny? No,.. thats not nice, man... go ahead and delete my number"
Thats how I was.
While I was with this loser guy, I was all like
"Oh, you called me some other girls name? Darnit, thats so mean. I forgive you"
It was a really sucky situation.
Now, I'm all Emo and stuff.
Its a sight to see.
But I'm almost over it, ya know...
Atleast, I'd like to think I am.

Brief Service Announcement...


Okay, so, there probably isnt any human being on Earth who doesnt listen to music.
Although, for some strange reason,
I cant help but be concerned for all the 106 and Park watching,
Power 105 listening people who call theselves music fans.
Yes.
There are tons of different genres of music.
No.
You dont have to listen to the same types of music all bloody day long.
So, Ive decided I'll show you guys real music.
Give you guys a taste of something new.



First,... for the R&B lovers, here is Teedra Moses.

She's been in the music business for quite some time.

Not only is she a great singer, but also songwriter.

She's written for plenty artists, including Christina Milians One and Only hit,

"Dip It Low". Considering that, she deserves some credit.

So, your probably sitting somewhere,
bored as heck reading my blog and wondering,
"Why in the name of Babushka did this girl name her blog Sophomoric Supidity?"
Well, as you read the definition of these words,
between the months of July and May (presently speaking),
I had been the EXACT definition.
Whether it be my fight through unrequited love,
OR
My academic abodonment due to the pursuit of musical happiness,
I had been Sophomoric and Stupid.
All at the same time.
In the event of my stupidity, i decided i'd share my humorously unfortunate life with anyone who was bored enough to read.
So you know what you can do?
Read!
Read on, man, READ!

The. Beginning.

Good Morning America!
For a formal introduction, my name is Nina.
I love chocolate.
I am a songwriter.
It is now 1:08 am.
While listening to Paramore,
I figured I'd write a blog.
The reason I decided to write one is because,...
Well, everybody's doing it!
My best friend Mannie has a frikkin awesome blog (http://funkyfuckethfuckery.blogspot.com/) exposing every bit of her cognitive imagination.
I also have a friend I've reunited with... Brandon, who also has a superlative blog (http://abstrakts.blogspot.com/) that tells great words of sarcastic sensibility as well as logical humor.
The point is, i love there blogs, I have a lot to say, and I wanna write about it!
Now that i've introduced myself,...
I will write.
