Hi All! Updates on my life…….

12 Aug

First thing first, last I was here I told you about my interview that I thought I nailed. HAHA, foolish me! I apparently did nail the interview, but the manager already had someone else in mind.  :^/ 

So she wants to keep my info on file and keep me in mind for the Freelance Artist opportunity, if one ever comes available. Now don’t get it twisted that I took it well when I finally talked to her. I kept my calm while on the phone with her, but when I hung up, I let it rip! I was really looking forward to this panning out for so many different reasons. But I guess it’s not my time. It’s funny really, I’ve stop trying in my makeup applications, I’ve stop with all my efforts. I don’t have the motivation to even begin anymore. Maybe it’ll come back or I’ll push myself to get there and start over. Have to take a step back and start over. UGH!

Any whoo, I’m still job hunting. Oh what joy that is. The constant seeking of employment is beyond my frivolous understanding of how the world should work. But  I’ll keep going on it because I need funds. This is the first time I’ve been out of a job this long. I pray that I don’t get to 12 months. But that’s enough of that.



Sunrise in the Bahamas

27 Apr

Sunrise in the Bahamas

August of 2012 I was fortunate to go to a place many in my family had never been. The BAHAMAS!!! I had never been so excited in my life to have been able to travel to such a place. That was my first flight, and my first time out of the country. Even now that seems so foreign to me. When we arrived and was able to look out the window throw the plane it was like a isolated paradise waiting for us to explore. I was perfectly happy with my stretch of sand and sun right off our resort room. I had every intention to go and do nothing. My boyfriend at the time had different intentions I found out later. But all in all we enjoyed the quiet time. listening to the sound of the ocean, enjoying to culture around us and feeling blessed. A place I wouldn’t mind traveling to again. For sure!!!

Just Because….. (A moment of reflection)

26 Apr



I wrote then other day about how by the grace of God, McGreggor is up and running. So in light of the fact I have now am able to upload my pictures from my camera and phone. I am now even able to type out complete thoughts and poetic ideas. Though it’s been some time since I’ve done either one of those things. But this could be the beginning of a Beautiful Relationship!!!! 

Upon uploading my pics from my camera I reviewed pictures I took from one of my vacations I was so fortunate to take to the Bahamas in August of 2012.  While reviewing I began thinking of a recent conversation I had with a long time friend. We meet up a couple of days ago so that I could get some makeup samples for a photo shoot I was supposed to do this weekend (that got canceled).

But anyway, we got on the subject of my ex boyfriend. I won’t state his name out of respect for his privacy, however, I will say that he and I have known each other for over 13 years and tried to make a go of something special. In the midst of the special time we had in our relationship it was compounded by the fact that we were long distance from each other.

Now to all my subbies out there, in this great age of technology, you would think that long distance isn’t the end of a well working relationship. We kept in touch through skype on the weekends, emails, and occasional face to face chats. We did our part, we worked at it. Occasional arguments, disagreements where bound to happen, but we pulled through it. 10 years of friendship had gotten us through some tough times before, so that should be no different. Boy, was I wrong!!!

Having a Job should be considered a blessing and a highlight. His however great it is was one of the worst that maybe out there. He worked nonstop it felt like. We may actually hear each other’s voice for about 4 hours a week, and that was if we were on a good note. 

But even after all that we endured through the relationship, I find myself thinking over all  the fun we had. Over the year and a half of us dating we took 4 vacations. His was usually 6 weeks long due to all the overtime accumulated. When he was home, he would split his time between his family, best friends, and myself, but he would make sure he made time for me.

Thinking back on things after the fact, they don’t seem as demanding and difficult as I once thought they were. And even now knowing all the facts (somethings you gotta keep to yourself), I find myself being a better person having gone through that experience.

We speak everyday now, which is much more than we did while dating. Lol. Going over the  pics from our next to last vacation reminded me of some of the best times in my life. Being treated like the Queen you are by a wonderful man, enjoying the treasures that life has to offer, and just knowing that even in the event that you separate they will always be there for you. You know, if couldn’t be a better way to end things.
