“I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.”
― Jack Kerouac

I love when people say I’m acting black. They usually tell me this when I’m loud or say something dumb or something gramatically incorrect. I might add I am mixed 50 percent black and 50 percent white. You know what that means??? I am black all the time!!! So when I got my master degree, when I go to my full time job, when I go to my home at the end of the day, I am still black as much as I am white. Sorry I am a damn good smart educated sexy black and white woman. I am sorry I don’t live up to your ideals of a black person. But maybe it’s you that needs to change. I get it. I’m a mixed girl from the suburbs with a middle class family. But I am still half black. My dad is African. He’s a different black right? We are still black!!! I understand I will never know what it is to be an impoverished black woman but I am still black and I still have value. K thank you, buh bye now.

Finally feeling myself today. Did a workout. Some bible time and journaling over lunch. Hopefully seeing my parents this evening :) the sun even showed today!

The shit that makes relationships last.
Date night in a jar
(Could be altered to be best friend dates in a jar)
I used big popsicle sticks and spray painted them different colors. Each color represents a different type of date (and each color is explained on the tag) and the white sticks were used as fillers.
Red sticks have more expensive dates on them that require planning on our part.
Bed and Breakfast
Dinner at a fancy restaurant
Hotel stay for the night
Auburn home game and away game
Concert and dinner (his choice)
Concert and dinner (my choice)
Weekend away
Coupes Massage 
Dark pink sticks have “at home” dates:
Chopped Challenge (like the television show on FoodNetwork)
Fondue and Almost Famous
Takeout and board games
1,000 piece puzzle and pizza
Football game and nachos
Popcorn and a chick-flick
Crosswords and breakfast for dinner
Make a dessert together
Friday Night Lights marathon
Homemade pizzas and an Italian movie
 Light Pink dates have things we can do away from home but are less expensive than the red and don’t require as much planning.
Dinner and a movie (my choice and his choice)
Laser tag and go carts
Mexican night at Cocina Superior 
Drive-In date
Dessert only date
Window shopping for the house
Bowling
The Melting Pot
Coffee Date

I will do all of these some day
