I hate being a last resort. Is that selfish? I’ve isolated myself to avoid these feelings and this is exactly why I prefer to be alone
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.
The shit that makes relationships last.
(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
- The Melting Pot
- Coffee Date
I will do all of these some day
