I'm An Extremist

I Over-exaggerate, over-react, over-everything
because I'm an extremist.

Moderation has never been my thing.
That whole less is more gimmick? never got it...

In fact, if i didn't know any better I'd put on so much makeup that i looked like a drag queen
because..... I'm an extremist.

I never learned the beauty of quiet power, silent strength.

I'd probably tap dance to get your attention rather than say something witty or cunning because....
you guessed it, I'm an extremist.

Maybe it's because i was "invisible" for so many years or the fact that I'm trying to over-compensate for my compact size.

Actually i'm much more likely to want to go bungee jumping or cliff diving than ride a motorcycle. You know why? Because I'm an effing extremist.

My Philosophy? All or None
If you can't finish don't start.
If you won't do it well, don't do it at all.

In fact if i was trying to kill off people i'd be more likely to use weapons of mass destruction than lethal gas.

I'm sure you know why.

Thank you! You may now return to your regular programming.


"Having ADHD feels natural to me - seeing as I have always been this way. What I can say - now that I am aware that I have it - is that the diagnosis has given me an awareness how much it has impacted my life. I do get disgusted with myself because of my procrastination, yet the disgust has not propelled me into attempting to change my ways.

I guess the most overwhelming feeling related to ADHD is that of knowing about my lost potential - that I will likely never reach my potential. Hopefully I can settle for being a good (though perceived as scatterbrained by my family) person." - At Heart

I'm pretty sure the fact that i'm even attending college is self-deprecating because it not only facilitates but perpetuates the false labeling. I'm sure you've heard them lazy, withdrawn, slow, etc..

The Beautiful People...

Okay, so I have this awkward thing for those Afro-Mexicans. Maybe it's my inner Belizean but....

This song seemed appropriate.

WHERE THEY DO THAT AT?: Female Sexuality Edition

Why is it that when you tell someone your still a virgin and your over the age of 15 people look at you like you have the fucking plague, then they proceed to give you the sideways glare like that cashier who cuts your card in half at the store. They're all like the V-card? Nah, we don't take that here we only take American Express! something has to be wrong with you and if you sold your body on the corner, only then would you be accepted by them cause only then would you be on their level.


Second Scenario:
Any sexually liberated girl, that takes precaution but still gets it in--Beautiful mind, successful, but she likes to twerk it, explores herself while exploring someone else is all of a sudden a #BitschSlutHoSlideJumpoffSkeetProstitute, #Can'tTakeHerHomeToMomz, #GetInMyBackSeatBeforeIEvenBuyYouAMochaLatte!

Example: Stacey Cruzado (You may have seen her with Kid Cudi)
You know she's real because she uses her real name! You can search her on Facebook!

She studies art at the University of Toledo.
She obviously has major ambition, and brains. (Check her blog)
Is she a ho because she decided to pose for Playboy?

No No No, Where They Do That At?

Edit: I don't judge actions, I Judge motives behind the actions
Let's say the girl's doing it to boost her self esteem. Wouldn't condone that.
Let's say she's reacting to a traumatic experience like sexual abuse or rape. Wouldn't condone it but i'd respect it.
Let's say she's not having sex but she's just free spirited. Maybe likes to show off her body. That's her prerogative!

What do you think of this video? I totally understand what he's saying but is that really just "how it is" or is it men and women conforming to the pressures of society?

Coffee is the color of your skin

You can't really complain about black representation in the modeling world (or maybe you can but just humor me).
Check out these bad bitches!

Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn, and Arlenis Sosa
backstage at Jean-Paul Gaultier

sidenote:Every model had a fake tattoo of their name on their chest.
I kind of want one now, tell me that's not hot?

This is the beautiful Sessilee Lopez Again

I have a serious girlcrush on this woman. You might've caught her in Kanye's "flashing lights" video (the first version, i think) and she was rumored to have dated him for a bit. Damn Kanye, you sure know how to pickem!

More Models =)

Psst, does anyone know this one's name?

Chanel Iman, her makeup is beautiful!

Alek Wek

Naomi's loony but i'm diggin' the hair!

Roshumba Williams

Don't You Just Love A Man With Tattoos?....yum

Tattoo fetishes and scar fetishes are different sides of the same coin.
But what is it about inked up or scarred men? Maybe it's the fact that they possibly have a story to tell or a cross to bear. or is it every girl's secret yearning for the bad boy? Is it our admiration of their use of the male body, preferably toned, as a canvas? Do we enjoy delving in the self expression of others?

Let's be honest half of you just think men with tattoos are easy to g-mac on.
I know the deal you ask the meaning of one of their more interesting inked emblems then you precede to gush about a supposedly similar interest and badabaaammm. Sly Mo-fos!

Well anyway these are some of my favorite tatted men ;)

Trey Songz in Urban Ink ;b... (that was my attempt at making a drooling smiley)

Travis Barker

The Beautiful, Justin Timberlake

Travis McCoy (please take Katy Perry away from Russel Brand!)

The Infamous John Mayer

Johnny Depp

Colin Farrell

Wiz Khalifa

Who are your favorite tattooed men?

Celebrity Spotlight: Ciara

In case you guys didn't know, I love artists who are hungry in the way that they pursue their craft. It's like they will do anything and everything to get ahead. ('Cause i feel the exact same way!)
Well anyway, Ciara seems to be back and better than ever with her new track "Basic Instinct (U Got Me)" I love her swag, and her style! Sexy/street without trying too hard? yess, it seems like the industry is becoming some kind of contest of who can be the most unique and eccentric which is a bit hard to digest at times. Thanks for being refreshing CeeCee!

P.S. The game is getting cut-throat. Artists are coming after eachother (Mia & Grace Jones vs. Lady Gaga, Ciara vs. Keri Hilson, Spectacular vs. Every Male R&B artist) Also, Why do R&B artists seem to feel the need to gain street credibility by rapping and putting out mixtapes? Somebody hip me to what's going on with modern music. I'm so confused.

Kay Mescudi talks music ;)

I'm beginning to realize i only mention Hip Hop in my blog but i'm not that one dimensional it's just the culture i relate to most. Really, I listen to a lot of different types of music depending on my mood. (My Pandora Widget is on the side.)

Let's explore, so there's Ella Fitzgerald which is the best to do normal every day homework, while John Williams' Memoirs of A Geisha Soundtrack is best for creative homework.

Alanis, Sia, and a lot of that bluesy-gospel sounding Gavin Degraw type stuff is best for that down and out type mood & anything acoustic is just sex-appeal to my ears.

Lykke Li, Regina Spektor, Amy Winehouse kind of music is just my everyday.

But then there are other artists like Paramore, CocoRosie and Alaine. I'm all over the damn place.

I have no idea where Hip Hop fits in to this but i'm just gonna tell you some of my favorite artists, not that i'm an expert or something.

My favorite rapper is Kanye West. He's conceited but he def has a reason! All his songs are beauty on a platter, that man can never go wrong. Oh, and have you read his blog? Few things inspire the craaaap out of me, but this is one of them. [This along with a healthy serving of Nylon Magazine, fashion shows, deviant art, and def poetry but we'll save that for a later blog.] This man's so well-rounded. LOOOVVEEEE.
Favorite Songs: I Wonder, Addiction, Big Brother, Crack Music...the list goes on

Next on my list is Wale. He talks conquers every subject i mentally wrestle with in such an eloquent way, and doesn't pick sides. He raps about negative aspects of Hip Hop culture and African American Culture as well as the parts he loves, like the fashion! The only thing about Wale is, he hasn't really made a cross-over banger that everyone loves. He needs to work more on the entertainment factor.
Favorite songs: Shades, The Kramer, The Manipulation, Pretty girls

Numero Dos is Kid Cudi. You can listen to Kid Cudi for a long time before you realize he doesn't say shit about shit. His raps are really simple and nursery rhyme sounding, but that's what i love because them. Their honest and not trying to hard to be anything else. A lot of his subject matter are musings, and personal reflection (which i'm a big proponent of), plus his singin' voice sounds kind of like John Legend! Get it! His albums and mixtapes are a full package, each different scenes from the movie that is his life. You can't have one without the other! Anyway me and Kid Cudi are getting married mad soon. (Call Me!)
Favorite Songs: 50 Ways To Make A Record, Mauie Wowie, Super Boo, Pursuit of Happiness, Ho' is short for Honey

Tercero is Wiz Khalifa. I can't really tell you what i like about him. His beats don't overpower his songs but they have enough going on to make you listen. He balances all the elements of a good rapper without being known for anything, specific. Kind of like a jack of all trades. I think it's his voice, and his swag. He has one of those listenable voices that you fall in love with subconsciously. Only thing is you can listen to a whole mixtape and probably only remember one song. His songs aren't memorable but i just love the sound of that man's voice!
Favorite Songs: Ink My Whole Body, Take Yo Bitch, The Thrill, Star Power, Weed Roller

Last but...least is J.Cole. I empathize with his plight which is similar to Drake's. He's just an average suburban-type boy, tryna make it. As a college student, i can dig it. His beats are so, for lack of a better word, boring. (Hook this man up with a producer!)He makes a statement. He's obviously educated and got the maad skills, but where's the entertainment factor. (Drake has him on that one, plus Drake sings too! Only thing about Drake is Young Money is making him more well known but way too commercial, yuuuuck.) Though i don't ever see Jay Z promoting J. Cole like he should, tiiisk, he definitely has a big future ahead of him.
Favorite Songs; Lights Off, Split You Up, Losing My Balance

Anyway so these are my favorite rappers right now.
On the flipside, Asher Roth is kinda wack to me cause he never says anything. His flow is .:thumbs up:. but his punchlines are waaack. "You know the world's gone mad when blacks wear plaid and Mariah has married Nick Cannon."<---way to make a statement, your world is very small. Broaden your horizons and get a new angle! You know how to make a hit (I Love College), just go the Soulja Boy route and sell out. & I hate the way Charles Hamilton samples. It's not smooth at all. I like those "oooh shoot, that's where they got that from?" samples. You know like how Jazmine Sullivan's "Bust Ya Windows" is sampled from "Crank Dat Souljaboy"? But some of his rhymes are iight and Brooklyn Girl is my jam! Lil' Wayne, Nicki Minaj and people of the like have surpassed rap and officially become popstars, sooorrry. Drake is not mentioned cause i can't figure out if i see him as a rapper, a singer, or a producer. Whatever it is, I Like it!

A Ranting Mood

Random Sidenote: My Cat, Chloe, is My Main Chick, Be Jeal!

*Rant #1: Predestination and luck are based on the same sentiments. Both shouldn't be used as an excuse to sit around and wait for things to happen. Don't wait for life to happen to you, happen to life.

*Rant #2: I have decided to delete all songs that objectify women from my itunes. That's right, "every girl" has to go! Unacceptable. Don't get me wrong, i'm not your stereotypical super-crazy feminist but, objectification primes you to be disrespected. If you listen to these things on a regular basis, you will get used to them. Next thing you know some dude is disrespecting you. Because you were primed for it, maybe your okay with that too! Nah uh, Ladies!

In Wale's song, The Manipulation, he says that when he uses the word bitch, it's meant to be artistic not disrespectful. He further explains by saying that there are 2 types of guys you will meet, the ones that will call you by your name or the ones that will call you a bitch-->You choose!
The word bitch would be referring to ignorant birds, who will do anything for a buck or their 15 minutes, not real women who he would actually want to involve himself with. Real women respect themselves and wouldn't stand for objectification, which leads to disrespect, which leads to....hmm the possibilities. Don't be that bitch, take a stand!
