By Langston Hughes

The sea is deep,
A knife is sharp,
And a poison acid burns -
But they all bring peace
For which the tired
Soul yearns.
They all bring rest
In a nothingness
From where
No soul returns.

It's all in the Accessories

So I'm extremely into accessories. I believe that ur jewelry, shoes, purse, jacket, etc makes ur outfit NOT ur clothes. It seriously takes me longer to pick out my accessories than it does my clothes.

Anywho, I say all that in order to introduce my new "segment".

Instead of doing an outfit of the day post, I'm going to do accessories of the day. It's basically a way to showcase my "rings and things"

Hopefully I keep up with it.

Things That Make Me Smile

I went to my local barnes and noble the other day to check out some poetry books and I just had to a take a picture of this ish.

Do you see that? They seriously only had 4 Langston Hughes books, 2 of which I already own. I seriously couldnt believe it. They're straight lackin. They had a bunch of Emily Dickenson and Shakespeare books, but only four hughes' books....psh. Couldnt believe that...

I just had to share.

“He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.”
Proverbs 13:20
"A heart at peace gives life to the body."

Proverbs 14:30
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” - Carl Rogers

Each day I'm loving myself more and more. I'm less concerned about what others are doing, and more concerned about what feels right to me. Above all else, each day, I'm growing.
"What is poetry? It is the human soul entire, squeezed like a lemon or a lime, drop by drop, into atomic words."

-Langston Hughes
"A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a love sickness. "

-Robert Frost

So I'm sitting in the library meeting with my group tonight, and one of my group members says something very interesting. He looks around and says something to the effect of " wow, look at all these books. in a few years theyll be obsolete. We can do all our research and everything online." Another member shakes her head in agreement and says "yeah, i havent had to actually use a book for research since high school. my teacher made us all use an actual book, no internet."

As I sat there and listened to their conversation, I couldn't help but think about how I would feel if books were all of a sudden obsolete, and reading online was officially the norm.

I personaly don't like that idea. I love books. As wonderful as technology, and the internet, is, nothing beats being able to open a new (or old) book and having the ability to let your mind run free....

But yeah. I don't really know where I was going with this. I guess I just figured I'd share. lol

Wonderful Short Documentary

Oh You Fancy Huh?

I've never actually heard that song (not a Drake fan). But it just seemed like a really good title.

I first wanted to go with a line from Clock with No Hands by The Roots. This line has been in my head since I first heard the song.

"I was married to a state of mind, but I divorced it."

Lately, I havent been thinking like myself. Besides my neverending fantansy's revoloving around "him", my normal thought process has been all out of whack.

You would think that thats a bad thing. But it's actually really good.

I've been less concerned about what the next persons doing, and more concerned about me. I've been feeling myself. I look in the mirror and I like what I see (so much so that I've been filling my cell phone up with daily pics. vain, I know. lol). I've been calm. Not letting my situation and the people around me get the best of my emotions.

I'm just, in a whole new frame of mind.

I don't know how or exactly when it happened, but I'm loving it. And I hope I keep it up!

And He's Back

Back in my head. Back in my thoughts. Back in my realm....

I hate it! -_-

Nail Polish of the Week

I'm pretty much in love with Essie's "Tart Deco" and China Glaze "Recycle". I just feel like they go together so well. Complete compliments. =)

Nail Color of the Week

"Van D'Go" by Essie, with a coat of a "Carnival" by Essie on top for the sparkles.

*I noticed that I'm wearing the exact same ring on all of my nail polish post as of late. Which is strange cause I actually dont wear that ring very often. lol*

I believe the media has to much control over society. The internet, music, movies, tv they all tell us what we as a whole should be thinking, doing, etc.

I want to be an individual again. I want to be me.

I've deactivated my facebook and I wont be getting on until at least the end of the semester.

I've decided to decrease how much mindless internet browsing I do. Pick a few a blogs, a fave show (NCIS of course), and some news and just stick to logging onto those sites.

And of course log on for school stuff too.

I want to read and write more.

I'm basically tuning out.

Of course I'll continue to blog. It's my own thoughts, so its not impacting me negatively.

But I just need a break.

I need to love me. Love my body. Love my brain. Love my life.

And technology really doesnt do a good job of allowing the individual to love themselves.

Quote of The Day

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

-Friedrich Nietzsche

Get Out Of My Head!

I am obsessed with a man I dont even know.

Luckily for me, he has dissapeared off the face of the earth.

Hopefully he doesn't reappear anytime soon....
