WCW

It was never about being someone’s WCW but more about the respect behind it all
The acknowledgement and affirmation to the world is sweet, only if it’s not done for the accolades
See this social media facade of love can only make a fool jealous
100 plus likes on my picture and heart eye emojis won’t catch my interest
I need you to keep me engaged with metaphors and similes
Flowing together like the sweetest melodic symphony
The creator in you, only brings forth my intoxicating energy
This synergy of the two colliding with the moon
Yet these basic ass dudes only sing a different tune
Thinking that their money, and foreign cars will have my legs spread wide
Little do they know that this Queens standards are very high
Seduce me with your intellect, better yet have me speechless
It’s moments like those where I can weed out the ones who hide behind a mask
Pretending to have class when in reality
It’s all a lie.

SEND ME BACK SATURDAYS (SMBS) – Barcelona Edition

This story was taken from my blog I had while studying abroad in 2013, so it’ll be in present tense.

Check out my first SMBS here

Barcelona , I LOVE YOU !

I’m a little late on updating, but Second Session started the day after I returned from Barcelona, so I had to get my life together again lol.

We took a bus from Toulouse to Barcelona which was about 8 hours. That meant a lot of sleep and all the snacks we could fit into our carry on bags. We literally had food, which was really baguettes and jam!

Once we got to Barcelona we checked into our hotel, Catalonia Atenas and had one of  the best rooms in the whole hotel. Our rooms were on the 10th floor (the last floor) of the hotel and we had a balcony with an amazing view of the city!

The first night we went out to dinner with Brittany’s friends  from church who were studying there for the summer. I had the famous dish of the city, Paella. It was very delicious!

After bar hopping, we ended up at a music festival and decided to get some ice cream while watching the performances!

The next day we went out to be tourists and saw La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and some houses by Gaudi. Gaudi in my opinion made everything in Barcelona because he has numerous houses (museums), parks and such that were inspired by him.

The hike up to Park Guell, man! That was literally forever and ever. We walked up the never ending hill for what seemed to be almost 15 minutes. Luckily in between the long stretch, there were elevators to take you higher and higher. After huffing and puffing, I finally made my way up!

There were more pretty views and houses that Gaudi made here as well. The Museum of Gaudi was also there, and was pretty cool! I liked the way he sculpted the houses.

The day after we visited more tourists sites and parks. There was Parc de la Ciutadella, & the Arc de Triomf (Barcelona style). It’s sort of similar to the original Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

My favorite part of the whole trip was experiencing the night life! We went to the number one club in the city. It was called Club Catwalk, and they were NOT lying when they said it was the #1 spot! The club was packed and there were two floors: Downstairs was the techno floor and upstairs was the hip hop club. We had a amazing time and partied like the Spaniards would. It was crazy because the club didn’t open until midnight and closed at 6 am! Unlike clubs in America that open at 9/10 and close at 2. It was definitely an experience!

The last day we went to Barcelonetta Beach and visited our last museum – Museu Nacional D’art de Catalunya and hiked up Montjuic.

Overall, I had a really amazing time! I didn’t want to leave, we all didn’t actually. I definitely will be visiting again!

Year Deux

My second year of grad school has begun. It sorta sucks to know that I have one more year to go in my program, but at the same time it’ll give me more time to get some things in order. The first year flew by soooo fast! Like it’s scary how fast it came and went. Now I’m ready to tackle this second year. I’ve learned a lot of lessons last year – from operating on God’s time (which sometimes is a struggle), friendships, hair care, guy issues – been through it all. Now that I think about it, I may have been learning the same lessons, just in different forms. My biggest goal for this year is to work on my craft and tap into expanding on my hobbies. I want to perfect my writing, compile my poems, launch a new layout for the site, and start my IG account for HOTM (in hopes of gaining a larger audience). Ultimately in the long run, with this degree and license I want to become my own boss! In this digital age of entrepreneurship there are plenty of tools to help point you in the right direction. I’m making moves but I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds! There’s no greater satisfaction than seeing your vision become a reality. I’m taking it step by step, and working on each goal simultaneously.
