[Holiday] Labor/Labour Day or How I learnt to love the end of summer

It’s already Labor Day?! Guys, is it just me or is 2017 in a hurry to be done? Not that I’m complaining… (see: Brexit, cholera outbreak in Yemen, US 2016 Presidential Elections, Hurricane Harvey, etc.) But I am kinda excited to see what 2018 will hold.

(Hopefully some elected officials with some common fucking sense in this country.)

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Happy Valentine’s Day guys! I know that most of y’all celebrate it everyday– if you even celebrate it at all– but have a great day regardless. In the words of Dan Savage, Fuck first!

This means before you go out to that fancy restaurant or to that show, get all of the boning out in the beginning. Because after that night out, you just may be too tired to bump pelvises.

Anyways, here’s one of my favorites from the late Gerald Levert. Enjoy!

 

[Writing] NaNo is over, hello December!

 

IMG_0300

Yes, I survived another NaNoWriMo! I think my official word count was just over 52,000, which is the most I’ve done since joining the competition. The good news is that it definitely got me back in the swing of things. The bad news is that most of this will probably be scrapped because it’s just words– which is what NaNo is suppose to be.

Happy birthday Michael Jackson!!

Apologies that this post is a little late in the day, but I really wanted to get one posted despite all the busy work I had earlier today. I was going to make a Brian McKnight post, and then realized what today is; Michael Jackson was born on this day in 1958. I know my friend Billie has been BLASTING MJ all day– she’s his biggest fan.

I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out my favorite MJ song, and I don’t really think I have one. I mean, I love this song, and Smooth Criminal, and Thriller, and Human Nature… So I guess it’s safe to say that I pretty much almost all of his songs then. Funny thing, I don’t have any of his vinyls… So that’s another thing I’ve gotta add to the list of “Stuff I wanna buy”.

(I’ve got so many lists in my phone it’s ridic but that’s another post).

New job starts in a week, my mom is getting adjusted to London and my nephew was born a few days ago! So simcha all around! Gonna pop out to visit him now, so until next post!

 

#musicMonday ~ Ludacris

I haven’t been here in a while– been very busy with my day job, finding a new job, and battling a summer cold. I’m taking a different allergy medication and it’s helping my asthma, so I’m happy to have my voice back. I’ve got some voice over stuff I’ve gotta get back to.

Anyways, I haven’t heard this song in a minute so enjoy!

 

#musicMonday ~ The Fugees

Man I miss The Fugees. They had a presence and chemistry that very few groups nowadays can match.

My week was infused with some goodness right at the very beginning. Yesterday I’d received news that I’m going to be an aunt! I’m super excited to meet my nephew later this year, and I actually got some writing done yesterday as well. I’ve been playing with the idea of writing a tv pilot, so I mapped out some notes and the beginnings of an outline. We’ll see how it goes.

In pressing news, I’ve got a semi-deadline from my publisher on my newest chapter of my novel, so I hope I don’t disappoint. I’ve got to make sure I set aside some days to write it out. Hope your week is infused with some creative goodness!
