...and the shadows fall behind you

I can never find beauty in demise
But oh what a pleasant surprise
A glorious creation
Greeting me with salutations
I watch you wave hello
Similar to a mellow bellow
And I know that’s an oxymoron
Without you things would be quite boron
You blossom into this world at a timely manner
Spreading gracefully like a banner
A rainbow of colors so splendid
You leave leprechauns offended
Because your sight is priceless
Even Egyptian gold can`t top this
Enough to make others stop in their place
As they see God`s gospel is written in your face
Wishing they can understand
How you paint an art so grand
Spitting your poetry without motion
And still provoking such emotion
Can`t wait to see the sunrise
as opposed to watching it die

please

promise me this gets easier...
please.

my lyfe currently

up jamming “must be nice
con mi boo ;] 
“Must be nice
Having someone you can come home to from a long day of work
Must be nice
Having someone you don’t have to show they know exactly where it hurts
Must be nice
Having someone who trusts you despite what they’ve heard
Someone as mighty as a lion but still as gentle as a bluebird
Must be nice
Having someone you don’t have to tell you don’t want to be alone”

#throwup

This has been a weekend of throwup purging 

cleaned out my closet

found random clothes

shopped for the little sister

even Alfred shedded his shell(scales?)

then my body decides to purge

being sick sucks but I guess my body wanted in on the purging fun too.
Trying to figure out how I got sick
I haven`t had an appetite
Eaten mostly fruits for the last few days
Maybe this is a good thing
Hope to be in shape for some running later.


SPEAK NO EVIL


 Watch what you say. Forget the saying "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." That statement is false. Words have unlimited power. People who fight get it over with but words can stick with you for life. Eliminate words like "I can't" and "impossible" out of your vocabulary. Using phrases like those will stop you from searching for solutions to your problems. Instead, replace those feelings of doubt with questions such as "how can I" and "what do I need to do to make this possible".
Pay someone a sincere compliment at least once a day, chances are your compliment will make their day a bit brighter, and they will pass that sunshine along to others. 

devotion.

Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people,
but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.
  — Leviticus 19:18
Hanging on to bitterness and keeping alive grudges is consuming
work. It leaves little energy for blessing others, praising God, or
enjoying life. The only way to get over a bitter heart toward
others is to actively love and serve them in ways that bless their
lives. If we can’t do this because it’s hard to feel like it is the
right thing to do, we do it because we know God and want to please
him!
My prayer
Dear Father of light, love and mercy, please remove from my heart any
cynicism or delight in seeing others around me fall. Instead, help
me to be a rescuer rather than a neglector. I want your grace to be
seen in my friendships and in all that I do. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

to my luck jason

to my lucky jason
You are the shopping cart in my night sky
got me feeling like I`m on a sugar induced high
sweeter than strawberries with splenda
splendidly blended
something like my addiction to Arizona but amended
if I am sourpatch kids, first sour then i`m sweet
well baby you must be my snickers satisfying my every need
my lucky Jason strum your strings thirteen times
and open your heart and mind enough to receive my rhymes
marching to two different drums like a complicated melody
that even the most beautiful songstress cannot sing on key
piecing together like thousand piece puzzles
slowsly but surely fitting together, nuzzle
if only my dreams were premonitions
no premature decisions just pure intuition

deepest fear

I`ve asked people what their deepest fear is. I have 2


* not knowing and achieving my purpose in this world
* not tapping into at least 75% of my potential


I have been happier than ever recently but have felt stagnant and it`s taking a mental toll on me.


But today Ms. @mariep719 sent me a few quotes.






[3:46:38 PM] @mariep719: "That’s why nothing matters more than
knowing God’s purpose for your life, and
nothing can compensate for not knowing it—
not success, wealth, fame, or pleasure. Without
a purpose, life is motion without meaning,
activity without direction, and events without
reason. Without a purpose, life is trivial, petty,
and pointless."




[3:47:15 PM] @mariep719: A young man in his twenties wrote, “I feel
like a failure because I’m struggling to become
something, and I don’t even know what it is.
All I know how to do is to get by. Someday, if
I discover my purpose, I’ll feel I’m beginning
to live.”




[3:48:31 PM] moi: omgeeee
 thats how i feel. remember my issue w/ stagnation even though i`m happier than i`ve been in a while


[3:48:40 PM] @mariep719: exactly why i showed u that quote




^^ this is why she is my accountability partner.
she has a beautiful soul. i hope that you all can find an honest, real, loving, beautiful, and intelligent friend like i`ve found in my ebonyfreebird ;] check out her blog!

Google TV Combines TV, Android and All of the Internet

Google TV Combines TV, Android and All of the InternetGoogle is launching something called Google TV. It brings regular TV and web video to your TV. Plus, Android apps. Apps! Live Updating
Google TV Combines TV, Android and All of the InternetGoogle says there are two worlds now, the web, which lives on your laptop and your phone, and the TV world, which lives on your TV. 
But why aren't the solutions today making traction? Here are 3 reasons, according to Google.
1. They dumb down the web for TV. You're re-creating the web. "It's WAP all over again." "We need to find a way to bring the entire web to the television."
2. "They're all closed." Once you can go anywhere on the web, you don't want to go back.
3. The solutions today make you choose between web or TV. If you have to switch between the two, it's over. You've lost users.
Google wants to incorporate both into "a single seamless experience."
Google TV Combines TV, Android and All of the Internet
And here's a demo explaining HOW this stuff all works.

phone notes. smileyface

 after having a healing conversation con mi madre. 
i called him.
found random notes on my phone
oh the beauty of my random thoughts.




"time doesn`t heal wounds the mind just covers them with scar tissue" 
--oh the reality in this statement is so amazing. i may come back to that for a post later

Poem 1: luckycharms?
you are my rainbow
you were orange when your fire lit my desire
you were blue when i saw you clear as day
you were purple at the times when we were together and i felt your royalty
you were green not like envy because that`s not your style but on days when trying to understand you made me sick
you were red when passion was embarked on your mind and body
you were yellow like caution warning signs that say "I follow my own rules"
you were beautiful as my rainbow
but my pot of gold has run out
you were a magnificent sight to see for that brief time
don`t be afraid to poke your head out again
I may need to see you when it rains.
I know that you were only temporarily mine because I felt that you belonged to someone else.


Poem 2: untitled
while you curve and crawl to find my nooks that keep me hooked
we fight in the most beautiful way
you push, i push back, sometimes pull
moving to a rhythm we both can attune to
symphonic sounds of pleasure and joy occasionally pain
but the good kind you don`t mind feeling the next day.
i laugh, you laugh, we laugh
i force my eyes closed believing in the saying that the best things in life are unseen.
this must be it because if there is anything better I don`t know if I can handle it.
You`re a drug that I don`t mind overdosing on
my promethazine lips that continue to sip
your codeine  
as you pour in that purple stuff that gives me a drag, a lag, the itis.
Once we sleep i watch you find peace
the beauty of your bone structure puts the Greeks to shame
i`m thinking maybe they modeled Adonis after you...

(that`s all i had on that one. maybe i`ll go back and finish it)

abstaining...

So it all started 2 nights ago with a tweet from @TonyGaskins via @mariep719

"sis, keep your legs closed b4 marriage forces a man to stepup in your life or stepout of your life"

@mariep719 asked me what I thought about this. I told her I kind of agree. Truthfully I didn`t wait and had no qualms about not waiting. But one of my most notable sayings is "sex is like Pringles, once you pop the fun don`t stop" But after a period of time the fun may stop. it becomes just an action or what's next to do in a relationship. You don`t want to be reduced to what's next. This isn`t right it`s not how it`s suppose to be. 

"what you want might make you cry, what you need might pass you by."
xx Lauryn Hill

Not many people can remove their emotions from sex, especially the emotional creatures also known as females. For this reason I agree with Tony Gaskins tweet. Don`t seek for a relationship in sex unless that`s the only point of the relationship. and if that`s all it is it probably won`t last long.

Don`t ever confuse
when he`s into you
and when he enters you
what makes sense to you
and what your senses do
when he bends the truth
and when he`s bending you...

xx Bradley via http://tonnybonandtreats.blogspot.com/ << check her out!

Odd that I ran across this when recently my mind state has had me leaning away from sex. I have decided that I will abstain now to indulge later. i want to feel special and stop giving a piece of myself everytime my 'needs' come knocking. Biblically speaking sex=marriage union.. How many people are you married to? Can you keep up with those marriages? Do you want to? 

My advice just be catuious and do what`s best for you. 
Use your brain. guard your heart. find peace

the late night photgraphs

So I ran across some pictures
It`s amazing what a picture can do
They`re definitely worth a thousand words
A thousand smiles
A thousand tears
We were happy
We were flirtatious
We were a monument
We were paparazzi perfect
We were beautiful
We were unpredictable
There were days when I missed that
Took months to get over you
Wishing you would want me the way
I wanted you
The way I needed you
You just had to be friends with my friends
You had to be likable
You had to be charismatic
You had to be
You had to be unforgettable
There were days I couldn`t get you out my sheets
Your scent lingered
Your touch lingered
Your voice lingered
Your taste lingered
Damn that John Legend song
How could you ruin my favorite song?
You were my anti-drug
I was addicted to you
I`ve been sitting here surrounded by blunt leaves
Trying to kill the brain cells of all the memories of you and me
No matter how “high” I could get
John Legend couldn`t erase your memory
Unfortunately he brought it back
Hit me like an 18 wheeler every time I heard the melody
Instead of beautiful sounds
I heard car wrecks and chainsaws
Broken hearts couldn`t be mended
Even if I knew a welder
Cause unfortunately this wasn`t a clean rip
Possibly something a surgeon could handle
I used to smile at the sound of your name
Then I got tired of it so I rearranged it
Now it doesn`t sound so much like mine
But it`s cool now
Nothing`s the same now
And if you were standing right in front of me
I still wouldn`t know who you are.
All of this came to me from a picture
I tried to make it worth a thousand words
But you`re not worth that many to me anymore

i just put in my retainer...

my thoughts on Alicia`s Unthinkable video

Okay... maybe it`s just me but I could have sworn Unthinkable was about something completely different. so what`s with the video. The song is not about interracial dating!!! Alicia herself is not fully African-American. which throws the whole video out of context. Don`t get me wrong i definitely like the video concept and even how they showed the changes in eras. Very talented cinematography whoever the director/producer was. But Alicia really?!?! We`re all big kids here we know what the song is about. I was really looking forward to a video that depicted the song. guess not. Did she give a reason for the video? If anyone knows of it let me know I`m very curious.

17.5.10

we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character; and character, hope.

partial journal entry.

a wind current flowed through my veins but luckily the oxygen bubble didn`t pop. it found its way out in the form of a yawn and as my mouth stretched the current exited and my mind stretched taking in all the glories mother nature has to offer. she is definitely the most beautiful and powerful women in the world, maybe she`s a black woman...

thoughts of the day.


"I was angry with you until it occurred to me that you might die."
William Ball

Personal story:

my brother is now incarcerated. it had been a while since i spoke with him and these recent weeks. i have had family members pass away and my anger towards my brother is minimal in the grand scheme of things. i think its weird how it takes something tragic to get some people to hit realization. i will admit that i have been one of those people before. 

when my brother called me i didn't answer thinking why did it take you so long to check up on your friggin` little sister. then a week later i receive a text message disclosing that he may potentially be going to jail. :( talk about debby downer. i was nobody's friend for a while. enjoying my own little bubble and now i wish i could have just answered the phone that day. not like it would have made that big of a deal. 

i`m less than a month from returning HOME and he won`t be there for me to say. distraught can`t even describe how i feel. but it has motivated me in multiple ways. 

1. the Justice system is flawed. but i love it. I am now more motivated to get to my goal of law school then I have been since I first made the decision of becoming a supreme court justice years ago. 
2.  life is not promised. so carpe diem! but don`t be stupid about it. tell those you love that they are appreciated before the opportunity to do so is taken away.  


3. freedom is not free. 
i have some of the best people in my life. they continue to bless me everyday and I can do nothing but thank God for them. when the little or big things get me down i know i have a wall stronger than China's behind me. I pray for them that God can continue to strengthen them. for w/o him and them much wouldn`t be possible for me. Through all of this work, trials and tribulations, joys and pains I have you. 

Thanks dears ;]

what made you cut your hair and all?

multiple reasons: i haven`t known the real texture of my hair. felt like i was missing a true essence of bridget. also, relaxers aren`t healthy for hair so i want to treat myself and my hair well.

31.3.10

No I didn`t cut my hair to feel liberated!

I do not believe that the "creamy crack" is a symbol of the white man holding me down and telling me what beauty is. i disagree. I am old enough to make my own decisions and last night I made the decision to chop it all off. I have nothing against the women that feel that relaxers oppress them, that is your choice. I personally made the decision to do not only what is best for my hair but also what is best for me. You see I want to know the natural me, the real me and I haven`t even known my real texture in a long time due to relaxers. Now is the time for my next affair and I plan on this being a long lasting prosperous one. So for those who have asked how long this is going to last, don`t hold your breath.

But this was not a spur of the moment chop. I transitioned by having the mohawk first I knew that I was on the way to au naturale. Last night I chopped the rest off. I will put up pics later.

Funny thing is I am not my hair just came on Pandora... ;]

elitaste.shirt.day

Today I was wearing my Elitaste x NUE Agency shirt from CMJ Showcase in October.

if you don`t know about it look it up. I went for my birthday this past year. I loved it.
But this post is not about the show it's specifically about Jesse Boykins III.

Now I first heard this fine piece of male Godiva on a Theophilus London track pre-show. Due to the fact that it was just the chorus I never really knew his full potential. After seeing him live, I decided to come and of course load my computer and Zune with all of the aritsts from the show. I have since fell in love I already have an affair with music but this brotha put some new moves and spins that had me tunneling back down the path of amor... or Amorous as one of his tracks is titled.



This song is something else. But, my ultimate favorite that heightened my appreciation for artists who write their own works. poet>words>lyrics> get it! well that song is called Pantyhose... now you know for a fact that any man singing about pantyhose has wrote his own song. And if the title doesn`t make you a believer check out the video below... I totally envy the young lady who got called on stage. He better do this next time I see him, cause I will be front row center, well maybe side so I can walk up easier :) You read that Jesse remember me, lol. He`s definitely not reading this but worth a dream. Check out the video. and definitely give props where they belong to the band The Beauty Created. Amazing especially that trumpet player almost makes me wanna leave my sexiest instrument ever, the saxophone... almost
