DO YOU KNOW WHAT RYHMES WITH SLOTH?
Rape Sloth is EVERYWHEREEEEE. I cannot go on Instagram, FB, Twitter, or Tumblr without seeing this animal. He is all the rage. No one is really sure where he came from but there have been hundreds of this image with different perverted captions floating around. If theres anyone that loves a good perv comment it's me but this sloth has me beat. He was recently arrested, thats how real it got. Don't you worry though he was released on bail the same evening so there will be plenty more of of his gross comments this summer. Watch your back he's everywhere. SLOTH.SLOTH.SLOTHHHHHHHH.
_____MY JOURNEY _____
So as we all know winter can be a killer on the social life, just a hint of wind chills and I'm under the covers with a book n some hot chocolate ( ain't nothing wrong with that, if u ask me) ..until the winter pounds start creeping up on ya... So to kill my winter blues and stay warm and fit. I turned to Hot Yoga. Its amazing, I'm so happy I opened my mind and finally got over my fears of intense heat n suffocation.

Listen up peoples, no one is perfect, not you certainly not I, .. not even the Kardashians.
But guess what, we weren't meant to be, we are all different and unique, we all have flaws, fears and doubts, weaknesses, predicaments and blah blah blah.... well I do.
Now you can sit there and be consumed by whatever it is, or whom ever it is and let a another month, week or year pass you by aaaaand remaining the same predicament or at this very moment you can stand up and ... literally.. (now get up look in the mirror, identify who you are, what you want to be) now trust.. this is harder than it sounds. In order for this to work, you have to be honest with yourself annnnd.... wait here is the cool part, you won't be judged (unless your attention craving self is, thirsty enough to post it on FB or IG)... don't be thirsty!... where was I ... so yeah identify who you are and your predicament, why you are in this predicament, (don't blame anyone... no pointing fingers, at least not yet). Now that you have come to terms with that it's time to make a change.
Today ____ I __________ am in ______, this makes me unhappy and I don't like feeling unhappy, I don't like my present predicament, therefore I will make a change ( list some steps you can and will take to make this change). It won't be easy but, nothing worth having is.
* Remember change is not an event but, a process.
TTYL peoples, - Think positive thoughts.
Hey Hey Peoples, I waited an extra day to give y'all a chance to sober up...drinks water ..takes Advil.. lol. you'll thank me later.
Any who I opted out of the festivities this year, or at least tried to, I was at work till 11, my sis n her "beau", stopped by n we rang it in on the roof of the Stratus, I only had 3 gulps of Champagne from the bottle... yup big step up from last year.
so of course the resolutions have began. some of us have many and some of have non. I've been asking every one:
How was your 2012?
What made it so amazing? or not so Amazing?
What are you hoping for in 2013?
What changes would you like to see in your life?
How are you going to make that happen?
Of course by the second question, they're totally annoyed with me...buuut I think that's because, I am asking a question that requires one to be real with them self. If not now then when?
So please take the time if possible 10 minutes or so and answer these questions, post it in the comment box if you feel like you got some powerful prolific proverb lol. Or just be real honest with yourself.
I asked an older woman (very successful) If she had a new years resolution? she said no, why wait for a new year, every day is a chance for a new resolution...I replied #TRUDAT.
That brings me to this I'm gonna created a section: Words of Wisdom from Old Folks Who made it.
Election day 2012 is finally here folks. I hope your up and out casting your votes for our President Barack Obama. We all want change but it can't be done over night, everything takes time..eh about FOUR MORE YEARS should get us going. Don't let your voice go unheard. The time is now, stand up for what is right.
Grace and Peace Peoples.... Hurricane Sandy has come " BAD UP DI PEOPLE DEM, POPPED DEM DOWN" and gone. Leaving behind a tableau of damage, destruction and grief. To be quiet honest I wasn't quiet sure what to expect, being from the Caribbean a hurricane/ tropical storm meant, Turn off di light and di T.V and a big "pot a soup". I decided to be prepared and not over anticipate, hence I packed an overnight bag and headed to work Monday morning (Manhattan) for some OT.
All day my coworkers and I were wide eyed in search for a glimpse of Sandy, all we saw were few trees averagely swayying in the wind, and few drops of rain, all while people scurried back and forth getting last minute preparatory supplies. by 8pm we assumed Sandy was almost out of town, considering that we barely felt any effects. We were quickly proven wrong by 8:30 pm when the power went out, needless to say we spent the entire night in darkness until daylight. 9am as my coworker and I left work and attempted to drive to Brooklyn we were met by uprooted trees, closed bridges and tunnels, we were trapped in the city with no way out, until the afternoon.
It wasn't until I reached home that I became aware of the staggering toll- in lives disrupted and lost and communities washed out. Sandy claimed more than 40 lives in the US and Canada, including 18 in the city. A rampaging fire reduced more than 100 houses in Queens. Explosions and downed power lines left the lower part of Manhattan and 90% of Long Island in the dark. The NYC subway system - a life line for millions was paralyzed by flooded tunnels and was expected to remain as such for days. My prayers go out to all those who suffered losses due to hurricane Sandy.
Even with all that, I'm beyond grateful because it could've certainly been a whole lot worse.
A few thing I knew but I am now Certain of:
- One can never be too prepared. Always have a safety kit, in preparation for emergencies and natural disasters. (first aid kit, flash lights, batteries, canned foods, water etc...)
- Our city; as great as it is, is certainly not prepared, or able to withstand natural disasters. ( I mean there is always room for improvement. ) clearly!
- Last but certainly not least. MTA's fare hikes are way too high... only for them to flop and leave us stranded. an entire day before the storm and days after... NOOO SAH DEM DEH DEAL WID WE WICKED, DEM BETTA HURRY UP AND RECTIFY DI PROBLEM. considering how much we pay, they ought to have more innovative ways to deal with situations as such.
- TTYL PEOPLES BE BLESSED

"AN IDLE MIND IS THE DEVILS PLAYGROUND."
*"An idle mind is also a bored and frustrated mind. Either is fuel for the person to do and contrive things that he/she would not normally contemplate.If your mind stays busy with your everyday thoughts you will not end up in the devil's playground."
*"Since sin originates in the mind, an idle mind means that your mind is not occupied with good or Godly thoughts, which in turn leaves your mind wide open for satan to fill with evil thoughts."
*"It means if you don't educate yourself and keep busy you'll get into trouble."

Got to have a good vibe!

If you get down and you quarrel everyday,
You're saying prayers to the devils, I say. Wo-oh-ooh!
Why not help one another on the way?
Make it much easier. (Just a little bit easier)
Say you just can't live that negative way,
If you know what I mean;
Make way for the positive day,
'Cause it's news (new day) - news and days -
New time (new time), and if it's a new feelin' (new feelin'), yeah! -
Said it's a new sign (new sign):
Oh, what a new day!

Jah love - Jah love (protect us);

3. You can't love two people at once; if you can find room in your heart to place another then the first love does not belong.
From Sconex, Black Planet, Myspace, hi5, Facebook, Tumblr, and now Instagram social networks have become very popular over the years. Being able to socialize with people all over the world from a device in the palm of your hand is amazing and I don't think everyone understands the power in that.
Last night the 40/40 nyc was put to good use. The club was used by its owner to host a fundraiser for president Barack Obama. The 40,000 dollar a plate dinner was a success. Jay&Bey managed to raise a whopping 4million dollars which will go towards the campaign.
...How perfect is this photo, it just needs a lil Michelle.
By this time I'm usually over the top Jamaican and energized. Bouncing off the walls at bbq's and outdoor parties, with no clothes and flags tied everywhere. No behavior, jus' mad a road! This year? None of hat, I didn't even realize the parade was on Monday until a few seconds ago while watching the news. Is it just me or has the West Indian Day Parade landed in summer jam land?
Where people go but don't really care? You know it rains every year and the rules get more and more ridiculous? no? just me ? ok. I'm probably getting old, or the shooting right next to me last year has probably scared me away from loud music and strangers. If you are celebrating this weekend, drink up, let loose, just be safe. Bless.
Is it just me or is Dawn Richard a force to be reckoned with? Not only did she survive auditions, several group cuts, even made it to a whole nother diddysperiment, shes making it on her own after being dashed by the career cutter himself. People that usually get in the game thru Diddy are out of sight as soon as hes finished playing with them. This is not the case for this young lady. Her music is amazing, sounds like nothing else in circulation. You can see,feel, hear, and damn near taste that hunger. The choreography and styling? HONEY. WORK. I've grown to be a major fan so I hope this continues because she could raddle some cages.

When did drugs become the cool thing? I mean there was a point when you had to crack jokes on strung out people, now you're the joke if you're not one. Like, whaaaauuut.
A little underaged drinking was the craziest thing when I was 18, now at 21 everyone I popping and snorting. I'm not about that life, and you shouldn't be either. I think it's ridiculous. How can you see elders pumping gas, begging for change, or slumped over looking pitiful and lead yourself down the same path?
August 2012 my beautiful country turned 50 years old, it was a magical experience. I couldn't think of a better place to bring in my 21st birthday. The festivities, food, family.. and vibes were amazing. So many people out in the streets peacfully celebrating the freedom of their counrty.
Street performances, beach parties, flags hung and painted every which way you turned.
The shooting occurred during a sold-out midnight premiere of the new Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises," when Holmes, 24, allegedly unloaded four weapons' full of ammunition into the unsuspecting crowd.
The number of casualties makes the incident the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.
An honors student and Ph.D. candidate at a nearby college with a clean arrest record, Holmes allegedly entered the movie auditorium wearing a ballistics helmet, bulletproof vest, bulletproof leggings, gas mask and gloves. He detonated multiple smoke bombs, and then began firing at viewers in the sold-out auditorium. Holmes, who is being held in jail and will make his first court appearance Monday, is originally from Riverside, Calif., where he attended the University of California branch, Oates told the news conference this evening. "Neighbors report that he lived alone and kept to himself,"
Whoever you are, wherever you are… I’m starting to think we are a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to. My loved ones are everything to me here. In the last year or 3, I’ve screamed at my creator. Screamed at clouds in the sky. For some explanation. Mercy maybe. For peace of mind to rain like manna somehow. 4 Summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that Summer and the Summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile. I’d hear his conversation and his silence.. Until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping. No negotiating with the feeling. No choice. It was my first love. It changed my life. Back then, my mind would wander to the women I had been with. The ones I cared for and thought I was in love with. I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager. The ones I played when I experienced a girl too quickly. Imagine being thrown from a plane. I wasn’t in a plane though. I was in a Nissan Maxima. The same car I packed up with bags and drove to Los Angeles in. I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for them, know I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldn’t admit the same. He had to go back inside soon. I was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn’t tell me the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. I felt like I’d only imagined reciprocity for years. Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No. I wasn’t on a cliff. I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be fine and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on. I kept up a peculiar friendship with him because I couldn’t imagine keeping up my life without him. I struggled to master myself and my emotions. I wasn’t always successful.
The dance went on.. I kept the rhythm for several Summers after. It’s Winter now. I’m typing this on a plane back to Los Angeles from New Orleans. I flew home for another marred Christmas. I have a window seat. It’s December 27, 2011. By now, I’ve written two albums. This being the second. I wrote to keep myself busy and sane. I wanted to create worlds that were rosier than mine. I tried to channel overwhelming emotions. I’m surprised at how far all of it has taken me. Before writing this, I’d told some people my story. I’m sure these people kept me alive. Kept me safe… sincerely. These are the folks I wanna thank from the floor of my heart. Everyone of you knows who you are.. Great humans. Probably angels. I don’t know what happens now, and that’s alright. I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore. There’s probably some small shit still, but you know what I mean. I was never alone, as much as I felt like it..As much as I still do sometimes. I never was. I don’t think I ever could be. Thanks. To my first love, I’m grateful for you. Grateful that even though it wasn’t what I had hoped for and even though it was never enough, it was. Some things never are…And we were. I won’t forget you. I won’t forget the Summer..I’ll remember who I was when I met you. I’ll remember who you were and how we both changed and stayed the same. I’ve never had more respect for life and living than I have right now. Maybe it takes a near death experience to feel alive. Thanks. To my mother, you raised me strong. I know I’m only brave because you were first…So thank you. All of you. For everything good. I feel like a free man. If I listen closely, I can hear the sky falling too.
Start the countdown its almost july. The PNA shop page will launch at midnight July1st and you will then be able to shop vintage and rare finds, as well as clothing and accessories hand made by my sister and myself ( top, bracelet, clutch purse in photo above).
Spring and summer in New York is usually the sweetest feeling but this year somethings off. Mother nature has been eating too many triply treats. I took these photos three days in a row and just like me you probably can't tell what season it is. It's spring. Rain, sleet, and heatwave at the same damn time.Maybe we should start bracing ourselves for 12/21/12 huh?
SHOP PNA;Whats one thing that can make this site better than it already is? Providing you with the the hand made pieces you always ask about of course. We're done being selfish with our one of a kinds, thats right we're going bulk. My sister and i have been working hard preparing multiple items in all different colors,cuts, and sizes. July 1st,2012 is the set launch date for the shop page. You'll be able to purchase handmade denim, tops, and accessories designed by my sister and myself. It's almost like as if Chupz is back but bigger and so much better.
ART IS LIFE;
I've been drawing/painting pictures and just giving them away for as long as I can remember. The other day I noticed that years have passed and there are people who still have my art on their walls. I would be a fool to ignore a sign like that, which is why Wednesday, August 8th ten of my portraits will be shown at Prestige in Brooklyn. (RSVP email firstname.lastname@example.org)
Funny thing I've been at my job for over a year, and I've probably been on the roof 5 times. My usual lunch would've been chipotle or Thai followed by a quick nap in the break room lol. Yesterday I broke the mold lol. I made the best of my situation using the great resources around me, it turned out great. So yeah spice things up try something new. ^_^
Good Morning ^_^,

Acts of Faith -by Ilyana Vanzant AKA "The Purple Book"
Have you ever worried whether there would be enough air to breath? How often do you ponder what you would do if the laws of gravity ceased to operate? For some reason you never worry about the very essential elements you need to stay alive. You just know that they will be there, and they are. You trust that your heart will beat, your blood will flow, your lungs will expand and that you will stay firmly planted on the earth. You trust that every organ will do exactly as it should. You trust that your body will support you. Why not extend that trust to every area of your life. Trust that the Universe and Creator will provide any thing that you need without any effort on your part. All you ever need to do is ask and trust.
As I trust, my needs are met.
****P.S, please be careful not to become one of those weirdos that open their mouth and only quotes from others come out, use the knowledge/ info gained and apply to your life/ issue the way you see fit.
I rushed through the busy evening streets of Chelsea to grab some quick n flavorful dinner ( if u wanna call it that). I burst into to doors of Chipotle shocked that there was only 6 people on a line that usually meets me at the door ..(I'm Famished) this line is taking forever and the Wifi in here is uuubbbeeer spotty..the woman in front of me is asking for a sample of every single thing except the damn recycled cardboard container.. as if she isn't here every monday evening, ( I know because I'm always here with her), I attempt to order a Salad but by the time I added all the damn ingredients it was clearly a burrito bowl with extra chicken... I ask for a small cup for "Water" knowing Im gonna get lemonade ( Im such a rebel), I scanned the seating area for a seat, :( only seats in the window were available, I had no choice, but I had a feeling it was a bad decision, considering that I eat like a 5 year old, n theres no cute way to eat chipotle, n if there is I have yet to discover it.
If your breathing I'm sure you know what this post is about just off the title and if you're thinking of ross you're cray cray.
This is more than a hook from that fat n*gga thats always huffing and puffing. Shit got real, Tupac is back. Tupac Shakur was the star performer at the first weekend of this year's Coachella music festival in California. Pac surprised and creeped out the crowd by appearing through a convincing, though slightly unsettling, hologram alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
