Time & Life...

 Time simply waits for no one and that is a quote that I have to try and remember for the rest of my life. Yesterday morning I lost a great friend, He was kind, loving and one of the best friends I have ever had. Images of laughter of him and me play like an old film tape over and over in my head, I tear when I hear him say "Sade you are a good friend". Bitter sweet as I remember the tougher times where it became closer to the end. I did not want to believe he was going away so I coded it all with my work, school and me; and now I feel like shit because I felt like I could of been more of a friend to him, held his hand, wipe his tears. However I know I can't do or be everything but somehow I wish I could...

Curious clue...

Remembering as a child when everything was oh so magical, everything was smaller than you, everything was a curious clue, when soaring was true...

Purple days...

 Yesterday was a disgusting day, it was cold, rainy, dreary but I was desperate to take some photos. I am conditioned into staying indoors because of the workload of the past year; I love this break from it all. Though I did not feel like playing dress up, I just went along with the look. I didn't put on any make up and my hair is fresh out of the shower so I was certainly not in to the mood to look pretty. ...

Furthermore this week has been very interesting. I have gotten plenty of accomplished since I have been out of school. The most imperative goal in my life is to launch another shop for the Black & Olive Jewelry and I did on Big Cartel. Etsy.com did not work for me for some reason however I am going to leave some pieces on Etsy.com. I am very excited about the shop on Big Cartel and I just ordered some new pieces for the season that I hope to share with you soon. Until then please visit my store and tell me what you think, I would love some feedback and suggestions

Golden day...

   Off to a wonderful start of the week, the sun was amazingly golden today! In other words... It felt magical not getting up for school this morning, and the weather made everything just perfect. A part of me wanted to stay in bed all day to make up for the time of stress and headache because of doing so many things at once. Then I thought about Summer 2013; how fast it came and how faster it is going to go. So to be lazy at the moment is not an option... I hope...

Old news...

So now I have to prove myself. I am finally on summer vacation from school however I still have work to do. I know what I say sounds like old news but I some how feel that the only time I have is now. I must make my move or go hide in a cave somewhere... What am I going to do? I feel like a kid in a candy store...(going mad)

Underworld...


I am almost at the end of the finish line, school will be on break soon and I can rest. I have been looking forward to a summer that involves me following my dream and doing what I want to do. Not listening to anyone else but my own advice (besides the good ones). I painted this picture in my head on how this summer will be, what will I accomplish. When in truly, you make plans, God laughs at you; so I am hoping that he is on my side this time. I am planning to work on my photography a little, try and teach myself the basics, after all I taught myself the basics with Dreamweaver, Photoshop and other Adobe programs, so therefore I don't mind learning about something that I am moderately falling in love with to challenge my capabilities. It is like entering a new dimension, a world where no one wants to spill his or her secrets or see what is behind door number 1. Thanks for taking this journey with me, I know I haven't reached far however this has helped me find who and where I want to be. I am still struggling with that question but I am closer to figuring it out.

I'm Not a Bum, I'm a Human Being...


Ronald Davis is his name...

Born and raised in New York City, this is the norm. However, when I was a kid, I can remember as if it was yesterday, I told my mother that when I grow up "I am going to buy a home for all the homeless people in the world"... Some dream huh...


Fast forward to today... I guess I became conditioned to seeing these people everyday. It became something that is apart of my life, not once have I looked at these people as "humans" in the sense of consciousness. I think I just felt so bad that I wanted to block them out of my life, but that is wrong. My boyfriend showed me this video some time ago; I sat down and watched it, with tears streaming down my face. This hit home. Because I was reminded on how that little girl felt. She knew that she was going home to her warm bed, her tasty filling dinner and most importantly, the love of a family, but they are not. These people have nothing... anything! It hurts me to know that, something deep inside of me wants to do something, but what? I ask God all the time, "what can I do? Tell me what can I do?" because I don't have anything to give. When I am riding the train, I do whatever it takes to help, but there are so many dishonest panhandlers out there it is hard to differentiate on who is telling the truth. There is no reason for someone to not have a home to go to, a warm bed to sleep on, and a hot cup of soup on a Christmas Eve. No one for any reason should suffer this way. I wish I can talk about this all night but I am truly heart broken to what this world has come to. There are a lot of homeless people in New York City with no discrimination. I've seen couples, women and their babies sleeping on the streets... If that is not wicked then lord I don't know what is.... 

I want to do something, but what?

Narrow ways...



Last night was one of those nights that I could not stop thinking. What are we doing as a people, because we ignore our frustrations. Are you sometimes frustrated? Because I am, let me tell you why. I remember when life with no troubles (childhood) everything was handed to you with will and love. Now it is a struggle, but why? I am a human being, why am I paying to eat, drink water, USE water, space, and health. These are the top essentials we need just to survive everything else ok I’ll pay for. We are conditioned to do what they command without debate. You have the right to receive health care, use running water, and at least shelter. No one should be homeless, or deprived from the basics. I don't expect it be given all but at least enough to survive... The world is becoming too narrow....

Just rambling thoughts...

2 more weeks left of school, sorry I haven't been able to post however I will be all yours this summer! It  will be an adventure!
