I haven't completely forgot the meme. But I don't feel like doing it at this exact moment so here have some videos of Florence Welch who needs to release some new material!

The video is weird but I really like the song. This band came up on my Sky Ferreria station on Spotify.

I finally have a plot for the Euphie story. At least more of a plot than I had before.

And a plot for the clock-punkish story starring Elizabeth Tudor.

The movie in my head that plays as I listen to this is me as a special agent off to save the country while striking fierce poses in my high heels.

This is a few days earlier but since I'm awake at the moment I've decided to do it now. I'm adding a new category to my attractions. Auditory. I define this as I like how this person speaks or I like their singing voice.

Okay so first up is Sexual Attraction.


Iggy Azalea, rapper

I first noticed my attraction to Iggy in her work video. I was very aroused by that video and how she moved her body. It become more apparent when I watched the Change Your Life video.


Naya Rivera, actress

I first noticed Naya in Glee. I think my attraction her began with that episode where they were singing to Will and the redheaded woman in the pool. I liked the way she moved.


Heather Morris, actress

I first noticed my attraction to Heather during the Run the World song. I loved the way she moved and her body is incredibly attractive.



My attraction Joel started to intensify in recent months. I love how charming he is and I love his sense of humor.


My crush on Alison Brie is very recent. I think it has a lot to do with the character she portrays on Community.


I have loved Alan's voice since as long as I can remember. I think I was projecting my love of him onto Snape as the character himself is kinda...well awful.

I actually put off listening to Icona Pop because I hate I Love It and my misplaced loyalty to Charli XCX haha. But I love how they sound in this song.

I love Lil Kim's singing voice. Her actual voice is kinda of girlish and soft. But her rapping voice? It's strong, it's cocky, it's assured. I love her rapping voice.

Well this brings this month's attraction post to a close. I hope you enjoyed it.

Awhile ago I bought this book on antidepressants. The title is Coming of Age on Zoloft and it's by Katherine Sharpe. I started reading it again today because of what happened this morning and I think I really needed it. I empathize with a lot of it especially the parts where the interviewees are talking about a diagnosis being a label. I especially agree with the fact that it makes you feel like a part of group and the feeling that you aren't alone and that there are others out there who know how you feel. So if you've ever taken an antidepressant of any kind I really rec this book. I'm only about 100 pages in but it's really therapeutic to read.

When I woke up I went and took a bath and I started reading this book on interviews with author. It's one of the Paris Review books. I had thought I ordered the women's writers one but I didn't. But the interview I read was with P.G. Wodehouse who's name I vaguely recognized but I did recognize the character Jeeves at least from that AskJeeves search engine.

I've just finished reading another interview. This one. I've never read any of her stuff but I would very much like to now. I love reading interviews of any kind really but especially about other authors and with artists. I like getting into a person's mind and their thought processes.

I listened to Lorde's album streaming the other day and I've just thought to think of looking for it on Spotify. I knew it was coming out but I wasn't sure when exactly. I really like 400 Lux.

I started writing on the novella for the first time in a week. I had a scene to follow the first one of chapter seventeen but after I got half through it I couldn't decided what to write next and I'm stumped at the moment. The chapter focuses on Bernadette and her thoughts about her situation with Jean Michele. I've literally just stopped.

I practiced decimals and multiplication today. See I get how to multiply but I get tripped on multiplying two digits. Like I could remember some of it but I get confused easily with it.

The French is coming along. I'm practicing with memerise which is really helpful. It's interactive and it has a lot of repetition which helps me retain more information.

Yesterday night I started reading the introductory textbook on Sociology I bought. This one is much more informative than the Spark Notes 101 book and it has suggested reading and websites at the end of each chapter.

I'm still reading Still Brave. The article that I finished reading this afternoon talked about womanism and the differences between it and black feminism. I didn't realize how different yet alike they are. I mean I call myself a black feminist instead of a womanist but it's not because of the differences are what they stand for but how it sounds. I mean if I say I'm a feminist in normal everyday life someone is more likely to know what I mean (And get negative connotations I admit) than if I say I'm a womanist. It's just a lot attached to both identifiers and I need to look into them more.

I have been replaying Iggy's Change Your Life. And you know I was thinking after I made my attraction post that I should probably have added Iggy under the sexual category because I am highly sexually attracted to her. So that might be an addition.

Tomorrow is my birthday (The song 22 no longer applies :P). I haven't decided if I'm going to go out but my mom made dressing today and I was like whaaat? She was like I wanted you to have a good meal and hey I'm not complaining.

Until next time my dears or after 12 when I make my usual birthday post.

I am loving this song but listening to the lyrics especially the chorus I am thinking to myself: "Girl you don't need his ass. Forget him." but dammit I am bopping out to this song.

I was looking at music last night on Amazon and I saw AlunaGeorge. I bought two songs and I like both of them. I just might buy the album. Someone in the reviews said it sounds like 90s R&B and I think I can hear that.

Hey you guys. My sleep schedule has been out of whack lately. I mean normally I sleep during the day but I keep falling asleep in the afternoon. Now I'm up at night as usual, but I still feel tired in the body that I don't want to sit up at the desk. Wtf? I've been taking my iron regularly and I'm drinking orange juice to give myself more Vitamin C so what's up?

Have you guys heard of Course Open Ware? Apparently this a thing where they share the course materials of various courses and disciplines for free and I am just now discovering this is a thing? Fucking ace man! I've already found some women's studies courses but I haven't down and pursued them yet.

Yesterday I went through several budget lists to find a simple enough budget sheet to help me stay in control of my finances. I think the one I'm using is from a pearl site or something? I know it had pearl in the name.

Ellie Goulding is putting out a deluxe edition of Halcyon and I want that shit so bad, but the price on Amazon for the mp3 is 18.99. Now see that's not too much but I allotted myself 20 dollars for music and I want to buy the K Michelle album when my check comes. But I fucking love Ellie and the moment I heard 'You My Everything' on Skins I fucking died. I love her music man. Idk maybe I'll just listen to it on Spotify until October.

There are a lot of books (ebooks) that I want to read. A lot of them have similar themes. So what I've decided with myself is that I will buy one book a theme and save the others for another time instead of buying all of them and not having enough money for other books.

I am really enjoying this book I'm reading. It's been a hot minute so I read a paranormal but I am really fucking enjoying this mofo.

Hair wise I don't regret cutting my hair but I haven't found a way to wear it that I'm satisfied with. I've been wearing turbans for the past few days off and on haha.

So Ben Affleck is the next Batman. Might I ask why we need a new Batman this soon? Seriously wtf? I'm not really THAT pissed over the casting as I am over bringing in another Batman so damn soon. I mean shit TDKR was last fucking year! How long was it between Batman Begins and the previous Batman movie? Somebody count that shit.

That line spoken by Anakin seems to be coming back to me especially lately. I was just telling my mom that I want more than what our lives are now. I want more money. I want more knowledge. I just want it all. I want it.

There's this saying that I've heard a lot: Be thankful for what you've got. I'm tired of being thankful. I know that we aren't as worse off as we could be. That we're only in relative poverty. But is it bad that I want more than I have? I want to make a better life for myself and for my family. I just...I want more than I have. I don't think that's such a bad thing.

Another thing I was thinking about recently. Both Jay Z and Lil Wayne aren't known for being attractive right? But I've been thinking about my responses to them. Why do I find Jay Z passable? But Lil Wayne disgusting? I mean they both put down women. Sure I love Jay and Bey's relationship but the way he refers to her in some of his songs just make me disgusted. I wonder if the way I respond to them have something to do with their complexions? Jay is noticeably lighter than Wayne. Idk that was just something I was thinking about.

I finished reading A Lady Dares today and I really enjoyed it. I like that Elise didn't try to change Dorian. Because let's be real trying to change someone rarely if ever works so I appreciate seeing that.

I started a paranormal romance this evening. It's another category line. I like it so far but the hero's name is just killing me. Certainly When I read that I was like is that for real haha.

I found this picture in my Flickr. I think this was in 2010 or something? I think I sort of look like Kerry Washington here especially in the eye area haha.

So I'm almost done with A Lady Dares. I don't know what's changed about me in the past few months but I don't simply read for pleasure anymore. I find myself analyzing things. I bought the Cambridge Companion to Feminist Literary Theory at the beginning of the moment and I realize that me being a feminist is affecting how I read now. I would say that the book I'm reading at the moment is leaning towards feminist ideals. I say this because the heroine often comments on what she's expected to do as a lady in Victorian society and how she rejects this if you know what I mean. Is that weird haha?

I also started reading The Secret Garden last night. I was combing over my bookshelf and for whatever reason I picked it up. I started reading the first page but I guess you could say it immediately grabbed me haha. I'm really enjoying it.

The Applause video premiered today and I have to say I enjoy the video more than I do the actual song. Yes Gaga is pretentious but I will say that I love how much she seems to put into her ~art~. Yes I do miss the Fame era and I wasn't that fond of BTW but I like Gaga. Idk I just like her schtick. I prefer Roar at the moment but I'm hoping I'll enjoy Gaga's album. I'm looking forward to both.

I was just reminiscing to my mom that she had bought this keyboard from Love Thy Neighbor, which is where she used to work during my elementary years. I used to love playing that keyboard. This was before I could read music, so I used to play by ear.

Anyway my songwriting class is happening in 2 days! I'm so excited! I need to look over the textbook. It's about a week or so until my other class starts, so I have a bit of time.

My mom is going out to pick up some food tomorrow.

I slept through the day today since I stayed up last night haha. Oh and I started this book, it's called Tart and it's erotica. Compared to the last erotica I read, this one is much better. It actually has a plot and structure. Is it weird that I don't like my porn to have any plot, but I like for my erotica to? Idk why that is. Maybe because I'm solely looking to get off with the porn? Hmmm...

Anyway that's how today went. What about y'all?

Alright so I was looking in the dacey tag on Tumblr even though I've only just started the show. BUT whatever. But some of the users are posting music that they think fits Dacey. So I saw one and I clicked on it and I found this. I love it so much. I looked her up. She has out two mixtapes. I haven't listened to them completely but I really like what I'm hearing. Check it out!

So I went to YouTube intending to post a music video to go along with my fabulous thoughts. Then I saw that KidFury had a new video. Then my mom called me for breakfast. I got distracted.

I can't remember what I was going to talk about, so here have some music. I discovered her stuff on Spotify after looking at Jillette Johnson's profile. The piano is a beautiful instrument.
