You made your third straight 97 in the lecture class for the semester. And you teacher still be giving you those smiles.

And then your Mommy treats you to Captain D's afterward.

Ahhh, what a good feeling.

Ya'll remember that cute, cute, smexxy guy in my class with the gorgeous twists? Well, in yesterday's class, before Mrs. A came in to give us our test? I caught his eye from across the class, smiled at him, and he smiled and waved at me!!!

He waved at me! OMFG!!!

Can you believe it?!

...And then I just smiled wider and went back to reviewing my notes. 'Cause I'm chicken.

But when I got in the car with Mommy after the test and I told her, she went, "Well, why don't you say more than five words to him? Why don't you even ask him his name? Just say, 'hey, we have a class together, but I don't know your name and you don't know mine. So hi there, I'm Amarie.' Why don't you just say that?"

Mother. I am shy. I am nerdy. I am geeky. And I am probably way, way too young for him.

Plus men are trash. Alas, I and a great many other women have been deeply disappointed over and over again to find men far and wide (whether we ourselves are interested or not) to be either just not stepping up to the plate at best (i.e, what are dishes? what is laundry?) or to be outright abusive at worst.

This one is surely trash in one or way or another, too.

So best to admire this one from afar.

Yes, I shall admire from afar.



But he waved at me!!!!

-falls on my bed and squeals-

That Amarie cannot successfully attempt a sunny-side-up egg for breakfast without the yolk staying...yucky and runny and nasty.

Yes, let it be known. Let it be known.

Imma stick with scrambled eggs from now on.

Yes, indeedy, it's true!

A dear friend of mine on Tumblr linked me to it and holy shit it's every bit as wonderful and refreshing as I thought it'd be! I missed Lin and all the Hamilton cast in general, and so this was just a delight to watch!

And I will say that, woah, I gotta get used to Lin with short hair. He looks good, although I admit that I lurve men with long hair, haha! But I'm so glad he's able to transition into new works and fun! Yay!

I am not throwin' away my shot...I am not throwin' away my shot...

Ya'll, look what my Mommy got me for a belated birthday present!!!!

Ya'll know I'm still a huge, huge Hamilton fan, right?! I done got the music, t-shirts, a tote bag (that I still haven't changed out for another purse), and the song lyrics in my head! Holy shit, thank you, Mommy! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! :D :D :D :D

Raise a glass to freedom...

Look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now...

Oh My God...

I hope ya'll don't mind, but...

I'm 25-years-old today. Oh my god. Oh my god.

"Twenty-five" is a nice number, but where did the time go?! Teehee!!

But among other things, that means it's lobster night again at my house! (Go through my food tag if you'd like to see when I first made my very own lobster tails!) Birthday night is lobster night! Yay!

amarie24: (Surprised Tiana)

I'm still exhausted, but also oh-so happy and proud of myself!!! :D :D :D

( was also the highest grade in the class, along with another girl that got a 97, too. But Imma mostly hush on that, 'kay? 'Kay.)


P.S I'm sorry, but I'm so happy that I had to share! Hope ya'll don't mind!
amarie24: (Default)

Ohhh, so glad I remembered to participate! See, I put it in my phone's calendar for when I get out of school and voila!

Hope you all enjoy and, please, if you're black and have a selfie to share, feel free to do so in the comments! -SQUEEEE!!-

Cautionary Note: Umm...please excuse the stray hairs/slightly loose clumps in this picture that I the evening...when it's still hot and humid out. See, Afro and me are truly lovers at this point. Just as with every morning (or whatever time I wake up...haha...hah...hah), I faithfully let Afro get a bit damp in the shower, then rub a leave-in moisturizer deep, deep into my hair all the way to the roots; this time I'm using a wonderful shea butter one.

(And now I'm rambling here, but I just treated myself to a coconut oil-based hot oil treatment last night, after a looooooooong day of cleaning house top-to-bottom. Ahhh, there's just something therapeutic about walkin' around the house with a shower cap on your head for 15 minutes while your hair gets a nice, deep conditioning.)


So, yes, Afro and I take good care of each other...but towards the end of the day, even in lovely September, Afro kinda loses her battle against the leftover heat and humidity. And that's what you're seeing here.

It's a good, hard-fought battle, though. It really, really is. :P

You know Autumn is already here or at least on its way when a heavy rain came the day before, and then you can open the windows early on in the day to let a nice, fresh cool breeze in through the house.

Ahhh...feels so, so very good. I love Autumn.

Here's Dante on Mommy's bed, waiting for her to come back home from work! I got right up to him, snapped the picture and, as you can see, he looked at me the whole time like, "Yeah, lady, you better snap that picture like I'm the best model you've ever seen. Damn straight."

Then, Dante still on Mommy's bed, studiously ignoring me to give himself a bath as I try to take another picture, haha!

It was thunderstorming like every other afternoon for about a week or two and poor wittle Dante can get scared of thunderstorms. So nowadays, he's taken to hanging out in my closet...after knocking over one of our family's old suitcases so he can lay atop it and sleep. That suitcase really is old-it's been around ever since way, way back in the day with my father was still alive and I wasn't even born yet. Ain't this wittle white boy one of the cutest you've ever seen?!

Dante tired out on my bed after a session of playing. That wand you see there? I got it for him for his birthday this April. My baby is four-freakin'-years-old...I ain't signed up for this shit. I ain't. :(

And here's Dante in the middle of action when he's playing. Lord, this child is a boil-and-simmer cat. I flew close to the sun like Icarus to capture this shot, LOL!

Hope you all enjoyed! :D :D :D

Ya'll know that I fuckin' lurve Spiderman and my love of him was really cemented with the 2002 movie starring Tobey Maguire (my lil self was but 11-years-old at the time and I still have my worn-and-weathered storybooks from the movie).

But this fan art re-imagining the iconic scene from that movie...?


I have not stopped screeching. And screaming. And jumping. And bouncing. I...I'm just...this is everything and then some. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

My life has been fulfilled. Goodness gracious, me.

Thanks, everyone!

Thanks for all the wonderful, supportive comments! My first day went pretty swell and I can't wait to tell you all about it later on this week and reply to you!

I'm freakin' exhausted, though, as it's nearing 7pm where I am...and the last time I was asleep was about 2pm yesterday. So I'm working on 24 hours without sleep...haha...oh, insomnia. I love you.

But! My school week "ends" on Wednesday, and I'll pop in soon after that to give you all the delicious details! Thanks again, and I love you all!

In the meantime, wanna tell me what you're up to in the comments below? Ugly, bad, good, everything in-between, let it rip! :D


P.S Naw, I'm really going to bed.
