A Plea to My Head

C'mon, now. Cut this debilitating headache mess out. Please. Pretty, pretty please with a cherry on top.

Please cut it out.

I already ain't cleaned house on Sunday night like I wanted to 'cause of you. Ain't washed my glorious afro 'cause of you Sunday night, either. And now I ain't even done my daily moisturizing and combing routine for my afro today. Again, because of you.

I barely got energy to even get into the shower and make food.

C'mon, now. head. C'mon, now. I got things to do. I got posts to write, friends to talk to, internet browsing time to waste, games to play, YouTube videos to watch, and more posts to write.

I got things to do.

Please. I'm begging you at this point.

That Wonderful Feeling...

When your cousin from way, way, way, way, way on the other side of the country calls you after so, so many years of ya'll losing contact.

And she happened to call you on her birthday 'cause she was thinking about you. Ya'll giggle together.

And you ask her how old she is now, thinking that she's 18 while you're 25...but instead, she's actually 29 on this day and you forgot that you've been the baby cousin all along. Ya'll giggle together.

And ya'll talk about your rude, demanding, impossible cats that you can't live with, but can't live without. Ya'll giggle together.

And the conversation is only a few minutes and you're quietly overwhelmed because holy fucking shit, you missed her voice and you hope to see her face-to-face someday and, no, you really missed her voice. Ya'll giggle together.

And during the whole conversation, you're still so overwhelmed that you forget that it might be a good idea to exchange numbers until she brings it up first. You write down her number on a pad of paper like it's the lifesaver that it is, and then you give her your number in exchange.

And all the while ya'll are giggling together, you realize that you two giggle the. Exact. Same. Way.

It's been years upon years upon years, but shit ain't changed.

That feeling.

Yeah.

Umm...

Ya'll know that feeling when for a long, long time, you had so much shit to do? Shit that had deadlines and a whole host of other things outta your control? And it felt like time wasn't yours because you were just so busy, busy, busy, busy all the time?

And as a result, you always more or less had your day's activities planned down to the hour, including how many hours of sleep you'd get?

But then...that time is over for the moment. Now time is all yours and you thought you'd jump on the ball doing whatever you need and want to do on your own time. But...

Instead, you're kinda [happily] flailing because you kinda forgot what it's like for your day to be yours? So you're doing little things here and there, just, like...enjoying time slowing down for the moment. And you're also kinda sorta numb because you almost thought this would never come to pass.

Just...flailing around, like a happy bird.

Ya'll know that feeling?

A'ight, Y'all...

Start a countdown. My final exam schedule changed around a bit, and so it looks like Imma have a full week next week, with Friday off as usual.

So start a countdown for next Thursday evening when Amarie will finally be free.

Lord have mercy, I can't wait to feel the keyboard flying under my fingers as I write, write, write, write.

P.S Your kidneys love you very, very much, by the way. They're lil beans that filter over 47 gallons of fluid (from your blood) per day as your blood circulates. Lil beans be workin' hard.

Note to Self

You can do it. You got this. You have been doing it and you have been getting this.

You don’t have much longer-just this week with your last two tests, and then next week is only 2 days with your four finals. Boom, boom, done.

You’re gonna get that acceptance letter. You’re gonna make it.

C’mon. Just grab a hand, hold on tight, take a deep breath, and keep going.

You’re almost done. You’re doing great.

Note

Hey, ya'll! Lord, I ain't posted anything in a while. So sorry that I haven't been able to keep up with the nerding and geeking out posts-this semester is even more hectic and busy than last semester. Seems like I'm dead on my feet after every test, LOL!

But it's Spring Break, now. YAY!!! So Imma try to get something done, something posted. In the meantime, how have ya'll been doing? Please feel free to share, laugh, vent, and everything in-between down in the comments.

Love and miss ya'll to pieces!



--Love,

Amarie

A Slight Weather Nitpick

Like...is anybody else kinda ready for spring? As well as for this back-and-forth global warming weather to just get better?

There's a reason this is the kind of weather that makes people sick. Ugh.

And don't get me wrong: I absolutely love the cold. I'm born-and-raised in the South, but I got my parents' northern blood in me. (Mommy is Chicago and Daddy is New York City.) It's just that I really, really wanna wear my spring/summer wardrobe now. I miss my flip flops and my light-and-airy blouses and my capris and my skirts and, yeah, my light-and-airy blouses.

C'mon, spring. I know it's barely outta February, but move your butt. -headdesk-

First test grade from anatomy & physiology II is a trademark 97.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

May your team, be it Patriots or Falcons, win tonight! :D :D

(Uhh...I'm black and from the South, tho. So I gotta go with my Falcons. No hard feelings, y'know?)

Also, some tips from a former-medical-assistant-and-would-be-nursing-student:


-If you're gonna hit the spicy hot wings, fries, etc., please be sure to drink lotsa water, too! It isactually possible to irritate your gastrointestinal (GI) tract with too many spicy foods. (Yes, this goes for us people of color-not just white people.)

-When the commercials come on and you have to use the bathroom, use the bathroom. Your bladder loves you very much and yes, it's designed to stretch to accommodate different volumes of urine (it's why we call the bladder tissue "transitional epithelium"), but it's still good to go ahead and go when you need to!

-If you'll be sitting for most of the game, try to stand up and stretch your limbs a bit. No need for cramps! And contrarily, if you're standing, be sure to sit down and get off your feet for a while.

-Are you wearing your team's hat? Make sure that it's not too tight on your head so you don't run the risk of headaches!

-And last but not least, have a blast and may the best team win!! :D



--Love,


Amarie

I Have a Request

See, ever since we got our wittle Dante about four and a half years ago? Mommy's always been his valentine, y'know? I ask her, but apparently Dante's always already gotten to ask her first and she's always accepted.

And I'm left out in the dust. It is so unfair. I mean, Dante ain't even got thumbs to make and write her a card!

So my request is this: will someone please be my valentine? You ain't gotta fill out an application, buy me a card, flowers, or a box of chocolates. Ain't gotta do none of that.

Just lemme know if you can be my valentine, pretty please with a bright red cherry on top.

Happy MLK Day

And here Imma share what is still my favorite discovered MLK speech, Somebody Told a Lie One Day.

Yes, I'm black. I'm proud of it. I'm black and beautiful.

Happy, happy birthday to you, my dear sir. May you rest in peace and power.

First Day of School Tomorrow!!

I can't wait-I'm so excited! And I hope I'm always excited for school for as long as I go!

It's Anatomy & Physiology II and Microbiology! Nursing school, here we come!! :D :D

Edit: Also, I am so sorry that I haven't gotten to everything that I was going to write. I had a whole lot more than I expected going on and I underestimated just how tired I was. But! At least I got a lil fanfiction out with...two more to come, yes? Yay!

Love you all!!
