HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope you guys started the New Year off right, I know I did! I attended a black and gold themed house party with my homegirl and we had a great time! It was good seeing old high school friends and catching up, all while vibin to mix from the DJ. It’s always funny when you run into people from high school. Some look and act pretty much exactly the same, some people changed (that would be me), and some people got SUPA FINE (the DJ lol). I didn’t really do much dancin, just posted up with a drank in my hand and did a lot of head bobbin lol. Of course there’s always a little ratchetness that occurs at a house party but it’s all good. A girl seemed to be upset with someone and a fight almost happened. Crazy thing is the drama was happening right in front of me, but I couldn’t tell you who she was mad at for the life of me. I kept looking around but didn’t see anybody else as upset as her. Anywho like I said I had a good time and I look forward to joining everyone again next year.

 A new year for a lot of people is the beginning of a new journey. We start reflecting on the past year, preparing ourselves for change, and making New Year’s resolutions. My resolutions are usually the same as most peoples…let go of some things, lose weight so I can be summertime fine, be healthier, and just continue to strive to be a better person inside and out. But this year I want to go a little more in depth and be a little more specific so I decided that I’m going to do a vision board. It’s a great idea to help you stay motivated and stay on track of things. I’ve provided some example below that I found from pintrest if you’re interested in creating your own.

In my opinion there is nothing wrong with wanting to better yourself. Although I think change can be done at any time not just at the beginning of the year, I don’t criticize or judge people for making New Year’s resolutions. As much as I love social media it’s sad how many discouraging remarks I saw in regards to people wanting to change. There was one meme in particular that was circulating all over the internet. It symbolized a black woman wanting to leave all of her problems in the past and start brand new for the New Year. When I say people on Instagram can take somethin good and tear it to pieces smh, I mean they recreated the meme over and over again to be so negative. I just kept thinking I don’t see anything wrong with this picture and what’s really sad is it was the black men more than anybody that was tearing the sista down. Hey we gotta do better people…but when you know better, you do better. Peep the pics and video below…

 

P.S. Why did I receive a text from an Ex that I hadn’t talked to in over 3 months on New Year’s Eve? That’s what I’m NOT gonna do for the year 2015! Ain’t nobody got time fa dat!

DMA Late Night Block Party

If you enjoy live music, a big crowd, good food, and art this is where you need to be every 3rd Friday of the month! It’s for all ages from 6pm-Midnight and it’s FREE! Well everything but the food and parking. You can enjoy the exhibits and programs inside the museum or hang out and socialize outside and just enjoy the atmosphere and live music. The Klyde Warren Park is a nearby hang out spot also.

I suggest getting there early because I got there around 7:45 and all the decent priced close parking lots were full. I wound up paying $15 and had to walk like a block or two. Plus I missed the Dallas Mavericks street team and cheerleaders and the drummers. So I’m assuming that whatever big thing they have going on every month will be in the beginning. What I liked most about the atmosphere is that it reminded me a little bit of back home in Philly. In Philly they throw block parties all the time, except this one here was on a larger scale. No craziness or fighting, just good vibes all around. It’s something to do when you just want to get out of the house and have a good time without spending a bunch of money.

All of the food smelled so good it was hard for me to pick what I wanted to eat, but I wound up stopping at this food truck named Rock’ Rick’s. Let me tell y’all…THAT JAMAICAN BURGER WAS THE BOMB! I’m not even a big burger person but it was nice and juicy and messy lol. The pineapple gave it that special touch. (Peep the pics below). My daughter got a Philly Cheesesteak which was ok but I’m a tough critic on those because it’s rare that I find a place (besides my brothers’ shop) here in Dallas that makes them like back home. I’ll place a link below so you can get an idea of the prices. My total for food and drinks was $17. They do have a Café inside the museum but I wanted to try the food truck.

The other thing that I liked is inside the museum they had a section where people could create art if they wanted to or observe others making art. There were two sections that I found the most interesting. One was this display that held cards with questions and answers on it from visitors. You were to take a card and read the question, then answer it however you wanted and doodle on it too if you wanted to, and then place it on the wall for everyone to see. The other section was a display of art made by visitors and you could take a piece of art already made and replace it with the one you made. Plus it’s always interesting to see ancient artifacts and learn a little about different cultures. We explored Decorative Art, Pre-Columbian, African, Asian, and others. Seeing the Peruvian counting system was a trip. It makes you really appreciate evolution.

PREPARE TO HAVE ON WALKING SHOES! We walked around that place, up and down stairs, and thru what seemed to be a maze for a good hour AND STILL DIDN’T FINISH SEEING IT ALL. Which was fine by us because we plan to go next month. By the time we were done I was ret to go because my dogs was barkin. I think next time I won’t be takin the kiddo though cause I wanna get my drink on. None the less we all had a great time and I look forward to next month. Links below for more info…
