Flashback Friday: Shit I Did When I was Younger

 Young, Foolish and Hilarious

In this edition of Young, Foolish and Hilarious, I wanted to take you guys back and tell you about the crazy things I thought to be true, the things I believed and the foolish things I did or came up with during my younger years. Looking back I really was young and foolish. I swear I was such a know it all and would get into arguments with people because I thought I was always right. I was such a little trouble maker and my mom definitely had her hands full when it came to taking care of me and my sister.  I decided to come up with a list of some of the craziest things that I did when I was younger. I promise this will make you laugh.

1. I would always cry for everything growing up and this would annoy the hell out of my parents. One day we were eating ice cream on the porch and it fell so I started to cry and my mother just had enough of it. She pretended to call the police because I was a cry baby. The funniest thing was there was an actual cop car on the street that pulled up and I freaked out. I ran into my room, locked the door and started screaming “I don’t want to go to jail. Mommy I won’t cry again. I promise.”

2. This one time I was playing outside and while running back to my house I ran into the screen door and my forehead started to bleed crazily. Well guys let me tell you I was done. I started to scream and run all throughout the house “I don’t wanna die!! I don’t want to die. ” To be honest the only reason why I thought I was going to die was because the night before I watched this movie and the person died from blood loss. So i thought I was going to die to because there was so much blood.

3. My mom would never buy me chapsticks or lipgloss when I was younger from Avon. So I remember I stole my friends little mermaid lip balm but I never got to use it because we moved to Trinidad like two days after.

4. The first time I had Chinese food and tasted Soy Sauce I became obsessed. So obsessed that one night I decided to sneak a pack of soy sauce to drink in bed and it spilled all over the bed. Let’s just say my mother wasn’t to happy and my bum was roasted.

5. Once I chopped off the middle of my hair in school and my mom found out because I couldn’t eat breakfast the next morning. I was and still eat a lot so she suspected something was up. I blamed it on one of the girls in my class. Thank God my mom didn’t go to the school to tell the teachers.


6. When my mom sent my sister and I to shower we wouldn’t. We would turn the shower on and just swish the water all over the walls, change into our pj’s and my mom wouldn’t know a thing.

7.  When I was younger I remember I thought poop came out of my vagina and pee my butt.

8. The first song I ever wrote (well one I could remember) was called V.I.P and yes the song had the line very important person in it. It was so corny like omg. It goes something like this “I am a V.I.P with a VIP VIP VIP I’m gonna turn around and touch the ground. You know I’m a very important person so you better shut your mouth and VIP VIP VIP.”

9. In grammar school I would never to my math homework. I remember I would never bring home the workbook and then the next day in class I would do it as the teacher gave out the answers.

Sometimes in life you just have to move on and just simply let go

I have to say that this week I have had a lot to speak on and just release and thank God for this blog because I get to share my life experiences and things that I witness with whoever reads my blog. I recently experienced something so heart wrenching that thinking about it now I feel as if the reality of the entire situation hasn’t even hit me yet. People can be so conniving  and just heartless. They never think about how their actions will affect people. I grew up with this person and to find out that this person felt this way towards me was just mind blowing. When you love people unconditionally especially family you never think to put your guard up and really pay attention to the warning signs that are flaring up right in front your eyes. I could be totally overreacting or not but when someone you look up to and love decides to shut you out of their life without any warning or without an explanation it’s heartbreaking and this has been on my mind for weeks. I have been constantly been at war with myself and over thinking  certain things. I have been asking myself what did I do wrong. I know things with everyone was shaky but woah when someone throws you a curveball like this; how are you suppose to respond? To me friendship and family is the two most important things. I wake up every morning knowing that I have these amazing people in my life and to think that I lost one of them is just crazy. The part that makes me so angry and is just frustrating is not knowing why. My motto is if I have a problem with somebody, I make sure I let them know what’s up because there is nothing like finding out you were mad at this person because of a stupid misunderstanding. It’s the worst I swear. A month has passed since I found out that this person has shut me out of their lives and let me tell you it has been hard but I’m slowly letting go and just moving on with my life. I am mature enough to know that I can’t let this affect me in anyway. I will always love that part of my family but if they don’t want me in their lives because of some unexplained reason I just have to respect it and simply go on with my life. It’s all a learning process and apart of growing up in this world. XoXo Besos❤

Hello October

tumblr_mtyskdoX3L1sw4irho1_500

 

 

Wow I can’t believe today’s October 1st, it seems like just yesterday I was embarking on a new journey in my life and now the calendar is telling me that’s it’s already October. Even though I hate the cold weather of New England, I always welcome Fall with open arms and possibilities. This fall is going to be awesome. I am finally going to my first concert to see Tori Kelly (ahhh so excited) and I’m also going to turning 22. I love the fall because for me it symbolizes just a feeling of newness and change. It probably has to do with me  celebrating my birthday every Fall.  I just feel like the Fall is my creative time. It’s a time when I get to experience so many things in a different light and also just have new experiences and also be inspired. I also love to just admire/ love all the new things that come with Fall like Fashion, Music, TV Shows,Food, Movies, People, etc. I am already loving so many new stuff that are popping up this Fall and can’t wait to share it with you guys. Til then I would love for you guys to share with me your hopes and aspirations for this Fall and also some things that you guys are into or newly discovering. Don’t be shy xoxo!
