Before I begin my rant, I’d like to pay homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and though I do not know every detail of his being or the names of the methods he used to affect the racial issues of this country, I without a doubt recognize the impact he had. I believe that he deserves that respect and even if I have any criticisms about him or his teachings, I cannot deny the credit that must be paid to him. With that said, I’ll move along into some of my dreams:
I have a dream that one day, my vagina will not be the reason for the existence of things like the glass ceiling. I have a dream that the men of my race will stop saying that they are men and demanding respect that they do not deserve when they are nowhere to be found. It’s sad that in my mind, the standard family comes with the father sold separately. I have a dream that women, with emphasis on those of color, will stop completely objectifying themselves. I have a dream that women will stop tearing each other down not only for the simple fact that it’s malicious and unnecessary but also because we will never truly harness the power we hold because of that vicious nature. I have a dream that topics like #youknowshesahoeif, #hoodhoes, and #dontwife would stop trending on twitter. I have a dream that people would stop saying things like “if you knew better, you’d do better” because when we get right down to it, most of us know better but choose for whatever reason not to do so ,therefore we shine light on our own delinquency and stupidity. I have a dream that homelessness and starvation will become a thing of the past; there’s so much over consumption that this shouldn’t even be a dream but a reality. I have a dream that we will all hold hands and sing kumbayah, LOL, not really but I’m just recognizing the pattern at which this post is going. I know that it sounds as if I’m preaching and that I dream of a perfect world but that’s not really my point. I dream simply of a better society and a better world, not perfect, just better. I don’t expect perfection but I want to believe in having expectations again because as of late, the more I learn about this world the lower I place my expectations and currently they lay below zero. That’s not okay.
These are just some of my dreams but I try to bring them to fruition by trying to be the change I want to see instead of criticising and complaining, and hopefully inspire through example and action. I’m not perfect. I’m just a dreamer.

Post from Dear-Whoever.com. Good blog. Great post. I couldn’t help shining some light on this article because it seems like my generation is Lost In The World when it comes to relationships and how to treat each other. I feel like standards and respect are merely myths now and that’s unacceptable, at least to me.

German inventors have developed a new material which holds the promise of replacing everything plastic with something as natural as wood. The material in question is called the Arboform. It is produced after combining lignin, a discarded element of regular wood with natural resins, flax and fiber.
Apparently it can be molded into any shape. I’m def feeling this watch below so it has my vote! All Wood Everything -_- AYYEE! lol
I may be late but it’s only because I choose to be on such things. Whenever I hear my peers ranting about stupid people I ignore it, because if it’s ONE THING i can’t stand beside liars, are ignorant people. Im not talking about the average person who is just uninformed or misinformed but is still open to discussion, nooo nooo it’s the type of ignorant people who are set in their ways; the people who either have no facts or half the story (sometimes that story is pure opinion but to them its all the same) and refuse to hear truth.
Yesterday when I went to pay one of my best friends a farewell visit before she found her way back to Boston College, she took it upon herself to introduce me to Glen Beck and his brigade of retards. I don’t like that I’m calling these people out of their names, because I definitely do not know them, however they have a level of ignorance that I cannot bear. I’ll be the first one to let you know that I do not know everything nor am I as up-to-date with politics and current affairs as I’d like to be. BUT you would neeeevvvveeeerrrr catch me rallying and protesting for a reason I’m not entirely too sure of. If I’m holding a picket sign, BEST BELIEVE I’ve done my research and would be able to attest to them. From the mosque situation to these…to these…i don’t even know what to call them, there are nooooo words that fully expresses the depth of their stupidity. Seriously, if you are asked the basic question “Why are you protesting?” at least be able to give a plausible answer; ITS NOT A TRICK QUESTION! I PROMISE.
Drake is ruling the airwaves, among a few other newcomers and I’m lovin’ it. Though it gets annoying, I won’t deny talent. The following audio is an old song that I just discovered called “What if I kissed you?” and it just reminded me that Drake’s success didn’t come overnight. He’s made a lot of good songs that haven’t been commercially released. So here’s to you Drizzy and like Jay-Z said, you’re up next, let’s see watchu do with it.
