My boyfriend is leaving :"( He's off to Western Nebraska Community College on Sunday. He's a sophomore and it is his second year there. I going to miss him so much :( We have been through sooooooooo much through this relationship and we have been on a lil break since July but I honesty can say I'm actually glad we took this break. We have got so much closer and I think that we have both realized that what we have together is so amazingly good, lol. It's still a lil hard because we still got somethings that we both need to work on but I know that we are both trying are best and in the long run everything will be worth it. Our 1 year anniversery is coming up in October. I'm so excited, lol, but we prolly wont be able to celebrate it till Thanksgiving break when he's home from school. Maybe I can talk him into to coming home earlier lol.

Best Friends...Forever :(


Man, this week has been a lil hard because it was my best friends birthday yesterday, but she is no longer here 2 celebrate it. She would have been 17. It's still so crazy, her being gone, she was murdered outside of a grad party in June 07. Shots rang out while she was outside waiting, with her bro nd boifriend, for her ride. She was shot in the head and her boifriend held her as she took her last breathe. It was unbelieveable what happened. I never thought that I would lose my best friend to gang violence. I wish she was still here. I mean this would have been our senior year at EHS, we had so much planned, we were goin to join every club, even the somali club, lol. She touched so many peoples lives, over 1000 people attended her funeral, mostly whom were teens. It's still really hard to go through life because so much has happened since she died and most days I wish I could call her and tell her tons of stuff. This school years gonna b really hard for me nd my friends but we kno that Charez is gonna be lookin down at us smilin when we walk across that stage to get our diplomas, I just wish that she could be there with us. RIP Charez L. Jones...You Are Truly Missed :"( 8-3-92 to 6-9-07


At Her Funeral

Thrift Shops??

Omg!!!!!!!!!


So I was looking at the August 09 Teen Vogue (one of my favorite magazines) and I was so inspired by all the different styles and fashion and it made me want to redo my who wardrobe, lol. Usually I just buy wat I think is cute but now I'm heading towards more of a certain style. I really like to wear sneakers and hip hop clothing but I love to be classy and rock a pair of heels every now and then. I really like the whole haute couture and runway looks that the huge designers do. Now I'm not ballin so I can't really go out buying Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Nine West, DKNY, and all of those other expensive brands. I stick more to the Baby Phat, South Pole, you know, urban affordable brands. I mean if I had the money I would def buy all the expensive designer clothing, bags, and shoes. So while I was looking threw my mag, I came across an article called Recessionistas. It talked about little rich girls and how they go to consignment stores to get all the designer clothing, shoes, and bags for good prices. Talkin bout they found a suppa cute pair of jeans for $50. Now being the hood, ain't got that much money girl that I am, lol, I was like what the heck! How does this help me in anyway!! I want the cute designer stuff for cheap too but I aint got $50 dollars to spend on a cute pair of jeans that are originally $300, I mean yea that's a good deal, but I still can't afford it. :( So I was a lil mad about that, wondering why they would put an article about saving money for girls who have tons of money rather than for girls who don't have all that much money and can't just go to daddy and ask for $100.

So 2day we went out to eat at Old Country Buffet and I decided to pay for the whole family. It cost me $41 and I was like what the heck I can't believe this cost $41 so I was like I'm so bout to get my moneys worth lol.




But anyways, lol, afterwards I asked my mom if we could look in this lil gift shop and she said yes so we looked around at all the cute lil things they were selling. As I looked around my mom said there was a consignment store near by and she asked if I wanted to go, so I was like yea, lets see if what that article said about saving money by shopping at consignment stores is true. So we walked in there and it stunk really bad, lol. My mom decided to go to Radio Shack with my dad and brothers but I decided to look around in the store. I went to the small section and started looking through the clothes and OMG IT WAS LIKE HEAVEN lol. They had supa cute shirts that pretty much all cost under $10. I was like OMG THIS IS SO CUTE! and yup it was almost all designer clothes. I was like THE ARTICLE WAS TRUE!!! lol I picked out a few things 2 try on and settled on a cute Arden B. sweater. The price tag said $7.25 so I was like ok yea thats a pretty good deal. So I went to the cash register and the lady rang up my shirt and she was like "that will be $1.86" I had to ask her to repeat the total again cause I thought I heard her wrong, lol. I swear I wanted to start screamin in the store and jumping up and down, lol, but I kept all that happiness inside lol. So I was supa hype and asked my mom if we could go check out some thrift stores. I only went to 2 stores 2day but I def am gonna hit some more up in the future.


Here's some pictures of what I got...


This is a shirt from H&M, it was $3.99 at Arc's Value Village


These are shoes by Candies for $7.99 at Arc's Value Village


This is a Arden B. sweater for $1.86 at Turn Style
The uner shirt is also by Arden B.

Now idk bout yall but I thnk I got some pretty good deals. Would you ever go to and shop at a thrift shop or consignment store??

Just Friends...


So yesterday I went to the movies with my fake boyfriend, lol (it's a inside joke). He's moving to Arizona on Wednesday for college. We saw Public Enemies. This movie was too good, it's about the notorious American gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a booming crime wave in the 1930s. It stars Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, is 2 hours and 20 minutes, and it's rated R for gangster violence and some language, but it really isn't that bad, not very sure why it is rated R because the "ganster violenece" (lol) wasn't all that bad, like all they did was shoot at each other lol. But no, I really liked this movie and so did my fake boyfriend, lol. I would def recommend it to every one.
Has anyone else seen this movie and what did you think about it. Or is anyone thanking about seeing it??

(not the cutest pic of us, lol)

So anywayz, back to me and my fake boyfriend, lol. I've known him for almost 3 years (I think it will be 4 years soon lol) and at one point in our friendship we did go out, but it didn't really work out so we just decided to be friends, but we've always had that, i guess connection between us, and have always talked about getting back 2gether. This summer was a pretty good summer for us, I think we got a lot closer, but now he's off to college in Arizona. I'm pretty sad about the whole situation cause it's like "dang we just started developin a really close relationship" but part of me is just koo wit being friends, I mean I do have a boyfriend who I love more than anything in this world and yea I do love my fake boyfriend but it's not the same, it's more like a friendly love lol. Idk, we're def gonna stay in contact and hang out when he's home, so I think for now we're gonna stay just friends. Who knows, maybe in the future we'll be more than just friends tho, :) lol.
