When Confessing Turns Deadly

Okay I know we all remember #hurtbae, you know the video where the guy confesses to cheating and the girl just looks so hurt and they have that corny ass music playing in the background making the sit down super dramatic and sad.

Well since then there’s been a ton of parodies of the video and I just had to share what would happen if #hurtbae turned into #crazybae

[Podcast] Stage 30 Talks about Work & Dating.

Su & Tray are back again speaking some real shit. Going into this podcast, “The First Date,” I was expecting that to be the starting conversation but child let me tell you, they brought up having a degree and finding work. That’s what really caught my attention. When it comes to looking for work your degree does not guarantee you’ll get the job you want. I went to school for journalism and child development and have yet to find a job in those fields.

When I finished college I was pregnant and working at Nike. Once I went on leave I told myself I could not go back to retail and I didn’t. My plan was to go back to work in 6 months and I felt like it wasn’t going to happen for me because I couldn’t find a job. Well, the Lord blessed me because a recruiter found my resume (a super old one) and I ended up with a job with 2 weeks of that call. I’ve been at this job for almost 2 years now and I started out making more than I’ve ever made working retail. I am getting to a point where I want to move on to a new company and one closer to home and I’m finding it to be extremely difficult. Working in the entertainment/movie field gave me an idea of what I wanted to do and I ended up getting an interview ( actually 4 interviews) with Netflix only to be told I did not get the position. It definitely discouraged me. I also find myself looking at positions telling myself nope don’t want to do this, don’t want to do that. I’ve turned down interviews and positions because I felt I could have found better but little do I know I could have grown in those positions. I believe a lot of people can relate to the struggles of finding work and having a degree, so thank you Su & Tray for sharing your stories.

Music That Touches My Soul

Music always tells a story that many of us can’t tell. Some of those lyrics touch some of us more than others. This is one of those songs for me.

Sinead Harnett – If You Let Me ft. GRADES

Hurts me the most when I wake
I fumble and twist, ’til the truth starts to click
There’s so much space in this bed
These sheets go for miles: dreams of your smile

I don’t wanna be just a memory
And I don’t wanna feel your wings break free
Because without you I’m lost in the breeze
I gotta be strong now, I gotta show you how
I’ll love you like I’ve never, ever loved somebody
I’ll give you things you didn’t even know you wanted
Don’t tell me that it’s not enough
My time is up, you’re over us
‘Cause I think I might do anything for you
If you just let me

Screen-Shot-2015-01-13-at-10.32.29-AM

This morning Safaree stopped by Power 105.1FM to open up about his relationship and break up with Nicki Minaj. For years he stayed in the background being treated like a hype man instead of the popular rapper’s man. While it seems as if Safaree has had enough of his ex woman calling him corny on twitter and IG. After all she wasn’t doing all this talking until after she seen him moving on.
