Project Jess: Day 1

Somewhere along the line, I’ve lost my edge…I think that in the past two years, I’ve gone through a lot…mostly this was stuff that helped me grow, but it also led me to lead a lot of things behind…to be included in this list:my love for reading, my passion for talking to and interacting with people, and my work ethic. I don’t know what the heck happened…it was like one day I was going through novel after novel, hanging out and introducing myself to folks, and working crazy hours while completing all my school work nearly perfectly and on time; and the next day I was spending a countless amount of money on books that “looked’ good, but I would never finish, being too shy to network at events, and procrastinating and turning in less than stellar projects…WHAT THE HECK!!??!?!? Clearly, I need to re-step my game up…project jessica begins!

how come i never heard this song before?

just another manic monday

really, this morning started out quite interestingly...i actually thought i was dying..having some random health issues. i know it's weird, but once i forgot about that, I actually thought today would be a pretty good day. It was super nice outside when i walked the pup, so i figured it would only get better.

anywho, it seems like people wanted to make my day more and more negative, but i've decided that im not going to let things bring me down. sidenote: please pray for my cousin and her baby...

ok. so, today i decided was going to be the day that i really take control of certain things in my life. i bought some notebooks to help me to keep track of my goals. i have a lot of them, and now that i don't really hav a sig. other that i talk to about these things, it's kind of hard for me to keep track. I got one notebook for work stuff, and one for money, career(including school), and life in plan is to write out my goals and plans for accomplishing them, then following up with writing about my progress in each kinda excited about this project.

superbowl weekend...good times

im clearly late posting this, BUT, i had the best superbowl weekend....friday night was the foreign exchange concert, so, to start the night, we went to an event that my ships had downtown at the bowling alley...i couldn't drink, since it was a delta event, but i had fun nonetheless...good times!!!

driving to the north side was interesting...we found a parking spot right next to the club...but we had a problem...The park was across the street (read:facing the opposite direction) from where my car was. So, my old roomie jumps out of the car, and goes to stand in the, usually i call her bougie, but, she was a complete and total G in this situation. This guy nearly ran her over trying to park, and she yelled at him, telling him that I was GOING to park there and that he needed to move. One word. HILARIOUS.

Concert was awesome...Black People...I haven't seen so many of us in a room listening to GOOD music in so long. the dj was great. i had fun.

Saturday...chill ship had a launch party for the black magazine that she edits for her school. i was so proud of her.

superbowl sunday...i was kinda worried about how this was gonna turn out. i had a few places to stop by, but i didn't really want to go to any of them. anywho, i skipped two places and went over to my ships...i knew it would be mostly girls, which meant it would be different from any superbowl experience i had in awhile...i had a freakin blast!!! i brought bacardi mojitos and white wine...because that's what i felt like was necessary... i got toasted and really really enjoyed the game. plus, i got to wear a shirt i had bought and never got a chance to wear...notice the pic...btw, dude was highly disturbed when he got to the house and there were only women...

...then, we stopped by the bday party of a friend of mine around the corner...then came back and enjoyed a few hands of tellin you....great weekend!!!
