2:59 AM

I remember late nights when they meant freedom.  
My kind of excitment was walking and feeling the cool, brisk air. 
There was always a hint of hope and the night sky was a never-ending blanket of souls.

The stars had secrets to hold,
As I always have secrets to tell. 

Godspeed, I would say alone
Because six feet under could happen at anytime.
That's a bit of pessimissim sprinkled with honesty.

Move on.

The sea of darkness was alive,
Just barely illuminated with street lights. 
I had a home in the black, but I always chose your front door. 

Can you feel yourself change when you grow?
Can you say your heart thinks just like mine?
And if I decided to send a raven would I send it towards a haven or hell?
Who could tell?

See, my definitions lack your kind of taste.
That's why they're mine.

I know what I'm putting myself through
And though this is not a fight I will have war.


We are the same.

school talk

Hey everyone! So I'm sure you all must be extremely curious about me starting school, so let me tell you all about it :)

I've already completed a full week of school and honestly, it has been one if the best experiences of my life. All the people in my class are really nice and we all mesh well. It wasn't hard to make friends which I'm surprised about but I wouldn't have it any other way. We started out the week learning about bacteria and desinfectants. Then we moved on to manicures and pedicures. And on Friday I got my first lesson in waxing. No one would let me wax their eyebrows because I've never worked with wax before but after a while this woman named Kelly put her faith in me and let me handle her unibrow. I was so excited. The process went smoothly and next thing I know people were lining up to get there brows done! It was such a good feeling. I finally feel my life truly coming together. I love waking up and getting ready for school. I love beauty school just in general!

There's a lot more I can tell you guys but I'm blogging from my phone right now so I'm trying to keep this brief. My next post will show you guys everything I got in my beauty school kit. It's the best haul ever.

Thanks for reading :D

simple green look

Hey everybody! So I realized I haven't played around with the color green much so I decided to use a green eyeshadow for this look :) It's a simple, quick look that I came up with and I hope you like it!

Like my Facebook page to keep yourself updated!

This look was just a spur of the moment kind of thing. I wanted to keep the color on the lid and wing it out like a cat eye. After applying the eyeshadow I outlined it with gel liner, added mascara and that's it! The dots by the eyebrow are just something I stole from Kandee Johnson. If you click on her name it'll take you to a video showing you how she does it. It's pretty simple and easy. I only add the dots to one side of my face, I guess I just like things to be asymmetrical sometimes :)

As for what I've been doing lately...

NOTHING. Haha, really though I haven't done much at all. I start beauty school tomorrow though and I'm pretty excited about it. I went to my orientation on Thursday and it was great. Everyone seems really awesome and I can't wait to get started! Hopefully this will be the chance I needed to start making girlfriends, ha. The funny thing about that though is there's one guy who was in our orientation group, he used to be a mechanic or something of the sort and happened to injure himself and was looking for a career change, so he chose beauty school. Deej and I were talking about how instead of making new girlfriends I'll end up befriending the one guy there and fail miserablly at trying to make gal pals, hahahaha. But only time will tell!

I've also been doing some reading lately. Off and on I've been reading A Game of Thrones.

I'm almost done with it, I just don't stay consistent with my reading but it doesn't make it any less of a great book. I have the first four books in paperback, I want to get all five books in hardcover though. This book has gotten beat up because I've been taking it everywhere with me. Poor book :(

lustful notes

The day after tomorrow he writes to me:
My sweetest love of mine, I'm sorry about the things I said.
The pain will pass in time.
A single sentence was all he wrote but then he writes again:
My sweetest love I have to say I'm sorry it's hard to mend.

The writing stops but his eyes still speak:
My sweetest, my love no more.
My eyes speak softly matching his, it's you I still adore.

The twinkled drop upon my cheek he dried without a sound.
That final word he says to me:
And then left town.

One more note he writes to me,
The ink splattered from his pen.
And red blood drops besides the words:
I'm sorry, lets just be friends.

This is one of my earlier poems. I hope you enjoyed. Leave feedback!
