Quickie Post: Tomorrow Will Be Better

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself, or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”

— Wayne Dyer

Sometimes you have to do yourself a favor and pull yourself out of your own downward spiral…so here I go.

Let’s make this a great Thursday y’all!

True Life : My Boss is a Piece of Sh*t

bianca punch

This post has been a long time coming but as the end of the school year approaches and major changes in my life occur I need to vent.

I have never EVER in my life worked under such poor leadership. It is disgusting. I come to work dreading what the day will bring. He is literally one of the WORST individuals I have ever met. Maybe he’s just mad because he’s bald and has a terribly shaped head while my students compliment my waves?? He is mean, condescending, and frankly he hates black people. SURPRISE! He is black. While this is a bold statement, I need to point out that both black males have been pushed to the end and will not be returning next year. He blatantly gave me a low review DESPITE my glowing observations from other administration and staff.

Think of the worst curse word… and he is that. I’ll go with cunt. He is a CUNT. (Sorry y’all but i’m irate.)

Every time I see his Uncle Tom acting ass I want to rip the garbage picker from his hands and snap it over his head. Negro no one is asking for a handout but your blatant racism of your OWN RACE is shameful. Oh and you don’t think you are better than me. Lets compare degrees bitch. Can you send an email without saying “on tomorrow” ? Yeah probably not slut. Oh just you wait because we all know karma is a BITCH.

I am actually good at what I do. I have managed to walk into terrible programs and actually make students excited and have good results. Am I unconventional? Absolutely. I sometimes fake that I am a lazy teacher but honestly my students work every day for the full time. I’ve shown ONE movie this year and that was the day before Spring Break when I had it OFFICIALLY with my administrator fuck shit. Shutout to the teacher of the year that stays on Youtube and has students on their laptops everyday! QUALITY TEACHING!

Let it be known that you will NEVER run a successful school, business, hell ANYTHING by bullying your employees and making them feel small. What NC doesn’t need is to have more good teachers leave the field. In this school alone the turnover is disgusting. Four have left since the new year? WHAT?! I gave up on teaching this year. I have vowed to myself to never return in a classroom again. It is no longer worth it. So Friday I meet with human resources…Let’s all say a prayer that I don’t flip tables and throw chairs….No promises y’all….

So here’s to hoping my principal drinks bleach. CHEERS!

Quickie Post: Optimistic

Hey people.

Just another quickie post for you all.  Today has been a good day for me and I’m starting to feel like my life in Atlanta is taking shape.  Things definitely get tough but as long as you are doing your best and taking the right steps, things do work out.

To celebrate that, I thought I’d give you all a song I listen to when I need encouragement.

Don’t give up and keep going for your dreams.

 

 

Bad week? Sometimes you have to use your Grandmomma’s remedy.

Listen. This has been a terrible week for me.

Doctor-Who-In-The-Rain

It’s so easy to stay down and trust me i’ve done a lot of laying around being depressed this week/weekend. LUCKILY my Grandma AND Mom (well my whole family)  taught me that when you have no where to turn…there is always Jesus. So i’m staying prayed up today.

I just need to give Tamela Mann the respect she deserves.

My. God.

If she never records another song again…it is okay because “Take Me To The King” ministers to my soul. Every time she sings “Truth is i’m tired”, I have to stop the song and let those words set in.

Want to see a grown man cry and raise his hand in praise in worship? Just play this song and I will weep like a baby. I’m tearing up as I type this. So here is Tamela Mann. God is working through her. Go buy the song. Don’t illegally download but PURCHASE. WWJD? I’ll tell you what he’d do, buy several copies because the song is just worthy of all the praise.

This specific performance has me running around my apartment. Watch the whole thing.

Hope you all have had a beautiful Sunday! Stay blessed y’all!!!!

A Moment of Encouragement

Y’all already know how we feel about Real Talk Kim.

It’s only Monday and it’s looking like it will be a long week. I was ready to throw in the towel and plotting my sick day for later in the week. I started writing my post for tomorrow when this popped across my Facebook timeline and I just had to share.

“Some of you are ready to give up…. Stay encouraged & remember – God is working for you tonight! Heaven is holding conversation about you… Angels have been assigned to you! Be at peace!!!”

Yes. God.

Celebration

Hey People!  I’m sorry that I missed posting yesterday but I was flying down the Atlanta in hopes of being adopted by Tyler Perry.

While I’m not financially supported by Madea’s wigs, I was able to find a new job!

The past few weeks have been one issue after another.  From my car being towed and having get all new tires and lost cards.  It’s been a battle to keep up with all the moving parts of my life but since when did anyone say life was easy??

But a lesson that I learned long ago in the church was that God never puts more on you than you can bear.  And while religion may not as big a part of my life, that is a lesson that I’ve never forgotten.

You have the inner strength to make it through anything. 

You can do anything you set your mind to.

You is SMART, KIND, AND IMPORTANT!

Okay sorry, I got carried away.  But the core of the message here is that you can be happy.  You deserve to be happy.  Don’t sit around waiting for happiness to come to you though.  Do the best you can to find a way to something new.

Now, let the music play!

“I don’t keep up with Joneses, I am the Joneses.” – Nene Leakes

Linnethea Monique Leakes (Nene Leakes) is a real housewife of Atlanta and one of my Queens. Now before you roll your eyes and stop reading give this a chance! Nene has a humble beginning: small town girl, stripped to pay the bills (bandz made her dance! Ayeeeee!), married rich, became a real housewife, became an actual actress outside of reality TV, saved her marriage, and managed to not make a name for herself merely by hopping on different trashy reality shows and fighting with people. Now yes, she can be loud but she keeps it real.  She described herself perfect; “Let me get you to understand I don’t bully anybody. I stand up for what I believe in and I’m very honest and I always tell the truth. I’m not a liar, I’m not manipulative and I don’t stab you in your back because I will stab you in your chest.”

So here are 5 life lessons that Nene has taught us.

1)   “Close ya legs to married men!” But really. It’s 2014. These trollops have GOT to stop sleeping around with married men, women, or both(didn’t want to leave anyone out). Just don’t do it. While I’m parked right here, all those cheaters in general, go somewhere else with that. Until you do right, your life will never be right. OKAY?! (snaps fingers in Z formation)

2)   “You touch me girl, I will wear that wig off your head. A straight hooker. Andy, I’m gonna respect you and let you do this interview next to this trashbox. Trashy hooker. Go on.” – Listen, sometimes you need to check someone and let him or her know what time it is. I try to remain calm, cool, and collected at all times. The problem is that it tricks people into thinking you are weak and they can walk all over you. No ma’am, not today or EVER! God gave of mouths, voices, words, and opinions. USE THEM (Wisely. You probably don’t want to pop off at the president of your company or Oprah). Don’t let anyone steal your shine.

3)   “I’m just not into trying to convince people to like me. I always say to myself, ‘It is what it is.’ I walk into a situation knowing that people are either going to love me or they’re going to love me or they’re not, and that’s OK. I’m just going to be me. You can’t be everything to everyone.”  Y’all I just ran around my room in praise in worship. Not everyone is going to like you in life. Point. Blank. Period. Don’t stress over it and REALLY take the time to appreciate those people that love you for YOU! Can I get an amen from the choir? It’s one of those lessons that people learn in their own time, but once you learn it your REAL friendships become stronger.

 4)   “I think that everyone is saying all kinds of things about ’rich.’ Not only am I rich from doing some of the things I’ve been able to do, but I’m rich in spirit. I’m rich in health. I’m rich in every possible way.”  I’m just as guilty as everyone in believing that while money can’t buy happiness, it surely can buy you a crap ton of things (or at least pay off my car and student loans). If someone put a million dollars in your bank account today, TRY and tell me that after you body rolled, whipped your hair, and popped your booty, you wouldn’t be ten times happier! That being said, while we all wait for this money to magically appear, we do need to begin shifting our focus to the richness in life that we have. Yes, it is hard to believe that we are rich in life every time an agent from our student loan providers calls wanting more money that we CLEARLY don’t have, BUT at least we are alive to receive that phone call, right?!

 5)   “I am here now because I am supposed to be here. And I guess when it is my time to cross over there, I will be over there. I am not religious, but I am spiritual, honey. My day is coming!” Be Patient. Be Daring. Be Bold. Be Great. Know that nothing in life lasts forever, so if you’re going through something, it has to end. What we can’t do is kick are feet back, eat Ben and Jerrys Milk and Cookies Ice Cream (GET INTO THIS FLAVOR THO! Thank us later), and expect life to change in the way we want it. Hard work is always rewarded at SOME point in life. If you’re really feeling down and out ask yourself, what would Beyonce do? Oh you know, Perform at the Presidents inauguration, Perform at the Superbowl, wake innocent people up early in the morning for a PEPSI COMMERCIAL (still pressed about it), go on a sold out world tour, be a wife, raise a child, OH and record a flawless album with accompanying videos (Girl WHAT and HOW?). Stan moment over but really….go and be GREAT y’all!
