It’s FRIDAY!!!! After a ridiculously long week (that is NOT over), here are 5 things that I am ABSOLUTELY grateful for.

1)   Girl Scout Cookies.

My lunch yesterday consisted of Girl Scout Cookies. They are a blessing that rolls around once a year. As I type this my mouth is watering but I’m on a 16 hour intermittent fast, and these cookies are not an option today. If you say you don’t like Girl Scout cookies, your whole entire life is a lie.  Yes, you can buy knock offs at the grocery store, but it literally is not the same thing! (Okay it kind of is but you know what I mean.)

2)   This here blog!

It provides a welcome distraction from daily work life. It reminds me to dream big. It also prevents me from taking naps during my planning period. Watching it grow is super fun! So yay to all you new readers and followers! You’ve made this week DaBomb.com (It’s time to bring that saying back y’all.)

3)   This Song

FINE it’s not the newest but…Beyonce “officially” released it and I wouldn’t be Class if I didn’t acknowledge all that the Queen does. Driver roll up the partition PLEASE!

4)   My mother

I am the ultimate Momma’s Boy. I’m proud of this fact. Not only do I look like my mother but also we are the same person at the core. When in the midst of a terrible week, she knows just the right words to say. Need to throw shade at a particular situation? She has mastered the art of throwing shade with a smile that will have you dying of laughter (if you aren’t the recipient of the shade that is)Sure we have argued and I was a snobby teenager BUT she is the reason I want to be great. Can a brotha just build his Mom her dream home? ::sappy moment over::

5) Chicken

Chicken is there when no one else is. It tastes good. It’s affordable. You can prepare it anyway you want. You need a late night snack? Chicken. Don’t know what to have for dinner? Chicken. What goes great on top of pizza? Barbecued….chicken. Thank you chicken for all you do and your nourishment. Too often we forget to give you praise.

Now here are some things that can kindly go away next week…

1)  My dang job.

No it’s not the children (all the time). It’s the paperwork, the bad parents, and the administration. BYE. ASHY. Teach your teachers right education department

2)   Not sleeping

So I work all day, have students stay with me after school to practice, have a 3 hour rehearsal for a show I’m in, and then get home around 10pm These 10+ hour days have got to stop. I’m EXHAUSTED!

3)   The last week of the month budget.

I just…. Never have money the last week. The ONLY cool thing about being broke is that you get to be SUPER inventive in the kitchen. Besides that, Being broke can GTFOH.

4)   Colored Contacts

Y’all, we know that is not your natural eye color. Stop. It.

ByeAshy

5)    Blatant Lies

Just live in your reality. That’s all. I’m tired of scrolling and reading about the 19 miles you ran knowing good and well that you were taking a nap. Or knowing you spent your whole life in New Jersey but you’re claiming to have lived your entire life in London. We know what you’re doing.

So what are some of you highlights and lowlights of this week?! Let us know! Comment below or follow us on the twiiter! (@ClassNTrashShow)

Love ya for reading!

Bloop

The Supreme Diva. The VOICE. Whitney Houston.

Two years y’all. It’s STILL not real to me but we can’t continue on the day without giving Whitney a shout-out. She is the gold standard. No matter HOW great an artist of today is or will be, Whitney will ALWAYS be better. Many have come close, but she remains untouchable. We DO know that she’s up in Heaven showing OUT in the choir! So here are few of my all-time favorite Whitney Houston moments.

1) THIS. PERFORMANCE. It’s a cool 10:00 long but if you have the time, you won’t regret it. This is how you perform: a band, a stunning dress, and a microphone. This is how you control your voice. This is how you sing with an emotion. This is how you perform without just belting or shouting in a microphone. Her tone is crystal freaking clear.

2) Another live performance that needs to be mentioned. I would DIE if she ever told me to “Shoop” with her. The important parts of this video is the tender moment with her daughter and Monica. Sometimes we forget that Monica can BLOW and Whitney approved.

3) Carrie Underwood, we’ll let you finish BUT Whitney and Brandy had the BEST made for TV Movie-Musical. HANDS. DOWN. You might even be able to find the whole movie online if you search….. 😉

5) This.

6) BET Awards Tribute

Now BET mostly gets it wrong. That award show can be very embarrassing to watch. After the Michael Jackson tribute, I think we were all worried at the what they would throw together for Ms. Houston.  When I say that they got this tribute all the way right? Monica and Brandy came to snatch wigs. And Cissy….okay…I had to stop because tears were welling up. (This wasn’t about hitting the right notes so don’t even come for Momma.

Whitney is, was, and will continue to be music to me. It just doesn’t get better. We miss and love you Nippy!!!!

What are some your favorite Whitney moments?
