'They say, 'Oh you graduated?' No, I decided I was finished'-Kayne West

Im all for higher education....
I believe we should all recieve some form of it, be it street,self,Harvard,etc...
But I also dont believe its for everyone(including myself).

Why do you need to study to be a writer?or a painter?
Why do you need to pay someone to teach you how to be creative?
Isnt it something you naturally have?
Why the french am I paying you to tell me my writing is(or isnt) any good?

I believe college is great for certain professions....lawyer,doctor,accountant,teacher...
Trust I make sure my Dr.has MD after her name and is license in the state of Ohio.

But for those of us who live for the arts...
It may not be our bag,
I know it isnt mine.
In the past few months Ive been talking to someone who has been giving me a bit of a push to get out of the fantasies that I have to go to college.
He has inspired me to be who I am,and do what I want to do.
As much as our alternative lifestyles and plans hurt our parents,
We have to do whats right for ourselves...
I would often tell him the things I inspired to do,and his replied were simply
"Do it","Get er done",or "So why havent you done it?"
Simple,huh?
Which had me thinking.....Why havent I done it?
He is fairly bright,can do whatever he set his mind to.
Was stressing himself attending college,barber school and holding a fulltime job in corp America.....

One day he woke up....
And decieded he was finished with college...
Did he graduate?
Cross the stage in a gown and silly hat?
Not in the least bit,
Its not that he didnt have a plan,
He finished barber school,and is now doing something he loves.....He still works for corp America(he isnt stupid,he knows where his health insurance is!,lmao!)

So I dont completely feel bad for not even wanting to finish,
Yea I will still write,give my thoughts on business,maybe occassionally take a interesting college class.....Because thats who I am,
But i know who I am,
What im capable of( and what Im not most importantly....)
Yea it gets me upset some days when people come into my job and ask what Ive been up to,or what school I went to....
But I finally have a plan....

Which is my next probblem...
The funding.....


To be continued....

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

The Normal Ones...

So of course every good blogger has these super glam photos posted on their blogs and IG. Like they look like they literally "woke up like this".... So if you know me, the glam thing you know that is a super stretch.. I'm normal at this point in life, I prefer leggings, Jordans and hoodie every chance I get... I have served my time in the club in 5-6 inch heels with the dresses short enough for my niece to wear. So when I sat down with my good friend, Chaz about doing photos for my blog I know I was probably every photographers nightmare. No, like seriously.... She asked about my ideas for my shoot, my visions, and I had nothing.. I mean I'm not a model? I like cookies too much....My 'sexy face' looks like I have something in my eye,lol So I did my own make up (scary, I know), Wore two of my favorite items; a denim shirt from Torrid (that my boobs are apparently too big for), and a tulle skirt from Zellie For She, And sat in front of the ca

Size and the standard of beauty ;The little girl in the pink jumper

So lately I've been battling with some deamons as far as my appearance..... As a bigger girl I have learned what can make or break you in terms of beauty..... Yet I still find it shocking when people find me attractive.I'm very shy,and often it hard to believe that people find me beautiful......I always resort back to moments of my childhood.... Picture this..... A chubby bubbly lite skin girl with braids and barettes in a pink and white shirt,deniem jumper,white socks,and pink/white nikes(eh I was a 90's kid) comes to her desk and sees a note.... "Dear Ashlei Will you be my girlfriend?" The little girl looks over to the most popular boy in class,who happens to be smiling at her from ear to ear.The youg girl sends a note back,"Yes"backwards "s" and all....Later on that day as the children file out of their lines for recess,the girls on one side stepping,playing house,and the boys on the other wresling,playing football,etc.....A yung ma
