love, my work

heartbreak á la baby girl

I’d write you a 4 Page Letter, but I know you wouldn’t read it.

You’re At Your Best when no ones around, why keep us a secret?

Constantly fight, then Rock the Boat, I really can’t take this Back and Forth.

I’m giving you a 1 in a Million love, and you still just want 2 have fun.

Vlogmas

Hey all!

I decided to participate in Vlogmas on YoutTube. I am going to post a vlog everyday until Xmas. It seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Plus, I get to leave my comfort zone a bit and try something new. Trying new things will help me grow, plus kick all my fears and doubt in the butt!

Take a look at yesterday’s vlog, in which I speak about not letting negative experiences and the past get in your way of living your life.

Be sure to subscribe if you would like to watch the rest of my vlogs and shenanigans this month!

My Feature on “20SomethingsBlog”

Hey all!

I was featured on the “Twenty Somethings Blog.” This awesome blog shares news and stories about men and women in their twenties. What I like most about it is the features of people in their twenties.Occasionally, the blog features posts that are written by 20somethings. The world feels ever so slightly lonely when I am reminded I am not the only one trying to manage my 20s.

I shared my experience as a 20something thus far and my advice for others starting a career in this economy. Be sure to check out my feature! I am grateful I got the opportunity to share a bit of my story on the site.

Thanks for all the support!

Day 7 of #30Layers30Days: Sapiosexual

Sapiosexual: One who is attracted to or aroused by intelligence in others.

I could care less by flashy materials, money, or “followers” a person has.

Sweetie, tell me your goals and passions and you have my attention.

Speak of your drive and your attempts of success and I’m all ears.

A man who is motivated and passionate is thee most attractive man in my opinion.

I go weak in the knees for a man who speaks of his dreams.

And don’t just tell me the dream…

Tell me your plans to getting there.

Intelligence and focus are some of the sexiest traits one can possess.

Baby, you are making me weak with all your smart talk.

Make love to my mind and the rest is all yours…

#30layers30days: Day 2: I Want to Be

I Want to Be…

I want to be a voice for those who have small voices yet have BIG things to say.

I want to be a voice for those that have grand ideas but may be too afraid of vulnerability. Being the voice for those who have never felt like the majority. The minority that has never quite fit in. For those who are used to being the outsider and feel like there is no other way.

I want to be the voice for those who have so many random and eclectic interests. I want to be the voice for those who enjoy being different. The voice for those who celebrate and rejoice in our individuality. The voice for those who defy social norms and have fun doing it.

I want to be the voice that can tell those same people that they are not alone. I want to use my voice so others can be influenced to find the courage to use theirs. It is scary and revealing but it feels oh so good. Don’t worry how others will judge you or may misinterpret. Just be true to yourself and the rest shall follow.

#30layers30days: Day 1: I Am…

I am…

I am Stephanie.

I am two races in one body.

I am a quiet girl with a tumultuous soul.

I am always thinking, calculating, dreaming…

I am a little bit mad, but that’s what drives me.

I am a product of a harsh environment yet still filled with love.

I am choosing happiness for now and for always.

I am a person constantly evolving.

I am not perfect,

and I am coming to terms with that.

I am beautifully flawed.

I am living my life on my own terms.

I Know What Happens to a Dream Deferred

I used to be so afraid to share my writing. So I have had private journals to myself my whole life. But lately I’ve been feeling more brave to share with the world what I love to do; to write. I’m in love with words, and what they can mean, how they can make you feel, etc. I’m a sucker for a well-written poem, prose, article, essay, hell…even a tweet. My love affair with words is one I can no longer keep to myself!

Months ago, I wrote what I interpret to occur when a dream is deferred. This is what I believe happens to the creative/ innovative/ passionate soul that doesn’t get to fulfill it’s dream:

“What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up

Like a raisin in the sun?”

‘A Dream Deferred’ by Langston Hughes

What happens to the creative mind that craves some sort of release…

Yet, the only thing holding her back is…herself?

Words, visions, and ideas float in her cranium until she feels full but never does she allow herself to let it out. To express herself.

So what happens to the soul that can never truly achieve peace because it’s afraid?

What happens to the coward that has the ability to create but simply chooses not to? Does the dream truly dry up in the sun, like Mr. Langston Hughes suggested?

I need to know the answer because the guilt, the shame, the pent up emotions are driving me insane. What happens when she has a hard time betting on herself and can’t possibly expect others to bet on her too?

I suppose nothing. The world goes unchanged, never getting a chance to experience her art.

But the dream doesn’t dry up…it stays there, in her head, in her heart, gnawing at her until she goes mad…which will be when it’s too big to ignore.

It’s too big to ignore. Here you go world…
