Soul Spew

Hi. I'm B. If my 23 year old soul projectile vomited into the universe, this is what it would look like.

This post is not really relevant or deep, but read it anyway, it may make you laugh. Or think me crazy. Whaddevs.

I must say I miss writing. Just for fun, or even seriously. I never write any more, not even about anything, and it feels like a part of me is missing (as if one could get any more cliché than this writing-is-my-release malarkey, haaa). And for this reason, I have decided to force myself to write….

omg you are so sweet, like why???*crying*

Thanks for tagging wonderful ladies etherealreality and drifter-nomad .  This is excellent in enabling my procrastination. This is also the first time I have tagged people in a Tumblr posts. That was not part of my Six Facts About Me tag. Okay. Here we go.

1. I guess if you know me you know this, but it still stands as a fact: writing is me. As in it’s not something I do, it is inextricable with me. Whether I am good at it or not, isn’t as important as the fact that I love it and have done it since I could. I write every day- whether it be a poem, a song, part of a novel/story, a script, or a blog post that will never see the light of day. Makes me cry , brings me joy. Makes me feel unconquerable, makes me feel inadequate , it is frustrating and it is my release. I am not me without it.  I thank God for it.  Like the most passionate and fiery relationship, with the deepest love.  It is the Chuck to my Blair. 

2. Speaking of: American teen dramas helped bring me up and are the reason I can sometimes sound like a weird posh black valley girl. Sorry, not sorry. I went to a tiny private girls school and essentially had no social life, so I lived vicariously through them and yes it was very sad but also kind of really great. I think weirdly being immersed in a world that was not my own helped mould my brain further into being a storyteller.(I think??????? idk???)

3. I cry once a week.  At least. 

4.I really really really love my job- in TV comedy. It’s a dream. Which is really great because I quit my last job to chase my dreams. Faith, knowledge of self and audacity are so important when it comes to happiness. Hate to quote Drake (just kidding I obviously love it) “know yourself know your worth” .

……

Which actually is a dumb quote because I feel like anyone could have said that. In fact I am pretty sure I said that before Drake ever did. I feel like Drake stalked my Twitter timeline. Drizzy, papi, how come you stalk but no follow bae?

5. I vacillate between being “ditzy” and “deep”- not on purpose, but because I don’t know how to be any other way. I love the silly and the witty. I love Junot Diaz and I like The Kardashians. I love The New Yorker (in particular the SHouts&Murmers section) and I will discuss Karrueche and Chris. I love pop culture, and I love culture, and I feel like those who think the two are mutually exclusive are narrow minded, dull and myopic.  On the flip side I kind of enjoy it when people think I am shallow because it is so much fun making them shut the eff up using long words.

6. I am a romantic. Big time. As in “When Harry Met Sally Is My Favourite Movie” big time. In that I once had a three email correspondence with a guy and thought “omg it’s just like You’ve Got Mail”. In that I wish Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan were a real couple, and the bookshelf scene in “Brown Sugar” always gets me. In that why couldn’t Julia roberts and Dermot Mulroney just ended up together because that ring/finger  scene in “My Best Friend’s Wedding ” was so fucking hot. As in my parents were childhood sweethearts.

However, I also was brought up by a badass, formidable, beautiful “bow down bishes” Queen of a lady, who  taught me confidence and self-worth, and wisdom with regards to matter of the heart. As much as I am a romantic, I also have a brain I don’t lose when I am into someone. I don’t take bullshit. I swoon standing up, because when you’re lying down it’s easy for a guy to walk all over you.Even if he doesn’t mean to. 

And dasssit! I nominate elusiveessence sharwilson timoano. Hey ladies: if you’re into it, get into it. X
