Man Bloggers, I know I've been away for awhile but I've been busy. I've been trying to strengthen my relationship with my Heavenly Father. Now..this is probably the hardest things to do but the easiest thing to say okay..I'm ready. It takes commitment and a whole lot of discipline.
Recently, my love reminded me of just how important my relationship with God is. So I decided to change a couple of things in my life--just as a start. One of the things was to stop cursing...and well folks as you can imagine its been hard, because you know a curse work can just really get that angry point across lol.

I've been contemplating the idea of a tattoo for years now. First it was a ladybug and then it was a "do good work." both tributes to my parents, and though i still love them dearly i think i want to pay tribute to my Eternal Father. So as of right now I think I'm going to stick with the Christian Fish. That symbol says so much to me. Its going to be small and inconspicuous, as am i. but it'll be there.

While perusing the Internet looking for a suitable tattoo for my foot, i came across this article.
to say the least the content is interesting.

We'll pretend that today is September 5th. K bloggers?
SO lets go back to September 5th 2009. YES 2009. lol this might sound kinda lame but it was a day that has changed my life. REALLY. MY LIFE WAS CHANGED!!! lol for the better though. i don't want to get into to much detail but realize this ladies, there are a couple of great men still out there.
its a funny thing finding someone that might be made for you. A kindred spirit that knows what your thinking before you say it. Or can make you laugh even when your angry with them. It makes you wonder what you were thinking when you were messing with those other people. It makes the other relationships seem like child's play.
And then there's that L word. We all know what word I'm talking about! The one that you both are scared to say to each other, but in a moment of passion it just..slips out. The word that changes your perspective on life and the people in it. And when your truly understanding what the L word means, and relating it to God's Love for his children, that's when you can honestly say to yourself.."Yeah...this is it."
Anyway I'm done being all sappy.lol I'll leave you with something Lupe said that kinda stuck with me.
Love, love. (Simple right??)
I love you hun. Happy 1 year Anniversary.

This little girl is REALLY having a conversation with God. She really reminded me of how awesome my God is. Is amazing to see young people being this enthralled in God and His Glory while adults are too consumed in their own problems and sorrows to realize, or remember it.
This is Hannah's Prayer. Enjoy Folks.

Okay bloggers. SO in my little corner of the internet world i cover a spectrum of things. One of those things include music. If you didn't already know I'm a musician myself and i love all types. One of my favorite things/groups to listen to are Barbershop Quartets. I came across a song "Cheer Up Charlie" in my MySpace days..woah i know looong time ago. But I've always loved it.
Anyhow, you can take a listen now. And listen with an open mind. Some don't fancy Barbershop Quartets, because of their close harmonies, but just remember folks..that's the point.

Okay so whose heard of the Shea Moisture line?? Its a hair and skin product line and I've had the pleasure of trying one of their products:
The Shea Moisture: Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Hold Smoothie. Other than it being a little oily, i really like it. It containis ALL natural ingredients, it smells really good AND it made my curls really distinct. Good stuff.
Here's the link for their products. i plan on getting more of their products.
you can get these products from any of your local targets.

Okay peeps. So lately I've been on the one Take 6 CD that I have EXTRA tough. The Harmonies are awesome but the most powerful thing about these men are the words that they choose to put with those harmonies. My dad described their voices to me as "heavenly" and honestly..those words and voices/harmonies couldn't have come from anyone BUT God.
But what i REALLY wanted to talk about in this blog was the words to the song "Gold Mine." When i was coming back from Nashville the other day, something told me to write about it.
Anyhow, this song is talking about God's Love. The most unconditional Love there is. It brings the best out of people that except It. You could compare the feeling of you being in love with a being of this Earth. And then amplify that love times a hundred infinities, and then some. Its just that powerful. Listen to the words folks. People now a days are so desperate for love they forget about the One that can Love them unconditionally even when we ignore Him. Think about it folks.
Ps. sorry for the bad recording.lol

Ever since London and my research on the British Invasion every single reference to the Beatles I've caught. I was just watching the Nanny and they made a reference to Eleanor Rigby. Great string quartet going on in the back ground. Great lyrics. Plus its the Beatles folks..can't get much better then that.

Hello again bloggers! i have a special treat for you dears. I've decided not to upload my pictures on facebook because...idk. maybe i will later. but this just seems so much easier. i'm picking 5 for you all to enjoy. and 5 for later..thats 10 photos folks!! hahah math..
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
Hey blogg world!!! its been a minute. *knocks on laptop screen* did you miss me???
First let me start off by saying I AM FINALLY 21!! And i had a great birthday. friends and family and my love made it a great one. BUT i HAVE to give the Glory to God for giving me another year and chance to do His Will. AMEN.
And i hope you'll be proud because i didn't have a single drop of alcohol on my day.
Second thing is I have a picture that i want to share!! Its more of a little comic book square...I got it from one of my friends facebook's and i think it says a lot. Plus it has a scripture. SO enjoy readers...whoever you are. **WAVES**
One more thing i want to share with you guys. I've been hanging out with my co workers a lot lately and they are all extremely God fearing people. One of the young ladies that I've gotten closest to told me about something she does that I'm going to try and I encourage you all to try it as well.
She has a prayer journal, but not just any prayer journal folks, no sir! This journal is specifically for when she gets mad. She prays and finds a Bible verse and then writes down what the Bible verse means and how it could help her anger. That's so powerful to me. It says in the Bible that God works through his people. God is clearly working through her, in how she's working for Him herself. Did that make sense??
Anyway. I think I'm finished. Its slick my Birth Week. I'll be celebrating again tonight and tomorrow at a revival at church and Saturday out to eat with friends. AND THE ICING ON THE ICE CREAM CAKE IS NASHVILLE SHORES ON FRIDAY WITH CO WORKERS AND MY LOVE!!!
lol I'm excited.
see ya bloggers, I'll be posting pictures from London and my birth week soon. =)

More greetings from London! Today was spent in Liverpool. Great shopping there. And not as many odd smells. If I were to live in the UK, Liverpool might just be the place. Anywho more Beatles and British Invasion stuff was packed into today. Very "educational." The train ride...well trains aren't made for the passengers to sleep on.
I'm gonna start this 10 page paper soon also..and its like 11:00 here. So I'm gonna get going.
Cheers bloggers. I'll upload pictures sometime soon.

Ello folks (british accent)
I send greatings from the UK. I'm typing at a computer at Regents College in London, England. Its been a long day with many flights and long lay overs. I haven't really slept in like 24 hours and I'm not quite sure what day it is. BUT I'm alive and well in London so I have no further complaints. I'm not sure what else to say because I'm typing with my eyes half open and its 8:11 here.. what time is it where you are folks?
(end British accent)
I'm so tired people but we're about to walk to a convient store on Baker's street..I think that street is famous because of Sherlocke Holmes. But anywho this is my very first blog while not being in the country..soo..yeah. Go me.
I've also been keeping a journal. Just of my thoughts and what I see. The tube was interesting with interesting people. It seems like everyone is sick..and they all shared the news paper, in turn spreading more germs. lol I hope no English man is offended by that.
As soon as we start the 'course' I can start writing about somethings that are Beatles or British Invasion related. But until then..

Okay folks I feel as though music might not be my calling. Instead..I've been pulled in another
direction. NO its not even photography. Its Marine Biology..yes. Marine. Biology. Really just the Marine part. If you know me you know I enjoy the water. I've been swimming since I was three and I've been working at a pool since i was thirteen. I love water and water creatures. So here's my plan. PRAYER being the first step. The second step being to finish my degree in Music Performance and to ALSO get my scuba diving licence, while also talking to different people in the field to see if its something I really want to do. If its not then I'll be a musician and I'll even get it tatted on my forehead.
Wish me Luck bloggers.

The Average White Band. Anyone ever heard of them?? Well..i think the name says it all. They're one of the bands that's had a long run like Tower of Power or Earth Wind and Fire.(notice the order i put those to groups in). Anywho the lyrics are powerful as well. Take a listen.
In lue of my upcoming London trip I decided that this weeks picture will be of the wonderful city. Enjoy.
Does anyone remember the episode of the Cosby Show when Claire and Cliff made up from a prior argument to this song and eating sliced fruit? No words. Just an instrumental. And fruit. That moment on television spoke volumes to me. Even though it was television the way the chords move on the piano or the sound of the sax just moved me. Even just the selection of this song was powerful to me. The writers really knew what they were doing.
lol really this song makes me feel sentimental. It reminds me of my relationship.lol Cosby like---minus the five kids. Moments like this makes the sad and angry times seem so much less important.
Anyway. Enjoy this song.

Okay folks, if you know me, you know that I don't really listen to alot of the music now adays because the artists lack talent. (fame doesn't equal talent folks.) One artists who I do listen to, because of the quality of her voice is Jasmine Sullivan. This is her when she was just 11 singing "Home" from the Wiz.
she was REALLY singing people. seriously that child is doing things with her voice that most people that have vocal training will never be able to do. no voice altering studio. no lip syncing. no sex appeal. just pure talent. a GOD given gift. and all THAT at 11 years old. this is what music today is missing.

Hello dears!! For those of you who DON'T know i want to get a Masters in Photography as well as Music Performance when i graduate from Undergrad. Sooo remember a while back...like in January, when I spoke of a segment that I might start. If you don't, no worries! I was going to explain it anyway. It involved having a picture that I took or a picture that i like that I'll post it for your and my enjoyment..
But really..its just for my enjoyment. I'm not sure who all reads my blog, but I've come to realize that this little Internet journal is just that...a place where i can relay my thoughts. You know the ones I'm talking about. The ones that weren't spoken out loud that day. Or maybe the ones that are devoted specifically to remembering worth while chunks of the day. Regardless, this is my blog..and who ever you are thanks for partaking in my little world. *WAVES*
Okay okay now its time for the picture. ...:drumroll:...
I think that reverting to my most recent blog would suffice for now. Seriously that picture is so powerful to me. There's no real need for me to elaborate any further. but enjoy dears. I'll be back soon.
lol i kinda fooled you sorry.

Natural hair that is..
Blog world I've recently started becoming obsessed with natural hair. Seeing as how I've been natural my entire life and how natural hair seems to be the new hopefully lasting trend among black America.
Sooo I've been you tubing products, hair styles, and products that can be made at home.(like the cinnamon lightening treatment i talked about in my last blog)
Anywho i encourage all natural ladies to look up ways to keep our kinky curly or twisted tresses healthy.
I love her!! Even though her hair is waaaaay different form mine. I'm still getting good ideas for hair styles and hair products to use. This is something i just did to my hair. Tomorrow I'll try to post the pictures of the results.(before and after)
She also talked about a young women that used a combination of honey and cinnamon to lighten her hair. She got really great results as well. i might try that next.

There is talent in Nashville, TN. I was recently apart of the NEXT IN LINE showcase, playing the violin with group of other string players. Now being apart of that talent is one thing, but witnessing it is another. Curtis Fields might be my new local talent favorite(besides Tish). These are the two songs he performed at the showcase. Dream World and Black Cherry.

Yesterday my good friend Desher(Dexter) went to our secret place. which is a not so secret place in the park. but he got the bright idea to talk to random people and get take pictures of them with my camera Lucy.
HE told them that we were interns at the Huntsville Times, i was a photography major (clearly I'm a music major) and that he was a journalism major(not true either folks). We stopped about 8 groups of people at the park and another group at Bridge Street telling them that we were doing a montage of photos and we were trying to catch real people doing real things.
Now...all of this was a lie. But it made the night all the more interesting. I got some really good pics and it refreshed my memory of why i want to get a masters in photography.
Any who I'm going to post those pics soon just so you guys can partake in my evening.
This is just one night of many. I'm thinking this might be a new segment on my blog.
I need a name for it so give me some suggestions!!

Its a short one.
1.macbook and maybe an unlocked iphone.
computer first though. if you don't already know I'm in desperate need of a new laptop. mine is..well rather sad. it has keys missing, shuts down if you move it to much and literally hanging on by its last hinge.
I'm going to London this summer and i need to save up some cash to help pay for it and to have a bit of spending money for the trip. i also might be going to NY for this program I'm apart and will be assisting to run next semester. i say might be because i haven't gotten any kind of details.
but anyway. money and a computer.

that's not the Lauren Hill we all know and love. i feel like she had little to none to do with the production of THAT song. and i'm so sincere. its like how they do biggie or tupac. putting they're already recorded voices on a track. but this one doesn't fit her words and how she's singing or even the content of the words.
its all about money in my opinion and who ever has access to her vault has no respect for her or her music.
i give it a D.
i think the reason why i'm not where i want to be, is because i can get shy...or something. i let people intimidate me in certain situations when it they shouldn't. i'm most comfortable when i'm around people i can be myself around. but when i'm not well. i'm not sure why but i clam up, get nervous, and get shy. its not attractive. im a personable person. but when it comes to being put out in the forefront i get nervous. being a leader something i've been told i'm good at. but just getting there is a challenge.
anywho. i think im done whining about myself. im gonna work towards fixing this about myself this summer.
Thursday, May 6, 2010
my sis (blood sis) is really being an inspiration to me. lol i mean really. Harvard bound. white water rafting and canoing every weekend. some other cool stuff. she's an evil canevil in the making i tell you.
i think im gonna try and be like her when i grow up. but i mean like me. make sense?
more traveling. when i venture outside of the stifling hbcu im going to expand my "thrill seeking" horizon.
but seriously soon im gonna get my scuba diving licence this summer.
i'm gonna make my summer list soon.
ooooooh speaking of summer. this is about to be a great one.
LONDON BOUND HO!!!

So i just found out one of my classmates from high school took his own life..I'm not really sure how to handle. I mean i know that i'm still alive and walking around. But how close am I to losing someone else in my life? Its crazy because HE of all people is one of the only people in high school that was ALWAYS pleasant, always joking, or always smiling. Even in the most adverse of situations for him he would smile and would be confidnet in God and his power..
I was looking through his facebook and his last status read (yesterday):
"God please have mercy on my soul.."
I just pray for his family. And my classmates.

I am not myself right now. I feel kinda like Alice. Who is Alice people??! Last time i checked my name started with a 'L'. Maybe its this cold...but I'm starting to view myself differently. I kinda want to venture out and be more helpful to the campus. I want to have friends other than music majors and in my organizations. I want to join other organizations. But the thing is stretching myself to thin by trying to be in three places at once. That maybe why I don't feel like myself..I'm tired..

So lately I've been hitting the Gospel music extra hard an reading my
Bible more often. (I'm changing my lifestyle and this is helping.) and
I've discovered that i LOVE when gospel artist quote scripture in
there songs. One of my favorites is Matthew 28 by Donald Lawrence. But
this blog is about a different song.
All my musicians, music lovers, music majors, wanna be musicians. And
all of those that love my God please read this verse. And listen to J
Moss's song Psalms 150...that song is powerful. And that book names
instrument families!! Which makes this completely relvant to real
life. I don't know about you guys but some times when I read the Bible
I look at it all as a story..a book that's just there to teach us
lessons and to make sure we do right by God and each other. But this
book right here has put the entire Bible in a completely different
light..and the song just makes me want to praise Him more. Look at
I'll praise him.
Since I'm breathing!!

It's funny how a simple gesture or a switching of rolls can change
your perspective of a person. Sometimes for the worse...but in this
case for the better. Avatar the second time was way better. The
circumstances. The electricity. The stuff that's been there since we
started.. It was nice to trade rolls. Nice to see a smile mixed with
discomfort..lol. "best night ever" your welcome love. =)

my significant other told me something he heard in church.
when your bored why not praise God?
seriously when you feel like you have nothing to do..use that time to get closer to Him.
glorify Him, pray to Him, listen to a gospel song, read the Bible. what ever it is you do.
just a thought.
its really hard to tell someone how you feel about them. i mean really. how do you tell someone you really like, that you like them. you've been liking them forever. and your heart longs for them to know and understand your feelings. maybe even share them. if that's not to much to ask.
its been my experience that relationships aren't supposed to be hard to get into. i mean. the right ones aren't hard to get into AND maintain. not with the person that GOD wants for you, to be more specific. falling in love should be as easy as inhaling and exhaling. like..you should be the front of your significant others hand and he should be the back of yours with GOD being the veins and bones and blood and skin that connects the two sides. co-existing so easily in the same body/world as if you to are the only ones there.
now i'm not in love. and i don't claim to be. but i do claim to be in such a relationship. a GOD filled one. yes yes...flaws...everyone has them. my flesh is weak sometimes..and i try not to act all "Holier then thou" but i'm truly trying to improve my walk with GOD.
this not at all what i planned on writing about. i was reading some past blogs and reflecting on past relationships and how evident it was when i was having troubles in those relationships and how i tried with everything in me to hang on to the failing relationship that GOD obviously didn't want for me. the signs were there i just ignored them and kept walking half blind and half deaf into the wrong situation.
anyway. i think one of the points of all this is to not force things and to keep your eyes open. esp relationships. not just between men and women but friendships too.
you can draw your own conclusion.
i don't think i'm a complicated person. i don't think i'm rude. i don't think its unnatural to have disagreements with my siblings. that's really the point of this blog. i mean still love them. most of the time when we "argue" we're laughing. i've never wished i was an only child. i've never asked for a different brother or sister. but the way my parents yell and carry on..one would think that i did those things every day. they make it seem as though we physically fight each other and they break up the fight narrowly avoiding the death of one of there kids. when in reality...its never that serious to us. NEVER.
now mind you. my parents have lost siblings in different ways. God has claimed the lives of a few. while other worldly things have claimed the lives of others. and i understand the reasoning to there wacked out logic. but i love my brother. and i love my sister. if they don't see that i don't know why. when we're not arguing we're laughing. we can co exist.
when i have kids i'm not sure how i'm going to handle this but i'm positive when my kids are 20+ i'm not gonna send them to their rooms..that drives them away in other ways..

okay i'm done being irritated. (that was quick right)
i decided to use a basic white template and to put one of my favorite pictures at the top.
yess..i am now excited about blogger. im gonna post some pics i took over this break.
if im not a photographer..idk what i am...maybe a musician. still. i'll post. you enjoy.

is it bad that I'm ready to get the hell out of wackville, al?? Really cuz I'm not feeling this anymore..i haven't been out the house since the snow..I'm about ready to scream..i was supposed to leave today..but that got moved till tomorrow...which got moved to Monday. and i STILL haven't registered yet..so Elaine and i will be there on Thursday to start classes...which i probably won't be attending anyway. What was TSU thinking when started the semester off on a Thursday. and then MLK coming up? i don't really know what they expected from the students..#fail.
Don't get me wrong..i love my family. Everything they do for me I'm grateful. BUT they're irking the hell out of me. Its time to go.
I'm just irritated...bye.

its probably time to change things. "Yo! Lott Roxx soxx. Word." While this statement is undoubtedly true, i do in fact rock socks, its a new year and its time for some knew things.
so new layout. blog name. maybe new url. and who knows..i might even WRITE in here..*gasp* i know! me actually taking time to inform you guys about my life and the goings on of my days at school. idk maybe i won't.
BUT while I'm here...
I'm thinking a new segment on this here blog could have something to do with photography. i might find a picture someone else took or that i took and post it..idk its just a thought.
maybe updates on my relationship..maybe not. Im not sure why i have a privacy issue when it comes to this thing. Like who reads this??
i'll get over it. and i'll include my readers on the simple bliss of my relationship.
actually i think that's all i'll share. "simple bliss"
i don't want this blog to become a weird romance internet novel.lol and i don't like to share.
anyhow. i'm going to make some changes and..i might be back to talk.
