Artists are often just that....artistic. They may have talents in more than one area of expertise, such as music, clothing, production...etc etc. Most recently Kanye West has produced his movie, Runaway, which I still havent brought myself to watch yet...I mean I get that he is a revolutionary in the music world and blah blah blah blah, but I just get the impression that its gonna be a 30 minute music video...and I'm not intrigued. But I'll get around to it.
Anyways, Erk the Jerk, (he sings the song 'I Just Wanna F*ck You Right Here') also has a history of producing. He has produced the last two videos for his "pre-album" EP. I really liked his short film out entitled "The Perfect Mistake."Although it's concept was similar to Drake's "Find your Love" video, I really like it. I'm no cinematography expert, but I like what I see. I mean, the talent lies in the fact that he produced it himself, which to me in pretty dope. I'm also loving his other video 'Anything'. Gotta love the diversity of girls in the vid. #teamdarkskin -_- haha just playin. But seriously, check out both videos!
This weekend I went on a Black Leadership Retreat with my school (pictures coming soon!) and we talked about a bunch of topics. One of the most interesting discussions I had this weekend had to do with adultery. Adultery is defined as "voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man and someone other than his wife or between a married woman and someone other than her husband;" Here is where the debate lies, if you were in loving marriage for a substantial period of time (at least 5-10 years) and your partner committed adultery, would you immediately, or ultimately resort to divorce. Some of the people I talked to said divorce would be their primary option. And that adultery is really the only thing that can break the bond of marriage and make it OK to end it. I somewhat disagree, I believe that in this day and age, marriage isn't taken seriously. People don't know or don't realize that marriage is hard. And its supposed to be for life. And there are going to be bumps in the road. I do not, in anyway, condone adultery, or any type of physical or emotional abuse but I just feel like people resort to divorce too quickly. After your first divorce, your chances of having a successful marriage continues to dwindle, drastically. I just think that if you are happily married and your partner steps out on your marriage, you owe it to your marriage and to yourself to examine why whatever happened , happened. I would hope that I know the person I marry well enough to know that that person is going to stick with me through thick and thin. People change, but I would hope that the person I make my husband changes for the better as we grow old together. Maybe I'm just a hopeless romantic, but I just believe that there is no way to determine what life is going to throw at you and sometimes we aren't going to be prepared. People make mistakes, and I believe in forgiveness and second chances. I acknowledge the fact that it could take a long time to re-cooperate from your partner breaking your trust, but I dont think its impossible to rebuild that trust and even possibly make it become stronger. But who knows, you never really know how you will act, unless you are actually in that situation. What do you guys think, is adultery a deal breaker in a married relationship?
I have a bad habit to not planning ahead. I don't use planners, I don't really have a set schedule, and I am a huge procrastinator. I don't know what I want to do with my life, I just know what I know and I know what I like. Everyday is a new day. I don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. I need to focus on what is happening in the now. What can I do now to make my life better? What can I do now to make myself happy? What can I do now to make myself great? These are questions that often pervade my mind, but I have no answers. All I know is I wanna be the best. I like finishing first, I hate coming in second to anything, anyone, anytime, anywhere. (you should know that about me.) I think the best thing to do is take things one step at a time. Every action has a reaction. Every cause has an effect. So whatever I'm doing now, is going to have some type of effect in the long run and I pray that its a positive one. Everyone makes mistakes, but you gotta move past them...and sometimes that means letting some people/ some things go. And thats OK. We only have one life to live, and I intend to make the most of it.
Just a little train of thought that I decided to share....dont mind the randomness or pointlessness of it all.
I'll admit, when my roommate signed our club up to get up at 7am on a Sunday to participate in a Breast Cancer Walk, I wasn't thrilled. I had a rough week and I definitely was not trying to get up early in the morning just to walk in the cold for 30 minutes. But, I thought about it and thought to myself that the tiny pain of me having to get up early could not even compare to the pain of those who were suffering from breast cancer or those who had friends and family suffering from breast cancer. So I went, and I'm glad I did. I had never been to a walk for a cause of any kind. It was great to see all those people gathered there for a great cause, and I was happy to support those who had lost someone to breast cancer by my presence in the walk. My only regret is that I wish I had gotten more pictures of different peoples shirts, signs, etc....like i said before...it was early, and i am not a morning person. lol
