Sorority Life

It's not what you think...

I did not join a sorority! I'm not even in school right now. LoL. It's just I have this new addiction that's cutting into my productivity. It's this MySpace application called Sorority Life. Les told me it's similar to Mobwars or whatever but I wouldn't know. Anyway, I joined it out of boredom and curiosity as I was taking a break from working on my MySpace (which I still haven't finished). Now, it would seem that I am addicted to this game. This reminds me of 8th grade Algebra when I would play Pimp Quest on my TI-83+ instead of learning how to F.O.I.L. I have no producitivity right now and a to-do list a mile long. Somebody help!

This is my character, Lady JaJa. My sorority house only has 10 members so far. :(

Actually, this is no longer a cry for help. I know my productivity is shot to shit now! LoL. Now this is a JOIN MY SORORITY BLOG. If you're not my myspace friend and would like to add me to join my sorority my myspace url is:

First and Foremost:


Now, I know most of you probably thought Lisa Turtle was dead but she's I'm not. I wasn't blogging because, up until two weeks ago, I really didn't have much to say. I've been in a 2.5 year funk... Now, some may attribute that to the nearly 3 years of my life I wasted on some little boy who didn't deserve me BUT I know the bulk of it can not be placed on him. I've had a lot of unfortunate things happen and I was not equipped to handle them. But that's all neither here not there now because the situation is what it is. So, this is the place I'm in now. I'm trying to let it all go. As our new president has declared time and time again, CHANGE is on it's way. This year I vow to not sit on the sidelines of life. I want to be a star player. I have no long-term goals (excluding happiness) as of yet but I hope through completing a series of short-term goals I will discover some things for me in the long-term. I have to put all of my negative thoughts out to pasture. This is why I have declared this year: CLEAR MIND '09: NO DISTRACTIONS. I know this year may be due to things beyond my control (the state of the world) but I know I can make it. The last 2 years have been more than I ever thought I could live through and I'm still here.

What I'm saying is, I'm on my way back to the right path. I got a little lost but I found those breadcrumbs I had left and I'm finding my way back. I'm getting back to the basics. This year is for me and when my process is over... The world will see how it has made me a better person! I will share my experiences here but they won't all be serious and stuff - That's just not me! I will still be random, irreverent, and borderline retarded. I hope y'all continue to vibe with me and I will update more! That's for serious because I have so many things I want to share. The process will come in me re-doing the look of the blog and changing the name and possibly the url. I hope you guys continue to feel me though. I love all the e-friends I made and I hope to make more (lol).

Catch 22

22 years ago today they cut my mommy open and pulled me out. Yes, today is my BIRTHDAY. The days leading up to my birthday were full of mixed emotions, particularly the final week. You see, my good friend Elisha (the one who was murdered) would have had his 21st birthday on Nov. 12, 2008 - exactly one week prior to my 22nd birthday. I look at this picture from his birthday this year and think to myself how wrong this is. Was today a good day? Yes. Better than I could have ever anticipated (given my emotions leading to my birthday)? Yes. I just missed him so much today. I didn't get much time with him but if you would have known him you would know that forgetting him is impossible. Anyway, I am very thankful for the special people in my life who made this one of my best birthdays ever. I don't know if it's because my expectations were so low but it's really been super and it's not even over yet. I mean, JAHMAL TONGE told me Happy Birthday! ;) So without further adieu - Pointless personal pictures to further prove I am a weirdo. Thanks for reading about my dull life and random thoughts.

First Time Voter! (Sort of...)

in my very first presidential election! (I was 17 days too young last time!)

Obviously, you guys know who I voted for. It goes without saying. I also voted yes for Maryland to allow for early voting and no on slots! Yay me! I got to the polls around 6:40am and was out near 7:30 eventhough the lines were crucially long. Then my mom took me to get a presidential breakfast.
Yep, you can't get more patriotic than McDonald's!!! LoL! (Side note: My hash browns were extra greasy.) (Other side note: I always get a sausage biscuit with cheese and put strawberry jelly on it... My mom thinks that is the grossest/weirdest shit ever. What do you think???) Anyway guys, I hope all of you that are registered to vote get out there and vote if you haven't already. I am so sick right now and I still got my butt out there. I don't want to hear the my vote doesn't matter shtick either! I live in MD, we're going for 08AMA, I know my one vote didn't put it over the edge but there are other issues to vote on and then there's the whole people died for your right thing. Anywho... Enjoy this moving, powerful, and completely appropriate video from Miri Ben-Ari. (Last side note: I was very upset to learn about the passing of President 08ama's grandmother just hours before he makes history.)

Happy Voting!
