Life of the College Girl

I really don’t have anything I want to write about. Just felt like writing. I got so much clutter on my mind right now, I don’t know where to begin.

Am I the only who has a problem with my body? I’m asking because everyone keeps telling me there’s nothing wrong with it and that I don’t have to lose any weight, but honestly I think I do. That’s why I started work on  The Claudette Jameson Diet. I have a blog for that now too, I made my first Vlog for it. I’ll post it here. Anyway, I can’t see what everyone else does. I see a big stomach and big legs that need to be slimmed. I see a reason to be in the gym for 2 hours 3 times a week. I might add another day though. I am off tomorrow.

Today I good sum of money in my account. I’ve already paid all my bills and took out money to get my hair and brows done. I got a ton left over and I want to buy some shoes, but I don’t know if I really want them. As you know I’m a member of Shoedazzle,so I get some pairs of shoes to choose from every month. This month I asked for an alternative selection of flats, which looked good from a far but I knew wouldn’t look good one me. However, there were these shoes that weren’t part of the group selected for me that I loved.  These:

Those caught my eye because they were different and I like different. But I’m not 100% on them. I mean, I need a shoe that I can wear to class everyday, that are comfortable, and cute. So far these are 1 for 3.  I just don’t know, but I have a couple of weeks to figure it out. I like to treat myself to a pair of shoes each month regardless of if its Shoedazzle or the mall, so maybe I’ll go out tomorrow and see something I like. If not, I might get these.

But more than likely I’m going shopping tomorrow. I need new work pants because the ones I have now have a hole in them. I assume because my ass is too big, or because the quality is terrible. I think I’ll buy some Dickies this time.

I’m so bored right now, and cold. Times like this makes me wish I had a man. Seriously, like whenever I’m cold I just wish I had a guy to warm me up, kiss me, rub me down, etc.  Then I come back to reality. I’m willing to look for the right one and not just settle. My Mr. Perfect isn’t everyone’s Mr. Perfect. My Mr. Perfect has flaws that are beautiful that I see as perfect, and I hope he see’s me the same way.

I don’t know what it is about Lupe Fiasco, but when I listen to him I just become more productive. If I listen to any type of music while I’m writing it’s him. It’s weird.  I tried to listen to different artist while studying, writing, reading and I couldn’t did it. Could it be that Lupe Fiasco has a classical music effect on me?  I guess since I love hip hop he’s like my Mozart.

Anyway, I think I’m done. It’s too cold to have my hands out like this, and I’m inside! LOL.

Luv Ya!

I was just on Sisterlicious uploading my latest entry(not that I’m trying to whore my blog, just to get a lil fan base.) and I can across this. Ok, ya’ll all know that I am anti-BET, but this really interested me because it is something I think about while driving down the street or walking through the mall.

Why do we as black people spend so much money trying to look like you got money, but skimp on everything else. Some of us wont pay the extra money to buy organic produce, yet we will spend up to $200 on a pair of shoes real quick. Yeah you can be the flyest dude in class, but you wont pass without your books.

I’m not even going to lie, I’m a Dereon,and Baby Phat addict. But Aj Wright and Burlington have this thing called layaway, I can shop like a wild women, feed my addiction, and pay on it a lil bit each paycheck for 30 days. With the exception of shoes, I never pay full price for my clothes. This place called Plato’s Closet. Ladies, if you’re a shopaholic like me check to see if there is one close to you. They have name brand second hand item, some things are brand new, for thrift store prices. First time I went in there I bought a brand new Dereon hoodie, still had the original Dereon tags on it, for $6.00.

If you want to take my advice, spend money on things you need. White folk ain’t gonna think you any richer than you are with that damn Coogi sweater on. To be real with you, some of the riches people look a hot mess. Why? Because all there money goes back into their business instead of in their pocket, or into a Roll Royce. Yeah sooner or later they will get that luxury vehicle, or that private jet,or be able to go on thousand dollar shopping sprees in Europe, but they don’t do it as soon as they get they’re first big check. It’s call saving and investing, and us as black people need to consider that as an option for our money. Instead of spending $110 on the new Fusion 3 Jordans, how about you buy some stock in Nike. Or invest in a small business instead of investing in new rims. After I pay off my credit cards, I’m going to start saving to start my boutique. I want to save at least $6,000, and then get a loan (hence the reason why I want to pay off my CCs first.). I’m not big on spending tons of money on clothes. I mean the most expensive thing that I bought for my back to school shopping other than my books where those shoes that you see above ^, and those were like $70(and I pissed because I drove for 45 minutes to get them bitches just to find that they had them at the mall by my house. They have those in Air Max too, I always wanted some Air Max….). I did splurge however, for the first time in my life I spent more than $12 on a t-shirt. I usually spend between $3-$12. Those 2 were $22 each. I can’t help it, I felt like ballin…

Anyway, like I said before….I think…there is nothing wrong with being cheap. Why pay for a name brand when the brandless shirt right beside it is way cuter?

Luv Ya!!
