Let me first say this. I love my friends though their ups and downs. I love seeing them happy and hate seeing them sad. In the ripe old age that I am my friends and I are all at a point in our lives where everyone is getting married and having kids. Most of my friends are married…most of my friends have kids…I am a single mom…my friends and I are in different points in my life. But one thing was for certain- I was always going to have that one girlfriend that was never going to get old (like the rest of us) She was going to stay wild and free and untamed by what society expects her to be. The girl who I lived vicariously though and lived for her stories and crazy facebook pictures. That is until she met the man of her dreams and now wants to settle. Am I happy for her? Yes, Ive been friends with her since we were 18 and shes has her fair share of losers (haven’t we all) put part of me feels like she has the world at her finger tips – she can up and leave the county whenever she wants. With a Masters degree in business she has opportunities to travel to countries the average human being only dreams of and shes throwing it all away to be like the rest of us. *sigh* Its like when your 16 year old gets pregnant. Are you sad? Maybe. Are you disappointed? maybe. Do you still love and have her back because at the end of the day that’s the most important thing? YES! I guess Ill do what any self respecting friend does- welcome her to the world of boring and mediocrity. Should I make a gift basket?
They say a womans loyalty is tested when her man has nothing and a mans loyalty is tested when he has everything. Men is you got a girl who stands by your side no matte what- who your calling at 2am just because you need to talk to someone- who you can be yourself around- thats a good woman. Who cares about her minor flaws because truth is everyone has flaws. So instead of looking at the fact that she may have a quality that you DONT like- pay attention to all of the qualities she has that makes her GREAT. The same goes for the ladies. You focus on the minor details in someone and miss the bigger picture. I knew a girl who wouldnt give this guy the time of day because he wore white sneakers. Seriously. White sneakers. He was a nice guy- kind of nerdy. He treated his girlfriends so good. She didnt care- she was truened off by the fact that he wore white sneakers. But then again this is the same girl who dates every single guiedo at the jersey shore (where we actually are from) and wonders why all the guys she dates are tools. Point Im trying to make is stop being so superficial. Judge people by who they are not how they dress or what they look like. Because you will end up missing out on alot
I enter care who you are- everyone has that one person that they always think about. Every time you see a certain movie, hear a certain song or pass a certain place…your mind goes right to them and the special times you had together. You forget the bad, the fights and what went wrong. The old saying goes “don’t cry because it’s over- smile because it happened” things happen for a reason and even thought you may not understand the reason now eventually it will all make sense.
Parmigiana is a method of Italian cooking wherein breaded, fried cutlets are layered in cheese and tomato sauce. Originally made with eggplant (Melanzane alla Parmigiana), breaded chicken and veal cutlets are popular as well. There is some dispute as to where this dish came from; logic would dictate that the Northern province of Parma started the craze, but Southern regions Campania and Sicily also stake a claim in this dish. A common misconception is that the dish got its name from its inclusion of Parmesan cheese (despite the fact that mozzarella is the most common cheese used in this dish); but like Chicken Parmesan, Parmesan cheese got its name from the fact that it is produced in the Parma region (Parmigiano-Reggiano is its Italian name, denoting that the cheese also comes from the neighboring Reggio Emilia province).
While Chicken Parmesan is fairly well-known in the US, it’s of…

I get a lot of flack for being so judgmental toward females but from my experience females are ruthless! (Not all…but some) I was raised that as a female you should always have your own and never need to rely on anyone. A relationship is a partnership not an opportunity to get rich. If I approached you and said “hey let’s start a business together BUT your going to put up all the money and do all the work but we will put both our names on the business and when it makes money we will split it” if your smart you will tell me no and to go F myself yet you got these hoes (yeah I said HOES) who call themselves “stay at home moms” who’s men/husbands/babies daddies work like an animal to pay all the bills ….men! Why do you allow yourself to be taken advantage of! And those same whores are the ones who complain that their life is hard! What’s so hard about going to the park and watching the Price is Right! You can’t even come to me n say your life is hard! I do what you do PLUS work 50+ hours a week. There is nothing hard about cooking, cleaning and doing laundry. Plus all the stay at home moms I know are always at the park or Gymboree or some other play place. There used to be this kid who used to go to my job- he was 20- he didn’t have a job- his parents paid all his bills and even gave him beer/weed money…he was such a deadbeat….and yes that’s how I see stay at home moms….your man is paying all your bills and giving u spending money. You know who’s a real mom to me? Women like myself who teach their children the value of hard work- who work 2 and 3 jobs just to provide for their children. Not those bum hoes standing there with their hands out asking their man for money. Everything from the clothes on my sons back to the shoes on his feet and the food in his belly comes from my pocket. I rather do without then chase some dude for money. Men and women need to compliment each other and MATCH what each other brings to the table. Not let the poor guy bust his butt while is wife is home watching tv and getting her hair done. Your grown you shouldn’t have to ask permission to buy things….if you have your own money then buy what you want as long as your half of the bills are paid for.
I used to blog all of the time when I was in college but due to the unnecessary backlash I received, I stopped. But I’ve decided that I am not going to let other people stop me from doing what I love. I love writing, photography (pictures soon to come) and going on adventures. Life is about the things that make you happy and not letting anyone stop you from doing them. Life is not perfect but those things that make you happy- your passions in life- is whats perfect in life. So to my critics- No I will not stop blogging- no you can not shut me up!
Theres a scene in the notebook where the mother brings her daughter to some yard and you see a bunch of guys working shoveling dirt or coal or something…and the mother says that the guy is the love of her life…n gives some speech about true love…and that not a day goes by that she doesnt regret not being with him so she drives by his job every day to watch him. Let me tell you, if you never been in love, there is no greater pain then being head over heels and life doesnt allow you to be together. Thinking “what if i made a different choice” i know all things happen for a reason and you cant take things back but that doesnt take away the pain and the heartache. Knowing that the only person you ever loved- is in the arms of someone else- because when your back was against the wall- you chose the peaceful choice instead of backing them. My life would be different- better- because the only time i was happy- was with him.
