Broke Girl Diaries: Chapter 1 sneaker addiction

Sneakers ruined my life it started when i was four or five i got my first pair of nikes they was blue and check this out the swoosh change colors (tear roles down eye) they was awesome oh so awesome i would wear them right now if could find them. Any who it started then, while most little girls was into shoes and purses i was all about the sneakers. I went threw a period of rocking the payless sneakers oh they may have been payless but you best believe that i had the best damn payless sneakers out the store homie. later years of grade school i got back with the name brand break up to make up what can i say. I remember sitting in class staring at kids feet wanting their sneakers. My cousin back in the day had a mean sneaker game her kicks was always on point. You see i wasn't the richest the kid my mom did her best to keep name brand sneakers on our feet and i can't complain but as kid i got sneakers but it never was more than one pair at a time. I wanted to have 3 pair of sneakers at a time or at least the latest style but i did not quite work like that for me. You know how hard is watching your friends walk in class with the new jordans on. So when i finally got a job it was on and poppin two pairs of kicks every two weeks. So i know your asking Shema you grown as hell why talking about sneaker and childhood. Well living in this current recession I feel like that kid in class again. I have not had a pair of sneakers in a year like imagine Paris hilton not been being able to buy prada tragic i know. But damn it i want a pair of sneakers. they ruined my life.......

......Oh and by way the Nikes are my favs I done did the fila treatment rock the three stripes wore the pumas I will say this and probably catch flack I have never been a Reebok Broad (i'm sorry) I did not do the 54.11.

June 11th 1996 Mona Lisa released her debut 11-20-79

As I continue with my series of great albums of 1996, this album that I am featuring on this post is probably in my top 10 of  my top 100 favorite albums. I promise I will treat you all to that list one day soon, I have been mentally creating that list forever, as old albums stay the same, new albums come out so stay tuned. Anyway this album featured on today's post is an album that I still play on a regular basis to this day.

Movie soundtracks was big in the 90s, sometimes even bigger than regular albums, the Wayans brothers had this hilarious move called "Don't be a menace while drinking your juice in south central" a spoof on all the hood classic films in the 90s.  The soundtrack was even better, R&B singer Joe had one of the biggest hits that helped him become name in R&B. He had a song called "All The Things…

What's Going On?

I may talk about music and culture, It is my way to ease the pain with all the things I see going on in this world. But it is too much to ignore, last weekend there was bomb explosion in Mogadishu, Somalia. As of right now it has been reported that 300 lives has been lost due the terrorist attack.

I do my best to keep up with what is going on, whether it's in pop culture, local or national news. And with this recent terrorist attack. The one thing I don't see flooding up and down my time lines on my social media feed. Is  #PrayForSomalia, that is something that is very scarce across the feeds. But I bet your bottom dollar I can see the endless memes of bitches not being shit and its numerous likes.

That goes without fail, I posted a few links about this horrific incident and all I have heard is crickets. If I posted a joke and made fun of reality star. It would have been likes and comments galore. I am not tell…

1997 Part II

I was sixteen years old in 1997, music was life back then for me, and in that year I needed it more then ever, My freshmen year of high school was 1996 - 1997 and during that school year I was at a school I did not want to be at. In the city of Buffalo at that time, during 8th grade year students had to pick the top choices of the high school they wanted to go to. It was all based on grades during 7th grade year and first grade quarter of 8th grade.

Math was my weakest subject, and the schools that I chose at the time a student had to excel well in the area of math. And me not being on my A game it caused me to loose out on all of my choices of the schools I wanted to attend. So in fall of 1996 I was at my district school. While all my Jr. high friends was at the school of their choices living the high life.

I had to make a daily trip to south Buffalo, a place I did not want to be, what kept me calm to and from schoo…
