Question?

Good Morning !!!!

As always I hope everyone is doing well. I’ma tell you one thing; I feel so much better then I’ve been feeling in the last couple of weeks! I guess you could say my body and mind needed the rest. I feel a little guilty saying that, because we’ve only been back in school for about 3 months. I shouldn’t feel bad about saying that though. I’m sure there are a lot of  people just as grateful for this break as I am. There’s probably teachers out there already planning their Summer vacation.

Well… Like I told you all before there’re going to be some things I’m going to be working on bringing to life. First I need your input.

First is:

Which play should I work on producing first?

  • Desire- A tale of  a very gullible girl, who falls in love with someone who appears will never love her back. Not realizing everything she thought she knew was a lie and sh*t was gonna hit the fan a lot sooner than she ever expected.

Or

  • Loyalty: Love, Lies & Betrayal- My first self published book. A tale of  a homosexual couple who has problems just like anyone else. Centered around Jacoby who is an owner of a multimillion dollar record company. But has failed to realize everything he has is due to his loving somewhat crazy husband Stacy. Things start taking a turn for the the worst when Stacy gets wind of just how giving and generous Jacoby has been and has continued to be to his female counter parts.

If you’re interested in either book, minimal entries to Desire can be found here on  ShadsShortStories.com or if you would like to read Loyalty: Love, Lies & Betrayal in its entirety grab a copy @Amazon.com/Loyalty Love Lies & Betrayal.

One more thing; if you’re looking for something to give that special lady in your life and not exactly sure what to get. Give  her a basket of Lulu’s Lavish Lathers. Soap that caters to you!

As Always

COMING SOON

Hope all is well.

I know this post is a little late. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about today. I had a couple things in mind, but couldn’t make up my mind. It was either going to be; Why are good men being put on child support? Was Jesus real? Why or why not? or Why were 9 to 5’s created?

But I decided not to talk about any of them today. I really wanted to let you in on the second book I’ll be publishing. It’ll be coming out this summer. The name of it is definitely going to be Desire. But I’m thinking about adding a sub header Desire: Good Girl Gone Bad. What do you think?

If you haven’t had the chance to read it; here are links to parts 7, 8, 9, 10, 11.

Would really love to know your thoughts.

If you enjoyed what you read, please leave a comment or like the links, so I know it’s a go. Also don’t forget to tell others about the book. Word of mouth is a very powerful thing. Or just share the link. All are much appreciated.

As Always…..

Desire: Part 11

“The next morning……

“Good morning, Love. How did you sleep?” Desire almost wanted to pat herself on the back for a job well done. Remembering just a few hours prior she was making him, say her name. She must have tried every trick she ever learned to make him cum. But instead everything she did to bring him closer to orgasm seemed to bring her, closer. She was getting more and more aroused by the pleasure she was giving, but Klaus being the man he was couldn’t let her have all the fun; so naturally he took back control. He started with a gentle kiss behind her ear, then worked his way down her neck and then to her breast. By the time he reached her flower, she was sopping wet with nectar. Every flick of his tongue sent chills up and down her spine, and every kiss seemed to make her want him inside her even more.

“I slept pretty good.” Klaus said as he had a smile on his face that spread from ear to ear, remembering the activities that took place the night before.

“So, what do you wanna do now?” Desire was hoping they would be able to spend the whole day together, so they could have time to get to know each other on a deeper level. But Klaus had other plans.

“What time is it, Babe?”

“A little before 10.”

“What?! I gotta go!”  Klaus quickly sprung into motion. Trying to get home as quick as possible, because he didn’t want his wife to notice he hadn’t been home all night. But little did he know, his effort to get home before she noticed was just a waste of energy, because the night before she took the liberty of putting a tracker on his phone.

“Where are you going?!”

“I’m sorry, Babe. But, I really have to go. I have a meeting in the next hour I have to get prepared for.” Lying came so easy for him; sometimes he lied so well he almost believed his self.

“When are you gonna finally tell me what you do?!”

“I told you; when the time is right.”
“I don’t understand why it isn’t right, right now. You act like we haven’t been dating for the past month. It’s not like you don’t know me. Hell, we’ve been f****** practically since we met!” Desire was becoming desperate to find out his line of work. She didn’t understand his reason for keeping what he did for a living as a secret from her; he knew why. He wished he could tell her, because he was really starting to feel something real with her. But he knew the truth would bring a holt to what ever they could become in the near future.

“Babe, I will tell you soon. Okay?”

“Okay. ” Desire began to pout because she wanted to know why everything had to be so top secret with him.

“I’ll call you when I get out of the meeting. Okay?”

“Alright. Make sure you do that.”

As Klaus got ready to leave he noticed his wife’s car outside of Desire’s house. Panic surged through his whole body at the thought of Sheila catching him there; but he had to play it off.

“Are you expecting someone?”

“No. Why?”

“I see someone walking to the door.”

“And, what is that suppose to mean? I thought you had to go. What’s stopping you now!”

“Babe please understand if I meet one of your friends, I don’t want it to be like this.” Klaus wasn’t quite sure if the reverse psychology was working but he was just taking shots at the air hoping something would stick.

“What are you talking about? Like what?”

“I rather them see me when I’m not in a rush.”

By now Desire had seen who was walking to her door and she wasn’t sure how she was going to get her to leave.

“Don’t worry about it. Give me a minute I’ll let you know when you can come out.”

“Okay, Babe. I’m not trying to be rude, but can you make it quick. Thanks” He said as he smacked her butt, retreating back into the room.

Desire had no clue what she was going to say, but she kept in mind to make it quick, because she didn’t want her man to miss out on making his money.

Knock!!! Knock!!!! Knock!!!

“Hold on!” She had no clue what she was going to say, but she was sure something was going to spring to mind.

“Open this door! I know he in there!”  

“Sheila? What are you doing here?”
“Monique don’t play dumb! You know why I’m here!”

“I promise you, I really don’t know why you’re here.”

Sheila gave her some time to cut the act, but soon notice the confused expression all over her face.

“Are you for real?! You don’t know that the man you f***** last night is my husband!”

In that moment Desire felt as if her whole world came crashing down around her. Here she was feeling all the butterflies and flutters of the heart; just to find out that the person she decided to finally whole heartedly give herself to was nothing but a philanderer. And what made it even worse was the fact he was the husband of the woman who broke her heart. Sure she wanted to hurt Sheila in the worst way, but not like this.

To Be Continued…….

Desire: Part 10

“Desire you really gonna leave me out here like this?!”

“I told you if you didn’t have something in your hands for me ,that the door was gonna get slammed in your face! You thought I was playing?!”

“Come on, let me in!”
She was tired of the games. She didn’t want to admit it, but being with Klaus made her think about all the times she was hurt and disappointed by her ex-Keith; a guy she dated the whole time in high school. Desire was sure they were going to get married and have a couple of kids; but Keith had something else in mind. Before she knew it, Keith left town; and his reason for leaving was to be with some older girl. Someone he had apparently been with the whole time he was dating Desire; so she thought.

“See all ya’ll the same!” Klaus couldn’t quite hear what she was saying but he got the gist of it.

“Babe I promise, I’ll be right back!” Klaus wasn’t sure what to get Desire, but he knew that he had to get her something. Other wise there was no chance she was going to let him in her house, let alone between her thighs.

Time passed , for Desire it felt like an eternity, because she was afraid that he gave up and left, for good. She would never admit it, but when it came down to the worth she had for herself, there was very little. She always seemed to let a mans opinion over of her overshadow the way she felt about herself. She hadn’t realized it, but she was doing it again.

Knock!!! Knock!!! Knock!! 

“Who is it?!”

“Babe, it’s me! Let me in!”

“Where did you go?!”

“Just open the door!”

Once Desire opened the door what she saw was nothing short of breath-taking.

“What is all this?!” Desire was taken aback by the amount and types of gifts Klaus presented to her.

“Well, I felt like I should get you something that shows I plan to be with you for a long time.”

There wasn’t much that could be said that could change her mind about Klaus in that moment. She thought for sure he was the man for her and she was the woman for him. All the previous thoughts of him being with someone else magically disappeared upon seeing the abundant amount of gives he took his time choosing for her.

“What is all this?!”

“Baby you deserve it. Once again, I want to apologize for making you feel that you could ever be anything less than my number one priority. I know it may be soon, but I’m really loving your spirit and I don’t want this thing to end.”

Upon becoming over whelmed with emotion, Desire was surprised to find a little something extra peaking out from his car.

“What is that?!”

There was nothing left to be said. She had seen the gift he was saving for last, because he thought she would love it more than anything else he had given her. So he walked to the car and pulled out the cutest tinniest Yorkie poo Desire had every seen in her life.

“Are you serious, right now?! Awwww!” Desire had no more words. She began to get emotional and let a few tears fall. She couldn’t stop smiling, because she finally felt the love that she so desperately searched for in men and women passed, and hoped she found it with
Klaus.

“What’s going on, here? I hope those are tears of joy.”

“Of course. Thank you, Baby!”

“You are so welcome. Now can we go inside?”

“Wiping happy tears from her face, she took Klaus’s hand and led him inside.  What came next was a night full of passion and ecstasy, far more intimate than either one of them ever experienced.

Desire: Part 9

Reminder: If this is your first time reading the Desire Series please make sure to READ IN ORDER. All parts can be found under SHORT STORIES under Desire.

Sheila, I told you I have to work tomorrow!…..That’s why I stayed home today; I wanted to make sure me you and Bobby spent time together. Since you’re always complaining that we never see each other.” Klaus was getting irritated with Sheila and her clinginess. He already canceled things with Desire, and was mad for it; taking it out on Sheila.

You act like we get to spend time together all the time! I’m only asking about tomorrow, because you say you want your son to see what a healthy marriage looks like. It’s not like one day out of the week is gonna do it for him.

If you didn’t plan on giving this your all; Why couldn’t we make plans to get divorced when I asked you about it?!

“Because, at the time, I was sure we could work this out.”

We probably could work this out if you were willing to try! But, you don’t even want to do that! The effort always has to come from me. Why is that, Klaus?!

Why are you sitting up here lying like that!”

Really, I’m lying right now?!” Sheila had tears in her eyes. She wanted so badly for their marriage to work; but Klaus seemed to refuse to put in any real effort. He assumed, but never knew he was the only man Sheila ever loved.

So, I guess because you pick one day out the F****** year to be with your wife and kid, that makes you a great husband and father?! Guess again. You are going to have to work hard at this just like you worked hard to get and keep your business. It’s not gonna come easy. You should know that by now!”

“Why do I even bother?! You’re gonna find something wrong with what ever I do any way. What’s the point?” Klaus felt he was giving it all he could. He loved Sheila, but he fell out of love with her a long time ago. His reason for staying was mainly his son, and Sheila was reliable. He knew she would take care of his house and his child just as he would. Also in his mind it was cheaper to keep her. There was no way he was willing to pay alimony.

“The point is, I’m tired of feeling like I’m working on us, when you could care less! I knew we were too young to get married, but I loved you! I was pregnant with your child and I loved you more than I loved myself!

What happened to us?”

“I don’t know what happened to you. I’m the same man you married.”

“I think you need to check again; because you’re nothing like the man I married! The man I married loved me and was there for me whenever I needed him. I don’t know who you are.” Sheila said while looking him up and down.

“Oh, okay since you don’t know who I am it won’t matter if I go!”

“Take yo a** on! You not doing me any favors!”

Bobby was in his room trying to block out all the screaming and arguing; something his parents did a lot of that past year. They believed they were doing him a favor by staying together, but all he wished they would do is get a divorce. He felt things would be better for them and for him if they just called it quits.


Ring…. Ring…Ring

“Hello? Who is this?”

“You deleted my number that quick baby? Damn!”

“This you, Klaus?”

“Yeah, who did you think it was?” Klaus was getting a little jealous, because Desire didn’t recognize it was him on the phone.

“Nobody in particular. I was sleep.”

“Oh, okay. Is it alright if I come over?”

“I thought you said you had some things to do at the office?”

“I did.”

“So? Uh…. What happened?”

” I got a colleague to take care of it for me. I wanted to take out my special girl.”

“Oh, now I’m your special girl. What happened a couple of hours ago; when we had plans to meet tonight and you cancelled on me because you had to do work that was more important than me?!”

“Desire, I don’t need this from you too.”

“What you mean me too?!”

Are you coming over here because your other b**** got something to do?!

“Why does it have to be all that?!”

“Baby, I’m only saying that work was getting on my nerves…..”

So you trying to say I’m getting on your nerves?!

“Who is this? I know this is not my beautiful Queen, Monique.”

“Oh yes it is. Your Queen is just getting tired of being second, third, fourth, and fifth! This is what happens when the Queen isn’t able to see her King because he cancels on her repeatedly!”

“Baby, I told you I’m sorry about that. Listen, I’m outside your house right now. Are you gonna let me in?”

“Depends….. You brought me something?”

“You gonna have to open the door to find out.”

“If I come to this door and I don’t see nothing in your hands, I’m slamming it in your face.”

“Baby, don’t be like that. Open the door! I promise I got something good waiting for you.”

“Okay, I’m comin.”  Desire took the time she needed to make herself presentable before letting Klaus in.

Knock… Knock… Knock

“Chill! I’m coming!” Desire was happy he came, but there was no way she was gonna show her excitement to see him. She couldn’t do that; then he would know he had her nose wide open for him. She had to continue to play the pissed off role so she could get what she wanted. She had no idea how long she was going to last, but she was willing to try.

Upon opening the door, she saw he had nothing in his handles.

“Hey, baby.”

“What did I say?”

“What you talking about?”

“Oh, now you got amnesia! You think I’m playing.” Desire had to let him know she wasn’t playing games.

“Baby, baby, baby! Wait!” Klaus tried to stop what was inevitable; the door being slammed in his face.

“Mahogany, you know I’m here for you.”

“I know. That’s why I’m trying to watch out for you; because I got yo back and  I know, you got mine.”

“I’m sorry you went through what you went through. I thank you for looking out. But I don’t think Klaus is anything like that.”
“Desire, you don’t know what this man is really like. The one good thing I have to say about him is, he has his own money. Did you ever find out what he does?”

“No. All I know is he’s the boss and can get time off when ever he needs it.”

“You telling me, ya’ll have been together for a little over a month now and he still hasn’t told you what he does?”

“Yeah. But he told me from the jump that he wanted to get to know me first before he tells me the inner most parts of his life.”

“Desire, what the f*** are you talking about?! You telling me his a** can’t even tell you where he works?! He at least knows that much about you!”

“I know. But, I’m trying to give him the time he needs to tell me when he’s ready.”

“I don’t know where you come from with this p**** s***! Grow some balls!” 

“Mahogany, can I do this the way I know how?”

“No! Because the men in Miami are a different breed, they nothing like the men you know. They cut throat!”

“Well, I guess it’s good for me that he’s not from Miami.”

“That don’t change a damn thing. He been here for a while, I’m sure he don picked up some of the ways.”

“You worry to much.”

“When you seeing him again?”

“Later tonight?”

“Where ya’ll going?”

“Damn, Momma.”
“Desire, just answer the question.”
“Well, we haven’t decided yet. But, I really just want to stay in.”

“There you go with yo fast a**?”

“I’m not being fast I just don’t want to go anywhere.”
“Like I said.”

“Whatever.”
“Well, expect me to drop on by. I wanna see what Mr. Klaus is all about.”
“Why?!”

“Because, I want to make sure he has the best intensions for my bestfriend.”

“Don’t you think I should have figured that out already?”
“No. He got yo nose wide open. So asking you to look at ya’lls relationship logically, is something you’re not capable of at the current moment. By this point I’m sure you’ve been hypnotized by the d***.”

 

“Ha, ha, ha, you so funny; Not.”
“Whatever. I’m not saying to be funny. I just know how this thing works.”

“Mahogany, can I give you a call back?!”

Klaus was on the other end and Desire was hot and bothered thinking about the night before.
“He’s on the other end; isn’t he?”

“How you know?”

“Because you sounding a little to happy to get off the phone. Go ahead and talk to him. But let him know, I want to meet him tonight.”

 

“Okay, Ma.”

Mahogany and Desire’s relationship reflected that of sisters. They hadn’t known each other for long, but that didn’t matter because their souls felt as if they had known each other forever.


 

Ending the phone call with Mahogany, she clicked over to speaker to her (a.k.a beautiful stranger) Klaus.

“Hey baby! Are we still on for tonight?” 

“That’s why I’m calling. I’m not gonna be able to make it tonight.”

“What happened?”

“Nothing. I just have to take care of some business.”
“What’s really going on?”

“I told you Desire. I have to take care of some business. These are the type of things that come with owning a multi-million dollar company.” 

“I understand you have to work, but this is the third time you’ve cancelled on me this week!”

“Baby, I’m so sorry. Best believe I’m gonna make it up to you.”

“What are you gonna do?” Desire was very disappointed, but soon forgot about it because if there was anything Klaus was good at,  it was making up.

“First we’re going to take a little vacation. I know you need it and so do I.”

“Where are we going?”
“It won’t matter because we’ll be in the room most of the time. All I wanna do is make love to you, and spoil you in every way I know how.”

“And I want you too. But when are we gonna go out and have some fun? It seems like all we’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks, is have sex.”

“I thought you were enjoying yourself.”
“Don’t get me wrong; I am. I just thought this would be something more than a sex thing.”
“That’s not what this is.”

“Coulda fooled me. Every time you come over here, we end up having sex.”

“That’s only because I’m attracted to you and you’re attracted to me.”
“I get that. But, you haven’t taken me any where since, what?….. About two weeks ago.”

“In do time. You know my business keeps me busy. I’m sorry I’m not able to give you the time you deserve. But I really like you, and I think something special could come from the chemistry we have.”
“I like you too. But, I’m not about to be sitting here waiting for you to show up, and you bail just when I think I’m gonna see you!”
“Patience, Monique. You will be seeing me real soon. I just have to take care of this first. 

How about we make plans for tomorrow?”

“Let’s play it by ear. I might have plans tomorrow.”

“Okay. Well, give me a call when you’re free.”

“No. How about you do that?”

“Alright, I’ll call you tomorrow.”

“Okay, I look forward to hearing from you.”
Desire was pissed. She thought something was really starting to takeoff between the two of them. But every time she thought he was allowing her to get closer, he would pull back by disappearing for a couple of days at a time. But little did she know, there was a really good reason he wasn’t spending as much time with her as he did before. She planned on doing some digging for herself. She felt it was time to get to know more about him than he was telling her. So she did what any woman in a situation like hers would have done; she made a plan to follow him home the next time he came over.

Desire: Part 7

Reminder: If this is your first time reading the Desire Series please make sure to READ IN ORDER. All parts can be found under SHORT STORIES under Desire.

Weeks passed; Desire and Klaus got really close over a short amount of time. Neither one of them understood what was happening. They just knew they didn’t want to be apart, not even  for a second. There was something special about Desire, Klaus couldn’t quite put his finger on; something that made her stand out from the rest of the many women who tried tying him down over the years. The type of connection they shared, to a degree was deeper then any connection either one of them ever shared with one person.

Ring… Ring… Ring…

“Hello?”
“Desire, where you been girl?!”

“Mahogany, stop that. You act like we didn’t just see each other a couple days ago.”

“That’s because we haven’t. I don’t know if you’ve noticed; but you haven’t been to work in over a week.”

“It hasn’t been that long! Has it?”

“Desire the last time I saw you it was Saturday! And today’s Thursday.”

“Mahogany, stop being so dramatic.”

“I’m not being dramatic. Is it that new guy of yours that doesn’t want you working here anymore?” Mahogany got angry at the thought of Klaus; since the two started dating Desire seemingly put her friendship with Mahogany on the back burner, and she blamed him for that.

“He doesn’t want me to continue to work there; but that isn’t the reason I haven’t been to work, lately.”

“So what is?”

“To be honest, I just have been having so much fun with Klaus and decided to take a couple days off.”

“You coulda let a b**** know.”

“You right, I’m sorry.”

“That’s okay. So when do you come back?”

“Not sure. But when I do, you will be the first to know.”

“Monique?” Desire knew from Mahogany’s use of her real first name that this conversation was changing from playful to serious.

“Yeah, Sis, What’s up?”

“Please make sure that if you do stop dancing, it’s your decision and not his. Just remember this thing you have with him is fairly new. Also, even if ya’ll happen to be together for years and you think you know him; never do anything that you haven’t come to a decision about first. Follow your own mind; make sure you’re taken care of.”

“Girl, why are you being so serious?”

“Because I know the Signs.”

“What, ‘Signs?”

“A woman in love.”

“Who said I was in love?”

“No one had too. Like I said the signs are there.”

“I’m not in love! I just like spending time with him.”

“Monique, there is nothing wrong with being in love. I just want you to make sure he feels the same way about you. Because, I know what it’s like to love someone. Doing everything they ask or tell you to do, all because you love them.”

“Who you talking about? Rich?”

“Nah. I’m talking about the guy who would have been my first child’s father.”

“First child? You where pregnant before?”

“Yeah. Two times before.”

“Who was the guy? Some older guy I met at the club, when I was 16.”

“What the f***, you doing in a club that young?!”

“You know I didn’t have the easiest start in life. If I wanted to eat I had to find a way to make money; and stripping was the only thing a b**** could do to make some fast cash.”

“I’m surprised they couldn’t tell you were just a baby.”

“Desire, you know how it is. The better you look, the more you can bring in. They weren’t thinking about how old I was. They were thinking about how much money I could bring in. Besides it was my own fault.”

“I understand that. But you had adults around you who should have cared enough to know where you were. Maybe if they were more concerned with their daughters whereabouts, you wouldn’t have met that awful man.”

“What’s done is done. There’s no way to change what happened. All I can do is learn from it, and I did. That’s why I’m hoping I can save you from going through what I went through.”

“Was it the owner of the club?”

“No. It was actually his brother. I should have known never to get with anyone like him. But when you’re young you do some dumb s***.”

“What was so bad about him?”

“At first, nothing. He was the perfect gentleman. Then as time started to pass and I lowered my guard; it seemed like he went from bad to worse. Sometimes that could happen in a couple of seconds. I never knew what version of him to expect.

There were times he would beat me because I didn’t look at him the way he thought I should be. There were even times he made me have sex with other men because he was too lazy to get a job. Let me remind you; he had a job when we got together. But seemed to get ‘let go’ 6 months after us being together. I know now, the only reason he had a job was because he was waiting for easy prey like me to come a long. And that all happened because I let my love for him, over power the love I had for myself.”

“I hear you. I can’t believe you went through so much; and your not even thirty yet.”

“Yeah, I would have been 17 with my first child. But, he made me get an abortion because he wasn’t sure if the baby was his or one of the random men he had me sleeping with, for cash. Truth be told I really wish I wouldn’t have let him pressure me to get that abortion. Because, I don’t see children as accidents; they’re blessings.”

“Now, I understand why you were so happy when you got pregnant.”

“Yeah, I thought I wouldn’t be able to conceive again. One, because God gifted me a child and I had the audacity to send that little blessing back, and two, the person who did the abortion wasn’t a real doctor. She was one of my ex’s friends wife.”

“And you let her operate on you?!”

“I thought she was a doctor! After all that’s what he told me.”

“I can’t blame you, you were a baby. How were you suppose to know?”

Poem

Wild and Free

Day in and day out, I try to live you, breathe you.

But to no avail I haven’t figured you out.

I swear I’ve experienced you before. Will I have the chance to experience you again?

Without you everything seems pointless. I know there has to be more.

This can’t be it! There’s so much more to do, so much more to see.

Is it my fault because I’m to scary.

Others have had the chance to bask in your essence. Will that time ever come for me?

Or is it my destiny to never know you again? Or am I being too hasty?

Do you have plans for me? I have faith that things will work them self out.

But incase they don’t, I will never stop trying to figure you out.

Have you ever felt like this about anything in your life? If so please leave a comment stating what it was and how you moved past it.

Good Morning,

Happy Friday!!

Today is the day for a lot of people to be off from their jobs, but this is the time for me to start working, seeing as I work mainly weekends and not weekdays, that’s one thing that really sucks about working retail.

I was thinking about bringing something else to this blog. I won’t be writing about it all the time, but I wanted to write about my time working as  cashier for a really large retail chain. I know a lot of my other posts mention situations I’ve been in while working their. But I would like to get a little more in depth.

I’m choosing to put this type of content out their because I know their are other people out here who have gone or are going through the same things I’ve experienced or still experience working with the public. I understand this won’t resonate with some, but there will be other things on this blog that you have the possibility of finding interest in. For example: I just wrote a blog on my dedication to doing the OMAD diet, or my post about love and relationships, or the different things that happen to certain people because the way they look. Those are only a few of the things I offer on this blog. One other thing this blog has, are stories. The stories that I have on here Are Desire, Learned Lessons, and Life. These stories are works in progress. If you would like to read them in their entirety please leave a comment and I will add the latest addition I have to these stories.

I plan to bring a lot more to this blog. This just like me, is a work in progress. I hope you enjoy every word, post, and story I put out for you to consume because that is my main concern; is that you will love it!!

As Always…….

Thanks for Reading!!!

      Have you ever worked some where and been working there so long til everyone knows you? Well, that’s me at my job. I get so annoyed with that because people come in with stank attitudes believing you should be giving them A1 service, when they barely acknowledge you’re standing right there in front of them. I want to be treated like a human being too. I get tired of people thinking that they can do say and treat a worker any kind of way. I understand that it has everything to do with manners, but that is something that I can’t continue to deal with. For one, I’m a very respectful person that treats people how I would want them to treat me. But do you think that matters? Hell nah, It doesn’t!

        When I say I’m done with working with the general public, I’m done! I need something better. I have way too many qualifications to be treated as if I’m dumb and just don’t know any better. What I’ve realized is, I’m the one standing in my own way. I could have found something a lot better years ago, but didn’t because I was too afraid of starting something new. Now I feel, I have to start something better and new so I can continue to grow. I’m not going to let the devil win this battle. I’m going to keep on keeping on! There is nothing that is going to stop me from striving to live my dreams!

       Sorry for the rant, but that’s what kind of week I’ve been having. I found out great news just to find out terrible news the same day. But I hope you enjoyed. If there’s something you want to see on this blog, let me know and I’ll do my best to make it happen. 

                                  Happy Reading!!!
