Ramblings of an Urban Jawn: I dunno how to do this so Im just gonna do it.... -

ramblingsofanurbanjawn:

Today my apartment caught on fire and I lost everything.

Well, I dont want to lie. My two favorite pieces of furniture (two end tables) and most of my books/dvds/music all managed to be salvageable. I think. Once the fire trucks left and I dealt with Red Cross, I had to dip. I just couldnt be…

Do something.

Because of Reasons. Because of Reasons.


I’m not a Jill Scott fan but this is one of my favorite songs in the world and it is singing my life right now. It’s on repeat because of reasons and has now become the ringtone of the reason so that when the phone rings, I’ll be reminded and I won’t answer. 



Slowly surely, 
I walk away from 
that old desperate and dazed love 
caught up in the maze of love 
the crazy craze of love 
thought it was good 
thought it was real 
thought it was 
but it wasn’t love 

I just don’t know 
Where i should go 
So 
Slowly surely 
I walk away from 
self-serving 
undeserving 
constantly hurting me love 
deserting me love 
you said, I said, we said 
but 

Slowly surely 
I walk away from 
confusing love 
misusing love 
abusing love 
this can’t be 

Slowly surely 
I walk away from 
self serving 
undeserving 
constantly hurting me love 

I just don’t know 
where I should go 
No 
I just don’t know 
know, know, know 
Where I should go 
so 

Slowly surely 
I walk away from 
that old desperate and dazed love 
caught up in the maze of love 
the crazy craze of love 

thought it was good 
thought it was real 
thought it was 
but it wasn’t love 

I just don’t know where to go 
So 

Slowly surely 
I walk away from 
I walk away from 
Slowly surely 
I walk away from love 
Oh 
slowlyy, surely one step at a time 
but surely 
I will pass the old love aside 
and love me 
slowly, 
surely I walk away from 
slowly surely I walk away from desperating love 
caught up in the maze love 
crazy crazy craze of love 
slowly surely, I walk away from [repeat 5 times]
Slooooooowly Suuuuuuurely, slowly surely

“Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere.” — Paulo Coehlo (via loveyourchaos)

If Romney won Roe Vs. Wade, Planned Parenthood, Marriage equality, social programs for the poor etc. etc. etc…. these things would have been done away with. That’s a reason to be upset. With Obama, you get the same black guy you got before… again.  The same one. you know? From before? The one that didn’t make the country implode. The one that killed Osama Bin Laden (Shit y’all were so amped to happen). The one that ended one war and has set plans to end another. Is he perfect? No. But he’s not the fucking anti-christ, you doucheheads. Just say you don’t like the guy and stop acting like you just voted in the Sith. I don’t know what a Sith is but I’m pretty sure people say they are bad guys. Let me use something I’m familiar with stop acting like you voted the Backstreet Boys over NSYNC. :) 

In conclusion, Shut the fuck up now. Just stop. 

Like this.
What the fuck??? Do they really believe this shit? You lived thorough 8 years of GWB you can survive 4 more years of OBama, you overdramatic pile of hair.

The White People Mourning Romney tumblr was funny for like a day and then it started to get really sad. Then it started to get really depressing. Then it started to get really disgusting. 

I’m so glad I don’t know these people or anyone like them.

Basically, dude is looking for a way out of this engagement and Romney gave him one. “Yeah, baby I’m scares too… we should call the wedding off coz how can we get straight married when Obama is making everybody get gay married to aborted babies? It’s just not right. So when can I get the ring back?”
