Our Relationship is OVER!!!

Sorry guys, no weekend post today.

I know this is deeply personal, but the only way I know how to handle my feelings without crumbling is to write.

I found out something towards the end of last week that has irreparably broken our relationship. I've left and I'm currently having withdrawal symptoms. What I found out wouldn't have been a big deal if it was just one time that it happened. I would have been able to live with it. I WAS living with it. It was just once, so I could overlook it and move on. But twice?! In less than one week?! After all the praises I've shouted? After all the noise I made?! After spending so much time. I feel used, abused, and so very stupid. But I'll be fine. I chose to walk away.

The 3 reasons NOT to have "Our" Song

Hey yo homies yo yo!

You guys know I like to give you Dating and Relationships Advice every now and then (e.g. Why Pet Names are Bad, Reasons to get Married, the Best Time to Break Up - which is around now btw).

So here I am listening to me and Cakes' song on my phone. I always like listening to it on the highest volume because it just evokes the passion in the song. I don't know if I told you, but a couple of weeks before our wedding, we had no clue what we wanted to dance to for our First Dance. I wanted Michael Jackson (wait, don't laugh... he has a very nice love song called "I Just Can't Stop Loving You"), and he wanted boring K-Ci and Jojo (nuh uh, the whole world has danced to their songs). I wanted a song that was beautiful, passionate, AND A DUET! (Sometimes I take this Girl Power stuff to the extreme :p) Anyways, we just couldn't agree on a song for a while. I mean, Cakes would say "yeah okay" to some of my choices, but I could just tell he wasn't really into them. I wanted our wedding to be OUR wedding, so I really wanted his input on a lot of things. Less than a month to the wedding... in fact, it was maybe 2 or 3 weeks to the wedding, we watched The Best Man Holiday, and in the funeral scene (where I didn't cry - clap for me) the most gorgeous song was featured: As by Marsha Ambrosius and Anthony Hamilton. It's a remake of an equally fun song, Always by Steve Wonder. I knew that THAT was our song immediately (although sha, shortly afterward my other husband Johnny aka John Legend almost made us change our minds with All of Me).

Okay, what does all this have to do with the title of this post? Well, let me tell you...

Good morning Mr. Speaker, Panel of Judges, Accurate Time Keeper, Co-debaters, and esteemed audience. I am here to oppose the motion that "All Couples Should have Our Song."

Berry Lovely Links

I started this series last week, and I got some good feedback (thanks for your comments). I must say I thought it would be super easy to get a bunch interesting or cool links for you to read, but for the life of me, it took more effort than I expected. Anyways, I think the links for today are funny or enlightening, so grab a drink and sip while you enjoy :)

My Number 1 Problem with Beyonce

*DISCLAIMER #1* I don't hate Beyonce.

*DISCLAIMER #2* I haven't always had problems with Beyonce.

*DISCLAIMER #3* I'm not trying to step on any toes, so please don't call the Beygency on me. They're scary.

Now that that's out of the way, let me continue with this rant of sorts.

When Destiny's Child first came out in the 1990's, they were arguably my favorite female group in the world! Apart from a few songs which I downright hated, most of their music were my JAMS!!! Their Survivor album stands as one of my favorite albums of all time. It's just hit after hit after hit! I was a little irritated when they shook up the group (removing Letoya and LaTavia); but whatever, as long as the music kept coming, I was all good.

The biggest draw of Destiny's Child to me was Beyonce. I mean, she was pretty, she could dance, she had a booty, she was thick (thick of the 90s and 00s is not the same thick of today o), I hated the way she spoke, but overall, I reeeeeeeeeeeally liked her. In fact, I would pretend that I was her in my bedroom. I tried to mimic her modulations in all the songs, and I was just awed by her. It goes without saying that when she went solo, I was excited. Naughty Girl from her Dangerously in Love album remains on my Favorite Songs list forever and ever and ever!
