Shernita’s Blog from Prague 6

Pictures can’t fully describe how beautiful this country is. It really is a sight to see. I’m truly thankful to be able to witness it.

Another beautiful thing here in Prague, is Love. There is love everywhere. Young and old. Couples are everywhere, openly displaying how they feel for each other. From kisses, to warm embraces to holding hands. It’s here  in Prague. It’s really awesome to see elderly couples appearing to be as much in love now as they were when they were first married. Yes, married. I’ve seen a lot of wedding bands. A lot.  No one is ashamed to let the world know that they are in a relationship, and they are proud to be “taken”.

I must say it’s a nice change from NYC. I notice that there’s a lot less PDA (Public Displays of Affection ) going on in the states. I feel like it’s frowned upon. It makes me wonder if NYC has got it all wrong….

My future husband and I will be very wealthy (just putting that into the Universe) , and we will definitely come to Prague to join in on the PDA action. Or shit, we’ll get that PDA poppin right in NYC.. who knows…

Yummy isn’t it?

Shernita’s Blog from Prague 1

I’ve been in Prague for just almost a week now and I’m having a blast. I’ve been extremely busy since I touched down. From rehearsals, to performances, to teaching classes, to meet and greets, to parties, I’ve done it in less than a week. All while dealing with a bit of jetlag (that kicked in a day later lol), a lil bit of sickness (that kicked in on the plane ride here) and just getting used to things here (that’s still kickin in )

Everyone here is extremeeellyyy nice to me and everyone speaks English! Thank God! Czech language is hard as hell, but trust and believe Im working on it.

So I know yall are wondering where the hell is Prague, what are the differences between New York and Prague and what the hell is it all about???! Lucky for you, I’m going to tell you….

Prague is the capital of Czech Republic. It’s pretty much the center of Europe as Germany, Poland and Austria surround it. I found out that Czechoslovakia is non existent and it’s been this way for about 20 years now since the end of Communism ( I had no clue and thank God). There is Czech Republic and there is Slovakia. 2 totally different countries. Makes me wonder what the hell were my teachers teaching or was I just not paying attention (probably a lil of both)

Prague is an amazingly beautiful city. Every building looks luxurious. (Pics coming soon) However, in such a beautiful city, most people are .. sour (for lack of a better word) There isn’t much smiling or joy in the people here.  Everyone seems madd tight all the time. I was told it’s due to the communism in the past. Hopefully my beautiful self and beautiful energy will change some of that. There also isn’t much diversity. So far I’ve seen 4 black children, and 2 black women (including myself)!

Czech’s money is in Korunas(krowns), they use military time, you need a key to get in and out of every building, apartments are called “flats”, power outlets are circular, you have to push a button to flush the toilet, you have to hold the shower head to get ya wash on, cobble stone streets everywhere, there’s cookie crisp cereal, H & M, McDonalds, Burger King, KFC , and an Asian population (of course)!!!

So! I know that was a lot of information at once and I know you loved it! More Gumbo from Prague coming reallll soon!!!!  Subscribe so you can stay updated on my adventures from Prague!

Busy? Uh huh Yea me too

Busy: adj 1: actively or fully engaged or occupied

Above is the definition of the word “busy”; Actively or fully engaged or occupied. If we think about it, aren’t we always engaged or occupied in something?; thinking, moving, creating, resting etc. However, despite being occupied in all these things we are never too “busy” to work,take care of ourselves,stay in contact with friends and family etc. Why?

Priority:n 1: status established in order of importance or urgency,Something afforded or deserving prior attention. The afformentioned things are all priorities. Things deserving prior attention. We will always make time to do what’s important to us. We will always make time to see that our needs are met. Sure everyone’s priorities differ and so do there places in our lives.

Sorry Webster but The Dictionary of ummm our REAL DAMN LIVES says:

Busy: v 1. You’re not on my list of priorities, 2. it’s not that I don’t have time I just won’t make any for you, 3. plain and simple you’re just not that important enough to me right now

So please, don’t tell me you’ve been busy because in all actuality, so has everyone else.

Is it still poppin?

A few years ago, I was having a conversation with my aunt while we were getting ready to go out.  So amongst the semi girly chit chat in front of the mirror, she went in her purse, and pulled out something I had never seen in the purse of a woman that age….

Something so astounding that my jaw dropped to the floor ( not really but kinda).

No it wasn’t a weapon.

No it wasn’t a vibrator ( I could have dealt with that).

It was…

It was…..

LIPGLOSS!!!

I was stunned.

My aunt is like 60 something years old.

Since then, one question has plagued my mind: How old is too old to be wearing lipgloss? I mean, is there some sort of age range for lipgloss? Or can one wear lipgloss for the rest of her life? And at what age should we being wearing lipstick? It’s all very confusing.

Now don’t get me wrong.. My aunt is fly as hell! But when she pulled that lipgloss out, I honestly didn’t know what to do. I mean you really can’t go wrong with a shiny lip.. well unless it looks like you put the whole tube on….. but that’s a whole ‘notha blog.

How long can our lipgloss be poppin?

Let me know your thoughts…..
