Shernita’s Blog From Prague 5

Things have been really wonderful here in Prague. It’s countdown time to my return home and I know yall miss me (don’t front). I’ve been having a magical time with some really magical people. The history and beauty of this place is breathtaking. The parks here are to die for. I don’t think there’s a park in America that can compare to any of the parks here. I’ve visited Petcin, Vysehrad and Stromovka park. Stunning! (Pics on facebook soon)

I’ve also had a blast participating in Stare Offs. Yes, Stare Offs. I’ve been trying to see how long I can stare back at someone or how many different faces I can make. People have been smiling back lately, which makes it more fun. However, today was a first in the history of Shernita’s Shenanigans. Today, I participating in my first Growl Off. Yes, a Growl Off. What is a Growl Off you say? Well let me tell you…

So I’m minding my sweet lil business walking down the street and a small boy stares me up and down then proceeds to run towards me arms open wide. I thought he was going to hug me but at the last minute he decides to swipe my leg. Then he turns around, stops and growls at me. Now, you know Grandmas ain’t raise no punk, and shit I’m from BK Who da fuck want war????… So I growl back. This growling match continues for what seemed to be like 5 long minutes. Then his older sister comes to the door confused as hell, to the point where she runs back inside screaming. Then his mother comes to the door and is clearly baffled at this duel that’s occurring. I was a lil nervous but I couldn’t back down not when I was this far in the game. So the growling continues until I am laid out on the sidewalk growling and cracking up and the lil boy has now run away smiling. Andddddd Scene!

I know this sounds like a Charlie Murphy True Hollywood Story but I promise this really happened. Fa Real… there were witnesses. Ask if you don’t believe me.. fa real…

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!

Old folks need to ACT RIGHT!

2010 is almost here and I know everyone is all gung ho about new years resolutions. So, Im gonna share one of mine with you…

One of my resolutions is to continue to restrain from kicking an older persons ass!

Now I know it sounds a little rude and disrespectful but lets be real, yall know yall feel the same way.

Old folks think they run the town tonight, last night.. shit.. every night since Christ was born. They think that because they’ve been on this earth a little longer than some of us, they can do whatever the hell they want and say whatever the hell they want. And Im here to let it be known; it aint going down like that. Yes I have respect for my elders, but sometimes they just get a little out of hand.

For example, Im in the supermarket waiting on line to pay, and because I didn’t move forward in a timely manner (according to her old ass), she decided not only to skip me, but to assault me with her baggage. Then she gonna have the nerve to talk shit. I told old girl straight up, ” Baby boo you bumped me, but one hit from me, and your ass will end up admitted to the nearest hospital. So slow ya role”. Was I wrong for that? I don’t think so. I could have just attacked her like I initially planned on.

They always talk shit about how us “young’ns” don’t have respect and boy how times have changed. Man, fuck that. Last time I checked, before we were 25, 65, or 105, we are all human first. What happened to basic and common courtesy and respect for a fellow human being? I don’t give a damn what you been through or what you’re going through now. You’re gonna have to respect me as well or else things are gonna get crazy. You’re never too old to get checked. Who gon check me boo?.. SHERNITA will!

So in the meantime, I’ll continue to keep it cool for 2010. But make sure and warn your out of control elders that if they cross me, things could get severe. I aint the one.
