Shernita’s Blog from Prague 2

I love Prague. The weather is beautiful, the city is beautiful and I’m beautiful. What more could a girl ask for?

View from Paddle Boat on Vltava River

Things are definitely different here. The amount of cigarette smoking is killer! The jig is definitely down on that one. Imma need to find some sort of febreze situation, because me smelling like cigarettes is not popping. So you can run and tell dat.. homeboy.

Honestly, there aren’t much disappointments here except for how far behind this country is. It’s a shame. In the club, not only are girls wearing flats (God help us ) but they are rocking hard body to Jenny from the Block and Yeah by Usher! But even on a more serious note, the internet is sooo far behind here. I don’t understand how the internet isn’t the same anywhere I mean after all it is the WORLD WIDE WEB! WTF! I googled Kanye West (of course) and the first video that popped up is Stronger. WTF! Ole boy has a brand new album out Czech Republic!!! (ps I think I saw a poster of a Wyclef album posted in a music store) This jig continues to fall…

The stares that I get are absolutely astounding. I mean, people will stop and stare and stay staring as I pass. It’s the rudest thing but its also pretty flattering. (Thank you God for this beauty)

There aren’t many things open in the late night, which is something I’m definitely not used to and dogs are allowed everywhere and I do mean everywhere. Restaurants have treats and water bowls for the dogs when they come in lol. All in all, I’m having a blast and this is exactly what I needed. (Does booty drop for God)

Up next.. my sightseeing!!! Stay tuned!!

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.

…you did what? and I should respond how?

So I’m on the A train heading home, minding my business. I notice a guy with a sketch pad. He takes a seat. The he gets up and takes a seat 1 over from me. (This is when I knew the jig was up) Ole boy (aka older man) proceeds to start drawing me. Yes, he starts drawing me. Every time I look over, he looks down. What he doesn’t know is that my peripheral vision is poppin, so I caught his ass long time ago.

As I sat there, being semi stalked, this situation sparked some thoughts in my mind….

Back in the day, if a man did that, it would be considered romantic, nowadays its considered psycho. It also had me wondering if he was younger, would I have been flattered instead of freaked out?  The whole “courting” process nowadays is jacked up. As a female you’re either getting hissed at, called a bitch (because you’re not interested in said hollering party) or getting stalked.

What happened to the days when men acted like gentlemen? Like seriously females, when’s the last time a man actually said “Would you like to dance?” What happened to things like manners, respect and ummm … sanity?

I know times have changed, but chivalry (and mental stability) sure as hell aint dead. If you aint acting chivalrous or (mentally capable) , then keep it moving right on past me to a woman of low caliber or the G building; because like MC Lyte said.”I’m not having it, no I’m not having it.”

Im still wondering if I should have given ole boy with the sketch pad a chance. After all, he found something interesting about me and decided to try to preserve it on paper and in his mind. And really and truly, when someone takes the time to let you occupy their mental space, you should be thankful…

I guess I’ll never know about the A train sketch artist.. mainly because I got the hell up and got off the train….

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.
