Shernita + Kanye West=(insert indescribable amazing feeling here)

Now, if you know me, then you know how I feel about Kanye West. Hands down, he’s my favorite artist. The only artist in which I have every one of his albums. Fuck what you heard, Kanye is the shit. Period.  And he can do no wrong in my eyes (sue me) I promise you, since I heard Power and Power RMX, I listen to them every day. Those 2 songs ( along with some Tye Tribett, Donald Lawrence and Rick Ross) get me through my rough days. (yes I have rough days too, i think they come along ever so often just to remind me that I am in fact human)

So when I found out that I was auditioning for Kanye West, I thought it was a hoax.

Then… Kanye walks in the audition. God help me.

All 130 of us girls, danced for our lives. Every trick in the book, every move we ever learned, every bit… was left on the dance floor. 130 dropped to 45. Then the waiting….and more waiting…. When I got the news, that me, Shernita Q. Anderson aka Shernitasofly.. would be dancing with Kanye West for an audience of approximately 12 million people, I was speechless. Words could not describe it. And on top of that, this is the first performance my entire family was able to watch.

The next few days would be full of pointed toes, last minute changes and smiles. We got a small glimpse into the world of a misunderstood genius. Honestly, not just because he’s an inspiration to me but Kanye is amazing, genuine and yes, he IS a nice guy. He’s a visionary…very involved in all aspects of his brand and he’s funny. Very funny actually.

Never in a million years would I dream that not only would I be performing with one of my biggest inspirations, but I’d get the chance to actually get to know him a little bit.  And I’m thankful to live in an age where thanks to technology, I am etched in history.. forever.

Here are the links…Im pretty obvious to see but just in case.. Im the only chocolate bald girl lol In Power, Im always on your left and in Runaway.. Im center.

Never Give Up…Your mind can’t even fathom what the Universe has in store for you. Hold tight…its coming….

Power

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.

Everybody Calm Down, its not Summer Just Yet

So Im sure we’ve all noticed that the temperatures are rising. YAY! It is definitely time to put the bubble triple fat goose northface fur fleece chincilla coats away!

However, some type of jacket is STILL necessary. I mean , let’s be real… it gets damn chilly at night! There would be no need to walk around with your shoulders all high and hands in your pockets if you would have packed some type of light long sleeved outerwear.

Got it? Good!

So now that we’ve discussed the arms, lets talk about the legs. Shorts? Really? I mean.. I guess I could deal with a bermuda short… then again.. No I can’t. And actually, I WON’T! Bare legs are not an option yet, cover them joints up. Your leg hairs are standing straight up because its type cool outside. Chill out.

And lastly, on to the feet… FLIP FLOPS??!! FA REAL?!! Thats just plain nonsense. If you have to wear a leather, you should NOT have your toes out! That’s just plain ridiculous. I mean come one people!!! We are all excited to finally have warm weather but there’s no need to jump the gun.

In conclusion, it will be officially warm soon. No need to worry. So in the meantime, calm that ass down and dress appropriately. Thanks.

I know you were hungry…. It was late but it was good wasn’t it?

How To Spot a Bum

Often times, when we see people on the streets or subways begging for food or money, the word “Bum” comes to mind. However, not all homeless people are bums and not all bums are homeless.  In my opinion, a homeless person is one who has fallen on hard times and  doesn’t have a place to live.

However, A bum, is a person who just WON’T get their damn lives together. I know, I know, you’re not sure if you’ve ever seen a Bum in real life. Im here to let you know… THE JIG IS UP! You see them and deal with them every single day. They’re  hiding in plain sight, lurking next to you every step you take.

For example…

That family member who’s  ALWAYS sleeping on ya couch, then asking to borrow a dollar?.. yea the jig is up, they’re a BUM.

Those guys on the corner when you leave  in the morning, who are in the exact same spot when you return in the evening?……. Yea, they’re BUMS.

That woman who asks you for 14 cent everyday?……………… Mmmhmm.

That person who always wants to go out to eat, but never got no money when the bill comes?…………….. Yup.

The 9000 year old man who insists on hollering at you?……………….. Yea, he’s one them too.

Now friends, these are just a few examples of the Bumtasticness going on in the world today. Feel free to comment and add your own scenarios. In the meantime, be on the lookout. Bums comes in all shapes and sizes, from Broadway Junction to Broadway and 42nd , from Central Park to Park Place, from Coney Island to Rikers Island,  Bums get around.

So be careful, cuz they’re  Bumming all over the city.. and Beyond.

Delicious wasn’t it?

There’s always room for more Gumbo.
