#notmyprince 

Mine will be the only wedding I consider royal! The only Prince we acknowledge was from Minnesota! Colonists! Why is this still a thing? Symbolic decadence in the face of abject poverty. Countries that have irreconcilable histories. Potential that was stamped out before it could sprout from the seed. We will never know what could have been. Xamayca lost.

Glenn’s Not Dead… and neither am I!

950e5394a84043a2c32a01abaa3e9e3c

Nope. Not dead, just a little listless and a lot lazy. A reader requested some scifi so I’m re-blogging my very first ever post. I turned this in as a real-life college assignment and got an A! Gotta love the liberal education system! Glenn’s alive, I’m alive and I hope this will stave off you hungry walkers until next time!

As you read this, millions are at risk but are blissfully unaware. As you read these lines those millions are preoccupied with their YouTube and Facebook accounts; with their sensationalized newspaper headlines and they are content with their bustling and for the time-being satisfying lives. Each of them is only acutely aware of an indescribable danger. We feel it when we turn on the news and see ravaged people in other countries suffering other fates, from other diseases; but not here, and not us. Not in our hometowns and not to our neighbors. We have institutes and precautionary systems with haughty acronyms and emergency alarms so we need not worry. However, a threat waits on the vanguard of disaster, one for which we have no plans, no precautions. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) should include in its archives the danger that an outbreak of Zombism (the condition of being a zombie) would pose and take measures to protect United States Citizens if ever reanimated corpses infected with a flesh-eating, mind-controlling virus were to rise up against us.

Roze Goes … time traveling to this blog’s birth. Paradox, much?

Hi … My Name is Nancy.

Negative, Nancy (In my best Sean Connery voice). All throughout middle and high school, people called me Daria. It would be years before I properly understood the reference. And yes. I am very much like her, olive-green jacket, army boots and all.

Except college has no lockers.

By the way this is an absolutely thrilling show about the travails of a young woman finding herself in the midst of consumerism,  pop culture, and peer pressure.

BLAH BLAH BLAH  Daria = cartoon Roze!!!

That being said, there always seems to be this cloud following me. And instead of being lined with silver  it occasionally rains asbestos. [I HATE clouds!!!]

Why is my life such a fart, you ask? {I have no idea how to punctuate that. Kudos to you, public school.} Mostly for a series of reasons I have concocted entirely on my own. It’s like A Beautiful Mind, except instead of making up secret operatives and omnipresent best friends, I hallucinate reasons NOT to be awesome. And then I ask strangers why they can’t see them. {If you haven’t seen this movie, EXIT! BLOG! NOW!!!}

Here’s a few of my hallucinations:

1. EVERYONE around me is in a relationship. … FALSE. It’s just hard to ignore obnoxious Siamese twins that spam Instagram with their organ-sharing gaiety.

2. The government is slowly stealing hours from the day. … FALSE. There are 24 of them, I counted once while “studying” for a final.

4. Discipline and perseverance will guarantee success in academia. … FALSE. … School is a trap engineered by alien scientists to stop us from building pyramids and communing with our ancestors.

… no wait, that was a real hallucination. I’m so sleepy…

5. I will never accumulate enough awesomeness in my mortal body to rival the likes of Beyoncé, Oprah, and Olivia Pope. … TRUE. [Can’t really contest that.] GAWD!! Scandal is cocaine and Shonda Rhimes is my PUSHER!!!

6. Professors think I’m only taking one class. HOW DARE your class need 6 textbooks!! I have 4 other like-minded instructors. I spend more time a day reading than Bobby Brown does trying to make his teeth touch! I have calluses on the index finger and thumb of my right hand, like I work out with q-tip dumbbells!

I can’t really think of anything else…

I keep asking my peers for bits of motivation, hoping I’ll stumble upon some golden truth that will cause all my chakras to align and I’ll ascend into heaven like Ray Lewis after the Superbowl. But that won’t happen. I won’t become a productive super saiyan overnight.

AAARGGHH!!! I just wanna wake up awesome one day.

The score will read Roze: 1 Life: 0. I currently reads an imaginary number for me. Like negative “i” or something as equally Ludacris. {That man will FOREVER taint the spelling of that word. Him and Fabolous}

I forget what I’m talking about. I’m tired! Bye!

… Apparently I over-use the word awesome. I’m getting help.

While You Were Out…

I’m like a baby. Well, more like a peek-a-boo enthusiast. Once I put my hands over my eyes, the universe implodes into an unfathomable white hole. At least that’s what I think happens when I neglect to post for a while. I’m sure that’s not the case at all. Your lives probably continue; reluctantly checking your emails, being scolded at Starbucks when you call a ‘tall’ a ‘small’, and washing the whites you’ve saved up for three months.  Rather than regaling you with the ins and outs of my obviously posh life fill of celebrity and adventure, I’ll do what I’m good at; making lists. My life for the last couple of months in pictures and videos.

1…. met Rosario Dawson. She’s pretty bad-ass!

2. Homecoming 2012. I’m the girl in the suit!

I’m like a 2012 Grace Jones!

3. I’m in love with this song and video! It’s like Tumblr had a baby with Rihanna and gave birth on VEVO!

4. I’m actually doing really well in school this semester and am  hoping to finish this semester off strong, although senioritis is a B!$H! On the upside, the semester’s coming swiftly to an end!

5. .. been playing a lot lately with bow ties and androgyny. The perks of being a baldie!

6. There was this guy, and he ran for President, but he didn’t quite win. This guy was his Public Relations Coordinator. Explains itself.

YAY!!! Romney – Ryan!!!

7. I’ve been getting better and waking up early to start productive and fulfilling days. They start off with yoga, meditation, and yogurt and end promptly with that. I dropped a post. Like to read it, here it goes!

https://rozewittaz.wordpress.com/2012/11/16/ambition-wale-ft-rick-ross-and-meek-mill/

… and then a little interpretive dance…

8. I have truly come into form. I’m a genuine Jamaican! [insert stereotype about multiple jobs here] Two jobs and I’m searching for a third. I have goals. Non-free goals. Those non-free goals require money, American money. BUT when I get off, it looks something like this…

Um… I can’t think of anything else right now. I’ve missed you terribly. How come you don’t call me anymore!?

 

Things I’ve Been Pondering…

As always I have a lot on the brain. This, unfortunately, is no different from any of the other trillions of seconds of my life since it started. However, I haven’t posted in a while and have a lot to get off my chest. I’m going to gently detain two birds with one humane trap. I’ll let you in on the thoughts bouncing around in my head like pinball – or more accurately skee-ball (and not even making the biggest circle: you know the one that yields the fewest points) played by an octopus with ADD. (Disclaimer: ADD and ADHD are serious illne- look, a SQUIRREL!!!!)

Here goes…

1. In typical young-people style, I have a tendency to think that this, right here, *points at current spot* is the end; somehow my judgement gets clouded by Tumblr and high-waisted skirts and I think that this stage in my life will last forever. (Not entirely my fault though, sometimes it goes by SUPER slow). I’m realizing it isn’t. I have to be wary of my decision-making now in order to not jeopardize my later AND remember that there’s better to come.

2. I CANT WAIT FOR SUMMER !!!!!

This song is bouncing around in there…

3. I am STOCKING UP on high-waisted shorts!!! So far the count is at three: a light-wash denim, a darker washed denim, and an ashy black pair (shh don’t tell the others that i might like the black ones the most! “I don’t love you them MORE, I just love them DIFFERENT, see?”)

4. It’s when you want to do you, that interested persons come out of the wood works. “I’m working on Roze right now, and she’s really selfish sooo… ” I’m enjoying my me-time, or maybe I’m just to busy to notice I’m alone. (sadface)

And this one…

5. I’m not painfully impoverished anymore! (super yay)

6. Trayvon Martin… *sigh* I won’t get into it.

7. Also liking this song a lot…


8. I’ve been thinking a lot about love and my relationships in the future. What will they look like? Who will I share my life with? Interracial babies perhaps?

9. School may very well be the death of me. learning that what doesn’t kill you…. may just make you  kill yourself. (Not me though, I like food too much!) Oh well, someone recently told me that it doesn’t matter how long my education takes, as long as i finish and better myself. I have so many dreams and I feel like I don’t have enough life to live out all my potential. I need two personal assistants and a clone.

10. I thrift like it’s going out of style! (wait…*counts on fingers*) I’ll make a vid on my most recent stuff.

11. Shirt-cutting season is upon us and I will be snipping up some masterpieces sooner than later. be on the lookout!

I likes me some Wale…


12. I’ve been working on my style a lot. And by that I don’t just mean manner of dress. my speech, my personal presentation, making sure that my outsides reflect my insides. I wanna be a masterpiece. However, on the clothing front, I PROMISE to stop being a punk and wear the awesome stuff I buy instead of just dreaming about chances to debut them.

13. NEED another job! like yesterday!!!

I don’t know what else. Lot happening to me right now. I’m trying to keep my options open and prepare myself for all opportunities. i want this life full force!! (YOLO or some BS like that)

15 Random Things About ME!

1. I’ve been obsessed with blazers since High School. Whenever my collection grows I feel like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

2. I adopted this new baby earlier this week. Welcome to the family boo!

my newest addition…

3. My nose is almost ALWAYS stuffy! (I’m usually running’ on one nostril)

4. I hate when people smooth their eyebrows with their own spit. (Not that they would use anyone else’s, but it makes your brows smell… ew)

5. I’m on a constant quest for $5 movies at Wal-mart and Target. SERIOUSLY!

6. I pick my nose. JUDGE ME NOT!!!

7. Every time I feel the least bit sick I Google and Web-MD my symptoms! They always turn up the same three results:      Lyme Disease, cancer (of some sort), or pregnancy…

8. I have PRETTY BIG lady feet! (I WILL NOT disclose the size)

9. I just bought THESE!!! I’ve been promising to work out more, specifically running, and I needed the right tools!

10. One of my goals is to own a greater variety of shoes. (ranging in formality, color, texture, and material; most of mine are just black :/ )

11.  Sometimes my inner dialogue is louder than the conversation I’m actually having.

12.  For me, nail polish is considered for “special occasions” because I can’t ever keep em’ nice. They’re usually kept very short with a clear polish.

13. I have big-city dreams and I PROMISE to fulfill them!

14. I STAY getting hit on by old creepers. I guess I’m special… yay  😦

15. Last but not least: There are some people who I miss terribly but will never tell. I have pride issues.
