Surviving a Long Distance Relationship

One of the craziest myths I've ever run into is the belief that Long Distance Relationships are destined to fail. I once talked to a recently married friend  who was dating her boyfriend (now hubby) for over four years and exclaimed that if he had moved away, they would've broken because there was no way that it would work. I thought it was funny, since I've been with my boyfriend for almost three years now and 85% of our relationship has been long distance. That's why I always laugh when I hear about people talking about preparing for Dunksgiving and breaking up before college. Keeping a LDR working is a lot of work, but it's not impossible if two people are actually willing to commit to it (you know, like any other relationship). Here are just a few of the things you need to have if you're going to make your LDR work.

Sh*t People Say About My Natural Hair

My fluffy mane in all of its glory
I've been natural for about three years, and I've been happy about my decision for the most part.  Although I love my black cotton mane, not everyone seems to like it. I  have gotten some negative feedback from people around me about it. I take it mostly with a grain of salt, but decided it would be fun to list them all- kind of like a late add on to the "Sh*t People Say to Naturals" tag on YouTube in blog form. Here are just a few of the comments I've had about my natural hair.

Divergent Is Better Than I Expected

Image Source:

When I first saw the trailer for Divergent, I was not impressed. The trailer did not appeal to me because it left me confused about the general plot of the movie. It appeared similar to The Hunger Games, and I was not interested in watching a copycat movie. After scanning through the plot of Divergent on Wikipedia (I know it wasn't the best site), I decided to give  Divergent a chance.

4 Minute "Whatcha Doin Today" MV

4 minute is back! They teamed up with Brave Sound to produce a pop single with a hint of jazz. "Whatcha Doing Today," is a good song, but it doesn't leave me with the same affect as their classic hit "Is It Poppin." The video is fun and it similar to the crazy style Psy uses in his videos. I really like each of the girls' look in the video and of course Hyuna stands out as she always does.

Breaking News! 2NE1 Has Broken Up

We are sad to report that one k-pop's biggest girl groups is splitting up. CL spoke to us exclusively that she no longer gets along with the other members of the group. "It's hard," CL said. "But I've outgrown the group." CL later stated that she will begin her own solo career. No word yet from the members.

My Music Binge

I can binge on music for days and lately these  are the little gems that have been stuck on replay in my house. And yes, there are a few non English tracks in the mix, but I dare you to give them all a spin before casting them off to the side. Believe me, you'll  thank me later.

The Internet -DontCha

The first time I heard Syd the Kyd sing, I wasn't too thrilled. She had a nice voice, yea. But there was nothing that really brought me into her music oto stick with it. Now she's apart of The Internet and their song "DontCha" is just what I needed to want more from her. I love the flow, the lyrics, and her voice is perfect for a song like this. I know it's kind of old, but if you haven't heard of this song, you will love it.
