Now after the event,... we stayed to clean up and hooked up with the security in the building. The coolest thing happened. The security team invited us up to the penthouse (25th floor which is still under construction). We brought wine and hung out on the terrace. To our surprise,...Twista and Kanye West were giving a concert to around 5,000 people below. It was amazing!
this is the beautiful city that i was born and raised in,...HOT-lanta! this was the view from the terrace of the penthouse
this was the atlanta penthouse that we got to party in. can you believe that someone will pay over $600,000 to live here? crazy.

"MY FAMILY" This is my grandfather & mother with their children, before my mom was born. When you look at a picture like that, when you know what you came from,....you know, you have/must to live up to the dream and make a difference. You must represent. (Check out Grandmama Rosa,...I come from a long line of DIVAS)
Today,...I got off my butt to vote. It feels weird. I don't think I view things like most people. All I kept thinking about was my ancestors that faught so hard for me to be able to do this. So many beaten, intimidated and killed for this one simple, yet HUGE RIGHT!
I didn't think in terms of Democrat or Republican,...Nor Black or White Candidate. Well,... I guess I did think of the Black candidates, but it wasn't about who was Black or White. I wondered if the Black Candidates considered their positions or even the fact that they could run for office,..."AN HONOR!" Every candidate should feel that way but considering the plight of Blacks,...I wondered if they would carry that honor to the office with them and never ignore the needs of the people and try to carry the torch of our ancestors struggles to better the community. I wondered if they had gotten complacent with their positions, (like a lot of people) and just "colllecting a check." I wondered if they took their/our skin color for granted as a "guaranteed vote."
It's amazing really. When I was younger, I didn't really care,...unless MTV did. The older I get with medical bills, taxes, social securiy,etc. becoming an issue, and oh yeah,... let's not forget BUSH,...the more I CARE. It's really affecting me. Everything is. Why is that? I guess that is why they say; the older ,the wiser. I would kill to be this wise,...when I was 12. (I could pull a do- over)
Anyway,...I could go on. The ramblings are out of control. The deal is,...I VOTED TODAY! I have got to make a difference. The bullshit of this world, this country, this state,..this county,...this city,...EEEWWWW AND G.W.,....MUST END!

She proceeds to tell me how some guy told her how worthless she was and he was wasting his time. He said horrible things to hurt her. Being the sweet, naive and loving person she is,....SHE TOOK IT! And cried!
This totally pissed me off because I know we all have moments of insecurity but it's one thing to end a relationship and it's another to go for the juggs! You know I am all about the GIRL POWER! So this has really affected me. (like the cherub of justice, huh?)
Ladies, and anyone else who feels stepped on and weak,.....
DON'T LET A MAN (HU-MAN OR EVIL SPIRIT) HAVE YOUR POWER,...THE POWER GOD GAVE YOU. YOU ARE GOD'S KID! GOD HAS NO WORTHLESS CHILDREN. DON'T GIVE ANY MAN (HU-MAN OR EVIL SPIRIT) YOUR POWER! YOU OWN IT!!! YOU LOVE IT!!!! YOU LIVE IT!!!! AND NEVER LET IT GO. IT IS YOUR CONNECTION TO GOD!!! GOD LOVES YOU,... NO MATTER WHAT!!
Didn't mean to preach but all of us, including myself, needs to be reminded of this truth. Always DEPEND ON GOD! He never lets you down.

My best friend, Aaron is gone to L.A. for a whole month. It's really gonna suck. He got an apartment (for free) for the time he will be there. Cool, hunh? Anyway, he says he thinks he is staying in the building that they filmed Melrose Place in. This is the view from the pool. How cool is he? I know,..which is why he and Tara are the best friends.
