100 Truths

Sidenote: I created this Note for my FB Page almost two hours ago. Just a nice way for my readers over there to get to know me a bit better. But nooooo. FB wants to act all shitty and won't let me publish this as a Note. Grrr. So, that's why it's here. This is my way of saving it so that when I'm allowed access to post it as a Note I can just copy-and-paste. Cause ain't no way I'm doing this all over again. Nah.

I'm actually doing this while at work. That's not good, huh? Ah well. Got this from a blog I follow called Taynement (www.taynement.blogspot.com). She also has a pop culture site - www.taynement.com). 

Here we go!

1. Last drink: Water
2. Last phone call: My sister.
3. Last text message: Nic (www.whitneynicjames.com)
4. Last song you listened to: Dog Days Are Over, Pentatonix
5. Last time you cried: Last week. Reason" *ahem* I caught up on American Idol Top 10 selection online. Ryan went backstage to bring out the next person to make it through to the following week's live show. It was Candice Glover. She was beyond herself. Ecstatic. Jumping up and down with complete joy. And it was warranted, too. You see, she auditioned for Idol three times. THREE EFFIN' TIMES. How someone with her talent not have gone through the first time was beyond me. And last year when she got cut during Hollywood Round, I was HEATED. It's like, what in the world were the Idol producers looking for, though? Anywho, she performed her congratulatory song, and of course, slayed. The judges gave her a standing ovation, the crowd was going insane and even Ryan couldn't contain his awe. Candice was soaking everything in. It was only when Randy started proclaiming his love for Candice and her talent that she finally broke down and cried. And I, too, began to cry. I usually don't cry at stuff like this. Like my heart would swell but that's about as far as it would go. Something in me felt what Candice was experiencing. The whole scene made me realize that your dream will eventually come true. Your accolades will eventually come your way. Just never give up. Continue to strive. Have the focus and determination to believe in yourself and keep moving towards your goal. Eventually, you will be rewarded at the end. I have to remind myself every blessed day because sometimes I forget or don't even try. Hence the crying.
