The following are questions others have asked me in the past. More to come.

*k*

What’s your favorite method of shopping?
Online. I don’t like going to the shops to look and buy unless I know exactly what I am looking for.

What is your zodiac sign?
Virgo.

Would you leave your home country for the one you love?
After much prayer and if we were for certain getting married, yes.

What’s your favorite dessert?
Doughnuts. I seriously, probably could eat an entire box of Krispy Kreme…by the dozen. Turtle ice cream pie is another favorite.

Do you have phobias?
I have a phobia of spiders and snakes. I hate seeing either one.

How would you like to be remembered?
I want to be remembered as a woman who always kept her word.

What do you like to do on a rainy day?
Sleep. Haha.

Do you believe in aliens?
I’m an alien. So, yes, I do. 🙂

Do you care what other people think of you?
To a certain extent, but only if it is because of my integrity. My integrity is more important to me than a reputation. I have a nonchalant approach most of the time when it comes to people’s opinion about me. In the end, people are going to think what they want to and they have that right. It’s not up to me to try and change their opinion. If they don’t like me, chances are I don’t care enough to even realize it.

What is your idea of a romantic evening?
I like to keep it simple and not so elaborate. The two of us listening to chillout or jazz music while drinking the finest wine–the entire bottle. We wouldn’t need to say one word. Our eyes would do the talking.

If you were to give someone a tour of your hometown, where would you take them first?
I would take them to the Civil Rights Institute. I think anyone who comes to Birmingham should go since the Civil Rights movement began here. Afterwards, I would take them to one of the many stellar restaurants in my city to discuss the impact of the movement over a wonderful meal.

What can’t be bought with money?
Love. Well…some people have to buy it. *laughs*

If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?
Racism. It’s such an ugly thing!

What are you obsessed with?
Music. Definitely. It’s almost like a drug for me.

What kind of guy do you NOT like?
I don’t like guys who use harsh, profane language. It doesn’t do anything for the listener or the conversation. I also don’t like guys who need help with approaching me because they come off as being weak. I like confidence. Asking my friends to “put in a word for you” is a surefire way for you to get the boot. Just approach me even if you think I will reject you. I don’t bite. *laughs* Sensitive/spoiled men are a major turn-off, too.

Blog No One Reads

While I don’t have an anonymous blog, the thoughts conveyed in the following post are the same thoughts I’ve had before.

KindaAnonymous

It’s strange to have a blog that no one reads. I’ve had a few blogs, but none of them were entirely anonymous, so I always had to write through a certain lens. I’d write every entry, imagining how every friend with a link might read it. I was restricted. I’m free here. I’m as anonymous as you can get with detailed blog updates on the internet now-a-days. I could write some very personal thoughts. I could share sexual stories. I could write about how I really feel about some people. I could share intelligent ideas that might be slightly controversial. I could let you know my real opinion during all of those times I agreed to disagree, said I wouldn’t say anymore, told them I’d remain neutral, or didn’t say it was and didn’t say it wasn’t what I thought. Or, I could just share some mundane insight I made…

Music Monday: (Love) It’s About Time

jamie-cullum_01-17-14_7_52d97ecc14525

It’s another Music Monday post, and you know what that means: it’s the first Monday of another month. (March came so fast!)

Surprisingly, I’ve yet to include a jazz song as part of my assorted Music Monday compilation. Somewhere in between listening to electronic dance, foreign pop, and contemporary christian music, I often listen to different styles of jazz by jazz singers, old and new. (It’s the genre I prefer next to chillout.)

There isn’t much I want to say about this inspiring love song performed by English jazz-pop singer, Jamie Cullum. I won’t even mention how or when I came across this breezy melody. The disappointing downside to this post? I can’t find the video of the audio anywhere like I was able to once before. All I get in return of the search are uploaded covers by people who are not Jamie Cullum. But I think for this exceptional case, posting the lyrics will do perfectly fine.

It’s About Time by Jamie Cullum

Walking down to the water’s edge
Where I have been before
If I don’t find my love sometime
I’m walking out that door

Some may come and some may go
But no one seems to be
The person I’ve been searching for
The one who’s meant for me

Biding my time, trying to find a heart that’s lonely
Looking for her, my love my one and only
Maybe I’ll dream tonight about the girl who’ll be coming my way
So I’ll take this chance and celebrate the day

When I’m making my way through an open door
I’ve got some love and so much more
And I’m ready to make someone mine
Making my way through an open door
I’ve got some love and so much more
And I’ll find her ’cause it’s about time

You try too hard and it feels just like
You’re running on thin air
Why does luck happen by surprise
If you don’t really care

The past is gone the flames are out
From fires that have burned
New ideals and different thoughts
From lessons I have learned

Biding my time, trying to find a heart that’s lonely
Looking for her, my love my one and only
Maybe I’ll dream, tonight about the girl who’ll be coming my way
So I’ll take this chance and celebrate the day

When I’m making my way through an open door
I’ve got some love and so much more
And I’m ready to make someone mine
Making my way through an open door
I’ve got some love and so much more
And I’ll find her ’cause it’s about time

Got the feeling this could take a pretty long while
To find that smile
Put my faith in another piece of good advice
Well I tried that twice
Waiting for a little something more
To inspire, take me higher

And I’m ready to make someone mine
Making my way through an open door
I’ve got some love and so much more
And I’ll find her ’cause it’s about time
It’s about time
