When I tell someone
Deep down how I feel inside
I do so, without pride.
~~Haiku luv, CC~~
It’s been a rough week at work
Deadlines and drama and a sprinkling of jerks
Taking it out on you is unkind
I’m sorry, please forgive me this weird state of mind ❤🐼:)
Make no mistake, this song is not CC singing. I’ve made mistake made mistakes and lived through so much that I’m “a ghost when I walk in, Holy spirit when I walk out”..
Is this what we’re doing here? Because I’d really like to understand. Run me til I don’t want, luv, or respect you?
No, this song is one I wish was sung to me. With love poured out instead of hate; visceral instead of venomous. Like you.

If you have watched the Game of Thrones season 6 finale, were you blown away emotionally?
What amazing storytelling and suspense and emotion and love and hate and…forgiveness.
One of the things about this episode that grabbed me so fiercely was Light of the Seven. So different from the usual score, and so perfect that it was as crucial as the wildfire. Fire! Like literally.
If anyone doubts the power of music to tell a story, just don’t.
As one fan put it: “you know epic shit is going to happen when the episode starts with this music“
There is a scene in that silly movie Bruce Almighty, a scene that probably no one will remember, where Grace is sobbing in her bed and praying ‘God please help me let him go, please help me let him go’… She missed him in bed with her, after he had be such a d**k to her, living it up, taking her for granted and …..and CC wants you to know that if you too ever find yourself in that place….you can just walk over and shake her hand
How can you tell a story you haven’t lived? Study it.
How can you tell a story you’ll never understand?
Let whitewashed Hollywood determine that.
CC is extremely disappointed in Matt Damon. And not only because she watched that ridiculous movie “The Informant” (under duress!! 🚑 ⇝👉💪), but also because of the subliminal he represents.
She thought he was one of the “cool’ ones. Capable of objectivity and enlightenment. He’s starring in a show, on CC’s beloved HBO designed to give a break to a new star. What would the problem be?
And then this happened.
In one sentence, 20 seconds or less, he explained white male privilege better than any guilt piece, protest statement, video, police ‘incident’, or murder ever could. Read that again. Because CC means it. Culture is and has always been defined and communicated through its entertainment. It’s media. From the third world to the first.
What else drive values, merchandise, “norms”, and prejudices as much?
CC would empathize, but wouldn’t have the audacity to pretend to accurately dictate the truth of a white man’s emotions. Or a gay man. Or a Syrian woman. They would tell it better and we would all benefit. CC is optimistic though. For the past 6 weeks, minorities have ruled the box office. Asians and Indians are featured in prominent prime time roles. Shonda’s still Shonda and will not be shaken, and maybe, just maybe people are waking up.
So how can you tell a story you’ll never understand?
Let someone tell it who does.
Or better yet, be an artist, and find a way to create our own!

A first Valentino, out of nowhere. When CC got the call on this beauty I couldn’t believe it.
Not the bag, or the price….. both were amazing.
At first, with that price, I thought… just sell it. You know…all that dreamy stuff for the papaCrab and crablings futures..we can do this..we can do that.. and then I opened it.
And you know what? I will keep it just for me. My first Valentino. I earned it, why give it away?
Wish it well!!
I’m mad at you..But you’re still so hot.🐇
CC has always had a love for medicine. Not many people know this and CC has never really pursued it. Probably because she feels like this about test taking -> 😖😔
But this Saint James School of Medicine keeps popping up so randomly, with open houses in beautiful locations in the city. Although CC is not
sure how it found her…it is inspiring….
Med school options in Bonaire and Anguilla, no MCAT required, school next to unpolluted beaches and tranquility.
So many things can be done there.
And to be honest, who knows what the city still even holds for her?
CC is not sure she can save lives, but help heal them…. Who would think? 😷🎥
…Laugh with me Bae
