Lol y’all are welcome for that! But that’s not what i wanted to tell y’all. I have a CRUSH!


I know y’all are extra excited!

But before i get into my crush, I’m gonna give y’all a little backstory! Now who’s really excited for this part?!


I know you all are!!!!!!!

Okay my backstory, When it comes to crushes I can be a little crazy…. And i know what you’re thinking, “Crazy how Kara?”



Lmao okay that’s enough! Crazy like… When i see a guy i think is attractive in the hallway or at the grocery store or something i’ll start planning our relationship together… Lol and don’t let me see you more than once I’ll be like, “Yep *nodds*…. God definitely wants us to be together” Lmao when i say it out loud it sounds crazier than it actually is. But okay that’s not the point.

Whenever i see a guy i want do this whole obsess over him without even knowing his name thing and it actually works in my getting the guy, again I get the guy without saying ANYTHING to him… I’m shy. Lol. But somehow just the power of desire gets the guy, or maybe if you stare at the long enough somehow they’ll feel a sense intrigue rather than fear and than approach me but in any case i get them! But after all that, the guy NEVER turns out to be who i thoughtImage

In one particular instance I fell in absolute love with this one young man that i knew was a deep philosophical thinker. And the way he walked I can’t explain it well enough to give it justice but he was just so cool to me! He wore his sunglasses inside and he always rolled his pants legs up like highwaters (I think that’s what they’re called) Anyways i thought he was the coolest thing since sliced ham, the bee’s knee’s!



I just wanted to know him, but of course i was too shy to just walk up and introduce myself! My roommate at the time was like “he’s the lamest kid i have ever seen, he looks like Urkel in the middle of a transformation to Stephon behind the scenes”. But i didn’t see it! I saw Stephon all day, like without talking to him i just knew in my heart he was different! So somehow or another we started sharing eye contact, causally waving hello, and saying hi when we would pass each other in the hallway. After months of that there was still no real conversation, until one day I was sitting down with my friends and he came and sat a paper machete chihuahua/donkey looking thing on my table, looking at it now it’s not that cute but at the time i was so excited! He didn’t even say anything when he sat it down he just looked me in my eyes handed it to me and walked off! Like it was just so…. AMAZING, SO COOL SO much like… Idk! I was just so astonished that one person could contain so much swag!


lmao. A few days after that we exchanged numbers, talked and i realized he wasn’t cool at all. He was cocky, always high, and not at all what i wanted. Long story short i moved on!

So i see a guy, i fantasize about the guy until i get him, i plan our futures together, me and the man i never met or talked to. My friends threaten to have me committed, and then if i do get the guy i play super hard to get! that’s my little routine.

Well there was the backstory so now to my main point!

I HAVE A CRUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I first spotted my future husband, but we’ll just call him my new boo for short lol in my class. He came in sat behind me and when i saw his dreads I instantly started picking out bridesmaids dresses and colors in my head. He didn’t say anything to me but i did ask him for the time because my phone died, and that is a HUGE step for me! *Pats myself on the back*. After class was over i was a little disappointed but i thought “Hey i have the whole semester”. Wednesday I realized we didn’t have just ONE class together but we had two! What are the odds? It was basically God saying “Yes Kara I made this one just for you… Enjoy.” But of course we still haven’t talked right? In the second class together we were paired in a group, and that was God saying “Check him out, How’d I do?” and of course i responded “God you outdid yourself this time!” Me and my new boo spoke a little bit but nothing major but the real climax of this story happened today! I sent a mass email to everyone in one of my classes because there is assignment due and i don’t have the book. Out of all 40 people, ONLY HIM REPLIED! I know right?!?! He must want me too?! He offered to let me use his book. After class he chased me down and


so we can meet so i can get the book from him.


Of course he could be gay, or have a chick, or have a fake leg, or maybe not at all interested in me and he’s just trying to be helpful. But maybe he looks at me and is like “Yeah… I want that one!”


In any case I told myself i was going to bust out of my shell this year and do what i want, get what i want, and live my life the way i want. So i gotta stop being passive with men and take charge, if he says no I’m sure I’ll start obsessing about the guy coming around the corner!

So….Aren’t y’all excited for me?!?!?!

I want to try dual forms, and i’m currently waiting for them to come in the mail from ebay, so before then I’ve been checking out sites that have diy nail art tutorials! If you’re interested maybe these sites can help you out! As soon as i get my nail kits i’ll show y’all how mine worked out



$5 Hairstyle


, , ,

Snapshot_20130831_3So after 8 grueling hours i finally finished braiding my hair! I’ve been wearing my fro and wigs since May and with classes and working A MILLION jobs i really needed something pretty fast and simple.

I did some pretty long box braids with hair i purchased at my beauty supply store. The hair was yaki kaneklon and cost $1.00 a bag and i got 4 of them in 1b and 1b/44 to add some highlights lol.

I moisturized my hair with a mixture of various oils and I also put the oil on the braiding hair to help it not tangle so much. The one thing I hate about this kinda of hair is the tangling it does. But for $1 what can you expect really? If you are a first time to doing box braids are using that type of hair just buy a extra bag more than what you think you need just in case you mess a bunch of it up from it tangling.

I burnt the ends and the hair is pretty long. It’ll last hopefully until the end of October but there’s a good chance i’ll take it down sooner just in case i get tired of them…



Lol i’m so used to changing my hair styles up I don’t know what to do with only have one style for awhile.

But anyways, That’s my 5 dollar hair style!If you have any questions or want a tutorial on how i achieved my $5 look let me know. And of course thank you for checking out my blog! Oh and sorry about how mmy boobs are all in the picture I just got off work and i didn’t have the energy to change!

Never a Follower!

Okay! I know i was on here the other day talking about how I wanted, no NEEDED A man, how my life would never be complete until i had myself a man, and baby. Then i got on facebook saw all these marriage pictures, and baby pictures and i was like… “I’m only 22, wth was i thinking?!”

I’ve always made fun of my mom for waiting centuries to get married and have a kid but i get it now. She didn’t want a ball and chain, and a whining kid, She wanted to shake her tail in the club, drink like there was no tomorrow, get home at foreday in the morning go to bed and then do it again the next day. And shot, I wanna do that too! I’m not old! I’m 22, yea my bones might be a LITTLE achy when i wake up the morning but that’s just the price you pay when you were out dancing all night long.

All this time I’ve spent searching for this fiance I need to be in the club getting it in before I’m too old to do it. And when i get old then I can settle down, get the man, the whiny kids, and all that like my mama did.

So!  No! I’m gonna enjoy my single-ness and childless-ness. I don’t have to answer to ANYONE. Whenever i wipe a baby’s butt I get paid for it! I can go wherever i want, flirt with whomever I want, and I don’t get in nearly as many arguments as i do when i have a man, or i’m with a child…

LOL moral of the story I have been TRIPPIN’ I’m finna enjoy my twenties until they are all done for, and then I’ll find me a nice man to settle down with, hopefully he’ll be rich, maybe a little older… too tired to wanna go out….. and can cook!

First day of class!


, , ,

Because I’m a professional college student today is my 5th first day of college…

Lol i hate to be one of those old bitter people, but it really is cute to see those Lil fishy’s in their Sundays best really trying to impress their fellow students. Little do they know they needa be worried about impressing their professors cause them short skirts and sagging jeans won’t get them anything but a bad reputation and academic probation.

I feel like I’ve done and seen most of the things done at school, i could probably write a book, but none of that is important now. Number one priority from this point on is to achieve the 4.0 gpa i should’ve gotten years ago, but instead i just HAD to attend every party that was thrown, every decorating for the party party, every let’s have a party to plan what kinda party we gonna throw party…. LOL surprisingly no one threw a study party! But not this year no more partying for me…. Well no partying sunday-wednesday…. Can’t cut it all out, don’t wanna go too crazy.

So of course in effort to be on team #4.0gpa i woke up 2 hours before class, i put my books and clothes out last night and i was ready! —–>fast forward to getting to campus 5 minutes before class because of the rain, waiting for forever for the bus, going to the wrong building, and completely missing my 10 o’clock class….

Lol but that’s okay, i may have started off rocky but i will graduate in December… Or maybe May…. Lmao but that’s not important, as long as it happens before 2015!
