WORDS FROM MOOK- THE GRIND

real
Names Mook, Just a baby 19 years young. I’m not satisfied with life because I want much more. I’m Satisfied with the progression.
Just sitting around one day watching my high school years fly by. Watching the same guy/girl basically wearing the same shit as the last person. So I said fuck it I got nothing to lose.
I started a Clothing Line June of 07. It hasn’t been that long and I’ve produce a solid number of garments. Working 24/7 non-stop trying to make it to the top still to this day. You know what “they” say, hard work pays off right. =/
I just wish my camera was working. Maybe I could get some decent promo pictures, but I work with what life hands me.

A huge point that lead me to believe that creating a line was meant for me was the first time someone ever copped a tee from me. I had the big cool aid smile =) lol. F..&E Clothing is now in a boutique in Williamsburg. First and only store for now. There’s no feeling like seeing your creation on display, doing well! Maybe that’s how parents feel when their kid is achieving greatness. I don’t know. I’m on cloud NINE and I feel like I’ll never come down.

In the future I hope to be the man responsible for styling the biggest names in the entertainment business. Yea I can see that happening pretty soon. Haha

IM CHASING MY DREAMS, AND IM RIGHT BEHIND THEM!
Nothing ventured, nothing gained remember that.

WORDS FROM $ MOORE- A FATTER A$$

sae

I AM NOT AN EMOTIONAL MAN, I NEVER CRY AND I SMILE RARELY. BUT TODAY MY HEART FELT IT, A GUN SHOT. I FELL FROM THE CLOUDS (A PLACE WHERE MY HEAD RESIDES OFTEN) AND ITS HERE THAT I AM BROKEN. MY EX/ MY FUTURE HAS MOVED ON AND NOW MY HOPES OF ONCE HOLDING HER AGAIN ARE LEFT TO BE DREAMS OF A REALITY NEVER TO BE KNOWN. FRIENDSHIP IS MY OPTION BUT LOVE WON’T LET ME PLAY THE SIDEKICK AND PRIDE WON’T LET ME SHAKE THE NEXT NIGGA’S HAND AS I STEP OUT THE WAY. SO GOODBYE IS MY CHOICE, A LONELY ONE BUT A PRIDEFUL ONE INDEED, I HAVE TO LOOK MYSELF IN THE MIRROR TOMORROW AND KNOW I WAS A G RIGHT UP TO THE VERY END, SO EVEN AS HER MEMORY AND MY SHATTERED DREAMS OF LOVING HER DRIFT SLOWLY FROM MY MIND THE KNOWLEDGE THAT I WAS A MAN (NO TEARS AND ALL SMILES) WILL COMFORT ME DURING THIS LIFETIME WITHOUT HER. WHAT WE WERE IS NOW BURRIED AND GONE, R.I.P. 330. TODAY BLOW’D AND TOMORROWS FUCKED, AND IT IS THIS BLEEK OUTLOOK THAT WILL REMAIN UNTIL MUCH LIKE MY “LOVE LOST” I MOVE FORWARD AND ONWARD TO A PRETTIER FACE AND A FATTER ASS… SORRY IM STILL LOOKIN FOR THE HIGH ROAD.

WORDS FROM HOLLEY MONELLE- DARE TO DREAM

holley

2 months ago, I resigned from my day job. I knew tough financial times were among us. I’d heard the countless news stories about the impending recession. *shrug* I didn’t care. Well, I cared – but not enough to let it affect one of the most important decisions I’d ever make.

I was 24 making close to 60k a year, living on my own, no kids, and no financial worries but despite how things appeared on the surface – I was unhappy as hell. After almost 4 years with my company, it almost pained me to go to work in the morning and I couldn’t get through a day without a migraine. The reality is, sometimes you just outgrow things. Don’t get me wrong, I had two of the most awesome bosses on the planet but I wasn’t passionate about the work I was doing. Growing up, we’re taught that we should get “good jobs” so that we can provide for ourselves and our families. But why kill yourself doing a job you hate when you can make a living doing what you love? So – boom! I decided I’d do just that.

Two years prior, I walked into my college radio station and fell in love. After my first time on air, I knew it was what I’d devote myself to – it was the one thing I could wake up to every morning and never grow tired of. When the time was right, I’d take the chance. And two years later, I would.

After doing months of research, putting together a list of 100+ radio stations across 30+ states that I’d be willing to relocate to and mailing off an aircheck package to each station on the list, I quit my stable job during a recession to pursue a career in radio at a time where the broadcasting industry was at its worst, lol. Honestly – I’ve never been happier. I’ve learned to throw caution to the wind and I believe that you can fly without a safety net; so I’m doing just that. I haven’t landed the position that will catapult my career just yet – but I will.

The most important lesson I’ve learned through this process is that you can have anything thing you want, as long as you want it bad enough and pursue it as if you do.

Never let anyone dictate your steps. It is more than ok to dream; go for yours!

WORDS FROM B. FLY- UNTITLED

brianna21

I’d much rather be seduced by your mental stimulation and verbal intercourse Instead of the incessant thoughts of animalistic copulation that once warped my mind
Perhaps you saw
But for me it was the blind leading the blind
Amnesic, as we sometimes are when the slither of lust crosses our minds
I totally ignored your lisp

WORDS FROM ASSATA- HAPPY?

assatasayscom

So I’m thinking about giving up.  I’ve never really been a quitter.  If I know something is TOO hard, I just won’t ever start it.  But once I get going, I try to finish.  And it’s not ever so tough for me.  But that’s because I always have a plan.  And now I don’t.  I’m almost done with my degree, I have a decent job, a great apartment in the works, I’m completely healthy… I’ve gotten this far.  Great! Now what?  When you finish junior high, there’s high school.  Then there’s college.  Then what?  I love my job but I refuse to spend the next 30 years of my life working for the city.  I don’t see it happening but I don’t see anything else happening either.  I don’t have a plan.  So why not just clock out?  You know… stay at the 9 to 5.  Work with a bunch of angry people doing unimportant work until it’s time to retire. Or should I leap?  Do something completely outrageous and unpredictable.  Something not safe.  Attempt to save the world.  Or just do what will make me happy?  THIS is what brings on my anxiety attacks and it sucks.

I just want to be happy.  I have to leap.

WORDS FROM SHANA B- UNTITLED

tashanav3

Staring at Manhattan from my balcony (Or is that the Bronx?)
And I think…
One-What’s going on in Twitter world?…Technology has always distracted me from the real world …starting with the sims when I was 12, then aim became popular, then xanga had me writing journal entries to total strangers, myspace and facebook–serving pictures and status updates daily, then came the blogs…I can’t picture life without it ,then there’s my blackberry which I’d be sick for days if I lost it, and now Twitter…I might as well be a mute, because who needs a voice when you have 2 thumbs and a couple fingers?

Two-My life right now? Can someone explain it to me please? Lord knows I’m grateful for everything I have and I’m so not complaining cause life has been good to me…Yes, I’ve had my downs but that just makes me appreciate my ups even more…I’ve realized no one is perfect, believe that. I may have the lifestyle I want but there’s so much more to it…there’s so much more to LIFE period and I’m still trying to find that something to complete me… or someone maybe? Don’t know but I’m looking.

Signed,
Living. will Love one day. Laughing cause life’s too short for the tears…SB.
