I don't get you Anonymous. You leave comments all over the place. Some rude, some valid, some completely dumb. But I cant judge you. I have no reference point. Most of the time I scour comments from blogs I like. If someone says something interesting, I check their blog out and see what they have to offer. If someone says something dumb, I do the same. I can easily gage if the person is a moron or not. But you, Anonymous, you are sly. I have no way of gaging you. So I'm just going to have to assume you are a scaredy-cat punk who, when put to the test wouldn't be able to back up an ounce of what you dish.

Sorry Anonymous, but you lose. And when you do ever decide to leave a comment on my blog, just know that you will not be taken seriously.

Blacks and Browns

Ok Party People

Aside from the flat hair, what's wrong with this picture? I have fallen into the rut of blacks and browns. In a feeble attempt at shaking things up, I usually throw on a scarf with colour. Thats just not enough.

What else can be done?

Most Bad Ass Moment of 2008

One week before the holiday break I sent an email to the staff which read as follows:

Memo: To all Staff

Please do not buy me crap for Christmas.

Thank you and Happy Holidays

Director of Studies

Step It Up a Notch

Ok, I realize that its Christmas Eve and there are better things to do than write in a blog, but here's the thing. Its time to step things up a notch. And I mean now. I'm Jump starting my New Year's Resolutions and I'm writing something. Nothing brilliant, but something. No more blog stalking. No more commenting. No more head full of ideas, but no time to write. No More.

Bad Ass means getting shit done. Bad Ass means thinking up what can and can't be done and making it happen. Organizing is good, but it cant impede actual action.

The Self Proclaimed Bad Ass revolves around action.

Stepping it up a notch. That's what 2008 will be all about.

And you? What can you do to Step It Up a Notch?

The Introduction

I am Bad Ass.
This is not an exercise in self improvement.

It’s the God Damn Truth.

Now some people’s reaction to this would be “She’s arrogant”. Fine. I can cross you off my list, because it means you don’t get it. It means you are insecure, are easily intimidated, and (worst of all) have never given yourself a Bad Ass moment. I’m here to find others like me. The ones that make things happen. The ones that inspire, but don’t need to conspire to do it.

Now, I don’t mind occasionally dragging people around, but I cannot continue to surround myself with people who don’t bring anything to the table. I am continually inundated with those I refer to as ‘the drainers’. The ones who all want to be like me, but would never have the guts to do or say the things I do, or (again even worse) never even have it occur to them to say or do the things I do.

Now, here is where we get to arrogance. I don’t consider myself an arrogant person. I DO NOT think I’m God, I DO NOT think I know everything, and I DO NOT boss people around for the power trip or because I can.

But, and this is a very strong BUT, what I cannot stand are indecisive people who cant handle their shit. And don’t give me any victim stories, because I’ve had 7 major surgeries, come back from the dead, grew up as a Black girl in affluent New England (people, you have NO IDEA WHAT THAT’S LIKE), been beaten by the police and nameless other after-school specials…And I’m still BAD ASS.

So when people sit around and complain and find excuses, don’t mind me while I take over. Because I haven’t got time to waste. Wasting time for me is spent on the sofa or at the sea/mountains on vacation in my down time. When things are on, I need results, I need solutions, I need NEW IDEAS. And what I’ve come to realize is that I also need motivation. I cant do this on my own. I need companions, I need leaders, I need inspiration.

So from one Self Proclaimed Bad Ass to another…Any Ideas?
