indexHey Fyah Family, this week has been full of stuff. Good stuff, bad stuff and all that lies in between. For the bad and in-between I found some internet inspiration. I hope you enjoy it as well.

1) My younger sister is a boss. Caring, funny and smart, she is the true super-star and heart of my family. She also happens to have special needs. When I read about Aaron Philip in the NY Times it automatically thought of her and her bravery and strength navigating this world that sadly does not appreciate her skills and contributions.  Read this story about Aaron and check and follow his tumblr.

2) I came across this listing of photographs depicting  love/love stories and even my jaded icebox of a heart went all warm and mushy. Awwww 🙂

3) So, life as a grad student is  something I think you have to experience to believe. Readings, grades, assignments, schedules, a shit load more readings and assignments, working as a TA, working on a thesis, looking for a job that pays cus this tuition is expensive, more readings and assignments, weight gain, and then it all seems worth it  for the times when I am reminded that it is pretty great to be a grad student. Yes, it actually is that frenetic. I was sitting at my desk staring at about 6 student emails about something or the other  and during one of my Facebook breaks , I came across this hilariously revealing post.  Fellow grad schoolers or recent grads, let me know if this resonates.

Have a great weekend!

Music Wednesday – Amy Winehouse

It’s quite a feat for an album to be more than bearable if forced to listen to it all the way through. Back to Black is one of those albums. It’s been on repeat for the morning commutes recently and I want to share some of my favorites.

1. Back to Black

2 Me and Mr. Jones

3. Love is a Losing Games

Happy Hump Day!

Music Wednesday +1 – Stephen Marley

Been in a mellow mood. Seasons changing, pace picking up with work and school so I try to spend my down-time as relaxed as possible.  Hope you enjoy.

1. No Cigarette Smoking featuring the fabulous Melanie Fiona

2. Hey Baby featuring Mos Def

3. Someone to Love

 

The Real Deal

Every now and then some shit goes down in your life that shows you who your real friends are. I can honestly say that I have been blessed with amazing friends. For me, when times are dark friends are a lighthouse, showing love and support.

Some are from kiddie days, knowing me before I had breasts and when my eyebrows grew wild like bush. Others came along at university: roomies, travel buddies, shopping partners, negotiating downtown clubs and project deadlines. Others have come along through my professional life and we bonded in an instant.

I want to thank you all for being so important in my life. Your love and support is appreciated always. Keep telling me how it is, keep urging me to calm down when I act up, keep being there for me.

My ride or die crew is strong, all of you are truly irreplaceable. I just hope that I can be as good to you as you are to me.

Signed sincerely, with love always,

Asha

Music Wednesday

These  three are my most played songs for for the last few weeks running( in that order too). I hope you enjoy as much as I have.  One just might actually be my new ringtone! 🙂

I highly recommend Stacy, awesome album overall but this song speaks to me in particular.

Do you want some money baby? How about some chicken wings?

The video isn’t my favorite, but yes Beyonce, I  do like to party!

I came across this post a few weeks ago and was smizing at it’s sincere frankness, I too am a big sister and can totally relate. The comments under the article though, you may need to take a seat, or ignore them like I always tell myself I should.

DC, I see you! I think that some Caribbean islands are quite veggie friendly            ( more accurately pescatarain friendly) because of the influence of  Rastafari
