Mama Moon!!

As Lil’ Kim would say “I been gone for a minute now I’m back with the jump off…”. I know I know I’ve been so freaking inconsistent lately, but I wasn’t in the right mind set to write, and I’ll get to that reason next week. BUT!!! I thought today would be the best day for my return! “Why?” you ask. Because any chance I get to talk about my momma is a good day to start writing again! So this post is dedicated to Mama Moon.

First and foremost I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to the lady that carried me in her tum tum. There have been times where I’ve written about my mom but what you guys don’t know is what an incredibly strong woman she is! Without my mom all of us would be lost! This woman is the key to our survival! Once a year or so my mom has to go away for a couple days for work and when I tell you we don’t know what to do with ourselves it’s not a joke. My dad would literally just be home sad waiting for my mom to get back. It’s like this man doesn’t know how to be a functioning adult man without her.

For me, my mom is my best friend. She’s the one person I can confide in and I know that she would totally judge the shit out of me but still love me! Honestly I do do some judge worthy shit and I’m cool with it and 95% if the time she’s cool with it too. My mom is my therapist, my doctor, my window shopping buddy that inevitability turns into actual shopping because we can’t control ourselves, partner in crime (just know if you ever see me speeding through a yellow light, that it’s my mom next to me yelling “GO GO GO GO!”), food aficionado and my number 1 fan. You know what the best part about this is, she pays for everything and all I have to do is drive her around… just kidding ok not really she mostly does pay for everything😁. But here’s one thing I don’t tell her enough (I’m sure this goes out to a lot of us) but Mom you are my fucking super hero and I love you so much! Without you I wouldn’t be half the woman I am today. I’m incredibly lucky to have you as my mother and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I love you Mum from the Moon and Back,

Mimi ( your favorite child. Don’t worry that other one already knows)

P.S. I also want to thank everyone that has kept reading my blog while I’ve been gone. I really appreciate you. I also have another page solely dedicated to my latest hobby (photography). So if you want to check out my photos the page is called Moon View and here’s the link ( Moon View ).

The List Of Things That Happened To Me Since The Last Time!

Guys so many things happened to me these past two weeks. Oh, where shall I begin. You know what, I haven’t done a list in so long I think it is time. I shall call it The list of things that happened to me since the last time. I know that’s kinda long but also perf!

  1. Don’t pick up the phone you know he’s only calling cause he’s drunk and alone… sorry I couldn’t help myself that song is forever in my head. Any way I got my nails done… I know that might not seem like a big deal and that’s because it’s not. I just decided to have a little me time and have a nice relaxing nail day where my nail tech (are they called nail techs or just like the lady that does my nails. I don’t really know the term.) decided that I didn’t need my cuties aka cuticles, and proceeded to zzzzz (that’s the sound the nail filing thing makes… clearly I did my research on this.) until I bled. Really it was as relaxing as it sounds, but my nails do look cute so I guess pain is beauty.
  2. I decided that I want to cut my hair because its super long (well for me any way because I usually keep my hair short) and I don’t want to deal with it. But then at the same time I don’t want to cut my hair because I want to see how long I’ll let it grow until I ultimately cut it. So I’m back at square one, nothing getting done… the usual.
  3. I got a new laptop! Which I am currently typing tonights post on which is why its probably going to be super long because I’m usually writing from the bathroom on my phone. It’s where all my best thinking happens. Just so you know I got a MacBook Air. I know moving on up!
  4. I saw Black Panther the weekend it came out and it was the most amazing thing I’ve seen in so long. In my opinion it is the best marvel movie! The storyline… Amazing! The Villian… HOT also Amazing! The fact that this movie not only showcased talented black people from the actors to the director, but the fact that the powerful black women were the driving force… was fucking MAGICAL! This movie was so good I watched it twice and I’m trying to go watch it again, so whoever wants to go let me know!
  5. This is a big one people! I got a new JOB! I know I’m so excited! For those of you that don’t know I’ve been on the job hunt and let me tell you it has not been easy. When I first started looking I told myself that I only wanted to apply for jobs that I would be passionate about. If some of you don’t know I’m currently going to school for Creative Writing. So logically I want to be a New York Times Bestselling Author, but apparently one needs to write and wait for it publish a book for that to happen. But never fear I’m in the process of writing a little something something, nah mean jelly bean. I do have a back up career and that is to work in publishing. Just so you know getting a job in publishing is incredibly hard… honestly getting a job in any field is hard. After a couple of months with no luck, I broaden my scope. I can learn more in whatever field I get into and when I finish my degree and can go back out there and try again. With that being said I start my new job, not in publishing but that’s ok, in two weeks! In the mean time I’ll just keep writing and go with the flow!
  6. Finally, I was asked a very important question last night! A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that two of my slutties got engaged. Well Frover, my most favorite sluttie of all, asked me to be her bridesmaid! AAAAHHHHH! I’m so excited!! She asked in the cutest way! She gave us (her bridesmaids) a wine glass with the question written on it! It was the most beautiful thing. I got teary eyed and everything! Just thinking about it now has my eyes watery! Please enjoy the picture below because I had about an hour-long photo shoot with my glass!

Well this went on as long as I predicted… god I love this fucking MacBook… I really just like writing MacBook… and just think about it guys I could be writing the next New York Times Bestselling book right here on this MacBook!

Love Ya from the Moon and Back,

Emily (future Bridesmaid! and hopeful New York Times Bestselling Author!)

Happy New Year!!!

I have a new motto for the new year! You know how people say New Year, New Me… well mine is a little different and it goes a little something like this. New Year, Same me with possible improvements, mmmm probably not. I know this sounds so negative but give me a chance to explain myself sheesh!

I have goals set for the New Year for my self personally and professionally. For instance, I want to better myself by living a healthier life and all that good shit. BUUUUTTT, I also want to be less lazy and experience life more and I don’t just mean by doing extravagant things or traveling I just mean, say yes more and actually follow through. I have a perfect example of what I’m talking about please see conversation below for reference. (This conversation started with me asking Royal Blue and Indigo what they were doing that night and Royal Blue and I decided that we were going to have a Vino Viernes… because it was Friday on Christmas Eve Eve when this convo went down and we both wanted Vino, you get the point… so this is what transpired about 2 hours after we decided what we were gonna do. If you don’t know how iMessage works I am the blue text bubble)
See what I mean that is something I want to improve. I don’t want to have questionable commitment ( ok well not all the time, like sometimes you just need to be less committed). We ended up not hanging out that weekend but we did get together this last Friday on New Years Eve Eve and had a little too much to drink but I have to say it was one of the best nights I’ve had in a while and even though I had a pretty bad hangover I’m glad we did it. Royal Blue and I decided that come 2017 we will live our lives, we will do more things and just get out there because we’ve both experienced loss in our lives within the past 2 years and we feel like we really need to just be, and find ourselves even though I know that sounds so cliche, but it’s a cliche for a reason!

Even though I want to do more things this year I still have my little pessimist on my shoulder telling me not to get ahead of myself, which is the reason for my new motto. Yes I want to make changes, but they might not happen, BUUUUT IF THEY DO then it’s a win win either way! I know you’re probably judging the shit out of me, BUUUUT I don’t care!!
Well Ta Ta for now!
Love Ya from the Moon and Back,
Emily🌙 ( I hope everyone has a magical New Year!!!)

Girlie Brain vs. Non-Emotion Having Brain!

First I want to say that this story/dilemma/mind fuck is totally about one of my “friends”… Nah mean jelly bean. On with the story…

Once upon a time there was a girl named Awesome (you know my “friend”) and she met a boy named Boy (I know not creative but just go with it) a long long time ago… Let’s just say about 10ish years ago (this is about freshman or sophomore year in high school). Awesome met Boy through a mutual friend, and at that time they only hung out in a group, never one on one. Which was totally fine with Awesome because she just wanted to get out of her house because my parents were super strict( I mean HER parents were super strict).

As the years went by Em… I mean Awe and B became better friends. Awe started to realize that she was developing more than friends feelings for B, and she started freaking out because this couldn’t happen to me I mean her we were becoming besties. By my… Her senior year she accepted the fact that she had actual feelings for Boy, but never said anything about it because she isn’t good with feelings. Some might say she has no feelings, or what I like to call it “a boy mentality”. She doesn’t like to let those girlie feelings out because she feels like she’s the one that has to be the happy non complicated person. Little did she know it’s not always so easy peasy. After her senior year Awesome moved away to a far away land called Connecticut… About two to three hours away (depending on traffic and all that good shit) from her hometown. While she was away she gradually got over her feelings for Boy, but they always tried to keep in contact with each other for the sake of their friendship.

See the best part of their friendship is the fact that we I mean they could be themselves with each other. They have no judgment towards each other and ,well from Awesome’s side, always trying to tell the truth… As long as it doesn’t involve her feelings obviously. They talked about everything under the sun. Even the most random shit you can and sometimes can’t ever possibly think of comes up in conversation. Those were the best conversation they had. They never knew what the other would say and that was the best part of their friendship.

Fast forward about six years, both Awesome and Boy have been friends for about 10 years (or 11 years I can’t really remember) and things are as usual, every couple of weeks sometimes months (depending on our I mean their schedules) they would get together to go see a movie or have dinner and all that jazz. Ever since they started hanging out more Awesome’s friends started to tell her that they think Boy has more than friends feelings for her. Of course Awe being Awe she brushed it aside because she didn’t want to deal and denied it. She never believed what her friends told her because she always felt that her and Boy were just friends and nothing more.

After a couple of years of hearing the same thing from her friends, she started believing her friends a little. Now her girlie side is starting to come out and confuse her. Does he like her like her or does he just like her as a friend and person. This is where the confusion gets confusinger for her.

Sometimes he would text her that tell he L-word her (you know love) either when inebriated or on a holiday. The first time he said it she freaked out because he had told her he was drunk. Of course because She doesnt know how to deal with this she goes to her friends. Oh and do her friends tell her that that mofo loves you man. Which my I mean her come back was always no it’s not like that he loves me as a friend we’ve know each other for a long time… We’re practically best friends. It’s the same way I love you sluts. Which of course their response was shut your filthy whore mouth he loves you.

So now My normal everyday boy thinking mind is in a constant argument with my girlie side. My normal side is like dude don’t get worked up about this, you know it’s not like that and he just loves you like a friend loves another friend. While my girlie side is like bitch listen to your sluttie ass friends, he wouldn’t be telling you he loves you when he’s drunk or on holidays (okay maybe on holidays because you know it’s a holiday that’s where you remember the love/hate you have for your friends and family and all that good shit), but that whole drunk words are sober feelings crap would pop up. Then my normal side would prevail and be like “mofo when your drunk you go around telling everybody you love them and you even hug freaking light poles, trees and strangers… So maybe he’s just a loving drunk person.”

So now here I am confused as fuck because I don’t know who I should believe… Should it be girlie me or the normal non dealing with feelings me. On top of it all I don’t know how I feel about him. Do I like him or do I not. I’m soooo fucking Confucius! The End.

Love Ya from the Moon and Back,
Emily (holy crapola this was a long one.)

P.S. If you didn’t know I’m Awesome… Hehehe

We’re The 3 Best Friends That Anyone Could Have!

How do I become Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence’s best friend! We can make a best friend triangle of the funniest most awesome most beautiful looking uh oh Oreo but instead of it being stuffed with you know chocolate it’s stuffed with either maybe peanut butter or caramel. Any way what I’m trying to say is that we would be the best damn trio sampler ever!!! Where did this spiel come from… Well last night I was up super duper late (like 10:30ish… I’m an old lady don’t judge me) watching Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence interviews and fell even more in love with them. They are HIGHlarious!

I’m having a super brain fart right now. I think just the thought of becoming Jeamily (Jennifer, Amy, Emily tripod) has short circuited my brain. All I can think of is the crazy hilarious adventures we would have and how everybody would envy the relationship we have as a unit. Im telling you it’s gonna be freaking epic.

OMYEEZUS!!! If you ever get the chance to see Aladdin on Broadway you absolutely must see it! It’s fanfuckingtastic!! The actors and actress are incredible. Aladdin and Genies voices are phenomenal. The scenes… Especially the magic carpet holy shiitake mushrooms it was fantabulous. I’m just trying to show you how many different ways I can say awesome… I know pretty impressive… Am I right. In all honesty it was the best show I’ve seen, and I’ve seen at least 3 so you know I know what I’m talking about… Hehehe.

Well peeps… Bye!

Love Ya from the Moon and Back,
Emily ( you know you like how I came up with that freaking name… Jeamily)

Brotherly Love!

Have you ever wondered if you’ve already met “the One” but met him/her at the wrong time in your life? Or if you’ve already met your “soulmate” but didn’t even realize it? No, so just me… Is it my loneliness aka single as Fuckness kicking in and messing with my head. That actually might be it, but I was actually thinking about my brothers life when this popped into my head, and of course it later turned into me thinking about the same things for myself, but I’ll tell you that a little later.

I guess we can start off with why I was thinking about my brothers life… obviously there was alcohol involved, but honestly when isn’t there. We were at our cousins house Saturday night, and having an in the backyard loud as hell R&B session… And when R&B/ slow jams are playing one tends to think about either romantic things or their last breakup. In this case I started thinking about my brothers ex-girlfriends and wondering if he had met any one of them at a different time in his life would one of them have ended up being my sister in-law. For those who know me I hope you know which one I’m talking about. I feel if he met this one Ex of his at a later time in his life things would’ve been different for them… In all honesty I think she was the One, but at the wrong time.

Then I started thinking if she was his soulmate. I know some might think “the One” and “soulmate” are one in the same, but I feel like they’re completely different. For me the One is that person who compliments you; who even though they might not see or believe things the same way you do they still want to be apart of your life, they want to make a life with you, they feel like they can’t live without you, that person who loves you unconditionally with your flaws and all that good shit that comes with you. I swear I read and watch way to much romantical shit, and it has ruined me for life. Any way, a soulmate is that person who you connect with on another level, someone you knows you inside and out, and not necessarily in a romantical way, it’s that person that you feel you can be your absolute self and you honestly don’t give a fuck what they think because they’re probably doing and the thinking the same thing about you. I feel like my brother has already found his soulmate, and it’s his best friend. Those two are like two peas in a pod, they’ve been best friends for as long as I can remember and they are still the best friends you would ever meet. At times I’m kind of jealous of their friendship… Of course I love my friends to death they are like my sisters, but this bond that my brother and my Brother from Anotha Motha (my brothers bestie) have is something beautiful. It’s like they were just meant to be in each others lives.

Well this was a lot longer than I thought it was going to be. That’s all for now… Maybe on Friday I’ll tell you about what I think I discovered about myself.

Love Ya from the Moon and Back,
Emily ( I’m sure there are people who have been fortunate enough to find both their soulmate and the One in one person, and I hope to one day be apart of those fortunate.)

Ps. I want to take this time to thank the men and women that have fought for our country and our freedom. You all are truly Amazing/Brave/Beautiful human beings and I love you all. Happy Veterans Day!
