But Tremaine Aldon Neverson has come a long way. He emerged as this rapper singer or singer rapper. Similar to Drake, Trey had a soulful voice but wanted to thug it out. Initially this personally disorder got him nowhere. So after being advised, he chose to serenade us with ballads instead of bars. 5 years later, Trey has missed the mark again. Before reading on, remember that this is my blog which means only my opinion is stated.
It’s not that he's completely lost but I'm noticing that something is missing in comparison to the last album. I know that the two can't be the same and some may even say, "Ni**as want my old shit, buy my old album!" Thanks Jay. But seriously Trey while you're giving us Passion, Pain, Pleasure we’re missing you being Ready.
On PPP Trey seems more robotic as if he's trying to fit into some mold of the pop world. On top of that I heard hints of The Dream, in “Red Lipstick” where Trey repeats choruses and lines over and over again. Then the ultimate happened, and I didn't even want to take it here, but he really did pull a couple of R. Kelly’s in “Alone.” Lastly, I didn’t notice as much sexiness as in the past. Trey didn’t come as hard as he did on “I Invented Sex” or “Neighbors Know My Name.” He only comes close with “Doorbell.”
Fortunately there was still some Trey evidence left. For instance, you can still imagine those crazy faces he makes just by listening to the way he sings the lyrics. There’s actually an ode to that, “Love Faces.”
To conclude, I believe that real fans will not enjoy Passion, Pain, Pleasure especially if you’re looking for something to continue your wet dreams of the last album Ready.
PS. He didn’t even say his coined phrase on this album, “YUP!” I want my money back.

Here are the new perks:
The new iPhone has a new shape. It is very futuristic in the sense that other phones have a curvy shape and look juvenile. Look at the BlackBerry for instance. This new face also allows for a bigger screen.
The new iPhone can group your apps which comes in handy when you're spending time searching through pages. But you can update you 3G to get the same feature.
The new iPhone has a flash and video recorder. This is something that re old phone doesn't have but many other phones do have this feature. It's nothing new. Even a cave man can do it.
The new iPhone has FaceTime. This is where you go "Ohhhh, Awww!" But wait don't get too excited. Who exactly are you going to FaceTime. You can only use this feature if you're talking to someone else with an iPhone 4.
With these differences pointed out, I’m so ready to move on to something other than an Apple phone. Now I’m not saying that it’s not better than most phones out there, especially BlackBerry, however, we all need change sometimes, not just an upgrade.
Now I’m looking at an android phone. I really don’t know what it is but hey, I’ll figure it out, right? So if you know anything about the Samsung Captivate let me know.

When I’m upset or bothered I usually clean. Last night I CLEANED so that should explain how upset I was. Tell you later. But good things came out of my anger. My closets are in tact and ready for the upcoming season. So let’s begin.
So I did this because organizing is crucial to maintaining a healthy life. Forget the healthy eating and exercise. Clutter free equals stress free. Hence my various attempt at having a garage sale. But anyway, hopefully the organized spaces can influence more organization in my life, school, work, the works.
TIPS for organization:
· Clear it out! Everything!
· Sort it out. Lay things out to see exactly what you have.
· Give it away. Decide what you want and need and discard the rest. My motto: If you haven’t used it within 1 year, then it’s wasting space.
· Put things back in a way that’s beneficial to you. Whether it is organized by color, season, or occasion, as long as it work for you and can last
If you have any more organizing ideas for me please forward!

The voice in my heart sang
its lips smiled
and its feet jumped.
The love I felt was strong
with a grip like a newborn.
It was, in a way, a newborn
growing fast, sitting up, crawling,
walking, running. Sometimes even
falling but always getting back
up to try again.
I wrote this a while ago, maybe last year. Usually in the classroom I work in, when there’s some downtime, you can usually get a lot of creativity out of me. I’m not a Nikki Giovanni or anything but I does my thang! Whatcha think?

This girl I’m subscribed to on YouTube, CHEVerlyHIllz, has done everything to her hair. It’s a similar story to mine of frying, dying, blowing drying, and anything else known to damage your hair. Finally she went natural with a big chop a little over a year but unfortunately experienced some heat damage. Now she’s decided to BC once again and realizes she like its way better.
Anyway, let me update you on a few things. I started a new book in my book group. Yes, we can officially call it a group because Donelle has joined. 3’s a crowd but in a good way this time. We’re reading Shanghai Girls by Lisa Lee if you want to follow. And on the side I’m reading Assata: An Autobiography by Assata Shakur. Both of these books include characters that are so far from the life I live but I like those types of novels because it’s like a form of traveling. You get to leave your world and join another. Get me?
Also, as I said, it was my birthday yesterday. Go Virgos! I celebrated with a group of friends over the weekend with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and then we partied at Club Venus. Oh, in between the two we partied in the middle of the street. Don't be surprised. Very typical for us.
