Random Word: Chronic???

Sherry use to enjoy dinner time like Christmas Mornin

And her mother was mean chef
who knew how
to put the soul
in soul food

I mean she really knew how to put her foot in it!
And though she wasn't from Texas
Sherry always believed that being bigger was better

but one day Sherry confused her tv for mirror
compared her reflection to a Seventeen magazine
and convinced herself that being plus sized
was no longer acceptable

Her mind had become susceptible
to anything that could make her feel
But since then, Sherry has fallen
completely out of touch
with herself

So now,
Sherry regurgitates thoughts of dinner time
like a drunk uncle at family reunions

she burps empty stomachs in break rooms
as if trying to gather laughs
during a high school lunch period

Breakfast is trapped somewhere in her imagination
alongside Sherry's new found popularity
but she just walks around
hand and hand with Delusion
as if this all is a dream

But in reality,
She is a walking
chronic eating disorder
Her lungs breathe starvation
Her stomach growls like jungles
of third world countries
Her face is a wall where we use to
hang smiling portraits
Her hair is chipped paint
Her limbs are corroded pipes

Her body is an abandoned home
that every one is afraid to go near
and guys often take bets
to see who is brave enough to sleep in her overnight

Sherry traded in her SOUL food
for diet pills and skipped meals
but beauty never came to her
in the form of capsule...

Random Word: Imagination???

I've always made excuses
for not having ever written a poem about you
but really you were just a muse
that I couldn't get on paper fast enough

You were just that one quote
that probably would have changed the world
if only I had found a chisel
to get you in my stone cold heart
and ensure that you would stick around forever

But I cant say I didn't write your name in pencil on purpose
because even a blind man can see
that danger doesn't always
show its face in plain sight

You made me vulnerable to my own weakness
cuz you knew I wasn't good with handling mail
yet you always expected me
to push then envelope in our relationship

I bet you still wonder how
every time you'd search and try to find me
I'd always magically manage to lose myself

Because my mind ran in circles
trying to think outside the box for you
so maybe you should stay confined
to the radius of my imagination.

Just allow my dreams to breathe...

Mad Dash???

So this week has been probably the busiest week I’ve had all semester. As you can see, I haven’t had time to post a lot so I am going to talk a little bit about my week before we jump into our artist of the week. If you don’t know, (which you probably don’t) I am a Sagittarius and I consider myself to be one of the best examples of a person that truly exemplifies their zodiac sign. One thing that is common for a Sagittarius is that we hate routine, and college is all about routine. So as much as it kills me to get up every morning at the same time, look at the same faces, hear the same voices, and talk to the same people, I know that it is necessary for me to further my success in this world and I usually manage to fight through it. Yet somehow, a few days this week I found myself in a mad dash to get places because I either woke up late or just lost track of time. I was never late to class or to work, but I did encounter a few close calls. Every time I found myself in that situation though, the people around me never knew the difference. Teachers went on with their lectures as usual, the students around me still took their notes, everyone else still continued their regular lives with no knowledge of the stressful events of my day. What I mean by this is that matter what is happening with you, ECU and the rest of the world will continue to move along, the choice is your of whether or not you are willing to make the necessary sacrifices to join the movement… even if it means you overlook the toothbrush one morning, lol. So to show pride in my sign and all of the Centaurs out their reading this blog, this week’s artist is one our own… Jay-Z. Not only does he have the coolest zodiac sign ever, but he is definitely a living legend and he proved that with his recent release, Blueprint 3. The album has been certified platinum and debut at #1 on the Billboard charts making Jay-Z second only to The Beatles for having the most number #1 albums. Good job Hova and congratulations. Go grab the new album if you don’t have it already. It is nothing short of perfection.

Morning Tunes???

One thing I want the world to know about Johnny Alfredo, is that I am a very diverse person in all aspects of life. Whether its clothes, foods, hairstyles, you name it, I am always open minded and willing to try anything once. One thing that I am most proud of is my ear for music. I love just about any type of music that can provide a good tune…except for Country music. I was kinda sorta a Dixie Chicks fan back in the day, but after them, Country Music just kinda lost all hope with me, and I blame CMT. If music was divided into types of sugars, then Country Music would be considered Sweet n Low. It just has an acquired taste that I haven’t quite acquired yet, lol. But nevertheless, I consider myself a musical connoisseur because I listen to different types of musical genres. My iTunes collection at this point currently holds 14,000+ songs and counting, and it would take someone exactly 37.5 days to listen to every song once; this is something I am truly proud of. I love having a diverse collection of music so that I can chill out when I’m studying or writing a paper because the music usually puts me in a comfortable copacetic environment that allows me to be efficient in whatever I am doing. My favorite time to cruise to some tunes is in the mornings on the way to class. The music really wakes me up and sets the tone for the day and mostly just makes those dreaded 8 o’clock lab classes that more pleasant. The latest artist that is getting buzz in my iPod these days is Kid Cudi. He has a nice Alternative/Hip Hop feel to him, but it’s really hard to classify his genre so it’s best to check him out for yourself. He has released the singles “Day n’ Nite” and “Make Her Say” so check him if you enjoy new music as much as I do.
