see, that wasn’t long! just took the weekend off. but the main thing is that i regrouped.
just came back from the gym. woke up early, spent an hour trying to crack the combination to this lock i had since 2002+. finally gave up and just bought a new damn lock for the gym. but the universe luvs me cuz my fav number, 22, is one of the numbers in the combo. (don’t ask me how this is relevant or the signficance of it. it’s just a sign people! lol)
the gym was cool. looking forward to exploring all the programs they have there.
gonna buy fabric + debut my new “campaign” = new clothing! details in a bit…
i finally changed my blog template! i hope u guys like it.
i must say i am very happy with it, though i am still tweaking it. i am becoming content with staying on tumblr. for now. lol
there is this notes thing going around on facebook; “you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. so here is my list: 1. i am the shortest adult in my family. on both sides. 2. i wish my bra size was a cup smaller. 3. fav nyc landmark: brooklyn bridge 4. guilty pleasure: wendy williams on the radio 5. some of my fav foods: rice, beans, ice cream 6. every female in my family has had kids by the age of 25. except me. 7. my little brother is 18 yrs younger than me. 8. i am named after a 70s music group, the captain and tennille. 9. in 1st grade i went to school dressed like punky brewster. wanted to dress like that everyday but my mom thought that was too excessive. 10. last july, me + my uncle jimmy got tattoos; my 1st one, his 6th. 11. i don’t have cable tv. 12. fav juice: welch’s grape juice 13. current style mood: wearing only dresses/skirts 14. i have 2 middle names: tennille nakimuli shanae mcmillan 15. i am a vegetarian who eats fish = pescatarian 16. i have no childhood memories of my father except for when i went to visit him when i was 8. 17. some of my fav movies: the wiz, love jones, mo’ betta blues 18. i write a to do list almost every day. 19. if i was a singer, my style would be like miss jack davey from j.davey…or rihanna/m.i.a./santogold. 20. my father thought i was a boy + wanted to name my george hamilton or hamilton george.

but i luv it. last nite, after i wrote the previous post about not being on twitter, abc nightline did a story about twitter + how it is becoming the “it” thing for 2009. i couldn’t believe it. lol but i still do not get the purpose of it. at least not entirely. but i was thinking about giving it a try when i get my new blackberry this weekend.
i really don’t understand the purpose of twitter. (feel free to school me plz.) and i just feel like if there is another thing i have to join, i am going to go crazy. i feel like i am already too connected:
-facebook (personal profile + fan page for nakimuli)
-myspace (personal + business page)
-my up + coming website
-my online store (www.nakimuli.etsy.com)
-my 2 email accounts
-then countless of other places like flickr, model mayhem, etc that i check every so often
i just don’t know if i can take any more online presence!
but knowing myself very well, i know i am going to break down + join twitter any day now…
so i have decided that i’m gonna make a list on the 15th of each month of all the things i am really into right now. (let’s see if i can keep this up every month!)
so here is january’s list in no particular order:
1-leggings —-> i hate trends but i now see why females have been rocking them so much. (and u would think that i would know being that i have been dancing almost my whole life. go figure.)
3-all things barack obama
4-starbucks’ grande chai tea latte with soy milk
6-kanye west —-> he can be arrogant but i think it’s quite humorous. and he is very open to life and trying new things and not giving a crap about what people think (but not really) and i admire that.
7-vegan pumpkin cheesecake
8-staying off the internet —-> i have a love/hate relationship with this thang!
10-my vintage GAP fuchsia and black striped cardigan
11-the bubble breaker game on my cell phone
12-bringing fresh new ideas to my designs
15-abandoning my ‘08 routine and ushering the new ‘09 one
16-my eyesight—->sometimes i think i’m seeing things. i told the eye doctor this last march, they ran all sorts of tests (1 in particular was excruciating) but they said everything is fine. i should probably go back to the eye doctor soon…or maybe just work on #8. arggghhh
17-avoiding the men’s retail store (no name dropping) on the corner of my block becuz i’ve had a crush on the owner for a few yrs now and i swear he and his whole staff knows i like him even though i never go in there but i am just REAL self-conscious about the fact that i know i like him. —->oh and he has a girlfriend.
18-wondering why my landlord thinks it’s cool to play the flute 10pm-1am every other night. —->yeah i know the sound is soft but at night it still sounds kinda loud. but whatevs.
19-thinking about andre 3000 every morning when i wake up
20-creating my own website —->it’s soooooo hard but i am determined to do it!
