* Warning: this post is not for the soft-hearted!*
Even at three-years post my college experience, I am still evolving as a lady. Quite honestly, I don't think this cycle ever stops. Think of it this way: if you are aspiring to reach your fullest potential, then you should always be in the stage of evaluating yourself. As a lady, you should constantly reflect on your progress and make the proper adjustments or changes where necessary. I believe that even the most profound female figures had idols and icons that they once looked up to and imitated in order to create their perfect selves. I am sure that each of us had someone in mind who we wanted to be "just like.." when we grew up. Children learn behavior through imitating what they see around them. Therefore, I am sure that there is an audience who is watching your performance. But, what type of performance are you presenting?
A Street Korna Production:
Moving to Florida from the Tri-state area has been a mind-boggling experience. Don't get wrong I have adapted quite well and enjoy the culture to include the food, music and simple idiosyncrasies, but my goodness are there some GHETTO people who live this state. There is a difference between COUNTRY and HOOD! And please believe, the GOONS are in full effect in Florida, baby! Ghetto, hood, and gettin' it! All up and through here! There's colorful hair, crunchy hair, drunken-but-I'm-sober grammar, "smack poppin," over exaggerated hand talking, neck rolling, Fantasia Voice, rolled s', uncontrolled r sounds, dropped r sounds, added r sound, added k sounds, boo after every word, "finna" "did-dat." I mean I could go on, but I think you get the picture. Matter of fact, here's a few pictures:
Ooo gurl, *smack* dat hur iz ruuul krute. Let me take dis pickya
Smile for me Daddy and let me see ya grill
Yes, he's in jail!
A Broadway Play:
Although I've never been to a Broadway play, I can only imagine how glamorous, sophisticated and suave each play must be! In order to even try out for a play on broadway you definitely have to have your stuff in line. Actors become their characters and deliver a fierce performance, no errors, miscues or mistakes, sheer perfection! And even if they are caught off guard, they are so thorough that you would never notice. Not to mention the people who usually attend the high-class plays are arrogant, sassy and a bit stand-offish!
As a child you couldn't tell me that these weren't real cats!
I love a good concert, especially when it's an artist whose cd I have and know the words so I can sing along. I'm sure if I would have won tickets to Beyonce's concert, I would have been Beyonce, bump her - you must not know 'bout me! However, Operas on the other hand...well they're like Brussels sprouts and asparagus you have to aquire a taste for them. No I've never purchased a ticket to an opera, but I love the part in The 5th Element when the Blue lady sings! Oo-oo-oo-oooohh *doing the arms* Okay, so that doesn't count...technically. Granted Operas have a storyline, it takes too long to follow what is going on and then the language barrier and bravado, octave genre that I must keep up with - it's too complicated.
I love this movie! I always watch it when it comes on TV
So which one are you? I think the perfect woman is a mixture of all three and has the ability to code switch between each venue with ease. This makes me want to create a test! What kind of Show Stoppa Are You?
