What Comes After Bronze? Part Deux: Finding Love in the Big City Part XXVI

By at 19 October, 2009, 12:00 am

After being conned out of my phone number, we finally had a chat. He is so very French.  I’ve been a Francophile for as long as I can remember.  I love the sophistication of the sounds, how the words curl off my tongue and kiss my lips from the inside out – just mind blowing.  […]

The Friend Zone

By at 18 September, 2009, 12:00 am

Whether you’re a single person or in a relationship, being friendly or cordial with someone who likes you shouldn’t be a task. However, it can actually be hard to deal with someone on a friendship basis, when they have feelings that go beyond a platonic friendship. It strikes me as funny how people can be […]

By at 15 September, 2009, 4:35 am

The starter pistol explodes… And she’s off ladies and gentleman – that girl is burning that midnight oil: getting to know him, liking him and is ready to give that subtle yet gentle reminder that my pants are already down and I’m waiting for you to notice. . . (circa episode XII) look. Here’s the […]

The Lost Episodes: Finding Love in the Big City XXV

By at 31 August, 2009, 12:00 am

Time waits for no one and that is oh so explicitly clear as I hear my biological clock “tick tock” louder than the ocean. Not saying that the ocean noise isn’t lovely and all, but hot diggity. It seems that marriage is all around me — everyone I know is either shacking up, thinking about […]

For The Record

By at 28 May, 2009, 12:29 pm

I love you… Those three words, when spoken, will be recieved and registered by the recipients in different ways. Some people take these words and can reciprocate the exact same sentiment, while others are threatened by them. The way a person chooses to recieve the words, “I Love You”, is beyond my control. I know […]

An April Fool, No Joke

By at 1 April, 2009, 2:18 pm

Today is supposed to be Wordless Wednesday, but I have no pictures to post and it has been sometime since my last blog entry — so I’m saying my piece. Thank you to all that have inquired about the whereabouts of the folks that makes up the collective of Urban Observation. We’ve all been on […]

Change We Need Pt. 1

By at 12 January, 2009, 12:00 am

Throughout my experiences with dating, I have encountered people who aren’t accustomed to being supportive, trustworthy or respectful. There were times where I fell short of giving my all for whatever reason, and things didn’t work out the way I would have wanted them to. The trial and error that is experienced when seeking a […]

Confessions of a Biker Chick: Finding Love in the Big City XXIV

By at 19 December, 2008, 12:00 am

I am a closeted rebel wanting to come out and reek havoc upon the masculine psyche; sensual red lips, tight leather pants, sky high heels and a devious smile for the brave soul willing to challenge me to a race. I have always had this fantasy of riding down an open stretch of Americana with […]

I Decided… Part 1

By at 16 December, 2008, 9:30 am

When I talk, you don’t listen. All I hear is silence when I speak. I know you don’t hear me because when I say hello, you respond with “huh”. You claim to have heard me, but you’re unable to relay anything back that I spoke to you. You’re being dishonest. Apparently, some one or some […]

Life Cycles: Finding Love in the Big City XXIII

By at 11 December, 2008, 12:00 am

Why is it that the man of my dreams has a fucked up track record of failure? I guess it’s true that I believe solely on the promise of a happily ever after. Maybe that is the thing that keeps me going in life – hope. I already know that happily ever after is never […]

Dating

By at 8 December, 2008, 11:15 am

I’ve been in my share of relationships and there were times when I knew that the person with whom I had dealings with wasn’t the right person for me. When I came to that realization, I made it a priority to shake myself loose of that person. It saddens me to see people carry on […]

Rebirth of the Slick: Finding Love in the Big City XXII

By at 10 November, 2008, 9:22 am

I have been reborn. I haven’t found the time machine that takes me back to the days when things were simpler – childhood – being catered to, feeling the weight of your mother’s smile impress itself upon you like leaky faucet, consistent and at times nerve racking but ever missed when it isn’t around. We […]
