I should have…saved my $ C.R.E.A.M.

Everyone knows the hit song by Wu Tang C.R.E.A.M.

I Charmaine Hudson should’ve saved my money more often. I should end the blog right now because that’s what I should have done.

I feel as if I need to explain myself. While C.R.E.A.M. is one of my favorite hip-hop songs I don’t think that Wu Tang and I have the same meaning.  You see, I use to have a horrible shopping problem. When I got depressed or sad I would shop. When I got angry I would shop. When I was stressed I shop. Happy, excited, all of the emotions I would shop or spend my money on something.

I think back when I was 19 years old and how excited I opened my first bank account. That was my stepping stone to adulthood. I thought “My parents don’t have to buy me anything”! I started off great saving my money. I managed it down to the T. Some where though I began to not manage my money. I could tell you the whole story. I can write a book about it. All I can say is I wished I would’ve managed more.

Now, I am much better than what I use to be.  I’m much older and keep a tight budget. I want to move out my parents home as soon as possible!  I was so use to being on my own during college that this had thrown me for a loop!  I can say that this is maturing me on a different level!  Starting from scratch is what I needed to do in order to help my spending skills.

So this is my confession. Shoulda coulda woulda….. well I learned from that and it’s paying off well!



Yea, so…umm this is so out of my league because I never write about this. I am not an expert at all. I don’t touch on this subject because I’m not too comfortable about it. But, this is what the blogging challenge is all about. So, here we go.
I’m a conservative person when it comes to sex. I do believe that you need to wait until you are married. If not then make sure that you’re in love.
When I made the decision to do that I was not in love with him. I do regret that I wasn’t with someone I was in love with because I never been in love before.
It was a mutal agreement. It wasn’t like the movies where they fall in love. I didn’t fall in love with him. As
a matter of fact  we only spoke a few times and I moved on. He was a good guy just not for me at the moment.
I’ve decided to sustain from sex because I want too. There are too many things out there and I want to wait until I’m in a serious relationship and we’re in love.

The “black pass”

Sooo…. I didn’t know how I should get into this post. I’ll just write how I feel. So obviously we know what’s been going on with Justin Bieber. I never been a fan and I don’t listen to his music. What I have been seeing and constantly reading about is the havoc this boy been causing.
I find it offensive that people would have the nerve to blame his way of thinking and actions because he’s been hanging around African American’s.
Ummm excuse me but, I think that this boy has been this way his whole life.  There is no way that ALL of the sudden he’s acting and talking “black”.  I don’t give out the black pass because there’s nothing to give out. I’ve never heard any Caucasian person giving a African American person a “white pass”. That needs to die. The same thing goes for Hannah Montana aka “Ms. Twerk of the century”.

What irritates me is that we let this so called pop culture mock us.
Love and Hip-hop and Housewives to name a few.  We are officially the laughing stalk of all cultures.
So let’s save that “black pass”. It’s not okay. I don’t care if you grew up around African American’s or you’re married to one.  Even if you went to a HBCU.. you are who you are.

I blog because…

I blog because it’s fun. I started blogging because I needed something to talk about. I wanted to write that’s it.
At first, I wasn’t interested in people reading my post.
When I start getting into it, I wanted to know how people felt about the topics I wrote about.
I blog because I feel that I can really write how I feel without anyone judging me. It’s more laid back and there’s more freedom when it comes to blogging. It’s like therapy for me.
It’s taking off my makeup of writing. All the rules and regulations are out the window.
It’s hard core to me. If I wanted to use vulgar language in one of my post because I was in a foul mood that day then I can.  It’s more edgy.
You get to explore other bloggers and see how they feel and what they are into.
I get to be Charmaine and no one can say a word about it. HAPPY BLOGGING!
