Everybody feel a way about K....



Better than a "Why lie? I need a drink."sign


I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday (more like rambling, but whateva...) about my need for attention. Also a pal of mine wrote a blog about her similar need for attention... Tiha was gone yesterday on her lovely 'gubment' holiday... so in honor of my 'hateration' I am posting a convo with my buddy ol' pal Luvvie instead of her, go check her blog, she likes attention too, AND I am guest blogger at SOME point today *eye roll*....


me: i have a new blog follower and that makes me happy, lol
luvvie20: YAYYYY!!!
me: why do the things i write with the most passion and fervor are the ones no one pays attention to?
that rings true with my perfomances as well
luvvie20: really??
me: girl yes
luvvie20: weird
me: el too, we were talking a while back about our favorite pieces and how they get the most lukewarm response
it even translates to the working world sometimes
like the projects i work the hardest on and actually feel a connection to go unnoticed
it can be discouraging sometimes
we are all human and on some level want recognition, pat on the back, or some shit, or even for someone to say it sucks
bc even if they say it sucks aat least they took notice and feel something
as kanye said "Everybody feel a way about K, but at least y'all feel something" *
luvvie20: yup!
me: dang, thats a blog
and dang, a poem is a-brewin


attention haiku:
Someone look at me
I am easy on the eyes
Please behold my sight**

**please?

there much that could be said and much more than can be taken to heart from this but your right ppl could pay a little more attention to such deserving artist

I dig the Haiku!

The blogs that I write that are the most passionate and spontaneous (and un-proofread) are the ones that 100's of people flock to.

The ones that I agonize overs for a few days, and triple spell check get like 20 hits.

Is there a blogger somewhere highlighting my grammatical mistakes? LOL

I think the issue is that we want attention regarding the things that we care most about, and in the real world no one cares about us. People only care about themselves (cynical, I know) so no matter how much we care about a post, painting, poem, performance....it means more to us, than to them (sad, but true)

And we just gotta let go and let it do what it do. (hard, but necessary)
