I went to Indianapolis, Indiana!
Stayed at the beautiful JW Marriott.
Got inspired at the 2013 National Society of Black Engineers National Convention.
Rocked out with my girl, Melanie Fiona.
And then I ate more than I could handle, but it was worth it.

I just want to express how much I love you all. There's something moving and beautiful about having people you've never met, hundreds or thousands of miles away, care about you. I hope all of you amazing people are having a fantastic week, it's Friday!
( Celine Paris Shirt - Ebay, Studded Loafers - Gojane, Leatherette Jacket - F21, Gold Link Chain Necklace - Ebay)
I really liked this outfit, mainly because I've been wanting to wear this Celine top I found on Ebay. It was such a steal, you wouldn't believe it! I wore this on one of my sxsw adventures, it was an amazing day but unfortunately my little loafers didn't make it, may they rest in peace (it gets rough during sxsw).
In other news, Justin Timberlake's album is out. You should listen to it. Really. It's perfect cruisin' in your car, windows down, shades on music. See, I love it so much, I titled this blog post after my favorite song from the album (followed by Pusher Love Girl). The playlist of the album is below, you're welcome :)

Note to self:
Stop stressing. And biting your nails won't make them grow faster.
Remember this too shall pass, because it always does.
Lately, I've been feeling overwhelmed with a lot of aspects of life. You know that feeling where you just keep expecting things to go wrong, because everything else is. Like your mind is disconnected from your body and the latter is functioning as though it was in a state of normality when the prior is in one of chaos. Some may call it a front: putting a smile on your face when your soul isn't smiling. I call it coping.
So, that was me. Coping.
Until I realized that living and coping are two very different things and I needed to stop coping if I wanted to start living. See, I tend to trust God in the big areas of my life (ex: praying that an interview turns into an internship, hoping that I get the scholarship I applied for) but it's as though I completely forget that faith exists with the small things.
So, here I am this morning: having a cup of faith with my tea. Because "God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it."
