First & foremost ---- May is in ONE DAY - aka my BIRTHDAY MONTH :)I usually only do a birthday weekend ; but my partner at work is also a May born ; and she has convinced me that I must do it up ALL month. Lol. SO I have decided to do justt that. I am very excited for all that will be going on. I have interesting options. But nothing is finalized just yet.
Then there is events I will be working on - such as my poetry book. It has been a slow process ; just because I am having trouble with some companies on publishing & copy writing it all. But it will soon be all fixed && they will be out. It will be a book with about 30 poems of my own ; that I have written these past 6 years. 30 of my most favorite that I think others will really enjoy & more so can really relate to. There is also a fundraising event I am planning/hosting & will be working on through out this summer; Updates on that will be up sometime soon. I also got asked to be apart of a poetry slam event for this July - So I will be performing pieces of my poetry work. I was VERY happy that I was asked & thought of for it. It will be an amazing event.
As for my health - I dont know if it is all the positivity - but I am doing 10000 times better. I have been living off veggies beans & fish. Oh man; I never knew I could cook up some banging dishes. Lol && more so HEALTHY ones. Fruit shakes have been my go- to now instead of bags of chips. Woohoo ! Go me ! Lol. All is well though ; have some test & what not coming up - but I know I will keep getting better & better by the day.
Work & School - are PERFECT. Everything is just flowing into place & I am very proud of myself for all the hard work I do ; and all the great things I have been achieving and will keep achieving. All the time I spend on work for school & my job keep paying off at the end of the day.
I have been working on my NYC collages ; and taking as many pictures as I can of different places all around the NYC area. I am just about ready to turn it into a collage piece. Soon enough it will be up <3
Always remember I am open to anything. You can email me or tweet me on twitter ...for any request you guys may have. Jsal529@gmail.com or Twitter : Simpllygorjess

I take pictures of just about anything that catches my interest. I dont care if im in the middle of walking to work ; I go into my oversized bag & find my camera to take a picture of it. Cus If you know anything about NY you know that you can find just about anything on walls; street lights ; etc. && sometimes / usually they are not there for a while. SO ; I went to Brooklyn; Williamsburg not long ago for an event & saw this by a deli. It caught my eye right when I seen it.
If your a artist/writer/poet then you know exactly what this signifies to us. As a writer myself I came to realize my deepest & best thoughts come at the most random times ; such as while im on the train or just simply walking to the store for some milk. So I always feel like I need to find someway; something to jot a idea down on a piece of paper. I start to say poetry lines in my head & try to stop myself from thinking so I can just write it down. Lol. So I had to take this picture because it reminded me so much of the situations I have on daily basis. Whether is paper ; hand ; walls; computers; or phones. We must always write down our bright & inspirational sentences of hope - struggle & faith.

At my job today we had a poetry slam in our classrooms for the whole day with all of our kids. It was a blast ; & I am so proud of myself for giving my class a good time. They were so happy & it just really made me feel great to see them love everything that was going on. I feel like it was definitely something new to them; Something I wish I was able to do back in Kindergarten. Here are some pictures of the event ! Enjoy ♥

This video just shows you how much they really genuinely love each other. It is one thing to support your man/woman with their career ; but another thing to be APART of it. Not just because she is singing - but if you see any other shows they have done or award shows you know bee is always there on the sidelines spitting his lyrics; singing along; throwing up the roc sign. There is also a video where he was singing one of bee's songs ; talking about how she killed it with the lyrics. Its amazing to be able to mix business with pleasure in your relationship & not let it be a downfall. Be apart of your significant others dreams/goals/careers and it will make you both stronger & closer together. When two people have a talent & a vibrant love for each other they can become a lot bigger than when its just them ; alone doing what they love to do. Im not saying go up and sing with your man ; cus cmon not all of us have that God given talent ; Lol. But be there for constructive criticism ; show interest - find ways to really help them out ; or give your opinion. Your partner will then see that you love them and you love what they are doing.

I am probably one of the last few people that take out books from the library. Lol. I can easily buy the books - but first off there is NO room on my bookshelf ; I currently have books stacked on my desk && on top of my TV too ; yes its that much. Lol. So its more eco friendly to get it from the library & bring it right back for others to read. The library also is one of my peace of mind places; makes me feel at ease. Im not sure if it also has to do with the fact that it brings a lot of childhood memories. But yeah ; I got this book last week & finished it like in two days. I am a big fan of Maya Angelou's poetry. If you know anything about me ; you know I have been writing since the age of like 9. Its my way of expressing my emotions & feelings. She has a couple which I want to share with you all ; because if I was able to relate to them ; its possible many others out there can too ! ♥ There are SO many more I LOVE but just way too many to type out here ; maybe another day - another post !
They Went Home -->
They went home and told their wives;
that never once in all of their lives,
they known a girl like me,
but ....they went home.
They Said my house was licking clean;
no word I spoke was ever mean
I had an air of mystery,
But...they went home.
My praises were on all mens lips,
they liked my smile; my wit; my hips,
they would spend one night; two; or three.
Poor Girl -->
Youve got another love
and I know it
Someone who adores you
just like me
Hanging on your words
like they were gold
thinking that she understand your soul
just like me.
Your breaking another heart
and I know it
And there is nothing I can do
If I try to tell her
what I know
and make me go
just like me.
Your going to leave her too
and I know it
She'll never know what made you go
She'll cry and wonder
what went wrong
then she'll begin
to sing this song
Just like me.
& Lastly : Phenomenal Woman -->
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman

My fave cup ; ever :) ♥
86 days till me & my king make ONE YEAR ♥ ♥
&& 35 days till I turn 23 !!
In Love with my pink & polka dot bible ; I have been taking it with me everywhere.
&& say hello to my new frosting ♥ I got this ring for myself - because I am officially married ; to myself & God. Lol. Its a promise ring I got myself that I vow to love MYSELF unconditionally. I am super hard on myself - a lot ! Soo I wanted to make it up to myself && make a promise to myself ; cus I deserve it.

If you know me well you know - I got real sick this week & had like an emotional breakdown - wow ; I was bad. It was as though I was losing all hope & was being super negative about everything. After speaking to a couple people ; they calmed me down & reminded me what is most important right now : ME. I need to stop thinking about every other little thing going on around me, and just think about my well being & my career/job. Since then I have been doing very well ; just a lot of positive thoughts.
So any female can learn how to cook ; but wouldnt you instead want to be with a woman that can make a banging meal ; and at the same time all healthy. I think anyone would say yes to that. I will no longer be a girlfriend that makes my boyfriend fatty foods. Lol. ( Not that I would leave him if he got chunky ....but I gotta keep my man healthy & alive ).
I cant say I am a vegetarian - but I do not eat red meat or chicken any longer. The only type of meat I eat is fish/sea food; to gain a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals. The American Heart Association recommends that people eat 2-3 meals of fish a week. With that being said I guess you can call me a Pescitarian? Lol. I am contemplating going full Vegan next month maybe ; but I am still contemplating that. I am currently living off veggies - Broccoli has become my FAVORITE. Also pastas ; fish; && BEANS. Lol. In the morning & at night as a snack I have some kind of fruit. I stopped drinking a soda a longg time ago also just because I faced reality watching this nasty video once on youtube showing what it actually does to your body. So now all I drink is water; juices that contain fruits & veggies - plus a lot of fruit smoothies and milkshakes.
I must say cooking & eating healthy lately has really been improving all aspects of my life. It keeps me feeling energized & ready for the day ; ready to conquer the world. LOL. I see steak & chicken on like commercials on TV and it disgust me just to look at it ; seriously. So thats a good sign; Lol. I guess it also helps that I am now going to the gym to work out & take aerobic/kickboxing/yoga etc classes.
Comes a time when you just come to realize you need to start making drastic changes for yourself && maybe that way you can change the decisions of others around you. Our body is our temple & we all need to start learning how to really take care of it. Whether your 100 pounds or 300 .... We must stay healthy; because life is not guaranteed.

Chris "Kazi" Rolle, a promising young rapper, raised in the Bahamas and living in New York, got involved in a community outreach organization called Art-Start. In 1999 he started an auxiliary program called The Hip Hop Project, which enlisted a group of high school would-be rappers to write and release an album. The Hip Hop Project documentary recounts the last few months before the album's release, and the continuing efforts of the program.
The kids Kazi worked with say that the program gave them hope and a sense of belonging that they wouldn't have felt otherwise. The impact on them was likely augmented, however, by the fact that the promised album took years longer than expected to produce. When Kazi heard the kids' original "gangsta" lyrics and off-tempo rap, he realized that a lot of research and growth was needed to turn them into authentic artists.
He encouraged the kids to mine their own lives and feelings for material, creating art that expressed and represented them as individuals. The emotional work was tough, and by the time Hip Hop Project Vol. I: Are You Feelin' Me was released in 2003, Kazi and the kids had become a kind of family. The glimpses we get of their creative process, though limited, provide the film's most electric moments.
GO WATCH IT IF YOU HAVE NOT ; i loved loved loved it . I was able to really relate to some of the things that were said. It also just reminds you how music can fix anything ; how music can just set you free from anything and everything that will be put in your path. I was very iffy on watching this because I felt they would not show everything ; and just the good in it all ...but it shows the struggle ; the pain ; the downsides ; and the trials and tribulations of life - and how as an artist / writer you can change that - you manifest your own destiny. It helps me heal with struggles I am going through right now ; because it sets you on a positive track. It reminds you that theres so much more to you; and that what you leave on this earth is what matters. To go for what your striving for in full force; with no breaking on the petal. It was exactly what I needed at the right time to just lift me up & shake me out of my negative mind state. So anyone in need of incouragement && positivity should go see it.

If you know me well ; you know I have this great LOVE for NYC. Not only because I am from here ; but I just would not trade it for the world. I have been asked to move out to other cities ; but they are just not for me. When I say I love NYC. I dont mean little bits and peaces of it. I was born & raised in Queens - so that will forever be my heart; But I have been going out to school in Brooklyn & I love everything about it. I literally take hour walks to look at the scenery around me instead of taking the bus or train. I work in Manhattan ; and everytime I step out there - I feel alive ; like anything is possibile. Though I have quite a lot of bad experiences in the Bronx ; I cant help but love the beautiful gardens & parks around there ; and of course Yankee Stadium. Then there is Staten Island ; my new found love. Lol. The ferry ride is just one of the best experiences I have had; and ofcourse all the shopping I did out there - I wouldnt mind doing it all over again. Lol.
So I came up with a collage idea a while back to show my love for NYC; and to give people that are not from here the feel of it and maybe just maybe ; get them to love it too. I will only be showing one; since I have two more that I am currently working on right now as I type actually. Lol. They are all collage art NYC inspired ; & instead of using regular poster paper or canvas - I used a NYC Subway map. I originally got the idea of the map from someone I know who used it to tag there graff name on; and had it up in there room. So I decided to add my twist to it all.
The next one I will be showing ; hopefully by this weekend or next week will be photos I have taken myself of NYC and the parts of it that I feel make NYC what it is and what I love.
The third one I have been working on for a while will promote underground artist/writers/performers. If you know anything about NYC is that it is filled with ambitious talent waiting to be heard ; which is why you see all these stickers and promo tags all over trashcans; mailboxes; and streetsigns. I will be posting many all together and of course add a little twist to it of my own. This one has been taking me by far the longest because I am trying to reach out & find specific artist/graff writers etc to be apart of this. So if you know anyone that needs promo or know of someone that would be interested just email me at : JSAL529@GMAIL.COM

You know when you have this feeling in your gut ; that if you were to try something again it can be even better than the first time? Thats how I feel. So - Sade ; I dont agree with you when you sing " I'ts never as good as the first time ". I feel like you have to give things a 2nd shot to find the real beauty of it. Time is precious; but time changes so many things - and if your lucky time changes things to make them less complicated ; more mature; and more nourishing to the soul & heart. As you get older you become wiser - you gain more confidence & due to experiences we deal with we learn the wrongs & rights of things.
I have grown into the person I have always wanted to be. I am doing everything I have always wanted to do. I used to be shy & timid & scared to speak my mind - now I use my voice for the whole world to hear. I grew into everything I KNEW I could be. & with time I know I will just keep on getting better.
But there are some things and people we lose during the time we are growing and blossoming into these great people we are aiming to become. Its what we all call " bad timing " - all I gotta say is EFF YOU "bad timing" ! Lol. I wish I knew what I had known before ........but then I would not have gone through half the things life threw at me right ? then maybe I wouldnt be the person I am ?
The words I must live by -- to get by ; each & every day from here on.

Sadly; his time came ....I wrote a blog about Guru and his situation when it first appeared to the public - back in February. He was in a comma & there was just a lot of issues going on with his family && what not. Since than there was basically no word about what was going on & if he was doing okay ; etc.
Today we heard confirmation that he had passed away; to his struggle with cancer - which was not known to the public before. He was only 43 years old ; with a lot of passion and talent in him still. Its heartbreaking to see that someone with such wisdom & that used his success to get his story out through his God given talent ; can no longer do that for us & for his fans.
My prayers go out to his family & friends. I can only imagine what they are going through right now. His body may be gone ; but his heart & soul is still with us through his music ♥
If you follow me on twitter ; I will be tweeting my favorite Gangstarr lyrics all of tonight _ follow me if you dont already : Simpllygorjess
My Favorite Gangstarr song !
Sometimes you gotta dig deep, when problems come near
Don't fear things get severe for everybody everywhere
Why do bad things happen, to good people?
Seems that life is just a constant war between good and evil
The situation that I'm facin, is mad amazin
To think such problems can arise from minor confrontations
Now I'm contemplatin in my bedroom pacin
Dark clouds over my head, my heart's racin
Suicide? nah, I'm not a foolish guy
Don't even feel like drinking, or even gettin high
Cause all that's gonna do really, is accelerate
The anxieties that I wish I could alleviate
But wait, I've been through a whole lot of other shit, before
So I oughta be able, to withstand some more

Of course The Light by Common ( is a PURE classic.... but this part two is just BEAUTIFUL. These lyrics remind you that LOVE can conquer all. That LOVE is really all we need in this cold world ♥
It's important we communicate,
& watch this relationship illuminate the world
black pearl in you, is a lover & friend,
picture how your name will sound
with the last name Lynn.
Put a prayer in the air, that it never all end,
& if so, when we come back it'll be better again.
I will be by your side, through the smile & laughs,
the child we have, even when the clouds is bad,
I know your heart had been broken by a love that pass,
& when your not lookin, that's when love can grab.
Sometimes we gotta ask are we movin' too fast?
Ain't no limit to a love that's given from above.
Mean fish, collard greens, corn bread, you be rockin it
Similar values, tho in many ways we opposite.
Attracted to your uh.. & the way that you be poppin it
Brighten my life reminded me to stay positive..

I have gone MIA with my blogging lately. If you know me you know Ive been having some tough times lately. Health wise im not doing so well ; but I believe things will get better in due time if I just keep praying.
I had an amazing weekend though. I have been on some depression type thing cus of issues im dealing with currently ; so I dont even bother going out anymore to have fun - but this weekend I forced myself out & went clubbing with some close friends & the boyfriend & his boys. It was ALOT of fun dancing & drinking. Had a blast; it was a good change of scenery. Then on saturday me and the boyfriend went to go see " Why did I get married too " AMAZING. We both loved it & spoke about it on the whole walk back home. Cannot wait to see the next one ; Im a bit upset on how it ended ....but I guess we will see. Then we also went to the arcade around my way & played race car games & shooting games...he always brings out the inner kid in me. Lol.
SO all in all - it was a good weekend ; and I am grateful for having the people I have in my life. ESPECIALLY right now when Im feeling all types of ways. They keep me grounded ; and remind me of my reason to stay alive & breathing.
But yeah - just thought it would be good to explain to you all why I havent blogged. I will be catching up this week && today when I have the time though. I have also gotten in contact with some people I was having issues with ..and I am happy to say that slowly but surely my friends are coming back & the issues are being resolved. Which is a great thing - cus I need all the support I can get right now ♥
Stay blessed && Be safe my lovelys ! :)
Posted by gor(jess). @ 3:28 PM
Lately ; I have been feeling alone.
Yes I have an amazing family
A Greattttttt Boyfriend ♥
&& some close friends i love oh so much.
But I am also feeling like im slowly losing friends; one by one.
Like the bond is not there anymore.
It sucks to see someone you saw as family before & feel awkwardness..
like as though we were never best friends before ; it sucks.
It hurts me more so ; than upsets me.
I wonder if it bothers them also? or if they honestly dgaf !
I hate losing people. When you have someone in your life for so long && then that bond is gone ..you go from speaking or seeing them daily - to nothing at all. It feels like your mourning a death. As though you reallly lost that person.
I just want things to go back to how they used to be ;
I just dont know how to get there again.
Is it too far away to fix ......or is there time to reconnect ?
Leave the past in the past ; or work it out?
Talking for hours ; inside jokes ; being there when we were down & out ...being eachothers crutches ; && having fun together - doing absolutely nothing.
I miss it ; & feel like im slowly being replaced by others that came after me to fill that friend void. That spot thats meant to be for me.
Posted by gor(jess). @ 5:24 PM
The extended version ...
Aidan? OH ; EM ; GEE ! & best part of it all -- it comes out on my birthday weekend ; just like the first movie did two years ago :) It will be an amazing bday present <3
Posted by gor(jess). @ 5:21 PM
I dont want to regret anything I do in life. Then again they say all that happens ; happens for a reason. Better to regret ; then to fake through life ? right ?
I have been dealing with a lot lately ; to the point where I cant sleep at night - crazy anxiety attacks that keep me up every single night. & mornings where my head hurts so much from just thinking way too much on too many things. You would think work & school can keep me busy - but it still manages to break into my brain. Something is telling me that I need to forget about making decisions .....and instead focus on me. For the first time just do everything for ME ; and nothing else. Do what I gotta do and learn to love myself more. Take myself out; romance myself. I dont think I have been giving my self that love that I deserve to give myself. Sure its great to have a boyfriend that loves me ; romances me ; and treats me like a princess......but whats the point if I cannot do that for MYSELF ?
It makes me want to drop it all ; be selfish && be in a relationship with me myself & I. But I feel letting go of what I have now will be marked as one of the most BIGGEST mistakes of my life.....like it will hurt me more than I have been hurting trying to make the decision itself...if that makes any sense ; Lol.
What to do ; What to do.
Cant I just invent a time machine & go back to when I was 8 years old playing with barbies && I changed my name to sporty spice? SIGH.
Posted by gor(jess). @ 4:49 PM
I was speaking to a co - worker of mine & some great homegirls that I have about love ; and losing it && falling back into it. The bad & good of it all. && it stuck out to me when she said ; well you never forget your first love.
&& that just made me sigh at how true that is to me. Lets see -- my first love; was my high school sweetheart. Back ; way back 6 years ago but still there isn't a day when I don't think about him and worry whether or not he's doing okay for himself in the world. I rarely ever speak to him ...considering the fact that we are both in new relationships. But its like I cant help but still have that love for him ; like if he needed something - id be there no doubts about it.
Is that how it always is with your firt love? I stop and think if maybe it is just because he was my first real boyfriend; the first man I introduced to my family ; the first person I told I loved & loved me back. My first EVERYTHING. You always remember the first time you do or say something ....so is that why he wil always be ingraved in my mind and thoughts?
I guess I will never know exactly why we never are able to forget our first loves ; but I do know that it made me older and wiser. Sometimes first love teaches us a thing or two -- and not necessarily lessons we wanted to learn.
Posted by gor(jess). @ 4:15 PM
Every decision you make in your life will make or break you. So it is best to sit & wait it out..before impulsively doing what you think is best. They say sometimes its best to make decisions with your heart ; rather than your mind. Then theres some that say otherwise. So how do we know which to do? Which will benefit us better? What deceives you the most...your heart ; or your mind? I think thats one of the toughest questions ever to me. && how long is TOO long to make a decision? You have to sit down and way the pros & the cons to the decisions you make .....but who knows how long that will take. I am a very bipolar person ; so that makes matters even harder for me. I will feel something one day & the next day feel the quite opposite of it. Pray - pray until you find a solution. Get on your knees and ask God to give you your answer.......I guess that is what I will keep on doing.
Time - just give it time. Then you will know .....or thats what they say. HOW long...once again. Time is so precious. Theres not enough time in a day ; and time is the one thing you cant get back .....so why give it time? Why not just go for it now. But when you go for it ; your risking everything & anything you got. I guess you gotta stop & think if its worth the risk ...is it worth the pain if it doesn't catch you when you fall ? is it worth losing everything you know; is it worth looking stupid?
The smallest decisions ; can make the biggest changes/ impacts in your life ....
If only staples really did sell an easy button that worked.

A while back when me and my boyfriend were just friends we told eachother a bunch of things we have not done in life that want to do. One of my things was take the staten island ferry boat. Yes - I live in NY & have never been on the ferry all my 23 years living. Lol. So today we took advantage & went. He has family out there so it was tons of fun hanging out with his cousins- shopping; eating & talking. They are the sweetest - & I just really love his family. It was a great bonding experience. My first time ever in staten island was a success !
Here are pictures of us on the ferry ♥

I guess you can call me a hopeless romantic at times. I love showing the person I love that I am here for them in all aspects of there life ; but in a different & more personal way. Things many people wouldnt do. I like popping peoples cherries on first time things too Lol. So if you read my blog before - my boyfriend just recently had his first ever performance which he did amazing at ! So I got him this the next day ....
