Life as of now...

Life/Work/School
A lot and nothing much has been going on lately. They only thing that I've been doing is working. Work has taken over my life to be honest. I don't even know if I'm to go back to school this semester. Anyway I've been away too long. To be honest I just haven't been in the mood to blog or to do anything for that matter. My life has be so chaotic. I will try my best to blog more often than I do.

Love life
Its existing. I'm actually talking to someone right now. We're not forcing things. We're just taking things slow and seeing where everything goes. I like this guy a lot. He's the first guy I've liked like this in a long time. I'm not trying to think ahead and start naming our babies or any of that stuff. I'm just having fun. I'm exploring my options. I'm learning to let my guard down with him. I've learning to trust him. I'm learning that I need to stop playing hard to get. Its taking me a little time but I'm getting there. I'm just glad that he understand me and he just taking with me. I really like him "inserts blushing face" Who knows maybe in a month or two from now we would probably make things official and become exclusive. We'll see..

Hair
This month make it 10 months since I big chopped...My hair is going strong and growing fast. Everyday I'm learning and loving my hair more and more.  Its getting bigger and bigger. My hair as of right now its almost near my shoulders. Oh yeah I recently straighten my hair. OMG I was soo scared to flat iron my hair, I didn't want my hair to get heat damage but thankfully I didn't. I'm enjoying this hair journey. I can't wait to see my hair a couple of years from now. I have mini twist in my hair now. I'm so ready to take them out already. I miss my fro lol. My goal for my hair is to get to BSL, hopefully I will get there 2 or 3 years from now.. Well thats all for now..Til next time

Little Things

You don't know how many times I will the little things in my  life get me down. I would  get pissed off because I cant find my keys or my shoes or a pair of my favorite jeans.  I will also let  people get the best of me. Its funny how any little thing can break someones happiness. You could be having an awesome day but the one thing or person can do or say the wrong thing to you and your day is ruined. Those little bad things should define how the rest of you day will go. Its best to look at all the good that is happening in you life. The Good will always out weigh the bad, so when something minor does just brush it off your shoulder and smile and be happy.

Dating Rules From my future Self



     During my countless search of movies to download I came across this web series..Dating Rules from my Future Self..I was very intrigued by the concept of the show. Your future self contacts you to guide you from making that big mistake they wish they never happened in your relationship.  I know I'm not the only person who thinks it would be kind of interesting to see my future self.  I wish my future self would have came into my life to guide and stop me from making that stupid decision that I regret but I know that will never happen. If you guys are interested in watching you can find it here  I think you will really enjoy it! I just wish that both season had more episodes and I hoping they come out with another season.

Just thinking..

    Although I don't know what tomorrow may have in store for me I know that its going to be great. Sometimes, even when I'm not having such a great day, I will never say "I'm having a bad day". Just because I'm living, I'm breathing, I get to see my family and friends another day. Its sad to say but some people don't get to see tomorrow or the days that come after that. I've learned that to never speak  negativity to your day. Even when I'm feeling down or groggy, I will not let that define how the rest of my day is going to be. I've also learned that I should not let yesterday's crap determine how the next day is going to be. So this quote suits how I should look at everyday..Look at the next day as a new beginning of new opportunities and whatever I want it to be. So no matter what I'm going through this day or the next, I will just remember that "Tomorrow is going to be the best day EVER"

Another life update

Life 

Well..I started my first day at work on Friday!! It was pretty interesting, I had some fun because i get to learn something new. I work behind the scenes, I work in the stock room, un-boxing and putting things on the shelves. Sounds fun right?! lol. I know its not the ideal job but I'm just grateful that I have a job. I feel like this is a legit job just because they do direct deposit. When I found out that the do direct deposit and I got a legit name tag, I was like COOLLLL in my white girl voice lol!!! Anyway,I'm just a little nervous about how I will juggle school work and work at the same time. This is something new for me because my other two job didn't require much from me. School starts next week and I don't have my I.D or anything. I have to make sure my financial aid is set done and then I have to go to the EOF program and make sure that is all set and done as well. I'm a little excited and nervous about school because I'm actually attending a University. But I think I will okay and I will get the hang of things when it comes to working and going to school.

Hair

My hair has grown so much since I big chopped in January. I love my hair. Its soo thick and healthy, I would never go back to relaxers. I also colored my hair I believe a month ago. Oh yeah this month makes 7 months being natural!! OMGEEE That pretty cool. I'm giving my hands and hair a break so I go box-braids. I'm trying to take care of my hair even though its in braids. So can some help a sister out and give me some advice on how to care for hair when its in braids. I planning on keeping these braids in until October or November (most likely October) lol...We shall see about that.

I'm just happy I get to put another job on my resume. Tomorrow shall be fun and interesting. I will keep you guys updated.

The single life....

People put as being single is a death sentence! Being single is not bad at all. Of course, there will be times when I get a little lonely, wanting to be in a relationship, kiss and cuddle up with someone. Having all that would be nice. Thinking about getting in a relationship right now at this point of my life wouldn't be the best decision. I am very selfish. I've learn through an a interesting experience that I am not ready for that type of commitment. I've learned that I like my own space..I love me time...like all that time. Don't get me wrong I like having friends and spending time with my good friends but to be in a committed relationship ehhhh not so much. Being single I'm learning who I am as young adult. Things that I didn't know before when I was focusing on being in a relationship with a guy I had no business being with. I've also been building my relationship with God because who know  you better than God. I just believe no one should get in any kind of relationship if they have personal issues such as self-hate, insecurities and not knowing who they are. I don't know how many times I've seen couples break up because they are super insecure and/or try to find someone to love them when they don't even love/know themselves. I've learned that first hand no one can love/know you like you can..I think being single is the best thing for me to do or for anyone to do. The more you love yourself and know yourself when you do decide date or be in a committed relationship everything will fall into place.

No matter what you're going through


No matter what I was going through God always made a way out of no way. I just thank God for being good to me, even when I was good to myself. When I know it may seems like God isn't there but he is always there. Like most my mother and father will say "He may not come when you want him but he's right on time" It took me awhile to get that, every time I prayed for something I would get a little impatient because I wanted him to do it for my right then and there but I've learned that if God wanted me to have that specific thing he would have gave it to me already. Just like I would pray to God for a job, I wanted to get that job right then but as the months pass in the mist of my waiting I learned to have faith and wait. During that waiting period I just graduated and I was jobless, I didn't know where I was going to go to school or work but When I did that God made a way! I will going to school at the end of this month and I will be start my training at my new job soon! God has truly blessed me, and I am truly grateful!

Total solitude

I don't know about anyone else but I truly enjoy my own company. Living in a house with 9 people can be a bit overwhelming. The house is always live. No one really has a chill button (sometimes). But when everyone has something to do and I'm the only one in the house I just take it in because I won't get that type of solitude in long while. Even when everyone is home I would take it upon myself and just go to the mall or go to the movies, take a walk around the block by myself. Its a breathe of fresh air. Being a single has given me the chance to learn how to really enjoy my own company. I'm young and curious about the world and I don't need a relationship right now..As much I would love to be in a relationship I'm in no rush. Til then I will enjoy myself, explore the world, read a book, go the local cafe' and enjoy the scenery, most of all enjoy myself.

All Black Affair

All Black Affair
Today, I woke up 7:30 am for the interview that was at scheduled for 11:30 am..I was little nervous but I just had this confidence that everything will be okay. Since I woke up super early I prayed and read a lil bit of the bible. After I did all that I got ready and left the house around 9:20 to catch the bus, then caught the train to my destination. I got to the mall super early so I just walked around to pass the time. When the time came I went to the human resource room to get the interview over with. The man that interviewed was very nice and handsome! I was really distracted by how handsome he was. Of course I didn't distract me too long. He asked me simple questions, basic question based on my experiences and that was it. I said all of that to say I GOT THE JOBBBBB!!!! I want to dance like a manic when I found out that I got the job! I had to tell myself to "be cool Tracel be cool" literally. I am ecstatic! I know God is not going to give a job that I can't handle..The job is simple I will be basically I will give detail abou the job in a later post. The job does require everyone to wear black!

Capturing the moment

This picture above describes me all the way...I'm all about capturing every moment of my life. Although I don't have a real camera I will take my IPhone out in a heartbeat. Its not the best quality its there to fills the void until I get enough money to get a real camera. I know my family is annoyed when I always want to take a picture or even record a video. I just wish they understood how much capturing that moment means to me because once that moment is gone its gone forever. Once I get my camera my family better brace themselves for intense camera time! My love for photography has always been real ever since I was preteen I just never had the proper equipment or the money. I seriously can't wait to get my camera, I cant wait to do what I love to do. Til then I will be taking photos on my iphone and fangirling on my favorite photographers.

My Tv Obessions pt. 2



I'm not a huge fan of reality tv shows but there are some that have changed my mind. Hollywood Exes is one of those shows that I fell in love with. Mainly because of the "D" which stands for DRAMAAAA!!! But with that drama they do have their moments where there is laughter and fun. If you haven't seen or heard of the show I will just tell you the bulk of it. Basically this show is about a group women who were share their live with the world who married to famous actors, sports players, singers and etc. Some of the famous people are  Eddy Murphy, R. Kelly, Prince, and other men I totally can't remember. I'm not really good at explaining things so I'm going to leave the info here so if you like you can get a full extent of what this show is all about. I really think you guys will like this show. 



  
O.M.G That's all i can really say! Well that's a lie but this season has me on a roller coaster. With new characters and stories my mind is just on a world wind. This seriously the best season by far. Scott is really coming into his own, I'm seeing a whole new side of Derek, Allison is stronger than ever, Styles  is just style but sexier lol. Lidia has become very interesting. I hope i'm not saying too much for those who haven't seen this show. I just really advise you Teen Wolf virgins to get watch this show. I think you would regret not watching it before. If you are that dark, twisted,suspenseful type person I'm telling you, you will love it. 



This show is a provocative yet sophisticated drama about 4 women who are friends that have an interesting story to tell. From a husband who faked his death to a women who is being charged for being in an affair with one of clients. Even though these women go through a lot, they are all strong independent women which i really like about this show. When I first heard about this show I thought it was going to be about these women who will sleep around with married men but that wasn't the case. I was pleasantly surprised on how much I love this show. If you are interested and want to catch up with most the juicy drama click here to watch all full episodes. 


If your life lacks any drama this show will fill in for what you lack! This show is scandalous and sexy. This show is evolves about these women who are dancers for a basketball team. The main character of the story has more drama then me. Asha is a sweet girl who just loves to dance and doesn't want anything or anyone to detour her away from her first love. But of course that never works out..In the mist of her enjoying her dance career she finds out who her father is, she's being seduce by one of the basketball players (mind you she already has a boyfriend) but she is doing her best to stay away from him. Her mother use to be a dancer for the same team and she tried her best to convince her not to join but you know she didn't listen. Among Asha's drama there is also drama within the group of dancers. But i don't want to give away too much. Besides the drama I love the dancing I wish i could dance! For more info click here  



Before I get into anything does anyone else have a crush on Avan Jogia! 'Cause I do! lol Anyway Twisted centers on a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past, who recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood. He becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is surprisingly found dead in her home. that's where the drama begins. May I add Avan character is sexy!  I mean who wouldn't fall in love with him. His co-hosts are awesome actresses. I"m loving how everything is slowly coming together! I can't wait to see what happens. The season isn't over there are three episodes left! I think you guys will like it 

     What are your T.v obsessions?

Life as we know it...

School 
Has been interesting...i guess..I please to announce that I will be attending college this fall to get my BA in Education. I start in two weeks!! Pray for me!  To be honest my not totally sure if I really want to stick to just Education. Hey, maybe I will have a minor. I'm not to thrilled that I'm going back being that I just graduated this May; but i guess its for the greater good. Even though I'm not excited as I want to be for school I know that everything will be alright. Especially if I study like I'm suppose to. This year I just pray that I have excellent professors, decent classmates and a bless school year and that I don't procrastinate like I always do. We'll See

Life
My life has been interesting...has its ups and downs of course, but I'm happy that I'm still blessed to see another day. Nothing much has really been going on. I didn't work all summer which sucks and which means I've been in the house almost everyday except Sundays. Other than that I hate it when I'm home like that. I'm so use to working and doing stuff. Since I didn't work I basically been filling out job applications online and I am happy that to say that I have a job interview this Friday. Only the Lord knows how much this means to me. I just pray that the whole interview goes great..so great that they will hire me on the spot. I honestly hate job interviews but I got to do what I got to do.

In other news
I am embarking on Awesomely Luvvie's #31writenow blog challenge. Its basically a challenge for bloggers to write a post everyday for the month of August. Since I've been slacking with my posts I thought this will make up for my bad blogging. I'm already a couple of days late but I will make the most out of the rest of the days. This shall be fun.

At this moment i don't have a measuring tape around to get the actual measurements maybe next time. In other news I have the bad case of HIH (hands in hair syndrome) I just can't stop touching my hair but I am going to try my best for the rest of the summer to not touch my hair because I don't want make my hair fizzier and all that good stuff. But I've had that syndrome even when I had a relaxer is just a bad habit I need to break. I need a protective style so i can give my hands a break. I might get Havana/Marley twist or goddess braids , we'll see.. til next time

So I graduated!

Its been a couple of weeks since I graduated from college but it still feels too surreal. I couldn't be more proud of myself for getting my degree! I'm definitely going to miss all of the people I hung out with because we all are going to be busy but I know we are going to make time to see each other. Throughout my whole college experience I didn't think I would say I graduated. But if it wasn't for God giving me strength and for my family that stayed on me to get my head straight I wouldn't have graduated. As of right now I don't know where I'm going or if I will go back to school (which I probably will) but I know that God has something awesome planned for me in the future. For graduation I wore a red dress with hearts and my hair was in mini-twist..It was nice while it lasted, I missed my fro too much. lol. Anyway the ceremony was pretty quick. The key-note speaker was very inspiring and funny. I believe 1,000 of us graduated but only 800 walked across the stage which was another reason why the ceremony went by fast. All in all it was great ceremony and it was a night I will never forget.

Growth!!!

It's crazy how fast my hair grew since I did my big chop in January! When people said hair grows fast once all the relaxed ends are off weren't lying! I honestly didn't know my hair was going to be this big when I took out my box-braids after two months. I'm very happy with my growth! The pic below on the left that I was my hair in February and of course the one on the right is my hair now! I love seeing the difference. I just can't wait for it to get bigger.

I'm so proud of myself with sticking to my gut to go natural its funny how my sister was the one who reminded me that I'm one year post relaxer lol..Its just feels..awesome lol

I still have my box braids in my hair, I had them in for approximately 2 months! Being that I've had them in for 2 months I can't wait to see the growth! Its probably not a lot but hey, its still growth. Plus I am soo ready to take these suckers out!! 2 months is too long..I miss my hair. I miss touching it, styling it and all that good stuff...Even my niece misses my hair!! I plan on taking them out in the beginning of  May after I take graduation pictures.

I'm Alive!!!

Well i've been soo busy with school and work I haven't been able to blog like I want to. I know I said I was going to do a review on the hair care product Nothing But...I will do a separate blog post. But I will just say I loveeeee ittttt!!! Anyway, school has been a drag for me! I haven't been motivated at all. I'm just over it and cant wait to graduate in May. I had to withdrawal from my online bio class. It was too much for me. But the rest of my classes are pretty easy. Work is okay, its work. There's nothing much to say really. lol

As far as my hair, I've made it to my 1 month being natural. My hair has grown since I big chop. People weren't lying when they said your hair grows fast when you chop of the relaxed ends. Of course, I had my withdrawals but I had to remind myself  why I wanted to be natural in the first place. My family is adjusting to my new hair. Surprisingly my father is liking my hair and he was the main one that was against me going natural. My sisters and mother had their doubts but they also came around and they have been helping as far as styles and products is concerned. I love my natural hair and I don't think I will getting a relaxer anytime soon.

Its my Birthday!!!

I'm officially 22 years old! Although I look much younger! *Parents have good genes* lol . Anyway for my birthday I decided to straighten my hair! That was a major fail. I didn't even take a picture that's how ugly it was to me anyway! But all i have to do really is find a hair stylist who does natural hair and give my hair a nice shape to it. Although I didn't take a pic of my of my start hair but I have the before my hair was blown out and after i blew it out


My hair is big! lol. Considering I'm 10 months post. I love my natural hair. Some people don't understand why I went natural but they don't need too. Anyway getting off topic. I thought it would be nice to see my hair straight. I will just say I would rather have my hair in its natural state for a long while. Definitely next time when i straighten my hair I will post it. 
As you can see i decided not to wear my hair out for church today! Thank God for beanies!!
For my birthday, I went to church but other than that I'm not doing anything big being that I don't have money or any friends that are available for me to hang with. I'm just going to watch a movie and have dinner with my family. My mother cooked me whatever I wanted for my birthday so that's her bday gift to me. Then the rest of the family is going to give me my bday punches. Yes we still give bday punches lol!  I don't feel any different being 22, as if i was suppose but I'm looking forward to see what this age has to offer. I want to wish everyone whos birthday is in February a Happy Bday and God bless!

It took me a long time to really grasp this quote when I was a teenager and even as an adult. Of course its inevitable that every one wants to be liked or loved once in their life or another. As much as I wanted people to like me, I had to realize that I have to like myself first. Plus there are going to be people who will even hate me for no reason. What I've come to realize with maturity is that no matter what you do or say, I can't afford to live my life based on whether someone does/doesn't like me. There's more to life then just wondering who likes me or not. Like I always say The Lord will send me someone special in due time. But in the mean time I will live my life to the fullest, enjoy my own company, take myself out on a date (yes, myself) just until that special someone comes along.

My TV obsessions, so far




I'm in love with this show! It remind me so much of Baldwin Hills and Harlem Heights. I'm a sucker for drama and a great relationship amongst friends. I love how the stick together through the good and the bad that happens to them. I wish I had a group of friends that them. To be honest when I first watched the show I didn't care for it but the more episodes I watched the more I started loving each individual on the show. I hope when the season ends it get picked up for another season.


O.M.GEEEE I am beyond obsessed with this show! The show is even better because my favorite actress Kerry Washington is the main character of this show. Although I hate the fact that she is having a secret love affair with the President. I guess I can't help but love the fact of the secret love affair because its a secret lol.  I know that sounds weird. But I often wonder when will she stop settling being his mistress knowing the fact that he would never leave his wife. Plus she has another man that wants to be with her. If i was her I would try my best to forget about the president and go with the man that really wants her. Besides that I love Kerry's character Olivia Pope. She knows how to get things done. Even when no one knows what is going on Olivia Pope knows. Even if she doesn't know she will find out. She always get her way. lol. This show literally has me at the edge of my seat. Thursdays are my Scandal days. 



If you guys haven't seen this show before, you should watch it. I highly recommend this show. If you are into Vampires, Love Triangles, Drama, Suspense and more its all in this show. I cant count how many times I cry, yelled at the tv (yes, Literally yell). Just like scandal this show has me at the edge of my seat. You never know what is going to come next. I love every characters, even the evil characters makes me love them, even though I know I should hate them because they are pure EVILLLLL. This show puts me in the mind of Twilight but instead of the love triangle between a werewolf and a vampire but its between two sexy vampires. I know that's even better. I can not get enough of this show. 


There are only 2 episodes but of this show but I am completely hooked. I love how things are going so far. The fashion in this show is very vintage and retro. I love it. I always love the 80's fashion. Anyway, I love all the characters. From Carrie to her friends and the love interest. I can't wait to see more. 


What are your tv obsessions?

Length Check #1




I think my hair is pretty long considering I transitioned for nine months. I have cut more of the relaxed ends after this picture but the length is still the same. I plan on doing length checks every 2 to 4 months. Well that's the plan but we'll see what happens. Til next time

My first twist out/update post Bc, curl pattern, etc

To honest I did not expect for my first twist out to look nice. Being that I did my around 6 am because i couldn't sleep last night. When I took it out I was freakin excited being that it was my first good twist out since my big chop. I had a few people who didn't like my hair, but I'm not going to let their opinions get to me. After my big chop I had to clip a few more relaxed ends, I plan to give my fro a shape.

My twist out
I've never been in love with my hair. I really don't miss my relaxed hair.As far as curl pattern or type, my hair in the front is very wavy, on both side and in the middle of my head I have ringlet type of curls and on different pieces of my are really coily or don't have a curl pattern at all. Regardless of how my hair naturally curls I'm just love it  Yeah I know that it has only been a couple of days. I'm just in the product junkie stage where I was to try everything and see what my hair loves. As of right now I'm in love with twist outs, I believe that's going to be my go-to for a while. Since I cut my hair I've never felt more like my self! I hope that doesn't sound weird lol. Til next time

So I did the Big Chop!!!



OMGEEE!! I am so happy!!! January 14th  marks the date. I took out my Senegalese twist Sunday and I decided to wash it Monday. As I was washing it and detangling my hair, I was just getting sick and tired the two textures. So at first i was hesitant because I was going to let my cousin do it but I didn't want to wait that long. Plus i didn't have any money to pay her to do it. As i was cutting my hair was just fascinated by my hair. I want to do so much to it. I love my hair!! I'm not even going to try to convince my family to like it. All my sisters and mother kept on asking why did I wait or hope that I didn't stunt my growth. As of right now I'm not mad that my sisters and mother don't particularly like my hair but I know they will come around. I know they just felt like I should  have waited a little longer. My brothers pick at me calling me the mother from Good Times lol. I don't regret my decision,I knew that I was ready. I still have a few relaxed ends but that could easily be fixed. My natural hair is very different from my relaxed hair so I'm slowly adjusting to my my natural texture. In the mean time I'm just going to enjoy what God has gave me. In the picture I attempted my first twist out and I kind of like it. Well til next time

Accepting my natural hair texture


When I started this hair journey I've not only learned to love myself more but I've learned to love my natural hair. Although I'm not fully natural, I do see and feel my curl pattern and I'll be honest as I started my hair I was soooo into hair typing. I would look at my hair and play a guessing game of what type my hair is. I've just come to the conclusion that whatever my hair type falls under I will love it no matter what! I've come across MahoganyCurls video of accepting your hair type, and I thought this was perfect for me and for anyone who is transitioning and who is already natural to watch who might have a hard accepting their hair type. Hope it helps you as much as it helped me.

9 month post relaxer

I am so ready to do my b/c. I believe as soon as I take out my Senegalese Twist. I know yall must get tired of me talking about my hair. lol. I'm just really excited. It just sucks I don't have a good camera to record it all. But my iphone will have to do for now. Being that I'm going to do my big chop I'm thinking about starting a youtube. I have a youtube channel but no videos. So I will just put aside my fear of talking to a camera and being viewed by alot of people. I shall see what happens. I'm just really excited about this hair journey, aside getting ridiculed about what i should do or shouldn't do with my hair, and how short my hair will be when I cut off all the relaxed and all that crap. I just believe that everyone is obsessed with long hair and just can't imagine me with short curly hair. Although at the end of the day I'm going to do what I want to do with my hair. I'm realizing I complain alot on here lol...No bueno..I know that can be quite annoying..I guess I'm just frustrated. But from now on I will try my best to not rant so much.  The next time I post something about my hair I will be all Natural!!!

Hello 2013


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! OMGOSHHHH 2013 is finally here. As I enter this year, I look back at 2012 with a smile. Although I didn't accomplish everything I wanted to do that year, I will make up for this year. I really don't have no regrets, just lessons learned. Overall 2012 was a great year. I'm looking forward to what this year has to offer. I'm expecting this year to be filled awesomeness lol. I will be graduating with my associates degree in Early Childhood Education and I will be 22 years old and much more. Who knows I may meet the guy of my dreams, travel the world, meet new people. I just feel that this is going to be THE year for me. I know that sounds really cliche' but i really feel it. This year I will not let fear get in the way of what I want to do in life and career. With that being said I hope everyone has a great, safe and prosperous New Year !
