13 things I'm leaving behind in 2013

Whats up wreckless people?!

Its been a minute… I’m actually tired of this being the premise for most my blogs so just get on board with my random activity.

This morning I woke up searching in my dad’s apartment for the underwear I accidentally left drying on his heater(yeah I know, long story). Anyway I’m glad I found it because that’s not the best excuse a man can give his wife for her finding someone else’s underwear; “what? Huh? those are my daughter’s”. We were laughing about this and then I started to share the story of the time I got caught sneaking on the mat bus here in New York and I got to thinking, “wow there are a lot of things I must stop doing immediately” So I thought I’d share the run down of what Aminah Imani(yes I did just do this) will be leaving behind in 2013!

1. Sneaking on any form of transportation (lol don’t even ask)

First and foremost I vow to NEVER sneak on another bus EVER! Between hiding in the restroom on the mega bus because they were thoroughly looking at tickets and walking off the select bus service and being greeted by a swat team of nine police officers asking, “where’s your receipt mam”, this will be the last time you hear of Aminah doing some dumb stuff like this! Clearly I try to get away with a lot of things but this will no longer be one of them!!!

2. Roommates!

Lord jesus take the wheel!! I’m super done with Craigslist posts, friends moving in, court houses, disputes, police officers at the home, people stealing my keys; I am done with it all!! 2014 I will celebrate my independence as the sole individual in my apartment and only have to deal with my few personalities. Even if you need somewhere to stay for a week, my apartment will not be for you, NO! NO! NO!

3. Wakk ass friends!

Bruh! 2013 I have dealt with females I’ve considered friends who are wanting to date my ex, to wanting to be best friends with my ex, bringing negative vibes in my life with stupid advice, just being wakk. I leave this foolishness in 2013, all y’all wakk hos can go ride the biggest penis to the end of the earth and burn in hell. Too harsh? Well its real. Ala vista, you all stay in 2013:-)

4. White lies.

Everybody tells them and we all rely on them when we necessarily don’t want to tell the entire truth. Remember when your friend was having an event and you didn’t want to go because you wanted to watch television and snuggle in your bed all night instead, so you would text her like, “girl I’m sorry, I’m caught up at work”. Yeah no more of that dumb activity. I already started just telling people “look, I’m not doing it” and keep it moving. The best feeling is being one hundred percent honest and not worrying about covering any lies.

5. Arguing with fools.

I was just on the phone the other day when someone was trying to defend their wrong doing as something not that serious. Look fool, wrong is wrong and if you want to sit on the phone and argue why you don’t want to feel bad and whatever, do that on your own. I’m not going to hang up on your face but when you don’t hear me respond that means my phone is in the other room and I walked away to something important.

6. Spending money I don’t have. I just think I’m too grown for this. It was fun to live life on the immature side while it lasted but between doctor visits and unexpected happenings, its best to save money and enjoy life within your means, tip you ball so hard motherfuckers can’t find you. That shit cray:-)

7. Weaves and anything that doesn’t belong to me.

My hair was laid with the weaves a few times this year and I must say, “she did that”. But I’m so over it. I don’t know if I’m going to turn into mama Africa but one thing I’m tired of seeing on other women is long fake lashes, weaves, and fake nails. Nothing against you ladies, at all, some of you look amazing but then there are some that I just hurt for because they look a Hot Mess. For me, I prefer no more weaves and fake tings(jamaican accent), hopefully I will inspire a few others to just embrace what you have:-)

8. Popeyes.

If you know me, you know that this is a tough one for me. But it has to go. I actually gave it up for the past four months already and I know that this is officially the end of our relationship. We’ve been going strong since I’ve been living in New York, so that’s four years now but I know it’s not good for me on any levels so I’m leaving it behind. It’s not you Popeyes, its me:/

9. Torn clothing and shoes.

I know y’all are thinking, “what?” but yes I am infamous for turning a tear into what I may consider fashion. I’m also handy with animal glue, super glue, a hot glue gun, and needle/thread… lol don’t judge. But before this new year comes, i already went through the closet and let go things I have held on to but need to be tossed out. The things that aren’t too horrible, you can always sell because another man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

10. Explaining myself to people.

The end. No explanation needed. I said I’m not doing it:-)

11. Alcohol.

If you know me this is a tough one but it’s already been done. This should’ve happen when I was cited for an open container on the way to the bowling alley but I let things linger and now I’m two steps from alcohol’s anonymous. It may not be that serious but looking back at 2013, I can recall at least five holidays where alcohol played the worst part supposed celebrations. 2014 I will no longer be able to blame it on the goose.

12. My exes belongings.

The old Aminah would keep these old boxers, shoelaces, and t-shirts lying around somewhere but the new Aminah threw it out. These one pair of briefs were a tough one to give up, they were extremely comfortable but all of those belongings have to go exactly where these exes are. I’m not sure their exact location but this stuff is hitting the local garbage if they happen to bump into their owner then look at that coincidence. You can’t bring in the new with the old. We all know that;)

13. Last but not least; Drama

Sometimes its like my entire life is a dramatic soap opera and for a while I have to admit I fed into it all and kept it alive but when I tell you that I have to get on my grown and sexy living life now, I do. Adios drama. I will miss you, you kept me young for a second but once that stress hit me, I was done. I just can’t get with it. So to all the coworkers, wakk friends, and angry birds out there in the world; stay to yourself. I’m spreading love!!!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my list of farewells to 2013, I wish I could say these were resolutions but 2014 isn’t even here yet and they are gone and it feels great already. What are some things you need to say goodbye to or already have? Like and comment below:-)

Stay wreckless,
