If I were a boy....but why would I want to be?

It's been over a decade since I cued my first record at a real party, for a real dance floor. I remember when I'd get so caught up in the music that I wouldn't stop to look up and or around me. It's almost as if I kept my head down. Maybe I was affraid that I just might stand tall enough for everyone to notice me.

When I was in college I dated a boy who was exactly my height and when I wore high heels, I towered over him. For nearly two years I only wore flats and I hate flats.

I've always done what I've had to do, to get where I want to go and be who I want to be. Sometimes I wonder why I have this gift of brilliance and ambition but yet I'm too scared to let it shine. Sometimes when people look at me as I stand on a stage in the center of everything, I can see the hate in their eyes. The higher the stage goes, the stronger the hate grows. I suppose I could just jump off, face down so that nobody will hate me again but believe it or not I did that already.

This time, I'm just going to look strait back at those venomous eyes and smile, I'm going to be turning heads and I'm going to wear the sexiest pair of stilettos, with the sexiest dress, hair done, nails done as I tower over the DJ booth, with my shoulders back and head up high and this time I'm going to watch the world as they notice me passing by.


  1. I believe it was Sinatra who said, "The best revenge is massive success"...so as the confidence and hard work breeds the well deserved praise, kudos and trappings of accomplishment, hell, enjoy not only the ride...but enduring the massive amounts of blood, sweat and tears expended as you traveled there...word.

  2. After a decade in the NFL searching for the right pieces and the right team, Carson Palmer has found a home in Arizona. NFL Jerseys And the Cardinals want him to stay awhile.

    The team announced Friday that it signed Palmer to a three-year extension, which will keep him under contract through 2017. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the pact is worth $50 million with roughly $20 million guaranteed through 2015, according to a source who has seen the deal.

    It's a remarkable story for a quarterback nearly a decade removed from his playing for his only legitimate title-contending team -- the 2005 Cincinnati Bengals with Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Palmer tore his knee ligaments in the team's first Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes playoff game that season, sparking an NFL rule change and a wandering search for Palmer's mojo. Enter Bruce Arians.

    The Cardinals coach has an aggressive vertical style that complements Palmer's game, and the weapons to make him look better. Palmer is no longer a top-five quarterback like he once cheap sale jerseys was, but he still throws four to five passes each game that few quarterbacks could make. He's supported by NFL Jerseys Store a wildly talented supporting cast and a strong defense. Perhaps most importantly, he's learned to limit his mistakes.

    The contract extension indicates that Palmer will get more than just this season to win it all in Arizona, but we suspect very little is promised after 2015. Nike Roshe Run Palmer knows more than anyone this is a year-to-year league, and the Cardinals will likely build in contractual protection so they can easily move on from the 34-year-old if he nosedives new nike nfl jerseys or gets injured.

    The contract, however, does take the pressure off Arizona from finding a "quarterback of the future." They could still draft a quarterback to develop in the middle rounds next season if anyone strikes Arians' fancy, but they are comfortable with Palmer and backup wholesale jerseys Drew Stanton in the meantime. This Nike Air Max 90 Cardinals team has a chance to go deep in the playoffs, and Palmer must relish this final chance to rewrite his career.
