Add it up.

As my collegiate graduation date starts to get closer than not,
I’m sitting back thinking, “I am one blessed lil’ snot.’

Academically It’s true.
I’m barely short of my desired GPA of 4.2.

Other than that,
I’m shaping up to be quite the cinematic cat.

A scientist for sure.
School is a curious kid’s cure.

Summer vacation came and went too quick.
I did a lot of editing & snacking; I got a lil’ thick.

It’s all good, child.
I’ve got a home gym inside of my domicile.

How are you doing this mornin?’
The sun in my hood – later on, will be scorchin.’

So I’m up early
exercising and feeling girly

before the sun comes up.
It’s Hump Day and I’m ISO fun.

Summer is still at hand, so whilst you can, please do pursue it.
I pray lunchtime finds me concluding my grind and Getting Back To It:

Letting my hair down if for no other reason
beyond life, love, liberty and the sunny LEO SEASON.

Leos ! ! ! ! ! ! We are back and good lordy!
Reality is long, so let’s all throw a party.

Are you in? Are you in?
Pink panties ain’t nothing but Pink Lemonade and Gin.

We can work on getting a few of those in.
Day 3 is about “we,” tho she feels like the weekend.

Let the fire season began. I’m happy to do it.
I want you to do it too; join me in Getting Back To It.

Getting Back To You and I… to me;  the two of us…
we” deserve a little more fun and a whole lot more love.

Come in a little closer and get this hug. Progress is being made.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, it’s Leo season. Oui!! Can you come out and play?

PS — Should temperatures be soaring today – stay inside as not to fry.
Go on and turn the television on and watch BIG LEO testify.

The Grind

Photo Flipbook Slideshow Maker

So tomorrow is THANKSGIVING DAY 
so thankful for life, I am yielding to pray.

I’m sitting here in Chandler, on this Wednesday Morning
thinking about the tone that we’re forecasting for future dawning .

I am an involved parent, who likes to be all-up-in-it.
I chauffeur to and from school, everyday: 80-minutes.

Conversation in the car has been thick
I’ve no “dancing around the obvious” tricks.

My kid is 17 and I heard the pain in her throat
when she said, “America! What’s wrong? I can’t wait to vote!”

She’s ON IT. She’s awake. I prayed for a graceful awakening.
Seems the generation before hers is down for some ‘earth shaking.’

They see the injustice and while they love Dr. Martin Luther King
They believe in being incessantly pushy to change a wrong thing.

I love them and I love you, America. I love the good intent of our system.
To act like an injustice is not going on is to be dismissive and consequent wishin’.

I pray no violence breaks out and no lives are lost in the face of this struggle.
I can’t believe you can’t feel my pain. Come on. Bring it in. I’m a big hugga’.

My kid is concerned about what she’s going to have to face tomorrow, beyond the high school doors.
I’m melancholy that she’s awake. Hurt that I can’t protect her, anymore, from the worlds unbalanced scores.

She’s a black kid, and I am a black mother.
I raised her to love all. We’re LIFE LOVERS.

I do what I’ve got to do and now, I’m fixed on my grind – talking to you.
I’ve got some positive routes that I’m going to have to hip her to.
Oooo!
This is a journey. I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do.
I’m praying for the situation. I’m praying for you.

I’m praying for me. I’ve got somethings to deal with.
It’s Hump Day baby, and I’m Getting Back To It!

I’m happy that I have this avenue to vent what doth pierce my heart,
I’m Qui
Happy to be linked to thee. I bid you peace, love and a positive spark!

Good Customer Service

Black-Friday

Black Friday is on its way,
and your bank balance includes holiday pay!

It’s on now!
Macy’s is about see you clown now!

I ain’t mad at you. Retail therapy can be so good it can make you holla,
so more power to ya sister and brother – just spend wisely, that dollar.

Just don’t be so quick to patronize
those who despise

your very brown existence
following you around the store ‘thief wishin.’

I’m not saying Macy’s is that kind of joint,
but your dollar has weight… and that is my point.

Have fun on Black Friday, consuming those sales.
If shopkeepers don’t make you feel welcomed, exit the store like, “Oh well.

Take your weighty dollars and bail.
I’m sure, up the way, there’s an all encompassing sale.

Pay attention to #Marketing & #CustomerService

THINK

No sooner than a black president is put into office
racism kicks up and hails #1 divisive topic.

Please keep in mind, Trayvon and Mike are two very recent reasons
why blacks feel like this is quite the nasty season.

Airing It Out

TOGETHERness Unity

WE can do better. FEEL for ME like I FEEL for YOU.

Come on. We have to talk about it sometimes. Don’t let those riling up bad times be the only ones able to rile. It’s time to stand together and say enough is enough. A shift in police power in a negative light may be your neighbors concern today, but by the looks of things, the lack of compassion and in some cases ‘the condoning of’ such behavior will indeed be your problem tomorrow. Then what? You’re going to want me to be outraged and march about it? Guess what? I probably will. Because I care about how you feel. Do you care for me as much?

I’m obviously worried about the state of my country;
I don’t care what others think, our current feel is foul and funky.

I’m worried about race relations and the message we’re sending to the youth.
I’m worried that we told them this was a “post racial era,” when we knew that wasn’t true.

I never bought into that anyway. If you’re a minority, everything but post racism rules the day,
I’m Qui
Not surprised about the Ferguson ruling. Historical nastiness continues to play.

No need for you to personally get hurt just to feel my pain.
Unite with me today and let’s tourniquet this bleeding vein.

PS… Judging by the lay of topics in view,
I’d have to say this is definitely a NEWS PERUSE.

You have been served. 🙂

Getting Back To It

output_pHj35A
Here we are alas – where we’ve always prayed,
Alive and well, again to see another day!

It’s Summertime here in ol’ Chandler,
the school break is a blur.

The children will be starting school in the month of July;
They just got out at the end of may — oh my how times flies.

Noticing the sun, my compass pointed due North,
I’ve dedicated this Summer to a film festival course.

There’s a Teen Film Organization that I may have mentioned before,
where the children congregate weekly to produce a film festival score.

I am the Program Director and there are decisions that need to be made.
7 have made the established crew, but who will make the film grade?

Each has been casted, some in lead and some supportive roles.
Now they’ve moved into ACTING COACHING – the way we polish up gold.

The Acting Coach sessions are a hit! Children receive so easy,
I pray this is an indication that our film production days will largely be breezy.

No additional drama, other than that, that is scripted in.
This isn’t Hollywood, but to not follow protocol would be a sin.

I’m shaping tomorrows #ReelMinds, and I’ve gotta say, it’s looking pretty good.
The program is proving to be reel sound, not to mention it’s FREE in the Chandler hood.

The program costs nothing and the kids learn the X-Y-Z’s
of how to produce a film by networking in a community.

It’s working and I’m thrilled – Mondays are the days that we meet
to talk about film production, while we socialize and eat.

Today will be no exception. We are going to have a grand time,
we’ll professionally mix and mingle, then “s’mores and bonfire” bind.

We’ll go over the VidBytes that the teen filmmakers have produced so far.
I’ll encourage individually and collectively, for each crew member is a star.

And then I’ll move on to marketing – it’s not easy pushing any project
from it’s pitch to final draft script – an idea that you haven’t shot yet.

However this is the nature of the business and exactly what I do best,
and so I’m off to gain visual exposure, building an audience for ‘what’s next.’

I’m utilizing the classifieds to broadcast auditions and ISO editors with a good grip
to help manifest the teen film project – in exchange for training and an internship.

Social media will play it part, I’ll be posting notices everywhere:
Facebook, Ebay, and Twitter –  in  filmmaking and love, all is fair.

Then I’m off to do a little traveling – the state of Texas and Kansas are calling.
I’ve been hiding in Arizona’s mountains for a while – I think I’m done with the stalling.

What is life if you don’t travel? It’s boring and lacking networking connections.
I’ll be lugging luggage through airports this week, because networking is my affection.

I’ll return back to Arizona soon enough and the film game will shift into high gear,
I’m Qui
and while the weekend was fun “Getting Back To It” is exactly why I’m here.

I really did miss you over the weekend.
There’s nothing like Getting Back To It amongst friends.

Attraction WORD CLUSTERStaying focused is KEY and Qui is my name.
It’s my challenge to blend the two as one in  the same.

Oh it’s a trick to pull off, but not a bad way to chart your plans,
So I look like ‘the secret,’ every time I stand.

Affirmations start my day. How are you starting yours?
Let me suggest a few quotes for you, to help improve your score:

1. The feeling of love is the highest frequency you can emit.
2. There is a truth deep down inside of you that has been waiting for you to discover it, and that Truth is this: you deserve all good things life has to offer.
3. You get to choose what you want, but you must get clear about what you want.
4. Asking is the first step in the Creative Process, so make it a habit to ask.
5. You must believe that you have received. You must know that what you want is your the moment you ask.
6. In the moment you ask, and believe and know you already have it in the unseen, the entire Universe shifts to bring it into the seen.
7. How it will happen, how the Universe will bring it to you, is not your concern or job. Allow the Universe to do it for you.

risk-taker

This week, move away from your comfort zone,
Once you do, you’ll find that you’re anything but alone.

Being safe is one way to play,
but being too cautious will cause you to miss the day.

You can’t go out to play without your socks and shoes,
if you contemplate too long, it’s the day that you lose.

You’ve got to think about it, and at some point you need to strike.
Prioritize: Getting Back to doing WHAT you really like.

You may have snagged that job out of necessity
but have the times yet changed to what you wanted them to be?

If they have not, and you are still waiting for your life to leave plane,
consider making “RISK TAKER” your new middle name.

Risk taking isn’t only for stock brokers, rich guys or kids in their 20’s.
Risks are for all and the universe offers us plenty.

You want to go for that opportunity? I say take the risk.
You used to be so fearless – we’re Getting Back To It!

Life is short, Live BIG. You deserve it and it’s all ABOUT YOU,
I’m Qui
I really did miss you, it’s glad to be back, doing what I do.
XOXO

  Spring Break is over now, and the fun is just beginning,
I’ve got a teen film troupe to groom & the crew members are winning.

We’ve got Ita Udo-Ema and Dedric Charlz on our filmmaking staff,
as well as a pretty cool teen film producer with experienced talent on tap.

Perceptual Teen Film Troupe is Arizona’s very own.
3Quis is the non-profit organization that birthed it in ‘the zone.’

I am the director and producer, I head up the party.
COMING SOON: our first film production, written and produced by the shorties.

The script is shaping up nicely, I see successful filmmakers emergin’
Pretty much like the Teen Sci-Fi Franchise winner DIVERGENT.

I love this gig of reel that I duly call a career.
If you love your gig too, put your hands up and cheer!

Spring Break is over, sure, but there’s so much more in store to do,
I’m Qui
Celebrating Spring in Chandler, until old Summer breaks through. Wooo!

What are you up to?

Cameron Diaz in Blk Swimsuit

Of course, your mate will CHEAT ON YOU

Duh! Surely you’ve heard what Cameron Diaz told Oprah, while maintaining her cool, blonde roots and athletic butt.

Life is good for the bachelorette. She’s a star in her work and her play, and when it comes to cheating, peep what Cameron had to say:

In Cameron Diaz’s latest comedy, “The Other Woman,” the 41-year-old plays a woman seeking revenge against her boyfriend after discovering he has a wife and a girlfriend. Tsk, tsk. In real life, Diaz says, infidelity unfortunately strikes us all. “Everybody has been cheated on, everyone will be cheated on,” she told Britain’s OK! magazine (via the New York Daily News). “I can’t fix that, I don’t know how, I don’t have any judgment on anybody, I don’t know how to fix the problem.”

I don’t know how to fix it either. Who can get a handle on that stem?
If anyone could have defied the facts, my bf — would have been him.

At least that’s what I thought when I was 18-years wise.
And that’s precisely when mom yanked the folly out of my eyes,

via conversation that she thought I’d benefit:
“If you can’t stand a cheat then don’t get into it.”

“IT” was marriage and my father cheated on her,
but it was so long ago, said mom, that the ‘common cut’ is now a blur.

The tendency to do so is animalistic, and we all are just that.
Of course your mate will cheat on you, though it’s not an absolute fact.

I had to really think about it, and that was before Carmen Diaz spoke,
I’m Qui
and she ain’t lying — unfortunately ‘the animal in us all,’ is no joke.

A sick day, in the future? The future is near.

Please do not get caught in the ER with no ACA.
I pray that they won’t turn you away,

and the bills that you are sure to incur later
will make you feel like a broke and busted hater.

You can not go – you’re still paying on that bruise.

Don’t be left on shore because you chose not to sign up,

The Grind

The-grind.gif

7-days til’ school starts across the Lone Star [state] mix.
A-Z started a few weeks back; to be exact, about 6.

I’m sitting here in Chandler, on this Monday Morning
where 5 am promptly ceased my sleepy-eyed yawning.

I am an involved parent, who likes to be all-up-in-it.
I chauffeur to and from school, everyday: 80-minutes.

There’s a school bus stop by my home to a much trendier place,
they call it a school, but it’s much too cool for my kids innocent space.

It’s the assigned school zone that I live in & my neighborhood is the best.
But the school itself, is built on wealth and parallels a popular school from the west.

Beverly Hills 90210. Do you remember that show?
The kids were rich, [the ratings were sick] and drama was good to go.

My kid attended last year – but she doesn’t want to go no ‘mo.
So I chauffeur the distance, for her academic growth.

I do what I’ve got to do and now I’m fixed on my grind – talking to you.
I’ve got some marketing research to do – to elevate a clients ‘web presence‘ view.

I’ve got some customer service calls to make.
I love my clients, but some need reminders to pay.
Yay!!!

I’m happy on this Monday Morning: I’ve got my life, health and strength.
I’m happy on this morning because I’m paid up on the rent.

I’m happy on this morning because my cup of jo’ is on point.
I’m happy on this morning because my space is a positive joint.

How are you this morning, and what good have you got planned for the week?
I’m Qui
Feeling high on “THEE” for dropping by to peep my feed.
Ooo Weee.
I’m sweet on thee.

Good Morning and Thank You very much.

How do you legitimize rape?

[NYmag.com Reports] Representative Todd Akin of Missouri, who also happens to be the state’s Republican senatorial nominee, has some important information for women everywhere:

Now, what is the difference between legitimate and illegitimate rape? Akin, who is somehow a member of the House’s science and technology committee, did not explain. (Perhaps the only way to know for sure is to wait and see if you end up with an illegitimate child.)

Akin added that he does not consider the failure of the uterus’s natural rape-defense mechanism to be a legitimate reason for an abortion …click here for more enlightenment and definitely sign the petition to remove this representative from congress:  http://dems.me/OsIfTN

No sooner than the week could officially begin,
Republic Representative Todd Akin had to weigh in.

And now you see why I keep bringing ‘My VAGINA’ up
‘She’ needs protecting from these right-winged nuts!

Airing It Out

My Flower. My Kitti Kat. My VAGINA!

Come on. We have to talk about it sometimes. Don’t let those pushing to take away womens rights be the only ones talking about it – even though they don’t like to call it by its name. “Vagina.” There! I said it and sometimes the word needs airing out.

I’m obviously worried about my own vagina too;
as it relates to politics and the birth control issue.

I’m worried about rape and hoarding unwanted batter.
I’m worried because Republicans said – the HOW’s don’t matter.

If you’re impregnated from a rape, be informed young lady,
The Republicans said NO RIDDANCE – you must have the baby,
