OMG..... [26 Nov 2007|01:59am]
[ mood | shocked ]



I can't believe I can still access this old journal. 


I am Miria, and Miria is me.

WHOA.... [24 Nov 2006|08:23am]
[ mood | surprised ]

I haven't touched this thing since July.


I've been so busy, I forgot I even had this. 

I updated everything else so much to the point where this is obviously becoming obsolete. 

I want to shut this down, but I realized I've written some good stuff in thing....some good poems that I don't want gone forever. 

Maybe this will be used as an archive. 

Maybe it's time to say goodbye.....

Long overdue. [20 Jul 2006|12:49am]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

I know.  It's been forever, right? 

Well since the last update, my life has changed for the better.  I have grown so much as a person this summer.  I have grown closer to my faith, and I've reconnected in my relationship with God.   HE is my strength, my joy, and my salvation.   Since the last update, I've made some positive decisions in my life.  First off, I'm taking a semester break away from JSU to work full-time.  I'm still taking a class though, but it'll be an online class from Southern Union.  So since I won't be at JSU this fall, that means no Marching Southerners for me.  Which is okay.  At first I was sad about not marching, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that God has a purpose for me of being here at home.   Secondly,  as of this past Tuesday July 18th, I've been hired for a new job!  I'm going to be working at Intercall as a Full-Time Operator.  I have orientation next Thursday, and my first official day of work is July 31st.  I'm so happy that I have a job now.  The job hunting took forever, but I also had to get myself and my life situated before I fully focused on the job search.  

I'm gonna try to update this thing as much as I can.  I really don't know how many of you still read this.  I've thought about many times of shutting this down, but I don't really know.  I hope that there are still people reading this thing.  Let me know if you are, and if you really want to catch up on my life, you can either check out my xanga or my myspace page.   I update the myspace page more though.  
Xanga: http://www.xanga.com/TheRealAuntJemima 
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/therealauntjemima 
Or if you have Facebook, look me up under Jermiria Darden.  I check on that as often too. 

That is all.

A lot of things have gone on in my life the last month or so. 

Things are changing.

I am changing..... for the better

School... was tough this past semester.  

I'm enjoying the summer break... or will it be just a summer break?.. 

Decisions have to be made..... soon

I love..... home, but it's not home anymore. 

I hope to make a permanent move to my real home soon.... 

This fall..... 

..............changes will take place. 

Things will be different

I embrace change. 

I'm ready for the new turning point of my life...

Buh. [13 Apr 2006|05:44am]
[ mood | cranky ]

It's the nearing the end of another school year, and quite frankly, I'm sick of people. Well not all people.. :P I'm sick of the overdramatized bullshit. I'm sick of people not owning up to what they do. I'm sick of people start drama that shouldn't even be started in the first place. I'm SO sick of STUPID people. I just want to knock some sense into all of the stupid people I encounter on a daily basis. *sighs*

As of Monday April 10th, I got sick of being a welcome mat to a certain "friend". So if he doesn't like it, he can piss off.

I'm ready to just pack everything and go home for the summer. So that I can have a long break from the ville and make money off of two jobs. That's right folks. Two jobs. I plan on working my ass off. (or I hope...*fingers crossed*)

That is all.

When will the madness be over? [30 Mar 2006|08:20pm]
[ mood | calm ]

Well, I thought I was ready for the madness that is school, but I was wrong.  My mind is still on Spring Break mode. Sad thing, eh?  Well, Monday I decided to look super cute, and I sported a new outfit.  Monday afternoon was the 2nd round of the One-Act auditions.  To be perfectly honest, I wasn't too fond of this rounds' plays.  No offense, but some of them didn't appeal to me.  I was kind of getting the vibe that I was.... well.. gonna be typecasted, and I had the distinct impression that I wasn't gonna get casted.  I'm never wrong about these suspicions, and 99.9% percent of the time, my gut feeling is always correct.  So yeah... hate to say I told myself so. I was right.  I didn't get casted, and you know what?  I don't care.  I could be petty and mad about it, but I'm not. I'm so much better than that.  However (comma), next year when I will be several pounds lighter, maybe.... just MAYBE my skills will be taken seriously.  Heh, my talent is going to do the talking. Maybe this time around, they'll have people that will actually memorize their lines.  Ooops, did I say that?  Sorry.... Nope, I'm not really sorry.  Mmkay, holla.  ANYWAYS, things do happen for a reason.  So maybe it's a sign from God that I need to concentrate on what's ahead.  Meaning, I need to haul booty for the finals. Yeah, I'm not doing so great in a few of my classes.  This semester has been killing me....mentally and emotionally.  Many times have I just wanted to throw in the towel, and give up on everything.  Screw it all.... but, I'm far too close to reaching my destination, and I won't let any obstacle hinder my way into finishing up what I need to do.  By whatever means necessary, I will work hard to make sure that I pass my classes.

Some of my friends have been telling me about how happier I've been this week, and I have.  Spring Break really gave me a chance to clear my head and de-stress myself from everything that's been going on this semester.  I am a happier person now.  I've made more time for my friends because at the beginning of this semester, I barely socialized or saw anyone because I was dead set on getting everything done. It made me cold, distant, and depressed.  I didn't like that side of me.  Now that things are winding down, I feel like the weight is slowly lifting off of my shoulders. Though, I will say this.  Lately, it feels that a few of my friends are letting me down.  Granted the last month has been nothing but an emotional rollercoaster, and I felt like a few of my friends left me in the dust when I needed them the most.  (P.S.: if you know you've been supportive of me in the last month, I'm not talking about you. )  Don't get me wrong, I know the busy schedules that me and my friends have, but seriously, if I can take time out of my busy schedule to give them support for something they're doing, then that should be reciprocated, right? All I know is I feel like my friendship to a few people is being taken for granted, and I personally don't appreciate it. I am not your wash rag to just be used up for whenever and then dumped away.  I'm the WRONG person for that. I'm so much better than that. Mmkay? Thanks.

I'm done. 

P.S.: Not quite.  I must mention of how dinner at Red Lobster on Monday night was the DEAL.  It was Ashley Smith's birthday dinner, and Chenita and I got a chance to go.  It was fun times. 

NOW, I'm done.


Preesh HOLLA!

Spring Break [22 Mar 2006|07:57pm]
[ mood | content ]

Well this week is Spring Break for me. I've caught up on so much sleep. It's great! I'm thinking about going to the AU sometime on tomorrow to visit some old friends. Not too sure yet. I miss my JSU friends already, but this break has been great for me. It's amazing that after this semester, I have three more to go. I'm excited! Hope you all's lives are going well. Let me know how you all are!

Well guys, another day. Another update.

This week has been so draining. I feel like a piece of my heart is just gone. One of my friends passed away on Tuesday, and I have been in utter disbelief ever since. It's times like this where everything is just put into perspective.

R.I.P Morris Claude "Tad" Blumenthal IV - We miss you and love you man! Thank you for your friendly nature and wonderful presence. I will never ever forget you. See you again someday in the sky...

We meet again... [25 Feb 2006|04:15am]
[ mood | content ]

So I know I've promised to TRY and keep this up. Hence the keyword 'try'. Though, I have been way busy with other things that I haven't had the chance to update this thing. So it's been a month since the last entry. Things have been going on. First off, I'm now 23 years old. Yes, I had a birthday last Friday. It was probably the best birthday I've had in a long time. I got to spend it with my wonderful parents. :) The week before, one of my best friends and I had a joint birthday party. She turned 21 this year. The party was the best of the three we've had together. Drama free and very chill. Since the last entry, I've dropped one of my class. I'm now down to 14 hours. Things are still hectic even though I've dropped this last class. I'm also in a one act series play that will be in performance on Monday March 13th at 4 p.m. at 338 Stone Center for all you JSUers. Come see me! Admission will be $1! As far as life goes, life has been pretty good lately. I've had my ups and downs in the last month, but I've learned from the downs, and I'm a far better person for that. I'm loving my life right now, and the people in my life. Things are in the good.

Until next time...

I am Miria, and Miria is me.

A blissful breeze blowing in the quietude of the atmosphere...
Birds chirping pleasant melodies along the evergrowing tree branches...
A calm, slow-moving wave slightly crashing against the grainy sand barely caressing my feet..
I find serenity in YOUR creation.

The sound of turbulent rain during a cloud-filled nighttime...
The luminescent rays of sunshine beaming down on the spacious plains of grass green and variations of scenery...
Purple mountains majesty ascending in perfect connection with the blessed, bright glory of the heavens above...
I find serenity in YOUR creation.

Whenever I need a sense of peace, I find serenity in your creation.
When the world is full of chaotic, dramatic discord, I find serenity in your creation.
Just when I think that everyone has turned their backs on me, I find serenity in your creation.

I find serenity in YOU.... In YOUR comfort.
Because with YOU, I will never be alone.
You will always be there for me...

First poem of 2006 [06 Jan 2006|02:48am]
I may not be the skinny girl, but I'm just as beautiful, right?
I may not be the ONE, but I'm great just the way I am, right?
I may not be perfect, but do you really know who is?
I may not be THE girl of your dreams, but will you still be my friend?
I may not be the one you want, but am I the one you NEED?
I may have my flaws, but does that make you hate me?
I like me the way I am for now, but do YOU like me?
I know I've made mistakes, but will you just LOVE me?
I have learned to be happy and smile, but I want to smile JUST like you.
I've learned to be satisfied, but I want to be satisfied JUST like you.
I've learned to look at life positively, but I want to do that JUST like you.
I want to walk to the beat of my own drum, but I want to do that JUST like you.
I may be wrong to say what I feel, but I feel like you complete me.
I feel like you're the true gentleman I've been looking for.
It's true that your soulmate is the one that you least expect, but I never knew HE could be YOU.
Should I be the woman of YOUR dreams? or Will you be the man in MINE?
Be the subject of MY prose, and I'll be the melody to YOUR song.
Be the sunshine of MY life, and I'll be the color to YOUR world.
Bring the joy of YOUR smile to me, and I'll bring the care and love of MY heart to you.
Every night, I will continue to pray to have a man like YOU in my life.
Until then, I want to get to know you even more...
Because I'm intrigued by you...
Hope I am the same way...

I'm SO ready to go back to Jacksonville.

Being at home has driven me so nuts in more ways than one. Every time I come back home, it makes me realize how less I miss it. I've made Jacksonville my home so much that I hardly ever want to come to Lanett except to see my family which for the last few years (and the last few days) hasn't been that pleasant.

Anyways, Christmas was great. I got everything I needed and more. Can't complain about that.

January 2nd needs to be here quickly. That is when I'll be back in the ville. Woohoo!

Until next time...

Sorry...(LAST ENTRY) [30 Oct 2005|09:41pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

I'm sorry for the lack of updates this last month or so. I just haven't felt the need to update this journal. School and Southerners have soaked me in. Plus, now I have a xanga, myspace, and a facebook to maintain too. So I'm really contemplating on shutting this down entirely. Although this has been my mode of expressing myself for the last three years and also the first mode, I feel like I've grown apart from this thing. So this will be my last entry. I will keep this entry up for about two weeks, and then I will completely shut it down for good. It was fun while it lasted. Take care everyone. My contact info will be posted below this entry.

UPDATE [20 Sep 2005|03:28pm]
[ mood | tired ]

So JSU finally catches up with the rest of the world and gets Facebook. Bout damn time. HOWEVER, it is just me, or is this registration confirmation deal a hassle? I registered yesterday, and I guess I was suppose to get a confirmation email as soon as I registered... Welp, I haven't gotten it yet.. and it's been since YESTERDAY that I registered. I just wanna get started.... Shame on you facebook. Shame on you. *shakes finger*

In other news, Southerners is still rockin' the hizzus. Saturday's performance at UAB was nothing short of amazing. The crowd was LOVING it! It was by far one of the greatest moments since my rookie year in 2003. So we have TWO exhibitions to perform at this Saturday night. We have the Homewood Exhibition in Birmingham and the Mid-South Exhibition in Gadsden. Usually at Mid-South, we do TWO run-throughs of our show. So in actuality, we have THREE performances this weekend. Can't we say TIRED? I'm scared. I really don't know if I'll be able to pull it off. This year's show is hella intense, and now that we finally got ALL of the show on the field, I'm scared that I'll lose the stamina that I've been trying to build up since band camp.

In academic news, I made an A- on my first Technical Writing assignment. Rock on! It's a wonderful start to the semester as far as grades. I have a Spanish Quiz tomorrow, an Advanced Grammar quiz on Thursday, and a Resume/Letter of Application due for Technical Writing on Friday. So it's a busy week as far as school. It's also a tiring week. I have a feeling that I won't be sleeping much this week. Gah...

So... I guess that is all. Oh wait, one more thing. I HATE STUPID PEOPLE. I've encountered quite a bit of that breed this week. Another thing, I miss hanging out with my friends. I don't get to see them anymore. :( It's pretty sad, but it's understandable because we're all so busy. A gathering needs to commence and SOON!

Gotta jet!

Preesh HOLLA!

I am Miria, and Miria is me.
