Image result for A quote about patience..

I have officially been away from my blog for 5 days now and I am back it……

I have a question for you all.

Is it better being single all your life and focus on your money? Or is it better to keep focusing on you while dating? I personally feel like that you can still work on your self and date people at the same time. You do not have to be serious just yet, but keep your eyes open. In the midst, you can find a lover. That is why you have to patiently wait and do not rush anything. When you rush things, they end quicker. Remember that! Now, that we have touched base on that topic….. Today, I discovered something.

We all have problems. Some of our problems might be big or small, it all depends on how you deal with them. We can’t always depend on others to be “Captain Save A Hoe” with our problems. They just might be going through the same thing as you and scared to ask for help….. It is okay to ask for help…Closed mouths don’t get fed. You can ask for it maybe once or twice but, not constantly. That one thing that I am talking about is money. People ask for money constantly but, you can really tell when someone actually needs it. Once you give it to them, they will truly appreciate it and say thank-you a bunch of times.

Sometimes a card full of words will do the trick. Your words have to be thoughtful and make them smile. 🙂 If it makes their day, then you have done your job. We have assignments that we have to complete and you will most definitely know when you have completed it. Some people are very close minded. Well, I should not say close minded but, I should say ONE TRACK MINDED…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me give you an example on what I mean by that.

When it comes to our jobs, we are scared to date because of the drama that might come with it. Sometimes it all depends on how you both deal with things. If you both are mature enough to date and work than their should be no problem. You should just complete your shift and go home.

You should always keep your personal business to yourself. Do not tell other co-workers what is going on in your relationship. Especially your sex life because it can most definitely get around the entire store. Just make sure you let everyone know that you two are dating and keep it at that. So, I currently am crushing on someone at my job. When I say she is fine, she is most definitely fineeeeeeeeeeee. Every time I see her I just want to hug her but, that is TMI lol… We have been talking lately and she has my attention. Every time she texts me, I am smiling. So, their is a spark some where in the universe. (I just love the word universe). Hahaha. It was meant for us to connect. All it took was for me to say Good Morning and we exchanged numbers. Which was an awesome thing that happened.

She needed a favor and I helped her. I feel like if I needed something than she would help me out. You never know. I think things like that will grab someone’s attention. It shows loyalty. Here is one thing that I have noticed about her though. When she told me that I can put my number in her phone, she just automatically gave me the password. I was like “Waittttttttttt whattttttttt? That most definitely shows TRUST….. I can tell that she is trustworthy by the way she talks.

She is a little older but, not that much older. So, she knows more and that attracts me. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy. Well, if things get intimate I will let you all know my thoughts on it.

My advice for you all is to try new things and let the Universe do its job. You never know who you will be connected to. Trust me, I am most definitely learning. Talk to God or whom ever and watch what happens. Trust yourself. Speak it into existence and watch it manifest. Maybe I might do vlogs with the both of us if it gets that far. I always wanted to do that like; a Domo and Chrissy type of thing but, different. By the way, Domo and Chrissy are so cute. I just love them. Well, my day has been made and hopefully yours will too. I have to get to work now. Whoever you are talking to, please spark their day if they are going through something. Trust me, it works. I am still single though blahhh lol but, time will tell. Once that love sparks somewhere, vlogs will be coming if they are up for it or pictures. Yall have a great day now. (In my country voice)….

Goodmorning beautiful people. 

   Today, I wanted to talk about the city of Chicago and this can tie into other cities as well. I want to particularily touch on a subject which will be called “CTA HOMELESS SHELTER”….. 

   I will explain to you about that in a moment. I used to bounce from house to house so I kind of understand these people pain. I personally understand the bed bug situation. I understand not having something to eat. I understand what its like to just be in “Survival Mode”….. I never had to deal with sleeping on a train though and keeping my stuff on me all at once. Yes, I have a story but, this is not about me. 

   The City of Chicago spoils us with great transportation. We can get to any where as long as we know where we are going. The CTA takes us every where from Point A, Point B, Point C and Point D…. Their is no way you should need a ride from anyone unless, you are really struggling to get 4.50 to get you some where. Plenty of us ride the train to work, school, interviews, meetings and etc…. Most of us have to ride the train every day all day because we are always On The Go. Am I right or wrong? Inside the train stations, their are some good and bad things that we see. Some things are not even pleasent to look at nor smell either. This is coming from someone who lived in Chicago and the Suburbs. When I was in the suburbs, I always wanted to visit downtown and so I did. When you ride the train, you might hear singing while passing by different stops. Mainly near Jackson, State and you all should know the rest of them. Some people pay 10 dollars to get a permit to perform in the stations. Which to me is an excellent idea. 😁 You can make a lot of money that way if you have great talent. Don’t get me wrong I have seen AMAZING TALENT. It is mainly singers and dancers though. I wish I saw more rappers who have a meaning behind their music or more poets to….


Looks like they are singing right. 👆👆👆⬆⬆⬆

On the other hand, you might see homeless people. Sometimes they may be laying on the carts that we have to sit on. Sometimes they may even stink up the whole cart and we all have to move to another cart. I’ve done it before. This is a serious issue that we need to find a solution to. Do you agree with me? 

We can take all the pictures we can but, will that do anything? It won’t, it will just bring all the attention on them. 

The Mayor needs to do something about this before it gets worse. If he doesn’t, the CTA Train Stations will start turning into a shelter, because that is the only place that they feel is safe. In most cases, it is not always safe because their are some mean people on the train. Remember: HURT PEOPLE HURT PEOPLE. 

I saw some of these images on facebook and it inspired to write this blog post. I been getting plenty of inspiration lately. I feel like their should be more homeless shelters and resources for people who are constantly finding their way back on the train. 

Does CTA really clean the trains after each ride? I personally think not. Why do they have workers if the carts on the train are still dirty and have a smell to them? Just saying. 

I know these pictures can be a bit disturbing but, I see it in real life. Some of the homeless people we see are sometimes on crack or drunk as well. I seen it with my own two eyes. Someone was sniffing crack on the red line and it was late at night. You know what he told me? He told me to mind my business. But how can, I if you are doing this in public? I have a concern with that because kids ride the train by their selves and they have to see what I see. They have to see these things early in the morning before school. BUMMER!! I understand that every one story is different. Your story can be fixed if you start fixing up your self with the proper tools. I feel like it should not get this bad. We need someone to really care for our city and do something about this ASAP before it turns into something big. 

I know I am not the only one who sees this issue. I actually have to get on the train when I am done typing this. My thumb hurts from typing all of this lol. Well, I am off to school. Befofe I go, I want say HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY. Make sure you treat self and save money as well. You might need it for a rainy day. Love you all. Okay, carry on about your day now.

**Thoughts Of Taris** #46

Hey all,

   So today, I wanted to talk about how some things are common  sense. Common Sense is not so common nowadays. As I sit back and observe something’s, I realize that we ask dumb questions that we can just simply answer our selves.

   Our answers could possibly be right in our face. I am not saying that I know more than anyone else but, with something’s I do. I wish people would think about the questions that they ask before they ask. SIMPLE RIGHT? Even though in school we were simply taught that “No Question Is A Dumb Question.” Our teachers said that because someone else might have the same exact question. FALSE….  

   For example, say if you are in the library and you are getting ready to print something. Someone is in front of you, he or she does not know how to press “DONE” on the screen. I had to show her the word “Done” was on the top right corner of the screen. The word was in big letters and was in the color red. I know she is not blind because she did everything else before her things  got printed. Here comes that main saying, “Reading Is Fundamental. “….. Rings a bell?

   If you just simply read what is right in front you, life would be so much easier. I was not going to post about this today but, I got inspired. I am in the library and this happened to me a couple seconds ago. When I am at my job, customers do this to me all the time. They simply can not read signs that are above the aisles. They ask “Where is your bread?” There is a section that is full of bread, I mean come on now, everyone knows that. I get frustrated with this and it kind of makes me feel like a NERD in a way. This is why people should read more books and eat more carrots. Carrots help improve our eye site.

At  first, I stopped eating carrots because I went crazy with all the sugary stuff. I know you are probably like yeah I can most definitely relate to that. Sometimes it depends on what type of books you read as well. If you read books that have bigger words, more than likely your vocabulary will expand. I am trying to do that myself. I catch myself reading signs more often. On my library card it says. Read, Learn, Discover. Is that at least helpful?

Image result for Books

   Uhmmmm, maybe some people have brain farts. Or they simply are thinking about too many things at once. Some people just might need your help when they ask questions. Don’t get me wrong their is nothing wrong with asking questions. Questions are fun and you get all the facts. Even as a journalist you have to ask plenty of questions. I do believe that your questions can’t be vague. Am I Right? Your questions have to make the other person think. You have to ask the Who?, What, When, Where, Why, and How? The lady did use a How question which was again a question she could of answered her self. As I said before, my major is journalism and some things just irks my nerves. If you stay in school, you will realize some of the things that I am realizing.  Do not give them the stink eye when they ask the question. Be kind and do not be sarcastic. I deal with this all the time. I am currently a Sophomore in college. Yayyyyy me. Take a peek at what I learning.

What are some things that irks your nerves?

Welp, these are my thoughts. Carry on.

**Thoughts Of Taris** #45….

Hey all, 

So, today I am going to talk about the number one issue which is the “Bestfriend Syndrom”….. We all have that one bestfriend who like to take over everything. Depending on if your bestfriend is a female or a male. They kind of take the role of being a father or mother figure, if you get what I mean. 

It is okay to have a bestfriend but, in some cases you got to let them go for a while. I don’t mean just drop them completely but, take a break. Bestfriends can sometimes form the definition of “clingy”… Bestfriends are attached to you like glue. They want to hang around twenty four seven. They want to talk on the phone about anything mainly gossiping. They want to know everything about you. That is perfectly fine but, I feel that is what you do in the beginning stages of that friendship. 

A best friend is cool to have when you have no one to talk to and things in that nature. But, this is where the problem comes in at. 

“The Best Friend/Relationship Syndrom”…..

When you get in a relationship, your bestfriend tends to get jealous. This is not the case all the time but, sometimes. They are getting jealous because you are getting more “play” than them. You might be enjoying your life with someone else other than them. Then they start to call you fake or phony. Here is that one line where they say “I need a new bestfriend, my old bestfriend is not acting like one”…. They want so much of your attention it is like they actually want to be with you. Get it???

A bestfriend wants to know how he or she is treating you. They want to know about you all’s sex life. Which I personally feel is private. What if you and your bestfriend get into it, and they tell everything. Get it??? They want to know what type of places you all go to for dates. They want to know every detail about that relationship. But, the person you are dating is kind of already like your bestfriend. Okay, you understand now right? 

When your bestfriend finally meets the person you are dating. Things get rocky because they question them like the FBI. 😂😂Mind you, I don’t have a bestfriend. I just sit back and observe certain things. So, if you have a bestfriend and they kind of act like this. You might want to keep watching the signs. When you are paying more attention to the person you are dating. Your so called “bestfriend” might end up turning on you. But, then again some of us really do have a good bestfriend who sticks around no matter if we are dating someone or not. 

I don’t have a bestfriend sadly. 😢😥 I know you all are probably like what really? Yeah it is true. I do not have a bestfriend because I do not trust others. I rather be alone than to be done wrong. 👌💁

Sometimes I do wish for a bestfriend but, I kind of like my me time and don’t have to deal with all the clinginess. 😂😂  I will be honest, I can get a little clingy to but, that is okay. 

If you have a bestfriend just make sure you both are on the same page. Make sure you make each other feel comfortable and give each other space like a true bestfriend would. Your bestfriend still loves you even if they do get into a relationship. With everything that comes with change, we have to learn to adapt to it in most cases. 

Alright Guys. 
That is all my thoughts for tonight.

Hey all, 

Love is a word. I want to express you all my perception of what love is. I want to express how I express my love for someone else. I technically have different ways of showing per se. I might throw hints at you and I might even give you a little smile. It all depends on how you make me feel. 

Here is one thing though. If I don’t receive it back than I might attend to get angry and insecure. It all depends on the type of love you give to me. Or shall I say “show”?  Some one asked me today, was I passive aggressive? This question is what brings me to this particular blog post. I usually don’t post twice a day.  I didn’t know what that meant so, now I am blogging about it. I kept my comments to myself and now I am looking it up. Has me thinking about certain things. Things like; past relationships, friendships and so on. Was I being passive aggressive? In a sense, I probably was but, then again who knows?  I simply show love by giving. I give constantly and constantly to make the other person happy. Instead of taking away from them. The only thing I want to receive is the heart, the mind, the soul and sometimes the body. 😂😂😂

When others come onto to me 👀, I can’t really tell. They have to literally show me that they are coming on to me. Unless, I will never know. Seriously!!! 😏 I’ll just think that you are creating small talk. I now feel like love is kind of unpredictable now and days. You can’t predict who is going to show you love in a way that you been talking to the universe about. I mean the universe connects two people for a reason. We never know that reason.  

The universe brings you two together in a weird place. A place that you would never ever think of. Right now, I am just going with the flow of things. I’ve been meditating on my body lately. So, who ever receives it, receives it while being cleansed. You get me? Sometimes going back to exes is probably not a proper way of cleansing my body. You get me now right? When I look at you, I am simply studying while also studying myself. With that being said, studying who we both are as human beings and how I can find a way to connect with you. I know, deep right? Some people think I be mean mugging them or I have a starring problem but, not really.😂😂😂💀 That is why I created Thoughts Of Taris to show others my perspective of why I do things. 

Some people say that I am interesting when they first have a conversation with me. But then, things change. I might be interesting to them but, they don’t keep my interest. It is certain things that you have to do in order to keep my interest. I will not name them because of the simple fact that some body might do them because they read this. 

That is not cool…..by the way….. 👊

Love is an excellent feeling if you show as much effort as the other person. You get me now right? Love can also be a disaster if you are too controlling in a sence. Love can become disastrous in many different ways. You have to accept the other person for who they are. You get me? I am talking to you but, I don’t think you are hearing me. 👂 Sometimes we just got to be careful of who open up to. I mean I am like an open book. 📖

You just have to stay long enough and open me up. My book is full of surprises. I mean I don’t bite. Yes, I love woman. I love boobs. I love buts. I love all the female body parts. Ask me questions? When you meet me, just get to know me. 💭👭 I have certain beliefs that others don’t know about. This is what communication is here for. I see how some people don’t get close to me because I sit in an area that does not involve a “group setting”.. It all depends on what group setting is in the room at the moment. It takes me a while to get comfortable with certain people. I am a very interesting person, try me. But, don’t come for me if you are not ready to handle my emotions. I am a emotional person as well. Do you think I am passive aggressive by reading this post? What you think? It is only your opinion so, doesn’t hurt me at all. OPEN BOOK, remember? Get to know me. Do you want me to start creating videos of my thoughts. What is your thoughts tonight? 👂👂

Hey all, 

I know that I have been gone from blogging for a while. I want to appreciate you all for reading and commenting. I have been keeping myself away from commenting on blogging threads and going back into the “norm”……blahhhhh. Life is hitting me on the nail right now. I have not been focusing on my poetry. I have not been putting in the work that I should be putting in. I been writing half ass poems on receipt paper at work. I just feel like I am putting my job before anything else. Even though my job has been bringing me money, I don’t feel happy. Sometimes I wonder if others sees my unhappiness through the “fake happiness”. You get me? 

I guess some people feel that I try to do so many things at once. “FAMILY MEMBERS”… Then, I miss out on “important things” and get sidetracked. Example, school and bus fare. I sometimes feel like everything I basically do is important. No matter what it is. I feel like I put up this role. This role of being happy of where I am at in life just to get through the day. It is good to be positive about life but, not to front in front off others who see right through you. Some people come to me and be like; oh you are always happy. Why are you down today? You are always giggling and being silly but, what is wrong? Then they think I all of a sudden have problems when I don’t. I am just being a human being.  I am being a human being like everyone else. I have emotions that hit me daily and anger that is in me constantly. I guess that is apart of my gemini moodswings or what not. Or I guess that is “Taris” coming out which is my normal self, my other side is God’s Poetic Child. She shows out mainly all the time. You know like she is the good person and Taris is basically the bad person. I would not necessarily say the bad person. You know what I mean? 

 Keke Palmer explains those things in her book. How different artists has multiple personalities. When she said that I kind of thought that she was a gemini but, it is just an artist thing. She turns out to be a virgo. I mean that’s cool. 

Well, I been reading this book. A book by someone who inspires me so much. Her attitude, her hustle, her style, her confidence, etc…..

The book is called. I Don’t Belong To You by Keke Palmer. 

I am still in the process of reading it. I can relate to her emotionally and I do feel like I am connecting to her in the artist world. I mean her goals are different from mine but, she is an artist like me. When she signed my book last week. I felt something. I felt something deep. I don’t know what it was but, I felt it. I followed her (not in a stalkerish way) but, I followed her through her movies she was in. I listen to her music. I watched her Tv shows and everything. It is like you know she came from Harvey, IL. She acts so much like us it is crazy. When I say “Us”, I mean my generation in a whole. 

She just reminds me of some people that I see at work sometimes or outside of work. I been thinking some things as I continue to read this book. By the way, I give this book 5 stars.  Usually, I pick up a book and start reading and don’t finish. This book has me glued all the way in. 

I am taking my time reading this. She talks about a lot of important things that I feel I need to know as an artist. She seem like cool people’s. Now, since I been reading this book. I tend to think about my gifts and what have I done so far with them. I have done a little but, not to much. And Keke Palmer has stated on facebook one time ” I rather do to much than to little.” I am like this girl got to have everything figured out by now. I have plenty of wants but, not a lot of do’s. You get me? I feel like I need to focus more on what I want so I can get what I need. I know for sure my gifts will make room for me and I have been talking to God lately or the universe. I feel like he hears me but, ehhhhh not often. I want to reach the young people just like Keke Palmer just in a different way. With my poetry. It is hard because I keep focusing on every body else’s blessings and blocking mine. No one knows how depressing this is. People say they will help me but, then they don’t help me. I can name a few but, I won’t be that bold. I am holding some of you other artists accountable for saying that to me. It just puts me back in square one. I NEED HELP. I NEED A MANAGER.  I have been doing some self -reflecting. I need to do more. Being in school sometimes helps with that. I wish life was easy and people understood me. I feel like Keke sometimes. People won’t get to know Taris but, they get to know God’s Poetic Child and make assumptions about Taris from what she posts on facebook. You get me? So, it is like what if I did that to other artists on the poetry scence. It would make me look like an ass hole just like it makes them look like one. I will not name names. Well, I guess I have to become more organized with my wants and so, I can finally complete my do’s. Thanks to an awesome inspiration of mine, she made me realize that. I suggest any artist who is trying to make it. You got to pick up this book and read it sometime. These are my thoughts. Carry on peeps. !! Peace out!! 😘❤✌👌💤

Topic: My thoughts on Dionysus Deville

Hey everyone, 

   I wanted to do something a little different today. I have a couple of features coming up. The first person I will be talking about is Charles a.k.a Dionysus Deville. He is a great friend of mine well, more like a big brother in my eyes. 

In the poetry world, he is known as Dionysus Deville. In the real world, he is known as Charles and he is 28 years old. Dionysus is known as the party guy. Turn up!!! He is the one who likes to drink and be in the spotlight. We all love to be in the spotlight, right? He more so has the confident side, who isn’t afraid to express himself. Dionysus pushes the boundaries within himself. 

Meet Dionysus Deville. 

Charles is more core with his personality. When Charles is off stage and around friends, he is more laid back and a bit nerdy. HAHA! Otherwise, he is down to earth. Charles and Dionysus are nothing alike (at all)… Dionysus was created more for the stage. Charles is more so the one who focuses on reality. We all have two different sides dealing with our personality. Dionysus is known as a Spoken Word artist. He has performed at plenty of different open mics. He has also written several stories and published books as well. He has two poems that were published in magazines. Dionysus has been known to host his own open mics. His open mics are very fun and with different types of people. He has hosted different events on different occassions as well. 

Everyone meet Charles….

Dionysus has been featured in different shows and won a talent contest. He has won the talent contest with a SpokenWord piece. The people that he has encountered around him, has been a inspiration. His source of inspiration actually comes from everyone. Which leads us to his first book, “Rise Of The King”…. He has another book coming out which is called “Room 917″… Sounds interesting, right?? 

“Rise Of The King” was published in 2014. Dionysus plans on expanding his radio show “StreetDreamers Radio,” starting a brand new open mic, and producing a play. Can you say “WOW!!!”. Looks like Charles and Dionysus has a lot going for their selves. HAHA!! See what. I did their? Check him out sometimes. 


“Be who you are, even when others don’t want you to be” -Dionysus…

“Don’t let failure fail you, allow it to grow you.” -Dionysus
