This is how I know I've been broke! Last week, I had to call my car financing company and tell them that I got laid off so I could get a deferred payment plan. I've been so broke that if somebody told me that I could make love to Idris Elba (thank you jesus) for $10, I would have to take out a payday loan! I've been so broke, that I've considered working food service (ill)... shit! I've been so broke, I've considered working whore service! I've been so broke, I had to ask my parents for money (yuck)! I've been so broke, I am now a gold member at www.cashnetusa.com which is one of the biggest legal loan sharking institutes in America! (pay day loans are addictive. don't effin juge me!)....
But again, I will not complain, because alas, if penis wasn't free, I probably would be bankrupt because I've been getting an over abundance of that here lately. mmmm I have a lot to be thankful for ;-)

Also, as the holiday season approaches, I'm thinking about taking a vacation to Jersey to hang with the Jersey blogger crew... It's going to be hot I think.. I hope Fuzz is going to be cooking.
Ok so you know those items of clothing that you wear that make you feel a lil thug? Well for me it's a fitted hat. I've only had 3 in my whole life but I always lose them, but I just found one so I did a little photo shoot! On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the lowest, 10 being the highest, how trade do I look?

Now some of you may be wondering where I'm getting all the money to buy all this damn McDonalds, and it's because gas went down to $2.53 in my neighborhood! (GLORY TO GOD!).. I don't think you would even believe the line that was coming out of the gas station when I went to fill up. Now some of you may have attended the Blogger Reunion may have remembered my baby Cobalt. Well that bitch cost 54.00 to fill up 3 weeks ago, and yesterday it cost $41.00. I wanted to dance in the streets!
In other news, I'm really anticipating Beyonce's new album that is set to drop on November 18. have you heard her new singles?? I'm going to really like this.
Work is going really well too, September 27th was my year anniversary and promotion is right around the corner!
My apartment lease is up in February, and it's hard to believe that almost a year ago, I made one of the biggest decisions of my young life to move out of my parents' house. What a fulfilling time it has been. Charting my own path hasn't been the easiest, but it has been awesome nonetheless. Now that my lease is almost up, I'm contemplating whether or not I want to move out of here and go elsewhere, or if I just want to stay here for another year. I have been apartment shopping. I looked at this really beautiful loft apartment downtown on Eutaw and Centre Street called Cheasapeake Commons (Warren, do you know where I'm talking about?) and I'm sold on it already. If I do move, that will probably be the one that I choose. The only thing is, am I really prepared to pay $1000 in rent to the $850 I pay now?? hmmm... we'll see...
I guess the only thing left to discuss is my relational life.. aaah being in love is great. Me and Marcus are sailing smooth and things couldn't be greater. His birthday is coming up soon and I want to throw him a surprise birthday party... anyone have any ideas??

I know I've talked to a few of you on my break.. a whole lot fewer than I would've liked to, but i digress... but yes I've talked to a few of you and I hope all is well with rest of you! Hopefully, the gas prices haven't worn you out too bad!
I know you whores are going to cuss me out because while I was on my break, I kept thinking about this huge re-introduction to my blog, and it was gonna be this whole big thing, and there was going to be a parade with floats, and Beyonce and the Clark Sisters were gonna sing the National Anthem, and I was going to be clad in Michael Kors and Gucci, and my hair would be long flowing down my back, and I would have an assistant named Emily, but alas, I couldn't think to do anything else but be me. Soooo here I am again!
Now I know I said I've been busy, so let me tell you what's been going on in Jared-Ville. I think last time I blogged, I said that I was thinking about going on tour singing backup with Zack Williams, but that was a 3 month tour that would've required me to take off of work or quit all together, plus they would've been paying me the same as I would've been making at work, and then my job is paying for me to go to school, so Zack had to kick rocks.
On top of that, I finished makeup school and now I am licensed! BUSY BUSY BUSY!
And then to top it all off, I've been caught up a tad bit with a man tee hee! Those who are avid readers of my blog may remember Leroy from when I was in high school. Yeah... I'm back with him and I love him : o )
Oh by the way, am I the only one that wants to see this High School Musical 3 movie???
But anyway, this season of my life is full of satisfaction, love, happiness, control, and more, so thank you for taking this ride with me!
I lubb you!

But anwyays, let's get started. Since July, I've been busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. Work is still simply work, but I started a special project that has required me to do a lot of travelling around the U.S. I've been to Rochester, L.A., and Tampa since I last posted, aaando I even got a raise (hallelujah! ::shouts like an old woman in church::).
Also, I started school on-line at Art Institutes and I'm studying graphic art..........and my job is paying for it. I am really having a good time. It is really fulfilling. So I'll probably let them whores pay my tuition until I get my degree and then chuck the dueces on them whores. Aaaah paid education. It's a wonderful thing...
Speaking of work, I am going to take a leave of absence really soon, because I may be going on tour with Zack Williams and Byron Cage soon... It's a fall tour that I'm really not supposed to say much about. So I'm not going to lol.
In other news, my mother boought me a Louis Vuitton KeepAll 45 duffel bag when we went to Chevy Chase 3 days ago, so that when I travel for work, I can travel in style... ::shouts again like an old woman in church::
Also, those avid readers of my blog know and remember Marcus well ,and we're actually going to be roommates. Yeah I know it seems crazy and unexpected, but we've actually become really good friends over these last few months, and it's a really good way for both of us to cut costs. We've been looking at some really nice places in Downtown Baltimore around the area where the reunion was. Really nice that place is.
For those of you who wish to get in contact with me, neither my email address nor my Myspace page have changed so hit me up so I can provide you my phone number....
Hey where is my cocoa and my warren boo?

Anywho, I just love being gay. I really do. I was on BGC last night looking at some of the Forum Posts, and i just smiled and said to myself "These are my people!". Here is a list that I comprised/am in the process of comprising about why I love being gay.
- I love the way gays have this like inate sense of humor and wit. It's just amazing to me.
- I love the way we as gays are so creative when it comes to artistic stuff; art, singing, etc
- I love the way we (those who are out anyway) can just strut down the street and just pump and not care
- I love the fact there is such a dynamic in our community.
- I love the fact that when we as gays have family problems, other gays surround them and we have these familial bonds that are closer than blood.
- I love the way homos have taken over the fashion industry
- I love the way homos have taken over the gospel music industry
- I love the way homos have taken over every industry
- I love when we dress up in drag, girls are envious
- I love the way that even though we will take extreme measures, we are the most image conscious people on earth
- I love the way our culture has evolved into something grand and beautiful
- I love the way the older gays give the younger gays advice
I don't know, just something that came to mind. I'll be adding more as more comes, but in the meantime, you guys can add on if you like

First, I've been talking to this guy Black Prose on and off for like almost a year now. Our relationship is interesting because he is a writer, and he's super intelligent and really deep, not to mention, kinda cute. Well, recently, we started talking again after like a 4 month hiatus (due to my recent induction back into the MySpace fam), and here and there we conversed and traded pics, etc. etc. and I was just happy not really getting anything from him but the occasional "howdy." Well, the other day, I got a call from him; or so I thought. It was actually his boyfriend pretending to be BP asking me various questions about how I was, did I think he was sexy, basically trying to get me to tell him what was really going on between me and BP.... he succeeded. I sang like a canary. By accident. Well, at the end of the convo, he says, this is not really BP, this is his boyfriend. I bet you didn't know he had one of those did you. He went on to tell me they had been dating for some time and all this other shit I didn't too much care about... Nonetheless, I contacted him via text saying "Hey, I talked to your boyfriend the other day" and this is the response I received:
"I know... I heard. And I know that I can not talk to you anymore. I never wanted anything from you. The reality is that I wanted everything from my boyfriend. Instead of facing the problem within my relationship, I strayed and ran away else where. My whole problem with me is that I am afraid to face my own demons. I am sorry to hav eled you on because I never wanted anyone but him. So that said, I can't have anything to do with you. And I will not, simply because my bf means too much to me. And right now I am losing him. So goodbye. Please don't call.

In other T, the reason I haven't posted a lot lately is cuz I haven't really had anything significant happen in my life. Things have been good, but they've been bLaH, so there hasn't been too much interesting stuff going down. I've been wracking my brain for things to write about, but I've just been drawing blanks over and over again. It's ok though, I have a fLaShBaCk for y'all.... Thoughts of Jared in red
Sooo, when I was like 17, I was on this whole "I'm 17, and I love older guys tip"....now don't get me wrong, I still gets life over an aged distinguished gentleman, but it was really bad back then. But anywho, I was working at Gap at the time, and this guy (about 36, 6'1, coffee with cream complected with a low fade, super duperly attractive) walks in and is like, "Hey uhhh, I'm going to a conference for my job, and I need a few outfits to go because it's going to be in Miami and I don't have any summer clothes. You look like you know what you're doing in the fashion department, so could you hook me up?"
ok....ummm... Am I a personal shopper or a sales associate?
So I get him a few polo style golf shirts and some nice linen pants to try on. He takes them and goes to the dressing room and requests that I go back there with him so I can critique each outfit. After coming out of the dressing room with a few of the outfits and getting the JS stamp of approval, he asks me to get him some underwear.....
Wha.. huh?? Ummm ok...
I asked him what kind he liked and he just said that he wanted me to choose....
Fast Azz Jared enter stage right
Now this man's waist had to be about a 35" or 36", but I went and got the smallest pair of boxer briefs Gap has ever sold and went back to the dressing room and was like.. "Ummm, I hope these are the right size" in a coy and shy manner... He put them on and modeled them for me.... I had an orgasm then, and I'm having one right now....
So anyway, after all was said and done, I took his clothing items to the register (he purchased the boxers, hell he had no choice, he put them on)... and rang up his purchase. He gave me his Visa... DECLINED. He gave me his bank card... DECLINED. He gave me is MasterCard....wait for it, wait for it, wait for it... DE-DAMN-CLINED. So after all the shame and embarrassment was wiped off of his face, he finally gave me cash, and his business card, and told me to call him so he could take me on a date after he got back from his trip. Now all of the aforementioned events should've Red Flags, but I was stupider then....
So I got off of work and called... let's call him Broke Business Professional - BBP for short. I called BBP and we spoke for a couple minutes and set up our date which was set to be at Phillip's Seafood Restaurant downtown, one of my favorite restaurants in el Mundo!
FF a week and a half.
We met at the restaurant, I in my best date outfit, he in his....he smelled really good that night too.... Anywho, we laughed, giggled, talked about our families, such and such, blah blah blah, you know, stupid date talk, when all of a sudden as the food was clearing off our plates, and cups were being emptied he got a call on his blackberry that he answered and put the index finger up to signify just a minute.
He stands up and goes to the sitting area and I just sit there finishing the last of the shitload of food I had ordered. Hell, I wasn't paying for it... or so i thought. Do you know that nigga up and left me at the restaurant to pay the bill????
I guess it wouldn't have been so bad if I had money but I didn't, so I had to call my sister and have her bring the money, and what made it worse was I had to tell her how stupid I was.... I still get clowned on for that by her.
I saw BBP at an event my job was doing at the Marriott a couple weeks ago. I look of utter shock and embarrassment controlled his face as I pumped over to him, shook his hand, and kep' it movin'.....lol
Oh yeah, one more thing, I just joined the MySpace family again, so if you have a page, add me!! You can find me by my email, email@example.com

- Work has been busting my ass, so I've taken up a new hobby.... smoking.. I don't know
- why I even started smoking, because previously, I think I've only smoked like 2 cigarettes, and even while smoking these tobacco sticks, I don't know if I feel any different or "de-stressed" if you will. Maybe all psychological. Everybody keeps telling me, "stop smoking those goddamn cigarettes and get some weed", but 1)I've never smoked weed and don't have the desire to do so 2) I'm too scared that my job will do some random ass drug screening and ill come up positive for MaryJane and then get fired... mmmm. Plus, at this point, I'm not too fond of addictions.
*I went to the studio Friday and let have.... I noticed that when I smoke a cigarette before I sing, it gives me this Dorinda, Jon Legend-esque rasp that I absolutely adore, so I think before I sing in the studio again, I'll smoke a cigarette.
*I went to the club Saturday and had a really good time... that is until I saw 6'4. He had an attitude that I was dancing with this guy that he knows... childishness will not be tolerated in the latter half of 2008.
*Speaking of latter half of 2008, can you believe that this year is like almost halfway over? New Years' resolutions have not been at all honored.
*YouTube has been like my saving grace. Yesterday, I browsed YouTube for like 3 hours after I got off of work....
*I've been thinking about my life and my future, and I realized that I want to have a family, and possibly some kids. Like 6 months ago, the mere thought of having kids made me vomit in my mouth, but I think I'm softening up .
*DC Pride is this weekend, but the way I hear it, everything's gonna be dead because everybody is going to be in Miami... I may be partaking in some Pride events, so I'll post about it, if I do go.
*I like the question posts that Darius and Fuzzy posted, and I might do one later, but I think I'm going to put some rules up too, because y'all bitches are nosy lol!

Things have been pretty good around here lately. Today I finished paying the majority of my bills so I have the man off my back until this time next month.
The hair that I shaved off of my face in an effort to change myself is rapidly growing back and causing hair bumps... damn
Is everyone in the gospel music industry gay?
Is it bad that even though we're not together anymore, me and 6'4 are still having "relations"?
Fantasia is going to be in Baltimore Sunday, and I am soooo going to see her.
I finished watching Elizabeth, The Golden Age starring Cate Blanchett. It was really good!
Sooo why are they shutting down the Krispy Kreme by my house, and the closest one other than that one is 45 minutes away... I'm writing a letter. Pissed.
My birthday is Friday, and I don't know what the hell I'm doing. hmmmmmm......
Sunday, April 27, 2008
Thursday, April 24, 2008
I digress. Soooo, I told 6'4, whose real name is Albert (I have no need to protect his identity anymore because we are no longer together, and I don't care)... Sooo, I told Albert that I would be going to the reunion and I wouln't be able to spend a lot of time with him . we had this conversation like 2 weeks ago. He wanted to go to some of the events, but I told him no, because it was a BLOGGER FAMILY REUNION!! 2 MySpace blogs don't count sir!
So, Sunday, after the NJ kids left (and btw, Ty, I know you wrote a fabulous post, but your blog doesn't show up on my phone + I'm computer-less at this point in time. no shade. lotsa love ; ).. So, Sunday, after the NJ kids left, I showered, took a quick nap, and headed over to Al's house. He was acting some kinda way. Very quiet, distant, attitude-y. I asked him what was wrong. "Nothin". I asked him if I had done something "No." I asked him if he was hungry. "No." So then he says "I'm going to my friend's house. I'll just see you whenever."
So after that, I went to my sister's and just chilled, laughed, talked to her about my weekend, but then I got bothered by Albert's attitude. I texted him saying "Babe, I haven't seen you all weekend and I miss you." to which he responded, "So when your friends are here, I'm not good enough for you, but when they're gone, you wanna be in my face? Are you ashamed of me?"
Did he just take it to another dimension? Oh but I thank God hunny.
So I told him of course not and I love him and nobody else had their bfs and stop trippin', etc etc.
So then he reverted to this I want to be left alone mode where he claimed he wanted to be left alone but yet he went to the club, and was full of life at work.... but you want to be left alone right?
So finally, OJ (Old Jared)came out and he said, "Fuck It" : )
Yesterday he texted me and asked me when he could come get his things because our relationship was built on a lie and he couldn't do it any more, so I promptly packed his toothbrush, his hair brush, and his towels and his cologne and his bball shorts and dangled them over the balcony of my apartment. He's tall. He'll get it.
So, as is standard after every breakup that I have, I did something crazy. I cut all the hair off of my face, cut my mohawk, and enrolled myself in bartending school. Since he has so much time now, maybe he'll see me slingin' drinks shirtless ; )
I'm doing a whole lot bebtter than I thought I would be, and actually, I fell happy and free.
Today I got my FrEaKuM dReSs out of the cleaners too!
Wednesday, April 23, 2008
By the way. sorry for the delay on this particular posting. I haven't really been feeling too hot and I think I may have pink eye. : (
I digress. I had a fuckin ball this past weekend. I have never had so much anticipation for one weekend, and with the anticipation, came no disappointments.
I really don't want to go too much into detail about the weekends events because 1) my fellow bloggers have for the most part touched on everything, and 2) I was shit-faced the majority of the weekend, so I don't really remember too much anyway.
Friday night, I got off of work and trekked to DC to pick up fellow blogger and close friend Joey (joeybahamas.blogspot.com). and from there, came the suite, and from there came the introductions and from there came the alcohol, and then everything was a blur after that.
Much love to EVERYONE in attendance. I really enjoyed myself.
SEE YOU IN SAN JUAN WHORES.
Oh and by the way, I am currently seeking a new boyfriend. If anyone is or knows someone who is interested, give them my email address : )
Tuesday, April 8, 2008
I also started painting this week as well. My theme and color scheme changed from the ever classic black and white, to chocolate and cherry red, to tan and brown, to not giving a damn anymore and deciding not to paint, to finally settling on a cute combination of "true walnut", "pear green", and "flamingo melon". I finally got my Blockbuster card so as I painted, I watched Wanda Sykes and Margaret Cho stand up.
It feels so good to have all my bills paid.The rent is paid, BGE is paid, cell phone is paid, car is full of gas, fridge full of food.... Wonderful feeling it is.
::sidebar:: this bank teller Carlos is fine as shit!
Me and 6'4 went to dinner last night... : ) sigh....
This Friday, me and the group I sing with are opening for the concert I was telling you guys about a few weeks ago. The Dorinda Clark, Tye Tribbett, and Richard Smallwood.... SUPER EXCITED!
Can you believe that I'll meet all my blogger pals in almost a week????
Thursday, April 3, 2008
At work, I took a new 4x10 schedule which basicaly means as opposed to me working my regular 5 day a week, 8 hours a day shift, I'm working 4 days a week and 10 hours a day. It seemed really great at first, but now I'm beginning to think it was a hasty decision that I should've thought through a little more. Granted, I do get 3 consecutive days off, but that's overshadowed by the fact that I really don't have shit to do those 3 days, I don't get shift differential anymore, and these 10 hour days are beginning to whip my ass. I guess the determining factor of whether or not I keep the schedule is when I see my April 18th paycheck.
In other news, me and 6'4 finally got something together. I'm not quite sure what that something is, but it is what it is. After not speaking to him and not so much as even nod in his direction when I saw him at work for a few days proved to him that I was not playing with his ass. He finally got the nerve to call me and we had a lovely dinner and conversation about our future as a couple. I guess suffice to say, something is there, just not too sure what it is yet, but whatever it is makes me feel good.
I've decied that before I get the rest of my furniture in my apartment, I'd like to paint. I'm noy sure what color scheme or theme I want to go with, but right now I'm working with a blank canvas, so the sky is the limit. I just purchased a signed picture of the queen herself, Ms. Knowles-Carter, but I'm not too sure where I want it to be on my walls.
Last night, I went to Blockbuster at around 10ish because I was bored and frankly, I'M tired of watching the same DVDs that I own. I guerss I forgot that I would have to have some sort of membership card to rent, and because of the late hour, I wouldn't be able to partake in anything they had to offer. I just went to the "Adult video store" across the street and ate shrimp all night with 6'4 and watched porn. How bout them apples Blockbuster?
Is anyone else like totally shocked that the reunion is like in 2 weeks??
Thursday, March 27, 2008
Now, I know this may be chicken ass for some, but it's awesome to me!
What's The T has been an outlet for me to say whatever the hell I want to say. It's been a journal for me to write in, and it's been a shoulder for me to cry on.
On top of all that, I've made a family that is absolutely the best thing that's happened to me. A core group of friends that I can share experience with, get advice from, or just have a grand ol' keke session with. For that fam, I thank you.
Aaaand what better way to celebrate my 100th post then getting a call from my doctor saying that I'm negative for all STDs!!! : )
Here's to my first 100 and 100 more!
Tuesday, March 25, 2008
I'm sooo sick of having my fuckin feelings hurt. It's like I'm just a tarhge for that shit. It's like this beautiful man comes in on his white horse and his iron suit of armor, but in the end the iron turns out be aluminum foil.
In the beginning, you get all these "baby, I want to be with you forever" and "baby I will never hurt you" statements that aren't even worth shit.
To me it's like a used car salesman. He gels that hair back and puts on that brand new suit and coaxes you into buying a piece of shit car, and then when you drive it off the lot, the engine fails and the tranmission falls out!
And the part the sucks the most is, I'm always the one that holds up my end of the bargain. i'm always the one that communicates, shares emotions/feelings, take care of my significant other, etc. and I never get it back, and then my feelings are hurt.
Oh well, the freakum dress is comin out tonite.
Thursday, March 20, 2008
So, here lately, I've been busier than a one legged man in a but kicking contest, but all good things though.
I finally got 6'4 the hell outta my house long enough to get some kind of cleanliness, orderliness, and semblance in my home. I ordered some furniture, and now i'm just waiting to see that BGE bill lol. To be totally honest, I spent a little bit more than I should've this month, but it's all good because I have enough for rent (lol, I think).
The last few days have been the busiest yet though; but it's ok because I got to cross a few items off of my Life To Do List (which by the way includes making love to Idris Elba, skydiving, going on tour with Fantasia, Beyonce, and the Clark Sisters, etc.)
Yet I digress lol. Anywho, one of my good friends, T who is extremely gifted in the field of music asked me if I would consider singing with him and a group of other talented musicians for a studio recording. of course I obliged, and let me just say, those people are the most talented group of people I've ever had the pleasure of working with, and I don't even regret using my second to last sick day to be apart of this effort.
Now, this is not my first studio experience, it's actually my 6th or 7th, but the professionalism and the sound that was produced by our sound tech/engineer was absolutely amazing.
In 2 days we banged 6 songs out, and for anybody that is familiar with studio recording, or just music in general, that's a lot of ground to cover with singing, breaks, solos, redos, bathroom time, jokin around, etc.
Anyhow,I can't wait til our next session and i'll definitely let you know when our "album" cuts...
The above pictures are of me and the group and them tramps sang me into a filthy dirty frenzy you hear?
Friday, March 14, 2008
Basically, the pictures I posted of my crib are pretty much identical to what it looks like now. Boxes and dirty laundry have taken over lol, but it'll be taken care of soon enough.
Communication with my parents has been minimal, but good nonetheless. I think I miss them, but not enough to be home sick...yet. It's only been a week.
I had to call maintenance already because my toilet is backed up and my oven started smoking when I turned it on : (. lol... a mess.
Last night I went to Club Bunns in Baltimore. I am not a big go out, clubby person,so when I go, I do it big. Yes, it was chilly, but No, I didn't let the temperature control my wardrobe choices. I had on some charcoal and white cuffed mid thigh shorts and my Steve Madden knee hi gold cowboy boots and a little seafoam green t-shirt and a big locket and my Marc Jacobs sunglasses.
The night was fun I suppose. I guess as fun as one can imagine. A bunch of alcohol ridden dudes rubbing their hard ons into my back and whispering what they wanted to do to me in the privacy of their homes... yeah, it was alright.
But that's what I've been up to here lately. How've you guys been?
Monday, March 10, 2008
Oh and by the way, yes that's Beyonce on my refrigerator, and yes that's 6'4 laying on my mattress lol!
Have a good day!
