Mid Point check in: Switching Gears

At this point, I’ve been running My Infinite Playlist for a little over half a year. I’ve happy turn up GIF by Originals-sourcelearned somethings about blogging, running a site and the direction in which the blog is going.  So far I have seen a little increase in dedicated readership. Which is what I would like. I want the reader who will stay with us through the journey. The passive readers are great too. I’m confident in the content that I create on this site, and I am sure once a member of our target audience experiences the world of M.I.P they will stick around for good.

“We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours…”

New Themes:

I realized the true direction I wanted to take this blog. It started off as an interracial blog, wonder woman beyonce GIF-sourceand I would still like to keep that as a topic that we visit. However, I really would like to focus on the overall theme that black women and other women of color are non-monolithic. We are all different, we are into different music, style of dress, dating patterns. We live alternative lifestyles and we are even into alternative forms of beauty. We can be vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian. We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours, like beer brewing and tattooing. K-music, J-music, Latin Pop, Afro Beat, EDM, and rock are just some of the genres where we are widespread and share an interest in. We are feminist, traditionalist, minimalist, members of the 1%, political powerhouses, Rap songstresses, and women extraordinaires. We are all of these things under the umbrellas of being people of color and being women. We can be any label we want to apply to ourselves and not just the label assigned to us. We are allowed that basic human right.

“I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. “

Forging Ahead:

So in the continuity of this blog, I would like to document those experiences of women. Especially, women of color who are forging in directions that aren’t traditionally ours to be had. I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. We will continue to be all of the sexy millennial fun of man crush Monday, and we will mix it with the radical faces of women who refuse to be labeled.

“I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed”

Hey You, Yes You. We’re Looking for you!

We are still looking for contributors that share our vision and that can offer a view into giphy (72)the world of women doing things differently. We also want people who can tell their personal experiences and stories of breaking free or living alternatively. I’m excited to share this new direction with you, and I’m thrilled to share a safe space for women of color to be who they are.  As always, thank you for supporting the blog on WordPress and Social Media. I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed. I love you Playlisters, Besos!

How to: 3 ways to break up, that are more mature than ghosting.

You’ve met someone online, and you don’t like them. So, you want to pull a little disappearing act millennials like to refer to as ghosting.  It is the cowards way out if you think about it. Instead of telling the intended how you feel (being a mature adult), you choose to become an escape artist. Now you see me, now you don’t. Computers and smartphones have made it even easier to leave someone on read (sidenote: if you have an iPhone they can see you read a message and didn’t respond). Thus leaving them on read, you’re welcome non-millennials.). If you throw in online dating to the mix, you now have a powder keg of communication avoidance. You’ve never seen them face to face, so it’s easier to disregard their feelings. I’m here to improve your online and face to face relations. Here is my playlist on ways to end it rather than becoming Houdini reincarnated.

Say it to my face-Madison Beer

Face to Face is always the way to go for more serious breakups. If you are in a relationship with someone the least you can do to look them in the eye. We quickly forget how things are when the shoe is on the other foot. You asked yourself a million questions. Why has this person disappeared? The cell phone that is permanently attached to your hand becomes a fixture for your eyes. Anytime your phone lights up, you’re hoping it’s from that someone. In the back of your mind, you already know that it won’t be. You’ve likely sent a few more text than you should have and stalked them out of existence online. I’m sure you called them hesitating on whether to leave a voicemail. You start to wonder if your phone is even working. It has been with you a while, maybe it isn’t operating properly after all. Don’t put someone else through these mental Olympics, even if it has become part of our culture.  If you have been seeing someone for a while, even if the commitment isn’t official, end things in person. The closure isn’t just for them. It’s for you as well.

Video Phone-Beyonce

Technology has made some aspects of communication easier. If you are in a long distance relationship with someone, then video calling is the next best thing. Traveling all the way to someone can become expensive. It may not even be necessary if the relationship wasn’t official. Video calling gives you all the perks of face to face. The downside is physical touch won’t be there. If you are breaking up, chances are that isn’t a concern.

Text From Your Ex- Tinnie Tempah

This is the last of your options if you were in a relationship. But, if you have only been corresponding through text it’s perfectly fine. When you haven’t spoken to someone face to face, it’s the easiest to ghost them. I see the allure in it. It’s so easy just to not respond back to a message. You never have to talk to them again. We’re practicing better communication skills people. It starts with the text-only level of dating.  Send a simple message. It doesn’t have to be an sms paragraph. Explain that you don’t see your interactions going any further or that we aren’t the right fit for one another. If they want a further explanation, you can give it to them. If you don’t want to give them one, it would be the time to ask them not to contact you. Ask that they respect that. If they can’t well… Blocked.

Technology is an amazing invention. It gives us ways to communicate if face to face isn’t an option. It also makes it entirely too easy to be a coward behind characters and emojis. Being an adult means to be responsible with relationships as well. Making sure you do the right thing isn’t just for when you like a person. It’s for when you are ready to walk away as well.

I hope this helped hone your breakup skills. If you like post like this, let me know. Leave a comment telling me how you broke up with someone. If you have a crazy breakup story I would love to hear it. As always thank you for supporting the blog. You’ve been patient with the changes going on with the site.

Zaddy of the Week: Christian Yu

Christian Yu is a stone cold fox, and I literally had to come off of my hiatus to tell you guys. Every ounce of this man is a thirst trap, and I don’t understand why he has to trap us so hard. Everything about him is built for ultimate lustification, from his tattoos to the way he styles his hair. I mean, he took a picture of himself waking up and I still wanted him. That’s a gift right there. If you feel like being thirst trapped, follow him on Instagram @christianyu_ . You’re welcome. ❤

MCM, I Went Viral Edition: Chuando Tan

I went to get gas today. I went to a sketchy gas station attached to a restaurant. I only Screenshot_20180723-221951stopped there because I was practically on E. I was skeptical of the station because people run this scam where they hack the pumps and charge you as soon as you run your card for a higher amount. I pumped the gas and didn’t get a receipt. So, I went inside to make sure I wasn’t getting charged more than I paid. I go in, and bam saw the hottest Sikh guy behind the bulletproof glass. But, since I didn’t get his picture. You’ll have to take my word for it, lol. Anywhosal….Happy Monday. It’s everyone’s favorite MCM where you get your thirst quenched. Kidding, you get thirstier because MIP keeps it sort of hott. Speaking of hott, have you seen the 52-year-old man from Singapore who when viral for being a complete Zaddy?  I saw him and never thought I would hand over my phone number to a senior citizen so fast. Is he considered a senior citizen? Idk. All I know is I considered having his old ass babies, and I’m not ashamed. I’m in one-sided love (only because he hasn’t seen me yet, haha) and I’m pretty sure it’s serious. I’m meeting him at the altar in my white dress.

Screenshot_20180723-221933Dude, have you seriously seen this guy???? A year ago today he went viral for being super hott, and the ex-model turned photographer basically became a model all over again. He did some modeling in his younger days, but I think he’s hotter now than he was then. He aged like a fine wine…that I would like to sip. I’m going to keep it pg because I’m trying to respect my elders. However, I do wish this was one of those k-dramas where he’s my teacher and we end up dating after I graduate…because I would judge him super hard if he dated me in high school. It’s gross. Let’s scratch that example. It’s bordering on pedo. He’s steamy though and I wonder how someone becomes that hott over time. It’s like God tried to only add a dash of handsome and dropped the whole bottle in the pot. Anyway, he’s good looking. That’s what I’m getting at. Hey Chuando Tan. I wish I was Mrs.Tan, but I heard there may already be one of those. So, right now I’ll leave it at my crush on you.

MCM Bollywood Edition: Vicky Kaushal

It’s everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday! With my hands in other writing projects, IScreenshot_20180716-205413 wasn’t quite sure if I would make the man crush deadline this week. However, I pulled through however late I am. This week I wanted to tip my hat to a genre of movies that I personally enjoy. I tend to visit a Bollywood film every so often (every week). This particular guy is a really really good actor, but I like him particularly because he’s hott. This week I’m showing all the love to Vicky Kaushal.

I’ve seen him in Lust Stories and Love per Square Foot, as well as a host of other titles I Screenshot_20180716-210054can’t pronounce nor spell without it being directly in front of me. I normally have to read the subtitles to know what’s happening, but if he marries me I will gladly read subtitles forever. Orrrrr I’ll be enrolling myself in the nearest Hindi class so I can at least say my vows, lol. I know you guys think I like him just because he’s hott, and you’re half right. However, he really is a good actor. He’s more than just a pretty face and he has the awards to prove it. He’s actually one of the few people that I believe when he’s on screen, and that’s a compliment. It’s hard for me to believe a lot of actors when they are on screen. They just seem like they’re acting. However, he actually makes me believe he’s actually the person he’s portraying on screen. That alone is swoon-worthy. I can probably ramble on forever, but I’ll try and keep it brief. Vicky Kaushal, I would gladly change my last name for you, lol. I may just have a crush on you.

MCM: Rotimi aka Dre of Starz’s Power

Welcome to everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday. So, Rotimi basically makes me wantScreenshot_20180709-230414 to visit Nigeria. Spoiler Alert: He’s Nigerian, lol. I won’t lie, I absolutely hate him on the show. He has his moments when he’s hosting in the club where I remember he’s actually hott in person (he likes to call himself Butterscotch). However, in the show (sorry Dre) he just doesn’t do it for me.

However, in real life… (**fans myself from the heat) he is Screenshot_20180709-230521smokin’ hott. AND HE SINGSSSSSSS. Not like how hott guys say they can sing, but they actually suck. He actually is pretty good at it. So far he’s hott, he can sing and he’s pretty good at acting (because I hate his character…but not him, let’s be clear). I’ve posted him before on my Instagram page because he posted a thirst trap that I could appreciate. Rotimi, you are basically the love of my life and I have a crush on you.

MCM: Kim Woo Bin

If you have ever laid eyes on a Korean drama, you know exactly who this man is. He’sScreenshot_20180702-230751 tall and looks like he came off of a Korean runway. I last saw him in the Korean drama Uncontrollably Fond and the movie Friend: The Great Legacy before he took off for a year for health issues. I just want Woo Bin to know that even though he’s recovering that he still has women who want to cook him a hot meal and see him shirtless.

His look has a mixture of taking him home to meet your mother and see him naked. 

Screenshot_20180702-230646So Woo Bin is basically 6 feet 2 inches of hotness. His look has a mixture of taking him home to meet your mother and see him naked. He’s basically perfect and that makes me want to go ahead and take him off the market (wait, is he coupled up already? Someone comment.) Anywho I randomly out of the blue wanted to show my appreciation for this 28 soon to be 29-year-old tall drink of water. Just know if you ever want my number it’s already printed up on a business card for your wallet and in your DM’s for your convenience. Woo Bin, You’re a snack…no no a full course meal and I have a crush on you.

Zaddy of the week: Maluma

Maluma is muy caliente and that’s the truth.

It’s everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday, but I’m a day late. So we now have us a ZaddyScreenshot_20180626-191202 of the Week. Trust me I have a man worthy of your eyes. He’s easy on the eye and he sings. So basically, you’ll want to willingly hand him your panties twice. I think I need Roetta Stone to learn Spanish. Oh did I mention this post wasn’t kid-friendly, lol?

Maluma is muy caliente and that’s the truth. I follow him on Instagram and I feel like I underestimate his finesse from his music videos. I feel like his pictures ooze sex appeal. I’m sure I’m not the only person who wishes he would stop reminding me has a girlfriend. She’s cute, but she’s kind of ruining my fantasy of running away with him (LMAO). If it doesn’t work out, Maluma knows where to find me.

I’ve been eyeing Maluma for awhile now, and I’m glad I have Man Crush Monday and Screenshot_20180626-190859Zaddy of the Week to express my undying lust for him (I’m sure he has a nice personality too, lol). Maluma you soak my undergarments and you make my heart go pitter-patter. In the least raunchy way I know how I want to say, Maluma I have a crush on you.
