ThatsMyJAM90/FlavorMeDope Sweetest Day contest winners…

Yesterday we took our talents downtown Flint to meet up with half of the winning couple…Bae had to work, we understand..

Symphani, Stanay, and I met up with Tamia and her son Mase to give her the winning prize! Six pack of Cookies and Cream cupcakes made with all kinds of love! She was definitely excited for the sweet treats for her and Thomas to share (Maybe) today…

The other judges and myself decided to pick Tamia mainly because she has to deal with Thomas and she loves to do so! Tamia submission wasn’t your classic “I saw him at the bar and I knew right then and there he was bae” entry… Her submission touched briefly on her toxic previous relationship and said how Thomas decided that he gave no fucksabout the guards she’d put up he kept on tryin her until….. well he got her!…

We got the chance to meet their famous son “Mase Dawg” a.k.a Blue Ivy Little Brother … He was seemingly turned down which is unusual, we usually see him in rare form on social media! Mase has just as much personality as his mother and father!

Happy Sweetest Day to our winning couple! Tamia and Thomas!

Check out a snippet of her submission:

I never would have thought I could love again after being in a toxic relationship. The saying is Never say never right? I finally broke free from that relationship and that’s when my guards were at attention 24/7 typical scorned female right, anywho Thomas said fuck them guards and continuously flirted with me via fb. I eventually gave in and let my guards down.

Look at the personality shine through in the photo she sent in, gotta love it!

Kim Harrison

Often I am asked to do things for people in the name of their dream. And sometimes I oblige, most time I oblige. But just recently I sat down and spoke with a woman in which I’ve known for quite sometime. Mrs. Kim Harrison, she asked for my help just as anyone else with a dream or a goal. However her dream and goal is a tad different …

Mrs. Kim Harrison is a 44 year old woman born and raised in Flint, Mi… She is married to Steve Harrison and together they have to children, Stephan and Shaquita…. Stephan (the oldest son) is serving our country as an active member of the U.S. Navy, while Shaquita (The younger daughter) is a student at U of M Flint. Kim had to Retire early from General Motors due to her Illness, she is currently battling Polycystic Kidney and Liver disease.

Due to the complications related to her condition her husband has had to cut back on hours at work resulting in lost wages. As a result of her treatment she has had both of her kidneys removed and must have dialysis daily in order to survive. Her diagnosis requires that she have a double transplant (Kidney&Liver) which makes her condition very serious and means her donor must have passed away.

There’s a lot of travel involved in her situation due to the way the donor recipient system works. Kim May in fact have to travel to one of the several states where she is registered to receive a transplant at a moments notice. As a result she must have the necessary funds available to cover the travel expenses she incurs. These expense include but aren’t limited to : Lodging, Meals, airline tickets etc…

Any financial donation you can make, no matter how small. Is greatly appreciated by Kim and her family.

Please register as an Organ Donor with the Secretary of State and encourage your friends and family to do so also, there’s a GREAT need for Organs in the state of Michigan as well as across the country. Those who receive (the gift of life) these organs greatly appreciate your kind acts!

In the bible the book of John 15:13 NIV says….
[13] Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
The same can be said of those who donate organs….

Please send any monetary donations to:

Mrs. Kim Harrison
P.O. Box 320935
Flint, Mi 48532

Also stay tuned for more ways to contribute to this worthy cause.
If you or anyone you know is having an event where donations can be collected please contact myself at ThatsMyJAM90@gmail.com or call me at 810.643.1795 …

Sharing a bit much…

Last week I posed the question to my social media:

Why is it that men will make they girl sound like a tough pill to swallow on social media? But when they do something sweet it’s hardly ever mentioned?

For example a common man tweet will be like “My girl stay tryna argue”… Or “Maaannn this brat shit is for the birds”… But never will you see anything about the big Sunday dinner, or the dope as birthday surprise… I follow a lot of men on social media and I don’t really see much about their women but the women I see (even myself from time to time) “Loving bae” or “He’s perfect”…. The flip side to that is women post about the good and bad and look mad unstable too

Anyways I posed that question on social media and I got these responses:

While everyone is entitled to their own opinions I wasn’t moved by those responses. So I asked a few friends

One of them said:

Because y’all suppose to do sweet shit

In which yea no whatever lol

But the other took a different approach, one in which I could dig and respect.

It depends on the kind of man you’re dealing with. One type of man will do things like that to get the attention of the lurking women who are secretly waiting … But a real man does it because women being a brat or wanting their way and women naggin or wanting to talk about something at an inconvenient time is a universal trait yall share and its a struggle we all have with yall at one time or another. That leads the men who are watching our lady to believe that she’s no different then the ones they can readily have. And that allows us to keep our treasure. We know our woman is dope but they don’t need to know what she does to be so dope or worth keeping.

This response moved me, the conversation as a whole moved me because it embodies the truth. If you want to keep your treasure you definitely wouldn’t tell other people where it is..

Feel free to comment or share your opinion on this topic!

Souled Out … Just a bit…

Less thn a week ago singer Jhene Aiko released her album Souled Out.. With any hesitation I downloaded it on my iTunes and immediately began to listen to it..

The overall album is a very beautiful work of art. You can tell that’s she’s in a place of peace and reminiscing with this particular album when you hear the melodies and beats to each track. All of them in which have a real chill and serene sound to it… From start to finish I approve this album

I’m not going to go all in and review all of the songs just a few personal favorites.. Starting with:

IMG_4089.PNG

Remember

This song is clearly about a break up, but the after math… Reminding the ex of who they were in the relationship. Making sure that they know to tell everybody the whole truth, not just that I might’ve been crazy.. Tell em about the things you lied about… Making sure they know, I don’t hate you it’s just messed up that things didn’t really work out..

With lyrics such as:

Do you remember who you were to me?.. Cuz I do

Tell all the homies that you’re the one to blame, and when you speak my name. I’d like you to explain the lies you told me

Now you coming back?.. Second chance? Fuck all that… You gave her what we had yet there’s no love lost here

Blue Dream

This song has to be related to a love interest who made you see life in very different way. You know that person who taught you something? The one that gave you experiences that you’ll never forget?.. That one that was sooo ideal.. The to good to be true love.. The one you dream about

With lyrics such as:

My mind has opened so wide since you came inside

We were coasting on the coast when you open my eyes make me notice where ocean was holding the sky

It seems that you are the truth itself cuz nothing else can take me so far

IMG_4091.PNG

Promise

This is a sing for mothers with children who work hard to provide for them and want to just make them proud.. Who wouldn’t love this song? And her daughter sings apart of the song

With lyrics such as:

I been coming home late night, I been sleeping pass day light

Promise you’ll be alright if anything should happen

Mommy really needs you, and I will never leave you

I am go make you so proud and you don’t ever have to worry about me

Seeing as I can over do it a tad when it comes to the music I really love I purchased the deluxe version.. There are many more great songs to choose from on this album. And the songs I decided to give a small description to have way more to offer… I think Jhene Aiko really has something here with this album, it depends on what place you are in. But there’s at least one song to strike a nerve for every woman and maybe even men as well…

Souled Out

You should wanna taste this… #FlavorMeDope

All of my friends are blessed with amazing talents and gifts. But one of them is blessed and highly flavored!

My friend Symphani McNeal has been my friends for about 7years now and we’ve always been expressive with one another about our dreams and future plans. While mine probably had a lot to do with love and relationships.. Hers had more to do with her love for music and cooking.. Symphani and I always related well when it came to music, she’d put me on some dope music and I in return would do the same for her.. But cooking has been hers all by herself. I can cook but Symphani is all into it presentation of meals and all..

About a year or so ago we sat at Barnes and Nobles and discussed our dreams and how we want our futures to play out in great detail.. And at this present moment I’m proud to say that she has made a grand step in the correct direction…

Her amazing cupcakes are now in a restaurant right here in Flint, Mi…

It’s my anniversary!….

In September 2013 I transferred all of my post to my own domain from my blogspot account.

On September 12th 2013 I wrote my first new post on ThatsMyJAM90.com … Titled

Don’t knock the hustle

That day I had no idea that I would be at the place that I am now…

The purpose of this site was decided to be for dreamers and goal accomplishers.. I have a real love and appreciation for those who work hard for their dream and those who are very passionate for what they do. It’s something about the sparkle ✨ in someone’s eyes when they talk about what they love. So I decided to use my site to give them some exposure as well as spread some positivity around… No shade to other blog sites because I read some good gossip from time to time myself I just don’t want to spread it.

Since I’ve started I’ve been blessed to meet many people and get to know them and their dream. Most in which I’ve kept as friends and others I still do business with … Writing is something that allows me an outlet my site gives me a place to say what I want how I want when I want… And to me that important… The interviews I conduct with people are the most fulfilling thing about the site. As I said before getting to know people’s dream and goals is something you can put a price on.

Right now I thank God for the 8,000 plus views I have gotten in this year. To some that isn’t a lot but to a woman such as myself it means the world 🌍…

This is only the beginning… Even greater things to come

A dream deffered

Last night while scrolling through my Instagram I stumbled across the Instagram of Kyona McGhee … A lot you don’t know who she is. And well I am about to tell you.. She is the owner of an amazing Christian ministry that produces clothing and more for young women across this world

Daughter of the King

I’ve been a very loyal supporter of this woman for years now. She didn’t start out with her ministry she started out with a dream of being a lawyer. She once had a website KimoraCochran.com where she’d report about legal matters of the world or celebrities. And even then I was tuned in…

20140801-074025-27625893.jpg

Just recently something very amazing happened for Kyona. A true blessing from God. And she took it to YouTube to share with us all. I had the pleasure of viewing this last night and you’ll have the pleasure of viewing it now:
