Crying Isn't A Sign of Weakness


Pet Peeve: NOT LISTENING

 I have many pet peeves. One of my biggest pet peeves is when you're giving someone information and they ask you a question that you just answered.  THAT IS FREAKING ANNOYING!!!!! I work in customer service and it irks me when you are giving an explanation and you have to repeat yourself several times.
  It makes me wonder i "Why am I wasting my time when you aren't listening."  It's enough that unfortunately when it comes down to my sexuality and gender identity as a transfeminine/transgender person that people hear only hear what they want. 
  When will people shut the hell up and listen?! Did you know that listening is fundamental?  When you don't listen you make yourself look like a donkey's ass.  Take the time out to listen. It will enrich your life.
Smooches,

I'm BACK!!!!

     Hey Family, 
  I'm back!!!! I've had a busy weekend and I needed some time away. I did win my category for BQ Up in Pumps!!!! I'm very excited.  Despite many things that have happened over the weekend and some arguments that ensued, however things are going better than expected.  
  I'm refreshed, happy, however I did end up leaving the Ballroom scene over the weekend.  I proved my point that I am a winner not only for Grand Prizes but for of the year in some areas.  I've had a good run for the year lol. 
  Now my focuses are on building my brand as Yannick Taylor, Yannick's Youtube, This Blog, and Ministry.  I'm also working moving to the DMV. Things are slowly but surely coming together.  Just keep me in prayer.  More exciting posts are coming soon,
Yannick

Yes I'm a Homosexual

  It's Sunday and Time to relax and rest. However, I have something to get off my chest.  Yes, I am a homosexual. I am Gay, Black and Proud. My sexual identity is just a part of who I am.  It doesn't dictate my talent, worth, or where my soul will lie after I die.
  I have a strong, solid relationship with God and I know that I will NOT be going to hell for me walking in my truth.
There I've said it. I am homosexual.

Don't Count My Pockets!!!!

  One thing that I hate for people do think, is that they are entitled to the money that I make. Especially Family. That is a very, very large pet peeve with me. When someone counts your pockets,
 that means that they look at your wardrobe, your car that you drive, and what you do during the weekend and the weekend and attempt to determine how much money you make and possess.
  This has proven true with one of my relatives...the Dear Uncle.
  Recently, I received my portion of a settlement and I made the stupid mistake of saying something to Dear Uncle about the settlement.  This man had the audacity to ask me for 99 percent of the settlement...I looked at him like he had lost his everlasting life. If looks could kill, trust he'd been dead, brought back to life, and killed again.
  It's annoying whenever pay day arrives or I have to pay bills or I go shopping, that Dear Uncle always asks for money or always makes requests for what I've worked hard for.  Since, I am currently living with him, I do help out with groceries and help out with the bills of the utilities that I use. I do my best by him and I do as much as I can without breaking myself.
  Over the weekend, my baby love gave me a pair of shoes and Dear Uncle asks "I see that you got a new pair of shoes, but you claim you are limited on money." When Dear Uncle cracked them old, crusty lips of his that need a woman or man or which ever he prefers, I said to myself "Bitch, Please Stop Counting My Pockets."
  I quickly quipped back, "these were a gift." I automatically tuned him out. During this 7 Days of Refreshing and Me time, I've really been holding my tongue and ignoring a lot of peoples antics. Why? I don't have time for childish, attention seeking, adults who don't know how to stay the hell out of their feelings.
  It's a New Day and a New Yannick (Musique).  I guess It's time to piss some people of. However,
whatever you do, please don't count my pockets. My money is not your money. You did not work eight plus hours to get that check, nor did you go through hell to rehearse with people who are difficult, and nor did you have the idea to write anything in any of my blog posts or vlogs.
DON'T $&%*^(% Count My Pockets!!!!

7 Days of Solitude: A Fresh Journey

  As I write this blog to you, I've found myself horribly distracted here lately.  The distractions include life, family, work, and my own crazy mind.  With so much going on sometimes it is hard to focus and it is hard to get peace of mind.
  Here lately I have been struggling with topics to write in this blog. I've struggled for new things to talk about on youtube.  Is it possible that there is too much going on around me? I've gotten to the place to where I've declined invites to go out to write music and I've began ignoring phone calls to focus on me.
   I think it is time again for me to steal away and refresh myself for a while.  Every now and then we need a refreshing in life. I am a firm believer in taking some time away.
  For the next 7 days, I will be taking some time for me, however, you all will be taking that journey with me. I will still be blogging and posting.  WARNING: This may also invoke a change of routine for me and you as well.
Live, Love, and Be Free,
Yannick

Maybe I'm Crazy


Maybe I'm Crazy.  I'm not sure what you would call it. For the last 24 hours my mind has been all over the place and I've literally wanted to fall off the face of the Earth and just not be bothered.
  I'm severely irritated with somethings at work and my head is just swimming with ideas and dreams that I want now. 
   I'm trying not to blow a gasket, while certain family members are ripping my nerves apart with their stupidity, but God knows all I can do is pray and seek refuge in Him.  I haven't been feeling like myself here lately for some reason.  It feels like I'm just here taking up space.  
  I'm feeling unfulfilled. Maybe I'm crazy or maybe I'm just bored with certain aspects in life.  I really need a change before I go snap, crackle, pop!!!!

I Stopped


I stopped worrying about other people.
I stopped living my life to please their opinions.
I stopped limiting myself.
I stopped dying and started living.
I stopped dreaming and started being.
I stopped the norm,
and became the abnormal.
I stopped being their puppet,
and I started
being me.
I stopped the bondage,
and I've found my Freedom.

Wednesday Thoughts: Life, Love, and Music (Check Out the Videos)


  Music is my life, my passion, and my love.  I've been singing since I was a child.  I started taking piano lessons at the age of 5 and even majored in music and obtained a Bachelor's degree in music in 2009. 
  Many people ask me why I chose music. Well, Music is a universal language that reaches everyone.  It touches the very soul. It brings people together. I'm like Patti Labelle, Music Is My Way of Life.  Music is the way I am.
  That's why I'm so adamant about furthering my music career and furthering my passion. I have great plans for myself. I would like to do workshops as well as act as well.  Hell, I want to finally live my dream.  If I don't do it, who else will.   Below are some samples of some covers that I've done. Let me know what you think.

Strength in Saying "No"

  Recently I had a situation in which someone called me "weak" just for saying no to a proposition that could land me in a lot of trouble spiritually and could really mess up my life. That often happens in life whenever someone offers us a deal that sounds too good to be true or when we are in relationship and someone wants to sample our tasteful nectar saying no will make them mad and cause us to seem like a punk, wuss, or weak. However,  I've often found that saying "no" is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of us being stronger than what we thought.
  Saying "no," will also allow you to see who your real friends are.  Whenever a person asks you for a favor and you really can't help them and you say "no," their reaction and actions will say a lot.  If they say "I understand man. You're always there for me," they are very understanding. If afterwards they still hang around you and end up giving back to you for what you've done for them, then they are for real. However, If they say "Why can't you help me? You're full of it," then it's time for you to run away from them and leave them be.  By you saying "no,"  you have just eliminated your parasites.
  Again saying "no" means that you are stronger than what you appear to be.  Even when it comes to people attempting to tempt you to do dangerous stuff "no" expresses your integrity.  Remember your "no" shows strength.

Still Two Americas by Ben Sargent


This Too Shall Pass Away

  There is a song by the late Phyllis Hyman that says "This Too Shall Pass Away."  These are words that I live by. I do believe that the current storm that I've been in shall pass away.
  Here lately, I've been feeling a bit over worked and stressed out and wanting some personal changes. I've also been grieving also with the calamities of the world. It can be a bit overwhelming.  All I can do is pray and try not to focus on it. I do believe that this too shall pass away.
  It seems that at every turn there is something to piss me off or someone to get on my nerves and not let me be to my lonesome. Even my own, Love Interest knows I need my space. However, he is very supportive at this time as he helps me prepare for an even in Atlanta this weekend.
  I just need to really get away from it all. This weekend will be a weekend of rest and working on some things for Musique. I really need to  just take more time for me.  I refuse to die of  a stroke, heart attack, or nervous break down.
  This too shall pass away.
Love ya,
Musique

A New Day, A New Week


    It's a New Day and a New Week. What will you do with it? Will you spend it regretting and worrying about missed opportunities?
  It's time to start fresh and to continue on. It's time for you to aim high for your dreams. Speak positive things over yourself. Don't stress yourself. It may be, Monday, but it's a new day for new opportunities to arise in your life!!!
Love ya,
Musique

Sunday Dinner

  Hey Guys,
 I pray that you all had a wonderful Sunday.  Mine was great and I enjoyed every bit of it. I spent the day with my Grandmother, Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, and Nephews as well as my Dad.  It was restful!!!
  I had a great dinner and I had a peaceful day of movies and smack talking with the Suber Clan. It was a joy for me because lately, I rarely have time for Sunday Dinner with the family.  Growing up and even before I graduated from college, Sunday Dinner was a staple in my upbringing and even into my now, adulthood. T
 Thank God for Sunday dinner. I can't wait to start my own family and continue on the tradition,
Love ya,
Musique

Rest in Power: Robin Williams

   Wow, I am shocked and saddened at the passing of iconic actor, Robin Williams.  This is too much. Many of you know him as "Mork" from "Mork & Mindy," "Mrs. Doubtfire," and "Jack." We even loved him as Genie in Disney's "Aladdin." 
  I'm not going to go into specifics about his death, but just keep his family in your prayers. They really need it.
Love you, Mr. Williams. Your legacy Lives On.
Musique

You're Free, Genie
