ramblings of a broken heart

friends only

13 October
first of all... i represent HIPHOP.

i've had this journal for about 8 years now. i'm no big-time music industry cat or anything, just a lover of music, hiphop especially. this journal is sorta my collection of interesting hiphop stories/findings and bits and pieces of my life along the way. enjoy, or not... i don't really care =)


******my name is nina. cali is where i stay. born in harbor city, raised in long beach and rowland heights, moved to stockton in 8th grade and back to LA for college (CSULA). i've resided on this planet for 20 years. i'd give anything to know in high school, what i know now and i bet some years from now i'll be saying the same thing about college. time brings change... lots of it, but i'm still me. i've grown in many ways and i've learned so much. there are many individuals to thank... i can't name them all but i hope you know who you are.******

ME NOW? (updated 2/09)

its 5 years later and the name is the same
the location has changed
from so cal, to nor cal, back to so cal
now again in nor cal..
sacramento to be exact.
also known as the city of trees!
i've been here for about 3 years and living life day by day.
i've grown even more.
experienced more.
learned even more.
lived more.
more grateful for all the blessings in my life.
and thankful for each breath i take.
i'm moving forward and not looking back
because that's the only way i'll progress.
what i said before remains true:
time brings change and lots of it...
but i'm still me
and noddin' my head to the same ol' beat..
