First of all, let me say thank you for stopping by to read my blog. I know there are 23,583 other things you could be doing on the internet right now, like watching a girl catch herself on fire “twerking”or old people reacting to Justin Bieber.
Sooooo, the fact that you stopped by to catch up on my thoughts about the first episode of “The New Atlanta” means a lot to me.
Let me just say — full disclosure — at the beginning of the show I said, “I can get any girl that I want.” (I may or may not have been sleep talking). I am very confident in the man that I am, but I am not cocky enough to think that I can get ANYONE. This also may be a different story when I have a few drinks in me, because when I am approaching a girl, I have no shame and will even make fun of myself in order to get her attention. But, as for this working out for me every time? Not even close.
With that being said, I’ll start off this post with some background on my relationship with Emily. As gorgeous as Emily is, she and I have always just been friends. When I first moved to Atlanta about three years ago, Emily and Justin had just started dating, and I worked at the same bar as Justin. I would always see Emily coming to visit Justin , so we all just clicked. She is a total sweetheart, and it is nice to have her to talk to when I need to hear things out from a female perspective. When you first see me and Emily at 5 Paces, that’s the bar we really do hang out at all the time, and we both love it! But, at the same time, I feel like we both want to explore Atlanta and see what else is out there .
When Africa and Vawn get together, you can start to see immediate chemistry. Seeing this for the first time kinnnnnddddaaa made me a little jealous, I’m not going to lie. Africa is drop dead gorgeous. When Emily said there was some interest, it definitely made my ears perk up. Africa is so talented and going to be very successful.
In the last scene, I never really got the chance to sit down with her and talk because of all the damn drama that was happening around us. Some of these women just don’t know when to shut up! I know it’s not fun to be talked about, but just LET IT GO! I meannnnnnnn dayummmmm y’all! (Side note: When Vawn asked me about the “Number question” at the end, I don’t really want to know as long as you treat me like your first. Insert: “Awwwwwwwwwww.” Jk Jk)
But Alex, bless her heart, is not afraid to speak her mind. However, I think she may have met her match with Emily. I have known Emily for a long time now, and she is not afraid to fight back and let the claws come out.
This is a group of five strong-minded, opinionated people who aren’t afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Needless to say, this is going to be a fun show to watch, so stay tuned!
