Surviving Distractions: How to identify them and how to stop them

By Felicia Clark 
I sit down to do a write-up with my deadline for completion in two days. After showering, I change into my pajama bottoms and an oversized shirt. I grab a glass of wine, chips, and my laptop. My blanket and pillow are on the sofa. My rain sounds are going. I decided that everything's in place. I plop onto my sofa and proceed to write. All of sudden, PANDEMONIUM. “Ma! Can you please bring me a towel?! I forgot to grab one!” One of my sons yelled from the bathroom.
After grabbing a towel and handing it to an awaiting hand sticking out the slit of the bathroom door, I sat back down upon the sofa and proceeded to write. 
Ring! Ring! Unh unh, not answering. The phone stops ringing. Ring! Ring! Same number. Not answering. Then it rings AGAIN! Same number, belonging to my bestie. She’s called 3 times in a row.

Remember a couple of months ago on the Soul Train Awards Jon B and Donnell Jones graced the stage with some of their greatest hits? It propelled me to recall a simpler time. A time when love actually meant love, and sex in music was often times served on delicious platters of innuendos! That time has passed. So much so that Chris Brown released a single today called "Wobble Up" that urged the fine ladies to "wobble on the dick". Very classy. But, I digress. Anyway, whilst checking my YouTube notifications I found a lovely surprise.

Jon B and Donnell Jones have released a new single/video titled "Understand". I like this song. I can see myself curled up with my boo, sipping wine, and enjoying each other while the track plays. So for me, it's definitely worth the listen. Tell us what you think in the comments.
