The Quest Chronicles: Relationships in 2018

TQC

RELATIONSHIPS!!! Boy have they changed over the years. From the way men court woman, to the importance of a relationship status, to playing with emotions as if they don’t matter.

This is an ongoing topic so I with tease you all with a few highlights & please feel free to comment afterwards.

There’s a hashtag that circulates all over the internet including memes which states ” Relationship Goals (RG’s)”.  RGs are ideals, lessons, values or experiences to aim for in your intimate partner relationship. Instead of being unattainable, it should be inspirational.  RG’s varies from Barack Obama & Michelle to Jay-Z & Beyonce & one of my favorites Papoose & Remy Ma just to name a few. Who wouldn’t want to be a power couple? Beside couples, when referring to values & lessons I ask you, what are your RG’s as a single person? What’s are you RG’s as a couple? ( Please Comment Below)

Throwback: I remember when a man use to approach a lady he found attractive and would ask her out on a date then start courtship to see if things can go any further between the two. Many don’t even know how to ask a woman out properly anymore. How many of us have heard, “What’s good with you? What’s up? You tryna get up?  Netfix & Chill perhaps?”  It became so bad, guys don’t even bother to ask for phone numbers anymore. They ask for your Instagram name. This can’t be reality. I met a man at a lounge a few months ago, we conversed for a while and when he asked for my phone number, it was so foreign that I was turned on. How refreshing was that? What is social media doing to our culture, our society, our relationships? Living in the world of “Trending” is not looking so good. But let me shout out the men who were taught right, who still have old fashion values, who still have respect for woman, who still court. Everyone has not been brainwashed by the negativity of today’s society.

Ladies, you are not exempt from these behaviors because many of us have been not playing our parts neither.  This topic I shall go further in dept at another time so please stay tuned.

Taking it back to relationships: I remember being asked on many occasions, how important “titles” are when it comes to relationships. To me personally, I believe they are very important. In a way, it’s a sense of security in ones mind. If both parties agree to not have a title but a clear understanding to what’s entailed when it comes to their as I say “Situation-ship” then they’re fine. On the other hand, without proper communication & just going with the flow, problems have a possibility of growing. If I’m playing the role as a girlfriend without a title TECHNICALLY he’s not mines. If he wanted to talk to other females or date them, can I really get mad if we didn’t decide what this is between the two of us? Communication is key!

Like I stated earlier, this topic is broad and I can go on forever. I appreciate one of my readers suggesting that I speak about this. Keep them coming! There’s so many things I can discuss & break down so let’s have some fun. Comment below your feedback on the topics I spoke about above as well as give topics you’ll like me to address. Keep in mind that I will soon bring my blogs to my up & coming podcast & radio show. With that being said, you all have to continue to follow me to keep up with all the latest!

The Quest Chronicles

The Quest Chronicles-tquestglm (1)

It’s Tuesday, T-Quest Tuesday that is! I go by the name T-Quest & welcome to my world. Love, Life Music & More from MY perspective. I would like to thank Straight Official for having me apart of the team. As a blogger, I will be allowing you all into my world, my adventures, experiences & more. For those who are new to my world, let me give you an insight to who I am and what I’m about. I’m what you call  an overall entertainer! A music artist, party host, radio personality, comedian, fashion designer & the list goes on.

Being involved with many aspects of the entertainment industry, it allows me to not only be in the forefront but behind the scenes as well. If you’ve seen any music reality shows excusing the “scripted parts”, you would see that everything of the industry is not glitz and glam. Fans look up to us in admiration but tend to forget that we’re human too, Which means, we cry, get angry, have confrontations, stress and anxiety just like everybody else. We’re more relate-able than the average person may believe. For example, I personally feel fans get a better understanding and a more realistic love for celebrities  when they watch their “Behind The Music” specials, listen to certain radio interviews, watch biopics & read their auto-biography’s  because that gives celebrities the opportunity to connect with you and show a more vulnerable side once the camera is off, the mics are off and the wigs are off.

Imagine knowing your favorite music artist goes through the same pain you do. Imagine your celebrity crush having more in common with you than your best friend. Imagine your quirkiness and unique style is actually cool to the same people you look up to. Just because you see them on the tv, watch them in concert & hear them on the radio doesn’t make them that much different than the average person. Let’s make the connection.

As you take a QUEST through my world. You would read about my perspective on many topics.

LOVE: My favorite subject. From time to time, I will answer QUESTions from my fans about their relationships or lack there of and give my opinions only to help not to enable.

LIFE: It can be hard especially juggling the many dynamics of it but I am here to give advice & tips to make it easier. Whether it’s about family, finance, business, etc.We’re a village to let’s help one another.

Music: The true love of my life & a soft spot because this is not only my profession, it’s my passion, my escape & happiness. I love to help those coming up with me & make them aware of certain things they may have not been taught. This new generation is emulating social media & lacking true teachers to properly guide them the right way through this industry so here I am!

MORE: The most exciting portion of this blog because this section may be filled with fashion, radio, SEX & just imaginations running wild! Mature audience is advised! lol

Let’s have some fun together. Email me topics to discuss & QUESTions you may have. To learn more about me or to hear more about certain topics in dept please dowload my app “T-Quest” & visit my website GottaLoveMeWorld.com

[NEWS] Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years for drugging, sexually assaulting

0925-bill-cosby-mugshot-montgomery-county-jail-2

Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby will serve three to 10 years in state prison, Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O’Neill ruled on Tuesday. The former television superstar, who traded on a squeaky clean, fatherly image, was sentenced after being found guilty of three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault in April in one of the most widely publicized trials in modern history.

Cosby’s legal team asked that he be released on bail, pending his appeal. However, the judge denied that request. He will be sent to prison immediately as Judge O’Neill deemed that he could “quite possibly be a danger to the community.”

The sentence is significantly lighter than the possible maximum sentence for his crimes, each of which carry up to 10 years in prison, meaning he could have served a 30 year maximum sentence. However, District Attorney Kevin Steel asked O’Neill Monday to sentence Cosby, 81, to five to 10 years in state prison. However, Cosby’s defense team argued that even that would cause “excessive hardship” to the elderly star.

“What does an 81-year-old man do in prison?” attorney Joseph Green asked the court. “How does he fight off the people who are trying to extort him, or walk to the mess hall?”

However, Cosby’s accuser, Andrea Constand, as well as the more than 60 women who have come forward with allegations against him in recent years, argued that the man once heralded as “America’s Dad” should not get a pass for his crimes just because of his age and status.

“I wasn’t sure what had actually happened but the pain spoke volumes,” Constand said in an impact statement to the court. “The shame was overwhelming. Self-doubt and confusion kept me from turning to my family or friends as I normally did. I felt completely alone, unable to trust anyone, including myself.”

Cosby’s sentence comes after a lengthy trial that resulted in one mistrial and an eventual guilty verdict, over accusations from former Temple University employee Constand. He was found to have drugged and sexually assaulted Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Since then, multiple women have come forward against “The Cosby Show” star with similar allegations of assault.

“So to say that he’s too old to do that — to say that he should get a pass, because it’s taken this long to catch up to what he’s done?” Steele said, his voice rising. “What they’re asking for is a ‘get out of jail free’ card.”

The first part of the sentencing hearings focused on the prosecution’s efforts to label Cosby a sexually violent predator. Despite efforts from Cosby’s defense team to argue that he is no longer a threat to anyone, Judge O’Neil ruled Tuesday that Cosby will be given that label. The classification means that Cosby must undergo lifetime counseling and report quarterly to authorities. His name will appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools and victims.

Cosby’s trial was heralded as the first major celebrity trial of the #MeToo movement, and the first to result in a conviction. Cosby’s reputation sank after comedian Hannibal Buress brought up the numerous sexual assault allegations against the comic in 2014. Since then, more than 60 women have come forward with allegations against him.

“The victims cannot be un-raped. Unfortunately, all we can do is hold the perpetrator accountable,” said Gianna Constand, the victim’s mother, who testified Monday that her daughter’s buoyant personality was forever changed after the attack.

More than a decade prior, Constand sued Cosby in 2005, settling for nearly $3.4 million. In the deposition for that case, Cosby admitted to buying Quaaludes and giving women drugs and alcohol before sex – although he said every interaction was consensual. Constand’s allegations were the only ones that could bring about a criminal case against Cosby as many of the other women’s accusations fell outside the statute of limitations.

[ENTERTAINMENT] Sesame Street’ writer saying Bert and Ernie are gay

index

Frank Oz is voice of dozens of puppets and muppets as one of Jim Henson’s earliest collaborators — and now the storied puppeteer is lending his voice to the debate over whether or not “Sesame Street” characters Bert and Ernie are gay.

“I created Bert. I know what and who he is,” Oz wrote, squashing the idea that Bert and Ernie were a couple.

The decades-old discussion over Bert and Ernie’s relationship status raged on Twitter after former “Sesame Street” writer Mark Saltzman told blog “Queerty” he wrote the duo as a couple based on his own real world relationship with film editor Arnold Glassman.

“It seems Mr. Mark Saltzman was asked if Bert & Ernie are gay. It’s fine that he feels they are. They’re not, of course,” Oz wrote in a tweet. “But why that question? Does it really matter? Why the need to define people as only gay? There’s much more to a human being than just straightness or gayness.”

Oz continued to go back-and-forth with people responding to his tweet who asked why the colorful puppets couldn’t be gay.

“When a character is created to be queer it is indeed important that the character be known as such. It is also important when a character who was not created queer, be accepted as such,” Oz

A statement from Sesame Workshop, which produces “Sesame Street” initially said that the pair had no sexual orientation and that they were simply “best friends.”

That statement mirrored a 7-year-old statement issued after a petition to have Bert and Ernie marry on the show earned nearly 11,000 signatures.

But on Tuesday night, Sesame Workshop updated their statement to say that the show had always promoted inclusion.

“Sesame Street has always stood for inclusion and acceptance. It’s a place where people of all cultures and backgrounds are welcome. Bert and Ernie were created to be best friends, and to teach young children that people can get along with those who are very different from themselves,” the workshop said in a statement emailed to NBC News.

Oz continued to take to Twitter, telling followers he felt he couldn’t call Bert and Ernie gay because in his mind it wasn’t honest.

When asked why he felt the need to identify the puppets as “not gay,” Oz replied: “The same need I would feel if Bert were identified as a linebacker for the Colts. It’s not honest.”

He also wrote he was happy that people — regardless of their sexual orientation — were able to see themselves in the colorful characters.

“What matters is that if people see positive views of themselves and others in B & E,” Oz wrote.

Eventually, Oz decided to to bow out of the Twitter debate, thanking his followers for engaging in the discussion with him.

“Been tweeting waaaaaaaaay too long. But it was good. And I learned something profound. Thanks for those who tweeted with me. Next time I would be very interested to know: If Bert and Ernie were indeed gay, would they be different than they are now?” Oz wrote.
