I find that people ask me, "what does check the shades mean" a lot. A while back, while creating my twitter I needed an @ name, I wanted something that would get people's attention but at the same time, after gaining peoples attention I wanted them to automatically know "that's Crys-chelle." What ever it was it HAD to do something with shades. I got to thinking and it wasn't long before check the shades came to mind. For years check the shades continued to be my twitter name and it had no other value besides twitter purposes. One day it all clicked. I finally understood what check the shades meant. Check the shades means, check out (observe) the many different shades (types) of people around you. Check the shades means, check out (observe) my shade (personality) it says something about me. Check the shades means, check out (observe) situations through other people's shades (points of view). Check the shades means, check out (observe) the world in the many shades (diversity) it has to offer. The phrase "check the shades" is more powerful than I can explain, honestly, check the shades can mean whatever you want it to mean, depending on what shade you look through (how you look at it).
If I shall die before they wake, I pray the Lord my shades are safe.
