YOU’RE LOST, BABY STEP OUTSIDE YOUR MIND
Allannah James, known through the party circuit as ‘Lannah’ or ‘TJ’ was born on April 10, 1995 to Teresita and Allen James. Ever since she was a kid, Allannah loved being around other kids. She was always the one to start up a conversation or ‘break the ice’ in a room of new kids. Being that she didn’t have siblings, she figured having lots of friends was the next best thing. It’s fitting to say that childhood was a breeze for the young woman. Popularity wasn’t something she paid much attention to; she got along with everyone for the most part. It was all about making friends, not being part of a clique that was prejudiced. That wasn’t how she was brought up and her parents wouldn’t stand for it either. Allannah always got invited to everyone’s parties, whether they were small get-togethers or full out bashes.
During high school was when she really began to mold herself into the woman she wanted to be. Entrepreneurship was a topic that always interested her. Since going to parties, and spreading the word about other parties was her forte, she decided to create her own promoting business. Getting paid to party seemed simple enough so she drew up a business plan and presented it to several local teen clubs and lounges in her area. It wasn’t instant success or a walk in the park but after several mass texts, days of handing out flyers and hours spent on the computer; Allannah made a name for herself in the promoting community. She became the go-to girl for the most happening parties in the Vegas area. That was where she first encountered Ecstasy and Xanax. With heavy partying mainly on college campuses, she was bound to be exposed. Because she was still under the watchful eye of her parent's and focusing on her studies, Allannah kept the drugs to a minimum. It was after making a name for herself that she established her own business, ‘Caffeine Aftershocks’. The focus of the organization was to promote parties and any other events she saw fit to.
While working took up her free time, she still passed her classes with flying colors and graduated with honors. After her second year at CSN majoring in Business Administration, Allannah expanded her organization and enlisted street teams to make the workload easier. Her most recent business venture has been into modeling. It's mainly for promotional purposes, but she welcomes what other perks that come with the exposure. Now that she's in Ashwick and living on her own, Allannah has fully delved into the dark side of the partying lifestyle; drinking and drug usage.
THINKING ‘BOUT BEING BAD EVER SINCE I PUT YOU ON
Being resourceful is a major part of the business that Allannah operates. She always has to be in the known about any event that she promotes. If there’s a delay she’s the first to know and the first to relay such problems to her intended patrons or ‘crowd’ if you will. There are very rare instances when you aren’t allowed admittance to any function bearing her name or affiliation. If she puts her name to it, there’s no room for error, confusion or discontent on any level. She didn’t get where she was today by not delivering and giving false claims.
Allannah often acts on impulse—which is good and bad. She prefers to do things and worry about the backlash later; the whole ‘YOLO’ and live for today attitudes applies greatly to her. Her spontaneous demeanor is what makes most fall in love with her—albeit literally for her ex, or current—and has landed her success. If she was guarded and over-thought every aspect of her life, she doubts that she would have turned out to be the woman she is nor would she have thrived. It’s working for her and doesn’t plan on changing it anytime soon.
It was her spontaneous behavior that landed her in several relationships, varying from flings to serious. Allannah is a very romantic individual and loves being the giver and receiver of affection. There’s no greater joy to her than being in a relationship—in any form—with someone that wants to satisfy you and be in your presence. Spending a day preparing a romantic dinner and quality time for that special someone get her engine running. Since she was younger it was safe to say that she fed off of attention in the friendship category and the same applies to her love life. In some instances she’s been taken advantage of, but Allannah is growing every day.
Since being here in Ashwick, Lannah has made her presence known. She’s currently managing the Calmare Lounge, owned by Roman De Luca and working to grow her brand. The focal point is still Vegas but she needs a street team to get things off the ground. With larger cities neighboring this one, and her influential demeanor, Lannah feel that isn’t going to be too hard to do.
I’M ON CLOUD NINE, BABY YOU’RE BEHIND
In such a short time, Allannah has made her parents proud. While being an event promoter isn’t what most kids dreamt about, she had her own dream and made it a reality. They applauded her for setting her goals, accomplishing them and especially for finishing school. Education was important to them as was self-expression. Allannah didn’t fall into that stereotype of kids that took journeys to find themselves and eventually fell off the face of the earth, doing nothing with their lives. Allannah kept it together even when it seemed like it wouldn’t work. Doubt and negativity was something she faced every day, but still she persevered and kept at it; letting nothing stop her.
She didn’t do it alone though; support from her friends helped her a great deal. Allannah wouldn’t be anywhere without their love and support. One friend in particular—her best friend—was the best thing that’s ever happened to her. From the moment he came into her life he became a major faction. Lines were crossed—ones that perhaps never should have been—and now they have a mess on their hands. His reappearance in her life is what caused the conflict in her most recent relationship with Jacob Rowan. She allowed old feelings to cloud her judgement and temptation got the best of her. She was forced to come clean about the encounter and as a result she is single, but still harbors feelings for Jacob. Lannah has in a sense cut ties with the very friend that made her stray.
Newly single, she has thrust herself even more into the party circuit, numbing herself with liquor and drugs to cope. But this isn’t a side that she shows to everyone. Allannah gives off the vibe that she has everything together because that’s who she has to be. Lani isn’t one who worries; doesn’t problems and much less a man put her in turmoil. So, she buries it. Lannah doesn’t want anyone to worry or criticize her for her choices. After all, she is usually the one most receptive of people and their perhaps unorthodox life choices.
