I am a busy bee.
1. Classes are keeping me busy. I have been very successful. Only one B.
2. Went on an interview. Did not get the job. I am quite okay with the outcome.This is the second time I have interviewed for this particular position. Probably the last. God has a plan for me.
3. It's the holiday season so I have obligations with the church. Rehearsals and so forth.
4. I believe that I am going to start a new case for my volunteer position.
5. Have a meeting at the end of the month for future home buyers. Getting paperwork in order for that.
6. Trying to stay social with my friends.
That's what is going on with me. Just trying to stay sane.

As a student I do remember wearing my hair wrapped up in a scarf almost every morning to class. (8:00am courses) When I look back at that I know that it was not appropriate. Colleges and Universities are learning institutions. Not only are you enrolled to obtain book knowledge, but you also get training on how to make it in the real world. You learn how mature into responsible women and men.
A young man wearing a mini skirt and halter top to class I believe is inappropriate. It's a distraction. I also believe that it is inappropriate for a young lady to wear a mini skirt and halter to class. It takes the focus off learning. I do not want to see a man wearing a skirt. It is ridiculous. My blog, My opinion. Sagging pants is just plain stupid and pointless. For men and women. If these students were in my class, I would have to ask them to leave. Period. Don't like my rules sign up for someone else's class.
It has been a few years since I have stepped foot unto the AUC but I would hate to see that the students are not taking pride in their school. It is not like they don't teach you the history of the school. There is a mandatory class dedicated to this your freshman year. HBCU's are special. I hope the students aren't taking this for granted.
Some say that it's a free country you should be able to do what you please. I agree this is a free country. This country grants you the ability to make choices. There are thousands of higher learning institutions. Don't like what the school stands for, go somewhere that is more acceptable of the things you believe in. That is one of the great things about being an United States Citizen.

As you can see I changed my background. I am trying to embrace the season. LOL I also added a new tune. It's not Wednesday but I felt like doing so here it is. Mo Better Blues. Remember the Spike Lee movie? Well I liked it and I love this song from the movie.

After partaking in the biddles we walked the red carpet to get our picture taken. I thought it was so cute. They had backgrounds set with our Rock Girls logo and the many sponsors for the event. It was very Hollywood.(LOL) We went inside the sanctuary and took our seats for the fashion show. It was cute. They had people from the congregation design, and sew pieces to be shown on the runway. I like this idea because I got to see the talent that we have in our church.
There were many giveaways including: purses, mall gift certificates, gift baskets, food gift certificates, audio sets of pastors teachings, new ipods, and two bridal gowns.
The choir then had to lead praise and worship. None of us knew what songs we were going to sing but it all worked out well. Then the guest speaker was introduced. Her name was Dr Stacia Pierce. She was outstanding. She had a right know word for us ladies. Basically she was telling us that we are in a moment that God is going to show us favor because we are his favored. She stated that it was time for us to get back to being what God intended us ladies to be. Praying women. Deeply planted in the word. She said two things that I know she was talking about me when she said it. 1) God has so many things in store for you that you could not even imagine but he need you to stop being comfortable with what you have and where you are. 2) Because you are his favored, he will align you with people who will work on your behalf. Meaning that sometimes you may not be the most qualified but you get the job anyway because there is something else on the inside of you that radiates to the outside.
It was powerful. Mom enjoyed it. I enjoyed it. Can't wait till the next time.

My reasoning for writing this post is that 1. I am plan tired of people dogging my home city. It may not be Chi Town, L.A or NYC but it's your home. It's what you make of it. 2. relocation is not a problem solver. If something is wrong with you on the inside, it will be wrong with you wherever you go until you solve the issue. 3. If you are going to move have a plan. Don't just make decisions and not know what the h.e. double hockey sticks you are going to do.
This person returned and blames things on other folks instead of themselves. Says that me and someone else called them selfish. I know I didn't say this.
Uggh............ I am not in the mood for this stupid crap.
Congratulate me ladies. If you can't tell I am really trying hard not to use any profane words in this post.Every time I go to use one I tell myself that there is power in the tongue. I am working on my deliverance.
Whew... Just needed to vent. Thanks for allowing me to.

You guys know who I'm talking about. Marvin Gaye. I had to pick a song, and let me tell you it was hard. How do you pick you favorite Marvin song. So this is not my favorite because I don't have a favorite by him, but I do happen to love this song "After The Dance." Hope you enjoy.

This month our church had a campaign (so to speak) called random acts of kindness. Everyday we are supposed to do something kind or nice for people. So I have been trying to keep up with that. What you don't realize is that you do kind things for people almost everyday like holding the door for someone or smiling at them.
I guess I could tell you that I love reality tv. Let me rephrase I enjoy most reality tv shows. Not all. I like Project Runway, So You Think You Dance, Top Chef,etc. I guess I could do another post just about that. Umm.........

Some people say its just like when we call each other the n word. Well I don't do that. Will I continue to watch the show? Probably. I guess that means I shouldn't be ranting about this but, I just wondered if anyone else that may watch this show noticed that they have really used this word more frequently than last season.
Ugh. I am just disappointed.

I also like the Black Vanilla leave in conditioner. When my twist out is getting old I spray this in my hair and take my fingertips and massage my scalp. It leaves my hair smelling good and feeling soft.
I just want to say that I am not endorsing Carol's Daughter Products. I also want to say that products do not work the same on everyone's hair. But these are working for me. Are there more natural hair care products than Carol's Daughter? Yes. I just already have these and will not purchase anything else until they run out.
For those who are thinking of going natural. It's a great thing. This may sound cheezy but I feel free.

2. I love Human Biology. I like watching and reading things about science and how the body works.
3. I sang in the Island of Grenada when I was about 10. It was for church. My grandmother bought me a dress form one of the local vendors. I went on stage and sang my song. There was a long note I had to hold at the end of the song. When I finished I let out a loud Whew. The whole church started laughing.
4. When I was little I used to carry around a bag with cassete's and a walkman. lol
5. I love to shop. It doesn't matter what it is for. I can tell a person what stores are where at every mall here in our city.
6. I love to travel. I used to go on a big trip every year with my grandparents.
7. I don't really wear tennis shoes. I don't have a reason to.
8. I have a friend that I have known for 25 years. We met in kindergarten.
9. I love to watch sports. Especially football. I don't like playing any though.
10. At this very moment I wish I was Kerry Washington in the Bad Habits video by Maxwell. If you didn't know. He is my pretend husband.

So you guys I am addicted to The T.O Show. Was I a fan of T.O? Not Really. There is a possibility that I may become a fan. We have to see how the rest of the show goes.
Last nights episode featured T.O going back home to Alabama. He has a heart to heart with his father, who his relationship with was sketchy. He also visits his grandmother in a nursing home. She raised him and now she has Alzheimer's. She was pretty much unresponsive. She would nod her head every now and then. T.O was telling her that he never forgets were he came from and how she raised him. It was a touching moment. He broke down crying. She spoke. She told him "you going to be fine son." I lost it. I was crying, He was crying. He said he knew that it was God and by her saying those words she understood everything that he was saying.
If you missed or don't watch the show at least watch this episode. It will be re aired, August 04
2:30 AM ET/PT ON VH1
Tuesday, August 04
1:30 PM ET/PT ON VH1

Let's start off by saying that I had a great time. I felt at home in the Big Easy.
The trip started off kind of rocky. The airlines lost one of my bags. It was not the bag with my clothes and shoes thank GOD. They did find it and returned it to me late that evening.
Within the first two hours of arriving me and the homegirls went to Mother's Restaurant for our first meal. It was two blocks away from the hotel. We waited in the beaming sun for about 30 min to get inside. When we got in to my surprise it was like a diner. You find your own table and go through the line order and pay for your food. Everyone that works there call the ladies momma. The service cussed and fussed like they are at home. It was funny.
The first night of concerts the artist that performed were, Salt & Pepa, Ne-Yo, John Legend, and Beyonce. They all did great jobs entertaining the crowd. John Legend brought out Estelle and they performed together. It was cute.
Day Two we walked through the French Quarter. We had some beneits at Cafe Du Monde. We went to the Carol's Daughter store where we ran into the founder Lisa Price. We went to the French Market, which I always go to when I visit New Orleans. It is an outdoor market that sells everything from food to clothing. The performers for the second day were Jazmine Sullivan(who we missed), Robin Thicke(great) Charlie Wilson (Outstanding) he has unbelievable energy on stage, Anita Baker( flawless voice), Maxwell( who I love but had to leave, it was 2:30 before he got onstage).
Day Three we went to Harrahs to eat. We had every intention to go to the TD Jakes celebration but by the time we got to the convention center all the seat were gone. We did walk around the convention center an visit some of the booths. It was fantastic. There were so many talented minority artist and designers. We decided that we were going to have a special dinner for our last night. We went to NOLA one of Emril Lagasse's restaurants. It was worth it. We had great service and wonderful food. When we arrived to the Superdome for the last night of concerts we had missed EnVouge which I was sad , but a girl has to eat. We arrived when Teena Marie was already performing. She did a great job. She had her daughter sing with her and let me say that daughter has a big future ahead of her. Next was Al Green. A mix of R&B and Church. I don't know how I feel about that. Then Lionel Ritchie got on stage. Let me say that I really didn't want to see him. He made me a fan. He threw down. He had a Commadores reunion and the place went wild. Everyone was on their feet dancing and singing it was awesome. Then the Band that shuts it down. My moms favorite; Frankie Beverly and Maze. Everyone was doing slides in the the Superdome to his music. Dancing in the aisles. It was magical. It was like a big family reunion. This night had to be my favorite night of all.
I recommend you attend. The concerts lasted a little to long but it was worth it.
Thanks Essence, all the performers, all the wonderful vendors I meet, and the wonderful city of New Orleans.
See Ya Next Year.

Two weeks ago I saw a documentary about Minnie Riperton. I cried. She died at the young age of 31 from breast cancer. She has a few songs that I like. Since I didn't post a new song on Monday I will post "Memory Lane." I also like "Come Inside" but it's not an appropriate song for my blog.

Saturday I went to an Art Party. I saw something I liked but I did not purchase. I woman that was the selling agent was trying to show me frames that would come with the print if I purchased. I told the lady that I didn't like anything gold. Why she kept showing trimmings in gold I don't know. Ugh! Basically I had to go over in her suitcase and find the frame option I would want so she could give me a price if I decided to purchase. I found a black frame and a brushed nickel frame. Simple and contemporary. Other people at the party were telling me that they thought my choice of frame was to plain. You guys know me well enough to know that this did not sit well with me. Why is it that lately people feel the need to offer suggestions that I have not asked for? I probably gave them one of my looks. Anyways, the print was of to faces a young black male and a young black female. It had muted colors like black, gray, and browns. It would not look good with a frame with intricate carvings. Plus everyone has their own style. I didn't offer my suggestions on their purchases. Gees.
Sunday I went to the Anthony Hamilton, Musiq Soulchild and Crisette Michelle concert. I have seen everyone in concert before except Anthony Hamilton. He was an awesome performer. Now usually I purchase very good seats. This time is was short notice and I went the cheap option. Mistake. Sis and I had to change our seats in order for her to see Anthony. There was a row of larger women that stood up from start to finish. Plus a lady right in front of me kept flashing me because her pants were too little and every time she got up her butt crack was showing. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let me just say that I don't have issues with larger people but I have to say that black people need to get it together when it comes to their health. Everywhere I looked there people who looked like the were on their way to heart disease, diabetes and so forth.
Good news. I got my laptop back. YEAH. Now I just have to get my software installed for my wireless Internet and I am back in business.

I had a kind of embarrassing moment this week. I normally am on top of things when it comes to my appearance. Well I put on this new dress the other day and did not know that you could see through it until 8:35 pm when one of my fellow choir members told me. I am so glad that I had on flesh tone underclothing. The dress being see through would explain why a man harassed me earlier that evening at the mall when I was picking up a cardigan from the Gap.
He asked - Where did you get the dress?
Me - Old Navy.
He- You have exquisite taste.
Me- Giving him the eye and crazy face ( thinking Old Navy not exquisite, just a plain ole store)
He- Don't you think?
Me- I say yeah ( so he will stop talking to me)( Maybe he is really admiring my handbag)
He- Continues saying something
Me- Ignoring him (cross over to the other side of the mall)
Me- Thinking ( Sexual Predator, he was kind of old looking and I look very young for my age)
He- Steady trying to talk to me.
Me- Speed walking.
Last Saturday my mother graduated with her masters of management. She did participate in the commencement because when she got her undergrad degree she did not walk so my grandparents got to see their only daughter receive her degree. Pics to come.
My PC is still out of commission. The tech called me last week because he thought that he had found the problem. Well he didn't. Now it has to go to the manufacturer. I will not talk anymore on this blog about my laptop until I get I back. I know you guys probably don't care :)
That's all folks. Blog ya in a few days.

I'm thinking that he doesn't work for the service department. He has not turned on the computer to see what I am talking about. Which means that you can show me how to do all this stuff and it may not fix the problem. His talking starts to make me angry. I know I was giving him one of my looks.
You may say, Oh he was trying to be helpful. I say I bought a warranty for this specific reason. So I shouldn't have to do a darn thing to it put turn it on and enjoy it. In the kindest tone I could I told him No. I was not going to do anything.
Mind you it was Sunday and I had just left church. I was thinking all sorts of nasty words I could say. But there is power in the tongue so I refrained. I think he made me mad because I didn't nor did the lady at the service desk ask him for his help. Did I get mad probably for no reason? Maybe. Do I feel Bad? No. It could have been worse.

I really feel empty without it. I can't read my blogs while I'm at work :(
Computers are like men in my opinion. Can't live with them. Cant live without them.

We went to see the movie Obsessed. I was not that impressed. The restaurant we were going to was in the same complex as the theatre so me and two other friends walked over. We were seated. Our orders were taken. I had started feeling bad again as soon as we sat down. I excused myself and went to the restroom. My friend that I rode with called my cell and asked if I was okay. I let her know the deal. She came in the restroom and she said "we are leaving" I really must have looked bad. I could not even drive myself home. She had to drop me off. Needless to say I did not make it to church Sunday. Now I have to deal with the choir police on Tuesday at practice.

My cell phone has been losing power for no reason. When I finally got it to work today I had 3 messages. One was from my uncle that lives in Tennessee. He doesn't text me unless it's my birthday or something like that. Well this text was not good news. He asked me to call his youngest son J and talk to him because he was depressed. When I got the opportunity to get in contact with J he didn't say anything to me out of the ordinary. Well I have gotten the whole story from my mother and aunt (J's mother). Needless to say it is not good. J has made some bad choices that could effect his whole future.
We can not share this news with my grandparents because it would worry them to death. They are the rocks of our family and I am very close to them. It is very hard for us to keep things from them because they are so wise. They are also people of deep faith and we go to them for spiritual guidance when we need it. I am asking for prayer for my family.
Friday, April 17, 2009
Age wise I am in the middle. Sha 31, Sham 30, Me 29, Sher 24, Shan 23. I worry about them like I am the oldest. They look to my mom as their savior, counselor, etc. Now I am not a perfect individual but I have managed to make pretty good choices. They(cousins) would say that is because I have a great mother and have spent a lot of time with my grandparents and other family members that supported me. This may well be the case. But I know that at some point you have to grow up and look at the things of your past and try and make something better for your future.
They also have at times called me boring or an old lady because I don't club hop, hang out with all kinds of different guys, smoke (you get the picture). But they want some of the peace I have. I want to say Duh. If you don't like how your life is going change your habits.
I realize that I have not been praying for them like I should. I know that is all I can do for them. I can not change how a person thinks or behaves or chooses to live their lives. I can not change how they think about me and how I live mine.
I am adding a new song, "I'll Trust You" by James Fortune. They play this song on the radio. I hope one of them will hear it and truelly listen to the words. Maybe they will figure out that everything can change in their lives with one decision.

Birdland many artist have played this song. I chose Miles Davis's version because he is from around my way. (East St. Louis) Plus when I danced, my group did a performance to this song. It was beautiful, classy, and powerful.
Brazilian Wedding is on one of Quincy Jones's cd's it was also featured in the Boyz in the Hood movie. The artist include Take 6. and Sarah Vaughn.
You Move Me by Cassandra Wilson words can not describe my love for this song. I love the pitch of her voice and the lyrics of this song. It is just Great! Plus it was featured in my favorite movie Love Jones.

Do you remember that crazy movie Halle Berry played in B.A.P.S.? You know the crazy hair styles she had. Well I had a woman in my office yesterday that reminded me of her. She had the big hair, crayon yellow blond coloring, and even open faced gold teeth. I kept peeking up at her hair. I tried not to but I couldn't help it. Before she left she handed me a business card. She happened to own a hair salon.HAHAHA. When she left my office I chuckled.
For those of you that don't know I wear my hair natural. So at the moment it is very curly and it gets frizzy. I guess she thought I might need her services. Some people just don't like the natural look. Maybe she thought I was admiring her hair.

1. The volunteer work that I am involved with is frustrating me. Lack of cooperation from all parties is really getting on my nerves. I don't have a lot of time to play with people. If I call to talk to you about your case and every time your answering machine comes on after the first ring and you don't return my call I will stop calling. I have made that decision. I will try one more time tomorrow and that is it. The position is like a second job. I makes me question if I really want a career in this aspect of the Social Services field.
2. I have a coworker that has a mental illness. With my degree I have studied these illnesses and I have a good understanding of them. But, my patience and compassion is getting thin. This particular person was having, I guess, a mini breakdown yesterday and my supervisor let her take a two hour nap. What in the H E double hockey sticks is going on? Now mind you the office was not at all busy but, I still have a problem with this. So you know what I did. I prayed not only for her but for me.
3. I think I am scared of living by myself. Whew.... that is a major confession. I seriously want to purchase a home within the next year or so. But I don't want a nice home with only one person living there. I do NOT believe in cohabitation so even if I were in a serious relationship that would not be an option. Pray for me ya'll. I am too old to be feeling like this.
Which leads me to this:
4.I Do Not Want To Be Single. I have told my friends and family that I was OK with this status but I am not. I am tired of being strong and independent. I know I will always be those things but I am ready to let my guard down a little.
So here is the deal. My posts to come will focus on some of these issues. I praised someone for expressing herself and I want to thank her for her post. It encouraged me to share some things that I just didn't want to admit.

"Love Man" By Otis Redding from Dirty Dancing. Loved That movie and loved the scene when this song is playing. Baby is carrying the watermelons to the " forbidden house" and Patrick Swayze (Hot) grabs her and teaches her the hip roll. She really thought she was doing something. (hahaha)
"Let's Hear It For the Boy" by Denise Williams from Footloose. This song is playing when Kevin Bacon and Sean Penn are dancing by the railroad tracks. Love that part of the movie. Just looked like they were having so much fun.
"What A Feeling" by Irene Cara from Flashdance. Oh now this movie I watched till my mother got tired of me watching it. She probably hid the tape. Of course this song is the finale song. I used to copy her moves. I had leg warmers and everything.
Maybe I'll find a picture and post.

On Sunday my cousin dropped her two kids off for a while so she could have some breathing time. It was a nice day so we took the kids outside. Marlyn is three and Kayla is one. They had a ball. The only thing we had for them to play with were bubbles. Here are a few pics of them enjoying themselves.

This got me to thinking, if I really have a call to adopt should it matter what sex the child is? If I was having a child naturally I really wouldn't have a choice. I don't know I really am flip flopping about this subject.
I believe that it is hard for me to wrap my head around them because of the financial commitment both require. I believe that I may be trying to do too much too fast. But I sometimes feel that time is passing me by and that I should be at a different point in my life by now. I know that God has a plan for my life, but I am human sometimes I have these feelings.

India Arie's "Strength, Courage, and Wisdom" is a song that I feel represents a lot of women. Ones I know, ones who read my blog and whose blogs I follow, and myself. Whether you are following a dream, completed one, or living one you have to embody these attributes.
Jill Scott's "My Love". I love her voice and love this song. It was hard for me to pick one song by her. When I am playing this song in my car I have to remember to open my eyes because I could cause an accident. I really sing my heart out. (lol)
Erykah Badu's "Didn't Ya Know". So people my not understand Erykah, may think she is a little out there. Sometimes I agree, but the woman has a wonderfully unique voice. This song came out when I first moved back to St. Louis. I played it over and over again. I love singing Badu songs. They have so many harmonies.
You will hear more from these ladies.

It is about children affected by the aids epidemic in South Africa. Either both parents, one parent, or caretakers have passed on from the disease. The kids stay at an orphanage and miraculously they all pretty much can sing. The plan is to make a CD and travel to America so they can raise money to build up the orphanage. I have posted the trailer below. I plan on purchasing the DVD and CD to support the cause.
(If you want to know some of the reasons let me know)

When I tell people that I am going to adopt these are the questions I get
2. Are you sure?
3. You don't want to have kids of your own?
4. Why not adopt from this country.
or the most popular comment
Wait till you get a husband.
Depending on what kind of mood I am in affects the answer they get.
I have decided on adoption because I feel I have been called to do so. When I was younger I asked my mother to adopt a child. It did not happen but in the back of mind I knew I would adopt when I became an adult. In 2005 I returned to school to complete my degree. I completely switched majors and decided on psychology and sociology. I told myself that I may not adopt right know but I could work in the field. I am very dedicated to getting more Afr Americans interested in domestic and international adoption. I started reading blogs. At this time it was very hard for me to find Afr Americans blogging about this. It kinda made me wonder if there were any out there. To my delight I found some(Praise Jesus). I hope they don't mind me looking at their blogs.
One of my personal dilemmas with adoption is that I would be a single mother right know. I would love to have a husband and have children or adopt children with him, but getting married is not guaranteed neither is having children naturally. I am not giving up but I am realistic. I want my child to have a father, but also think that there are so many orphans that one parent could be better than no parent. I don't know. I go back and forth on this all the time.
So I will stop here. This post could become a whole book. More to come later.

D'angelo, whom I can't wait till he comes out with new music. I don't care what his body looks like he is still alright with me. "Heaven Must Be Like This" is a remake from the live CD of his. This CD is hard to find but of course I have it.
Maxwell, who I would marry if I had the opportunity. Went to his concert a few months ago. I still have a euphoric feeling from that, but I do wish he would hurry up on the new CD. So I had a real hard time picking a song from him. "Lifetime" is a good one. You will be hearing more from him.
Lenny Kravitz, Hot musically and physically. I love the rock, soul, alternative vibe he has going on. "I Belong to You" is one of my favorite's from him. The words just get to me. You will hear a few more from him also.
Peace, Love, And Music

OK, it is about 3-5 inches of snow outside and I am missing the ATL right now. I started my college career at Clark Atlanta University. I can only remember it icing once the 3 years I was there. Cold or let me rephrase Cool weather I can deal with, but come on now snow.................. Give me a break. I grew up here in the Midwest where the weather changes in a blink of an eye but I don't like winter. Period.

I thought these were some great images. This is exactly what our new president needs. The second image was taken here in St.Louis last year at a convention. The first image is by an local artist Cbabi Bayoc here in St.Louis. I have included a link. Check him out. He is very talented.

My Song for today is "Killer Joe" by Quincy Jones. This man is a genius when it comes to music. When someone can write and produce jazz, r&b, gospel, hip hop, etc that is a true gift.
You may say "why choose this song it has few lyrics?" A good song sometimes has few lyrics but affects you the same as if it had a lot. This song makes me pat my feet, smile, rock from side to side, dance around. I just love this song.
Hope you enjoy it.

After a great morning of worship and the word, I get home about 1:00pm eat and lay down to take a nap. What happens? As soon as I get going good (sleep)the doorbell rings. It's family can't be to upset.
I gave up.

I remember hearing this song when I was little. I didn't understand the meaning until I was older and experienced life's many ups and downs. Hope you enjoy.

- Pray consistently
- Study the bible at least once a day
- Start my graduate program
- Research home ownership seriously
- Research Ethiopian adoption seriously
- Pay off some debt
- Get a new job
- Save more
These are a few of the goals that came to mind that I would like to accomplish this year. This is one of the reasons I started this blog. Pastor Kim last sunday said that if someone else knows your goals, dreams and aspirations that it is more likely you will stick to a plan to make sure achievement is met. I believe this to be true because people wont let you forget. She asked us to write down something that we wanted to change for the year 2009 on a piece of paper and give it to another member in the church so they could not only remind them of what they wrote but also pray for them. Thought it was a good idea. I didn't get a chance to participate because I was in the choir stand , but I think this blog entry will be just as good.
