So I have been bad on posting this month. No particular reason why. I guess I didn't have much to say. So I will let you in on what is going in my life right now. Nothing much. The fall semester started this week so I am back in the swing of things for that. I had my behavioral management class yesterday. I think I am going to like it. It is an educational psychology course I am required to take. Since my undergrad was in psychology and sociology it is a good fit for me. Finally a class that I don't mind being in till 9:30 pm. I have a foundations class tonight. Probably will be boring but I guess I shouldn't prejudge.

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.........

What Day Is it?

Way Back Wednesday. This weeks selections take me back to when my friend's mother would drive us to school or the bus stop. It seemed like every morning one or both of these songs would come on the radio. Miss Jackie loved " Sittin on the Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding. I can remember like it was yesterday. The song would come on and she would say " Hey, my song." Bill Withers " Lovely Day" was like a theme song. My friend would always challenge me to hold the note at the end. I also thought that these songs went good with the new background. I wanted something that would remind you of sitting on the porch with a glass of lemonade with mint, or sitting on a dock with you toes lightly touching the water in your cute summer dress.
I know you get the picture.
Happy Reminiscing!

Who You Callin A B*^$#

Ok I hate to say it but I am addicted to Real Housewives of Atlanta. But I have a real problem with the language. Every other word is B this, B that. Maybe for some people this is okay, but not for me. I just don't get it. I don't call my friends or anybody else that. My have the same respect for me. I have never accepted that phrase to reference me.

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.

What I'm Using

So if you don't already know I have been wearing my hair natural for about 18 months. This is not the first time I have gone natural but I think it is the last. I just don't need the dry and itchy scalp anymore.Let me just say that just because you go natural does not mean that you do not have to maintain your hair. I still get my hair done every two weeks. I still get deep conditioners and ends clipped and etc. On the rare occasion I do shampoo my hair at home I use Rosemary Shampoo by Carol's Daughter. I have found it to be great in removing all product build up. After using this shampoo my hair feels extremely clean.

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.

Tagged: Ten Things About Me

1. I went to a performing arts middle school. My major was dance and my minor was piano.

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.

He Has A Heart

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
