Hello my lovely ppls, hope you all are having a wonderful eve, I am-with my mom and dad (sister is at work and brother is down in FL)..yup he lives there now for good, moved down there like aug. or so to start a new life and make his life better (happy for him)...weird cause last year like this we weren't talking (for something stupid)..but we officially started talking when he moved down there (weird) but again that's my blood and I love his stupid ass lol.
::clears throat::
I worked today and some of my customers which i haven't seen in a while brought me gifts -nothing cheap for real::smiles::...and don't want to get intpo details either lol
yup...I really didn't expect it for real (loves surprises).
and we had that secret santa thing at work...and we (our job) went ice skating at bryant park (sometimes it's good to do somethng different and with other peeps.
Although last Christmas was different for me but we all know things changed and life goes on and get used to the changes that god made in our lives....
But i am with wonderful parents..and I have my great health and what else could I possibly asked for again?...::pauses:: Mmmm!!

at least someone has the courage to do something!

I swear when I seen that I laughed so hard I almost peed on me lol, too funny.
Finally here we got someone who has a gut and the courage to do something to this man they call "the president of the United States Of America" lol, I swear something like that can only happen else where-can never happen in the US.
BAGHDAD (Dec. 14) - On an Iraq trip shrouded in secrecy and marred by dissent, President George W. Bush on Sunday hailed progress in the war that defines his presidency and got a size-10 reminder of his unpopularity when a man hurled two shoes at him during a news conference. An Iraqi journalist threw two shoes at President Bush during a news conference Sunday with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. The president was not hurt in the incident. (Dec. 14) "This is a farewell kiss, you dog!" shouted the protester in Arabic, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt. Bush ducked both shoes as they whizzed past his head and landed with a thud against the wall behind him. "It was a size 10," Bush joked later. The U.S. president visited the Iraqi capital just 37 days before he hands the war off to his successor, Barack Obama, who has pledged to end it. The president wanted to highlight a drop in violence in a nation still riven by ethnic strife and to celebrate a recent U.S.-Iraq security agreement, which calls for U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq by the end of 2011. "The war is not over," Bush said, adding that "it is decisively on it's way to being won." In many ways, the unannounced trip was a victory lap without a clear victory. Nearly 150,000 U.S. troops remain in Iraq fighting a war that is intensely disliked across the globe. More than 4,209 members of the U.S. military have died in the conflict, which has cost U.S. taxpayers $576 billion since it began five years and nine months ago. Link

the yes..and the not so yes for a holiday event..

Ok so we know it's the holidays right? But are you ready for it? I know I am....
We all are going to be invited to parties either at work, friends or families.
You're all excited about attending, got the perfect gift for the right person.
You know exactly what you're going to wear for the event.
You know the exact time, date, and place. you even request the next day off from work or make sure you'll be off the next day in case you get carried away with the martini from that party (hungover=near death). But what if for some reason you lost the invitation card, or you forgot the add, even can't find the perfect gift?..there are things that can prevent us from making a good impression on our friends, families, or in a professional environment (work, social clubs, etc.)..and this is where I will tell you how to at least try to make a good impression on yourself.............after all certain things can be prevented if you don't allow them to!
*Save the invitation cared (whether you're planing on going or not)-you never know.
*Call the person to let them know you'll be able to make it.
*Still call them even if you're unable to attend (it's just appropriate to do so).
*Show up on time .
*If you're going to be late , make sure you call in advance to inform you're going to be late.
*Don't go empty-handed. Bring something with you (a gift: a bottle of wine, cake, food but all depends on the event and where, even a card is a good look).
*Behave yourself at the event. Don't get drunk, even tipsy.
*Have fun but don't be a worm.
*Don't be the only one leaving the event last!
Now I think this is it, if for any reason you think I'm missing a couple of things or need to add a few more things comment and let me know-I'd appreciate all the feedbacks I can get! Link

How would you start?

It's exactly 12:49pm on Wednesday December 3rd of 2008, I am at work now (my regular day job) and about to start at 1pm and will get off at 9pm maybe close. It's going to be a hectic day (Christmas Tree lighting at Rockefeller Center) so you can imagine. And just going to be a busy end of the year because we all know it's the holiday season and we're all going to be busy with our lives and live it joyfully!! So what are your plans for this holiday season? We've got meetings, work, family, school, friends, parties to attend and would you plan them and how would you be ready for the holidays, how and when will you start planing? Have you done your shopping yet? Either way you have to start somewhere..why not get the gifts and get the cards ready with the list first and start from there and work your way down and see what needs to be done-maybe it'll be easier that way.
I have so much to do this holiday season: Parties, meetings, volunteering works (LifeBeat, Foodbank, City Harvest, have to go help at the shelters), work, blogging, and have to get my works ready for my soon be a career for singersroom ::smiling::
I remember last holiday, I was so in love with someone whom I thought felt the same way about me but in the end I was in it alone-I miss you..and I wished you'd never hurt me like you did I swear, I don't hate you. Anyway life is life and I have to make the best of it.
But last year I would be all hyped up and happy and already booked my flight and got all my things ready to go visit them ::smiling::
God only knows why things turned out the way it did after all I would not be the one to hurt anyone. So that I can be sure I can live with myself at peace.
But I am ready for the holidays! All I know is that this holiday would be different and I'm going to try to make the best of it without regrets!!

World AIDS Day
This year marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day. First observed in 1988, World AIDS Day was initiated by health ministers from around the world who called for a spirit of social tolerance and a greater awareness of HIV/AIDS on an international scale.
How many people are living with HIV? How many people have died of AIDs related causes?
According to the National AIDS Trust November 2007 statistics, there are:
*Around 2.5 million new cases of HIV in 2007
*2.1 million deaths from AIDS in 2007
*22.5 million people are living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa
No matter who you are we all have to play it safe and speak!
We can make a difference in this world if we choose to, it's a can be one another as brothers and sisters! We are one world, it doesn't matter of your race, background, gender, sexual orientation, even what your beliefs are-If you choose to live your life dangerously and not protect yourself and not want to open your eyes and speak, even knowing your status you'll fall.
World AIDS Day In Your Neighborhood
• Wear a red ribbon as a symbol of hope to work, school or clubs - or distribute red ribbons at community gatherings. • Organize a candlelight vigil at a community center or at a public park and invite local performers and speakers. • Decorate a World AIDS Day tree or bulletin board to display in a local library or courthouse in memory of those who have died of AIDS. • Write a letter or editorial to your local newspaper urging news coverage of World AIDS Day. • Set up a table or booth at an existing community event to display HIV/AIDS exhibits, posters, flyers, or brochures. • Send an World AIDS Day e-card to friends and family urging their support for AIDS awareness.
World AIDS Day At Work
• Ask your employer to help establish December 1 as a day to address the issue of HIV/AIDS in your workplace • Educate employees about the prevention of HIV/AIDS: display posters, flyers, brochures, invite guest speakers, provide information through employee newsletters, E-mail messages and Web pages. • Have your company sponsor community events by donating products to local HIV/AIDS programs, organize an AIDS fundraising events (run, walk, bike) or set up a display in the office lobby. • Distribute World AIDS Day ribbons, posters, flyers or brochures in company mailboxes, cafeterias or break rooms. • Retail businesses: place a World AIDS Day poster in your window, at checkout counters or community bulletin board.

Very Thankful!

I thank GOD for all he has done for me, my family and friends......
I thank GOD for protecting me and my family from danger or getting hurt by anything and anyone.....
I thank GOD for giving us (family and friends) strength and courage to wake up everyday and continue our journey through life and to continue having faith in him..
I thank GOD for helping me through my daily stress at work and trying to keep the bad spirit and negativeness away from me....
I thank GOD for my job and my promotion...
I thank GOD for my family and my friends he brought into my life...
I thank GOD for getting rid of the phony people I had in my life, that was holding me back....
Thank you GOD for loving me for me even though I have sin and done wrong..
Thank you GOD for still accepting me even though I continue to sin...
Thank you GOD for believing in me and knows that I am trying my best to be a better person to those around me and especially to my parents..

What's wrong with these celebrities?

One thing I don't understand, why does some artists have to be so complicated about things and gotta make things extra just because they have money and popular and noone would not say or have certain opinions about them..
We all know everybody are different and maybe some choses to be different and not have to be like others, but at the same time some people chose to be so different that it's rediculous...
When I first heard the new beyonce "single ladies" I thought it was stupid...I don't think this song nor the video made sense at all. I know she's a great artist and she's beautiful, and talented but this one and "if I were a boy"? is that it?..I was like "what the hell?" I was confused-didn't Ciara made a song (if I was a boy) or something like that before? I don't know. Am I the only one that feels like that or what? AND BEFORE YOU START ASSUMING THINGS..I AM NOT JEALOUS OR "HATIN'" ON HER OR ANYONE. I just think her two last songs doesn't make sense at all. Like I said she is a wonderful artist but come on now beyonce!
By the way what's up with the "Sasha Fierce" anyway?
I was reading something on spinner about her and I totally agree-what's up with her "alter-ego" anyway? lol..what, everyone has an 'alter-ego now? Smhh..
Just read on..
Alter-Egomaniacs: Singers and Their Split Personalities
Why do so many singers adopt a second persona, either onstage or in real life? It could be they just can't cope with being their usual selves sometimes -- or, more likely, it's that they're overflowing with more talent than it's fair for just one individual to possess.
Beyoncé aka Sasha Fierce
Beyoncé's new double album, 'I Am ... Sasha Fierce,' is the work of two artists. On one side, the refined megastar we all know simply as Beyoncé. On the other, a brash, sexy newcomer named, you guessed it, Sasha Fierce. Surprise -- they're the same person! As Beyoncé puts it, "Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken, more glamorous side that comes out ... when I'm on the stage"

My L word..

I am back. Seems like I haven't been on here in a while I just been so busy lately with work and when I get off or off I rather nap or sleep and read...So excuse me if I'm not about internet or myspace and so on (there are more important things)..and that's my opinion anyway ::shrugs::
But I just have to post this on my blog....
Does anyone ever heard of that show (HBO) call "the L word"? Well the L word is one of my favorite shows on HBO. I am sure somewhere or you must have heard it from someone or maybe you happened to flipped to HBO and seen a preview of the show. Well it is a lesbian show which anyone who just like drama, chaos, and love beautiful ppl watches it.
Well the L word is full of it-lovers, cheaters (a lot), liars, losers, sisters, best friends that happens to know one another. they all had a little bit of each other ehhh....but all are best friends in some ways.
and I am so excited for season sixth to come out (Jan. 9th) unfortunately would be their last season :(
anyway feel free to click on the link that's on the bottom of this page and take a tour on their page...enjoy the visit ::smiles::
I would first like to introduce Jennifer Beals as Bette Porter: She is such a great actress, and I know I don't have to mention how beautiful she is as well as talented. She is a mother, a lover and unfortunately a cheater....very successful and powerful. And she is beautiful in person (all are). Helena Peabody played by Rachel Shelley: Beautiful, intelligent. She is a mother, a lover, a cheater, a fighter and a convict lol....she was also known to prey over Tina (Bette's wife)....yeah season six (last and short season would definetaly include more casts members... there goes the beautiful, talented, gorgeous, sophisticated, sultry women that we all would love to be around of and socialized with....Bette,Shane, alice, Kit, Tina, Dana, and Jenny.....go feminists lol....we make the world a better place ::watching out so I won't get my head chopped by anyone who takes offense to it..
and there goes me right between Alice and Kit lol....
Now I would love for you to take a look at each character and see how beautiful each and everyone of them are :) aren't they lovely....
now from bottom left:
Erin daniels played as Dana Fairbanks, Leisha Haileyas as Alice pieszecki, Jennifer Beals as Bette Porter, Katherine Moennig as Shane McCutcheon.....
now top left:
Sarah Shahi played as Carmen de la Pica Morales, Mia Kirshner as Jenny Schecter, Laurel Holloman as Tina Kennard, Rachel Shelley as Helena Peabody, Pam Grier as Kit Porter. So after all I will keep an eye on this show and maybe and just maybe the producer might re-think of coming out with a seventh season ::smiles::

My friends thinks I'm weird for loving an artist so much, well I wouldn't call it weird or I'm a stalker, or even obsessed-I'm sure there's one of you out there that has a favorite artist that you love so much and knows each and every song (lyrics)..:::one eyebrow raises::
But she is lovely, beautiful, talented, intelligent and beautiful from head to toe, inside and out :)

just something I did when I was in school....enjoy..

This is something I wrote in my Creative Thinking class when I was in school last year....or two years before that (I think) lol..but anyways I just thought I'd share it with you lovely bloggers and non-bloggers... I'm not into poetries or into words but it was my first Haiku...oh by the way if you don't know what a Haiku is.. by the way it's Haiku (HI-coo).. Haiku is a poetic form and a type of poetry from the Japanese culture. Haiku combines form, content, and language in a meaningful, yet compact form. Haiku poets, which you will soon be, write about everyday things. Many themes include nature, feelings, or experiences. Usually they use simple words and grammar. The most common form for Haiku is three short lines. The first line usually contains five (5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line contains five (5) syllables. Haiku doesn't rhyme. A Haiku must "paint" a mental image in the reader's mind. This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and imagery in the reader's mind in ONLY 17 syllables over just three (3) lines of poetry! Check out some Haiku at Haiku Salon (see Lesson 2 for the link). ************************************************************************************ * *

I set my time yet,
I still woke up late for school
I got to school early
It’s nice outside
Yet it’s a little too cool
I like that weather
You really hurt me
I really liked you
I do believe life goes on
I miss you a lot
But do you miss me?
I wish you were here right now

I live in Brooklyn
Though I’m a city person
I love the city
The Homeless man there
He’s homeless but has knowledge
There’s still hope for him
Although I can’t see
But I can hear pretty well
She’s still a smart girl
Right now I’m throbbing
Can I take care of it now?
When class is over
That feels so good
Please continue loving me
Ouch! That really hurts!
I was once happy
Until you walked away, gone
But today is a new day
Please come back to me
Guess what? I never loved you
Sorry I missed you
Don’t stop loving me!
No! Yes! Please don’t stop right there
I missed everything
She was once loved
She feels so lonely
The world turns their back on her
Sitting in this class
Thinking of you and misses you
Should I ask the same?
These beautiful Haiku are by Valerie Pierre-Louis

it's so shouldn't be like that but these formats are killing me...bear with me.

but every 3 lines has a space..

not sure if i'm the only one...

ok so i feel like i'm alone here, sitting at my friend's house and listening jill scott and browing around her site (hey her songs helps a great deal), and wondering about my life and how much i can improved it, there are things i need to work on and things i can just say f**** it to and let go-but it's not so easy to let go of certain bad habits and faults ::shrugs:: wait.... a little writers block set in-excuse me just a little drained... ::::pause:: ::clears throat::
like i was saying i plan on improving my life for the better...start doing things i've never done (nothing negative though). but things like going back to school and start on my internship ASAP, get my license (who knows lol), and hopefully get my own place (better)...
i feel very blah, have this blah but very strong.
long week of work then went out of town to visit friends...
lets just leave it at that ok.......:::looking around::
::wipin' one tear away::
don't you ever feel so lost like you're all alone on this planet with no one there for you?
i've lost great ppl in my life, some were phony and some were too good to lose but i just had to let go and move on with my life...
it's frustrating to know you love someone and care about them but they don't see it..they..they tend to look the other way and make bad choices,,,,,
but lets leave it at that ::walking away::
