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!!
So for the ones that thinks they're not having a great holiday because they didn't received any gifts-gifts are nice but think about all these ppl who lives in the third world country who are hungry and doesn't get shytt!!..really think about it!!
anyway be grateful for what you have and don't have..

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.
