I must say Christmas was fun even though Aunt Dot out of all aunts came that day. :( That sucks! The food was amazing as always. I wasn't expecting a lot of gifts but I had more joy of seeing my parents open their gifts. With the look on their face was priceless. That night we had a lil get together. Everybody that was close to us was there...well almost everybody. Oh & I got my first sew in! Drinks was flowing, food, Taboo, Uno...it was a night to remember. Now lets see about New Years Eve...
There wasn't anything I "must have" this time around. Idk, I guess you can say I'm content. Even though I don't have anything I really really want...I still decided to make a christmas list. Well just because and plus I know people are gonna ask me. lol It's not a lot though.
My Graduation date is set. It's been almost four years and I will be finally walking across the stage. The more I think about it, the more nerve racking I get. Yes, I'm happy but then my mind starts wondering to the point where I'm like, "Ok...what's next?" Then there's another 1 or 2 years of nursing/ P.A school but I still don't know where exactly I'm going to do my studies at. There's still time for me to decide though. Four years went by so quick, hopefully I'll have something to show for it.
Lately I've been looking at pictures of bedroom and other rooms. There's so many things that you can do with a room. I'm just waiting for the day where i can design my house. Every room will have a different feel to it.
I'm more of a modern but victorian elegant style mix with it.

I LOVE the feel of this room, especially the chandelier
I feel that this summer will begin the new me. So far it has started out well, with just a couple road bumps here and there. I have a potential job for the summer and I'm one of the Vice President for my organization. Focusing on myself and getting closer to my goals is the thing. I just want to prove, no I AM, going to prove that I'm going somewhere. Mainly the people that said my goals are too high or "my plane isn't taking off." I just smile in their face and laugh on the inside. It's motivation, that is all.
He's spring 2010 collection was very unique and creative. Something different and out of the box. When i firist saw the shoes, I was in awe!
When i heard he came out with a cheaper version of this collection for payless, I almost had a heart attack! I went on the payless site to look for the shoes, it wasn't there. So I did some searching online for the shoes but it wasn't a happy ending. I found the shoes, but it wasn't what i expected. Idk why but I thought his collection for payless will be almost an exact replica of his high end collection. Well i was wrong and disappointed. Payless Version
I only put heat to my hair prob like twice a month, and I plan to keep it like that. Lately I've been wanting to make my hair curly, but i didn't want to put any heat on it. So I went to youtube and start searching and found out about bantu knots.
It's curls without heat. At first it can be hard, but the more times you try. The easier it becomes.
In these pictures I did medium knots & about 8 of them.
The bantu knots overnight. & Taking the bantu knots out Finish Product
I've seen the preview months ago, and somehow my attention was brought back to it. The movie came out in late 2009 and won many awards in the film festival. I have yet to see it but I'm determine to watch it sometime next week. What caught my attention is that it's a true story that happen in South Africa
"SKIN is one of the most moving stories to emerge from apartheid South Africa: Sandra Laing is a black child born in the 1950s to white Afrikaners, unaware of their black ancestry. Her parents are rural shopkeepers serving the local black community, who lovingly bring her up as their ‘white’ little girl. But at the age of ten, Sandra is driven out of white society. The film follows Sandra’s thirty-year journey from rejection to acceptance, betrayal to reconciliation, as she struggles to define her place in a changing world - and triumphs against all odds."
I think one of the main reasons why I wasn't posting was due to the fact that i wasn't finish with the layout. I wanted to have a layout before i fully go into blogging. Idk why, but that's just me. Well months later, i finally finish the layout! & I love it!
I know thats a long time from now, but it's time to get ready. People say being 21 is totally different from 20, the year when you really become an adult. I say 21 is the year to find yourself & to see who you really are. Have fun, live life, but yet have the desire to obtain the goals you set. I really don't know what i'm gonna do for my 21st. All i know is that it's going to be BIG! Las Vegas? naw...i'm going to wait till my bestie turns 21 so we can enjoy together. Paris? London? Somewhere in South America? maybe. I love the fact that my b-day is almost always on labor day weekend. I'm ready.
Have you ever felt like your to the point where you can't it anymore? Whether if it's school, work, family or just relationships. Your mind is always sprinting as if its trying to win the race, but it's always something that make it loose it momentum. No matter what you do, you still at point A. No matter how much you strive for point B. As much as you scream, no one hears you. That's how i feel. Emotionally drained, weak. Weakest point that i have ever been. But i still hope though, that's on thing that never left my side. You can say it's my pride that never let me give up, or stand my ground. I'm a prideful person, thanks to my family. I just know God would never put me in a position that i can't handle. It's a lesson he's trying to teach that i soon will get the answer to. This won't be forever. I'm falling & I can get up.
I think they are cute! Haven't tried them yet but hopefully i will soon. What i like about it is that u can change the lollipop heads when you are finish with it. Instead of just throwing the whole thing away.
They run about $22-$25 for one but you keep the stick and buy a 3 pack of lollipop head for about $12. sugarfactory.com - place where u can order them from.
This word can make you or break you. It can give you the sweetest feeling ever but at the same time it can bring you to the lowest of the lows. Say it at your own risk, only if you truly mean it. So many people now a days play around with this word to the point where it don't have any meaning to it anymore. Honestly this word is not to be played with. I guess you can say for the past 2 years, I know whats real and what not. Been there, done that. Hurt, pain, happiness....it all comes with the terriortory. But I can i've been happy for the most part and would never regret anything. It is what it is.
Do you think there's different types of love? Like levels or degrees of love? You can love someone differently than someone else. Or is it all the same?
