Roman Scriptures

16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

The Value of the Pen & Paper

This picture is actually very old. Like extremely old. I want to say about 2-3 years ago, and quite frankly, I'm not too sure why I decided to pull this one up to depict this post... but I did. I feel like my world is spinning and I don't have time to stop and smell the roses, appreciate Mother Nature, and take a deep breath anymore. I have a huge decision to make pretty soon and I decided to whip out the old pen & paper and start documenting my thoughts again. I've always had a strong vibe with written expression whether it be poetry or journaling - it was something that made me more in tune with my inner self. But I always somehow seemed to drop one of my only good habits, and now I'm striving to start it again. For good. For as long as I can. For...ever (I hope). If it's not too personal, I'll post some of my journal entries on here. As candid and unedited as possible. But for now, it's just me, my pen, and paper.

Spring Semester

You know how things are always done better the second time around? Whether that is painting a picture or running a mile — the second time around always trumps the first.

Well, I feel like school can be the same way, as it is divided into two semesters. Fall semester is like your preparation and you’re more prone to making lackadaisical mistakes than opposed to now, because at the time, you are just coming back from a relaxed summer vacation. In this case, you’re coming from a 2-3 week break (if even that) where you still have some of that school knack in you. During the summer, especially if you are far from college like me (Arizona), you might even start to miss the people from school, so you get anxious as well to start school up again and reunite with your peers that helped ease your rollercoasting college days.. until of course, the reality of 10 page papers and 3 hour exams comes into play.

On another note, it’s easier to do something when there is a short-term reward in the end — that being summer. In the fall, you know you still have another semester to knock out before the ultimate vacation.

At any rate, spring semester officially begins tomorrow, Wednesday, January 27, 2010, and I feel unprepared for some reason. Yes I have my schedule, checked my alerts, holds, and any other hindrances that constantly appear on the student portal, and it seems that I have everything set, yet I still don’t feel ready. Thankfully the first week is a short one and I can use the weekend to fully recuperate and mentally prepare myself for another long 20 weeks or so.. or at least ’til spring break.

I don't know, Chris...

I mean seriously, Chris? Is this the guy you really should be posing with after your latest stunt? I think it's safe to say this isn't the greatest move for his image. Not that he would've turned down the opportunity to pose with this high end designer, but his PR should know better. Regardless, Chris posed with designer Jean Paul Gaultier in Paris after attending his boxing-inspired, warrior-themed runway show.

Worst Sports Anchor in the World

I first seen this on The Best Damn Sport Show's infamous countdowns for top Sports Bloopers and this ranked as #1 (go figure). I couldn't stop laughing and immediately took to the internet so I could watch this horrific scene over and over. I honestly couldn't imagine what was going through his head after the 50th screw up. Haha, he literally messed up EVERY single highlight. I was *DEAD* at the basketball highlights though! "REGGIE MILLER LOOKS GOOD!" Lol. Anywho, just enjoy and lemme know your thoughts! As if I can't already guess! Lol


Well, technically it's not really a website... or social networking... I don't think. Actually, I'm not sure. All I know is that it took about 60 seconds to create, as advertised, and how could you turn that down right? Lol.. I was first introduced to the site from the homie in high school back in Cali - Sean Blair. So simple, so effortless, so different from what else is out there. Another way to get your words out there and let people hear the answers to questions they're otherwise too embarrassed/afraid to ask. Lol. At any rate, I suggest you give it a try ;)

Playing the Race Card

Oh the infamous "race card" - the card that all black people seem to pull out when all else fails. The card that supposedly applies to any and all situations when you feel the slightest sense of unfairness or inequality. As funny as this is, I can't help but resort to its deeper meaning. As an African-American, are you guilty of assuming that everything in life is a result of racial profiling and stereotypes? You didn't get that job at Foot Locker? It's 'cause you're black. Didn't get the biggest scoop possible at the Chinese restaurant? It's 'cause you're black. Got bad credit? It's 'cause you're black -- no really! Lol, jk.. but in all seriousness, does the race card play out in your everyday thought processes when things don't go your way? Think about it.

I don't know how familiar you guys are with this show, but I remember hearing about it a while ago, watched a couple episodes when I was at a friend's house because she loved the show, but never really kept up with it since. Well by chance one morning, I happen to turn to channel 21 (abc family) thinking that it was TBN (the Christian channel) because that's the channel it is back home, and I forgot I was in Kansas for a second. Anywho, this show is on and I instantly remember how suspenseful it was. The next thing you know, 14 hours go by and I'm still watching this show. Luckily, this day-long marathon they had, caught me up on everything I've missed right before the season premiere. If you've never heard of this show, or are already a fan - tune in Monday at 8/7c on abcfamily. You'll be glad you did, I promise!

New Year's Resolution

To be patient with God and let His manifestation inspire others. "Those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." -Isaiah 40:31
