REPOST OF OLD BLOG 5/03/2006

Why is.....?
Current mood: aggravated
Why is ignorance so bliss for some people? Are we, as African- Americans, so willing to accept limit knowledge? Do we think that if we dont know better we wont/cant do better? Well ignorance is not bliss. And the more you allow urself to wallow in stupidty, the more we will continue to miss out on our abilites to excell. So do me a favor, strive for knowledge, strive for excellance, and loose the stupidty. Everything you say and do is not funny to everyone. Because your level of ignorance wont be the same as everyone else you encounter

REPOST OF OLD BLOG 5/02/06

He is my strength and my provider. Without him I would be nothing. Without him I am nothing. Without him I have nothing, and will never have anything. Without him I am lost. Without him I am shameful. Without him I would not be the wonderful person that I am. I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Do you know him? If you don't Im telling you that you should get to know him. The Lord is my rock and my salvation, whom shall I fear? I know for sure I wouldnt be so "super" without the mercy of God. I just want to testify, that all that know me and all my "myspace friends" will have some insight into my life, and how I came to be the person that I am today. I dont by any means claim to be the perfect person. I sin and have flaws just like everyone else, but I know where my strength lies. It is not in the love of a companion, the love of my appearance, the grades I make in school, or in the relationships I have with my peers. None of these things dictate my future. It is when I love the Lord, I love myself, and I am able to love everyone else around me. It is in this order and in no other way, I dont love everyone else before myself (e.g. Accepting the opinons of others before listening to myself). I dont love myself before the Lord (e.g. Leaning into my own understanding and not stepping out on faith)

Anyway, I wrote this blog because I am thankful and truly blessed to end my sophomore year of college, and to start my summer with a paid internship, that will definitely help my major in the long run. Just wanted to share in hopes that someone else may realize why they may feel lost or unhappy. I challenge you to recognize your strength, because I definitely recognize mine! ~SUPERWOMAN~

RE-POST OF AN OLD BLOG 2/28/2006

Where is the love? Not the love from your partner or your momma, but the love for yourself. Lately i have been insipired to post this blog. (and no not by anyone person in particular). Mostly by myself. We can not love or be loved properly, until we first love ourselves. If you look at yourself and decide u dont like what you see, do u think anyone else will? Yea, maybe someone will eventually love you, but not to the highest degree in which u can actually can be loved. If your lookin for that special someone, searching for acceptance, or just trying to discover who u really are. Do some self examination. Decide what you like or dont like about yourself. Can those things be changed, or are they the things that make you unique. Embrace yourself, Be you, because no one else can occupy the space that u have. So make the best of it, live life to the fullest, let no one dictate what u can and can not do, how u should and should not look, and what u will or will not accomplish!! No matter, the circumstance know that its u, living your life so do u, and POP YO COLLAR REGARDLESS, because damn it, its your shirt. LOL

FREEDOM of MY speech

This isn't my first time blogging........

Ive always had a passion for writing, usually my own intimate thoughts, in my own intimate diary ( A characteristic I admired in Doug Funnie, except he had a "journal"). I have a few blogs on myspace that I will re-post on here just for the hell of it.

Lately, I've been toying with the idea of writing a book....a memoir/self-help/autobiography/motivational/do-it-yourself type thing. However, my mind is so sporadic & I'm just a tad bit impatient, so I decided blogging would probably be a better idea. As a LEO, I like to talk but ONLY WHEN NECESSARY, and I like to amuse other people (entertain if you will), and that is how for the most part I like to gain attention, I suppose. Supposedly Leos like attention, but Ive never been one to intentionally run for the spotlight, it just happens to follow me *shrugs*.

I have an interest in Law & Public policy, (i.e. the title of this blog). I am currently in limbo between post undergrad and LAW SCHOOL ( I claim it). However, sometimes things are not as easy as we would like them to be. Sometimes the cards are just not in our favor. That does not mean you give up and you give in, it just means you go harder. In the end you appreciate it more. STORY of MY life.

I have always worked hard for what I wanted in life. As the child of a single parent home, the silver spoon was far from the table, but I ALWAYS had a decent spoon. You feel me? So in essence, IF I SAW IT & I WANTED IT, I GOT IT!! Maybe not in the typical way or the way in which one would first think to obtain an obstacle, none the less, I always got what I wanted. :) With that said, we are currently in the midst of trying times. As a recent college graduate, life right now is not what I imagined when I entered the gates of Spelman College (wow 5 years ago).

Therefore the purpose of my blog spot will typically be to spark the enthusiasm of young adults. How do we feel right now? Are we where we imagined we would be? Are we on the track to be where we imagined we would be at this time in our lives? Have we fallen into the rotations of the "workforce" (exactly where we decided we wouldn't end up for those who decided to pursue higher education) Do we feel there is something or some route out there better than where we are now? What will we do to change our current circumstances if needed? Do we need to change our circumstances or are we happy, content, or exactly where we envisioned we would be? Is life as an adult all we imagined it would be? If not or if so, what are we doing to help our younger generation envision something even better? Lets share our stories, or success and our failures, and have a few laughs while we're at it. My passion for writing is drawn in the believe that when you write your thoughts, dreams, and aspirations down to physical view, you subconciously train your mine to achieve them.

Just a little taste of where I am going......More to come......

What do you think?

Peace. Love. Laugh. Give....
