"Sisters, in this period of unprecedented challenges, we can focus on the negative or we can embrace the positive. We can live in fear and worry, or we can use this time to celebrate our progress, find the lesson and the opportunity in our circumstances, refocus on our purpose, and nurture the precious gift of life. We can look outside ourselves for answers, but we must also reach inside and find that reservoir of strength that has always sustained and moved us forward as a people" - Angela Burt-Murray

Due to our countries current economic woes, murder-suicide rates seem to be doubling. The most touching was the recent case out in CA where a husband & wife decided in lieu of burdening anyone with the responsibility of taking care of their 5 kids and relying on others to assist them in caring for their family, to take their own lives as well as their children. Both parents were recently laid off from their medical technician positions at the hospital which they were employed. Another family in OH may have faced the same fate when the husband was suffering from what officials are stating stress related issues due to his recent job loss. However, in this case, the husband had recently regained employment with his former employer over the last three weeks.

"You are friendly, humorous and full of energy. You are open-minded and do not care for minor details. Your weak point is your hot temper. Your Love, You are willing to start off in one-sided love affairs because you strongly believe that you will eventually win his/her heart. On the other hand, once you are together, you always want to do things your way, which is often the fire starter. You usually run in and out of love quickly."
Now ain't that some shit!! LOL, LOL

Obsessed is a new thriller due out this spring starring my chocolate boo, Idris Elba (ooooh how I love this man, LOL), Beyonce and Ali larter who I think is also a great actress. Beyonce has stepped her acting game up with her recent hit, Cadaillac Records. However, based on what I've seen in this trailer, I think this movie could also be another hit for Mrs. Carter. I'll definitely be checking this one out...Mainly for my chocolate honey dip Idris, hahahahahaha.
Check out the trailer

"If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress"
- Barack Obama
Todays train ride home was just long for no damn reason. However, it perked up as I was approaching my stop. A young lady standing began to lose her balance and it appeared to me she felt her phone call was to important to use common sense and hold on to prevent her from falling!! Long & behold who's yelling OMG & falls right on top of the women sitting behind her??? Yep, "Miss Hello Can You Hear" me now.
I tried holding it in but it was toooo damn funny not to laugh. You would've thought by now she'd gotten the hint & hold off all calls till she was off the train....Noooo not her, as soon as she got back up, she was back to her in progress phone call. SMH, I hope her call was worth her close encounter to an evening ass whopping!!!

Ok so I will openly admit I was NOT & I'm still not really feeling Beyonce's latest album (Pls forgive me loyal Bey fans, LOL). However, Halo is thus far my FAVORITE song on the album and I'm loving the concept of the video.....Hmmmmm I wonder if Michael Ealy co-starring has anything to do with my love for the video, LOL. The words are deep and many of us can relate.

position with only a few short classes =/. A friend of mines suggested taking Pole Dancing lessons and its something I'm actually interested in. Since a few friends & I are planning on adhering to a serious work out plan this year, we've decided to incorporate a few classes within the normal work out plan mix. However, I'm honestly more interested in mastering the art of Pole Dancing. After viewing some videos on Youtube, I've found this is a serious, skilled, seductive form of art!! I can be a little clumsy as well as shy at times but I've decided to put that behind me and follow through with my plans.
Maybe I'll even post some pics of me making a fool out of myself while sliding down the pole, LOL, LOL.

All I Need Feat. Jadakiss - Sterling Simms
While passing the time on my loooooooong commute home, I came across this interesting item in my Lucky magazine. Wode by Boudicca was created with the same affects as the DISAPPEARING INK PENS (you remember those stupid things, LOL, LOL) and is currently sold at Barneys for $130. One spray of this item and your covered in blue ink but enjoy it while it last because the color fades away as soon as it makes contact with your clothes. I'm a little tempted to purchase this item.....I think I'll go to Barneys first and see how true this neon blue ink disappears before making this pricey purchase, LOL.
I'm hoping my room comes out the way I want it to be....I'm soooo not good in the home decorating department (I know, I sucksss major). Once its done, hopefully sooner than later, I will post pics of the final outcome....PRAY FOR ME PEOPLE, LOL, LOL

Since were already done with the first week of the new year, it only seemed fitting to sit down & compose a letter to properly introduce myself to my new friend, 2009. I have an overwhelming feeling this year will be full of pure positivity and I can't wait to see what my new companion has in store for me. I felt if I provided you with a brief background on what goals I've set forth for myself, it will help guide us down the right path while on this journey together.
2009, we need to really focus on making ME time for myself this year. No moreputting others first and much, much more putting ME first!! If a mental break from the real world is needed, I'm just taking it. No more of the usual, "if I'm not at work this may not be completed, why am I laying here when I could be doing laundry, I should keep mini me home instead of sending him off for the weekend" kind of thinking. Basically I just WON'T be thinking when it comes to the matter of ME, just DOING.
Procrastination, something I can do damn well, will no longer play a factor in completing my Master's. Even though I love my current job, I feel....Noooooo, I know I could be doing much, much more with my life professionally so I will resume working on my Masters in Business Administration minoring in Human Resource Management!!!
Well 2009, this is my rundown. I know we can handle whatever comes our way so I'm not even stressed. My support system is beyond phenemonal and with them, I can damn near accomplish anything I set my mind to!!

Ok so anyone who knows me, knows I have a LOVE for bags!! All kinds of bags.... funky, retro, bright colored, any bag that's worthy of my jaw dropping, I LOVE IT!!! However, my main preference is of course, LARGE BAGS (definitely don't have enough junk to fill them up with, but who caresssss??? LOL). As most of you know, Rihanna has been hand picked to become the spokesperson for Gucci and what better collection to have her star in (this pic is absolutely stunning). Since 2005 Gucci has partnered with UNICEF to help support programs for orphans and children affected with HIV/AIDS in Africa. From the month of November till January 31st, Gucci will donate 25% of all sales generated from any item purchased from the Tattoo Heart Collection. Check their site out if your down for supporting a worthy cause and interested in a hot bag!!!
