Good News…

I got accepted to California University of Pennsylvania’s MBA Program… I’m pretty excited about it… but at the same time… it just motivated me to get on applying for Carlow…. Don’t get me wrong… I love the U… Its my yard… where I learned a lot about myself… where I met my love… where I crossed the Illustrious Sorority that is Alpha Kappa Alpha, and where I will be graduating from in May…

But Let’s get real… I’m ready to work, and venture out, get away from the norm and craziness that is CALU!!! So… although I am very happy to have CalU as a safety net school, in case I don’t get to Carlow’s Fraud and Forensics program… I’m more pumped to do what I have to do to get into Carlow…

We’ll see what happens….

Death to Photoshopped Profile Pics!!

This is something I simply do not understand…. What is the purpose of photoshopping yourself? The people who DO know you know that you don’t look like that, and you’re lying to the people who DON’T know you. I’d rather see a pic of a puppy in ur twitcon than a lie! Besides, Photoshop is kinda on the expensive side… you can spend that on some proactive and make-up. =)

Funny for the day….

In a hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, patients always died in the same bed, on Sunday morning, at about 11:00 am, regardless of their medical condition. This puzzled the doctors, and some even thought it had something to do with the super natural. No one could solve the mystery as to why the deaths occurred around 11:00 AM Sunday, so a worldwide team of experts were assembled to investigate the cause of the incidents. The next Sunday morning, a few minutes before 11:00 AM, all of the doctors and nurses nervously waited outside the ward to see for themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden crosses, prayer books, and other holy objects to ward off the evil spirits. Just when the clock struck 11:00, Pookie Johnson, the part-time Sunday sweeper, entered the ward and unplugged the life support system so he could use the vacuum cleaner.

Shoutout to Love

This past year’s theme, I feel, has been love. About loving your family (and my LSs), about God’s love and how I should apply it, and what love really is about. I’ve also come to accept that even though you should love everyone, sometimes you gotta love them at a distance… they’ll come back for it when they need it. So, as I am embarking on another year as an Alpha Kappa Alpha woman, I want to give a shout out to love… its done wonders for me. <3

R&R - My metaphor

No… not rest and relaxation….. Relationships and Rollercoasters. Weird metaphor right?? Well here’s my thoughts. Relationships are like Rollercoasters… when you look at the rollercoaster it either looks scary, fun, or lame. Then you make the choice, do I stay in line and wait for this, do i walk away from it? You check out the requirements, the line length (if its short [easy], anyone could ride it, quickly…) see if there are loops and big hills, check to see how fast it goes… and you decide from there. The whole time ur waiting in line ur thinking either “why did i get in this line, i know dis is gon be butt” “I cant wait to get on” or “i’m scared…. should I back out now?” finally, if you’ve stayed in thus far, you get on the ride…. your heart is racing, you’re excited, scared, all in one. And then you take off (this is the point where “talking” and getting to know one another is thru) You start up the hill, slowly, anticipating what’s to come, then you make it to the top…. the hills represent the ups and downs that you may go thru, the loops may be the arguments and “hoops” you’ve had to go thru to keep your relationship going (notice how a lot of rides get stuck on the loop-de-loop?) the twists and turns are the emotions, twisting and turning….. then finally at the end, you come to a screeching hault at the finish… And then you decide… was it worth it?
