My Favorite Songs

Five of my most favorite songs are "If I ain't got you" by Alicia Keys. Second "It's a beautiful day by U2. "Bomb in Gillead" by Karen Clark Sheard. Fourth, "Don't give up by Yolanda Adams. Lastly, I love you Jesus by Commonground Church Choir. I admire the song " If i ain't got you by Alicia Keys becasue first she is one of my favorite singers and this song to me symbolizes true love. I love the song by U2 because it represents how we should never take life for granted. The song by Karen Clark Sheard is especially one of my favorite songs because it tells about the goodness of the Lord, his wonderful works and his awesome power. The song by Yolanda Adams represents the determination of the human spirit to never give up and always keep hope and the song by Commonground reminds me of my love and appreciation for the Lord.

Coming to an End

Finally school is coming to an end and boy am I glad. I have never been so glad to see something come to an end in my life. Between school and working my life has been so hectic this whole semester, but thank God I made it through. Now that school is coming to an end I can have more time to do things that I enjoy. Did I mention crunch time is hear and all the final projects are due at one time. But I'm shure that I can get through it. So until then, chow!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter, and happy birthday to me. Well I can't say that I was all that happy but at least I lived to see another day. Today for my birthday and Easter I tried really hard to go to church but I didn't make it. So I just slept in and got some things done at my house then I went out to eat at this restaurant in Mexican Town. So hopefully I will have many more birthdays and Easters to come. God Bless

My Earth Day is Here

The time of year has come around for me to celebrate another year that I have lived to see, my birthday. To tell you the truth I didn't think that I would make it but I did. On April 16, 2006 which is Easter, I will be turning 19 years old. Boy that sounds old, but not really. This year I'm just taking it easy and looking for new beginnings to transpire. I'm so tired of worrying my life away that it's not funny. For my birthday I will probably spend most of the day with my family and the later part of my day with my friends and my boyfriend. Im not doing anything to adventurous just enjoying the day.

The End is Near

Finally the second semester is almost over and boy am I glad. Not only am I going to school full time but I also have two part- time jobs that are very demanding. But thanks be to God he makes a way for me to juggle both school and work together perfectly. I am also glad that school is coming to an end because I think I'm at my breaking point and I don't know how much more I could take juggling both at the same time. But for now everything is going smoothly and I'm learning to take life as it comes and deal with it from there.

No looking Back

As mentioned previously I just broke up with my boyfriend yesterday and I think that I'm going to let it stick this time. I'm so tired of going back and forth that it's rediculous. I just want to be comfortable in my own skin right now and think of myself as an individual rather than we right now. I need to know completely who I am as an individual then maybe I can hook up with someonelse. For right now I think this would be the best route for me to take right now. Becasue if you can't make your ownself happy than how can you do the same for someonelse.

Time to get it Together

Well the second semester of school is almost over and I have to say I couldn't be any happier to say so. I have been waiting for this moment since the first semester of school started. When school is over I plan on taking a job that offers not only benefits but full time hours which allows me to pay not only my bills but in addition some of my mothers which I would love to do. When I starat working this job full time it will allow me to do alot of things that I couldn't do with my present job. Hopefully when I gain this new job I can internally get myself together mentally and physically. I have been so off course that its not funny. I just broke up with my boyfriend yesterday and I think this time I'm going to let it stick until I feel like I'm ready to do otherwise. I want to be more active in my church serving the Lord more and I also want to pursue my singing career as much as possiblel. As soon as I get these things together I will be well off I'm sure.

Hate Radio Response

The selection that I read by Patricia Williams I found to be very interesting. I really agree with her when she said that media is a way for others to find out different things about other cultures. The selection was also very informative. I didn't know the statistics regarding African Americans and the unemployment rate. I also didn't know that 52% of people think that African Americans and Lations are less intelligent than whites. I believe that it is very disturbing to know that such radio personalities such as Howard Stern would make such racial comments about African Americans as he did. Its very disappointing to know that an individual has no respect for themselves nor others. Hopefully one day factors such as race or color with not be a roadblock to the success not only to a people but a nation. In order to move forward everyone from all walks of life need to be accepted.

Monday Morning

Tomorrow is Monday and I have to be at my new job for orientation which starts at 10:00a.m and guess what? I don't even know how to get there. I wrote the directions down when the lady gave them to me but I still don't have a clue how to get there. Hopefully and prayerfully I will find my way there and have a good time. So I'm hoping for the best and hope that alll goes well.

Sunday Morning

Well today is the blessed day and what a week it has been. I have been working feverishly and going to school and it's all together been wareing me out. I love going to school I sometimes enjoy going to work but lately I haven't. At Kmart as a cashier the people who have came through my line have been highly irritating. I turn off my light and tell them that I'm closed and they just keep coming to my line which makes me have to stay longer than my appropriated time. But I'm thankful for the fact that I have a job considering the fact that I live in the state that is the highest in unemployment. So I'm going to go to church have a nice time and go to work.

How will I end up?

This is a question that I frequently ask myself all the time. I wonder will I be successful in life or just a bump on the log all my life. Obviously I want to be tremendously successful but I cant count out the fact that there is room for failure and error. I worry so much about this topic that it's makes me have migrane headaches that make me feel like I'm going to die. Life is so unpredictable and I'm always trying to predict something and someone. So for now on I'm just going to let life happen and see how I will end up.

My vacation time off

Well spring break has come and gone and it's as if it never happened. All this week I have been doing nothing but working and trying to find new work. I am currently employed at K-mart as a cashier but I recently got hired at a nearby credit union called Telcom. I am so thankful to the Lord that he has let this opportunity to reach me. Not only will I start off at $9.50, but I also get benefits and great hours. But for the time being I'm going to try and work both jobs so that I can pay off some serious bills. Now that spring break is one day from being over I have to say that I'm greatful for the time that I have had off.

Finally Springbreak is here

I've been waiting for springbreak to come since school started. Springbreak is one of my favorite vacations from school. You get one whole week off from school and you get to visit cool places that you love to go to. One of the things that I am going to do over break is do all of my homework and catch up on much needed rest. I am also going to try and find another job if possible. The job that I currently have isn't my ideal job andI would enjoy and appreciate something more of my speed. I would have loved to go out of town for the break but it looks as if I'm going to stay here in Michigan and enjoy the lowsy weather. So until next time, chow!

In Need of Rest

Today is Friday, March 10, 2006 and I'm running off pure exhaustion. I have had about a total of 14 hrs of sleep this week and I've been working like crazy. At my job they have been asking me to work overtime and of course I said yes, but I'm so tired. Working overtime has kind of got me off schedule with my schoolwork but there's nothing that I can't handle. As long as I have a three point something on my transcript at the end of the semester I will be satisfied. Failure is my biggest fear and my grades is something that I don't want to decline or fail in. So with much prayer and confidence in the Lord I'm shure I'll turn out alright.
