Happy Turkey Day!!!

So I didn't eat toooo much today. But I'm very lazy right now. So this entry will be short and sweet. So R Kelly is on a remix to "If I Were A Boy" w/ Beyonce. I have yet to form my opinion on this mix. What do you think?

Being a part of history...

So on Nov. 4th I was a part of history. Going out at 4:45am and standing in line until 6:15 to cast my vote for the US's first Black president. And now, on Jan 20, 2009, I will be a part of another historical moment. I will be attending the Inauguration. :-)

What in the World??

Yes that title is a perfect description of my mind state right now. I have situations and persons of my past that have resurfaced and it has me QUITE confused. It's like a certain time period of my life NEVER existed. Like the hands of time have been totally turned back. Some I thought I'd never hear from again for one reason or another. Some situations I thought were totally a WRAP. Yet, they have shown back up as if the disappearing acts, drama, and conclusions never took place!!?!?! So yea, What in the world!!??!

It's cold as ever here in V-A. Snow flurries already. This is crazy. Just the other week it was like 79 degrees. What in the world!??!

So this guy commits suicide on live streaming video on the site Justin.TV. People actually were hyping him up to do this. (see video below)


I don't know.... *ish* is just kinda crazy right now!

Another blog of randomness

So I'm sitting here and have absolutely no kind of set topic to discuss on this blog. I have been pretty much relaxing the past few days. Partly my choice, partly due to the usual...people not doing what they say they are going to do. I don't even care no more, I look at it as the same ol same ol and move on. Something ALWAYS comes up or there is always some b.s. story behind a cancellation. I'm beyond that. No time for it. *brushes right shoulder off* I used my Friday night to not "drop it like it's hot", but to finish up a book I've been trying to read for about 2 weeks now. I got some much needed rest and "me" time. Time to relax, relate, and release.

I love this time of the year. The holidays..NOPE...the end of the year, when I have so much vacation time that I'm like always off from work. I'm carrying over 40 hours and some sick time, yet I'm still going to be off at least one day a week for the remainder of 2008. I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE it! I really ain't pressed on Thanksgiving, because my mother works. So it's usually just another day off at the crib for me. I get a few invites here and there, but it's usually from people I'd rather not be around but for soooo long. *blah* I don't have a clue what I want for Christmas. People keep asking for some sort of idea and I can't help them. I don't even really have anything I'm dying for (except a new Iverson Pistons Jersey..since it's time to switch the jersey game up). *wink wink* I guess I'm sort of a scrooge. I'm more hyped for my birthday, which is still very much in planning stage. People are either LYING or trying to charge a sister way too much for their spots. So it's a few more options to check on. I'm about to say bump a party and take a trip (outta V-A) or something or just go AWAY from Richmond. DECISIONS, DECISIONS!!!

I'm still very ecstatic about Obama's win! It felt so good to witness the historical moment. Now everyone is talking about going to the Inauguration. I have different opinions about making that trip. I want to go, but in the back of my head, something tells me...NOT TO GO! My instincts be killing me.

Okay....so my train of thought just came to screeching halt and I don't know where else I was trying to go with this post...so I guess that'll do for today. Back to work tomorrow and I'm NOT feeling it. I can already tell it's gonna be a lame day.

No News = Good News

The title of this blog is something one of my doctors always tells me when I visit him. He says that if I do NOT hear from him, then that means everything is okay. Sometimes that is comforting and sometimes it leaves me wondering if I missed his call, did he forget to call, do I need to call myself to see how everything turned out!?!? But that isn't the real purpose of this blog. The true purpose is to reflect on life and relationships and keeping those close to you...CLOSE TO YOU. People who REALLY know me (who are few and far between), know my story. They know what I've gone through. They know that I've seen and experienced some really tough times but I've continued to succeed in life despite the setbacks and very traumatic experiences. Things that have made me a VERY STRONG person and I can truly say that I know that I am. Sometimes it makes me feel TOO unemotional because I look at things so different from most. I don't cry alot...in fact, I rarely cry. I see death differently than other people and I deal with things and handle tragedy differently. I have always hated for people to say that I am 'holding it in'. Nah, that's not it. I have no reason to HIDE my feelings and if I am emotionally effected enough to cry or lose control, believe me....I do. But most of the time, that is not the case. Does it make me evil?? No Does it mean I don't care? No I am just me. Everyone doesn't react to things in the same way and people need to realize that. Is THAT the reason for this blog...again..NO.

In the past couple of weeks, I have seen 2 very nice, sweet, and caring people that worked with me unexpectedly lose their lives. 43 and 45 years old. Within a matter of 2 weeks. Something about the holidays that seems to bring about alot of sadness and bad news. Then there's the "death comes in threes" statement. I tend to not follow those kind of things, but in the history I've known..it has been oh so true. You just never know. People need to stop all the petty, stupid, foolish acts against one another. Take pride in every day that you have and show those you love and care that you do. Let people KNOW how you feel and stop trying to "pretend" and "cover up" what's real. You have to let people know while you can, as not to regret it later when it's too late. You just never know...and I know this ohhh too well. I know what's it like to have an opportunity to make things right/better, and not taking it and have that person taken away within a matter of hours. Knowing that the last communication with that person was filled with anger and then going through a period of blame. All weekend, every phone call to my house has been MORE bad and disturbing news. A suicide, a family friend hit while walking to help another motorist in need that may possibly lose a leg, and another family friend diagnosed with breast cancer and given only 3 months to live.

There is just so much going on right now. People have to wake up and realize that tomorrow is not promised, so you have to do what's right TODAY!!!

Wow....and to hear that starting at 4a.m. this morning, text messages are swarming saying that Katt Williams died in a plane crash. Seeing as how no news channels or ACCURATE websites have made this announcement, I'd go with the fact that it's a STUPID and LAME rumor. *shaking my head*. People have nothing better to do but start a sea of lies.
