ITS FRIDAY!!!!! :)
I'm sitting here putting finishing touches on my essay for this English class and I started going on about the Preamble of the Constitution. ALLLL of a sudden... I thought about School House Rock! I quickly went to YouTube and typed in School House Rock The Preamble, and... IT SHOWED UP!!
People don't know that it was school house rock and the fact that my social studies teacher in the 3rd grade made us watch ALLL the videos that had something to do with US History for 2 weeks straight that made US History my favorite subject. I guess she tried to get it in our heads and it worked! Till this day... I put on the songs, and weirdly enough, 10 years later, I STILL know how a Bill passes through the Supreme Court and the Preamble word for word haha. Im sitting at my desk singing the songs...it's great! I would like my readers to embrace in this and sing along cause I KNOW ya'll know it!(LOL... YouTube is the BEST right now!):
OK... that's enough haha. There was one video that I saw in class that's not on Youtube... the one about the 3 rings and a circus that has to do with government... anybody find it, shoot me an email :)
Ok... this is my MeMe Friday... Fill In the Blanks
1. I think time is going by sooo fast! Midterms are in 2 weeks!
2. I desire some serious rest and a little "me" time
3. What if the government paid for college education?
4. The best thing about music is the fact that even in your worst moods... it brightens up your spirits (especially those that happened during a postive time in your life
5. When will people just grow up!
6. The best thing that happened to me so far this week waking up every morning is enough to be happy about
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Seeing sexii Jamie Foxx in theaters and spending time with my friends

OK, this is kind of controversial:
The new dollar seems to be missing something... can u find it??
YES YOU'VE GUESSED IT! (LOLOL) It's missing "In God We Trust".
Ok, so Christians around the world are kind of angry and sending out emails saying "Don't accept the new dollar". Honestly, before I got the email, I didn't know anything about this (I know, I know... im slacking on my current events). This is crazy because I don't think anyone has a right to get angry over this (Am I right?).
1st of all, it says in GOD we trust, not in Allah, not in Buddah, but GOD. I not against this, because they should have done this a long time ago. I'm not atheist or anything... I am a Christian and I believe in God, but at the same time... this world is full of so many different cultures. I don't think it's fair to single out anyone. It's like when I was in elementary, high school, and middle school, EVERYONE was required to stand up in say the "Pledge of Allengience" and it said "Under God". Just a couple of years ago did they ban saying the pledge all together in schools. US currency is the next thing...
What do u guys think?
**Ok I just talked to my coworker about this and he seems to have STRONGGGGGGG opinions about this. He says that the constitution is based on God, and all other people that have different beliefs are just "visitors". The United States beliefs in God and "In God" the United States trust**
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>I did some research on this whole new dollar coin thing and this is what I came across. APPARENTLY... it just doesn't appear on the front or backs, but rather on the side of the coin... I feel dumb right about now hahahaha
But still... what if it was taken off the coin? How would u feel about it?

I know it's kind of early, but in dedication of turning 21 soon (ok... 5 months is soon! LOL), here's a special meme
13 Reasons why I'd rather have a root canal then to go back to being a teenager...
1)Having to deal with BOYS who can only talk to you over the phone because the 5 minutes you have in between classes isn't enough.
3) Back problems from carrying all your books in a book bag
4) Breaking up over email
6) Having some girl hate you because of who knows... she might not even have a reason. She just dont like you because you dress better then her or some crap like that...
7) PE and the whole going outside and walking a mile in 95 degree Atlanta weather
8) Not being able to wear whatever you want to wear to school (my school didn't let us wear flip flops... i thought that was tooooo much
9) Geometry... I promise you... I never liked it... never will
10) Rowdy, noisy school buses
11) Having to raise your hand to use the bathroom
12) Will you go out with me? Circle yes no maybe (hahaha cute... but no...)
13) Gossip as a teenager was FAR worse then gossip as an adult...

Today was the day that Mychal Bell was sentenced to 15 years in jail :(. I'm truly keeping his family, as well as everyone else involved in Jena 6, in my prayers.
Today is wear all black (for unity) or green (for growth, I believe). Me personally... I have on black, but it's anyone's choice :)
So on a lighter note, I'm not going to be able to blog tomorrow because I'm going out of town to Indiana for a wedding, so here's an early MeMe
This one is called top 5:
1. What are five TV shows that you love to watch?
Family Guy, America's Next Top Model, Anything on Travel Channel (I consider that one channel), South Park (guilty pleasure), Anything on the History Channel... *bonus* My Wife and Kids
2. What are the last five books you have read?
ooh wow.. all I do is read and I dont remember some of them... excluding the personal finance book I have to read for school... Addicted by Zane, God's Gift to Women by Michael Baisden, Confessions of a Video Vixen by Karrin Steffens, Maintenance Man by Michael Baisden, and umm.... 1 more... Secret Society (forgot the author's name)
3. Name five friends from your childhood. Tara, Brittney, Caley, Kimberly, and Amber
4. What are your favorite five bath & beauty products? My loofah sponge, my victoria's secret "lota colada" lip gloss, Sugar Warm Vanilla lotion from Bath and Body Works, Cashmere body wash by Caress? (don't quote me on that... it's along the lines of Caress or Dove...), and natural Shea Butter from your local flea market :)
5. Name five things about you or that you have done in your life that might surprise other people.
hmm... good question
a) I'm president of my dance team (this would surprise my best friend because back in 8th grade she swore up and down that I couldnt dance if my life depended on me haha... maybe I was alittle off back them, but that was determination to prove her wrong and GUESSSSS WHATTT??????
b) People look at me and don't think in a million years that I would be hard core into Hip-Hop. I know anything from Biggie to Tupac, to Common to Mos Def... I love the culture of Hip-Hop, even though I don't look the part
c) The weirdest song in my ipod that NO ONE would think would be in there... "Beautiful Day" by U2... yea... i love it!
d) I'm 20!!! LOL (i couldnt think of anything serious). Most people think I'm 17 and I'm kind of tired of that lol. Thing is... I dont even dress like I'm 17, I dress like I'm 21 at that, but still I get that, "Are you 18?" question.
e) hmm... i dunno... i guess i'll say something random. I use to work at hOOters as a "hOOter's girl". Contrary to many people's beliefs, we are not strippers (LOL). And it's pretty secured. We had a "body guard" and guys didn't really get unruly with us. I NEVER had a instance where someone got crazy towards me. I actually LOVED that job... it was really fun and laid back. Only thing I didn't like was the fact that we had to wear make-up cause im not big on all that and the shift were kind of funky.
This is IZZY... local rapper from Washington, D.C. Connected with Nick Cannon and guess what?? Doing it big with Uncle Jazze Fizzzlleee!.. he's noteworthy... me likes! :)

I've taken a liking into Baisden. I've read 3 of his books (Maintenance Man, God's Gift to Women and Why Men Cheat). I also try to listen to his talk show whenever I'm in the car on my way home from school.
In the light of his book "Why Men Cheat", I was talking to E2Deep about the subject of cheating. One thing that stuck out was he said that he "heard" a statistic saying that women cheat more then men. Honestly... I dont believe in statistics, and even more so, I STRONGLY don't believe in that stat. Women cheat on men MORE???? NOOOOOOO There HAS to be something wrong with that...
Now I dont necessarily believe that all men are dogs because it wouldnt be fair. Many men are not dogs, but sorry to say... men are bigger whores then women... Am I wrong?? (**ut oh i feel some controversy coming**) And quite frankly... if you're offended, you must fit in that category (Im seriously using the First Amendment).
First of all... I have plenty of males friends that are whore... no names given... and I've asked them why they are that way. Some say because women ask for it, some say because they're young, some say because they can do it and nobody looks at them bad like they would a woman if they do the same thing, and some even say.. because they can... ughh
My thing is... I think men cheat more because they use their other head when it comes to sex. Women are too emotional to let it go down with just anyone (although in this new age.... some women don't care just like men, but that's not enough to make that stat so high for women)
Now I'm going to turn the mic over to my readers and I want to know what you all think... who do YOU think cheats more... women or men?? Why?
MemeAHolic has inspired me to write a meme every monday and friday =]

Ok, so I'm president of my school, American University's, Hip Hop Dance Team known as the OC (Organized Chaos, formerly known as The Jump Off). Recently I realized having a high position in ANYTHING is hard work. This is pretty good cause it's like practice for my leadership. I'm trying to have my own business and holding the position as the President is good!
So... the last two weeks have been nothing but stress and happiness: Meeting deadlines and everything of course, but in the end, everything has came into place and I'm ready for try outs (YESSS EXCITING!!). I plan to do alot with this dance team. Have dance battles, parties, fundraisers... the works.
Anywho. Im at work, just got here, and ready to leave... but what's new? LOL
This isnt a very exciting post hahaha... and I doubt anyone will comment, but hey... im trying to have a post a day

Ok, I think I might just do the MeMe times every friday cause clearly... the week is stressful and at the end, you just want to let things off your chest so here it goes:
1) I wish I could go back to August 5, 2004...
2) Redskins suck... cowboys do too... falcons minus well give up the season until a Vick MiniHim comes... EAGLES ALWAYS!!
3) Stop walking around like u got an S on your chest... PLZ!
4) Why are you acting brand new all of a sudden?
5) FREE THE JENA 6!
6) God help me with my friends, I can handle my enemies.
7) Why are you talking to me? I mean... honestly... stop wasting my time as well as yours
8) If only my GPA was a little more points higher...
10) MEN ARE EASY...
THIS GUY (whom I know oh so personally) seems to think that women are easy with a simple formula (attention + a compliment= a woman's heart). Honestly, I wasn't offended because I think he's telling the truth, but when he said that if women don't respect themselves, why should he... I told him *personally* that that was ignorant... no... IGNANT! OK... so some women ask for it. I remember when I was in Miami for Memorial Day weekend and there was some females that had little to nothing on WONDERING why all the guys were calling them out of their names AND touching them in all the wrong places. HONESTLY, they asked for it! And then there are women that have been through some stuff and are truly sick. I dont think that gives a man the right to take full advantage of them. Some women may not respect themselves, but at the same time... many of them don't ask for it. Feel me? I feel like I'm confusing myself haha.
Anyways... He likes controversy and a good debate. Got to his page HERE and give him a piece of your mind. OHH and let me know what you think at well =]

Someone told me I had Beyonce's thunda' thighs and I was like.... OOOOHHHH my goosh! LOL. I mean, don't get me wrong... Beyonce is great! And I take that as a compliment, but it's weird cause I remember I was the "coin" of the nickname "slim" about 1 year ago. It's crazy!
So I've made a vow to myself to get into shape. Back in middle/high school I would play softball on the side (not for school), and I was able to run around with no problem, but that's not the case. I mean, I LOVE my figure 34-26-37... it's just I feel myself getting tired after like 3 flights of stairs... and I'm use to being in shape so it's time to bring out the workout clothes in the back of the closet and my gym membership card at the bottom of my business card holder cause it need to turn this into muscle and *work (cover girl) work it now (give it a twirl) hahaha* nah, but seriously, this is madness! LOL...
Put down that apple pie and ice cream and pick up an apple!!! LOL...

**OK I wanna clear something up... on my last blog, I was venting and stuff and I did some typos (LOL). When I was talking about the DC Metro (#3 of my Meme), I meant to so there are SOOO many empty seats available, but people want to sit next to me hahaha... i just changed it so yea...ok... now that that's over...**
These are the "evolution of my hair (hehe)". I have a point to why im doing this after the pics::
::Back in 2005 right before I was off to DC for college (I Look SOOO young!). My hair was like past my shoulders then::
::This is by my mom. She does hair and likes to take a pic of her "creations"... this is when she cut it sometime last November...
::Here's another pic::
::My new hair is my current pic... cut it back in July, not because I wanted to... because I HAD to :(::
Ok my story...
Last night when I was in the car with my BFF, E, coming back from Atlanta, we got on this discussion about hair. About a week ago I put braids in my hair, and yesterday, I took them out (LOL). E was like "Why did u put braids in your hair in the first place?" And I was like, "Because I can't do nothing with this short hair and it's annoying... I dont feel attractive anymore (yea boo hoo hoo lol)" And he was like, "WHAT??? My cousin told me, and I told u this before, 'I never realized how beautiful she was until she cut her hair off. Not too many people can pull off a hair style and it compliments her a lot." Yea... I blushed a little lol
Then he told me, when he cut all of his hair off (he had LONG braids), he felt unattractive because girls didn't go up to him anymore like that when he had braids. I looked at him like "ARE U CRAZY???" (That boy is FINE... I mean... da**), so I told him this, "When you had them braids in your hair, you attracted more 'out there' girls that were more aggressive (because he told me a lot of random females would go up to him and touch his hair). Now you attract more women who wouldn't normally go up to no guy and try to get his number because they feel like they are more content then that." And he agreed, because now he's attracting more of the older women crowd and younger girls use to be the ones coming up to him.
Same thing with me. Yea, I cut all my hair off, and yea, that's stop more guys from coming up to me boldly and talking to me. It's crazy, but I've realized how superficial this world really is. What's so called "attractive" among African-American women is permed straight long hair... not short hair. It's makes me sick, but I know that any man that does come up to me more then likely isn't superficial and realizes the beauty of a black women, hair or no hair. Then I referred to him about what a Good Black Man is...In that poem, I came across one particular part... "Good Black Men are indeed all around us. We pass them on the streets, in the malls, and at work. Most we can't see because we don't know what a good man really looks like. He usually
isn't flashy enough or rich enough to turn our heads. He might not wear a suit or push a Lexus. He might not have a body like Tyson with a Denzel face. But, as you mature, you realize it's better to find someone who's got your back rather than someone who turns your head."
And that's the same for a Good Black Female...
I've come to embrace my hair cause clearly, that's not what I'm all about (my hair). There needs to be more Good Black Men in this world, cause I know plenty of Good Black Females that are looking...
This is very interesting... SNAP TO THIS...
