2012 is here

UPDATED AT 12:41am JANUARY 1, 2012

It will soon be is now 2012...2011 went by in such a blur, i really don't even remember most of it lol.

Things 2011 taught me:
You can ALWAYS get closer to God. And there are no limits to how He will reach out to you so keep your eyes, ears, and heart open

People change...sometimes they change so fast you don't even know wtf is happening

Everything happens on God's time so there's no need in trying to rush things

Sometimes it takes way more strength to get up and walk away then it does to just stay and try and "make it work"

Not everyone is going to see things the way you see them (even when you're right and they're wrong lol)

I don't go on legit vacations enough. I need to change that lol

No matter how much time goes by and things change, some things/people will always stay the same!

I have way more strength, patience and willpower than i've ever given myself credit for, all i can say is wow, go me!

Blog buddies are some of the best buddies to have :)

Things to look forward to in 2012:
Being an even more awesome me!

Even more weddings and babies and stories of triumph from my friends and loved ones

Another great year of blogging

GRADUATION!!! (God willing) My grandma already bought her plane ticket and everything...#NoPressure

Getting a real full-time job (again, God willing)

Giving up my tiara (so i've been told) #InsideJoke

Seeing if Santa delivers on the new addition to my Christmas list next year

I wish u all a blessed and prosperous new year! Love ya loadz!!!

Someone wants to marry me

So many people i know got engaged this christmas. Clearly i need to amend my list to Santa for next year if he's touching hearts like that cuz i'm hatin big time! Definitely saw some nice ass rings too. Big Time Hating!!! But but but...someone did hit my formspring box on the 24th with this:


Hmmm...well its good to know somebody actually does. But i'm sure this process would move a bit more smoothly if i actually knew who you were...


Yeah, so whomever you are, i'm just here chillin and waiting...you can come and collect your bride whenever ur ready o (pending certain circumstances)!

And I'm Back (again)

HEY EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!

Did you miss me?!? (You don't have to answer that, I already know you did! How could you not???) I missed you all too.

First, thanks for all the bday wishes! You guys are the bestest. And thanks to those who checked up on me during my trip.

I'm finally back home. It was such a long journey back. 10 hr flight to Dallas, then 3 hr layover playing with the customs people and such, then another 2 hr flight to tampa, then another 2 hr drive to my parents house. To say i'm glad to finally be home is a huuuuuuuuuuuuge understatement lol.

London was awesome though. I had so much fun. I could definitely see myself living there (if i were ballin' cuz that place is nothing if not expensive) Paris...eh, not so much. Maybe if everyone wasn't speaking gibberish french, i may have enjoyed myself a little bit more there. I did see the most beautiful man i've ever seen in my life though. Too bad nothing came of it lol. I even called my mom and told her i found her a son in law and she got all excited...until i told her that all we did was exchange glances and that was that lol.

Well since i'm off for the next week or so, i'll probably be blog stalking you guys and trying to catch up on all that i've missed. Happy Holidays everybody :)

*And Big HELLO and WELCOME to the new readers out there

I didn't mean to call ya'll b!tches lol

I woke up this morning....the day of my 25th birthday, in a brand new country! I think thats worth celebrating.

So happy birthday to me and thank you London for the awesome welcome.

Hope you all are having a great week.

Today i didn't even have to use my AK...


I gotta say it was a good day!


#ThugLife

Anywho, yeah today was a good day. Got a lot done at work. Went shopping and ended up gettin a couple pairs of jeans for crazy cheap from Forever 21 (i haven't shopped there since like middle school lol). I was supposed to go to a lil soiree at my professor's house but i got lost..and frustrated...and just ended up going back to my apartment lol. I'm bad with confusing directions and refuse to waste more than a few minutes being lost before i say "screw it, i tried!"

Anywho, the highlight of my day was exchanging my US dollars for Pounds and Euros (which are weird as i don't know what). I called around trying to find who would give me the best rate in the shortest amount of time and i settled on this place in the mall near Mickey Mouse. So after i left work, i went to the bank to take out the cash (man, was that painful!). There was a line. So i'm waiting...and a lady walked up to me and asked if i was making a deposit and I told her no, i was making a withdrawal. She offered to help me so i went with her to her little desk and she handled my transaction. We got to talking and OMG..this lady would not let me leave. I suppose it was partially my fault. I asked about their currency exchange and if that particular branch did it and maaaaaan, you should've seen the way her eyes lit up lol. She was real quick to try and start putting in an order for me. I had to tell her to pump her brakes, i just wanted to know if they did it and what their rates were since i was already on my way to exchange my chump change somewhere else.

So she disappeared for a lil while and came back with the rates which were only like 10cents better than where i was going, plus there was a 24-48 hour turn around whereas the place i was going had cash on hand. So i told her thanks but no thanks and assumed she'd hand over my money and let me be on my way...

No such luck!

She proceeded to try and get me to get a new credit card, set up automated bill payments through their website, all kinds of ish. I'm just looking at her like lady...just give me my money! Eventually she gave me my money and walked me out and told me i should stop in and show her pics from my trip when i get back lol. She was nice but she was just trying to do way to much.

Special Shoutout to my newest sorors who just crossed up at Alpha Chapter: "Creative 5entimiento". When I look at you....

Team Fat Kid

Hey everyone. Happy New Week. I actually was at work from 10am-7pm. On a flippin Sunday...doing apartment walk-throughs and other stuff. My feet are so sore.  I remember i told my supervisor that it was against my religion to work on Sunday (lol). One person looked at me and said "is it really?" (which i personally thought was weird because honestly who doesn't know that in this largely Christian country) and my supervisor said "oh well, have a drink afterwards!" WTF?!? lol. So you want me to work AND get liquored up?!? That's the opposite of keeping the Sabbath holy. Anywayz, when I finally got back to my apartment, i collapsed onto the bed, started reading something on my laptop and then 3 hours later opened my eyes because apparently at some point i slumped and fell asleep.

Anywho, I'd like to direct your attention to a couple of blogs i've read recently. The first is kinda funny/kinda sad. It's a letter written by a dude who was shunned (for lack of a better word) by a girl he went on a date with. You can find it here

The second (though i'm sure a lot of you are tired of talking/reading/hearing about it, is about the Bill passed outlawing "public" homosexuality. I don't really have anything to say about the post, but the comment was spot on (minus a few points) about how i feel about the situation. You can find that here

I have an overabundance of junk food right now! Like seriously, every day someone is giving me snacks..especially since Christmas is coming. Today (Sunday) i got a big @$$ bag of skittles, a big pack of reeses peanut butter cups (which i loooooooooove), and a goodie bag filled with an assortment of homemade cookies. Last week my supervisor got me Lindt's Lindor Chocolate truffles. At the beginning of the week i got doughnut holes and some other snack. And thats just the crap i can remember. All this junk is not helping the cause at all -not that i'm complaining lol, i'm a chocolate junkie!


PS: I changed the background just for you Ade Moss's Son! Appreciate it jo!!! lol

Finito

Ah, it felt sooooooo good to give away the duty phone today! I don't think I've ever been so relieved in my life (im exaggerating...being on duty wasn't that bad). I appreciate having my freedom back. Even if only for a lil while.

I'm also done with classes for the semester. Took a final on Tuesday and submitted the 4th draft of my lit review on Wednesday. I actually got up and did a lil dance after i  hit "submit" on Wednesday. That paper has been the bane of my existence all semester.

I can't believe I am going to London in less than a week. I haven't even done anything to prepare. I am such a procrastinator. Time just snuck the hell up on me. Crazy. It seems like just 5 minutes ago the trip wasn't for another 6 months and then *ka-blaam* its in less than 6 days! I haven't changed any money over (thankfully i live in a tourist town- everybody comes to see Mickey Mouse lol- so there are lots of currency exchange places semi-nearby), i don't even have a coat let alone winter clothes. Not Okay. I will be doing some serious shopping and preparation this weekend!!

Hope you had a great week and have an even better weekend :)

And then there was 1

I'm tired of crying so why not have a laugh instead. *i promise at some point i'll actually come here and write something worthwhile. But until then, please be content in just sharing an e-laugh with me :)

I need a laugh

It has been such a stressful ass week. I am in desperate need of a laugh among other things so i went on over to http://damnyouautocorrect.com and picked out these hilarious lil gems to share:





LOL, is the auto correct feature really that bad on the iPhone?!?

Monday, December 5, 2011

you asked, i answered

Some time ago I asked you guys to entertain me by hitting up my formspring with questions. Some of you obliged me lol. Here are some of the questions i got (the 1st two were from before i made the request...but since my formspring link is only on this blog i'm assuming someone from around here asked those questions too). There's a couple that i had to leave out because the formatting is giving me a headache so if you don't see your question...thats why!


Nope, sorry


yes and no. Generally, i'm pretty comfortable with myself since i've been heavy practically my entire life. But there are days when i wish i were a lil smaller. I think we all have those days but we have to try and get through it the best (and most positive) way we can!


that depends, are you trying to be my boyfriend? ;) lol


oh dear, i have so many lol. I guess the biggest ones are people who lie, people who are close-minded, rudeness, and cheating.


Well Nigerians are EVERYWHERE and where ever there is any amount of Nigerians, there are associations. Just in this one area of florida i live in, there are several igbo (not sure if Imo state has its own here but i know alot of the people in the one igbo association i know of are from Imo), yoruba, ijaw, edo, urhobo, etc associations, plus general nigerian associations, mens associations, women's associations, and pretty much every major uni has an african student association and we've all worked together over the years. I hope that answered your question.


LOL, no one is cooking in my house for thanksgiving...but you're more than welcome to come if you put yourself on kitchen duty (or take me to a nice restaurant...which ever works best for you)

So there ya have it. If you still wanna ask something, be my guest and hit the formspring box located on the right left hand side of this page :)

The dumbest ish ever

Me and my mom argued about this stupid commercial before lol. It just came on tv a few seconds ago so i thought i'd share:


One day me and mom dukes were watching tv and this commercial came on and the following conversation occurred:
Me: this is the dumbest commercial ever in life
Mom: lol, (yes, she really laughed) why do you say that
Me: Because it's unrealistic and that kid is probably a dope fiend anyway!
Mom: oh my goodness, how do you figure that?
Me: Well first off all, i've never gotten free food for not being a crackhead! In fact, I'm bout to start going to restaurants and having loud anti-drug conversations so i can get in on some of these free meals people seem to be giving out.
Mom: LOL
Me: And the kid obviously does drugs anyway!
Mom: how do you know that?
Me: Because he said, nah, i gotta hit the books when they offered it. Which implies that if he didn't have to study he'd be right there puff-puff-passin with them!
Mom: well maybe he just used having to study as an excuse so he doesn't look uncool.
Me: Mom...you know i've never done drugs right???
Mom: *raised eyebrow* yeah...
Me: Well every single person i used to hang out with did. And after it was established that i was not a smoker..they never asked me to smoke with them, except jokingly every once in a blue moon. See that's how i know he's a weedhead. They wouldn't have even offered it to him if he didn't already smoke with them on the regular!
Mom: hmmmm
Me: I Win!


Some other things i've noticed:

  1. Did you see how long it took dude to reply when his friends asked him to go smoke with them? That nigga was probably already high! I mean, why else would someone go to a diner?!? (j/k j/k)
  2. Did ya'll see that random white boy with them lol. Anything to try and make it "non-racist". Add a little white boy so it doesn't seem like you're trying to say only/all black kids are druggies lol

virgin diaries



This literally made me LOL and shiver a little bit (not in a good way). I mean, i am all for people saving their virginity for marriage. The bible commands it, does it not? And i can see how someone would want to save their first kiss for their hubby/wifey as well. Especially if you are worried about temptation. But this video itself would be enough to make me at least wanna get the kissing part out of the way early. That ish does not look appealing AT ALL! lol. This just looks frightening and a lil painful. I guess in their minds, what they were doing looked like what they'd seen all their lives (or maybe they've never seen people kiss...possibility). I was a youngin when i had my first *real* kiss (like 12 or 13) but it didn't look like that. And i don't think that back then i thought it should look like that either. *shrugs shoulders*

Anyway, what say you folks? Do you think that you would/could/should save everything for marriage, including your first kiss? Does their lip-lock look crazy or am i just trippin? If saving everything for marriage wasn't part of your initial game plan, do you think you could/would if you met someone you could see yourself having a future with that was abstinent?

Sidenote: I randomly came across this article and i just love it! Check it out if you like.

Its my anniversary!

No, not that kind of anniversary.

4 years ago today, i alongside my beautiful linesisters, was initiated into Lambda Psi Delta Sorority Incorporated via the Elite Epsilon Chapter. It seems like that was sooooooo long ago. Most of my syands are going on about "omg, 4 years already" while i'm just like it's only been 4 years?!? LOL. I guess its cuz i've been puttin in major work for the past 4 years. But i love it. Being in my sorority and in the Greek community at large is why i'm studying what i'm studying and why i want to do what i want to do. These women have had such an impact on my life that its hard to believe that they've only been part of my life for 4 years. ♥

The night we crossed! Yeah, i know we look a mess. It was a rough night lol

Love Letters

It has been a crazy stressful week and its only Wednesday morning (really I started writing this Tuesday afternoon after my supervisor left but ssshhhh...don't tell nobody!)...as in, i've been inches away from choking the life out of so many people. And its only going to get crazier with the semester break coming and my residents moving out and all that jazz. No bueno. But anyway, you all didn't come here to read about my problems (or maybe you did, who knows) so on with the point of the post

The post actually isn't really about love or love letters...well it is, but not in the way i'm sure you all were expecting. So let me just get on with it instead of stalling like i've been doing lol.

We've all had that set of friends...a boy and a girl...that we've either assumed were "together" or felt like they ought to be. Most often we're met with the "No, we're just friends", "He/She is like my brother/sister to me", or "Damn, can't i have friends anymore?!? Why we gotta be dating?" And you probably roll your eyes and say whatever, you guys would be perfect for each other or something to that effect.

But there is a scenario that's even more perplexing. Have any of you ever had a set of friends (or maybe just one the two people) say "yeah, he/she is cool people but i know way too much about them to ever date them"? (o_0) That crap never made sense to me. Wouldn't you want to know the inner workings of your boo-thang's mind?

Well, ladies and gents I am here today to tell you- it definitely makes sense now. So I have this friend. Granted, when the friendship began...there definitely was some *tension* there (i don't have to spell it out, do i?) but even through the tension we got to know one another and dude is awesome all the way around. I could def see myself catchin major feelings. But um in that "getting to know you" time, we shared a lot of information that maaaaaaaaaaybe i coulda done with out. Don't get me wrong, i love the fact that we have that open comunicacion but damn if it didn't put a damper on the feelings. That's still my dude and all, but yeah...i doubt highly that you + me will ever = us!

Thou shalt not steal

Hola beautiful people. Hope you all had a great weekend, had lots of yummy food for thanksgiving, lots of great deals on black friday (or are hitting up those store websites for cyber monday)! I stole this post from Enigma. I was gonna wait until later in the week to do it but i really don't have anything pressing i wanna talk about right now so i decided to do this post today. Enjoy (or not, whatever)!
1. Have you ever licked the back of a CD to try to get it to work? Yes I have...well maybe not licked but definitely drooled on it and rubbed it with a tissue lol
2. What’s the largest age difference between yourself and someone you’ve dated? i'd say about 10 years, im not entirely positive
3. Ever been in a car wreck? yup..not fun at all. Thank God none of us was seriously hurt
4. Were you popular in high school? IDK, guess it depends on who you ask. I've always known a lot of people (younger and older) and a lot of people have known me...
5. Have you ever been on a blind date? Not a blind date per se, but definitely one of those "person a and b get together and they both bring friends for their friends to the get together" situations
6. Are looks important? Not most important, but still important none the less
7. Do you have any friends that you’ve known for 10 years or more? Yeah, 2 and a whole bunch of associates
8. By what age would you like to be married? IDK...i don't wanna be makin babies after 32 so sometime between now and then would be nice
9. Does the number of people a person’s slept with affect your view of them? not really. Im more concerned with what diseases/babies/crazy exes are in (and out) of the picture.

14. Have you ever peed in public? no sir/ma'am
15. What song do you want played at your funeral? I don’t even want to think about that. But something upbeat. I want loved ones to celebrate my life, not mourn my death.
16. Would you tell your parents if you were gay? Well they would find out eventually anyway
17. What would your last meal be before getting executed? The world's rarest truffle...cuz then it'd take forever to find, giving me a chance to escape
18. Beatles or Stones? don't care
19. If you had to pick one person on earth to die, who would it be? Really? WDDDA?!?
20. Beer, wine or hard liquor? depends on my mood. Never beer...usually a girlie drink or a nice glass of champagne will do.

SMH

Despite a lagging economy and high unemployment rates, retailers are reporting this year is one of the best for sales, with 152 million shoppers expected to hit stores this Black Friday.
Early reports suggest that bigger crowds were found at the nation's malls and stores as retailers like Macy’s and Target opened their doors at Midnight.

It what seems to be a burgeoning Black Friday tradition, reports of violence erupted throughout the country.
Authorities in Los Angeles say that 20 people suffered minor injuries at a local Walmart when a woman used pepper spray on them to get to the front of the line when the store opened Thursday evening.
Police in Fayetteville, N.C. are hunting for two suspects after gunfire went off early Friday in the Cross Creek Mall.
At a Walmart in upstate New York, a man was arrested after two women were injured in a fight that broke out.
In Phoenix, television station KSAZ reported that a grandfather was roughed up by police after he put a game in his waistband to free up his hands to lift his grandson above the crowd.  He was slammed to the ground by cops, who likely assumed that he was shoplifting.
Adding to that, some Occupy Wall Street protesters, which turned up for the Macy's midnight opening, are expected to plan flash mobs and other events later in the day in places like Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Boise, Idaho to urge people to reconsider shopping at national chains on Black Friday.
The incidents come as a record number of shoppers are expected to head out to stores across the country this weekend to take advantage of discounts of up to 70 percent. For three days starting on Black Friday, 152 million people are expected shop, up about 10 percent from last year, according to the National Retail Federation.
Indeed, about 600 shoppers were in line at a Target store in Brooklyn in New York when it opened at midnight. By the time it opened at midnight, nearly 2,000 shoppers wrapped around a Best Buy store in St. Petersburg, Fla. Mall of America, the nation's largest mall in North America, had 15,000 shoppers for its midnight opening. And more than 9,000 people were outside the flagship Macy's store in New York's Herald Square at its midnight opening, up from 7,000 a year ago.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

What did the 5 fingers say to the face?

Im not a big fan of celebrity gossip (even though i read mediatakeout.com religiously- don't judge me) but i really wanna say that if i had the opportunity to slap the mess out of someone right now it'd be that stupid Kim Kardashian broad. I am just so over her and her bs right now. She got married and divorced in less than a semester, came up with a cock and bull story about how she thought she was in love and how the whole thing had nothing to do with money (despite giving certain magazines/photographers exclusive rights to cover her wedding, honeymoon and film her life and allegedly making millions in the process) and now the hoe is making an entire new series about her "marriage" and divorce starring Kris Humphries as the villain. I hope he sues the big fake butt cheeks right off of her! /end rant

Anywho, hey everybody! Hope those who celebrate it had a great thanksgiving and are out and about doing some safe black friday shopping. I don't play that Black Friday stuff...especially when you hear all the stories of people getting trampled to death in the name of a sale. As if its the last or best sale on earth #ItsNot
My mommy caved and made thanksgiving dinner last night #SoThankful for that (and all the other wonderful people, things, blessings in my life)

So i'm back on this wedding fever kick again. IDK what is going on in this brain of mine. I just love weddings (traditional and church weddings). The clothes, the atmosphere, the love. Its all so awesome. But i'm definitely content to just watch for now. ♥

I need some sugar (as in actual sugar, not sugar) but its late and i'm not trying to go outside and encounter any of the late night shoppers :(


Have an awesome weekend lovies!

Midweek random thoughts

I have been thinking about starting another blog...2 actually. I'm not sure yet. I've actually been thinking about it for a while, i just haven't told anyone or made any moves towards making it happen. If i do create a new space for myself, i'll still keep this blog going though.


I just went on a mini-deleting spree on fb. I'm really unintentionally mean with the way i delete people...i usually do it on their birthday. Evil, I know. But i don't do it purposely to be mean. Its just that i have all these random friends that i don't really know/have no interest in knowing but i don't ever really notice them until i get that "today is so-and-so's birthday" notification. So i figure, now's as good a time as any to go ahead and hit that unfriend button.


I also delete people when they say something stupid. Especially if i am not really cool with them like that anyway. Like i just deleted this one dude. I kinda sorta know him. Like i've seen him around and he's friends with some people that i'm friends with but i can't honestly tell you that i've ever even spoken to him. And the funny thing about this kid is that we've been fb friends for like 5 years. And he used to delete me and re-add me all the freaking time til it got to the point where i told him that the next time he disappears from my friend list he shouldn't expect me to accept him back. Well...now he's gone and yeah...


I have an overwhelming desire to get out of florida. I don't know where i want to go, but i know i want to go...But there are a few things holding me back (not necessarily in a bad way). I will be graduating soon (God willing) and i am starting to look at jobs at universities in other states...i've even considering going to participate in the placement exchange...but every time i think about it, i keep thinking about the things tying  me to florida and what would happen if i end up getting a job in like California or something. SMH. Whatever, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.


I thought i had a handle on this "patience is a virtue" thing...but all manner of nonsense that has been happening today (tuesday) has reminded me that i don't. I don't think i've ever been on the verge of punching/slapping/kicking so many people in one day in my entire life lol.


I love Drake. I definitely have to give him a break before. I think watching Degrassi reruns and then turning on BET and hearing him rap was way to big of a leap and way too quickly (not to mention that you couldn't go anywhere without hearing one of his songs or a song he was featured on and he hadn't even dropped an album!). But now that i went on a Drake hiatus but have come back....i so into him and all his emo-ness! I love it!!!

I need to listen to the Anticipation 2 mixtape by Trey Songz. Anticipation was just amazing and if the second is anything like the first, i'll seriously be out looking for Mr. Steal Yo Girl

Ok, i'm done rambling. Time to get some freakin sleep. Thank goodness for the holiday. Today (wednesday) is my last day of work for the week and then i'm going hooooooooome (even though there won't be any thanksgiving dinner waiting for me *still bitter*)

Deuces

good times and ish

I just spent a lovely weekend in tampa visiting my friends and sorors. Nothing too exciting to report this time around. But i definitely had an awesome time hanging out with my sisters and their boos and babies....though its always slightly awkward being the only single/childless person in the room. But i'm cool with that though! #NoBabiesAnytimeSoon. I'm perfectly content to playing with my Sorors' children for now. Moral of the story is that good times were had by all...well by me at least!
Sidenote: Speaking of babies...i'm so stealing Nenyenwa's baby one day, she is sooooooooooooo freaking adorable!

While i was in sunny Tampa Bay, there was this person who, for lack of a better phrase, was tryna smash all weekend. Now, the idea that this person wanted access to my tasty treats down below is not overall surprising. Afterall, he's a guy...i'm a girl...these things happen. But there are several key factors here that just made me say:
with that facial expression and everything!
  1. The day i was going to Tampa, this person was involved in some crazy fb brawl with one of his baby mamas (who was staking her claim to the dude) and some other young lady.
  2. During the first round of "hey we should link up" texts, the back-handed implication for sexual activity was made and i was very quick to put an end to such conversation. He acted offended and insisted that he was only interested in "catching up"... at 3am...Uh-huh, right.
  3. The next day, we start our 2nd round of "when are we gonna link up" texts and this person states that we should hang out in my hotel room....yeah, not happening! His justification: I'm at Warri Boy's apartment...my response...if we're only "catching up" then why does it matter that you're at Warri Boy's apartment?
  4. Later that evening came the "i got locked out of Warri Boy's apartment but i don't mind spending the night with you in your hotel room so you don't have to make fifty-'leven trips" ARE YOU SERIOUS MY DUDE?!? 
  5. After effectively (or so i thought) shutting down any false hopes of any face down, ass up bedroom activity going down, i was met again with a text stating "yeah, im too horny to be around you anyway cuz i know myself and i would have tried u" um...no $#!+ Sherlock...as if that wasn't the goal all along! 
I may have been born at night (i wasn't lol) but not last night! Sheesh. I would have appreciated dude keepin it 100. I mean, we are adults, no? If u wanna do the horizontal mambo, all you have to do is ask. You never know what the answer will be (in this case it obviously was a loud and resounding no but im just sayin...). No hard feelings tho lol.

Anywayz, that was my weekend in a nutshell. I trust you all had enjoyable weekends too...and if not, well, sorry. Maybe next weekend will be better.

    Um totally unrelated but...what the hell is this? LMAO
    Have a great week folks!


    Additional sidenote: my mother has decided she's not cooking thanksgiving dinner. Like...really mom? WDDDA?!? *sad face* That lil revelation got me to thinking that at some point in life (pretty soon) i'm gonna have a household of my own and thanksgiving dinner is kinda gonna be my responsibility. Damn, where are the years going? Adulthood is a tricky lil devil that just sneaks up on ya outta nowhere

    That's just crazy

    You would think that a hospital that doesn’t know the difference between drugs that make you healthy and those that kill you wouldn’t be in business for very long.  But when it comes to black folks and health care, you never know what you’re going to get.
    Richard Smith went to the hospital in July, 2010.   The man from Florida said that he was having trouble breathing and had some pain in his stomach.
    For whatever reason, the nurse at the hospital injected Smith with Pancuronium, the same drug that is given to death row inmates.  Yes, the drug killed him, as it is supposed to do.
    The nurse meant to give him the antacid Pepcid, but grabbed the death drug instead.  The man went into respiratory arrest and was revived. But he died a month later, with his family now filing a massive lawsuit.
    “We conducted an internal review and have several new processes in place to ensure a situation like this doesn’t happen again,” the hospital said in a statement.
    But for those who think about checking into Miami’s North Shore Medical Center, you may want to heed a word of warning:  That same nurse is still working in the Intensive Care Unit.

    Is it really worth it???




    If you let this man (yes, man!) perform plastic surgery on you for $700 out of your kitchen...you deserve everything that you get thereafter. Learn to love yourselves folks. Getting a fat(ter) booty or bigger tits is not worth your life!
