Scholarships for African-Americans and Resources to Answer, “What do I want to do when I grow up?”

Sometimes you meet people in the most surprising places.  I recently relocated to Tampa, Florida and flew out to Phoenix, Arizona to clear out my storage unit there.  My sister Mona Lise was brave enough to take the journey with me.  Although she kept texting the family #FacedownPrayer, there were many moments of sheer hilarity.  … Continue reading

Lessons Learned: Thursday, February 13, 2015

The tidbits from yesterday are below . . . I can sometimes pack way too much in a single day.  Procrastination, I really need for you to step away from me.  We can no longer be friends.  We cannot hang out.  There will be no more “quality time”!  Therefore, I have to let go of … Continue reading

Lessons Learned: Tuesday, February 10, 2015

These are my “take aways” from today . . . I cannot sit next to KB in the iPad Community meetings.  It’s like sitting next to a pesky younger brother.  First, he’ll say something.  Then, I’ll counter.  Or, we’ll start cracking jokes . . . in the middle of the meeting.  I cannot look in … Continue reading

The saga that is Brighthouse (Friday, December 5, 2014)

I requested that the Brighthouse technician call before arriving at my domicile. My appointment was between 4 and 6 p.m. I called at 5:30 p.m. for an ETA and was told that the technician canceled the call because no one was home. My phone never rang. I was told that a request was being put … Continue reading

Why I can’t go back . . .

When I look back at the person that was me on October 18, 2009, I simply can’t go back.  It’s been a journey filled with the ups of losing weight and feeling exponentially better and the lows and regaining almost 30 of the 70 pounds that I lost initially back when I moved here to … Continue reading

Time savings . . .

I’ve heard people say (and even I have said), “I don’t have enough time.”  However, we all have the same amount of time each week e.g. 1 week, 7 days, 168 hours, 10,080 minutes, or 604,800 seconds.  I can’t put my finger on the specific day.  However, one day I realized that I needed to … Continue reading

The Silver Bullet tried to make a run for it . . .

You know I think to myself, “My life cannot get any weirder or funnier.”  But, it can.  I try to listen when God is speaking to me.  He told me to go to JC Pennys.  I went and found a blender that was on sale for one of my girlfriends.  I was directed to go back … Continue reading
