When school is in session my blogs become very few. I so apologize for the lack of entertaining you all (whoever reads my blogs).
The title of the blog says it all...I'm in the swing of things.
Almost through with school. I'm fine tuning research papers, preparing for finals and the big ol' graduation day. I did it yeahhhh! I did it (Dora the Explorer just came to mind lol). This has been a long journey for me, so much took place, yet so much accomplished. I'm proud. More to come about graduation day. So stay tuned.
So the economy is in a pretty bad shape huh? Companies downsizing left and right and folks getting the bad end of the stick. I feel sorry for a lot of single mom's who got caught in the world wind. Praying it all looks up and gets better.
My book seems to be doing well. Folks are buying here and there and I'm liking the pace its going. I'm not pressured, yet I'm still on the go. I've been to an open mic at Soule Restaurant in Brooklyn and must say it was another wonderful night. I felt oh so comfortable there, that I'm looking forward to doing it again. The owner of the restaurant is ohhhhhh so chic! I love to see young people like myself do the DAMN thing. Goes to show there is something out there to live for. LIFE.
My doonks Iman has me all wrapped up in her mission to launch the coolest site ever for African American moms. Our daily chats and communication on the progress of the site is so exciting. I have to toot my own horn here: MY GIRLFRIENDS ARE COMPRISED OF YOUNG 30 SOMETHING YEAR OLD WOMEN WHO DON'T SETTLE FOR LESS AND ALWAYS AIM FOR THE SKY: now back to my blog; The site is cute and would launch in a few weeks. Its beneficial for us and hope you do stop by MomNoir. Her family blog is also up and running...she's doing So well. I'm so excited for the launch. I'm also a part of the shindig and must say...IT'S GONNA BE SMASHING. Also look out for info on her restaurant with her brother out in Philly (Calypso). Didn't I tell you we are go-getters????
I haven't sketched a thing in a very long time and I can't wait for school to be out to get some done. I'll sit in a park and enjoy the scenery. something original is dying to be drawn.
So that's it in nutshell. I'm still hanging on in school, still loving my writing journey and anticipating the new things to come.
And I'll say this again: nothing you put your mind to ever comes to fruition if you don't have the faith and guidance of God. Dream it, claim it and you'll get it

I haven't updated my blog in a while. Could be that I'm hooked on Facebook, learning twitter and have the other crazy stuff going on in my days.
Today was an awkward day for me. To give you a picture, it was shaped like a triangle with circle edges, fitted inside of a square. I have no shape nor form in things that I'm doing. I'm trying to fit in so many things in this little space of ambition and its like playing with a Rubik's cube with no design.
The cliche "so much to do, so little time" was quite evident today. Though I can't go back in time and I gather that this is how my path was etched, I am leaning toward the other day old cliche and say fuck it (yeah I cursed...wow) "what's to be will be". But how can I let it be. The "fuck it" just isn't sticking. I'm a perfectionist by nature and want things to go as it should...well the "should" I have control over.
But its so much, that even organizing my tupperware containers prove to be a challenge.
Life at 32...most I can do is anticipate 33. If I don't get it right now, what would happen then?
