I was just mentioning earlier today how I'll have to invest in a backpack pretty soon if things continue to go as they have over the last several weeks. I'm settling into school quite nicely. Some days I hate to drag out of bed, turn the computer on, do a bit of reading, answer a question, respond in a discussion thread, log back off and crawl back under the warm fuzzy cover.
Then I think to myself "kid you must be crazy - your classroom is either in your living room or on your lap. What more can you ask for?". The only thing I can think of is T I M E. I want to goof around on Facebook all day. I want to watch the Chopped marathon on FOOD Network. I want to read my favorite blogs. I want to see what the latest gossip is...but I just don't have the time.
Although advancing my studies in the field of nursing has been made more convenient via online studies. I still have to study. So, I might not be around as much...but I'm still here.
I've just finished my first course (with an A!) and will be tackling TWO this session...which starts next week. Wish me luck and I'll holler at you guys when I can.

I had no idea Beyoncé Knowles (Carter) was coming out with a self produced documentary chronicling [in an extremely monotone and superficial way] what it's like to be, who else, Beyoncé. The documentary included no interviews of other family members. I mean this extremely successful entertainer has a mother, father, sister, husband, former Destiny's child group members, and others in her inner circle that we're oblivious of that could have shared a more real world account of what it's been like for her, at least through their eyes. She thanked her family members for certain things they'd given her. Her mother for tirelessly praying for her and being there for her. Her father for teaching her the shrewdness required to be a no nonsense business woman and her insatiable drive to achieve her goals and dreams.
Still when she spoke of her father there was a hint of sadness in her voice. Their split was a lot messier than the "daddy-it's-time-for-me-to-grow-up-and-make-my-own-decisions" that she attempted to pawn off on the millions (I'm sure) that viewed her documentary.
I won't spend a lot of time on Beyoncé. I would hate for anyone to mistake me being nosey and having nothing else to blog about this morning for a fanatical Bey lover obsessed with her every move - NOT!. One thing that I did notice was how she looked directly into the camera and spoke with such conviction, emotion and candidness........until the little exert about the rumors about her using a surrogate to carry her and Jay-Z's baby was brought up. Her eyes diverted left....then right...rarely did she look into the camera. All tell tell signs of deception. Does she think she'll lose her legion of fans simply because she chose to use a surrogate. They're not the only couple who've used this as an option, if this is truly the case.
I enjoyed my pregnancies but if I had the hush money to pay off an incubator.... I can't say that I wouldn't have done it too. Honey you can have these swollen ankles, full bladder, big(ger) nose and post-baby body...that it takes more than 4 weeks to be absolutely perfect again...if you were perfect in the first place.
I enjoyed your performances Beyoncé. You're a dynamic entertainer....but your documentary was just more hype and exposure..... .....
oh...but the baby was cute :-))

I've never had the pleasure of eating Chicken & Waffles but it seems to be a real treat. So much so that Lay's is rolling out a couple of fan inspired new flavors of potato chips. Uhhhh... think I'll pass.
Sorry I haven't been around much lately. school, work, and ridding the streets of crime in Gotham City is keeping me pretty busy.....

Okay, I'm not going to sweat Bey too much for this (cause all chicks hate to take ugly pics). I mean I always have to take, retake, grab someone else's phone and approve or disapprove of my pics before they post. So, in a sense I do feel her pain. But this phenomenal woman has got to realize that even though she's drop dead gorgeous, thanks to genetics and a little help from
The difference is her and the average camera hog, like me, is the fact that she has thousands of gorgeous ones plastered EVERYWHERE!
She jiggles, pumps it up, drops it low and shakes it like no one I've seen in years. Let's face it the girls got talent.
|Don't smush the baby!!!!!|
An angelic voice, a gorgeous body (doesn't look like she ever carried a baby ) *hint* *hint*
I think the idea of her publicist wanting popular blogs and other websites to remove unflattering pics captured of her during her Super Bowl Half Time Performance is a bit much.
|One thing's for sure|
|funny as hell....lol|
She doesn't seem to mind the provactive poses and glamorous facial shots she took in the latest edition of Gentlemen's Quarterly....
C'mon Bey...take one (or a few) for the team. Prove to the world and your legions of fans that you can take an ugly pic too (every blue moon)
And for goodness sake....let's not bring up that nose issue again.

I can't give the internet full credit for connecting me with this beautiful soul. We are step-parents...lol. She and I are the mothers of two young twenty somethingers (new word) trying to find their way in life. Our sons met by chance in the military which aligned the stars that guided our paths to the intersection that we now share.
Little did I know what a true star Bella is. I love her sense of style, her intelligence, confidence and vast knowledge about all things beautiful. Oni Bella is an Artist, Event and Home Stylist, Reluctant Socialite, and purveyor of creative ideas revolving around eclectic style and affordable luxury. She dances on the precipice of real life, seeking to cop little luxurious nuggets of lifestyle from high society to bring back to the masses while juggling home and family, because she believes everyone should have the opportunity to live well.
She’s quick on her feet, bold, cultured, yet, sometimes quirky, doing it all while wearing a ball gown (or Uggs and leggings) and her beloved Converse, with her trusty iPhone and a tube of Dior lip gloss tucked safely in her bra.
She’s the homegirl you love to kick it with and yet, she is always a lady; casting disapproving glances at loud cell phone talk and other such rudeness, she’s a little bit goofy and often geeky, but always about her business. She’s the good idea fairy, she’s always smiling, she’s your most elegant and artistic friend.
She is Onibella and she can’t wait to bring a little extra fabulousness to your life.
