Planning

So sorry that it has been a long time since I have written. It’s been a busy time for me. Busy and exciting. On Monday I will be able to drive once again. I’m very excited. Next week I have to get my car’s tags renewed and the car inspected before I go down to see my BFF the first weekend of October. I am so looking forward to it. Everything seems to be going well with me. I also am working on little projects like pillowcases for the babies (my niece and nephew, my BFF’s babies) that I have to get done before I go down. There is just so much to get done before I go down. I’m excited to have my freedom back officially in five days. I will update soon.

Remembering 9/11

9/11/2001 was a very difficult day for us as a country. What happened should never have happened to anyone. It was an example of hatred and what hatred can do to others. I know we will never be able to stop hatred in this world. But I pray that people see through differences and see our similarities. If terrorism and hatred is what you want to leave in this world, think again, America will always fight back till the last breath.

It’s September and I’m back

I know I wasn’t very active last month everyone. I’ve been trying to get myself in order and it’s just been hard for me. I’ve been seeing a social therapist and it’s a strange transition talking to her. I’m also struggling with my weight. It’s going up and down and I am trying to get it to go back down. I don’t see the bariatric surgeon until November, so until then I am hoping to lose weight nonetheless.

September is also a difficult time because I am studying for my CCA exam which I will be taking next month. One good thing is that I am going to be able to drive on the 25th of this month. I can’t wait. I just can’t wait to drive my car again by myself. 🙂

I have also decided to go back to school one more time. I have decided to apply to WVU for a major in Geology. I want to be a paleontologist and if I never try then I know I will regret it. So I will go ahead and apply for the Spring quarter. Anyway, that’s all I have to say for now. Talk soon.

Project Runway, Season 16, Episode Three

I’m a couple of days late on my review of this episode. I just totally didn’t feel good and didn’t watch the whole episode on Thursday and when I finally did, I forgot to post my review. Anyway, I thought this episode was really great. It had the designers to be inspired by dance. I think my favorite outfit was Kenya’s. It was just so interesting the way she put it together. I also loved Brandon’s. As we get more in the season we learn more and more about the designers and so far I am very happy with what I am seeing so far. The designer who won was Brandon and the designer who was out was Kudzanai. I just think he way overdid his outfit. I also didn’t like Deyonte’s. However, I think everyone has there strengths and weaknesses. I think Kudzanai will excel and we will see him elsewhere. So those are my thoughts. Have a good night!

Project Runway, Season 16, Episode 2

Well today was the premiere of episode two for Project Runway’s new season. The contestants had to work in three teams and use recycled materials for their challenges. It was the unconventional materials challenge. A real favorite among many of the watchers of the show. It is one of mine. So there were three teams: Team Ballin’ on a Budget, Team Tsunami, and Team Wabi-Sabi. Team Ballin’ on a Budget were the winners and Team Tsunami was the losers. From the winning team I was very impressed because their whole collection was very cohesive and beautiful and it really didn’t look like recycled material at all. However, from the losing team, it just seemed like a mish-mash and that some of the outfits weren’t transformed. Which was unfortunate. The twins worked in the losing team and Shawn kept having a mental breakdown and other issues. The winner was Ayana. The loser was Sentell. He had a dress that could have been done better. He finished early and his dress looked more like a garbage bag. He hadn’t transformed it enough. I know he’ll go on to do good things though. So those are my thoughts for this episode. Let me know what you think. Have a good night.

Sick of the racism and hatred

This has been on my mind for a long while. Since before the Charlottesville attacks. I’m just going to go ahead and say it, ‘I’m sick of racism and hatred being spread through our country.’ But people might mistake me for a racist at times. I don’t like to narrow down on races. Like if there is a ‘Black Lives Matter’ rally, yes they do, but why can’t it be ‘All Lives Matter’ rally instead. I have my right to my opinion okay. I’m not trying to say that black people don’t deserve to have rallies and such, but we as a country need to come together and focus not on race or the color of our skins, but on love and the persons within. We need to focus on forcing out the hate within the country that has been buried so deep in it. I found a website called Southern Poverty Law Center. The link lead you to some information about some extremist groups. I just thought that overall it is a really interesting site and it helps in combating hate. But that is my thoughts for now. Talk soon.

Project Runway, Season 16, Episode 1

Well yesterday was the premiere of the new season of Project Runway! It’s season 16 and I have been with Project Runway since it has began. A very long time. I love it because it is so creative and there are so many good designers in the series who deserve the chance to be the winner. Last night they had the ‘red carpet’ challenge where they had to incorporate themselves with the design. Another turn for this season is that they are not using one size fits all models. They are using plus-sized, medium, thin, etc… I was very happy. Not all designers were, but you have to work with all types of women because not all women are the same size. So the show is sending a positive vibe, in my opinion, to those out there of women and their bodies. I was impressed with a lot of the looks. Some I was confused and some I was like ‘what the hell?!’ The person who went home this week was ChaCha. He seems to be more of a kids designer than a designer for women. He had a design that was a mess. Some women may like his type of designs, but I think he would be a great kids designer with his ideas. Anyway, that’s my thoughts for now. I will be posting again next week. Talk soon.
