Wow its been  3 months exactly since my last post but Ive been really Busy working 2 jobs(one I just recently quit) and trying to figure out what I want to do in my life and in which direction I want to take it...I have been in limbo and put my education on hold for a year while I decided what kind of career I envision for myself, before taking  the walk down a path I would later regret...

And that included  switching my major from Finance to Criminal Justice/Public Policy...which im ecstatic to explore.....although it means having to start the majority of my pre major courses over and probably delaying my graduation another year, but its all worth it...

always wanted to be a lawyer, I remember sitting in my 5th  grade Art class, and the teacher asked us to draw out our life in 20 years and what our professions would be...mine was a picture of me standing in front of a home with me holding a law degree...So I have decided this is what I want to do with my life..so I can one day become  a  Prosecutor or maybe even a Judge... which would kinda rock...


After the fall semester I have set my sights on these 5 schools for Law Degree

1.USC
2.SMU
3.Pepperdine
4.TCU
5.UCLA
6.Yale Law School
7.UC-Berkeley


And in that order...it most likely will Be USC but I definitely wont rule out any other decisions.....After 3 years of being in school I was beginning to get a bit bored ...But changing my major has made me all excited about school again!



Yale...

k...k  Im pushing it but  anything is possible and according to "The Secret" you have to say it to make it happen and dammit im saying it..



IM GOING TO YLS FOR MY LAW DEGREE..yezzir

Whoa Today was prob the best day of my life....so far... today while I was  in Beverly Hills shopping at Niketown on Rodeo....(actually returning a $150 pair of Nike's in favor on something less expensive...settled on $85 pair of Nike shoes instead)....as Im leaving NikeTown walking across the street to Subway...(not really wanting to eat there, but do because its convenient and the place I wanted to go to was out of the way)...

A Black Escalade pulls up beside me, and I immediately knew that it was a celebrity..mainly because noone but celebs are chauffered around in those type of Escalades and not too many ppl drive escalades in LA...I dont know why celebs use those bc its so obvious

The first person to pop out of the car, was a black guy...hmmm..noone special(turns out he is a bodyguard), he was sitting in the passenger side, he then opens the back passenger door..out pops A celebrity assistant----one I know very well, because her cousin/client is one of my fav artists...My mouth dropped in disbelief because If thats the PA to the person I think it is, then the person I think it is has to be in the car.. as I anxiously wait for who I think it is to get out of the car, The driver hops out and opens the other back door...out pops a 25-ish white guy with a video camera, (and what seemed like an eternity---the last person to step foot out of the car..was ............










NONE OTHER THAN BEYONCE GISELLE KNOWLES!!!....I dropped my Mutha effin mouth and begin to shake as she fastly brisked into the salon next to me( Damone Roberts: Eyebrow Waxing, Body waxing, & Makeup Salon) 

I couldnt believe it, I was so effin pissed that I didnt have my camera( Dont mention that Bitch ass camera either...lost it back in December @ UCLA, someone found it and left me a # where I could reach them, but long story short..I ended up losing that too)

Anyways I remember I had my sidekick 3, even though the pics come out grainy as hell...AND WHAT HAPPENED..my damn battery was low....wouldnt let me take any pics....So I wait for 15 mins waiting for Bey & her cousin to emerge from the shop while the bodyguard and white guy stand out side...Finallly the black escalade swirves around the corner..out walks Beyonce and her cousin Angie once again Without looking anywhere but destination escalade..as she enters the door I yell:

"Hi BEYONCE!!"

She responds: "Hi"


Waves and they jet off down Wilshire Blvd...If I had my car I would have followed them... like a stalker and prob be arrested. haha

Hillary cClinton just anouned bid to join the 2008 Presidnetial whitehouse race....Im excited because she has everything it takes...and America is fed up of the Dubya Tenure which is the reason the dems had a landslide  winning victory in the Senate and HR....This is our chance to have the first woman President ever!!..But will America vote for a woman Prez...esp those racists and biggots mainly from the South?


Also in legendary order..Barrack Obama is also trying to gain the Democratic Ticket...hmmm..It would be great because he would be the first Black Prez...I would love to see either of them win, but my guess is Hillary is gonna get the Democratic Party Nom...and hopefully she'll ask Barrack to join her campaign...maybe?...2008..a year of firsts or defeat?


Or Is America not ready for neither Black or Woman President?


I dont think we are...but we can all dream...but this could be the kind of race where every american pulls out all stops and everyone gets interested in voting...for or against...

There has been a new addition to my family..and this one is much improved and hella better than its predecessor
and $50 cheaper with the same GB





As you may know I lost my last ipod nano at the airport last year....








At the time I lost It, it  eventually ended up looking like this...with only half of the screen showing and the rotator sometimes got stuck mid rotate




Because of this...and thousands of customers complaining of the cheap quality, Apple went back into the lab and produced an Ipod with much better quality and theyve earned my dollar back....

Why does this always happen to me....Everytime I go somewhere a tittie pop out...First at the age of 16 and more frequently in Santa Monica...All I see are titties everywhere...not the standard titties but baby milking titties..


Why do women have to breastfeed in public?.. I mean I know its human nature and all and breast milk may be more beneficial to the children..BUT when youre in public bring that nigga a bottle of milk...do that other ish in private.....
.
Me of all ppl should want to get a glimpse, but not no droopy lactaiding titties...no way...
