THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT ….

19 Jun

Hello!!

I went to Las Vegas with my family two weeks ago it was a well needed vacation. There are so many fun things to do, so Christians don’t worry…you don’t have to gamble to have fun!

I’ve been very busy lately with a full time job (that involves playing with kids so, it is the perfect summer job…kids are so cute and fun!), taking a college summer class (nutrition) for nursing, and keeping up with piano and music theory. And most importantly, twice a week I have Japanese tutoring…

Speaking of Japanese leads me to my really big announcement that I’ve been hinting at for the past few months.

I’M GOING TO JAPAN!!!!!

Yep, you’ve read right. I’m going to Japan. I’ll be there for a whole semester so, about 4 months.

I was going to tell you my back story and how much struggle and perseverance it took for me to accomplish this dream of mine, but I’ll save that for another post because it goes a lot deeper than just going to Japan and it requires some vulnerability on my part. It might be a private post.

So, as I embark and prepare for this new journey along with everything else coming up in these next few months, I kindly ask for your prayers:

  • God’s guidance and His will to be done
  • That I can be a light for Christ in a primarily atheistic and Buddhist/Shinto country
  • That as I continue to study the Japanese language, that new study habits and techniques open up to me
  • I do well in my nutrition class and preparation for my nursing career
  • That my family is safe and won’t stress too much while I’m in Japan

God, you know the desires in my heart, but above all else, let your will be done. Amen.

I’m still alive…

5 May

Whew!

Next week is finals week and I have to finish a lab report for human physiology!!

I have two exciting announcements to share, but I’ll only share one (the other one is really big so, I’m going to wait for that one).

I’m going to Las Vegas and San Diego (again) with the family!!

I’m so looking forward to a vacation and once exams are over, I’m going to update a new post on “A New Shade of Feminine,” my feminity blog for black women (but other women are welcome as well).

Expect more frequent posts in the future.

I’m Getting Married at 22 and Apparently That Upsets People on the Internet

15 Apr Featured Image -- 1222

lovelyleblanc7:

Interesting perspective. I don’t think 22 is that young, but it is refreshing to see millenials get married so young and actually look at marriage in a positive light.
I haven’t even reached 20 years old yet and I’ve already seen peers my age engaged or married.

God bless them!

A few years ago, I was in a pretty low place. Like, Garth Brooks kind of low place. I was your average college student, facing the stress and rigor of attending school full-time, working, attempting to be social, and trying to swim my way out of an abusive relationship. I was stuck there, in a relationship with someone who I thought I was in love with, who I thought was my soul mate, who I thought would one day tie our daughter’s shoes on her first day of school. I was so convinced that he was the source of my happiness, the one person who really understood me, and the person I would be with forever, that I was blind to his constant manipulation and made excuses for his aggression. One day – and to this day I’m still lost as to how…

Our generation did not invent political correctness, but we can fight it

This is a great post. Be prepared to have your thoughts challenged :)

Political correctness is not a new phenomenon. The fact is that many dangerous questions are currently walled off by the baby boomers who dominate our universities (and large sectors of the media). Today’s culture war likes to scapegoat young people for the rise of the illiberal Left, but the responsibility really lies with the generation who came before us.

Each one of us has the ability to generate a hypothesis. A hypothesis simply comes from asking a question about the world and then using our imaginations to answer it. Almost every advance in human history first came from a person willing to look at the world, or the status quo, from a different angle. But if questions and hypotheses are going to have any impact they must be articulated. Questions have to come out of our minds and into the world around us.

The problem with P.C. is that it…

Merry Christmas!

25 Dec

It has been a while and I’ve been home for about two weeks now.

I want to thank God for getting me through my final exams and this semester. Since my classes are filled with science, philosophy, and math, they are difficult.

But He got me through. :)

When I arrived home I was just so happy to be done and finally able to spend time with my family.

Not to mention starting January, I will begin another internship at a prestigious clinic. Sometimes I doubt if I really want to have a health profession, if the late night studying and lack of sleep with bountifulness of stress is really worth it.

But it is, if this is God’s will.

I just thank God that He has gotten me through, my family is safe, and I just pray that everyone has a happy Christmas.

Merry Christmas! :)

Some Privacy Settings Will Soon Be Changed

9 Oct

Hello,

Due to my (sometimes) controversial posts, I’m contemplating on whether or not I should change my blog to private or just password protect some of my posts.

I will most likely go with the later.

This is not because I’m afraid of opposing opinions or views, but because I want to protect my identity when it comes to these type of posts.

As you know, liberals can be very vicious and don’t have any qualms butting in and ruining somebody’s livelihood. I’m just trying to protect my future.

Haha

Anyway, just expect to see some changes in a few days (or hours).
