October 2011

hey loves!

again, sorry i've been mia for a minute.
so this month, finally got my own place.
wooo go me!
first time living on my own, outside of the campus dorms.
gorgeous house. i love it.
living with 2 strangers.
they haven't killed me yet.

still looking for a job.......................... ugh.
i've been holding out and waiting to hear back from these jobs i've applied to that i'd actually enjoy.
cause i really want to enjoy my job...
work--it's something most of us have to do for a huge chunk of our lives.
so many people dread their job.
i'm not trying to be one of those people.
life is too short to waste time doing something you cannot stand.
why not do what you love?
& if it's what you love, it's not work.
& that's what i'm really aiming for.
but times a tickin and i really need something to happen--SOON.
let us pray someone hires me--SOON.
cause rent isn't free.

which i'd like to rant about real quick.
so why does everyone want a free photoshoot?
lately it's been an obnoxious occurrence.
no boo, that's not happening...
i'm not even money hungry like that. at all.
i'd help if i could ya know?
but who's gonna pay for this crib? my food? my gas?
clearly not you...
the struggle is real.
& i'm just trying to survive.
so you should understand.

i digress! :)

other than that, i've been bumming.
i should really take advantage of this free time i've had.
doubt it's gonna be like this for long.

gonna try to get back to posting again.
but my laptop has been a pain. 
nothing new there.

hope all is well with you guys.

Inspirational Words Of Wisdom From Will Smith

 hello september! i see this being a good month. i will speak it into existence! august wasn't that exciting for me since i've been stressing to get a job and well, the struggle is real. i feel so much responsibility and pressure right now to get a job and get my career going because of a lot of financial issues. college loans are gonna kick in soon, and it really freaks me out because i know my parents are working super hard, but it's barely enough to cover the expenses of life! so i've been kinda down in my spirits. i've been applying everywhere it seems, and nothing is really coming through. it's just frustrating because i knowww i'm more than capable of these jobs! & i'll be honest, i'm glad i graduated, but i'm a little lost as to what's next. i've lived a pretty structured life most of my life, so it's kinda hard for me to let go sometimes. but i realize the unknown can be a beautiful thing. full of possibilities, and that's what i'm focusing on. it's only the beginning. so i shall keep applying like a maniac and pray something good will come along. i know it's coming! i just need to be a wee bit more patient! that's always been an issue of mine! haha.

anyways enough blabbing, because i needed inspiration, i went back and watched this. 
this video is ALWAYS as inspiring as it was the first time i saw it, if not more.
if you haven't seen it, you MUST! trust me. i've been meaning to post this for agessss.
this is quite possibly 10 minutes that could change your entire outlook on life.

greatness truly exists in all of us. 

we make the situation more complex than it has to be.

while the other guy is sleeping, i'm working. while the other guy is eating, i'm working.

dedicate yourself to being better every single day.

if you're going to be here, then there's a necessity to make a difference.

i want to do good. i want the world to be better because i was here.

if you're not making someone else's life better, then you are wasting your time. your life will become better by making other lives better.

the first step before anyone else in the world believes it is you have to believe it.

what's the point in being realistic? it's unrealistic to walk in a room and flip a switch and lights come on. fortunately, edison didn't think so.   

make a choice. you just decide what it's gonna be, who you're gonna be, how you're gonna do it. just decide, and from that point, the universe is going to get out your way.

don't ever let somebody tell you you can't do something. you got a dream, you gotta protect it.  people can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. you want something, go get it. period.

i agree 125%.
now i need to go work on being less realistic!
ah, i love will smith so much. such an inspiration.

cool! that's gotta be insane!! me next!

The Way Bobby Sees It

The Way Bobby Sees It is a gripping documentary about Bobby McMullen, a competitive mountain biker on a mission to race the most demanding downhill course in the country. Adding to the difficulty: Bobby is legally blind.

With the help of a guide and a rigorous training schedule, Bobby is determined to race his bike down a course riddled with obstacles and flanked by steep, life-threatening cliffs. But, the racecourse isn't the only challenge in Bobby's life. Between thrills, spills and jaw dropping helmet camera footage, we see how Bobby uses humor, determination, and unshakeable optimism to battle adversity - both on and off the bike.

i love documentaries. if you have the time, you should watch this. it's truly an inspirational story. 
simple things like our vision or our hearing. are you thankful for it every single day? 
imagine if it was all taken away... i couldn't imagine.

pretty dope!

honestly, i feel like today is more my mom's day than anything. if you only knew what she went through to bring me here. sometimes i forget that on august 9, 1989, i almost didn't make it and was nothing but a miracle. which only means one thing: imma own this life. i am so thankful to have made it to 22. so today, i'm going to spend the entire day with the person that made it all possible.

The Social Tattoo Project

today, i was introduced to the social tattoo project by a friend of mine on twitter.
pretty interesting idea.

check it out!

i like to say tattoos are a work of art.
& a lot of people have tattoos of just about anything you can imagine these days.
especially if you are someone that loves getting tattoos...
why not get a tattoo of something important to show that you care about world issues?
& i like the part where you don't know what you're getting... a little risky.
but at least you know it's not gonna be something foolish like big bird or tweety bird or a frog... :)
(sorry if you have any of the mentioned tats).

pretty cool.
spread the word.

learn more about the social tattoo project on their website!
follow @social_tattoo.

if you don't download this, at least listen to track 11. gotta love justin bieber.
