Never be Afraid to Dream in Color

Today I was inspired by me. 
I had the courageous audacity to be myself. 
Today I didn't wipe away my mint green polish cause I was scared it was too bright,
but I wore orange, the brightest orange I could find. 
I walked into the room with a fierce attitude, 
"If my orange is to bright then it is not meant for me to be here." 
Today the words I spoke were fuchsia, intriguing with clear and apparent intentions. 
My eyes sparkled of determination red because I could see the glory,
and like a bob cat there was no backing down or turning around. 
My presence was purple and gold cause I walk in the royalty of God and like the Proverbs 31 woman I could smile at the future because I throw my accomplishments in the bag of grace. 
Today, I did more than dream in color, I lived it.

Graduation is in 33 Days, Whats Next?

  • "What are you doing after graduation?"
  •  "Do you have a job lined up?"
Yes the two questions graduating seniors hate the most. (Unless you've had a job since December and graduates hate you even more for bragging about it)
No too long ago, (actually it was about 2 weeks ago) I had a life epiphany. These epiphanies come to me often and in a spontaneous way. The first was when I wanted to go to Peru for Alternative Spring Break which turned out to be one of the most memorable weeks of my life.

The second was my decision to do a semester in London, I don't think life could have gotten more exhilerating and spontaneous then that semester. Now as graduation is rapidly approaching I thought to myself, do I really want to go straight into a job where I will have to work everyday with minimal vacation for 8 to 9 hours a day? I don't think I'm ready for that yet. So I said to myself how about teach English in Korea for a year!

So that is the plan, teach english in Korea and become a world traveler for at least a year or two, then eventually I can settle down and have a normal job. I;m young and vibrant and use to being broke so I might as well enjoy the world God has created right. I officially turned in my background check to begin the process  and can start sending out my resume to schools.
Seoul, Korea

What spontaneous decisions or epiphanies have you had?

Amazing Prayer

Yesterday I went to a Luncheon for my sorority and it is always wonderful fellowshipping with such wonderful women. The prayer that was said before the meal really lingered with me and I just wanted to bestow it upon you. This goes to show that anything is possible with him who gives us strength.

I pray God remembers you like Noah,
favors you like Moses,
honor you like Mary,
fight for you like the Israelites,
prosper you like Isaac,
promote you like Joseph,
intervene for you like Esther,
protect you like Daniel,
use you like Paul,
heal you likeNaaman,
answer you like Elijah,
anoint you like David,
and keep you safe like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego!

Commemorating Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston   -   Concert in Central Park ...Whitney Houston - Concert in Central Park / Good Morning America 2009 (Photo credit: asterix611)

I am shock and in disbelief on so many levels. Last night I was sitting at the table having a girls night when someone checked their phone and the first facebook status, and topic of discussion on twitter was "Whitney Houston Age 48 dies today." My heart dropped because I thought about how she has influenced me personally. As a dark skin black young girl she gave me strength and through her beauty and radiance I felt accepted.

I remember when Prince of Egypt came out and the soundtrack with Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston Blew me away; Or Count on Me through her Waiting Exhale soundtrack let me know how a real friend should be. On numerous occasions I would attempt to belt out songs with the same enthusiasm and heartfelt intensity. This record breaking Award winning, world renown artists has touched many lives and inspired many singers today. So I would like to commemorate the life she led that through her we were all able to experience the explicit power of her presence.

London Nights and DC mornings

Hello Readers,

It has been a while since I made a post and there is no real excuse for my absence other then procrastination of "I'll do it later" which turned into months later. Well I am back in the Good o'l US of A for my last semester of undergraduate education. After all my complaining of missing home in the states I am missing London and the people I met more then ever. Shopping here just does not compare and the things I would do for some caramel digestives are absolutely insane. So here is to the nights I dream of London and the mornings I wake up in DC.

Cheers <3

Its Christmas Time in London

I have made it back to America after a blissful 3 months of studying abroad in London and traveling all through Europe. The feeling of leaving a beautiful city I have come to love and thoroughly enjoy to return home is bitter sweet. I will miss living in the Mad House and working with Bryan Morel PR but it was a worth while experience I will never forget. I have been super busy since I have come home and haven't been able to blog about my last few moments in London so here it goes...

Its Christmas time in London and the weather is starting cool and the Christmas lights on Oxford street are coming alive. I had to work that day but my office is on Reagent street so I could hear the Christmas Joy outside. At 5:55 we all rushed out to see Kelly Clarkson Perform and watch them push the button. My friend Alyse came down to meet me after work and we walked down the streets singing Christmas songs with the crowd and headed to the Pub to enjoy the festivities.

For that moment I felt like a Londoner and I loved it. I loved the excitement of the holiday season which made the 3pm darkness feel a little brighter under the festive lights. My last days in London are near and I know I will miss it here.

You were everything, everything that I wanted...

For some reason this song has been stuck in my mind all day. I think all females can resonate with this old Avril Lavigne Happy Ending Moment. This is for all those moments that we cherished but have now faded away.....But for me, I will keep my Happy Ending.
