Poppies and other stuff

I just wanted to post the pictures of the poppies I took the weekend before last. Hope you enjoy.


Priorities

I’m sorry to stop when I’m almost a quarter of the way through this year’s blogging project but I must do what I must do if I want to hit my goals for this year. I don’t need to worry about blogging on a daily basis. I’d rather spend the little energy I have left […]


Day 72

Don’t forget to turn your clocks forward 1 hour.


Day 71

I haven’t been feeling well lately. I think it’s the constant change in weather that has everybody’s sinuses going wackadoo. I know quite a few people with pneumonia. I’m trying to stay far, far away from them too because I don’t want to get sick. I’m very anxious to get my taxes done. I still […]


Surprising

I’ve never written any serious posts about our President. I remember a conversation I heard while deployed to Afghanistan. I group of 30 something black men were discussing Obama’s chances at the Oval Office. One in particular commented Obama didn’t have a chance of being elected because he’s married to a black woman. Michelle, is […]


Peace


Aches

I went to crossfit again tonight. I had fun. I still don’t like working out. Why do people torture themselves? My body aches! At least crossfit is short (but intense). The only thing worse than working out, is working out for hours. I wish I had more to blog about but I’m tired and I […]


More rain

I like the rain we’ve been getting. It comes and goes but never stays for days at a time. That’s the one thing I like about the rainy season in California. I remember the monsoon season in Korea. Once the rain started, it never seemed to stop. It made living difficult because the buildings I […]


Calling it a night

I don’t feel like blogging. I’ll try to blog about something worthwhile tomorrow. I need to get to bed.


Uneventful day

I didn’t do much today except go to the Toastmasters contest. I have four speeches left and I can’t wait to finish as I will have more time to work on other things that are more important. It seemed to rain all day today. The rain always makes me a little depressed. I came home […]


Crossfit

I went to crossfit tonight. I’m exhausted. I didn’t realize how intense it was going to be. I’m not sure that’s what I want to do. I don’t want to commit myself to it because I want to keep my schedule as free as possible and hate the idea of tying up 3 to 4 […]


Blogging

At the moment, I don’t feel like blogging. I think I picked the wrong year to do another 365 project. I just feel like reading. I finished reading Am I Making Myself Clear? Good read. If you’ve read Dale Carnagie’s book, How to Win Friends and Influence People or Frank Betzger’s How I Raised Myself […]


Early night

I’m going to make this an early night. I have to catch up on some of my reading. I’m three days behind reading Numbers. I have to tell you, after Exodus, it seems to go all down hill. The Old Testament is really hard to read. I also need to make an appointment to get […]


Hair blues: the workout

I was invited to go cross training today but turned it down because today is Tuesday and I just washed my hair and don’t feel like being bothered with washing it until Friday. I’ve been thinking a lot about my hair lately and how much time I spend on it when I do put effort […]


Does size matter?

When I keep hearing people say they don’t like large churches, I’m left speechless. Here’s my thoughts on this. I attend a large church and I have to admit, the size did intrigue me. If you understand the basics of Christianity, you’ll understand why I’m puzzled that some people prefer small churches. Jesus tells eleven […]


Self improvement

No matter how much I try improve myself, I find new things I need to work on. Forgiveness is one of them. Patience is another. I understand the process of improvement is a recurring process, but I would like to see the results of the things I’m doing. See why I need patience? I need […]


In Los Angeles

If this post has posted, it means I didn’t get home in time to blog. Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you. I know you just love reading my blog on a Saturday night. Now, get a life. You shouldn’t be reading my blog on a Saturday night! You should be having fun! […]


Hair blues

I hate the process I have to go through after washing my hair. Nothing sends me into a hair funk like having to blow dry my hair and then flat ironing it. I just want to let my hair be. I’ve been thinking a lot about Sisterlocks lately, mostly because I’m tired of my hair […]


Romantic Mystery

I got the lamest fortune cookie from Panda Express today. I can’t figure out what it means. What is a ‘romantic mystery’? What is it? Is it a book or a person? What? I don’t take fortune cookies seriously, but when everyone in your life tries to blow out your light, the message on a […]


Forgetfulness

I seem to be unable to remember a lot of things. For example, I had a really great post in mind for tonight but now I can’t remember. I know it was really good too. Geez. If only I could remember. I’ll probably think about it again when I don’t have pen and paper or […]


What I’m Reading

I’m an avid reader. There’s nothing better than reading a good book. For the past year, I’ve been reading books on business, relationships, and finance. My reading interests have everything to do with my business. I’m new to business, I enjoyed learning finance in school, and I happen to not be so good at relationships. […]


Marriage

Someone I was friends with in high school contacted me.  She’s married now, which is why I didn’t recognize her name at all. I love hearing about people getting married because for a split second, I can see myself married. And then I’m snapped back into reality. Getting married isn’t top priority on my To-Do […]


Day 52

I don’t feel like blogging. Sometimes blogging everyday sucks. I need to get done with my expenditures list.


What?

I took my mom out to dinner last night and we got to talking about our businesses. I just want to get to the point as I don’t feel like blogging all night long, but my mom said she likes having unprofitable businesses for the tax write offs. WTF? I don’t want to keep my […]
