Anyway today i had to restore my ipod, its actually syncing right now, i didn't realize how many songs i have on it..and there is still space left. Anyway lately i have been thinking about some stuff that's happened in my life, and this ipod situation made me automatically think about starting over..well maybe not over...but starting fresh.
Basically everything happens for a reason..my ipod was due for clean up anyway..and the events that happen in my life, were also meant to happen. I can no longer dwell on the past, and give those people too much credit for the significant (or lack thereof) role they play, or played in my life. The way i see it is, if you wanted or want to be in my life...then you would be.
I was on facebook the other day, and my friend had a comment that kinda went like this. "Friendship or Love" -- i dont think you can have a friendship without love..its just that simple..i love my friends flaws and all..but im not IN love with them. lol i have never been IN love..i dont know if i believe in love anymore besides the love i have for my friends and my family. Lately i have been seeing and hearing alot about this "Love" thingg..and quite frankly......... lol quite franklyy. LOL
they always said the first step is admitting you have a problem, i guess i guess this is my cry for some help because i do indeed has a serious problem.
i shop even when i dont have money, i would rather buy a pair of shoes than a text book that is NEEDED at school (not that i have done that), but you get my drift. Not only do i live in the mall, i have now turned to online shopping...damn you credit card, damn you.I have yet to purchase anything, but i sure have a big list of things i will eventually add to my collection.
so with that being said. someone PLEASE help me .
im holding out on watching the Confessions of a Shopaholic movie, because im afraid of what i might see. from reading the book, i know homegirl has bills up the wazoo, some she doesnt even know exsist...that CANNOT be me, EVER....EVER lol. im in school for a reason..i KNOW im going to be successful and well off.. so there is NO need to worry......YET, is there?
Ps. Thx Rello for getting me addicted!

Vivien Theodore Thomas (August 29, 1910 – November 26, 1985) he was an African- American Cardiologist. I first learned about him in the summer of 2006 when i participated in a Summer Mentorship Program at the University of Toronto when I thought i wanted to be a "cardiologist". He was the man who found the appropriate stitching concept for sewing the ventricles located in the hear. If you know anything about science and biology, the heart has 2 valves, one for oxygenated blood and the other for deoxygenated blood. ( sorry its my fascination of the human heart that i have.) but yes, Mr. Thomas found the correct procedure for curing the "blue baby". These were babies that were born that were not getting enough oxygen in to their blood to circulate through their bodies thus causing them to turn blue because of the blue blood that had not received oxygen. Nonetheless, Dr. Vivian Thomas at first was not recognized for his work, why? His physical appearance gives a simple answer. He was later given recognition after having to perform the surgery for his head cardiologist. We remember him through black history month as a successful African- American man that made a name for his self in a time of doubt, which was African - American could not compare at the time to the capabilities of the white male. Sorry for those who decided to read this, I just remembered to post someone today and its past my bed time. So I hope you read more about Dr. Vivian Thomas, there was actually a movie made inspired of his life and what he did with it. It is called "Something the Lord Made"; starring Mos Def ( Vivian Thomas) , Alan Rickman and Gabrielle Union.

Now that it is Black History month, African- Americans are celebrating it in their own separate ways. To show our appreciation to historical African - Americans who made an impact for Black History we will post every day, a very inspirational individual and a mini biography on who they are what they did, and what they continue to aspire to do. You may not know this individual but first up is Chuck Berry.
Born in St Louis Missouri Berry was the fourth child in a family of six. Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry was born October 18, 1926. He is an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Chuck Berry is an influential figure and one of the pioneers of rock and roll. He is its greatest songwriter, the main shaper of its instrumental voice, one of its greatest guitarists, and one of its greatest performers.
Berry's initial success was tempered by the hard reality of showbusiness. The copyright for "Maybellene" contained the names of Alan Freed and Russ Fratto as well as Berry's; while Freed's name on the song ensured airplay, it also reduced Berry's royalty payments. Additionally, Berry discovered that his first road manager, Teddy Reig, was pocketing money from his live appearances. Learning from these initial pitfalls, Berry realized that self-sufficiency and independence were keys to long term survival in the business, and from this point on, he became determined to take charge of his own affairs, sowing the seeds for the later allegations of his being difficult to work with.

I'm kind of tired of sitting around saying to myself "oh, i could have done that" or "i sooo thought of that." So I'm actually going to do something about it, or at least try to. We'll see how that goes, gotta have faith.
Anyway i was just surfing the net, and got inspired....with that being said I'm going to go end some out some emails. LOL
