‘War on Ebola’

So, this guy thought it was cool to just stop in the middle of boarding to pull out his “War on Ebola” magazine and put it in my face or something. I get it, it’s a serious disease but come on people, let us be real here. Ebola is not a new disease, it is not the end of the world. Face it, we have to be cautious at all times, always, not just when a disease pops up.
There is no need to be extra and it should be an excuse to treat people like crap. We get it, you wanna be safe, but spare us, well, spare me the ‘extraness’, the drama. Stop picking when and where to use sanitary precautions. Always be aware, alert and cautious.

Such a Lost!

Yeah, I know I am late but I can’t let this pass without remembering this great, extremely funny and talented man that we recently lost- Mr. Robin Williams. He was such a great character and he made all of us laugh and we cannot deny we love him. His talents and great personality, as we have seen on TV for the most of us (didn’t personally know him), will always be with us. He will always be remembered. So, let us remember this great man and celebrate his greatest accomplishments.

Robin Williams

May he Rest In Peace!!!

Afraid to Care!

Now that I have actually put that in writing, I realize how sad it really is.  So, tonight I want to talk a little about some of us who tend to be so overprotective of our heart, feelings and well-being. In fear of getting hurt, we feel like it is best to just shut down sometimes and we try to force ourselves to not care. I have come to realize that the more I force and remind myself that I don’t care, the more I actually care. That is very true because what we fail to remember is that we cannot possibly control our feelings.
Caring is actually a great thing. I am not saying that it’s easy to do, but we must try our best to just let ourselves feel and care. Restraining yourself from one of the best things in life is like putting an end to your life. It’s not the worst thing that can happen to you.
I would be wrong to promise you that you won’t be deceived and hurt, but it’s all part of growing up. Those are lessons to which you should pay close attention because they will certainly help you in the future. Please, note that I am not encouraging anyone to go and allow themselves to get hurt left and right, up and down. There are situations you can definitely prevent or avoid, but there are also those you can do absolutely nothing about. You just have to let yourself live the best life you can live.
Believe me, I know for a fact that shutting down and pretending not to care is not the way to live. You are just choosing to live a “what if” life and that is not healthy. You can’t possibly expect to live a happy, healthy life wondering what could have been. So, stop shutting down and pretend, just let things be.

Healthier Living

imagesSo, I’m thinking about starting to live healthier now as it relates to food and my diet. I want to start eating healthier. I don’t eat much junk food but I tend to go very long with no food which is not very healthy. Also, I am starting to choose a healthier diet. In one of my classes, the teacher asked, what do I think about America’s overweight issue? Well, I have not noticed it much until then. So many are careless about what they eat and sometimes they just don’t know or cannot afford to care. Sometimes, I have people coming to me and complaining about their weight and all I can really say is if you are not happy with how you look or feel, only you can change it. Also, if you feel comfortable in your own skin, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise and just live your life. Still, try to live healthy so you can fully enjoy life.

Is Money Indispensable?

So, I am back …… and I just thought of something my pastor said the other day and it was so interesting and I thought it was worthy of sharing.

So, do you think that you need money in order to live a good life?

No, I don’t think so and quite frankly, I know so that money is not so vital to a good, decent and joyful life. While many of the great pleasures may be expensive, but you can live with what you have and be a happy person. My pastor said that, he did not want to spend too much but he wanted to spend some time with his family and he wanted to go out. So, he took them out and for less than $25, they had a great time. So, is money really that big of a deal? Not really, you don’t need all that money to really enjoy life. There are simpler and sometimes, better way to live fully and happily.

I learned at a very young age that money was not everything and I think God for that because I love living and enjoying it to the fullest. I learned to do so in very simple ways and I cherish what may be the littlest thing to some. Truth is, there is loving life and loving money which are very different. You can definitely have a great time with little money. It’s good to learn to live with what you have and make the best of it because I truly believe that when you have too much money than needed, it creates more problems ( I may be saying that because I may seriously broke, but hey).

Seriously guys, you can live large with what you have and those dear and close to you. Money is only a bonus and if only many of us would understand that, I bet life would be so much better.

Guy-Girl Friend

Hey there folks,

I have not been on here for a good while now. I have abandoned my blog because I have been tired and kind of busy. You know with school just ended and lack of sleep lately. I have just had to take a break and be a little lazy. But, I am back and ready to go for good this time. So here we go.

I have had a few experiences in the last couple of weeks and had conversations with a few people and many seem to be confused about a girl having a guy friend-that is just friend.  I, personally, have lots of male friends. Some are single, married, engaged or just in a relationship. I don’t care because they are just my friends. What most people do not understand is that we are in 2013, therefore not ever relationship has to be romantic and not everything is about sex or what not. I don’t look at my friends any other way than just my friends and I hope they don’t either. A girl can definitely befriend a guy with no intention of being anything other than regular friend, not friend with benefits, just friend like she can be with another girl.

Some people always say that most guy think about nothing other than sex but I always said that was untrue because I know guys who are respectful, mature and human enough. It is not always about romantic relationship. I have good male friends and I have had no problems with them. It’s not really about gender, it is more about who can you talk to and be yourself around, who can understand you and who genuinely cares about you. That person may be anyone from a girl to a guy. It’s a matter of respect. If a person is educated enough, he or she will know that there is no need for romance or sex between these two people. They can just be friends who genuinely care about each other.

It is quite sad to see some people cannot open their minds to see reality as it is, not as they want it to be. One must be so closed-minded to not be able to recognize that, indeed, a guy can be a good friend to a girl. I have so many guy friends and as most people would agree, once a guy is my friend, I never look at him in any romantic way and that is the same for a lot of people out there.

I just wanted to say that it is perfectly innocent for a girl to befriend a guy with no romantic intentions. This is the 21st century and we have to open our eyes as well as our minds to see the reality of things. Don’t be so closed-minded.
