21 Day Challenge 

Hey guys!

For the last 2 weeks, I’ve been doing this challenge called, “Lose your gutt, keep that butt”.  This is the last week and I mean I’m pooped lol.  You hear Me? I feel the difference in my body though but I KNOW I need MORE than 21 days of working out. So far, its been good.  My thighs don’t rub as much.  My “back end” is more rounded.  My clothes are fitting better and I’m slightly a bit more flexible. I just waiting for my stomach to start performing its disappearing act. 

It’s a work in progress I know but I gotta be 2 piece ready before my birthday in August. 

Time for bed.

Ttyl!

Betty Shelby verdict 

What else is new? I am NOT surprised by this.  People of color, especially men of color have never truly been seen as a human being.  They have always been portrayed as dangerous.  To take that man’s life with no remorse shows how evil some people in uniform are.  Stop using the excuse that you felt your life was in danger. Please. Videos prove otherwise.  I’m so sick and tired of this.  God has a plan for every last one of you that think taking a life is OK.  Insulting my intelligence with this bigoted ignorance and blatant disrespect of the law and the Lord’s law will have its time at judgment day.

If people really wanted to know the truth they would READ!!! What group of people has done the most damage to different cultures and races? What group took land from Natives that were already here? Who glorifies and supports gentrification?  How many times has a person of color shot up a school? People of color aren’t perfect by no means.  None of us are perfect.  To sit there and justify the actions of ALL these people that murdered, abused their power, and lied to keep from being reprimanded makes you accountable as well.  

Once things start to happen in your life and you cannot understand why so many things are going wrong; you ask “why you”? “What did I do to deserve this?”… think of when you could have stood up for what’s right and you let it continue OR you knew you took that person’s life and you weren’t made unaccountable.  This is what you deserve and more maybe on the way.

This is why the law will NEVER be trusted by people of color.  NEVER!!!

NSLS

NSLS stands for National Society of Leadership and Success.

In order to be invited into this society, you have to have excellent academics or great leadership skills.  I was invited to join this society back in January for my academics (3.60 GPA).  YAY!!!  I became a member when I accepted the invitation.  In order to be inducted into the society, I had to do a certain number of steps (orientation, leadership training, etc). Induction opens up every benefit that the society offers from mentors, jobs, events, and on. Last Saturday, I completed my last step for induction and I’m so happy.  I’m hoping this will open doors for me and get me into the role that I desire most.

Quick tidbits for those that don’t know:

School: Keller Graduate School of Management (DeVry) – MBA program 

Major: Business Administration (which is also what I got in Undergrad)

Focus: Marketing 

So, if you’re in school and the school has a chapter of the society, become a member.  It’ll help you see who are you are as a person and leader and connect you with others with like minds.

Long Grove Chocolate Festival

The Long Grove Chocolate fest was AWESOME on this gorgeous day.  I cannot believe that this was the 1st time I’ve attended.  We had some of the following: 
Chocolate covered cheesecake
Chocolate covered bananas
Chocolate covered strawberries kabobs
Chocolate cream puffs

Of course,  we had to eat something beforehand so we had cheese fries,  pulled turkey loaded nachos, chicken strips, and Stella’s.  Too bad it is only 1 weekend a year.
