What do you worry about?

Standard

Started August 14th……

I have been extremely worried about my next move. While I am cool on the outside, on the inside the Jameelionaire within is screaming INCOME AUTO PILOT HOE! I need to find a way to make the money I am destined to make. Not that I am obsessed with making money. I am obsessed with being able to live a fulfilling life the way I want to live it and being in control of my destiny.

As a parent, I don’t have many worries where my children are concerned. In 2 years my daughter will be headed to middle school and I want her to be ok with making new friends< participating in after school clubs and groups, etc. We are in the process of trying to figure out where we can live in the Virginia Highlands. Yes, it is ambitious because Virginia Highlands is one of the most expensive places to live in the Metro Atlanta area.

Okay, update. No longer interested in moving to the VH, my daughter is now at a Magnet school that I am very comfortable with.

To Further the Education, Or Not… That is the Question.

Standard

I have always prided myself on my ambitious education goals. First there was law school, then phd program in education, masters in public administration, masters in education, paralegal certification and law school again.
But now….. there’s kind of just a big, fat, blur. I think really hard about the things I’d like to do, and sometimes I try to visualize it. (Speaking of visualize, I now take a brief recess to look that up….. Okay it was helpful.) Anyways, in trying to visualize the new direction for my life, I often end up squinting my eyes, which is a direct implication that I may need visualization lenses because the view is JUST that foggy.
Last week Tuesday, it was paralegal school. I even filled out an application for Clayton State. Now don’t get me wrong, business and entrepreneurship will still go on. But my mind will not allow me to accept the idea of stopping at a bachelors degree.
Sooooo, now higher education is no longer seen as the next step in my ladder. It is a concrete must have. Like a good sleek coat, a sheek wallet, a stylish scarf and a sexy pair of boots.
For the past….. day or so. I have been looking at MBA programs. Ughhhhh…. I hate the idea of taking accounting, statistics, economics. I am just not that into official money business classes. But, in the long run it’ll help me not only in HR, but in my personal business as well. But stay tuned….. next week it may be acting classes. Just kidding…. but not if I can land a deal 🙂

Made for me TV: Awkward Black Girl

Standard

Okay so, I am that black chick who loves Larry David. I think he is absolutely hilarious. I also love Sex and the City, which isn’t too odd. But lastly, The Office is funny as hell.

Okay so, I heard about Awkward Black Girl twice before I actually checked it out on youtube and it was literally love at first sight.That show was made for ME!

Not that I can relate to her directly. NO. We don’t share any of the same interests, passions, hobbies or likes. But, we share the same cynicism, humor and BRAIN. For chrissakes, it is the funniest thing that I have watched in a MINUTE!

Now I am not going to fall into the timeless habit of naming EVERYTHING I love about ALL the episodes that I have watched, but what I will say is that the show speaks for itself.
