Show Jelly Belly Some Love

I found love! Now there are a few edible sweets that I adore: cupcakes and jelly beans. Not any type of jelly beans but JELLY BELLY’S. I just love the different flavors, it’s like an adventure. You never know what you are going to get. I could actually eat Jelly Belly’s all day but I am pretty sure my dentist wouldn’t be too happy with me but otherwise it’s just pleasure! So, you should take some time and try Jelly Belly’s. Maybe you are having a party or a soiree and want to give out some favors…try handing out Jelly Belly’s they are to die for!

Haters/ By Maya Angelou

A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends all their time trying to make you look small so they can look tall. They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever good enough!

When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters...

That's why you have to be careful with whom you share your blessings and your dreams, because some folk can't handle seeing you blessed...

It's dangerous to be like somebody else... If God wanted you to be like somebody else, He would have given you what He gave them! Right? You never know what people have gone through to get what they have...

The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don't know my story...
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!

We've all got some haters among us!

Some people envy you because you can:
a) Have a relationship with God
b) Light up a room when you walk in
c) Start your own business
d) Tell a man/woman to hit the curb
(if he/she isn't about the right thing)
e) you are a strong person and don't let people run you over
f) you have a strong and loving marriage and they can't get in-between spouses to spoil it

Haters can't stand to see you happy.
Haters will never want to see you succeed.
Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be on our side (like some family and friends).

How do you handle your undercover haters?
You can handle these haters by:

1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are

2. Having a purpose to your life: Purpose does not
mean having a job. You can have a job and still be

A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be.
Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you.

3. By remembering that what you have is by divine
prerogative and not human manipulation.

Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live...when its your time to leave this earth, you want to be able to say, 'I've lived my life and fulfilled my dreams, Now I'm ready to go HOME!

When God gives you favor, you can tell your haters, 'Don't look at me...Look at who is in charge of me...'

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

Magnificant Monday! Well Not So Much!

Magnificent Monday to all!! I hope you feel better than I do because I woke up this morning with a very sore throat and I feel horrible. Can you imagine suddenly being hit with the common cold or better yet the flu? I am taking everything you can possibly name that deals with cold symptoms. I MUST get better, I have a presentation for school and plus I have this thing called life that goes on!! So, I CANNOT stay like this for long! If anyone knows of any home remedies they want to share please do. FYI there is not enough time in the day for me to go to the doctor this week but if I am still feeling like this by next Monday, guess I will make that trip!!

Jones + Soda= Fun

I think of myself as a fun person and I every time I see a Jones Soda I think of fun! I don't know why but I just do! It's quite odd! However, I think if I ever get married I would want to have a few cases of Jones Soda on hand to give the wedding some color, some flavor and a little twist! Just looking at these soda pops brings a smile to my face. Now only, if I can just taste one---everything will be fine!!

Running A Marathon (Whew!)

I am running a marathon, well not really! But it sure feels like one, I am almost finished with this spring semester of graduate school and let me tell you--it was the worst! But I learned how to balance my time better, I did a lot of reading (slave narratives) ***zzzzzzzzzzzz***. No seriously, I had some good reads and some difficult reads. As I think back, Wild Seed by Octavia Butler was a complex read. I am a not into Sci-Fi or the supernatural--that's just not me!! But hey I got through it, I survived! But it's not over yet, I only have a two week break and I will be back to the books! While running my two year book marathon , I have to constantly tell myself :

The Work Dialogues: Coffee Hunt

This morning I wasn't able to get my Starbucks, I was running late and I had a meeting. So there are like six coffee makers in my building, but every pot have a different type of coffee, whether its a different flavor or strength. So since I am a Starbucks Junkie, I never drink the "office coffee" but I had no choice this morning. So while I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off, trying to find the perfect coffee in one out of the six pots. My co-worker stops me in the middle of my coffee hunt, the dialogue went a bit like this:

CO: Hey, do you really NEED coffee? I mean just drink some tea.

ME: Ummmm, but I don't want tea and yes this morning I WANT coffee.

CO: Well I have some GOOD tea on hand, that sure will GET you going!

ME: Oh! No, thanks!

CO: Why are you so BLAH, this morning, cheer up!

ME: (SMIRKING) I'm so BLAH, because I haven't had a good ole cup of Joe, now if you would excuse me--I NEED to go and find my coffee. Have a good day!

But I really wanted to say, I drink coffee because I am not a morning person OR BETTER YET:

Hate To Be Rude......BUT

LOL :) I find this very interesting for many reasons!

1. Don't you hate when you are having a wonderful day and people ruin it by telling you how bad their day is going!
2. People who feed off drama!
3. People who call and just start venting...ummmm NO HELLO or NOTHING!
4. People who air their "dirty" laundry over social media site, like Twitter!

Point is: let's be positive people or if you are having a bad day, it's okay to vent but think about it this way, things could be worse!

Make Me Smile

I am not that hard to please; all I need is a:

To brighten my day!
What's something simple that makes you smile

My Apologies

Dear Blogosphere,
I have not been a good blogger! I am ashamed of my neglience, I haven't post a blog in a few (since Thursday) days due to my inability to get anything done that involves pleasure, leisure or fun! With that being said graduate school has consumed my life in the worst way possible. But then I sit and think:

Life's A BLISS!!

Are You A Risk Taker?

I have so many thoughts going on in my head, all productive but they won’t go anywhere! You want to know why? Because I am afraid to act on them, I am pretty sure that some of you may have things you want to do but you maybe afraid of failing or not succeeding. Well it’s okay to be fearful we are only human but we as humans should take risk, take a chance---you never know where that road will lead you until you try! In the meantime while we are building our courage up here is a great quote that may help to inspire you:

Victim Fights Back!!!

This is the funniest blog that I have come across for many reasons.

Reason #1- I hate when people try to get over on me or scam me, so to see someone fight back is hilarious.

Reason #2-I hate getting scam emails—but when the scammer is actually replying to a potential victim—OMG, it’s a must read!
FYI: Please don’t fall for any type of internet scams: internet dating, the “lonely” girl in desperate need or the job that you have to pay! Please do your research folks! Google is a wonderful tool and these guys, whom I call google crawlers or robots, do an awesome job about getting the word out. But you must take the time to research!! Enough of the lecture enjoy!!

Reason #3- If you have a sense of humor and can read through the poor grammar then you will enjoy!

I just want to give kudos to whoever created this blog---because scammers should be made a fool of!! Grab your popcorn—because this is a real treat: Room with a Screw.
