BUSH! Pretty much the coolest President Ever! NOT

Top ten reasons why Bush must go:

1) Iraq-he lied us into war
2)Terrorism-he has made us less safe
3) Jobs-He put 3 million american's out of work
4)The deficit-he spends money like a drunken sailor
5)The patriot act-he underminded our most basic freedoms
6)Crony capitalism-he sold america out to special interests
7)Foreign policy-he ruined america's standing in the world
8)The environment...he is the worst president ever
9)Broken promises-he is a divider, not a uniter
10)The credibility gap-he never tells the truth
*bonus* 11) Florida- he stole the 2000 election

Nappy Hair

Nappy Naps! Embrace you the way you are! Love you 4 you!

Beauty coms from within. It is sparked by an inner strength and radiance that goes far beyond physical appearance. ~Janet Jackson

I came to this world with nappy hairAnd when I was too young to really careI loved to twirl each curl in my handAnd appreciate the texture of every strand.But when I got older I was toldThat the straightest hair was just like gold.My hair got ironed with a metal combAnd the smell of burning grease made me moan.I got a relaxer to run from the smoke,But the pain of my overcooked scalp was no joke.I even tried a Jheri curl to give myself a breakBut being a target of jokes made my heart ache.Oh, the day I turned my back on chemicals and heat,I felt so free - oh, what a treat!I trimmed off what was left of the damaged messAnd saw in the mirror what I thought was success.But society said I had lost my mindAnd that I would run back to tradition in time.I got the strangest looks everywhereAnd even loved ones frowned at my nappy hair.I can't get a black brother to take me out for a mealSince my hair lacks European appeal.But when I look at my origin,The continent of Africa, wher my ancestors had beenAnd the beauty of the people who live there,I saw nothing wrong with my nappy hair.God gave me this hairSo I should not be ashamedIt is part of who I amAin't nothin' wrong with it, I exclaimed.So I will wear my Afro, my twists and my coils!I will not allow my confidence to be soiled.Even if my hair is locked and dreaded,I am proud of being nappy-headed.

One Love!

April 30, 2005, I will graduate from Grand Valley State University with a B.S. in Criminal Justice emphasis in Juvenile Justice. So what does this all mean. Does it mean I will be getting a real job in the real world. Wait, I thought I was already in the real world. I am not to worried about finding a job after graduation like many of friends have in the past and in the future. They run around like a chicken with their heads cut off worrying and stressing about finding a job. I have seen people worry themselves sick. Its just not healthy. If you want a job and cannot find it hear in Michigan, then take your Ass else where. There other fishes and opportunties in the Sea. You have to be willing to try something new.

Fitness is so key!

I think its get about that time. The time to compete in my first bodybuilding show. Almost two years since I have set my sights on the bodybuilding world in hopes to one day go pro and I am so ready to get up on that stage and show how hard I have worked. Let me tell you, it has not been easy. I fell of the wagon for a while but now I am back on and ready to go.

Today, on the way out after an awesome intense work out, I passed by a flyer for an upcoming bodybuilding show in Belding, MI. So I have a goal to meet, if I am ready by the first week of April I will enter. From here on out I will live and breathe the burn, pumping iron like no other, cardio like no other and strictly clean eating for the next how many ever weeks. Wish me luck, it is going to be a journey and I am ready to take it on. This is only the beginning!

Don't let the number one cause of death overtake you! Stop eating fast food! Read Fast Food Nation and I am sure you will stay away. Maybe not because bad foods, fast food and huge portion sizes will probably always dominate our social structure. My latest accomplishment is staying away from fast food, and it can be a challenge. Will power, Baby! I am even giving up Subway. That one was hard because I love it but its all good in the long run. You can by your own fresh bread even better yet bake it if you want and by your own deli meat cut just the way you want. Its also good to eat vegetarian style as well. You don't always have to eat meat. One day I will be a vegetarian again, seeing that I was a vegetarian for like four years. LIVESTRONG~STAY HEALTHY~BE ACTIVE~TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR BODY!

The N word

While writing a paper, I decided to check out Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary. I have been using Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary because it’s a quick access when checking the spellings of words instead of relying on Microsoft Word for spell check. Just yesterday I was listening to radio talk show and the topic was the N word. A lady called in and was discussing how the word is listed in the dictionary. So I thought I type the N word in the dictionary for myself to see what it actually says and the woman was right. In the Merriam-Webster Dictionary the N word is only referred to black people or a member of a dark skinned race. I thought I would be outraged but I'm not because I live in world where ignorant people still think like that and the fact that its in the dictionary that way just confirms how things really haven't changed. That was a really big run on sentence but you get my point. Here I was thinking the true definition of the N word was someone who is ignorant. I guess according to whoever wrote the Merriam-Webster Dictionary doesn't think so. Whats your thoughts?

Go ahead check the dictionary out for yourself.
