NewYork 2016: Week One

image  August 30th,2016, I flew from Oklahoma to New York to Visit my big sister and my nephew. I have not seen them in six months, and with everything that I am going through mentally and emotionally it was very much needed to be around my sister.  I have been to New York before but, not long enough to enjoy the air.

Flying out of Will Rogers airport at 11:30 am to Charlotte,North Carolina for a 3 hour layover, which was not that bad. It was so awesome to be in the Tar Heel State, and even with tempation of Tar Heel and Panther apparel everywhere i kept my composure.

When I was flying over New York and saw the lights it was super beautiful! Seeing my sister was awesome, I did not cry at all, I am sure leaving will cause water works though.

DAY ONE : Wednesday August 31st,2016

Got my metro card(transportation pass) and we went grocery shopping as well as checking Target for planner goods.  It is a lot of walking but, definitely not something to complain about . I am getting all my exercise while  I  am here .

DAY TWO: Thursday September 1st,2016

It was a very gloomy day and it was raining so we stayed inside all day. My sister and I were planing in our Happy Planners while my nephew was sleep. We ate some yummy Chili and Sweet potato fries.  Watches the Secret life of Pets, which was a cute movie . We were jamming to Pandora and just bonding with each other, telling her about love, work and other everyday things.

DAY THREE: Friday September 2nd,2016

My sister was OFF and we went to NYC! Time Square is an amazing place to be! Went to the Disney store, couldn’t find the Little Mermaid collection that I was looking for but, it was an experience . Met some Rappers that were selling their cds, and pursuing their dreams. The Naked Cowboy and cast members of Broadway shows were on the sidewalks as we traveled to other parts of NYC.

DAY FOUR: Saturday September 3rd,2016  

Exploring with my Sister , Nephew and my brother in laws  roommate (Who gave me my Bluetooth headset) went to wall street , and staten island where I got on the Staten Island Ferry and see the Statue Of Liberty. The beautiful Skyline of Manhattan from the boat.  Another amazing trip to Time Square where it got a little dark and you can see a little more of the lights of the beautiful scenery. A street performance was doing flips and somersaults over people.  Watched a Spraypaint artist create a painting of New York City and it was really beautiful. We went to the first part of Central Park, which is  a Huge by the way!!! Rice Black beans and Chicken is was was for dinner.

June 2016 Recap

 

Summer beach writing

The word Summer written on a sandy beach, with scuba mask, beach towel, starfish and flip flops (studio shot – warm color and directional light are intentional).

* It is crazy how there is only 6 months of 2016 left!It is very scary how fast life truly passes by. June has been a emotional Rollercoaster if I may say myself.  Highs and lows just like every other month, but this month as been a very challenging one!

Of course the beginning of the month started with mixed feelings and thoughts. I turned 26 on the first, (which honestly caused a wake call) It was not a great year of celebrating my 26 years on this earth ,but I am very grateful for having another day above ground.  The older you get, celebrating your birthday truly just becomes another day.

* A childhood friend  and I made amends to give our friendship one more try , which in my eyes was a blessing and a moment for growth in my eyes. I never thought we were going to be friends again because, how we ended our friendship 5-6 years ago.

*Finally took the first step in getting my license(ABOUT TIME!!), downloaded the Driver’s Manual for my state and began to read it. I am currently 3 chapters to finishing it, then I will go take my written test.  I am a little disappointed in myself for not reaching my goal of having it before my birthday, but I’m almost there. Procrastination at its finest..lol..not anymore more.

*I had to make some very hard decisions this month dealing with what is best for my life, growth and health. Removing people that would rather complain and be misunderstanding to my ways of making important changes for my life.  Standing up for my own right to life, even if it met other being mad for the choices

*Cupid has placed me in an awkward situation when he hit me with that stupid arrow! Dealing emotions, and distracting moves that make no sense at this time.

*Mxdbreedgraphix has become a hot commodity, which is a blessing as well as creating another level of growth in myself. I became apart of a Full Fledge Entertainment which, I am very honored , and blessed about being apart of this organization. It has been  very challenging for me ,due to the fact that I am working with different personalities. I have been filled with joy and happiness that I get the chance to show my talent, I know God is putting me in this place to see if I am truly ready to take this one full time!

As the month is rapidly coming to an end, and looking back at it, I am not in a rush to make major moves that can affect and set me back.

 

Birthday Recap! 6/1/16

Wednesday was my 26th birthday and it started very confusing in some ways. I got to eat breakfast with my mom which is always a highlight of my day. We ate at Ihop, which we do not really care for but, Jimmy’s Egg was full.  My  Cheesecake pancakes were not done all the way. Then we went to pay bills and then to Hobby Lobby, JoAnns and  Walgreens. I did not get much but that was okay. I was grateful for those who remembered and made me feel special, kind of sad for those who should have remembered and did not. Had Dinner with my Dad, Sister-in-law and Mom at Texas Roadhouse. Which my Dinner was decent but was not all that great.DSCN0388.JPG

All my awesome gifts 🙂 That I have received on my Birthday.

 

Movie Review: The Race Story Of Jesse Owens

Storyline Of the movie In the 1930s, Jesse Owens is a young man who is the first in his family to go to college. Going to Ohio State to train under its track and field coach, Larry Snyder, the young African American athlete quickly impresses with his tremendous potential that suggests Olympic material. However, as Owens struggles both with the obligations of his life and the virulent racism against him, the question of whether America would compete at all at the 1936 Olympics in Nazi Germany is being debated vigorously. When American envoy, Avery Brundage, finds a compromise personally persuasive and tolerable enough with the Third Reich to avert a boycott, Owens has his own moral struggle on whether to go. Upon resolving that issue, Owens and his coach travel to Berlin to participate in a competition that would mark Owens as the greatest of the American Olympians even as the German film director, Leni Riefenstahl, locks horns with her country’s Propaganda Minister, Josef Goebbels, to film the politically

 I truly have to say that this movie could not have came out at a better time. We need more movies to let  young people know not just African Americans that they are very much capable for changing the world, even when  it seems scary and frighting.  I love biography movies for the main reason that when you watch or read about someone, and their tribute to life itself it encourages you to do so much more.  I have learned many things from this movie not only that CHANGE can happen even with a SINGLE person.  JESSE OWENS has made world breaking changes that should not be forgotten.  I truly enjoyed this movie , I recommend everyone to watch this movie. Its a Wonderful History lesson about RACISM, UNITY and standing up for what you believe in even if the world does not give a damn about you, whether its because of the Color of your skin or your religion.

  This movie takes place during the time of Hitler’s Reign over Germany, as well as the Segregation of African Americans and White people. The  Two most difficult times I truly feel due to I am both African American and German. In order to learn who you are you much understand and learn where you come from.  The German’s where in the process of taking away all rights against the Jews and anyone who was not WHITE .  I appreciate the clarity in this movie and the way they portrayed these important historical events because, you truly do not get to experience the moments of history as your parents to ancestors but in movies.   This movie shows the beauty of Unity  and the Overcoming of trials and tribulations and anyone could go through.  Jesse Owens was an AFRICAN AMERICAN  MAN who not only had to deal with people trying to discourage him because of his SKIN COLOR but also not worrying about what other people taught and do what he enjoyed to do.

 I apologize if anyone is  offended by this Review… I am not a racist by any means.. just an honest opinion and my thoughts on this amazing movie that I had to honor of watching.

 Sailor Scouts Monthly Squares & Mission Board

✨ I have always been the kind of person to always find away to learn something, to make my personal things have some kind of flare or glam to it.  I am active printable sticker printer lol, I came to look for some monthly squares for my Happy Planner because I wasn’t to change the background.

 I already had the headers from Monica’s Marvelous Printables for June 2016 and I wanted to make something fit. I created Sailor Scout squares (which are slightly smaller then the boxes). I truly believe for my first time making anything planner related it came out beautiful.

 All you have to do is save the image to your computer. Then print and cut.

  image Ever felt like you had to be someone else to Impress others?Or many the one you love, because you were scared that they wouldn’t accept you for who you were. I have and it took me several years to understand how IMPORTANT I WAS TO ME and that what others didn’t like wasn’t important. I chose to use Aladdin for that reason. When I think about how he tried to change himself to be with Jasmine, as well as Jasmine having her moves chosen for her because it was the way of tradition. image

 imageWhen soundtracks are make for Disney movies I truly love the Original songs by the artists then the voices of the animation. This song just gives you that Real Love feel that two misunderstood people that connect. My favorite song from the Aladdin Series

 image I decided to start this Disney Take over with my Heidi Swapp Personal Size Planner, I am still learning to love it, as well as customizing it to my liking. With little that I had for this selection I thought it would be best to start with the smallest planner I have. This planner is used for tracking packages, blog posts and other everyday things. It is very easily to carry around, it was gifted to me a few months

I absolutely love the way it turned out. Wish i had a cute Aladdin clip to add but at the moment I do not.  I am working on my lettering (which is terrible) . I did not fill out what it going on next week because most of the time my days change.  The stickers that I used are from PlanwithPizazz check her out! The Coffeecup and planner  is from JLYNNPAPERCO..  the TsumTsum stickers are from a sticker book I recieved from barnes and nobles but i did see it at target. 🙂 and those cute Kawaii Laptops are from Stickwithmeshop on etsy! Hope you guys enjoyed this lil Review on my Next weeks layout 😉 See ya Soon!
