Family Vacation : Orlando, Florida.

A week after my birthday we had plans to visit Florida. We had this vacation planned since last year because my sister was tired of going to Myrtle Beach and visiting their “dirty water” as she calls it so we opt to go to Orlando, FL for the first time in 8 years. I was clearly excited due to last time I went I got food poisoning and ended up sick and unable to enjoy Disney and/or anything else but this time I was ready especially with a little one in tow!

The ride was long and I was exhausted beyond measure by the time we got to Florida, one thing I never realized is how hot and uncomfortable Florida can get. The stay at the Star Island Resort was beautiful, that may have been the best part of our trip while staying there a week. Disney wasn’t as interesting as I remember and I was disappointed and also the people in the area are rather rude and obnoxious I believe at one point my mom almost whooped on a lady at the Disney store who did not know the words “excuse me” so we were really over this trip and probably will not make any plans to go back. But please enjoy the pictures I took, lol.

Happy Born Day : 26.

 
XXVI.

Another year has passed and I am now 26, I do not know if I have fully accepted that I am 4 years shy of my 30th birthday but I guess it is time that I realize that and accept it. For my birthday this year I had a get together at my place and even though it was somewhat last minute one of my best friends made sure it was one to remember no matter what took place that night, I cooked we had drinks and a good time but I think where I failed at was inviting some people over that I worked with. I have learned in the past that you do not mix business and personal because people tend to get the lines blurred and now they “assume” they know you from one interaction of hanging out so that was my mistake and I plan to never make that mistake again. Overall my birthday was quiet and mellow the way my life has been lately and I liked it, I am finally embracing the woman I am meant to be rather than trying to be someone that I clearly am not.

 

April Woes.


I have finally broke down and invested in another laptop, Toshiba Touch Screen Windows 8 laptop to be exact. This definitely would not be my first choice since I was finally an avid macbook user. However, a month prior my macbook malfunctioned on me and they wanted $600 to fix it. 



I've had my macbook since 2008/2009 so most would say it was "time" to get a new laptop or just break down and pay to get it fix. But I couldn't, my budget wouldn't allow it so I had to sell it as is and made a hasty purchase of a windows laptop due to having online classes. I truly wished I had taken the time and figure out a different way of going about things because now I have been missing my macbook more than ever and windows just isn't cutting it. Hopefully this year Santa will have a pretty macbook waiting for me under the Christmas tree.


Quick Update

I know that I’ve been missing in the blogging world and this doesn’t come as a surprise since I go missing a lot. However, I come with great news me and the little one just finally moved into our own place so it has taken some time and adjusting since we have only been here 2 weeks and I had to get unpacked, situated, and also get the internet connected. I have so much to tell you guys about what has been going on in my life that it will take more than a few entries for me to get it all out in detail but I will be updating the blog this week with continuous blogs so please be sure to check back and bare with me as we make this new journey in our lives.

Crossroads

I find myself wondering where my life is going and if this is really how things are going to play out for me. I have took another break from school and I am still undecided on what I want to do, after I had Chasity I thought I could go back to school and handle her and school but it became overwhelming and a little stressful to where I could not even keep up. It pains me to have to stop all over again but my life has changed and at this point all I can do is adapt, I had to get back to work even though I was making more money continuing my education I was failing miserably on juggling the two.  However, now the time has come again where I try to find another job and I have been failing miserably at that as well so my thoughts are to go back to school and continue towards my degree or move to a new location after this year to better my situation for me and her. I have no clue where our life together is going but I have put it in god’s hands he has not led me down any wrong paths so far so I do not think he will start now. I will keep you guys updated on what my decision will be but as of now I am just trying to come to terms with the decisions I am making for the life and if they have been the right ones.

Updated:

I wrote this last year and never posted it, I was going through a trying time in my life and I seriously didn’t know what was going to happen with Chasity and myself. However, since I’ve written this post I have went back to school and I graduate in December with my BA in Business. I’m very proud of myself for not giving up fully on school, I work all the time now with more pay and more hours but I have been handling work, school, and my daughter quite well. We have also found a place for us to live which has not been easy, I have been trying and trying to buy a house but for some reason I haven’t had much luck so I finally decided on an apartment in which we move into in about 3 weeks. Last year around this time I wanted to move out, be on my own but god was not ready for me to be on my own and I believe now he’s ready, he’s opening doors for me I never thought would open and I’m so very proud of myself for being patience and wanting until my season.

One thing I’ve missed while having a busy little one is reading. I’ve always enjoyed reading but after I had Chasity I no longer could find the time to do so with all my time going into being a mommy and working to make sure we are taken care of. However, throughout the past couple of months I’ve been saving books to my amazon wishlist that I wanted to read or get my hands on. So after browsing the web for good prices or the best bargain for books I came across half.com powered by ebay and fell in love. I spent $30 on all of the books above except Words of a Wanderer by Alex Elle, that book was $15 for an autographed copy which I absolutely love.

New Year, 2014.+


New Year, More Sharing. 

Happy New Years Everyone, I hope you've had a safe and very insightful New Years. I didn't quite bring in the new years like I would have liked but it just let me know deep down what's more important. I don't have many goals or outlooks for the New Year except becoming a healthier me this year, continue to be the best mother I can, and "sharing". I realize I don't share enough with the world, I hold in my talents because I'm afraid of being judged or someone not understanding me. This is why my posts tend to slow down as well as my photography and many other talents I possess. I hate that I'm so jaded but this year I plan to be open minded to the possibilities that my life can have whether it's with my talents or personal life just know I plan to share with you guys as much as possible.



 All I want to do this year is
