My Semester So Far
I just started at a new university on my hometown. What I primarily thought was a poor excuse for a backup school turned out to be one of the best schools this city has to offer. I set out to complete a degree in Simulation and Digital Entertainment (Computer Gaming) but I want to double major with graphic design or publishing. I really love it here. The only issue I am encountering is that I...
Just put up my computer desk yesterday-ish and I already began dropping food under it. Alas mister green grape, I may or may not sacrifice you to the dust gods.
Thoughts on River Song
***SPOILERS AHEAD*** She is getting to be the most heartbreaking character from Doctor Who. She is fighting with Donna Noble for first place, but I think River will win. We know what happens to her in the Library. We know know that had she not saved the Doctor, she would probably have regenerated. It is a weird situation because if she let the Doctor save the Library, she would have done what...
alexialiebert: In the library River whispered the Doctor’s name to gain his trust; the Silence is said to fall when a question is asked.. A question that is hidden in plain sight. What question is asked more than any other in the Whoniverse? Doctor WHO? (-via timeferret)
Cliffs and Competitions
I dreamed that it was the morning after a small snow. I was shoveling the steps and watching the little kids go to school. There was a competition that was like an obstacle course that one of the neighborhood kids was in. I went with the mother and she talked to me about something I cannot remember. When I tried to go back home, I was stuck on a sloping area that led to a cliff. The whole time I...
I got into Pottermore early! Woot! Woot!
Earthquake! in Baltimore
Just felt an earthquake. I live in Baltimore and I felt the earthquake from Richmond. Just so you know.
Tapping into somebody’s wireless in the middle of the country. But the good thing is that there is a chance they are family… and family shares… Yeah, that’s my story.
Okay so I will be gone as of fifteen minutes from now. I need to pack my laptop and all other technology that will help stave off boredom in the middle of nowhere Pleasant Hill, North Carolina. I should be back Monday evening. Ta-ta for now.
Like many black Americans, I attend family reunions in the South (NC, SC, GA MS, LA, FL); however, my family is a rare case as we meet every year. I have been attending these reunions since before I can remember. I love them because I get to see people I haven’t seen in a year and I get to eat southern food. I live for bbq and stew. Recently, I have put it into my mind that I wanted to get...

Raw Fruits and Vegetables with Lime Juice
Dip your cut up veggies and fruit into a small bowl of lime juice. The taste is different and helps if you don’t like the natural taste of veggies.
Balancing Green Tea and Water
I bought a 78 oz water bottle/jug from Dollar General at the start of the summer. I use this to get my daily water intake. While there is research that says drinking at least 8 glasses of water is not really necessary, I find that when trying to cut down on soda and instant drinks (Kool-Aid and tea mixes), it is easy to have a water jug to drink from. I recently started drinking tea, green tea to...
I got my email for early entry to Pottermore. I just needed to share this.
An Observation on My Weight Goals
According to all of the charts and figures, I am obese. According to my family, I just need to lose the extra weight around my stomach. According to me, I should work on my arms too. I am alright with this because I take my weight cues from my family. I am lucky enough to understand that when they say I am “gettin’ big” or “look at that stomach”, it is something they...
I Could Have Waited Until Next Week
I have watched this show from the beginning. I couldn’t wait until it premiered. However, after the second episode, I became bored. The characters were amazing and the story lines were good, but something was off about the series. Tonight was the season finale and I am very disappointed. The past couple of episodes set up characters so that they could be heroes, but there was no delivery....
