At first I was skeptical…

 

But CT101 was fun and I learn a lot of new things. From GIF making to learning how to do minor things in Photoshop. I appreciate Professor Seslow for his encouragement, patience and help. Its made the class a better experience.
I liked being able to create my own website and customize it. It was fun being able to have an outlet to express myself was well. This class has made me more interested in web design.

I didn’t  stick to particular theme on my website. I just posted my random thoughts and tries. Very fun learning experience.

 

I Need Sleep!

Working an overnight job for so many years has ruined my life! (Well that was pretty dramatic.) But seriously… my body never knows when it’s supposed to be sleeping or awake. My mind isn’t sure either. Day job, night job, school. If I fall asleep before 12:30am, I wake up at 2am and then I’m …

Working an overnight job for so many years has ruined my life! (Well that was pretty dramatic.) But seriously… my body never knows when it’s supposed to be sleeping or awake. My mind isn’t sure either. Day job, night job, school.

If I fall asleep before 12:30am, I wake up at 2am and then I’m up for hours. Like my body has an alarm that says “Why are you sleep? You should be at work lifting boxes.”

So here it is 3:58am and I’m up writing a post about how I can’t sleep because there’s nothing else to do and I feel like the ceiling is tired of my staring at it.

I’m always in zombie mode because I never get enough sleep. Ugh!

“Music is Like Food to the Soul”

  I have a very… eclectic taste in music. I listen to Rock– no heavy metal stuff though, Pop, Country, R&B, , and whatever else might catch my ear.  But one of my favorite albums EVER is “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.” Lauryn Hill is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, record producer and actress. This was …

I have a very… eclectic taste in music. I listen to Rock– no heavy metal stuff though, Pop, Country, R&B, , and whatever else might catch my ear.  But one of my favorite albums EVER is “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”

Lauryn Hill is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, record producer and actress. This was her  debut solo album– she was originally with a group called The Fugees. The album was released in 1998 and here almost 20 years later I listen to it almost everyday.

Something about her soulful sound and this album just soothes me. No matter what kind of mood I’m in I can just listen to this album and be able to bring some type of calmness.

I can appreciate every song…

1. Intro (The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill)
2. Lost Ones
3. Ex-Factor
4. To Zion ft. Carlos Santana
5. Doo Wop (That Thing)
6. Superstar
7. Final Hour
8. When it Hurts So Bad
9. I Used to Love Him ft. Mary J Blige
10. Forgive Them Father
11. Every Ghetto, Every City
12. Nothing Even Matters ft. D’Angelo
13. Everything Is Everything
14. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
15. Can’t Take My Eyes Off You
16. Tell Him

If for some reason you have never listen to this or have never heard of Lauryn Hill because you’re super young or you live under a rock, you should definitely try and give it a listen.

Today is my birthday and to the average person that means excitement. And maybe I should be like…

But it just felt like another day. I went to work and then I came home to do homework.

Plus Mother’s Day kinda make me sad. Since I loss my mother a few years ago.

 

And because my birthday doesn’t mean I don’t still have tons of assignments due all this week.

But its okay, because after finals I’ll be like…

Happy Birthday to Me!

How Has It Come to This?

So the other day I was reading the news, as I always do, and I came across an article about an 8 year old boy who committed suicide after being bullied at school. I wont go into details. Just click the link to read about the entire story. But this just brings up a lot of questions and concerns. Like…

What does an 8-year-old know about suicide?

I’m not saying his parents are at fault. But how do you not notice if your child is having self esteem issues or signs of depression? I feel like children who are taught to love themselves and shown that they are important at home won’t develop those types of issues. But i’m no expert.

Who raised kids are these?

People always say you can’t tell people how to raise their kids, but that shouldn’t always be the case. Sometimes people need help. Sometimes when you see something isn’t right or that the way your friend, neighbor, family is raising there child might not have a possible outcome on the child’s future, i think there are time when we should step in. Because if not then people run the risk of raising little monster that some to school and bully other children until their self esteem is so low that they don’t feel their life is worth anything anymore.

Who is the blame for this?

Some people feel like the parents of the kids that bullied this little boy should be held responsible as well the children. Some say the parent of the little boy that took his own life is the one at fault. But who really is to blame…

It is important that parents are more involved in how their children behave at school.
