Someone who knows how to love you without being told

Thursday, December 25, 2008

As some of you may know I work in the hospitality industry -- a non stop, 24/7/365, the door is always open, the light is always on Marriott hotel in Nashville, TN, which doesn't guarantee me that I will have every single holiday off (or even half of them for that matter) like most traditional occupations do. It's a price that I have to pay for a job that I really enjoy. However, is right of me to expect my boyfriend to pay that price along with me?Here's where I stand. Christmas is coming and I know that I have to work from 7am to 3pm that day (he isn't an early morning person anyways), there isn't any way around it. But ... boyfriend has chosen to take a trip out of town to see his mother again for the 24th, 25th, and 26th which leaves me alone for the holidays in a city where I have no family and the friends that I made in college are going to be headed for their homes as well. Is it ok for me to feel a little anger in the pit of my stomach at his holiday plans and my deserment? Or am I just being selfish? Should I have to tell him that leaving his girlfriend of 3 years alone in the city is angering, to say the least? Or is that something that should be common sense to the common man?Boyfriend is a mama's boy! I knew that when I met him and no amount of coaxing is going to pull him out of that. But when should a man transition from one household to the next? I personally feel that after so many years together and the intertwining of virtually every part of our lives it's time look forward to a home, family. and future of his own.I love him whole heartedly, but with Christmas being the second holiday I would have spent alone this year and New Years a third I am wondering if the feelings are reciprocated. What is a girl to do?

How to Look for Data Entry from Home

Friday, December 19, 2008

If you are looking for data entry work, you will see many ads that promise thousands of dollars a week for doing easy typing work and data entry work from home.

If you've checked these programs, you may have been tempted by their sales pitch and attractive promises of easy work from home. They make it sound so easy and tell you all you need to do is enter data into forms. You may already have bought one or more of these programs and wasted your money.

Can you get legitimate data entry work from home?

Unfortunately, the majority of data entry work at home programs are scams. Stop looking in the wrong places. Don't search for easy work with top pay without experience needed. Don't search for keywords like "work from home, work at home jobs, work at home jobs no fees, data entry programs." These searches will show you all the scams.

"Data entry programs" are almost guaranteed to tell you to fill in forms to promote affiliate programs. When "filling in forms" you'll set up ads for pay per click advertising such as Google Adwords and you'll pay advertising fees when people click on your ad.

The good news is that you can find legitimate data entry work from home if you are looking in the right places. Real data entry work involves a lot more than just filling in forms. The best way to get data entry work or typing work from home is to become a freelancer and promote yourself as a secretarial service or virtual assistant.

Start promoting your typing and secretarial services instead of looking for easy promises. Find your own clients, learn to market, and create promotional materials.

Don't be naïve.

Don't waste your money on those scams. If you fall for those types of programs, you're looking in the wrong direction and will miss out on real data entry and typing work from home. Your success will start when you learn to distinguish the real work from home from the easy promises that will not make you any money from home.

A real business takes work.

If someone promises you good money for easy work without experience, ignore it. Your business will start to take off when you look at real opportunities to work from home. If you look in the right direction, you will find legitimate typing work and data entry work from home. And be prepared to put in some work and effort.

You Can Vote However You Like

5th and 6th graders from the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, GA. During their civics and government lessons the students were first taught the Republican and Democrat ideals and the policies that each is presenting as their platform without out being told which candidate was actually a Democrat and which candidate was a Republican -- they were then asked to make a decision based on the policies alone (something that we all should have been doing from the beginning). Were they ever surprised who fell to the left and who fell to the right!

After studying the parties and making the decision their next class project was to make this song showcase what they had learned in their class to the tune of "You Can Have Whatever You Like".

This is the kind of education that more and more of our students have been attaining due to the topics that have been surrounding this elections. Even if Obama does not win (heaven forbid), this has turned the nation in the right direction -- more people need to be involved in the goings on of this country!

Moments of Clarity
By Noir Czar

Torn rubber packet after packet I pursue this high,
questioning positions and penetration between a different open thigh.

this drug comes wit no prescription still remains my addiction
in the calmest of conversation it requires my attention
then perverts my intentions from platonic to dissension
till I am suffocating in a lust and am guided by my extension

then my phone dials you

and now I am held captive by our caressing sensations
contemplating our contact as we progress to fornication
and though I have knowledge of a biblical persuasion
I pursue sex with a passion like tomorrow is my castration

lacking all hesitation you provide for my pleasure
with moments of foreplay before unveiling your treasure
and at that instance of ecstasy I ejaculate and then perceive
that sex with you is unnecessary and now I must take my leave

It is from these moments in time that I often try to conceive
a method to my own madness and what I plan to achieve
how can I expect a woman's trust when I predominantly deceive
and plot with periodic persistence not consistent from dawn to eve

In these seconds of clarity I attempt to control and adjust my way
returning to my locations of prayer when I previously fell astray

then in the calmest of conversation it acquires my attention
then perverts my intentions from platonic to dissension
till I am suffering in a lust and am guided by my extension
then my phone dials you to repeat my previous intention

When It Hurts

I am going to take a brief break for a moment before I go into my normal posts for the day. Although my iPod Touch is loaded with over 1,000 songs and several more videos, I normally just listen to about three ... over and over and over again. Lately the song that monopolizes the majority of my free time is "When it Hurts" by Avant. When I first started playing thus song in incessant repetition I thought it was simply because the chorus was catchy and Avant's voice is soothing to me. But, after a week of shewing over the lyrics and singing them with non-harmonic enthusiasm when I'm alone I realized that it was what the song was talking about -- Will you love me when it hurts?

You see, my boyfriend's lease is up on his apartment at the end of the month and he is moving in with me (along with all of his ugly bachelor pad furniture) and I'm seriously freakin' out. No longer is it going to be a just a simple boyfriend/girlfriend, very little commitment, you have your space and I have mine kind of relationship. We are going to completely be merging our separate lives together to make one and the only way that it is going to be successful is if we can "love [each other] when it hurts".

Avant hit the jackpot on this one!

I'M SO GLAD I GO TO TSU! ... Tennessee State University's 2008 Homecoming Week has Finally Arrived ... And I have Never Been So Syked

Monday, October 27, 2008

"Get Geek! Get Geek! It's Homecoming week. We don't go to class and we don't go to sleep. We stay up 24/7 the WHOLE damn week!"

There is a reason we are known as The Aristocrat of Bands:

"I'm so Glad I go to TSU, singing Glory Hallelujah ... whoo ... I'm So Glad!"

"T-S, T-S, T-S-U... Aristocrat! Aristocrat of Bands!"

My boyfriend is a Sigma, so I had to include this one from the Homecoming Step Show last year:

Watch out, cause Big Blue Country is taking over he city of Nashville this week!

VIDEO OF THE DAY! Travis Barker is My Music Idol ... Go, White Boy, Go!

Who would have ever thought that a white boy could jam like this, but, as many youtubers may already know ... Travis Barker is a one of a kind musician! Below is the youtube video remix of the culture phenomenon "Crank That Soulja Boy":

Travis Barker achieved his fame as the drummer for the pop punk band Blink-182. With Barker as their drummer, Blink-182 released their best selling album to date, Enema of the State (1999), followed by Take Off Your Pants and Jacket (2001), and Blink-182 (2003). After seven years of drumming with Blink-182, in February 2005, the band split up. But that didn't stop Barkers momentum.

Barker said he's always been interested in more genres of music outside punk punk rock, including hip hop. In a 2002 interview with MTV he said, "I probably listen to more hip hop and drum'n'bass than I do punk rock music." Not being able to explore these interests within Blink-182, Barker participated in two hip hop related side projects during that time: Transplants and Expensive Taste.

Recently, Travis Barker made the very well received remix of Soulja Boy's "Crank That Soulja Boy" (featured above). In similar fashion, he also remixed Flo Rida's single "Low" that was later included in the deluxe version of Flo Rida's debut album. Barker is also featured in The Game's latest album, L.A.X., drumming in the song "Dope Boys".

Was It Something I Said
By Noir Czar

Was it my use of the first amendment that caused your ideas of independence
attaining freedom from your mental barriers
no crab mentality cause on my curved vertebrae will carry ya
on my shoulders rest the future of my civilization
ancestors of the Aztecs, Mayans, and Haitians
product of desegregation, the result of a mid night conversation
was it something that he said?

Did his candor with my mother start my revolution
the utter conclusion is clarity in this mass confusion
thru scars and contusion we wake up and smell the roses thru this media pollution
a remedial solution to the problem at hand is proper representation
but I am filled with disgust when I come to the revelation
that even in his conversations, fraudulent assertions and propaganda are spread
Was it something he said?

Was it his rebuttal to the criminal charges
or his reasoning for the aggressive sexual approach
her reproach to his advances in the land of opportunity
the melanin increase our circumstances even in our romances
kissed, caressed and slow dances we are oppressed from our chances
yet we attain our ignorant stances, lean back and rock with that
through music we speak the situational fact
an over rates reality of addiction to crack
my prediction is that your perception is whack
was it something he rapped?

The lyrics he stacked that cause us pain
a dependent mainframe based on the size of your chain
the carat in your ring
the eighty fours on your swing
see prior to politics these material things only glisten
but now we see they listen
a catalyst to competition
and addictive to the current composition of envy, hate, kill and its constant repetition
Was it something that was written?

Or were we both just forgiven when he took the silver pence
crossed the borders of the pearl fence into a valley of repentance
If I could write the world's wrongs in a sentence would you sentence me to death too
would it still stand true that my actions were u-republic
I could change the subject
and still remain a subject discussion
but due to my heart's percussion there is no retreat
and whatever is spoken from my lips is confirmed y the foundation of my feet
stand up for what you speak or talk into existence your own defeat.

Is Your Right to Vote Being Called to Question?

It's almost 8 days until the history making elections day when Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain go head to head in the final leg of the race for the White House. The country is on edge and divided between the two candidates -- never in my lifetime have I witnessed such a national interest in politics nor such low down schemes to hold the other party back. But just when I think that I have seen and heard it all, people manage to find new ways to surprise.

Earlier today, the Associated Press released an article detailing the voter 'purging' of more than 50,000 registered voters in the state of Georgia alone. These are citizens who have been "flagged" due to a so called computer mismatch in their personal identification information ... "At least 4,500 of those people are having their citizenship questioned and the burden is on them to prove their eligibility to vote." The article highlighted this specific story of an Atlanta resident and United States citizen:

College Senior Kyla Berry was looking forward to voting in her first presidential election, even carrying her voter registration card.

But about two weeks ago, Berry got disturbing news from local election officials.

"This office has received notification from the state of Geargia indicating that you are not a citizen of the United States and therefore, not eligible to vote," a letter from the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections said.

But Berry is a U.S. citizen, born in Boston, Massachusetts. She has a passport and birth certificate to prove it.

The letter, which was dated October 2, gave her a week from the time it was dated to prove her citizenship. There was a problem, though -- the letter was postmarked October 9.

"It was the most bizarre thing. I immediately called my mother and asked her to send my birth certificate, and then I was like, 'It's too late, apparently,'" Berry said

This is a situation that has been echoed all across the country and has raised fears, for members of both parties, of the possibility of voter suppression. The problem with this situation, though, is the fact that the letters to these citizens were written during the first few days in October and then mailed a few days after that, according to the postmark date on the envelopes (this is a clear violation of two federal laws against voter purging within 90 days of the election). These citizens have been given an almost impossible deadline to follow if they want to get their voting rights back. Politicians and Lawyers all across the country have jumped on the issue in order to protect voter rights and prevent a systematic voter suppression. This is an election that is far too important and a historical landmark to be foreshadowed by such an undemocratic event. The basis of the democratic system is that every person has a voice and, this year, there has been a remarkable increase in the number of new voters (especially new voters that are African American and/ or young first time voters).

If you have not voted already, make sure that your voting credentials are up to date and valid. Although the burden of proof of your eligibility to vote is on you, and you alone, the American government has a responsibility to each and every one of us to correct this issue before election day. Every eligible person (meaning, every US citizen or foreign national over the age of 18 that is not a felon) that wants to cast a vote on November 4 should be able to do so, even if that means that they need to bring their birth certificate and picture ID along with their voter registration card to the election polls. Don't wait until the very last minute!

Jennifer Hudson's Family Murder UPDATE!

Julian King, Jennifer Hudson's 7 year old nephew, has been missing since the murder of Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother on Friday October 24, 2008. However, the Cook County Police Department found the "remains" of a child's body in an SUV this morning that they believe may be little Julian.
