I was trying to make that rhyme. Humor me, please. Anyway, as you can see, my last post was three weeks ago. The powers that be might as well confiscate my domain name. It’s been some years since I’ve taken this long to post. Forgive me. Now allow me to be a bit self-absorbed for a moment in order to update you all on my life.
The last few days have been nothing short of a magnificent blur. So I started my new internship with Caren West PR on Wednesday and boy, they did not hesitate to get us to work. And I love it. So far, the experience has been more than I could have imagined. There are four total Publicity Assistants and we’re all surprisingly Taurses (as is our boss, Caren West).
I’ll write more about what I’m learning along the way but I just wanted to drop in with a weekend note. I also wanted to apologize in advance for any sporadic posts to come. Still getting a hang of this new schedule.
Eat, drink and be merry.
For Colored Girls Who Could No Longer Stand the Cold. Yes, that was us on Sunday. Me, four girls and 12 colorful polka-dotted balloons.
I spent my Saturday with my delightful god-daughter. Those of us without children know how every opportunity to spend time with someone else’s child is either practice or prevention. Luckily, my little princess is not that bad, lol. She’s actually very intelligent. Little did I know, I would leave her a little wiser.
My mother is the eldest of six children. For the majority of her life, she has been a practicing nurse. We all know that the eldest child has a tendency to be the bossy, know-it-all type. Well, not my mother. Before she even became a mother, she was a mother to many. She has always had a caring and nurturing disposition.
A blessing and a curse.
I’ve worn glasses since I was a junior in high school and since then, I’ve gone through six pair of frames. I love the versatility of eyeglasses. One day I’m school teacher chic, the next day I’m classy hippie. Every year or two, I get the itch to purchase new frames. It’s like GlassesUSA.com read my mind because they reached out to me with a sweet deal.
A friend of mine posted an intriguing photo about a new documentary. She said it was a love story so of course I looked it up. After seeing a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I knew it would be a must-see. Cutie and the Boxer chronicles the difficulties in life and love of two creative individuals. Married to each other and to their crafts, boxing painter Ushio Shinohara and artist Noriko Shinohara sacrifice everything for their art.
So excited to feature a guest post by friend and fellow blogger, Danielle of Olive Juice & S’Mores blog. I reached out to her about collaborating because she has such a fun style, reflective of her personality. I saw a few of her Winter posts on Instagram and just knew a cool covering of her style is just the dusting this blog needed. So for today, we’ve switched blogs. Check hers out for my post. Don’t be shy, show her some love.
So you quit your day job for your day-dream and now your day-dream is turning into a nightmare. Or something like that. Well, don’t panic. If you, like me, still feel strongly about your decision to leave a position, remember why you did it and keep on believing.
I’ll admit, today wasn’t the most inspiring of days but I always come across some hopefel reads that lift my spirits. According to Forbes, 2014 is the year for women entrepreneurs. That’s exciting and encouraging because we’re all in the same boat: shifting our dreams into fruition. Glass ceiling what?! Tuh.
So before that day-dream of yours turns into a full-on nightmare, try these four things.
