Hi. I have been writing since I was a kid. After college, I published a poem called "Dark Heaven" in a book titled The Colors of Life. I love writing short stories, poems and more. I enjoy art, meditation, traveling, and martial arts.
Confessions Of A Book Collector
I used to work at a thrift store, and I must say that I have always been so fascinated by the items that people donated. I worked in the e-Commerce department where I would list items that would potentially make a lot of money on eBay. I have seen a lot of items I never knew I would come across in real life. I have seen rare trading cards. I have seen vintage wardrobes and jewelry. I have seen gorgeous antiques. I have seen pure gold coins worth at least five thousand dollars. I have seen huge, bizarre paintings. I have seen military attires from major wars. I have seen an old family album with actual pictures from the early 1900s. I came across so many different objects that I want to say that I have seen them all, but I know I have not.
Blissful Instrumental For My Zen
Music is great, but I am not a huge music fan. Unless I am doing a certain activity like working out or chores at home, I do not listen to music daily. Even though there are many artists that I enjoy listening to, I do not have posters of them in my bedroom. I do not attend concerts even if the tickets are extremely cheap. I rarely keep up with the latest popular song unless I hear about it from my 12-year-old daughter. I do not have a huge CD rack nor a thick CD holder filled with compact discs. Now and days, if I want to listen to music, I either use my iTunes, Pandora, or YouTube. However, my main reason for watching YouTube is not watching music videos. Even in the car, I listen to podcasts most of the time. I do not even have the desire to watch the Grammy Awards. Also, I was not too thrilled about Myspace redesigning their platform to focus primarily on music – but that is a whole different topic that I can get into later. I am not indicating that I dislike music. After all, there are some music artists that I enjoy listening to, and it all depends on my mood. I just do not fully consider myself as a big-time music lover.
Thankful That We Are Sisters

Possibly More Powerful Than The Universe
We all know that Earth is an enormous planet with the population of 7,874,965,825 people. Then, you have our galaxy. How big is our galaxy? We have eight known planets (including Earth) with Jupiter being the largest. We have the Sun. It has the radius of 696,342 kilometers (432,690 miles); that is the size of 109 Earth planets. It is also the biggest star in our solar system. Speaking of stars, you look at pictures of our solar system, and there are so many to count. It would be impossible to count every single star in our solar system and come up with an accurate number. However, after thorough research, scientists believe that there are about two trillion galaxies in the universe. They determine that there is an average of 100 million stars between galaxies, and the number of stars that our galaxy has could be as high as one trillion. So yes, that is a lot of stars.
Filling My Cart With Crystals
The life of a shopper can be interesting and exciting – especially if you prefer online shopping. After all, online shopping is convenient and can be extremely addictive; and online businesses know that. Imagine how many products one can run into online in one hour as oppose to browsing offline at a physical store in the same amount of time. Now with social media integrating with online businesses, it gives many companies an opportunity to market their products so much easier and quickly captures the attention of not only online shoppers but billions of social media users as well.
The Upgrade I Need To Succeed
Almost every year, I struggled with keeping my New Year’s resolutions. I am sure that I am not alone and many of us have been there plenty of times. We say we want to lose weight. We say we want to quit smoking. We say we want to stop procrastinating. We say we want to start being nicer to others. The list of things that we want to change about ourselves are endless. Many of us would start when the new year begins.
Life Is Like A Boxing Match
When I think of writing about Black notables, I think of the times of when I had those assignments in elementary school. As I ponder of someone who I should discuss in this topic, there are so many trendsetters and trailblazers to choose from. I look back and realize that many have inspired me while I was growing up. Without a shadow of a doubt, the list of innovators and inspirational figures are endless. Sure, I could go old school style by talking about someone famous and who went down in history books. I could pick someone easy and well known. I could pick someone I know who has been a great influence in my life.
The Joy Of Clips And Canva
I am completely amazed at the evolution of photo editing. How we alter photos have gotten easier and easier and easier. Now, it has gotten so easy that my 9 (almost 10) year old son can do it. The technology we have to edit almost everything under the sun is absolutely mind-blowing. Back in the 1980’s, I had no clue what photo editing was. In the 1990’s, I knew about photo editing, but I thought it was one of the most complicated projects to complete. At the time, I assumed that only professionals as smart as Albert Einstein can only perform this task. By the time we entered the 21st Century, I became very aware that anyone can edit photos or photoshop. However, the tools I had made the process very time consuming for me. Now that smartphones are extremely popular, and there are many apps to choose from, I can now edit photos in as little as five minutes – depending on how I want my photos to look at the end.
