90s TV Shows
I have to admit, the 90s was my favorite time as a kid. All the cool toys, music, movies, TV shows, and so on. But I am here to talk about some of my favorite kid TV shows as a little girl. A lot of my favorite TV shows were mostly from the 90s. Here are some of my favorite TV shows I watched and still watch now.
Ladies, we all have to admit we all love Elvis Presley and we all think he was one of the most handsome men on Earth. But before he became the King of Rock, he was born Elvis Aaron Presley on January 8th, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi. He did have a twin brother named Jesse, but sadly, he died as a stillborn. Elvis was raised by loving parents. His family had a little bit of money and they moved a lot. He was devoted to both of his parents, especially his wonderful christian mother, Gladys. Elvis Presley and his family went to the Assembly of God Church—that is where Elvis got a strong influence for gospel music. On Elvis Presley's 11th birthday, his mother bought him his first guitar. A few years later, he won a talent show at Humes High School in Memphis, Tennessee. When he graduated high school, he worked so many jobs while working on his music career. His first demo record became known as Sun Studio. Then, Sam Phillips, a record label owner, took Elvis Presley under his wing to help him with his music career. Elvis finally began touring and got his first single called "That's All Right" in 1954.
The Day I Lost My Grandma
March 4, 2002, I found out that my grandma had passed away. I thought it was all a dream, until I saw the look on my mom's face. All I could do was lay on the floor and cry all night long. I loved my grandma so much. Every time I would go visit her, she and I would go out to eat and have a very good day together. She spoiled me to death. My grandma taught me how to cook a lot of her best recipes. My grandma was a very short, funny lady. She got along with everybody. All her neighbors loved her. She never had problems with anybody. My mom and I cherish so many memories of her.
My Wonderful Family
This a picture of my family and I on my wedding day. As you can see, we can't be serious for pics sometimes. But this story is about my crazy and funny family. Some of my family members are not in the pic. Here is my family and I want to introduce them to you.
My Love for My Little Girl
When I had my daughter, I never thought I would have so much love for her like this. I can't tell you how much I love my daughter. When I found out I was pregnant for the second time around, I was so excited and nervous because I already have a little boy who is a ball of energy. But when my husband and I found out that we were having a little girl, we were so happy. I always wanted a daughter ever since I was a little girl. I would dress up my dolls and rocked them to sleep. There is something about having a daughter that makes me smile and blush every day. My daughter, Isabella, can be shy, but she is a loud energetic little girl. When she gets excited, she yells and balls up her fists and shakes them. The things that she does to make me smile and laugh are priceless. When she gets older, I can see a her being a girly girl. She will be in cute little dresses and cute pink or red skirts. She will also have cute pigtails with little bows in her hair. Once she reaches that age where she needs me for things, I will be there for her when she needs me. If she wants to talk about boys, I'm always here. When the boy breaks her heart, I will be there every step of the way. Plus her father and brother, Joseph, they just might break the poor guy's neck. When she has her quinceañera, I will help her through the whole process and everything. And of course her father will, too. He will probably pay for most of the things for her quince. All she has to do give him those puppy eyes and beg her daddy for it and he will give it to her.
Depression is a hard thing to go through. I have been through depression since I was really young. When I lost my grandma in 2002, and my grandpa in 2012, I felt so miserable and depressed. I felt like I lost two of my best friends. I was really close to my grandparents. When I lost my grandma, I started hanging out with the wrong crowd. And I also was getting into a lot of trouble at school. I skipped school and my attitude was very horrible. Then, I was sexually assaulted from when I was 7 to 16 years old. My depression got worse and worse by the minute. I thought nobody loved or cared about me at all, because people I trusted with my life would hurt me. It was hard for me to trust other people in my life. When I started dating my husband, he would try to hold me or try to get close to me. But I would always push him away because I just got out of a very abusive relationship before I started dating him. I was so scared that my husband would hurt me just like my ex boyfriend did. But he was so patient and kind with me. It took me about a good year to finally let him get close to me.
Rihanna is one the top pop/R&B artists in the world. Before she became a famous artist, she was born Robyn Rihanna Fenty on February 20, 1988 in St. Michael Parish, Barbados. She is oldest of three children of her parents Monica, who is an accountant. And her father Ronald, who is a warehouse supervisor. Rihanna's childhood wasn't always a walk in the park. Her father had struggled with drugs and alcohol, which hurt his marriage to Rihanna's mother. They divorced when Rihanna was a teenager. Throughout her childhood, Rihanna dealt with horrible headaches. She never told her friends or classmates at all about the headaches. She didn't want to be teased about it. When things became too much for Rihanna at home, she turned to music to help her with her troubles. When she came of teen years, her and two of her best friends formed a girl group and scored an audition with Evan Rodgers. He loved Rihanna and knew she had what it took to make it in the music business. It was like the other girls didn't even exist at all. So when Rihanna was 16 years old, she left Barbados to move in with Evan Rodgers and his wife to Connecticut to work on her demo. In 2005, Rihanna landed an audition for Def Jam Records, which Jay-Z is the president of now. She sang in front of Jay-Z and she was signed. A few months later, Rihanna released her first hit song "Pon De Replay," from her first debut album 'Music of the Sun.' Her song went to number two on the Billboards chart. Her first album went to number ten on the Billboards. Then, Rihanna released her second album called 'A Girl Like Me.' Two major hits came from the album. "SOS" and "Unfaithful" were her two major hits from that album. In 2007, Rihanna decided to change from teen pop star to sex symbol for her next album 'Good Girl Gone Bad.' Her most popular song from this album is "Umbrella," featuring Jay-Z. "Umbrella" won Rihanna her first Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Other hits from the album were "Shut Up and Drive" and "Don't Stop the Music." The following year, Rihanna released 'Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded' with bigger hits like "Disturbia," "Take A Bow" and "Hate That I Love You." Just when you thought she was done making hits after hits, she released her album 'Rated R' with singles like "Hard" and "Rude Boy." Her album 'Loud' became commercially popular with the hit songs "What's My Name," "Only Girl (In the World)" and "S&M." Rihanna didn't just make hits, she collaborated with other artist like Eminem ("Love the Way You Lie"), Jay-Z ("Run This Town"), Kanye West ("All Of The Lights"), and Maroon 5 ("If I Never See Your Face Again"). In 2011, Rihanna released her sixth album 'Talk That Talk' with her hit song "We Found Love" with DJ Calvin Harris. The song won her a Grammy for Best Short Form for a music video. Rihanna did make a few headlines like she had an affair with Jay-Z. She laughed it out when she heard about it. She hit headlines again when she was assaulted by Chris Brown. Rihanna became a spokesperson for domestic violence. Rihanna did date a few good looking guys. Her and LA Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp did date for a while. But the couple went their separate ways. Her Grammy winning album 'Unapologetic' had number one hits like "Diamonds" and "Stay" featuring Mikky Ekko. This album was her first album to hit number one on the billboards. She worked with Coldplay on a song called "Princess of China." And she collaborated with Eminem again on a song called 'The Monster.' Around that time she decided to star in some movies like "Battleship" and "Home." In 2014, Rihanna changed from Def Jam Records to Jay-Z's Roc Nation Records. August 2015, Rihanna announced she was going to be key adviser for The Voice's Season nine. That same year she did a collaboration with Kanye West and Beatles singer Paul McCartney on "Four Five Seconds." Another hit song she made was "Bitch Better Have My Money." Then in 2016, she released a song called "Work" with fellow rapper Drake. That song is so catchy that it will stay in your head forever. Then Rihanna decided to do more acting. She was on the show Bates Motel. And she was also in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Now she is going to be in a movie with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway called Ocean's 8. A female spin off of "Ocean's Trilogy." Rihanna is a multi-talented singer and actress. Her song "Love On The Brain" is one of the best songs she ever sang ever. It's a really powerful song. That's another song that will get in your head quickly. You will sing it in your sleep. Rihanna will always be the Barbadian Princess of the world.
