well i am here freezing!!!! i so hate the winter with all my heart. I've always say that new york will be perfect without a winter. Life will be so much easier and fun if only SUMMER existed in this world. Well i am trying to go to Florida for college, for this same reason,winter, i am always running away from winter because it is so annoying having ashy skin, and chapped lips, and wearing 10 layers of clothing, it is just frustrating.
Today in class we were reading "Vagina Monologues" they were so funny but at the same time touchy. One monologue said that vagina get angry and thinking about it Vagina do get angry, they get angry every month because we human bother them a lot. The monologues were so interesting and although I laugh about the things they were saying, it hurts me as a women to know that in parts of the world womens are greatly discriminated against

Well i am sooo stress out with all this college stuff that i have to do. Well today i applied to the University Of Central Florida, because like you all know i really really want to go to Florida because i hate the winter and in Florida the weather is nice and warm even in DECEMBER! I also want to go far away from home because i want to be more independent and be able to do whatever i want without telling MAMI or PAPI where am going, or what am doing or who i hang out with. One of the main reason i want to go is because i will have the liberty f go to DR because now they be saying that i cannot go but if i am living and independent life, i can go without having to tell them. Well i am praying for the university of central Florida to accept me because i really want to go there.

I went to see Race on broadway. The play starrs Kerry Washington, David Grier and James Spader from Boston Legal. It was about a white man who was accused of raping a black woman and his law firm was trying to decide if they should represent him and if he was innocent or guilty. It was a great show and I'm working on that story.

MediaTakeOut.com told us the viewers yesterday morning Rihanna's people would be REDUCING the price of her CD to 99 CENTS. Big shocker right? And by the afternoon, Rihanna's label Def Jam made the move.
What's even MORE interesting is that during the meeting where Rihanna's team were trying to figure out what to do. The insider explains, "It seemed like [one of the execs] was more interested in trying to make it look like your site was wrong [about Rihanna's sales being off] than in trying to make sure that Rihanna's sales were better."
Rihanna Def Jams biggest female artist is in some REAL TROUBLE!!!

Well, let me tell you people that i am doing great in school, all my grades are 90 and above except for chemistry that i have a unknown grade.LOL... I am doing so much better with my life because this psychiatry thing is just really helping me. I am sooo stress out with the college thing because i am trying to apply to a lot of colleges but money is tight so i have only apply to CUNYs, ST.Johns,FIU, and LIU. I am also thinking about going to study to DR, life is just so much easier there , but it will be way better if i study here because this is "America" and i have more opportunities, moneywise.

Well, I am almost done with my Preparartion for College article. I think its pretty good, im glad that i am almost done. I am thinking of doing a story on a tenement museum. I know it sounds like a boring topic, but i am very interested in the museum because it is different from other museums in New York City. Musuems in New York are so common like art museums and stuff, and this is a unique museum , especially the history of it. Im also interested in doing a story in a Asain Museum, but then museums are becoming to be a boring topic. I want to do an article on things that would interest teenagers but i dont know. I am not even a creative person, well we'll see....
Thursday, November 12, 2009
I think it's important that we write informative and interactive pieces for the magazine. Teens are not going to want to read about things that they can't relate to or has no impact on them. I know I don't want to. So far with the first issue I think that we've done pretty good with that. As I said before the issue looks great.

Am a Forex trader. Why ? becouse it a 24hr open 5.5 days a week unlike the Stock Market which is open 6am to 4pm. And the money is faster to make. 25 dollers to open a account with most brokers. ^_^
Wednesday, October 14, 2009
The other day I introduced my friend to harlem live. I think he likes the program. I just told him to come with me to harlem live one day and he I think probably decided he wanted to join. He just willing came along. I think about referring other people to Harlem Live. Introducing people to the program has a down side. If they do something wrong you look bad with them. I don't like looking bad because of what a friend did. It messes up my reputation. I think that a person shouldn't be looked at because of what their friends do. If a friend does something wrong it doesn't mean that I will do the same thing. Another downside to introducing someone is that then you have to explain every thing to them.

I'm excited that two of my team members became editor in chief but of course I'm jealous. I'm kind of upset that I didn't get the title. I think that I proved myself this summer with all the responsibility I took on and bringing my team to victory. I asked a few people if I was overlooked due to age, but I don't know. I got different answers from everyone.
It really hurts me when I see people who intern for a few weeks and get titles that I've never got. I'm not completely bummed because not everyone makes it and everyone isn't supposed to. People like Shem and Kamal were never appointed as Editor-in- Chief and they're doing great things to this day. Shem's a great graphic desinger and Kamal's still doing his thing, so I'm just gonna keep doing my thing.
Anywhoo, overall, I've learned so much from being apart of HarlemLive period. Everything I spoke about in the last presentation was true. I'm such a better communicator than I ever was. I'm just excited for the fall and I'm going to step my production up.... I'm not giving up. My time will come
Friday, August 14, 2009
Today was a very long day. However my team won yay. I am a little disappointed that I didn't get editor and chief, but thats just another goal I have to set for next year and trust me I WILL GET IT! I am happy for Dacia, Carlos, and Brittany they deserve it I watched Brittany bust her ass on a daily basis making phone calls, powerpoints, and making shore the work got done. Everytime I went into the computer room Dacia was editing something so I give them there props...
Wednesday, August 12, 2009
I'm so happy. In fact, I'm completely satisified about how everything went down. I must say that we made a big improvement. That's what happens when you're around good spirited people who can work together and get things done. I have no regrets and this summer was a great experience. I just wish that people could have been more respectful, so we could have all enjoyed this summer.

I'm feeling kind of sick today, what else is knew. Anyways my team won on friday and I am estatc about that. This was the secound week in a row we won. I know there is alot of rumors out there about how we stole another groups idea blah blah blah. Well We and or I didnt steal anyones idea. That friday myself and three other of my group members stayed after the presentation and came up with that idea. However, we didnt agree on it until Monday mourning. Therefore we didnt steal anything! Back to what I was saying before we won and were very happy about it and I hope we win tomorrow aswell.

Today i finally registered for classes. Well i have a $1,7hundred and something dollars to pay before i start. I'm not really sure why I'm going to college anymore which is kind of ridiculous. But i guess I have to start some where to get to where i wanna go. I didn't make a big schedule I'm just taking the basic courses this semester; counseling, sociology, intensive writing, and remedial math and i was thinking about gym to get it out of the way but since one of the helpers told me I need it to graduate i thought to myself that i shouldn't take a class i don't want to take when i know im probably not going to graduate from this school.
"[Chorus - 4x]
Oh when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you ohh, it all falls down
[Verse - Kanye West]
Man I promise, she's so self conscious
She has no idea what she's doing in college
That major that she majored in don't make no money
But she won't drop out, her parents will look at her funny
Now, tell me that ain't insecurrre
The concept of school seems so securrre
Sophmore three yearrrs ain't picked a careerrr
She like fuck it, I'll just stay down herre and do hair"
~ Kanye West 'All falls down' lyric
OMGosh I't's almost the end of the Summer youth media challenge and there is still tension amongst the teams... o well life goes on.

It was great to read everyone's memoirs today. Thanks to all who brought them in. You got points for bringing them, and you'll get more points for putting them on the website. But don't just do it for the points...everyone has worked hard on their memoirs, and it will be nice to make them available for others to read.
If you brought your memoir and I saw it, it's easy! Make changes to your memoir based on my edits and any edits or comments from the person who read it in the workshop. See your team leader or Gisely about getting it on the website.
If you didn't bring a memoir today, you still have a chance. It just will require a little more work, but it's doable by Monday. Have someone at HL edit your memoir. You can also email it to me, but I'd have to get it by Friday. Go through the same process you would to put a news article online.
Extra points if you include a photo. Add a photo of yourself or of something that goes with your story.
I see two memoirs are online already! Yeah, Wesley and Charlene and thanks! I hope to see more on the site tomorrow.
The two journalist Laura Ling and Euna Lee...were finally brought back to the United States on behalf of former President Bill Clinton and may a couple of undercover people...(who really knows). They were in a Korean prison for 140 days. That muust have been a night*mare. I don't understand why they were thrown in Prison anyways. They were probably being pest, since most journalist are. It's really terrifying what journalist go through when they're only finding information to reveal to the rest of the world. That is what scares me. There is so much that we common people don't know about and many of us don't care to know because we are simply living our lives as if we aren't apart of something bigger. It's really annoying that people are annoyed by journalist too, they play a big part in most of our lives.
I met a news anchor Jackie Reid, on Saturday...well she use to be an anchor on BET nightly news, before it was canceled and I tried to act as if i didn't know her. I was talking to the guy she was dating about my future; such as college and career choices and they both gave me good advice as to what i should do such as take a business class so what ever i end up doing i can own it. Also they told me to never be afraid of change and trying new things until i find what i am meant to do. I'm such an undecided person because i want to know what i was designed to do. And i want my life to be purposeful and what i do as a career to have a purpose basically.
But it'll come to me eventually...then again i do get confuse because i thought that i have to go out and get what it is that i want. But if i want what i don't know then i think trying different things will help me find it...
I was told that a memoir I previously wrote and posted had something missing. Well alot missing however, I was told by numerous people that was a great essay. the person that edited it loved it "Jason" so I dont comprehend how this person doesnt. He wasnt the only one though out of at least twenty people on other person didnt like it my aurnt. She stated that I need to write why I like Karrine Steffans and I did add that to my memoir. This ther editor stated that I need to remove or rephrase my first sentence which I refuse to do. I love my memoir and I will not change it unless I see fit! However, I would like other opinions so here is the link to my article hope you guys love it as much as I do!

Today me and the team...TEAMLIVE! went to a neighborhood in Brooklyn..Crown heights. I think that the neighborhood was pretty much like any other neighborhood. There was a large population of West Indians in the area and we got to talk to them about the whole culture there.
But anyways...the red teams 'take down green team plan' or Nyiesha's plan is really getting the team upset. There is a lot of petty drama between my team and the red. I don't think that its necessary..but it is a competition. It seems like the yellow team is on track and happy with thier location, but who knows...Friday we'll see how everything and everyone turns out.
I think we should just all get along...but sometimes my thoughts tend to be unrealistic.
PLASE DON'T JUDGE ME!!!
So, today my team and I went to 42nd street. It was for our neiborhood story. I interviewed two people. It was pretty cool. There is always something to do in 42nd. We got to watch 2 performers. It was pretty cool. The first perfromer which Maurita interviewed was pretty cool. He was nice. His trick was weird lol. Another perfomer was a lady who did some fire stuff. what she did was crazy lol. Overall going to Time Square was prettuy okay.

Many girls want to feel physically and emotionally a love that family nor friends can give. It's almost like the other half to the heart or a gap that has been filled when a love is found. But why do we feel this way? Shouldn't we already be complete? I think relationships suck, from the i love yous to kisses and hugs. It use to be a dream for me to marry my high school sweet heart at a young age and have kids...maybe because i watch TV too much. Or maybe i just picked the wrong guys.
Being in a relationship, a good one makes you feel like you have someone no matter what for as long as the relationships last. Most girls feel they need to have a boyfriend or at least have some guy they talk to or mess around with. It's so ridiculous how self esteem can be raised on what boys think about you. If you aren't being approached by guys or Holla'd, receiving complements on something you've changed about yourself, then does that mean you're ugly? I don't think so so because there are guys who don't care how you look.
I always try to learn from the mistakes of my peers in my own relationships, But when i experience something myself, i feel like i become more wise.
I think girls my age shouldn't stress over a broken heart, losing their virginity and impressing guys or anything else that's minor, the only thing is realizing that we get upset over minor things. I feel like if we paid attention to what WE want then we wont have time to deal with irrelevant 'guy problems'

I was out all day with the team. It was sooo hut and humid and sunny. We accomplished a lot hopefully it will all come through on the tape that we show the judges... its nothing worse than to work hard for something than lose because of a minor reason. I think HarlemLIVE in the summer is so interactive but its so hard to focus all the things we need to in one week. I know its preparing each of us for something. Alot of us focus on the presentation part.
Cant wait till we find out who wins and what happens at the end of the summer media challenge.
So, every week is going by so fast. There is two weeks left til the program is over. I am shock because the summer flew by so fast, next thing you know school is going to begin asap. Im alittle excited to gp back to school because i am going to be a junior yay.

Yesterday, I went Kayakingith two of my group members. We had a world of fun. Teneille did most of the work on the Kayak cause I go tired. That was a work out pushing that paddle against the tide. It was alot of work...too much to be exact. Yes, I got my hair wet and yes on the way home people looked at me liked I had urinated on myself, but I didnt care. However, the best part about the whole thing was that it was FREE!!! I love anything free :-). I would love to do it again...I had so much fun.

I took a class with Matt. We had to go bike riding and take pictures for the class. Then it started raining a little. I thought we could continue with the class But then it started raining harder and harder that by the time we got back to HarlemLive we looked like we went to the pool with our clothes on!

It's 3am and just watched Lolita that was on PBS last night. Kubrick's first or just early films with James Mason, Peter Sellers and Shelly Winters with whom I would work later and visit in her upper west side apartment when my friend Ellis Amburn and her were working on her biography. I remember I broght her a tuna sandwhich and a black and white malt. She was so heavy set at the time , she wore a dress that matched the couch she sat on so you kinda couldn't tell where she began or ended.....

As promised yesterday, we went to Barack Obama's old apartment. It's funny because I've passed it plenty of times, but had no idea. We got a shot in front of the building. We actually went inside to interview people, but we were kicked out by the management. Then we just interviewed pedestrains walking by. It was so cool. I saw an old friend Carly and we caught up. Everything was cool. I'm actually about to log my notes. And work on my MTA story.
I learned how to post stories on the website and im pretty happy about that since No One in my group dont know how to do that -___-. So i posted 3 stories and my profile. I learned something new today YAY lol.
well, im pretty tired and im heading home soon...
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
yesterday I wore my contacts for the second time. I've only wore them twice and they feel really uncomfortable. I only have them for 14 days.... Well now 12 days. They are only the free trial meaning that I am testing them out until i actually get the real contacts...but they have been so much work to put in and take out. I get so nervous when i do anything that has to do with my eyes.
Michael Jackson was never convicted of being a pedophile. HE was accused. I can accuse the writer of that blog of being an "ASS" but that doesn't make it so, does it? He was in a court and found not guilty. If he was a pedophile we'd be hearing from dozens of young men coming forward (now and before) to say so. And the dude from the first "ACCUSATION" has later recanted his story and said his dad put him up to it for the $$$. If your child was truly molested would you honestly settle for money or would you want to see it thru so that the accused actually serves time? If u settle for the money then what does that say about you as a parent???

So, today i went to the NBC tour. It was pretty cool. Before the tour i saw Alex Rodriquez and I was very excited because i never saw him that close and because hes good looking =]
So, at the tour I met the lady of the host 'Who wants to be a millionaire'. I forgot her name, i think its something Meredith. Anyways, she was so nice. She was doing an interview and we got to watch her talk. Also another famous person name Tori Spelling passed by behind me and i had no idea. We got to go to many different studios and take photos. So the tour overall was pretty cool.

Writing assignment is NOT on your blog. Bring it to class!
Write a few sentences about the dictionary word you were given in class. Extra points if you add a picture.
My word was silver.
Silver reminds me of my grandmother's hair. She's 90 and has a full head of thick hair that has been silver for over 30 years. I know her hair used to be dark, but it's been as silver as a dime ever since I can remember. Unfortunately, I have hair like my other grandmother, who has been almost bald since she was in her 70s!
Decide what your memoir will be about and write the first paragraph. Bring it to class written on paper or typed.

For the people who aren't familiar with how HarlemLive works, in the fall, people work individually and cover stories alone. It's less stressful because teams aren't in existence. Regardless, what we do is fun and more than just a job. It gets more intense in the summer because of the competition. Nonetheless, nothing is personal. Everyone should respect everyone & it starts with yourself. You can not control what others do to you, but how you react.
There should be no animosity between teams whatsoever. Goofs are a joke. They mean nothing personally. If someone (regardless to what team they're on) is fooling around, isn't doing what they should, then they'll be goofed. It's as simple as that. It doesn't mean that you aren't liked or whatever, you just weren't doing anything. People please don't take anything that happens this summer regarding the competition personal. This is supposed to be enjoyable. Get with the program and play the game!!

2) Assignment to bring to class: Write down three ideas of what your memoir could be about.
- You're not writing your life story from birth! Think of one event or one experience you could write about.
- It could take place over a summer, a month, a week, a day, or even an hour!
- Think of things from your childhood, from 5 years ago, from last year, from this year, and even from this week that would make interesting stories for your memoir.
Bring the ideas to class typed or written on a piece of paper. Just write a phrase or sentence for each idea. Don't start writing your memoir yet.
1. The time I was living in Ecuador, and I got locked out of my apartment and had to swing from a rope into the window.
2. The time when I was 5 and I got a cat for my birthday.
3. The banana story when I gave a girl a banana in the NYC marathon and wound up knowing her.

Today at HL im working on a presentation for tomorrow. Its been kinda hard to work together with 10 or maybe 12 other people. Theres so many views and opinions and somebody who doesn't know what to do. We've already been goofed 2 times by nyiesha. So my team has been on the look out for absolutely anyone who wants to GOOF off. Working with photoshop on the presentation with katheryn is kind of difficult because ive been using photoshop for 2 years and still dont know how to do even the most simple things. I make things work so much better with the paint programs thats on pc's...Well im going back to the presentation setup...
btw my team is the best even though we have our ups and downs we all enjoy doing what we are soppose to do.
I'm extremely stressed. My mom just killed my night, with her bull. Anywhoo, I have an amazing team with great people who are motivating. We have a list of stories that we intend to cover next week starting Monday. Carlos, DeDe and Michael are covering a Gay Exhibition on Monday. Nydera, Olivia and I are going to cover a book signing on Tuesday. We have a lot to do. I'm still working on my MTA story. I terribly miss Michael Jackson.
