Today I saw MARY J. BLIGE.... I was so stoked. I've seen Mary before at her cd signing at Carol's Daughter. That cold day which was December 23 of 07', Mary was 45 minutes late. I stood right there and waited. Today however, she was 2 hours late.... I wasn't worried at all. We had a great time talking about our issues and expressing our opinions on different topics. There was a group of girls there, all black except one.
Hey everyone this is Gorgeous Day Day and im back, went on a little break but i am back. now today something very special happen. a few months back we had a meeting with a few teachers from teachers collage and cnn, etc. and one of the teachers from teacher collage was very impress with me and everything i was telling him about. Mr. Sean Telles came by HarlemLIVE today and he had told me how impress i was when i was talking at the meeting we had a few months back and he had won an ipod touch and he said he had a random thought about HarlemLIVE and he Thought Of me and gave me his prize that he won at work, an ipod touch. Thank You Sean. now that im back in town i cant wait to get back to business cause the site need to be updated, i need to get some stuff done personally and im so ready for another summer at harlemlive.

I was astonished today as I entered 4 dollars in the vending machine and it said invalid. I went over to the booth and asked the guy for a $4 metro. He looked at me confused and shaked his head. He then pointed to a poster on the small, rectangular corner of the window. THE FARE HAS INCREASED TO $2.25 instead of $2. I couldn't believe it. It's funny because even though I'm journalist and I'm involved in the media, watch the news, etc, I never believe in these changes until they actually happen.

So much has been going on for me this past month that i have not have time to take everything in. I finished my internship with fireball the basketball tournament that iv been working for, it was great i never had so much fun i witnessed great games every week with players like the new york knicks Al Harrington, the minnesota timberowolves Ryan Gomes and Sebastian Telfair and many more notables. I also had the great honor to recite a poem in the nuyorican cafe, it was the most exciting and enticing thing i have been part of in my new born career as a poem writer, The stage toke a hole new meaning to me as i got in the zone and delivered what to my peers and family say was a flaw less piece of art that reflected well the emotion i was feeling when i wrote the poem. After all the great blessings came the depressing Regen's test that had me stress so much so that i couldnt sleep most of the night thinking about my consular and how she said that if i failed one test i failed to meet requirements to stay in that school.... so stressing....i tried my best now all i can do is wait for the results cant and pray. Well with the tournament, the show at the nuyorican and the Regen's i just been thinking about my life and how much it has changed i went from this kid with no ambition living for the moment to what i am now woooooooow i guess mom was wrong but ill leave that for my therapist haha............
Hey u all... As u read above today is my last day at Harlemlive until next year in the fall. It was such a pleasure to get the opportunity to learn new things about journalism that I never did know before. I had a blast going out on stories to get the public opinion as well as getting people recognized on a specific topic. I so wish I can come during the summer but I have other plans that I must do before the summer is over. Thinking of that I just realized that summer is here and school is just about over. The 29th is my last day which means FUN AND MORE FUN!!!! WOOOOOOOOO!! I cannot wait to do the things that weren't accomplished last year...I am going to miss seeing all my friends that I won't get the opportunity to see... After the 29th I am officially going to be a SENIOR which is big since we are going to be the first graduating class being that my school is new. A lot of great things are happening and I cannot wait to enjoy every bit of it.... BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!! lol

If you want to go to the movies, two good movies to watch if Hang Over and The Taking of the Pelham 123. Both movies are very good. If you want to have a good laugh, Hang Over would make you pee on you pants, it is so funny. The Taking of the Pelham is an action movie and it is worth watchinggg...
Its been such a long time ,well am writing because it may be the last time i write until September or October, because i am leaving to DR on friday. I am so exited about this trip because i have 2 years i dont go,and i really miss being there. I know that HL is going to really miss me, but i have to go LOL! and i will not miss a thing of my NY life. I am also kind of missing rich because he made joke and laugh and was a real funny guy making hie Elaine dance, and calling me step on me and stuff like that. I wil maybe miss sely,maybe am not sure LOL! Today i am also really pissed off because the board of Ed send me a letter telling me that i dont have enough credits to be promoted to 12 grade when i have 41 credits and i only needed 30 to pass to 12th grade.

Well Today I have an interview with the founder of Diaspora now, which is a Caribbean art based business. They sell different types of cultural art and its really pretty. They also sell different gifts that are handcrafted like handbags and pottery. Tomorrow I have a screening for this event called Youth Producing Change. They have various videos they will show and they all look quite interesting. I also am waiting for a response from this employee of Harlem Flo, which is a flower shop/ catering service. I saw many good reviews from customers of theirs. I guess that's it.

Yesterday I had my History regents (thank God it was only one part)... Ugh I am just thinking that after these regents school is over. I just have to focus and I will finally be able to relax..OMG I almost forgot I still a have Math B to take but thats all the way next week. AHHH I don't know how I am going to make it!!!!! I am also thinking what the heck am I going to do this summer if I don't get this JOB!!! I wanna have fun with my friends but a lot of them are going away so yea (TEAR)... As school winds down this means no more internship (another Tear) I am going to miss Harlemlive although I am most likely going to be back next year... Wow the year went by fast...

Lebron James is better than Kobe Bryant. Lebron is a monster on the court. Lebron averages 35 points a game. He is on his way to becoming better than MJ. Lebron might not be there now but he will be there soon. Kobe is the best now but Lebron will be better. Chris Paul should have won mvp about two years ago. But Kobe took it, I don't think he deserved it.
I lost my wallet what a thing. Every time I lose my wallet I find money for some reason. For example yesterday I lost my wallet and when I'm walking I find 2 dollars on the sidewalk. Thats really weird. Thats really extraordinary and it only happens to me. I am sure if a friend of mine loses his wallet he wont find money in the street. It could've been coincidence. Who knows, I think its pure luck.

In English we have to write something nice about one of our classmates. I got jenny. She is going to be easy because she is one of my good friends and an even greater person =). I have 3 graduation rehearsals, then its graduation. I agree with everything Anabel posed yesterday. From the crying to changing my mistakes. I won't be at Hl that much, but don't worry guys, when I'm on a break in college Ill visit=). SYEP didn't call me yet, which means one thing; I didn't get in...I'm trying to get other stories, but ugh...I got one for next week, thank goodness, because I know I'm going to bothered about getting one.

So i am glad that school is almost over since i am so tire and stressed out but have to admit that i am going to miss my friends at school. i know that for the most part i am not going to be in contact with most of the people that i talked to. I know that i am going to cry during graduation because all those memories with friends are going to come to my mind. I know my mother is going to my graduation and that the most important thing that matters to me. also hope that i get a better grade on my Global, and Physics regents. I am glad that i am getting out of High School. I wish i could go back and fix some of the mistakes i made. But i dont regret any of my experiences. After high school i am not going to be coming to Hl as much as i do now but at least i learned a lot from everyone at HL.
Its been about a week since you guys last seen from me. Im back now so you all can celebrate. Lol. Firstly prom was AMAZING. Loved it =). It was so short though. Everyone was giving me complements the whole night. I was like cinderella. I Danced with my girlfriends and my guy friend. Went home after but I didn't want to do that. I wanted to stay out the whole night. Its cool though. I am going to finish calling these people for the stories that I didn't finish last week. That's the way I wanted my hair to come out but its a little darker and its in less spots. These finals were killing me but its almost over. Going to sleep at 2 am for three night in a row is not good. Graduation is approaching fast...

This is writing tip #1 of 5 to make a you sound smarter.
(Throughout the day, I'll be sharing five grammar tips that are guaranteed to help you sound smarter. No previous experience needed. No messy applicators. No credit check necessary. Just pop back in and read them all for FREE. If you don't learn something, you may take advantage of our 24-hour money back guarantee!)
1. The Graduate
Attention all graduates (many of whom may have donned the traditional cap and gown just today), please note that you did NOT "graduate high school," nor did you "graduate college." Instead, you graduated from these venerated institutions.
If you say, "I graduated college," a certain population of English snobs will doubt if that's really the case. This "I graduated college" construction (subject-verb-object), indicates that you did something to the college. Did you graduate the college? Did you give it a cap and gown and sent it on its merry way with high hopes and absolutely no idea what was in store for it in the "real world"? No, the college actually graduated you, while you graduated from the college. There. Have I said "graduated" enough times? Graduated.
One down, four to go.
