• PlannerCon 2018, San Francisco Weekend: Day 3

    Sunday, March 4 On Sunday, I got a lot of sightseeing done! …Yes, I did skip out on my workshop session #4: Digital Tricks and Planning –because I questioned the type of practical advice I would be given. It also did not help that this workshop leader gave a speech on Saturday afternoon, and again on Sunday morning.  I was getting an overload from him it seemed. I did support his non-profit for Foster Youth– called Evolve U– on Friday night, and had a nice conversation with one of the Foster Youth. I also stayed for Sunday’s opening by Louise and got to hear Nicole Rixon from Sweet Stamp Shop…

  • Finally, A (Healthy) Brunch Shop in South Florida!

    For those that know me, brunch is my favorite meal to have on the weekends. It most likely has to do with the fact that I sleep in a lot longer on the weekends— with my preferred wake-up time being after 11am… although I do sometimes settle for 10am. When I wake up around this time, I do not care how close it is to noon (or even if it is noon by the time I’m finished with my morning duties), but I want breakfast food as an option. Nothing heavy, just my fruits, juice, and a pancake or waffle. Now, I live in “Miami,” and one may think that…

    The month of February has been off to a very fast start—even though January seemed to have lasted forever. i’ve already had to spend money on bills, bills, bills…. but, i have been dying for February to come. Not only is it BLACK HISTORY MONTH— but I am a huge Marvel fan and cannot wait to see the new Black Panther Movie in theaters on February 15th! I will get made up to simply go to the movies and watch it, because I’m Black and February commands I be extra about my blackness whenever i want to. Four days ago I made a blog post where I mostly updated about…

  • Call Me By Your Name (CMBYN). A Review

    This past Saturday, on December 23rd, I went to see the movie Call Me By Your Name, at The Paris Theatre on W 58th St. My friends– new and long acquainted–and I had originally intended to go ice skating, but it rained and was cold all day on Saturday. So my newly acquainted friend recommended we go see this new movie at the theatre, and I am glad that we received this recommendation. It is very rare to get me to go and see a romance film, a drama film, and even rom-coms. But I LOVE a good film. So, from time to time, I find myself only interested in watching…

  • The [not so] Automatic Millionaire. A review…

    One of the things that I liked about this book was that I was already doing much of what it advocated-- and I'm not a millionaire. Hence, the 'not so' automatic nod in the title of my posting. However, I have learned quite a bit of new things that I can also do, to practically improve my financial standing...
