It's raining


Why do people say "it's raining outside" isn't that a given. I mean seriously you don't say i'm in the bathtub in the bathroom.

But than again, i could be wrong. I highly doubt it.

Communication Research Methods [level 4000 course] starts at 12:30 and ends at 1:50. I believe I got here around 1:15. Its 1:28, and i'm so tempted to leave. B-O-R-I-N-G, doubly so.

It's a tuesday. I hate tuesdays. I have to work late, and i get restless and just want to go home. Really doesn't help that it's raining. Who doesn't like to be home when its raining.

On my couch, sipping hot chocolate, reading a book, snug under my blanket and drifting to sleep. Ooooo give me a sec, daydreaming...must snap out.

O' to be home. Resting, comfortable, relaxing.

It's raining, and i'm here in class miserable.

Save me.

My so called life

Right now i'm sitting in a sociology class with my best friend. This is actually her class not mine, i just chill with her for awhile because i don't have any class till 12:30 today. So we've made this a habit, yes i know i'm crazy for sitting in on a class that i don't even have to be in. But i look @ it like this, i get a free class and get to broaden my horizon with a class that i wouldn't have taken. I also sit in her other sociology class on MWF, sometimes. That is my so called life.

I believe i'm coming down with the flu. I have some of the symptoms. Body ache like crazy, stomach pains, chest pains and headache. Please don't let it be a the flu!! I so could have stayed at home today, but tonight is production night, i "must" stay.
My so called life.

The weather man lied this morning. I am dressed incorrectly for the weather today. I have on a skirt, sandles and a tank top. Its like a 50% chance of raining here. But its humid outside. I wanna go home
My so called life.

I'm going to sleep, this class is extra boring.

Racial Profiling

http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/11/02/football.muslim.ap/index.html

thats crazy. they wouldn't let them return to their seats. they moved them to another area. had police stand by where they relocated them, and escorted them to their vehicles. bizzare!

America! America! can we start stopping and white folks all over for looking suspicious. for their stupid tactics, and for just looking like wow you're white. let me detain you. make you miss the ballgame, children's birthday party, or just making it home on time.

racial profiling is crazy. and i love how the "man" is always so scared and since 'he's' scared he choose to pick on those who can't really stand for themselves.

i feel threatened. so i will pull you to the side to make sure i'm safe. even if i don't have basis to do it.

PROFILE the MAN!

Adult Life

YIKES!

I thought my phone had gotten cut off. Which would mean no dsl connection!!! But thankfully it was just that i had seperated the cord from the phone a tad bit while cleaning.

But i did fail to pay my phone bill last month...how the heck did i do that? I pay it along with my electric bill at the same time. Why the heck didn't i pay my phone bill on the 6th of October like i did my electric bill i have no idea. now my phone bill is $78. i will pay the $41 i owed for last month, and pay what i orginally owe this month later.

If its not one thing then its another. seriously. i'm broke. straight broke. and it sucks. eh. i just hope that i can keep gas in my car just to make it to school and back.

i need a real job. i might have to resign as news editor at school. i could write a whole post as to why. not in the mood. the thought of it makes me mad.

watching trading spouses...so curious to see this new mom freak out about religion.

and you call yourself a Christian.

Rosa Parks and others

I know I will probably receive a lot of slack for what I am going to write, but since this is my blog, and I associate the word blog with opinion, I am going to give my blog = opinion.

First and foremost I am not trying to sound anything like Cedric did on “Barbershop” but I do have to admit that I couldn’t agree with him more on what he said. I do want to say that I do have sympathy for any family in a time of grieving, and I do not judge people. A very valuable lesson I have learned, but I must say I don’t have to agree with things that others just assume I should agree with.

Mrs. Parks was not as we all know the first person to refuse to give up her seat on a bus. In the north, south, east or west. So why is she so famously recognized? Only advantage point she had, if you can call it that, is that she knew MLK. Another figure in history that I just cannot stand, I’ll have to write a part two just for that later. Currently Mrs. Parks is receiving all this honor and recognition and for what? For not getting up? She did nothing more than the next person, but because she knew MLK she was able to be the one to “start the bus boycott”. I’m sure way before MLK thought of a bus boycott and way before Mrs. Parks set down, there were many others who too were ready to start a boycott or sit – ins, but you won’t know of those people, because everyone cannot be important. MLK was already in the position to be the “leader” whether appointed or not. So uncle Beau and uncle Lester sure enough may have had the idea to start a boycott, but the odds of MLK losing his job, or being captured and whatnot was slim to none compared to the “two uncles” who faced losing their jobs, their families and being killed.

Not that MLK or Mrs. Parks didn’t face these same dilemenas, but MLK did have support and did have people to protect or at least watch his back. He had just as much to lose, but the odds where in his favor compared to a farmer in Alabama.

So what I am trying to say is this. Do I believe Mrs. Parks should receive all this honor? No. Anyone for that matter, we will ALL face the judgment and that’s not going to get her in to heaven any quicker than me donating $9000 billion dollars to charity. Often times we give more reverence to people than we do to him. Mrs. Parks is gone. Period. She lit a small spark, one that many people also contributed to, so why does Mrs. Parks get all the credit, what about the ones who were there also? What about the ones that were lynched? What about the ones that were attacked by dogs? What about the ones that died a silent death and we still don’t know about them? What about the ones that were not in the spotlight that also sacrificed?

Lets not give all honor and respect to just a mere individual. It wasn’t about one person. It too many, and many did more than imaginable.

Rest in peace to all of those who are no longer here. Who fought, who battled who died.
That’s whom we need to remember.

Newspaper

Wow, I'm quoted in a news article for Southern Digest [oct. 21]. Go to www.southerndigest.com and search for blogs. They actually spelled my name as Latasha, which is incorrect. But at least I know they are talking about me. I forgot that I even did that interview over the summer. It just so happened that we get the Southern Digest in our office at school. I am now currently the news editor of my schools paper, The Panther [pvpanther.com]. So we exchange papers with different University's. I was flipping thru Southern's paper, as I do every week, and it didn't dawn on me that I would be in the blog feature on the back of the paper, till hours later when i went searching for my name. And there it was, incorrect but my blog address and I guess the quotes that i gave, printed in black.

I was so proud of self. I sounded really well in the quotes. Though I believe I was misquoted.

I would never say African-American. I hate that word. Period. I'm sure I didn't say that. It would be "against my religion" or something.
