Computer Virus.......Ugh

If having a stomach virus this week ain't bad enough, as soon as I get rid of my stomach virus I have to deal with a computer virus. This is my first time ever experiencing a computer virus. It's insane that so many fake anti-virus programs exists. I was browsing one of those sites that contains jokes, pranks, etc. and instead of me having the last laugh, I became the laughing stock when this site installed a virus on my computer. What made it so bad was that I briefly browsed the site, left the site on my computer while I went to the restroom, and when I got back to the computer (only a matter of minutes) damage was already done. Mind you, I never experienced having to deal with a computer virus before, so I started thinking optimistically that Office Depot might sale some type of software program to remove the virus, but they informed me that they didn't. I would have to go to a computer repair company to get it removed. I started calling around and the majority of the places charged over $100, go figure. Luckily, I came across a place that only charged $40.00, but he said that this rate only applies if the computer isn't badly infected and he don't have to remove and reinstall all the computer programs. So I have my fingers crossed right now. I don't think it was badly infected because I closed down the computer before things got too bad. I'm not happy that I payed money for the Norton Anti-Virus software program and it didn't do its job of preventing this. I saw that it was blocking some of the attacks that were being made, but it did not block this one. Thank goodness for public places that have computers, such as colleges, libraries, etc. As I type, I am on a computer at one of the colleges I graduated from to give you all the 411. I dropped the computer off this morning, so hopefully I will be up and going again tomorrow. ***Lesson learned: Going on sites I know nothing about all to get a good laugh isn't even worth the money and hassel***.

Job Hunting

Hey all. I know it's been a little while since I have been on, I have been constantly job hunting and traveling back and forth out of town, so I been kinda busy. I'm gonna be home this week, but next week I will be leaving to go out of town again. Although I'm busy from constantly going, I have to say that I'm enjoyin it. Anything is better than staying in one place, confined in a little area and studying away. Anywho, back to the job hunt..........I graduated on May 01 and as of today, May 22, I still don't have a job and it sucks like crazy. I have been sending out so many resumes and things are still looking dull. I even went to a job fair in Orlando, FL and sad to say that it was an unsuccessful trip. I am trying so hard to remain encouraged, but it's kinda hard. My grandmother said that I should stop thinking about it so much and just let go and let God do his job. Once I let go then the perfect job opportunity will present itself. She's right, I just gotta do it. So everyone please keep me in your prayers and if you have any good job leads in Florida (preferably Orlando, FL), please send them my way. Just send me a message. I will keep you guys posted on everything and I will also be posting some new topics this week before I go out of town again. Love you all. Toodles :)

The Biggest Winners

"The Biggest Winner" is what they are in my eyes anywayz. I was so suprised to see such drastic transformations from the above contestants off of "The Biggest Looser" show. They look so good. It must feel so good to flaunt off their amazing bodies in front of the people who use to talk about them because of their weight. They must be speechless now.......................Moving right along to the title of the show. I don't think I could even bring myself to be on a show with such title. "The Biggest Looser," are you serious??? Regardless of how big or unattractive I was, I would not be content with anyone labeling me as such.

Finally........Going Our Separate Ways

After a year of having our ups and downs, me and my boyfriend have finally agreed to go our separate ways. To be honest though, it has been a long time coming, just like my graduation. We tried to make it work, but it's no point in trying to force something to work, when it is absolutely not working. For the longest it has felt like me and him were two different puzzle pieces, trying so hard to force ourselves to fit together. How can you force something to fit, if the two don't match together? Continuously forcing two things together is basically just a waste of time and unfortunate for both of us that's exactly what we did, waste each other time. He is a decent guy, but definitely not the one for me. In the end, I realized that we are just too incompatible. You can really tell a relationship is concluding when it's hard to remember one time the two of you had a conversation without arguing. The constant arguing does nothing, but bring on unwanted stress and stress is definitely something I can do without. I wish him much luck in the future. Now I can focus on myself and get this success wagon moving. Jumping into another relationship is the last thing I want to do, as a matter of fact, after going through all the chaos in this past relationship, I don't even have an urge to get back into another one. I will just take the time to learn from this past mistake so I don't repeat the same mistake in the future. Along with this breakup comes a new direction for my future. To all my fellow bloggers who are fortunate to possess a strong union with their significant other (i.e. Nikki Kisses, Mr. Nichols) please cherish every moment spent with him or her. There are so many people who are not fortunate to have such a special gift. I refer to it as a special gift, because although I believe that God created the perfect match for everybody on this earth, only a handful out of a large pool of people find that person. It is for this reason that I refer to it as a special gift. To the remainder of my fellow bloggers, my words of wisdom to all of you is don't give up on love. Although there are certain relationships that really makes you want to give up, don't do it because love is out there somewhere. I speak to myself as I say this to you, "Don't search for love, let love find you." Spend time getting to know God and yourself better, setting goals for yourself and accomplishing those goals, and renewing your mind, heart, and soul. Hugs and Kisses :)

Where Are They Now??? Deborah Cox

I don't know why, but one day, out of the blue, Deborah Cox popped up in my mind. I immediately start asking myself "Where is she now." I haven't heard anything from her in a minute. So I did a quick search and found her myspace page and realized that she had a new album out "The Promise" and several singles. Why I haven't heard any of it, I don't know, but anywho I will post one of her songs off her new album called "Did You Ever Love Me." in addition I will post one of her throw back videos "Nobody Suppose to be Here" (gotta love those throwbacks, lol). If you want to hear more of her music or find out more about what she is doing now, please check out her myspace page :

What a Gorgeous Baby......Get it Ms. Sandra

I know this pic and the news about Sandra's new addition to her family has been floating around the net and the newspaper stands for awhile now, but I still had to post this pic on my site. I fell in love with this pic when I first saw it earlier this week, the baby is so precious and really reminds me of my cousin's newborn. The baby name is Louis Bardo Bullock, who is 3 1/2 months old and born in New Orleans, LA. Congrats Sandra on your beautiful baby boy.



Fantasia's New Single "Bittersweet"

"Bittersweet," Fantasia's new single off of her 3rd album. Check it out below. What do you think? Are you guys and gals anxious for her new album to come out, with a release date of July 13, 2010, by the way.

HP's Version of Apple's iPad

That's why they say that whenever you are competing on the basis of differentiation, you have to ensure that your product is not easily imitated or this is exactly what will happen. Don't know when HP's product is suppose to come out, but if it comes out near the holiday season, Apple better be in the process of putting out something new unless it wants to face the possibility of missing out on sale opportunities. Check out HP's counter move to Apple's iPad in the video below:

2010 College Graduate.......Finally!!!

Hello to all of my blogger family members. Lol. As of Saturday, May 1, 2010, I am officially a college graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management. I am so very proud of myself. It has truly been such a long and tough road. There were so many times I wanted to give up and if anyone else were in my shoes, they probably would have given up. However, by the grace of God I was determined not to give up until I made it to the finish line. Thank you God. Now since my college journey has come to a conclusion, I am actively job junting for a job within my career field. I started job hunting a few days after I finished my last class, but thus far I still do not have any strong leads. There have been so many people constantly telling me, "Well, it's not gonna be as easy as you think it will be, there ain't no jobs out there" or "You don't know how long it's gonna take you to get a job, there are so many other graduate competing for the same thing" or "Do you know how many people graduate from college and don't even be working in the field they go to school for." These comments are just to name a few. Yeah, I know it's not gonna be easy, but what is in life??? College wasn't easy, but God saw me through it and I know he will see me through my job hunt as well. As the song says, I know he didn't bring me this far to leave me. He continued giving me strength when I wanted to give up because he has a purpose for me and I refuse to give up until I fulfill that purpose.
Now moving right along to the graduation ceremony. The ceremony started early, 9:30 am to be exact. It was held at the civic center and it was PACKED. It almost felt as if I was at a huge football stadium. I was nervous walking out there because being in front of a very large group of people makes me feel that way. Everything was fine up until I realized how small our business group was. Every other group (i.e. Professional Studies) significanly outnumbered us. Needless to say, I was suprised and embarrassed. To make ourselves feel better, classmates stated that the reason why our group was small in comparison to everyone else is because the College of Business is the hardest. I needed something to make sense out of it, so I accepted that reason. Lol. After the graduation ceremony, my family and I went to an "All you can eat" China Buffett. It was very delicious. It felt so good to go home and spend quality time with my family without worrying about limiting my time with them because I have to go work on a paper or study for an exam. Whew. Well, that concludes everything. I will keep you guys posted on my post college life. In the meantime, please look out for updates on my site. I have time on my hands now. Congrats to all the other 2010 graduates, whether it be from college or high school :)
