A New Year, A New World, & A New President Part 2.


A new world…

I believe we’re still in the early stages of the “Millennium.”  Every Thousand years, there’s a historical change. Through these historical changes, history remains to repeat itself in some shape or form. Only this time in history a powerful but deadly change is here technology. Technology is great, but it can and has caused a lot of failures and grief. We went from borrow and trade, paper and metal, to a plastic card. The new world is here and it is “Total Recall“.

 

The way human does things has changed since the Native American’s, Egyptians, and Cave Men. The world is now at the tip of our hands. If you do the research  you can see the thousands of years this earth has withheld us as a people. Similar to the movie “Avatar“… Our world is blindly pieces of that film. Fighting for humanity to stay alive and save planet earth. Sometimes I reflect on old family photos taken from the 1800’s. Often feeling like an Ancestor in a Time machine traveling through the years. Gazing through each frame of history like the movie “Life“.

 

With all the ups, downs, good, and bad technology can bring to the world. There are a lot of positive sides of technology. I like the fact that if I’m lost I can use a GPS. If you love too dance or love music you can always go to sites like YouTube. The negative side of technology is privacy issues, leaked information, and the lack of human communication. I don’t know if I like the new world as much as The Millennium and back. I rather write sometimes or spend a lot time outdoors. The world today is so busy nowadays… similar to the Movie “Total Recall“.

What about you?

What are some things you like about technology? and dislike about it?

A New Year, A New World, & A New President Part 1


Happy New Year’s Everyone!! Please drink responsibly.

On that note we all know New Years means a fresh start or a new start for most. We all make Financial, relationship and health changes before the New Year hits. As of last year I stopped with New Year resolutions. If I’m going to do something, it will be anytime of the year. It’s all about motivation, determination, and being Productive.



     1.Financial Goals : Are you working to build your credit or save for retirement?

       2. Relationship Goals : Do you want to build  better relationships?

challengepin

I’m definitely not a relationship expert, but I have relationship issues like the rest of you. It could be family, friends, or a significant other

There are some people who you’re  not on good terms with. you win some you lose some! If you really want to mend things with them, be the bigger person and reach out. If you’re in love cherish that love, don’t take it for granted.Be the person you want them to be to you.

The best relationship you can have is one with yourself… Renew, Grow, and learn.


          3. Health Goals: Have you ever decided on eating healthy or being fit?

I decided in January 2016 to start juicing, I juiced for a month and It was expensive, but well worth it. It can curve your appetite from processed food, GMO, and gluten etc.  If your smoker it will curve your urge to smoke. Besides juicing I decided to eat healthy that month and the experience was delightful.

I only did it for a month and I cannot eat some things that are actually bad anymore. There are a lot of different reviews on juicing. I say do your own research and study on it. Some herbs, vegetables, and fruits I never tried until juicing. When you juice you can always save the pulp and put it on salads. That seems to be a negative factor for some people on Juicing, wasteful leftovers. I also recommend trying a Dr. Sebi diet and a no meat diet. Here’s a list of links that  may be helpful for a great start into the New Years.

There’s many different ways to get motivated to be fit Coming from a skinny lazy girl, lol. I recommend starting with those 30 day challenges. You can find those on Pinterest and Google. Any part of your body you want to work on there is a challenge for it. If you a have workout partner go to the gym. Having a work out partner can be very beneficial find a friend or a significant other. Three great places to start are the gym, park, and home. Here are list of challenges you can try starting today!

I Dread 2 Differ


Chastity Jones applied to work at Catastrophe Management Solutions in 2010.Reading the Article on the magazine Essence’s  website. The company then hired her with one request…

http://www.essence.com/2016/09/20/judge-ban-dreadlocks-workplace-discrimination

Now if you took the time out to read the article above. You will see why Essence Magazine out of all journalism outlets  wrote an article on it. Essence magazine is geared towards African American woman whom a lot of us in the urban or suburban areas can relate too. There were different media outlets that covered this story in September, and justly her story should be heard.

We all know dreadlocks are a part of black culture and have been for years and a temple too a lot of the African decedents in the Islands south of the America’s. Dreadlocks have become a huge trend with the young black youth and outside of the African decent culture. With that being said we have to be honest a lot of things people of color created and symbolizes to be our culture. Has been stripped, talked about, attacked and dehumanized to create self-hate. 4 years back I wore an Afro to work and a white nurse said “Enjoli what’s wrong with your hair!?”  The ignorance of expression I had to bite my tongue. Being very much offended a co-worker said that’s a style in the black culture. Her being over 65 I’m sure she knew that…

My point of that is to say some whites can say things without saying things to try and get us to second guess our appearance. Meanwhile play lost or gives you the famous I didn’t mean anything by it line.You can always catch the sarcasm after years of experiencing racism. yet I guess being black were to stupid to recognize it. The same people who talked and talk about black’s big lips, dark skin, big butts, unique features, and creative style. Are now making it trendy for another race to use and make money off of it, we call that culture vulture .Black celebrities are doing the opposite of their culture and the whites the same. Now am I saying all? No, but it is trending coming from an era where it was okay to be black for a moment. Growing up in the 90’s we could Articulate our culture. Catastrophe Management Solutions does not consider it races they call it not meeting the code of conduct. What C.M.S. was doing was  coercing her to pick her career over her culture. Not only is that racism but modern day lynching of a woman and black culture…

Kylie Jenner’s Photo Shoot For Teen Vogue

How would corporations, government, and the entertainment industry like if people of color stripped them down about their hair, skin, and physical feature’s. Hollywood is doing a good job of pointing out the self-hate and self-gains while the judicial system strips us of it. Just the true reality of what I see going in my world. I love a variety of music I have friends that are different nationalities and met with a variety of people. I’ve lived in the country, suburbs, and “hood” and that gave me some opportunity and experience of meeting different classes of people. I want us as people of color to be able to embrace ourselves without being out cast, looked at as a threat, and dehumanized because the color of or skin. If our culture can be profited off of, why aren’t we allowed to be who we are? I’m not against other cultures or races being into black culture I just want us to be allowed to be us.

African culture has always had creative style and been versatile throughout history. If we can’t be us we should stop investing or time and money into these corporations. I think as soon as we unlearn materialism, hate, and certain teachings. We can go back to the black Wall Street, and support the communities that are looked down on and forgot about. Emanate fairness in the black culture and communities; one way to be fair is to make one feel equal.  Stand your ground, we’re always told we should talk in such a manner, dress in such a manner, look, and “act”  “PROFESSIONAL”  to people of color that is acting and being something were not which is European. Majority of the world is based on European rules and their Definitions of conduct.

Does that make one less professional or qualified Based on their hair?

We all know not all employers are bias on dreads, but there is also a thing called E.E.O.C. In larger cities there’s a lot of warehouse, call center, government, city, local jobs  that don’t require such conduct.
