Falling... asleezzz... zzz... zzz

You know when you are so tired you go through the entire day just falling asleep everywhere? You can barely remember what happened about the course of the day because you were drifting off to sleep every five minutes.

Yep, it is one of those days.

But in good news, the TEDx Youth event went amazing. Will post video and pics later!

Now off to sleep! (Just kidding, still have over two hours of homework to do. 😦😧😩)

TEDxYouth Speaker and Nervous Nelly

Today is the big day. The TEDxYouth @TheBeltline  talk is today and I am one the speakers. I was up late memorizing and recording my speech and gathering all the needed materials for my presentation. I must have confidence and I must remember the order of the slides on my PowerPoint presentation and I must remember my black tights are hanging over the door to my closet or I will be running around like crazy looking for them.

I am really excited!  I hope you all are watching the live stream.

10 Most AMAZING Wonders of Nature
(Video by: Matthew Santoro.)

"Mother, I am taking you here... and here... and there, too.)

I was watching this cool video on Youtube about some of the most amazing wonders of the world, and I hatched a plan to visit these places with my mother. Before I was born, my father promised to take her to Europe as she wanted to go there during college but didn't after turning down a study abroad opportunity to marry him.

So, I told her that I would take her to these awesome sites, because they were awesome and I would love to see them with my mother - a person who has given up so much to keep me safe and growing.

The Cano Cristales River in Columbia is fascinating. I love colors and I would love to visit the river. Just seeing those beautiful colors up close would be awesome! Plus, if I were to go in the river, maybe I could turn into a rainbow?

This, of course, would mean that we would have to have an ample amount of money.

Say, mother, are you against going to clown college?


Christmas Gift - My Very Own Superheroine

My uncle Matthew created this for me as a Christmas gift. I'm going to frame it and hang it on the wall of my dorm room this fall. It's wonderful! I am officially a comic character.  A blackgirlnerd dream come true!

Hoop and all ...

Replaced my nose piercing as well. Big things hap'nen this year. 2015 for the win.

So... this happened.

Got a new haircut. It's a bob. I like it.
