this weekend was super busy, super great
Friday I met up with a group of Divastating women for sisterhood week, for lunch, I love my DST. While there i was reminded of how much we can accomplish when we work toward the same goals, rid ourselves of petty discourse, and truly appreciate the awesomeness that is woman.
Saturday i went to Tulsa, for a concert, it was soo cool watching my brother minister to people. I also got to catch up with friends i hadn't seen in over 10years. Began building some great relationships, and learned a lot about

Day 1 of...

get it right get it tight. Today was my first day with my trainer Gene. I wasn't feeling well, and had a busy event, and my smart behind decided to wear heels today?! So my feet were already in so much pain. To top it off i had an event today that ran longer than what i expected, so i power walked home, with my aching feet, changed clothes, then dang near ran to my session, so i was already tired. Fast forward to after 45 gut busting minutes, where i thought i would hurl any second. i'm trying to walk home, that's right trying, becuase i have no clue what happened to my legs, i just know that it hurts to think about walking. 
My previous 7 minute walk, turned into a 15 min crawl home. when i got to the bottom of the stairs i just sighed...it was pathetic.  i finally made it home, got straigt in the shower rolled into the bed, then called my mom who LOL'd at me the entire time.
here is my video...

Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs

( i love that book) i think that's the best way to describe the week thus far. A student passed away on Monday, Tuesday 15 tornados touched down in my city, and surrounding areas; Wednesday a staff member that was doing great things for Black studentswas fired, and today we'll see what's in store.

Yesterday was interesting becasue i was reminded of the call on my life. my life's work is based around international  educational policy. i LOVE learning about other cultures, and while getting my hair braided i was overwhelmed with contentment, and i did nothing. i sat in a chair for 7 hours, and just took in everything and one around me. There were women of every hue, speaking 3 different languages (swahili, french, & english), and i felt like this is how a community is supposed to feel. i can't wait to see where my life goes, and how i will be impacted by the world, and hopefully impact those i'm around. i get soooo excited thinking of the places my passion will take me.

alot has happened, and i'm grateful for it all.
