i love documentary films. this was a good one on the color complex, and how its not just a black issue, the way i thought it was. Obviously this is an issue that effects all people of color

Rihanna ft. Drake "Whats My Name"

Ciara "Gimme Dat"

Just Writting

i often wonder, what i am good at. like really, really good at. and not just in my opinion good at it. i mean i want to find a habit or a skill that i can share with other people for thier benefit. like artists have the arts, what do us regular people have. i know i love reading, and writting, but honestly i dont feel i am good at writting. i enjoy it like hell though. so i keep my deepest pieces to myself. its odd though, because those deep, dark peices are probably the ones that will make me a millionair. but im too afraid to share. everyone in my life would be so hurt by the things i wrote and said that i would be rich with noone to spend it on. lol. But i sort of cant wait for 2011. its going to be an awesome year. i am looking forward to working super hard and stacking my money up. i went on a interview a couple weeks ago for a second job that i am pretty sure i also looking farwrd to going to school...AGAIN...i KNOW. but this year imma stick with it. i have put myself on a 5 year plan. for having a degree, moving into a house, and what not

BOOK: Oh God, Oh God, Oh God! youth adults speak out about sexuality and christian spirituality by Heather Godsey and Lara Blackwood Pickrel

i didnt really enjoy this book like i have enjoyed some of the others. It was pretty much a compilation of the different experiences young people have had as christians in the church with sex. from chasity rings, to homosexuality and infertility, its all discussed here. iv personally read better written books on the subjects.

BOOK: Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America by Ayana D. Byrd & Lori L. Tharps

This was a good book and informative but read slow. I dont know why but it tokk me like 2 or 3 weeks to read it. I kept sitting it down and picking it up. It gave a cool history of African American hair and why sometimes it can be such a painful subject. Iv noticed that there are no two more freguently discussed, or written about physical attributes in African American culture then skin complexion and hair texture. there are soo many books, articles and intimate life stories that center around skin complexion and hair texture in the black community. i hope that one day as a race we will get to a point where we can accept ourself for what we are...what god created us to be.
