T-3 DAYS AND COUNTING! CONT...

Back once again!
Well I had two more topics to talk about but I didn't want to add them all to the same posting, so here goes!
Sophie Foundation
As some people know, Boris Kudjoe married his Soul Food: The Series cast mate Nicole Parker in 2005. Their first child is a girl named Sophie and their second child is a boy named Nicolas. They were on the cover of the Ebony June 2007 issue with Boris and they are the cutest kids ever! Nehoo, their daughter Sophie, has a condition called spinal bifida (which I'll put the wikipedia link that shows the pic of it at the end). She has had it since birth and it's a defect that affects the baby's spine. Nicole and Boris have started a foundation in their daughter's name called the Sophie Foundation, which gives them a chance to find a cure for their daughter as well as other children and adults living with this defect. Here is the wikipedia article that discusses it:

And here is the link to the foundation, which…

T-3 DAYS AND COUNTING!

Hello to everyone reading this post!
How are you today? Great! I am really enjoying myself today for some reason lol!
IDK why I keep having these long breaks between posts. Oh well...moving on!
A lot has transpired within the past two weeks. I'll keep it short and sweet, lol. I would like to touch on a few things, so here we go!
Caster Semenya
This story makes no sense to me. Caster is the South African female who won her GOLD medal in the Olympics in Berlin about a week or so ago. The doctors in her own country as well as in the US were questioning her gender in regards to their possibly being more male characteristics in her to run as a female. GIVE ME A BREAK!! The only reason y she may have an inkling of male tendencies is because she has muscle. That's due to the workout that she does in training for the Olympics. It's a shame that a Black woman can't even earn a medal (a GOLD on at that, the highest honor) without it being something wrong with her. Today&#…

I've Been Gone For a Min...

...but I'm back with the Jump Off!, LOL!
Hello to all readers! It has been a while, but I had something I wanted to share, as always! So... Here we go!
Employment
As I told everyone in my first "Official" post, I am not employed. I am not worried, however, because I know my Savior has something bigger and better for my life (sooner than later, those who know, know what I'm talking about!) I'm not going to preach to anyone since I don't know the extent of the readers' spiritual beliefs, but you know what I mean. :) Since my lack of work has begun, I have been reading the Classified section of the newspaper every Sunday, just to see if my luck would change. I have been reading some very interesting stats regarding employment and reading the advice given by industry professionals who have been there and know what to do. Here are some of the stats and advice I found and hopefully it can be of some help to others:
23% of people are unsatisfied with their job…

Reality...or Counterfeit?

Evening to all! Hope every one's having a good day/evening. Something came to me and I wanted to write about it so, here goes!
Reality Shows
As a avid television watcher (I should stop that habit or lessen it some), almost all the cable channels along with some local channels have sprung into the "reality TV" trend. I have to admit, there are some shows that have and continue to spark my interest ( the "Love" shows) but there are some topics that I think to myself " the station must have been desperate" or "who the hell cares about this?" For example, Megan from ROL2 has her show on VH1 (reality show central, lol) called "Megan Wants A Millionaire." Who cares? Lol. I want a Millionaire but I don't want to be on TV to get one. I am a private person and I couldn't see myself on TV for anything like that. Now if it was a competition to become the next big Radio star, I may consider it, lol! There is a new show starting t…

FINALLY!

I know I have been neglectful of my blog. I know I can't do this continuously if I want to start a following or just get enough people to read it. Sometimes, things do come up but other moments, I can be somewhat lazy. I will and have to do better. Since that's out of the way, here we go!!



Scott Peterson



Last week (when I wanted to actually write this blog, lol) I came across a news story that confused me a bit. I read the AOL stories and news links often and Scott Peterson's name came up. The article stated how his family are asking people to help them raise money for him to have another trial to win an appeal that can possibly show his innocence in the case and for him to get out sooner.



Now I may be wrong, but if I remember correctly, wasn't he the main and ONLY suspect that was charged with this murder? I saw the E! True Hollywood Story and I was very upset at the story and even more so the disturbing evidence that was found that lead to him. It wasn't too many th…

EVENING TO ALL READING THIS!

Hope everyone's day was an eventful one. No regrets?? Good. Let's chat about some current events, lol! I plan to be brief tonight, so here we go!

MJ

First off, I watched the ABC special last night called "The Jacksons After Michael." I caught the last 45 or so minutes, but I was glued to it the whole time. I was glad that some things came up that can clear the air, and other things that, I feel should have been kept personal. When Joe Jackson admitted Katherine whupping Michael more than he did, I was in shock. But then, I was confused because I didn't know who to believe. Whatever went on in that house all those years ago, we the fans only have his movies (Moon Walker, An American Dream, The Michael Jackson Story) to really account for it. It has been out for so long that it was Joe that did it, but now, this is revealed. If it was REALLY Katherine, why wasn't it exposed prior to the making or duration of An American Dream? Makes yo…

MUSIC TUESDAY

AFTERNOON TO ALL!

I hope everyone is doing well this afternoon. I am! I had somethings to talk about and things to address so here goes!

Every Tuesday is my favorite day of the week: NEW MUSIC! I am so excited that BOTH Joe and Chico Debarge's new Cd's are in stores!!! Joe's new CD is called "Signature" and Chico Debarge's "Addiction!" I honestly feel and believe that both of these artists should do a duet album or a double album together. That would be long overdue and very great for all the real fans out there. The song "No Guarantee" shows how much their voices compliment each other. They are also on tour together, so check them out when they come to town. Chico Debarge is on Twitter @chicodebarge. Joe, I'm not sure if he is, but I will look into it. It is good to see Joe staying constant in music, but I have to say: I think he fell into the trend of music with the "radio hit" phase going on right now for about two albums no…

First Official Post...(not really but oh well!)

Ms. V's BLOG!

Hello to all!!! If you are just tuning it (lol), my name is valencia aka MS.V. I have written some posts prior to this one but let's just start fresh and call this my FIRST official blog post.

A HELLUVA LOT has happened since I last wrote on here. I want to start out by saying that I want to make this a blog about a LOVE of mine: MUSIC as well as talk about my personal life and see how and what type of response I get from the reading audience. Music is what keeps me TRULY happy and without it, I don't know how I would function, lol! I want to discuss personal life because it's real, nothing made up. I know there are many people tha t can relate to what I go through on a daily basis, so I want to be able to vent about it somewhere where I know it can help another person in their struggle. WHERE TO START??? lol... Brief history...

I am a year old college grad student looking for employment (who isn't right now? lol). Got my BA in Mass Communications and wa…

SURGERY...

I JUST HAD A SOMEWHAT PAINFUL SURGERY TUESDAY! HAD MY WISDOM TEETH PULLED AND THE PAIN KICKED IN AFTER 4-5 HOURS. MY FACE WAS LIKE A CHIPMUNK AND I HAVE THREE MEDS TO TAKE! OVERALL IT DOD GO WELL. THE ONLY THING I DONT LIKE IS HAVING TO HAVE THE GAUZE IN MY MOUTH. OTHER THAN THAT, IM GOOD! PEACE AND LOVE!

New year!

I know I haven't posted in a long while...since I have been in school but let me catch up.

I graduated last May(2008) and have been looking for steady work since. I have a B.A. in Communications I have been laid off three times since graduation but am bouncing back from it! I am currently looking for work and want to break into the broadcast media industry. I am IN LOVE with MUSIC and the RADIO industry is my SECOND LOVE! My goal is to be a business owner, run my own things. I'm in graduate school at Walden University. It's distance learning and very convenient to me looking for work. I think that's all so I plan to post more frequently to vent or to just comment on things, voice opinions or just for fun!
