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 I believe you can also make donations to it as well:


Here is Boris Kudjoe's official website as well:


Please let me know if the links work or not.

This is a great cause and it goes to show that celebrities are just as human as us "regular" folk. I don't even see them as celebrities honestly because they act and seem so down to earth and humble. This also shows that in order to be a success or to be good at something, you have to start somewhere. Helping others should be a mindset that everyone should have but doesn't because they don't think about it right away or at all. This couple have it in mind that they want to help and give others hope that you can be cured from this defect. Most importantly, they want to give back, which is always amazing!

I had something else to write pertaining to Parental Control (self explanatory), but I forgot the main focus on that. So I'll move on.

The title of this post mean alot is going to take place in the next three days. I 'm going to PA for graduate school and I can't wait! This move and decision is the BEST thing I could have ever done in my life at this moment. So many more opportunities to see things, experience life on my own, being INDEPENDENT and focused on my goal: my degree, becoming more motivated and job placement. After graduating, I have a better chance to find a job than the luck or lack there of where I am now. When I mean job, I mean a job that I ENJOY, not one that I am forced to work in or a place where I don't like it at all. At the time I graduate, things should pick up and I don't foresee any major problems finding a good paying job worth my experience and knowledge. No more excuses! I don't need to make anymore reasons for myself to not succeed. Time waits for no one!

Well, hope you enjoyed this post as well. Feel free to comment and write how you honestly feel. Thanks for reading, as always, and peace and love!
