Rant

Often times I have to put on an act to make others comfortable. And I will say it isn't fun. I really feel like people do not think before they speak. Statements that start:
A) The next time you feel depressed... DON'T...
B)  You really ought to...
C) You better...
D) Why don't You...
E) Keep that to yourself because people don't like when you.....
Yes those statements are insensitive.

OMG folks!!! I am human! I'm not your robot. I don't like being depressed. I don't like being used. I don't like having to worry about where my next mortgage payment is coming from. I don't like having to repeat myself over and over again because individuals choose to not listen. Why can't others for once in a while not impose unsolicited advice to me? Why can't folks understand that people do get depressed not to make them uncomfortable? Why can't people just respect my wishes & listen, not just talk. I do not enjoy having to defend myself because an individual chooses to give me unsolicited advice. Why can't people be on time when we agree on a time for...ANYTHING . My time is important too.

Respect my time & boundaries please. Thank you.
Rant over.

Going to Spellman

So it's that time again for me. My now 30th reunion at my alma mater Cardinal Spellman.  To avoid tapping into household funds, I want to creatively raise the capital through fundraising through art. The goal is to raise the money for the  trip. 






This event is probably the most important event to me than any other.




 There will be four options. 
It will include your shipping cost in the price.

Meeting Cory


This is was definitely worth waiting for my food. It's not about politics for me. This man sincerely cares about his City Of Newark and his state of NJ. 

There aren't too many individuals who aren't close friends or family that I will go out of my way to see. Let alone in politics. In fact after Prince's death, the list got much smaller. But this gentleman is a class act. He doesn't serve my city or my state. But he visiting my little neighborhood in Northwood, it was worth having breakfast with a crowd of people just to meet him in person.

Cory Booker is a class act.
