There Are Real People Behind The Headlines

Social media has come to redefine our interpersonal relationships today. Never has this been more apparent than what I’ve seen yesterday.

New Site Design – Featuring Rebel Mouse

I’ve been thinking about my blog (thinking about it….not posting on it though) a lot lately. My old theme was beautiful, robust…and wasn’t meeting my needs at all. The truth is, I am not a frequent blogger. I am not a business. I am simply a college graduate who is trying to market herself and…

Guilty Pleasures – I.

Thanks the the Blackfolk Community on LJ, I’ve come across some great animated gifs. You know, those annoying little pictures that move around on webpages? 😀 Well I happen to think that some of them are pretty cool. Unfortunately they don’t work everywhere (like on Facebook…the devil…). Here are some of my favorites: LOL, happy…

Rebirth

Well, this is a new beginning. I’ve opted to let my old website & blog slip away into oblivion. Too many things were put into public view; too little of it was constructive. I’ve made some drastic changes in my off-line life, so this new site is just a mirror of that. Stay tuned; I…
