Funny how vernacular can sound funny...
Repeat the title to my blog
"Where I been at?"
Doesn't it just make you laugh?
Well it made me laugh and that's all that matters.
So how has my blog family been doing?
Have y'all given up on me and neglected coming to check up on me b/c I have not posted in weeks?
It's all good.
I apologize for being ghost.
Those of you that really cared emailed me and/or communicated with me through AIM so y'all knew I was fine.
To the others, I missed y'all too.
So where have I been at?
Well I am back at school now as I have been since the 23rd and the transition back into school mode after winter break is always hard, because the resistance is still there.
The resistance to having to wake up early again.
The resistance to having to go to class.
The resistance to having to stay focused during lectures.
The resistance to having to read long dense textbooks.
Y'all know me, I do what I have to do when I have to do it, but sometimes that means stepping off blogger for a few.
I get so caught up in checking up on everyone every hour of everyday that I sometimes neglect the important things that need to be done.
So I've been handling my business you know.
I was nominated for an award on my campus, the Rainville Award.
This is what the university's website has to say about the awards....
"For eighteen years the Office of Student Involvement/Memorial Union and Student Life have held an annual celebration to honor students who are successful in various leadership roles while maintaining a good academic record.
The purpose is to recognize, encourage, and celebrate student leadership in the campus community. The award is named in memory of A. Robert Rainville, students' friend and mentor, Vice President for Student Affairs 1980-86.
These awards are among the most prestigious at the University of Rhode Island. Students, staff or faculty are welcome to nominate students and teams for the awards. Nominees will be invited to complete an information application.
Nominees are then reviewed by a selection committee and finalists are.
I'm very excited about this!
I celebrated my 8 months with my Coco Puff yesterday (Feb 5). Too bad we didn't get to spend it together b/c he's back home in NY, but we are both blessed to have eachother for all this time until death do us part.
MY BIRTHDAY IS COMING....
Princess is getting old
I will be 21.
I've invited about 15 of my good friends to come out and celebrate my birthday with me on the 4th at an Indian restaurant out here in Rhode Island. The restaurant is called the Indian Club.
If you haven't tried Indian food please do---NOW!!
My girls and I went to the Indian Club 2 Fridays ago and it was phenomenal.
The food was scrumptious.
The owner and I met at my job at the mall during my Christmas break and after talking about the Lord and finding out she too was a Baptist (I never knew there were Indian Baptists) she gave me her Restaurants card and told me I had to come by some day and she'd hook it up.
So we did and I loved it.
The owner, Neela brought us out a complimentary beverage.
Mango, yogurt and ROSE water.
My goodness--they were divine.
So I've decided to have my birthday dinner there so my friends can have the pleasure of tasting the luxurious Indian dishes they serve.
Then on Sunday the 5th into my birthday, the 6th, My Coco Puff and I will spend the day/night at a hotel and just enjoy eachothers company. We will probably go to Foxwoods since he's never been there and it's not too far from my school. They have a jacuzzi and that's what I want.
I haven't seen him since early January and I won't get to him until then so that will the best part of my birthday.
Do you all remember what you did for your 21st birthday?
What did you do?
Where did you go?
Who'd you spend it with?
What did you get?
