So here it is life in the first month of Jan for the new year. I have begun looking for some part time work, so that I can pay the rent and finish this school thing. In the meantime I am just taking care of myself and my health. just finished up a paper and yes school is going well I am glad for that at least. I really am. I am loving life and I am even though things financially are not perfect life is okay. I will not complain.
Life is what I am making of it and I am liking it. Got a new DVD player hier and that was good. Been learning new things as I hang with Byron and who knew. he is a very cool guy and I am learning alot. Mr. W and I are no longer together we are just seeing each other again and for that I'm grateful and happy. I am not sure that I really want to be or need to be in a relationship now. I don't know if I trust it. My health is well and I am grate VLs are low, other necessaries high and I am well. I should really get to Portland to see my new niece but I can't bring myself to ever go there. I hate it too much. If I never see that wretched city it will be only too soon.

I am currently reading Sins of the Fathers about the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade. Very good book if you get a chance read it. I don't suppose I have much to report really. Life is good and I am enjoying it. Tonight I am having Cupino. I can't wait. It's like a Portuguese sea food dish and i am all ready. I am actually starving right now. That will be a nice night. Well guys be blessed. Oh I can't believe I almost forgot but Egypt!!!! WOW I am so happy for the people of Egypt and I hope they achieve their aims. Freedom, dignity, and the end to a dictatorship. Mubarak it is time to go. It's incredibly interesting how people power has been recently shaking up the Magrheb as of late. Tunisia and now Egypt. Who knows it just goes to show you that the path for freedom when people really strive for it can never ever be denied. It will bloom even in the most choking of soils. Somethings you can't destroy with fear. I figure though what a way to bring in African Hisptry Month huh?

Speaking of which this our month. Well it is and yeah I know it short but hey get it together. Read a book. Yes read a book on our History. Don't go see a movie but read. We have a rich history at hand and all you have to do to access it is to read. So here are some good books on African History specifically to get you going:

1.We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda. An excellent book on the Rwandan Genocide.
2. Sins of the Fathers: The Atlantic Slave Traders 1441-1807. I am reading it now you have to read this.
3. Soldier Boy- This is a novel of the Biafrian War. Very good.
4. Dogucimi- A Novel on Dahomey which id really great.
5. Masseni-A great West African Novel.
6. Aman- A biography of a Somali Woman.
and they are so much more but hey I just figured I'd give you this for now. hey guys have a great weekend and be blessed.

Yeah when I was younger I could've been considered a geek. Always my eyes fixed upon a world none could see. Always seeking to escape from the mundane things of this life.

But a geek I think of as dreamer, someone one who delights in things outside of the ordinary.

And why not? Dreams were not meant for the sleeping times

For the ordinary world need not be such a boring place. There's always more than enough room for the things that make one smile.
