Welcome to the New Millenium

You heard it here first, folks. I finally stepped into 2008 and got a Blackberry. A Blackberry Pearl, to be exact. A RED one. Me likey! I'm so not a tech junkie. It was maybe 2004 before I got a flip phone (when they were the new hotness in 2002). To top that off, I only upgraded to the FREE phones when allowed. Don't knock it till you try it. Most of them have been pretty good. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that internet access on the phone is a must for me. With writing projects (kinda scarce these days), it sucks when I have to wait until I get home or to work to check my email. I need this phone!

So, I received my first check as proof of my raise and it's not too bad! Thank God for his blessings. I try to practice what I preach, so the only expense upgrade I made was the phone. I added to my 401k and will send savings direct deposit to my new ING Orange Account. Email me if you need referral links. There's an extra $25 in it for you!

I'm trying to get rid of this last bit of credit card debt I have by the end of the year. I've been saving for NYC and hopefully another trip to the Dominican Republic that I totally forgot about the ultimate goal....buying a house! Yeah, it needs to be done. I'm trying to access if I really want the responsibility or do I think I'll be over living in an apartment for more than two years. When lease renewal time came, I started thinking hard. Granted, my rent didn't increase (thank God!), there's always a sense of urgency and decisiveness. Anyway, I'm not really rushing. In the meantime, I'm looking for some first-time homeowner programs.

There's just one thing though. Moving has really been on my mind. But to where? Doesn't make much sense to purchase a home and get up and move. But I can't move unless I figure out what I want to do and apply for jobs. Hmm, I'm got work to do, don't you think. Anywhoo, I'm just praying that God directs my path. I love my job. I'm coming into my own here, but I can't look for a job just like this in another city. Maybe it was made for me, hence me staying here for awhile.

Hell, I don't know.

My best friend had her baby last night! Hello, little Justyn! Tee Tee loves ya already.

Why did I stay up later than usual watching Alexyss Tylor videos?! She is as real as real can get. She still talks about sexual things, but she's on point regarding these relationships (or the lack thereof). Check her out!

Not Safe for Work! And disregard her old-ass computer! lol Tell 'em Alexyss!

Um, I think that's it for now.
