I just don't know what to say...

I love you, Michael Jackson! The gift God gave you was and is still so awesome. I'm glad you're getting the rest you deserve.

Contributing Writers

You see this magazine cover? Behind the cover (and almost 70 pages past it) is something that I wrote. About 130 words (65 a piece) with my full name in the byline in the first and my initials in the second one. This week started to be pretty dismal, but when my mom called to tell me my very own copy had come in the mail, it got better. Now all I need is the check. The byline and knowing that I've contributed to such a great magazine (this issue is pretty hot, btw.) are enough.

The blurbs are under UPTOWN Flavor, Smokin' Hot, featuring the best barbecue spots in major cities. You know they couldn't forget about the BBQ Capital, Memphis, Tenn.!

So that's it. My latest contribution to journalism (no matter how small).

Check out Aliya's latest blog and discussion on the fate of journalism and writers-to-be.

By the way, I'm on Twitter @Alisha8151.

I just realized that everytime I decide to blog, I procrastinate because it seems like it takes so much out of me to write about what's going on. Therefore, I have decided to write super-short blogs about...whatever comes to mind. For example, right now I'm wondering why I came in to work today (other than being thankful that I have a job). I could so be chillaxin in my bed right now. Or how about I just left the country for my aunt's funeral yesterday. It was kinda sad, as it was unexpected, but I had fun being around family--no matter how awkward it was (Too much background to be shared).

My hair looks a mess (I blame Louisiana!). I look like I came straight outta the 60s. Eww. Saw the Unsung special on Minnie Riperton last night. It was pretty sad. I downloaded a few songs. I think Teedra Moses should portray her in a move or something. Check this one out: Le Fleur
