The most Convenient Things About Life is Good for your Health!!

The Most Convenient Things about Life

rihanna Pictures, Images and Photos

-Music Videos such as Rude Boy (see picture above), it makes me excercise harder and faster. It’s a powerful song, especially this
song but music is powerful in general.

-Having a Job Across the Street from Where you live

-Graduating College early

-Starting hobbies early like ballet, tap dance, gymnastics,
professional roller skating..I wish I would have started all
these early…Now I do none of them.

-Having a short labor

-Having a hairdresser for a mom

-Getting hired for a job on the spot

-Learning from someone else’s mistake to avoid yours

-Having a 4.0 gpa

-Having a house with a sidedoor and a front door, and
even a back door…..I used to live in a duplex
with only one door. Me and mom thought this was a
fire hazard. Now we got a sidedoor and front door.
We have a mail slot, garage, fencing, windows in bathrooms,
We have the sliding doors, sliding windows, well sealed
toilet..God is great!

-Being a nutritionist

-Long hair instead of short hair because you can style it
with more versatility. I will find that blog but someone said
that they only wash and condition their hair once a month
and let it stay it braids and their hair grew to their waist.

-Attending college because mom gets paid for me to go
to college.

-Staying off campus, because it’s too much work living in a
dorm

-Doing your own hair, it’s costly to have others do it.
THe easiest hair to do is long hair.

-Splurge days, having 2 days where you can eat like
crazy and not feel guilty about it. It works for me.
Does it work for others? It works for me because
I excercise (boxing) for an hour and sometimes
a little over. I eat light through the week though.
I eat multiple fruits then I eat a regular meal.
This is to maintain it. WHen I was losing weight
I was eating meatloaf and a salad and oh my
goodness, the taste both blend together in
harmony.

-Knowing foreign languages because you get hired
quicker and if someone is talking in secret by
using a non English language you can catch
what they are saying..

-Being an adult, because you understand life better.
When you are a kid, you walk the world confused.

-Having a job with benefits. Where did they go?
Seriously!!

-Attending college in the city you live in…

-Knowing who you deal with right away, if you
had a superpower to scan someone’s personality
and actions to see how they would respond
to different situations….But then God is
always great at that, great at everything!

-Getting a new hairstyle every week. Then people
wonder what they will see next. I make the greatest
effort to do it.

-You’ve already graduated. I have a blessed cousin
who graduate college. I only graduated high school
which is a blessing as well…but graduating college
is the ultimate.

-You can balance college and a social life without
slipping up.

-You are a math genius…it seems like once math
is tackled, what else is hard in school?

-Timers, so if you forget to do something that bell
will remind you.

– Hats/scarves so if your hair is not exactly like you
want it, you can design it with those. I’ve done it
at times, but most of the time I’m showing off my
hair. I feel like it’s less baggage when it’s all me.

-Having a full ride scholarship

-Being Black, it’s the most beautiful race, more
youthful. I am so proud to be.

-Save the best for last, a Life with GOD in it…

If you haven’t Heard of the Black Matrix, discover how it is the mass manipulation of Black people because of secret white racist!!!

dg1 Pictures, Images and Photos

Have you not heard of the Willie letter?
How it is use to put black people against
each other men vs women, light vs. brown ?
If not, you need to catch up. For those
who know, something similar is still going on.
It’s been going on for the longest time.

It’s important to understand the
sick mind we are dealing with. So in order
to understand lunatics, we must outsmart
them, go around them, undo
their sick sad work!

When we watch the news, read the
newspaper or even listen to the radio
they are trying to present their racist
notions about us black people. It’s all
in fun and jealousy!The more they
worry about us, that just goes to
show you how brilliant we are!

I see the black race as the most
charismatic, beautiful, sexy, intelligent,
great warm personality,best physical
features, best cooking, best style,
best models, best genes, youngest
looking, the most class, just so
doggone good at everything!

Yet, the government wants to make sure
they are always in control. This is
why they try to separate us black people.
Back in the day it was segregation amongs
white and black.

Now it’s kinda like they want us to segregate
amongst ourselves. Even
though that has been going on in the past,
it is really the defining moment
now. THey want you to respect
them, whites! Yet, not we, the
people, in our own race!

What determines curly or straight hair? This I’ve always wondered!!

MAC MakeUp

I have two types of hair. I have fine hair in the back and
really think and kinky hair at the top. My dad brings in the
fine hair and mom brings in the kinky hair.

So recently I’ve wondered what determines curly
hair or straight hair. An Australian group of scientists found
that trichohyalin tells whether your hair is straight or curly.

So for those who leave dna at a crime scene, they
will know their hair type.

Technology is so superb, they can even tell a baby’s
hair type before they are even before.

And digg this, they can possibly develop medications
that change hair texture without the use of perms
of straighteners. That sounds really interesting
but then if I ever see a medicine that changes
hair textures I would seriously investigate it
for health reasons. But anyways, I’m fine
with the hair texture God gave me.

I would hope this work for other people’s sake without
any side effects. I would hope this would be healthier.

I mean, who else wonders what determines straight and
curly hair? I know I’m not the only one…

You don’t have to be the broke college student, you can be the money making college student!

Money!

You ready for this money? lol Get some!
It takes a skill or effort to make money. Sometimes
resources of how to make money are right over
your head.

But for now, Go ahead, imagine yourself in front of a pile of money.
The goal is to get as much you can in a timed session.
How much do you think you can get in 5 minutes?Now that
that's over.....

Well fellow readers, I was looking online for some ways
to make money on college campus.

1. You could sell your plasma to make money. When I went to donate blood plasma, I almost
fainted because I did not each much. So do eat a full breakfast. My left
arm ofcourse is hard to poke with the needle. I always like to watch the needle
go into my arm. There is no looking away from me.

2. Participate in a Research Study. THere are colleges
that actually pay you for doing a research study. THe studies
come in various shapes and forms. Some studies will require
you to fill out surveys. Others will ask you to try out product
or treatment.

3. Get a job passing out fliers. They may ask you to put
the fliers on apartment doors or put them on car windshields.

4.Another option is to Tutor. Be an official tutor for your
college. I had heard that the college paid the music theory
tutor to tutor students.

5. Photography can pull the money in. If you are good at taking
pcitures, students at the college may need wedding pictures or
graduation pictures.

6. Sell stuff you don't need. You can sell these products/items
on ebay or craigslist. Have your own garage sale if your up for it.
There are times where free section on Craiglist and sell them
at a decent profit.

7. Another option is to get a part time job on campus. They can
be easy campus reserve jobs just for students. They build around
your schedule because they work with you well. They don't
want you slipping up.

8. You could sell your sporting event tickets. IF you want
to sell this tickets to non college students for a college
with a big sports program.

9. Blogging your way to money. THis site talks about how sites
give you money for your blog: http://mashable.com/2009/05/13/blogs-amazon-kindle/I found this site myself.

10. Recycling can roll in the green paper. Go ahead and clean
your campus up. Get the bottles and the cans together into an
assortment.

11. Becoming a TA can lead you to getting money. Departments and
professors will pay students for this role of being a TA. CHeck with
your major's department for listings.

12. Get involved in research. Some professors offer the opportunity
to do paid research assistanceships to fortunate undegrad students.
Oh, and it's like taking out two birds with one stone. It gets you
paid cash and is a great asset to have on your resume.

13. You can sell your class notes. I can honestly say I would have never
thought of this one. People may be out of town and need someone
to take notes for them. Or someone may have an event to tend to,
or activity so you can get money from that.

14. Sell candy/pop to your classmates. Well if you get any
deals on your candy pop, I can see this as making a profit
if you sell it for money. But I was thinking that the price
would have to be really low when you buy to get a big
price back. I don't know, ya'll think on that one.

Anyways, I'm tired of the term broke college student. So let's make
money on college. They are going to have to change it to the
resourceful college student. On the other hand they could call
it the money flow college student. Oh, since you have the ideas
to get paid, go out and do some, all of them and be blessed!

I got my ideas from the person
who wrote this site:

Praise Dance at Bethel Gospel Assembly Church in New YOrk, a spot to check out when you are in New York!

Pressure Point Praise Dancers

(The following picture is not a picture of the praise dancers at Bethel Gospel Assembly)

BEthel Gospel Assembly, A Pentecostal Church in Harlem showing off their praise dance

There’s nothing more glorious than dancing for the Lord. It looks
like it would be very rewarding on the inside. The church I attend
is Greater Works Deliverance Ministries in Romulus Michigan.

They have praise dancers. We can all see the spirit behind the dancing. You just feel it, like you feel a strong that evokes emotion. One of the most emotional Gospel songsis Thank you Lord. How would someone praise dance to that?There’s a lot of great songs to praise dance to.

But I would just like to turn your attention to this Black church
in New York. The atmosphere they set up:
Teenage ballerinas and midraff baring hip hoppers gather together
in the halls of the New Dance Group building in Midtown Manhattan.
In this group you will see twenty five women bowed on their knews
in circle position, eyes closed, foreheads to the floor.

Wendy Heagy, the founder of Raise Him Up Praise Dance School and Ministry leads the group in prayer. The class is mostly our Black people from ages 20 to mid 60s, dressed up in warm up clothes and have scriptures written on the backs of their T-shirts.We all know they had to go in and out with style.

Ms. Heagy starts by leading with a secular warm up of head rolls with feet
in parallel second position. The upbeat jazz version of the Lord’s Prayer
accompanies their dance ministry on the stereo. Ms. Heagy is both
soothing and demanding as a teacher. Her requests are to pull in your
stomach and squeeze your butt.

Praise dance is deep, and a form of worshippng God that seeks to articulate the word and spirit of God by using the body. Even in biblical times,dancing was embraced during festivals and worships. Unfortunately,
it was forced out of the Christian church at the Reformation era
and has been welcomed back in the 20 of so past years. So that’s a
little history for you.

Fact: In recent years, praise dance has become a very popular part
of church services across the country, especially among America’s
growing Pentecostal movement and has been taken to New York too.
Note:1 in 10 people in New York is pentecostal anyways.

A lot of praise dance ministries include American sign language
to sign out scripture during a song.

In New York, many many churches have added praise movement
ministries to their worship services such as the Greater Allen A.M.E
Cathedral in Jamaica QUeens.It is a powerful dance ministry with over
400 dancers, along with other churches in or close to the city like
Mount Calvary Holy Church on State Island, City Gate International
Church in East Harlem, Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport on Long
Island and Bibleway Healing Assembly in upstate Henrietta. So…
if you visiting the New York area, something to think about.

Ms.Heady’s Choreography is blend of modern, African and jazz movement
that comes through prayer.

THe church dances to the song “He’s Been Faithful” by the Christiansinger Vicki Yohe to represent blessing, honor, glory, power,
wisdom, and dominion. At the cue of blessing,both hands start at the mouth and the arms then fan out in
a sun shape. At the cue of power, arms areraised equal distance apart with fists clenched. For wisdom, fingers touch the temple and come to
meet in the center.

So when people praise dance it’s a representation of a theme.
It can be many themes. What do you interpret from praise
dancing?

Would you ever praise dance? I wish I could praise dance. I know I could with practice. Praise dance to me
is like a spirit and an attitude. What do you get from it?

The facial expressions of the people in my church are so
intense. It’s like they are one with God in the dance.Praise dance is body and spirit. The body feels the spirit in the praise dance. You could feel like your
jogging through time through a spiritual journey.

I remember even imitating some moves of praisedance I saw in videos and got a good feel of it.I was thinking wow, it’s very impressive and
magnificent.

The rolled up twists vs. the scarf look!

rolled twists

Basically for the first hairstyle ,all I did was twist my hair, pin it up for an updo. Then I took rollers and rolled the twists forward.

For the scarf look I just tied it around the edges neatly and evenly. Then I made it into a bow.

Brown scarf look
