DC program offically comin' to an end

Yeah so my DC internship TFAS program is finally coming to an end! On the one hand I'm soooo glad to be goin' home and sleepin' in my OWN bed lol, but on the other hand, it really is hard to say goodbye. Kind of awkward too actually, but after all it is goodbye. The people I had to go to work with every day were awesome and I couldn't have gotten a chance to know a better group of fun quirky people hhaha, but these people are cool on the real though. Just like every life experience, take what you can from it and move on, nothing's meant forever anyway ya know so just take life as it comes. Well this be the sign off, peace up...a-town down

So...why the name?...Right?

A couple of my friends laughed and some thought it was "cute" that i named my blog twizzlerz. Well the reason i named it that is b/c the candy Twizzlers is now one of my new obsessions. Every time i'm eatin one, i tell myself okay just one more, and i keep doin that til the whole bag's empty. I'm not talkin bout the small wrapped package from the movie theater, i'm talkin bout the 1 lb bags. the 4 lbs of twizzlers for 5 bucks type a deal at wal-mart. and so i figured my latest internet obsession would be my new blog b/c my 1st one was myspace then i got a facebook, and well u know the yeah, i present to you twizzlerz, and as for later blog entries... enjoy.

Fam Reunion

Yeah so this past weekend was my fam reunion on my maternal grandmother's side of the fam (that would be my mom's mom's fam if u didn't follow :) ) and it was in Baltimore and it was soooo much fun. I love seein all my relatives (well most of them anyways lol) and catch up and see how they're doin and what they're doin with their lives and everything. What I love most is seein all the generations come together from the great grandkids to the great grandparents/great-great aunts and uncles. Besides the activities bein awesome, it was just awesome seein everybody after bein caked up in this hole called an apartment bein forced to share it with five "strangers."

But what did disturb me was this hotel receptionist at the place we stayed, la quinta hotel, named Debbie. This woman has no regards for human life. in fact when u get a chance go to the costumer support page to report her. My cousins and i were outside playin manhunt (the older ones for old times sake) and we discover this body layin in the grass under a tree behind the property right beside the pool. (at this point we weren't sure if he were dead or alive) My sister and i go inside to tell debbie and she acted like we had just told her we were abducted by aliens. And then her manager, some old guy named Ed i think went outside to "check it out." This old dude walked right up to the passed out man (he was crazy) but the guy wasn't dead, my sis and i stood watchin long enough to see the man flinch then we walked back to the front of the building. Meanwhile two of my cousins who are "scary" were cryin b/c they thought they discovered a dead body. After my sis and i explained the guy wasn't dead, we all went back inside for a good old fashioned game of spades...

the next day was church and the service was short and sweet. that preacher got us in then got us out lol and it was nice...

i'm really glad i went to this too b/c i missed the last one...i think it's important for everybody to get connected to their people. u gotta know yo people, ya know

Ntruder Alert

Yeah so b4 my fam reunion this past weekend in bmore (which was awesome...i'll write about that tomorrow), last week seemed like hell. More like weekend b4 this past one and a couple days b4 that some of all hell began to break lose (in my life anyways.) I found out that (not that I purposefully categorize this way) my list of friends who have been raped is a "running one." Not only that, but a few days after I found out some, half of whatever you think of a man, guy beat up on my sister. >>>>Let it be known that it's good for both our sakes I was not in town at the time or had any way of gettin there or he'd be dead and i'd be servin up a life sentence by now<<<< So now when it comes to bein around men, I'm even more extra cautious than I was before. Even if I think that I know a man, I still don't trust him. After all that...I don't think my guard will ever be down...ever So I was tryin to pick a song to playback on my blog, and I chose Lupe's Ntruder Alert b/c that's just how I feel right now. My mood lately has even been how the notes and the melody of the song yeah Intruder Alert - Lupe Fiasco
