now that i have finally broken free of the bondage that was junior year, i will be able to dedicate more time to keeping the world updated on my summer escapades. i will be starting my internship with the governor on june 1st and will be moving to the boston in a week. i have already reached out to a couple of interesting people and have begun the post collegiate job hunt. this law school thing is probably going to be a bust, but i will keep it on the back burner. if all else fails, i will have my useless knowledge of caribbean economic history to fall back on.

in any case, i am sure that things will be quite interesting.

oh yes. i almost forgot to alert the world wide web of my latest accomplishment. after a long and tiresome journey, full of turbulent setbacks and numerous let downs. after two years of waiting and a lifetime of hoping. after the tears, the long nights and seemingly endless anxiety…im proud to tell the world, I GOT MY PEARLS!

skee-wee my sorors! skee-wee!

while there have been a fair amount of hiccups, this semester has been one of the most fulfilling on my college experience. academically, i have done adequately. nothing to write home about, but good enough to keep me satisfied for the time being. i secured an internship with the governor of massachusetts, deval patrick, which i am extremely excited about. i will be able to see the inner workings of the massachusetts legislative system from the public sector, something i am familiar with but have yet to witness. i have never spent any real time in boston, and cannot wait to do some exploring. this will be a great experience, but will more importantly allow me to be close to my love for the entire summer. we have a number of outings planned, but if i know anything, we’ll spend most of our time watching the history channel and making roast beef sandwiches, which sounds perfect if you ask me.

in the coming days i will be coming to another turning point, one of which i will expand upon in further detail at a later date.

until then, i will be daydreaming about the summer love on the horizon, and trying not to flunk my finals.

“well aren’t you sharp as a tack. you some type of lawyer or somethin? or somebody important or somethin?”

so , i have finally come to the conclusion that i will not be able to save the world on good intentions alone. thus, i am kinda sorta almost sure that  law school is going to the next step. i am going to get the ball rolling this summer, take the test in the fall, and then once more depending on how badly i bomb it the first time.

luckily, i have no desire to practice law. however, i do believe that one aspiring to have a political career should at least have a good understanding of how to finagle the system.

welp, here goes nothing.

use your vote to make camp summer stars this month’s recipient of the pepsi refresh $250K grant.

“Imagine that you’re 13 years old.  You’ve haven’t left the house all summer. You’re in your apartment watching TV, because the streets aren’t safe.  You have a passion for performing, but few opportunities to succeed. Now imagine arriving at Summer Stars Camp for the Performing Arts.  From the moment you step off the bus to the moment you leave, you’re on stage, rehearsing and performing–surrounded by nature, by a safe environment, and by kids just like you.  Kids who dare to dream”

the camp is a haven for creativity and a home for young minds and spirits to develop with courageous passion. i have witnessed the love that pours from this organization and believe that they deserve our continued support and appreciation.

in-between facebook stalking and blog surfing, please vote once a day, and make a dream come true.

even though i still believe that erykah badu was manufactured by universal records to appeal to the neo-soul fad of the late 90’s, i can still appreciate her music and the art she produces.

she was a factor in a business plan that worked, and i can’t knock it.

good single. overly-hyped video. excellent concept. enjoy.
