RMU African American Leadership Experience

This morning, I met my friend Eric at Yorktown. We were helping out with the African American Leadership Experience Conference. Eric is my friend from my Higher Education management program. I wanted him to attend because I think that he could meet some influential people at this conference and I think that he is a great role model and very professional.

At one point, I met one of the higher ups at CCAC and I told him about how I started at CCAC and how I try to correct that negative stigma around Community Colleges. He said, he would like to bring me along with him. I laughed.

I was able to sit down and talk to the Director of Student Life about my interests in education and what I would like to write about, and etc. It was a great experience.  I even got to take some professor pictures. Well they are as good as they get for now.

Sunday

This morning, I started my Leadership paper and created an outline and I was glad I got it started. Next weekend was going to be too crazy. Other than being a little tired from last night. I hung out and got caught up on my shows.

That evening, Andrew’s parents came by and dropped off my birthday gift, a coach iwatch 3 band. I have been eyeing this band up for so long now. I need to invest in some leather cleaner. I love the classic C’s it is symbolic of coach. ­čÖé

Halloween 2018

This morning, I helped out at the RMU football game. It was student government day, so every student, who swiped their freedom card and received a ticket, could vote for their organization of their choice. The organization with the most votes would win $500. The band, who belongs to the KKY organization, didn’t swipe in, but wanted to vote for their organization. The student worker that I work with, Jordan, she is a member of Sigma Kappa and wanted her organization to win. I actually am not sure, who won, but KKY did ┬áget the most votes, but not sure if they count since the band didn’t swipe in.

After I got home from the football game, I went home and grabbed my acrylic dip powder set, and went to my parents. I did my mom’s nails. Then I went home to do some homework, until it was time to go to Leanne and Dan’s. I couldn’t wait to get all dressed up.

After I got my witch costume on, I put my make up on, and ended up dropping the eye lash glue cap down the drain. Drew had to take off the p-trap and get the cap out. I was a little off that night. I was starting to get a headache as well. I was a little hormonal, but I just had a day of being on the go and no time to catch up.

When we arrived, to Leanne and Dan’s, we knocked but then walked into the house. No one was in the living room. We walked inside the living room and I yelled, “Hello?”┬áMaci came down the stairs dressed as a mermaid. She gave me a big hug she looked so cute.

I am not around enough. It breaks my heart a little. I don’t live close to her anymore, so I don’t get to see her as often as before. Leanne hangs out with other moms, who have children that are friends with Maci. One of the mom’s was there and Maci was playing more with her and not really siting with me, and being around me like she used to. I will always be her Daniel, but she is growing up now.

I walked over to the stairs and shouted up to Leanne and said Happy Halloween! She said, “Hey broad.” she was up getting ready. Drew went down to see Dan and the rest of the boys. I went upstairs to say hi to Leanne before making my way down to the basement. Leanne was still getting ready with her friend. Eventually, I made my way down to the basement to join Drew and the guys. At one point, Nikki and Paul came in and Paul was dressed up as the mad hater and Nikki was dressed up as Alice and Wonderland. It was good to see them. I haven’t seen them in a while.

Andrew and I didn’t stay long. We left around 10:30pm. I was tired from having an early day that day. I needed to go home and go to bed. I had some homework to do tomorrow. Halloween was different this year

Dinner with In-Laws

This evening, we went to the Cafe in Aliquippa. We were going to meet Drew’s parents there. We haven’t been there in forever. I stuck to my keto diet had a hamburger with no bun and a side of coleslaw. I had a couple drinks with my mother-in-law, crown and soda waters.

At dinner, we talked about all that has been happening in our lives and in their lives. We hadn’t been out to eat together in a long time. She asked about my diet and I told her it is going so well. I really feel better eating this way. She was glad to hear it. We talked about my birthday plants, and dinner at my parents, as well as their vacation to Cape Cod. I am glad I got to see them.

When Drew and I got home, I had another crown and soda, then it was off to bed for this girl.

Paper Writing

After pumpkin picking, and shopping around. We went home  and I sat down to write my second paper for class. We had to pick a policy and or a court case, and describe the importance to Higher Education, as well as who was excluded, and who did the policy help or hinder. I chose to write about the Grove City vs. Bell case.

I am not one for reading legal jargon. It is pretty dry stuff. I think I got the gist of the case. Writing always came easy to me, once I sit down and start it, but it’s just getting to the point where I am sitting down and actually writing it.

So I poured myself a glass of wine and I think it worked. I was able to finish paper by the end of the weekend!

Birthday Dinner at My Parents

This morning we had a chiropractor appointment. I was finally going to get my ankle adjusted. He asked why I didn’t come to the office when my accident happened and I said because it happened in the afternoon on a Tuesday and you weren’t in. I am sure he would have made a special visit to the office to adjust me, if he had to. He is a family friend.

After I was adjusted my ankle was a bit sore and tender. It didn’t feel good. I knew that was going to be the case. After the Chiropractor, we went home and I did some homework until it was time to go to my parents for dinner.

When we arrived, it was a little after 4pm. I was tied up. I was so happy to see my parents my dogs. I helped my mom a little in the kitchen, while Drew and my dad watched football in the living room.

For dinner, we ate beef tenderloin and asparagus. For desert, there wasn’t a birthday cake because I am keto. However, they used a candle to sing Happy Birthday to me. My birthday gift from my parents was a rose gold iPad Pro. I love it! I can’t wait to get a case for it. My parents and my husband spoil me.

We had a great time at dinner and I loved seeing my dogs!

Venom Review

When we arrived at the theater, they had Venom cups and popcorn buckets. I was so excited for this movie. Typically, I don’t get excited about superhero movies, unless it is Superman, then I get excited. I will be excited to see Aquaman as well. When the movie started, Eddie seemed like a laid back and low key guy. Michelle Williams is definitely older. She played his fiance.

At one point, there is something unethical going on in a laboratory, and Eddie went behind his fiance’s back to expose it. She breaks up with him, ends their engagement and dates someone else. Eddie is determined to expose the lab and the owner of the lab, but ends up contracting venom.

Venom makes Eddie cooler and powerful but also really sick at first, and eventually his fiance helps him take down the lab owner who also has an alternate form of venom. Eddie and Venom have to defeat the lab owner together.

There will be a sequel! I am so excited.
