My Christmas 2010 Wish List

So Christmas is next week and I have just a few things on my list this year. Not much. Here is what I want =) :

I have been asking for a puppy every year since I was like 6. And I have yet to get one. I really want a teacup maltese. They are soooo cute and tiny!!!!

I plan to do a lot of traveling and blogging in the upcoming year so having a digital camera is essential. I really like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. A friend of mine let me play with it for a little bit and I really loved the quality of the photos. 

A new IPOD!!!! I had an Ipod Touch but it stopped working on me after dropping it a few times. Traveling to and from work/school has been weird without my music. 
I really need a new make-up brush set. A Mac brush set would be great!!! I wore out the brushes I already have lol. 

and last but certainly not least,

MONEY!!!!! So I can pay my Spring tuition...

Day 09: Something That I'm Proud of In the Past Few Days

I am proud to have finished my Fall semester without going crazy. This has certainly been one hell of a semester. I don't think I did too bad, but I could have done better. But I am so glad that it is over!!!! Only two more semesters to go and I'll finally have my degree.

A sad thing in life is that sometimes you meet someone who means a lot to you only to find out in the end that it was never bound to be and you just have to let go.

Day 08: My Short Term Goals for the Month

  • Ace all of my finals
  • Complete intern applications for spring
  • find someone to sponsor my study abroad trip to Egypt
  • make my 2011 resolutions
  • pay the remainder of my Fall tuition
  • be debt free by new years
These are just a few goals that I had set for myself for the month. I need to do this monthly.

Day 07: A Picture of Someone Who has the Greatest Impact on My life

I don't have a picture of this person with me right now to post. But the person who had the greatest impact in my life would most definitely be my MOMMY!!! Gosh I love this woman. She had a hard life growing up in Brooklyn, but she didn't let that deter her from accomplishing her goals. My early years on this earth started out a little rough as well but I am so glad she took me and my sister in. One of the main things she stressed to me and my sister was how to prevail over life's many hurdles. Mommy gave us opportunities that she never had, and made sure we didn't take that for granted but to take advantage of it. She believed in me when I didn't even believe in myself and she never gave up on me. Because of her, I am the beautiful and refined young lady I am today. I LOVE YOU MOMMY!!

Keri Hilson??? Really?

I can't....I love Keri but her new video was a little too provocative for my liking. The lyrics were too raunchy. The dancing?????...over the top and pathetic to the 10th power... Unfortunately, women in the business have to stoop this low in order to stay relevant, and it sucks because men aren't subjected to the same kind of pressure. SMHRRH.

I Can Only Be Me

Day 05: A Picture of Somewhere I’ve Been To

Nova Scotia, Canada
Went when I was 12 and it was my first time traveling out the country. I took a cruise ship and Nova Scotia was one of the places we visited. It really is a beautiful place, however when I went up there it didn't look as sunny as it did in this picture. It was so foggy and cold!!

Day 04: A habit that I Wish I Didn’t Have...

I have so many!!!!! Number one would definitely be me always waiting until the last minute to do things. I don't know why I do it. I've done it so many times that it became an ingrained response, and it almost never turns out well for me. I took a speech class over the summer and we were required to do four speeches to pass the class. My professor told us the first day of class what we had to cover in our speeches, so I had ample time to work on them. I BS'ed around on the first speech, and waited until the day of to work on it. I ended up doing the speech impromptu and my professor was able to tell I wasn't prepared, so she gave me a big fat D!!! That speech really brought my grade down. There was no reason for me to have came out that class with less than a B. It wasn't like the topics were hard.  But I def learned my lesson that day, and I am currently still working on my time management skills. What are some of you guys habits???

Day 02: The Meaning Behind My Blog Name

Hmmm, I had no idea what to name my blog. I originally named it Sincerely, Anastasia Monet but deemed that too cliche and decided to use that as my url instead. I was listening to Common's In My Own World (Check the Method) while I was working on the layout, and figured I'll use the title of his song as my blog name for the time being. I thought about changing it later, but I just might stick with it.

What Kind of Person Am I?: For Colored Girls Review

Last night my professor invited my classmates and I to see For Colored Girls movie screening. I also had the opportunity to see my professor Dr. Ammons, Phylicia Rashad, and another young lady (i forgot her name but she was a DC news reporter) discuss the movie in a panel immediately after the movie ended. All I can say is WOW!!! lol I don't want to spoil and give away too much, because it doesn't come out until friday and a lot of people havn't seen it yet, but I think Tyler Perry done an amazing job. 
For those who aren't familiar with the movie, For Colored Girls is a movie based on Ntozake Shange's play "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf." The play featured 7 women known by colors who performed a collection of 20 poems. In the movie, the women had names but wore their colors. Each of the poems dealt with major issues that impacted women on what it meant to be a women of color in the world. The themes of the movie included infidelity, pregnancy, homosexuality, molestation, sexual morality, domestic abuse, alcoholism, and death. You will take a journey with each character as they change their lives through negative and positive choices. Nothing is sugar-coated in this movie. As a young woman watching this, it is difficult not to be disgusted, sympathetic and familiar with their drama. Bring lots and LOTS of tissues because you will be on an emotional rollercoaster because you will feel the pain and tragedy each character feels. If one story doesn't touch you, believe me another's will. This is not a date night type of movie lol. The panel was great as well. I was so excited to see Phylicia Rashad, she is so beautiful in person and funny!!!! I encourage all women, young or old to go out and watch this movie as it celebrates sisterhood.

     Hey! Well, first allow me to introduce myself. My name is Anastasia Monet. I am a 20-something year old student at Howard University from Fayetteville, NC, by way of Brooklyn, NY. I am fairly new to this blogging thing. I created this blog back in March, but never actually posted anything until now (procrastination got the best of me lol tsk.tsk.). I am still trying to determine the direction I want this blog to go. I do know that I don't want this blog to be based solely on music,fashion, and beauty. I was thinking using this as a means to share my experiences living in DC and random rants on any given thing. If time permits, I will be updating regularly. I hope you guys enjoy my blog! I am looking forward to sharing my thoughts and getting feedback from you all.
