Can I take a moment to appreciate Tyler (Tyra Banks). He helped me become fabulous during my D.C. trip last year and I’m glad he is well loved.
All Nations was a great turn out! Got there at 4 and left at 8. Worked two shifts with Jackie and it was super duper fun. Although it started off a little slow, it gradually picked up pace and was really fun. It was a great way to start the holiday season. :D
My major teacher was asking my friend which high school her little sister is planning on going to, and my friend says, ‘She wants to go to NWCTA.’
And major teacher laughs and says, ‘No! Thats so stupid! She needs to come here! Its better! Make her come here.’ And two others agreed.
This happens way too often around magnet schools, especially my school, and it really annoys me. Not everyone has the same passion as you. And what gives you the right to say which is better if you haven’t experienced first hand what it’s like to attend a school like that.
I got to see my cousin before they went back to San Diego tomorrow. Haven’t seen them in 6 years… I haven’t seen my nephew for that long and the last time I saw him was when he could still walk. Seeing them like this makes me realize the hardships and patience families like them have. Gavin battles Tay-Sachs disease that alters the central nervous system and as a result, he’s unable to function normally like other kids do-walk, talk, swallow, or eat. It was such a sweet moment when all the kids were watching him during his massage session next to the Christmas tree. :) And this is the picture that results… Thomas was also trying to talk to him… Sigh, these kids make me feel so happy. Watching Gavin sleep was so sad. I feel for families who deal with this on a daily basis, and I know that their patience and perseverance pays off. Nothing can tear away a family’s bond. I am so glad I got to see Gavin and I pray that they find a cure… #HopeForTaySachs
