Making Strides Walk For A Great Cause

Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As you all may know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This month is dedicated to those who have lost their lives due to breast cancer and breast cancer survivors.

Now a little backstory about on how I got involved. A few years ago, a friend of mine had invited me to join her and her team for the Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk in Central Park. I still remember when she told me how many miles we were going to be walking. By the way, it was 4 miles. Yikes!

With a raised brow, I was thinking to myself "Hey, you could do this. You walk all the time. It can't be that hard."

Yeah...right. I remember being so tired and sore after our lunch. However, I did enjoy the heck out of myself and the wonderful ladies I have come to know. So I can't complain. It made me look at my friend, Nellie in a whole new light. I never realized how engrossed in the cause she was. I mean, here was this woman who was one of my closest friends from high school asking me and some of her closest friends to join her to do this walk.

She had invited us to do volunteer work with New York Cares. I did two events with her. I had planned on working some events myself, but I procrastinated to no end. So, when she asked me to come to the walk with her, after a year hiatus I couldn't pass it up. I mean it is a great cause. To raise money for cancer research and help women get early detection. I don't think we should wait til our late 40's and early 50's to get tested. We should get tested once we start puberty in my opinion. Because you never know. The walk is on October 21st at Central Park. However, there are other locations around the city. So I urge you, even if you don't know someone who has breast cancer, please sign up through the Making Strides website. Donate  what you can in hopes of finding a cure, so no child(ren), husband, mother, sister, and aunt would lose someone to this horrible disease. Get tested!

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
