What’s going on with me this week
1. This past weekend was Clark Atlanta University homecoming I normally go and hang with my peeps but this year everyone has a family and no one is feeling it anymore. A friend and I was talking and she said that a lot of the black colleges get no Alumni love but the white colleges do. I agree in a way. Although I loved going to an all black college I wish I went to a more mixed school. I think it would have looked better on my resume and I just think I would have learned a bit more. I didn’t learn shit at CAU and I am being real. At a black college it’s who you know not what you know. At a white college it’s probably like that but not as much you gotta earn your stuff at most of them believe me I went to one for summer classes and they were harder but I actually learned. CAU was nice but if you didn’t dress or look a certain way then you was just a nobody. Anyone feel that some colleges have better Alumni association than others?
2. I am on the PTO board for sons school. I had no idea we had so much power on that board. Like we can choose what curriculum goes into the school, we can choose how to set up the schools as far as classrooms and we can choose the uniform. Last week we had a meeting about changing the uniform. Right now the kids wear khaki pants and blue, red, or white polo shirts. Well per request some of the 5th graders and 6th graders moms said that their daughters would benefit if they changed the bottoms to blue because of that monthly thing we all hate. I thought it was a great idea because it happened to me. I was embarrassed wearing a khaki uniform pants and having my period come on in the middle of the day. I voted yes to change the bottoms and then the board got into a mini cat fight. I won’t go into details but the majority won and we will be changing the uniform. I was good too I didn’t open my mouth and argue I just watched others do it.
3. This weeks review is Hot Chocolate from Dunkin’s Donut. I love hot chocolate but usually make my own. On Friday morning of last week I stopped to Mickey D to get my son some breakfast before school and I wanted a hot chocolate. I have had theirs before so I know how it tasted but the line was wrapped around the building and I knew I would be late dropping son off so I stopped to Dunkin’s Donut instead (it was closer to sons school Mickey D is closer to my house). My son got 2 donuts….(yes I got him donuts who gon check me teachers have to deal with sugar rush not me) and the line was in the streets…literally I was like WTH. It moved fast though so I got me a hot chocolate. Overall I give it a 8 out of 10 only reason being I needed more sugar. I tried to drink it after it was sitting for 20 min I burned my tongue. When I got home I was finally able to drink some and I was like where is the sugar so I dumped some in and stirred it, it tasted much much better. Who has the best hot chocolate in your book? And don’t say Starbucks I heard they rob you blind with their prices.
4. Over the weekend I had 2 birthday parties to go to one of them was with my blog buddy Mimi we joined in with her to celebrate her sons 7th birthday. I was able to knock out pumpkin picking and a birthday party all rolled into one.
