wOrLd AiDs DaY

well for those of you who don't know today is world aids day.Image and video hosting by TinyPic
World Aids Day is observed
December 1 each year,and is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. It is common to hold memorials to honor persons who have died from HIV/AIDS on this day. Government and health officials also observe the event, often with speeches or forums on the AIDS topics. Since 1995, the President of the United States has made an official proclamation on World AIDS Day. Governments of other nations have followed suit and issued similar announcements.

AIDS has killed more than 25 million people between 1981 and 2007.& an estimated 33 million people worldwide live with HIV as of 2007.With facts like this it is said that HIV is one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history.

Ever since i was little i knew that i wanted to help change the world how exactly, at the moment i didn't know.But thinking about it i figured out that i want to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS.I feel that at times this issue is left untalked about.I want to help put it in the spotlight and i want to inform people that no matter how much you wish it would go away it won't but we all can help to have as many people as possible know what they should and shouldn't do to keep HIV/AIDS from spreading more then what it already has.

With me being in love with my computer and the internet i found some great sites that show you how you can help contribute to helping the AIDS epidemic in Africa.& the sites are:
on this website it gives you

HIV/AIDS Resources and it tells you how to

Gain awareness about the disease and learn how you can support the cause!

some of the ways you can help support is by doing the littlest thing like buying a (red)ipod nano or shuffle,buying a cup of starbucks coffee,and you can even help by buying a pair of converse.

Another website that show you how you can help is:
on this website it tells you how you can support the cause and it tells you how much the action you make can help.For Example:since the holidays are coming soon i'm pretty sure that i'm not the only one who buys christmas cards.With you are able to buy product(red) hallmark cards and the purchase of one hallmark card with sound provides a single treatment to help REDUCE THE RISK OF HIV TRANSMISSION from mother to child.

Well i would like to end this blog by saying for those of you who are sexually active i recommend that you go out and get tested and always remember no matter the situation your in... BE SAFE!!!

7 LONG MoNtHs!!!!

Well is it just me or have other 15 year olds had the sudden urge to find a job, that way they could earn an reasonable amount of money rather then asking their parents .well i know i certainly have, recently i have been asking my mom for money constantly so that i can expand my collection of clothes now i'm to the point where it is becoming a pain asking her for money i really want to find a job so that i won't have to rely on any 1 but myself.But the only thing stopping me from working is the fact that i'm im 15 and i won't be 16 for 7 more months...but once i'm able to i will definitely be working.OmGeE!!! i need MONEY!!!!!
Man let me just start by saying saturday has become my new favorite day reason being...well before last saturday i had a workshop i had to go to for this program that i've talked about before called GWN otherwise known as girls write now.Every workshop we write about different genres,so far we've had a memoir and a orientation workshop.The lastest workshop was about poetry the two themes we had to make poems out of were sustenance and hunger.In the workshop the gwn leaders talked about a contest titled Image and video hosting by TinyPic
scholastic art & writing awards and basically it's when you write pieces in any genre from poetry to non fiction to humor stories and you submit them to scholastic(by the way that is where the workshop took place in the scholastic building which is in the village) and if your piece(s) are good enough they get published and scholastic' s annual anthology. also in the workshop we learned how to write sestinas and villanelles(yea it sounds weird but i'll explain it in another blog) And we met a lady by the name of Lisa Ann Sandell and Lisa during her sophmore and junior year in college moved to israel(in seventh grade i went to turkey to go to a space camp and while there i made friends who are from israel, any who...) and her being there inspired her to write a book called The Weight Of The Sky.Recently Lisa wrote a book that was published in 2007 called Song Of The Sparrow which is a retelling of arthurian legend.And Lisa's inspiration behind this book was a poem Called The Lady Of Shalott by tennyson.and this poem was about a girl who was madly in love with this guy and he rejected her...and becuz of being rejected she died of a broken heart.SORRY IF MY SUMMARY OF THE POEM SUCKED I HAVEN'T READ THE ENTIRE POEM YET!!.Anyways Lisa also told us about one day she went to a art museum and they had this beautiful picture of the lady of shalott:
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
and this picture is by John William Waterhouse and this picture was made in 1888.
Something else that Lisa told us before her departure was that she read this poem called the flea by John Dunn and this poem is about a guy who is madly in love with this woman and he wants a flea to bite him and then to bite the woman he is in love with so that their blood can be mingled together inside of the flea.when lisa told us this everyone was very confused but in a good way the minute she told us about it everyone started writing down the title and author of the poem.
OMGEE man i am excited becuz with the help of my mentor i am going to enter a fiction story writing contest by seventeen magazine(ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE
anyways in the contest you have to write a fiction story about whatever you want to write about the only restrictions is that it has to be no more then 5oo words which is a piece of cake for me.The prize for the winner is a cash prize of $2,500,a trip for two to have lunch with meg cabot (who is the author of the princess diaries) in either new york city or key west florida,a laptop by intel,and your story will be published in a 2009 issue of seventeen magazine.
As for any good books i'm reading lately,with the wide spread of twilight mania i thought i should be apart of the madness so today after school i went to barnes and nobles and i bought twilight(yea i know many people r thinking wow you wait to now to like the books lmao i know i know it's just that at first vampire romances weren't my thing but thanks to my friends i'm interested in it now)and once i finish blogging i'm gonna put on my sweats and cuddled up in a nice corner and start reading.OOOO i almost forgot my second reason for liking saturdays is being able to go to a nice cafe on a VERY cold last saturday i met up with my mentor from GWN named christina and together we went to this cafe on 34 street named pax wholesome foods Image and video hosting by TinyPic(umm... this isn't the one i went to though) yea but the food there looked and smelled amazing and since i was on a budget i only got a cup of lipton tea lol.But if and when i go there again i will buy something to eat.

LONG time No BlOg!!!!

well hello everyone... well let me start off by saying i noe i haven't blogged in a while it is just that i have been very busy with school work and this writing program i'm in called girls write now
Image and video hosting by TinyPic &
girls write now is a program dedicated to high school girls from every borough in new york city who when they grow up want to become writers.It's a very cool program might i had and basically what we do in the program is they pair a teenage girl with an adult woman who is in the writing industry& the woman you are paired with is your mentor.The mentors role is to help their mentee with writing and to guide their mentee on what it takes to be a writer.Something else that we do in the program is once a month all the mentor and mentee pairs come to together for writing workshops.Every workshop has a different topic some of the topics range from songwriting to poetry to playwriting.But so far we have only had two workshops,the first one was the orientation what we did in the orientation was meet all the mentors and mentees and we did some group excercises.In one of the group excercises we had to come up with a idea of what we would like to see on a t-shirt that involed writing(might i add that their were alot of really cool ideas).Last saturday was our second workshop and the workshop was about memoirs, it was really fun i mean the activities were cool,the lunch was great,and we meet a author named Janice Erlbaum who wrote a memoir titled Girl Bomb
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Janice gave everyone a free copy of the book too and it is really good,once i started i couldn't put it down and so far i'm on chapter 10...well that's becuz i started reading it on monday lol. And something else i thought i should blog about was my super kewl new outfit(some of the pieces i recently bought and other pieces i already owned) and last but not least here are the pics of my cute outfit:

hey everyone... so let me start off by saying today was one of the best days i've had in a while first i had a half a day of school becuz of parent teacher conferences.which was cool becuz i onli had four classes which were 2nd period(english),3rd period(music),8th period(global),and 9th period(regents prep which is normally very borin but it wasn't tadey becuz in class we watched finding nemo).& i got out of skool today at 12 which was kewl!!.Then i met up with my cuz who also had a half a day and we went to the movie theaters to see either highschool musical 3 or the secret life of bees.But we winded up seeing: Image and video hosting by TinyPic
which was fabulous lol get it?! well fabulous is one of the songs sung by ashley tisdale.I really loved the movie and before seeing it i thought i wouldn't like it and that it would be boring but boy did it prove me wrong it was great.I would definitely give the movie 2 thumbs up and five stars and i recommend everyone to go see this movie.But once i saw the movie i realized this would be the last highschool musical with corbin bleu,vanessa hudgens,zac efron,ashley tisdale,monique coleman,and lucas grabeel in it but i would say they did a awesome job in this,and if there is ever a high school musical 4 i will definitely go see it!!!.

Saturday, October 18, 2008


yes!!! it is finally saturday i would say even though i didn't do much, today was a good day.i mean after an entire week of waiting for my iphone i finally got it back today yay!! i was so happy.& since i got it this morning i've been on it all day calling everyone i know.and i'm excited cuz tommorow i'm gonna do the breast cancer walk in central park with my friends the reason y i'm doing the walk is because i think it is for such a great cause and plus in my school it is required that you have 100 community service credits to graduate and so far i have 0 so in order to gain credits my school lets the students sign up for every walk and you get credits for going and walking.Also tommorow i'm going to the salon to do my hair and now at this point i trying to decide whether or not i should get highlights i already have some though their auburn but the weird thing is when i first got them they were burgundy?! so that was weird but if i do get them done again i will get blonde highlights i think they will look cool.

man you know it's times like this that i wish i had money becuz i recently came upon some really cute purple converse Image and video hosting by TinyPic that i want to buy but at the moment i am broke!! but no worry i have been asking my mom for money and hopefully she'll give me enough money to buy them.
Something else that i have been obsessed with are wide leg pants i think they are so cute and at the moment i currently own one pair but i plan on buying more and when i do i want to buy the following:
