Life is a Learning Curve

Life has its highs and lows, ups and downs and boy let me tell you I was a part of it ALL. Towards 2014 I had a car wreck in a different state, got engaged to an amazing man, got into a heated argument with a family member trying to defend an innocent person they didn't like which led me and that person not speaking to each other anymore, had to let go of people that wasn't good for me. Everything that had happened I couldn't control it. No matter what I did to try to diffuse things it went wrong except my engagement.

God had to show me things, he had to show me people's real true colors. Sometimes I feel stupid for helping some people that don't want help but need it or care for it, I feel like a doormat because I'm so nice and people see that and take advantage of it. When I defend myself it either goes in my favor or blows up in my face, most of the time it blows up in my face. I also sometimes just grin and bare it to avoid conflict.

I've learned that some people are just not happy and you can't please everyone no matter what you do, they are just not happy. Some people are also out to ruin your happiness because they are miserable. I learn to stay away from those people regardless if they are close to me. I learned that some of my closest friends don't care for my happiness even when I was happy for them. I have this save everyone complex, I always want to save someone that needs help but I learned that you can't save everyone, as not everyone wants to be saved.

Everything happens for a reason and for a season. Life is life and it's full of surprises, twists and turns, life is too short you have to learn to live life to the fullest regardless of any circumstances good or bad or get rocks thrown at you, if you fall down get up, dust yourself off and try again. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Pinkberry Pumpkin Review

When I heard Pinkberry was coming out with Pumpkin this month I couldn't wait to try it. I love EVERYTHING Pumpkin. This is not a brand new product as it was hear but in their archives ready to come back. Now I didn't rush to try this flavor right away like I normally would because I was so busy; boy was I'm glad the wait was over.

When I tried my first bite of this creamy desert it was like eating a slice of pumpkin pie but in a frozen treat form. It had pieces of the nutmeg in it, it was light and flavorful at the same time with a pumpkin puree taste likeness. Now Pinkberry suggest you pair your Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt with Cinnamon, Whipped Cream, and Honey Grahams toppings to get the maximum flavor experience. I only got Chocolate Chip toppings and it's just as good. I love this frozen yogurt, the taste and smell opens your senses for this holiday season.

Is Cable a Necessity?

Necessity - something that is necessary, the quality or state of being necessary, something that you must have or do

This topic comes up all the time as I witness the fascination of cable and its amenities it has to offer to the consumer. I used to have cable and I loved it. Over the years it has become a non important thing in my life, the economy took its toll over the years and it was time to budget as much as I can to survive. I had to think about what comes first; food or cable? coats, shoes, and clothing or cable? a roof over my head or cable?

Some things are more important than cable it is a WANT not a need. Cable is pure entertainment at best. Why add another high bill a month for just a couple of channels? there are other alternatives out there like, Vudu, Netflix, and the list goes on. There are a lot of streaming internet programs out there to explore for a reasonable price. You are paying for entertainment as a want NOT a need, you don't need cable to survive.

Even when you pay for basic cable I can guarantee you, you are not watching every single channel they have to offer. If you are financially stable and can afford cable as entertainment then that's a different story. But I do just fine with regular TV channels and very content with it, even though I wish one of my favorite shows "The Walking Dead was on regular TV I still manage; I'll just wait til each season comes out on Netflix. I know for a fact when our calling comes to go home, we can't take our material things with us.

Machete Kills Review

Machete Kills is the second installment of Machete, I wanted to see this movie because I saw the first one thinking this one would be better. Boy, was I wrong! the main star of this movie is Danny Trejo as Machete, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Lady GaGa, Amber Heard, Carlos Estevez aka Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson and the list goes on.

The movie is about Machete working with the U.S. Government to take down an arms dealer that's plan on launching a missile into space. Sounds like a good plot for a Robert Rodriguez type movie right? WRONG! I was so bored with the storyline, trying so hard jokes and the poor acting I wanted to go to sleep. I tried to laugh at some of the jokes but it bland at best.

The concept was kind of there but fell short in my opinion. I could have bought a latte instead of watching this movie.

Gravity Review

I decided to see this movie yesterday after hearing great reviews of it. It's starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, it's about two astronauts trying to survive unfortunate events that took place outer space. Trying to find a way home was impossible in the eyes of these two astronauts. The film took you where they were and their struggles, it was like you are in space with them. It was heart pounding and exciting, the special effects was breathtaking as the camera pans into every inch of detail. You can't help but to feel compassion for Sandra and George's characters.

I was absolutely impress with this movie, this is one of the best Sci-Fi/Thriller films I can remember. It's so good I want to see it again. Two thumbs WAY up!!!

Pinkberry Hot Chocolate Review

So Pinkberry came out with a new fall flavor Friday, Hot Chocolate! I was very excited to see the poster of the new flavor coming soon. The Hot Chocolate replaced the Chocolate Hazelnut which is one of my favorites :( so that left a bruised on my heart. But it will be back again, soon! before I buy a fro-yo I get a sample of it first just to see if I like it or not.

The description of the Hot Chocolate at Pinkberry says it has a light, creamy cocoa flavor, with hints of toasted marshmallow. Yeah, it's definitely light but it tasted like, very light fudge like a fudge bar. I didn't get the toasted marshmallow taste though. It didn't pack the full, decadent, rich flavor like a cup of actual hot chocolate but it did it's best to create a light version of it and it's good enough for me to satisfy my sweet tooth until the Chocolate Hazelnut comes back. So next week when I run out of my take home size fro-yo, I'm going to get Hot Chocolate again.
