My daughter got into the school music program
My daughter got into the school music program in her school, so happy for her. For me to go to school has a child and never experienced art or music made me depressed. I was a talented artist as a child and my parents didn’t nurture that, there were signs there and my parents never took me seriously. I attended a Catholic school in Brooklyn, the focus on academics just like most public schools in New York at that time with no music or art program. The only experience I had in art, going to school was high school, my art teacher who I had for two years in high school, he left the school because he wanted to retire, I beg him to stay because I wanted to him to help with my portfolio. There was also a fashion design teacher at my high school who cannot draw and all my classmates told me she was jealous of me. All she teach was the names of garments. We did not learn how to sew. She purposely did not enter my fashion sketches in School or some type of art show that she knew outside the school for awards. But I know I was going to do bigger and better things without her help. Even with my poor grades and SAT scores, my raw talent got me into two of the best art and fashion schools at that time in New York. I got accepted to the fashion Institute of technology where I completed my fashion design degree and fashion merchandising and bachelors in business; and two years in Pratt Institute. At first, the schools did not accepted me because of my poor grades but they couldn’t deny the raw talent that I had, so I later got accepted by both schools at the same time after I’ve just finished high school. If I was given the opportunity at younger age who knows what other stuff I could have made or designed. One thing I can say good about Philadelphia and maybe Pennsylvania as a state as a whole they try to provide music or art for their students. They are some schools that don’t have either program in Philly but they try their best to make sure that all the public schools to have it, it’s not perfect. And when you think about it a lot, you will find a lot of artists came out of Philadelphia, either an artist or musician.
I haven’t settle since the kids started school.
I haven’t settle since the kids started school; I have been running back and forth since they school started and I wasn’t sure what do with all this extra time I have now, I’m not used to it. I’m hoping maybe next month I will be able to settle and have a better idea how to manage my time better. I’m also enjoying every moment having all this time to myself and relaxing in between.
This will by my daughter last year at elementary school so I’m super excited. I have applied to gifted magnet school for her and charter school. Me and her farther both agreed that if she does get in any of the public school we selected then we will send her to private school. I cannot have go to her middle zone school, it is too crowded and there to many fights. They already been on the news for negative reason. I still got to make sure they see their doctor appointments.
They all attend three different school, hopefully next year they will attend the same school.
Suffering from acne and facial heat rash
I have been suffering from acne and facial heat rash since I got pregnant with my first child. Since I came back from South America, I realize I also suffer from heat rash. When I was pregnant my skin got supersensitive and I couldn’t put any product on my face. When I will wash my face with any product if felt like fire was on my face. So I only will wash my face with water and then as the years go by I was able to use soap and my skin was able to tolerate more things. But my skin is still sensitive so I thought about trying a natural alternative to deal with my heat rash and acne. I have try aloe and it really worked on my skin but I had allergic reaction to it when some of the aloe got into my nose and mouth while I was watching my face. This allergic reaction cause my face be swollen.
That’s a teenager I suffer from acne temporary I discover a method to get rid of my acne,I will pop the pimples no matter how small they were. And I use this product call Medicaid St. Ives scrub and its solved all my acne problems and all the sudden they stop making it in the US. The method was I will wash my face with regular soap and then I use the scrub and I did this every day and it worked.
I’m gonna try to figure out another method that going to solve my problem by using a natural way of cleaning my face. I have try an alternative facial products that is also very expensive, I have found a better product that work which is Mary Kay, but I have to get a consultant in order to buy the product which is just annoying, it will be just easier to go to the store or to buy it online. I will just use their products but sometimes I don’t want to be bother to speak to the consultant in order to buy the product. So I’m going to be experimented and figure out different ways that will work with my face and I will keep you posted later.
My reoccurring dream
- Back to school
I’m getting my kids ready back to school I’m so happy because this will be the first year that all my kids are going to be attending school and I finally can I get the house to myself. I also got one of my child into a charter school so I’m truly happy and I feel very fortunate and blessed. I live in Philadelphia and they don’t have good public schools so is very frustrating dealing with the public schools in Philadelphia. I think the schools in Philadelphia got a little better since I move, yeah but they have a long way to go. Today was my son me and greet for kindergarten and he will be starting school Monday. My other two kids, starting school after Labor Day. So it’s gonna be so strange me being the house all by myself. I do want to put a YouTube video up but I’ve been doing a lot of the stuff with my children so I just haven’t got to it and I really need the extra space in my house so I could be able to do more videos is hard to do the videos where I don’t have any space because of my kids so I’m hoping that I’ll be able move soon. Where I will have my own office space and having that office space will allow me to do more things my videos. I finished buying all their school supplies and I just got a buy clothes for my daughter and I’m done get in them ready for school.
