Taste of DC 2012

Taste of DC is this weekend and I’m super crunked about it.  Not only will I have an opportunity to sample yum yums from over 50 local restaurants, but I can also get some noms from the local gourmet food trucks!  WOO HOO! I don’t get the chance to go out to grab lunch from … Continue reading

Motivate Me Monday

It’s been officially summer since June 21 (summer solstice).  Despite how hot it gets here in DC, summer is my favorite season.  The level of fun things to do goes up 5 notches in the summer.  Let’s not forget the fact that July is the month in which I was born and will be celebrated … Continue reading

Image and Career – How Much Is Too Much?

I had an extensive conversation the other day with a coworker/sistergirlfriend about image and career promotions.  Apparently, these two things go hand in hand, regardless of your actual technical background or qualifications.  Basically, if you were up against someone with the same expertise and talent as your own, the deciding factor in who gets picked … Continue reading

Banana Cafe: Old Fav or Just Old News?

Today I managed to get up in time for 8am service at church.  Happy Palm Sunday for those who care!  Afterwards, I met up with a friend at good ol’ Banana Cafe.  From what I remembered, they had an all-you-can-eat brunch with unlimited mimosas and a la carte banana pancakes (with caramel sauce *drool*).  We … Continue reading

Too Famous to be Ordinary

When I turned 16, I also thought that my parents (Kayrahn and Dino) would surprise me with a debutant style celebration of sorts! *cue Cinderella and Little Mermaid music* When I finally woke up from MY dream (I thought my parents were going to hit the lottery and buy me a Lexus and designer pocketbook, … Continue reading

I’m ‘Bout This Life

For most jobs, we have deadlines for when our milestones are due. When we effectively meet our goals in the time allotted, accolades of sorts are relinquished. I think it’s safe to say all of us experienced this situation at one point, or few, in our lives. In good ways, and some would say less … Continue reading
