Michelle Obama Grooves

As if we didn't love Michelle Obama before, at the premiere for Beyonce's "Move Ya Body", FLOTUS not only hits "Running Man" but she does the "Dougie" as well. Yes, the First Lay has rhythm. The purpose of the film is to promote exercise and dancing in youth to curb childhood obesity.

Turban Turban Turban

Hey everyone!!

I am still alive and well, just swamped with classes and finals. I did want to do a post because I am leaving for the New York Times Student Journalism Institute on next Sunday. I'm really excited. Recently, my roommate, who has natural hair, started "stealing" my scarves to wear them as turbans. She's gotten pretty good at styling hers and I thought the turban look would be a good one for me this summer especially with the hot muggy weather in New Orleans. I attached a video on how she made her turban look and a few pictures of her turban and my first attempt. Enjoy!!

Quote of the Day

"I always remember the axiom: a leader...is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind." - Nelson Mandela

I'm not sure I've ever heard a more true statement. It kind of alludes to the fact that we are all puppets to a higher force. This force can be political, social, or even spiritual. In every action you make you have been influenced in some matter by someone else to make this decision.
