Randomness...

We are officially a month into school. It's been really busy, especially since I have a lot more on my plate. I work as a Resident Assistant to 34 students on my floor. I take 15 credit hrs., and I work in the computer lab. The RA gig is not really that bad. I haven't had any problems with my students or anybody else in the building yet.(knock on wood). Honestly, I think my students like me. If they need anything they have no problem knocking on my door. Other duties I have as an RA is to create bulletin boards monthly, and activities for my students. So now my creative side has to come out. Check out some of my work. Special thanks to MLB for the help.



My classes are cool. I really HATE my Copy Editing class. I like the teacher but I just hate the class. Unfortunately, I am not a detail person as much as I should be, so it is extremely challenging for me. Not to mention AP Stylebook has the most insane rules for writing. I like my Jazz dance class. I have this obsession with learning how to dance so I plan on taking dance till I graduate. Since we have a dance school the classes are really intense. Most of these people have been dancing for years. My teacher retired from the Alvin Alley Dance Company, I'm glad she is patient with me. I mean I have no sense of rhythm or coordination at all. It is definitely a site to see. Radio Interviewing is a fun class, I conduct real interviews and they are aired on the school radio station. I will upload my interviews for you all to hear and tell me what you think. Oh yeah, my Visual Journalism class is great. I learn about magazine/newspaper layouts and create my own throughout the semester. For my final I have to create a full layout meaning the article, photos, editing, everything as though it is going to print in a publication the next day. Which some might get chosen for a publication depending on how good it is.

Now that I am living by myself I cook everyday almost. Mainly healthy stuff, and I think I accidentally became a vegetarian since meat is so high. I paid $9.00 for 3 pieces of chicken last time I went shopping. Plus, I am a pretty good cook. Over this past weekend I went to my friends house and I made a salad. Check out the pic below. I think the avocado made it look kind of weird.

Basically that is all I do. My life is pretty boring and busy at the same time. I don't date, party, shop, or hang out with friends( since I only have two, one is married the other has a boyfriend). I think I am content though, which is weird for me. God is still blessing me and I really can't complain, because every night after my longs days I get to come home and look out the window at this amazing view God has blessed me with.(yes this the real view from my apartment)
I like this song I heard in my dance class by Duffy- Hanging on Too Long. I can't relate at this point in my life, but I have been there before. click the link to hear the song. That is all for now folks...

Until next time on 'The Journey of Ms. Devereaux'

LOL @ becoming a vegetarian by accident! And that is an awesome view, I'd stay staring out the window.

Whoa that salad looks banging...Avocado gives it pop of color since it is surrounded by tomatoes and crutons...Good job.

Classes sound fun and exciting.

I too am glad to know that things are going well. It's hard out there at times, but in the end it's well worth the journey.

I see you're handling business - always nice to know, I was just about inquire about those interviews until you read where you'd be uploading. Thanks, I plan to check that out.

Great view from your crib.
