As My Year Draws To A Close . . .

Yes, you read that correctly. My life year will draw to a close at the end of this day. A new year will emerge. Filled with endless opportunities if I have the passion and drive to go for them. When. The correct word is when. Many use the traditional calendar New Year to come up with their resolutions, goals, plans…

Clutter, Clutter . . . And MORE Clutter!

There is just WAY TO MUCH going on with my blog! I mean honestly, how can anyone find anything in this place?! The funny thing is that I JUST went through a blog redesign within the past six months I believe. I had these visions of grandeur. I was doing so much that I figured I could document it. ALL…

My Weekend Wrap Up

I had a pretty full weekend this time around. The cool thing about it was one day was completely planned out and the other was not. My Saturday. This day was completely devoted to Latin dancing. The Resolution Jam that I mentioned in my previous post had a series of workshops during the day before the actual party got started.…

It’s the annual Resolution Jam hosted by the Stuck On Salsa crew here in the DMV area. This year it’s being held at The Salsa Room in Arlington,…

We Love New Years!

At least until those years are no longer new. Now why is that . . . do you think? We all seem so quick to cast aside what we deem as old. That includes Time which has had the predictable nature of becoming our past. Many of us view the past as something to forget. There are many reasons for…

My Craving…And My Ridiculous Way To Curb It

I have this really bad habit. I like to eat and enjoy Snickers ice cream bars. All. The. Time. Wait. I’m sorry. Let me do this right . . . Hi! My name is Kionda and I’m an addict. No lie. I walk everywhere. I pass a ton of convenience stores along the way. About seven times out of ten…

It’s Hard To Get Moving…Must Be Sunday

I‘m still in bed. It’s just too comfortable to be anywhere else at the moment. Sure, I grudgingly crawled out of bed to take care of the essentials. You know…going to the bathroom and all that. I gleefully crawled right back into bed after a short detour to get a glass of milk. I woke up at 8:00 AM. It’s…

Addresses Not Valid Over Time

As I was looking through my blog and seeing how much I really was not tending to it much lately, I noticed my blog roll. That is where I have links to other blogs or websites that I once liked to frequent. I clicked through a few. I found that many of them did not exist anymore. This made me…

All Around The World Same Song

There has been a lot of “same” going on with me lately. Yes, there are many things that have changed: my city, my hair, my mindset (more or less). Where the same enters the picture is how I handle myself during times of stress. The stress itself is different. The toll that it takes on my system is the same…

My First EVER Mr. Mambo’s Salsa Social

I‘ve lived here in DC for almost four years. I’ve been dancing here for almost three of those years. So the question is why, Why, WHY in the HELL have I NEVER made it out to a Mr. Mambo’s Salsa Social?! Mr. Mambo’s 1st and 3rd Saturday event was originally housed at the DC Dance Collective in upper Northwest DC.…

A Good Deed With A Side Of Ratchetness

At least that’s how I’m feeling. Let me explain. There is this gentleman that sits on the Metro grate down a bit from my office almost every day. It just happens to be right near a Starbucks. I saw him eating a bag of Cheetoes this morning on my way in. Not very healthy so I decided to buy him…

Hello Again!

I know. I’ve been gone for a very long while. I really have no excuse either. Sure, I was having an issue with finding that work/life balance. Sure, I was piling on the hobbies and activities to keep myself busy. Sure, I was exhausted ALL THE TIME. I’m guilty of it all. All of this is no reason to leave…

Throwback Thursday: Weird Day

Originally posted 27 September, 2009 Yesterday was a very weird day for me. I have no idea what happened but I began to feel really anxious and jumpy. There were a few moments when I felt like I was going to pass out. It happened early afternoon and did not stop until I crashed later that night. I had plans…

Throwback Thursday: Ah…The Weekend

Originally posted 26 September, 2009 Support this artist HERE! I haven’t posted in a few days. My mind has been in a constant state of activity during that time. You’d think I’d post what’s on my mind. For some reason at the time I did not think that wise. I needed some time to think and translate the crap that…

Throwback Thursday: Wrapping Up The Day

Originally posted on 23 September, 2009 I got bombarded by paperwork earlier. Funny thing is I am still not done. I ended up going out and doing a few showings today. Guess what…being out of the house perked me up a bit. I was feeling a bit better and was happy for it. See? I just need to get out…

Throwback Thursday: Interesting Day

Originally posted on 22 September, 2009 I did make it to the gym today. It was a decent workout…did lower body and abs today. Oh my legs are going to be hurting! Before the gym though I had a conversation with someone special in my life. That conversation placed me in a cloudy mood. It was like the answers that…

Throwback Thursday: Late Start

Originally posted 22 September, 2009 Yes I got a late start this morning. I think it was due to the fact that I could not sleep last night worth crap. I went to bed @ around 930p so I can get my butt up @ 530a to go to the gym. Yeah that didn’t happen. I didn’t get to sleep…
