Blogs to Watch (or should I say, Read!)

Virginity: It's not a disease. It's a Choice!

Ok, first of all I am pretty sure that everybody that I know, knows that I am a virgin. And I am proud of that. But,  there is one question that I have. Why is it so many people ask me the same question. Which is, "What you waiting for?" Just like that. Now, they've decided to change it up and ask it like this, "You still waiting?" It's posed differently, but it's the same question....more

Think you got what it takes to be a Millionaire or Billionaire? According to them, we all do!

A Woman is like a Tea bag. You never know how strong it is, until it's in Hot Water!

Are there any quotes that you love?  I truly love quotes. I love reading little gems of wisdom and I love what it says about the person. See, when I read these quotes, it gives me a get view into the minds of people. It gives me a great look into the depth of the quote.Whenever people say things that are incredibly memorable, whether it's deep or it's funny, you can tell that it comes from great life experience.

Honesty: Where do you draw the line between being honest and being too honest?

Honesty. A commodity that everybody says that they want in a person and in a friendship. When we ask a person if they've got time to listen to us and we share our problems with them. We ask them for advice and what they think about the situation. Then, we'll say, "I want you to be honest with me." Then, if that person is honest with us, then often times, we'll get mad with them. How is that fair?...more

Friends like These.....

For over a week, I was having major car trouble. It was some of the worst sounds for a rear tire to make. I just hated the sounds it was making. I was so nervous about driving the car, that I didn't drive it for a week!I knew that it had to be fixed and I really wanted to save money on getting it fixed.
