R&B singer Monica selling her Atlanta home

It’s not only good to have your own coin but it doesn’t hurt when your husband has one too. Apparently Monica said this 6 bedroom 5 full bathrooms, and 2 half baths totally a staggering 6,288 sq ft was not enough. This is a lot of house for a person with only three children, whatever the case maybe she has decided to let it go. Now I’m sure she has bought another residence in the Atlanta area because her two boy’s attend quite a prestigious private school way off in the boondocks in Newnan, GA. Well if you can cough up $499,900.00 you can definitely live like an R&B singer. Check out the pics below and click on the link, if you feel like making an offer.

Moonlight Movie Screening

moonlight

Tomorrow I will be attending a private screening of the new movie “MOONLIGHT” in Atlanta. 

A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.
At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.
  
“MOONLIGHT is a Masterpiece…a strong contender for best movie of the year”
-Rolling Stone
“*****This film is, without a doubt, the reason we go to the movies; to understand, to come closer, to ache, hopefully with another.”
-Time Out 
“An indelible portrait of an imperiled lift, MOONLIGHT is quietly devastating in its depiction of masculinity, race, poverty, and identity. 
-Screen International 
“Moonlight’s telling of identity and self-acceptance is crucial. It gives a voice to those robbed of theirs. It is a movie for the moment – in more ways than one.”
-MIC 
Check Out the Trailer below:
Opening Theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on October 21st 
Expansion starting October 28 

Going to DC- National Museum of African American History and Culture

african american history.png

Last year I read an article about the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, I then continued to read the article and saw that none other than our President Barack Obama would be there. Not only will he be there but he will be cutting the ribbon for the grand opening. Full of excitement I knew this was an event I had to attend. Being such an historic moment I knew only one person I could think of to attend with my Dad. My dad works extremely hard and I barely get to spend time with him, so I knew this one of those special events that we could possibly attend together. So I anxiously call him to see if his schedule would permit him to attend, and the answer was yes. I immediately logged onto to Delta to purchase our tickets, this event is so symbolic because it not only celebrates our African American heritage but it also helps to eliminate strife that has plagued this nation for decades. In a few hours we will be boarding the plane to head to DC I will vlog this entire trip, so get ready for some amazing video.

“What we have to do is use our history to propel us to make even more progress”-President Barack Obama

Do we care if NeNe Returns to RHOA????

 

 

251

Everybody’s knows NeNe has been with Bravo’s hit reality show Real Housewives of Atlanta since season 1. She is the only original housewife that’s never left the show now Sheree left at one point and when those checks dried up she quickly returned. But are we here for NeNe over the years NeNe’s attitude has become just down right awful. I mean that is the reason most of you were tuning in to watch her and all the other cast members act a plump fool. But she has this air about her that I just don’t like now I am very happy for NeNe and all her success that she has accomplished. I like to give credit where credit is due it can be hard building a brand having to act a fool to keep your spot on TV, but landing real TV roles working on Broadway launching a clothing line on HSN, and cashing Trump checks says a lot. But has she just out grown reality television, NeNe has said it over a million times Bravo will always be home to her. But then again she goes on to say that she’s on to bigger and better things. Well I’m not sure if NeNe will be returning for this upcoming season of Realhousewives of Atlanta and I’m not sure if I actually want her to. I think the cast they have now can hold their on and I’m really looking forward to seeing what the newest housewife Lena brings to the table. Check out some pictures below when I met the Real Housewife of Atlanta at a Charity event.

 

 

 

Why Millennials Can’t Find A Job

buddy-graduation

 

If you aren’t familiar with this story you should be by now, if not you most likely know a millennial, that’s invested thousands of dollars into acquiring some form of a degree. Now with this degree this person believes that they will have an opportunity to make more money, to get a meaningful career, and some day possibly buy things like a house and just be an adult. Well that’s the typical way this college thing has worked in the past but now we are living in a new day and age. I have to take myself for example, I went to college the great Clark Atlanta University may I add. I went with the ambition of becoming a grown up in a sense, I saw my degree as a way to get to the top. I was always taught education is the key to success once it’s acquired no one can ever take it away from you. While I don’t regret my choice to attend college at all, I was living in a fairy tale land thinking everything would just fall into place once I graduated. First off I was not properly prepared I didn’t take time to do internships in the summer. I didn’t really know what career path I wanted I just knew what I didn’t want to do.

So there I was the day had come May 20, 2013 I was slated to walk across that stage to receive a degree I had know idea what to do with. So in front of my friends and family I did it, I got the degree I’d been working on for the past four years. Inside I didn’t know whether to walk away or just run, because on the inside I felt like crap. I hadn’t landed some nice job with a corner office nor was I headed to work on wall street. Yet I was working at a local hospital as an insurance verification specialist making $14 per hr, this was clearly not the way I imagined my life after obtaining my Bachelor’s degree. I was however grateful that I had a job, because many of the other graduates didn’t hey they always say something is better than nothing. That still didn’t make me feel any better about my position, I wanted more a wanted a nicer car I wanted a nicer apartment I wanted to go shopping and not have just a $50 budget I wanted to go on vacation, and the reality was making $14 per hr I couldn’t do those things. So I did what a lot of people do in life “I Settled”. Yes I settled and I just became ok I said you know what I’m living I may not have the best of the best but I’m making it. I stayed with that mindset for about 6 months then something clicked. I said to myself I can’t continue to live like this. If I were to die tomorrow my legacy can not be that I graduated from college and I work at a hospital, I knew I had to get out of this cycle I had fallen into. I knew it was time for a change, this is when I began to prepare for the kind of life I wanted. In order to have more money you have to do either two things, make more money, or cut your expenses. All of my expenses were mandatory, so I only had one other option. I had to make more money, then that’s where I encountered this major roadblock. No I wasn’t the graduate that went back home after graduation saying I couldn’t find a job but I also wasn’t that graduate that took time to intern, and have some meaningful experience. So I began to apply for jobs, job interview after job interview seemed endless. I did get some job offers but I wasn’t willing to settle for some measly salary of $25k. In that time span I went on over 60 job interviews, finally I landed a job that would allow me to move I signed the offer letter for an $40k Salary I felt like I hit the jackpot. Well with more money comes more problems, after upgrading to a brand new car and getting a new apartment. Only a few short months later I found myself getting some familiar urges I wanted more money. Of course I was happy for a new job, but then I started realizing somethings my job was now an hour away which meant I was spending more in gas, and if you’re familiar with Atlanta traffic is horrible. So while I was making more money I started spending more money too. Then on top of all this madness, I find out I’m going to become a dad “talk about pressure”. So then I started applying and interviewing like crazy and ultimately land the job I wanted. After a few more job changes which involved moving from Atlanta to DC then back to Atlanta I am now in a meaningful career. I just closed on my first home back in March and now all I seek to do is build my 401k and hopefully get married pretty soon. It is my personal opinion that millennials can find jobs they just refuse to work for low wages, because in their minds their better than a $14 hr job. Moral of the story is you can have it all just plan to work for it, know that nothing comes over night. Everything that you’re currently going through will only prepare you for where you’re supposed to be in life.

Another Tax Lien- Toni Braxton

Toni braxton.png

Now listen when I tell you I am a Toni Braxton fan I am telling you the truth. Now the living legend seems to be in a bit of hot water once again when it comes down to her finances. I can’t for the life of me seem to understand how Beyonce has made all of these millions of dollars getting these girls in formation and we’ve never heard a peep about her finances. I’m not sure who’s over there managing Toni’s funds but she needs to get that together. Now she can hire me to help her out but who’s to say my check won’t clear. I will say this to owe $124k in back taxes means that you made a pretty good coin. To say that Toni hasn’t really been poppin since back in the 90’s when I made my grand entrance on this great earth speaks volumes. I mean most of these singers these days aren’t lasting past a one hit single, and Ms. Braxton still can fill a medium size stadium. The next time you fall down on your knees, please keep Toni Braxton and her finances lifted up in Jesus name Amen. But hey this little tax problem shouldn’t be a problem, cause Toni’s about to cash in she’s going on tour, and she’ll be getting another check from Braxton Family Values pretty soon. Check the link for Toni tour dates below:
