2011: "Ready or not, here I come!"

The new year will be here in less than a week!  Time to get acquainted with writing January 1, 2011, instead of 2010.  I don't know about you, but by March I get use to writing the correct year.  And with the new year comes resolutions; more specifically, weight loss resolutions.  Yup the time of year gym memberships skyrocket!  Well for the first time in many years, that will not be my resolutions! Un-un! For those of you that will make and break that resolution-good luck! HA!

For me, this year was bittersweet.  I gained new relationships and had the daunting task of severing dead relationships and old ties.  But it all worked out for the good-for my good.  I'm so excited about reacquainting with my favorite passion-ACTING!  Stay glued for future news about that!  And I'm equally excited about the graduation of one of my favorite people!  He worked so hard  to obtain his degree and I'm so proud of him for sticking with his goals even when faced with adversity!  (More on that too in the near future! wink)

Enough about that...let's rewind and remember what happened back then in 2010...(ugh, corny)!

Anywho:

Haiti:
How can anyone forget this devastation!?!?  No matter what anyone's beliefs were as to why such a natural disaster hit the country, the fact remains that over 200,000 people lost their life; and millions were left homeless.
The Edwards Split
John and Elizabeth Edwards separate!   Who could blame her chile?  This was an embarrassment on top of hurt for this woman.  Here she is going through a medically difficult time and his butt out there getting another woman pregnant!  If I were Elizabeth, I would cold cocked both of them...John and his mistress! WAM!  I KNOW she would have slept better!
iPAD
And that's all!  I don't have one so....yeah(shrugs)
You Tiger!
Tiger Woods admits to cheating on his wife!  And his wife whoop him with a golf club! And I don't care!  Tiger is clearly not the cheating type.  He did a horrible job with covering his tracks and now he has to pay up.  Get your money Elin!
What You Talking About Willis
Gary Coleman ashy self passed away in May. (I just realized I haven't included the months with each moment-oh well!)  I haven't followed his death closely but I have a feeling his estranged wife was involved in some way!  She better hope he doesn't come back and hit her in the knees!
Tip of the Iceberg-June
Al and Tipper Gore separate!  What is going on down there in Capitol Hill? Lord, let the Obamas stay together! Jesus!
End of the Dumbest War-August
Thank you President Obama!  Can someone tell me why we were over there again?  And don't you come with that weapons of mass destruction and protecting our way of life garb either!  That war American funded aided in this enormous deficit we have now!

and I'll end with....

Eddie and Sons-September
Sex allegations were filed against Eddie Long by young men who were once close to this bishop.  Eddie Long denied the allegations and vowed to fight!  His quote of he feeling like David against Goliath spread like wildfire amongst media outlets...however, now he's considering settling out of court!  I'm guilty of thinking the good bishop would fund this settlement via church funds, however, the church filed a conjunction to protect its funds.  Ugh, ugly!  But some way some how, I have a feeling New Birth will foot the bill! I'm just saying!

And with each year, there's a list of those whose journeys end...

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
BARBARA BILLINGSLEY-Leave it to Beaver
DENNIS HOPPER
DOROTHY HEIGHTS
GARY COLEMAN
LENA HORNE
MANUTE BOL
MERTON OLESON-Little House On The Prairie
