Will Smith Shares His Wisdom!

I do admire Will Smith as he has done remarkably well with his career. I found this video inspiring as it confirmed his success is a result of hard work and dedication, I need more of his work ethic! The video proves that WE can do anything that we set our mind too. However success does not come over night and we must continue to better our crafts. As Will said we all have talents but talent alone is not enough! If you want something go get it- REAL TALK!

So curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to see what Chris Brown's latest offering had to say (don't lynch me).....and it's actually very good. I wouldn't consider myself a Chris Brown stan but this album is consistent track after track after track. It's a nice mix of up tempo tracks and ballads and the production is on point. I was surprised at how I listened to the whole album without skipping a track, that's always a good sign. Chris knows what formula works for him and he's stuck to it and I’m sure his loyal fans will be happy with their purchase. I'm not sure how well this album will sell....time will tell.

Stand out tracks are Transform Ya, Crawl, So Cold, What I Do (should be the next single), Famous Girl, Wait and Fallin Down.

Death At A Funeral Remake.

I love anything that’s got silly related to it and this looks quite funny from the trailer. I do love slapstick humour….I’m a sucker for it. This film is a re-make of the British Comedy Death At A Funeral. I’ve read the plot and I will definitely be going to watch this. It’s been injected with an all star black cast including Danny Glover, Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence to name a few. It’s not due for release until June 2010 mind you so you‘ll have to make do with the trailer until then.

Week 8 Of My Journey Getting To New York.

This week I have focused my attention to job hunting. I have hollered at a few media companies in relation to doing some online news, researching, TV bits and bobs. Unfortunately they don’t have anything going at the moment or they have shut up shop. I even hollered at some folks in my home town of Birmingham but to no avail. I’m trying to find ways of making some serious money. Whilst I don’t mind working in retail, I know there are other jobs I could do that would bring in a larger amount of money in the same amount of time. I’m a bit stuck at the moment; I’m going to have to pray for some guidance and inspiration. There are always ways to make money you just have to be creative and think outside the box. I don’t mind working hard but I just need to do something new hmmm.

I’ve been doing some thinking and have decided to cut down my trip from 3 months to 6 weeks. Why?!?!? Well to find a job that pays me in NYC is going to be a challenge but not impossible, this way I can afford to do some work for free. I can easily make contacts and sell myself in 6 weeks I don’t need 3 months to do that. 6 weeks will give me more of an incentive to live each day to the maximum and not procrastinate. I know how I function the longer I have to do things the more I dilly dally. I think I only wanted to stay for 3 months so that I could be there as long as possible as I dread the coming home feeling (I remember how I felt last year). Plus I really don’t want to rent out my flat for 3 months it’s too much hassle (interview process/vetting some one) and most tenants rent for a minimum of 6 months. This way I can afford to pay 6 weeks rent without breaking the bank and I won’t mind my flat being empty for that space of time. This also means I have less money to save and overall it should work out better. I did 5 weeks last year and I didn’t take advantage of the time so anything over 6 weeks will be fine but nothing less.
