First, I was dying to finish high school and start college...
And then I was dying to finish college and start work...
Then I was dying to marry and have children...
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough so I could go back to work...
But then I was dying to retire...
And now I am dying…
And suddenly I realized I forgot to live...

Appreciate your current situation and enjoy each day.

To make money we lose our health,
And then to restore our health we lose our money..
We live as if we are never going to die,
And we die as if we never lived….

Life is very short, so break your silly ego, forgive quickly, believe slowly,
love truly, laugh loudly & never avoid anything that makes you smile.

"Bet you just can't stop at one..."

I'm kind of addicted to many of the game applications on Facebook. Honestly? You can replace "kind of" with "very". LOL

It's actually not my fault! It started with Mafia Wars, but all of my friends were also playing Farmville and needed more people to join to get more points and rewards. After joining Farmville, I added Cafe World, then Make A Baby, followed by Yoville, Pet Pupz, Family Feud, Treasure Isle, My Tribe, Uno, and finally The Price Is Right. These applications are like gum: the more you try to peel them out of your life, the more stuck you get. Hmmm maybe it's more like glue.... either way, My name is MღRLz and I'm a Facebook application addict. :help:

The reason for this post is because of my recent win on Family Feud, not the real live game, but the Facebook application.

"Congratulations! You won the +500 Points award!
You also won a Over 200 In Fast Money Alone award, a Top Fast Money Answers award, and a Top Game Answers award!! Utterly Amazing!"

If they gave out real awards, I would have definitely won today! No competition! I know I'm such a dweeb! I know, I know!!!!!!! :afro:

Anyway, I managed to get 652 points by myself, then 313 on the Fast Money Round. Is that a new record?
It should be!

Let me break it down for you: During the Fast Money round, you have to answer 5 questions, within 20 seconds. In order for me to get 300+ points, it means that not only did I get every question right, but I also got the #1 answer all 5 times!!! Did your jaw just drop? Because I know mine did!

In any case, I am so proud of myself for achieving this "utterly amazing" score. I'm so awesome! Now bow down to the Family Feud Queen! *pats back*

*** Update: After months *cough* or years *cough* of being addicted,
I no longer play Yoville, Mafia Wars, Pet Pupz, and My Tribe. I never liked Uno.

Hair Update - 10/11/10

It's been a while since I've discussed anything hair related, but I had a great breakthrough today. My signature style, since becoming natural, has always been twists; it's easy, it protects the ends of my hair from knots, and I can do it while watching a movie. What more can you ask for? Anywho, today my twists are poppin! LOL

Ladies, remember that sense of awe you would feel as a child, while admiring your newly braided or twisted hair in the mirror? Whether there were small beads or rubber bands at the end, the feeling of bliss during the movement of your hair from side to side? Well today, I experienced that same joyous shake that I would experience after my mom hooked my hair up.

I felt like a kid again.

Why can't life always be that simple? *sigh*

Anyway, it's been 16 months, 1 week, and 4 days since my BC ( ). Even though I don't blog about it much, I'm still very obsessed with my hair. I'm still head over heels in love with the hair GOD has bless me with. (Yes, this is one of my good days. Catch me on a bad one and I'll deny ever uttering that statement! LOL)

My friends on BBM, and those who look through photos on my phone, either make fun of me and "my obsession" -- their words, not mine lol --, or roll their eyes while muttering, "So you're still doing the natural thing?!" ... um insert my look of disgust, followed by a *side eye*. LOL

I'll try to have recent pics up later this week.

Psst! Any of you guys still there? Did you miss me? Let me know!

GOD's Promises

Speak God's promises to you out loud. Say...

Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.

No weapon formed against me will prosper.

I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.

God has not brought me this far to let me down now.

God is my Avenger.

The weapons of my warfare are not carnal but MIGHTY.

To him who believes ALL things are possible and I am a believer.

The lions will not devour me.

In the furnace, the fire will not burn me. My clothes will not even smell of the smoke.

My shield of FAITH will quench all the fiery darts of the enemy.

When the battle is over I will be standing because I am on the Lord's side.

I submit to God and resist the devil. The devil must flee.

This is the victory that has overcome the world, my faith.
