hmm...i have blogged about this before...Im mixed race. I'm Kenyan...thats who I am! I do not take it well when im called a mulatto, yellow and all the other derrogatory terms. Many people think that I'm indian...i dont blame them...i may look a little indian. I confess, sometimes i like people not knowing where i come from. I thought i was in one of those moments the other day when I met some guy from congo. He was introduced to me, we said hi, and he went on to ask where i was from..."india or pakistan"...he passed judgment and already concluded that I must be from one of them! So just to go along with it for a laugh, i replied, actually, I'm from Nepal (totally off point...i really want to go to Nepal at some point in my life). Anyway, he believed me up until a few days ago when a mutual friend told him that i was from today, he was in the library and told me that he found out i was i replied, yes, but you had made your conclusions, so i just went along...he then went on to say that yes, when a black person collaborates with a white person, they produce a pakistani!!!....ok, first off, again he jumped to his own ignorant mis-informed conclusions. He has no idea where my mother or my father is from. He said it in a very derrogatory way that i really didnt take to kindly. Goodness the ignorance that fills the world we live in!!

i was tagged!!!

Im not too much of a movie fanatic, although i do enjoy a good flick most days, so i was tagged by nick, here goes...

1. Total number of films I own on dvd/video:
...uhm....i dont really know...apart from classics, i dont really see the need for me to keep movies after iv watched maybe 6!...yes nick....minus your zero!!

2. The last film I bought:
I think that was save the last of my favorites...

3.The last film I watched:
collateral....jamie is the bestest, badest and greatest

4.Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me:
...sound of music, sarafina, mary poppins, lord of the rings, braveheart

5. Tag five people and have them put this in their journal:
since im computer illiterate and just know how to put in a post and sometimes a loose pic, i confess...i have no clue how to tag people, so if any of the following people read this,...consider yourself tagged....
mamajunkyard, thinkers room, au lait, kymbrrr and nehanda dreams...

This is the first time that i can say i miss italy. I admit, i hated it while i was there. But i miss the culture, the food and the ice cream. most of all i miss italy in the night. the picture below is at prato della valle. Its apparently the biggest square in europe...its gorgeous in the night. Its nice to know that i can always go back to italia..

ok, i need some help people...i know my fellow bloggers are really smart people....stop blushing all of u. iv got an oral exam coming up and i need some contributions to what iv my question is....

Business had been good for the past year, and barry builder had taken more jobs than ever, without an increase in employees. This led to excellent profits for barry, but also to long hours and a feeling that he was bouncing from job to job. A week ago, new buyers walked through the door. They were nice people who had made a lot of money last, and were willing to pay whatever it took to build their dream home. Barry couldn’t say no. Normally Barry would have been thrilled to take on clients like the Johnstons, but the thought of this project filled him with dread. He already felt like an absentee husband and father, and all his superintedents were maxed out. In addition, he didn’t know where he would find another framing crew.
Plus, not all his clients were nice folks like the Johnstons. The Helgards were pure torture. They never made decisions on time, changed them as soon as they were made, and became hysterical when any little thing went wrong. Barry was having a hard time sleeping at night and could hardly drag himself out of bed in the morning. He felt he needed to get away – not for a few days or a week, but for a month or even a year. He had always thought that building houses was fun, but it wasn’t fun anymore.

SOLUTION: There is no simple solution to builder burnout. As burnout progresses, barry will becomeless and less effective, which will exacerbate theproblem. And not only is Barry burnt out, his superintedents likely are burnt out as well.
What would you do?

so,....thats what i have to talk about! help somebody, anybody, all you clever people out there who need something new to think about....?

ouch i went to the gym yesterday...aparently i am not fit at all! OMG!!! My thighs feel like they are on fire! I've never done so many squats in my life. Then this morning, I burnt myself with the oven....i actually cooked myself. it hurts like you would never imagine. ouch!!! But yesterday was a really pretty day. the sun was out, and appart from the wind being wow cold, it was really nice. There are some really nice people here. So as much as its daunting being in a foreign place, the people make it easier. so im counting my blessings. anyway, have to study for some entrance i best be leaving and stop derailing myself with my blog, (which i know i have been ignoring).
