I'm probably one of the few people that jumps or holds my breath during horror movies and I've never watched one by myself. I like the fantasy/horror genre, especially for writing ideas, but I've yet to see a horror movie in theaters until "Wish Upon" came. I think this might be the first scary movie I check out. Would you watch it? Let me know what you think.
Books go into so much more detail than the movies they're based on, but Leo DiCaprio's portrayal of Jordan Belfort based on The Wolf of Wall Street was great. In the movie, Leo DiCaprio saves his friend from choking to death. As a viewer, you can tell he struggles with the decision to save him. In the novel, Jordan Belfort struggles with the same decision, but the book goes into detail as to why he struggles. Leo did his thing, though! I think it's great when a film gets a book right. Still, it's good to read the book for more insight. What are some good movies you've seen based on books?
I bought a business laptop less than two weeks ago. Imagine my shock to come home to a non-working laptop. I decided to take it to Geek Squad, since it was still under warranty. At my appointment, the tech explained that I should use the power off function instead of sleep mode if the computer isn't in use for a while. I learned leaving your laptop in sleep mode can cause it not to update properly and get stuck. That's the short version, but still informative. Fortunately, my laptop was fine, too. Plus, my files were on the cloud. If you have a laptop, turn it off after use to avoid the issue I had.

I love my HBCU! I may not have the most memorabilia from Bowie State University, but I still have my folder when I came for orientation my junior year. When I transferred, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I gained an education and friends for a lifetime. That's why I had to get a booth at the HBCU College-bound Experience 2017. I'm really looking forward to the event. See what Hoops & Heels Inc. is up to in the community and register for the experience by clicking the flyer below.
I had so much fun at the Teens Talk: Youth and Teen Summit, talking about issues with the youth and solutions. It was nice to meet all the young ladies, especially Amirah. I raffled my book as a prize, and she won it! Being on the guest panel with Miss Teen Maryland United States, Valencia Clipper-Davis, and others was enlightening. I thank Glam Dolls for hosting and for providing their platform. We referred to each other as queens, so the motto was #fixyourcrown :) Check the links below to see how these groups and women make a difference.
