Bye Bye 2011

Image
It's about that time to say, "Bye Bye to 2011". It has been a good year for me seeing my daughter transform from a infant into a toddler. I had the chance to see my daughter's first tooth, first steps , and first words, so even though 2011 is soon to be only a memory, I am grateful for the joys it has brought to me in only 12 short months. 





As I say " Bye Bye to 2011" and look 2012 in the face. I will only hope that it will bring me love, peace, and more chances to be a great mother. Whatever 2012 brings me I will embrace it with open arms and indulge it because it will only last a mere 365 days before it will once again only be memory. 

Today in History

Image
Today is December 31st 2011 and on this day in history in 1879, Thomas Edison demonstrates incandescent light to the public, by lighting up a street in Menlo Park, New Jersey. 


An incandescent light bulb produces light by heating a metal filament wire to a high temperature until it glows.  


Even though other inventors also came up with other versions of incandescent lamps, Thomas Edison's version stood out because of its effective incandescent material , its higher vacuum , and its high resistance. 


During his demonstration in Menlo Park, Edison said, "We will make electricity so cheap, only the rich will burn candles". And now in 2011 we can say his statement was correct. 

New Year's Resolution

Happy TGIF ! Yes it is Friday and for me the weekend begins today, but this is not any ordinary weekend, this weekend will be the start of a new year. This weekend will be 2011 and 2012, which I think is awesome, that all in the matter of one weekend we will experience two different years. 


This is definitely not the weekend to sit around and complain, but it is a great time to make changes in your life and if they are no changes to be made, just use this weekend and start of the new year to work on your goals.


Goals are a big part of beginning the new year, even though many people may call these goals, "New Year's Resolutions" , do not let the difference fool you. Many "New Year's Resolutions " do not last very long. People want to make changes in their life but wanting to do something and actually doing it are two completely different stories. 


This year take control of your "New Year's Resolutions" and turn them into goals that will better you…

Asian Teen Covers "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele

I personally never heard a person of Asian decent sing, but this girl right here killed it. She is only 14 years old covering, "Rolling in the deep" by Adele and I have to say she did an awesome job. I also think she should get a record deal in the U.S. because she sounds great and we do not have any Asian singers in the industry right now. But I guess we have to wait and see what happens.

Keep a Positive Outlook

Image
Many people say everything in a person's life happens for a reason and I do believe that statement myself. So when something happens in my life that makes me upset, I just look at it as something good will be coming soon, so the negative had to be pushed out of my life first. "When the storm is over, the sun will shine". All that I am saying is keep a positive outlook on life.
