Not to be confused
Start,at first, right now
This is where it will all happen
Somewhere, to someone, perhaps for you
The question is, do you run away or run to
The future, your life, from your past, then reach for the sky
Whatever your answer think fast then go
Only you can answer the questions to life’s unknown

It can be embarrassing to walk around at any age to walk around with acne. I have suffered from acne so bad in my teen I was once asked by a classmate did I have chickenpox. People that was very embarrassing. If you do not have acne you do not know how it feels to have people judge you and talk about you to your face.
I have tried so many acne medications and home remedies and none of them seem to work. And believe me, there is always someone giving you advice even though they have never suffered from acne. I have had some people tell me that the reason my skin breaks out so much is because I put all this stuff on it. Keep in mind this is said as they are piling tons of make up on their face( something I am/is still scared to do).
This soap works for me. It is not that expensive. I think it cost me $6. I love it. I use it twice a day. No this is not a sponsored post. I saw a post the other day advising people on great ways to help clear acne. I know that struggle. It can be devastating. Parents if you have a child that has acne try this. If not please take your child to the dermatologist, please. It could be life changing. And you don’t know not understand if you have never had to live with acne. And people always seem to blame the acne sufferers for their acne. Trust me if we knew what made our face break out we would have been cured our own acne.
Ok I’m done with my advice,take it or leave it.

People I have not been using wordpress for that long, and I keep getting emails from them encouraging me to upgrade to business. I know that wordpress is a business and that they are just trying to make money. I get that.What I want to know do any of you regret starting off with a business plan. I would like some honest input here.

There was a big hullabaloo a couple of days ago when Beyonce gave Nicole Curran the side eye and shade shoulder push back. This happened when Nicole appeared to be talking to Jay-Z to long.
At first glance and thought it seemed it seemed like the Twitter world had read to much into the look. Then I thought about it. Ladies know if you have a man with wondering eyes and he has already cheated on you, no matter how much you say the relationship is stronger. It is not. Ask Wendy Williams
Beyonce knows her husband is easily probably tempted and feels the need to bed anything he thinks he should have. This is a man that wants for nothing. Yet his woman,as beautiful as she is,cannot afford a peace of mind. He did that to her.
Women are always told that men will love them because they are beautiful. I’ve noticed men are always looking for a more beautiful woman. They always think they can do better. Nevermind the fact that most women would not look at Jay-Z twice save for his money. He knows this too.Now he is a billionaire Beyonce will write more angry music. These will be her attempt to show him what he has, that she is amazing,and to save face to the women that listen to her music.She will do all this and he will still not realize how amazing she is.
It makes me think of that Seinfeld episode where Elaine Benes make men prove them sponge worthy. Perhaps we should make a man prove he is sponge worthy. And not the other way around. Just a thought.
To all the Beyonces out there, I know it is hard but try not to let a boy still your joy.

Walking down on Bourbon Street
I heard the voice of a street peddler
Made my heart weep
I could not take another step
Without giving him compensation
For the tears I had wept
I searched in my pockets for any coin
or dollars with no such luck
Truthfully I felt like money
simply not enough
So this poem,though not much
is dedicated to you
Thank you street peddler for
singing a song so true.

I will probably make a lot of people mad and you know what I don’t care. I need to tell my truth. I was once in the military and while I was serving I was injured. It was a hip injury. While I sustained other injuries while in the military this one would come back and haunt me.
I’ve mentioned in past blogs how I was sometimes treated as a female in the military always having to prove I belonged there. It is really a small difference working in the civilian world. Society does not tell you, that they hate for a woman to become pregnant if she works. They don’t tell you, how a woman will wait to the very last minute to tell her employer that she is pregnant because she knows there is a strong chance she might not get the raise,or the promotion, or perhaps even get hired.
What they tell you is,you must have this baby. Because in societies mind only promiscuous women get pregnant and need an abortion. That is far from the truth. As I mentioned before I was once in the military (security forces) and I sustained a hip injury. Fast forward 10 years and for the first time ever I am pregnant. I am excited. But that excitement did not last. Despite having a degree and military experience I could not find a great job, but I did have a job as a cashier at a warehouse.
We were required to lift heavy bulky items, there were no exceptions if you where pregnant. The problems first started when I was about 3 months pregnant and my body started really changing to accommodate the baby. The change created so much pain in my hip I could not stand longer than 10 minutes at a time. I was forced on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy. My hospital filed the wrong codes therefore the insurance company did not want to pay the hospital. This in turn made my Dr not want to fill out my paperwork so I could get short term disability at work.
This went on for about 4 months. I was spending all my savings. I’m stressing out which I don’t need to do because I am already high risk pregnancy . Even after explaining what happened it took another month to finally “fix” the error. I never wanted to go through that again. Once my baby came I immediately had a tubal ligation which failed 3 years later. And no my insurance company did not want to cover the pregnancy because they were aware that I had had a tubal ligation and they thought this was some form of insurance fraud. Yes I did have that baby. I was placed on bed rest with her as well. And yes if you are wondering I do love my little girl. The point of my story is this. All forms of birth control does not work. I had to jump through hoops when it came to my insurance when it came to me getting a tubal ligation. You see it is considered an elective surgery. I did not know that at the time.
I still do not work now. My hip did not go back to the way it was. If I sit the wrong way, lay the wrong way, stand up to long, I will not be able to walk for a while and if I do the pain is unbearable. But that is neither here nor there. The point of my story is for those people that like to look down on women who accidentally get pregnant. I’m just here to say, It can happen. That does not mean she is promiscuous. And that society treats pregnant women different and not in a good way.
One other quick thing. Most women know of a man that was promoted despite him deserving it simply because he is a man. Its funny how if a man’s wife haves a baby he ask for a raise to take care of his family. He is often given this raise to take care of his family. While on the other hand a women is overlooked, and underpaid because she is now a mother.
Ok I am through with my rambling.

I know I write a lot of poetry, but I am more than just a one dimensional person. I do a lot of things, as I am sure many of you do. Therefore I dare to pause from writing poetry to ask the question above. I mean think about it. When you get out of high school or college you are expected to go out into the real world and just know about money and paying bills and establishing credit. Yet at no time were your ever given classes on real world money or life.
I know some of you are thinking we can learn money management at home. If that’s the case one would argue you can learn about drugs and sex at home. Yet we learn both at school. School teaches us about sex education (abstinence) and Say no to drugs. But not one ,not one class teaches us about trying to make a living off of minimum wage. We are told education is important. What we are not told is that, not everyone needs a college degree. We are not told that college is very expensive and you may not get a job as soon as you get out of college, and you still have to pay for that degree even if you never use it.
Okay I am going on a little more than I wanted to about college and tuition. That is another post later.
My question to you is : Do you think financial management should be required in high school?
