Old School Blogging: *High Fives*

I had so much fun reading Old School Blogging posts last month that I participated with Alphabet Soup.  I decided to take the prompt for this month and link up with Alison and Elaine.


Oh, I’m still turnt up from the Centennial weekend, so um yeah…my pin for today is totally a     S/O to my 5 (who happened to be my travel buddy for the weekend), Drama of SPR 01, Eta Chapter, FVSU, 28 Forces of RAPture, DST…..ok 🙂 If you didn’t get all that, no worries …Recap coming soon and it’ll all make sense.



Five Things I Have A Passion For

  1. BODYCOMBAT/Fitness/Sports, Healthcare, Making Money, Learning New Things (There are a few others, but these I talk about on the blog sometimes)
  2. Mentoring girls &  Fellowship with Family & Friends (Family Reunions, Sorority Reunions, Girls Night Out, Date night, etc.)
  3. Recycling & Sunday School
  4. Styles and Shopping – thus the F2BD series
  5. TV, Books, Movies, Blogging, & Music – Sorry, fine arts just never tickled my fancy (ditched ballet, tap, jazz, piano lessons, playing in the band, slept through all the cultural events as a child, I don’t do much politics as an adult…I really don’t care what anybody thinks about this either).  Don’t worry, I’ll still expose my own children 😉 !



I am a very passionate person, AYEEEE! 🙂 I tried to group them, I just have so many interest.


Five Things I’d Like to Do Before I Die


  1. Publish a book (working on this)
  2. Be featured in Black Enterprise (my favorite magazine hands down)
  3. Take my trip to London, Paris, & Amsterdam
  4. Play on a TV gameshow
  5. Make a workout DVD (I have this all planned out in my head actually)

  1. I was laughing at your passions (not because they were funny) because you have so many and you sure grouped a bunch of them with each # :).

    I’ve always wanted to be on Family Feud. I haven’t read Black Enterprise since my college days. I bet you get all kinds of motivation and inspiration from it. You look awesome on the cover 🙂 I do read Shape and Kokoa Mags.

    Love Lean on me. Watched it and Boyz N the Hood a bunch of times, however, not within the last few years.
    I’m high fiving you on your travel places. Would love to go to Amsterdam and Tahiti. I’d also like to visit San Francisco too.

    Can’t wait to hear about your Centennial trip. Blessing!

    • My mother keeps telling my sister to get us on Family Fued. She records that game show and watches it whenever there are no soap Y&R and Bold and the Beautiful episodes to catch up on.

      I have to admit…I was kinda thinking Family Feud 🙂 !

      • LOL! *High Five* My girlfriend and her family taped a show a few weeks ago. Can’t wait for it to air. You all would make for a good show…I’m thinking especially with your dad. He seems funny 🙂

  2. Awe, my #22, you’re the best! Thank you for the s/o. I really enjoyed being your travel buddy. I will never forget this trip…one of the best! We laughed a lot and got to catch up. Truly memorable!

  3. How cool! I like this post. As I’ve mentioned before, the nosey girl in me loves knowing little details about someone. Reading your movie selection we could totally do a girl’s movie night together. I’m a fan of all of them. I’ve never read Black Enterprise Mag before but you would look great on their cover.
    I was cracking up over your list of 5 things you always say. You need to do a vlog soon so we can hear ya. That way we can imagine the attitude when you say “YES, I’m blogging”.hahaha
    I hope you enjoyed your DC trip. Can’t wait to hear about it. Glad to have you back.

    • We could totally do a girls trip! We have so much in common! Or better yet, go to a blog conference. We must discuss via email!

    • It was so good Alison! Not sure if you read the first one, but this sequel didn’t disappoint. I’ll be here for it. Looking forward to learning a bit more about ya lady!

    • LOL, I can just talk about myself all day long 🙂

      So many authors in this space. I can’t wait to see everyone’s finished product!

  4. Your list of 5 passions cracked me up – yes, I can tell you are a very passionate person!!!
    I can’t wait to read your book! And, I would definitely buy your workout DVD!!!

  5. LOL!! I was going to give you my answers for what I say a lot. Okay now I need to think of answers for all of them 😉 I won’t list that I’ve always wanted to be on Wheel of Fortune because I’d be scared to death. But I’m good at it sitting on the sofa and I have the nerve to say, “DUH” to contestants that didn’t see something I thought was plain as day. I may have also been mean and called them a dumb something or ‘nother 😉
    Kenya G. Johnson recently posted…Who’s On First?My Profile

  6. Oh I’m so glad you did this! I just love it. “Girl stop” is the best saying ever. Promise me if we ever meet at a blogging convention, you’ll say it to me. I sincerely think you’re going to do the five things before you die. All of them. Without a doubt.

    P.S. Sister Act 2 is one of my favorites too. I can’t get enough.

  7. Hi Joi,
    this is an awesome post, I may have to borrow this one! So, I love the movie “Adventures in Babysitting” as well, haven’t seen it in long time though. I saw that traveling to San Fran is on your list, I went for the first time back in April of this year, wonderful city! And yes, I can clearly see you on the cover of Black Enterprise, girl don’t stop!!

    • Thanks Tiffany! I am excited about San Francisco. I am surprised that people share my affection for Adventures and Babysitting. I totally fell in love with that movie as a child!

  8. Thanks for tagging me in this post. I was waiting for someone to do it! Wrote mine today. Paris is definitely on my list to travel to. I’ve already been to Hawaii and the Dominican Republic. I enjoy Black Enterprise too (like your cover) and Boyz N The Hood is one of my favorite movies (cry every time). I’m with you, Hope, and Britton on doing Family Feud. Maybe we should team up as bloggers and go on there LOL!
    Kimberly H. Smith recently posted…Let’s Kick It Old School!My Profile

    • That would be so amazing! We should get to work on that ASAP!

      When Ricky’s mom is screaming in that living room…#DONE!!!!

  9. Loved your post! I wouldn’t say I am a mentor but I feel really passionate about The Fresh Air Fund and I hope our family makes a difference in the life of the little girl who comes to stay with us every summer. And I love Lean on Me!! Such an awesome movie!!
    Michelle recently posted…Best Buds {Wordless Wednesday}My Profile

    • I’m positive it does! Mentoring is a huge part of my life. I love going to the youth detention center, they are MUCH more appreciative and attentive in that environment.

  10. I could have gone on and on with the movies too! It was hard to pick just 5! Lol! I also want to visit Barcelona…I put Madrid on my list but truth is I would love to spend the summer traveling all over Spain! I think my “Yes” is usually very attitudnal as well! Ha!

    Great list!
    Tracie recently posted…Self DiscoveryMy Profile

    • Hi Tracie! I don’t like traveling for very long. My over seas trip will be a challenge but an entire summer, wow! I’d have to have all the peeps with me, lol! Thanks for visiting!


  11. My favorite old movies are: Pretty woman, Lean On Me, and A Time To Kill. I can watch them over and over. I share several of your passions. I love mentoring to the girls. I share your travel plans. Please get our family on Family Feud!!! You could blog about that for a long time. I love that game show and I can answer almost all of the questions correctly. Also, I would love to see you on the front cover of a fitness magazine or any magazine. You picture would make an awesome front cover. A trip to Europe is on my very near future plans.

    • Oh, I never thought of it for a honeymoon but I have heard it is quite the quaint little place to visit. I can see that!
