Started from the bottom now your here.

So, I been in community college for quick a while now this post is for all new college student getting ready to go to a four or community college or want to take break. There are a number of things that screwed me up during high school and that was not taking a Math and English course during my senior year. Most high school want you to take a break since it's senior year but this could cause some student to forget what they have learned, especially if  your poor at doing academic work. But if your looking to relax your senior year I suggest you go to a tutoring service to bone up on your English and math before taking the entrances exams to any college that accepts you, even the community colleges. This is really helpful if your (un)decided on your major. This test is what held me and many other back an extra 4 years. I would advise most students to go to a community college since it's cheaper and you can take higher division classes plus you can take a class over at least two more time. So, here are some suggestion to help you succeed through college:

1) Study for your entrance exams.
Math you want to place in Statistic/ Inter. Algebra /Precalculus depending on your major and English you want to place into English 1 then all you just need to take English 2 or Debate course for critical thinking requirement. If you score in higher division you can easily go on to focusing on major or picking one.

2) Now, their are three things that required to take depending on your state requirements which are
   3 social sciences, natural sciences plus one with a lab, 3 arts and/or humanities, and lastly your    elective classes.

3) Lastly, get internship and join a club of your interest or major, this is great on your resume especially for those art/science/tech students.

I remember in high school every time we had to go see are grades especially during senior year we had to have 120 units to graduate. this to is also sort of true of college. Here is the break down:
  • Freshman 0-29 units
  • Junior 30-59 units
  • Sophomore  60-89 units (AA degree is now available plus transfer)(60 units or more most be transferable to any university i.e. USC, UCLA, CALS)
  • Senior 90-124+

Also depending on your major and whether or not your in honors classes you may be required to do a 40-60 page thesis to graduate from college and there is a class that specifies for your senior thesis.

Tip: I found going to two community colleges really helps if  your undecided because once max out 90 credits at one college you won't be able receive financial aid and you would have reapply like my did boyfriend for example.

Oh, also I found out why college are making students pay more and even foreigner students even more. It is because the government was slowly taking funds for colleges and even public schools and you probably know why cough cough W . . .A . . .R and O . . .I . . .L. Also blame the lobbyist and self interest groups and we the people are paying more T . . .A . . .X. . .S  because of it too. So that is why we use to pay $10-11 a unit but are now paying about $50 a unit and a lot students got turn away. And if your college didn't have foreign student program more class cuts for you than colleges that have the program, the foreign student now pay 3x more than the average student and this applies to out of state students as well. I'm going to let that sink in for those shocked by this but it's not so shocking. This even got worst when the housing bubble popped and wall street got no slaps on wrist. Capitalism is great but humans make knowing mistakes and are more greedy these days. It like an episode of Pinky and Brain trying rule world but instead failing they win every time. These are things that make me want to leave America and go live in S. Korea or Europe. Everything in this country is lacking because to many people have egos and economy making us money hungry and to many people like it that way "because if I can't have it you sure can't have it either"that's Democratic capitalism for you. I wish the government would bankrupt because elite people and even groups do that almost every two years and they don't get a slapped on wrist for it they get to start a new but I guess we have to much pride in trying to be #1 or first all the time. Sorry for the rant, when it comes issues about education and health I get all railed up.

Start from the Basics

Hey Guys,

So, have you ever thought about what kind style you wanted or got overwhelmed at the store because you wanted buy almost everything in it. Well don't stress because I have as well when I first started making money for myself but with the  help of the Internet and my mom's awesome style I acquired my inspiration to do this post. Well starts with basic...Do even know what they are? Well they consist of:

  • A good Bra 
  • Leggings & Tights
  • undergarments(pajamas, panties, even a white beater)
  • Tank Top
  • Active Wear (spandex short/pants, tank, and sport bra)

If you own at least three out six of things which I hope you do lol your on right track to create a style of your own. But there are also clothing trends that never go out of style as well. But first I want to talk about Color and Texture because I find that this sort of topic of clothing is most important and any art form you decide take on in school; all about the supporting details. During the renaissance also called the blue period the use of primary colors (pantone): True Blues (ultramarine), Reds (permanent rose), and Yellows (Cadmium) and tint (white zinc) and tones (black; Manganese dioxide)  to created vivid and striking paintings plus these colors look good on almost everyone. Neon; pink, red, orange, and blue colors and beige are also great colors too, when picking out clothes and even accessories.

My haircare Routine

Hey Guys,

I' m so happy and tired at same time that finish this jam pack week of school and I'm ready for the weekend. Anyways I wanted talk about hair well, right now I have my hair in a weave and in just a month my hair grown which seems to always happen when I get one. My hair been itching up a storm so today after my last class I going to wash it since all the oil I use to sooth my scalp has made my weave hair oily. I know some girls just co-wash their weaves or natural hair but I tend to treat it like my own hair; comb, deep condition if need be, shampoo, condition, dry, and apply heat.So here are the products I use:
First, I use a protein condition;Ion or Aphogee; which helps stop hair loss and promotes hair growth but since my hair is really thick I suggest you use these shampoos once or twice month since the protein can dry out your hair but if you have thin hair this really great for you.
 Then I use Kracie's Ichikami shampoo and conditioner which I have to say is my favorite set of all time. I had been searching for a shampoo that didn't use sulfates(sulfate lauryl) which is high fructose corn syurp of shampoo ingredients; it also in most toothpastes and soaps these days. In industry standard of the chemical is consider a Dioxane exposure to body can cause damage to the nervous system, liver, kidneys, and even cause death.Moderate exposure could cause temporary immobilize or possible leave injury. And when temperature are added to mix the chemical is easily changed. Dioxane has affected groundwater supplies in several areas since the chemical does not bind the soil but soluble to water. But in the state California under law it is classified to cause cancer. Anyways, I love Ichikami it's rich and lathers nicely, leaving my hair soft and clean with use of floral and herbal essences with rice bran.
 Before I found Ichikami, I was using Giovanni smooth as silk shampoo and conditioner which is also sulfate free line. It does stop frizz a little and smells nice. You can find this product at TJ-Max or certain health food stores and some drugstores. Also, it's safe enough to use the condition if you need to shaving your legs. Anyway, if I didn't have either of these shampoos and condioners I would go buy the Tresmme thermal creations shampoo and conditioner now called Thermal Recovery which was taken off the shelves a few months after it's debut. You can only find it online and outside the states which is a bummer because I tired a sample of it and was amazing.

 Oh I gave my Tsubaki shampoo and conditioner to my boyfriend; he said it reminded him of another shampoo plus it wasn't doing it for me anymore. I was noticing my hair would get dirty faster and scent would fade.

For weeks of not washing my hair due to time, weaves and working out or school. I like to use Paul Mitchell's Clarifying shampoo. I also use the Super Smoothing line (Gel and serum)

Usually before I wash my hair I like to deep condition it so, I mix both my Tsubaki Damage Care with Macadamia oil.

 When I'm not in weaves or braids, I use mostly Dr. Miracles Curl line (moisturize and frizz control) and the newly formulated Hot Gro. I usually style my hair with these and/or Vonte and if my hair really dry I use Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner which adds a nice shine to my hair.
