    Oh What
    A Life

    “Oh what a life,
    the life of a teen.
    You’re too young and too ignorant
    to know anything.
    You can’t possibly know what love is.
    You don’t know how it feels.
    Your dreams are too big.
    You don’t know what is real.”
    But I see all the problems.
    I realize life’s hard.
    I love him to death
    and can’t see us apart.
    My dreams may be big
    but I’ll shoot for the stars
    and I’ll always have hope
    and strive to go far.
    “You act without thought,
    don’t consider consequence,
    doing things that seem stupid.
    You lack common sense.

  • Fashion Maven: Packing light, but packing right

    There’s nothing like packing, to get you excited for vacation. Okay, I know it’s not exactly vacation time right now, but we probably all wish it was.
    Even though it’s off-season, so to speak, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared, just in case you may all of a sudden be going on vacation to Hawaii in the dead of October. You know, just in case.  
    When I go on vacation, the thing that stresses me out is the packing. I am definitely an obsessive-compulsive packer. What if I need this, what if I need that? It takes me forever to pack and in the end, I always bring way too many clothes with me. And you know me, I love to shop no matter where I am.

  • Game’s latest effort falls flat

    In 2002, the new face of “Gangsta Rap” was born in the form of Jayceon Terrell Taylor aka The Game.
    Signed by “Aftermath Entertainment” founder and executive producer Dr. Dre in 2003, after acquiring The Game’s mixtape, Game caught many people’s interest. Fueled by drugs and gang violence, Game’s debut album “The Documentary,” debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.
    After altercations with label-mate 50 Cent about who wrote the lyrics for “The Documentary,” Game left Aftermath records.
    After two years of hard work, Game’s most recent studio album “The R.E.D. Album” was released
    Aug. 23.

  • Go ‘Into the Woods’ with LALO

    Once upon a time, in a far off kingdom, there lived a young maiden whose name was Cinderella.
    The poor girl’s mother had died, and her father had taken a woman with two daughters of her own for his new wife. The girl wanted more than anything in the world to go to the King’s Festival.
    But her new stepmother and stepsisters were in no way kind-hearted and did everything in their power to keep poor Cinderella from getting what she wished. To make matters worse, her father wasn’t much help.
