Forum: Going On Hiatus
Hey guys and gals,

I've been swamped with work from both of my jobs and haven't had as much time as I had hoped to be able to make a contribution to the forums. I hope everybody wins and I should hopefully be back toward the end of June or the beginning of August.

I've really enjoyed my run and would have never expected to win 3 awards when I practically just restarted earning. You guys have been a great support system and I really hope to at least come around and post more from time to time.

Forum: What are your Memorial Day plans?
Hi Kayla!
That sounds like an awesome plan! I might have to go bike riding with you if I can find a bike haha.

If it doesn't rain (fingers crossed), I plan on going to Detroit to get on my Dad's boat and eat bbq. We eat bbq right off of the Detroit river. I also plan on hanging out with a friend and watching Taken 3 and playing Just Dance: Greatest Hits.

Who knows what the day may hold though, none of my plans are concrete. I don't usually do anything special on Memorial Day because I don't really have any friends or family who have lost their lives in combat. I typically relax on Memorial Day and attend BBQs.

Forum: What is your hometown "famous" for?
My hometown isn't necessarily famous for anything. So I'll use my birthplace as my hometown since I have deeper roots there.

Detroit is known as Motor City for good reason too. There's the Big Three that have plenty of plants all around MI where cars are born. Unfortunately, Detroit has gained some infamy has being a crime-riddled city but I think there's so much more to Detroit.

Detroit is amazing and we have the Pistons, Tigers, Lions, and Red Wings. There's so much pride in Detroit and there's so many reasons to have it. The city is beautiful from the concrete jungle that it is to all of the suburbs around it. There's famous singers and rappers that have come from the city. Motown originated in Detroit.

Detroit is simply amazing.

Subject: Re: Stereotypes

Forum: Stereotypes
I think some stereotypes can sometimes have a basis of truth as long as it's not completely derogatory.

But that's a battle I'm not willing to fight for. I believe stereotypes influence behavior because people, including me, will go out of their way to prove other people that the stereotypes are wrong.

Have you ever watched Chappelle Show? There's this one skit where Dave Chappelle is on a plane and he's offered chicken or fish in first class. He didn't want to order the chicken out of feeling guilty for being black, but hilarity ensued. There's just not an easy pill to swallow when it comes to stereotypes.

Some stereotypes can have some positivity in it, but they're all just generalities that are true sometimes but false a lot more.

Subject: Re: What are you the "face" of?

Forum: What are you the "face" of?
I would love to be the face of motivational speaking and advice-giving. Mentorship is something that I love to do and it helps me help others in an idealistically tangible way.

Something not so great would probably be being the face of having a junky room. I have not cleaned my apartment in so long and I simply can't help myself to organizing my room.

This was an interesting topic. It definitely reminds me of a time where I was sitting at a meeting and a woman in the STEM industry was talking about having your own brand. As in, what do you actions tell other people that you're all about. I still don't know what characteristics my personality/actions showcase.
