Introduction to the instructor (Econ. 210 assignment)
I am whatever I choose to be, I love doing things that can help me express my emotions, since most of the time people tell me they cannot tell how I feel through my facial expressions or body language. Expressing myself in various forms of art helps me communicate with others in a way I cannot physically do. So I consider myself being a graphic designer, photographer, producer, and a poet in order to mentally and emotionally connect with people. One thing that few people know about me is that I am a deep thinker. I frequently blog about topics that seem to be relevant in our everyday lives such as life and love, I opinionate these topics to stimulate the minds of the readers and they are often able to relate or they may have a different opinion.
One of my latest blog entries is about our society, and which was inspired after watching a movie directed by John Singleton named “Higher Learning”. Although it took place at Columbus University in 1995, the message that the movie gives to the viewer sadly still relates to our lives today, no matter where you live, what background you belong to, what religion you practice, or what culture you follow. The message that the movie give to the viewer is about how our society as a whole, as in across the world is corrupt. Higher Learning uses the example of racism and implies that life is nothing but a game of chess. We are all ponds, we are all small and seem to be useless but we are capable of obtaining a higher status in society. Meanwhile the “the man” is the more important pieces to the game; they have more power and are able to determine the end of a game. Meaning we don’t live how we want to live, we live how the “the man” want us to live. You want proof? Here’s an example; Money. Money rules the world. Now how can small pieces of colored paper rule the world you may ask, well we all need money to survive, you need money for food, for shelter, for clothing, basically for the essentials you need to survive and more. But why is it that we need Money to obtain those essentials that we need to survive? Why can’t everyone just receive those essentials? The reason is because that is the way the “the man” want us to live. Even though today racism is weaker physically, it is stronger mentally, and even though “slavery” is over, we are all still slaves. Slaves to society, our minds, bodies, and souls are enslaved, and the sooner you realize it, the sooner you’ll make your move as a pond to escape the game of the life that our society has planned for us to live.
Another recent entry is about my love life. Someone asked me why am I single? So I decided to answer their question with an entire post saying “I believe I’m single because I choose to be single. I’m very picky when it comes to whom I choose to be in a relationship with. I mean, I wouldn’t say that I have high standards; I would consider them to be qualifications. As in things that I want in a girl, and if you don’t have them I’m not into you. Like I love women that have ambition, who’s driven to succeed, I love women with a sense of style, like if were walking somewhere together I want people to say to themselves “they look like they should be together”, and that’s straight off of the way we dress. I love women with great taste in music, so if I sing a line from a song, I expect you to know the next line. Basically I’m into personality, and if you don’t have that were not going anywhere, point blank. The girls anyone would typically see me go for are the fly girls, girls that wear high heels and blazers to class, but has a mean Jordan collection. Or a girl with incredible knowledge about something that I’m passionate about, like Music, Fashion, or Basketball. So to sum this all up, I’m single because I have yet to find a female that meets my qualifications.”
I blog in order to grasp my thoughts, emotions, dreams and aspirations. My dream is to become the CEO of my own company, and majoring in Business management/Marketing will provide me with the tools needed for me to obtain my dream. Becoming a Business management/Marketing major here at Mercy College has been the wisest decision I have ever made to invest in my future. I plan on owning a small clothing business, and then with great advertisement eventually expand my small business into a full blown franchise. I’ve been told running a business is all about taking great risks for even greater rewards, and every day I become more ambitious to do what I have to do in order to get that great reward.
