Graduation: I am a College Graduate

I never thought about going to college it was something I thought smart people did with that being said it was a long journey for but, I was determined to finish. That wasn’t to insult me own intelligence but, I was an average student I did just enough to get by. I didn’t have anyone pushing me to be a wiz kid. (LOL) I just saw myself as an okay student. Then my senior year I deiced to test myself and see what I really just average on did I need to apply myself more. Well at the end of that experience I mad the A & B honor roll so that was my motivation to attempt high education.

At the age of 17 after that experience I became a bright eyed young lady and felt that I could accomplish anything so I went to a good university. I had a dream of becoming a psychologist. My goal was to study psychology so I could cure all the nuts in my family. (LOL Just Kidding) I starting doing extremely well and then I let people get into my head. Then they tiny bit of confidence I had to believe in myself with down to zero so I began to question myself and my abilities.

So I began to switch major change schools and I found myself 5 years in the game of going and quiting and still not close to acheving my dream of becoming a college graduate.

Then I came to a point in my life where I put on my big girl britches and said I will do it and I can do it. I took on a second job to pay off my previous balances it took me a year and I felt like I was still getting no where.

After that anther blow came and the school told me I didn’t qualified for financial aide. It was no way I could afford tuition and the other basic necessities of life.

However, I did not let that stop me I enrolled anyway. The day before my payment was due I called my former employer and told them about my situation and asked if I could come back to work for them. My old boss said they went out bussiness and sorry they couldn’t help me. I was devastated and I felt like I could crawl under a rock. The school said that could give extension but, if I didn’t have the money on the deadline they would drop all of my classes.

As I was lying in bed with a damaged ego and discouraged mindset I got a call from the old boss and he said he had check for me to cover all my tuition for all the semesters so I could graduate.

That was a miracle from GOD and now until forever I will be able to say that I am a college graduate. My future children and grandchildren will be able to say that I was a college graduate. #Horray


The Big Island

In 2017 I got experience the beautiful island of Hawaii. I remember flying in and being memorized by the alluring natural landscape and the tropical plants. I had only been praying to see Hawaii for about 5 years but, for some reason I could never get to the place.

One day a friend of mines asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday and I said without hesitation go to Hawaii. Then within that next hour he had me a flight booked and a itinerary . Needless to say that was my best birthday present ever. The most interesting thing that I learned was how the USA acquired Hawaii which was through deceit and manipulation.

Other than that I had a great and enjoyable time I got to see the bottom of the ocean on a submarine. I went hiking in the forest to see a waterfall and got caught in a the rain. I walked through Diamond Park where the bomb was droped over 50 years ago.

It was also interesting to see the native food being on the McDonald’s menu I order a lobster sandwich. I love Hawaii with a passion it my dream to go see it again.


1 Year Anniversary

It’s been officially 1 year since I flew across the globe to be with my online romance who turn out to truly be my soulmate. I remember the day when I booked the flight and the day I got on the plane. It was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life. Flying 7,000 miles landing on two different continents and different zones made me feel like a zombie who wanted sleep.

The whole idea of doing that for someone you only talk to online seems dangerous or adventurous depending on you view it. However from the time our eyes met on the “What’s Up App it was something about this man that intrigue me. The more I talked to him the more he sparked my curiosity. I don’t know it was the whole culture thing my love for the African culture or his style. It could of possibly been the tattoo he got of me on his arm or the song he made for me on Itunes. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on him that I would meet him in real life very soon.

When he gave me the money to book my flight I knew he was hooked on me as well. Most men that I know don’t normally break out cash for ladies they never meet. From out first conversation I said I want to get married and make some babies before it’s to late. He said he want that as well. With no time to waste or hesitation he got on one knee and said marry me and he mail me my ring through Amazon dot com. (lol) I thought it was cute and I agree the rest is history and now today I can say I am engaged to my best friend.

He promised to give me the world on a silver platter with us on a balcony of a beauty hotel overlooking a panoramic view of a beautiful blue water and tropical plants somewhere in Dubai, Africa or Europe. He has no idea him committing to only to me is all I need. I think love comes in mystery ways and it only appears when your are open to receive it. I had to lose a lot of things that I loved for my heart to open up to the possibility of the beauty that others truly bring into your life. With that being said I am glad I found my forever man and this is truly until death does apart and for better or worse. I love you Tobi Dollar
