Happy 2019!

Hi everyone! I hope all is well for you! Happy New Year! I’m behind on updating the blog! If you’ve been following me, you know I’ve been working a lot lately. I was working double shifts, especially during the holidays. I have a couple of days off so I wanted to say hi! I’ll be starting a new job in the next few days aside from the one I have now. I’ll still be around but probably not as much as I was before. I’m excited I get to travel to San Francisco for the new job later this month or in early February. It’s one of my favorite cities! 

On a more serious note…I’ve been keeping up with the news and I don’t like what’s happening in our country these days. It’s depressing knowing our government is partially shut down over a $5 billion U.S.-Mexico wall that won’t work. Living in a border town, I know firsthand it won’t work. People always find ways to get here like staying here after an expired Visa, etc. Mexico won’t pay for the wall either! Federal employees are working without pay while some higher ups are getting a raise. Food stamp benefits might also not be around come February. I’m disappointed about what this nation is facing right now. Despite all of this, some people still think Trump is the greatest president this country’s ever had. Seriously, what is wrong with some people? Switching topics…

After reading about “Surviving R. Kelly” on social media, I decided to watch it last night on Lifetime. I was disgusted and sad over it. I had a very hard time falling asleep after watching it. I grew up listening to R. Kelly’s music as a teenager. I enjoyed hit songs like “Bump n Grind”, “I believe I can fly” and many others. I’ve liked his music for over 20 years now. I don’t know if I can continue listening to his music. In the early 2000’s, he was accused with having sex with a 14 year old girl. It was recorded on video and distributed. He was acquitted of child pornography charges. The documentary includes women R. Kelly dated, family members and others who claim he had sexual relationships with minors. Some even say Kelly runs a sex cult in Atlanta and Chicago. The documentary series has been on my mind a lot. I hope justice is served to the max if necessary. What’s new with you? What do you think of all of this? I’ll be catching up on blogs today and tomorrow. Take care everyone and I’ll talk to you soon!

  3. Hi! It was good even though it was very disturbing. I was in middle school when he married Aaliyah. I think OJ was in jail recently. I think they were going to release him or already did. Not sure about MJ but maybe…Thank you for stopping by!

  4. We watched the R.Kelly docu series. It was really good. I remember knowing about it when it was happening with Aleigha, at the end of high school and in college. I can’t believe that it continues to happen. He’s disgusting. Very similar to Michael Jackson or even O.J…. have enough money, pay enough people.. don’t get in trouble.

  5. Hi Erika! Happy New Year! ❤ I hope all is well! R. Kelly's trial for the sex tape took place in 2002. I remember when it was happening. I think it was even delayed for years. He's very talented but unfortunately I think I believe what he's accused of. It wasn't just one or two women that came forward, it was at least 15-20 in the documentary. Some of his own family members are even on the docu series. He's denying all of it but…He put a video on Facebook Live recently saying they should've caught him 30 years ago. A lot of the females in the series said his songs were about relationships he was in. I don't know what more I can say about Trump. Thank God it's only one more year with him…hopefully! He's running for president again in 2020. It's depressing! 😦

  6. First of all Happy New Year, Lisa!!
    I haven’t heard about R. Kelly yet. I am totally shocked since I loved his songs too. Unbelievable!!
    Also what one person is able to destroy in his megalomania! What his predecessors achieved he stamps to the ground in moments. A scandal that such a person was legally elected!

  7. Hi Ritu! Happy New Year! ❤ I heard about it some years back but it's been resurfacing for awhile now. I wonder if they'll show it over there in the U.K.?
