All Roads from this Point on lead to www.KeeMyselfandi.com
I've finally reached a point of developing my own Domain and look forward to sharing what's on the way!
Although I am transitioning to my domain, I imagine I'll be keeping this BlogSpot for learning purposes (Coding, editing, behind the scenes, journaling etc.), so it's still safe to tune in here.
I also look forward to coming across other great blogs that have a unique edge with a unique vantage point to offer.

FDNY Representing at Rochdale Village's 1st Annual College and Career Fair
It wouldn't be right if I didn't begin by saying "Thank you" to Derek Watt for reaching out to involve me in this event. I am glad that I got to be involved as not only an attendee but, as someone who got a chance to document it.
Okay, here we go:
The Status of this Event = A Success
On Saturday April 16, 2011 - I had a chance to attend and document Rochdale Village's 1st Annual College & Career Fair
For Rochdale's 1st Annual College & Career Fair the coordinators have done an excellent job.
[Below are thoughts that ran through my mind as I observed what occurred at the event and thought about the college and education process in life]
First & Foremost, I genuinely enjoy arriving at an event during setup as it gives me a chance to see how things will develop.
The Fair was unique and definitely something our community was in need of, a sort of, bringing the College & Career Prep environment home.
I'm not sure if many parents and/or family members take the time out to attend events like these with their children, as events such as this one are prime opportunities for you to learn the necessary requirements for preparing for and applying to college - these are very important events.
I do understand that sometimes circumstances don't permit for involvement but, I also cannot stress the importance of being involved in your children's education process.
Yes, education and preparing for Higher Education is a process that requires information, dedication, and Hard Work but, this process, is one that can pay off both professionally and personally for both you and your children. Education can definitely be a Business but, with involvement, you can turn it into a win-win deal.
Academic success throughout Elementary, Junior High, and High School can help increase your child's chances of attending the College or University that they most wanted to attend. And in those cases when students weren't able to do their best, there is still hope. You can always learn of what is required in the College process, apply yourself and then achieve.
Each stage of education plays a major part in the next part of education. Elementary - the bare bones minimal in learning. Intermediate - (Junior High) The Challenge/Acquiring skills that aid in your future education. Secondary - (High School) Honing these recently acquired skills to develop them and also learning the basics and importance of personal responsibility for your academic success.
If those three stages in education can be completed successfully then that is 1/3 of the battle won - ofcourse there's always the Financial part, and the know how in deciphering the entire college application process and scoring well on tests.
But, enough of that for now...Let's get to the pictures of Rochdale Village's 1st Annual College & Career Fair...
Some of what you will see are pictures of the setup, key coordinators of the event, our youth and family members interacting at the event, and just an overall view of what we experienced firsthand at the Fair.

Sunday, March 6, 2011
Today is a very special Day. Exactly 1 year ago Saturday March 6, 2011 I began www.KeeMyselfandi.BlogSpot.com with my first Blog Post.
Today - Sunday, March 6, 2011 I celebrate a year of consistency despite the odds, obstacles, and circumstances.
Last year, on this date, I was in the stages of re-building my life from what seemed to be almost rock-bottom. Today, I stand so much futher than that previous date. And although I am not exactly where and how I'd envisioned this date - I am surely steps closer to the "me I envision in my mind and feel in my heart."
*I am currently re-enrolled in College and working to complete my remaining 6 courses to fulfill the requirements for obtaining my Associate's Degree in Business Administration.
*Working in a Creative Field as an Administrative Assistant at a Graphic Design Company of a very Close Friend whom has traveled and partnered almost entirely on my Creative Journey in Business.
*Completely Passionate about Building KeeMyselfandi as a BRAND.
My Year in Review: (I've done so many things that I looked forward to doing)
*Traveled by myself to Atlanta,GA on Recreation
*Returned to College to Complete my Degree
*Began networking again in the Entrepreneurship and Creative environments
*Found a new Position that I can Contribute to the Organization's Goals
I like to celebrate small accomplishments and have learned to never despise SMALL beginnings.
While I still have so much unreleased material, I found that it would be best to take a step back completely revamp the look of KeeMyselfandi and Relaunch with a Great Plan and the much needed Structure.
Here's to another year of Growth and Development!
P.S Below and Above are a few of my favorite Pics just from my few experiences with KeeMyselfand I thus far...
