30 Days of ME! – Day 12

Why WordPress?

I used to blog over at blogger/blogspot until I happened upon a much more  BlackBerry, user friendly app!  I transferred all my previous blogs over here and have been doin’ it ever since!  I must say, I love all the various themes and updates that WordPress offers.  Half of the bells and whistles, I’m sure I don’t even know about or know how to apply! I’m stickin’ around here for awhile!!

Until tomorrow…

30 Days of ME! -Day 8

Your Superhero!

I was never really into superheroes. Wonder Woman was pretty dope, but I was old enough to know that she was a fraud.

My superhero is my mom!! My “Dad” was barely around when I was growing up, so my mom did everything. She raised my brother and I (the 2 youngest) on a teacher’s salary, with no income throughout the summer. We were not spoiled kids but never went without. She must have done a helluva job saving her extra “nickels, dimes, quarters”!

As I got older, we didn’t see eye to eye on a lot of things, but I always respected her. A lot of things I didn’t “want” to do but I did because she was my mom. Early Saturday morning grocery store runs, last minute cigarette stops, personal taxi service, etc. I quietly grunted and growled as I did these chores. Now, I would trade the world to have her back with me so that I could do those things with and for her! Never take your loved ones for granted, they can be snatched from you at any given moment!!

I love and miss you mom!!

30 Days of ME! – Day 7

Most Effective Retail Therapy!

My name is Katy and I am addicted to retail! Lack of funds has recently curbed my ability to shop as much as I love to, but…

I LOVE to buy make-up! Mostly eyeshadow and lip gloss! Sephora and MAC are my two most favorite hot spots!!

I also love to buy shoes! Tennis shoes, flip flops, flats and HEELS (any shoes)!! I have especially had my sneaker itch lately! I spotted one “to die for” pair on a chick at Disneyland and have been obsessed since! My search continues…

Until tomorrow…

30 Days of ME! – Day 6

30 Days of ME! – Day 5

Worst Habit!

This one is kinda tricky! I always thought that what I have, is a horrible habit! Turns out, it is a serious problem!


For those that don’t know what it is…I pull my hair out. I started in the 6th grade and have been “pulling” ever since. I hate it and wish I could stop! I am not an extreme case, but extreme enough to have ruined my hair and have bald patches.

I tried Prozac, this worked a little, but the side effects were UGLY! Studies show that behavior therapy is most beneficial, but I can’t afford it!! FML. I always thought about hypnotherapy, but how do you find one? Til then, I’ll just continue to be a freak! So, if you are around me and see me pulling, please tell me to stop! Chance are…I don’t know that I’m doing it!

Until tomorrow…

30 Days of ME! – Day 4

Show us your Friends!

Let me start by saying, I have quite a few aquaintances and just a handful of people that I call close friends! Not to offend anyone…and in NO particular order!!

Jennifer – We met in 1999! Her son attended a school that I taught at.  She is the other half to the coolest inter-racial couple I know! We have been through so much together! I love her!

Mamers-We met through another friend who has since been x-filed. Always good times, great listener and will do almost anything with me on a whim!


From L to R- uptop is Gloria, under is Yari and then Susie! When I was Director, these girls made up part of my most awesome staff! We are truly a family.  No matter what goes on, I can still catch up and pick up where I left off with them.

Justin – “This Guy”  Who ever says male and female cannot have a strictly platonic relationship, never knew us.  Super cool dude, stays fresh to death and is up on his Sneaker Culture! 


Auts- We have known each other since high school and have come a long way!  We are both super quick witted and sarcastic as all get out! Love her and her beautiful family!

Last and certainly NOT least…

My Baby- My BESTEST FRIEND! We met several years ago! Lost touch for a few years, now we are back! Ups and downs, ins and outs but I wouldn’t trade him for anyone! I love you Carlton! Thank you for still giving me butterflies! XoxOxOX

Until tomorrow…thanks for following!

30 Days of ME! – Day 3

What is the meaning behind your Blog Name?

Raised in The Wrigley Part of Long Beach, south of Willow Street, I was one of very few white kids. Growing up, this area was and continues to be predominately Black and Mexican. I went to private school with quite a few Filipino kids and had lots of Mexican friends. I am very fortunate to have been raised in a cultural diverse area.

As a result, I believe I have different views. However, TRUST that I am not ghetto. Well educated, street smart and possess common sense! That makes me…

“Not Your Average White Chick!”
