That Sunday night was the worst night of sleep I had because my body didn't know whether it wanted to be hot or cold. I still had a stuffy nose and a bad cough so that kept me awake. When I got hot my throat became dry so I would feel parched. So I tried to drink some ice water to break the fever, but instead I became extremely cold real fast. At that very moment I knew something was wrong and I knew I had the flu. I was still destined to show my face at work especially after the holiday weekend to prevent conflict with being absent. I did go for about two hours and felt I couldn't make it and went straight to the doctor's office. They quarantined me with another woman with the flu in another room, I waited for about three hours before being seen. I was freezing, thirsty and my lips kept chapping up. What a combination. Plus coughing and a stuffy nose too. My doctor was surprised I even went to work the way I was. He said I had fluid in my ears, my glands were swollen and I definitely had the flu. He then told me that the Swine Flu would not be as bad as the regular flu. I just hoped it wasn't bad at all whatever one it was. As soon as I got home, I jumped right in the bed for the rest of the night and took the prescribed medicines. It has been a struggle because the cough and the stuffy nose has not left yet along with the chest congestion. I still continue to take my medication, drink plenty of liquids and let my body get plenty rest but it is not easy. Hopefully I'll be fully recovered before returning to work. Then I have to make a follow-up visit with the doctor.

I first saw Brittany Murphy on the Disney Channel television show, The Torkelsons. Many people don't quite remember this show, but my mom and I loved it and tried to watch every episode. She wasn't a main character but her character did out shine many on the show. She had such a quirky and bubbly yet lovable personality. This also followed her to the television show Sister, Sister with the Mowry twins, Tia and Tamara as the friend who was able to tell them apart when nobody else knew the difference. My most memorable role of her to this day is her role as Tai on Clueless. She was the main one that couldn't fit in to the one who became more popular than the best. In this film she kind of reminded me of me in my small circle of friends. The klutz, the awkward one, the geek, but yet the one with true inner beauty that shined throughout. I really loved the movie and she played the hell out of that part. it nearly had me convinced. :-)
But this girl was multi-talented and versatile playing any type of role to the fullest that came her way. From her angelic singing voice in Happy Feet to her sinister role in Sin City and from her innocence in Clueless to her rawness in 8 mile, this woman will be remembered. May she rest in peace and my prayers go out to her friends and family.

Another segment of the documentary I liked was the segment about weaves. I was never a fan of weaves but I have worn a few in my days. I first started with ponytail pieces and braiding hair. When I wore my first ponytail piece, I thought I was so fly lol until this girl yanked it clean off my head lol. I wore a few long quick weaves, wigs as well as back pieces. But nothing brings me out more than my natural hair. After watching Good Hair, they show where human hair weaves come from. It is not surprising to me that it comes from India because they have beautiful hair quality, but these people sacrifice their hair to make our hair look good.
Kudos to Chris Rock and everyone who contributed to the making of this documentary because it makes me look at hair a whole different way.

And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break"
The song is just awesome and she did an excellent job performing. I'm so glad I did not miss it.
Also congratulations to her receiving the International Artist Award.

Another point made in the film is "Will you be saved if there is a way to survive?" According to the film, people who had billions of dollars here safe and average people like me and you will never know what's happening. Now that the movie made that point clear, I'm sure people are wondering "What will they do when the time comes?" I know I did. Another point it makes is "Will you be at peace with God or your higher power?" and if you are, "Will you fear death and take the sacrifice?" I know I'm afraid to die but if I do I am at peace with God. This movie will make you think about plenty of things. I feel that people should go out to see this film. It will make you wonder, no doubt about it.

I do pray that Janet will stay strong and always keep Michael in her heart until they meet again.
May God be with her and her family through this tough time. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Jackson family.
Here's a bit of their memories and photos of Janet

I wore the costume to work and so many people were amazed at what they saw. My co-workers enjoyed it as well as my customers that came in that day. I danced and did the Moonwalk for them. When I went outside, cars stopped and waved at me yelling 'MICHAEL!" I had so much fun. People were also taking my picture, too. It was the coolest feeling. Plus I realized how many people do like Michael and it made me feel good about being him.

There was a point in my life where I did, but not intentionally, forget about him. There was a time where I took him for granted. I also thought he was invincible. I thought he would be here forever. I thought he was alright. I thought he would always grace us with his presence. So you tend to put people like that on he back burner for a while cause you know it's going to be okay. He was hurt. He was lonely. He was a human being crying out for help and we all thought he was crying wolf. He's been through so much, from accusations to criticism, but he was invincible to us. Maybe it's because he always smiled or put on a hell of a show. Maybe it's because we never saw him cry. Well I'm am typing this with tears in my eyes because this gentle soul has slipped through our fingers. But I always loved him but I do feel bad about placing him on the top shelf of reach.
This situation was a wake up call to me in many ways. It lets me know not to take anything for granted. Not to take for granted your family, your job, your education, your health, the good times and especially yourself because tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
My heart, thought and prayers go to the Jackson family and rest in peace to the King of Pop.
To my family and friends, I love you!!
