"Positive Friday!!"


          

What's good in your life right this minute? What do you feel positive or excited about?

I'm excited that my husband's acting career is taking off!! Since October, he's booked 11 jobs, with half of them paying.

This past Wednesday, he had a featured role in an Alan Ferguson music video for the song "Classic Man" by Jidenna. Ferguson handpicked my husband at the audition...

Robin was also featured in Wish You Were Mine by Philip George
www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7ypnPjz81I

he also shot an Auntie Anne's Pretzel commercial
https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152989248122410

completed work on a principal role in a feature film & this spot for CareerBuilder.com:
http://youtu.be/iBV1QGxqa8g

and now that he has an agent, we are hoping for more big things to come..

... I spent most of my twenties, if I wasn't working, on dancefloors, buying girls breakfast and generally convincing myself I'd be young and carefree forever... now I'm signing up for 25 years of debt with a woman I have no intention of *ever* replacing.

I just need a kid and it's a wrap!

(I'm being a bit tongue in cheek, of course - i'm ridiculously excited and it's all happened at the perfect time.)

>portland was awesome
first off, i'm dying to go to Portland..i hear so much good about it

>my coworkers and i finna change the affordable housing game

so in case you didn't know, I help run a CDC in Newark and this conversation about affordable housing comes up a lot in the Newark-sphere among developers, other CDCs, government officials..etc...actually they talk more about mixed income housing now but whatever..

anyway, what did you learn in Portland as it relates to affordable housing?..assuming that's why you were there

In response to Reply # 7


  

          

it was a meeting of a network of organzations who created community land trusts

so basically the trust owns the land and sells or leases the housing on top of it

so the land remains dedicated to affordability permanently

which is something all major cities should be doing on a large scale
but won't ever happen honestly.


we have a plan that we want to do in our organization that will ultimately lead to creating our own trust but baby steps. lol.

just the idea of that is most certainly revolutionary...good luck. and you're right..there is no way that could ever happen in NYC and very unlikely in the political landscape of Newark

via a publication i'm involved with. it's cool but i feel underwhelmed. i guess it will be good for me long term? meh.

i think i want to write a book.

i've kinda started planning my dissertation, even though i don't have to submit my proposal for a couple of months. it's basically the same as what i thought it would be when i started this masters, so i guess it's a strong idea.

i haven't been feeling too good, so i'm looking forward to resting a lot this weekend. have a good one, everyone x

In response to Reply # 0


          

i have been here since 845a and i am wiped out
had a scare this week but all is well now
came in for a regular appt and immediately got sent to the hospital for possible pre eclampsia
24 hours, lots of tests, and a good dress rehearsal later I was discharged with my delivery date moved up a week with lots of monitoring
hence why I have been here all damn day!
one of my babies doesn't want to cooperate with any of the tests they are running so I'm stuck

i learned a lot in that time at the hospital -
1 i'm fearless and strong
2 my husband is fcking amazing under pressure
3 babies are in great shape and would thrive outside in the world at this point
4 my hospital and doctors are the best of the best

we are ready for these babies
whether it's this tuesday or a week from then
i wasn't sure we would make it this far so whatever happens now,
i am ready for it

this wkend - if they let me go home i will be napping, putting the final touches on the nursery, having my maybe-final adults only brunch, cleaning and just getting ready for a whole new world

have a great two days everyone!

i mean i give a fck but i don't give that much of a fck

no, really. i love coming in here every week and seeing so much movement and happiness, especially when my week has been less than stellar.

this weekend i'm gonna rely on my friends to lift my spirits and keep me laughing and remind me that there is still joy to be found.

life is good and love is good and god is good...y'all have fun & be safe this weekend, mmkay?
