What I've Been Up To Chpt 2..

1) Listening to more music that's healthy for any person

2) STUDYING!!! Four Exams over with...Two Left:)

3) Literally researching the spring collection dresses for Kuwaits amazing wedding season;p

4) Sneaking in a couple of episodes of Samantha Who, Grey's Anatomy, and Gossip Girl

5) I just watched the inauguration:

a- Michelle wore mint green...and I loved it

b- Sasha and Malia were the best dressed there

c- Aretha Franklin's hat was FAB-U-LOUS

d- I love the fact that i can say "I watched the inauguration of the first African-American President"in 50 years and know that it plays a big part in history..

e- My favorite parts of the speech (written by Jon Favreau) were:
"In reaffirming the greatness of our nation, we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of shortcuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted — for those who prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things — some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in their labor, who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom."

"For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus — and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace."
"To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West — know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist."

6) The Pre-inaugural support ( U2, Usher and Shakira, Bon Jovi and Bettye LeVette, Beyonce, Sheryl Crowe and Will im)
