Model Minorities

Friday, January 30, 2009

Today, my boss told me about the 80's term, Model Minorities & how it originated with Asians, then Caribbean Islanders in the U.S. It's basically how these groups of minorities come to America and despite their initial economic and financial mishaps, find a way to survive and take-on entrepreneurship and education like no other ethnic group could.

At home, I fell alseep thinking, "I've done MRI's & all sorts of test, but still no explanation for these head-attacks I've been getting since about age 10." I've concluded that they're probably caused by the heavy thoughts I consume my mind with. I think way more than I speak.
Maybe I should cease writing and pick up motivational speaking.


Ohhhhhhh! I saw the final edits of our three TV commercials today & I heard our radio spots the other night!

I think way more than I speak too. But when I do decide to speak, ohhh boyyyy. :D You better not have anything to do for days. I don't know if I could be a motivational speaker. I'd probably say the word "like" too much and make way too many hand gestures. :/

nite girlie!
