“don’t take my mr. gibbs from me!”

this #throwbackthursday has me feeling all kinds of nostalgia. i’m thinking of everything from old childhood pictures to old TV shows. did anyone used to watch the “wayans bros” with shawn and marlon wayans? if so, do you remember that episode when shawn’s teacher, mr. gibbs died? remember how marlon reacted? remember how funny that was? LOL hahahahaha…..if you don’t remember, i have the clip below to refresh your memory!

the success in failure!

i absolutely adore this video from @MarieForleo. it’s so encouraging. as i struggle with setbacks on this journey to success (as most of us do), i learned that failure and success are on the same road…success is just a little further ahead.

how reassuring is that?!

check out the video for more gooders…

free book downloads on amazon?

“we did it, we did it, we did it, hooray!”

thank you to all of my lovely supporters. with your help, the last two books of my #SoKoDiaries book series have been updated and are exclusive with amazon kindle. (the KDP program to be exact). because i’ve received so much support from amazon over the last year and a half since the realease of my first book, “SoKoDiaries: An American Teacher Living in South Korea,” i decided to publicizie solely with this amazon for the next 3 months. NOTE: you can still buy a paperback book on createspace, as well as amazon.

anywhovers, i hope you guys enjoy my reading journey as i traveled to south korea and then returned to my humble abode, los angeles, california!

thank you so so much. and a little nugget for ya, today (7/13/14) is the last day for FREE book downloads for volumes 2 and 3. yes, you read it right. FREE book downloads on amazon.com…GO! GO! GO! :-)
