MMF Celebrates Black History in Music, Feb. 25

American Idol star, Jennifer Hudson, took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Dreamgirls at 79th Annual Academy Awards on February 25, 2007.

Hudson played Effie White in the movie and was a STAR from her opening scene. Her cover/extended version of Jennifer Holiday’s, ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’ is unforgettable.

Post-Dreamgirls, Hudson went on to release 2 studio albums (Jennifer Hudson / I Remember Me), won a Grammy (plus other awards for acting/singing), and appeared in more movies such as: Sex & The City 2, The Secret Life of Bees, Black Nativity, and more. She starred as Winnie Mandela in the movie, Winnie, released in 2013. Her 3rd studio album is set to be released sometime this year and she’s released her first single of the project, ‘I Can’t Describe,’ featuring T.I.

Sunday Rant (V.2): Lazy to Productive

It’s 8:03pm (notice I like to timestamp events in my life) and I’m just getting around to putting up my rant. It’s before midnight so it’s fine. I’m just determined to get up a blog post EVERY DAY! Today I woke up fairly early and I’ve finally got my sleep schedule back on a routine.

I spent the beginning part of my day editing my blog’s archive (which is almost finished), but then I looked around my room and saw how messy it was. It’s hard to work in mess no matter how much you try to look around it, or sit on top of it. I decided to clean my room.

In the midst of cleaning I decided to work on some blog posts. There goes the distraction and procrastination of cleaning my room. The sun was still out and I wanted to get some posts done with natural lighting. Stay tuned for those! After getting all my photos done I was able to clean my room and so some laundry. I try to do most of my work on the weekends because after working anywhere from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday I’m tired and all I want to do when I get home is shower, eat, and watch my favorite shows.

SPEAKING OF, my winter will be filled with episodes of Law & Order: SVU (still not the same without Stabler), Criminal Minds, NCIS: Los Angeles, Pretty Little Liars, Netflix,WWE (yes I’m a wrestling fan), and my personal fav YouTube!

I get a lot of inspiration for YouTube whether it’s an incentive to go buy the latest product, DIY ideas, tutorials, hauls, and my new fav vlogs, I love them all. As for the WWE I will soon be canceling my Netflix Account and signing up for the WWE Newtork ($10/month). Yeah it’s a $2 increase in my ‘budget’, but all the perks with the WWE Network are so worth it.

As for my night I’ll be looking on Instagram & Google to see who won at the Golden Globes, editing & creating more blog posts for  the upcoming weeks, and getting into my magazines of the moment.
