ii hate to admit that for once in like forever ii am looking forward to youth day o8. seriously, ii think ii was a lil too quick to bash the leaders on last week out of frustration but to my surprise, everything is coming together and some people are taking the extra initiative to do what needs to be done. this week is crunch time and we only have a few more days to get everything on point but ii know that it is going to work out. ii am soo excited and cant wait to see how things turn out. secretly, ii am wishing my HebHeb was gonna be there this year…he played such a crucial part in SBC youth ministry but ii know he better be somewhere praying us thru lolzz… we gonna make it do what it do. the dances are coming together nicely. they are finished and now all there is to do is practice Pratice PRACTICE. today ii have to go to choir practice and dance so ii know ima be tired but oh well it works.

AP: Clinton To Concede Delegate Race To Obama

Senator Returns To N.Y. To Make Major Announcement

 Campaign ’08 Complete Coverage

 About The Candidates & Issues

NEW YORK (CBS) ― Hillary Rodham Clinton will concede Tuesday night that Barack Obama has the delegates to secure the Democratic nomination, campaign officials said, effectively ending her bid to be the nation’s first female president.

The former first lady will stop short of formally suspending or ending her race in her speech in New York City. She will pledge to continue to speak out on issues like health care. But for all intents and purposes, the two senior officials said, the campaign is over.

Most campaign staff will be let go and will be paid through June 15, said the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to divulge her plans.

The Democratic presidential candidate has returned to New York City to speak at Baruch College on Tuesday night, where she is expected to give a farewell, yet not quite say her goodbyes.

This follows the final primaries in South Dakota and Montana and word that Sen. Barack Obama is expected to reap a super delegate harvest this week.

Sources told CBS News that most of the 17 uncommitted super delegates from the Senate are expected to endorse Obama shortly, along with at least a dozen House members.

In South Dakota on Monday, she was still acting like she was in it to win it. “We’re slightly behind in the delegates, but we’re going to make our case to all the delegates as to who would be the best president,” she said.

Perhaps the most telling sign of what’s to come tonight came from the candidate’s husband. “This may be the last day I’m ever involved in a campaign of this kind,” former President Clinton said. The Clinton campaign said later, however, that he was talking about the primaries only.

Sen. Obama said he spoke only briefly on the phone to Clinton Sunday night to congratulate her on her win in Puerto Rico and he said he emphasized to her what an extraordinary race she’d run.

“I told her once the dust settled, I was looking forward to meeting with her at a time and a place of her choosing. We still got two more contests to go and I am sure that there will be further conversations after Tuesday,” Obama said.

While Democrats are trying to end their nomination battle, tonight John McCain is kicking off his general election campaign with a prime time speech in New Orleans where he’s expected to say Obama’s theme of change is nothing compared to his history of reform.

…thats my new quote. feel free to borrow it, the cost is $5.00 per word. [[sorry yall, gas is too high]] anyways, that came to my mind on yesterday after a very interesting conversation with someone.
ii remember back to them days when ii was fresh outta high school [[seems like forever ago now]] but ii was a wild child. ii wanted to party, have fun and do anything that ii was bold enough to do. now, im not soo bold. sure, ii love to have my fun every once in a while but there comes a time when the partying gets a lil old. ii guess thats why im starting to look at things differently. im just tired of the every day thing…lets get together every other weekend with some crabs and a hand of spades, and throw in some henney or pina coladas for good measure but thats all the fun ii can handle. dont get me wrong, ii aint tapping out of the game just yet, but some things need to change. fun three years ago aint fun to me anymore. now fun, is chilling in a relaxed environment and just having a good nice RELAXED time. sure, there are going to be some weekends that ii will crave the hype and when that happens you better believe ima be out there doing me. every once in a while ii might feel like stepping out for a night on the town or doing something crazy wit the gurls but for right now im on chills. getting my priorities together and getting my self together so ii can be on my A game when the party is over. most of these dummies out here wanna party all summer and then think that when winter come they can hop up like aint nothing wrong…well ii wont be caught in that crowd again. im planning ahead. yeah, im looking for a good time…im still all about money and fun but at the end of the day ii refuse to lose myself or lose sight of my goals over a few moments of fun…
