Scandal

Scandal is one of my new favorite shows that I am currently hooked on and can’t wait for season 2 to come out this fall. The show is about Olivia Pope who runs a crisis management firm and is the “fixer” mostly to high to profile clients and the White House.  I highly recommend watching it if you’re into the political scandals and what goes on behind scenes.

According to Wikipedia “Olivia Pope, is partially based on former George Bush administration press aide Judy Smith, who serves as a co-executive producer” It’s interesting to see how the former aide is incorporating her experience into the show, how much is inspired from true events and what is fictional.

Season 1 consists of 7 40 minute episodes just in case you were wondering. What are you waiting for? Go download it!

Life

I wish I was driving down this road, top down and listening to my tunes and clearing my head. It’s funny how this road depicts life, you keep on moving forward, not knowing what might cross your path and despite whatever it is that you may face you continue to move forward and survive. Once you look back it’s nothing but memory lane.

Favorite Tweet of the Day: David Spade

As I was going through my twitter timeline I could not help but want to post my favorite tweet of the day. David Spade was tweeting about the balance bracelets and how nowadays they are the trend. I would have to agree with what he said

“I never understood ppl buying those balance bracelets. Was everyone just falling down all the time before? Wtf. scam written all over it”

Below is a picture of the Balance bracelet just in case you were wondering. You may have seen it around on celebrities and people around you.

In Memory of Steve Jobs

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

(Steve Jobs, The Wall Street Journal, May 25, 1993)

The world has just lost its spark of talent, Steve Jobs has passed on after losing his battle to Pancreatic Cancer. The news of his passing saddened most of us, he has touched a lot of people by his visions and products. Nearly everyone all over the world has been exposed at one point or another to an Apple device may it be an iPod, iPad or an Apple computer. His devices revolutionized the technology industry. Apple lost a great leader and visionary.  May he rest in peace and have mercy on his soul.

Currently reading: 10th Anniversary

10th Anniversary is the tenth installment to the Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson. It tells the story of Detective Lindsey Boxer working her cases with 3 of her friends, Cindy, Yuki and Claire.  I have read all 9 books prior to this and I have been hooked on the series. It never disappoints to say the least. If you’re into mystery, thriller crime books then I would recommend you read the Women’s Murder Club series. The books are an easy read with short, straight  to the point chapters.
