6 months, 1 week ago on Go East, Young Woman: Coping With Pre-Travel Abroad Jitters
I just love all things travel! Toni I certainly wish you all the best on your new adventure. I'll answer your questions as well. Won't be long.
1. What is the best way to cope with being terrified of flying? Window seat or aisle? Should I bring a paper bag? Am I being a big baby and scaredy cat?
Answer: Not exactly sure, but since you're interested in flying overseas I would start of with a short trip to somewhere. Not sure where you live but visit a friend in another state that would require you to fly. That way you get a feel for it. Flights overseas especially Thailand & or anywhere in Europe you're looking at a 14 hr flight. And if you really terrified 14hrs is a long time. However I have met other expats who flew to South Korea on their first flight ever. Conclusion, you'll live lol.
2.If one’s heart is set upon going abroad, what are the chances that they’ll regret it? Also, how does one deal with homesickness? (And a mom that is going to flood the world with her tears when her “baby girl” goes?)
Answer: The experience all depends on you and how you react to situations around you. I for one don't regret living overseas, there are very few that I know who did regret it, but they didn't put their issues aside, they brought the issue with them. Your mom, like any mother will cry when you leave, but she'll also be proud!
3. 3.) What are some popular travel resources for black women who are looking to network abroad and or find out relevant travel information?
Not sure if anyone has posted the link but there's a Women of Color Living Abroad Facebook/LinkedIn group you can join. In fact join it! The women there have so many experiences and advice to share.
4.) Does anyone have any travel stories they want to share? Including their very first trip abroad?
I've shared my experience here on BW&W on blog post. I also have a blog as well www.jamericanqueenabroad.blogspot.com where I shared my experiences including vacationing in Phuket, Thailand.
I love this cover! Go Oprah!

When I moved to South Korea that's when I discovered that Asian men were attracted to black women. I was asked out several times while in Korea for a date. I couldn't believe it. Ladies don't believe the lies...they are def. attracted to us!
Asian men being shy doesn't surprise me but if they really want to talk to you they will!
These are types of blog post I wanna see! Awesome job Christelyn!

@Browncow @Toni_M I told a friend of mine I need to head back over to Europe. I have no idea what's happening w/ American men (no offense guys love you)...but there's a vast difference and I'm not liking it.
European men see a beautiful woman they stop what they're doing (literally) and go talk to her. American men, stop, stare, and talk themselves out of talking to the woman. Unless you give him millions of signals that'll go over his head anyway. lol.
Ah to be back in Rome again...I'm working on it. *sorry if I went off topic,lol*

I'm sure this commercial reminded undercover racists who's President.
@Hallyu Love @somethingdifferent22 I think she's referring to this commerical...
@AminahMatthews @Skayi Those ladies failed to realize that Bradley Cooper is an East Coast man, meaning it doesn't matter the color of the woman. If he likes her, he will date her. He's from Philly for peace sake!
Yeah I was a little heart broken they didn't stay longer, but I felt he was a rebound. She recently broke off her engagement before going public w/ Bradley.
Oh well so is life! Wishing her the best w/ new beu!
9 months, 1 week ago on Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego Take Their Relationship Public in Italy
Girl continuing applying to Law School and get in there! You'll meet even more quality men there! You won't even remember him.
Chris said this.. "Often times however, when couples go through major rites of passages–graduating high school, graduating college, getting their first jobs, one or both partners may be itching to see what else is out there"
This is so true! I was that person that was itching for more. I was about 21 when I was dating a guy who was 24 yrs old and he wanted the works. Marriage, kids, house everything. I was not ready. I wanted to finish school, live abroad, have my own apartment, and visit Italy on my own. I wanted to do these things before I ever got into something long term. He and I did not last because I was not interested in doing so. This is what's happening with you and your guy. Let him alone and you go find someone else. Learn from this relationship and don't get with a guy who gets sloppy drunk. I never understood that lifestyle. There's nothing cute/funny about it.
Wishing you all the best! Listen to your gut! It's called "Woman's Intuition".

9 months, 2 weeks ago on Swirling Success in Sweden!
@Toni_M She'll be fine. Everyone knows that movie flopped because it was a Tyler Perry-produced movie and I think people are FINALLY sick of his movies and everything associated with his brand.
I don't think it's that. the movie was up against "The Great Gatsby". It's been an anticipated film and a great film which I loved! It was a bad choice to put out the film in the summer and promotion for it was poor. the only reason i even knew the film was coming out was because of twitter. This is the time for blockbuster films. I don't see this movie moving up the box office charts but down. This weekend is Star Trek which I predict will be number one, next week is Hangover III, the week after is "After Earth". The movie came out at a bad time.
I was also speaking w/ my brother who said the movie looked childish, which it did. Like how many "meet the parent" films do we have to watch. And Tyler clearly has a class issue among blacks and if he doesn't mind I would like Kerry's love interest to be attractive. You think they would make a film of a overweight black woman getting a man like Lance Goss...yeah, no.
Hopefully this will be the last type of film she does. She can do better than that.

@DeepWater Forgot to mention in the movie "Salt" it was the same thing starring Angelina Jolie.
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Random Thoughts About the Boston Bomber--What's Your Take?
@DeepWater "He's was on the honor roll at Cambridge Latin and Rindge School (high school that famous alumni, including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, also the mighty Patrick Ewing (retired - NY Knicks, Orl. Seattle Supersonics - now OK Thunder -, Orlando Magic) and went to the prom and just yesterday evening a classmate played soccer with him the previous Monday before the bomb blast this past Monday, he said they hung out and he was just, you know, a good kid, had friends, on wrestling team, in dramatic classes, like ANY other young person in America today. Didn't seem to give off the "I hate America, death to America" type vibes."
I use to watch a show on Showtime called "Sleeper Cell" starring Michael Ealy. These guys are pretty much trained to live a double life. They will make friends with Americans, go to work, stay off the radar, and then one day something like Boston happens. What his friends and family says doesn't surprise me. They really had no idea and that's the whole point, otherwise they could never carry out their plans.
I just hope this will be the last type of film Kerry gets into. She can do better than this. You know as I watching the preview for the movie "After Earth" the new film with Will and his son, I was thinking I wish it were the other way around, that the film starred Jada and her daughter. That would have been a more interesting aspect.
