My Moments in 2011: What I would like to do in 2012 and Beyond! If God is willing Part 1

My first post for 2012 I hope this won't be long but here I go............................


Sometime the plans you have for your life does not always turn out the way you want to; I had many plans set for myself in 2011 but unfortunately things went left instead of going right!

My Health

In the spring of 2011 I started to clean my room; my mom sleeps in the living room and I sleep in the bedroom and for many years the room has been use as a storage unit for my mom things, my sister things as well as my things. All these things had to go somewhere which is the trash!

The night before The Royal Wedding I got busy and started throwing away cloths, papers and other details I will not share! While cleaning out this room I felt very brave because I was letting go of everything that did nothing to help me or my family. Holding on to garbage is so sicking in more ways then one; although cleaning helped the room feel a little bit better it did not help my sinus!

From the Spring all the way into the Fall of 2011 I have been in the Hospital 3 times, 1 time to see my family doctor and 2 times to the emergency doctor on the weekends for my sinus! None of the medications they gave me worked so I decide to pray and take some Nightquil because I could not sleep while my nose was all stopped up!

With some prayer, airborne and Nightquil when I needed it, my sinus has been under control, now when I clean I wear a mask to cover my nose and mouth! 

The Menstrual Nightmare and The Leg that Couldn't move! 

Another thing happen to me in September of 2011, I got a visits from my period and let tell you that was not pretty at all! 

My menstrual was fully heavy, I was bleeding so bad and the cramps were even worst! I had to stay in bed for a week because the bleeding and the pain was just too much to handle! Again no medication I took helped at all so my answer to everything was praying to God! Now I know it's not cool anymore to believe in God but, I still do and that's who carries me when I'm in crisis or not in a crisis!

Finally after 11 days my period stopped and this is when things get a little bit interesting; I go from a long week of a bleeding nightmare to stiff leg! 

For 3 days after my period my leg could not move, my brain was telling me to get up and walk but I could not move to save my life! Again after 3 days I began to move a little and really think about what I want to do with my life! 

My Future Plans

I had so many things to think about while I was going through my health problems and I know had to make many changes in my life. For one I decide to lose weight, I have cut back on my soda intake and in November I stop eating meat after watching a video about how animals were being killed so we can eat; you really don't want to see that but one day I'm going to show it to you anyway!

I'm 30 years old and never travel the world, never really been on my own. I'm not looking to be in love or marriage which would leave to having children! I really don't see any of that happening in my life at the moment! I want to be full in my own happiest besides someone else.

 My Future Plans 2

My outlook on life has lead me into making this decision: I would like to teach English aboard! SHOCKING RIGHT; I always wanted to travel but never really wanted to live outside the States.

Nothing is official yet because there are so many things to do before I come full circle on what I decide to do. I see this as a chance to be on my own and leaning how to survive without my mother, father and learning how to depend on God (there he goes again). I am preparing myself now so I won't be so helpless later on!

Life still must go on while I'm still here in New York and I will not sit on the sidelines waiting for some hero to come save me! Life is too damn short and you don't know when you are going to leave this earth, I plan to make my own memories while I still walk the ground!

In Part 2 of this post I will go into my doll experience in 2011


  1. Oh honey I'm so sorry for your health problems. I'll keep you in my prayers. And God is always cool, no matter what you call Her.

    I took a class in NY to teach abroad. It was only a weekend and was really fun. I'll give you all the info I have if you want it. I never actually did it though. I was supposed to go to Thailand but then the tsunami happened so I didn't. After that I was just chicken. Do it! I'm really excited for you.

  2. Ebony, follow your dreams and always follow your heart. I pray for better health for you and a very prosperous and blessed year for you and your family.

    I love your blog's new look.

  3. Ebony I had no idea you were this ill over the last year. You know I would've come to wherever you were. I'd get that whole period/ no movement thing checked out with a doctor. I am a believer in God, the universe, etc. I will send prayers & good vibes out for you to pursue your dreams and bring them to fruition.

    Glad you are taking care of you. It has to be that way sometimes. You know where to find me if you need to talk or play :O)

  4. Sorry to hear about your health challenges but your positive attitude will help you overcome them. I did a certificate in teaching ESL with Oxford Seminars, a very reputable company that has a good job placement program. Best wishes for your travel plans!

  5. Hello from Spain: after all the health problems that you had the positive part is that you are finally better than your head and lets you organize your ideas and plans for the future. Now that you're psyched for what you have to try to fulfill those dreams. I hope in your future plans follow the blog. Keep in touch and I hope that in this new year we all that you propose.

  6. @ Vita I would gladly take any information you have to give thank you! After that earthquake that happen last summer on the east side of the world,I'm not so scared about anything anymore!

    @ Georgia Girl Thank you and FireFox has some wonderful things to use for your blog!

    @Anika I am one of those people who just don't talk about their illness until after the fact! I have my days but as I stated before I pray a lot so my days won't be so bad and I have a different outlook on life!

    Hope I can see you and the others real soon!

    @ Limbe dolls Thanks, I"m looking into where to go take my classes to get my ESL certificate!

    @Martha where ever I go the blog is coming also LOLOL! The blog will still be called BrooklynStarsForever but with a little twist! I just hope I can find other doll collectors!

  7. Wow, so sorry to hear about your health. I agree with Dollz4Moi about getting your leg issue checked out. Bravo to you for making so many changes in 2011 and for planning a future that involves getting out of your comfort zone. I highly recommend a site It is a wonderful health site that can help with losing weight, and just about any of the health related issues we face daily. I had an ex boyfriend who taught English in Korea for about 4 years. He loved it. I wish you all the best in whatever endeavors you embark upon in 2012. I just said a prayer for you and your family. I will keep you in my prayers.

  8. @Vanessa, it's so funny you mention Korea because that is where I like to teach! I'm doing my homework and working on my spelling and writing skills for myself before I teach somebody else! I will go to the doctor soon about my leg! Plus thank you for the website, I will check it out!
