it's noahs...like the ark...

Request your space on the ark...or ask me anything.   Wanna share?   "noah?" "yes, noah....like the ark..." "oh. [awkward pause] that's an awfully weird name for a girl"

In case you missed it. Yes, my name is Noah. Yes, I am a woman. Yes, my mother gave me my name at birth. Yes, Noah is a woman's name. And, yes, this is my blog.

My life. My trials. My tribulations. My random musings.

hate it. love it. LOL it. OMG it. whatever floats your boat....cause this floats my ark.

*boom*

My name is Akintunde Ahmad, and I am a senior at Oakland Technical High School. I am aware that many of you have heard about my story recently in the news. It is true, I am headed to one of the nations top universities, although I have not yet decided which one. However, at these schools my expected family contribution is still in the range of $17,000 to $28,000. That is why I would greatly appreciate any donations, as many people have expressed that they would like to help me with college tuition in any possible. 

Thank you in advance, 

Akintunde Ahmad

In this funny, poignant talk, Brené Brown explains what makes us feel a sense of love and belonging. It’s a powerful reminder (especially for all you Type A’s out there) to embrace the messy and unknown, even when that leap of faith seems scary or uncertain.

Beautiful words from Brené Brown’s TEDxHouston talk to inspire you this week.

New Photos of John Coltrane Rediscovered 50 Years After. They Were Shot. During the recording of A Love Supreme in 1964, Chuck Stewart caught the jazz legend in his element. But 72 photographs from six rolls of film never made it beyond the contact-sheet stage, and so haven’t been published. Stewart’s son David recently rediscovered those images in his father’s collection, and now Stewart is scheduled to include some of them in a donation to the National Museum of American History this month.

Few artists thrill and captivate live as much as Rodrigo y Gabriela. So it’s fitting that the duo’s new video, for “The Russian Messenger,” is a no-frills performance highlighting their guitar work.
