Hey Zakkiyya!!! Thank you so much for reaching out to me yesterday! Yes I'm still alive and still hanging in there by popular demand. Physically I'm fine but financially I'm still working at it. Just working at macys still for now in menlo park, nj. Can't believe the year is almost over again. I'm trying to extend my photography business still. I need to attend to different and more events and take pictures in them to be more known. How are you by the way? I hope you're doing better than me!

Hey Zakkiyya! How's work coming along?? Hope you had a nice weekend and hopefully Irene wasn't bad to you.

Sorry, don't think I'm gonna make it tonight. Too much to do at work. Hopefully next time.

Thanks dear! I'll appreciate that. Yea it just didn't work the way how I wanted and the way how the company wanted.  But besides me, how are you doing?
At 10:35pm on July 18, 2011, Charles said…
A little down with jobs! I no longer have the intern job. I lost it over a month ago because they let me go. It was meant to be but I still have my other part time job at Macy's and still trying to expand on my photography! If you need any pictures taken or if you need a photographer, then you can contact me just to let you know! How's july been treating u?
