Biden to Forgive Student Loans in August 2022?

  Alright folks I’m back with another student loan update! According to CNBC, Biden is set to make a decision on student loan forgiveness by the end of August 2022. Now while I’m not entirely sold that this is actually happening, there are several things for you to be aware of. First things first there is still no clear information on how much will be forgiven. While Biden did discuss student loan forgiveness of $10K during his campaign trail other sources have reported higher amounts of 50K. Of course, none of this is set in stone and we are all waiting to hear something. This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video on “Biden to Forgive Student Loans in August?” I am looking at the camera suspiciously while seated in my office. The background is red. There may also be income restrictions of who may qualify for student loan forgiveness. Single folks may have a threshold of 125K-150K while those who are married may be between 250K-300K. There is also some talk surrounding what typ

Adult Daily Living Skills: Natural Hair (Simple Bun)

 

Summer time is officially here and the humidity is out in Texas! My hair is natural or chemical free so that means that when the temperatures rise my hair shrinks. It’s always good to have a nice go to style that can beat the heat and last for a few days or longer. My go to style during the summer is a bun with Marley hair. Its keep my hair up and out of my face and I don’t have to worry about shrinkage.


Figure 1: This is a thumbnail from my latest YouTube video with me smiling in a before and after of me styling my hair into a bun.

 


Did you know that grooming or fixing your hair is an independent living skill? Well it is and it is not the easiest one to learn if I must say so myself. I have been natural since December 2014 and it has been a journey! When I moved to a new state, I decided to do my hair myself and I have gotten MUCH better over the last two years. If you’re wondering how I do a simple bun check out the steps below.


Figure 2: This is a photo of me with a surprised face first touching my hair.

 

First, start by using the L-O-C Method to moisturize your hair. That’s liquid, oil, and cream. I use water mixed with coconut and some essential oils as my liquid. Then I use olive oil and curling cream by Cantu. Be sure to brush your hair after applying the products in an upward motion.

 

Figure 3: This is a photo that describes the L-O-C Method with photos of each product.

 

Next, take an elastic band and put your hair in a bun. If your hair is tightly coiled like mine, you may need to “stretch” it by using a blow dryer or steamer to make things easier. Next, take a few strands of Marley hair and another elastic band. You will need to loop the elastic band around the hair and then loop it again on your bun. Now go ahead and wrap the strands around your hair in a circular motion to make a nice bun. Be sure to add at least two hairpins to each side so it doesn’t fly off haha! This actually happened to me once in a very packed movie theater so don’t be like me!

Fall 2021 HEERF & CARES Act Funding is Here!! (FREE Money for College Students!!)💵🤑💰

  A few days ago, I was surfing on my universities homepage and I noticed that there was a message at the top regarding summer II HEERF and CARES Act funding. Since I was enrolled in both summer semesters, I decided to send an email to the person listed as the contact to ask if I could receive more CARES Act funding for the fall semester. Since I had been enrolled in the first part of the summer and had already received funding I was not eligible but I was told that another round of CARES Act funding would be given in the fall! In case you did not know HEERF funding is the Higher Education Emergency Relief Act that was enacted for college students due to the pandemic. HEERF provides billions of support in education through CARES Act funding for enrolled students. Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my YouTube video on “Fall 2021 HEERF & CARES Act Funding is Here” where I am wearing a black shirt with a surprised look on my face.
