- My name is Sathiyyah, but ppl call me Tai or Tiyyah. I like to think of myself as a fine young lady and a scholar. I'm almost a 23 year-old SENIOR (woo hoo). I am a Communications Media major with a concentration in Public Relations. I would like to one day become an ad copywriter with a gig making super bowl commercials. I am originally from Harlem, but I now stay in Maryland. I can be a bit shy sometimes, but lately ppl think I'm outgoing. I love meeting new ppl and learning about different places and cultures. I'm a girl who is into learning....big time. I enjoy chilling with friends, dining out, amusement parks, museums, musicals, music as a whole (motown is the best!) I love the Temptations and The Jackson 5. I am open to meeting new ppl. I dislike irresponsible adults, disorganization in the workplace, conformity, drugs and anything that does not edify the name of Christ. I am in no way perfect, just flesh and blood trying to be for Christ.

Wake up out of your daze!
I'm thinking that I want to talk about dreams today. In this week, dreams have been a motif. I had two weird dreams and a friend of mine had a weird one just last night. Actually, I'm hearing about the dream as I am typing. I am not even sure of how to try to comprehend them. I'd love to tell you about my dream, but I have this thing about posting my innermost thoughts on the web...even though I'm a blogger lol.
I'm not going to talk about my personal dream, but the topic takes me back to one of my favorite people in the Bible. There's Jesus, Esther, and then Joseph! I love the stories about when young people do great things. Without getting too off topic, I love the story of Esther because she was so brave. I am older than the age people believe she was at the time, but even at this age I wouldn't do what she did to save her people. Actually, I don't think that I would do a lot of what the young people did in the Bible. They truly had to overcome some things.
Joseph was his father's favorite. Being the oldest of all of my siblings, I know exactly how that must have felt to know that your younger brother was the favorite. I don't think I would have been mad at my sibling, but I would have picked on them. I mean put yourself in their shoes a minute...You have these two brothers who get special treatment, just because their mom was your father's favorite wife. Then, he's having these dreams that represent you bowing down to him. To make matters even worse, he gets a brand new Gucci jacket, while you're wearing Target's finest. I don't know about you, but I would be pretty jealous. Joseph's brothers were.
Long story short, his brothers' scheming had him as a slave. Eventually, his dream came true...by interpreting someone else's dream. I always found it interesting that his life took a turn after a dream was spoken of. You follow? Think back to when his brothers sold him...After he told them his dream. Think of how he got of jail...After he interpreted the cup bearer's dream. Although some time passed before the cup bearer remembered Joseph, it took a dream to remember. When the Pharaoh needed answers, Joseph interpreted. It was then that Joseph's dream actually came true. Pretty interesting, huh?? lol
I really wish Joseph was around to tell me what all of these dreams mean, I'm totally confused. In the meantime, I'm going to pray on it and seek God's answers. That's all I can do. As for my friend, I'm gonna pray for him too! Well, there are some chores I must attend to today, so that's all.
