Stop Letting The Box of Mass Distraction Govern Your Life

This message is to all the people that drown themselves in sorrow because they want to live the lives of another. Please stop sitting down in front of the idiot box (television) feeling sorry for yourself. Stop watching how other folk’s lives are better than yours. I beg of you to push away from the box of mass distraction so you can stop beating yourself up. The people on television represent a very small portion of the world and many of the things that happen Continue reading →

April Sims Quote: Don’t Let Fear of the Word No Stop You

Don’t let fear of the word no stop you. So many have missed their window of opportunity because someone told them no and that made them uncomfortable so now they settle in life because they do not want to hear the word no again. Build a bridge and get over yourself. www.AprilSims.com

April Sims Quote: Step To The Side and Get Out Your Way

There comes a time in one’s life when you have to forgive yourself, then step aside and get out the way of your progress. Standing in the door of success will not make you successful. You have to go through the door in order to achieve success. Don’t let others pass you by. ~ www.aprilsims.com

You Gonna Make Her Love Somebody Else

This blog was inspired from one line, “told me a lie and didn’t have an alibi”, from Jocelyn Brown’s song entitled “Somebody Else’s Guy”. Don’t make relationship decisions for other people. If you are in a relationship tell the potential other woman that you are in relationship. Then let her decide if she wants to be the other woman. Some women might be comfortable with being the other woman, however the lies come in when a man wants to enter into an extra relationship with Continue reading →

April Sims Foodie Diaries: Gordon Biersch Food Review

I went to Gordon Biersch located in Rockville Town Square, after I saw The Avengers … I loved the atmosphere, however the food was mediocre compared to the ambiance that surrounded it. I ordered the Grilled Chicken with roasted veggies. The chicken and veggies were presented to me hidden under a mound of arugula. I was almost afraid to remove the greens. I took a deep breath and removed them, then rearranged the food on my plate so it would make a decent picture. The Continue reading →

OMG!!! Tommie the server at Copper Canyon Grill made my pre-birthday (day before my birthday) dinner experience a very pleasant and memorable experience.

The burger was grilled to perfection. It went from a huge burger quickly to a burger I had to enjoy with a knife and fork. The bread was so tender. Continue reading →
