Sorry I have not blogged in a while. A little and a lot has been going on since my last post. At first I'm was so bored I did not know what to blog about. Then, some much happen in so little time I have to get it all together. So much many personal things and historical event have happened in this year alone. I might do a multiple part blog post about 2016.
I turned 15 for the fifteenth time. I am a working process. I'm doing my best to get it together. I'm currently self employed but trying to look for more income. I'm at dad's home but working on moving back to Georgia. More coming soon.

This is the last of my Summer Olympics recap coverage. A bonus post about this topic is coming to you soon. Even though there have been great historical moments, there have been controversial moments as well. Over 118 athletes from Team Russia have been banned because of doping. Teams China and Jamaica suffered horrible living conditions. The rooms looked like as if the construction was not complete prior to the athletes arrival. Another problem with the Olympic games was the country of Brazil itself. There have been problems with pollution, poverty and the Zika virus. Because of the Zika virus, over 450,000 condoms were distributed this year.

As we get back my recap of the Summer Olympics in Rio, I'm going to discussing as much as I can about the history that was made doing those games. There were so many first and lasts as well. Let's get started shall we. I would first like to start off with Ibtihaj Muhammad.
When see the Parade of Nations, I would some the female athletes from mostly Islamic countries wear hijabs and adjust their uniforms according to their belief system. This Muslim fencer really stands out to me. This athlete is the first American Muslim to compete in the while wearing a hijab. Growing up her parents tried to find her a sport.She won a bronze medal for her sport this year.
She maybe only 4'8-9" but her athletic ability is as tall as I am (I'm 6'1"). Simone Biles has made history for being the sixth woman to win individual all-around gold medals for artistic gymnastics. She got to be the flag bearer for Team USA in the closing ceremony. Biles is also the first African American woman to be given the honor to do so.

http://www.nbcolympics.com. It was also was the last Olympics of some well-known athletes since they are going to retire. Now, were should I begin? How about the opening ceremony.
In spite of its lowest budget, this year's Olympics took place the Maracana Stadium. The performances were based on multiculturalism, environmental issues and its history of Brazil. The parade nations included about 200 countries and a new Refugee Olympic Team. One of my favorite moments was when Brazilian supermodel, Gisele Bundechen, cat walked to one of my most favorite jazz songs all time, "The Girl From Impena. Now on to the parade of Nations. There were so many stylish outfits that the athletes were this year. But the most unforgettable is the shirtless and oiled chest of Tonga's flag bearer, Pita Nikolas. It would not be a Brazilian Olympic opening ceremony with out samba dancers. Something that have been looking forward to for the past four years since I love to samba dance. The Olympic cauldron raised as if it was the sun. It warms my heart to see many nations come together in peace for 2 weeks to compete sports ranging from badminton to wrestling. Part 2 is coming soon.

I am completely shocked after the what just happened. what first came to my mind was, "50 PEOPLE! IN ONE CLUB! A LGBTI nightclub called Pulse was shot up by a gunman and hostages were taken on June 11, 2016 or in the early morning hours of June 12, 2016. At least 50 died and 53 were injured. There is a need of blood donations so if you are willing to donate please do so. This event has become the most deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history (in a nightclub because have been more deadly and tragic events in United States history.) My heart goes out to the victims, survivors and their loved ones. So please in this time of tragedy pray for Orlando, FL.
