for those of you who did not know, I recently got seriously into web design (within the last 6-8 months). and...well... these months and 6 websites later, I am ready to officially proclaim myself a capable web designer. check out my site (uploaded just this morning)... some of the links are still misfiring and not all of the links work yet but it should all be worked out shortly.

my formal business site is at check this one out thoroughly to get to know my services.

my most recent client was (obviously all links work on hers. It's just my own site that I am sleeping on.)

anyway, should you find yourself in need of a capable web designer (or graphic designer in general) give me a shout. and don't hesitate to refer clients as well. (i'm carpe dieming!)

mad love and DEEP THANKS to
AMANDA JOHNSTON for mentoring me as a quasi-programmer!

I guess that's it for now. I am blogging and myspacing so if you want to be friends or keep up socially, I'm there. ( and otherwise, I am designing and writing and writing and designing.

always love,
shia shabazz

it's a great weekend to live in austin!!!

write that one down in your records cuz i'm not sure how many times you'll hear me saying that with such enthusiasm. (okay, that's not true. post-summer... for the 3 weeks it's actually below 90 degrees, i DO, in fact, REALLY like austin.)

for me, things have been quite chaotic. many ups, some downs. the ebb and flow of life, i guess. friends seem to be coming and going but love (close and/or distant) remains. (yes, this is cryptic. no need for specifics this time, lovelies. my purpose here is not to vent or lament.) here is info about a few events happening this weekend. the kids and i are going to make the 2 plays (Insha-Allah). and with sweetiebubu's band mates, jubu and carl, playing in town with maze (feat. frankie beverly, of course), GOTTA go!

finally, a thought... (as posted on my myspaceblog... "if you cannot see the beauty in every person you encounter, don't pity them, pity yourself."

wishing you wealth,
