ladies and gentlemen, lemme introduce what on earth 'krump' is..
wahaha, after some research, well..... here is what i found out.

*Krumping is relatively new urban street dance-form that began in South Central Los Angeles and is characterized by free, expressive, and highly energetic moves involving the arms and chest. It has become a major part of hip hop dance culture.

*Krump is one of the dance style similar in form and practice to traditional weapon dances, and for this reason is considered by many African-American krumpers to be symbolic of, or referential to, their tribal roots. Dance "battling," a form of dance where competitors face-off in a direct and aggressive competition, is an integral component of krump in a similar way to the earlier breakdance battles, with "dissing" (mocking), and heightened moments of frantic, aggressive arm and chest movements (known as "buck" moves) being common.

and this is the cool part....it even has CHRISTIAN ELEMENT!

*For many participants there is a strong Christian spiritual element to the dance.
"Tight Eyez", a key early figure and now krump teacher, regularly speaks of Christian healing and gives praise to Jesus for the upbringing of this movement. The backronym "Kingdom Radically Uplifting Mighty Praise" is now often used by him, and this usage has spread widely.

*Krump families stick together, because being in a Krump family makes up for everything youths don't have in the ghetto, and gives them a safe place to thrive outside of gang life.

*Krump even has its own language, with words such as:
  • Get Buck: means to step up your moves a notch. You must be able to do this to succeed in a battle.
  • Get Amped: The next level of intensity. Movements should be off the hook, and off the walls.
  • Beasty: aggressive and beastlike
  • Goofy: animated and comedic krump
  • Hipolymer: copy cats who steal moves
  • Labbin: practicing tricks for a battle
  • Kill off: a combination of moves that end a battle, like the grand finale.
  • New Bootie: Some one new to Krump

God can't use me or at least shouldn't use me. We've probably all thought it at some point. However, studying the Bible shows us that many flawed people were used by God in powerful ways. They were just as unqualified as you. So now what's your excuse?

haha...its been about 1 solid month since i updated this blog!
sorry bout it...been packed with exams, projects and assignments!

here's smth i want to share.

Leadership and Self-Deception
Getting out of the Box

Self deception actually determines one's experience in every
aspect of life.
The extent to which it does tht...
it can be the central issue of leadership.

It blonds us to the true cause of problems, n once blinded,
all the "solutions" we can think of will actually
make matters worst.

That's why self-deception is so central to leadership
bcuz leadership is about making matters better!

To the extent we are self-deceived, our leadership is undermine at every
turn.




Your Relationship With God
Dr Gary Smalley

Here are some quotes from him..

"While we were teaching others how to have effective relationships,
our own relationships were being tested to the core."

"Our purpose as human beings is rooted in relationships:
Loving God, loving ourselves, and loving others."

"Because i know firsthand what happens when i make decisions in a vacuum
apart from God, i now make a point
to talk all day long with him about everything.
He is involved in all my daily decisions."

"For many years of my ministry, i was too impatient to
wait for God. I forgot what
it was like to live with God's abiding peace;
i only knew what it felt like to be driven or ruled by stress."

"Seek Godly counsel in decision making.
Take time for decisions to "settle".
Pay attention to "checks" in your spirit.
Don't move forward without the peace of God."




will update in time to come..
