I compiled this list because sometimes I get complacent. Because even though I actively choose not to live in fear, the people on this list remind me that I cannot be so naïve. Because even if I remain aware, the next time a name is added (and I pray one isn't added) that I'm not … Continue reading Say my name
Hello friends! It's that time of the week again where I share what's been weighing heavy on my heart. And this time around, along with my 'confessions', I thought I would share a little bit about who I am as well. It dawned on me today while I was at work that I haven't really … Continue reading These are my confessions (July, Part 3)
I'm starting to notice a theme here....and I'm not talking about the titles of my post. I've always been a slightly awkward person, and a residual side effect is that sometimes I tend to watch how other people interact versus actually interacting with them. Almost like a little alien keeping a journal on human socialization … Continue reading You Can’t Sit With Us: The Mandate and Enforcement of Respectability Politics
We like to perform so when we are around one another, it just sets off a chain reaction of events and before you know it, you're staging a gender reversal version of Chicago in someone's living room, complete with choreography and voice parts. So unfortunately, I have not been able to locate Jimmy Hoffa's body … Continue reading These Are My Confessions (July, Part 2)
Ginuwine and I are on the same wavelength....And by those jeans, I mean my jeans. They're getting pretty tight...and not in a good way. I'm preparing for a show and I stumbled upon a picture that shed an interesting light on where I'm at in my fitness journey. Now maybe it just wasn't the most … Continue reading Is There Any More Room For Me In Those Jeans?
*I understand that this title references a song from the eighties. I chose it for two reasons. 1) I have a more limited knowledge of 90s R&B than I thought (actually, it's more like I can never think of the name of the song I'm trying to reference when it comes time to pick a … Continue reading Voices Carry
If you know me, you know that I'm a nerd for musical theatre. I'm living in a musical in my head right this second. If you're on the same wavelength as me then you're probably familiar with a little production on Broadway called Dear Evan Hansen; it won a Tony or two this year. For … Continue reading These Are My Confessions… (July, Part 1)
I've been writing a lot about me and my own thoughts about life and love blah blah blah.... Thank you all for being there as I make my way through the inner working of my mind. This week, I want to turn the focus back to theatre. My career is an interesting one is that … Continue reading Can we paint with all the colors of the wind?
Last week, I wrote an entry about my thoughts on love and relationships. There are a few lingering ones out there. Most recently, I've been seeing a lot of posts on social media urging women to "find a good man." Well....why does that seem to be the only thing people are urging women - in … Continue reading I Just Wanna Be All Alone…: Why Can’t I be Single In Peace?
