There are more gems hiding away in this little midwest nugget than there are adorning the royal crown. That's a fact. So in case you haven't heard, I'm moving. I've been so busy packing and saying goodbye to friends that I haven't had time to say what may be one of my most important goodbyes. … Continue reading Well I’m Not Gon’ Cry
*Editor's Note: I'm pretty sure you can guess what this post is going to be about just from looking at the featured image. I would be remiss if I did not tell you that I was initially a little hesitant to write and then post this. I'm by no means an expert on race relations … Continue reading I Wanna Be Down
Hey lovelies! I'm so sorry I've been MIA for soooo long. I've been in the middle of a move and contrary to what movie montages will have you believe, the process was NOT seamless. In order to focus on the move and make sure that I had everything together, I wound up taking a break … Continue reading I’m……Movin’ Out
So....Are we going to do that awkward thing where we pretend like we've been living under a rock for the last three days and haven't seen the news? I hope not. We're so much better than that. I adhere to the belief that it's best not to give my energy to those matters that will … Continue reading What if God Was One of Us?
Honestly, I can't complain. I've been busting my butt to bring my 2nd grade career goal to life O.....m.....g......We're not even at the halfway point in August, and I'm already pooped. I needed to take a break last week from my weekly writing schedule just to catch my breath. But I'm back. Honestly, I can't … Continue reading I’m a B****…..But that’s cool right?
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?
