So fun fact about me: my biggest insecurity is probably my weight. Not a day goes by that I don't wish I was smaller or in better shape. I've come to appreciate the platform that my blog provides me with and I have no qualms sharing my ups and downs (sometimes literally) with you. Which … Continue reading Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls
I've got a confession to make. I'm a sports fan. I may not be able to tell you with precision what's happening on a court, diamond, or gridiron, but boy do I love watching them. They make stuff happen and they make it look so effortless. I'm also an actor. I can tell you when … Continue reading Hey Now – You’re an Allstar
I've been thinking about writing this particular post for a while. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I figured now would be the perfect time to do so. I was inspired a month or two ago when Eminem dropped the cypher heard 'round the world. Immediately after, people were preparing his plate at the cookout. Now … Continue reading I got beans, greens, potatos, tomatos….But do you?
Well...it has officially been one month since I moved New York City (by way of Jersey City). I would be lying if I said I didn't cry at all, though to be fair, I think we all knew that it was to be expected. 4 weeks is not enough time to say that I'm a … Continue reading These Are My Confessions (November, Pt.1)
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
