Early Morning Disturbances

The only thing I heard was, “I take care of my kids!” All I could think was, “It’s too early for this. Hey man, I’m trying to sleep.” Because of Daylight’s Saving and how dark it is in the morning, I figured it was earlier than 6:45am on a weekday. Regardless, it was too early […]

Date Applicants

I’ve been a good sport this summer/fall and played with the scene long enough. The grind for 2017 starts now. I don’t think I’ve mastered the ability to juggle digging head first into my work…and entertaining guys who want a boat load of my time. Or maybe it’s just not possible and people’s lives are […]

Building Whose Kingdom?

Ever since I was a young girl, I had my own dreams, my own hopes, my own goals. I saw my dad tell my mom that she didn’t have to work and he would take care of everything. I didn’t understand how a woman could keep herself occupied, more so keep her mind occupied by […]

Is Havana Ready For Americans?

Havana, well Cuba in general, has been closed off to Americans for a while…decades. Year after year countries in Europe, South America, etc. have been able to enjoy Havana as a vacation destination. Tension with Fidel and the U.S. government resulted in Americans not being able to come over, per United States law. As an […]

Stop Explaining Yourself

Stop explaining to others about why you’re not married or don’t have any kids! I’m writing this as a 25 year old who is single and childless. Everyone doesn’t have the same goals in life, isn’t on the same time frame as the masses, or simply is 100% content. The older I get I see […]

Suffocate

I was writing a PR draft and listening to music. For some reason I wanted to listen to J. Holiday. “Suffocate” came on and I started singing my little heart out. The lyrics go something like this:   I can’t breathe when you talk to me I can’t breathe when you’re touchin’ me I suffocate […]

Eating ≠ Working Out

It is just not enough hours in the day to work out to keep the body that I want. How do I know or am I just being a lazy bum? Oh, I know. After countless number of hills, stairs and steps…I achieved a physique I didn’t think I would be able to accomplish in […]

Don’t Let Your Youth Pass You By

Today is the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be again. ― Eleanor Roosevelt. If you knew me, you’d know that I’m a homebody. My bedtime is 11pm; my eyelids just seem to give up on me around that time lol. During my college years, you couldn’t get me in the bed […]

Like vs. Want vs. In Like vs. Love

My producer friend on Facebook wrote a status that got me thinking. I never even thought about it like that. It wrote:   To like someone means you enjoy their company or who they are. To want someone means you like em enough to take on the issues and responsibilities that come with them, and […]

Why I Don’t Lend Out Money

I’m not rich by any means. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon. I’ve never really struggled either because I learned from my dad how to budget, and when that money is about to run out…how to make things stretch. The homie God also knows how to make a way out of no way. At […]

Hurt: Letting Go vs. Getting Let Go

Hurt hurts right? But which one hurts more; letting someone go because you don’t want to hurt them…or getting let go because the person doesn’t want to hurt you? The crazy part about all of this is that everyone gets hurt in the end. I’ll explain later. But this topic came to me after watching […]

What You Want You Can’t Afford

Fly outs are so real huh? You really like him/her huh? But can you afford it…huh? Money. Does money matter? To an extent, yes. Money isn’t everything but you surely can be screwed without it. I’ve traveled around the world. I’ve met tons of guys and exchanged social media information in order to stay in […]

Being a Supportive Mate

I’ve never had a guy support me as much, or even more than I have supported him. As women, we are known to be the cheerleaders. To whoop and holler in the stands for not only our mates, our children, our friends, even our animals lol. I know I have made posters for my male […]

Do You Talk To Yourself? I Do!

I was getting ready and I heard my sister say, “Are you talking to yourself?” Well yes…yes I was, and wasn’t ashamed at all. She mentioned how people usually whisper when they’re talking to themselves, but oh not I; I was talking on a normal level. If this was 2 years ago, I would deny […]

Familiarity: The Time It Takes To Let Go

I haven’t written a relationship type blog in yearsssss, considering the fact that I haven’t liked anyone in years. Writing is the only thing that I’ve noticed that allows me to let it leave my mind completely. So here I go (it’s 6,808 words, so don’t read it if you have something to do or […]
