POC: KEEP THAT SAME ENERGY

What’s going on y’all! It’s been a while, and a lot has been going on since. Usually, I won’t delve into the matters of the world, but honestly, I’m just sick of it. As many of you know, I’m an advocate for racial justice and equal rights, which is why I am so passionate about […]

SOLO TRIP: AMATEUR EXPERIENCE

Fresh off the plane, your girl is back! Let’s get into this solo trip, shall we? As of lately, the thought of traveling solo had been on my mind. Not because I was sick of traveling with other people, but because I wanted to experience something on my own that was completely out of my […]

OH LOOK, A RED FLAG!

Red flags. We’ve all seen them, and we’ve all walked right past them. Why is it that we get so infatuated with a person that we completely ignore all negative and toxic traits? Yet if we’re looking at it from the outside in, there would be no way that we’d settle for that sh*t. Alright, […]

ITS ALL ABOUT U

The past weekend I decided to have a day for me, not just a day to treat myself but a day to say no and do ultimately whatever I wanted to do. Simply meaning, no favors, no answering calls/texts that I didn’t want to answer (aka keeping the phone on Do Not Disturb), and doing […]

LETS TALK:

Therapy. What’s the first thing you think of when someone says that word? Usually, we tie the words therapy or counseling into the same categories as crazy or psychotic. In my last post, I mentioned I’d be touching on therapy, especially how it’s seen in communities of color. We see it as a ‘white thing’, […]

OFF BALANCE – EMOTIONS

I’ve been feeling off balance lately, more so on a roller-coaster. Career-wise, emotionally, and spiritually. Getting thrown off balance can make you feel more anxious than usual, you may be wanting to isolate yourself and just sleep, or you may even be falling into a slight state of depression. Doing so, we don’t realize how […]

WHAT’S DOWNSTAIRS ISN’T TABOO: FEM HYGIENE

Ladies, the obstacles of womanhood are far more than break-ups, child bearing, bra shopping, or finding the right companion. Besides trying to break the glass ceiling, make six figures, build a business, and possibly write a book – we all have that ONE disturbance (no, I’m not talking about a man), but Mother Nature. Something […]

TOXICITY

Toxicity, the quality of being toxic or poisonous. Sometimes we ignore the signs of toxicity in our own life. Maybe because we’re blinded emotionally or financially. A lot of the time we push ourselves to be better or to fix our self in a toxic situation. What can I do to fix this? Or, I […]

DATING IS JADED

Dating, wherein this generation you don’t know if you’re dating, talking, talk-talking, or in a relationship. For most of us, we’re in a situationship or something that’s complicated. It’s to the point where for me, it’s just getting annoying. This continuous cycle that leads us nowhere is frustrating more than annoying. Yes, you meet people […]

20-SOMETHING

There’s something about being in your 20’s. It’s like you want to have it all together (and are sometimes expected to have it all together) but you also are falling apart faster than a game of Jenga. From surviving college and trying to live your best life, while handing in a 15-page paper the next […]
