Update on My Life

  Here lately, I’ve been doing a check up on my life after college.  I did a “What My Life is Like A Year after College Graduation?” and a “What My Life is Like 2 Years After College Graduation?” But now, I just want to give an update as to What My Life is Like, point blank period. LOL. What’s New? So, as you all know I had relocated from LA to Owensboro, KY.  I was a Hall Director at one school and  a graduate assistant at another school that was an hour away and three days out of the…

Self-Care or Escapism

Inspired by the Friend Zone podcast, today’s blog post is about the topic of Self Care vs. Escapism.  Is it really self-care when we decide to binge watch TV Shows on Netflix or Hulu or are we just avoiding the real world? What is even the different between Self-Care and Escapism? How do you know if you’ve turned your self-care into escapism? For me, self-care are things I do in order to take care of myself: getting my hair done, getting my nails or eyebrows done, shopping, reading a book, going for a brisk walk or to the gym, removing…

Social Media Addict

Why am I posting this? Is it to impress you or myself? What if I don’t break 100 likes? Am I ugly? Why do y’all delete pictures? And then repost it at a different time like I didn’t see it 2 hours ago when it only generated 10 likes? Do the amount of followers matter? Why follow to unfollow? Numbers matter that much to you? Why are you buying followers? Am I pretty? Am I interesting? She’s an Instgram model? Why can’t I be perfect like her? Do she really live like that? Or do she close the app and…

Woman Crush Wednesday

This week’s Woman Crush Wednesday is the beautiful Symphani Soto. I found her because I follow Skye Townsend on Twitter and Fenty Beauty posted a tweet about how they were looking for models and to reply back with pictures.  Well, Symphani replied back with her photos and Skye Towsend liked her tweet and she popped up on my timeline and I immediately fell in love with her beauty.  I just had to go find her on Instagram.  I found her and she was more beautiful than what I thought. She is a YouTube beauty specialist and does vlog entries on…

Double Dutch Bus

For this Monday’s topic, I wanted to talk about Elementary, Middle and High School.  I have a list of questions that I have answered and want you guys to answer about your experience in grade school (K – 12). 1.  Who was your favorite teacher? My favorite teacher in middle school, was my math teacher.  His name was Mr. Otis.  He had slight anger problems, but you can tell he truly cared about his students and wanted what was best for us! 2. Who was your least favorite teacher? OMG, so during our 8th grade, we had gotten a new teacher. …

Nobody Wants to Hire Me, Norma

Today, I want to talk about Mental Health.  Now, I am no expert in this subject and had to do extensive research on mental health. Today’s topic stems from Tyrese and his recent appearance in the news. To try to make a long story short,  Tyrese has been in legal battles with his ex-wife Norma over their 10 year old daughter.  Tyrese has recently decided to be intimate with social media and air all of his business out.  Now I am a firm believer in keeping your private life off of social media, especially things that should not be put…

James St. Patrick

According to urbandictionary.com, ghosting is the act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date.  This is done in hopes that the ghost will just “get the hint” and leave the subject alone, as opposed to the subject simply telling them he/she is no longer interested. Have you ever been ghosted and/or ghosted someone? If so, why? What would have done differently? What was the outcome? I have ghosted a couple of people before, but I have only been ghosted once so I’ll start with how I’ve been ghosted before story.…

Artist Spotlight: H.E.R.

Y’all.  The artist I want to spotlight this week is H.E.R.  If y’all have not listened to this album, Vol. 2, I suggest you immediately stop reading this blog post and go listen to it now!  I love H.E.R., her voice and her authenticity.  I have not heard Vol. 1 and am currently looking for it.  It’s probably on SoundCloud, but I haven’t downloaded it yet.  I remember before I started listening to her, I saw a tweet about how somebody finally found a picture of her and that she was beautiful and nobody understood why she doesn’t want anybody…
