    Lately

    Where do I begin?! In order to NOT write an essay I’m going to chose to report a few of the most relevant things in my life right now: 1) My sanity - I am sane again and in a much better place than early April . I had grown very stressed and fallen somewhat depressed if you remember. I haven’t been satisfied in my employment and it was taking over my life! Solution -...

    Road Trippin'

    In a few days I will travel many miles by car (with four AMAZING women) to see one of my all time favorite music artists…. Can you guess who she is?! I’ll give you a hint : After listening to her music, I feel like I can take on the world - AND WIN . *** Click image to enlarge/ find out who!

    We Did It!

    I have been accepted the University of Washington School of Social Work Master of Social Work Program. I will begin working toward my graduate degree this fall/ autumn. Think I'll look good as a Husky....? I apologize for having been MIA for a few days, weeks. I have known the news for one week and up to that date had been pretty stressed out about whether I would be accepted...

    Strong Black Woman and [Strong] White Man

    This is the answer to a question raised in my previous post: Another Pretty Girl Encounter: What Am I Attracted To? Pretty Girl 3 – I am thrilled with your question. When I read your question I grew excited because I absolutely love when people take what I have brought to the table to the next level! Can you be a STRONG BLACK woman and married to a white man – Absolutely....

    Nicki Minaj is like...

    A black girls' superhero - i <3 it! Google 'superheroes' ( Google images ) and tell me what you see - ain't nothing for me.. She's taking over the world. David Shields from Black Planet said, In American culture the most dangerous symbol, the most frightening symbol, for white people, is black men in love. The moment black men love each other, the United States is done for....

  6. I think I am actually excited to return to work! This is amazing! Happy Tuesday friends and fam - let me know how yours goes =) Who is he to me: Dr. Martin Luther King Junior was a rebel - broke every law to bring about equal, civil rights. Sat where he wasn't even wanted, went places they would have surely killed him and did things he was hurt very badly for because he wanted fair...

    Back 2 Mahogany

    In 2010 I stepped into church only once. Sometimes I wonder if this is why I lack the patience, understanding, and satisfaction I do. I notice that I am inquisitive, analytical, and self-driven but perhaps those things are not enough. Am I making sense....? I guess, as I seek to understand this world and my purpose in it, I wonder if I am ignoring what God has already made so - CLEAR. What...

    Opposites Attract

    we come from two different planets our worlds collided in mmvi and we clasped together like refrigerator magnets your celestial body is calling you and i can hardly stand it my sphere is calling me and you can hardly stand it we are somehow managing *** either destiny or beelzebub has caught up to us how powerful is love? Long Story Short, I Got Baggage!

  9. ....I walked to my bus stop to learn I had walked to the wrong stop. Impatient, I walked to the right stop even though I had already missed the bus. Then, zooming past me is a bus that stops at the wrong stop I was initially at but still gets me to the right place. Hence the title of this post: My Lack of Patience Never Really Got Me Anywhere Faster. SLAP.... Perhaps I should apply this...

  10. So I really like NM called Here I Am ( song is posted in my blog titled Friends are Overrated…. ) and there is this line that really stuck out to me: It's a joke, it's a game, Why am I still keeping score? I'm in pain, I'm ashamed I'm a woman, hear me roar I typed it (the bold text above) in Google which led me to Wiki and it turns out it is from a song by a female 70s...
