Mind your business, that’s all

I was on my way home from school this Friday, minding my business like I normally do you know nothing new. There was a girl, probably around my age who got on the bus, with her headphones in, also minding her business. When she stood up to leave her shirt had rolled up a little exposing her lower back and stomach. She was heavyset so it wasn’t hard to miss if you were looking in her direction. She stepped off the bus and as soon as the doors closed behind her there was a loud uproar of laughter. It was a condescending kind of lighter like “girl, now you know you dead wrong.” Continue reading


It’s been very difficult these last few months to find both the time and the will to write. I’ve been feeling a lot of stress lately which could have most likely been lessened by writing more frequently to release my thoughts. I’ve been trapped inside my mind with so many overwhelming, dream-crushing thoughts and I am currently at a point where I feel like I am beginning to be myself again. Continue reading

From temporary to permanent


Today I sat at my desk and it hit me that I’ve reached that point in my life where stability is most important. Just a year ago I was trying to find my purpose, my significance. Actually, I think I started that phase about two years ago. I picked up and moved six hours away from “home”. I don’t think I have 100% found myself. I have however really took the time to love myself and get to know the person I want to be. Today, I was texting one of my friends and she said she was going to quit her job and invest completely in herself. Normally, I would say go for it, but today was kind of different Continue reading

What are you afraid of?

My greatest fear in life is to not be happy. Happiness is contingent upon one’s willingness to overcome fear. For example, I want to graduate college with the highest honors(summa cum laude). I’m scared to reach that goal because that means I have to sacrifice so much time and dedicate so much energy to actually doing the work to earn the grade. I may procrastinate with taking the more difficult courses, or maybe even think about switching majors. Now think about this on a larger scale, life. Continue reading

2017: The Year of Me

I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions because I think they’re so cliche and just open-ended promises that nobody upholds. This year I tried something different and made a list of goals I wanted to reach for myself, either in my personal life or in school or work. I’ll list the goals I set for myself below and tell y’all why 2017 was a good year for me. Continue reading

Tattoo Therapy

For anyone that knows me or has ever seen any pictures of me, you would know that I absolutely love tattoos. I love art and I love to be able to share other people’s art on my body. I started getting tattoos when I turned 18 and each of them tells a story. Not only do think the feeling is relaxing, but I love to be able to release negative energy by filling in some blank skin with a new story. Continue reading

Now, for those that know me, my father didn’t “leave” physically but in every other aspect of the word, he left me. Please try to keep up as I walk yall through this mess of daddy issues I was blessed to have..*inserts rolling eyes emoji.. Continue reading

Th1rteen R3asons Why (Not)

Have you ever witnessed something so powerful that it literally makes you cry uncontrollably? I’m about eight months late but I just watched the saddest, most captivating series I have ever seen. Thirteen Reasons Why is an original Netflix series, executively produced by Selena Gomez, that premiered back in March 2017. If you haven’t watched it already, I advise you to stop reading this and go watch. Once you are moved to tears you can come back and continue reading. For those of you who have seen the series, I am hoping you feel the same as I do. My heart broke as I watched each episode and by the last episode of the series I was in full blown tears.

I’m going abroad! Well not yet..

I have always dreamed of traveling the world and experiencing different cultures. I was accepted into the University of Nicosia in Cyprus for the Spring 2018 semester. I am a junior Finance student at the North Carolina A&T State University. I am an Aggie Honors Scholar and a member of EDGE (Finance Honors society). I am a member of the Charm City Aggies organization on campus where we participate in various community outreach events throughout the semester. Continue reading

Out with the old..

It’s been soooo long since I’ve posted and I would like to apologize. The last few weeks of my life have been so hectic, all to say that now the storm is over. Well one storm is over, my life is never too calm for too long. Good news, I’m back in school and I moved into my apartment. I also just had a birthday last week so I’m a little more mature lol. But seriously, I wanted to write something super inspiring due to my recent defeat.

The Wire

As a high school senior, I just knew my grades and my test scores would set me apart from some many other candidates when I got to college. They make it seem like it’s going to be a breeze, but they lied. I am entering my junior year of high school and it is getting more and more difficult to fund my education. I love my school and I’ve never been happier, however, I simply can’t afford it. I planned my entire junior and senior year in terms of what I wanted to accomplish and what I wanted to see happen for myself. Those dreams may not be so attainable for me at this point. Continue reading

8 of Pentacles- Reversed

Recently, I decided to tap into the world of astrology and palmistry. I got a tarot card reading and it helped me realize so many things about myself. I’m going through a rough stage right now and I felt like I just didn’t know what to do. I normally am not one to believe in or even read my horoscope or anything like that but this time I wanted to give it a try. Continue reading

Mixed Feelings

Of course I have to talk about this. Race is such a hot button issue that often times it gets difficult to even get through a conversation about it. Luckily for me, I have my own blog and I get to say whatever I want without being interrupted or talked over. Many people, if not all, should know by now that I am mixed. My mother is Italian and Irish and my father is fully Jamaican. Growing up, race was not talked about or as controversial as it has grown to become. I had a few instances where I noticed people acting odd towards me but as a child you don’t pay that kind of behavior any mind. However, the older I get the more I find myself needing to “check” some of the ignorance that exists among my peers, and sometimes elders. Continue reading

Strategize, persevere, and dominate: A Guide to Finding Your Motivation

Okay, so I figured it was that time again when everyone could use a little motivation. I’ve found it increasing difficult to find that drive to do just about anything that I am supposed to do. I don’t even want to do the things I find fun anymore. These days I find myself either watching a bunch of reality show reruns or fighting my sleep to scroll through my Instagram feed. My life is sad, yes, I am aware. Continue reading


Image result for pray for baltimore

Last night I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and I kept seeing posts about this one girl who died earlier that day. Her face was familiar to me because she was “IG famous” and she was on my explore page every single day. She was super young from what I understood-early 20s- but was very well-known throughout the city. Of course I had so many questions about what happened, was it even true, how did she die. I kept scrolling and clicking until I found answers to my questions. She had been shot and killed near her home. It didn’t end there. That wasn’t even half of the horrific story. Continue reading


Time after time I find myself settling for what I know is less than I deserve. That is with everything- jobs, grades, friendships, and especially relationships. I don’t if it’s because of the extreme laziness I suffer from, of the lack of motivation but I am almost always just settling. I want to know why. I am really trying to excel in many facets of my life but I can’t do that if I don’t recognize and address my issues.

Ready? Because this is going to go from a cute little blog post to like my real life, every day, personal issues.. Continue reading

“Never give them your power”

The other day I had a really bad day at work. I’ve been working at this nice restaurant for about 4 years now. It was my first real job ever and I’ve felt at home for the duration of my employment. I was hired to do one job but of course I ended up switching and learning many roles in the restaurant. Recently, I’ve felt unappreciated by the “new” management. I absolutely love working there and I love the owners and my manager. There are a few managers and employees, however, that can be disrespectful and just plain rude. Continue reading
