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.Read More »

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.Read More »

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.Read More »

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.Read More »

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.Read More »


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..Read More »

“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.Read More »
