It’s about that time…

I was looking back at all my blog posts so far and I can proudly say the growth is evident. My pride is based on humble intentions, the credit does not belong to me, we give thanks to the most High for providing me with the tools to tap into my full potential. I am …

But, sometimes, you just want to be held.

Whether you're in between relationships, in a long distance relationship, or never been with someone before, have you ever had that longing to just be held? Not even anything sexual just a good ol' cuddle session where you could fall asleep in their arms feeling the warmth. Well, I'm headed into my fifth month out …

“I’m just a soul whose intentions are good.” — Nina Simone

This post took me much longer than I anticipated, to write, because of how much these words mean to me. I wrote, read then reread and wrote again. Finally, here it is... I’ll never forget the moment that I dropped religion. It was two years ago, during my last year of my undergrad. I took …

I’m Trying to be Strong.

I’m trying so hard. I want to be strong for you, and especially for myself. I want to detach, I don’t want to miss you or want you. I’m trying really hard to understand you and everything I need to understand and as much clarity as I'm getting is as much sorrow as it brings …

I am black. My hair is versatile—but, I’m not my hair!

The feeling is that you can't change your hair as much as you may like to because you risk getting the awkward questions at the office. No, I don't want to stand here for 6 minutes describing how I get my hair to do that. Or, seeing you try and hide your surprise at why …

Something along the lines of, “don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

HEARTBREAK. I don’t know one person who hasn’t experienced it. The difference between me and you is that I’m choosing to share my experience-- so no judgement. I think for me what makes it hurt the most is how unexpected it was. One minute you’re on the same page, or you think you’re on the same …

Well, I graduated… now what?

One minute you're pulling all nighters cramming for exams and writing copious amounts of research papers. The next you're walking across a stage accepting a piece of paper that confirms you have completed the last four years to the institution's liking and are then released out into "the real world". For me, I had a …

I’m new to this…work with the kid.

Finally, after much deliberation and dwelling in my fears I have decided to step out of my comfort zone to write my first blog post. I've never been one to share all the contents of my personal life on social media; however, I believe that a balance can be achieved. That being said, I do …
