Two Days in Bangkok

I'll admit when I got to Thailand it took some getting used to because I was alone. My last two trips were with counterparts so this is my first fully solo trip since Bali. Thankfully it's kind of like riding a bike after so long. At first you are a bit wobbly but then it's …

“Adulting”, How to Deal, Episode 8, Black and Abroad

I don't know about you but I sometimes seek a gauge to compare my adult life for reassurance that I'm not effing up. There, i said it! Lol! I can't help but feel like there is a standard imposed on how my life should look right now or at any given moment. This feeling sucks …

Cohabitation as a Congolese Woman, Episode 4

In this next episode I discuss my experience living with my last boyfriend. My Congolese culture does not condone cohabitation before marriage so my family was not in support of this decision. However, I'm glad I did it and I'm sharing advice to others who maybe considering it. I believe we should do the things …

Visiting home after a year abroad…

The Chuseok holiday (Korean Thanksgiving) this year gave me about 12 days off from work so I took the time to go back to North America. To say it was so nice being home is an understatement. It really didn't hit me until I got back, and was surrounded by family and friends, how much …

Another year older, wiser, faster, stronger !

So I turned 28 on Saturday. Yay!! As they say, you're only as old as you feel-- and I'd say I feel 28. Lol! The month leading up to my bornday I did a tally, of all my accomplishments, in my 27th year and I am glad to see growth. My focus, since graduating from …

10 months loc’d, this is my journey …

When i decided to start my loc journey I never could have anticipated the confidence and freedom it would bring. I think at first I was mostly focused on just getting past the dreaded "ugly stage" where it's hard to say what's going on, on your head. Lol! I'm happy to say, the "ugly stage" …

Emancipate yourself so you may grow. 

I was raised in a large family. Mom, dad, four brothers and two sisters. I'm the second youngest, out of all my siblings, but the youngest girl. I've noticed that I sometimes struggle to maintain a balance between living for my family and living for myself. The norm for me has been to allow my family's …

Bali was beautiful and somewhat overrated.

As expected, Bali was beautiful. I had a few days off the first week of May, also known as golden week here in Korea, so I broke the bank back in February purchasing my plane ticket and accommodations. Flights from Korea, at that time, were much more expensive because of the holiday. I was in Bali …
