This week’s lesson is less about what I learned about me this week … And more about what I learned about the world.

In fact, I wrote a whole blog about this light bulb moment last year, called … Continue reading My Struggle, My Identity, My Life is NOT FOR SALE!
I had a hell of a year! I completed a development program. Applied for some grants. Made a lot of art (who would have thunk it). Got this blog up and running.

So how we approach parenting can be hard … and lonely. Because before we’re … Continue reading The LadyWrites82 Presents: The People Series — Episode 1: Motherhood
Le sigh … Azealia … Banks … Double Le sigh! Why the respiratory distress about this young lady? Because I have a love/”hate” thing going with Ms. Banks.

But I cannot stand some of the things that come out of her mouth … … Continue reading Giving the Medicine with the Candy: Unwinding Azealia Banks and this “Wild ‘n Out” Fiasco
Throughout the last two weeks, celebrity Twitter fingers have been twittering, Shade Rooms have been shade rooming, and Instastories have been storying … and while I just made some of those verbs up, one thing that doesn’t live in the land of make believe is the domestic violence accusations flying around between Nicki Minaj and … Continue reading Giving the Medicine with the Candy: The Nicki Vs.
