She stumbled on my porch; slurring her words, and dang near foaming at the mouth. And while this may sound like an introduction to my next zombie thriller, I’m actually describing my Friday night. And this person I’m talking about is a friend of my neighbor. I compare her to a mosquito; she comes around … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: An Addicts Story
We’re about to have a very layered conversation … … One that is filled with nuisance … And perspective, but we’re going to have it anyway, damn it, because: 1. It’s how I feel. 2. I think there are many others out there that may feel the same way. 3. It’s my blog, so … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: I’m a F*&# Unicorn!!!!
As usual, there I was minding my entire black ass business when this week’s blog topic came to me while listening to a podcast. This particular podcast is called Ear Hustle, a weekly show based in San Quentin that “brings you the stories of life inside prison, shared and produced by those living it.” While this … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: Dirty Water
“I’m there for everyone else, but no one is there when I need them.” While those exact words may not have been used, I’ve seen this sentiment run across my timeline a lot in the last week. I guess it stuck out because I know how that feels … And apparently you guys do too. … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: Y’all Selfish AF?!?!?!
I’m flawed, but still dope AF. We all are. While last week’s blog focused on how dope I/we are, this week’s is focusing on all of the things I don’t know. *insert semi-sad face It all started last week when I reached out to my mom – Yes, I talk about my mom a lot … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: I Literally Have No Idea What I’m Doing
Let me make one thing clear. I aint &*#@! And while that may sound self-deprecating, it kind of isn’t in this context. All I’m saying is that I’m still getting it together … and will always be … because there will always be room for improvement (I mean, that’s what this blog is all about). … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: Sometimes You Just Shine Too Bright – Don’t Dim Your Light
Social media is a gift and a curse! I just wanted to throw that out there first to keep us on track. I promise we’ll come back to it. Every week I tell myself “I’m going to write about this next week”, but the week unfolds and something else comes to mind, so at this … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: I’m Under the Influence
I’m the baby of the family. I’ve always been a high achiever academically; never had to work real hard to get good grades in school. I don’t believe in mediocrity. I’ve always been the type to make goals, smash them, and then move on to the next one. These may seem like self-appreciating, yet insignificant … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: I, Too, Can Catch These Hands
There is love and then there is love. The word is the same, but two very distinct and individual experiences, as the depth of love is limitless. You meet a boy or a girl or whatever your heart desires. You spend hours talking. You learn their likes and dislikes; what makes them laugh; what … Continue reading Do You Choose to Love?
I’m an average American. I get up every morning, shower, dress, make coffee, and head out the door (sometimes ten minutes late) to start my day. I sit in traffic, drop the kids off, and make it to work in time to check emails, run reports, and attend meetings. You know, normal stuff.While the term … Continue reading What is Normal?
