How Depression Took Over My Life for 3 Months

Life Update #2

In my last life update I said that I was going to try and transfer locations because I wasn’t comfortable with the amount of drama that was going on at my job. Since then, I’ve became a bit more comfortable there because I’ve gotten to know my co workers a little better and I’m starting to understand personalities. I do have my days where I just want to quit, but serving is an extremely high stress job, so I mean…

My life is always on go, go, go and I DESERVE a vacation. I’ve accomplished so many things, crossed so many milestones and that was it. I was overjoyed for a hot minute and then it would be time to snap…

She’s Black: Misty Copeland

In my last post titled “Blogging for 9 Months Now” I told you all that I would be introducing a new category that would highlight the accomplishments of black women. The first woman that I decided to highlight has been an inspiration to me for years. As soon as I came up with the idea to introduce this category I knew she would, without a doubt, be the first woman I write about. Since I used to dance ballet, it…

Blogging for 9 Months Now?

I’ve been blogging for 9 months now and I have to say I haven’t made much progress numbers wise. If you go back to one of my previous posts about my most frequently asked questions, you know that numbers are not really a big deal to me because I genuinely enjoy doing this and my blog could act as a portfolio for future employers. But really it is a bit discouraging because employers and brands do care a lot about…
