Living Up to My Purpose

So last year my word of the year was ‘unapologetic’ because I grew extremely tired of being scared of other’s people’s opinions and came out my shell more than ever before. I never thought I could put myself out there on a personal level on the internet. I mean I have made YouTube videos before but I guess being more active on Instagram and having a whole website to myself felt more personal. Maybe because I have to promote my…

The Company You Keep

I’m sure we’ve all heard of the phrase, “Birds of a feather flock together.” As I have been maturing and getting older, I have come to really understand what that phrase means. I’ve started realizing how important it is for me, as a young person to align myself with people who have the same ideals and drive as me. via GIPHY From experience, I know that constantly spending your time with people who aren’t as ambitious as I am can…

Year 20.

This year for me has been all about mental growth, confidence, stepping out of my comfort zone and being unapologetic, but I have to say I don’t know about anyone else, but in the days leading up to my 20th birthday I was feeling very anxious and even trying to free write this post was almost making me feel anxious as well. I guess that could turn into another post once I get my thoughts clear. But in the mean…

Journal Entry 4: 10/09/18

I know this notebook is solely meant for my book notes but this is a journal entry because I need it to be and want it to be. I am currently sitting on the stairs across from the library at my school. Usually I like to write in complete silence. I feel like it helps me focus better, helps my writing flow better, make more sense, but today is the first time I’m trying something different by sitting outside hearing…

Why the Butterfly is Symbolic to Me

I chose to use butterflies and ever since then I’ve  basically been obsessed with anything butterfly. My graduation cap This might just be the shortest post ever on my blog because the reason why I fell in love with butterflies is pretty straightforward. So let me just get into it. I feel like…

Transparency Moment (Free Write) / Journal Entry #3

Lately I have been learning a lot about myself. This post is going to be very transparent. In the love portion of my first life update I briefly touched on why I was planning to stay single. I basically said that if I couldn’t nurture myself how could I nurture anyone else? Now what I’ve realized lately is, this theme is EXTREMELY prominent in my life and it always has been. Last year (2016-2017) was a very hard year for…

Spontaneous Trip to the Bookstore ft Thoughts on Being the Only Black Girl

So lately I’ve been having an itch to write stories again. Yes, when I was younger I used to enjoy writing short stories. I sort of have an idea for the one that I want to write but I feel like my writing skills need a little touching up before I just dive in. So I’ve been wanting to purchase a book with some prompts to spark my creativity. I was going to just order one online but class was…

#CurlFest 2018 !!!

My first experience at Curl Fest was definitely a lot of fun. There were some minor adjustments that could’ve been made to the event to make it flow smoother, but overall it was fun-filled with creative energy and black girl magic. Everyone’s curls and outfits were on point as well; the vibes were just amazing the whole time. BUT I did wish the sun would’ve came out. As far as vendors go, WOW, my people are extremely talented. I purchased…
