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…

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

At the end of my senior year of high school, my friends and I were on the hunt for the perfect supplies to personalize our graduation caps. 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…
