Here goes something new. I’ll admit I was a little uncomfortable reacquainting myself with a camera. Knowing it would capture my new adult body a little less forgivingly. Knowing that I’m still writing and rewriting my definition of sexy on an etch-a-sketch.
I’ve got a bad case of the twenty-somethings. Specifically the late twenties. There’s fire burning under my butt 🔥🍑, yet it’s too hot to feel. This book called out to me. Maybe Robin Marantz Henig has the answers. Maybe no one does. Read more… Continue reading 20-Something: Young Adults Seem Stuck

If you’ve ever taken a look inside a book, you owe someone a “thank you”. That someone is LeVar Burton. For so many, on so many Saturdays, he and the Public Broadcast Station took us to far flung locales and caught us up in people and plots. LeVar Burton is a Time Lordt. Afro-futurism and Negus Passed all wrapped up into one chocolatey ageless package. Continue reading Levar Burton: Reading Rainbow Bae

Grateful for every moment and looking forward to the next. Brimming with wisdom and contentment given all that they’ve seen. I am 26. Newly 26, and I make a hissing sound every time I have to … Continue reading I’m a Senior Citizen.
Sometimes we have a hard time putting ourselves in the fancifully-decorated boots of others. That’ll make sense later. We side-eye the traditions of other cultures and forget that essentially, we are all the same. We don our respective apparel, and forget that somewhere else, someone is preparing for a yearly shindig of their own. Mine is carnival. Caribbean carnival, and particularly the one that takes … Continue reading Comic-con vs Carnival
