January is the start of the New Year, but January’s have always been kind of blah for me. For me September was always the month of change and new beginnings, most of my new chapters turned in September. It was in September that I moved out of the comfort and safety of my mom’s house at the young age of 16 to live on my own in Kingston, Jamaica.
Let’s talk about marriage for a while, marriage is a little different than regular relationships in the sense that people are no longer hoping that this person marries them or spends the rest of their life with them. Marriage is the end of the movie where the credits start rolling, it’s the happy ending. However the thing is after the credits start rolling when the movie is over and when the actors go back to their regular lives, sometimes dealing with the fame that comes from the
I have two stories to tell both of them happened within 24 hours of each other. This world can be one of the coldest places in the galaxy, but buried within it are good people. A couple days ago I was in a store (as usual), the guy at the register had a bunch of clothes. When the cashier told him his bill he realized he didn’t have enough money so he was going put some back. There was an older lady behind him, she looked like she was in her early fifties, she was an older white woman and he was a young black male in his very early twenties, in a couple of seconds something truly amazing happened. Amazing to me since I don’t get to witness these things every day,
It’s time for some relationship advice, you know those girls who are with those guys who just won’t commit to them no matter what? He won’t commit, he cheats, he treats her like she’s beneath him and he probably occasionally hits her. But she stays because every now and again they have a good time. They’ve been together for so long that she doesn’t want to feel like she wasted all that time the thought of going back out unto the dating scene again scares her. She is staying in the relationship because he always apologized, and reminded her that they are meant to be. Two slaps and a bouquet of roses, how romantic. He can change she says, people change all the time and one day he will realize I’ve been here the whole time holding him down.
Gonna start us off with a scenario, ever been a part of, or over heard a conversation that sounds like this:
What do you do?
“Im a plastic surgeon”
“Wow, that’s so cool. You must be really smart your so lucky”
To some people living in a certain place or having a certain job seems like a privilege reserved for some and under special circumstances this can be true. But for the rest of us, it’s just a stupid thing called fear and laziness. He or she is a doctor because they decided to go to medical school, and stayed up late nights studying and going to the hospital on 3 hours of sleep
Just got off the phone with my mom, she gave me some advice she wants me to share with my readers. Separate and apart from what this blog is about, my mom says – “Spend on yourself, buy it. Make yourself happy”. With that being said let’s get started.
Have you ever sat down and thought about when you were a little girl, or a little boy? Have you ever thought about where you imagined you would be when you were all grown up? Do it now, close your eyes and think about the things you wanted to do when you finally became a grown up. We give up on ourselves too early, mainly because we are surrounded by people telling us the
This isn’t a specific blog post, but it is a true story. I had this really good friend well many actually whose boyfriend’s hated me always. I’ve always been a modern day feminist, from the very beginning I was a “Savage” I have linked the Urban Dictionary here for you to take a look at few different modern day meanings for this word we’ve all been using a lot lately – Savage.
My sisters (and brothers too, interpret as you see fit of course). So I was giving advice to a friend os mine recently, I’m always giving advice but only to people who ask. Everybody has that one friend who every time you call she’s with her boyfriend/husband. Every waking minute of the day, they do everything together, she doesn’t even hang
I read or heard this somewhere a long time ago, if you have an idea and everyone likes it go back to the drawing board. Great ideas have this way of making the people who hear them question your sanity. You have to have a lot of people trying to convince you not to do it or it’s not that good. I listened for the hundredth time to speech given by Empire’s Tariji P Henson
