Category: Life.

realizations, desires, unfortunate events, celebrations.

I’m ready.

This weekend was one that I’m sure I will remember for the rest of my life. I’ve gone through it not being able to walk, crying in front of friends who I’ve been my “strongest” for, and having to physically be taken care of…

The Diagnosis.

It’s 3:26 am, and I can’t sleep because my body won’t let me. I realized that I’ve been avoiding all of the things that bring me joy, and writing is easily in the Top 3. In my last blog, I gave you the run-down…

Today, I Cried.

This is not some rouse to get you to read my blog. Today, for the first time in a long time, I uncontrollably cried. Here’s how it started: Last night, around 10pm, I was overwhelmed with insecurity. I felt like I was an embarrassment…

Istanbul, Turkey.

  My goal with the “Travel” page on my blog is to give you all an insight on the things I see and experience when I leave home. About two years ago I felt a yearning to see more of the world, but not…

The Year of Growth.

I’ll go ahead and get right to it. I haven’t posted in about a year, and the last time I did, it was a short poem about an exhaustive break-up. I made the conscious decision never to go back to that place. I decided…

Untitled ..

I never felt burdened by loving you.  It was all so organic; it worked as if it were created to.  We became woven into each other’s beings and together we’d grown into our own personification of peace.  Your destruction of that is a reminder…

“I’m Black.”

 Recently I’ve been heavily burdened with the fact that my celebration of self, seems to be a problem for some. I’m Black. I’m sure you’re saying, “Duh,” but I think I need to make that clear for all of my friends who claim not…

An Epiphany…

I don’t have very many people who stick around. I don’t mean people who know OF me, I mean people who know my heart and all of its hurt. People who know my mind and why it works the way it does. People who…

Rainy Day Chronicles

It’s storming; I’m writing. Initially, I was in my journal, but I figured “why not make this a blog?” It was recently brought to my attention that I don’t make my relationship status clear on social media, that if I have a boyfriend, I…

The Adoption: Growth

I was skeptical about writing another blog. I’m not sure if it was because I felt like I let myself down, or was just frustrated with my circumstances. Either way, I went for it. For the past 6 months, I’ve been in what I…

The Adoption: Homestudy #1

That’s a picture of my certificate of completed preparation courses 🙂 I’ll try to keep this blog as short and to the point as possible. Firstly, it has been one heck of a journey getting my apartment ready for this child. Emotionally, spiritually, and…

The Adoption: Certification Week 2

It seems like it has been FOREVER since I’ve updated you guys, but I have been extremely busy. Firstly, I graduated last weekend. I’m still a bit in awe about the fact that I’m no longer an undergrad, and I am finally a 12th…
