A Place where Love can Live

You ever watch those movies where there is a friendship or a romantic relationship forming and the conflict is always that culminating moment where one person suddenly becomes super toxic to the other person, spewing out a perspective on that person that they seemed to have been harboring the entire time on why they actually…

Evolution

Today I’m noticing my evolution. Years ago, I didn’t have a skincare routine. Now, I’m going through my travel bag of TSA approved containers, each container filled with a different natural cleanser or jojoba oil or Shea-coconut oil mixture or essential oil. Years ago, my dorm room made no sense. Now I like to leave…

Advice for Immigrant Citizens who Lose their Passports

Advice for immigrant citizens who lose their passport: if you are an immigrant born outside of the U.S. and you lost your passport – send them your old passport with your application. Do not send them your birth certificate – it will mean nothing to them. Don’t try to send them your parents’ citizenship naturalization…

Boldly going where everyone has gone before…

Ok, I’m here y’all… we about to see … ok. *edit* munching now, a little lukewarm .. ok… .. it tastes faintly like… Popeyes chicken, right, like the big thigh jonts… in a sandwich…but boneless… now just tasted the pickle… so… <bite 5> …so… y’all saying Popeyes thigh is better than Chik-Fil-A? … that’s how…

I see you, Life

I think I’m starting to understand what this Life thing is about… giving you glimpses of your happiness and peace and then the feeling of parts of it being taken away and the test to see if you make it worse or if you solve it. It seems super like “duh” but it’s always easier…

Feral Relationships, Us, & the Media

Hey Music Industry 👋🏾 Listen, I’m just gonna cut right to the chase here. It’s just this thing’s been irking me right in my melanin. You ever notice that any recent song we actually get about love for POC relationships consist of f***ing and fighting? Jy kinda sounds like hell to me with a dope…

On Hotepping African Religions & Black Consciousness

Simpsplaining at its finest” – @nibba 007 My response to this simpsplaining video: To Anyone Confused by this Video: It’s not a thing per se – nobody goes around identifying as a hotep seriously. He’s just referring to bigoted people and perspectives, which could show up in any religion or culture. Particularly he is referring…

The Twist…

It’s been a while. For a while me and you was talking heavy. And I really loved it. We were healing through some stuff. And then… well, what had happened was, well… so I fell in love with this young Xhosa man, and now I’m making plans to move to South Africa. Just kidding, visit….

The Mind of Mr. Robot (continued)

We’re all walking stories. And sometimes stories find you to give you a piece to your own puzzle. It was around 1:30 in the morning late this Tuesday night when my Rami Malek rabbit hole from Freddie Mercury led me to finding Mr. Robot on my Prime Account. And it met me right where I…

The Path to Mr. Robot

Part of being a hermit is being closed off from society. Not knowing who’s in now, unless somebody I’m close with, hips me. Not really trusting pop culture around me to point me to who or what I would actually be into. That’s how I found out about Frank Ocean years later. 7 years later,…

My Green Eggs & Ham

So I am highly sensitive. Like highly sensitive. Like if you sit me in a barber shop and play nothing but depressing R&B songs, I’m gonna start going stir-crazy and remembering exes and may just be liable to walk out with half a haircut. Or like if you don’t tell me we’re going to see…
