Long Live X !

Lately, I’ve been doing my best to ensure that I  practice what I preach; keeping in mind to reciprocate the same energy unto myself I exude to others. It always seem to amaze me how the death or birth of one person could shake the world up and evoke universal emotions, causing people to put…

STOP Age-shaming

It truly bothers me when I hear people say. “OMG, she aged terribly. She use to be so beautiful when she was younger” “Ughh, that’s her now, what happened?” It’s hurtful comments like this, that lead any woman to feel irrelevant and most importantly, unattractive. I get it. We’re all ugly to someone, and  you…

Beautiful disaster

If you perceive beauty, the way I do; you’ll know beauty arises from  and is often hidden in some of the most tragic, depressing and ugliest moments in our lives. It’s been nearly a month since my mini-getaway trip to PR. Which I have to admit turned out better than I initially anticipated. My best…

Black Panther: A Hidden Gem

Is Black Panther really for the culture? Some claim the film to be over-hyped, while others perceive it as a cultural movement. After all the hype and major suspense, leading up to the official premiere day of “Black Panther.” I finally bought my ticket (a few days later because the movie was sold out the…

Anti-thot Anthem: Who wouldn’t want SZA for “The Weekend”?

Lately, I’ve been having a major issue with people categorizing SZA as a “thot” or advocating for the  “thot lifestyle”. Thot strange word, right? I know some of my readers probably have peculiar expressions on their faces,  wondering what in the hell does that mean? Well my friends, this slanged terminology simply means Hoe or let…

Carpe diem!

I think I know the moment I became disconnected with myself. While residing in Buffalo, I allowed myself to settle for any mediocre job opportunity that was at hand, for the sake of making ends meet. I hated every second of each temp job I attained. During this time I allowed other people-employers-to look at…

Take a Knee or Flee

I don’t know much about football or any sport at that. This should get your attention. Now you see where I’m going with this, right? Lately, amidst the unexpected announcement of  Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy and Cardi B’s major career milestone as a female rap artist. There’s been some serious shit going on in the country….

Angel in Disguise 

I don’t think I’ve ever considered this as possibility, but I’m truly convinced that sometimes God purposely sends real life guardian angels to protect and watch over us. Today, I had one of the most heartfelt and genuine conversations with my cab driver in Buffalo. She’s not my personal chaffeaur or anything, but I can…

What’s the rush?

It’s been 4 months since I’ve officially returned home to the Bronx. As I spend countless days and nights updating my resumes; editing cover letters and refreshing my email only to face constant rejections. Life on a whole, meaning outside of my own personally developed bubble is passing me by. And now, looking 4/5 months ahead…

Humanity rises above all

09/11 On a day like this it seems appropriate to write about, discuss, show or share Sympathy.  Which ever medium you choose, it’s still a credible act. In the midst of all the natural disasters our not-so-happy mother nature plagues upon us. She’s reminding us not just female/male, black/white, hispanic/asian but  (humankind) on a whole…
