5 Songs I Love

5 Songs I Love
SO, my music taste can't really be defined. If you name an artist, and I've at least attempted to listen to them, I'm able to make an opinion. Being a former choir boy, jazz saxophonist, and classical pianist, I can say that I have had an life-long love of music. I was like 8 when I started listening to the music that I liked. Of course growing up with heavy influences in gospel, Spice Girls, Britney Spears, and Destiny's Child, I'm impartial to music that expresses female dominance and empowerment. The first album I spent…

Where Do I Go: Finding my voice in Black Female led spaces

Where Do I Go: Finding my voice in Black Female led spaces
One thing about me that you'll note, I love feeling included. It's one of those things that you hate to admit, but once you do and realize you sometimes have problems with it, it becomes something you learn to grow from. Anyway, I love being included because I love being able to express myself, and hearing the struggles of others and finding a sense of community. I thrive off of a strong social circle, and having people to talk to about my issues as well as triumphs.

The thing that is crazy about wanting to feel included, is when you w…

Fasting from Social Media

Fasting from Social Media
Social Media can be a topsy-turvy, tumultuous, trying and utterly tainted thing. I can remember first signing up for Facebook in the 6th Grade. I remember being so happy to connect with friends, and people who I wanted to be my friend. I remember having all the upperclassmen in my magnet school on Facebook, and somewhat stalking them because I either 1. thought they were cute, or 2. thought that they wanted to actually be my friend. I remember not knowing how to channel my excitement for people's posts and accomplishments, which resulted …

Starting Over, and Over, and Over...

Starting Over, and Over, and Over...
It's been 10 months since I walked across the stage to get my diploma. In that time, I've definitely had a little myriad of experiences that make me realize two things. 1. I need to make money. 2. I need to find my professional passion. It's funny, when I transferred schools to start at Georgia Southern, I was adamant that fashion design was my chosen field, and I was going to learn through my program and solidify a job in New York City upon graduation, and that was all she wrote. Well, I finished my program, was extremely involved…

Welcome Back

Welcome Back
I never thought I'd be here again. Writing on this platform that used to give me so much joy. I could start by boring you with useless backstory about where I've been, and what I've been doing. But I don't really feel like doing that. Just know, I'm alive, I'm a college graduate, and I am a lovable hot mess.
I'm forever conflicted with writing. I feel like certain people can write and blog because they understand the barriers or boundaries that we place on ourselves to not expose too much of our personal lives. And…

College Recap, so far!

College Recap, so far!
Happy New Year Everyone!

It's definitely been a wild time since the last time I wrote. So much has happened, good and bad, but honestly it was all worth it. I really want to start by saying that this is my hopeful attempt to finally commit to this blog. I've had it for almost four years now; it's really crazy to think that I started this as a freshman in college. How so much has happened in my life that has really changed me as a person.
How somehow now I am able to navigate somewhat life and the many challenges that have presented…

Transitions with the Stewarts

Transitions with the Stewarts
Certain people come in your life for a really specific and special reason. My first week of college, I was a bold-faced freshman, ready to take on the school, but God definitely sent me a few guardian angels pretty quickly as a new student. Her name was Jessica Haskins, and she was definitely my biggest match. My overly-stroked ego decided to get the best of me, and Jessica gave me the biggest dose of reality I've ever experienced. Through some inevitable life lessons, I realized that Jessica was right, and my ego quickly deflated. She hel…

THE THREE G's

THE THREE G's
Disclaimer: This post was written in April, and I just finally put the finishing touches on it to post... ENJOY THIS MARINATED, PROPHETIC WORD. 
I am finally back in Statesboro after a 10 day excursion to Augusta. No, it was not my Spring Break, it was Masters Week. What's the Masters you ask? The Masters is an international golf tournament that just so happens to take place in my hometown of Augusta, Georgia. People from all over the world come to Augusta to enjoy the lavish lifestyle that comes with Augusta National. This week for me wa…
