I’ve been so busy (and partially stressed) lately dealing with typical things we all know about – the end of the school semester, work, finding time for myself and just being tired. The busier I became, the more tired I became.. which also lead to me becoming lazy as hell. Being lazy as hell turned into my surroundings becoming messy and scattered as well. That only bothered me more. After having a day or two to myself, I realized that taking care of my surroundings is just as important as taking care of myself. Think about it. Continue reading
Been a while, guys.. but here we go! During my little break, I’ve been doing so much reading. I forgot how addicting it was! The book I’m tackling right now is already one of my favorites ever and I haven’t even finished it yet! It’s a book that I’ve been wanting to read SO BADLY since it first was released.

I have come such a long way in the past few years. I’ve experienced and overcome everything from heartbreaks, depression and even suicide plans. One of the only things I still deeply and truly struggle with is the fact that I’m my own worst critic. I beat myself up so much, it’s unreal. This is something I’ve been dealing with for as long as I can remember. It gets a little deeper.
I’ve had this post saved in my drafts for about a week now, but it was originally supposed to be about something else. I was planning to talk about how to get over people not appreciating you like you think they should. I was planning to talk about how you shouldn’t let your spirits get torn down due to the actions of others. While these things are still very relevant, I took it down to the basic level. What inspired me to switch it up was this little note I wrote to myself, inspired by an amazing shorty I know – Alex Elle. She has a running project called #anote2self, where you’re basically writing an uplifting message to yourself. I wrote one and basically told myself to stop worrying about all that nonsense and to just appreciate myself. So now, I’m telling you guys to appreciate yourself.
So, today is the day of love and all that good, mushy shit.. Right? What do folks in relationships focus on? Roses? Chocolates? What about the solo folks? Is it just national NBA 2K day? Sex and the City marathon day? I’ve been single on this day plenty of times, and I’ll be honest – it isn’t the coolest feeling. Not that I’m lonely or anything, I’m just bored. I’m sure y’all know that feeling I’m talking about. Overall, I have a few opinions about today, so hear me out below.. Continue reading
Hey, guys! It’s been a while, but I appreciate all of you who have still been keeping up with the site during the time that I’ve been slacking off. I promise that I’ve had good reason! I’ve been giving myself time – something that I don’t do enough of. Shit, something that most of us don’t do enough of. I definitely needed this time and I must say, many good things have popped up as of late. Everyone should give themselves an occasional break here and there and here’s why.
