Why Can’t We Be Friends?

I’d love to say that I live a life that is free from regret, but alas–this is not true. One of my biggest regrets that I am actively working to rid my life of is my relationship (or lack thereof, really) with my siblings. In order for me to accurately portray  the problem that we […]

What Hurts the Most Part III…

I can’t really pinpoint just one thing that made me start drawing back. It could have been the insecurity I felt as you went off to college or the attention that I found myself getting from the guys at my school. Something in me clicked and immediately made me rethink our whole relationship. I felt […]

What Hurts the Most Part II…

In the short time we conversed, I have to admit she seemed to be a sweet girl. The kind of girl you always went for. Pretty, petite, soft-spoken. Kind of made me wonder how we ever…no, how you ever changed your view of me. I knew that traditionally I was not your type, but you […]

What Hurts the Most Part I…

I was quite shocked to run into you when I did. I don’t know how to describe the feeling I had when I noticed you. It was a mixture of happiness and sadness, tinged with a bit of longing. I gave myself a little pep talk and thought I could just slide by without you […]

Untitled Entitlement

So I’m sitting on Twitter last week and @miss_hellion tweets the following… If a man has to meet all of your nutty ass standards, that’s fine, but don’t say there aren’t quality men out there. Just wait on the Lord. I’m not saying you can’t have standards. You have to. Just don’t be shocked that no one […]

Stan by your man…

The misspelling/wrong word choice is intentional. A few days ago I was talking about my third* favorite black celebrity couple–Tamia and Grant Hill. Tamia recently released a new music video for her song, “Beautiful Surprise” which features Grant as her leading man. I commented on how cute they (& their relationship–at least what we see […]

On Communicating Effectively…

Yesterday I tweeted the following: i feel like effective communication is something that should be taught to children in schools like math/science/etc. it’s just as important in life one needs to know how to express their feelings + opinions without being an asshole. it’s something with which i sometimes struggle. one must also work to […]
