I was forced to exercise my chill. Last night, just before I got in bed, I’d realized someone had taken something from me. It was my phone charger. Now, I have two spares (one in the car and one at work) because my phone doesn’t respect me or my authority, but this person had taken my Apple charger. The expensive ass one that came with the phone that I’d never pay for and for such reasons stays in the house. This person likely just wanted to charge their phone and took the whole thing with them when they grabbed their phone to leave. But when I tell you I was furious about it, I guarantee you you’re not envisioning the proper level of fury that was surging through me. I rely on my phone to wake me up in the am. I was at maybe 34% and was NOT walking out to the car to get the spare. This was MY GOOD charger that was taken. Accident or not. I don’t care if they thought they were “borrowing” it. In my mind they’d STOLEN it. I didn’t even get a “hey D. I fucked around and took your charger with me when I left. Don’t forget to remind me to bring it next time I come over” text. Nothing. To compound the shitiation, the persons phone was dead. I tried to call so I could read the shit out of this individual and their phone was fucking dead. I mean, you have the nerve to take my charger and have a dead ass battery???? The fuck? Unfuckingacceptable. Utterly unfuckingacceptable.Read More»
If you haven’t noticed by now, between the Twittas, Book, and Gram, I’ve been obsessed with podcasts for the past three weeks or so. Well, not really podcasts, but one in particular; Snap Judgment. Simply put, Snap Judgment is a compilation of amazing stories. They’re punctuated by music and sound effects (as if you need anything besides the amazing stories to keep your attention) and conveniently gift wrapped into themed episodes. People from around the world have powerfully told their tales of love, horror, deceit, persecution, awe, growth, embarrassment, joy, courage, elation *takes breath* everything. It’s all covered and shared first hand. I can sit here and continue to lament about how amazing I think the show is, how I’ve grown to see the host and producers as friends in my head since I’ve listened to them tell me the beautifully vivid stories of their lives, or I can just leave the link to my favorite podcast right HERE and tell you to take a listen for yourself.

In March I received my first award of recognition for my work with my blog. The ladies of LUSH Expressions, an all women entertainment company inspiring women to “Love Yourself and Stay Happy”, chose to honor myself and four other phenomenal women of substance and success at their first annual women’s expo. Honestly, I’m still in shock. I don’t do this for recognition, I do it for release. I enjoy having something I can channel my energy and creativity into. It’s mine; it grows as I do. My blog means a lot to me and to see that it means a lot to others as well is quite a humbling yet exciting feeling.
You really never know who’s watching. You never know who’s life you can touch and to me that’s one of the most amazing gifts in life. The feeling I get when I get inspired, uplifted, motivated and/or energized by a thought, comment, anecdote, joke or whatever has to be one of THE best feelings; it’s so pure. That spark of positivity that can lead to an endless number of other positive things is definitely a gift. I love the idea of something that I’m doing inspiring that same feeling in others. I love the idea that something I express may motivate someone to actively pursue their dream a little harder than they did the day before. It’s like a chain reaction of positivity.Read More»
Ok. Many of you are well aware that punctual isn’t something I’m good at. I’m always in a rush. But this morning I had to cowash my hair. It was really dry and dull looking and there was no way I was leaving my house looking a mess. My hair is in that in between length. It’s still too short to pull it up into a respectable bun, but because of shrinkage, I don’t like to wear it as a wet fro. What’s a girl to do?!Read More»
