For Homecoming, I experienced almost every single emotion in less than 48 hours.
So Monday was emotional as F for me. It didn’t even start until the afternoon, so I’m like WTF? The first time I’m saving for, you guessed it, the book. The second time I cried was at Jermaine’s (You probably know him as J Cole. I call him Jermaine. Lol) concert. This is the 4th time I’ve seen him (3rd time in 2.5 years) and he never disappoints.
Yesterday morning, I was reminded of why I love New York.
When I got to New York, I promised myself that I would at least wait six months before applying to another job.
So, if you’re lucky enough to be friends with me on Facebook, you saw that I recently got a new gig. I have a pretty loyal background when it comes to my career – gift and curse.
So, this is going to sound very ironic, but I’m mourning a “break-up”. The irony is, I was never in a relationship. How does that work, you say? Okay…
I’m usually quoting or using something that Kanye has said, but I’m upset with him right now. So, to quote Jay-Z, “Everybody look at you strange, say you changed. Like you work that hard to stay the same. ” You don’t have to be a Jay Z fan to have heard of it because people have been using that as their Facebook and Instagram caption for years. I used to roll my eyes, but then growth happened.
Solo trips are so good for the soul.
I didn’t know anyone who went on solo trips when I took my first one to Miami a few years ago. I just got tired of waiting on people to decide they wanted to go on these trips with me.
I’m about two months late posting on this, but it’s here. ha!
So, yall. My college friends always said that they will never go out of the country with me, especially with me going to the Caribbean, because I LOVE Caribbean men. Like, it’s crazy. The first thing any of my friends ask when I say I’ve met someone is, “So, where is he from?” 😂 If he just so happened to be born in NY, his parents weren’t. Look, I can’t help it.
As a woman, our hair becomes a part of us, our identity. Whether we wear it short, long, big, etc. For some of us, the longer we let it grow, the more it hurts us when we let it go. I’ve never had really long hair. I just don’t think my hair grows like that, let’s be honest here. I like shorter hair though. Well, let’s say some time ago I liked it short enough to do two-strand twists, and all of that. Something like this.
