We Must Grow Together

It’s more important now than ever that we stand together. A nation undivided. A nation that believes in the equality of others and willing to reach back when there’s another hand reaching for us. By giving people basic human rights and teaching ourselves to have internal growth we can grow together. In a world full of opportunity we must continue to fight. We musth continue to grow and teaching ourselves at every opportunity available. Just because we exit school does not mean that we should ever quit learning. To read more of my thoughts on this subject matter you may check out my latest entry on Pippies here.

Social Media Drains Our Mental Health

They always say never talk politics over dinner. Every Thanksgiving, we as a nation post memes about brushing off remarks made by our family. Yet, I sit here after maybe an hour of sleep for the second time within a week. It is a little past nine in the morning, and I might fall asleep around ten if I’m lucky. The other day I realized how tired I am of not saying how I feel about these matters. I realized that for the last four years, I have been in a place where I thought if I spoke about this freely, I had one fear in the back of my mind. I’d lose a family member.

Stop Pretending Black Lives Don’t Matter

I’m not one to let hate into my heart. I try more often than not to deny it entry. Some days are harder than others to comprehend what is happening before us. Thankfully on May 21, 2020, a third person was arrested in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery. His name is William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. He is the person who filmed the horrific video footage of Arbery being chased down by Gregory and Travis McMichael. My hope now is that these murder charges stick because that’s what happened. They lynched a young man for merely taking a jog. The sad part is it never stops. I feel like I’m on repeat and wondering when and if I’m going to get a call one day and told that one of my friends didn’t make it home, and it sucks.

A Year Later…Kinda Sorta

About a year and almost two months ago, I wrote a piece for this site. I wrote an article for me. A piece that many people connected with despite it being one of my darkest times. I was not a good place. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I started going to therapy. I never knew how bad I had beat up on myself and let all these naysayers get in my head over the years. In many ways, I let fear dictate my life instead of going for what I wanted. In many ways, I’d be lying if I said I had not done this for some time now. Lately, I find myself applying for numerous jobs online. All of them so far have been writing based because that is my passion. Ultimately at the end of the day, I love writing. But because I kept hearing all these little things and letting them stay with me, I could not break through my bullshit to dive deeper into who I could be.

To My Godson On His Original Graduation Day

I spent nine months going out to eat with your mother when she was pregnant with you. We ate a lot of Mexican and a lot of Scalini’s during that time. Of course, there were other food cravings, but I determined you were going to come out of her womb, asking for Coke (Coca-Cola) because that was the only thing she could not give up while pregnant with you. The good news is you did not come out screaming BRING ME A COKE. But you did finally grace us with your presence, and despite not being able to stay in the room long to see you the first time, I think I made up for that the first like six years of your life.

‘Good Girls’ Recap: ‘Synergy’

Last week on Good Girls, viewers learned all about opportunities with Mr. Fitzpatrick. This week all realized that the girls’ world is turning upside down almost instantaneously. After the way last week’s episode ended, I had a feeling this cold opening was going to introduce Agent Donnegan to Ruby this week. As Ruby sets up her table to get ready for another day at the nail salon, Agent Donnegan walks in and needs a manicure, of course. She uses a ten-dollar bill to get change with, and Ruby reveals a bit too much about how you check to see if the currency is fake. If they were not onto her before, they are definitely onto her now.

‘Good Girls’ Recap: ‘Opportunity’

Last week on Good Girls, viewers were left wondering via the upcoming scenes if this is the week that Rio dies. Will Mr. Fitzpatrick (Andrew McCarthy) follow through on his promise to the girls? After all, this week’s cold open shows our girls at the park as Beth’s kids play at the park. I love how they have the girls fighting over who killed who as they sit there and patiently wait for the hitman to execute Rio. My favorite part is when Annie declares that the hit on Rio is complete because a dog stared at them.

‘Good Girls’ Recap: ‘Incentive’

Last week on Good Girls, viewers were left stunned knowing that someone else is on track to hunt down our girls, Agent Phoebe Donnegan (Lauren Lapkus). While making a horrible comparison to discovering that women are involved in this counterfeiting ring, she proves throughout the episode that she might be even more determined to take them down than Agent Turner. After all, she needs to make a name for herself, and this case would allow her to do so.

The Time I Shaved Only Half of My Right Leg

Although there are plenty of options for us all right now, we are all going to utter the phrase, “I’m bored.” I think this is normal. Yesterday, instead of doing anything on my to-do list, I found myself thinking, “I’m gonna shave my legs.” I have one of those Flawless razors, and this has brought me great shaving joy since purchasing it. I seriously love this razor-like no other: no razor burn, no cuts, just gloriously shaved legs.
