I’ve always been considered to be pretty chill person. (Chill meaning easy going not temperature reading.) And for the most part I am. That being said, there are times when my own anxieties knock me of my easy going pedestal and threaten to betray my existing reputation.
Imani and I met at a local church and connected over our sarcastic sense of humor and our current relationship status. I cant say that I know anyone more dedicated to finding and expressing her own unique style of art. She leaves beautiful imprints on people through her art but also through her words and […]
As a young professional its not hard to get caught up with the appeal of appearing busy. Everyday, my time is compared to people who have the same hours in a day but manage to build a business empire while climbing Mt. Everest at the same time having a balanced home life and the best […]
Brittany and I became friends while working together for the same local non-profit agency. We connected for our love of each other’s style which slowly grew into a good friendship and long conversations about life on her living room sofa. Brit is ambitious, a talented photographer, lively, go-getter and will always laugh with you when […]
A few weeks ago I posted a blog about how I had a crush on one guy for two years. Thankfully I wasn’t criticized or burned at the stake as I initially thought. Surprisingly, so many people responded saying they related to my story on so many different levels. I guess we are all a […]
Forget the Enneagram or Meyers-Briggs. There are only two types of people in this world: Those who let the microwave run until it rings v.s. those who stop it right before it expires. […]
If you’re reading this blog your either: My friends and family. (Thanks fam!) A stranger who read another one of my posts and stayed around for more. Or you follow me on social media, finally gave into all of my persistent posting, and clicked the “link in bio.” (if you’re that person, go you!) With […]
The day has come to reveal that we have a podcast with guest hosts, Vasty and Greg, on the blog! Now you can listen to us on your ride to work or in the background while browsing Pintrest. Either way I hope you like it! Enjoy Episode 1!
I wrote a list of goals last week. And I mean real goals, not just the flowery ones that make me look like a good person. No, this list included both the passions of my heart for humanity and the desires of my heart for myself. As I was compiling this list, I realized my goals for myself have changed drastically in my late twenties. The things I jotted down for myself were far more directed and purposed in the same direction. Apparently, I have grown up over the years.
Dear Tough Exterior, I hope this doesn’t come as a surprise to you. It’s not me. It’s you. I’m breaking up with you. Actually, I’m breaking up with you and your cousins, Ms. “Independent,” Mrs. “I can do it Myself, ” and the “I don’t need anyone” Lady. Don’t get me wrong. You served me […]
Fear initially designed to keep me from touching a hot stove or running with scissors, morphed, somehow got a hold of my thoughts and dreams, and began to dictate my every move. // READ MORE!
I spent two years crushing on a guy I thought was perfect.
No, the title is not click bait. This actually happened.
I’ve been a worker bee since I was 16. I got my first job at a Jamba Juice right down the street from my house. As life would have it, the day my orthodontist rid me of the metal death traps superglued to my teeth the past year (aka braces), was also my first day […]
One of the only models of creativity I saw while growing up were the creative genius type. They were the ones with a wealth of creative thought and and an unending supply of talent. They were generally artsy, messy hair and had unkempt clothing branded the “creative mess.” I wanted more than anything to be […]
I walked into my parents house last Saturday with no expectations except to say hello and to chat about their lives. What I didn’t expect was an ambush from my mom of questions about my dating life, who that one boy in that Facebook picture was, and when I planned to get married. -_- My […]
One of the biggest motivations for this blog is to redefine what life after twenty-five looks like. It’s a community for likeminded #posttwentyfive-ers who are still foolish enough to believe in their dreams. In my early twenties, I was a hot mess and had indestructible belief that the dreams I held in the safety of […]
