So I'm usually not one who likes to harp too much on my Blackness. Like I look Black, I talk Black (for whatever that means), and my entire world is Black (Despite what folks might think as a LA Native). Hell, I have the Black power fist tatted on me. I don't need to make... Continue Reading →
Alpha, maybe hold the Omega tho.
It's a curious thing to translate your love language to someone and hear them speak it back. To feel their understanding when you didn't even know if they heard you clearly. Me: “If the title of my blog was, "So about this guy I'm "seriously talking to" here's the thing," what would it say?!" "I... Continue Reading →
Happy. Healthy. Whole.
If you know me, then you know that I've adopted the mantra of Happy, Healthy, Whole over the last few years. For me, it's taking on many forms. At times it was a plea; other times, it's been a war cry. Now, it is a way of life. I've decided that taking back my power... Continue Reading →
If it isn’t love…
Welp, it's the day after Valentine's Day or, as some like to refer to it, Happy side-chick day. LOL.

So obviously we are all dealing with the reality that we are very much so in the middle of a real-life pandemic. Now, of course, as with anything, responses to something like this is going to vary. Everyone has their way of coping, and perhaps now more than ever, whatever that may be, we all... Continue Reading →
“What are you afraid of?”
"What are you afraid of?”, a question that can be super generic depending on whose asking and answering. I mean, I could go down a list of things I'm afraid of that would answer the question perfectly fine. Spiders, the dark, snakes, heck, I just had to turn the light on to watch the end...

How to comfort someone who is grieving.
One of the most challenging things to go through, particularly when you are an empath like I am, is to be there for someone while they are grieving. Its a tough balance to strike between caring for them while still caring for yourself. One cannot exist without the other, and it is not selfish to... Continue Reading →
