Too Methodical, too much sarcasm, be someone else

Yesterday was enlightening. I was called into the office. I was surrounded by my store manager, my ops/hr manager and my merchandise manager. We all know what this means. Either you are getting promoted or you are being put on warning. I was the latter. Seems my skills set is subpar, I can’t prioritize worth…

Mediocrity is king

New Age brings with it a new reality of the mediocre. Social media has brought a wave of people who are mediocre at best. Meaning the work with humanity’s base instinct. Fart jokes. Crude humor and such. Now while there is nothing inherently wrong with that we seem to be flooded with so many that…

Define you for you

Funny how the world views you and how you view yourself. What makes it even funnier is when feelings get hurt when you show exactly who you are. It took me a long time to finally get comfortable in the skin I was born in. I didn’t look like anyone else and was made fun…

Merry Christmas

Wishing all my readers old and new a wonderful holiday. I hope it is filled with life and love. May you get all you deserve. Merry Christmas

Not everyone is going to like you

I have been watching plenty of instagram stories and tweets. Seeing a lot of people talking about why they may be by themselves or you ain’t living life right if you ain’t got haters. Interesting this fact because we all know inherently that not everyone is going to like you. It’s true. People will rub…

Decency and respect are their own rewards

I know in this day age especially it’s really hard being a good and decent human. After all, society these days seem to want give accolades to those consider fringes. By that I mean something that is considered outside of society’s norm. These accolades or recognition can be good or bad depending on who and…

Can I even hug people now ??

With all the sexual harassment suits and accusations, men are now somehow put in a quandary of how to behave. Really?? I never knew that following the decent level of social norms was really so hard. I know while I was growing up I was taught please , thank you , may I and shaking…

Always aware

There is a huge unwritten rule for being black anywhere in the world. You are not welcome. African Americans are not even welcome in Africa by some as if it was our fault that our ancestors were sold and put to work on a land that isn’t ours.  I cannot speak for other races on…

Burn in effigy but don’t blame me

Trump this and Trump that. Since his inauguration, it has been a cluster of what he is doing and what isn’t doing. How his cabinet are essentially idiots ( I tend to agree) and basically that the four horsemen are just waiting for his thin skinned ass to push a button.  Now never mind the…

In the wise words of Beyonce ,”Dont Hurt Yourself

Welcome to Black History Month. This is a month in which black people celebrate all the past accomplishments of our own people. I applaud this month because I have learned more about Black people in recent years than I have throughout my time in elementary school. This post however is more about what black people…

” I have an Opinion”

Yesterday, one of my  coworkers posted a video on her Facebook timeline. It was a video about living in one place versus another. My coworker’s opinion was that how can you actually have an opinion when you have not gone out and actually experienced the city. I stated that is how we function these days….

Uncomplicated Friendships

You know what’s funny? These days having friendships can be somewhat complicated. We are so much hardwired on our phones that that actual forms of communication. I was born in 1976 so growing up in the 80’s having friendships meant actually face to face or talking on  your corded phone being the next best thing. …
