And he can feel good that he’s my guy /’cause he knows it...– Friends, “I’m His Girl”
I’m a Pisces, so this principle is way up my alley. Whether I’m building something, painting, writing, sketching, dancing, etc., I’m in my zone. My desire to create is uncontrollable at times, but it makes me who I am.
When A$AP Rocky said, “hood n*gga, but a good dude”, he was obviously talking about the D-Boy. Geeeeez, this kid is so damn nice! Nice is so 1990s and I’ve been supa nostalgic about that time lately.
Today is my favorite Kwanzaa principle. I can be a reckless broad sometimes, but in all I do, I am cognizant of my purpose. It just so happens that my nia for my 20s is to live life at 1000mph.
I just met the man that I’m going to marry. (or forcibly have relations with that will lead to an offspring)
Life After Meeting a D-Boy at a Lesbian Party
Me: I think I'm over the D-Boy already. He just sent this---> [insert hood text slang filled message here]
Rox: It's cute.
Me: What's cute?
Rox: The text. At least go to dinner.

Still so young that I ain’t had enough of nothing!– Drake, “We’ll Be Fine”
My girl posted this for every month, but I’m a narcissist and I’m only gonna post my birth month. Minus one sentence (can you guess which one?), this is absurdly accurate. FEBRUARY=THUG Abstract thoughts. Loves reality and abstract. Intelligent and clever. Changing personality. Attractive. sexiest out of everyone.A real speed demon. Has more than one best friend. Temperamental....
Collective Work & Responsibility
The world isn’t gonna change itself. I have a responsibility to those coming behind me to make life a little bit more beautiful. Outside of the organizations I’m in, I don’t volunteer nearly as much as I should. This is my only New Year’s resolution.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you...– Mark Twain
I guess we are becoming friends again. Good, cuz I missed you…
It takes so much courage to be yourself. The second day of Kwanzaa is a subtle reminder that it’s all worth it.
Heading back to New York. Im going to dinner w/ the ex tonight. It will be either mildly entertaining or a complete shit-show.
First day of Kwanzaa and I’m stoked! Time to get focused for the incoming year. I know people bash Kwanzaa to the high heavens, but if you take away the formalities like wearing the kente and speaking in Swahili, you can see how these seven days are like a body cleanse that we all need once in a while.
