Wattpad Debut: A Caged Animal


I released a short book of 23 poems entitled, "A Caged Animal" exclusively on Wattpad. My voice usually isn't militant, but this is how I was feeling at the time. I was witnessing something strange happening to the Black man that I am in love with, and the only way to cope was to write.
I'm not going to blast this work a lot, and I'm sure it will be read more a year from now. I honestly just feel accomplished for having something with my mark out there.
Now, let's talk about Wattpad. I do not like it. I do not like how things are broken down, I do not like how every page flip is an advertisement for someone's work. I'm not very fond of Wattpad, but I do have plans to release more projects on there.
Releasing this project has definitely taught me that my friends on Facebook could give a shit less about my writing save for a couple, and I'm going to have to invest in a lot of advertising.
An elderly gentleman just told me to put my phone down and read a book...

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
