How Many Likes Did It Take For You To Forget Who You Were?

IMG_2630

My older brother has always been the one to tell me what to expect as I got older. What sort of things I’d experience in relationships, friendships and in life in general were typically his main points of focus. My parents did too but the generational and cultural differences made it difficult to relate to some of their teachings. Now that I am older, their knowledge combined with what I have learned on my own has made a pretty-perfect combo and turned me into the “know it all” that I am today. While my major flaws lie in sometimes stating my opinions condescendingly, I never claim to know everything. However, there is one thing that I do know for sure or have noticed at the very least.

Introducing GIRL #3 (The EP)

“What does Girl #3 mean?” is usually the first question people tend to ask.  “You sing?”, in a surprised tone, tends to be the second.

You don’t have trust issues!

…Or maybe you do. Who knows? But before you wallow in the belief that the way you trust or distrust is a real issue, let’s try dissecting what the term “trust issues” actually means and how it’s used.

Trust, or the lack there of, begins affecting most of us at an early age. I can remember the moment where trust no longer seemed like such an easy concept. I was around 6 years old and I had asked a friend to hold the money my mom had given me. We were on our summer camp trip and I had no pockets. Surely, I could trust her with my soggy 10$ bill.  We went our separate ways and when we met back on the bus at the end of the day, I learned that she had spent my money. Not some of it. All of it. She spent it on cotton candy, a Slurpee and a stuffed animal. I was as astonished as a 6-year-old could be.

Time’s Up: Is 2017 Still Your Year?

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

At the top of the year, weeks maybe even days before, nobody could tell much of any of us that this was not our year. This was the year that we would put all of our dreams into action, the year we would be recognized for our talents. This was the year that all of our loose ends would be tied and everything would come around full circle.

If you are anything like me, you were already tuned into Cardi B’s boisterous videos before “Love and Hip Hop: New York” introduced her to the world on a greater scale.

“It’s cold outside but I’m still looking like a thottie because.. a hoe never gets cold” 

became a well known Cardi proverb and was used as a legit excuse to wear sheer and/or above the mid-thigh dresses in the middle of winter…at least by me anyway.
