5:45 am awakening | 6 am yoga | Game of Thrones and Black Coffee Little did I know at this pictured scene what was to unfold…kind of. I mean, a character is never safe in Game of Thrones because it is a Game. Of. Thrones. Moreover, I now know that I should have read those […]

I am so tired and you should be too.

Let me vent? I am so tired of race. I am so tired of all these racially charged articles despite their good intentions, ill-formed arguments, and their relatability all over my Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I am so tired of telling white acquaintances what it feels like. I am so tired of being told it […]

  In honor of Flashback Friday, I would like to bring to the attention of unaware specimens, Kathleen Cleaver. You may recognize her name from her affiliation with the Black Panther Party. However, this is a minor point in my opinion. Kathleen Cleaver was (is) a very intelligent and knowledgeable woman. (Um, more like a […]

I have been wanting to write this for such a long time. In order to get acclimated to the sunny city of San Diego I have been finding coffee shops and cafes where I can set up camp and knock out a couple hours of studies. I have been very fortunate to be able to […]

Ah, the infamous question that pops during small talk of all kinds because people just genuinely want to know what you’re doing in life because they are nosy they care.  Post-baccalaureate programs are essentially intense focused programs that gear their participants (usually those who have already acquired a bachelor’s) into or toward a certain field.

I was procrastinating last night on studying and stumbled across this video from Mipsterz: It was featured on this Buzzfeed Article and this Huffington Post Article . It has been received with mix reviews… Now, I […]

First, check out this parody below I thought it was hilarious and ironic considering what these ladies are talking about are kind of what Lorde is speaking against/about in a way, but it is funny nonetheless and makes fun of what a ton of people in my newsfeed gush about and do. What’s even funnier […]

No pain no gain!

Alright y’all. I did Day 15 of the 30 Day challenge with the crazy, Canadian (I think) body rockers! I haven’t been doing them everyday because 3 days a week I have a crazy class schedule that spans 12 hours of the day so four days a week should be fine. Let me tell you […]

I just had to show everyone this. For those who don’t have a gym membership or who don’t want to pay a personal trainer, here is your FREE solution! There is this group of fitness maniacs I follow on Facebook called Body Rockers and they have their “channel” called Body Rock TV. I absolutely love […]

My people. My generation. Be happy because you can. (VIDEO)

WAITBUTWHY.jpg

So, I can usually tell the general mood/biases/thought processes of people within my generation usually by what they post or share on Facebook. It is freaking infectious. I find myself sharing the same stories, saying the same things, feeling the same things. Here were my favorites from this week in all their descriptive and mirroring […]
