Dear Diary,

IMG_9453

After reading old post from the last couple of years, my last quarter of the year will always be challenging. I think I came on here today to rant about everything that I am currently going through. Honestly, it’s not that deep because things can be worst and life isn’t so bad. I’m a sucker for change and I’m ready for something new. I had not been able to admit that until now. It’s Saturday night and I’m home watching YouTube and typing this because parties aren’t my thing, my love life is still dry, I don’t entertain anyone, my work week starts tomorrow, and I switched up my apartment for the season so I enjoy being home anyway. However, I do have a few things to release; Continue reading “Dear Diary,”

Hair Update: I’m not a Hair Blogger

FullSizeRender-4

If you know me, you know I LOVE MY HAIR! Especially when it’s just done, like FRESH out the Salon done! It makes me feel like a whole new or different woman each time but it’s been a while since I’ve been to a hair salon because I’m transitioning to natural.

 

I think my last relaxer was right before I went to California in 2015.  Let’s start by saying that this might be the second hardest thing to maintain. What I’m learning about natural hair is that it is a scheduled and very detailed process.

 

So here’s the update:

Complaining my way to Self CARE

I’ve spent the last few weeks complaining. I called a friend, we met up for drinks, and I continued to complain. Through sips of my mojito, I asked her to be my accountability partner, because we all need one. But I shouldn’t need an accountability partner to realize that I need to be better about my self care.

Hello May

Hello May! 
For personal reasons, I’m ready for you to end.  
I ended April by taking a random day trip to Maryland for business/family visit. I seen my niece for the first time and lets just say that we’re best FRIENDS! Leaving New York City is teaching me everyday that living here is not forever but will always be home. I’ve been super planning since my return. Let’s just say I’m aiming for Summer 2018 to move my life, it’s time.
Now that school is “almost over”, I am able to do some well needed research on self care and wellness. I’ve read somewhere that it is normal to need human touch and I sure did get a Swedish massage this morning because it’s the closest thing I’ll get to human touch for awhile. Lordt knows I needth that massage!
I deactivated my personal social media accounts to give myself a well deserved break. I need to focus and I hate to be distracted. I’ll admit, the lying on social media sometimes gets me, at times I think that I missing out or messing up. Taking this break is teaching me again to TRUST GOD’s TIMING.
Seeking another domestic location to see. If I back track, ATL, NOLA, TEXAS, and The BAY are on the list. Maybe ATL in June and The Bay in July, Texas in August, and NOLA in September, it’s an idea, we’ll see.

New post coming soon, any plans for May?

YEAR 28

I knew for a few months what picture I wanted to post on social media to let the world I’m another year wiser. Because we all become wiser when we are willing to learn and teach others about ourselves.
Reflecting over the year, there are a few things I can say I’ve learned and taught others;
Patience and Forgiveness.
I turned 28 on my way home from work on the 2 train and I smiled to myself because there was a peace that I had in that moment, like “Shit is good” kind of peace.
