Hidden Figures The Movie. // There Is Nothing To Big To Handle

Hey Friends!

So I am not a movie review blogger or anything of that sort. Nonetheless, I watched this inspiring movie and knew I had to write about it! Hidden Figures was just the movie I needed to see. Sometimes I feel like God knows exactly what to put in front of me, in order to tie everything together and get me moving and back on my feet again. While watching this movie it was as if I was being told that I have the upmost potential and ability to achieve anything I set my mind on. Let me tell you, I feel refreshed. I feel like I can take a deep breath and look this new school year and the rest of my life straight in the eye and say “ there is nothing too big for me to handle”
“Yes, they let women do some things at NASA, Mr Johnson, and it’s not because we wear skirts. It’s because we wear glasses” Hidden Figures, tells the true story of three intelligent young black women (Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson,& Dorothy Vaughn ) who were the first of their kind to contribute in the…

Family Violence. // We Have Lost Love In Our Homes.

There was a recent report from TheGailyGrind that I came across on Facebook, in which broke my heart. A mother admitted to ambushing and killing her gay son because she could not accept his sexual orientation..




I was filled with a flood of emotions and thoughts and  just ranting a little paragraph on Facebook about it was not enough. I had to go deeper.

No, I will not be discussing whether I am for or against gay marriage. Although that topic of gay rights is crucial and needs attention, that is not my main focus of this post.

Love. Family: Your Flesh And Blood.
Those words are most likely going to be repeated in this post more than once.

Correct me if I am wrong, but when you decide to have a family you are committing to going through peaks and valleys with these people in your life. They are the ones you see when you wake up and before you go to bed, they are the people that are suppose to display the first example of Love.

I think we all know first hand that being a teen/young adul…

Embracing Consistency & Passion

Hey Friends!

I hope 2017 is treating you all well. I have to
say that  during this fairly long winter break that I am on,  I have been embracing more of the importance of Consistency & Passion. Especially  since I have been pursuing a certain job position in which requires a lot of interviews and training.

There has been a huge amount of reflecting on my part because I want to make sure that when I start school in about 6 days I am well prepared & not dwelling in the past or lacking any motivation.

My aunt and mom once told me to find something that you are really good at and passionate about and roll with it, be the best you can be in it, whether that is;  writing, teaching, I don't know maybe even dancing! Grab a hold of it, be consistent & claim it as yours. Be the expert in it.

I write this because  I am going to be in my last year in college and honestly it hasnt been easy at all, and it will not get any easier because that is the way life is. I have been failing …

Dear 30 Year Old Me... I Got Alot of Questions!

As odd as it sounds I am ready for school! Everyone & their grandma has started school except me. I don't start until the 19th of this month lol.

If you have read some of my post from two days ago you will know that I did terrible last year academically, so I have been kind of beating myself up.. But I think I am at the point where I have left my week long pity party and I am ready to start being excited for the future and this next semester.

I turn 22 this year which got me thinking. I will be 30 in like 8-9 years. That may seem like a long time away which it is, but i couldn't help but wonder how completely differnet my life will be at that time. What exciting things life will be throwing at me.

 I am hoping by 30 I have finished all my schooling and I am diving into my career. So here is a rather detailed letter of questions I would ask my 30 year old self!!

 [ Long Post Alert!!]



        This is your 21 year old self writing to you wondering how you ended up. You can sa…

Failing Over & Over. Is There Hope?

I'm inside my car as it is parked in the parking lot of my church. I told my sister and brother to go ahead while I stay behind . I decided to stay in the car to write this...

Whatever it is that I am writing, not really sure yet.. But let's see where this takes me yeah? 

My Prayer Last night: 
" Dear God,  I'm a continued mess & failure. I haven't achieved anything, I'm flunking every class. I'm literally just taking up space at home and I have no idea what my purpose is. I'm going to sleep, Please. Do. Not. Wake. Me. Up." 
Not the most happiest prayer... 
So what do you do when you feel like a continued failure? When it is coming to the point where your parents are saying...
"You are disgracing the family"  "I'm really disappointed in you"  "What kind of person are you"  " You are just taken up space"  " Why don't you have common sense?"  "You haven't achieved anything" 
I d…

Reflecting On Grades & New Mentality:

I did worse this past Fall semester then I have ever done. Ever. And I do not mean worse as in I got my first C, I mean worse as in D's and an F. Usually I would break down and cry about my results but something inside me changed.

It is 2017 and I am in my last year of college. From the moment I saw my poor scores I knew what exactly happened during the semester that resulted in my failing grades. I also know that I need to really turn things around this Spring semester. So you can say I am doing a lot of reflecting and planning in this post because well it is better to write or (type) things out while reflecting so you have your goals visually in front of you and you can be kept accountable.

Fall 2016: Why Did I fail my classes?

1. I was distracted.
- What was distracting me?
2. Clubs, Social Media, Josh ( I wrote about him in my last post ), loneliness
- Why did I want to be so involved with these distractions?
3. I want to have a close network. Be involved with friends
- I was …
