Life

Well it’s been a while since I’ve shared my inner monologue on here. I guess crippling anxiety and depression will keep you busy. Jk. Not really. It’s fine I’m in therapy. But life has indeed been very busy. I mean it has and it hasn’t. It feels like I do a lot of things thatContinue reading “Life”

[Good] Hair

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been keenly aware of my hair. Hating it. Loving it. Straightening it. Spending tons of money on it. My family fighting about it. And this was all by the age of 5.

Left To Say

The 67%

According to a recent online poll I read somewhere, 67% of recent college grads don’t have a full-time job lined up for right after graduation. For once in my life, I’m a majority. So why is that every time I log onto Facebook, or Instagram, or even Snapchat I’m stuck having to click a half-heartedContinue reading “The 67%”
