I Love the Dough — The Notorious B.I.G. ft. Jay-Z

Sunday

 

Let’s talk facts & figures

 

For the past two weeks, I’ve been contemplating whether or not to publish this post. Now, with the current hype surrounding Jay-Z’s 4:44, it only seems right — and a little late.

When talking finances, my current reality is that I am swimming in debt. And it’s not the end of the world.

I start a new job in a few weeks, and my main focus will be to pay off these bills. Aside from my lifelines — one through blood, the other through love — I’ve managed to use my credit to stay afloat.

At one point, I considered bankruptcy. TLC & Donald Trump did it, so eh!

I think that when considering my car loan, student loans, and credit card balances, I’ve amassed $100,000  worth of debt. So, I’ve decided to use my current situation as a life lesson. The main takeaway being: use your income to invest in your future — general savings, IRAs, CDs, education, etc.

 

 

Have you ever seen an armored truck follow a hearse?

Let’s go back …

To that birthday; when we had dinner in the city,

Taking pictures to capture the moment.

I still have those, y’know?

 

We rode back to your place with the top down.

“Which way do you want to go?”

Deep down,

You knew the answer.

Wild Thoughts — DJ Khaled ft. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller

Thursday

Relax.

Your time is coming. : )

 

From school, family, friends, and love, this week has definitely involved plenty of building and mending.

Let’s keep that up!

Summer ’17, though …

 

Do you ever get worked up over who or what you do not have? If you’re anything like me, those fleeting thoughts storm in at the worst possible time. Like last night…

Sky’s the Limit — Notorious B.I.G. ft. 112

Tuesday

It’s an amazing feeling when you see your hard work finally beginning to pay off.

Note to Self: You are your best investment.

I’m sure I’ll have to remind myself of this.

 

I’m excited about starting this blog. I just hope that I’m able to keep it up! … Which is why I chose to keep the layout really simple.

Although things are definitely looking up, I’m feeling a bit thrown off this week. I’m running behind schedule with quite a few things, so I’m hopping to tighten up before the week ends…

There’s a cat call in the far distance. Well, across the street.

Sir, are you serious? I find it extremely bothersome the lack  I find the lack of respect people have for others — and even themselves — extremely bothersome. When men casually speak to me in the street, I always return a friendly greeting. But hissing at me will not get a reply. A simple “Hi. How you doin’?“, or “Good morning will suffice.

Blog 2 - Phone

 

Which leads me to my recent experiences on some social media apps. When I initially rejoined Instagram (oh, about 4 days ago), I signed up for several other socializing apps: Badoo, Bloglovin’, and several shopping apps …

 

I deactivated my IG the same day.

Then I had the idea for my blog. So, I decided to use Instagram to add some pizazz to the site. I also made a conscious decision not to mindlessly scroll through photos and videos, forgetting about my actual life. I’m using IG to reconnect, for image hosting, and to occasionally stay in the loop.

Who am I?

A question begging to be answered. Unfortunately, I don’t have the definitive answer — nor do I think there will ever be one. Here’s what I do know:

I am a lifelong learner. I am an entrepreneur.

I am a hopeless romantic. I am politically conscious (#woke).

 I am a feminist. Unapologetically. 

I am family oriented.

I am [not]   w h a t  y o u  t h i n k.

.

 

So, why a blog?

I’ve been on hiatus for quite some time. I needed to find my peace, and myself. Social media can consume you…if you allow it to. When I was a frequent user, I did not realize that the sites and apps I was visiting were not necessarily the platforms to best represent me. And, quite frankly, at 23 and 24 I. Knew. It. All. Or so I thought.

 

The fact of the matter is…
