Monday’s Motivation

The Watchers     In Life one thing is guaranteed; You’re going to meet people. All kinds of people. And some of them aren’t always going to have your 100% best interest at heart but they will smile in your face and laugh with you to keep appearances up. If you trust them you will share your dreams with them.… Read more →

A Society of Punks

I hated high school. There is no other time in my life where I have felt so out of place and awkward. However, I’m glad I’m not in high school now because we live in a world where one’s social life has to be in tact both within society and online. Could you imagine being the nerdy kid with a… Read more →

Judgment

As I was on my way into work today listening to my iPod the remix to the song Magic by Robin Thicke featuring Mary J. Blige popped up. I had completely forgotten about that song and wasn’t surprised that it was the remix because Mary is on there. And I stan hard for Mary. I was grooving. It made me… Read more →

The Responsibility of Fame

“For certain people fame lasts for a moment. For others it lasts for a lifetime. And for the rest it only lasts long enough to destroy them.” -BRRIII As a society we are obsessed with celebrities.

We’ve Got Love

In two months I will be celebrating my eight year anniversary.   Of being single. My last (and only) relationship was a good training ground for realizing what I will and won’t accept. And I do miss having that one person I can spend time with after dealing with the multitude of craziness at my job. Or someone I can… Read more →

You

When I sit and think about where I was five years ago it makes me wonder. At 30 years old I had just snuck back into Philly after completing a fabulous FREE trip around the world. I was about ten lbs skinnier, I had cornrows and a strange mountain man goatee. But inside I had become different. All of the… Read more →

Me Time

  I believe that it is 100% imperative to look at what’s going on in your life and decide what is working, what isn’t working, and what you can do to make yourself better. I will be the first to admit that I’ve got a lot going on in my world right now. Some things I’m doing really well while… Read more →
