|That moment when you realize going |
"above and beyond" for your job is a bad idea.
2) Pain is a hell of a drug. Loving yourself is a full-time job, 24/7, 365. You have to work at it. Anyone who says anything else is a damn lie. Sometimes sadness can be seductive, your pity parties seem like a good idea, and you'll live in that mess until you get tired of being less than. Writing from that place can be therapeutic, but that's not what I created this blog for. #NoDrakeSh8t
3) I want to impress you people. It's true. I appreciate every single person who has read a post on this blog ever, and I didn't want to post just anything, especially as the time continued to roll by. I have about 10 posts still in "Draft" mode.
4) The Petty Games and Location Reconciliation. In case you missed it, I moved to Denver, CO as a digital media consultant in 2014. Colorado is beautiful. I dated a born-again Christian and a Canna-preneur in the same year. I lived with an "occasional" coke using 40-something, an alcoholic flight attendant, a bald-headed sociopath, and now a fairly normal person who cooks relentlessly, but doesn't take out the trash. (Who doesn't love fruit flies AmIright?) I've thought about relaxing my hair. I've thought about changing my style. I've laughed to keep myself from crying about White liberalism. I once took 3 buses and 2 hours to get beauty supplies. I've found the best M&Ms cookie and ice cream I've ever had, (not in the same place). I grew green onions by accident. I've read people for filth and dismissed them because I recognize abuse when I see it. I've kept a small circle and decided to find something good in almost every day, no matter how odd it may feel to celebrate my natural Black ass. Colorado is beautiful, but the grass isn't always greener, sometimes it's fake.
Besides, everybody loves a comeback right? ;)
