Life is an art, and you’re an artist, so create a masterpiece. I am still working on my masterpiece… I'm a goofy, zealous, and unique individual. I enjoy the simplicities of life. I love the skin that I am in and have no shame in it. I won't judge you, that's God's job. Who am I to judge you anyway? No judgement here. Just love and understanding. I think sarcasm needs to be considered a language, an I feel that laughter is one of the best medicines in the world. Music, poetry, and God are the reasons why I have love in my heart still, an I have an overly dramatic chihuahua, Kalì, who lights up my day. Overall, I'm a down to earth chick who enjoys a good meal, with some wine and video games (PS4).I enjoy talking about current affairs (or a less intense version of politics is how I like to think of it), community development, music, and anything that stimulates the mind really.

Work of Art Wednesday: Fat Bat Dana

I truly don’t know what it is about this character (actually I do know what it is), but I gravitated towards Dana from the first time I seen a picture of her. I believe the reason why I gravitated to her was because she reminded me of me. Her style and personality somewhat reflects mine.

When I was younger and beginning my teen phase, I was that black girl who didn’t talk or act black according to my black peers. I dressed like a punk rocker or goth (there’s clearly a difference between the Punk and Goth culture), enjoyed anime, was somewhat of a demagogue who had a very witty and sarcastic personality (still do), and was a lover of rock music. This depiction of a black girl was a taboo during my era. I wasn’t allowed to exist in the world according to society, yet I did.
