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.

Turmeric Tuesday

Turmeric

Today we talk about turmeric…
Turmeric? I know some people haven’t heard of this word, much less of the herb, but turmeric is one of the main ingredients found in curry. Belonging to the ginger family (which I didn’t even know, but should’ve due to its shape, but that’s what happens when you get it in the powder or ground form of course; how was I suppose to know 🤷🏽‍♀️), turmeric is a plant native to South-east Asia, prominently, India. You’ll also find this plant grown in China, Jamaica, Haiti, Peru, and Indonesia.

Therapy Thursday: Mental Health a Taboo to the African American Culture

2019-05-02 (3)
We now live in an era where we can see what’s going on in most parts of the world by pulling out a cell phone. It seems like every day there’s a new breaking story from a different part of the world that just shatters our hearts and toys with our spirits. It would be reasonable to say that what we see on TV, social media, and other platforms, definitely has an effect on our moods, but we fail to realize how it affects our mental health. As African Americans, we are becoming more aware of these issues, yet it still feels like taboo to discuss them due to stigmas, lack of knowledge on mental health, and simply not enough African Americans speaking out about the matter.

World News Wednesday: Venezuela Protest

Today we talk about the protest going on in Venezuela.
Now, if you’ve been following me, back in January, I did a flash news report on different countries uprising against their current elected leaders. There’s so much corruption going on in the world and it seems like it’s all happening at the same time, but today we focus on Venezuela.
