ive been having a moment since sunday
i was trying to not speak about it until some of the content was uploaded to here but i cant.
intrinsicintentions brother put on an artist showcase of poets, musicians, dancers and visual artists and it was SUPER inspiring to see everyone express themselves AND to see how certain artists have grown since the last time ive seen them perform
So since Sunday ive been doing an inventory of my friends and acquaintances and I’m really proud of how everyone is steady moving in the direction of their dreams, even if they gotta take baby steps and despite adversity they keep going. I’m proud to know and have access to their light.
Im surrounded and connected to so much goodness and I’m trying to acknowledge those same people (verbally) as often as i can
i though about my other post and i wanna clean it up a little…
i can see a dude being honest about his sexual health “in the moment” if he values and respects himself and/or the other person”
my previous comment just speaks to the lame dudes ive met that lied about the simplest things so much so that i’d imagine they would lie about something like this
semi random blurb
idk man… it really isnt enough to just ask someone if they have a disease or not and ESPECIALLY if y’all are caught up in “the moment”…
i cant even imagine a dude sayin “yes, i do” if it were about to go down.
hearin/ reading stories about people knowingly spreading STDs and STIs makes me super paranoid.
and you can say “wait for marriage” all you want but you dont know someone until you know them.
a lady once shared with the youth group at my church that she waited for her husband (that she met in her late teens and married in her 20s) and one day he told her she had to get tested cause he had HIV. that’s f*cked up.
UGH!!!! men!!! and people!!!
omg guys there are two different Black women from Tumblr here with me and we’re all on the same row at the Black women in comics panel at the festival THIS IS AMAZING
I wish I saw this when you posted!!!
so today i went to the Black Comic Book Festival in Harlem and im sittin the the audience with my friends waiting for the panel about “Black Women in Comics” to start when all of a sudden I hear some chick laughin MAD hard and MAD loud.
i look over to my right like “who da heck is being so loud!” and you know who it was sittin like 3 chairs over?
magnacarterholygrail!!! LOL it was so funny because her face was priceless when she saw me…and i gave her a big ol’ hug cause she is Naia and why wouldn’t you?
i didnt even know she was gonna be there
and that’s how Naia contributed to my day of Black Excellence :)
black tumblr is small and black tumblr in NYC is even smaller lol i bet we cross each other’s paths more often than not
ive been kinda really low key on social media lately… i had to really focus on things
BUT I have great news to share
first is that i got an internship with an children’s film festival!
(its unpaid and part time but seems REALLY promising)
second is i got into college! (again) going for my BA in Spanish
i never saw myself going back to school especially with the amount of student debt I have BUT I see this as an opportunity to gain a real command of the language. North American and European countries are not the only ones making cartoons and entertainment for children. I can do study abroad programs and really get my feet wet and more understanding this part of my culture.
so there it is… I’m an intern and a 2nd time college student >.<
im always in the disney store
lookin for Tiana and Pocahontas merchandise.
i mean LOOKING for their sets and cups and dolls
they either are not apart of some of the sets or Disney produces an extreme limited amount thus making it more difficult to actually buy/see some of these particular princesses stuff
You’re so funny & sweet. My selfies & original text posts never go unloved as long as you’re around lol. Also you’re sooooo pretty & you give me hair envy!
I feel the Jell-O shots kicking in already
I hope you all bring the New Year well!
Also I had an interview and i honestly feel I got it
Jar of Fearlessness
This morning I watched Monique’s 2013 Jar of Goodness Reveal. I think it’s an awesome idea to record all the great things that happen throughout the year but for 2014 I’m going to do it with a twist. Every time I conquer my fears and do something that I am afraid to do, I am going to record it and put it in my jar.
2014 is all about boldness and bravery and taking advantage of opportunities.
Oh this is a GREAT twist on the jar!
I love it!
