Determination


Determination: The quality of being determined to do or achieve something; 
Deciding or controlling something's outcome or nature. 

Yesterday I saw this news report, Homeless Man hands out resume. This man is homeless and is looking for work. Instead of just sitting around and feeling sorry for himself he is putting extra effort into his job search by handling out his resume to people driving in Downtown L.A.

"B*tch Bad, Woman Good, Lady Better"



We can always count on Lupe Fiasco to give us the real. 
His message in this song is so relevant and necessary.

Forgiving Celebrities



In light of the recent domestic situation with Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson I started to think about all the celebrities that have been caught up in bad situations and the how we overlook their behavior because we love their music or are entertained by their talents.

"Smudge On The Window"




I am not your average girl, lady, women, female friend, lover, student. 
Nor do I hold a common dialogue spoken with every days words or slang. 
For I am the word unmentioned but I am the title that titles like 
girl, lady, women, and females friends inspire to be.

Colorado vs. Wisconsin


For those that know me personally you know that I am all about treating people equally and fair. So since Sunday this has been on my mind heavy...

I first heard about the Temple shooting in Wisconsin via twitter and I immediately starting flipping through the TV channels to get the full story. I figured because it was mid-day, on a Sunday that I probably wouldn't see any news stories until later that night; which I did.

But the coverage was short and to the point and then the news cast moved on to other stories of the day. It left me thinking, "Is that it? Six people are dead and the FBI is referring to the case as 'Domestic Terrorism' and the news only talks about it for 2 mins."

Be Healthy: Pineapple



The Health Benefits of Pineapple seem endless. You might know pineapple as a canned fruit that come in various slices. In reality, pineapple is a fruit composed of many flowers. The fruits of each flower circle around a single core; each fruit is characterized by a spiny part which we sometimes call as eyes.

Children from tropical countries know what a pineapple looks like. This is because the fruit grow best in humid climate and is readily available almost whole year round. For others, pineapple is just a simple canned fruit – or better yet a fruit shaped like Sponge Bob’s house.

Wait! What?!?!



Please read this first Dear Sistas, Give Gabby's Hair A Break and then you will understand my rant:

Are people really commenting on a 16-year-old girl's hair texture? I love my people, but sometimes I really can't with y'all. Gabby's hair looks fine. When I first starting seeing her, I never once thought anything about her hair. So I was literally shocked when I started seeing the negative comments on Twitter.
