Just Checking In.....




Ya'll it has been soooooo long since I've written anything on this site! I don't know who out there follows my personal blog but I just wanted to check in and say hello and update ya'll on what has been going on in my crazy world. 

I've been channeling all my creativity and writing into my new blog that I created two years ago with my twin sis called The Double Scoop. Check it out here! Both of us have been blogging individually since about 2012 but we decided to put our twin brains together and create something much bigger than just a blog. We are trying to build an empire and leave a legacy....ya dig? Both of us are lovers of music and film so our new blog focuses on that as well as lifestyle/personal topics like I write on this blog. We cover events and spotlight people making moves as entrepreneurs and just creatives in general putting in work for their passions and hustles. 

Our blog/media company is really growing and I'm proud of the progress. I'm not going to write a book on my first post since being gone for so long,but I'm going to do better with posting more consistently. I think I'm going to revamp the look of this site too. I have so much to share so stay tuned! I hope ya'll have been doing well. I'll be back soon! Much love!!

Is Cheating Inevitable?

When most people think about what it means to cheat in a relationship, they automatically think about having sex with another person outside their relationship; but cheating is so much more than just sex. Have you ever made a strong connection with another person while you were in a relationship to the point that you thought about that person frequently and started to develop feelings for that person? What if it got to the point where you started to lose interest in the person with whom you were in a relationship? Have you ever texted or talked on the phone with someone you were attracted to, someone unknown to your man or woman? A lot of people say they have control over how far they will allow a situation to go, but eventually after spending so much time with another person to whom you are attracted and with whom you have a connection, emotions tend to get involved. I think developing a strong emotional relationship with another person is just as much cheating as having a sexual rel…

Dreams..........

One of my old classmates reached out to me in November and asked me to check out a track called "Dreams." I didn’t get a chance to listen to it until mid-December, but I must say when I finally heard the song I was impressed. Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m an avid music lover, especially when the music has meaning. "Dreams" is without a doubt a song with substance; it definitely speaks to the mind of the conscious thinker. The song sheds light on certain taboo issues in the black community, issues people are reluctant to address. These issues include the constant occurrence of senseless violence and people’s lack of morals and priorities. The verse below which is actually one of my favorite verses on the track speaks on one of those issues:

“We conditioned to the violence…… black and brown riots, to the point that our alliance follows moments of silence, and it’s sad that the people never see the evil…….. so long as the Gucci belt matches the Evisu.”

I Really Wanted To Love The Tupac Movie......

Ya'll I really wanted to love All Eyez On Me.  I wanted all of the years we waited for the movie to be made to be worth it, but I was so disappointed with the outcome. When I saw the low ratings and negative reviews I got a little worried but still decided to see the movie on opening day because I wanted to give the film a chance. About 30 minutes in I felt like I was watching a Lifetime movie! I told myself with the movie being over 2 hours there was still a possibility it could get better and it did slightly..... but that was mainly because of the concert scenes and music.

I honestly thought the movie was wack, rushed (storytelling aspect), corny, and not well written. No disrespect to the production team, writers, and cast but that's just my opinion. It annoys me when some people say you're hating or you are not old enough and that's why you can't appreciate the movie. That's not the case. True enough when Tupac died I was still a kid but as I got older I was…
