True Life: I Am Addicted to Twitter

I have what some people would call a Twitter addiction. I tweet way too much all day every day, I will admit it, BUT Twitter is the best way to have any clue about what is happening on and around my college campus. Twitter is everything to me, it’s my comedy, my news source, and…

Spring Break 2017 ft. Food Ratings by Sasha 

Unfortunately, spring break 2017 I didn’t have any huge turn up plans. I went home and brought one of my best friends from school with me, Sasha. Fair warning, most of this trip involved eating. Saturday   We started our vacation, if you want to call it that, early on Saturday. Sasha had two goals, figure…

Why I’m Not Here for Adele’s “You Deserve It” Speech

First, some background. Album of the year has been awarded since 1959. In this time only 12 albums by black artists have received this high honor (3/12 were Stevie Wonder albums). Of those 12 only 3 have been black women. Actually, the last black woman to win the award was Lauryn Hill in 1999. Miss…

An Open Letter to HRC

Blueprint: Howard University Homecoming 2016

To be Young, Carefree, & Black

My mother raised me this way. She raised me to be a passionate young Black girl who loves her skin and her life. She’s trained me to be adventurous and curious, unafraid to travel & explore the world. She trained me to be this carefree being, long before the phrase was coined. However, there’s a…

My First Year at Howard University 

A couple of months ago I told you all how hard it was for me to make friends my entire life and I guess you could call this post an update of some sorts. My freshman year of college never scared me academically. The workload was bearable. Did I slip up occasionally? Of course, no…

Howard Is What I Make It

So if you don’t know by now I go to Howard University. The illustrious Howard University, the Mecca, that school Drake loves oh so much. I love Howard. I’ve loved Howard since that perfect trip during the Veterans Day weekend my Junior year of high school. So much Black beauty, so much Black history, and…
