My Blackness and President Obama: A Letter

Don’t Boo, Vote.

If you don’t vote, you’re letting someone else have control. Let’s keep it short, sweet, and simple. I procrastinate. I’m human. However, with this election, I have become a parent, a leader, an old person quite frankly with me stressing how important it is to vote. This year of literally all years. I saw on twitter someone saying that this election day is like the season finale of America. It’s so true! It’s a big deal and who knows what next season will be like, but the world is watching and hopefully hoping we don’t fuck this up. I high key don’t care if you think Hillary is a liar, I do too, but we have to band together to make sure Trump and his actual minions of supporters, some who used to be my friends,  don’t step foot in that office.

For a while, I thought my registration didn’t go through, and I stopped caring about making sure it did. Until I saw this Buzzfeed video, about mass shootings in America, and I went straight into the description box, into this link, and registered to vote (again, but I didn’t know that at the time). Watch it, even though Buzzfeed is problematic, this was heartfelt and powerful.

So, I won’t try to explain further why you should register, because I’m sure others have done it, and done it well, so please watch/read what they have to say. All you have to Google is “Why I should Vote”.

I have links for you, and I hope you look into them. Don’t boo, vote.

Sophomore year is here, and the only thing that has changed is my dorm room. If you’ve seen my previous dorm room tour, you’ll spot a lot of things that are the same, but I thought I might as well make an update post. Here is my new dorm room tour and a few de-stressing tips.

The Games of the XXXI Olympiad

Listen & Read:

“Don’t Stop Me Now”- Queen

“Catch and Release” (the deepend remix)- Matt Simons

“The Girl from Ipanema” – Stan Getz


From August 6-21, the Olympics took place in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Of course, I was in front of the screen on the NBC channel for 90 percent of the time, and so I want to write about it. In kind of a part II of my previous Olympics-based post, here is the Olympics through my eyes.

Or “F Triple G” as the youth likes to call it.*


Read & Listen:

“(One of those) Crazy Girls”- Paramore

“Snaggle Tooth”- Vance Joy

“Can’t Help Falling in Love”- Haley Reinhart


Unless you have a head on your shoulders that’s screwed on tight, you’re going to know what I’m talking about. A person’s face might pop up in your mind, but most of us know the feeling of liking a celebrity, possibly liking them too much, and then finding out they aren’t single… Jealousy is a bitch.
