As the first game of my lacrosse season begins today, so does the stress of having zero time. It's only Monday and I'm already having anxiety and feeling rushed. I have three games alone this week, and not to mention classes and presentations that I have to do, and papers that I have to write. On... Read more »

Normally my day is thoroughly routine; I go to work, I go to school, and then I commute home and throughout this daily activity I can't help but notice the angry and rude attitudes of people, a.k.a. the New Yorkers. I am Brooklyn born, Bronx raised girl who has always had a love/hate relationship with... Read more »

Imagine walking out the house in questionable clothing or finding yourself in an awkward position in a public space. Making a bold statement of love or declaration of what you believe, which have you in the most vulnerable state possible, does not guarantee respect. You pull out your smart phone to check... Read more »

Baby Mama Drama!

I hate the term "Baby Momma". I hate the fact that women don't aspire to be more than that. This day and age, it angers me to hear people say that they don't want to be married. However they have about 2 to 3 children already. Is that backwards or what? I am in no way passing judgment on the... Read more »

Breaking Up With Your Best Friend

I’m afraid I have to break up with my best friend. Calling him my best friend at this point lacks the scale of which our relationship has soared in the decade I’ve known him. He is easily the JD to my Turk, the James Franco to my Seth Rogan; unfortunately I’m beginning to think we’re growing... Read more »

This past winter break was definitely bizarre to say the least. I have never been a huge fan of winter break because the only thing that I do is sit at home and binge watch the latest season of some crappy reality TV show while obsessing about how I think I’m getting fat. This past break didn’t seem... Read more »

My entire life, I never looked like the typical little girl. You all know that I am really short, I already explained that. I have never looked like the pretty blonde Barbie girl. I have wanted to, and I tried making all the un-surgical enhancements, but I never was the person, I wanted to be. Being... Read more »

It is my belief that most people would agree that from about mid-January, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, until the end of February, which is Black history month, there is an influx of black ethnic programming and observance around the nation. With director, Ava Duvernay’s electrifying... Read more »
