Say Something… my take on why black lives matter

  There are times when we are left with no words to convey the overflow of emotions that fills us. No words because to utter a word, would cause something akin to a volcanic explosion to erupt inside of us. This is pretty much how I felt when Alton Sterling and Philando Castile lost their […]

“It’s been a long time…

If you are from my day then you know the rest of the lyrics, “I shouldn’t have left you without a strong [post] to step to”. Like Eric B and Rakim wanted to keep the beats coming, I want to keep the blog posts coming, but sometimes life gets in the way of what we […]

Look at what I made!

For this school teacher, Spring Break does not actually mean going on an awesome vacation. For me, it actually means get your crap together because this is really the last time you’re going to have off from now until Memorial Day (a mouthful, right?).  Well, it’s true,  and a part of me getting my crap together actually includes […]

Wow, it’s the end of March!

You were mostly amazing… I have come to call the 3rd month of 2016 my month of growth. Not only did I became a year older, I became wiser, and I became better. I set out to make this month, all 31 days of it, a celebration, and for the most part I did. The first […]

“I’m not your Superwoman!”

  A page from the earlier chapters of my life… When I was back in junior high school, I had a boyfriend (who shall remain nameless). He was actually my first boyfriend, and our story is not really all that different from others I have heard. Let’s see. Boy likes girl. Girl starts to like boy. Boy and […]

30 Days of Love!

Me and my hubby in 2008 (we were so cute) Yes, as we all know, February is the month for love! And because I am not always the easiest person to love or to show love (especially) when it comes to my spouse, I thought that a love challenge would be just the thing to […]

A Teacher’s Rant!

  Usually when I tell people that I am a teacher, they respond by saying something like this: “Oh really, I’m sorry,” “God bless you,” or “They just need to pay y’all better.”  Every once in a while, someone might have some encouraging words to share, but for the most part, the responses are usually really […]
