The long weekend was coming to a close and I was getting ready for the work week. So I called my dad and told him “I sincerely do not feel like going to work.” He simply told me “Welcome to the real world.” I think it’s absolutely absurd that this is what so many of us consider the real world. The corporate way of thinking has truly weaved itself into the fabric of this nation, and it’s made everyone’s ambitions go down to sewage levels. If living in the real world means being miserable every time you get up in…

As the Independence Day festivities begin to come to a close and everyone begins to get ready for the work week, I just have to wonder how free we truly are. I was downtown, where a festival was being held, and I couldn’t help but shake my head.

I read something that said “The black community is often forced into immediate healing, without truly…

I for one will tell you, it’s hard for me not to have headphones in my ears while i’m scrolling all up and down my timeline on Twitter or Instagram (Sometimes Facebook, it’s got so confusing lately) as a matter of fact i’m doing it right now. I know it’s tough to put it down, because hey, it’s just something to do, but it’s really become an addiction. I believe that we are all holding ourselves back because of these things, and if we can shut it off every now and then, I believe a lot can be spoken to…

You know, no matter what you think about Kanye West at this point and time, you can’t hate on the man. Now a days he talks reckless, he’s very arrogant and selfish, but one thing I will say about him is that he follows his heart. At first I didn’t care much for his new shoes, but I must say, lately they’ve grown on me. I can’t say i’m a fan of the clothing line, but the shoes look great, and the rest of the world thinks that as well. When the Yeezy boosts dropped, I was someone who refused…

When I was in college, my best friend took me to a coffee shop. I had never been to a coffee shop before and we were going there to study, so this was all new to me. I always saw, and heard of Starbucks but I had never actually been in one. Once I stepped into this coffee shop, something about it felt very comfortable and inviting, but this place wasn’t Starbucks. It was a indie coffee shop, and it seemed to really be a popular place. Since that first time I stepped into an indie coffee shop, those are…
