Is it really a crime to want a man who earns more?
I am Lemonade
Disclaimer: This is not a thinkpiece. This is a me piece. "Your grandmother had a very hard life, you know," my mother said. I'd just learned that my grandma had been hospitalized for a minor issue that was a symptom of a chronic condition. I was taken aback. I'd always known that my grandmother, an assertive,… Continue reading I am Lemonade

School is Out
Alicia Keys’ “Lesson Learned” plays from my Spotify Web Player as my fingers hover over this keyboard- unsure about how to start or where to begin. I don’t have a plan for this entry. I don’t have any cute anecdotes or advice to give. I don’t feel very wise, right now. I woke up this morning… Continue reading School is Out
This is probably the most personal blog entry I will put up. To be honest, I don’t even want to post it but given the subject matter, I’d be the biggest hypocrite if I didn't.
