No one cares. It’s been a hard realization for me, but I think it’s time I finally learn to accept this. I’m even convinced God Himself wants me to live a life of solitude. I know no one will read this post. It will just be one of the things left behind. Anyone who ‘cares’… Continue reading The Pain of Loneliness
Hello WordPress! Have you missed me? I've been gone for quite some time now...and A LOT of things have happened. Besides surviving a pandemic, my husband and I welcomed another beautiful baby girl into the world (more info on that unexpected pregnancy later on). My last post about my motherhood journey to my first daughter… Continue reading Neck Deep in Motherhood
Dear Yani, Do you know how much I love you? Can it even be measured? What system can contain the amount of love I have for you? My greatest accomplishment. My legacy. Oftentimes I stare at you while you are asleep and think, "Wow. I made this." I am in awe of you. Oftentimes I… Continue reading A Letter to My Daughter
Well...actually the parts I'm referring to are collectively called a Vulva, but you know what I mean. **trigger warning** This post mentions sexual abuse. Be kind to yourself and take heed before proceeding. Baby Chick is a girl and I couldn't be happier. All I can think is, "Exactly how many headbands is too many… Continue reading It’s Called a VAGINA!
How? How can you restore years...hopes...dreams? This is a question I pondered while watching Ava DuVernay's Netflix series "When They See Us", but it especially echoed in my heart while watching Oprah's interview of the real life men of the Central Park 5 case, better known now as The Exonerated Five. If you haven't watched… Continue reading Restoring Innocence

Somehow it feels more...personable. Maybe it's because I'm an introvert and would rather be able to communicate with others without actually having to engage in verbal conversation.… Continue reading I Miss You!
So...I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I've been pretty MIA from the blogging world for a couple of months (like, 2, Laketra...let's not be dramatic lol). Besides still adjusting to life back in Florida, I have FINALLY obtained enough courage to start a new hobby: YouTube Although I will spend a lot of… Continue reading Abandoning WordPress for Youtube?
Hello blogging world! I've missed you! What have you been up to? Me? Oh, you know...just moving over 1000 miles away from my place of residence for the past 5 years. In one of my last posts I announced that my husband and I would be moving to Florida (you can read about it here).… Continue reading How’s Florida?!
Someone recently joked that I've been threatening this day since I arrived in Cincinnati 5 years ago -- I guess now I'm making good on that threat lol! You read the title correctly: I am moving back to Florida (in September 2018). My husband, with bittersweet feelings, accepted a position as a Senior Software Engineer… Continue reading Moving Back to Florida
