(I STILL LONG FOR) YOUR HAND IN MINE 1. I’m happy to be working, honestly, I am. I am just so tired at the end of the day that it’s almost not worth it. I’m hoping that after this assignment ends, I can take a bit of the money I’ve made and invest it into a couple of (legitimate) affiliate marketing progams. Passive income (or rather, income that’s more passive than...

THE WEDDING Last night was a night to remember. I cried, I laughed and I partied hearty at the reception. Noor looked so beautiful— a flowing white strapless dress, her flowing black silky hair, and the biggest, biggest smile on a face you ever did see. She was in tears as her father walked her down the aisle but you could tell that her heart was bursting with joy. Jon said the most...

bananasfoster42: youcanteatbread: noraleah: My kids are going to come out of the womb loving everything. How fun will it be to “introduce” them to foods in utero? And now today, lil’ peanut, we’re learning about the flavors of Western China…. “Things like vanilla, carrot, garlic, anise, mint — these are some of the flavors that have been shown to be transmitted to amniotic fluid or...
I SHOULD WORK ON SPEAKING TOO SOON This week has flown by me! It’s the first week I’ve been back to work, and it has been nice. This assignment is perfect— at an office but not behind a desk, with co-workers that mind their own business. Even the hour long commute on the bus isn’t too horrible (but it’s not winter yet, so I should hold my tongue until then). The...

I’ve gotta say that the amount of other Black women wearing their natural hair in my neighborhood really encourages me :D Today I saw at least 30 women of all ages with all different hairstyles all over town— at work, on the bus to work, at the gym and on the street. I’m so glad that women that are embracing what they have are becoming both more in number and more visible!
I GET ALONG WITHOUT YOU VERY WELL (EXCEPT, SOMETIMES) I feel like I’m over him…. but that’s probably because I haven’t seen him in six weeks. A week from tonight, both of us are going to be dressed to the nines at his cousin’s wedding and the only thing I can think about is whether or not I’ll be able to handle it if I see him dancing with another girl. The...

“THIS ONE’S FOR REAL/ I ALREADY BOUGHT THE DREAM;” 1. Yesterday, after spending all morning on every job board I can think of, I got a phone call from that temp agency I do work for. “Are you available for the next three weeks?” “YES.” I didn’t even care what the assignment was. Fortunately, it’s tolerable; it’s three weeks at a law...
jocelynseip replied to your post: Three dress sizes down, two to go! Size 18 to size… HOW? Hey Jocelyn! I have talked about my current regimen here, here and also here at my fitspiration blog. Keep in mind that: a) the regimen I’ve been following is really strict and therefore not for everyone Although I’m never hungry, I have injured myself twice. b) I have been active...

I really appreciate your blog. I appreciate you reading it :) Sometimes I don’t feel like anyone else relates to how I feel about something, but I’m glad to find that to not be true.
pleasegoaway replied to your post: One of my old friends from adolescence is engaged… Yeah, this past weekend I literally was the only single person hanging out with THREE PAIRS of dating couples mini-golfing. Next weekend? I’m awkwardly tagging along with my friend and her boyfriend to Vegas. Itss been comical. Almost staged I have been in situations like that too. Moving across town has...
One of my old friends from adolescence is engaged to be married to his girlfriend. I used to have feelings for him when I was 17. We practically almost dated. Am I jealous? No. I’m glad that he has found someone who really loves him. I can’t quite explain why hearing the news made me want to cry. I think it’s because so much has changed within such a short period of time. He...

Today, my parents attended the funeral of some guy they knew back in college. This fellow died in his sleep at 46 years old. He was about 800 pounds at the time of his death. He was apparently a really good person, because he’s one of the few people my father bothered to keep in touch with from their past. I think it is a tragedy. As I’ve mentioned before, both of my parents are morbidly...

Fat Acceptance is Hogwash →
As someone who is overweight, and who have parents who have been obese all of their adult lives, I completely and totally agree with this. I know that I don’t owe a size 6 figure to anyone and that media expectations of what women are supposed to look like are unrealistic at best. I know that the government has no real interest in public health and is all about making money from consumer...

“I’M SO IN LOVE WITH THIS DIRTY CITY, ITS CRAZY GRIT OF DESIRE” I spent the day preaching with C & A, which was awesome. C & A are my favourite married couple— young like me, thoroughly in love with each other and fun to hang out with. Blue Eyes joined us later for pho, as well as that girl who was trapped between me and Sal that one day in field service. It was a...

more about my hair:
I have been natural for a little over a year this month. How has it been? Enlightening, dizzying, frustrating, awesome, inspiring, impatient, liberating. I cut almost all of my hair off a year ago. Over the course of this year, I’ve been growing it back. I learned a lot about what my hair likes and doesn’t like, and what it does and does not do. For example, the texture of my hair...
