Love Lessons: Learn it. Live it.

One of the worst feelings I’ve probably ever experienced with a significant insignificant other is being in love alone. Feeling or caring deeply about another person who can’t/won’t/doesn’t reciprocate. I’ll never forget the last time I wore my heart on my sleeve and a guy metaphorically ripped that shirt off and A-Town stomped on it. …

Fresh Start: Job vs. Career. Passion plus Purpose

Timing has always been a bitch. It has never been on my side. Whether something was a waste of time, the wrong point in time or just not having time period. Finally. Fiy-nuh-leeeeeee. Time has gotten on board with the kid. Just to give a quick run down of my last 5 years in the career world: …

Dear Black Man: Bullets and Jail Bars

Dear Black Man, I pray for you everyday. I pray for your protection. That God protects your body from bullets and jail bars. From trigger happy authorities who seek to steal your life. They’d rather take you off this earth than watch you grow up and become better men than them, than their fathers, than …

Post-Independence Day: Find your Freedom

Well Happy Belated Birthday Amurica… I’m truly happy you’ve gotten your freedom. Now, now I’d like to have my freedom. *cues Beyonce* I feel like I spend  a lot of time wondering what the difference is between myself and those who I view as “successful”.  One of my favorite quotes in regards to that thought: …

Pre-Independence Day: Fuck Adulthood.

Man fuck adulthood. I wish someone had told me as a child that this shit is a trap. I’m 27, man-less, child-less, at a job I just did a career change to this year after being unemployed for half the year before. Though I managed to successfully swerve student loans, credit card debt and a car …

I Ain’t Got No Type–Lie Again.

I hate, excuse me, I loathe when guys ask: “So what type of guy do you like?” In my mind, I instantly cue the song “I ain’t got no type” but if I really think about it, I actually do. Most guys that I’ve ever been in a relationship/whatevership with have been fairly similar as …

Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing: Friend or Foe?

Sometimes you already know the truth about a situation, but you just refuse to accept it. I find that I do this a lot. I say, oh I don’t know we’ll see, but I be knowing. After 27 years of living, I  think I’ve finally learned my learning style…. I only learn the hard way. …

It Goes Down in the DMs: The Truth about Community D

So here recently after some intense girl talk, I’ve determined that it does indeed go down in the DM. Social media has made your average person 100 times more accessible and appealing, and with nothing but cyber space and opportunity, nobodies think they’re somebodies and all the wires have been crossed. There is no such …

People Presents: Unwrapping the Truth

I truly think that every person is a gift and has a gift. Depending on how a gift is wrapped, people tend to judge the quality of what’s inside it. Think about it like Christmas time when you were a child. Chances are you snuck under the tree when your parents weren’t looking to see …

Ashley’s Anecdotes: Baby Mama Brawl…Butt Ass Naked Pt 2

I finally make it “home” and was there all of 3 days before we get into fight. I honestly don’t even remember why we were fighting, I was probably being needy, tired of asking him to spend quality time with me (because that’s my love language). He left one night, didn’t come home. I’m sitting …

Ashley’s Anecdotes: Baby Mama Brawl…Butt Ass Naked

So almost exactly a year ago I published That’s Not Yo Bae Bish where I mentioned a bunch of situations that were seemingly hypothetical, but were actually real life events. I promise, I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried. At the time I said that I would do a slow leak where I …

Message to the Side-Chick/New Girl

So I figure I can’t be the only one who has ever had a man (now an ex) be like “you don’t event have to worry about her, we’re just <insert lying ass statement here>” only for him to turn around and do some ole fuck shit with the same girl you weren’t supposed to …
