Who Ain’t Got No Job: For the Broke, Broken & Unemployed

I think that I have FINALLY gotten to a place where I can talk about one of my most trying times in 2015. To be honest, before I was entirely too embarrassed and felt way too vulnerable and defeated to share my struggle. But today I’ll be 100% transparent because my testimony might be something …

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 …

Playing the Hand you’re Dealt: Present vs. Potential

So I consider myself to be a pretty good judge of character, but I have made the GRAVE mistake in thinking that a good judge of character is synonymous with a good judge of men choice. I have made piss poor choices in men every since I stopped thinking they were stupid and gross in …

Let that Hurt Go: Lessons in Learning your Lesson

Anybody else out there have really realistic dreams or should I say nightmares? I find that what I often try to suppress in my conscious mind often seeps into my subconscious, so either way I’m forced to deal with it. I won’t tell the story of what dream I just woke up from for fear …

#FBF If It Walk Like a Duck

You know what time it is! In preparation for my new series this month focused on “Why Do Men Cheat”, today’s flashback Friday post is called “If It Walk Like a Duck”. Click here to see the post.    When someone shows you who they are, believe them. -Mya Angelou.  Also co-signed by Oprah (above), …

Tis’ the Season

Tis’ the season to be jolly… not broke. If you ever once forgot that you were broke, the holidays will kindly remind you. I’m currently “broke with a bachelor’s and aiming for a master’s”. So the other day, I was trying to figure out what I was going to get my loved ones for Christmas …

What is a Bae?

More recently the term “Bae” has been floating off the lips of damn near every single ready to mingle person I know.  I want to emphasize the fact that I said every single (as in not in a relationship) person I know, because the truth is, there ain’t no couples out there only referring to their …

Stop Recycling…Lovers

I’m so disappointed in myself. I fear that I am on the path to do just what I said I would never do again… recycle ex-baes. It’s about to be that time of the year again, “cuffing season” the point in time where the weather gets colder and the desire to have someone to lay …

50 Shades of Grey: The Whatevership Saga

Alright, so it’s that time again: I can’t sleep I need to vent Mother Nature is kicking my emotional and physical ass So, I feel like it’s safe to say that most women have experienced a whatever-ship in their lives. A whatever-ship is somewhere between a real relationship and a mixed signals/emotions/friends-with-benefits setup. I like …

Where Dey at Doe?

Wrote this blog about a year ago (year ago *schmoney dance*) Oftentimes I wish I was born in a different decade. One where the men cared to be men and court a lady. I’m reallllly into that whole “I’m gonna make you my lady by any means necessary” mentality that men seem to have lost. …

Captain Save-A-Hoe 2.0

Everybody knows how much I despise hoes, but for those who don’t know… I could go in about how your vagina is a revolving door; welcoming any visitor that pushes hard enough to bust those doors wide open. And she is a revolving door because referencing her as a car with excessive mileage would indicate …

Cuffing Season Over – Season Recap

So I think it’s safe to say that cuffing season is officially over. (cuffing season. n. A period in time, usually during the winter months, where individuals find a significant other/ boo, to spend time with.) I guess you can say I got pseudo “cuffed”. I entertained a couple of guys. And have since ceased …

About Last Friday-FML

So let me tell you about the f*ckery that was one of my Fridays. I just feel the need to share the course of events that day because it was such a debacle, truly an “FML” (f*ck my life) moment. If you know me, then you know I have a lot of those but that …

For Colored Girls Who Struggle with Weight Loss

Weight loss. Weight gain. Toe-may-toe. Toe-mahh-toe. Same difference. Over the last 3-4 years my weight has been yo-yo(ing) like nobody’s business. I went from being my heaviest in 2010 where I’d gained about 40 lbs in college, to losing 20+ lbs over the next 2 years and looking good in 2012. Then life threw me …

Falling in Love with the Representative

My feelings for you were like honey dripping from a wooden spoon into a bowl of sweet unbaked desserts. Slow and sensual, raw and warm. I’d look into your eyes and my heart would ignite and send tingles all over my body. Everything felt like a fairy tale. Magically unbelievably believable. Every day thoughts of …

Thoughts of a Serial Girlfriend

One of the few things I like about getting older, is learning more about yourself. You never realize just how young and dumb you were at one point until you start to get old and wise. I’m woman enough to confess that I was relationship(ally) dumb. Thank God I’m smarter now, but that thang was …

Does Size Matter?

Alright, today’s topic is a sensitive one. I’m asking does size really matter… And before I get started, get your minds out of the gutter, ya nasties. I’m talking about body size/stature. J/k, I’m also talking about “joysticks” (we’ll use this word for the sake of making this post a little less raunchy). In regards …
