Over the past year.


Changes in my hair (HEAT DAMAGE!)

Since moving back to Wisconsin I’ve noticed my hair has changed so much and I’m at a loss! My curls aren’t popping, they’re limp and lifeless.

After moving back I got a sew-in to protect it during the winter months, but that didn’t last long because I know nothing about weave, and I’m not comfortable with them. Anyway after that I began straightening my hair on a regular basis, and on top of that I got highlights-using bleach- and continued flat ironing. Now I can’t get this stuff to bounce back!!😩😩😩

So I’m on a journey to bring my hair back to life, and try not to cut it off all at once. Hopefully I don’t have to big chop again, but it’s nothing if I do, I miss my TWA!

If you have any suggestions on how to return my hair to its healthy big curly state please comment!!

Rapper’s racist photo holds valuable lesson for America

For the record, Budden is a 33-year-old adult.

The photo was taken during an airport security check, and deductive reasoning — along with the fact that I wasn’t born yesterday — suggests that Budden’s “Not on my watch Homeboy !” caption is a thinly veiled suggestion that this man is a terrorist.

Since racist jokes are always hilarious and never bother anyone, Budden seemed surprised that the Twitterverse had some withering comments about him.

What I find to be dope is that he heard out the concerns being thrown at him. I mean, THAT is how to dispel your ignorance; instead of getting caught in your feelings, being defensive, you listen, learn, apologize, and just DO better because it is right. He could never take away what he said/did, and this isn’t a cookie I’m giving out, I just mean to say he now sees the ignorance in what he said now and I am down for the lack of egocentricity in learning.

We all make mistakes. It’s admitting to those mistakes and learning from them that helps us grow.

None of these are true

Last week Long Island teenager Kwasi Enin captured national headlines after becoming part of an impressive club: high school seniors who have been accepted into all eight Ivy League schools. However, while many celebrated Enin’s achievement, a bitter minority griped that the teenager had somehow gamed the system. The racial subtext was obvious: Enin couldn’t have actually have gotten into all those schools by himself. Why? Well, because he’s black.

Randomly going through my pics and found @_courtneylynn___ staring at me. I am honestly so blessed to have this amazing woman as my younger sister. She is an inspiration to me in so many ways. Although we may argue and see the world in different ways, you bring so much joy into my life with all of your support and love-not to mention you created my favorite person on the planet! I love my sister.
