I was messing around on Pinterest earlier, and saw a shirt that said "Dangerously Overeducated" and I have the strongest urge to go buy it for myself. I am the proud canvas to five tattoos, and soon will have some extra letters after my name (first J.D. and then Esq. in October!) Being educated and … Continue reading Educated & Inked

I left my job in the Mayor's Office in August in order to go to school full time for a semester to knock out some classes, and as of January 2018, I work in the Office of Councilmember Andrea Boone as … Continue reading I’m not calling it a come back…
I wrote this piece a few years ago one day while listening to one of my queens, Adele. This is based on her gorgeous "Someone Like You," which still brings me to tears.

She's also a Clinical Nurse Specialist. She's also a survivor. In short, she's a badass. When my mom was a little girl, … Continue reading Journey to Healthy Hearts: Inspiration from Mom

I'm gonna do better. I've got things to write about and things I feel passionate about, and these … Continue reading Wow.

In 2016 I will celebrate my 7 year anniversary with the Atlanta Metro area. In honor of that, … Continue reading My 2016 Resolutions

This semester I'll be taking a total of 11 hours: Constitutional Law II Property Law II Civil Procedure II Legislation So far in school I've used Microsoft Word to take class notes, but recently … Continue reading Spring Semester Goals
So I realize that I made this announcement about being better with the blog, and then proceeded to... do nothing. BUT, I promise there was a reason. I flew to Sacramento, my hometown, for Christmas/New Year's for the first time in two years. My trip home was great, I got to see a bunch of … Continue reading Saying Goodbye
So I'm realizing that I very much abandoned this blog. So sorry! BUT, one of my 2016 resolutions is to write more, especially non-academic writing, and since I already have this platform I might as well! My plan is to update at least once a week, with some allowances during finals season. The time since … Continue reading Please forgive the absence.
