It's currently 12:45 am, Tuesday February 21st 2017. I am propped up at my desk, sipping on Celestial Chamomile tea (thanks to my bro and his wife for getting me hip), while thinking of what to say in this post. Ten minutes earlier, I was going through my closet picking out clothes for the morning: … Continue reading Answering the call I never asked for
When it comes to budgeting, I might be up there with the best of em. Don’t get me wrong, life happens, but that shouldn’t stop you from being as prepared as possible. I use a couple iPhone/Android apps in combination with Excel to get my budget in order. I can email the spreadsheet to anyone … Continue reading Life Hack #3: Budgeting Tools
February has been a great month for me thus far. Work is transitioning well as I have settled into my new role and have an assigned market (hello Philadelphia), and my friends and family are doing great! Although it seems like I have it together on paper, I have been praying to God for the … Continue reading Prayer Works: My Public Speaking Fear
Yet again, it’s Black History Month. Every year I sit and think of more ways to increase awareness of my history, and not just the history I’m “allowed” to read about, but the history of our unspoken heroes as well. I know, “why wait until February?” That’s a valid question which I am not ashamed … Continue reading Devin Allen and the Shot that scaled the fence
I caught on to Boomerang pretty late, but it ascended to the top of my must-watch movies after the first viewing. I always gravitate towards transcendent figures and do my research on all their work. Eddie Murphy was the king of raw comedy (in my opinion) and I felt he cracked Hollywood’s color barrier with … Continue reading If Boomerang had a Sequel….
I click baited the mess out of this title. I was listening to the Bad Boy 20th Anniversary Box Set album and heard “24 Hrs. to live” by Mase, Black Rob, Lox, and DMX, quickly becoming pensive. I don’t know if I have 24 hours to live simply because God can call at any moment, … Continue reading 24 Hours To Live
So, I’m going through a phase with women right now (chill out cuhh, I’m straight). Either I meet a decent woman with boring conversation or the other way around. I also find myself attracting younger women who like to dive head first into the land of the DM's with no helmet or regard for collision … Continue reading Shoot Ya Shot 2017 Campaign
I have to start off by saying how biased I was with my book selection. I gravitated towards this title solely based on my Nigerian ethnicity and heightened awareness of influential women. Nonetheless, anyone can pick this book up and fall in love with it like I did. I borrowed this from my sister Jeanny … Continue reading Bitter Leaf by Chioma Okereke
What an eventful weekend it was! Not only did I have a 3-day weekend, but I also commemorated the late Dr. King on Monday by attending a couple of service and discussion events. I met some new faces, ate good food and picked up a new book to read. The weekend kicked off with my … Continue reading MLK Weekend 2017 Recap.
