“Have you ever been depressed?” 32,000 feet in the air, my mom turned to me, clear-eyed and interested, and asked me this question. I thought to myself she doesn’t know? Well, of course, she doesn’t. I don’t exactly broadcast my mental health the way I should. Staring out the plane window, I took a deep breath and responded plainly with “yes.” The cabin seemed to … Continue reading Have You Ever Been Depressed?
We aren’t voiceless, pass the mic. I don’t know how other POC bloggers feel, but I’ve always felt that there is a shortage of stories and perspectives from people of colour… our stories are many, interesting and unique.

I can’t … Continue reading The Things I Didn’t Say

Austin called me a creative the other day, I was honored, but I do not believe I can claim that label. The conversation continued: Do you create things? Yeah? Do you create things using your imagination for people to see/read? … Continue reading Am I a Blogger?
This will be more of a ramble post, I apologize in advance. I keep most of my thoughts in my head and the fact that I have been letting them out, little by little, every week kind of freaks me out. This is probably a good thing, but it honestly scares me. I am approaching my second full month blogging and each post I publish … Continue reading To Write Or Not to Write
