Another how to cure writers block! Drawing!

Advertisements

Hey peeps!

I don’t know if I mentioned before, but another way I come up with content and stay creative is by drawing. Painting, drawing, digital drawing; almost everything!

When I was younger, the first person to influence me was my God-mother. When I was a kid, about 4 or so, she use to hang her paintings in her apartment. I loved that about her though, she was so creative and at an impressionable age, all the colors and details that she put in each painting, really amazed me.

Mundane Friday: A list of my favorite books

Some people don’t like to read, but me? I can’t go nowhere without a book being in my purse. Big or small, these are a list of my favorites. (ebookfriendly.com via giphy)

Hey everyone,

Since it’s getting colder and colder, I love to read during these time. Sitting in bed, not worrying about much, just me, the words on the page, and a hot cup of tea. I haven’t been reading as much as I want to, but I think now that it’s starting to get cold, it’ll lighten up my schedule. Although I love all genres, Continue reading “Mundane Friday: A list of my favorite books”

Mundane Friday: I started my minimal living… sort of.

Living minimal is a dream of mine, but how minimal is too minimal? (mirroryourtv.com.au via giphy)

Hey Friends!

I thought that I’d write this post about my, wanting to live a simpler lifestyle, experience. So far, I have went through some of my stuff and got rid of a lot of it, and I feel great every time I walk through my front door. I love this new life style, even though I still don’t feel like I’m living the life completely and here’s why.

Last night, I had a dream that I was in a white room. The room had a bed, one couch, a TV on a TV stand, a coffee table, and a white rug. I, of course, had a black bag in my hand getting rid of my teddy bear that I had since I was a baby (literally, I was a toddler with a bear bigger than I was at the time). I felt like there

Wormhole: Writing November #NaNoWriMo

It’s November 1st! Let’s start the writing challenge off write! Lol

Hello friends!

I never mentioned this before, but I’m trying to write a novel. I have about 6 chapters but I can’t seem to generate anymore ideas for the book — I feel like this process is way bigger than how to cure writers block.

It’s like my mind jumps around like a toddler asking a thousand questions. Trying to keep coming up with ideas and focus on the outline I just couldn’t do it. So one day while browsing the internet, a website by the name of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWritMon), that seemed like it would help me.

This is not a promotion for the website, I’m not getting paid or anything but maybe some of you, the readers, have the same troubles I am so why not share my findings with you all. While Continue reading “Wormhole: Writing November #NaNoWriMo”

Let’s Talk Tuesday: Let’s talk hair… Locs mainly

Why locs? Why do people think ill of them? Click to continue to read. (blackwomensnaturalhairstyles.com via giphy)

Hey Friends,

How has your month been? Mine has been okay, lately I’ve been thinking a lot about my hair. Us women, we take our hair seriously, and African American woman, take their hair very seriously, spending hours in the salon, making sure our hair is right. I’m just glad that natural hair (not using chemicals to change our hair type or heat to straighten it) is starting to take over, and becoming more of a trend. We have all these types of things we do to our hair but what I don’t understand is why locs have such a bad reputation?

Ever since I was younger, I had family members that had locs, it was always the older family members though. Coming from a Jamaican family every time I saw a person with locs, I thought they were so Continue reading “Let’s Talk Tuesday: Let’s talk hair… Locs mainly”

Mundane Friday: Old commercials

Ever wondered what the commercials looked like during the 70s to 80s? Click to continue reading. duckswithhoves.com via giphy

Hey friends,

The past couple of weeks, I’ve been watching Standford and Sons, and Diff’rent Strokes, because I never really watched them as a kid (because I was born in the 90s). These shows are great for every one to watch, they really make me laugh with all their jokes that tell and the scenarios they go through. While watching this show, though, there are no commercials Continue reading “Mundane Friday: Old commercials”

Mundane Friday: I’m thinking about moving

I’m planning on moving, I’m tired of living in New York. I want to experience somewhere else! Continue to read below! (imppaster via giphy)

Hello friends,

I think I may be done with New York. I’ve learned a lot here, it’s made me a better person, but I think I’m done with New York; here’s why.

Ever since I was younger, about middle school, I told myself that after I leave high school I was going to move to New York. Fast forward to senior year of high school, I applied to a school in New York. When I got accepted I finally made my wish come true of moving to the apple. Not only was I in Manhattan but I was living in Manhattan, frequently I would walk to 42nd street and just look around, then my Continue reading “Mundane Friday: I’m thinking about moving”
