In this day and age it’s risky business to go against the grain, having opinions that others don’t agree with will leave you often time with no reward. It’s funny that most of the people that are loved on socials all do/say the same type of things… coincidence. The theme of life seems to be fall in line with what the majority love or fall … Continue reading Do I Have To?
It happens to be Black History Month, now it can be debated how much we need this month and even how significant it is. I’m going to use almost the same argument I’d make for Valentine’s Day (because tbh how significant is V Day really) Black History Month is 1 month of 12 that gives people the collective spirit to embrace being black the same … Continue reading Black Recent Month
All of us have grown up watching things like Fairly Odd Parents, Aladdin and Cinderella. Shows/films that involved people having magical people that are able to grant them wishes in order to make life better. I definitely wish this was my life because I can’t lie I have so many things in my life that I regret and would love to change. There’s a particular … Continue reading If I had One Wish… I’d Do Some Things Differently
For those that care, I know I’ve been gone a long time but if I’m honest I had no topics that I could write about (I wanted to write about a few things but you we live in a world where you must be politically correct). For you today I have a reflective topic “growing up & parenthood”. As much as I’m not a parent … Continue reading The Parent Trap
I want to start this blog by saying this is going to be the most special blog I’ve written so far. This piece is also an open letter to my sister Syria who sadly died on 30th October 2004, she was only 6 and I was only 7. Today is/would’ve been her 21st birthday! She isn’t able to celebrate it and feel like a princess … Continue reading Happy Birthday Sis!
After 3 years I’ve finally finished uni… This is rather bittersweet because as much as lectures are boring and revising is far from ‘lit’ I can’t deny that I enjoy learning and being at university was fun. It’s the type of experience that really builds you as a person. Now that my three years have come to an end life has to get real and … Continue reading Final Year Blues
Let’s just all pretend that I’ve been posting blogs and that uni hasn’t stopped my progress 🙂 Now I’m EXTREMELY opinionated, some would call it caring to much but f that cos turning a blind eye to what everyone is doing is why we’re living in this world of sin. That line ironically leads me to something I hate girls that tweet about wanting a Jay-Z … Continue reading That’s Just The Way It Is
Shout out to J Cole for the title of this blog, if you don’t know then check out Middle Child. I can’t lie this is the first time that I’m going to be speaking on the murder of Nipsey Hussle since it’s happened and it’s for a particular reason. To be real I wasn’t someone that listened to his music at all, I knew who … Continue reading The Real Ones Is Dying, The Fake Ones Are Lit
Drake once said once said ‘from the concrete who knew that a flower would grow’. Meaning that at times you get unlikely positives from bad environments but The Slumflower certainly doesn’t fit this description. It seems she came from a bad situation and turned into a stinging nettle. I’ve been aware of The Slumflower for a few years now, she has honestly done some amazing … Continue reading Good Girl Gone Bad
Damn it feels so weird to be typing again, I’ve missed blogging so much but you know how university gets. I had to work on my dissertation but FINALLY I’ve finished so I can come back and rightfully take back the game! You know you missed me Mike and Robert Well, well, well what do we have here. If you know the saying ‘young tings … Continue reading Just Beat It, You’re Not a Smooth Criminal
