It Started With A Stickup
I took a deep breath holding it in for a few seconds before releasing it slowly. My hands were starting to shake, and my heart was pounding so hard I could practically hear it in my ears. I started to think back on my morning and what could have possibly led me to my current situation. I had my usual morning bowl of Frosted Flakes and drunk the last bit of coffee left.
Loved A Fault In Our Stars?
Everyone goes through that time where they want to sit in front of a screen and watch a fully developed, emotionally charged, loving....tear jerker. You know, the movie where its so sickly sweet and romantic yet so real and relatable but always ends with you crying your heart out in your couch pillow.
Egyptian Mummies: A 17th Century Delicacy
We all had to sit through the Egyptian history and explanations of why and how mummies were mummified.

So imagine my surprise when I learned that years later people were breaking into tombs to eat these mummies and/or use their body parts for medicinal reasoning.
Roger sat in the old bar chair nursing a drink in one hand and smoking a cigarette in the other. He stared off into nothing as he went over more excuses, he could give his wife as to why he lost another job. “Ro” she’d say in exasperation. “This is the third job this month.

The Introverted Leo
Born in the first week of August I am right smack dab in the middle of the Leo time frame. For those of you unfamiliar with the sign, Leo's are known to be prideful, strong willed, and arrogant leaders. They love to stand out and be the center of attention. As a fire sign they are literally a force to be reckoned with. They walk into any situation knowing that they are the most qualified in the room.
2 Favorite Black Queens In The Music Industry
For decades black women have been contributing to the musical industry unashamed. They’ve changed, invented, and mixed sounds to create chart topping and game changing music. Since the times of slavery, they’ve used music to express themselves and their emotions in a way that others can relate.
“So, what are you going to do girl?” Rachel asked her best friend Sandra as they walked into the corner store. “Man, I have no idea. I really just want to be at home you know?”
