The Missing Pages
The judge stared at me with a twinkle of amusement in her eyes. "Well," she said, "your testimony is certainly the most creative thing I've heard in this courtroom, but I guess I have no choice. Twelve months in the state penitentiary."
A Break Down of My Personality That No One Asked For
I'll admit it, I kind of have an obsession with personality tests. I happen to know that I am a Type 3, INTP Slytherin. And what have I done with this information? Besides using it to come up with cool aesthetics, not a damn thing. But do I still click on every single Buzzfeed personality quiz that I see? Hell yeah.
The Never-Ending Story of the Women of Motown
As a child, one of the first CDs I ever owned was a Motown's Greatest Hits CD that I got for my eleventh birthday. Being that I turned eleven in 2009, decades after Motown's golden era under founder Berry Gordy, Jr. had already ended, my music taste led people to believe that I was an old soul. But the truth is that Motown's music is timeless and has remained in people's hearts and minds since its inception in the late 50s.
My Family's History is Black History
Black History Month is almost over and since the first day of February, I have been trying to find the right words to tell this story. But for the past twenty-two days, it has mostly resulted in me typing a few paragraphs and then abandoning the story in my drafts. Currently, I'm sitting with four different versions of this story uncompleted. Hopefully, this won't be the fifth.
My Real Life Peach Creek Estates
When you're a kid and you can't drive and nearly every important place in your life is within a three mile radius of one another, your perspective of the world is very small. That's how the shows I watched as a kid were able to convince me that big elaborate adventures were happening in unreasonably small spaces, like the backyard in The Backyardigans or the sandbox in the Rugrats or my personal favorite, Peach Creek Estates in Ed, Edd, n Eddy.
I Can't Understand These Songs, But They Understand Me
This might cost me my Hot Girl status but... I'm a hopeless romantic... and I'm also kind of a geek (okay, a big geek). That means that I love Rom-Coms and love songs and overall, I'm just in love with love. So that means that I should love Valentine's Day, right?

10 Disney Channel Songs To Kickstart Your Galentine's Day
Disney Channel and Galentine's Day may not seem like they go together and maybe they shouldn't, but like peanut butter and celery, somehow they do.
20 Black Love Songs For the Perfect Valentine's Day
February doesn't get enough credit for being one of the best months of the year. From it being Black History Month to Valentine's Day on the 14th to the freaking Super Bowl, there is a lot to celebrate in this short month (at least, if you live in the U.S.). And what is any celebration without music? Boring, that's what.
