Goodbye Relationship Gender Roles
I was talking to someone not too long ago, and I mentioned how my ex loved drama, and how he felt like if there was no drama in the relationship something was wrong even if nothing was. He needed that to fuel his very fiery nature. He was a very passionate person, and if there was no drama, he didn’t feel that passion. They turned to me and said those words that I think are completely ridiculous. They said “That’s not normally a man thing. That’s usually a woman thing.” This is completely inaccurate. In my 38 years on this planet, one thing that I have learned is that men have the same disposition as women when it comes to relationships.
Who Killed Lulu, the Star Part 3
Sitting in a police station was not my idea of fun. I had an audition to get to soon, I hoped this wouldn’t take long. I hated Lulu Devose, yet here I was explaining to this nobody detective exactly what I had seen the night before, which wasn’t much. I was only there at the end, but being the person who found her, I was sure I was a prime suspect, so I called Jennifer Winston, both of our criminal lawyers, pretty much the only thing we had in common, to come down with me to make sure my name was clear.
Who Killed Lulu the Star, Part 2
It was eight oclock in the morning when the detective showed up at my door. I never woke up this early. Not even when I had a shoot to get to. I had made enough of a name for myself, that people generally waited for me. This was different though. I hadn’t slept since the night before, and this detective didn’t look as though he had slept either.
Beware of Thred Up
I had a lot of clothes in my closet that I couldn’t fit anymore, and they have been traveling with me everywhere I went. It was taking up too much room. I move around a lot, and this was too, and there was always too much. So I was trying to find the best way to get rid of the things I no longer needed.
The Harder They Fall
Jonathan Majors is really starting to become the man to watch. After his beautiful ride on Love Craft Country, we find him in The Harder They Fall, a wonderful take on a Western portraying a real person with a fiction narrative. I wasn’t going to watch, but the star power compelled me.
Why Can't I Find What I'm Looking For?
I’ve noticed that in today’s society there are so many men who complain about women who don’t cook or clean. This forced me to think of how society has changed as a whole for years past. I see quite a few reasons for this change in how we are today and how our relatives lived their lives once upon a time. Go with me a little bit on this and see if you agree.
The Black and White Issue
Social media is getting out of control with these black and white relationship celebration memes. I get it. Love who you love, but don’t look down on those of us who prefer to love our own. Representation matters, but some of these memes are ridiculous and give off the wrong impression of what you feel about your own kind. It does not make me racist when I say that I will not let anything but a black man inside of me, just like it doesn’t make you any less racist when you prefer a race other than your own. You can like the person and still not like the race, babes. Frankly, I’m tired of seeing it, so I have some things I need to get off my chest.
How a New Teacher Spends Over $500 Before You Even Teach A Class
I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, but I ran away from it for a very long time because I knew that there was really no money in teaching. You are expected to get a bachelor’s degree for a field where, at least in Arizona, you will not get paid even $40,000 per year. I was coasting for a really long time. I was just doing whatever job tickled my fancy, and believe me there were a lot of different ones. It was starting to get ridiculous.
