    What I Am Thankful About (For Each Number)

    What I Am Thankful About (For Each Number)

    On November 26th this year, you'll likely be seated around a table (with whichever number of people is appropriate ATM) feasting on comfort foods with your family. Family members who, I need not remind you, have various personality types. It can be catastrophic at times and it can be beautiful. As you pass around the stuffing, remember: every enneagram number has their unique strengths. I am choosing to be appreciative of the differences. In honor of Thanksgiving, here is why I am thankful for each personality!

    The Boy with the Teacup Tattoo

    The Boy with the Teacup Tattoo

    I have seven tattoos, but the one people seem most eager to see is the teacup on my ankle. They seem to appreciate the lengths to which I have gone to declare my love of tea. I do love tea; in fact it is one of my favourite things. However, this is not why I have adorned myself with its famed receptacle. And, no, it isn't because Ed Sheeran or Louis Tomlinson has one either. But, as it's quite a long story, I often just don't correct people when they assume as much. However, it's nice to have an opportunity such as this to explain the full tale.

    I Don't Have Any Friends, But...

    I Don't Have Any Friends, But...

    Yes, being alone does not mean I'm lonely at all. But there are people who have asked me over the internet: "how do you survive without having any real-life friends?"

    Being a Xennial in 2020

    Being a Xennial in 2020

    What Is a Xennial? Pronounced: “zen-knee-el.” A quick search of Wikipedia will give you the definition of a Xennial as any person who was born from the late 1970’s to as late as 1985. We are the micro-generation caught between Generation X and the Millennial generation. This is because we were born at the very end of one and the very start of the next. We grew up a lot like most of Generation X, but then awoke to a world of drastic change; just as we entered into adulthood.

    Triple Threat: Being an LGBT+ Black Female (+ in a STEM Discipline)

    Triple Threat: Being an LGBT+ Black Female (+ in a STEM Discipline)

    In theatre, being a thriple threat means being able to sing, dance, and act. Although I did do theatre for a year in high school and have years of history earning gold stars on Just Dance, the only part of that criteria I meet is being able to act, and that's being generous to myself. For me, being a triple threat has nothing to do with my talents and more to do with my identity: Black, Lesbian, and Female.
