born and raised in the midwest (outside chicago), undergrad in iowa, currently living in atl (shawty!) on my way to nyc. oh wait, i'm here now. in brooklyn.

i'm an asshole, but i'm funny. if u don't laugh, oh well guess i'm just an asshole.i love fashion, music, culinary arts...really everything creative. my main passion is fashion styling. i like old furniture, or new furniture that looks old. i appreciate technology and its advancements, but i will use my tube tvs until they explode or someone gives me a flat screen. oh and cell phones are for talking and texting. i have a laptop. i may get an ipod in the next 5 years only because i have too many cds.

needless to say i'm surprised i'm on twitta. and now tumbla.

 

she says she cries over me on the train to and from work and one day it will be better but it isn’t better now. she is just like my mother, but alive. knows how to love
quietly, completely.
something about the way black women hold your heart. you can leave them all you like but you cant stay gone.

Do you know what ” woman of color” means? It is ALL woman of color. African-american, Latino, mixed, Indian, we must all support each other…in america they look at us all the same. We are all stereotyped and discriminated against. We must empower our own communities and our children to understand that it will be up to us to secure our futures…fist raised..#mpr1m

someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. they can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. and whatever their reasons you must leave. because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. you never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. there is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. and there is the love that will be ready.

i see ish like this all the time in NY. an old lady on the subway with a beanie with a marijuana leaf, an old man at the stop light with a marijuana leaf air freshener hanging in the window…either they don’t know, or they’re very aware.

I stand fundamentally on the profoundly Christian notion that we are each made equal in the eyes of GOD. A single mother on welfare has the same status as a corporate CEO and they both have the same right to human flourishing regardless of race, religion, nation, gender or sexual preference. It is a deep, spiritually based notion of equality.
