Reflections on my work, where I’ve been, and how I feel about not have a niche to my content.

We’re about a week away from May. Time is flying by. And it made me realize: It’s been seven months since I’ve been a content creator on this platform.

I still have no niche in my content.

I’ve had some success in a few posts. The most success I’ve gotten has been on “ I Learned The Co Star App Trolls Their Users Two Days…


They even admitted it

After weeks of convincing, I decided to download the Co-star app. Co-star dawned on me when I was reading my horoscope on Twitter. “Why not?” I thought. I remember my bestfriend and my sister asking me to join this app with them. This was so long ago, that they forgot they even asked me to download the app.

For those of you who are unaware, Co-star is an astrology app. Once you open the app, it prompts you to fill the database with your birthday, birth time, and birth location to conjure your birth chart. You’ll get your sun sign…

In honor of Black History Month, I will be highlighting black stories — past and present on my platform. I plan to retell the stories of those forgotten in the blooded ink of history. I am going to bring light to haunted tales that have been concealed by truth and integrity of the black voice. I want to share stories of successful black people today. It it the very least I can do.

Black History Unchained


A proper introduction

I’m usually the person in the room that dreads an introduction, wishing I was coincidently forgotten in the crowd. I would always think to myself, where do I start? What will I say about my life that will be as interesting as my short stories? I also worry too much. I am immensely grateful that I have been asked to share my story.

A reflection of my week

We often forget

That accessibility to

To a humans space is a luxury.

A persons love

And their time,

Forgiveness.

A heart is a door

That grows weary from

Visitors that wander through

And back again.

You are not entitled

to a second chance

with anyone, you’ve wronged before.

Make peace

with the bridges

you’ve burned with people.

Let the lessons you’ve learned

Be fertilizer

That helps you grow

to be a better you.

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening wherever you are!

Goodmorning, afternoon, evening whenever this article reaches you. For this article,I’m going to be that typical annoying content creator that tells you how much I made on an article and risk myself getting lost in the algorithm.

On April 8, 2020, my life changed forever. The day my nephew came into the world. The baby in the family had a baby and it’s the funniest thing in the world. And his child is nothing short of interesting.

One of my biggest pet peeves when going out to eat is going out with someone that refuses to tip. Especially knowing now that said waiters are making only two dollars an hour relying on said tips. It’s mind-boggling that this is even a debate in today’s world whether or not you should tip.

There shouldn’t be a full-fledged two-sided war about whether or not you should leave at least a couple of ones on your table after you’re served for however long…


Best decision I’ve made for my mental health

***This is not a personal jab at night owls( people who are more productive at night) because I still find some spark of creativity and inspiration at night. This is me just sharing my experience and what I realize works for my lifestyle.

I had never been a morning person. Not even the habit of setting alarms as early as five in the morning to be at school by 7:30 broke the habit of falling asleep late.

Waking up early was the bane of my existence. I was always that person that…
