The New America

“…this is your life now…” How terrifying.¬† Yesterday, I had prepared somewhat of a witty post to make light of the election.

When Trump first announced his candidacy, like many others, I did not … Continue reading The New America

All Lives Never Mattered

I think I’m going to come up with a new saying for 2016. I think that new saying is going to be ”¬†All Lives¬†Never Mattered.” I’m going with this phrase because whenever the term Black Lives Matter comes into conversation, there is always the rebuttal that All Lives Matter. Well I thought “all” was an inclusive word. Since ALL means everything, the total lot, nothing … Continue reading All Lives Never Mattered

Bad Vibes & Toxic People

Vibes speak louder than words.¬†That is a fact, my friend. I can’t stand being around negative people. We all have our bad days, but some people emit negative energy like they eat negativity for breakfast. Everything is a problem for them.

Lemonade, Lies & Cheating

Ashes to ashes,  dust to side chicks”     -Beyonce It usually all starts with a lurk.

It is … Continue reading Does Social Media Ruin Relationships?
