Scribblenauts Unmasked

Since Aden got me a 3ds last year to play Pokèmon X, I’ve only played one other game on the hand held, the Adventure Time game.  I realize that I’m far from adjusted to old school platformers so didn’t want to invest in a game that would make me mad…so here we are. It’s got…

Does that make me crazy by Bassey Ikpi

I first heard Bassey Ikpi’s voice during one of the Def Jam Poetry shows…it was clear as a bell and I felt an instant connection to her. At the time, she was known as a writer / poet but not much more. Since then, she’s become an advocate for mental health and started to speak…

Fauxtographer

        I forget that I own a good camera. The thing about it is, I don’t really know that much about it. I use mostly automatic settings. I am under no illusion that I’m a photographer. Good Camera = / = Photographer.       I originally wanted to take some photographs…

Cheers to wellness!

I’m finally feeling back to myself. I had a round of antibiotics and lots and lots of lozenges to get my through my throat infection. I’m no worse off for it; except I noticed my voice is more husky than before. I’ve made peace with having a more masculine voice so I won’t belabor the…
