Hair my roar!

My hair has been a source of struggle and confusion for as long as I can remember hearing about it. In a mixed family, difficult hair was not that far fetched but there are only so many negatively descriptive adjectives that you could hear about your hair without internalizing the inadequacy of what you never…

Take Off Your Cool

I dislike change. Even when it’s for the better. I’ve been going through a lot of growing pains and while I’m excited for what the future holds, I would be lying if I didn’t admit I was shit scared of the unknown. The biggest thing for me is: What do I love enough to sacrifice…

Batman and Superman – Apocalypse

So, you guys know I’m a nerd and I love me some Batman so of course I didn’t pass up the chance to take a look at this new release, after watching Under the Red hood, my expectations were high but they quickly dwindled. I had forgotten how corny Superman really is. Plot in a…

What Haiti needs to learn that Chile never forgot…

I was very happy to see that Chile could take care of itself, from deploying its own search and rescue teams and military personnel to help its trapped/injured people after the earthquake, for once I saw something different from the struggling third world country with its hand out and coming from a “third world country” it made me warm inside. I also appreciated that President MicheleBachalet was a constant face of reassurance to her people, it wasn’t used as an opportunity; the people were truly the concern. What a breath of fresh air. I’m not saying that aid was not warranted, but their first thought was not to look for it, their first thought was to do it themselves.

Getting Late…

The siren’s voice in my ear beats as slowly as my heart, firm determination in her words matches nothing inside of me. My chest rises and falls with almost no purpose. She sings to me ” It’s late and I’m feeling so tired”. Its as if she’s here with me, travailing this unpaved road leading…

Just for Today

Today was the day you broke my heart fingers on temples chest pounding stomach burning and you took your time and stood apart You prepared your nonchalance I was caught off guard frozen in the New York beastly spring rain drops encouraging me to do the same I wish you would hold me now just…

Meandering the way

The difference between good and evil is what? The way you believe in your cause, the person on the opposing side believes in theirs, with equal if not more passion than you’ll ever have.  I think its great that people rationalize differently and that unique occurances are few and far inbetween. We forget that everyone…

Winter of …

I love New York winters…when they are on time. I was looking forward to breaking out the blazers and cute jackets soon but the weather vetoed my plans. How’s winter treating you?

Letters to Love – What just happened?

We’ve been infatuated with each other forever, the hope of a sweet kiss and a gentle touch has stroked our egos and lit our fires for years, but where are we now? I shudder to think that our relationship could have gone so cold, no more talking, no more showing, no more hoping. Where did…
