World Cup 2014

With the start of this year’s World Cup I’ve started to feel better and worse. As a Caribbean and South American Woman; it’s such an exciting time for us. The idea of the World Cup being hosted so close to home, in a continent where almost every country plays the sport (we have 9 national…

Book Five: Fight Club

While I’ve seen the movie, I have never read the book so I could not pass it up when I saw it for $4.98 in the bargain section of Barnes. I’m 20 pages in. The most engaging read since I read The Goddess Chronicle.

Rant: Lupe on Voting

I started this on Twitter but 140 characters got very restricting. I am a huge fan of Lupe Fiasco. I feel like as a nerdy bookworm it helps gives me a sense of belonging somewhere in the rap world. “Hardcore” rap can sometimes be too much for a girl who’s never lived that life beyond…

On Writing

I’ve often wondered why I write or continue to attempt to write a blog; I know that I’ve always felt alone and I’ve always had this impossible feeling that there was someone else who, for what its worth would understand. Not everything but maybe one thing or relate to it in a way that I…

Miss America – Muslim – Big Whoop

So, I didn’t know there was an unspoken agreement that all the miss america’s would be cornflower, women; pure blood american protestant.

Selfish Guys

A selfish guy is normally an apparent jerk. You can spot him immediately and you know that there’s something wrong with him for the most part but you don’t exactly know what….

Wounds of Sound

I used to be afraid, scared to death at the sound of their piercing wail, now, I sleep soundly to their seeking echoes I can not imagine my life without them. Sad that this is commonplace but at least here, I can see it, can see the corruption and it isn’t hidden under top secret…

Internet Election, Bias Election

Since we’ve become so technologically advanced, it seems that a lot of focus us placed on advertising the candidates for our next upcoming election online. It seems that facebook and myspace jabs have replaced actually debates and town hall meetings. I get it, we need to cater to our youth, but we need to inspire…

Sarah Palin’s No Call, No Show

Photo credit: AFP/Getty Images Well the latest in Palin news is that she will not be on the talk show circuit like everyone else. So far she has not done any solo appearances nor is she attempting to put herself out there like McCain has, I think the Republican party surmised that if she is…
