Time does not stop for anyone

As I am getting older and becoming more and more busy with school, work and many other commitments I have noticed a new phenomenon occurring in my life; time is passing me by at an accelerating rate. Of course, I know that time has not literally began to accelerate at a faster rate, but it sure seems like it. When I was in high school, I was so anxious to graduate and begin college. I felt that once in college, I would feel free and inspired. I was right, college was liberating and inspiring,…See More

Appreciating classic Films

I will never forget one teacher in specific, in high school, who taught me the value and beauty of classic films. Prior to that, I had never really cared too much for classic films until during my senior year when I took class that was dedicated to educating us on classic films and music. Our teacher was very fond of classic films so he showed us some of the best classic films including, Citizen Kane, Casablanca, Vertigo, Rear Window and many more. After that I was in love with classic films! I…See More

Truly being comfortable in your own skin

It wasn't until recently, that it was brought to my attention that I am not as light skinned as I thought I was. In fact it was a life changing moment in which I became aware of how internally colonized I truly was. I felt awful for denying my own skin, in my mind, and at first felt embarrassed until I realized that  although it is partially my fault, I must also acknowledge that this is a product of what society has put upon me. I began to ponder on the scenario I found myself in and realized…See More

The pros and cons of a tight-knit family

Growing up, I have always had a very close and tight-knit family, especially from my moms side. I personally have loved the fact that my family is close, and in many ways it has contributed to the person I am now. One of the biggest benefits of  having a tight-knit family is the fact that any hardship you face in life you know you're not going to face it alone. However, as I have grown older, I have noticed that one of the cons of a close family is that when it comes time to leave the nest and…See More
