Moving Towards The Pain

Loss, Bereavement, Quietus. Whatever you call it, it ain’t easy (btw I definitely googled that word). For some it is difficult for many different reasons, either no longer having that important someone who meant a lot to you around, or being witness to someone you love losing their important person. It can stop a life…

Str8 People Just Don’t Get It

Oh Boy!! Here it goes. I’m not sure why is has taken me quite so long to come to this conclusion. All the signs have been there, they have been for a while, but it took one conversation in particular for it to click. As I was having a conversation argument about gender equality I…

Cause White, Cause Male

CW: Sexual Assault So when I scrolled thru my bbc news app as I do daily (a brief reprieve from my infantile ignoring of current affairs/politics, the equivalent of sticking my fingers in my ears and screaming ‘la la la’) I stumbled upon this headline. “How did Brad Pitt fix his image problem with one…

Not Everyday Recluse

As we know, I am more than happy staying at the yard. Just chilling, watching TV (currently taking a liking to RuPaul’s Drag Race), reading (current: Dreams From My Father), cooking/eating, and smoking does me just fine. However, I can forget that I am 23 goddamn years old, and not over the hill as yet…

Black Struggle Through a White Lens

So this week has been a bit of a mad one as I’ve been attending the festival pretty much every day, just to warn you this post may be kinda bookey. What I have to say does actually pertain to the documentaries that I’ve seen, two in particular. The first, King: A Filmed Record… Montgomery to…

Documentaries

I genuinely believe that if people watched more documentaries the world would be a better place. Along with reading, watching documentaries has been something I’ve done a lot more of this year, and I’m better person because of it. I’m always looking to learn new information, uncover new stories, just acquisition more knowledge, and like…

Falling In Love

I’ve fallen in love y’all. It’s blissful, it’s beautiful, it’s all that I could have ever of hoped for, dreamed for. The happiness within me is spilling over, the day has finally come. I’ve fallen in love with Copenhagen (If you thought it was talking about an actual human you obviously don’t know me very…

Pick Up and Go Friendships

Shout out to the friends and the friendships that don’t need daily or even frequent nurturing. There are some friends that I speak 4 of 5 days out of the week (i’m not an everyday kinda person). Little tidbits here and there, links to videos or articles, semi-regular facetime (for me that’s fortnightly at best)…

Get You Some Self-Care

Ask me about my hair and I will probz lie. I could go forth with a extensive and elaborate dissection of why your questions regarding my change in hair length and style are both malignant and micro-aggressive but tbh, ain’t nobody got time for that (maybe in a future post tho). So, let me hit […]

Ask me About my Hair and I Will Probably Lie!

Ask me about my hair and I will probz lie. I could go forth with a extensive and elaborate dissection of why your questions regarding my change in hair length and style are both malignant and micro-aggressive but tbh, ain’t nobody got time for that (maybe in a future post tho). So, let me hit…

Why is Your Good Time Dependant on Me?

Why the fuck does your good time depend on me. So we’re at a party and there’s some trash music playing which you’ve decided is good so you’re going to dance to it. However I have good taste and I know it’s awful and my body refuses to move to said rhythm. So you’re going…

When the Timeline be poppin’

So it was the Oscars on Sunday or whatever (was very much my sentiment before the ceremony and is slightly less so after it) but pretty much, I’m not that fussed. I was ofcourse overjoyed or some of the results, Auntie Viola Davis, Man Crush Everyday Mahershala Ali (also would’ve of been happy with Dev…
