ONE TWEET. THIS FIT IN ONE TWEET. IF YOU FUCK IT UP YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE.

So much of this. An apology is NOT “I’m sorry BUT here’s why I’m totally in the right and think I did nothing wrong.”

Important.

Ugh, my favourite TV couple of all time. Their story has inspired all of my writing, all of my dreams about love.

Everyday is so tough.

Today I wanted to give up. 

This week is about self-care. I’m going to eat what I want, read what makes me happy, write something that makes me feel good, sleep when I feel I need to and avoid people and situations that bring me down. 

The struggle is so real.

This Summer…

I was diagnosed. 

I thought about my grandmother a lot. This October it will be 13 years since she passed away. I got a tattoo of her name on my wrist. It hurt but it is beautiful. 

I bought Beyonce and Jay Z tickets on Kijiji. It was the first time I’ve ever bought something from the website. I met the seller at Union Station. He was wearing a suit, he looked me in the eyes and promised the tickets were real. It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. 

My love for Beyonce grew so much. 

I wrote the best book I’ve ever written. 

My mom and sister both went on trips, leaving me alone for a week. 

I got migraines every weekend. 

I consumed so much news about Ferguson it started affecting my mental health. Being Black means not being seen as human. 

I challenged my half sister on Twitter over her thoughts on Ferguson. 

I got box braids. 

I read a lot of good books on my Kindle. 

A three week job turned in to a four month position. I worked all summer. I am so thankful for that. 

I was able to forgive but not forget. 

I became obsessed with Roxane Gay. 

I took a mindfulness class. 

I got out of bed everyday.

It wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be.
