I can’t tell you the last time I have set foot on South Drexel Avenue.  I don’t even remember much of what the house looked like. I vaguely remember a porch, the couches, the kitchen, a certain smell, and some … well, maybe, all of the rooms. My memory of it is muddled by age, the forgiving grace of forgetting, and all the lives I’ve lived before. But desipite all this Despite the many, many homes in which I have lived and loved, 9218 S Drexel Ave,

August goals

Goals.


Everybody says that all the time now. #Goals. #Goals. #Goals. I know we all kind of say it very tongue in cheek most times but lately I've been thinking about them very seriously. I like goals... Scratch that... I love smashing goals... The sense of accomplishment I get from a met goal is remarkable and so motivating for me to get to my next one. And I know that they always say if you write down your goal it's like 9999999999.99% more likely to come to fruition and that sounds like #goals to me.   August 2016 Goals Write goals down on paper. Take pic of said goals. Post to blog. I'm blurring some of them out cause I ain't tryna have y'all all in my business like that but I'm hopeful that I will do some real damage to this list over the next few weeks. ETA: I got one thing crossed off my list even before I posted this blog. #magic Also, I just

Gym. Tan. Laundry!


Or something like that. I have watched and enjoyed Jersey Shore approximately negative zero times. So if you are here looking for some Jersey Shore nostalgia and/or love from me for them. Nope. Click off. And Google "What is my life?" and carry on with your day. LOL. Gym: So if you remember last month... I've been obsessing about going to a gym. Mostly because I want to crush life just as beautifully as this fat black yoga-ing super hero that you should watch HERE: [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtnKCTsj7f4[/embed]   Isn't that AMAZING??? Like I'll be honest... I screamed when they showed that full on shot of her and her belly cause man listen... Me and My belly. We be her. lol.. But you know what? Me and my belly really really really REALLY want to be as flexible, healthy, strong and in love with and unashamed of my body as her... and we aren't. And

Okay so let's see... So the thing that keeps running through my head the most is: The only two emotions are fear and Love. Less fear. More love. Okay, dudes? K. Financial: YNAB ( You need a budget) is all the bae you will ever need. It's really life altering. I have all kinds of goof ass issues around money. But almost all of it is based in Fear with a capital F. YNAB is helping me to view money and bills and all that stuff with Love with a capital L. Its a process but when I do use it and actually do it is definitely more love most times. Admittedly, when I have less than I want and need the fear creeps up. HOWEVER. I always have enough. Mostly, by miracles cause Jesus is the homie but also by ME. Cause I'm out here doing it. And I'm doing a pretty bang up job. So the thing about YNAB is that " Every dollar has a job" So when you get income you assign every dollar a job by

StoryTime with SistaTV


So Let's flip the language: So Tim and his boss are at a conference and Tim's boss Jonathan asks Tim and his wife to come to a dinner meeting with him and his wife to meet with some investors. The meeting goes great. After the investors leave, Tim's boss turns to his wife and Tim's wife and says, "Ladies, Tim and I are going to need to figure out the logistics of this deal tonight. Why don't you girls go hit the hotel spa on me." Tim doesn't want to be rude and is up for a promotion and his wife is all about that free massage life so it's all good... They head up to the boss's suite to view the projections on the Jonathan's laptop. Even though he initially declines, Jonathan makes Tim a celebratory drink and says, "Man don't be a punk. You betta take it to the head! We landed this huge deal!! " or if Tim says, "Man, my sinuses are acting up and Jonathan hands him a pill and says

Single Mothers Father’s Day or Whoa, there buddy! Your misogyny is showing!


I don't want to alarm anyone and I ain't one to gossip so you ain't heard it from me, BUT apparently there is a rag tag band of violently embittered, single mothers running WILD all over the world and social media engaging in an illuminati inspired bid to co-opt Father's Day? Y'all, I'm just as SHOCKED as you. When I found out about this major crisis (for whom, exactly??) me and this obviously worthless bastard baby of a sinister single mother were like... But then I remembered I'm not dumb as hell and I was all like...   Cause chile, I had absolutely no idea. You would think I would have picked up my father's day co-opting protocols when I picked up my single mother registration forms  but just like all the welfare and the bitterness I'm supposed to have endless supply of... I still ain't got none of it. However, based on the staggering amount of social media

The Divinity in Disappointment or an Ode to Warsan Shire & TwentySomething Sistatv


The Divinity in Disappointment or an Ode  to that one time Warsan Shire wrote SistaTV's whole 20 something life... Sometimes, I have these random encounters with men and women who tell me how despite how life has disappointed them in some magnificently hurtful ways they can stand here at peace with their pasts and actually be grateful for it all. I always shout and act surprised when then tell me their stories and what they’ve conquered but the truth is I always know a conqueror immediately. I can always see the light of those of us who have cut the rot out at the root and healed before any words have come out of their mouths. I can see the miracle of forgiveness and the good in goodbye reflecting in all of our eyes. And because I saw it in deep within my own eyes for so long, I can just easily recognize those people that I meet that have a still broken but kindred spirit. I
