Well, lookie here – it’s already a new year. And in keeping with my resolution of no resolutions, this year I challenge myself, and all of you to “Trust Yourself”.
2016 was a rough year in a lot of ways, for a lot of people – including myself. I am not where I expected to be, and for that I am disappointed. But, I am going to try very hard in the new year to trust myself – my decisions and my opinions. As “they” say, we know ourselves the best. I am going to work on making sure that I believe in what I choose to do. And to be gentle with myself, no matter how things turn out.
I wish joy and love to each of you. And give you permission to trust in yourself. You’ve got this!
Now that the holidays are over, all the short, erratic weeks are behind us. Unfortunately, we have to be all adulty and get back on our regular schedule. This is actually a good thing, save for missing out on my daily midday naps.
Look at me with that whole algebraic 10th power going on!
It’s also when some of you have made your resolutions for the year. I don’t really have any that I make for myself anymore, except for my ongoing goal to “Be Better”, and this year I hope that you all can take up that task, too. I also want to know if you can give me any feedback on one of my Christmas presents, too.
Are you guys ready to get back to your new regular normal, too?
Hi again! This time I’m talking about how we edit our lives for online consumption. We all do, it’s a fact of (online) life. Hell, it’s even a fact of IRL life, too. Because, really – do you know everything about your coworker, and vice versa to you? I also talk about how we need to be nice to people, because, since we don’t know everything about what is going on with them, they deserve our patience. And I finish up with a challenge to you, and myself, to try and reign in our frustration this week, and be nicer to people. Let’s see how that works out.
There are three things people of color can never understand about Caucasian culture:
1. The way you let your children talk to you.
2. Why y’all don’t use washcloths.
3. What you wear to church.
What? What do you mean white people don’t use washcloths? This is sincerely news to me. It must definitely be a cultural or a geographical issue, because we definitely use them around here. And, me, growing up in my white, suburban bubble never even knew it was a thing. Like, it just never occurred to me that not everyone uses washcloths.
So, I made a video about my shock and disbelief, while yelling at you about using those nasty plastic loofahs. Enjoy.
