Straight out of Chicago

Earlier this summer a Chicago artist (A homie of mine)named,Kweli sent me some of THEE DOPEST bracelets ever.... When he told me he was going to send me one,I never expected these! I instantly fell in love ...

Kweli is the owner of a Chicago based company called, ShiKahGoh Designs. He specializes in handmade paracord and beaded bracelets. I think my favorite part of my bracelets were the unique beads which turn heads every time I wear them,to the the point of people wanting to buy them off me!

When I asked Kweli to give me a few words about his business he said ,'SHIKAHGOH312 is a Jewelry/Accessories brand based from Chicago, IL.We strive to Swag out your wrist game'

I have to say this one is my favorite,I'm sure you can guess why.....

So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,

I kinda did a thing......Nothing major...

Chapter 7....

 Wow.... Thanks for tuning back in, I know I kinda left you hanging after Chapter 6, and it totally wasn't intentional....  But processing the last few months of personal health battles, international pandemics, lack of therapy and some other things, reliving certain parts of 2020 are a struggle. However, we are back! ....My surgeon laughed, 'wow, Silvia?' 'Yea, Silvia... Thats her name', I went on to explain how after my weight loss surgery I named my stomach Shelia. In the process of these procedures, naming things has given me a sense of ownership and control over things I truly don't have any over. My coworkers and manager all address Shelia by name too  I signed what seemed like my life away on a stack of papers and tried to ask all the last minute questions I could? But honestly what could I ask.... Silvia and the excess skin were going....period. She gave me a list of instructions for pre and post instructions, the hospital wash (its soo gross),day of ins
