I told you that you were sent here to make the world a little bit more beautiful,
I left out the part where you loved, and made the most inappropriate jokes...
Its hard being in a world that still goes on with one less amazing ,funny person in it.
Over the past few weeks people have tried to comfort me telling me that you are in a better place, but honestly....Whats better than here with all of us? 
I guess I may be selfish in that aspect and I'm totally okay with that... 
But its hard to be here without my friend, my movie buddy, my dinner date, and of course my drinking partner.... 
Remember that time we met that vampire in that seedy ass gay bar,  the time you came to my graduation because my dad was sick in the hospital or that time I helped fray silk organza for your senior collection? 
You have blessed me with the example of true friendship and love... 
I won't ever be the same.

Ill love you forever 
-Ash

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... 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,
