5 Things I have learned during quarintine

At the point you are reading this, I have been 'social distancing' for about 70+ days (you guys are just joining me)...

So I am gonna take a quick break to tell you about the 5 things I have learned while being in the house....

1. You can literally learn ANYTHING on YouTube. 
I have learned to make hot glue wigs, waist beads, and candle making thus fair ....
I may take up nails if these salons don't open up soon...
Outside of my hair (which is essential since of my vitamin deficiencies and my stylist is dope as hell ), I have learned that a lot of things I pay for are for experience and are luxury....Not to discredit industry professionals because they are professionals but I do feel better knowing I can maintain things or learn new skills.

2. Delivery services are LIFE....
I honestly save money buy utilizing delivery services, because I am the person at Target picking up shit I didn't go in there for......
God bless the Amazon, Instacart ,UPS,Shipt,etc  workers who keep us out of stores....

3. People don't check their mail (me included)
So I have sent several Cheryl &Co cookie cards to let some people know I was randomly thinking about them, and I had to tell them to go check which kinda ruined the surprise, but I'd rather do that than have some 5 month old cookie in your mail box lol

4. You save ALOT of money sitting at home.
I have been completely BLESSED to have transitioned from medical leave to work from home so I have been able to move a little differently .

5. Use the buddy system when subscribing to streaming .
So I am a total believer of being communal when having Netflix, Disney +, Hulu,etc. These companies don't need everyones $12, so I trade log ins with my friends and try not to watch their shows.

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,

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my sy

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date. The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days.... Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree? So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education. via GIPHY I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit.......... I was scared. Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying. While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain... I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like
