‘Tis the season of giving and letting people know how much you appreciate them. When you are giving out your compliments and little love tokens, be sure not to leave out your friends. They the ones holding you down when your family can’t. They are the ones making sure you are emotionally fed and socially charged.
With all this said, this is also a time of re-evaluation of your friends- weeding out the takers from the givers. As you go into the New Year, you want to cleanse your mind, body and soul from the negativity (however that classifies for you). You want a “fresh slate” as you go into a new year full of new opportunities, great memories, money, love and life.
Love on your friends and say “buh bye okurrrrr” to the ones who are trash. You know who they are…
THEY say some of the best days are the ones that aren’t planned. Now I know I told yall not to listen to THEY, but just this one time…
As I said in my previous post, Mr. SadLife himself aka Zach had adventure time with me as we went museum gallivanting, drinking and culturing. We had so much fun and got some good pics out of it too.
Last weekend I FINALLY got to go to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. All thanks to @yardsofhappiness // @professordwj *she’s the reason I write this blog in the first place.
This experience was so great and made me teary-eyed (I didn’t actually cry cuz you know… thugs don’t cry). To see MY HISTORY, OUR HISTORY being displayed in such a meaningful and beautiful way is almost unworthy of words. One of the saddest parts was seeing Emmett TIll’s casket and hearing his story (I didn’t get pictures of this because I am a respectful human being).
See some of the pics from my visit:
We enjoyed our time so much, my friend, Zach, and I decided to go visit a few other museums in D.C. We did this after we drank wine and stopped for a beer of course. To see some of our drunken adventure please proceed to “This Was Not Planned”.
Literally, I know we all think champagne is the equivalent to a posh lifestyle, but I’m here to tell you that, that just can’t be. Champagne gives the largest headache on this planet Earth and whoever the asshole is who decided it would be smart to mix with wine in the form of sangria, well he deserves to be let go! (If it sounds like I’m hurt, trust me I am because I had stuff to do that day).
Other than that though I had a great day Thursday (check out my post “wait till after the tour” to hear about my lovely museum excursions).

As the semester is winding down (we literally have 2 real weeks of school left— something of which I was unaware of), everyone is scrambling to “SAVE THE GRADE” a worthy attempt at best. This quote serves as motivation to remind yourself of what state of your life in and to prompt you to help yourself #GetOut of it.
Hope the rest of your week is lovely, if not grab yourself a glass of wine or a nice hearty shot of Jameson.

I don’t think I have mentioned it yet, but I am a senior student at Howard University aka the Mecca aka the HOME of the BEST Homecomings ever seen by this world! This year marks Howard University’s 150th and my last undergraduate homecoming 😦 . But, before we get sad, let’s talk a walk down memory lane (ehem… two weeks ago) and see some of the madness.

Sorry I don’t have premium WordPress so you can’t see my videos or boomerangs … sad day but I am a #brokecollegestudent so we digress.
