Cruise

"Baby you're a song, you make me wanna roll my windows down and cruissseeeee."

Every time I think of the word "cruise" I think of this song. They say that a cruise is one of the cheapest vacation options "one" could have. They don't mention that a cruise isn't meant for "one" person. If you want to book a cruise, you have to book for two people. Sucks right? So you could end up paying on average $212.80 per day, per passenger. So for a five-day cruise, it could be up to $2,128.00. For that price I better see Jesus walk on water.


Why can't they offer cabins for just one person? There are people out there who would love to go on vacations on their own, to reflect or just because they might be single or have no one to go on a trip with.

Society has a tendency to behave like you SHOULD be in a relationship. People have too much interest in other peoples lives. They have too much time to gossip, and they are obsessed with "Society Norms."

Society is organized around the family unit since when you are not in a relationship you tend to stand out from others. They justify it by stating you need to make sure you have a replacement for the next generation.

Very rare do you hear people putting the importance on why it is good to stay single, for a certain amount of time. Or why it could be good to learn to treat yourself and find out what YOU like. Taking trips on your own, gaining independence and getting habits out your system that won't work when you are paired with someone else.

Psychologists claim that Single people are more fulfilled. Single people are more connected to family and friends, whereas relationships or marriage tend to make two people, insular.

My point is, don't let people or society make you think that you need a relationship, RIGHT NOW. Take care of you first, learn how to love yourself. A lot of people feel like they need to continually be with someone else and that isn't normal.

Once you learn how to love YOU, you will know how to love others and never settle for anything less because you'll know your worth.

I've always wanted to go on a cruise, but I've seen so many Final Destination movies, and read up on trips that went bad, and it has made me paranoid. I also can't swim, and I'm like 6 foot one. Have you seen an anchor float?? It would be The Titanic Part two: Urban Legend with me out there. Like Mrs.Doubtfire said, "They outlawed Whaling."

All jokes aside, I think everyone deserves a vacation. Whether it is a stay-cation or an actual trip away from everything. I would highly recommend going to Colorado, I heard the experience there is Unbeweedable.

The 7 Reasons Why Black People Always Die First In Scary Movies


I believe that we have all watched our fair share of scary movies.

We’ve all seen the opening of a movie, with a woman in the shower. She hears a noise and says, “hello?” And the audience sighs because she gave her location away to the killer. Now imagine a black woman in the shower. She will have her shower cap on and will hear ALL. If she understands anything, it won’t be a hello. It’ll be a goodbye, she will either fight or flight.


Imagine your top ten picks and then try to recall the black character in each those films. Did they die off first? Were they killed towards the beginning or middle of the movie? Yeah, let me clue you in as to why.




We do not play by any of the rules: 
You know those typical ghost stories? Where there is running water, or the doors are slammed or closed behind you while you're brushing your teeth? Yeah, WE don't play that. We would confront it.

Parental Controls

I have a 64-year-old mother who isn't tech savvy. Surprise Surprise.

 I really wish that they could simplify technology for the older folks out there. The remote control is way too advanced for them. 79 different buttons for them to try and read and then they call you multiple times while you're at work trying to figure out how to "turn the damn tv on."

So I pitched an Idea to a cable company on how they should simplify the guide for our older generation so they could no longer be weary and have some type of independence when it was time for them to find "Family Feud."


Whenever my mother learns technology, she gets super excited. My dad used to be the same way. Once you taught them something over a hundred times, they would finally remember how to do it. And as long as you wrote it down, highlighted it and circled it six times they could never really forget how to do the steps on their own. Then you would save it in your notes, where you put that notebook b…

Dicks Sporting Goods

Cycling is a great way to get into shape. Whether it is indoor or outdoor, it is a fantastic way to know right off the bat, that your fat ass shouldn't have had Olive Garden's unlimited Pasta bowl the day before.

A friend of mine suggested that we cycle together a few days out of the week. I was all for it because I needed a gym partner that could hold me accountable and make sure I was showing up to the classes. I was super excited and decided to go to Dicks Sporting Goods to shop around and get some of the clothing I would need for the class. They recommend moisture-wicking clothing or cycling clothes.

I made my way to the cycling section and noticed that they had cycling shoes for sale along with their bike shorts. I quickly found my size, and something told me to just go ahead and try them on before I made that purchase. Bike shorts are an excellent choice for cycling because they have a cushion in the crotch area made to sit on top of the bike. Unfortunately, when I put t…
