Returning to the Office

As many us are returning to the office, some of us are a bit leery because of the pandemic. Vaccinated or not, things have changed. Most of us experienced a challenge we had to adapt to working/schooling/living from our homes. Our once haven became a prison for the masses. The idea of escape was on all of our minds, and…

Black Entitled Woman (BEW)

When we speak about entitlement: the belief that one is inherently more deserving of privileges or special treatment, it is not in the most positive manner. People hurl the term “entitled” as an insult, usually.  S/he works for nothing. Everything just falls in her/his lap Who does s/he think they are? Walking in as if they own the place? This…

BFF Best Friend Forever

I don’t have a BFF (best friend forever). Sure, I have good friends, confidants, acquaintances, and three sisters even, and I know who my go to person is based on what I’m going through.

Finding Your Wright Path

I sincerely believe that we are all on a path, but how do you find yours?

My Name Matters

My Name Matters

I recently started working at a local restaurant as a barista/bartender and the idea of it excited me to no end!!! In my second fictional book, one of the main characters is a bartender and PI, private investigator. While only on the receiving end of a bar, I hadn’t had the experience of hosting a bar, so when this opportunity…

Surrender

Surrender

Determined to lose the weight I gained after taking meds to address the DVT and PE I suffered, I took to the gym.
