Is it wrong that the thought of writing this post alone overwhelms me? The issues of race in this country and around the world are so great and complex and personal that I know not where to start. It’s bad. Even Dave Chappelle can’t find a joke. Should I share a personal story or two? Which stories? Should I focus on a specific issue? Which … Continue reading This post is exhausting just thinking about it.

Sometimes in our zeal to explore new worlds, we forget the cool stuff in our own backyard. As for Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida, I’ve been hearing about this popular landmark all my life, yet I’ve passed it countless times. This visit was long overdue.

The other day I was all excited to sit down and start recording a video about one of my favorite works of art– Ugolino and His Sons by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux. I’ve loved it for years and I can speak about it at length; there should’ve been no issues, right? Haha, yeah, okay. Here’s what happened.

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my random thoughts with you all, so let’s get this trainwreck started, shall we? Okay, full disclosure, there is no trainwreck. I just like the sense of drama that it promises, sort of like those clickbait videos on YouTube which make it seem like your favorite GRWM gal has just broken up with her adorable boyfriend, the one … Continue reading Random Thoughts

I know, I’m shameless, right? This sketch is all about the ugly underbelly of the #writerlife. What … Continue reading Sunday Bonus: The Broken Writers Society, a Comedy

Well, things got worse after I hit publish on that post. Here’s the lowdown.

That’s right, I’m doing some behind the scenes work on iwannabealady, and it’s all techy and making me feel equally like a genius and a dummy. But I’m putting on my hard hat and going for it. I should’ve known better than to think this would be a cinch. Seriously, I never learn. If I did, I would’ve made a bigger pot of coffee. If … Continue reading Under Construction
