Hi! It’s been a while!

Hey Tomodachi’s!

How are you all? First of all, how have you all been since I disappeared? I do hope well. Because life is too short to be living miserably.

Unapologetically Black

Hey, Hey, Hey Tomodachi’s!

It feels like it has almost been forever since the last time I wrote anything on my blog. I hope you can forgive me for pulling another one of my disappearing acts on you all. I have missed blogging after not blogging for the past three months.

If you follow my Instagram and other social media pages I recently posted on my Instagram page explaining the reasons for my disappear and how I would be back, out and about on my social media pages and blog. And here I am! With a new poem! Continue reading

How often does a writer need to write to be considered a ‘serious writer’?

Hello Tomodachi’s,

It seems, every time I post on my blog I do it so sporadically. I am not doing it on purpose, I swear! It is just sometimes I have trouble coming up with a good topic to write about. So in order not to bore my readers, I end up not writing at all. I would rather write about something a little interesting or share something that I actually enjoy with my audience instead of writing something for the sake of writing. In my opinion, it is far worse than not writing anything at all, when there is no topic to speak of. Do you not agree?

Anyway, I have been keeping myself locked away in my mind for quite some time now, and have been thinking a little about my writing hobby and writing career. Basically my writing future. I have been wondering how many times a writer must write to be considered a dedicated, serious and good writer? I have heard of writers who write almost every second of every day. I have heard of writers who write a page or two per day to keep up their craft. I have heard of some who write every other day. And I have even heard of those who write as sporadically as I do. However, the million dollar question is: when is it considered overdoing it and when is it considered being too lax when writing is concerned?

I am aware that everyone is different and everyone does things differently, but what is considered a good balance for writing? I always wondered about these kinds of questions? Am I not a good and serious writer if I do not put pen to paper at least once every day or every other day? Granted, I am mostly writing as a hobby, but it does not make me any less serious than a writer who writes every day of his or her life, does it? I would really like to hear your opinions on this.

Hey, You, Young Women of the World!

Hello again Tomodachi’s,

Apologies, apologies, apologies. Though this blog post is coming MUCH later (a day later in fact) than I was expecting to post it, but as promised, here it is. On my Monday’s blog post I spoke about me presenting a spoken word poem on stage at the Hostel Rooms on Sunday evening. The poem is called Hey, You, Young Women of the World. When you read the poem below you will be able to interpret the poem the way you want to interpret it. It is alright to debate on what it means to you or how you interpreted it. Continue reading

Avoiding to provide proper education because of taboos only breeds ignorance

Hello Tomodachi’s

It is Wednesday yet again and the damn weeks are going so fast! Whew!

Anyway, I will get straight to the point. I wanted to talk about a Facebook post from Buzzfeed I came across a few days ago about comments made by various men about women’s anatomy and menstrual cycle etc. I was floored by the ignorance and stupidity of some of these said ‘men’.
