This week’s lesson: Know and Respect yourself

Sometimes you have to learn that you're working on something bigger than yourself. The world. And the ones who know and understand, are the ones who will stick around. After all what else do you need but that? My internal thoughts to myself.. as I struggle with shedding the overly-empathic and supportive self. I've helped [...]

Early morning meandering thoughts on race, desire and Garvey

Marking difference begets miscommunication, which breeds misunderstanding and could lead to feelings of contempt, hatred and hurt. Yesterday's class on colour, difference, browning and Jamaica was great and very, very interesting, not least of all because of a small breakout session as we discussed with our peers the question ; 'How is mixing problematic in [...]

What did Eve-Hawaa feel..

They look for signs where there are not, Fate in the fateless, I would rather spend a day in supposed sin, Then allow an eternity in which we all Explained our misdeed. What can you not see? This is me not creating a "wrong" destiny. There is some pattern here emerging, This is life washed [...]

The FT Piss me off.. too ill for this shit.

Fickleness is staying to speed, Allowing the screen to freeze, Afraid of testing our frailties, Surely bravery is in accomplishing all feats. Learning to trust instinct, [...]
