When change comes, it can’t be stopped. Like a train that’s unwavering, it moves straight ahead at full speed.
Most of my life changing moments come in the months of August and September, and it’s this inevitable force that sneaks up on me with the same amount of fear as euphoria. Most everyone I know has been financially impacted by COVID-19, and for whatever reason, the stimulus check has yet to make it to my bank account. …

In March 1939, Billie Holiday performed her final song of the night in a small cafe in New York. With a single spotlight on her — she separated her lips and out flowed lyrics that left the crowd speechless.
“Southern trees bearing strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the roots
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees”
Strange Fruit became an anthem for black culture during the Segregation Era because of the lynchings that occurred up to the 1930s. …
I’ve never been more turned off physically and emotionally when I hear the word diet.
Let me be honest with you —
My diet consists of a lot of caffeine, donuts, and pasta. On occasions, I’ll crave cucumbers, hummus, and a nice fruit blend.
There’s a lot of science behind brain chemistry attached to mental health issues such as depression and generalized anxiety disorders, but it can be difficult to figure out what to eat when you’re stressed, on a budget, and unaware of where to start.
