Sex and Marriage

The other day, I watched Bethenny Ever After, and on this particular episode, she introduced how tough the second year of marriage can be.

Let’s just say I will definitely have to work twice as hard to make a good impression. So my question is WHY people Why? Continue reading “WHY people Why?”

A Change Has Come with Damon Berry

I went to a concert last night, with some of my friends Alexandria and MO and we watched what I consider to be one of the best voices out there perform, Damon Berry, a Singer from Gary, Indiana. He blew my mind…Throughout his two hour performance, he took me back to my favorites, Barry White, Anita Baker and the lists went on. It seemed like I almost forgot how much music transcends the soul… Continue reading “A Change Has Come with Damon Berry”

Failed lessons Learned

Often times I look around and try to analyze why some lessons are just so hard for me to learn. Constantly pondering on similar decisions that should not be an option, somehow, still finds a role to play in my mind. These decisions are usually mistakes that I should have learned from. So I start to think,  when are my FAILED LESSONS, finally going to be LEARNED? Continue reading “Failed lessons Learned”
