Honestly, everything is beginning to make sense. ✨ Much love to @_jordanbreaux for holding me accountable & keeping me grounded in peace.
It’s so hard NOT to become jaded when folks throw daggers at your character or when they have a limited view of things. Patience is hard. Bad habits run deep, but they are not impossible to conquer. One thing I’m striving to do is to be honest about the shit that hurts my feelings, grinds my gears, or even takes me outside of myself. Note 2 self: approach everything with love & hopefully you can leave some behind.
Learning that separation is necessary, but the love shared between family is never ending. ~Tried a new sushi spot with my teacher mum & little sis 🥳
Been rockin’ & rollin’ since 1996
For Margaret, Howard Sr., Levi, Mona, and me. We made it!!! ♥️
Receiving the Beloved Social Justice Award today means more to me knowing that I had an opportunity to give back to Academy of St. Benedict the African and the special person who constantly speaks life into me, educates me, and continues to fuel my heart for activism. • I met this lanky woman my sophomore year as she planned Take Back the Knight. I saw her intentional compassion, realness, and empathy, with a light that shone so bright from within. Our spirits have always been friends, it took us some time to catch up! • Margaret, you have been a catalyst for change while practicing mindfulness. Your influence & being so much to me that I’ll never forget the deep friendship that you’ve shared with me since I met you. I love being me 10x’s more because I met you. Here’s your invitation to the rest of my life, Crummy 💗
I’m a firm believer that we’ll always be on the path that we need to be. There was a lot of indecision, questioning, & time spent contemplating this next chapter, but here we are - celebrating another transition! I thought I’d spent my last winter in Wisconsin🙂 lol, but I am so so glad to announce that I’ll be continuing my education at Marquette University in Milwaukee to pursue a Master’s of Education in Educational Policy & Leadership with a concentration in Student Affairs. Momma, we made it!! • @marquetteu, are you ready for me?!
The poet & the poem🌼
The best versions of me - my Aries & my Cancer. I wouldn’t be me without y’all. ❤️31 days left
I probably tell y’all this too much (lol): college wouldn’t have been the same without y’alls brutal honesty, love, food, laughs, horrible mixed drinks, & unsolicited opinions. Thank you & I love you -I promise I’m not crying.........yet
