Watch “Jazz at the Shed|| It’s So Inconvenient Being a Woman” on YouTube


Here we are, taking advantage of one of Chicago’s beautiful summer nights, Jazzin at the Shed…then along comes you know who. Really? It’s so inconvenient being a woman sometimes, I swear. 

But the irony of it all is that I thought I was prepared. I had everything in my bag, EXCEPT the one thing that I really needed. You’ve GOT to be kidding me! Not to mention, the monsoon of a storm that was going on outside that shut down our boat ride and had us stuck at the shed. Really?! But we were going to see the fireworks!!! Smh. “Like” if  any of this has ever happened to you before…

Blog Thought #1: Consider Your Friends & Family


Last Monday, I put out a post entitled, “Writing About Blogging as Blog Development,” which outlined my reasons for wanting to write about blogging and starting a new craft in general. I mentioned that every Monday I would write a post related to either my blog/vlog or a thought related to the process of stepping out of one’s comfort zone.

Today I am writing my first actual Blog Thought which is about inviting your family and friends to be apart of your process or journey.

Often times when we begin a new project we tend to leave our family and friends out of the mix. We think to ourselves, they don’t want to hear what I have to say or they probably don’t want to be bothered. And the truth is that, that may very well be true, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.

Defining What You Can’t Live Without


Often times we get into “bad” relationships. And it’s not because there are no good men or women out there, it’s because we haven’t discovered the things that are truly important to us– the things that truly matter.

We tend to be more focused on things that can be negotiated (i.e, looks, physical appearance, dress, etc.) rather than traits that should not be negotiated. We sacrifice things like respect or faithfulness because we are too concerned with things that are superficial.
