the number one thing that attracted me to my boyfriend was that he is a man of character. consistently, he strives to be better. when i first met him, he was already doing great things in school and had a job. his passion and drive to be a better person, to be a better man blew me away. but as time went forward he was seeking more and more ways to build and grow. he went from undergrad to grad school, from one job to two jobs, from going to church to teaching sunday school, from hanging out with the men of the church to working to fortify the men’s ministry. in my life i’ve always been a hard worker, but i’ve never met a man who inspired me with his work ethic. and he continues to push and grow. he’s a man that effortlessly seeks God. and when things get rough, he’ll say “i think i’m going to start a new bible study” or “i’m going to start fasting next week and increase my bible study.” doing good and doing what’s right is just in him. in his blood and in his veins. his insistence on cultivating himself, his relationships, his spirituality, makes him a man of substance. independent of the good he does by and with me, just as a man, he stands as a man of character. that alone is the reason why i am drawn to him.
since it’s neo season
here’s me last year with my line sisters after brining in a new crop of dynamic women
praying that all the pros who are bringing in neos take their charge very seriously and remember to never forget the legacy of our founders in and the importance of building these women up to prepare them for the future
p.s. my line sisters are fine as hell

Happy Charter Day to the TAntalaizing women of the Theta Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.! On January 9, 1971, this amazing chapter was created and since then, they have been doing amazing work on the yard at Northwestern University. Amazing women have come through Theta Alpha, including Mara Brock Akil, amazing lawyers, teachers, journalists, writers, nurses, doctors and of course, ME!!! I’m so proud to have crossed the burning sands through this chapter.
All of my love sorors! OO-OOP!

27: Worst sexual idea you ever had:
man, the worst idea i ever had when it came to sex was having ice cream and whipped cream put all over my body and licked off and what not
sure, it sounds good in theory, but it gets messy and sticky and gross and sprinkles get into all kinds of places
never again lol
12: Is one orgasm enough? Are multiple orgasms necessary?
one is more than enough. i have these very powerful orgasms that knock me out for the whole rest of the day. one is way more than enough. the times that ive had 2 were great, but then im spent for like 2 days. na man, i’m cool with one really big one. and it’s usually after he has his, because i have to tap out after mine lol
17: Have you ever tasted yourself? [If no, would you?] [If yes, what did you think?]
my grandma used to teach us “never give a man something you haven’t tasted first” i’m sure she was talking about cooking but….
i’m fucking delicious lol

in high school i was a quiet nerd that also was a varsity athlete and president and members of student groups. in high school it was the first time i realized that although i was an introvert, people were drawn to me and i was always called to lead. i preferred to be on the side lines, but always ended up in charge of stuff. i was also very pro black in high school which made for…interesting interactions at a predominately white school. i really did stay to myself when i could.
i wouldn’t say i was popular, but i had my circle of friends in school. my closest friends were outside the school.
and i “went out” relatively a lot. my mom trusted me because i had such good grades, so i got away with murder. so i used to go to parties, i used to have all kinds of boy drama. i used to sneak out. but it never interfered with my school work so my mom never really found out
Heading to Howard is always amazing. Standing in the foot steps of our founders, I’m in awe of all the beautiful Delta women. My pros, my ship and my neos, in front of Fortitude
What sisterhood looks like. I am the woman I am today because the women that crossed before me paved the way, the women that crossed with me supported me and the women that crossed after me continue to inspire me. #ThetaAlphaMade
the more that i learn
the more i realize
that ignorance really is bliss.
knowing about the suffering of mines,
of people that look like me
sometimes keeps me up at night.
i get overwhelmed and sick to my stomach
because it feels like,
no matter how hard we work, how hard we love, how hard we survive
we’re always fighting.
our ancestors got no peace,
and we exist today
with restless bones.
i wish i didn’t know as much as i know
sleep would come
Everybody, meet my boyfriend, Idris. Every Sunday we go out and explore Brooklyn. It’s a way to be active, even on my rest day, as well as say good bye to my city before I leave for law school.
Today we visited family and then I found a farmer’s market and just filled up on the juiciest peaches.
And I just rode Idris aaall daaay looong
