The Callback!

So, I am going to try to write this post while keeping something a secret.  I still am trying to figure out some things and that is the only reason I am keeping something under wraps, for now.  

Today I had the opportunity to meet with someone concerning an endeavor that I wanted to pursue.  What I thought was a door closing could quite possibly be a few doors (yes, plural) opening.  I listened to her and she gave me some advice about how to go about some things.  She even let me know an event that she was in charge of and encouraged me to check out the site and put my writing skills to good use.  Like I said, I don't want to say exactly what it is right now, but I feel like I am going to be able to in just a few short weeks.

This is the point of this post tonight, Don't Give Up!  When it seems like a door is being slammed in your face, it's probably not.  It's just one closing so that you don't go down a path that you are not supposed to go down.  Pay attention to what people tell you.  You never know when they are going to say something that lights a fire in you.  When I write, my inspiration not only comes from my own experiences, but also from conversations I've had with people and things that I have observed other people doing.  

If we live in our own bubble, we will never truly get the chance to enjoy all that life has to offer us.  Take chances.  Make mistakes.  New take opportunities for granted.  You never know what is going to happen.  Make your life worth living.

Big body, big hair

Earlier this week, I was cruising around the twitterverse and noticed a cool shirt floating around.  The shirt said, no you cannot touch my hair.  I thought it was funny, but it is a huge thing in the natural hair community that people do not like for their hair to be touched.  I might be the weird one because it honestly doesn't bother me.  Now, just don't come up to me and touch my hair, but if you ask and I'm feeling a bit friendly (LOL), I just might let you feel these beautiful natural curls that God so graciously gave me.  

In my opinion, my hair is awesome.  However, after my transition from processed to natural, I didn't always feel that was the case.  I was so used to my hair being straight and long.  But, I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter until I eventually did the big chop and I became 100% natural.  

I guess now, I feel more confident.  As the years have passed, I've been more confident in my body and now I'm a lot more confident in my hair.…

Tasty Tales - Cheesy Zucchini Breadsticks

I posted one of my dinner dishes on my Instagram page this week and you seemed to have really loved it.  I've never had so many DMs asking me for a recipe.  Since you wanted the recipe, I've decided to share it here in a post.  I can't tell you how I Tameika-ized it because I've made it differently each time I've made it.  However, I can give you the basics and what I've learned.

I'm Ready 8255

In the same week, the industry lost two icons.  One has graced our closet and phone cases for years, while the other was invited into our homes on a weekly basis.  These two deaths reminded us of how life can seem so perfect, yet one is hurting on the inside.  The response to both suicides was overwhelming and once again, it got a very taboo conversation started.  On the other hand, it also brought out the ugly.

It's been a couple of weeks since all of this happened and the commotion has since come to a minimum.  You are probably wondering why has she waited until now to talk about this?  It's simple - I wasn't ready.  As a survivor, I wasn't ready.  As someone who faces anxiety on a daily basis, I wasn't ready.  As a blogger disappointed in some of the people in the blogger community, I'm ready.

My social media may or may not light up because of this post, but I'm going to say it anyway.  I'm highly disappointed in some of my fellow bloggers.  While we…
