I really wanted to do this post last week, but I was not in the right space to do it.  I was thinking negatively about the situation, even though I had handled it well.  I had a few people tell me their response would have been totally different, but I did well.  Honestly, during my response, I just kept thinking I'm trying to build a brand.  I can't do that while going off on people at the same time.  Who is going to want to support someone like that?  I wouldn't!  I don't (at least not knowingly)!  Well, let me tell you this madness.  

Last Sunday, I posted something on my twitter about a sermon at my church.  All of a sudden, this lady jumps on my feed and basically took my tweet completely out of context.  I even told her she took it out of context.  I responded and thought that was the end of the situation.  She came back at me.  Something told me to start looking at her feed.  In my opinion, it was full of her being cruel to people because of their opinions.  Every single person has an opinion and just because you do not agree, doesn't mean that it is any of your business.  I digress...

I, still being polite, came back to her.  She finally left me alone.  I won't even post the feed because honestly, her name is not going to be anywhere on my blog to get any attention.  She's not worth that amount of time.  So, why am I even telling you about it?  I thought you would never ask.  

I write about what I know.  What I know is that I am a plus size diva.  What I know is what I see going on in my church.  What I know is my routine to put on makeup.  What I know is what products I use on my body.  What I know is where I like to shop.  What I know is how to design roadways.  What I know is how to mind my own business!  

Each day, I see a tweet on here that tears up my nerves - I don't respond (unless it is a cool hashtag I want to be involved with).  I don't understand why people feel a need to jump out of their lane and stir up something that is not any of their business and especially has nothing to do with them.  She had been on various feeds all day responding to something she knows nothing about!  Quite frankly, it was annoying and so was she.  She is a blogger and typically I'm supportive of blogs and bloggers, but I cannot support her.  Not because of the content, but because of how she treats people on social media.  If you are mean on your feed, I just think you're mean in real life...even though the person is typically nice and using the mask of a screen to hide.   

I wish people would use social media for good instead of constantly trolling or tearing people down.  It's annoying and stupid!  There are no other words for it.  As for the lady that attempted to come at me, I hope she decides to never grace my page again.  I didn't block her.  Oh no!  That would have been too good for her.  I want her to see me.  Then I want her to think long and hard before coming at me again.  But if she does, kind words will be waiting and so will another post.

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.  
Cheesy Zucchini Breadsticks
Serving Size: 6 Servings
4 cups grated zucchini 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese 1/3 cups parmesan cheese 1 egg 1 teaspoon garlic salt 1 cup grated cheese of choice (for topping)

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…
