The #bujo and me!

Well, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I'm enjoying a new adventure by having a bullet journal.  Many people use this journal as a great way to organize their daily, weekly, or monthly routine.  I think that is pretty cool and I've enjoyed looking at some of the layouts.  For you to get an idea of what my bullet journal looks like and what I'm using it for, just click here.  

I didn't buy my journal until the first week of July.  In other words, I missed all of the adventures I had that first week.  They may even be forgotten sometime in the future, but from here on out, I'll be able to have reminders.  Seeing as how things evolve, I know my journal will evolve too.  Maybe it will turn into a weekly format.  I don't know, I might get so fancy that it turns into a monthly format.  We'll just have to see how that goes.  For right now, I'm cool with the disorganized mess that is my bullet journal (#bujo for short).  

For the end of July, I decided to focus on one thing each day that made me happy.  Well, that is how I decided to end my first month in the bullet journal.  If you take a look at the photo, you will see that I decided to go with a partial sun design and even used bright colors to get my message across - happiness.  For each day I did my version of the bullet journal in July (which is all but that first week), I picked the best thing I did or best event from that day.  When I have one of my down days, and believe me one will always come, I will have something to hold in my hand to look back on and see happiness!

I know this type of bullet journal is absolutely weird to some of my fellow #bujo peeps, but it is working for me right now.  Like I said, I'm sure it will evolve and get more creative as time goes on.  But for right now, I'm just going to enjoy this style and continue to do a positive page each month.

Here is my question - how do you #bujo?

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

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…
