I could be a horrible brat.  The way I'm feeling right now, I could be the brattiest brat in the world, but I have other things to do.  I can write.  I can use my platform and just vent a little bit. I mean, yall are my people and I think you enjoy these random spots of insanity, as long as I keep them to a minimum.  

My week has been special, to say the least.  I've been called names that I have not earned, one of the guys teaching my training graduated from the same high school I did, I thought something was going my way just to have it (seemingly) snatched from me, and my frustration with life has just hit a new level (too much to explain and probably too personal for this space).  

Even though this has been my week and I've had solid reasons to have some pretty epic tantrums, I have somehow managed to not be escorted out of the place I work or go into a fit of rage while driving.  But even in this madness, there have been a few bright spots - I was able to have lunch with one of my favorite people, I was able to pick up a part time (paying) writing gig, and I was able to turn in some freelance work for an online publication.  Nah, not giving details about the part time or the freelance just yet, but know that I am very excited about this.  I mean, how can I not be excited because I get to write?!  However, this does lead to a bit a news....

Remember those short stories I was going to start writing and posting?  Well, those are going to have to go on the back burner right now.  Not saying that I will never come back to them, but right now, I just don't have the time to devote to them.  When it comes to my writing, I'm not saying that it has to be perfect, but it has to be at least something I wouldn't mind reading again in a few years.  If I don't have the time to make it really good, I'm not going to post it.  Maybe this just isn't the time in my life to do those and should be kept for me to see right now.  Yes, I have already written a few.

So, when I look back on it, even though this week has been horrific (to me) in some spots, I am still very much blessed.  Tomorrow, I plan on having a blast with my friends in the afternoon and totally rock out during my business meeting tomorrow.  My agent expects nothing less, so I have to give the people what they want.  

Maybe I'm just in need for a pretty solid weekend.  Well, if that's the case, just bring it!  

How was your week?

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
