Box of soap

Disclaimer:  This post has absolutely nothing to do with my plus size life.  This is all about stuff I'm seeing that is getting on my nerves! 

I'll be the first to admit that I don't have the greatest grasp on the English language.  I know the basics to do some technical writing at work, handle some conversations at work, write this blog, and hold a conversation with some great people.  But I have to admit, there are just some things I cannot stand and I'll only talk about a couple of them right now.  

Yall, what is this?!  At the beginning of the month, I used it in a post on my Instagram and had to ask someone how to spell it.  In fact, I just went back to the post to make sure I was spelling it write for this blog post!  If you are using it instead of saying babe, really?  It's the same amount of syllables.  Ok, it was cute when we were having fun about #saltbae, but now it's just out of control.  And here lately, some of the things I've seen have just been cruel and potentially hurtful to the people they are towards. 

People, really?  If you want to say the word, just say the word.  We're all adults here and quite frankly, most kids have already heard it.  This has been showing up in the middle of sentences, at the end of sentences, and then when they are trying to make a point, put it at the beginning.  Let me give you some examples! 

"Bihhhhh, let me tell you about my day"

"I'm having a long day, bihhhh, what is going on?"

"Yall, I'm getting this money bihhhh."

In any of these sentences, could something else have been used?  Yes!  However, I guess this is a just a phase that my generation (and wannabes of my generation) want to use right now.  

Ok, my rant is now done.  What do you see going around social media right now that you cannot stand?

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…
