I’ve been very transparent about my struggles on here. I even admitted that my posting schedule has dropped significantly because of these struggles.

This blog post is an honest, raw, and inside view of my ongoing experience as a Hurricane survivor. I am still processing my experience as I am without power, running water, and food so please bear with me as I share with you my experience…
I had planned to write about SZA’s CTRL album as I’ve been listening to at, reading the lyrics, and finding interviews all week. However, I find myself with a heavy heart today. The murder of Philando Castile by Officer Jeronimo Yanez reached complete acquittal of all charges today. I’m sick.

I like who I’m becoming and God is an inseparable part of that. As I’ve been developing, I have been trying to figure out how to explain to people who Christianity as a religion is flawed like all religions but Christianity as a faith is more than church on Sunday, it’s a love story everyday.
Being up to 121 posts since the relaunch of Everything’s Magnificent leaves a great feeling. This is one of the few times in my life where I set out to do something and truly made it a part of who I am. I have created content, branding, and a new direction for my life to head into.
