If there’s one thing many of us may be able to agree on, it’s that there is a certain tension in the air. Let’s face it, our glorious president (stated with much sarcasm) has managed to take his tiny hands, reach right into the backs of sleeping racists, and wind them up for activation. The crazy part of this is that many of these wound-up zombies don’t even realize that hate lives within them. Continue reading
Since the start of the Dreamworld, there’s been a constant theme of searching for my passion and ultimate happiness, while inspiring others and sharing success stories. It’s taken several years, but I’ve finally discovered that it is hard searching for myself and inspiring all of you at the same time. This explains my frequent breaks from blogging. At some point, I needed to take my own advice, right? Well, I did…and it worked! Continue reading
It’s easy to praise our favorite singer, actor, athlete, or musician, but what about our everyday motivators and heroes? It would be a special world if educators were held in just as high of a regard for the work that they do in shaping the minds of many around the world. For Norristown, PA residents, they won’t have to hope for a world like this much longer. Continue reading
It’s a sad day when anyone has reached the point of complete mental and physical exhaustion, but it seems like it would be much worse to have to go through it in the public eye. Since Kanye West’s recent meltdown, the world seems to be split in its reaction. Some actually care, while others have made it clear that they don’t. This brings up an interesting question: When did we stop caring about the well-being of celebrities? Continue reading
It is never good to be more interested in someone’s downfall than you are in their success.
Have you ever known anyone that seems to have just way too much time on their hands or not enough goals and they continuously gossip? I mean, let’s be real, if gossiping were a sport, they may actually win a trophy. Continue reading
As another MLK day is upon us, it’s worth setting time aside to reflect on our role in this world.
As my Mac Attack series starts to wind down, there are a few things I still want to Continue reading
In life, there will be plenty of things that will happen that you may not be proud of. Things that you’d give anything to take back or to do over. There will be moments where you’re embarrassed or ashamed. But it won’t all be bad…these are just the things that may interrupt your seasons of happiness and joy. Continue reading
Please don’t take my distance from the the cyber world as a sign of neglect for my blog site. But, you know when you walk into your house or apartment and it just doesn’t feel like home? Like it’s missing something? Maybe you have to go to Ikea and grab the perfect couch or the perfect coffee table. Maybe you need to put up some family pictures or pieces of art. Whatever IT is that’s missing, you may feel something in the pit of your stomach that reveals itself and doesn’t go away until you’ve found the missing puzzle piece.
Well, that’s kind of what I feel like right now. I love blogging and have developed a safe haven where I can freely express myself, on my own terms. However, lately I’ve felt like something has been missing from my “home” and it has kept me from actually writing a blog post for almost a month. I’ve gone weeks without putting my thoughts on screen and it’s all because I don’t want to write bullshit.
So much has been happening around the world. We have a fraternity that was caught on tape, singing about hanging niggers from a tree. President Obama made history by celebrating the 50th anniversary of the march in Selma. Stars are coming “out” on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Black actors and actresses are finally getting leading roles on prime-time television. Some big things are happening and I still don’t have anything to write about. Why? Because the rest of the world is writing about the same damn thing. I love talking about pop culture and to tell you the truth, it brings in many readers. But, I want something much greater than the next Necolebitchie.com. I want to really make a difference. I want to become the best writer that I can be and not for all of you, but for me.
I’m in the midst of a season of change and I’m embracing it. I have shared all of my ups and downs, my epiphanies, my ideas, my everything on Danithedreamgirl.com and I will continue to do so. No matter what comes of my site, just know that I don’t want to just feed all of YOU the same old crap that you see on every other blog site. I want my ish to mean something. Ahhhhh, now that I’ve gotten all of that off of my chest, I can breathe again.
