InstaSnapBook: The war against Snap Chat

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Yall, Mark Zuckerberg has Zero Chill. If it was 96 degrees in the shade and you needed just a bit of chill to keep you from dying, and Mark was the only person around to help you, you’d die of a heat stroke because that man has nothing to give you. Zukerberg is the villain in the comic books that never knows when to quit. He must be stopped but can’t no one stop him. He might as well be the damn Joker at this point cuz he’s out here killing the social media game and always smiling about it too. By now you have to know what I’m talking about. I didn’t even know my Facebook app updated. I accidentally swiped my finger to the left and I swore I opened Snapchat. This man swears he’s the Beyonce of Social Media, just releasing new shit without a warning. Who do you think you are Mark? What’s good Mark?

This is, of course, if everything is going well–I.e. You have the finances, you’re passing your courses, life doesn’t throw a wrench in your plans, etc. With that said, I attended the University of the Virgin Islands from August 2010 to May 2015 (4.5 years). Had I actually done what I was supposed to–like go to class and take school seriously, because debt is no joke–I would have been out of there in three …

My Hair History

Now this is a story all about when, I chopped my hair off-got a bald head. I’d like to take a minute just sit right there and I’ll tell you how I became a girl without any hair. Dah Dah-dah dah dahhhh dahhh Dahhhh. Anyways. So this was where my hair journey began. May 10, 2013 this was the length of my hair. That beautiful baby girl is mine. She’s four going on 53 now.   I then chopped my hair shorter earlier 2014 because I wanted to try something different. Short hair seemed like the thing to do.   I decided then that I was done with permed hair. Relaxer. Whatever word yall want to use to be technical. Potato, potahtoe I was done with whatever it was called. Before that however, I had pretty much just grown bored with my hair in general. This was a novel time for me because I was going through relationship changes, school, work, a whole lot of shit so it was just goodbye hair. They say when …
