When I started this blog, I named it Ramblings because I didn’t ever want to be tied to one topic. When I started interviewing girls who self-harmed, I realized how much I preferred doing interviews over the basic blog write up. It’s a good thing I consider others way more interesting than blogging my own thoughts and opinions constantly, right? Since then, I’ve talked to numerous people and have covered a plethora of topics. My favorite is talking to people who are willing to share their stories. People who are willing to be honest and forthcoming about their circumstances and their history. I found another one of those individuals and I really enjoyed speaking with him. Take a look! This is Olusheyi Banjo. I saw his video on a friend’s timeline. After listening to his song that keeps you humming long after it’s done, I immediately wanted to know his story. … click here to read the full article.
~ by Bob Marley or Bob Dylan? Not sure. A meme with this quote was in my newsfeed on Facebook the other day. It made me stop scrolling, I thought about it for a minute.

Today, when I finally pulled myself out of bed, I decided I’d better run a few errands and get some things for the house. Then I’d return home to get my day going. Last night was the fourth of July so I slept in later than usual, which was lovely. My holiday was spent at my cousin’s house who lives out in the country.

Get it? Jack of all trades… Oh well. I met Earl in a Facebook author group named Clean Indie Reads. If you’ve been following me at all, you’ve heard me mention them quite a few times. If you’ve read my book, you would have seen my mention of them in the acknowledgements. Earl is a man of many talents. His journey of giving up cigarettes led him to publish a book detailing the steps he took to kick the habit. It’s an interesting read with humorous tidbits thrown in. You can take many of the things he says and apply them to your own journey. If you follow Earl on Twitter, you might be the lucky recipient of one of his many beautiful landscape or flower photos. However, I have been the lucky recipient of some serious web building skills. I used to have another website that a friend help set … click here to read the full article.
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but my book cover will knock most peep’s socks off. I’m not being big-headed; I’m just being honest. Easy for me to be boastful when I didn’t do the work. Well, I did one thing. I took the photo of the girl on the cover. That’s it. I’m not going to post it here because I don’t want to you to see my cover any other way than how it is right now. You know, I can’t even take credit for finding Zei. He actually did some work for my honey first… and then I kind of stole him. Zei helped us take our projects to the next level and I’m so grateful. He took the time to work with me and ask questions. He made a gazillion changes for me when I couldn’t make up my ever-lovin’ mind! I know I drove this poor … click here to read the full article.
