The purpose

July 4th 2016

 

To be seen and don’t heard, needlepoint and sewing, scarf knitting and other crap girls should do,

Bouncy hair with bows, a freshly powdered nose and the most adorable giggle on cue.

Cooking and cleaning are an absolute must! Don’t even bother to meet the parents if you can’t.

He says that you’re perfect, tells his mom you’re totally worth it, meanwhile this heifer doesn’t like you before you even shake hands.

Sex on demand! Don’t even bother to Netflix and chill. Don’t you know that pleasing man is one of your main purposes in life?

Equal rights? Lol, I don’t think so. To the maternity ward you will go. But on your way, make sure you become a wife.

Don’t bother striving for your dream career or waiting for Prince Charming, in the real world, this journey is hard and long.

The old timers want you to settle down, that’s the easy way out.

I’ll keep pushing until I prove them wrong.

No disrespect to young mothers and wives. If you like it, then I love it! Just saying, that it’s not for me.

Don’t try to dictate my purpose, I’ll figure it out! But what I’m not is who you want me to be.

Day Dreaming

 

Blogging 101 Assignment #3

As i previously mentioned, my blog is geared more towards the mature young adult crowd so that would be the main group of persons to whom I would like to exhibit my blog. However, I am certainly not prejudice towards any other age groups. Come one, come all 😊 lol.

To those of you who have already been exploring my posts, you will know that poetry is nothing new to my site. However, I’ve never added any visuals to my poems so i think i’ll nake that my ‘new’ element. Please see a VERY brief poem below.

Day Dreaming

I sleep with my eyes open, dreaming of what’s out there.

Hoping for a day I can do what I truly want without a care.

If it were up to me I’d quit my job and focus on being the female Hemmingway of modern times,

Though some of my peers can only commit to makeup tutorials and Instagram modelling online 😒.

I’ll admit that I have a lot of hobbies: cooking, writing, sketching, photography just to name a few.

In my head I’m a master of them all and I’ll keep doing what I love. Dream on, dream until your dreams come true.

(Btw, the pic is not edited, just my real life view 😁).

Who I am and why I’m here

Blogging 101

Assignment #1

Who I am and why I’m here.

I’m a 20-something year old young professional whose looking for an artist outlet. After receiving a very favorable response for Writing 101 assignments, I’m hoping this course will go just as smoothly.

As to why I’m here…..I’m here because I love to write and I imagine that blogging would be a great way to incorporate my love with a fun new hobby. As I mentioned on my ‘about me’ page, I’m not here to discuss serious social issues or bring awareness to some cause, I’m just writing about the basic life and times of your typical millennial and whatever categories fall within this large scope: food, music, photography, social networking and of course cocktails J.

Feel free to view some of my ‘insight’ pieces or my poetry.
