Goodbye Painful 20s.

Posted: June 10, 2018 by Harper

Pretty soon I will no longer be a member of my twenties and I will no longer have the excuse of figuring it out before thirty. It’d be nice to do that within the next twelve days but I’m not rushing towards nirvana. Though it’d be nice for some things to fall into place for me.

Do I Need A Ho Phase?

Posted: April 17, 2018 by Harper

You ever want something? Not want it? And then want it again? Here’s my dilemma. I operate on a myriad of what ifs. I try to calm these questions down often because they do nothing for the progression of my life but when it comes to sex we (me, myself and i) skrrt skrrt like the Migos and press pause on the yolo. Listen, I have legitimate concerns because there is no such thing as Dickfax or Yelp reviews so I can’t make an informed decision on who I should lend out my body to.

Test of Faith

Posted: March 11, 2018 by Harper

I’ve been noticing this pattern in my life where I feel like I’m being tested by God. Every negative point that I hit it’s like he’s waiting to see my reaction. I mean it’s definitely easy to stay positive and have extreme faith when your life is great and going in the direction that you feel it should be but what happens when the ground gets shaky? Can you still stand strong in your faith that everything will work itself out? Last year, I had an exceptionally great year, I stepped out on faith, got a new job that I…

Being Bout That Action

Posted: January 29, 2018 by Harper

I’ve had a hard time following through with my many ideas all of my life. As soon as I get excited about doing something I get this dark cloud. It’s almost an instant thought of it won’t work or I don’t know anything about it for it to work and I just let it go. The feeling of feeling stupid for asking questions or not knowing what steps to do to move forward with the idea. I’ve been trying to start this business for two years. I finally started taking steps towards making it happen and I feel the biggest…

2018, Here I Come

Posted: December 31, 2017 by Harper

I swear on my plug and my mom that 2017 wasn’t easy for me at all. I started the year off still crying because my granny died, then crying again because my uncle died. Hovering over my mom while she slept praying that she would never leave me and between those times I went on trips, I got a new job that paid me more and made me happy and I met some cool people that actually spend time with me. Carla and I tackled a country and watched an otter give himself head at an aquarium. (Animals were disgusting…

Getting Out of My Own Way

Posted: December 25, 2017 by Harper

I’ve been recently applying for better positions and each time I feel like I’ve been overlooked. I am consistently one of the hardest workers in the building. It’s not my opinion but everyone at my job tells me how much I deserve to be promoted but when it comes down to it there’s no reward. Not only does it hurt my feelings but my pride too. How do I go from monthly reviews that that end early because theirs nothing to say to no upward track.

Is That You God?

Posted: December 9, 2017 by Harper

My last night in Los Angeles I was standing on the corner of N Orange St. outside the CVS near the Chinese Theaters. I had just came from a night of watching movies at the AFI Fest and was waiting for my Uber to pull up. I was still tipsy from the two hurricanes I downed like juice and my balance was off. I half twirled and stumbled, looking around to make sure that no one could tell. I looked at my phone and saw it was 11:11 and made a wish. When I looked down from my phone, my…

What We Settling For?

Posted: September 22, 2017 by Harper

I have been receiving these messages reinforcing the notion of settling and it pisses me off. It gets so repetitive and tired. If you initially look at something and dismiss it with disdain, why are you forcing yourself to like it? That maybe you’re asking for too much? Or that this might be all you deserve? That somehow what you want to have is not realistic? That you’re running out of time?  You’re being picky is my favorite insult. /sarcasm
