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

The Scary Part

Posted: September 13, 2017 by Harper

I am supposed to be sleep but I just bought my AFI Fest tickets (which I’ll talk more about on my travel blog ) and not to brag but that pass was $400 and the fact that I been overspending on make up and food but my budget still worked out has me gassed.

Breaking Bad starring Kung Fu Kenny

Posted: September 1, 2017 by Harper

Last night was epic beyond measure. Who knew that I could be so carefree. I’m bald (and I was wearing a hat last night) but I let my hair down and enjoyed myself so much. The J. Cole concert was cute but last night tho. The concert was amazing. I sung and danced the whole night but I did something that I have always been too anxious to do.

The Art of Letting Go

Posted: August 13, 2017 by Harper

i never felt so alive… Shyness has choked the goodness out of every moment. I’ve always been self conscious about how the world views me in public spaces. Are they staring at me? Is there something wrong with what I’m doing? Always jealous of the people that I’d see living carefree dancing their hearts out off beat, on beat wishing I could live a life that wasn’t so consumed by what people may say. I would always go to concerts and I’d do a cute little head bob and rap/sing along to the music. Maybe a stranger next to me…
