The Fighter

When I hopped off the plane at LGA, I knew that I was in for something special. As the freezing air ate away the warmth in my finger tips  and my bones suddenly felt more fragile than ever, I felt hope for the first time in a while.

Update: Holy Moly!

Is this thing still on?

I’ve been away and there’s a reason for that. I’m going to be an intern with Entertainment Weekly in New York. Let me repeat that – I AM GOING TO BE A FULL TIME PAID INTERN FOR ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY IN NEW YORK CITY. (Okay, not exactly repeating but still!) For a Florida native with a background in English, that’s a big deal!

So with a very small savings account and big dreams, I’m packing up my bags and moving. I’ve had people tell me how crazy this is but at the end of the day – I gotta do it. It’s my foot in the door. I’m doing it!

And as I make this major change in my life, I’m thinking about my time in Florida as well. I’ve made great friends and had some awesome times but now it’s time to move on.

New year. New journey. I’m ready!

Missy betta WERK!

This post was originally for Life&Style but since I’m not working this weekend, I decided to post it here.

In the immortal words of Britney Spears, “you better work b***h!” Missy Elliot, who has been flying under the radar since her last studio album in 2005, has stepped back into the spotlight – and she looks AMAZING!

After performing at Alexander Wang’s H&M Collection launch in New York City on Oct. 16, the rapper and producer shared this photo on Twitter:

Is butter a carb? While Missy works out, we’ll be over here with our Kalteen bars.

In 2011, Missy revealed to People that she was battling Graves’ disease, an autoimmune illness that affects the thyroid. “You live with it for the rest of your life.”

From the looks of it, she seems to be doing quite well!

Ferguson: Ebony’s coverage

I was scrolling through Instagram and saw these amazing videos. I haven’t seen any other outlets cover Ferguson the way that Ebony has. Seeing this makes me both inspired and angry.

I am inspired by the passionate display of people coming together for justice. I am angered because I have to go to the internet to find people who really care. Nobody IRL wants to talk about it because it makes them uncomfortable.

I need more black friends.

Ronin Pro Wrestling

There are some things you plan for and other things that just happen.  Last night as I walked into the Miami Airport Convention Center, I arrived with the assumption that I would just be working as background crew for SFL-TV.

With no one else from the crew around yet, I was thrown into the world of backstage interviewing for Ronin Pro Wrestling. I met with the organizer Mike Broder who introduced me to some other people. One of those people asked “Are you comfortable on camera?” I responded, “hell yeah!” The rest is history, so to speak.
