On My Own

Nothing prepared me for college!  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  After high school, I attended the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR.  This experience should have been one of the best experiencing of my life, and it was, but it was also one of the darkest!  I have made reference to and alluded to this throughout the […]

Can You Hear My Scream?

If you have never been in the grips of something that you didn’t want to be, and tried everything in your power to get free but couldn’t, you can’t understand the pain and frustration that one experiences.  Sometimes we can be so insensitive to the things people are experiencing because it is not our “thing”.  […]

Exposed

  I have, at least in my opinion, have had a rather unique weakness, and that is the ability to be transparent about certain perspectives of my life. Most people that know me personally, and have had some interaction with me, know that I have a hard time “faking” certain things. I have often found […]

Innocent Eyes Gone Bad

  My dad always seemed to have my brother and I up early on some Saturdays, hustling trying to “make that cheese!!!”   Some of you know what I’m talking about! Even though daddy worked full time, he had his hustle going to that oftentimes caused me and my brother to miss some episodes of the […]
