Voicing your opinion is something that can go either good or bad because it all depends on how you go approaching the situation. Some people like myself can only get things off my chest by writing and others can go by talking. I write because I'll remember what I have to say.
When you voice your opinion some people could take it the wrong way so you have to always be appropriate and respectful at all times. There's no need to jump to conclusions, be sarcastic and disrespectful because you dislike what someone has to say. At the end of the day if they're being honest with you respect them enough for that.
Sometimes writing what you have to say is best because you have your thoughts together, you know what you're going to say in order and now that you have everything written down you can proceed without any mishaps. If you know that you'll forget to say something when you need to have a talk, it is best that you write it down.
In addition, don't voice an opinion because you want be malicious and come off as the big and bad person. That's not going to get you anywhere but shut down and hypothetically speaking a slap in the face because the opinion could turn into a debate.
Understand how you feel, say how you fell and be real about how you feel. Last but not least, NEVER be afraid to voice how you feel. Nobody can get mad at you for keeping it real with them.

Take a look at the difference of each country and tell me what you think. I'm sure a lot of us who are in school can relate to how expensive school is. Tuition, loans and book fees are HIGHLY expensive. In addition, the refund check is a great set up to fake it until you make it lol. I can't even lie. What I still don't understand is why do we have to pay for college? I mean I guess the money is to keep the college looking good but the looks of the building isn't going to help us learn easier.
Why should we have to pay to learn? In the end we end up in debt and when we get our "dream job" after graduation from college we're paying off debts. Who wants to do that? I say that we shouldn't pay for school. Learning new information each day is to help us in the long run. So we're paying you to live out our long term dreams? That's what's mind blowing to me. I'm sure many of us can agree. Paying for school can be such a drag and it can kill our pockets ridiculously.
If school was free many people who did drop out probably would have stayed in school. To name two people who dropped out of college Bill Gates and Steve Jobs and look where that took them. School ain't for everybody but the stress of paying for school makes people drop out.
Would you still go to school if you didn't have to pay?
If you're a colleg drop out and the rules of finances changed for school, would you go back?
A lot of women will complain about finding someone who is real, meets their standards and someone who is ALL for them. There is nothing wrong with that but a lot of the standards that women want are materialistic. Some of them want a man who approaches them with respect but checks out what kind of shoes, belt and car he has before listening to what he has to say to them.
Personally, I'm not going to talk to a man who yells "yo", "shawty with the bald head", "wassup yo" and etc. There's a way to approach someone and gather thier attention without yelling. Women aren't dogs, they're human. Back to the topic, women want respect, time and loyalty (if the talking ever goes that far, that is). When a man is willing to give them that, they become scared and think they want more. That's understandable but ALL men aren't the same. That's a FACT!.
All in all, don't say ask for something that you aren't willing to handle. If you can't handle it stay to yourself until you can. A man could ask a woman for her name, have a good conversation and he will still get the "stank face". Why? He took the time out to talk to you because he's interested. There's NOTHING wrong with interest but there's something wrong when no one is being honest and establishing an understanding in the beginning of things.
Here's the thing, if you want a good man PUT YOUR PRIDE ASIDE! Pride will leave you lonely to become a cat lady. A lot of these women don't take a chance because they have too much baggage and most of the time they want a man to deal with it. No man is going to do that but if he is interested and wants that time give him a chance to know the real you and not the baggage you bring.
If you haven't seen Meek's new video, you should check it out. I'm so used to seeing Meek and Nicki together that the affection did not surprise but I will say that you can see the love they have for each other which makes this video a classic. This is a video you can never forget.
Meek and Nicki were very comfort with one and another and it was almost like watching their day to day life together. They obviously couldn't keep their eyes off one another in the video. OBVIOUSLY!!! Lol but the song is okay and the video is much better. The video makes he song better. I wasn't crazy about the song but watching the video made me vibe to it more.
You can watch "All Eyes On You" below!
What do you think about the video?
How do you feel about the song?
The things that do not serve us any good or helps us grow are things we HAVE to let go of. There are things that causes us to be negative and knocks off our square because we let it and because of their energy. Energy is contagious. Good, bad and even ugly energy.
I've experienced that many of times. You really don't know how much you've changed unless someone else notices it. Know how you operate and think about the people you're around. Ask yourself are they changing you, are they influencing you, how are the benefiting you to be better? If someone, or something isn't build you up get rid of it.
Getting rid of the bad is supposed to be kept away and to remain left alone. As soon as you bring it back in your life it can corrupt you worst than it did before.The people we deal with says a lot about who we are.
Word of advice: Once it's no good, fall back and stay back. Staying back leads to something much better and opens doors for you when you focus on yourself. Also when you do for yourself. Nobody has you like you have yourself.

I'm not going to get into the situation that happened between the two because of the Confederate flag. The flag should have been taken down because everybody should live in a place where they can be equal and get along. .
Now, you have the Black Panthers and Ku Klux Klan. Of course I'm going to support the Black Panthers because I'm black, I love being black and I love the culture in which I come from. That's something I stand by. What I have a problem with is that we are separated because of a color, "Black Power" and "White Power".
We as blacks will get mad for a majority of whites being racist towards us because of what they assume about us. A lot these whites wouldn't think the way they do if it wasn't for how they were raised. In addition, a lot blacks wouldn't think all whites aren't at at ease because of us because of how we were raised and the things we were taught. There are many assumptions that we were told about each other to each other.
The moment we get upset about a white person's opinion towards us, we begin to hate them and the moment we have that hate is the moment we begin to be racist. We also give them a reason for them to think the way they do about us. We always have to react with violence destroying what we built. We can't preach about sticking together within the black community but being upset with another community. I don't agree with a lot of the things that have been going on but if we're going to spread love, wellness, togetherness, love etc. we have to let it be collectively.
I've been hearing about this song "Cheerleader" by OMI. The first time I heard it was on a video of the "dontjudgechallenge. There's always a new challenge every time I look up. Back to the topic ... I only heard the chorus so I thought I'd actually take a chance and listen to the lyrics.
The lyrics are cute and the chorus is catchy. I actually like the song. If a guy wanted to be cute with his lovely lady, he would definitely get a pass. If you haven't checked out the song or video, click the link below!

Social Media is for everybody to say what they, how they want to say it and whoever sees it doesn't matter. Unfortunately, that's not what it was actually used for. Social Media was used to network and keep in touch with family or friends that are distant from us. These days that is leas of the case. Let's use Instagram fad an example.
Instagram is used to post pictures, notes, business inquires, videos, and etc. the list is long for what is can be used for. What's mind boggling is that at a certain time you can a ritually differentiate what will be posted at certain times. In the morning/afternoon everything is business. During the evening/late night hours everybody is "fishing" for a gf/bf, posting emotional quotes and/or posting sexual graphic pictures with a caption saying "mood".
Everything I said up top is happening every day on Instagram. I will admit I can be vulgar with language but by all means it's to be direct on the points I make and my to offend anyone. A lot of the things we see online aren't helping us but making us slaves to keeping our heads on social media. If anything we should be using social media for our talents. We all have gifts to share but what people do is follow the stupidity that is getting people the fame they want from stupid actions.
My best friend and I had a talk about what people do for fame and it's all stupid. She and I both said and I quote, "I'm not going to do anything stupid just to make a come up". I can understand if you are going to be funny but don't be stupid. In addition, social media should also be used to open our kind to different opportunities. We need to lift on another up and not feed into the bullshit.
In conclusion, be better than what you see online. Don't be a follow. Always be a leader!!!

Though this is the ending day for the project, you should still take what people are going through in consideration. What you're going through is not bigger than what anyone else's problem.. People go through problems every day. That's why people should not judge each other. People deal with different insecurities each day. Whoever you know that is dealing with something be there for them as much as you can.
Give them a call, send a heartfelt text, give them a shoutout on social media or send them a pic of you smiling to brighten their day. Anything is possible. Never think your love goes unnoticed.
If you can't be there with them physically, be sure to keep them in your prayers 🙏🏾. I want to thank my little sister Tia for telling me about this project. I'm glad I could share this with you all.
Praise God and Stay Humble 💯
