In September it will be a year since I’ve resigned from my full-time, salaried corporate job. While I’m freelancing and doing other things now and my pay fluctuates I don’t regret my decision. Why? Imagine walking into a place everyday that you couldn’t escape because it was your means of survival. You get a sick feeling each and every time you arrive, yet you stick around hoping it’ll change. Could it be workplace depression? Is your job actually a trigger? Is this possible?
I’m writing this with a heavy heart. News just broke that rapper Nipsey Hussle, 33, was gunned down outside of his store today. Gunned down in broad daylight.

You may be wondering, what does Black Friday have to do with Chaotic Critic. Well, as someone that encourages you to be your best self by sharing my personal experiences, that encompasses all aspects of life. That includes impulsive spending.
Just a year after giving birth to a daughter, Serena Williams rallied her way back to the finals of the U.S. Open.

Is Prince Harry getting married really the cause of an impromptu blog post? HELL YEAH?! Like most people I checked my social media this morning (Instagram in particular) and I saw that Harry had indeed proposed to his girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle. Why am I so excited? Oh, I don’t know. I’ve only gushed over Harry from how handsome he is to his infectious personality. Out of all the royalty, he’s definitely my fav. He’s officially off the market with his Spring 2018 wedding on the way.
It has been a whirlwind in the media with politics. The threats against other countries, the fight for healthcare, the rallies dividing citizens further a part, and most importantly the montage of tweets from the POTUS. I have a platform where I can share my thoughts. The joy of freedom of speech. I may be a football fan, but first and foremost I am a black woman in the United States of America. I AM BLACK!
