The SMASH, Vol. I

So I’ll be going home to North Carolina on Friday. I haven’t been in a while, but after speaking to a friend from way back when via text, the idea popped in my head to create a playlist. And by playlist, I mean songs to bring out your inner hooch. We’re all grown here, right?

Check it out! Everything on this list isn’t for everybody and last minute, I DID add R. Kelly and Beyoncé (Speechless). You’ll be alright. Adjust the list as you need. It’s 58 songs deep, 4.3 hours of ‘fun’ if that’s what you’re downloading it for.

Hopefully you’ll get to make good use of it!



You’re cut from entirely different cloths and patterns. Sagittarius is neon polka-dot on stretch Lycra; Cancer is Burberry plaid on Swiss wool. You’ll never be a match that makes sense to observers—which is why Cancer Tom Cruise and Sagittarius Katie Holmes are such a tabloid target. Is it true love, a train wreck, or a little bit of both? Let’s examine. Domestic Cancer rules home, heart and family, and holds his loved ones in his vest pocket. Sagittarius is the restless world traveler who craves freedom and adventure. Sag can either feel smothered or totally nurtured by Cancer. The Crab loves to provide every security for his sweetie, and it’s a relief to the Archer to come home to a hot meal, a drawn bath, an adoringly attentive partner. The trouble starts when Sagittarius stops coming home. Sagittarius needs sunlight, air and wide open spaces. Cancer keeps the shades drawn and burrows into his metaphorical Crab shell. When Sagittarius neglects Cancer’s need for togetherness, starts hanging out with a rowdy crew of rebels, or traipses the globe alone, Cancer’s insecurities are rankled. You have fierce tempers, and the combustion of Cancer’s moodiness and Sag’s anger can be downright destructive. What the Crab must realize is that a pretty bird in a cage will soon fly the coop—at least, if the bird is a Sag. He must open the windows and trust Sagittarius to come back to the nest, a real act of faith. Your strong sexual chemistry sweetens the pot, but you’ll need to adapt to each other’s rhythms through hard work and keen listening.

And this will NEVER happen again. So much truth in this. I don’t care what anyone says; you don’t have to necessarily govern yourself according to your zodiac sign but you best believe that SOME of your personality traits are governed by your sign. Not every _____ (insert whatever sign here) will be able to be read by a list but a lot of the shit…especially matters of compatibility…are true.

I’ve dated a couple Sag folks. And they ALL were the exact same. Very minimal differences. Pass judgment if you must but again, I’ll never date another Sag. Y’all can have that. < / read >


Imperfectly Perfect

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve actually sat down and written a personal blog. Writing on the blog is usually a release for me, rather than something I make it a point to do on a daily basis. Nonetheless it’s 3:09am, I’m trying to figure out the rest of December, and I feel the need to drop a little word vomit…you know, just to relax a bit.



God is truly a funny Man, for REAL!

If you’ve been reading my blog at, you’ll know that I have been on a quest for my purpose since about week two in my juice fast. Although I always knew that I had a purpose of some sort to fulfill, it was not really something I set out to do while fasting.
