I considered joining #NaBloPoMo2019, and then I thought for a minute about the reality of writing 30 posts that 2 people would click on, and was overcome with ennui

Or 3! I'd definitely click if each post had a cat photo like this. :)

I am participating in #NaBloPoMo2019 and will be blogging daily for the month of November. Let me know if you are blogging daily this month as well.

If everyone would just obey the proper protocols, there are no mixed signals. Pretty simple: the man pays no matter what. It doesn't mean anything. It's just the assigned role.

Proper protocols? Assigned role? Assigned... by who?

It’s 2019. Do whatever you need to feel safe and comfortable when dating.

The whites - and I can't stress this enough - are AT IT Again

Oof. I scrolled back a day in their timeline and they responded to a kid's blackface costume with "no different than anyone else dressing up as a character."

It seems to be socially acceptable to watch videos on your phone with the sound turned on in public places like restaurants and cafes in Memphis. I've seen *so many* people of all ages here doing it, and nobody seems to complain. Is this a regional thing?

Yay, gee-FM! I'm doing it this year as well. I saw in Asha's comments that the OG herself, Eden Kennedy, is participating this year.

I saw that! I look forward to the vlogs.

You should do it too!


I just made a very spur-of-the-moment decision to take a swing at NaBloPoMo. My posts are more likely to be mediocre than brilliant, but it's still fun!

National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo)

Awesome! Maybe I'll give it another shot. I've definitely not been writing as much as I'd like to and it's been fun the times I've tried it before.

The Facebook News Feed looks pretty nice when you unfollow (not un-friend) posts from people and groups.

Trying to get her to watch tv like a normal kid but nooooo it’s all “let’s go outside”, “let’s run around”, let’s play” ?

Ugh, kids these days and their trees.
