About Me: I’m Very Meh About the Holidays

I know I’ve been awful about updating the blog these last few days, but I’ve been suffering from some major medical and personal malfunctions, but things are picking up. I’m on all of the drugs and I finally have the bravery and set of mind to write this post. So, the holidays. Here’s something a…

Keeping It Current: From Nov 18th-20th 2015

So much is happening right now that I just want to quickly address it. There’s really nothing new I personally want to add to these incidents, but I do think they are worth noting. So, here’s what’s been going on for the last 3 days. Some European countries are starting to close their borders to…

A Little Advice: How to Bake Healthier (Part 4: Flair)

Welcome to my fourth and final segment of “How to Bake Healthier.” You made it! In this last part, I will discuss what I call “flair.” Now, I personally feel like this is the most important part when it comes to baking because this is where all of the flavor in a baked dish comes…

Keeping It Current: Yola

Man, my posts can’t be anymore cheerful these days. Apparently this is just that time of year for terrorism and heinous acts of hatred. Let’s see if this incident will make it to the American public. Let’s see if there will be a Nigerian flag filter. Let’s see if we get a nice hashtag like…

Keeping It Current: Post-Paris Rant

I’m writing this post out of aggravation towards the so-called “good Christians” of America who absolutely refuse to take in and accept any refugees. The same supposed God-loving senators and congressmen who are openly denying these people a safe retreat. The same people who are saying, “We’ll accept our fellow Christians, but everyone else can…

About Me: I Love Pie

I don’t know what it is, but pie is my all time favorite desserts. If I could marry it, I would. In fact, I was adamant about serving pie all throughout my wedding. I had mini Jamaican patties (which are like the island’s version of an empanada) during cocktail hour, three different pies for the…

4 Things People Should Stop Doing After A Terrorist Attack

So, due to the current status of the globe, I’ve noticed another drastic rise in anti-Muslim beliefs and propaganda. This shit is being posted everywhere, and I am getting very annoyed. It’s causing more and more ignorant and intolerant people to lash out towards those who practice Islam and other Asian originated religions. People of…

About Me: Pet Peeves

**WARNING: This is just a long-winded list of everything that gets on my nerves. Proceed with caution because I was starting to get all in my feelings as I kept on writing. The rage was real. I’m not even going to edit this.** As I’m starting to feel a drastic increase of holiday cheer, it…

Keeping It “Current”: Garissa University

So, after the terrorist attacks on Beirut and Paris, this one news story that covered the attack on Garissa University has been popping up repeatedly on my Facebook news feed. It is a heartbreaking story about how the most violent branch of al-Qaeda called al-Shabaab, which is known for terrorizing East African countries, launched an…

Keeping It Current: Beirut

So, apparently one major act of terrorism a week isn’t enough. On Thursday, on the same side of the globe in Lebanon, two suicide bombers decided to detonate themselves in the southern part of Beirut, in a predominately Shia area (a third bomber’s body was found, but never detonated). The attack took place during the…

Keeping It Current: Paris

I’m just going to keep this short. My heart can’t handle unnecessary violence and random acts of terrorism. When I first started to read about this incident, I felt like I was just falling deeper and deeper into this black hole of feelings. With every personal interview, each one claiming it to be a “blood…
