mi lugar secreto




#ITooAmHarvard is a project by Black students at Harvard to speak out about the racism that they experience in their daily lives as students. It will also be a play.

Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous. 

I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. 

That last woman looks like Antonia Thomas.

These women are goddesses.

The reality is a happily single person is just as happy as a happily married person. Focus on happy, not status. You’re too excellent to be worried about spending your life alone. Several men aren’t thinking about marriage, but there are several who are. That’s no concern of yours. Your concern should be you. I can’t stress enough that we pay attention to you when you pay attention to you. A woman’s greatest assets and attributes are revealed when she’s on her own journey of self-discovery. At your very best, you will attract the exact person intended for you. No gimmicks required. So sit back. Relax. Have some wine. Get to know you. Enjoy life and see what it brings. Good things are happening. Be a part of those things. Be fulfilled without a full calendar and your cell phone ringing. Eat out alone. Enjoy a movie by yourself. That’s how men find you…when you find you. It’s no wonder “me” comes before “men.” In order to secure the latter, you must secure the aforementioned.

I have been preaching this from a very young age and still today, I will live and die by this.

I love to see children who are so delicate and gentle with animals.  It warms my heart amidst a sea of brats pulling cats’ tails and getting whacked.


I love how she reaches up on her tippy toes to snuggle into his shoulder.

Can I just say how much I love the guy who writes the posts for the Welcome To Nightvale Facebook page?
