I was conflicted on writing this particular story for this week’s column. Most of the columns that I’ve written so far were light and what my interests were. This week’s column is going to be more of a reflection. So where do I begin? Well, my father passed away from lung cancer last summer, a […]
I know that it’s only been a month since school has started, but I’ve been having different emotions about my last year of college. Before school started, I was feeling excited and anxious. But another part of me was feeling a little bit worried. I think it was because after graduation, you worry about real […]
Ah the 90’s. What a great decade to be born in. Even though I was born in 1993, I can still remember certain things that were around that time. The amount of television shows that were around, the fashion, the music. It was great, believe me. But, certain things should just stay in the 90’s. […]
Yeah, the title of this week’s column says it all. I love being a black nerd. Yeah, I like anime, manga, reading and listening to K-pop. Is that a problem? Well, it shouldn’t be. These things make me happy. It may not look like I like those things, but I do. But how and where […]
So as many of you know, I’ve been listening to K-pop since the beginning of this year, and I’m stuck on it like glue. It’s the only type of music I will listen to, for now at least. But, I’ve been a little rusty since the semester started. I never have any time to listen […]
Growing up, my mother has always been my support system. She’s been someone I can turn to if I needed help with anything. I would describe my relationship with her as strong. We care for each other. I admire my mother because she’s been through so much since she’s been in this country. She still […]
Growing up in a religious family was a struggle for me. My mother’s family are Christians, while my father’s family are Catholics. My dad had me baptized as a Catholic before I was one. Every person in my dad’s family are Catholic. I even went to a Catholic school for seven years before switching to […]
Welcome 2016. I can’t believe that it’s finally here. Four years can go by very fast. This time four years ago, I was a senior in high school, preparing myself for college. Now, fast forward to today, and I’m a senior in college, preparing for the real world. Sigh. It’s a hard pill to swallow. […]
I was on Facebook recently, and I spotted an article titled, Does Appreciating Another Culture Mean You Hate Yourself? The writer, who’s a Nigerian-American, like myself, discusses how she finds herself reflecting why she doesn’t appreciate her culture more, like she does with Japanese and Korean culture. She goes on to say that she loves […]
I was in some sort of a rut this week, and I really didn’t know what to write about. I wouldn’t call it writer’s block, but I jotted down what I wanted to write about this week. I’ve mentioned it in one of the first columns I wrote for 2016. I still want to start my […]
Dear Future Self, 2026. 10 years from now, what will you be doing with your life? Where will you be? Growing up, you always liked to think about the future, because you were always so curious. You were curious about how your life is going to turn out. Obviously, no one can predict or see […]
Growing up, making friendships was hard for me. I’ve always been a shy person, so I never really knew how to approach people. During my childhood, I had two friends that lived in the same apartment building as I did. Then, one of those friends moved away, and I considered the other person my friend […]
On last Wednesday’s episode of black-ish titled Hope, the Johnson family tackled the issue of police brutality within the black community. The premise of the episode was after the non-sentencing of a police officer, Andre and Rainbow attempt to teach their kids, especially the twins, Jack and Diane, about police brutality. Andre and Rainbow disagreed […]
For the past week, I’ve been thinking about my plans after graduation. The idea of not finding a job still haunts me, but I’m trying to stay positive. If it’s a small job at the mall, I’ll take it. I don’t mind working in retail, as long as I get some cash to help my […]
When you’ve lost a loved one, you tend to grieve in different ways. When I lost my father in 2014, I really didn’t know how to grieve. I thought about him almost every single day. Imagine losing a parent one month before school starts. You really don’t have time to grieve or reflect on that […]
For people who know me personally, I’m known for staying in my comfort zone. I’ve always been like that growing up. I never really liked trying new things or doing something I’ve never done before. I’ve always played it safe. Even in high school, I wouldn’t try new things or participate in certain activities because […]
