I thought it would be fun to keep track of the things I currently like (from within a period of a few months...probably about 3-5, that's usually how long my tastes/preferences last). I like to notice how art/pop culture influences me and how I shift over the months in terms of what I really enjoy.
If anything is overdue, it’s definitely something like this. Been waiting to blog about my own experiences and education about mental health, both of which really took shape this year. Will do that as soon as I’m ready. Thank you for the post and initiating the discussion, Ms. Anarfi.

Maybe it's just me, but I think a person's 20's are just such an easy period to forget God.

"So you think I'm alone? But being alone's the only way to be When you step outside You spend life fighting for your sanity" I still remember the day I bought the physical CD of The ArchAndroid by Janelle Monáe. Mannn. So I was on a People to People trip (kind of like GYLC, if you've heard of that)...
An image I made for a digital collage assignment -- the one that I was late to submit. Lol. It had to be a narrative of some form. This was the first time ever (ever. ever) I used Photoshop beyond basic adjustments. And I was sweating because I was with some real artsy kids who had done photography since…Read more pulchritude
