“Depression is your avatar telling you its tired of being the character you are trying to play” — Jimmy Carrey
Depression is a natural part of existing. We all will encounter some type of depression in our lifetime. Depression is healthy but how you cope and deal with depression can become unhealthy.
Why are you depressed? What is the reasoning for your depression? It's odd to question yourself this but it important to understand why are you in the depressive state that you are in. …
You are assigned a significant project at work that tests every part of your college degree and existence. You like a challenge, but why now? Will you rise to the occasion, or will you fail miserably? Your anxiety thinks about all the ways you could fail instead of ways to succeed.
Anxiety is spiraling thoughts about the future that only make sense in your mind. It makes you feel that you have been put in a corner to fend for yourself. The only option you have is to shut out the outside world.
What if I told you the world…
Kid Cudi wore a floral print dress for an SNL performance over the weekend, and there were mixed reviews on Twitter.
The responses were surface level. A black man in a dress on SNL? Why would Kid Cudi “humiliate” his self in such a way?
Other opinions were that the dress was ugly, then others reflected on what people think men should be wearing.
The positive responses were better, as these were people that were minding their damn business.
Here are three reasons why Kid Cudi wearing a dress during his SNL performance is none of your damn business.
How to achieve a perfect credit score.
The average person does not know what their fico credit score consists of. There are myths that suggest that no debt equates to good credit but that is not always the case. There are various credit myths that can be misleading when starting your credit clean-up journey. In this article, I will review what your fico score consists of and how to create a plan to correct it.
Do you pay all of your bills on time every single time?
One late payment can make your fico score drop 20–100 points. Your one-time…

I want to argue that reading articles are more entertaining than watching them play out in a video. When watching the video, you are limited in what you see and how your brain displays images in your head. You see what you are going to be watching instead of having it open to your interpretation. An article that goes into detail makes its possibilities endless because you are left with interpreting what you read in the way that you want.
When writing, everything does not always need context, but it is left for…
Loving people in the way they should be loved.
Each time I think of love taken for granted, I think of Diddy Sean Combs rapper and mogul. Im sure you’re reading this sideways. What on earth is this article referencing? I am referencing Sean Combs’s long-time lover and best friend, Kim Porter.
Kim Porter died of pneumonia at just the age of 47 years old in 2018. Sean was devastated. She was young, and her death was just unexpected. He made an Instagram commiserating her death. …
2020 was for the books when it comes to financial literacy and my credit repair journey. I was forced to add value to my life when California went into complete lockdown. I honestly had no choice but to reflect on things I needed to improve and force myself to execute.
My credit was terrible, and I procrastinated for years on what I would do to fix it. I don’t know what took me so long — my silly excuse what that I didn’t have time or that I needed to hire someone.
Well, in 2020, I had nothing but time…
This pandemic has forced us to find how to thrive financially on the internet. It has inspired podcast, new websites, and even blogs. We want a successful blog, but you must keep your readers’ interests in mind to do so.
My writing interest has probed a fascination with critiquing random blogs I come across. I click on a link to a new blog and ask myself the same questions each time. Would I go back to this website to read more articles? If yes, I subscribe to their newsletter. If the answer is no, I’ll ask myself why.
As we get older, different light switches turn on. It is often about where we are in life, our upbringing, and sometimes our cultural background. There is no set time when it happens; you will just wake up to a slap to the face.
I was an island girl that grew in Hawaii with other people of color that weren’t black. You would think it would be similar, but culturally it is still very different. My experiences are different because I am a black woman.
At 19 years old working in retail, I knew I wanted to be more than…
At 30, I wanted to buy the home of my dreams, but with what credit? I spent the majority of my 20s spending frivolously and missing bill payments. As you can imagine, my credit was horrible. I researched what I needed for a healthy credit journey; the changes were simple, but my mindset needed to be adjusted.
There was a flip of a switch as I reached the age of 30. I had fun in my 20s, but my credit suffered; my excuse was that I didn’t know any better. I was fortunate enough to make it by without the…
Every writer writes about subjects that make them feel good. My subjects are self-help, personal finance, and a sprinkle of entrepreneurship for the culture.
