Monday Mayhem – Mutilating the Patriarchy

Hello loves, I woke up this morning and wanted to write you a letter about advocacy. What is advocacy all about anyway? Why should we even do it? What does it matter? And where in the crap do we find daily motivation to keep going in 2018? Merriam-Webster defines mayhem as, “willful, permanent, crippling mutilation”….

Monday Mayhem – Hold the excuses

I don’t have time. I don’t have the answers. I don’t have the education. I don’t have the training. I don’t know the definition. No one will believe me. No one will take me seriously. I am too young. I am too old. Someone else is already doing that, I am just so sure. People…

Eff Sh*t Up Friday – I desire a world…

I mean…look at what the right wing is doing to Emma Gonzalez for speaking out against gun violence. Her male counterparts aren’t getting nearly the amount of grief that she is. Engaging in…

Eff Sh*t Up Friday – Justice

I feel greedy. I feel covetous. I feel hungry. I desire equality. I desire change. I desire collaboration. I feel passionate. I feel fury. I feel obsessive. I crave a voice. I crave a choice. I crave acknowledgement. I do not want women to be hung for their decisions like this man does. I do…

Monday Mayhem: Out of the mouths of babes

I have been getting some profound messages a lot lately: It is not the first step you take, but the next step you take that gets you where you are going. The brick walls aren’t meant to make you give up, they are meant to make you realize how bad you want something. Whatever it…
