Quarantine Chronicles: Throwback to Dauphin Island, Alabama

Sweet home Alabama!! Here’s an easy breezy read for you. I talk a lot a crap about Alabama, but in all actuality, the state has beautiful hidden gems. I remember when I announced that I was moving to Alabama, most responses alluded to racism, lynching etc. I’m grateful such talk did not dissuade me becauseContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Throwback to Dauphin Island, Alabama”

Quarantine Chronicles: Conversations With A Friend

Relationships are a sensitive subject for me. I find relationships to be extremely important in my life. When it comes to family, they pretty much are my lifeline. As far as romantic relationships, I’ve only had one boyfriend in my adult life. It technically only lasted a couple months. But we had a complicated friendshipContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Conversations With A Friend”

Quarantine Chronicles: Journey To The Past

Singing “Journey to the paaaaast“. Such an awesome song from an awesome movie; Dreamwork’s Anastacia. Since being home, I have taken it upon myself to de-clutter the entire house, from the bottom up. In doing so, I have found myself through a portal to a past life. An escape from the statistics being fed byContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Journey To The Past”

Quarantine Chronicles: Cooking to bridge cultures

So, we’re still staying at home. Insert unenthusiastic yay! While I’ve been at home I’ve been cooking more than ever. Mostly because I can’t afford to occasionally order from DoorDash or GrubHub. I can’t even be mad because it’s been great for my diet and body. I adopted a flexitarian diet which basically means majorityContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Cooking to bridge cultures”

Quarantine Chronicles: Community

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I ran away to Atlanta for the sake of my sanity. I was struggling mentally and spiritually while living alone during the Stay At Home Order in Michigan. Not only was I missing face to face interaction, I felt like my purpose had been taken away fromContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Community”

Quarantine Chronicles: Future Plans

Ah, future plans. Another grammatical faux pas; redundancy. But I had to keep the consistencies in the post titles of this series. So what does the future hold? Are everyday people making actual plans these days? I understand the lack of desire to not, but I hope so. This current situation is temporary. Everyone shouldContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Future Plans”

Quarantine Chronicles: Present Plans

Present plans…a bit of an oxymoron isn’t it? By nature I am an explorer. I’ve always been curious, always been adventurous, always been a bit of a busy body. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve also become a homebody, can be a bit of couch potato; a loner. I’ve realized that I’m the type of personContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Present Plans”

2020 Vision (I know, such a predictable title)

Two months completed in 2020 and MY! OH!! MY!!! 2020 was a rough start! Literally walked into the new year fighting off bronchitis with the threat of homelessness in sight. The awareness of me being in my late twenties and single didn’t help my mental state either. Oh and I had been technically unemployed forContinue reading “2020 Vision (I know, such a predictable title)”

A Stay At Callaway Gardens

70 degree weather in December?! Thank God I went south for the winter! I had two weeks of brilliant weather in the 60s and 70s in Georgia. Unfortunately, I caught the flu a day after I arrived, AND then got bronchitis. At this moment I’m still battling the bronchitis. After Christmas, my family and IContinue reading “A Stay At Callaway Gardens”

The Harvest.

My church had a meet up at Long Family Orchard, Farm & Cider Mill in Commerce, Michigan. One of our pastors boasted that they have the best donuts ever! Having visited several orchards in the metro Detroit area for the past three years and tasted some gosh darn good donuts, I was highly intrigued. VisitingContinue reading “The Harvest.”
