March 8th was International Women’s Day. I wasn’t blogging then, so I didn’t have the opportunity to post about the dope-ass women in my life. So, this post is dedicated to them.
No matter what, every female should have that one woman in their life that they can be unapologetically themselves with. I’m lucky to have picked up a few friends along my journey in life who I can be that with. These women all have their own wonderful strengths about them. I see them doing their damn thing and it makes me happy to know that I get to call them framily.
Just in case y’all didn’t know:
Ain’t nobody f*cking with my clique, clique, clique, clique, clique
Ain’t nobody fresher than my muthaf*ckin’ clique, clique, clique, clique, clique
As I look around, they don’t do it like my clique, clique, clique, clique, clique
Now that we got that out of the way…
Can I talk to y’all for a minute
Lemme talk to y’all for a minute
Just gimme a minute of ya time baby — I don’t want much
Lemme talk to these, uhh
Guess who’s bizack!
After a short hiatus, I’m back at it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
You’re far too kind.
It feels wonderful, don’t you agree?
I’ve never always had a green thumb. I remember in middle school I was supposed to see how different light sources affected the growth of plants. I had everything setup; the same type of pots, the same type and number of seeds, the same amount of soil, and I watered the seeds with the same amount of water from the same source. Let’s just say the fact that I was creative saved me because the actual experiment yielded zero results. Nothing grew. Out of six pots that each had two seeds, not one grew. Even though I had nothing to present, my poster and written study gave me an A for that project.
Fast forward to today. I have about 20 or so plants growing in my apartment. I don’t know what it is about plants but, I love taking care of them. My dream house includes have a yard big enough to grow vegetables, herbs, and fruits in the back and flowers in the front. But, until then, I’m working with the small that I have in my barely 1000 sqft apartment.
Now, out of my 20 or so plants, there was a lily I bought 2 years ago. I kept the lily on my balcony and it flourished beautifully. As the hot months started to turn cold, the lily died. I wanted to try and save it so, I brought it inside and attempted to nurture it back to health. Throughout the 2 years I watched the lily sprout new plants but, it could never fully bloom to a flower.
