In the last few years, African American natural hair has been celebrated for its beauty and stylish versatility. Women who have dedicated their entire lives to man-made chemicals and bone-straight hair, have abandoned their chic Euro look and have embraced a more all natural Afro chic style.

This is my shit, as I write this late-ass paper (Qualitative studies)! Hope that baby stay sleep for at least another hour so I can get it done.Then I’m taking him to the doctor, and back to this late ass paper again. The wonderful life of motherhood, wiferyhood, and doctoratehood rolled into one.
But a B*tch is Super Turned Up!
Don’t you get tired of hearing that old phrase of I’m a grown ass man or I’m a grown ass woman? It’s starting to plague society like that ridiculous Television show Scandal is doing our TV air waves! I mean essentially if you are as grown as you say you are, you should not have to yell it out like a rambunctious child.
The first time I heard this phrase was from a crack head in the parking lot of Stater Bro’s because I failed to give her enough change for a snack at Jack -N- Box, so she say! The crack head became irate when I inquired about the purpose she needed two dollars. She responded “do you got it or not? Don’t be questioning me about no damn two dollars; I’m a grown ass woman!” Now if you know me, you know that I looked at her like you done lost your crack headed azz mind talking to me like that after I just gave you a dollar fifty of my hard earned money. I told her mam, I’m giving you this money because I’m a man of God first and I would want somebody to help me if I was hungry. But let’s be real, you on that powder! I know because I grew up with a crack head that once stole my Starter coat and wore it all summer then sold it for a 10 dollar rock!
Long story short, I informed her that true grownups don’t broadcast it, they show it, they live it, they about it. Growing up is a process not a race. If it were that simple, we’d all be track stars. So if you’re one of those people that like to inform us all that you are grown because you pay 2 bills, please do some self-reflection and GET REAL!!@
Back in the day, but not that long ago,
I was scammed multiple times by marketing schemes and was caught off guard with the gravity of persuasiveness within the article’s content. Expert internet marketers pay professionals to write premium content that can seduce a rigid virgin out of her panties after reading one or two paragraphs. Then after spending the money you’re screwed with smelly stained drawers and a curious look on your face. They make so many promises and make them sound soooooo great, and some, including me, just fall for it every time.
When I was first getting to feel my way around the internet in college, my motto was: fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me again, maybe third time is a charm! It sounded like some kind of gambling addiction. I knew there was a significant risk in marketing opportunities, but I always felt like the next time would be the one. Of course you live and you learn from your mistakes, and as you can tell I was an idiot on many occasions. I was single, in college, and could do what I wanted so throwing away a little money here and there was no big deal.
However, 31 years old, a baby, a husband, a doctorate program, and thousands of miles away from the republican and female oppressive state of Texas, there is no way in hell on earth I will throw away any money on these ratchet azz scams. And when someone says something is free, you better believe you will be giving up something whether it be an email address, a date of birth, your name, SOMETHING. Nothing is ever free.

LOL!!! Oh come on!! You know its funny! I am the last person to make light of any situation involving substance abuse because I have seen how drugs have destroyed people’s lives. There is nothing funny about shooting something foreign into your body for a short-lived high. When I found this poster on Facebook, I just couldn’t stop laughing. My career has always placed me in the center of substance abuse cases and I understand that you can only do so much and move on because that is the nature of drug life. Even with the ones you love, you have to say a prayer and live your own life because they are not the same person they were before the addiction. Addicts are for themselves by themselves. Real Talk.
