So fam. We’ve reached the end of 2015 (well almost…this is my last blog of the year). Most of the holiday chaos has subsided and now you have time to breathe ( deep breath in, deep breath out) and reflect on the things that happened this year. And you know where that train of thought leads to! That’s right, it’s goal setting time!
This is the month of gift giving. For many of us, material gifts are top of mind. Shoot, even thinking when I was trying to drum up a topic for this week, I could have easily penned a blog about the best unique Greek online vendors to patron. Now that I think about that, I might save that for a later post, however, that’s not what’s sitting on my heart.
The end of the year is usually reserved for deep reflection, preparation and either an abundance of regret and or gratefulness. With 2015 being the whirlwind that’s it’s been, child, some of us are still wondering how we’re still standing. Go ahead and insert a church dip and a “BUT GOD…” shout here.
Let me just say, every time I am having a writer’s block, Black Twitter swoops in like the OG Superhero it is and gives me something intriguing to talk about. Shout out one time to the #StayMadAbby hashtag. Reading these stories and scrolling through your pictures have been absolutely amazing. Now, let’s get into Ms.Abigail Fisher, Supreme Court Justice Scalia and the beloved affirmative action debate. If you’re not familiar with this case, here are some awesome links to catch you up in detail:
So we’re back at it with another web-series Role Call installment. For those of yall who don’t know, I am a black web-series fanatic! In addition to celebrating shows that tell great, relateable narratives, it’s also pretty dope that we get to spotlight some of the NPHC members who are putting their acting chops to work! So far, we’ve covered some of our D9 fam from the Black & Sexy TV network, BOATV & Black Boots, and now we’re shedding some much needed light on 2KLifeTv’s award winning show, the Close Friends web series. I’m not about that Netflix & Chill life, but I will Youtube & Chit Chat about this twisted tale of a friendship these folks have within their story lines.
