I wrote this blog a few years back at my sister site Spot86 that I wanted to share with you guys. Life is a beautiful thing. One thing is for sure, nothing is perfect and nothing is guaranteed. So many things can happen, so many things can change. With that being said, why do we make things difficult by having so many expectations? Are you still waiting for that guy that keeps playing games to change? Do you wonder why that one friend is never truly excited for you? Does frustration take over you the minute you think about how hard your new job or school has been? Are you hard on a family member because they are not living up to your expectations? If any of this is the case, you are in essence, setting yourself up for disappointment. The truth is; having too many expectations is not that great.
Hello June! This month has been super exciting for me so far, from vacations, to attending BBQ’s and completing my third novel, I must say that I’m having a great time!

Last week it was reported that singer and Love and Hip-hop Hollywood star, Teairra Mari’s (ex?) boyfriend released a sex tape for the world to see, without her consent. Now since this story has dropped, there have been many twists and turns that I refuse to get into (it’s just too messy in my opinion). Instead, I’d like to focus on a much larger and sadly common issue – revenge porn. It’s no secret that we live in a digital age, we have so many things at our fingertips; that type of freedom is actually pretty liberating if you ask me. But where there is good, there’s also bad! I think it’s safe to say that revenge porn is a prime example of what’s not so good about the internet.
