Why Do I Even Try? Nothing Matters Anymore

Sometimes I have to cry out of frustration

Every time when I try to do good 

It’s always a bad obstacle in the way 

Sometimes I feel like giving up is way better 

That’s why I can never get too comfortable when things are going well 

I hate being frustrated 

I hate always trying and feel like I’m not going anywhere 

I hate having everything together 

And it’s still not good enough 

I hate trying to be the good person 

And people don’t appreciate it 

I hate working hard 

And it still gets unrecognized 

I’m fed up 

Then I think about why I stress myself out

God always has my back 

Even when I don’t realize it

The Dream was Good Maybe It’s A Sign

Last night I had an odd dream. I was in some place full of people inside a building. Maybe it was a school or something because it was people my age there. Also, I remember my mom being there too. I heard an old friend say so many good things about me. The only weird thing about it is the fact I heard the person voice without getting a chance to see their face.

It thrown me off because when I turned around I couldn’t figure out the person in the room who was talking to my mom. In a curious way I believe my dream was trying to tell me something. My dreams always do that to me. There is a special message that I have to figure out before it happens.Anyways, the sign in this dream is telling me that an old person in my life is going to show up again. If that’s not the message. Then maybe it’s a friend that I already have talking good about me to someone else besides my mom. You know dreams set up situations to give you a special message. In reality, the situations may turn into a different form than you expect it. Have any of you had a weird or odd dream recently?

Not Enough Time in a Day to Manage

It’s not enough time in a day. Even planning ahead of time seems like it doesn’t work. Maybe I’m not good at time management. How do some of you balance your time in the day? If you don’t know how to manage your time. What are some distractions do you run into? Sometimes I get writer’s block. It happens at the wrong time. Especially when I’m in the mood to post an article for my readers. It’s crazy how I want to write but my ideas don’t always come together like I want them to. I’m sure every writer feels that way sometimes.

Maybe that wastes my time during the day. I’m stuck on focusing on not having my ideas together. When I could just freestyle write. For example, write random posts without having my attention on one thing. I don’t know if that make sense to any of you. Anyways, time flies by in the day when you waste it. Honestly, it’s faster than the time when you’re having fun. Another thing I want to mention is when unexpected plans come up. There are times I don’t mind because I want to get out the house. Other times I feel annoyed because I have blogging work to do. Let me stop complaining here. Here’s a questions for my readers how do you manage your time?

The World We Live In

Why can’t we unite in peace?

Why is hate appreciated more than love?

Why do some ethnicities still fight for respect?

Why do people have to act foolish for attention?

Why is education getting less important?

Why am I afraid for my future children safety?

I feel unsafe in the world we live in…

Things I Learned This Summer 

As summer is coming to an end.  I start reflecting on all the things I did. While sitting there in my thoughts I noticed a few things that changed for me. Some were good and the rest was sort of bad in my opinion. Everything that happened taught me a few lessons. It even opened my eyes more to certain situations. It’s time for me to share the things I learned this summer.

Lessons I Learned This Summer…

1) Take advantage of my time alone: When I’m alone and have time for myself I tend to get lazy. Sometimes I don’t like that because I know I need to get blog posts done, homework ( I took college summer classes), and a few other things. Once night fall come around I regret not doing some of those things because I  had plenty of time to do it. Especially when I wanted to post good content on my blog. Laziness is a bad trait!

2) Stop looking forward for plans with “friends”: When I made a couple of plans with some friends that didn’t work out. Sometimes it made me a little upset because they would either cancel at the last-minute or come up with some other excuses. That’s why I stop making plans and let life take its course. There were times I did get lucky and got to hang out with my best friend though.

3) Find time to take a vacation: I took three unexpected vacations this summer. Honestly, I’m glad I did get a chance to get away for a while. This summer was the first time in a long time I went on a vacation. Every one of the vacations I went on was meant for me.

Those were the major things I learned this summer. Overall, I enjoyed my summer. I can’t complain. If I had to go back in time to do everything over again. I probably would. Is there anything you learned this summer? If so, share it in the comment section.

Dollar Tree Has Good Stuff (Dollar Tree Haul)

For those of you don’t know I love shopping at dollar tree. I find decent products for just a dollar. Yeah, I said it A DOLLAR! When I was on my weekend trip in Myrtle Beach, SC. I went to their Dollar Tree and got some cool items. Enjoy the items below I’m going to show you!

I thought these little journals were so cute! When I saw them, I fell in love. I couldn’t leave them in the store. They got added to my notebook/journal collection in my room. 

I had to get a new bottle of white out. It always come in handy when I make a mistake. This is a good brand too. So, it’s a good deal to get it for a dollar.


 I thought these were decent socks to buy. They last you for a good while. I was trying to find a pack of socks that had 3 pairs instead of 2

I’m a sucker for pens with different colors. I love colorful things. I know these pens work good. So, I had to get these. Now my notebook is going to have pages full of colorful writing.


Dollar Tree makeup section have good stuff most of the time. Usually I look and see what kind of lipsticks they have. This time I got this cute lip gloss. I can’t wait to try it! Also, I love the way it looks too. Sorry for the glare on the picture. 


I had to get some snacks!

Before I go to the register, I always got to make sure I get at least one of two snacks. Dollar Tree has a good variety of snacks you can choose from. The Lifesaver gummies are my favorite! I wish they had the wild berry flavor though. It tastes better than the basic flavors.



I love eating boiled peanuts! When I saw these in the store. I had to grab them. It’s a good late-night snack.





I’m hoping you enjoyed this Dollar Tree haul. This is something I may do again if everyone enjoyed this post. If you shopped at this store before comment items you love buying from there?

Why Long Distance Relationships are Special

Most people can’t handle being in an LDR (long distance relationship). They always feel like they need their partner around 24/7. Don’t get me wrong people in an LDR want the same, but we’re not as clingy. We are strong enough to handle not being physically around our significant other, any temptation that might try to break up our relationship, and the negative opinions that are said about our relationships. Even though, we will love to have our boyfriend or girlfriend around us we are able to remain faithful to them.

There is no such thing as not being able to handle a long distance relationship because if you really care or love someone genuinely you won’t even give them a suspicion of questioning your loyalty. I mean don’t get me wrong I know some couples go through situations and if the solution to their problems is breaking up that’s fine.

Long distance relationships are built for people who don’t mind making sacrifices and being patient. Lord knows it’s hard to have patience when you want to see the person you love in person every day. Long distance relationships are special because not too many people can boldly say that they had enough courage to stay in their relationship without distance affecting the way they love their significant other.  Question for my readers: What makes your long distance relationship special?

First Time Traveling Alone 😮😐🤗

Hey, readers, after a year of not seeing my boyfriend. I’m finally traveling to NY to see him. I miss being around him in person. For those of you who don’t know. I am in a long distance relationship. Check out my post about long distance relationships. My boyfriend lives in New York, USA and I live in South Carolina, USA. We don’t get to see each other often because traveling is EXPENSIVE! So, now I have a chance to see him this weekend. Y’all just don’t know how happy I am. Plus, his mom wedding is this weekend too! That’s going to be exciting. The only part I’m worried about is traveling alone because it’s my first time. I pray that I have a safe trip. I’m going to feel so lonely without my mom and sister with me. Also, it will be my first time visiting New York so that’s another nerve wrecking thing. I shouldn’t worry too much cause I know my boyfriend will make me feel comfortable there. Everyone pray that I have a safe trip going there. I’m leaving this evening and arrive there in the morning. I’ll be sure to share my experience. Have a nice day everyone. I’ll be back later lol.
