The Love Within

I watched Love and Hip Hop Miami and it finally hit me how toxic this show is. It’s all about insecure people blaming and projecting their self hate on others. They lie, cheat, scream, and fight all to show others how important they are.

Fast-forward a few episodes and Amara and her friend Veronica Vega are fighting from what stemmed from an ignorant comment. After this I decided that I had more than enough drama for one day.

My great grandmother will be missed dearly. She lived a good life and was always positive. She had the best sweet potatoe pie and was a really good cook. She was the rock of my family. Love you grandma- rest in paradise.

As a kid you can’t wait to get grow up, but when you grow up you think“if only I could be a kid again”. Being an adult is not all negative it just depends on your state of mind. But there are two main levels of adulting; initial level and advance level.
