Vlog: Clearing up Misconceptions and Shout-Outs


  1. my blog is actually called The Passionate Pursuit thanks for the shout out!

  2. Wow, some folks took your blog post about personality the wrong way. I told the hub about it and even he agreed with what you said. Why would you set someone up with a person that even you wouldn't think of dating? Anyway, keep doing your thing, Soror.


  3. Wooooh!!! Thanks for the shout-out!!! And you look gorgeous - your vlogs are my favorite!

  4. P.S. How dare you mess up Ty's shout-out by calling him "The Passionate Blogger." lmaoo!!! Get it right, boo. >:) Hahaha!

    P.P.S. Is that your IM going off in the background? lol

    P.P.P.S. I love that email address. LOL!!!!

  5. Dern Yaki..just highlight my flaws! My heart was in the right place..charge it to my head and not my heart :) !I was really doing this on the fly..and yeah my Skype and Trillian were going haywire. random FOOLYWANGS contacting me....AND I was trying to remember the blog names..tapping on the keypad (LOL)

    PS: It's also MinustheBars (not blogs..LOL). I am sorry Don and Ty! :) ANd I think I got my loctician's blog wrong too! LMAO!

  6. Understanding the closeness of you and your mom ... I share in your happiness.

    Love your personality, Mocha. I listened and really hadn't formed the opinions of those who considered you to be bitter. Anyway, the fact that you and your ex are good friends kinda blows that theory out of the water.

    Actually, you are something like a star comedian. Lol. And, of course, a true Southern Belle.

    Thanks for the shout. Made me smile. Hilarious @ your comment about getting many of the shoutouts wrong.

2018: A Year Without Fear

I used to make these lofty, resolution goals each year. The older I got, the grander my ideas became. That is until I reached the age of 30 and my entire life shifted.

At the time, I was divorced, living totally on my own, trying to rebuild myself financially and trying to figure out my next move toward happiness. That was at the time I started this blog.... which started out as my chronicling the dating and mating of a 30 something divorcee' in the South's Largest Metropolis. I was trying to date. I was trying to establish myself financially. And I was trying to find my purpose.

So much has changed in the almost 9 years since I started this blog. I've traveled alone. I gained and lost friends. I got into a Ph.D. program. I got re-married. I lost my mother, my best friend.... not to mention my uncle, cousin, and aunt. I gained a sweet baby girl.  I went from getting my bliss.... to trying to balance that bliss with my own life..... Yet in trying to find the balance, I alw…

Frat Boys, Toxic Masculinity and the #METOO Movement

(scene from Spike Lee's famous School Daze)

A few weeks ago, my sorority held its national convention on New Orleans. Coincidently, another fraternity was also holding their national convention in New Orleans. Naturally, the jokes, mostly in jest, played upon the fact that these two groups, full of single, attractive and smart folks would be "on the prowl" and looking to "hook up" in the city known for its strong drinks, Southern heat, and hospitality. It was all jokes until nastiness decided to rear its ugly head.

You had men in the other fraternity sexually harassing and being obscene to my sorority sisters who just wanted to have fun and handle the business of the sorority (and network.. and yes.. meet men in a somewhat safe space).  There were stories of men groping women. Men saying disgusting things and then being like "Well fuck you then" if women rejected them. You would HOPE and think that college-educated men wouldn't act this way.


The Ides of Birthdays

My 39th birthday is in two weeks.
You know, I feel like I write the same type of blog around my birthday every year. I get extremely introspective and pensive about the whole thing. But this is my last year of my 30s and I am feeling all of the feelings that have ever and could be felt. I hate trying to bring this up to folks.. who are always wanting to remind you of "well.. you got this.. you got that...". As if you haven't dealt with depression long enough to realize it doesn't matter what you have... if one piece is missing.. it throws it all off.
While yesterday was the 3rd anniversary of my mom's passing, I realized she wouldn't be here for my 40th. That was a hard pill to swallow. I thought for sure we'd be celebrating a lot that year... my Ph.D... a baby... a big, fancy car..... all of that. I only have one of those things so far but still... I was hoping that having her hold on at least until then would be the icing on my cake.
My life feels…
