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…

I Had Hope For Other Hair: Confessions in Black Motherhood

I had hoped for other hair...
(My Little One Reading a Book Before Bed)

... for my daughter.

No, I didn't want her to have "good hair"... hair that ebbed and flowed close to the weight of Whiteness. I didn't want that for her.  I didn't want her to have hair that was deemed "managable" or "a good grade". as if you can give hair letter grades or grade it on a curve.

I just wanted her to have any hair other than MY hair. She inherited my hair. And I cried.

When I found out I was having a girl, anxiety was replaced with dread. "Dear God.. I have to learn how to do hair". See, growing up, my mother was my stylist, even way into high school. So in between salon visits, she would relax or press my hair. She'd style it or comb it. And I never worried about it. I tried and tried to do my own hair... and failed. The only style I could keep up were Brandy-inspired box braids (which some poor, Senegalese woman would do for hours) or a very sho…

Desperate Times, Drastic Measures!

Hey Folks!

I know.. I have skipped a couple of weeks already! BUT in my defense, having a sick toddler will wear you out... and family really is important.

That being said... I've gone through a lot in the past couple of weeks. I've had a physical, which has made me reassess  my life. I have more appointments on the books than I care for just to make sure I am doing ok. I don't want to go into anything as to alarm folks, but I do want to keep on trucking and this is all part of being proactive. I'm still in the gym but not really seeing much progress. I am sure it has something to do with my eating. It isn't that I eat bad.. I just do not eat enough to burn off the fat . I have to meal plan better..

This is where Pinterest comes in....I have tons and tons of food options saved. I figure I can do weekly "sheet pan" meals for my meal planning.. and then shop for the week. I normally I am a "once a month" grocery shopper... but I think that's g…
