“I am sick! I am sick, sick, sick of your sh*t! And when I’m not sick, I’m tired! I am sick and tired!” Who knew that I would still say this line till this day, but under different circumstances. Ruby in Monster-in-Law was fed all the way up with Viola, and I’m just about there with the US government and everything in-between.
WANTON ENDANGERMENT?!?! THAT PIG WAS CHARGED FOR SHOTS MISSED AND NOT FOR THE LIFE HE STOLE FROM BREONNA TAYLOR? HOW DO WALLS GET MORE JUSTICE THAN A BLACK WOMAN? I AM TIRED!
As a black woman, how do I feel safe? Where do I go? What do I do? I’m tired of talking about the same thing, but how do I go about my life and act like everything is peachy? At this point, I need a break, a break from social media, the news, Daystar Peterson (don’t get me started on him, but since I’m here let me say this: ISSA BIG FU*K DAYSTAR AND HIS ALBUM HE JUST DROPPED. DON’T STREAM NOTHING FROM HIM!) and his fans that STILL support him, just about everything. Maybe if I go on a walk every day to clear my head or take time out of my day to scream I might feel a little better.
Black women deserve the world and then some, but who will give it to us? I know that there are Black men and men in general who will do all these things for us, but all I see in social media is the complete opposite. If it’s not one thing it’s another. So to the Black woman that is reading this right now, I want you to know that I love and respect you. I care for you. You will always have a seat at the table with Styles of a Curvy Girl.
If you need a break as much as I do, then take today or the entire weekend to do something for you! It may seem like the world depends on us all the time, but don’t let that take away the time you give to yourself. Don’t know what to do? Let me help you decide:
- Treat yourself to a delicious lunch/dinner. Step out (w. your mask of course) or order takeout. Try out a new restaurant or even cook something new at home.
- Go for a walk
- Visit a friend
- Turn your phone on DND and relax
- Binge Girlfriends, Sister, Sister, or any movie or show your heart desires
- Get a license to carry
- Take a ride and explore
- Clean out your closet and make room for the sweaters and hoodies.
- Go candle shopping
- Stream Megan The Stallion’s music because she makes you feel GOOD!
- Delete everything Daystar Peterson from your music library
- Unfollow anybody that still supports him
- Have a spa day at home (robe, face mask, and maybe even wear cucumbers on your eyes lol)
- Buy a puppy lol
These are just a few things that I could think of to do. I have done and plan on doing some this weekend. If nothing on the list interests you then do whatever makes you feel proud to be you. It’s Friday and you deserve every bit of ME TIME! Make today your day!
*I promise I’m coming back with some looks for the fall. I ain’t forget that this is a style blog, but at this very moment the lewks can wait.*
I see you. I love you.
This one is for you.
Be safe + enjoy your weekend + SAY HER NAME!
See you in the next one
Xoxo, Jonice 💕
