So on Friday I posted the collages from Week 6 and today I’m giving y’all Week 7. This is the week when I really felt myself growing in my style and making some real waves. I started getting more political with a lot of these. It was a nice way of channeling out these emotions.

I’m a Published Poet!
Hey y’all, so I’ve been writing poetry since the 7th grade and I recently decided to take my poetry more seriously. If you’ve seen my 100 Day Project posts, you may already know that I’ve signed up for a trial of Skillshare. Rachel Mindell’s lesson on How to Get Published was exactly what I needed.
I started submitting my poems to different literary magazines last month and the first one to get back to me was Rigorous Magazine, a literary magazine with work specifically from people of color. I submitted 10 poems and they accept 9!

I was watching this Kennie J. D. video, as I tend do on Saturdays, and it was sponsored by none other than Skillshare. I’ve been hearing about Skillshare on YouTube for quite some time now, especially since they sponsor just about everyone. I decided with quarantine and all, now would actually be a good time to try it out.
I’m using the two month free trial right now that was in the bio of the video so I really have nothing to lose at this point. I just have to make sure I cancel it in time, if that’s something I end up doing. So far, I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
After signing up for the account, I decided to browse around the videos and ended up on the 100 Day Project. It wasn’t something I was familiar with but I had the time so I decided to check it out.Continue reading “My #100DayProject”
What to Expect
Welcome to my little corner of the internet.
Maybe you know me in real life, or maybe you don’t. Either way, you’ve made it to Life’s Commute. Now, here’s the kind of content you can expect on this little slice of the World Wide Web.
The idea for this blog originally started with me having so many thoughts, but nowhere to put them. I wanted to start conversations about things we usually don’t say out loud.
I love writing essays. I know, that’s not something you hear often, but it’s true. Exploring new topics is one of my favorite pastimes and it makes no sense for me to keep this writing to myself.
These aren’t just going to be essays, though. I want to know what you have to say about these topics, hence the “discussions” part. These essays are meant to spark conversation and leave you with something to think about throughout your day.
Commuter is defined as “a person who travels some distance to work on a regular basis.”
I’ve been commuting to and from school almost daily for nearly a year now. Over the past year, I’ve learned so many tips and tricks that could help make your own commute easier.
I will also be including a few travel adventures there, too.
Now it’s your turn to tell me what you expect!

Don’t Get it Twisted: Origin Story
New blog, who dis?
Why did I choose such a corny way of starting this post? The world may never know.
Truth be told, this blog is going to be pretty different from what I’ve written in the past. My first blog started with me writing about other people’s writing, i.e. book reviews. Then TV shows and movies got added to the mix.
Don’t get me wrong, I love making reviews, but I just wasn’t feeling satisfied with that kind of writing alone. Then, I decided it was finally time to start writing about the things I care about and hopefully giving out some advice along the way.Continue reading “Don’t Get it Twisted: Origin Story”
