Black Teenage Girls and the Impact of Social Media.

Balancing Screen Time and Mental Health: Excessive screen time and constant exposure to social media can take a toll on the mental health of black teenage girls. It is important to encourage them to find a healthy balance by setting limits on screen time, engaging in offline activities, and practicing self-care. Promoting open conversations about mental health, fostering resilience, and providing support networks can help them navigate the challenges of social media. Encouraging them to curate their social media feeds, following accounts that inspire and uplift, and unfollowing those that trigger negative emotions can also contribute to a healthier online experience.

The original Little Mermaid came out in 1989. Art is reflected by its current society. It is now 2023. Why is there so much surprise at the change? Why is there so much controversy? Why are we all acting like frown-locked adults lined up against another slippery slope argument? Picture your niece and nephew or your child watching the characters they love come to life on a humongous screen. Ask them what they thought of the movie when it ends, and listen. Dare to become a kid again yourself. Because, when it comes to the socio-political controversy of American media, sometimes it’s better to be “unda da sea.”

The dynamics of the parental relationship can deeply affect that of siblings. The book shows this to be true at every turn. I’m definitely not one to give spoilers, but this is something else that can be flushed out in discussion. “How You Grow Wings” is a book that should be read individually, and collectively.

Though it’s on the list of few songs I like by Drake, my introduction to him was “Brand New”. Truth be told he hasn’t changed much. His disrespect of these black women is upsetting, but sistahs unfortunately he hasn’t surprised me yet.

New Orleans is not the city you moved from with a bit of extra fun. It is its own space with a unique culture and Spirit…if it changed in this aspect, it would no longer be New Orleans and that is simply unacceptable.

The Hypocrisy is Blinding.

It is a corrosive disease that eats away at the foundation of any relationship. It is a gateway to soul deep lies, deception and manipulation. It is judgement in the most damaging form, and though it is easily seen…it’s hardly called out in a manner befitting the evil it intends.

I admit gaming is absolutely one of my favorite things to do. I love interacting with the gaming community, and on some days, I prefer to game alone as I chill with my thoughts. Some games really are about muscle memory as there is a decompressing taking place.
