Kevin Kirkland

You see that despicable, useless, filthy name? If you are a news buff like myself, you know what type of garbage is behind that name. Kevin Kirkland, for those of you who may not know, was a Special Needs teacher in the state of California who was convicted of sexually assaulting Special Needs students. What is more disturbing is that students had been complaining about him and his deviant conduct for years. Look at him. Look at his filthy, disgusting sour-looking self!

It has taken ten long unnecessary years for charges to be brought against this sexual sadist, predator, pedophile and rapist and I find that to be outrageous. Imagine the fear and intimidation his students must’ve felt whenever they had to step foot into his classroom. I’m angry and I blame the principal and school district for ignoring the pleas of these brave Special Needs students who took steps to report him. That school district he taught in is as worthless as a penny with a hole in it. Useless lint balls…

My heart goes out to the victims and I hope the parents will go after the principle and school district next for not taking the complaints of their children seriously and for failing to protect them. He should have never been allowed to harm so many students for so long. Just imagine the damage this gutter urchin has done…

Until next time…

Sad and Unfortunate

I sometimes find myself shaking my head when I hear about deplorable behaviors from people I’ve worked with. Things that can cause serious damage to a person’s reputation…

These types of individuals are always betrayed by their own; the very same people they choose to be “messy” with. They should really be careful who they share things with. They should really be careful who they lay up with. They should also be careful how they act when they get alcohol in their system. Some people act so reckless and think nobody will ever know about it. How sad and naive. I’ve seen my fair share of people exposed over the years and even now, presently. Can you imagine the sleep they’re probably losing?

Before they know it, their name is being dragged through the mud throughout the workplace by the same people they call their friends / confidants. Terrible, just terrible. If it’s one thing I can say, I’ve never (thus far) had a friend to betray me because I choose my friends wisely.

Your name is the most valuable thing in your possession. The way you act and behave can have a strong bearing on your name. Let there be mostly good things said about you when your name is mentioned.

Until next time…

Stay in Your Lane 

Good Evening! You made it through Wednesday aka Hump Day! Aye! Whoop! Whoop! 

I’m coming to you tonight with another relatable post. I’m going to get straight to the point. Are you ready? Let’s go! 

We’ve all heard the saying, “Mind your own business”, right? My family likes to say, “Stay in your lane.” Unfortunately, some people like to be in everyone’s business or in everyone’s face. Every time you look around they’re in some sort of foolishness or mess. Why? Because they are being a busy body by meddling in places and other people’s faces instead of staying in their own lane. When they get called out on it, caught up in some mess or put in their place, they all of a sudden end up looking all ashamed and embarrassed:

Some people should learn to just be quiet and mind their own business. You don’t have to open your mouth or chime into everything. Just keep your mouth shut, you can never go wrong by staying in your own lane. I’ll be honest with you, when I see people like that, I end up either shooing them away, keeping my distance from them or I’ll say little to nothing when I’m around them. I’m not too fond of jumping into other folks conversations nor is it of any interest to me to be in the midst of everyone or everything. 

Sit back, be quiet and just learn to observe. You can find out a lot about a person by just watching them. A person can tell you a lot about who they are without even coming out and telling you. All you have to do is watch and pay attention. Staying in your lane will save you from being wrapped up in a lot of drama and it will make your life a little less complicated. 

Until next time… 

No Boring Allowed 

I’ll be the first to admit that my blog is not your average blog. I get it. My blog is pretty much a misfit so you never know what I’ll post next, but you have to admit that I keep it entertaining. I like to expect the unexpected (sometimes) because it can make life more interesting. Well, at least for me. Since day one, I have marched to the beat of my own drum and it’s a beat that is very unique. Just like me Anita, my blog is no different. 

Doing the same thing every single day is so blah and bleh! Writing about the same thing every day for me is like watching paint dry. Boring! Pff! Hmmph! No way José! If you want to see me yawn profusely, go over or talk about the same ole thang almost every single day. Please don’t do it!

If you’re looking for a conformed blog, this ain’t the one. If you’re looking for a blog that is unconventional and filled with a lot of wit, then this is the place for you. Come join us, you’ll be glad you did. Who knows what I’ll post tomorrow. Remember, whatever it is that you do, make it fun! 

Until next time… 

Nappy?! 

A few weeks ago, I saw a documentary on Black women and natural hair. As I watched this particular documentary unfold, there was one part of me that felt proud, but then there was the other part of me that felt a little disturbed. I was happy to see more Black women embracing their own natural hair, but I was bothered by the sheer number of Black women who referred to Black natural hair as ugly and “nappy.” 

Here is the deal, regardless of your hair type or texture, if you do not take care of it your hair will get “nappy” or shall I say tangled. Often times the word “nappy” is referred to Black or African textured hair when in fact, “nappy” hair can occur in all races and ethnic groups. I could not help but to shake my head as I saw some Black women refer to their own natural hair or Black women with natural hair as ugly. It was bad enough that they called it “nappy.” SMH… 

There was one group of Black women who proudly stated they would “rock a weave” before they would rock their own natural hair. Oh. My. Goodness. I do not believe they realized just how absurb they sounded when they made such a statement. So you mean to tell me that you would spend hundreds to thousands of dollars to wear synthetic hair or someone else’s hair before you would wear your own?! Please go sit down and face the wall. Right now! Do not come out until I tell you to. Maybe next time you will learn not to say such a self-hating thing. 

I for one have natural hair as I discussed previously on my blog, and I love every multi texture that is scattered across my head. If you choose to wear your hair relaxed or natural, the choice is yours. I am quite sure you are beautiful either way. Just love your hair, take care of it and nurture it because your hair is a beautiful extension of you. Black or African textured is not ugly or “nappy.” It is different, but it is far from being ugly or “nappy.” 

Until next time… 

Nope! 

As an up and coming writer, I love using my blog as a platform to discuss matters of importance. I am connecting with more readers and bloggers because of it. Discussing topics without any substance would be a waste of my time…

Tonight, I am going to talk briefly about one of my pet peeves, negativity. I absolutely, positively do not care to be around negative people. Negative people will drain you or sap the happiness out of you, that is if you let them. There is no sense in being negative, yet some feel content on spreading their negativity onto others. It is true that who you surround yourself with will have an impact on who you are as a person so be careful. 

I for one will not sit, eat or carry on an extended conversation with a negative or deceitful person. I am not able to do that. I will however give a brief greeting (Hello how are you?) and keep it moving. You catch more flies with sugar than you do with water. I have had my share of negative people who tried to get close to me, but I never give them a chance to do so. I know how to keep negative people at a distance. 

I must admit, I do feel sorry for negative people because they do not realize that the biggest hindrance to their own happiness is themselves. Sure, they may get a little kick out of hurting people or trying to hurt other people, but in the end, they are really hurting themselves. It is easy to want to retaliate or seek revenge, but do not stoop to their level by doing such a thing. You just keep being the positive person that you are because in the end, it will work itself out. It always does. 

Until next time…

Laugh Your Heart Out 

Laughter is the best medicine. We’ve all heard that line at some point in our lives. Some say it is, some say it isn’t. I personally love to laugh. Laughing is one of the best feelings in the world and it’s something I enjoy doing greatly. 

Now, I’m not one of those folks whose laugh consists of a small chuckle or a light giggle. No, I’m one of those folks who laugh hard and loud. I honestly can’t help it. It’s bad enough that I laugh hard and loud, but when I get really tickled, I cry. The tears just flow and they don’t stop until I stop laughing. 

For me, laughing is the ultimate workout. My stomach gets tight, I break out into a sweat and after its all over, I’m completely exhausted. I’ve had people tell me that they can’t believe such a hard and strong laugh can come out of a small framed person like myself. Really, I’m not that small as some people seem to make me out to be, but I do have a laugh that can carry some serious weight on its own. 

How often do you laugh? Better yet, how often do you smile? A smile, believe it or not, quite often leads to laughter. If you are ever feeling emotionally down, give your body the best medicine by laughing your heart out. 

Until next time…
