Stop Guilting Me to See Black Movies | Follow the Buzz DryerBuzz

#DryerBuzz — Stop begging me to see black movies. I have it on authority that Hollywood will always make black movies — at least a few a year. Black movies will always rank as blockbusters.  Even in that rare occurrence, we gather together to see ourselves, or representatives of us on the big screen. Yet, the baggage and burden of helping achieve blockbuster status is and always was too much. Forcing my dollar on Hollywood just ain’t my thang — any more. Especially when the local stage looks like me…

Can we digest a raw reality? #FeedaBlogger #DryerBuzz

#DryerBuzz — Binge on Buzz! A day later, finished other half of my raw food wrap. Why do I think we need to have a conversation about it? Basically salad serving yet a lifestyle consumed by some and not available to others. I walked into establishment of clearly woke folks not knowing what to order when I reached the counter. The Punany Wrap suggested for first timers. “A whole wheat wrap kissed with soy mayo and packed with Spicy Kale Salad, avocado, tomato, sweet coconut corn, and couscous.” After I…

Badasses Have Bad Days Too #DryerBuzz

#DryerBuzz — Badasses have bad days too. Strong and courageous individuals cape for a lot of people and causes. When in need, no one knows how to help, when to help, or if to help because exterior rarely shows wear and tear. No one expects the extraordinary to have ordinary problems. We often don’t realize such problems are ordinary problems because too many bury what they went through in shame. This makes it difficult for the next and creates a vicious cycle we’re all doomed to repeat. Stop watching and…

#DryerBuzz – Woke up and grabbed my phone. Same habit as everyone else I suppose. But I make it a habit to browse my Facebook memories before friends. I find scrolling my own memories a way to feel grateful before envy — a new natural occurrence of social media. Took one of those happiness challenges some time ago and results said I’m not as happy as I could be simply because I don’t savor my own accomplishments enough. So now each day, before seeing what friends are up to and…

“To survive as a single mom, I turned a closet into a tech space and changed the game.” #DryerBuzz A mom of four, I grew tired of explaining how much moms have to work.
