All art is a kind of confession…all artist, if they survive are forced, at last to tell the whole story.              #JamesBaldwin #writing

Writing, real writing, should leave a small sweet bruise somewhere on the writer…and on the reader.

My GANG! Yes, my gang! My gaggle of goons! Let’s see, who does that comprise of:

  1. Of course, my family. My mother, a guidance counselor with two master’s degrees. My father, an internationally renowned strength coach for the winningest college basketball program ever. My little brother, the black man majoring in economics.
  2. Naturally, my boyfriend, right? He’s gotta be in my gang. He’s not a thug, but he’s studying to become a respiratory therapist. So, I guess if he chokes you out, he can put the air back into your lungs.
  3. My best friend, who is a lawyer in Memphis,
  4. My other best friend, who is starting school to be a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner,
  5. My two best friends who I worked at The Proctor and Gamble with, one who went to Duke and is a pastor, the other who went to UNC and is in her last year of medical school,
  6. My best friend who does financial wealth consulting for JP Morgan,
  7. My ‘play brother’ who is a commissioned officer in the navy in Japan,
  8. My law school best guy friend who passed the bar while singing acapella internationally,
  9. My close group of friends from undergrad, Vanderbilt University, a top 20 university that you would never get into,
  10. My tumblr family, who is WAY too big too individually list all of their talent and accomplishments. 

So, yes. That’s my gang, anon. 

I doubt I’d waste all that phenomenal energy on beating your ass. With a crew like this, we have a world to conquer. 

Now that’s how you respond to ignorance!!!!

Shoutout to all the artists on Tumblr who work on something for weeks and only get 4 notes.

Shoutout to all the artists on Youtube who do amazing speedpaints and, if they’re lucky, will get 500 views.

Shoutout to all underappreciated artists who do amazing work and receive no recognition.
