A Type of Different Part 3: “my name”

In elementary, I decided at school that I would go by the name my family calls me…Becky.  This was the nickname I’m called because of my middle name.  This name assisted in me also being called “white” as well.  If you remember reading A Type of Different Pt.1″acting like a white girl”, I explain how

Eleven Things I Learned in 2017

On New Years Day until today, I actually reflected on things that I learned about myself last year. I usually don’t do that, but in my attempt to become an adult and find growth within myself, I thought this could possibly be beneficial for this new year.  Here are 11 things that I have learned in 2017:

Now that my Belly is Full…

Welp, now that my belly is full and my feet are no longer tired…Thanksgiving 2017 was pretty awesome. We had a few friends come over, watched a horrible game of American Football, watched kids play videogames, and talked about memories of parents calling us from downstairs to come upstairs to pass them remote controllers that would have been faster to get than the time it took us to actually come all the way up the stairs to give it to them.
