I believe that every woman should have a group of women she can count on. Maybe that's because I grew up with television shows like "Living Single," "227," "Girlfriends," and movies like "Waiting to Exhale" and "Set It Off." Those shows and movies depicted Black women in a sisterly light despite the various backdrops of each group of friends. Yes, they had disagreements and of course, "it's just television," but I like to believe that friendships like those still exist. I am thankful for my friends who encourage and celebrate me but also let me know when I'm wrong. My "get your shit together" friend-group is ever expanding because I am constantly meeting amazing women from whom I can learn.

On the downward slope of the age where it's still socially acceptable for a single woman to decorate her home somewhere in between a college dorm room and a mature adult. N.W.A. , Malcolm X and Billie Holiday posters align the wall; the throw pillows, curtains and area rugs coordinate. An introverted extrovert...complex simplicity. In my own little corner of the world, living single.

Some say it is a transient emotion, or that it is just a temporary feeling; fleeting, even.
I mean, isn't that what we're all striving to attain?
Or, do we mistakenly calculate things that would perhaps make us content or mildly comfortable and equate them to happiness?
Answer-- All ideas of happiness may differ.
>I'm interested in how people define a lot of things, "happiness" being one of them.

[these feelings don't seem like they belong to me]
Feelings are fleeting, tho;
emotion, is primal.
temporary gratification or longevity?
