#NIADIARIES VOL 5. – BEING YOUR OWN BOSS/A YEAR AFTER GRADUATING COLLEGE

Even though I'm new to this brand-new fluorescently colored world of entrepreneurship, I know for a fact how important self-motivation is. It's weird because ever since I was in diapers I've had a boss to deal with whether that's my weird-ass English teacher from 11th grade with the lisp, my incredible, amazing, and hilarious parents, or even my non-existent boss from my old...

#WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe

Just like every other warm-blooded black millennial on social media, I too am in awe of Black Panther. Before I went to go see it at my local movie theater, I was a bit skeptical.

#niadiaries vol 4. – freelancing & “december’s resolutions” (blogmas edition)
