Insomnia is a Hater Bish And I Need to Quit Her

There’s this ugly trollop I met in college named Insomnia. I don’t know how or why we became such BFFs but we were closer than close. But she was terrible for my life. She was a bad influence and we’d hang out all night doing nothing and then I’d blink …

I Took New Headshots So Help Me Pick One!

Since I speak at conferences pretty often, both on social media topics and to represent The Red Pump Project, I’m asked for my headshot a lot. But the one I always use is one from January 2010. And it’s obvious that it’s old because my locs are still 1-inch comb …
