  4. Just finished up The Nickel Boys. That book broke my heart. It's going to take me a few days to get over it. I'm so disgusted that the real life place it was based on is part of my state's history.
  5. This. Until both parties express interest in pursing things further, all interactions on a dating site are platonic. Some people may not even be looking for a date---maybe they are just testing the waters to see whats out there or just looking for casual conversation. I get your anxiousness, but you have to understand that it can make a woman feel very uneasy to sign in after a few days and see multiple messages from the same guy. The guy could be Mr. Dreamboat and I'd still block him because that behavior signals red flags everywhere.
  6. Read The Water Dancer in one day. Good book, especially considering it is Te-Nehisi Coates first work of fiction. Some of the characters could have been fleshed out a little more, but I loved it.
  7. I hate red and green bell peppers, but love yellow and orange. I hate that red peppers dominate any bag of peppers I attempt to buy. So annoying.
  8. I just finished two of Ta-Nehisi Coates' books: The Beautiful Struggle-A Memoir and Between the World and Me. The first book is a memoir of his childhood up until he entered Howard University, and the 2nd is a long letter to his son, who was 15 at the time of the novel. Both are really insightful looks into class and race in America, What I really liked about him is that he mentioned that his father was acquainted with Afeni Shakur (both were former Black Panthers living in the Baltimore area in the late '80's),yet Tupac only gets a casual mention as being a friend of his brother. The lack of clout chasing was refreshing---too many others would be more than happy to throw in mundane stories about 'Pac just to sell books. Looking forward to reading "The Water Dancer" next.
  9. So it's a beautiful day here in sunny South Florida and I was really wanted to go outside and read a good book. Well, the two houses across the street from my apartment (that just so happen to be AirBNB rentals), are each blaring music at the top volume (no bass, luckily). Was hoping to ring in the new year peacefully instead of having to deal with inconsiderate tourists disrupting the neighborhood. I never understood why people feel like everyone should hear their music---that is what headphones are for. I also never understood why you would visit an area and act like a total asshole just because you are on vacation,but that's me.
  10. @Sandman87 My heart broke reading your post. I am so happy that you will have your job and your kitties waiting for you. I am so sorry about the rest--it is completely incomprehensible.
  11. @BookWoman56 I am so sorry for your impending loss, but I am glad your mother is not going to have to suffer much longer. Ugh at the drunkard brother-in-law. I chime in with Bastet in wishing you peace during the coming days and weeks. @UYI I feel you. While I have my own place and a steady job, I have never been married and my parents don't know about my miscarriage.While my sister also has never married/no children, all our stepcousins have. So all this Christmas I heard about my 21 year old stepcousin getting married, my 23 year old married cousin with 1 baby and another on the way, and how they wished my sister and I would have married young and had children. Never mind our personal accomplishments. Anyhow, I'm learning that everyone is on their own path and what is meant for you won't go past you. Everything will fall into place the way its supposed to.
  12. He is the guy who launched his solo career with a diss song to his famous ex for cheating on him. Now that he's on the other side of things, I guess he felt he needed to say something publicly before people started calling him out on dragging Britney but staying silent when he got caught doing his dirt. What goes around comes back around, isn't that right, Justin?
