First Week as a San Diegan!

Hello friends! It has been a crazy fast week!  (not quite a week yet but close enough!)  I departed the Bay Area on Friday, August 19 and arrived in San Diego that evening after a 10 hour drive!  My boyfriend and I each drove our own cars and we managed to stay within close proximity throughout the entire trip.  We took turns leading the way, bypassing trucks, finding best path to get away from slow drivers on the road together.  It was super tiring but fun, exciting and dangerous!  I got so tired that I almost got into an accident, but I was okay!  I did give my boyfriend my...

Quitting my job and surrendering my control

Happy Friday! I submitted my 2 weeks notice last week, Wednesday, August 3.  My last day is next Wednesday, August 17.  The act of quitting was very difficult for me.  I am not good at disturbing the peace.  I value harmony.  Probably because I try my best to make sure everyone maintains a good version of me, even if that means concealing my emotions and authenticity.  I don’t know, but quitting was something I had to do, there was really no escaping it.  I felt like I’m disappointing my colleagues.  But it went very well, everyone took it well and was happy for me.  People were excited.  It’s really not that bad...

Rollerblading VLOG + behind the scenes photos

Hello friends, For those who follow me on snapchat (username: margecake) or instagram (@margecake) would know that I’ve picked up a new hobby– ROLLERBLADING! (I have a youtube video of me unboxing my rollerblades here and a recent vlog of me rollerblading by the beach: They say Pisces rule the feet and I finally understand why!  I personally love physical activities because it helps channel all of my mental energy into my body.  It’s a great release!  I love rollerblading because it teaches me how to trust my body and to live in it and to not abandon it.  While yoga teaches me how to listen without being judgmental of...

On desires, expansion and love

For awhile now, I wake up with a slight unease.  What do I need to do today?  The thought of commuting to work depletes me.  Perhaps I’m just a little tired.  On most mornings, my army of Gratefulness rages war against these energy depleting thoughts. I know I’m not alone in these emotions in regards to their jobs so I disregard them, like what most people would do and then drag themselves to work.  But deep down I know the unease is caused by my new expansion, yet I’m still settling for what I used to be. This morning I woke up a little earlier and I sat with these emotions.  Here,...

SF SomArts Cultural Center: The Black Woman is God exhibition

IMG-20160724-WA0017

I had a fantastic time at this art exhibition that took place on Saturday, July 23. I danced to the jazzy rhythms.  I couldn’t help myself but to sway to the beat of the drums.  I was moved by the powerful lyrics and poetry.  I went into a booth and in it, I recorded a little message to my inner child.  There were florescent artworks that shined brightly in the dark.  What is dark, but only an absence of light? There were many little sanctuaries of worship, with portraits of beautiful black women hung at high heights.  It does not command obedience nor approval, instead it showers you with compassion...
