I should probably put something here huh?

I'm a twenty-something college student. A young single mother to a precocious school-aged child. I go to school in Philadelphia and live in the area.

My interests include:
My Daughter,
Anthropology,
Photography,
Fatshion,
Natural Hair,
Feminine Empowerment,
Politics,
Crafts,
Interior Design,
Travel,
Cooking,
Comics,
Science Fiction,
Literature,
EROTICA

OKCupid used to be my preferred method of procrastination. I have a boyfriend now so I'm looking for a new way to waste time ... little did I know that tumblr was waiting here for me all along.
*UPDATE* I broke up with that dude. Single!!!

If you want to know what I look like, my tagged/me is below ... it says "page" for some reason. I don't know how to fix it.

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a computer animated feature starring a black character.

DEA Agent Was Told Not To Enforce Drug Laws In White Areas (Must Watch)

Don’t believe there’s a racial element to the War on Drugs? As a former U.S. marshal and special agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency, Matthew Fog witnessed the astonishing inequity of the War on Drugs firsthand. This is his story.

i think this is one of those teaching moments for white people and non-black people of color because black people knew this LOOOOOOOONG ago. i grew up in the neighborhood where suck attacks went down. we knew they weren’t doing it like that in park slope. we knew because we walked over there and noticed the difference immediately.

DIY All-Natural Skin Exfoliator For Silky Soft Legs

"The sugar rubs off all the dirt and dead skin, the lemon juice works as a mild skin peel revealing brighter, smoother skin, and, of course, the olive oil penetrates deep into the skin and provides long-lasting moisture.”

Recipe here.

Pray for South Korea

my-name-is-void:

If you hadn’t heard yet, a ferry in South Korea caring around 459 people (325 of which are high school students) capsized, taking with it many of its passengers. So far around 300 are unaccounted for, and at least 7 people are proclaimed dead. (You can read more about the tragedy here) Please keep this horrible tragedy in your prayers and hope they can save more lives.

Absolutely beautiful images from Botswana, the colours and patterns are breath taking. It’s so easy to forget how incredible nature can be.  7

‘Being above the ground at such low elevations, and having the ability to precisely maneuver, was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will. As soon as I saw the landscape from above I knew there was potential to create a special body of work.’

I love this color palette. My favorite is the one with the zebras.
