Sociology 201: A Brief Synopsis of Racism

Sociology 201: A Brief Synopsis of Racism

Ok students, please open your minds and open your text books to the sociology section. Today we will dissect a concept that has done nothing but harm over the years and continues to serve as a barrier delaying unity and upward mobility for the human species as a whole. Haven’t guessed it yet? Today’s topic is RACISM. If … Continue reading

A Modern View on Womanhood

A Modern View on Womanhood

Happy Women’s History Month to all of the ladies out there! Men don’t realize it but being a woman is tough! A blessing, but a burden all at the same time. We are blessed with more power, drive, finesse, grace, whits and elegance than most of us know what to do with but at the same … Continue reading

Greedy Jeanious 2.0

Hello world! 🙂 At this point I feel as though an apology would be beyond pointless. An absentee blogger is bad enough but to add insult to injury by offering an “apology” after being MIA for nearly a year is just rude so, lets just skip past that part and call it even.. okay? Thanks for … Continue reading

Digital Intimacy

This is something I posted on my other blog but found it so interesting I wanted to share it with my WordPress fam too. Now, if you’ve read by blog for any amount of time you’ll know that I’m pretty conservative and old-fashioned when it comes to sex and relationships. In knowing that, I’m sure … Continue reading

So A Woman Thinketh so She Sweareth

“Why do you cuss so much?” is a question I’ve been asked for many years. Some contend that speaking with such harsh words is un-ladylike and all say speaking that way is ignorant and unnecessary. I’m not one to knock someone’s opinion but since this particular topic effects me personally I’d like to take a … Continue reading

Remember, Remember 11 September

To paraphrase a line from one of my favorite movies V for Vendetta, “Remember, remember the *11th of September*, the gunpowder treason and plot. Remember, remember the *11th of September*, I see no reason that the 11th of September should ever, ever be forgot”. I know, corny and a bit cut and pasted but after that movies release I’d always … Continue reading

Hard Advice For A Hard World

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything motivational and after a very interesting conversation with “The Warden” (my mom) I felt compelled to do so. Ordinarily I post something that’s bound to cheer you up when you’re feeling down or lend a kind word that reminds you that life will get better; this time … Continue reading

Road to Rememberance

This morning my high-speed and equally motivated Commander and First Sergeant saw fit to drag me and the rest of my co-workers out of bed at around 4AM in order for us to participate in what’s normally called a “fun run”. I’ll admit, I was pissed as shit when I got the word that today … Continue reading

Amaryllis

So yea, adjusting to life without the hooah-ness of the infantry and going through the motions of securing a house as well as learning my way around The Island while trying to climb the Army corporate ladder and juggling school has proved to be a bit more time and energy-consuming than I’d anticipated. I’ve always had … Continue reading

Run With The Jeanious!

Let me start off by saying that I’m not a runner. At all. Period. In my time in the Army I’ve taken dozens of physical fitness tests and have run many miles in the hot sun and pouring Washington rain but never have I learned to enjoy a good, long run. Even stranger, despite the … Continue reading
