My Strange Obsession with Orginizational Apps

My Strange Obsession with Orginizational Apps

So I love infographs. I read this magazine called good, which is like this super socially conscious magazine that talks about all the good people are doing in the world. It’s a mix between activism and designer. They even have these awesome infographs that catch my eye. You should check them out. Anyway, I was scrolling down my Facebook feed this morning and being an infograph junkie, they posted an infograph that looked at how much the world made based on the use of a site. The site is called Toshl Finance and it has an app that looks like it is really fun and easy to use. I was so excited because I’ve been trying to get organized and find new ways to budget. I personally like the site because it’s not intimidating.

You should check out the magazine and the app!! Great organizational tool!

What would you do with your lottery ticket?

Dear Kay (Me):

At 4 am this morning, I turned to the news. My dad lost his wallet earlier this week and proceeded to tell us that he was anxious because  his lottery ticket was inside.  We did not win, but knowing my dad it wouldn’t have bothered him. Money  and materialistic things are something my dad has told us not to idolize. 

Yet, I’ve always wondered what I would do if I won the lottery. I have a few things. I’d invest in a food bank industry that gave away free food but was funded through a grant from the government. A non profit.

Id clean up and buy the land rights to the side of town with a lower income, so they would not be kicked out, every single time people from the suburbs decided to move back into the city. I’d buy the rights to their houses and give those rights to them  or give them the money to buy the rights to their houses.

I’d give money to  hold a  marketing and entrepreneurial class at a homeless shelter so that  every person at the shelter would get a suit and get an investor to invest in their ideas, so that they could start over.

I’d donate money to fund a campaign that promoted unity among the African American community and start a network that taught African Americans more about their history. It’d uplift the black community and feature the work of young black students. It feature documentaries and give tips on how to market their own product. It’d feature forums with rappers that would ask how they think their music is affecting the black community.

I’d start a non-profit that would connect more with youth about the importance of voting. Id also start a non-profit that would allow youth of today’s generation to discuss race issues, openly and freely.

Lastly Id pay off my student debt, pay off my parents mortgage and fix up their house, and keep some money to the side for stability , just in case something were to happen.  If there was any left over , i’d just donate the rest  the urban ministry.

Wonder What this Dude is about

Wonder What this Dude is about

Jeh Johnson secretary of department of homeland security?


“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace” – Jimi Hendrix

If I didn’t know better, I’d think the world hated African Americans. Oh wait that’s kind of what it is.. but I have no clue why. Makes me cringe.

This is why I walk with the male members of my family.

My identity is …

My identity is very clear to me now, I am a black woman. -Lena Horne

I always see women of color idolizing Marilyn Monroe. However, at that time we could not even do the same things that Marilyn Monroe did, let alone, eat at the same restaurant. I think Lena Horne is a good role model because of her activism. She was very involved in the civil rights, but was also a pin-up, a singer, and an actress. Many people know her from The Wiz.

She refused to play the stereotypical roles that African Americans had to play at the time.
