The 100 Season 6 episode 2 is a One Way Trip

It seems like our favs have escaped death 100 times over. I renamed season 6 episode 1 of CW’s The 100 Murphy’s Law. This second episode is hereby dubbed Never Split the Difference as in Diyoza could run a whole academic department on negotiating. She may be harsh but her way or no way tactical…

Inflight Entertainment: I Was a Flight Attendant

“I’ve never been to Texas. I hear they have good food.” It didn’t take much to talk myself into interviewing for a flight attendant job. It was the year 2013 and after getting laid off from my first full-time job and finishing an AmeriCorps term, it was time for next big adventure. Once I found…

The 100 Starts Season 6 with The Murphy Show

Season 6 episode 1 of CW’s The 100 is now titled The Murphy Show. I asked for Murphy and the TV Gods heard me. Murphy is a lot like our old friend Jasper Jordan if Jasper only cared about himself. Murph has survived Earth, several apocalypses, heartbreak, and it’s helped him grow. He pretty much…

Destination Delicious: TerriBerriez Sweet Boutique and Cafe Opening Soon

When Terri Lawson approached me for a logo for her side hustle TerriBerriez Sweet Boutique and Café, I hadn’t seen the destination yet. Every week we sat at the local Panera discussing goals and accomplishments beyond blogs, logos, and fonts. Instead, we talked strategy and not once did I consider myself a mentor until one…

I’m a Millennial Mayor

It was our parents that told us that we could be whatever we wanted. I’ve been a secretary (fun), an AmeriCorps member (proud), flight attendant (interesting), IT Business Analyst (weird right), and now I can add millennial mayor to that list. On February 11th, 2019 I was sworn in as Braddock’s youngest mayor. I went…
