Great, inspirational words from CNN International news anchor, Zain Asher. Ya’ll the struggle is real but believe in your abilities. Yes, you will bumble and struggle but never give up on what you want. Work hard for what you want. Your circumstances do not define you. AND fun fact: her brother is actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor (Google Him). Some encouragement to give you life!!
I understand the long wait because I am still waiting at 27. No sex without marriage…it is what it is. I have Biblical reasons but there are personal reasons why I am waiting. Yes, people find me crazy, traditional, and naive. I even had someone tell me “how will you know what you like.” But I am waiting for my God-given partner and I do not need to settle.
Yvonne Orji is an actress and yes, she is waiting too. Her words are so real to me. Being a virgin seems strange to society…like it’s some disorder or disease I need to be cured of. It’s NOT. I want God’s best for me. I want to best too. Enjoy!!
I wanted to share memorable moments of 26 and what I look forward to at 27.
Life as 26 Memories:
- Surviving Law School
- Started Blissfully Bianca
- Long Distance Driving from Jacksonville, FL to Atlanta
- First Surgery (Deviated Septum)
- Transition to a New Church
- Summer Legal Internship at a Private Firm (YASS)
- Practical Learning Experience at my school’s Immigrant & Human Rights Clinic
Forward Thinking at 27:
- Graduating law school
- Passing the Bar
- Finding A Job
- Dating?? (It could happen. Not setting my hopes up..but you know).
- Keep SLAYING!!
Life can get stressful. Sometimes I have to remind myself to eat. I even take a step further and venture out to eat. Commit to places that have good service and good food. Here are a few places I like I eat at:
- Bahama Breeze
- Cheesecake Factory
- M Shack
- Chick fil A
- Panera Bread
I am a lover of music. I was inspired by a friend who posted classic icon songs from amazing artists of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s. Music today is not the same as the legends who came before us. I am old soul and I love these artists. Whether on a good day or bad day, these artists can do no wrong with their songs. I highly suggest these artists’ music.
- Michael Jackson
- Stevie Wonder
- Whitney Houston
- Earth, Wind, & Fire
- Billy Joel
- Frank Sinatra
- Nat King Cole
- Nina Simone
With a busy law school schedule, I know I deserve a break from reality. Here are some amazing TV shows that put a smile to my face.
- The Office (Netflix)
- Parks & Recreation (Netflix)
- America’s Next Top Model (the old re-runs and the recent revival)
- Jane the Virgin
- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
- Dancing with the Stars
- Project Runway
- Master of None (Netflix)
I would highly recommend these shows. There are reality shows, drama, and comedy. You cannot go wrong with these shows.
Any good shows you like? I am always down for suggestions.
