This has been a year for me.
And I realized why it got me the way it did… because I didn’t have you all to talk to it about. So yep…. I’m back.
All K Word.
All the Time.
Well not all the time. I don’t want to lie to you all like that.
Until then lovebugs!
So I am sitting here in Starbucks
illegally downloading movies on piratebay enjoying my iced coconut milk caramel macchiato this fine Sunday morning and felt a crazy wave of frustration come over me. If you are my FB friend you have seen spurts of these in the last month… they are usually 4 sentence long with some form of witty wordplay to protect my non-POC friends from being uncomfortable.
Because you know making non-POC people feel comfortable is the responsibility of every “good black person” to combat the scariness of those angry radical ones…
Sigh…. I am angry. I am still angry. I am angry that a week ago (the night after the Dallas shooting) I was in genuine fear for my life. Continue reading I Don’t Want to Be a Hashtag…
Ok… don’t let the headline fool you. I am not ready to talk about it. I have not fully processed it. I am not sure how long it will take and if I will every be strong enough to talk about it on here… but love almost killed me.

Ok so I am writing this post while on fumes because I am afraid that if I try to write it after I wake up from the haze all the good stuff will be gone. I just had an amazing weekend in New York. Like slightly south of epic. I flew into New York for the Afropunk concert festival (more about that in 5 seconds) all by my lonesome. Now I will be going on and on about how dope it was for me to be flying by myself and doing the trip solo but to be honest I was supposed to be meeting my ex there, but she got sick. No not that ex… or that ex… but that one… Awww yeah her. We rekindled our friendship over an OKcupid mishap…
I wasn’t going to write about this here…. because I actually forgot until this moment. BUT what in the hell is in the drinking water? In the last two- three months I have two different exes contact me to tell me that “friends” of mine have tried to hook up with them on the lowdown sneaky sly. WHO DOES THAT??? Well obviously these broads do… I mean I know I date dope chicks and the dating pool is shallow nowadays but GET YOUR LIFE… NOT MINE.
Ok I’m back. Well yeah I was supposed to meet her in NY but she got sick the day before so I was like “F*ck it” I’m out! I am sooooo glad I did. Continue reading KTravel: Solo Trip to #AfroPunk… The Great, The More Great, and the Well….
So in true Kristi of the K Word fashion, I completely forgot to blog about my birthday on my birthday… or even the week of my birthday…
I had an amazing 5th 28th birthday while an equally amazing group of ladies and our resident “THE GUY” the weekend before last. Continue reading Better Late Than Never: Happy Birthday to Me – Giveback Kickback
