How It All Started

Writing has always been a passion of mine. I’ll write about almost anything. I have notebooks and journals from eons ago that I’ve managed to keep up with over the years. I’d always wanted to share my writings with the world but never thought I was tech savvy enough to do so. I’m old school. I was hella technologically resistant.

The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.

Marcus Aurelius

Wanna know what my catalyst was to just put my work out there and figure it out along the way?

I really really hated my job.

And I knew that there were a lot of other people that hated their jobs as well.

I thought that maybe my blog would serve as a source of laughter, inspiration or information on their lunch breaks or at the end of the workday.

I had no idea that this blog would still be afloat five years later.

Since 2017, the Pretty Dope Right? blog has served as a space to share my perspectives on being black in corporate America, my mental health journey, life reflections, short stories and a host of other content.

As always…….thank you for reading!
