Write the blog sis!

I’ve been slacking. I’ve been challenged. Most importantly I’m making changes for the better. Slowly but surely I’ve gotten away from myself and more specifically, my writing. It bothers me more than I care to admit. Not only am I letting myself down, but I also feel like I’m letting down my fellow writers and those that depend on me […]

The Final Assignment

I became their teacher in November. No formal training, education, nada. Most would say that I was at a disadvantage being given seniors. This is the result of simply teaching with what’s in my head and in my heart for my kids.   At the end of the semester, I created a written assignment for my students. A few students complained since it was a math course. A few were eager to write as it was worth a quiz grade replacement.   Ms. Royster’s Final Self-Reflection Assignment As you all know, I am a writer at heart. I decided to share my love for writing with you all. Luckily for you I will be dropping your lowest quiz grade and replacing it with a completion grade. Below are the requirements for the assignment.   Your Self-Reflection Needs to Be: Handwritten on college ruled notebook paper (I have plenty!) Turned in at any time but no later than the last day of class One page minimum (but you are more than welcome to write as much as you’d like beyond the one page) Transparent. Be honest.   Please respond to all of the following: How has this course impacted me? This impact can be positive or negative depending on your experience.   How will the skills that I have acquired in this course assist me with future success?   What other skills may I need to adapt to give me the […]

I Bet You Think This Poem Is About You

He produced the biggest prettiest dick I ever did see Kept the longest erection I’ve ever seen a man keep Ate everything from pussycat To tossed salad And had the audacity To shuffle around my guts Til I collapsed and fell asleep Once awakened I was greeted by butterflies Coming from the pink mountains between my hips Pulsating faster than the speed of sound Spellbound

And Don’t Forget!

We’ve finally reached the most controversial holiday season of the year. Tis the season of cheer, fellowship, joy, love and traditions. Tis also the season of ungratefulness, greed, loneliness and feelings of inadequacy. Now I’m not saying that it isn’t okay to be joyous. I’m simply asking you to be mindful. Here are a few reasons why. Working in retail […]

May I Have Your Attention Please

This year, up to this point, has been quite the rollercoaster. It has been full of new beginnings, freedom and rediscovering purpose. After four and a half years at my job, I finally received a promotion that would allow me to utilize my grad degree and have hella money in the bank. I thought I’d finally made it. For all of the money I had in the bank, I was in the negatives mentally and emotionally. For the first time in my life, I quit my job and enjoyed a four month sanity sabbatical. I’d encourage anyone to do so if you are in a financial position to do so. Within that time I got back everything that I had given to this “job.” I got my physical health back. I got my peace of mind back and gained a much deeper understanding of myself an day place in the world. Those four months were also full of setting intentions and seeing them manifest. One of the intentions that I set was to not only know when it was time to return to the workforce, but to also be presented with a position that I was supposed to be in. I knew that this position would allow me to wake up, work, walk and continue to live in my purpose- which is to be a light for others. It was manifested at the beginning of November when I received the […]
