What to do when you want to keep your job but……

…you’re on the verge of slapping the shit out of your colleagues and it seems like everybody in the office has got you “fucked up” as well. Ok. Now breathe. I get it. I’ve been there. If you don’t have bail money or aren’t in a position to quit, here are a few strategies to help you “cope.” Write it down, ball it up, toss it out I can’t even begin to tell you how many trashcans I’ve filled up using this method. Working in a shitty corporate setting will do that to ya. Not only did this method provide immediate relief, but over time, I noticed that I wrote less and less notes. I began to regain my sanity without sacrificing my job. I began smiling more and became more engaged with the team. I kept it cordial with the folks that bothered me and focused on nurturing the healthier relationships. Phone a friend and throw a bitch fit The GroupMe app is heaven sent! My friends were the first group of people that knew how much I hated my last job. Of course they understood. Half of them calmed me down from slapping the hell out of my boss. Now the other half was willing and ready to show up and show out. Support is support. I’ve vented on numerous occasions……sometimes til I was in tears of frustration. I’ve gone out “for drinks” to de-stress til I damn […]

Love After Lockdown

This will likely be one of the most transparent pieces that I’ve ever written. Most of you all know that I typically don’t discuss my personal life online- especially my family. But last week there was a major shift with my family dynamics. Not many people knew that my dad had been incarcerated for the past 18 years of my […]

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
