Looking up, hoping to catch up to my dreams soon * 👆🌠 "Stuck with yourself like the rest of us
Dirt gets done and then we back to dust
Runnin' in place
Sun in my face
Let me fly 'way
Heaven won't wait
Heaven won't wait
Let me fly 'way
Get in my way

@atmosphere - Like The Rest of Us

Excited for food and music this weekend and I hope you are too 🤘🏽 Link in my bio, don't forget to buy tickets so we know how much food to bring for everyone!
This event is NOT about generating profit for my pockets. It's simply to connect YOU, the people that I love, with the things that I love.

The things that I love are simply good music, good food, and good energy. And you can have access to ALL of them with a $5 donation. That donation gives you a curated day of music I love, and an opportunity to help out some people in need.

For the VIP ticket, half of that gets donated off the top. For $17.50, you're getting food, dessert, a beer tasting and a print at the photo booth. You won't find a better deal for the money you're paying.

Why? Because I'm not looking to make any profit off this event. If I walk away with $40 in my pocket to treat myself to a nice dinner after the days over, I'll be an incredibly happy person.

All I want is for the people I love to be connected with the things I love 💕💕 hope you see y'all this weekend!

Been logging 50+ hrs/wk between 3 jobs and 2 passion projects to bring you the first event I've put together as #egodeath. It's been a crazy journey but I'm happy and excited to invite y'all to this benefit event I've been working on! Got an incredible music lineup with @the_do_rite and friends, amazing brews from @dryriverbrewing and @indiebrewco delicious bites from @califuze, and some icy sweet treats from @maxouboon !

I'm not planning to make any substantial money off this event and my hope is that at most 50% of the proceeds will go to funding the event, and the other 50% will be donated directly to a nonprofit that's doing hard work to give the #boricuanas of #puertorico medical supplies and resources to US citizens who are being failed by a country that's neglecting OUR OWN PEOPLE.

We are the #middleclass, our buying power sustains communities and uplifts those in need! Let's show the world that we can have a great time while creating positive change in this world! 🌎🌍🌏 Ticket link in bio, full details coming soon but DM me for more info!

Spending some time this morning practicing introspection. Our mental health should be treated like our physical health; you don't get abs from watching sports, you don't become a better person from wishing it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm def having fun and getting wavy this weekend but it's important to balance that out with self-growth. You can party and be cool while also being socially and personally aware. These ideas do not need to be mutually exclusive, you are capable of doing both in the same life (: Have fun and be safe, fam! ✌

Honored to be a guest for the sista @sabriyya 's podcast. Some dope insights into what allyship truly means in today's world, also some mind bombs 💣💣💣 on anti-blackness as opposed to racism. Follow her and the show on IG, I also have the podcast link up in my bio!

On our first episode, I sit down with two dear friends Hideki Fukusumi and Jeffrey Liang to figure out wtf an ally is, who decides who an ally is, when they decide it and umm.. what do they do? It’s a new subject we’re just beginning to explore ourselves, so be prepared for some uncomfortable truths, unanswered questions and unequivocally awkward moments. Because that’s what friends are for, right? Link in bio!

Over the past couple years I've learned how important it is to surround yourself with people who are just as passionate and driven as you.
Support them, as they support you, and you'll have way more fun getting to the top 🙃 -------------------------------------------- Also, I have so much to say about #daca and when I give myself time to really sit and think on it, it brings me physical pain. But I've actually been having a lot of in-person conversations about it which have been encouraging to say the least.

I mean, let's be real. A lot of people are reluctant to talk about their stances, for WHATEVER reason. It doesn't matter because the bottom line is we shouldn't feel this way.
We should be able to have intelligent disagreements and still maintain relationships with other people. It's just a mature thing to do, it's an expectation I have of others that are adults. I don't think it's asking for much, but maybe other people don't agree with me?

But here's the thing. I'm open to the idea that I'm wrong. And that's where productive conversation begins.

Been feeling more comfortable in my own skin than ever before lately. It hasn't been an easy journey, and there are a lot of people that have helped me get to where I am. Patient. Passionate. Determined.

Thank you for continuing to fuck with me, I'm back and I'm better!

Concrete jungles hide the beauty of growth
Slow to start, fast to go, when will we know
What it truly means to have a place to call our own?
I'm tired of the sand and stone that mold over
The nature that the creator originally intended to habitate the land.
From Grand to Alameda to San Pedro I just want the freedom for my people
To dip their hands into a future that's rightfully theirs.
Climbing stairs leading to nowhere can feel no-fair
But there's always a silver lining,
If we care to look for it.
Next time the wind blows I propose that
You take a load off your feet,
Grab a seat and enjoy what you can't control.
Find a way to compose your soul because everybody knows that a rose can grow in an island of concrete

We can keep going with the status quo, we can let people make decisions for us, we can be content with the mainstream... OR

We can recognize the power of our voices. We can realize the everyday potential of average people everywhere. We can use what little voice and platform we have to make a difference, even if it's in ONE person's life.

One of the most simple joys I get out of life is sharing music I enjoy with other people. There's something about connecting over vibrations and energy that can make people feel instant bonds, it's one of the many wonders of this world that give me life!

I've been making monthly playlists on #spotify since the beginning of this year, follow me on Spotify and check em out!

Link to this month's playlist in my profile 😁
Take 5 seconds to add Call-In on IG! Got some things on the horizon :D

We're living thru a very weird time right now. There's a lot going on in the world and our voices are not being heard because we're forgetting how to raise them.

This is the new era. The new enlightenment. The renaissance. This is the time where we stop being content with silence. Blaze new trails of knowledge and technology and morality. Your reality deserves a seat in the spotlight of the everyday narrative of life.

Find the balance. Stand up. Speak out. Be #humble. Make better choices.
Creative shit coming to an ear near you. Very soon.

My incredibly talented friend @sumaan has put a vision of hers into fruition, @smbdy2me. I think of myself as somewhat of a wordsmith, but words often escape me when I try and describe the energy and soul she brings to the things she puts her energy in to.
I think it's so important to support the folks in our lives with their passions and talents, we gotta be a louder #proudfriend sometimes 📣📣 I hope everyone else is able to find some confidence to start their week off! 🙏✊✊ #Repost @smbdy2me with @instatoolsapp ・・・
Most days, you hope you can be stronger for others if they can't find it within themselves to gather their courage. Some days you're at the rim of even your own strength but you grin and bare it so that you can lead the people you love without fear. I noticed I take a lot of photos of plants but that's probably because I make it a point to take a walk outside everyday to reflect and today this is my reflection. Today, I am strong. #smbdy2me
A lot of my thoughts lately have been about identifying all the unhealthy thoughts and habits that are socialized on me, and us as humans living in the US.
The way I compare my journey to others, the way society and capitalism do not ascribe value to the things that I find invaluable, the way people have unhealthy ego in their beliefs.
I'm starting to find that the more I'm proactive about developing my intuition, the more confident I am about my instincts. Wishing everyone on the same journey extra patience today!

Go into the weekend with a light heart. Identify the things, people, and thoughts in your life that are poison, and figure out how to start phasing them out. We all deserve to surround ourselves with people who add value to our lives 🤙

Know your worth.
Never. Settle. For. Less

You've now defeated 2 types of cancer, a brain tumor, seizure episodes leading to hospitalization, and all the other fuckery that life continues to throw at you (I'm part of that sometimes, I know). For a long time I wondered why I was always around such strong-willed, articulate, intelligent women. Growing older with you has helped me realize that you set the standard for the women who hold a seat in my life. Thank you for continuing to show me true grit; I'm humbled more every day you walk this earth.

I know I don't talk about Do-Rite Collective much and outwardly it may seem like I'm just a promoter, but the energy you feel when you're with us is so much more.
Here's a clip of a short spotlight @nieman_ put together about why I enjoy being involved with Do-Rite, and don't forget to come out to our 2yr anniversary tomorrow! I'm hosting the 2nd half of the night, and ill also be performing with @steeps_the_guru and @input_47 at 7:45p!
