Albums on Current Heavy Rotation

Hey scholars!

Like millions of other people, I love listening to music. Most nights, I listen to music rather than watch television. Take today for instance, I washed my hair, showered, ran some errands, and chillaxed in bed, all while grooving to some mellow music. Instead of using music to put me in any particular mood or headspace, I choose music to fit my vibe. I am comfortable with how I am feeling today, I want my music to reflect that. 

Here is a list of albums that have been on repeat for the past couple of weeks.

Kehlani Sweet Sexy Savage

Solange A Seat at the Table

Black Names Matter

Hey scholars!

Some time ago, I visited a coffee shop on campus for a green latte to help me get my day started. I ordered my drink. After checking all the necessary boxes and writing the correct abbreviations for what I wanted, the barista asked me my name. “Rebekkah,” I tell him and proceeded to spell it for him. Sometimes I forgo doing so, just to see what the barista comes up with and they come up with some interesting spellings. Anyway, I spelled it out for him a couple of times, I understand that the spelling is not as common. As he is writing my name down, he mumbles, “Ghetto.” In a level that he can hear and put his ass on notice that I heard him, I said, “It’s biblical.” He looked up at me in shock. Yeah, I heard you punk. If you knew what you thought you did, you would not have responded the way you did. If you had any sense, you would have known that it is from the bible. I almost did not pay for my drink.

If I was a different type of person, I would have caused a damn scene…
