this doesnt even feel like december it feels like a really long extension of november
Before she became known as the “replacement” mom on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Daphne Maxwell Reid was the first African American woman named Homecoming Queen at Northwestern University and the first Black woman to grace the cover of Glamour Magazine.
I met her at a NU homecoming event. she shared with us the racism she experienced at our school. how her first roommate saw her walk into the dorm room and stormed out because she didn’t want to live with a nigger. how when she won the crown for homecoming, the president of the university refused to place it on her head. and how when she walked on stage no one clapped for her, it was complete silence except for the black students.
Northwestern’s history is very ugly and I’m glad that I was a part of the legacy of black students that fought to make changes at NU
That, my friends is what its like to be “the first”.
i never understood how in movies the parents didnt believe in Santa but he was actually real like who the fuck did the parents think put the presents under the tree like what

I was sitting on sea ice when I heard a little peep over my shoulder.
I am so frustrated. I told you guys about my mom and how sick she is. She had a stroke a few days ago and every day since she has gotten worse. The doctors don’t think she’ll make it. I am frustrated because I am in Alabama at school and I can’t find a way to Florida to be with her. I have asked friends for rides but they can’t because of finals and I have no gas money to offer them. I can’t get a Greyhound ticket either because it cost to much. I don’t know what to do. My father is being petty and won’t even keep me updated or come and get me.
You guys please pray for her and pray I find a way to her. If you can spare it could you donate a little money for me to make it to her. I swear if I have enough I will take a picture of me and her or something as proof I am being honest. I am so desperate to get to her right now.
My donation button is on the side bar of my blog. Please pray for her. I love her so much and I can’t bare the thought of losing her.
