It would be impossible to be a force for positivity. No matter how many people view me as such, I know that I’m not a hero. I’m not a sparkling force for all that is good in the world. I can be angry, I can despair, and be at the brink of giving up and yes I’ll have pink hair doing it.Read More
Cleric - Yukijoro
Inspired by my academic pursuit and personal roots with psychology, mental health, and healing Yukijoro is the second facet I named. The myth of the fantasy creature/spirit and ice deity spoke to me when I read about, "the woman who died in winter". After experiencing and overcoming some of severe trials of my own, I often felt like I was trapped in ice, looking towards a positive and beautiful world. So the frozen healer holding a mirror is one of my perceptions of self. My stronger, but perhaps melancholic, muse helped me through loneliness and isolation by reshaping my writing voice and emotive style. The focus of my writing style under the influence of my inner muse yukijoro is "mentality" and the overall reflection of the emotions that lie deep within. My hope is to process the life lived and the life I hold now. Of all my writing voices, this is the most true to the me now, I am still the woman who is healing from her winter. This facet has the most presence on my blog, as she is the one reflecting on my journey and experiences.
You can catch this guide on my main blog sharing my wisdom, experiences, and reflections.
Working towards more fulfilling self-love and exploration is the goal of all my writing, and why I explore how I navigate my life. If you feel you need help building an emotive goal, you can now email or message me at your discretion. - E&HS: Setting Emotive Goals
A Note from Jade
These glimpses of my life like chapters of breathing memoir vary from topic to topic. Some are heavy, and some are light please keep in mind that these are moments from my life past, present, and dreams for the future. -Jade
If I wrote a monologue on the troubles of proclaiming toxicity and ghosting friends I would end it shouting “Communicate to me better than old R&B love songs.” When I reflect on friendships past, I think about what went wrong, and the solid unifying theme is COMMUNICATION.Read More
“I work under the assumption that I’m not good enough, and if I don’t do more, I won’t get anywhere in life. It’s a nagging feeling that I’m failing at where I am supposed to be in life. What does 24 on the cusp of 25 looks like for a Black Femme with an unused bachelors look like?”Read More
If you know someone like me, with that “Damn-they-did-that-Itis” send them my way, I’ve got a lot of love I can send their way. A little encouragement can go a long damn way for creatives.Read More
I am capable of courageous conversations. I can step outside of my anxiety, pride, and address a problem. I don’t regret initiating the conversation about my salary; it meant I valued myself and what I have to offer high. I need to remember that being the kawaii boss will have its up and downs and that speaking up or against something has its reward.Read More
Giving up is the feeling you begin to cherish when it feels like you're surrounded by walls and nothing is getting better
