25 Powerful Reasons to Improve Your Knowledge by KRS-ONE

KRS-One warned us that the conversation he wanted to have, was intended to be an 8 hour discussion. However, he jokingly promised that he would condense it to 5 hours. As the audience laughed, you could hear people yell out “take your time”, as he prepared to drop knowledge and information on the entire crowd.

We were ready. Hungry to be intellectually fed and moved in some way. Spirits and souls heated up on this cold January evening, as legendary hip hop artist KRS-One, also known as “Teacha” graced the stage of Virginia State University for a free public lecture event.

6 Amazing Reasons to Love a Trip to South Africa

Holidays are finally over and it’s an amazing time to start checking things off that infamous bucket list. Who doesn’t love taking some time off and exploring new destinations? One area of the world that is beginning to boom in tourism is the southern half of Africa. Most of the world’s population have a fairly flawed image of southern Africa, where the perception is that people still dwell in tribes and hunt lion with spears. The reality is that South Africa is an area with cosmopolitan cities, fabulous wildlife parks and beaches that rival any in the world. Below are just 6 Amazing Reasons to Love a Trip to South Africa & the many locations you need to consider when planning a trip to the south of Africa:

“How to Be A Fabulous Mother To All Boys” by I'esha GaptoothDiva
How to Be a Fabulous Mother to All Boys

I’m the type of woman who loves pink, won’t hesitate to buy makeup and a nice pair of heels, and I’m a proud admitted Beyoncé Stan. Point Blank! I’m a girly girl to the tenth degree, but don’t put me in a box because I do like the rough, gritty guys in my life, I’m just not about to break a nail to keep up with them. So while I was laying on the ultrasound table, listening to the nurse inform me that God chose to bless me with yet another boy child (this will be my third), I was thinking to myself “How to Be A Fabulous Mother To All Boys”.

“How to Be A Fabulous Mother To All Boys” by I'esha GaptoothDiva

In my life I know a handful of women who are the mothers to all boys, or mostly boys. I wouldn’t say these women are the shining examples of “fabulousity” or “diva”, at least not my level of it anyway. It’s not shade at all, when I say that I love to get dolled up, I enjoy the pink and pretty things, and my playlist although lately has been riddled with trap music (don’t judge me), has and always will be filled with the divas of the microphone. I got by with two boys and the slight glimmer of hope that this child was a girl. I was even calling my tiny fetus “she” and “her” when in conversation, just certain that I couldn’t be having another boy…. Again. However, thoughts of looking tired and worn out plagued my mind, when she said “It’s a boy!” I immediately thought about that bitter mother-in-law, we all know and love. My mind raced to that mom who doesn’t dress up, unless it’s at funerals or weddings, because the parenting of all boys made her forget that she was in fact a lady underneath her son’s sweatpants and her man’s t-shirts. I thought about buying $200 sneakers times 3, in about four years because boys grow up big and fast, making it almost impossible for me to afford a manicure full-set, a bottle of foundation, or even a box of tampons. I nearly lost my mind!
