Time for a change

Posted in starchiksix

Every month, I start to write this particular post. I keep asking myself to wait and see if my feelings change. And month after month, nothing has changed. I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna touch on the racial tensions in this world today. In recent times, there has been some obvious attention to black lives matter. It makes everyone get a little weird. Before I go on, I want to be sure no one is offended. My intentions are to provide my opinions and move along. Simply, to get it off my chest. I’m a bit of a bitch and…

New Journeys

Posted in starchiksix

My baby started high school this month.  Obviously she’s not a baby, but she’s MY baby. My parents were and are great parents but never gave me advice. They more or less threatened my life and told me to be good and graduate. Here’s my advice I gave leading up to her first day of high school. Be open-minded. There are a ton of opportunities in high school. Some that you may not be accustomed to. Strongly consider them as the may help mold the way to your success. Stay focused. There are distractions. Friends and boys. I am willing…

My hero, my everything

Posted in starchiksix

In honor of Fathers Day, I decided to write about my Dad. I recently lost him but it wasn’t until after he was gone, that I realized how much more special he was. My Dad was incredibly smart. He invested money wisely. Secured his future. He never went over the top trying to get rich. Just enough so he could be comfortable. He was never greedy. He had acres and acres of land that he sold to family and made sure there was enough left for his children. He advised myself and family and friends on how to buy stocks, invest…

I normally skip over Go Fund Me accounts and any other fundraisers for that matter. It has become an crutch for many people. Oh, I can’t pay my rent, I wanna take a trip, etc. Don’t get me wrong I know it’s hard out here for a pimp, or nurse, teacher, mechanic…. You get the gist of what I’m saying. It wasn’t until the last two weeks that I started reading them and contemplating donating. Today, I read a story of a young teenager who died of a massive heart attack. He left behind his mom, a single mother, and…

The Best Intentions

Posted in starchiksix

I had a whole different post that I was going to post, but I picked my daughter up today and things changed. My daughter just started 8th grade basketball. I am so happy to be a part of it even though I think the coach is actually a seventh grader. My daughter walks out with her friend every day. The friend has to wait 15-20 minutes for her parents to get there. Last week, my daughter divulged that her aunt passed away and they have her cousin living with her. When the aunt passed the custody paperwork wasn’t complete, which…

Friendship

Posted in starchiksix

As I have gotten older, friendships have started to mean more to me. As a kid, it was nice to have a bunch of friends. Sleepovers, play dates, someone to pass notes back and forth to. That was fine for then, but now things are different. In highschool, I lost a lot of friends over a boy. I met this guy outside of school. We ended up working together. Mind you we were all of 17 and 18. What I didn’t know about this boyfriend was he was a womanizer. Come let’s be honest. Even at 30, 40, etc women…

New Year, New Me

Posted in starchiksix

So, I’m trying this new thing for 2016. Learning patience, to be kinder and losing some weight. Blah blah blah. Same ol’ crap. But this time. I started before the new year thinking it may help jump start some new year freshness and good juju. Good idea, right?! Nice try, starchiksix. Nice try. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got off to a fantastic start. I lost 3lbs in the last 3 weeks. I have increased my water intake. I only eat veggies at lunch. Moving around more. I’m eating smaller portions but come 5. I’m shoving my face with whatever protein filled…

Dear Baby Mama

Posted in starchiksix

First off I just want to say, I struggle with my post each month. Not because I have nothing to say, but because I run my mouth and ALWAYS have something to say. This month, I decided to write about a struggle I’m having. Baby Mama drama. I have been with my fiance 7 years. He’s not a man whore, he simply had not had the best of luck before me. Two kids with two different women who can be….well straight bitches. Sometimes they can be cool, I’ll give them that. I wanted to write letters to them to say…

My Life Is Changing

Posted in starchiksix

I had a work meeting very recently. The owners of our company revealed our company, in so many words, has been bought out. This has been life altering in the few hours that I’ve had this knowledge. Let’s be honest, I don’t think I’m ready for change. I can hardly pick out what scrubs I want to wear for the day, to wear a wig or not, or even what to have for dinner on most days. I feel like I can’t breathe. I can’t concentrate. By 8:06, it was fuck this shit o’clock. We are told about raises and better benefits. Hooray. There’s some laughter about drug tests and how we have 6 months to get…

Bye Felecia!

Posted in starchiksix

Fear is a crazy thing. It changes our thought, behaviors. It’ll also cause you to not use your own master bathroom for 3 months. My name is Starchiksix, and I have Musophobia. Maybe I should rephrase that. I only have it indoors. For those of you who don’t know, musophobia- is the fear of mice. I love animals. Just not in my house. Over the summer, we were awakened by screams by our daughters. They were yelling, “THERE’S A RAT IN OUR ROOM.” My fiancé gets up and tries to shoo it out as I am I standing on our…
