Richmond, my 2nd Home

Trips to Richmond are my favorite, as you know if you’ve been following my blog. Maybe I love Richmond excessively, which isn’t too healthy, but I lived there for four years so it’s definitely got a huge place in my heart. I visited in early April this year, and I want to share my good feelings and way more information than needed with you all. I’m trying to catch up in posting since I’ve been MIA for so long ๐Ÿ˜› bear with me. bare with me. bird with me.
A morning run with my bff, Erin, at Hollywood Cemetery. It was my first time there, and it was BEAUTIFUL. She’s in the National Guard so she’s super fit, and I’m in the National Donut Club, which isn’t a real thing, so I’m super slow. Look how beautiful we look with no makeup on! Ahh, naturaaal. I love the feeling.
After our run/walk (lol because I’m awfully out of shape), we got made up to spend our day adventuring. Red is one of my favorite colors to wear, as many of my photos show. I’ll wear it every day, I don’t care!
I love her because she, like me, is down to look like a fool for our own amusement. We do the most ridiculous things together. She’s so down, I can’t even handle it sometimes. I’m like, “Erin, let’s make a movie!” and he response is always “HECK YAH!” Ahh, I’m so thankful for good friends.ย 
Lunch at Strawberry Street Cafe with the girlies. Mariam is too cute.

Nadiah and Sameen ready to chow down on brunch at the cafe :)) love them!ย 
I love Karl so much – he’s one of the most talented people I know. He does it all. He’s always there for me when I need a badass photo to be taken.

TORIAN is one of my favorite people at VCU. This time when I saw him, he literally made me cry my eyes out from laughing so hard at some pranks we did in our early VCU days. I think of him as a tough critic, but I value his opinion so much when it comes to art of any form, especially film.

Robalu Gibsunย is my favorite poet in the entire world. He is the reason I first got into and started to love slam poetry. I just want to write down everything he says in my moleskin journal and keep it forever.
Jessika with a “k” was my resident and now she’s an RA :’) I’m so proud of her for her hard work to get the position and maintain it. She’s going places, and I can’t wait to see where. IGGY is my Social Work buddy for life, even though we both decided we probably don’t want to do Social Work for the rest of our lives. I met him the summer of 2009 during our VCU orientation. We sat by each other while picking classes for the upcoming semester and since then, we’ve slacked off in more classes together than you can think of before getting rejected together by Teach for America and deciding “F*** this Sh**”
this is how dorky I look when I laugh

Find me a reason to go back, please.
