Can I be a chameleon?

Can I be a chameleon?

“It’s like you’re a chameleon,” said my nail technician. She was selling me the dream of multichrome grabbers. I wasn’t convinced but since she’s never steered me wrong, I went with it. After a few days of marveling at how my nails change according to how the light hits them,...

Radio daze

April 3. My one year radioversary came and went last month and I couldn't bring myself to write about it. If you know me, you know radio has been the best thing to ever happen to me - and I've had some pretty epic things happen to me. Over the...

New month, same anxiety

 What I've been doing? Oh, just sweating about how I'm going to take my ideas out of my head and onto the screen in your hand and/or in your house. Wish me luck.

I’m on Peak Time!

An African Soundcloud?

Can you remember when you first used Soundcloud? I can't. But I know that it's been a part of my life for a very long time. It was often a treasure trove for me when I was stuck at a desk in a job that I was quarter past bored...

The cost to be the boss, or just yourself, really

I'm a recovering people-pleaser. There. I said it. In the past six months, though, I've been forcing myself to be ok with potentially making someone upset. I've been forcing myself to be comfortable in my own skin. To not hide my double chin. You've seen my InstaStories. You know what...
