In case anyone was confused, this is my king. 
I get so many asks daily trash-talking me on the whole “I thought you only dated white boys” front. First of all, none of the guys I’ve ever dated are boys, they’re men. Secondly, I’ve never, ever made the decision of who I date based off a skin tone. I’ve been lucky in this lifetime to get to experience love of all colors, shapes, sizes, and genders. (Yes, I date women too.)
The thing about Jason that made him stand out (besides that gorgeous smile) is that he told me what I was before I was aware. We met on a bus, and I gave him my phone number. NEITHER of us knew where that would put us. But the next day after spending a night just texting he said it, he said “Good morning my queen.” I’d never heard those words in my life but I just knew from that single text that he was different. 
People praise us daily on how happy we look but it isn’t about that. We have our closed door disgruntles and we call each other names (Only during video games) but I know that no matter where life leads me, no matter if we stay together, get married or break up tomorrow, he did something.
He didn’t make me a queen. He found my crown, dusted it off and placed it back on my head. He reminded me of the loyalty I’d lost track of when I was swimming in lost standards, broken hearts and forgotten ambition. He renewed that.
Do you really think I’d trade the man who straightens my hair, cuddles me every night, sings with me, sits up late at night Skyping despite the fact that we live four blocks away from each other, and accepts the fact that I belong solely to myself for the ever-changing respect of people who have no idea what it’s like to spend a second in my shoes?
No offense, but I don’t care how “disappointed” or “ashamed” you are that I “crossed over” and chose to spend my time with someone who gives me everything I didn’t know I deserved. 
tldr; I’m happy and this is my king. don’t like it, no one asked you to look. It’s almost been a year, get over it. No matter what happens to us, where we are in life, we will always have a part of each other.

THAT TIME I NEVER APPLIED TO MY DREAM SCHOOL

THAT TIME I NEVER APPLIED TO MY DREAM SCHOOL

intimidating much?

intimidating much?

A packet. A packet came in a large envelope that held my entire life inside it. I had experienced brief trysts with others, but this? This was real. It was genuine and heartfelt, every move towards this goal was sincere and had the best intentions behind it.

Though I was smart and got good enough grades, college wasn’t in the forefront of my mind when I’d gotten to high school.…

Hey I don’t know if you’ll post this or if this was a stretch but I was accepted into Parsons which is my dream school but the tuition is crazy. I created a fundraiser for it and I was wondering if you could post it and if anyone see’s this and reblogs this that would mean the world to me. Help a gay black female get into the college of her dreams . I know it’s not what you usually post but please and thank you if you do! (:
