So I rant and rave about Spelman College and my Caribbean friends that I have made in the AUC. My college experience was a memorable one and I honestly can’t say that it has really ended in the sense that the same people I have met through being a Spelmanite and now a Spelman Woman have not really gone anywhere, seeing as they are all pretty much still based in Atlanta. LOL. Nonetheless homecoming for me is an excuse to enjoy the music that I love on a whole other level and ALL day.
We live in a world that is more connected than ever before. Not only via the internet and global awareness but citizens of different nations are becoming residents of other nations in an effort to achieve their dreams and goals. We as a race, humans, are an extremely interesting one. The cultures that make up the different regions of the world add to that factor. Our difference is what truly makes us an amazing race. But sometimes it is our ignorance of our differences that hinders our ability to unite as one race and live in harmony.
Trust. Depending on who you are or whom you are dealing with it may be hard to give out or hard to earn. I like to think people are guarded with reason, that people are just cold-hearted just to be so. But then there may be people out there who genuinely get joy and pleasure from making people do the absolute most with no intentions of giving them what it is they are working so hard to achieve, their trust. This post is not to talk down on those who engage in those time of trust games, I wanted to share my take on moving on from relationships whether good or bad.
