    “I was not flirting with you…”

    “I was not flirting with you.”   He says this for the second time.   Honestly, if you were not flirting with me, you wouldn’t have said it… twice. That reveals guilt. And guilty you are, but there is no jury for this kind of trial. This is the court case I find myself in a lot of the times lately. It seems as if all of my cases are dismissed. I do not have enough evidence or grounds to feel the way I feel. Yet I will still speak my truth… This time, “I am not guilty!” I’m talking about the case of the male-female interactions and the lack…

    If You Can’t Let It Go, It’s Best Not To Keep It.

    latianna's world blog post

    Such an important phrase that may shock you to hear. I made this because I do not want you to feel good about it. To be offended or uncomfortable is a great thing, because it requires you to reflect and make changes that will build you, or destroy you. I hope this video cuts to the core of you to truly reflect and see what you need to let go in your life and move forward. Only then will you be able to experience true freedom, authentic identity, blessings and fulfill life purpose. Time to believe in yourself. Be inspired by this message. Any thoughts?

    Top 10 photoshoot locations in Thailand

    Hi Friends,  Thailand is a great place to obtain a wide range of photo ops. I went to Thailand in 2017 for a study abroad class, and I stayed with my classmates in Bangkok.  We had our own personal guide: Dr. Paul and his wife Dr. Nop. Within a few days, we saw so many things on top of going to mental health facilities (click here to see that blog post). I think it’s important to know someone in the country you’re traveling to, because you will get the most out of your stay! Here are some highlights I recommend for food, photo ops and sightseeing per Dr’s orders 🙂…

    How Thailand uses Mental Health to Heal.

    ได้อย่างเสียอย่าง (dai yang sia yang) Translation: You have to lose something to get another thing. Meaning: You can’t make an omelette without breaking any eggs Thailand’s values of honor and hospitality led me to tears. I wondered, “How can a nation that does not have mental health budget give so much to us?” It felt undeserving to receive the love and compassion when I traveled to Thailand to study abroad program from California State University Long Beach. I took this class in May of 2017. We visited many facilities, each one very unique, yet very similar to mental health in America. In order to break the stigma, we must acknowledged…

    Thirty Four-Ward

    Well, I have been officially 34 for a week now, and I feel not as much changed. All I can think about was the last 10 years of my life and the amazing things that have surfaced to lead me in this direction of blogging, fashion, and theatre arts. From working as a nanny and a private investigator (this will take another post to describe lol), to going back to graduate school and processing a lot of pain and trauma, I feel as if things are moving forward. Becoming a participator truly is better than being a spectator! I just wanted to share my birthday plans: Shopping at Miss Lola…
