Melanin Queen Ayesha Karim.

I just got my very own Melanin Queen coffee cup. I will make herbal tea and hot chocolate in the cup. My favorite herbal tea is Apple Cinnamon Celestial Seasonings hot tea. I also love Dunkin Donuts hot chocolate. I am going to buy Chock-full-of-nuts coffee for my kitchen when I live on my own. I am going to buy it at Shop Rite. I’m not kidding. I got myself an HBCU sweatshirt thinking of two young African American men I became friends with in my early 30s Jared and Rome. I thought of Mike Rosidivito too the Indian guy I dated that told me he gets very dark in the summer like I do. I feel like I am such an adult now. Everything from the four pictures my uncle Colin took of me with my new Samsung phone of me in my motorcycle hat and sexy 18/20 Ashley Stewart dress (without my eyeglasses) that is a bit see through, yes! I just bought myself some things from I have a skirt suit I need to return to the local JC Penny and get a Merchandise Credit card with the refund on it to buy some more things for myself. I love me. I am Ayesha Karim. I am very special. I am so happy I can laugh and be able to share my cool ideas with all my Caucasian friends at NAMI Mercer. Akavar coined the phrase Kwanzaa memorabilia that’s appropriate. To me at 36 that’s so cool! Oh and I am getting a lot out of WRAP class. This is my third time taking it. I want to take it again soon after the class is over in late April. Geneaology is the only secret. We’re all a little mixed up. Libby would say that’s true I know. She’s a helpful friend.
