It Is What It Is!

I had so much to say about Valentine's Day. I had a well thought out blog in my head. But my body has totally shut down and I've been in bed all day. Truly all I can say is that there's no fancy dinner or gift worth your life. If he can't respect you enough to use a condom then maybe you should find you someone who does. Instead of spending all your time, ladies, concerned about what he wants, spend that time thinking about what you really want in a man. I hope you have a fun but safe weekend.
In my second "Day In A Life" video I share a little of myself as I have been all day. It's not what I want for myself at this moment, but It Is What It Is!! And Please don't forget to support my video project by subscribing to my YouTube Channel.. #IcannotdoitAlone
