What Has Trump Done Now? 

Earlier this week, the president did something I've been waiting for him to do. He announced his intention to cut the Pell grant program, along with various other cuts.  Politico first reported the story, but I first saw it here. HIV programs and the National Institutes of Health are also on the chopping block.  Unfortunately, there's... Continue Reading →

Rather You Than Me – Review 

Rick Ross' last couple of releases have been forgettable, but Rather You Than Me is a return to form. It's the best Ross album in 5 years.  The album opens strongly with "Apple of My Eye". Ross is a master of the soulful, introspective track, and it shows here. Raphael Saadiq provides another amazing feature. ... Continue Reading →

I was bullied for over a decade but pageantry has helped me increase my self-confidence!

From a friend.

Miss Piedmont 2017 Blog


Throughout my years in elementary, middle, and high school I experienced bullying every day. This bullying ranged from being jumped in a bathroom, having trash stuffed in my mouth, having people dump food on my plate during lunch and call me anorexic and/or bulimic, etc. I rode the bus on and off throughout school and almost every time I would get home I would cry…sometimes for hours. To this day I can vividly remember crying on the bus after school, crying on my mom’s white staircase, and of course crying in bed. To describe how bullying accurately made me feel is almost impossible because in many ways it is indescribable. I experienced both physical and verbal assaults but the verbal assaults had longer lasting impressions. When you are bullied at school, you bring it home with you and most of the time torture yourself…constantly trying to figure if I…

Iron Fist – Episode 13 Review

For some reason, this episode opens with Meachum plots. I don't want too much of this in a season finale. Danny is the star so let's only focus on him. I saw the Stan Lee poster. *As an aside, Lee's health is not good. I hope he pulls through, but he's pushing to a century.... Continue Reading →

Iron Fist – Episode 12 Review

This episode is all about trust...and distrust. I actually liked the Meachum family drama this time around. Jessica Stroup performed admirably. Once again, the women are consistently the best performers on the show. Sacha Dhawan is great as Davos too. Bakuto proves his villain bonafides. Purple Man is still the best villain of the Netflix...

Iron Fist – Episode 11 Review

Episode 11 starts off well. I had the feeling that I would like this episode quite a bit. And I was right. I'm a fan of this episode. It doesn't feel like I'm close to the finale though. I'm a fan of good flashbacks, and this episode has them. I honestly wouldn't have minded an... Continue Reading →

Iron Fist – Episode 10 Review 

A big issue I have with this show is that it seems to lack focus. Maybe that's not the correct term. It's not sharp. It's trying, but that's not enough.  Anyway, this episode is about Danny trying to learn more about a mysterious possible ally. It seems as though there is no trust to be... Continue Reading →

Iron Fist – Episode 9

Some of the early events in this episode are unbelievable, and not in a good way. I can't imagine the police not being called.  I'd also think Matt Murdock would've been called, but that's just me. These shows are mostly independent, even when it doesn't make sense.  On the corporate side, I don't understand a... Continue Reading →
