Woman Work by Maya Angelou

Woman Work by Maya Angelou

I’ve got the children to tend

The clothes to mend

The floor to mop

The food to shop

Then the chicken to fry

The baby to dry

I got company to feed

The garden to weed

I’ve got shirts to press

The tots to dress

The can to be cut

I gotta clean up this hut

Then see about the sick

And the cotton to pick.

Shine on me, sunshine

Rain on me, rain

Fall softly, dewdrops

And cool my brow again.

Storm, blow me from here

With your fiercest wind

Let me float across the sky

‘Til I can rest again.

Fall gently, snowflakes

Cover me with white

Cold icy kisses and

Let me rest tonight.

Sun, rain, curving sky

Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone

Star shine, moon glow

You’re all that I can call my own.


As I Grew Older by Langston Hughes

As I Grew Older by Langston Hughes

It was a long time ago.

I have almost forgotten my dream.

But it was there then,

In front of me,

Bright like a sun—

My dream.

And then the wall rose,

Rose slowly,


Between me and my dream.

Rose until it touched the sky—

The wall.


I am black.

I lie down in the shadow.

No longer the light of my dream before me,

Above me.

Only the thick wall.

Only the shadow.

My hands!

My dark hands!

Break through the wall!

Find my dream!

Help me to shatter this darkness,

To smash this night,

To break this shadow

Into a thousand lights of sun,

Into a thousand whirling dreams

Of sun!

7 Things to do on Sunday Night

I was sitting here in my back yard watching Orange is the new Black on Netflix and  a thought came to mind. ‘Oh my goodness, I have school tomorrow.’ So instead of getting out my clothes and taking a nighttime shower, I have decided to blog

7 Things to do Sunday Night

Clean out your closet until you are too tired to even see another hanger

imageAh this will bring back memories that you just might not want to remember. Like those ugly shirt(s) that you wasted money on and will never wear in public again. You’ll try to make use of them by wearing them around the house, but no, no no those shirts got to go.


Read a good book…correction GREAT book


Sitting down and reading a book for any amount of time is good for your body and mind. Unless you sit there and read for thirteen hours straight.Goodness please don’t do that. So instead of stressing about tomorrow and all the stuff you’ll have to do, why not sit down and relax for a bit. I don’t know about you but I’m a sucker for a good dystopian novel.

Watch your favorite 2000’s movie


Yes, from Bring It On to those hopeless Twilight movies, we’re talking about the best of the 00’s . Why wait for the next RomCom to come out when you can just warm up some Cranberry juice and pull up Netflix?


Go to your local coffee shop

images (24) I know that coffee kinda defeats the purpose of nighttime and sleep, but the shop is still a cool place to be. Because of its comfortable interior, its a nice place to get social, eat, and relax.  And there is usually free Wi-Fi there, so duh, it’s  the perfect place to be.

Go out with some friends or family

Diner again

Sundays nights are considered one of the most stressful nights of the week, because people tend to worry about tomorrow and the rest of the week. Having some friends around can really change a persons mood. So whether you guys go to a Diner, Drive-thru, or just sitting at home talking and drinking warm cranberry juice, being with them is probably one of the best things you can do with your Sunday night.

Or you could just blog

shrugHey, when in dought, blog it out 😉

The Types of Teachers You Usually Get in High School

  Side note;Hello. School starts in a couple of weeks and I read the news about teachers complaining about getting underpaid. So from these two start offs I came up with The Types of Teachers You Usually Get in High School . This all based off of my point of view, but when school starts I’ll just take a poll on teachers from the students and update this post…


Some are lazy, passionate,or just OCD driven. Yep, you guested it we’re talking about teachers. Thanks to today’s school system teachers aren’t the ones who can make you or beak you. It’s you who does the making and/or breaking now. So now and days you can’t come home with that report card saying that your teacher hates you. Thanks America for taking away our one excuse. But anyways here are the 3 types of teachers that I have been stuck with multiple times.


1)The Power Struggle

shutterstock_16194385_crop380wGoodness! Just thinking about this one makes me irritated. The Power Struggle spends more time trying to show that she/he has power over us than she/he does teaching We don’t care, if that one kid walked in late. Talk to him after class! The rest of us don’t want to hear a lecture on how walking in late is a distraction to the class because by then you’re being an even bigger distraction.

Average Class Grade: C

Usually: English Teachers


WHAT-YOU-PASSIONATE-ABOUTThese are the teachers that really get to you and inspire you to be a better student. They talk about how much they love a certain subject. And about great life can be if you just do what you love. They make the world seem possible in every single way. Seriously we need more teachers like Mr./Mrs.Passionate. 

Average Class Grade: B+/A+

Usually: Science and Math Teachers


images (26)Yes, every kid who isn’t there wishes that they were. This is the teacher who lets you on your phone and talk to your friends after you finish your work. The teachers who throw class parties just cause its the end of the semester. The ones who incorporates watching Hunger Games into the lesson plan. Every kid needs a class with a cool teacher just to unwind and learn at the same time.

Average Class Grade: C+/B

Usually: Science Teachers
