There is no secret to anyone that knows me that I love hip-hop. I do! And my favorite song to be amped to (aside from Swagga Like Us off T.I.’s Paper Trail), Wipe Me Down, by Lil Boosie! I promise that it is! I don’t know what about it makes me so happy, and wishing for my 20’s again, but it does!
With that reflection is mind, I had an idea for my miniseries for the month of May:
The title ‘Thinking I’m Grown’ is what I was told when I was growing up, especially after I started to express myself through what I wore or how I wanted to wear my hair. I cannot tell you how many times I heard “Oh, you think you grown?” I had no idea what that mean–and truly, looking age 40 in the face, I still don’t necessarily know! But, I’m about to take a stab at it.
This series starts Saturday, May 3rd. Like the miniseries in the past, there will be one post every Saturday until the cessation of the series on Saturday, May 31. Here are the topics:
May 3: Think I’m Grown: Shoulders (How I Stand)
May 10: Think I’m Grown: Chest (My Body And How I Accept It)
May 17: Think I’m Grown: Pants (Fashion and Style)
May 24: Think I’m Grown: Shoes (How I Move In The World)
May 31: Think I’m Grown: Wipe Me Down (Self-Acceptance)
See what I did there? You’re a smart cookie, I know you did. Make sure you follow this space. There is more, so much more to come.
