RVA Blues.

RVA Blues.

Everyone expects to graduate from college after years of focus and dedication and land their dream job right away. And although it seems like the idea of it is, nothing short of deserved, it usually isn’t the case for most people. It definitely wasn’t like that for me. I chose a major that was interesting to me and and fun to learn, but when I got into the workplace I found that maybe it really wasn’t my thing. I tried it. I tried management, I tried sales, I tried Human Resources, I tried customer service, I tried restaurant, I tried recruiting. I tried writing.

Since college, I feel like I’ve been bouncing around everywhere. From town to town, job to job. And now I’m stuck in rut because I feel like I know what I want to pursue, but just not how to pursue it fully.

Until now, I was kind of embarrassed that I’m in a new role like every few months, or going back to serving every time I quit a place. It was starting to become a joke where my managers were betting how long it would be until I’d be back again. But aside from that, every job has potential to teach you skills that you’ll be able to take with you to any job.

When I look back, every one of those jobs taught me something vital to my success in anything. I learned how to be administrative, I learned how to interact with people, be prompt,  I learned how to manage, how to pitch myself, there’s literally a million things. If pursuing writing means I need to have these things in order to be able to start a free lancing business, I already have those skills so why not. Skills are instilled.  You bring whatever skills you have, or acquire, to the table in anything you go after.

I got to talk to an old professor recently, Dr. Mier. He checks in on us from time to time. I was telling him about how I’m going through this post- collegiate blues. What stood out to me, aside from his new consulting firm, was how he just told me that it sounds like I’m doing great, and that it sounds like I’m figuring it out. It’s true though, I figured out that I really do like writing so why shouldn’t I pursue it? I just need to keep telling myself that I have what it takes to be successful in running my own business. And him starting a consulting firm makes me realize that you should just go after whatever makes you happy. Where do you derive happiness?

I realized I shouldn’t be all that embarrassed. I don’t see the point in spending time in any career that you find early on that you just cannot see yourself doing for 30, 40 years. Like no, that’s just not how I am. I’m absolutely not knocking anyone who does that, I’m just saying that I personally just cannot imagine hating my job until I retire. I derive happiness from staying intrigued and busy and challenged, but unbothered and autonomous and entertained, all at the same time. And I think that many of these things could come with working for myself, it could be very rewarding and fun!

The post collegiate blues can be hard to go through and get over. Shifting your main focus from studying and going to class, to bills and chasing your dreams kind of seems like night and day. Just remember to chase the things in life that you’re drawn to do, and things that make you happy doing it. And even if you absolutely hate a job or have hated a job and never want to look back at it, it’s never a total loss. You’d be surprised how much more prepared you will feel in life if you just look back on jobs or on any negative experience in life with a positive mindset and realize the gains.

Well, I’m back in RVA now and this is the first time in the three times that I’ve been back that I actually feel like I know what I’m doing, thank God for that. There’s art everywhere, the view is good, the city lights are bright and there’s a mural outside my window that makes me feel like I’m getting a new chance. The energy is inspiring, it feels like the perfect place to start over, and this time with a purpose.


Mirror, Mirror.

Mirror, Mirror.

“You need to  surround yourself with people and things that you vibe with or that make you happy and focus on them. Always. Forget everyone and everything else that doesn’t.”

In church this week, the Pastor preached about how sometimes we all need to just take a step back and assess ourselves. Assess the way we smell, the way we come off to others. He said that often times we wonder why people sometimes don’t want to be around us, be our friend etc., and how we end up blaming other people for the vibe that we are creating and giving off to others.

I can most definitely say that energies and vibes are all around us and I’d also say that I’ve always been receptive to the vibes of others. I’m sure that many other people can say the same. Have you ever had that one person whose spirit always seems to uplift you? Or that someone in your life who manages to drain you of your energy? Or that person who always seems to rub you the wrong way, but you just can’t figure out why? Bad vibes. Its almost like they do have a strange stench, and we find ourselves unknowingly turning up our noses and bending up our faces in response to someones presence.

Being back in Richmond has me thinking a lot about college and the person I was during my years in school. All I can say is that I guess I wasn’t fully prepared to start becoming some one else in a place that felt so unfamiliar, and even though I did have some really good moments it was hard to be in a time where it felt like I was constantly juggling my life. I was working, doing work- study, trying to get some sleep, get good grades, trying to get to class and pass them, and I was around people who I desperately wanted to understand me. I was emotional and my presence wasn’t always a good one, because I barely even understood myself. As a result, I had a vibe that that I disliked, and the people around me probably disliked it too. Because no one wants to be around a constant negative energy, it’s too much of a burden to bare.

When I first started blogging I wrote a post about choosing your vibe and finding ways to protect it, but I feel like the first step is absolutely taking an outside look at yourself and figuring out if you can even bare your own energy. Sometimes the energy you give off is a result of your own mind and circumstances, but you need to ask yourself if you’re that Negative Nancy of the group. Are you that person who stinks? If so, then you need to  surround yourself with people and things that you vibe with or that make you happy and focus on them. Always.

Forget everyone and everything else that doesn’t. 


When Blossoms Bloom.

When Blossoms Bloom.

Isn’t the sight of Cherry Blossoms so reminiscent of the season changing? Whenever I see them I get that familiar feeling of May, flowers, warm breeze, and warm weather approaching. Spring fever! I think I’ve got it, and I’m not ashamed. I just want to open up my windows, get out for some fresh air, and breathe easy!


When I saw this whole street lined at the curb with these beautiful trees, I was in awe because I love cherry blossoms they’re, nostalgic to me. They remind me of walking around Rahway as a teenager, down Cherry Street, near the train station and by my old dance studio. I was mostly shocked to see them here though, right in the middle of an area that is full of warehouse apartments, pavement, and brick walls. Not too many trees and shrubs. I mean I’ve seen some cacti around, but who doesn’t love flowers and the way they can light up the aesthetic of a city neighborhood?

This day was more to me than just going out to get some pretty pictures, though. I wanted to get these pictures for my blog so that I could share this experience. I had planned to go do a little shoot, but when I got up this Sunday morning it was overcast, it was cold, I was short on time because my mom was coming to visit and plus I wanted to go to Church. Immediately, I started thinking of every excuse not to go do this and just stay in bed, because the idea of it just seemed like more of an annoyance at this point.  But then I started thinking of those episodes of Top Model and how even when the models had just came from traveling abroad, they’re tired, its cold. They JUST DO IT! And that’s what sets them apart from everyone else that just continues to dream.

I wanted to capture this moment while they’re still in bloom as a reminder that the seasons are ever changing, and when you start having second thoughts about the things you have to do and sacrifice in order to make your dreams come true, just do it! The blossoms bloom even when its still cold and wintery, they just know their time. Your time is now.


Sunshine Blogger Award #2

Sunshine Blogger Award #2

WOW I’m super excited to have been nominated AGAIN for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Big THANK YOU to RudyMariee from Visionsandgiggles, for giving me this opportunity yet again to get myself and my blog out there for some new readers and also a chance to find some new bloggers to nominate!

Reading through her lifestyle blog, I became immediately inspired, as she shares her stories of some of the battles that she has gone through in her life. What’s most important is that RudyMariee is not afraid to let her readers into her battles, and she courageously shares her journey of how she maintains and overcomes. She’s an inspiration to me as I am sure she is for many other readers, and I’m so excited to keep up. Make sure you stop by and check out her blog, linked above!


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in your blog post and link back to her blog.
  2. Answer 11 questions that the Blogger asked  you.
  3. Nominate 11 new bloggers to receive the awards and write them 11 questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post on your blog

My answers to RudyMariee’s questions:

  1. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years I see myself living in the city, or by the beach somewhere like Cali or NYC, working in PR/Mass Comm. I can almost see myself free lancing, but we’ll see!
  2. If you could change one thing about our current world what would it be? If I could change one thing about our current world, it would be Colorism within the black community. Its something that’s always annoyed me, and I’m so glad all shades of brown are starting to be appreciated. Finally.
  3. Why did you stat blogging? I started blogging because I feel like writing and getting my feelings out has always been something that came natural to me. People closest to me know that I’m pretty much an open book, but I never thought that this type of hobby was something that I could ever pursue as a career. I went to school for Product and Brand Marketing, and now I realize all I want to do is brand myself. So what better way? I heard in church one day, or no I think from Steve Harvey that we have stop pushing away the things that we are drawn to do even if it seems like it would be something silly. He said that’s how we know what it is that we should pursue. So when I think about writing, its the only thing right now that I can literally push myself to do for work without it feeling anything but exciting and rewarding.
  4. What advice would you give to new bloggers? For new bloggers my advice would be to BE YOURSELF! I think that the only way to find your niche and attract the audience you want is to let them see who you really are. Overcoming the fear of that was the hardest step for me, but now it feels great, therapeutic even, to let my readers into real stories and experiences that I’ve been through. It was when I overcame this that my readers really started to engage with me, and It pushes me to  want to keep writing.
  5. What is the most interesting or most unusual thing about yourself? I think that the most unusual thing about myself is that I’m obsessed with cleaning. I’ll literally make time in any schedule to clean something, no matter if I’m going to be late, and I’m sure it could wait until later, doesn’t matter. And its not clean unless its Anissa Clean!
  6. What would be your idea of a perfect day? My idea of a perfect day would be to wake up in a hotel by the beach, go out for pancakes and unlimited mimosas for breakfast, go for a nice bike ride along the beach, take a walk hand in hand on the sand, watch the sunset with some apricot blue moons, kick back watching Definitely, Maybe with some Haagen Dazs coffee ice cream? I’m all about relaxation, simplicity and romance!
  7. What are you most passionate about? I would say that I am most passionate about love. Everybody needs love.
  8. What are you planning to do differently in 2018 in regards to your blog? Though I started my blog up at the end of last year, this year I am planning to be a lot more consistent with posting, advertising and sticking to my schedule. I realized that I do actually have a lot of time on my hands which I could definitely use to work on my blog. Everyday for the past couple of weeks I work on my blog from 3:30- 6pm faithfully, I’ve stuck to my schedule. When I decide to post I set a deadline for myself, which is usually 6pm to get it done without distraction. I’ve also started to use social media to my advantage when I do put up a blog post, so that family and friends know its out there and can like comment and share also! So I want to keep up with this, because its been working great for me.
  9. Have you found anything in particularly difficult during your blogging journey? The one thing that I find is most difficult is taking time out to find new blogs to follow. It’s not as easy as it seems, just because it takes A LOT of time, but when I do stumble upon one its so rewarding. Even when you think you’re into a specific type of blog or writing style you could become captivated in a different type, because of a story they told or because something they said resonated in you.
  10. What kind of books do you enjoy reading? I’m somewhat of a hopeless romantic, so I really enjoy reading fiction love stories, those are my favorite. I used to really love Sarah Dessen and Nicholas Sparks books as a teenager, because that’s what they’re mainly about. I also like a good mystery, but still with some ounce of love in it. I haven’t had the chance to read for pleasure as much now as a young adult, but anyone who really knows me knows I’ve always loved to read and I really do get excited about a good, fresh, crisp book! (Psst..Drop me some authors!)
  11. If you could be anyone for 24 hours, who would it be and why? If I could be anyone for 24 hours, I’d probably be Carrie Bradshaw. Sex and the City is easily my favorite series, and I loved Carrie’s character in the show. She’s young, sassy, and stylish, and her guy is old and stubborn, but she tames him. I think that in some ways her lifestyle is alluring to me, she’s just writing her column, hanging with her friends and looking for love. Again, I’m a hopeless romantic, who loves the idea of love and plus who wouldn’t want to be 30 out in New York City, writing about it. I would!

Thank you for these questions, they really do get me thinking about life! Its been taking me some time to finish up this post for that reason, and also because I’ve been wanting to take time out to find some other bloggers to nominate!

  1. Makupsy

Peach Lemonade.

Peach Lemonade.

As you grow older you start to look at things from a totally different point of view. You realize the things your parents probably went through, but shielded you from. You realize what a bitchy teenager you used to be. You stop dwelling on small things, because when you look at the bigger picture you know that there are many other colossal things to stress about. You realize what’s important. When you’re up in life you learn things. Things about life, about the world, about about yourself, about people. When your circumstance allows you to hit rock bottom, it changes you and you learn even more, but overnight.

I’m starting to think that at any age circumstance is life’s biggest teacher, and how you respond to different circumstances is an even bigger realization of your character and who you are becoming.  I’ve learned the most about myself through the worst situations, and right at the beginning of the year when everything is supposed to be peachy and sweet.

Life will not always be peachy, and if it was we’d never appreciate the liberation of getting through rough times. Now I’ve been sitting with this for some weeks actually, and I guess I was having a hard time putting what I felt into words, but I knew once I was ready the words would come and I’ve been looking forward to the moment when I could share some of the things I’ve learned so far in 2018.


I don’t think I’ve ever really understood the true meaning of being courageous until now. It seems like something you have to have to make it through scary situations, but there’s more to it than that. Encouraging someone is like instilling the will into them that they need but don’t have, so having courage is like instilling that same will into yourself. Courage is important, because at some point you’re going to be broken and the journey ahead is going to be foggy and uncertain, and that courage inside you is going to lead the way to get you through.


In Church I learned that sometimes we allow our negative feelings about something or towards something prevent us from moving forward. Feels are inevitable, but even if you feel hurt, angry or discouraged, feelings can’t kill you. There’s truth in this, because there are times when it really does feel like the way we feel during a situation is killing us when it’s too hard to bare. But sometimes you have to swallow your feelings at that moment or for how ever long you need to, to stay focused on what your plan is to overcome. Feelings will not kill you!


What are you willing to do for the things you want in life? What are you willing to sacrifice? What if you had to sacrifice your vices, your alone time, your comfort, your stability? Would you do it? You have to know your reasons to do what you have to do, and for you. Always.


I don’t know too many things about love, but the heart wants what it wants and it can be consuming. Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve, don’t be too transparent. Listen, reciprocate, empathize and support and never let your own emotions get in the way of hearing someone’s point of view.  Give and receive love, but never let your love be abused and misused. Love yourself first, foremost, and fully, no matter what it takes.


Sometimes its hard to accept the cards you’ve been dealt in life, even I’m guilty of being envious of things that other people were blessed to have and I wasn’t. I guess its only natural, but privilege in life doesn’t mean anything if you take it for granted rater than use it to your advantage. You cannot dwell on the things that you don’t have in life, because you’re given what you need in life. Whether it be money, material things, drive or ambition, you have everything you need inside of you to be all you can be.


I wasn’t raised in a church, but I was definitely raised to pray. I used to only do it because I was told to though, so I never really experienced the sheer power in prayer or the miracles that could happen when you stay faithful to God. I never knew the pure joy of deliverance, or the feeling of knowing that I’d been delivered until God was the only one I could depend on. I had never even experienced Joy, until I started to depend on God, and now I know that He always knows what’s in your heart. There’s peace and happiness when you find a Church you like, a gospel song that touches you or a bible verse that speaks to you. I’m proud that I have come to faith on my own and on my own terms, and without the pressure of anyone’s influence, because there’s beauty in prayer and spiritual awakening.


The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Our perceptions of what’s good for us always gets in the way and you can’t let perception blind your reality. When the road gets rocky, don’t always be so quick to assume that a decision that works well for the short term will also work well in the long run. Be patient, persevere, and learn to wait for greater chances for greater outcomes.


The idea of change used to be scary for me and its true that in the past dealing with change has been very uncomfortable, but through adaption comes evolution.  I’ve learned that you have to adapt to every situation you find yourself in. See the positive and the opportunities that change presents, because that’s the only way you’ll survive. I mean, even animals do it.

“I’ve learned the most about myself through the worst of situations, and right at the beginning of the year when everything is supposed to be peachy and sweet.”

There’s courage in strength, strength in sacrifice, sacrifice in love, patience in faith, adaption in privilege. In life nothing is ever guaranteed or guaranteed to stay peachy and sweet, but be fruitful when life starts throwing you lemons and just make lemonade. You have no choice!



Fear Not, Love Thyself.

Fear Not, Love Thyself.

You know our senses right, do you know the sense of self? I think maybe because this isn’t a sense that we are born with, but rather one that we acquire through life, that people forget that along with loving others we need to also love ourselves.  I think that fear of failure is something that is a result of failing to give ourselves self love, its something that has held me back from everything I’ve ever started.

“along with loving others..we need to also love ourselves”

The ideas of self- love and fear of failure have been coming up in my life so much lately, in conversation, in blogs, in Will Smith videos, so I feel like I want to share my thoughts about this. I was reading through a post from one of my favorite bloggers, Niki Meadows, where she shares an article written by wellness coach, Dona Winger. This article is so powerful, she talks about how remembering to love ourselves will allow us to overcome when we are facing the fear of failure. It got me thinking about the way these ideas have presented themselves and held me back my entire life.

Growing up I used to have some hobbies that I did really enjoy. I’ve mentioned before that I used to love dance, I used to cheer, I tried track, I played softball and I did gymnastics for like two months. I was really good at many of these, and going to be really great at a few a them if I hadn’t given up at the first sight of things starting to get hard. I quit dance, because starting pointe lessons was way harder than I thought, and required so much discipline and confidence. Track, because I’m to prissy to build stamina, dedicate myself to work outs, and too afraid of running like a girl. Gymnastics, because I didn’t like the thought of potentially hurting myself while learning to flip. The list of excuses really goes on, but overall I began to get so afraid to try and to make mistakes that I told myself that I couldn’t do any of these things. I placed this made up fear in my mind that I couldn’t do these things that I loved.


It really just followed me from then on, like when I switched high schools I didn’t want to cheer anymore, when I went to college I was so scared to try out for the dance team. Anyone who knows me knows that these were things that I literally used to live for and I could never figure out why I couldn’t push myself to do them anymore. It’s because my sense of self was totally lost and along with that went the loss of my own goals and aspirations, the loss of my ambition, the loss of my interests, all of the things that made me who I was.

What I failed to do was lift myself up and give myself the confidence that I could work through the hard seasons of chasing a dream, and instead I fed my mind lies that I just couldn’t do it. When I was frustrated, I failed to just relax, take a break, and give myself what I needed to regroup and recover from the hard days or from the criticisms. You have to give yourself what you need in order to get back into the swing of things when you get knocked down, because you will get knocked down! And the fear of getting back up cannot allow you to quit.

It wasn’t until I started writing that I really realized that I had this fear of failure, because it held me back from starting my blog. From the minute I ever picked up a journal as I kid it was always, what if someone reads this? And then later with my blog it was the same, what if someone reads this? what if they think this? What if that? But I began to make the conscious effort to stop myself when I began to tell myself that I couldn’t, and to rewind and tell my mind that I could. The mind is powerful and I knew that if there was one thing I wanted to go for and really wanted to pursue, it was writing.  I wouldn’t allow myself to go through life wondering what it would be like if I would’ve blogged, because I too often wonder what life would be like if I would’ve danced or got into competitive cheer. I had to put all of the fears aside, and let myself do what I love. If that means taking a break on days when I’m tired, or just holding off on working on a blog to unwind with a movie when I’m burnt out, I do it. I now do whatever it takes for me to get back up later, because I love myself and I never want to lose this sense ever again. In anything I want to pursue.

Yes, the fear of failure can stop us from all of those things in life that were worth trying, but could easily give up when given the opportunity. However, the fear of failure canNOT get in the way of going for what we’re truly passionate about. Sense of self is like our true sixth sense, it involves constantly loving ourselves and willing our minds so that it won’t allow us to give up.



Sunshine Blogger Award!

Sunshine Blogger Award!


I’m so honored to have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Lambam from Lambam’s World!. This New Year has started off very rough for me to say the least, and it’s been pretty hard for me most days to even muster up the energy to keep going with my blog. I’m so happy that I have continued to push, and get my thoughts out there to the world, and I’m grateful that what I have been publishing has been resonating in so many other people and fellow bloggers. It just gives me the strength to keep going, keep writing and keep my eye on the prize!

So with that said, huge THANK YOU to Lambam, and to everyone who has stopped by, commented, followed and shared my posts on iReminiss! If you guys only knew how hard it was for me to even get going with this and put myself out there, I was literally so scared! Make sure you check out Lambam’s blog, which I’ve linked above. She runs a blog that touches on fashion, lifestyle, beauty and motivation. It’s Sunday so go check out her new series Sunday Breeze where she shares some inspirational posts about God and what He can do for you. I’m excited to keep up with the series, as I love to hear how love for God impacts others in their daily lives. She is an inspiration to myself as I sure she is for many others!


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in your blog post and link back to her blog.
  2. Answer 11 questions that the Blogger asked  you.
  3. Nominate 11 new bloggers to receive the awards and write them 11 questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post on your blog

Here are my answers to Lambam’s 11 questions for me:

  1. Are you an apple or an Android  person?    I’m an apple person!
  2. Is this your first blogging award ?    Yes, this is my first blogging award!
  3. what is your favorite post and why?    I think my favorite post on my blog thus far is Choose Your Vibe. This was a post that I published as the New Year was approaching, and I think that the things that I talked about were what I really wanted to take with me into the New Year. Not necessarily as a New Year’s resolution, but more so as things to continuously live by in life going forward.
  4. How do you stay positive?    I stay positive by praying and always remembering that there is so much to be grateful for in life, no matter how hard our lives may get. I try to smile regardless of what I am going through, and remember my goals and what it is that I am shooting for in life.
  5. What does the word Purpose mean to you?    To me, when I think of the word Purpose I think what did God put me on this Earth to accomplish? I think that every person we meet, job we take, situation we find ourselves in is for a reason. Bringing us closer to what our greater purpose is in this life.
  6. where do you see yourself in five years?    In 5 years, I see myself back in a big city like New York or Los Angeles, working in Mass Communication/ PR.
  7. How did you come with the name of your blog?    The name of my blog goes back to my Twitter days, when everyone was trying to find some clever name that nobody already had. I wanted something that would play off of my name Anissa, and most people who knew me back in High School called me Niss for short. Just like that I randomly thought of Reminiss like the word Reminisce. Its silly, but it stuck with me on all my social media channels. So when I thought of what I wanted the name of my blog to be, I wanted it to also follow along the same brand of my social media, but since my blog felt so much more personal I decided to make it iReminiss.
  8. How has blogging changed your life?    Blogging has changed my life in a lot of different ways. I feel like journaling has always been a part of me ever since I was young. Back in Middle School and High School my best friends and I used to keep conversation books and write notes to each other all the time as a way to really express ourselves through writing. And even at home by myself I felt like writing was a way to express myself and my many feelings.  Nobody really knew, because it was a part of me that I kept hidden from everyone out of fear that they’d find my secrets and think I was just absolutely depressed or something. I’ve always liked to write, but in my mind I wasn’t a good writer. I think that Blogging and more specifically WordPress has changed my life, because now I know that I’m not crazy or depressed for feeling a lot of the things that I feel and it’s comforting connecting with people who have gone through the same things. It’s taught me that my perception of what a good writer is, was all wrong. I had an English teacher in Middle School who always told us that thinking is writing, and I’ve kept that saying with me for so long, because it is.
  9. What is your dream brand to collaborate with?    At this moment, I don’t think I have a dream brand to collaborate with, mainly because I’m not so into brands. But that can change! I’d love to collaborate with a good blogger brand at some point.
  10. What is your favorite place to do “Me time”     My favorite place to do “me time” is at home. I like the comfort and familiarity of just being in my own room, or in my own bed like there’s no place I’d rather be to clear my mind.
  11. What do you want your readers to take away from your blog?    If there’s one thing that I want my readers to take away from my blog its to BE YOU. I think that in life, writing, branding yourself, in whatever, people are going to connect with you and relate to you if you stay true to who you are.

Thank you Lambam for giving me a chance to connect with other bloggers and letting my readers get to know me a little bit more! I loved these questions, they boggled my mind and got me thinking of new posts where I can expand on them!
