Don't "sweetheart" me
Speak your "truth" if you must,
But with words so thick you almost choke
Don't "sweetheart" me.
Never a pat on the back
Just feet on my neck
So many things I could say from anger,
But I wasn't taught disrespect
I was taught to respect my elders

Answering questions to the best of my knowledge pertaining to where things are located in the store, what we have in stock, policies etc. I'm a peop...
When I tell you that social media has done more good than harm in my life. I mean it with all my heart.

One of the reasons why is because that's how I found this next artist, Malia.
I am always on the lookout for new music so I check out the artists that people tweet about, I look into different hashtags and sometimes I just will tweet out to my followers that I'm looking for new artists and songs to list...
When it comes to this next artist, I have to give a huge shoutout to social media. It comes in clutch in regards to discovering new music and networking. Looking back on my twitter I can say that it was exactly April 21st, 2015 when someone I followed retweeted the velvet songbird Sabrina Claudio onto my timeline. My immediate reaction was.. and I quote: "Ummm @SabrinaClaudio though?! She was RT'd on my TL & I'm nosey so I peeped her covers & my goodness VOCALS FUH DAYS. #amazing".
