I don’t want my income or creativity to be solely dependent on fluctuating digital media budgets or trending topics on Twitter. Sometimes… I simply just want to sit down at my laptop and rant. Mostly about mental health stuff and all the bullshit that surrounds it in our society, but also about literature and internet drama and TV and fashion. Everything, really. I have lots of interests.” On Instagram, she goes by the name ‘yumcoconutmilk’ which is set to private and her LinkedIn account has been deleted.

In an apartment with a predatory lease that I can’t get out of without paying them like $3,000 plus the rent and deposit for a new place,” and added “I can’t call the police, because he may know it’s us that called. This is Denver, after all, so we’re one of few Black people in this complex.
