Dear New Normal ft. Ken

Who knew that the world, collectively, would be experiencing a new normal at the same dang time? If any year would be the time for massive change, 2020 would be it in my opinion. Is there a new normal or is what the world experiencing just normal? On this podcast episode, Ken and I chat about the state of the world and what our thoughts are moving forward.

I have been on a roller coaster ride of emotions in the last 5 or 6 months. From inspired to bored to sadness then anger and now I’m just pushing through. I am excited for the future although it seems like what’s to come is uncertain, that’s normal though. We aren’t 100% sure of much because like the saying goes, “tell God your plan and He laughs.” One thing I know for sure is that whatever is coming is exactly what I prayed for.

Dear Education, ft. DJ

It’s been four years since I walked across the stage and that feeling of accomplishment is ever present. I waited so long to do it and the moment it happened, the feeling wasn’t something that I could put into words.

This week’s podcast episode is dedicated to the 2020 graduates. Whether that be high school or college. You will remember this moment forever because this is the first of its kind, World Wide. Our country is experiencing a pandemic that has caused so much to shut down. So the tradition of walking across the stage to your name and accomplishments being heard over the loud speaker and your family and friends cheering you on, isn’t possible. I pray that one day there will be a way for us to acknowledge you all beyond the internet.
