Jaclynn (Pookie Mae and Tootie Lynn) <–cause that’s what my Mama calls me 🙂
I am incredibly smart. I am incredibly stupid. Without fail I will contradict myself. The daughter of a college educated former social worker and a former Marine who don’t always make the right decisions. I’m imperfect just like those I sprang from. I am the granddaughter of a coal miner and just like him I can be quiet and introspective. Yep I’m the coal miner’s granddaughter and like his wife, I can rule with a shade of cool so blue it will chill you to your spine but like her, I am compassionate, spunky and spontaneous. I am the granddaughter of a sensitive but strong stay at home Mom of three and a conscientious laborer.
I am black, that’s what I write but I know I am composed of more than that.
I am a daughter, niece, cousin, friend and most of all a child of God.
My complexities, like my mistakes are innumerable.
In the words of my own father, I am a “fortunate fool”.
I AM IN THE BEST RELATIONSHIP EVER!!!!
These are just my interpretations of the situation.
Anissa aka Cuzzo
I cannot describe myself fully because I am different things to different people. A mother to a one year old boy. On earth 25 years. My parents are of Caribbean descent. My mother’s only child but one of eight children from my dad. New York native but currently residing in Philly. I love to laugh. I say whatever is on my mind. So far my soundtrack is a little Jill Scott, The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3
Whatever it is
Let it be 😉
Peyso (or anything that rhymes w/ Peyso)
I always have an issue describing myself. I think I represent the double consciousness that DuBois wrote about. I am an elitist yet I’m down to earth and a bit ghetto. I am eloquent yet I really do enjoy cursing. I am consistently inconsistent. I am the most emotional rational person you will ever meet. I am probably who your parents will love.
More to come soon!
