    A Matchaholics Guide to Matcha Treats

    I am a huuuuuuge matcha lover!!! Seriously I am a matchaholic! If you have seen my Instagram, you will see me post my favorite matcha treats! My first introduction to matcha was working as a Starbucks barista. I had a green tea frappucino and I have been hooked ever since! I’ve tweaked the traditional recipe to make it my own. My go-to Starbucks drink is a vanilla soy green tea latte (sometimes I get an extra scoop of matcha). Now to be real, although they use Japanese matcha in their green tea latte its also mostly sugar.

    The Love Trial

    It was a normal Monday morning as I awoke ready for work. Visions flashed of a court preceeding in my head as I grabbed my shirt. I’m in a daze. Feeling like I’m lost in a maze, an eerieness hovered As I heard a knocking at the door and thought who could be looking for me I wonder And as I head towards the door, my heart starts to sink I see the flashing lights of the law, now my mind panics and thinks I open the door to the officer who said, “Are you Elijah? I have a subpoena. You need to be in court this morning, follow me,…

    Dream Chasin

    Sharing an awesome poem from a very talented writer.  Check out some of his other writings! I’m so ready to hit the road and never come home. Dream Chasing till the day that my goals are memories I can quote. And my dreams turn to scenes from the days of old When my only audience was me, and these pages I’d wrote. I’m different; Been treated like it my whole life. Nobody knows of the struggles I faced with no heat; On those nights The only thing that kept me warm was this fire under my dreams Couldn’t sleep, ’cause I’d see visions of how I’m meant to be living in…
