One of the goals of this blog was to help decode the maze of cranes and construction in progress and provide a more detailed understanding of the new buildings going up in Nashville. As I drove around town I always wondered “is this going to be condos or apartments? Would a new company to Nashville inhabit this building or would a company moving from the suburbs to the city occupy this space?”
As I was riding around looking for a coffee shop for which to work, I decided to take pictures of the the signage and research the details in order to better understand the future state of the Nashville city. With this in mind I have decided to call this new segment “New Nashville – Cranes and Construction”
I’m not super into India Arie (I know, I know) however I’ve heard her performances will give you life! What a wonderful way to end 2015.
I am looking forward to the surprise guest “friends”.
￼Though many people have no idea, federal prison labor:
produces 100 percent of all military helmets, war supplies and other equipment. The workers supply 98 percent of the entire market for equipment assembly services; 93 percent of paints and paintbrushes; 92 percent of stove assembly; 46 percent of body armor; 36 percent of home appliances; 30 percent of headphones/microphones/speakers; and 21 percent of office furniture. Airplane parts, medical supplies and much more: prisoners are even raising seeing-eye dogs for blind people.
One of my goals is to give coverage to the hard working nonprofits in Middle, Tennessee that continue to work towards helping society become a better place. This post I wanted to focus on an organization that has found a really cool way to help raise money for important programs in Davidson County.

With the holidays coming up I’d like to post about a topic that is taboo to the black community. Mental Illness/Depression. “Social circumstances often serve as an indicator for the likelihood of developing a mental illness. African Americans are disproportionately more likely to experience social circumstances that increase their chances of developing a mental illness (source nami.org).”
At times life is just tough for all of us. Everyone deals with loss, grief, and stress differently. With that being said I’d like to post a few of my own DO’s and DON’T of dealing with someone who may be depressed or feeling down in the dumps. Let me preface that I am NOT a physician and that the best resource is your local primary care physician, or 911 for emergencies. This was just simply on my heart and I wanted to share with everyone.
Want to know something I have honestly learned about myself? That I am a mega beeyotch right before my period, about 7 days. Yes, took me 33 years to figure that out.
Every annoying moment (right, wrong, or indifferent) in the last 6 months with the gentleman I’m dating has happened during that time period (yup I tracked it). Been to direct to my mother, it was also then. Said things that weren’t in my place? Yep, a week before my cycle.
