Yo! I’m in South Africa baby!
Wow, Africa. Cape Town, South Africa. You’re beautiful.
So I’m at LAX going through general check in because I’m a G, and I’m clean. Also, I made sure my outfit had no panty lines, no pockets, nothing to hide. But for SOME reason, the monitor shows a square of yellow near my heart and my right ankle. This gentle creature asks me in her little authoritative voice if I had any money or cell phones stored near my chest as she checks me? First off, why would money show up on the monitor, of all things? I thought they’re supposed to detect something like a weapon? My other question is, why is money or cell phone stashed in my bra something that someone who looks like me would do? Oh, because it is. Even though I’m against it, and remember I’m wearing a full body suit so you can see every curve of my body, I do know many women who tuck their phones in their bras for safe keeping. I will say this, “If we know better, we should do better.” And of course, the TA agent then had to wipe my hands, and yes, I’m still clean. Thank you for the photo op, stay up queen.
Made it through in the end and some girl complimented me on my outfit on the way out too. Win!
I wonder if I was a Crazy Rich Asian would still be treated similarly? Would I get stared at the same way? Who knows 🤷♀️
Aim high, then fail hard. Success comes somewhere after.

Today I am grateful for:
• More time for learning
• Automatic cars
• Healthy snacks
What saddens you?
For me, the thought of dying alone or leaving this world without knowing a true love or being able to pass my legacy on would be pretty tragic.
What would make today great?
If I could discover different mediums of African art.
Release all the sadness and loss, to let the pain flow away
What amazing things happened today?
1. I got to drive on the left side of the road today for the first time.
2. I was able to take a nice stroll along the beach.
3. I’m learning the importance of water conservation.
How could I have made today even better?
If I could, I would have liked to spend more time creating an art project or experimenting with a different medium like fashion and film.
Embrace unique artistic perspectives and high art competence..
