I was taught that to be well rounded is one of the greatest assets in life. Never pigeonhole yourself, always allow for every opportunity to be exposed. I love to learn and know about everything. I believe what you do or don't know doesn't tell much about you; what you're willing to do to find out tells much more. Don't judge me for knowing all of the lyrics to Uncle Luke's "Scarred," because I also know all of the lyrics to The Negro National Anthem. And the songwriter. And the year he wrote it. My iPod is a hodgepodge and I belong to the House of Hufflepuff. Zora is my muse and Sula (still) speaks my life. I keep a Bible and an icepick in my purse. My side-eye and slick tongue are legendary and lethal, but you'll never have to know if you come correct. And this is what qualifies me as an Educated Hood Chick.
