When used properly, the internet and it’s many social media outlets allow for some pretty awesome connections to be made. Recently this proved to be true when I had the absolute pleasure of stumbling upon an awesome blog called Twenties Unscripted run by the fabulously talented Tyece Wilkins. Since finding her blog and connecting with her via twitter, I’ve read and enjoyed every post on this site and she’s graced me with the awesome opportunity to be featured on her blog during her Guest Writers Week twice! I want to give a shout out to her and the rest of the wonder voices of the women writers features in this month’s Guest Writers Week as well as any other writer and talent out there. here’s an excerpt from my post “Dear Twenties” and follow Twenties Unscripted for more “sincere, sassy, and sometimes smart-assy takes on growing up”
Hey, it’s Noëlle. We’ve known each other for almost five years, but I think its time we had a little chat. I mean, unless God has other plans for me, we’ll be spending another five years together, so why not get a dialogue going between us? Its okay if you don’t have much to say right now. Just hear me out.
At 18, all I wanted was to meet you. I’d heard so many great things about you. How you came with freedom and independence. How you are supposed to be a total blast. You were that ideal of being a grown-up but still teetering the line of adolescence. The whole concept of “Old enough to know better; too young to give a fuck” had me sold on you immediately.
When we first met on March 3, 2010, I was a sophomore in college. I was invited to a gala, got dressed in a gorgeous black and white gown, had my face beat to perfection and drank amaretto sours with my girlfriends. It was a good time. I felt great about finally meeting you. But I guess you could say that our first year was a bit boring. It’s fine though because I was still feeling you out. You made up for it the next year.
