This is a kinda rant meets 'trip down memory lane' meets closure type of blog. Its something I've never spoken out loud to anyone before so I thought I'd do it here if that's ok


I've only been a member of this site for less than a week but I've noticed a recurring theme when reading a lot of members comments or posts and also when watching the Afropunk movie and it struck a chord within me reminding me of those feelings I once felt when I was at school. Its also left me…
