2017 Q&A

I realized that after almost two years of blogging I have never done a Q&A.  And lets be completely honest Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away from Murder is almost done so its time to drop some new material. Haha!
So I definitely want to take a moment to thank you for clicking on this post and for taking the time to visit my blog. The Journey by Trice is my little baby and it’s my way of sharing the highs and lows in my life with the world.


As we enter into the holiday season I wanted to share some fun facts about me and answer a few questions that may not have been answered in my previous blog posts.
1. Where do I live?
I currently reside in North Carolina and New York; I work in New York and fly home on my days off. It can be pretty hectic but I am managing and I am growing daily.
2. What do I like most about New York?
I love having food delivered to the apartment and before you go there it’s not just your regular delivery service. I have a favorite diner that I love to go to, I sit with the elderly customers and enjoy breakfast at 8pm or a BLT at 10am. I just live my life and I just eat whatever my little heart desires (I walk the calories off by the end of the day.) With the weather changing I don’t feel like throwing on the layers of clothing so I simply log on and put my order in and 30 minutes later (sometimes less) there’s my food!
3. What TV shows am I currently watching?
Well I just finished binge watching “Greenleaf” on Netflix, I love anything and everything by Shondra Rhimes (she is my spirit animal when it comes to writing)
I also just started catching up on “Queen Sugar” on OWN (I am super behind)
I finished watching Quantico a few weeks ago and boy that kept me on the edge of my seat for weeks
I still have to catch up on “Power” so yeah, I’m pretty much all over the place when it comes to watching television.
4. What album/artist am I currently listening to?
First let me start off by saying this has been an amazing year for music and the entertainment industry as a whole. My ears are very pleased and I love discovering new artists and catching up with a few of my favs
- PJ Morton “Gumbo” Album
- The Walls Group “The Other Side” Album
- Sam Smith “The Thrill of It All” Album
- Lawrence Flowers and Intercession “Champion” Album (I love “Hey ,Hey God” featuring Josiah Martin)
- Chantae Mann “Craters” Single featuring PJ Morton
- Daniel Ceasar “Freudian” Album
- KB “Today We Rebel” Album
- Elevation Worship “Acoustic Sessions” Album
- Joistarr “Nothing Even Matters” featuring PJ Morton
- Eminem “Walk on Water” featuring Queen Bey
(And the list goes on!!!)
5. What is my favorite holiday tradition?
When I was little we use to play “A Christmas Story” all day long starting Christmas Eve into Christmas Day (it was and still is my favorite memory I have with my older sister)
Gathering at my Grandma’s house on Christmas Eve to open gifts at midnight! Oh and I can’t forget about the food! (It was and still is amazing)
Loading up the car around 2/3am and heading home with my immediate family, it was such a quiet car ride home.  (I was always so excited to go home and to go to bed so I could wake up and open gifts from my parents and siblings)
Drinking egg nog with my father!
6. My favorite late night snack/craving?
I have a very healthy/unhealthy addiction to ice cream (I get it delivered to me in New York lol) and chocolate chip cookies with a side of Almond Milk while watching all my TGIT shows!
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE  hot tea! I am slowly becoming a coffee drinker but for now I will stick to my tea!
7. What have I learned in 2017?
I have learned that it’s okay to feel hurt, and it’s okay to forgive. I learned to give myself time to process every emotion and not run from the fear of the unknown. I learned to depend on God and to trust every plan he has set before me. I have learned that the decisions I make will and can affect me for the years to come
8. What has been your favorite memory of 2017?
The night before my niece made her grand entrance my entire family was together and we were just having an amazing time and enjoying each other.  Being able to hold my niece for the first time after she was born still brings tears to my eyes, she is the “Sunshine of my Life” and she is definitely Auntie’s favorite (don’t worry she’s the only one so she can be my favorite!)
9. What do I want outsiders to know about me?
I do not have all the answers and I have no problem asking for help. I am growing and evolving daily and this life is a blessing. I am actively seeking out my purpose in life and I am determined to win! I pray that you see and hear God in your daily lives and whenever you feel discouraged just know you aren’t the only one going through. Just because I don’t share every single detail of my life doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. “A private life, is a happy life” (that’s my personal opinion. It works for me!)
10. What am I looking forward to for 2018?
Being able to watch my precious niece grow and develop. I am so excited to show her all the wonderful things in life and watching cartoons with her on Saturday mornings. I look forward to all the wonderful changes and the growth that will take place next year. I am excited about achieving my dreams and making the necessary steps to set myself up for a better future.
