A big part of growing up is about coming to terms with what you have grown up to be. The times when you remained uncannily silent, perhaps out of sheer fear, even though speaking up would help resolve the conflict much faster. A friend just called out to you, “I can’t trust you with anything anymore.” Now if this was in school, you could have probably rushed to a toilet cubicle and cried your eyes out.

But, what do you do when you are 22?

Wait for your eyes to turn red and the tears to trickle down your eyes. It’s production time at office. The loo can wait.  You have mastered the art to cry silently. To address grief objectively. To not question the who what whys in a desperate attempt to be mature.

Now see, Miz RetroStank is so many different things (aren't we all?), but namely, she IS a Chistian, wife, mother, light, poetess, songwriter, actress, fashion show coordinator, scriptwriter, freethinker, artist, ATLien, and a weirdo with a love for culture and healing. She wants you to know that you can BE, DO, and HAVE anything and everything through Christ! She is native to the third coast, specifically the Southern kingdoms of Arkansas and Georgia. Sweet as pie, good as gold, and free as a bird, she is the only girl of three chill'un, and lawd, did that make for some imagination and shopaholic tendencies. Her father was an Army man and her mama is an infinitely enthusiastic and loving lady. In any case, exposure to different places, expectation of excellence, and a homeopathic childhood environment, majorly tilted her towards uniqueness; she was THAT girl who wore a dragon-print dress with a mandarin collar one day and a funky TLC-inspired look complete with ponytails and barrettes the next. So, by now, you're understanding that she is all about the spice of life. So sit back, buckle your seat-belt, and enjoy "the Funky ride all around the world" (in the words of Outkast).

Two Cents, anyone?
