Black Lives Matter

First of all, I would like to say that I have paying a lot of attention to how I use my voice on other social media platforms, I have been neglecting to use my voice on my blog and I want to apologize to my readers for now speaking out here sooner. I am an ally of the black community and the Black Lives Matter Movement. I am working to educate myself on racial inequality, white supremacy, white privilege, police brutality, and many other topics necessary for me to fully understand my ignorance. I refuse to be ignorant any more. I refuse to not understand how my ignorance has aided in the oppression of my black brothers and sisters right under my nose. I have been speaking out on every social media platform I have an account on in an effort to keep the topic alive and keep people from forgetting that the people will not rest until justice is in order. I have also been making sure I sign petitions and donate in whatever capacity I can to help.

This blog does not tolerate hatred. It does not tolerate racism, hatred, ignorance, Trump, or any of the vermin in the government who support him. If you are someone who tolerates or supports anything I just listed, please either listen with an open mind with the intent of changing your ways, or leave immediately. I don’t need people like that and I don’t want people like that on this platform. I am not saying that in order to enjoy my blog you have to agree with everything I say. That could not be further from the truth. But when it comes to the issues of today and the Black Lives Matter Movement, anyone who does not support this post has no right to be here. My blog is a safe and loving space and it will not be tarnished by ignorance. I am done standing by and allowing people with gross values get away with publicly hating black people and other people of color because they just can’t understand how to be good people.

Our nation is hurting. People are dying because of the color of their skin. America has been plagued with racism since it’s gruesome founding hundreds of years ago. Our was founded on genocide, slavery, and cruelty. And the fact that we are still keeping up with these ideals today is sickening. I am disgusted that I live in a country where it is considered taboo or shocking to be standing up for racial justice. How have we become so skewed as a society that we allow this? Our nation is sick. Our justice system is malignant. We must fight to free American citizens of color from the systemic oppression that has been in place for 4oo years too long. We are done letting the system own the people. It’s time the people do something about the system.

My New Blog Name

Hi y’all, long time no see! So after a few weeks of brainstorming, I decided to change my blog name from ‘Good Times Never Seem So Good’ to ‘Tender Loving Caroline’. There are a few reasons for this change. First of all, I realized that I wasn’t thinking clearly when I first named my blog back in 2018. I didn’t think about the copyright laws associated with using lyrics to a popular song and to get ahead of any potential issues related to this, I decided a name change was in order. I also have been evaluating what my blog means to me and what I want to accomplish. First and foremost, this blog is a safe space for me to share important topics in a constructive and positive way. There are so many things I am bursting to share with the world and this is my outlet to make it happen. I wanted a new name that would help me showcase this. I wanted something catchy that would also tell people what to expect when they visit my sight.

Suddenly, after making a list of 50+ name options, Tender Loving Caroline came to mind. Not only does this represent the kind of person I want to be, but I believe it also embodies the feeling I want anyone who visits my blog to experience. I am so happy with this change and I can’t wait to continue to share myself with the world.

I would like to thank Em, Halie, and MJ for listening to me ramble about the changes I want to make and for giving me their honest opinions and support. They are the real MVPs and I am so grateful to have friends like them.

I hope everyone is staying as safe and healthy as they can during this time. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a little TLC every once in a while.
