"I grew up on a rice farm in Guyana. We didn’t have running water or electricity, or anything like that. I didn’t come to America until I was 14. My friend has been struggling lately because she can’t get a job she wants, even though she’s really talented. She’s lived in New York her whole life and hasn’t travelled very much, and she said to me: ‘I don’t understand why anyone would want to immigrate to America.’ I told her:  “Trust me— if there’s a heaven, this is it.’”

I. Am. A. Man.

Yes, I do watch Scandal.

Yes, I called out another man for his respectability politics.

Fuck snow. Here’s why.

Growing up in Miami, where snow never happens, Young Fury got sucked into the alleged magic and whimsy of winter. I remember begging my parents to let me visit family up north with hopes that I’d catch a glimpse of these beautiful flying crystals that we replicated…

Yaga Life Facts:

Here are some of my personal cartoons accompanied by my little life facts of my feels.

  1. Look at yourself naked and know it could always be worse. Appreciate what you have.
  2. It’s perfectly normal to feel like you’re going to be alone FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. Lol, hug your pillow.
  3. The days you feel most alone, reach out to someone you love…even if it’s your cat.
  4. Be okay with the downs of life. Like rain, they don’t last forever.
