Hey my name is C_Money aka The Muse. So hopefully you can read what I write, feel what I say, and if I can positively influence you in any kind of way, I am completely grateful. I’m black and Korean. Grew up in many different places. I feel that has made me a more rounded individual who’s more open to change or different possibilities. I’m definitely no where near perfect nor do I know it all. I’m just a regular person striving to better myself and my life. I grind because I want more. I want to reach my full potential. It’s not enough to want. I’m going to work, pray, love, eat and move towards a greater life. I’m doing that for me. I want to truly love where I’m headed, so I grind.

Juice Squad: Turning On The Mic

So about 3 years ago me and four of my friends created a podcast that airs once a week on Sunday called Juice Sunday. It was named after the group we had named Juice Squad. The origins of the group was on the designation of juice names we had created for one another. Juice is a reference to someone that…

Petty Haterations

Hmmmm…Now That’s A Habit!

I recently read The Power of Habits by Charles Duhigg and it is definitely a book I have easily recommended to all of my friends. The book basically defines what a habit is, how they are created, how you can begin to change them, and how to make them stick. What I found that was interesting is how everything we…

Snap, Crackle, Pop My Back!

All my life . . . (in my KC and Jojo voice) . . . my back has been all jacked up. I was a year round athlete by the time I was in fourth grade and despite my mother’s wishes that I’d be some sort of dolled up princess person, I was a tom-boy. Rebellion at its finest. Many…

Decoding The Forehead Kiss

Now I feel like this is one of those topics that has probably transcended time and space. Why I bet even the great Cleopatra sat around and wondered what that first forehead kiss from Caesar or Antony really and truly meant. Now historically speaking in the life of a girl, the forehead kiss originates from our fathers, grandparents or uncles. It…

Honestly About Honesty

You can’t handle the truth! Many of us grew up believing that honesty is the best policy. Not all of us apparently. Anyways, they instilled in us the fact that the only good way was the way without lies. Even the smallest of white lies was not all the time okay. The only times they were not as bad was…
