4 Years, 4 Months ago, I met Jeff. Since the first day of school, he and I have been friends and turned into family. I love this lil fool and I’m so proud of him for graduating. There aren’t many people I know that work as hard or care as much as Jeff. Although he may be a tad unorthodox….okay a lot, all who meet him come to love him as well. So proud of you lil bruh, gonna miss you around campus, but I’m right behind you. Love you man and I thank the Lord that I met you! (And you know I don’t say things like this often.)

Meet Tera Poole, the first black valedictorian at the world’s oldest dentistry school

Established in 1840 as the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, the University of Maryland School of Dentistry is known as the first dental college in the world. This past week, the school again made history when it graduated the first black valedictorian in its 176-year existence. It took the school an absurdly long time to have any black graduates.

She’s the Cleopatra to my Nefertiti. 👑👑👑

In honor of #MelaninMonday and #Blackout, I wish to send a special shoutout to the woman of my dreams, the person who I would award a Lifetime Achievement Award, and my lover who is also my best friend and the one who can make me laugh uncontrollably with her faces, baby voices, and her Happy Feet dance moves: @co0kiemonstuh. She is truly special to me and words can’t begin to express the love I have with her or how deeply in love I am with her. I can’t wait to see where our journeys take us, career-wise and together as a couple. We have so much to be proud of and we’ve overcome so much and our journeys are just starting. Moving in with you is going to be a new experience for both of us and no matter what happens, what arguments we get into, what near-disasters we have in the kitchen or the fight over how hot our shower water needs to be, I will be here forever and always. I’m not leaving. I’m here as your ride or die, your best friend and your baby. I’m proud of everything you have accomplished in these years and I’m looking forward to supporting you in your future accomplishments these next two years in grad school. You’re unconquerable royalty and no matter how difficult the road may seem, you will make it. You’ve already come so far and you’re going to go so much farther.

So, here’s to us.
The besties.
The lovers.
The graduates.

Cheers, baby. I love you. 💜💜💜
