The Ups and Downs


What’s good my people? I hope ya’ll are well and life is treating ya’ll well. It has been a cool minute since I have written a post, and Imma put ya’ll up on why. Life has been incredibly crazy for me, and a gang of things have happened since my last post. I never really intended to use this a platform for me to express whats going on in my life , but in the spirit of keepin it real, I’m gonna let ya’ll know whats going down with ya boy. Also, I wanted to let ya’ll know that I finally got some new shirts and hats for ya’ll to get soon. I will be changing things up with the website soon spicing up the look and adding a few new pages. Thanks for rockin with ya boy, I always appreciate the love. I’m going to be doing  a give a way for a The Hood Nurse T-Shirt on Instagram soon, so keep and eye out for that too. Ahight, moving on….

As ya’ll can see in the picture above, it’s just me and my two sons. I love them dudes with all I got in me. If ya’ll don’t know, I have been in a relationship with their mother since I was 17 years old and she was 15. We got married in 2003 and had our first son in 2007. As time has past, we slowly drifted apart and are no longer together. It is has been a very difficult time and transition for me. I was with the same person for 22 years, and now I am in the “My Baby’s Daddy” club. Yo, I never in my whole life would have thought that I would be in this situation. I only had a plan A, which was grow old and gray with this dope lady. Now, I got no other choice but to move with a new plan. Please do not get it twisted in any way, I still LOVE her very, very much. The reality is that we are better off as friends. We are currently working on that relationship now. I am real hopeful that everything is gonna work out fine though. I really do think she is a dope person and is extremely talented. I will be promoting her artwork on here from time to time. Feel free to hit me up if you dig her pieces; I will make sure ya’ll connect. Ya’ll can find her on IG @wildraven11 and Earthwork Art Studio on FB. In fact you can peep her work for Hue Noir, she designed the packaging for their products.

I have been through a gang of different emotions yo, from anger and bewilderment, to depression and displacement. Through it all though, at my core, I am good. I have a very strong faith and I am very determined to be happy. The craziest part about it is, I am developing a stronger bond with my two lil men. It makes me a little sad to know it took me and their mom splitting up to get it, but Imma make the most of every moment I get with them. I love my kids and they will ALWAYS come first. They are going thru a world of changes, some of them good, some of them are more difficult for them to deal with. They are real dope and are taking the whole thing as good as they possibly can. I am honored to have such dope kids!

I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and intentions and prayers manifest in ways some times I don’t always understand at first. I have also come to learn over time the answers to those things reveal themselves. I’m startin a new book in life and I am drafting the pages with love, hope and joy. I am anticipating what the future is going to look like. No matter what happens tho, Imma keep it Hood, and Imma keep it real positive! There is a gang of life left to live and Imma take advantage of every second.

There is still so much that is going on ya’ll, but I’m gonna keep doin the dam thang. I appreciate all the love and support over the last couple years, as we grow this Hood Nurse thang! Thanks for rockin with ya boy. Imma holla at ya’ll soon.

Love, Peace and Soul,


MaddHadda aka The Hood Nurse
