Who Am I?

When I titled this about page, the first thing I said in my head was “Di Girls Dem Suga” like the child I am.

Hi. I’m Osamudiamen. I’m 26. and I live in Washington, D.C. I created thebonydiaries (The Ebony Diaries) as a space (safe or not) to be able to share my thoughts with myself out loud and the world as well. My mind is constantly moving, and to keep from arguing with myself 25/8, I HAVE to write.

We’re all interconnected in some way, and with all of the billions of people in this world, at least one person will either feel me, understand me, or just think I’m fucking nuts…and to be honest, I’m cool with all three.

I’m UPSET the blog era has seemingly died and been replaced with the vlogging era. Don’t get me wrong, vlogging is cool and all, but I don’t care too much for in your face visuals…I’m more of a create the visual in your mind using words. That’s where the real power lies. DAS SEXY. This is what I’m here for. I’m here to bring this shit back, but in a real way. No facades. No sugarcoating. Just real shit.

…So welcome to my world. It’s generally a clusterfuck of shit – good shit, bad shit, sad ass shit, and nearly cracked-out happiness and shenanigans.

The goal of my transparency is to make you uncomfortable, then uncomfortably liberated, and finally just liberated. I want you to find the power in transparency and vulnerability, not by way of oversharing, but to be unapologetically yourself and proud of it…even if that includes the weird ass shit you think of at 3am.

This is a space of inclusivity and to be unashamed of the thoughts you possess on a regular basis.

Humor is my escape, and I believe you can find the joy and comedy in literally every and anything. I’m really fuckin’ here for a good time, not a long one, so eskkkketttittttt.

I hope as I continue to delve deeper within my own power, yours is found, strengthened, or reaffirmed.

We as black women are so fucking special. We set the standard for everything in this society, economy, and throughout the world. Be free and don’t hold back.

because I won’t.

Welcome to an inside look of my brain…every single day. It might be what yours looks like too.
