But there’s a “rap battle” going on between two notable rappers that's highlighting the misogynoir, abusive and predatory behaviors that people don't often acknowledge in hip-hop, the music industry, and Black communities. My boomer mama even asked me about this lol.

But I have colonizer colleagues reporting me to my state board of psychology for having the title “psychologist” on my websites and personal social media accounts. I have never claimed to be a licensed psychologist because I am not yet fully licensed (duh, lol). It's giving major Colonizer Karen vibes that need to find some business. Leave me alone chile.

But I’m simultaneously fighting against the system, while working in the system, while fighting against this inequitable, discriminatory and biased licensure exam and advocating for the field while also preparing to take said exam. Word to Radical Psychologists!

But I'm supposed to "self-care" my way through all of this. LOL YEAH OKAY.
