Qeysha Quentin (Street Articles Author)

Hello, everyone and thank you for visiting my page. I’m glad that you took some time to spend with me today. I hope you found some information that would be of benefit to you and/or made you think. I believe that everyone has something to offer, I believe that I have something to present in a unique and well thought and well written format that engages readers to want to read more. My mother is a writer/editor and is expert with punctuation placement and the like and has been told by her bosses that she has excellent subject/verb agreement. I inherited my parent’s perfection in speech, my mother’s love of writing, but I’m not so good with the rules of written grammar. I’m not as bad as I used to be, I have an English book and a style guide that I refer to often, but I might misplace a few commas and semicolons here and there, which drives my mother crazy. Sometimes, I think she expects me to write perfectly. Most of my articles are essays of my thoughts about things that I need to get off my chest. Some of my favorite topics to cover are women’s issues, singlehood and natural hair. Some of my articles will be very light and airy informational pieces like how to make my favorite recipes and tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way to make life a little easier. Anywho, I love to write, so let me tell you a little bit about myself. My moniker is Qeysha (Keysha) Quentin, 2 Qute. I came up with the name one day sitting at my computer wondering what I would call myself if I had a fake name, I repeated the name out loud, “Qeysha Quentin” and exclaimed, “That is too cute (2 Qute)! I liked the alliteration. As for my nickname, Poppy, I am small in stature and no bigger than a poppy seed. My real first name is very common with a very specific pronunciation. Most women with my name don’t pronounce it the way that I do. In fact, I didn’t insist that people say it right until I got to high school. Anyway, I’m almost 40 years old but look no older that 16. For the most part my life is fine; I love my youthful appearance and never had a big problem with it, infact everyone in my family has young genes. Moving right along, I am a writer. Even before I knew what blogging was I was writing my thoughts down on paper and typing well into the morning. My favorite way to annotate is in my journal. I buy the most beautiful books to put my thoughts in, some are expensive and some are not. Most of my journals are pastel colored and are so pretty to look at which makes them enjoyable to write in. There’s no better way to start the morning than to prop myself up in bed with two pillows on my back, covers drawn, my lap desk on my legs with my mahogany wood blinds opened just enough to let the dawn in and writing ‘till my heart’s content. Because, I eat mostly vegetarian food I wake up at the most unusual early morning hours. So, I can get in my writing and most of my reading before preparing myself and going to work. Nothing is more satisfying than to have an hour of peace, all to myself, doing exactly what I want to do. Most people don’t get that much time, but I make time for me. Forget, L’Oreal, I’m worth it! To know that I have progressed by finishing something that I started or resolving a conflict or just being able to get my aggressions down on paper, all before walking out the door is a huge confidence booster. I arrive at work happy, on purpose, with no hang-ups. More people should be so blessed. It would make the world a better place.☺ And, it doesn’t hurt that I’m unmarried without children. In the meantime, thank you for spending some time with me and I look forward to sharing my thoughts and views with you. I’ll be brief here so you can get back to the blogosphere. ~Some people like to yell or fight to get over their frustrations, I like to write. ~ QSQ Sincerely, Qeysha Quentin 2 Qute
