Butter Pecan, Puerto Rican

So let me get this straight, you really came back to read my blog? My lil ol blog?? Can we say thankful? Anyhoo, welcome back! So this blog is more of a get to know me. What is my purpose, why am I blogging, and why I targeted you specifically as my audience.


For those of you who don’t know, my name is Thatiana but that is not what the T stands for. The T can be the tea to you but for me its something that goes a little more in depth. Over the last year or so people began calling me “Tmoney”, or “Tmoneykodaks” because ya gurl loves a good flick. It kind of just stuck after that. So that’s the T part, now for the Thankful. The year of 2018 has taught me about gratitude. Sometimes we focus so much on what we don’t have that we forget to give thanks for what we do have, but not anymore! We are turning a new leaf and yes I said WE, you’re coming with me ya hurrrd?

I live in Pennsylvania but was born in Caguas, Puerto Rico back in 1997 so that makes me a 21 year old. Not your average 21 year old tho. I gave up the party, getting lit every weekend life a long time ago. Yup you guessed it, I’m a home body. But wait yall don’t get it twisted, T enjoys a good party, loud music, and great vibes accompanied by a couple tequila shots, but just not every weekend. I occupy my time usually with work, I have a few jobs that keep me pretty afloat and in my spare time I guess I can say you’ll find me here, blogging. 

 Why I have decided to start blogging.


I’ve talked about this for the past year but was always afraid to leap into action. They say the man that fails to plan, plans to fail BUT the more time you spend planning the less time you have to actually act. So that’s why I’m here, a year later with yet the same plan.

That was until about a week ago, ayeee week agoooooo oh sorry, lets fast forward. I was doing my typical tuesday 2am scroll of the timeline like I aint have to be up for work in like 4 hours and that’s where it hit me. The No Bullshit Blog Builder by Courtney B. An entire year of me bullshitting just for this moment, worthy information just sitting on my tl waiting for my click. I thought to myself this is my chance and like my girl Court said, no bullshitting! Fast forward some more, I completed the course and implemented all the information. I successfully stepped outta my bubble, put my fears to the side and hit published.

This blog belongs to me, but the content is for you. You are who I’m doing this for. I’m talking about those ladies and gents who have potential to reach the top all while doing it gracefully even though you’re most likely dragging a few weights along the way. The weights may make the journey a tad bit harder but with motivation and me in your corner pushing you on, those weights don’t stop a mf thing. Now lets discuss these “weights”. What are yours? Money issues? A fuck boy/girl? Depression? Leave me a comment! Lets tackle these weights together. Oh and always remember, if you cant drop the weight, lift that bitch up and get stronger.

Welcome to the official start of my blog.

Love, t

  6. Hey welcome to the world of blogging. I think I had my first blog at 20 or 21 years old too so keep going and cant wait to keep following.

  7. Welcome to the blogging world! Hitting “publish” for the first time is something else, isn’t it? There is so much to learn, so much to write about. I wonder how many variations of “T” you will write or be asked about. 🙂

  8. Blogging is so much fun. I know you’re going to be great at it and thanks for the little intro to get to know you. I look forward to following your blog and getting to know you better. I lived in PA as a child but have never been back. My fondest memories are from there.

    That’s a great quote. I love your writing style. Looking forward to more blogs from you in the near future. Keep it up.

  14. I agree with you the more time you spend planning the less time you are in the moment doing what you want to do! I think my “weights” are over thinking. I am really trying to overcome that.

So what do you think?
