Wanderlust: Cuba

I’m so excited to be going to Cuba for a few days! I can’t wait to see the history and the culture and see how it is changing with American tourism. I think that it will be a lot of fun. There is a lot of history to take in and see how revolution impacted Cuba.

You can check out my video on which books I’m bringing to read on the plane and in the airport! Please leave a comment and tell me your experiences. Follow me on Instagram at @90sbornreader to follow my journey!!

Noir Reads: April Unboxing!

You know, I never knew how big book subscription boxes were, until I was out of school. Honestly now that I’m done with school I have learned so much has been happening in the Bookish community, and I’m so excited that it is evolving and growing! One of the subscription boxes that I am apart of is by Noir Reads.

Noir Reads is a box that features topic on black, African, and African-American cultures, history, and political issues, and also features black authors as well. I started receiving the box in February, it was a gift from my mom after she saw it in an article, but April is my first video unboxing! I will link the video below, but I’ll also list what was in the box.

Contents of April Box: Theme, “Black to the Future”

Binti by Nnedi Okorafor

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler, a graphic novel adaptation

“Black to the Future” sticker

Bookmark with a quote by Octavia Butler

Sankofa post card project: This project is to write a postcard to people who have been imprisoned, fighting for the rights of black individuals.

Those were some of the main things from this months box! Check out my video below!

BookTube Newbie!

Hey everyone!! I’ve decided to start a YouTube channel, or more commonly known as a BookTube channel. I know I tried this a few years ago, but I’m trying again. How does the saying go? If at first you don’t succeed… stop for awhile and then try it again? I don’t think that’s how it goes, but that’s what I’m saying for now.  Please subscribe to my channel because not everything I put on there will be put on here, and vice versa. Thank you so much for hanging out with me! Until next time,

#MedicLife: Using the Medical ID on your iPhone

No one ever thinks about not being able to use your phone in an emergency, but what happens if you need to? Say you’re in a car accident and you’re not able to answer EMS’ questions. Maybe you had an allergic reaction to something you ate, but no one around you knows what caused it, and you can’t speak. Say you partied too hard one night, and you blacked out, or ended up somewhere you weren’t supposed to be. Or, on the lighter side let’s say that you lost your phone somewhere random, and there’s no way for someone to unlock it to call your family.
The newer iPhones have something called the Medical ID! It is the equivalent of having the bracelet around your wrist, but this can hold so much more information, and can be accessed from your lock screen. It takes 2 minutes to set up, and can be so beneficial down the line.
1. Start by finding the Apple Health Kit App on your iPhone (excuse my background)
2. Open the app ( I know seems like an unnecessary step)
3. Look on the bottom of the screen to press the Medical ID information
4. Scroll down until you see “Edit” information, and put in all of your information! Especially allergies!
5. Don’t forget to make it visible from your lock screen. That is the most important part!
I hope you found this information helpful! Please share this with friends and family. Until next time,
