Hurt People Hurt People

Image
In my lifetime I have heard and experienced the unfortunate cliche “,hurt people hurt people.” This simply means that people who have been hurt at some point in their life lash out and inflict emotional, mental, physical, and sometimes even spiritual pain on those around them.  It could be that certain words are triggers, certain phrases can set a person off or that people simply accomplishing certain goals can cause the person who have been hurt to lash out.   Many questions may come to mind. One question may be “why do hurt people hurt others when they can heal or get help to heal that hurt.” Well, that is easier answered than accomplished.  When a person is hurt they tend to internalize the role as a victim. If a person has been victimized with in a great trauma, often times they carry around the weight of that hurt and the pain and use it as a defense mechanism.  The hurt that was done to that person may have caused them to feel insecure which can and will affect relationships an…

Me Time and Life

Image
Many of you have been wondering where I have been the last week or so. Well I've actually been taking me some me time that was much needed.    Since the release of the crazy, bitter ex, I've had to spend sometime regrouping. Through this time I was able to focus on me and regain my focus on my music and the move to the DMV. I had spent so much time trying to make something work, but the only thing that was working was my money.   Sometimes people don't want you because they love you. They see what you have to offer and what you can do for them and they neglect the love factor and focus on the "what can I get out of this person factor."     It is sad and unfortunate, but I'm thankful for the experience. Why? Well It is allowing me to transition like I desire. It is also allowing me to explore the polyamorous side of me.  I'm in a time of exploration and a time of transition. If you want to be apart of this transition please click on the link below. This…

Don't Ask About My Genitals: Advice from a GenderQueer/Trans Person of Color

Image
I have some advice to those who are curious about MTF, FTM, and Other Transgender people. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ABOUT GENITALS OR DICK!!!   Why am I giving this advice?  Well Let's see, It is fucking RUDE!!!  It is disrespectful.  This advice comes after a Facebook message that The Priestess received on last night.  In it a man that we'll call "Daddy O,"  who knows what the Priestess is working with in the Penile region, stated that he saw that I was transitioning and that he loved that I had a nice penis. He simply asked "What are you going to do with it." He also stated that he was hoping that I would not get rid of it.   I was taken aback at his ignorance. I was also irritated as hell.  For starters I did want to tell him "Sir, You don't own any parts of me. So you cannot dictate my transition and what I do with my body."  I felt as if I had been violently violated and prodded and controlled.  I was pissed.     However, this Priestess put on…

I'm Taking a Leap of Faith

Image
There are times in our life where we must take leaps of faith and must take a chance on something that will greatly benefit us.  Right now I am in this place.  Right now I am contemplating some moves that will greatly benefit me in the area of my music career, and liberating myself from the humdrum of working a 9-5.  This is one reason why I am stepping up my game with this blog.    Many people have asked why I haven't been blogging as much, well the truth is that I've needed some time away to evaluate some things about my life and about what I really want out of life.  I am doing the best I can to audition with a heavy work schedule as well as keep the creative juices flowing.     I've even started a crowdfunding to help me jump start my music career.  I'm trying to make waves for myself. However, I'm staying patient and resilient that God will answer my prayers soon.   I'm stepping out on that NOW faith principle. Selah, Yannick

Even I Get Tired

Image
We all get to a point to where we get burned out and get tired.  Burn out happens when you are over your head in stress and when so many people desire so much of your time.  But sometimes we get tired and we have to take some time for ourselves to regroup and refresh.   I'm at that point right now.  It happens every blue moon.  I do apologize for not being very active on this blog site, but I haven't really felt like blogging nor have I had the time.  I do thank you all for viewing this blog site and I thank you for showing your support and keeping up with my Youtube Channel.  I may not have a million views nor a million followers, but I am thankful that you all think enough of me to come by and to comment, share, and input your ideas into this blog.   It really means a lot to me.  I pray that you all bare with me as I change some things in my routine. I realize that with some things going on in my life, that posting may not happen everyday, but I count it all joy when I am…

#FlashBackFriday-But You're Gay

Image
As I write this post, my mind goes back to a hot August day.  It was the beginning of my Friday before the big campus parties and my homegirl "Cree," and I were eating lunch.   Cree asked me "Yannick, what type of work did you do back home." "I work as a church musician and I used to work at a hardware store," I replied as I munched on my good old cheeseburger.   I looked up and Cree had this puzzled look on her face. It was like her face had became numb and she replied "But You're Gay."   I couldn't do anything but laugh.   It had me thinking to myself "Does my sexuality determine what type of job I should have?"   Many people often have the stereotype that Gay Men, Transgender people, and gender non conforming people often can only snag call center jobs, office jobs, fast food jobs, and stereotypically Hairdressers or make up artists.     This misconception is entirely untrue.  Would you believe it if I told you that I'v…

Getting Back To Me

Image
It has been a very long time since I've sat my happy booty down and wrote in this blog.  One reason is that I had been sick with a stomach virus. Then as I recuperated I broke my laptop charger and I just got a new one a couple days ago. Then I had to make a trip to the DMV for an even that later got cancelled due to a snow storm.     I can't complain, though. I needed this break. I needed some time away to regroup and to refresh myself.  We have to do that so that we won't lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle of life.  I am also thankful for my current lover.    Mr. Lover Boy has encouraged me to just enjoy life and have fun more often without stressing over things that are out of my control.  Look for it. Some exciting and new things are about to happen for this blog.  love ya, Yannick


Life Gets Hectic

Well I must say life has been hectic here lately. Between running this blog and revamping Yannick's World On Youtube, My life has been very busy. I've been trying my best to keep updating the blog and keep everything flowing smooth within reason. I will soon be back to regularly posting. Love you much, Yannick T

Are You Really Satisfied?

Image
Are you satisfied? It's the second month of 2015 and many of us have declared that we were doing a "New Year and New Me" out fit. We threw the party and we celebrated, but the question comes to mind if we are really satisfied with ourselves.   Are we happy with where we are? Sometimes we get frustrated with staying in one place for too long. We are often unsatisfied, because we failed to act on specific opportunities that have come our way.   In order to be satisfied we must go for what we want and desire out of life. We must go for the big dreams and stop fooling around with the cracker jacks of dreams.  In order to be satisfied we must simply live and forget about other people and their opinions.   Are you really satisfied?

What Do You Want Out of Life?

Image
What do you want out of life? What do you desire for yourself? In this new year of 2015, It is time for us to examine the things that we really want out of life.  You must make that decision.   Is it happiness, success, love, and peace?  If so take the necessary steps to uproot and over throw everything and everybody that is preventing you from getting to happy. It is mandatory. It isn't a choice.   If you want sadness, pain, tragedy, then keep doors open to people that don't want you to succeed, drain you, and kill your dreams.   The choice is yours. What do you want out of life?

Getting Back to Me 2015

Image
Hey Family, I pray that you are all enjoying 2015 so far.  I know many of you have been wondering, Where I've been hiding?  Well, There's something that we all deal with called life.    Somethings that happened in 2014 threw me of course, however I am determined to get back on course. For starters I am looking for a better job and trying to make sure that my finances are where they need to be for this move to DC.  I've been working on this move for almost 3 years and it seems that I keep having set back after set back, However 2015 I am definitely moving with or without the support of some people.  I feel as if I'm behind, but no use in looking in the past.   It is time to move forward. I do believe that within the next few months things with the move will work out.  I have also been suffering from burn out and trying to deal with family issues. If it isn't one thing it's another, however I am finding myself back to me and back to my peace.    I refuse not t…

Pet Peeve: NOT LISTENING

Image
I have many pet peeves. One of my biggest pet peeves is when you're giving someone information and they ask you a question that you just answered.  THAT IS FREAKING ANNOYING!!!!! I work in customer service and it irks me when you are giving an explanation and you have to repeat yourself several times.   It makes me wonder i "Why am I wasting my time when you aren't listening."  It's enough that unfortunately when it comes down to my sexuality and gender identity as a transfeminine/transgender person that people hear only hear what they want.    When will people shut the hell up and listen?! Did you know that listening is fundamental?  When you don't listen you make yourself look like a donkey's ass.  Take the time out to listen. It will enrich your life. Smooches, Musique

I'm BACK!!!!

Image
Hey Family,    I'm back!!!! I've had a busy weekend and I needed some time away. I did win my category for BQ Up in Pumps!!!! I'm very excited.  Despite many things that have happened over the weekend and some arguments that ensued, however things are going better than expected.     I'm refreshed, happy, however I did end up leaving the Ballroom scene over the weekend.  I proved my point that I am a winner not only for Grand Prizes but for of the year in some areas.  I've had a good run for the year lol.    Now my focuses are on building my brand as Yannick Taylor, Yannick's Youtube, This Blog, and Ministry.  I'm also working moving to the DMV. Things are slowly but surely coming together.  Just keep me in prayer.  More exciting posts are coming soon, Yannick
