Kintsugi Part II By: Honey B. Baker
“Wow Nadia...” I woke up to that two-word text from Donovan. Dylan was still sleep on the bed beside me. We’d ended up staying up all night just talking, laughing, and getting to know each other. He’d fallen asleep on my old lumpy couch so I’d invited him to bed. He politely refused but eventually gave into my prodding. To my pleasant surprise he didn’t try me; he just went to sleep.

I knew the people around me meant well but I was sick of dead end blind dates that only ended in making me further depressed.

Okay, I’ll be the first to admit I was no in a rush to watch the season 4 premiere of Being Mary Jane. Because I knew Mary Jane would be coming with the bullshit. And as per usual, she did not let me down. I was disappointed in the lapse of time between this season and last. Obviously, so many things have transpired since the closing scene of last season’s finale and now were left filling in the gaps.
To be honest, I would have much rather this season having picked up right where last season left off. But enough about my preferences and let’s get into the recap.
The episode began with Mary Jane seductively walking into her bedroom and asking the mystery man to give her a moment. At this moment, I already began rolling my eyes. I love Mary Jane but I was disappointed that she is still trying to sex her way through past hurts with temporary flings with even more temporary men.
Later on in the episode it is revealed that Mary Jane’s …
