Things you can do when worry has you in a hold.
Short version: nothing. No, but for real, I didn't. It's been a hot minute since I felt the mental freedom to write.

And then in my usual consistently inconsistent ways, I fell… Continue reading Books: Are We Reading This Year or Nah?

I was looking in my drafts to see what old ideas I could refresh and add to...this one came up. I'm leaving most of it as-is so the time period being referenced was June 2020. First of all...whew chilay! Semester is over and cheers to the end of my 2nd year abroad in Myanmar. I… Continue reading Black People and Hobbies
