Blogcation

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”–Audre Lorde

Now, that it’s summer it’s a perfect time for a Blogcation. I’m ready to tackle some other projects these next couple of months. A few of my summer plans are to cut back on social media, read a good book, and spend time with my toddler. There’s been an agenda from “you know who” to crush our spirits. The mainstream news has been filled with overwhelming stories of racist/other oppressive incidents. This constant bombardment of negativity is meant to disorient us and leave us feeling hopeless. While traditional forms of resistance are always necessary (boycotts, etc.), engaging in self-care is also important.

So, that’s what I’m going to do. I encourage all my readers to do the same. I also want to thank everyone for your support. My goal with this blog has been to show the unique experiences and complexities of Black women/womanhood. If you are not quite ready to say goodbye for the summer months, I will be offering online courses at my new virtual school.  It’s an opportunity to expand on my work. There will be fun activities, so be sure to check ’em out! The courses will be available in July.

Otherwise, I will be back in the fall. Have a safe and cool summer!
