Autumn & Winter ❤️

Ahh…I love autumn. Finally out of the heat of summer, and into the cool breeze and gorgeous changing colours of the leaves. My favourite season. I love winter too. Ha ha. Unlike many, I don’t mind the cold, in fact I much prefer it over the heat. At least when you’re cold, you can wear layers and get cosy under a duvet…sit by a roaring fire…pop in a few movies and snuggle. Plus…a special someone can always help you warm up. 😍 You can’t do anything in the heat, except strip off and take cold showers. And man do I ever hate to sweat, and I easily get hot. And I don’t mean the good kind of sweat. 😉 I mean the icky, yucky, gross kind of sweat, where you sweat through your clothes and smell not-so-fresh. 😄

At least now we we can enjoy the beautiful colours and warmer clothes. And Christmas will be here soon too! At least I’ve already had the flu, so I should be good for the rest of the year! Ha ha. 😋 Just look at the pretty colours…

and soon…winter…if we’re lucky. As long as we get snow for Christmas, that’s all I ask for. It doesn’t feel like Christmas, if there’s no snow. 😞

Now if only I could find someone to get cosy with under a duvet and by the fire. 😊 Winter is always nicer when you have someone to share it with.

  • first and foremost, a movie about three black women who were boss mathematicians and played integral roles in NASA’s first successful space missions while living in the Jim Crow South in the 1960s
  • an opening that your fave, Beautiful Minds COULD NEVER
  • octavia spencer taking the piss out of a white cop who can’t believe three black women work for nasa
  • a shitty nasa bro confusing taraji with the cleaning lady (AND YOU KNOW THERE’S ABOUT TO BE SOME COMEUPPANCE FOR THAT)
  • mahershala ali being taraji’s fine ass love interest
  • and taraji taking his ass to school with yes women work at nasa, not because we wear skirts, but because we wear glasses
  • janelle monae spittin this fire: we go from being our father’s daughters, to our husband’s wives, to our baby’s mothers
  • also janelle monae hitting on JOHN GLENN cause she all about that equal opportunity flirtin
  • also janelle monae spittin more fire: every time we have a chance to get ahead, they move the finish line
  • the moment when these women’s families are gathered around watching the launch and they’re so proud of their mamas, aunties, daughters, and wives making history (and then suddenly you’re tearing up)
  • also janelle monae spittin even more fire: if i were a white man i wouldn’t have to want to be an engineer, i’d already be one

I don’t know if I will have the time to write any more letters because I might be too busy trying to participate. So if this does end up being the last letter, I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school, and you helped me. Even if you didn’t know what I was talking about or know someone who’s gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don’t happen. And there are people who forget what it’s like to be 16 when they turn 17. I know these will all be stories someday. And our pictures will become old photographs. We’ll all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world.
                           And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.
