Today might have been the most productive day in the past couple of weeks. I mean, of course it would have been faster to type the info I was collecting instead of writing it down by hand, but I honestly feel so much more engaged like this.
I also made myself some hibiscus iced tea because it’s one of my favorites and it looks so pretty.
It’s been a while since I’ve felt the rush of doing work and sending it to my advisor, but I plan on ignoring my school e-mail for now because I could really use some rest tonight…
“Take 1 pint of water, add a half pound of sugar, the juice of 8 lemons, the zest of half a lemon, pour the water from one jug into the other several times. Strain through a thin napkin. Grandmother, the alchemist. You spun gold out of this hard life. Conjured beauty from the things left behind. Found healing where it did not live. Discovered the antidote in your own kitchen. Broke the curse with your own two hands. You passed the instructions down to your own daughter. Then she passed it down to her daughter.”
Congrats to all the black and brown graduates of 2016, we did it!!!! 🍋✊🏾
