For what little my voice counts, allow me to be clear: Black Lives Matter.
How is it things are so peaceful and beautiful, for such a harrowing reason?
“My word of the year should be Exploration! I want this year to be about going out and discovering new things!”
Ha. Maybe not.
Writing my Master’s thesis taught me a lot about myself and how I like to work.
This year is different. All years are different. I didn’t always think about it this way. This is new, and I think it’s connected to the postgraduate life.
