Sooo… I’ve vented to three of my bestest buds now and feeling good. From here on out you can refer to me as a person (friend, daughter, sister, aunt, acquaintance, social worker), not an activist. I’m switching back! :) “Activism” didn’t keep me warm when I went home, as @chiffontae says. Let’s learn to value each other as people and not just the work that is produced. I’m 25 years old and far too young to be this intensely burned out. Wish me luck with this new perspective. I’m starting a Cello class in 3 weeks (thanks Bettina for the inspiration), parenting some plants (thanks I Li) so long as my cat doesn’t eat them, and impatiently waiting to see my baby nephew (see photo) in December.
