I’m wishing you all a Happy February. I’m planning to write a couple poems in honour of Black History Month and the rest of my poem “Portrait of the Artist as a Young Black Girl” should be posted in the next week.
A friend sent me this link a while ago and I thought I’d share it. For anyone who loves reading as much as me, here is a real reading challenge created by POPSUGAR. I’m going to attempt to complete it but I guess we’ll see how that goes. Check out the list below!
I’ve never been good at making or keeping New Years resolutions. This is partly because I’ve never really placed a huge emphasis on the holiday but also because I feel like people just make the same goals every year. However, this coming year will become a year of big accomplishments and big changes and I want to take every opportunity I have to make 2016 a year to remember. I harassed my family to make five goals for themselves but here is my list of New Years resolutions for 2016:
Rediscover Toronto [x]
Start a dream journal [x]
Go to a concert [x]
Create a style blog [x]
Graduate and apply for another university program [x]
Take a class (music, photography, French, ASL?)
Get my G1
If I can accomplish even half of these, I would be extremely happy with myself. I guess we’ll see!
Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all the best for 2016!
As the end of my final year is coming to an end, I’ve been thinking about what I want to do after. April will be here in a few months and I have no idea what I want to do. Or rather, I have no idea what to choose. But, I got the opportunity to have something published and I jumped at the chance to write something.
It’s a short personal essay, called The Fig Tree, and it’s about my inability to choose a dream. As kids we’re able to be anything and everything we want at the same time. But somewhere around high school we end up having to make a choice. I couldn’t choose and I still can’t. Instead, I’m choosing not to choose one dream. I want them all.
As for writing, I will definitely continue and hopefully I’ll have another opportunity to publish.
