Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
Nice to see you all again. There has been so much going on in the word, and trying to figure out what I can do in it all has been a challenge. So I’m continuing with my (not totally passive) work of spreading information when I can, helping to educate when I can, and continuing to cheer-lead those who are able to really be out there. One of the things I’ve been doing has been checking in on Twitter a bit and looking for BIPOC authors who I can help promote, and keeping an eye on Instagram for black weavers and fiber artists to support.
I’ve been drowning (a bit) in my summer coursework, but trying to get on top of that because Monday is the start of my new job and my library internship. I’m excited about both of them, but know it’s going to take some real focus to keep up on all my other work. Some things will likely be let go (Big Book Reading Challenge, I’ll see you another time), but some I’m going to hold to.
Like the Juneteenth Readathon that I came across.
I think I can do this because I’ll be able to wrap some of my academic research reading into it! I’ve been enjoying the added challenge of seeking out BIPOC academic authors. I am also hoping to get some non-academic reading done on one of those days but… priorities.
What have you been up to this week? How are you holding up? Are you making sure to take time to take care of yourself as well?
