Highlights

Next five books of 2019. I think there are things I’m trying to understand / only beginning to understand about the body — how we talk about our bodies, how we see our bodies, how we experience and treat our bodies | 1. Split, by Cathy Linh Che 2. Witches, Sluts, Feminists: Conjuring the Sex Positive, by Kristen J. Sollee (I’d suggest this for folx just beginning to learn and explore more about women’s roles in society) 3. The Hour of Daydreams, by Renee M. Rutledge 4. The Collected Schizophrenias: Essays, by Esmé Weijun Wang (I couldn’t put this book down 💖) 5. Heavy: An American Memoir, by Kiese Laymon (Another mind-blowing book about the body and what it holds. This took me longer to read but bc I felt I needed to sit w each section and feel)

Heart Berries, by Terese Marie Mailhot 4. Sick, by Porochista Khakpour 5. Begin with a Failed Body, by Natalie J. Graham (I’ve been hungry for books about our bodies, about how our bodies fail us or save us or help heal us)

Let go | April 29, 2019 - Samoa, CA

Thursday, April 18, 2019 | Closing old chapters and starting new ones. Today I left my full-time job, and I’ll be focusing fully on writing my book with freelancing as my main source of income. I’m so excited for what’s ahead, especially w my beautiful little family by my side. I know it won’t be easy, but I can’t wait to find my path. My heart is so full 💗💫

Welcoming and calling in the New Year with my mini cauldron 💫 May we leave behind what no longer serves us and walk into even more growth. Excited for 2019: the year of action, passion, and creativity🔥

Grateful for all the books I’ve read this year. Grateful for all the ways language and stories and words continue to save me and allow me to grow and heal 💖 | Last books of 2018: 1. Always and forever, Lara Jean 2. The diving bell and the butterfly 3. A wrinkle in time (my fave book when I was a kid) 4. Like a solid to a shadow (by the magical @janicesap) 5. The left hand of darkness (Estraven is one of my new favorite fictional characters)

2018 has been the year I’ve returned to reading. Reading books (physical paperback and hardback books) has served as a lifeline for my mind and heart to imagine, play, and feel since I was a kid. It’s been difficult to foster and create my writer’s self post grad school, but I’m slowly and surely finding my way with intention. Reading and writing will always be a home I can return to 💖
