The Weekly Wrap — June 7th, 2020

June 7, 2020

For whatever reason, moving this weekly post to Sundays sounded like a good idea — I guess because, in my brain, weeks go from Sunday through Saturday, not Wednesday through Tuesday, and… oh, it doesn’t matter.

stamped: racism, antiracism, and you (nonfiction audio review)

life updates:

A pretty alright week here, aside from how much my heart hurts and how worried I am about these protesters being abused, imprisoned, and worse. ? It’s just a sad time all around right now but I’ve been trying to take a little time the last few days to find happy things to focus on here and there — which I know is ultimately a very privileged place to even be in, because so many of my loved ones can’t focus on anything else right now. Whichever description fits you, please try to take a little time this week to take care of yourself. I love you and my inbox is open. ♥
