The things I dig about myself:
I'm down with CRT, feminist discourse and queer inquiry. I use R, excel and data to compel redress in the pursuit of social justice. I is and I ain't that everyday brutha, I both represent and (re)present. Sincerest flirtation and sexiness for the right lady. A negro got jokes and stays laughin, even when my heart is aching. I push myself to always be loving and kind to all people no matter the circumstances or what others do. My brain is well-endowed. I'm continuing to learn how to get out of my own way. I have no swag -- and I take pride in that.
And in trying something most don't dare. In addition to my awesomeness above -- I'm going to overview my...
My opportunities for growth:
I don't always succeed in my efforts to be kind to all no matter what, so I'm continuing to learn to gracefully walk that occasional fine line between being kind to others, while also being kind to myself. I need to stop smoking. and develop a routine around nutrition. and continue to keep in tight check my mainstream cultural manipulative tendencies. and be a better listener. and gotsta deal with those student loans and divorce lawyer fees. Need to get better at slowing down and being present. Being ok with failure (or, being fine with having learned another way that it didn't work). Get into and finish grad skoo.
I ultimately seek family life and to build-up spirits, bridges and community in the process -- with a tight homie who knows that she is valuable in this world, to her community, to her friends/family and, eventually, to me and our beautiful black babies. Though, I'm optimistically practical about finding such up on this piece.
That said, I'm open to who you be as long as you be you, I be me, we do us as much as us can be. Ya dig?
