365 Project - Week 38

257 : September 14

I drive by this spot fairly often and I have a goal of climbing up the ridge on the left and taking photos, but I haven’t yet figured out if that’s something I can do. More on the bravery side and not the physical action.

258 : September 15

This Saturday we floated on a unicorn. It didn’t have a long enough anchor so we floated out to the middle of the lake. We were rescued by a kind boat driving by after break both our paddles. Definitely a good way to spend an afternoon!

259 : September 16

Just a day on the couch playing video games recovering from sunburn.

260 : September 17

When you’re 31 years old and should really know better. Sunscreen before leaving the house! Day two, still barely moving.

261 : September 18

Walking into the library today I had a brave moment, where I took a book I really wanted to keep longer but could no longer hold online and spoke to the librarian. I asked them to extend my hold and they did AND then I asked where the poetry section was. I was directed upstairs, where I have only been once and found a huge section on poetry and yoga. I got a few books all of which I hope are amazing. The funny part about this, that in my nervousness from talking and exploring a new area I totally forgot to pick up my library holds, so now I have to go back tomorrow!

The books I got - The Complete Collected of Poems of Maya Angelou (soooo excited for this!), Sonata Mulattica by Rita Dove, Big Fit Girl by Louise Green, The Pure Heart of Yoga by Robert Butera Ph.D, Yoga XXL by Ingrid Kollak RN PhD, and A History of Women Photographers by Naomi Rosenblum.

262 : September 19

Oh rain, how I love you and how this city doesn’t really need you.

263 : September 20

Just a little yoga at a new spot. It’s a cold room which is hard but I like the teacher and I like exploring others interpretations of my favorite thing. It’s nice to be back to moving. After the sunburn I didn’t work out for three days. Meant watching instead of participating for my class on Monday. But I was able to participate Wednesday and now I’m back into the full swing of things.

This weeks what I read

How One Expensive Skirt Made Me Consider My Class Status
No One Is Ever “So Busy” - It Only Depends On How Important You Are To Them - this hit home with me.
Burning [Open Source] Libraries, Why Tech and Enterprise Seek to Bring a Newer Jim Crow to the Internet
Matt McGorry - a Sociologist Examines the “White Fragility” that Prevents White Americans from Confronting Racism
Rachel Cargle - How do children of color learn to draw themselves
The Christians Making Atheists - feels pretty accurate, at least regarding my experience. Christian behavior made me question if there was another way.
What if All I Want is a Mediocre Life? - I like how this article wraps up, it reflects how I’ve been feeling and what I’ve been wanting to express far better than I ever could have done.
The One Place You Probably Haven’t Decluttered - yup!
Everything You Know About Obesity Is Wrong - such a great read!
Dying Fat - twitter thread via Militant Baker and a YouTube Video

Happy Friday!
