This week, your favorite Black girl doing grad school finds herself in the midst of a rather rainy, but extremely well-timed, fall break. With six weeks of the semester plus two weeks of Omohundro training under my belt, it seemed like a good time to reflect on my experiences thus far.
My week started out rough. I passed out, injuring both my left eye and my poor glasses, and ended up missing my Monday class because, clearly, I had to make sure I hadn’t also dislocated my brain. I still managed to finish my readings for the rest of my classes with my one good eye, making sure to keep an ice pack on the other.
