I've been in a weird spot recently with so much going on and so many thoughts on each topic. And because of this so much, I've found myself unable to properly sit down and really put to words the emotions and thoughts attached with each event or post.
How the shootings in Baton Rouge and Minneapolis, highlighted in Justine's post corresponded with a small claims court case where the man suing our condo association repeated use racist and bigoted terminology in the court room. Of a decade of harassment and abuse coming to a close due to the rulings of a judge.
Or about Mali's recent series on "Putting your mind to it" brought up my own reflections on privilege and unspoken advantages.
Or how Mel's recent posts on Truman have me teary-eyed while remembering the two furry ones I lost too soon.
Or this post has me remembering the pain for not so long ago.
And then there's the high from having to turn down two amazing job opportunities because I'm not ready to transition out of this postdoc. But to maintain those connections with the goal of actually building more opportunities next year.
Too many thoughts. Too much emotion. Hopefully my thoughts will sort out soon.
