But who cares about Southern women?

I paused. Was this really a question? It seemed to be.

I’m reading an email sent from the dean of my graduate school, who is also my instructor. I’m working on my topic for my doctorate studies, and it includes southern women’s voices. Is it possible he’s being serious? Is it possible I must explain that yes, people care about Southern women?

This question I continue to answer two years later.


21 Birthday Affirmations

Today I’m sharing some birthday affirmations because it’s my birthday!

Birthdays are a big deal because they’re like your own personal new year. It’s a great time to set goals and intentions for your next trip around the sun. But as the excitement of your birthday starts to wane, your confidence in your goals might as well. That’s why I’m a fan of birthday affirmations. They help you establish the right mindset on Day One so you can stay in the right headspace for the next 12 months.
