I saw a very faint rainbow on the bus and the little involuntarily gasp I gave when it reappeared told me that this is something that gives me pleasure. There seemed to be some significance in its faintness, I felt as if it was a metaphor for something I am trying to grasp at… Oh and this is not the rainbow I saw lol I was in grey north London at the time!
Livia and I planned to play badminton and go to a mediation and yoga lesson. This makes me happy because having better health is one of my goals for sept.
Ed and Claire will be leaving for foreign climes soon so it was lovely to have a nice chilled evening with them in Brixton.
Day 54 Seeing friends and eating great food at Charlotte’s birthday!
Day 56 Getting loads of rest!
Day 56 Cheeky twister in Clissold park after a great day at work.
I am thrilled that the feminist organisation Black feminists published my article on Black and Ethnic Minority women’s experiences at university. You can read the article here: http://www.blackfeminists.org/2014/06/19/black-womens-experiences-at-university/. Thank you to everyone that I interviewed, I hope that you find your stories faithfully portrayed.
Love the support I get from my friends. After a long day at work, it was so nice to see all the messages, encouragement and belief in what I am trying to do.
This quote (and a lot of support from my friends!) encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and do something new. The satisfaction I feel even the next morning is great. So do something differently, just try. A new understanding of yourself will emerge. There is nothing like feeling proud of yourself for doing something you feel is hard.
Catching up on my favourite programme. Thanks Howard!
Still reading A Suitable Boy and loving it! Love reading
Day 46 A brilliant and Impromtu night bowling w Devina.
Day 47 Got to spend the day with my darling sister Harmonie.
Day 48 Fathers day with the Mangal family. Look at those identical smiles.
Another great evening discussing The Millstone, feminism, politics, abortion rights and nakedness with great company. Lots of new people have joined feminist book club and I am pleased we are continuing to create a space for discussion several years later after we started the group.
There is a reason why I called this 100 days of love and not 100 days of happy. Some days you just don’t feel happy. However I am practising self love by getting organised and starting the process of being emotionally, physically and financially stronger by Sept.
This struggler (read old uni friend) came to visit leading to excellent tapas, struggles (me), and intellectual conversation late into the night. Excellent stuff.
Another old uni friend cooked me an amazing meal. Great food and a catch up in the sun, pottering around in his ‘mini garden’.
Impromptu ‘cup of tea’ with Howard and Tracy. Followed by curry and all the news from Gambia. And homemade peppermint tea. Happy days.
One of my favourite films ever! I love you channel 5. Perfect Sunday viewing.
