By: Gina

There are affiliate links in this post from which I may earn a small amount on purchases. Why is the question, β€œwhat do you want to be when you grow up?” only asked of children? For one, it’s not asked in all seriousness. After all, children only have an inkling of an idea of the […]

I. It’s a cliche, I know but my very first friend, that I rememberanyway, was a black girl. Herskin dark like polished obsidian, I remembershe was beautiful. Thinking on it now, it seemsunlikely, two little girls with contrastingtones β€” one dark, one light β€” skipping,skipping ’round the block withno care of the world. Then something happened. I no longer wanted to be her friend. I didn’t want her to be my friend. How can this be? We weren’t even inkindergarten yet. How can this be?We didn’t even know racism yet.How can this be? We were literal BFFs.How can this be?…

By: Gina

Every year I set a goal to read between 30-45 books. Last year, I set the goal at 45. I was 10 short but no matter. It was a great year for reading β€” and since I first started doing the Reading Challenge on Goodreads nine years ago, I’ve successfully completed two of my reading […]

Ride Report: 718c Micro Tour 3

18 June 2019 at 19:39
By: Gina
SUNSCREEN. Don’t knock it. If Micro Tour 2 was lush wonderland with green canopy providing cover from the harsh sun, Micro Tour 3 was its opposite: a beautiful ride under an unobstructed blanket of UV rays penetrating the Earth’s surface, and the breeze the only reprieve from the unceasing heat of the sun. The end […]
