I honestly hadn’t realized it had been almost a year since I posted on my blog. Life… mercy.

Well, I picked up a Master’s in Africana Women’s Studies and now I am absolutely stupid happy that I am studying theatre again.

It’s midterms so I actually need to finish up on some papers due by the end of the week. I promise to be back in touch in less than two weeks.
