Considering the challenging issues that face San Francisco such as gentrification, poverty, digital and educational inequity, and entrepreneurship.

It’s been over a month and my aspiration of writing more regularly has taken a back seat to the rest of the work and projects I’ve been concentrating on. In any case, I’m going to TRY and consistently bring content onto my blog that not only resonates with me, but with you as well. There are SO many things going on and some incredible projects coming up in the next couple of months and one coming to a close (i.e., working on creative writing project, meeting and editing contributors’ work for the new asterisk magazine, and a well received exhibition). But I have learned, rather quickly, that I can’t afford to burn out due to my inability to say “no.” It’s tough, but I’m learning.

Lessons learned (for the year thus far): I have to respect and honor “me” time (this includes writing for myself and as a creative outlet). I’m trying. In the meantime, I WANT this skill (see GIF).
