This summer has truly been an adventure. Living on the east coast offers so many opportunities to explore new places! So far I’ve been to Harper’s Ferry, DC, Baltimore (of course), and a few places in between! I’ll be going to Brooklyn in a couple weeks for AfroPunk and I am beyond excited. I’ve never been to New York before, and this trip will kinda fulfill bucket list requirements.
Also, I’m loving the greater percentage of black residents on the east coast, as compared to Colorado. Don’t get me wrong — I absolutely love Colorado and I will probably end up settling down here — but there something about having your own hair section at Walmart that really makes you feel at home, ya know? So AfroPunk may arguably be the first time I attend a “conference” where black people are the majority. Feels.
