10 on the 10th is hosted by Marsha at Marsha in the Middle. In the tradition of old school blogging, she’ll share a list of ten questions or prompts to help us get to know each other better. The linkup goes live on the tenth of the month.

THE PROMPT: Name 10 things you may do this Summer

  • I’ll be attending a Harlem Renaissance themed graduation party this weekend. I’m so excited. The Harlem Renaissance is one of my favorite cultural eras. And the fashions were just *chef’s kiss* perfection.
  • Our commencement ceremony is this month and I have the sneaking suspicion that I’ll be taking the pictures. If so, this’ll be the second year. I get so incredibly nervous because it’s like a wedding — you only have one chance to get the shot.
  • I’m going to submit a presentation for our annual conference. I’m so nervous. If it’s accepted, I’ll be presenting on how libraries can support diversity, equity, and inclusion on college campuses.
  • I may actually work out for a complete week. I found out this week that I’ve had my Peloton for 30 weeks. That means I should be down 30 lbs. Instead I’ve gained 10 lbs. I’m so incredibly frustrated with my weight issue.
  • So I found out the hard way that I’m not in menopause. Another disappointment. So I guess I may be in perimenopause.
  • I may be planning a road trip with 2 of my daughters to visit my youngest daughter. The girls and I haven’t had a mother-daughters road trip in years.
  • I may start wearing lipstick again. I stopped when we started masking up. I still wear a mask, but I miss wearing lipstick. I’m gonna try something budge proof.
  • I may buy some curtains for the house. I’ve always been anti-curtain, but HGTV has me rethinking my position.
  • I may take a film course. I love photography, but I’d really like to learn how to shoot short videos.
  • I may take the Wednesday after the series finale of This Is Us off to recuperate. Y’all, I have watched this show without fail for six years. I cannot believe it has been six years. Anyway, I’m emotionally invested in this family. I’m tied to these people. And knowing that I won’t see them anymore is eating me up inside. That being said, it’s time for the show to end. it’s still on top and it still gets me in the feels.
