Hello, dear readers! I’ve been so exhausted and preoccupied over the last few days that I haven’t even put up any of the posts I had preprepared for such eventualities! Which is a bit ridiculous. Anyhow, I thought I would mix it up a little and entertain you with an audio post. That way you are distracted by the novelty and don’t even realise that there is actually no substantial content. I’m immensely clever, what can I say.
Anyway, the reason I’ve been run off my feet is that I have moved for the third time in six months. Could my life get any more ridiculous? I sincerely hope not. I hope you all are having a more relaxing time of it. Today I am just going to be here except for a quick trip to the local shops, so hopefully I will get some writing done. Most of that will probably not be for this blog, alas, but for a super exciting secret project that I will announce probably, um… Sunday? We will see.
The other thing I’m trying to start thinking about is a project I want to kick off at Feministe this (southern) summer, where I just spam them with race posts in hopes that I will no longer have to deal with the clueless cluelessness in comments there. I’m having trouble coming up with topics to write about, though. Most of what I’m writing is too personal for a space like that – don’t worry, I’ll post it here. And I’m also going to try open a discussion about how racialisation differs across national and cultural boundaries, but I can see that going really badly.
So right now I am essentially in a bit of a stagnant spot, with a continual splitting headache, waiting to begin.
I hope this recording works!
