Fashion. Podcasting. Cancer. Politics. A look back on 2017.

SUPER EFFING BUSY.

I’m not even joking – and unfortunately, right now I don’t have time to play catch-up. Here’s a summary of my 2017. For reasons that will rapidly become apparent, it begins in June. You may assume that the months before June also included “Activisting.”

June: Laid off in company-wide restructuring. Took the rest of the month off. Reconnected with self, family, and community. Activitsted.

July: Spent time with family. Looked for a job. Activisted.

August: Freelanced. Activsited.

September: Freelanced. Started a hyperlocal political podcast (radiofreebayridge.org) Activisted.

October: Freelanced. Got diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Also some rad podcast stuff. Also organized (along with my #ResistanceFam here in Bay Ridge) some pretty impressive (if I may say so myself) protests over the House’s passage of a bill to eliminate a woman’s right to bodily autonomy after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Here’s a video that was made of our first protest.

November: Freelanced. Had my thyroid out. Got to spend a few days with fam in NYC that I hadn’t expected, incl. the spawns. D’aw. And some rad podcast stuff.

December: Freelanced. Radioactive Iodine (RAI) treatment to destroy any remaining cancer cells. Hired onto the Omar Vaid for Congress campaign. More rad podcast stuff. Quit fashion in favor of politics.

2018:

…? (But definitely more rad podcast stuff. And politics.)

At any rate, dear reader friends, if you don’t hear from me here for a while, it’s because there’s a lot going on. It’s a good thing.

Whatever challenges you faced in 2017, I hope you you overcame them and got to spend more time reflecting on happy things than sad ones.

And may 2018 be even better!
