Ethnobotany progress report #4

ImageWell my first semester went well and now I start the second this coming Monday.  The first semester was a challenge – I took too many classes (four! which were all, well, mostly great!), and I was too busy working to get that lana to pagar esos biles, and I wasn’t able to keep up my quality of life with community organizing work, not enuf time to digest/take in and make total sense of everything, but I have no regrets.  I learned tons, the readings, well, not all, were great and mind expanding, I made vibin new connections, had some nice spaces to think, articulate and write how community is at the center of it all, supported and expanded my arguments better, learned lots of connections, had great convos, got lots of perspective and traveled lots of worlds.

ImageNow, with more breathing room this semester, I will be able to dive back in to Taking Back da Bronx! and balancing out my learning, prepare for my first exam, integrating my framework with which to do my ethnobotany project, which means I have to prep la movida, because in 2014, field & community work here I go!

I am well aware of how blessed I am, to have the opportunities I have and have had which my communities those I have earned, to learn so many things, to be in the thick of it, to be resisting every step of the way, some dance steps too, Imageand to have the bestest friends and counting in the universe.

I can’t see how it can get any better than that!  But, maybe it will!
