A Long Post About A Short Trip
A Semi-Regular Update: We Went To Rome!
Hello Friends! Here is a little travel blog post from my recent trip to Rome! These little updates are a thank-you for being a paid subscriber and supporter of my work. It really means a lot to me as an independent writer and Black creator. If you want to get in on these posts, but don’t have the funds, just send me an email! Scholarship posts are paid for by the generosity of yearly subscribers.
Okay, so, last time we talked, I was preparing to fly to Rome for the Italian launch of So You Want To Talk About Race. I am very afraid of flying in general and especially of flying overseas, which really sucks because I love exploring new places, and travel is a big part of my job.
I had been working with my therapist for a few weeks to prepare for this flight and I also started a new anxiety med a few weeks before that (if you want to hear more about this in a separate post, let me know in the comments). And y’all, I’m so happy to report some real success here.
