Day 57

We are reading Ebony and Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of America’s Universities, and I would be lying if I said I was engrossed in the text. On the contrary, I’m worn out from reading all of terrible attitudes and actions of people, mostly white people, described  in the book. I’m trying to blame the long Monday for my tired state rather than the readings. I was enjoying learning about HBCUs way more than I enjoyed this week’s reading. Certainly history isn’t always pretty. The present isn’t always pretty either.

This is shaping up to be another busy week. I am looking forward to tomorrow's Title IX Summit on campus followed by class at the Board of Regents. Maybe I will have more energy to write things tomorrow.

Something that made today great: I had such an adulty morning! I woke up and read on the couch while drinking coffee, then I had a productive day at work.

Time I woke up: 7:48 am. Not great, but not bad considering I was up late last night.
