Preparing to die
It's weird to say  but in a way, I have spent most of my life with blinkers on - steadily, steadfastly, preparing to die. I am only just starting to learn how to live, really. Or to indulge in life. This episode is me poking at that idea and unraveling it out loud.

In the beginning
On navigating beginnings. And how long they are. And how most of the time you're driving them blind. But more than that, beginnings are this unspoken renegotiation of your relationship with the thing you're beginning.

Middle management (the other kind)
Being in the middle of something is hard. And right now, we're being thrust into a lot of non-negotiable, not-optional national and global middles, too, amidst our own. The bright side: Being forced into (the middle of) something, of anything, forces us to learn how to be okay there - even if we start out as not.

Follow the feeling
It's been one hell of a day--and week. I've had my feelings on high and I'm only *just* making my way through them. Hot tip if you're all feeled-out this week: Don't try to change the feels. Follow them.

It's brave to be afraid
In case you thought the opposite. In case you think that people who are brave don't get scared or feel fear. Because they do--lots. They just know how to Mr. Miyagi their way through it.

I don't really know where I'm from. You?
Born in London, England. Grew up in Ontario, Canada. My parents and grandparents are from East Africa. But if I never told you, you'd never know--because I don't look or sound like any of the above.

Your definition is too narrow
The time I broke up with my now-husband. And how that single break up conversation pointed me to a box I had carefully made for myself---a definition, that I was suffocating inside of.

A work in process
What is your personal process for making and doing things? Sometimes I am so head down in the muck of mine that I forget I'm in one. And that it will end. But also it starts up again on auto-repeat, if I'm not careful.

So yeah, I have a safe word
Husband says I used a bunch of safe words in this episode alone. How rude. But also, he's right. I'm a work in progress, people. How many did you count?

I'm actually a full time actress
Some people speak two languages. I speak in two accents. And I've spent most of my life hiding one from the other.

Someone tell me the rules, please
This episode I talk about rules. Invisible rules. The kind that make us give (unwarranted) side eye to "that guy over there" who is chewing way too loud, or that bully us into laughing at a joke we definitely do not think is funny but everyone else is laughing, so.

The one about #StayHome
#StayHome is hard. Not just because I thought I had Corona and freaked out. But also because staying home means no distractions. No escape, really. It's down to me and the mini horror series in my head I call my thoughts.
