Today was a blur until we had Joshua Hathaway’s lecture. It was so powerful and medicinal to hear. His views on colonialism and euro-centrism and religion got to me on such a high level. I really needed someone to help me decolonize my mind a little bit more. It was so needed. Some people had very different views on it and took the talk a little too personally but no matter what they think, I completely agree with Joshua’s views. 100%. We had writing with Katherine Watkins and we had these exercises where we would listen to a certain song and write according to how the song made us feel emotionally. A lot of the songs I knew and brought me back to some childhood memories, the ones that scarred me for life. But it was medicinal to reflect on my past and see where i am today. I’m proud.
