"…I was not myself for weeks yet nobody noticed."
some books I ordered from Amazon last week:
This Is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz
teaching my mother how to give birth by Warsan Shire
No Sweetness Here by Ama Ata Aidoo
still looking for a book that changes me. maybe one of these is the one.
my name is Ojo
I’m always hiding behind other names, fearing that people won’t be able to pronounce mine or figure out I’m strange before they even meet me. Growing up, any name was better than my name. I always wanted to change over to my middle name, Evelyn, thinking that would suddenly help me fit in. But the world doesn’t need any more Annes and Kates. I’m going to do great things and people will have no choice but to learn how to pronounce my name.
