It’s come to my attention that some of our readers might be slightly interested in a “day-in-the-life” of Black Girl Dangerous post. So, I put together this photo montage to share some of our daily goings-on with y’all.
Usually, Janani and I start off the day looking thoughtful.
At some point, usually around 10 am, one of us puts on a mask while the other holds a candle.
Then we switch.
After lunch, we hold oranges (or sometimes handfuls of arugula) and Janani looks at my orange (or arugula) suspiciously. I don’t know why. I’ve asked them to stop, but they won’t.
Around two, we have a staff meeting and I gently express feedback about Janani’s work performance.
That’s pretty much it.
Oh, wait! We also spend hours and hours writing, editing, doing web maintenance, moderating the FB page, reading submissions, bookkeeping, fundraising, deleting hate-emails, appreciating love-emails, producing events, doing grant research, planning workshops, changing the face of media, and generally pouring our hearts and souls into Black Girl Dangerous!
It’s exhausting. So, sometimes I take a nap.
Not Janani, though. They never sleep.
Please DONATE to Black Girl Dangerous and help us keep this up!
