Rabbit Rabbit Pussycats!
In my house we say "rabbit rabbit" on the first of every month for good luck, and this month I will most certainly need it. IT'S FEBRUARY! You know what that means!?!
- A) BIRTHDAY MONTH, I'll finally be turning 21, after almost 21 years of not being 21 I think I'm more than ready to have a specialty drink / burger sliders combination at my local Chilis, okay? It's also my mothers birthday, my best friend Elise's birthday, and like a million other friends of mine's birthday.
- B) IT'S VALENTINES DAY MONTH! Only my favorite holiday of all time, it's about love, and hearts, and frills, and chocolate and puppies and cliches and GAH, I simply adore it.
- C) BLACK HISTORY MONTH, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther King Jr, Malcom X, Madam CJ Walker, Whoopi Goldberg, Lil B, Trayvon Martin, BEYONCE, we live in a society that teaches history from the white male perspective, but every February it's extremely important to remember the amazing scholars, authors, poets, performers, scientists etc who made a huge impact in our country and the world despite a long brutal history of discrimination, racism, violence and everyday prejudice, that I, as a white person could never even properly fathom. It's important during a month like this to own our privilege and work to not only remember those who've made an impact before us but to also teach people who are unaware of their legacies.
Safe to say, I'm a smidge excited.
