When I first started my podcast, the name of it was “the clique” which was the whole premise of the podcast in the first place. As we get older, who do we surround ourselves with, who are our true friends we’ve made over the years? This is one of my favorite episodes. Take a listen, in case you missed it the first time. Enjoy!
Listen as I reflect on my graduation 30 years ago and provide some modern day adulting tips for today.
Listen as I share my thoughts on my path and journey to substitute teaching, being childfree, and some humor from the classroom.
Just a quick shout out to my listeners on my birthday, 3/31/1973. Listen as I share my day and how you should make sure you take advantage of your rewards programs when your birthday rolls around.
Listen as I recap my funny discussion with middle schoolers and their reaction to the Grammy Awards.
In recent years we’ve seen reading and books take many forms, from the likes of a company, Amazon, selling books online to reading books on electronic devices to listening to books via audio apps, reading, thankfully, is still a thing! I, for one, have let my love for reading, fall by the wayside over the last few years, however, for 2021, I am vowing to read more. My favorite reading material today includes multicultural literature, poetry, cookbooks, and magazines. But when I was younger, I had different reading tastes. Also, if you are 40 and over, much of what we read was required reading for class.
I was a Scholastic junkie back in the day. As a poet, my favorite book was Honey, I Love by Eloise Greenfield and the Shel Silverstein books, including Where The Sidewalk Ends. For fiction, I loved To Kill A Mockingbird and the older Judy Blume books like Superfudge. And I’m dating myself, but back in the day many of the children’s movies were often accompanied by a recording (on LP record) and a read-a-long book. I had alot of those.
I saw this discussion in a Facebook group @bgrtbookclub (Black Girls Read Too) and thought I would borrow it and continue the conversation here! Whether it’s ONE book or a LIST of books that launched your love of reading, please share. Can’t wait to see your books! #LetsDiscuss #40AndOver #moderndayadulting #ReadABook #readingisfundamental
