Five Star Mixtape 382: Three Great Blog Posts and a Paul Beatty Quote
This week's Five Star Mixtape great blog roundup is brought to you by knowledge of one's ancestors, the wages of depression, the value of sharing your work, and the recent winner of the Man Booker Prize, Paul Beatty:
If you knew how proud they are
that you made it to the age of 16…
Depression says no.
No to the coveted comforts of a double-income-no-kids household, no to furnishing the second bedroom now that we have one, no to partaking in city life, and — much to my husband’s chagrin — no to saving up for a home of our own, or indeed anything else.
It is a shame that it took me from 1981 to 2010 to imagine sharing anything that I wrote publicly.
