I missed my train this morning (🙃) despite leaving my house super early. was i slightly annoyed? yes. (thanks, lyft!) but i’m not going to let this ruin my morning. my team and i are going to the big city for an education convening about our work and reception. i’m excited for that! so here’s to positive thoughts and good vibes. happy thursday, everybody!
In 2016, i had the honor of hearing aretha franklin sing while volunteering at an event. i’ve always been a fan of soul music and her, so it was surreal to hear her voice and see her in person. i went to the @ngadc yesterday to check out aretha franklin’s portrait. today is the last day you can see it, so go check it out if you can! rest in power to the queen of soul, @arethafranklin. 🎶
So. excited. to. see. stevie. wonder. 😭 #imanoldsoul —
update: the guy scanning my ticket was like “what do you know about stevie?!” and i told him i might be young but i’ve been listening to him forever. he’s a legend and my parents taught me well!!
[after concert update: it was amazing and i actually shed a tear hearing him play his harmonica and play some of my favorite songs.] #steviewondersongparty
